Botox in a tube

I might have mentioned before  what a sucker I am how much I love products that promise to help erase my crows feet laughter lines.

As soon as I hear/read about  a new product, I can’t resist the temptation to try.

Love at first sight {image} comes to mind.

My fingers instantly jump for joy on my keyboard, in time with my ever increasing heart-beat, in my quest to find out more information.

You see, my relationship with my laughter lines goes back along way, we are old buddies…personally, I would have been more than happy to part company years ago, but no, it seems we were destined to be soul-mates – Dry skin is always a bugger – even when youth is on your side.

Continually parched – best describes my skin type.

That’s without even mentioning that in times of stress, my dry skin invites his friend psoriasis around to gang up on me – lets just say when the dryness turns itchy, flaky and sore – its not a good look at all.

The one thing I don’t have though, is fear of trying something new. In fact, its quite the opposite – because if a product can improve my dodgy skin it must be good.

I have been using the Alpha H range as I mentioned in this post – my skin has improved.

Last Christmas I also tried Botox for the first time – Ah-ma-zing {I will write a separate post about this soon}.

So what am I raving about this time?

Botox in a tube

Middle Product: Pretox Infin8 $156.40 Right Product: Pretox Eyelift $79.00

Left hand side: Free Sample Medik8 Retinol 3TR

As we all know Botox is pretty expensive {even more so in Australia}. I thought long and hard before making the call to book the appointment to get it done.

There is no doubting the fact that it works – but like everything, it might not be for everyone.

I have only ever had it done once, but the results were great. I didn’t look frozen or false. I still had a few lines, but the heavy duty wrinkles were gone. I loved the result.

The effect lasted about 4/5 months.

So when I read about the Pretox injection free range from Medik8 I knew instantly I wanted to try the product.

As we age, communication diminishes within the skin, resulting in decreased collagen production and an accumulation of degraded elastin fibres. Medik8 offers a range of products containing a high doses of peptides {protein fragments made up of amnio-acids} Peptides act as messengers in the skin, basically allowing the epidermis and dermis to talk to each other.

Pretox Infin8

30% stronger than  Pretox 20 and aimed at peeps over 40 years old. Sadly I fall in to this category!

Once applied the product offers an instant lifting effect that can last for up to 24 hours.

I apply a thin layer after cleansing and allow to soak in {about 10 minutes}  before adding my normal moisturiser and make-up.

Pretox Eyelift

An intensive cream-serum formula to combat wrinkles and loss of firmness around the eyes – again provides instant lifting for up to 24 hours.

Applied identically to the Pretox Infin8 after cleansing.

I have been using both products for the last ten days. It is recommended that you use sparingly on a daily basis to achieve the desired effect.

My sensitive skin has had no reaction at all.

So far so good.

I will let you all know my final impression after I have used the products for 30 days.

P.S – Did I mention before that I adore a freebie? Love them!

I’m also trying the sample of the Medik8 Retinol 3TR at night too – No reaction from this little bottle of goodness either!

Have you tried Botox? Or do you know anyone that has?
