Syn-Ake is an anti-wrinkle chemical based on a synthetic protein fragment that replicates part of the venom of the Malaysian Temple Viper. This compound works in a manner similar to Botox to relax tight skin muscles that create wrinkles. Now, with that said, I don’t think anything applied topically can work the way that injected Botox and fillers work. But what the hell. I bought this on a whim during my September haul in Canada:
After applying a Lululun mask (special green grapefruit edition,) I slathered this Lovemore Syn-ake all over my face. YES it feels firming, if only temporarily. It smells a bit musky, almost like a soft English leather mixed with a tea rose scent. It’s a very different but rather pleasant scent for a face product. The texture is of a light, bouncy cream, almost like a moisturizing gel but a bit heavier.
It goes on very smooth and softens the skin right away. I already threw out the box and can’t even find anything about this product on Google. Of the few times I used it, my skin felt extremely hydrated and silky soft and firm. Don’t see/have many wrinkles so I can’t tell if it actually smoothes or not. Of course this might end up being a miracle item. Fml
Pros: cheap at $20, pleasant scent, effective at hydrating and softening (anti-wrinkle property is debatable,) lots of product for the money.
Cons: ULTRA hard to find even among my selection of random products, cheap label sticker keeps on peeling off, not really anti-wrinkling.
