We all know that wearing sunscreen is an essential step in our skincare routines, but many of us still don’t like applying it. The wrong sunscreen formula can be cold, thick, and well, a little boring. Let’s face it, applying sunscreen is nowhere near as exciting as applying a mermaid highlighter. If you’re looking for a sunscreen that is about as far away from boring as you can get, KFC has launched a chicken-scented one. No joke.
Everyone’s favorite fried chicken place has launched the Extra Crispy Sunscreen SPF 30. The sunscreen doesn’t just smell like any old fried chicken, it smells like the extra crispy variety. Just let that sink in for a moment. Just note that it may smell like chicken, but it is not edible. As Colonel Sanders says in the ad, “It smells like chicken. It tastes like sunscreen.”
Foodie beauty fans might remember that KFC previously launched chicken-scented nail polishes. The brand has also gotten into the fashion game with chicken corsages. The Extra Crispy Sunscreen now has KFC delving into the world of skincare.
If you’re dying to try some of the chicken-scented sunscreen, the bad news is that it has already sold out. For real. The sunscreen was only available on the KFC website and it literally flew off the metaphorical shelves. (Chicken pun fully intended.) It seems like there is as much as a demand for sunscreens that smell like fried chicken as there for Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits. Who would have thought?
Given the success of the nail polish and sunscreen, it is safe to say that KFC is probably already at work on its next beauty product. Who else is hoping for a lipstick? That fried chicken would make a lovely nude lip color, and you know it would taste damn good.
