Well Hello you gorgeous humans!
This is a topic VERY close to my heart.
So if you are not superficial like me – look away now.
Because, I’m more than ok with us all being different.
I understand that wrinkles and the latest beauty/fashion releases are not on everyone’s radar.
I’m honky dorey with that too!.
If you don’t drool over the latest must-haves promising you the earth – brilliant.
But if you’re a bit interested in finding a way to combat/improve your pesky little wrinkles (or large deep welts in my case) you have come to the right place.
Just consider this edit pure Wrinkle Heaven.
A place where we can indulge our collective wrinkle/ageing worries without fear or ridicule.
Ok beauties, let’s do this.
Firstly, there is so much involved in achieving good skin.
Believe me, there is certainly no quick fix.
Food plays a huge role – let’s face it, you are what you eat.
Yep, everyone needs to get the fundamentals right.
A balanced diet, lots of fluids and plenty of zzzzzzz’s are always the first priority. Yes, I eat lots of naughty things and I
LOVE like a glass of wine (or two). But overall, my diet is pretty good.
Adopting a great skin care routine (that works for YOU) is also high on the extremely important list too.
Now I don’t want to harp-on, but I do put a lot of effort in to my skin.
It’s taken a while for me to fine-tune products that I’m loving.
Products that are working for me.
My dry skin is soaking up (pun very much intended) the attention.
Like most people though, I still have many ‘if only moments’.
If only I could turn back the ticking clock of time, I would of course do things differently.
But, anyone who knows me well, will also know I’m not one for living in the past.
You can’t change what’s gone, but you can improve tomorrow, if you’re prepared to put in the hard yards.
Now girls how many of you are side sleepers?
I also have boobs that are no longer capable of defying gravity.
I sleep on my left side…my dermatologist can confirm my crow’s-feet are way worse on this side of my face.
Most of you also already know I have botox twice a year on this area too.
Botox only lasts 3 months or so for me, which means, I need to be complementing this with a back up plan.
So can you imagine me delight when I first heard about Wrinkles Schminkles?
A high-grade silicone product that I can sleep in.
That keeps my skin place.
Now if you saw my IG post you will already know I gave poor Jonny the shock of his life when he woke to find my face and chest covered in silicone.
Yep. I hear you. Poor Jonny.
No. It was not a pretty sight – trust me even I wasn’t brave enough to share the picture.
But I say, who the hell cares what you look like while you’re asleep?
Super easy to use too:
All you do is make sure the skin is clean, dry and product free.
Peel off the plastic attached – it will reveal a sticky side.
Place the stick side directly on to the skin.
What I can tell you though, is I like these products A LOT.
With commitment from YOU they can work.
Remember, everything that is good, requires the effort.
Beauty certainly does not come with a quick fix.
I have seen a great improvement from using both of these products though.
My 52-year-old décolletage doesn’t look too bad all considering.
Note: my before pic seems to have disappeared off my phone. I think the results are obvious, even without the before pic.
Yes, my crow’s-feet do receive help from Botox but my forehead doesn’t – I’ve never been injected there.
Hello my friend the fringe 😉
But what I really love about these products, is simple.
They hold the skin in place while you sleep.
Did you know silicone also helps encourage the production of collagen as well as promoting healing?
So much fabulousness in one little product eh?
Pricewise, I recon they are pretty good value too.
Each piece will give between 20-30 uses. If you buy the cleaning solution, you can elongate the life of these easily.
I can tell you one thing for sure, had the Wrinkles Schminkles products been around years ago – I would have happily invested in them.
Ahem *cough-cough* Wrinkles Schminkles if you fancy making a silicone onesie, I’m so your girl 😉
Yep, I’ll happily be your lab-rat!
Anyway, to celebrate all things silicone and fabulous, I have a giveaway of both of the products I have trialled and loved.
