Sorry, this competition is now closed
I am not totally unfamiliar with Silicone to treat scars and skin lesions.
I have been applying, on and off, silicone strips over my scar that was left behind when my porta cath was taken out. (an under the skin disk that feeds directly into the artery to make it easier to inject chemo therapy. Veins have a way of disappearing after a while of prodding and poking with a needle.)
Silicone has healing properties by adding extra moisture to the area, whether it is scars or lines. It also stimulates the production of collagen, whilst flattening the raised scar area.
So, when I read about Wrinkles Schminkles to treat those horrible horizontal lines that are evident in the morning on the décolletage, I was instantly hooked and was dying to try it.
Gabrielle Requena, founder of Wrinkles Schminkles, was kind enough to send me a kit to try and ONE FOR ONE LUCKY READER TO RECEIVE!!
For those that have no clue what I am on about, just think of this.
Skin is like bread.
Fresh bread, is pliable and bouncy, and when squeezed will bounce back to its original size.
Old or stale bread however, will stay the way it is squeezed. For quite a while anyway. Cumulative sun exposure is the leading cause of damage – we lose elastin as we get older, and the sun has left its mark with brown spots and redness.
When sleeping – especially those side sleepers – the skin creases. Creases = lines.
This is what it says on the Wrinkles Schminkles Website:
You can’t stop time but you can slow it down with our Wrinkles Schminkles Silicone Chest Decollette Pads. Your chest wrinkles and décolleté and décolletage wrinkles can be caused by sleeping on your side, ageing and sun damage.
Our clear, Silicone Chest Wrinkle Pads – worn while you sleep (because we know you’ve got more important things to do when you’re awake) – are the perfect non-invasive chest wrinkles treatment and work effectively to smooth out your chest, cleavage, decollette and décolletage wrinkles – leaving you feeling and looking younger and full of confidence. Apply to your delicate chest area, and it’ll work while you sleep to relieve and visibly soften wrinkles, so you wake up looking refreshed and ready to start each day with confidence.
Wrinkles Schminkles Silicone Chest Decollette Pads perform a simple little miracle, every day that they’re a part of your night.
Wrinkles? Wrinkles Schminkles.
I hate those pesky horizontal lines.
This is what they look like when I wake up. “I woke up like this”
It was extremely easy to use:
- Cleanse and dry the area,
- Peel the plastic film off the heart shape (aww) pad, and expose the self adhesive side and apply directly on clean, un-moisturised skin.
This is how I woke up:
An hour later, after my shower and after moisturising.
I have not used filters or Photoshop. These are real photos and are not retouched. The lighting is a little different because the natural light was a little different!
The lines stayed away all day.
The Silicone Pad is reusable and will last for 20-30 uses. Just wash it once a week and store when dry in the packaging provided.
I love this product. A simplistic, easy, practical way of getting rid and preventing lines on the chest. No creasing, no lines! Makes sense, no?
Would I buy this? Absolutely.
And I am dying to try the Forehead and Eye Smoothing Kit and the Neck kit. For those people who have had a history of smoking, the Mouth Smoothing Kit may just be that product you have been looking for.!
Put away that scarf, and put away that turtleneck. Flaunt that smooth chest. But please use an SPF30+ to protect, because sun damage is permanent.
Buy online at Wrinkles Schminkles or check their site for stockists in your area.
I have been gifted a Chest Smoothing Kit valued at $35.95 and the clever people of Wrinkles Schminkles have also given me one to give to one of my readers.
Leave a comment below to enter the random draw (sorry Australian Residents only this time), and I will draw a name on Sunday night to rush one to you before Christmas Day.
Would you like one of these? Of course you do!
