"Honestly, I'm still undecided on this product. I found the packaging to be vague and contradictory. The side of the box states it contains Snap-8, and ingredient 'proven to be 30% more potent than Argireline in reducing the appearance of wrinkles.' While the back of the box talks of the benefits of Argireline, as 'an alternative to injections, works to reduce the appearance of facial expression lines'. However it is not included in the ingredients listing, not under its trade name nor its chemical name. So why is it mentioned? Is it an ingerdient or not?
I also would have appreciated a comment in regards to whether it is safe to use during the day. ie. When we are exposed to UV rays. And do the benefits last? Or does it only work when it is applied to the skin?
But most importantly, does it work? Yes, and no.
The cream smells pleasant, in a nondescript skincare product way. The consistency of the cream is such that when squuezed from the tube (through a fine pointed nozzel that allows you to slowly measure the exact amount required. Genius!) it sits on the skin exactly where applied, meaning there is no wastage with product sliding onto skin that doesn't need it.
I found, for best results, I would squeeze it straight onto the skin and let it sit on my wrinkles for a minute, before gently patting into the skin. Despite the packaging stating that I would notice a difference within 10 minutes, I thought it was a few applications, over several days, before I noticed a positive difference. And not all areas of my face reacted the same. The lines around my mouth where plumped out to great effect, and I'm really happy with how these 'laughter' lines seem to have diminished. I've not had the same experience on my forehead though. Those frown lines haven't changed, especially the furrow between my eyebrows. As for the lines around my eyes, the product plumps up the skin to give me the look of puffy eyes, still with crows feet! I'm wondering if the difference is due to the tightness of skin in the varying areas.
Personally I'd prefer an anti-wrinkle cream that I can use with equally positive results all over my face. At least this tube still has a lot of product in it. I think I will be using this for many months yet, but I am not sure if I will repurchase it, probably only if it begins to work on my frown lines as well as it has worked for my laughter lines. For the price I want something that I can use on my eye area as well."
Would you buy it? Maybe, if it was on sale
