OH NOES! Teh T0X1N5!

I was reading the bottle of one of Vanessa’s cosmetics. They’re always good for a laugh.

Olay Regenerist(tm) Daily Regenerating Cleanser provides the beautifully regenerated look of a detoxifying mini-professional treatment…Oxygenated derma-bead formula gently removes dead skin surface cells to detoxify.

Excuse me while I choke on the pseudoscience! It’s like cosmetics has its own leetspeak. And when someone warns of the generic dangers of “toxins’, my crank alarm usually goes off. What toxins? You mean like necrotizing fascitis? Perhaps some dangerous neurotoxin? How’d that get on my face? Oh, you just mean something like a bad humour?
