Snoxin Review – better than botox?

The first I heard of Snoxin was when I opened an envelope and it flopped out onto my desk at work.  It is the sister product to Nanoblur but Indeed Labs.  Impressed as I was initially by Nanoblur I couldn’t use it long term as it contained so much silicone which makes my skin very dry.

Snoxin is the skincare anti ageing product vs the Nanoblur instant gratification product.  Snoxin is the treatment that you would use before your moisturiser in the am and pm to treat the appearance of fine lines and It has the highest allowable concentration of anti-aging peptides however why does Snoxin therefore contain silicone too and quite a lot considering it’s near the top of the list of ingredients? It claims to be 4x better than $500 serums but that’s a bit of an empty claim when the $500 serum might also be crap?

Ingredients in Snoxin: Water / Aqua / Eau, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Sodium Acrylate/Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Acetyl Octapeptide-3, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate, Isohexadecane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Polysilicone-11, Polysorbate 80, Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol

You can read the full information from Indeed Labs here  and there are also some pictures.  The bottom line for me is, it contains so much silicone that it makes my skin dry – therefore making it look more liney rather than less!  If you don’t have a problem with silicone then by all means give this a go but I think Nanoblur is a better product and £10 cheaper (£19.99 vs the Snoxin’s £29.99).

For long term anti ageing look for a true anti ageing product. I would personally stick to Retinol, Quercetin and Glycolic Acid products. Preferably from a well known brand with published clinical results. Dermatologists have recommended Roc and Skinceuticals products to me before for both Retinol (vitamin A) and Glycolic products and I like to use Korres’s Quercetin and Oak moisturiser.
