I am so happy to be doing my second review from the land downunder where we have most of the world’s 10 most venous snakes. So it certainly seems fitting that I be reviewing a new cream by Aussie company Eclogite called Viper Milk; is it as deadly? Let’s see..
I found my new Viper Milk packaged 50ml shiny gold airless pump which seemed very luxurious indeed, and as this cream retails at $200 AUS it really is a luxury! The only thing to be prepared for is that the cream is dispensed not only as you press the pump down but also on the way up which can lead to a lot of wasted product which in my case happened quite frequently.
Eclogite have made some very impressive claims about Viper Milk on their website
. Here’s a sample so that you can see why I was so interested in this product:
“How To Have 50% fewer wrinkles in just under 10 minutes…We have discovered four active ingredients which dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles… Two of these ingredients are exclusive to us, nobody else in Australia has them.”
At first glance at the ingredient list of Viper Milk, I was worried about the two silicone type things being high on the list. So I emailed Marta and learned that these are fillers that aren’t exactly great, but will make you skin soft. The inclusion of sodium benzoate is the only concern. Viper Milk has some impressive muscle relaxer type ingredients, such as GABA
, that need to be in a highish concentration for them to do much. It also has other ingredients that support collagen which all sounded pretty good to me.
The cream itself goes on a little slippery, so a little goes a long way and a minute after putting it on I felt tingles of activity and a little pink flush which subsided quickly. Then I waited the 10 minutes hoping that the next time I looked in the mirror I would see my 21 year old complexion instead of my 31 years. I then took my first peek to find that ... alas no ... but WOW! I did look fresher! Really! I could not believe it so I was equally surprised when it had the same effect on day two.
After my month long trial I would have to say that Viper Milk didn’t make me look 10 years younger but it did make me look younger. My skin looked better and my pores seemed less noticeable and my skin felt soft and smooth. I didn’t notice any spike in my rate of breakout using Viper Milk which I was kind of surprised about for a product that feels so active. I’m unsure as to how much the muscle relaxers worked and what long term effect these could have on the formation of expression lines but there is potential. I really enjoyed putting this cream into my routine and would like to keep up the pricey Viper Milk habit; still I guess it’s cheaper than Botox. I recommend giving Viper Milk a try and would love to hear if other people get the “wow effect” that I have experienced because I think this product would be worth some more testing.
My next Trial for the TIA community is Unscented 24 Hour Moisture Cream from another Aussie Band Called A’kin. Although this next cream is not really an anti ageing product I am looking forward to giving it a try.
