Now that I’m a woman of a certain age I’ve started to obsess about things that could fall apart on my body.  Or should I say, obsess about preventing things from falling apart. The biggest part of my body is my skin and the older I get, the more attention it needs. I realize I’m not 20 and I don’t expect my face to look like it. I just want to look good where I’m at. You know, #AgeGoals.

That’s why when the good folks at Simply Venom reached out and asked me to give their skincare line a try I was up for the task. The first thing I did was read about the people who created it and learn what it’s all about. And I can tell you, this ain’t your mama’s moisturizer.

Simply Venom was created by two anesthesiologists with 35 years of medical expertise between them. Dr. Monica Lilore and Dr. Milija Milic are highly trained and skilled in the use of muscle relaxants. So why is this important when we’re talking about skincare? Because they found a way to create a non-invasive anti-aging solution to not only make your skin soft, but fight against the signs of aging.

My before picture…yikes!

The Simply Venom website explains that the doctors researched the effects of the Temple Viper Snake’s venom which is known for stilling the movement of muscles of it’s prey. They held years of clinical trials and experimented with synthetic ingredients that would safely mimic the effects of the venom in a cream. But don’t be alarmed! Although it sounds intriguing, there’s no actual snake venom in this product.

They are also very transparent about what’s in their products. I’m not a scientist so I’m not even going to attempt to breakdown all of the ingredients but I do appreciate their transparency. I have yet to see another skincare line that lists each ingredient in their product.

Okay so there’s a ton of research, snake venom, and beautiful/honest packaging…but does it work? I tried the Day Cream and the Night Cream for several weeks and noticed a difference almost immediately. My skin is softer, and those annoying fine lines that seemed to jump off my face, aren’t as annoying as before. They are fading.

Here are some benefits of Simply Venom:

  • Enhances the characteristics of youthfully-acting skin
  • Improves and preserves skin texture while smoothing the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Contains anti-oxidants and probiotics to soothe inflammation
  • Enhances topical delivery of peptides and ingredients into the different
    layers of the skin
  • Increases moisture retention, decreases skin roughness and improves skin elasticity

And while not as taut as when I was 20 (without Botox who is?), I do see more firmness in my skin.  Let’s be real, nothing can make you look 20 again. But using Simply Venom can certainly help you reach your realistic #AgeGoals.
