Almost all of the unlikely seeming beauty treatments the Queen undergoes are actually real treatments you can get at spas all over the world. Among the real ones are: the bird poop paste, the chocolate (or clay, it's not clear which it is since it's brown) mask, the snake massage, the snail slime, the maggots and the tiny fishes that eat away dead skin cells. One of the few (if not the only) fake treatments shown is the bee sting to the lips to plump them up, although lip plumpers really do contain (usually botanical or chemical, not insectoid) irritants.

It would warm my ancient heart if you could accept this modest gift on your wedding day.

That's very kind of you.
Just one bite for good fortune. To the fairest of them all.
Age before beauty. It's important to know when you've been beaten, yes?
So it was Snow White's story after all.

First off: See this with a good set of friends. Half of the charm for me was turning to my best friends and seeing the look of horror on their faces when they realized what I had dragged them to. Here are the reasons I like this:
A. Costumes were cute. They were supposed to be wild and outlandish but I found myself really strangely attracted to the dresses. B. Julia Roberts who? The dwarfs were where it was at! They completely stole the show. C. It's not supposed to be "stick to the storyline" type of deal because it's not serious and doesn't take itself too seriously. D. Lily was adorable. With that sort of big name character it's really hard to keep it simple like she did. E. The innuendos that the children don't understand will crack you up and no worries parents... they won't pick up on them. F. People said it was bad. This might be the hipster in me but... I was really glad that I didn't think it was.
