The nostalgia train has been chugging along, full steam ahead, of late. We’ve seen things like a Beavis and Butthead revival in the works, The Proud Family heading back to our screens, and Play-Doh sets that invoke our inner ’90s child. Even Steve from Blue’s Clues came back to give us a hug. And now, another one of our childhood dreams can come true. The Oscar Mayer brand has released an Oscar Mayer bologna face mask. That we can wear on our face just like the real thing.
Who among us hasn’t DIY-ed our own bologna face mask? Now we can have all the fun of looking like we’ve emerged from a horror movie… with none of the meat scent. Although honestly, we would have laughed if these masks did have an Eau de bologna. It just feels right somehow.
But, alas, we’ll have to make the real deal for that. But instead, these face masks offer us the “cold-cut of self-care.” The description for the product shares, “Witch Hazel Botanical and seaweed-derived ingredients protect and hydrate. Collagens lock in moisture and promote skin elasticity. Bologna-design induces unparalleled serotonin surges and a prolific amount of selfies.” And, true. The selfie potential is endless. Bet most us didn’t have that option when we were five.
Lindsey Ressler, Sr. Marketing Analyst, Oscar Mayer notes in a release, “Inspired by those who used to playfully make masks out of their bologna as kids, this product was born as a modern-day way to spark smiles for fans of Oscar Mayer and beauty enthusiasts alike.”
And most of all, the Oscar Mayer bologna face mask brings “bologna bliss” to those of us who love a slightly absurd but very nostalgic product. The bologna face masks even come in meat-like packaging. Delicious. But Oscar Mayer wants to remind you not to eat your bologna face masks. This is a delight for your skin, not your sandwich.
These bologna face masks are now on sale for the deli self-care inclined.
