Skincare Worth The Splurge – With Nadine Baggott

ruth crilly and nadine baggott

Goodness me, this is a naughty one! I’m afraid those who are on the sensitive side should probably give this video with Nadine Baggott a miss – not only do we launch into an in-depth discussion about pubic hair preferences, Nadine introduces me to Scrotox.

Not literally, because I don’t have a scrotum (also I think that a video showing botox on a man’s genitalia might get flagged up as inappropriate) but in the sense that I was once blissfully unaware that this procedure existed and now I am not.

Why, oh why would you try and uncrease a part of your body that is so creased and wrinkly? It’s like trying to smooth out an elephant’s trunk or iron used tissue paper: once wrinkly, always wrinkly. Also, who is honestly staring at that particular man part and wondering whether it would look better a bit smoother? Like a ripe plum, perhaps (pair of), or an ostrich egg.

(Oh my God, I’ve just Google-Imaged an ostrich egg. They are absolutely ginormous. You wouldn’t want two of those hanging about in your pants, regardless of how pleasingly smooth.)

Anyway, Nadine and I do get around to the subject of skincare in this video (via Jamie Dornan and burger baps) so it’s a nice one to sit down and make mental notes on, even if you don’t want the (borderline x-rated) banter. Share, like, leave a comment – let me know what you’d like me to film with Nadine next time. The most requested thing is a person – Caroline – but she’s harder to pin down than a moth at a disco.

    Hilarious as always! It makes me feel like I’m catching up with friends listening to you two. It’s also making me want a glass of wine..probably shouldn’t watch these videos at work…. ho hum…
    On a beauty note, I’m a massive fan of the Good Genes Glycolic Acid serum, but not tried the lactic one, so will brace myself for the smell and give it a go!

    I love this video! I love how natural and unplanned they always seem, but in a good way! Can we add Caroline Hirons to the mix and I’ll never watch anything else.

    Loved the video. I am hearing a lot about Drunk Elephant nowadays. I hope new year brings it to me :)

    I was unaware of Scrotox until watching the video too, and I am not sure my life is better now that I know about it.
