When I first saw this product it was either on Facebook or Instagram and I have to say the first thing that came to my head was, ‘Oh lawd, just another get wrinkle-free quick’ type product. And I mean, I’ve seen it a whole lot in my ads because if it’s not clothing shopping, we’re skincare shopping, so my re-marketing goes haywire when it comes to skincare products. So anyways, I didn’t give it much thought. UNTIL, I saw a video in my Facebook feed. It wasn’t until then that I realized, this company is legit & their products have a cult following. YASSSS!
So what did I do? I went ahead and made a purchase, but not before researching the heck out of them and their products to see if this video is really all that it’s cracked up to me. Turns out it was and we made a bunch of notes in our research to share with our favorite Cheeky’s!
My order should be arriving any day and I’ll be sure to update you on our improvements!
Oh and PLEASE don’t forget to visit their Before & After’s page… it’s truly one of the most thorough and detailed ones I’ve seen.
Who is SiO Beauty
Founder Gigi Howard started getting chest wrinkles in her late 20’s. Being that Gigi was an avid napper & side sleeper, she started wearing summer scarves & turtlenecks to hide the maturing of her neck area. After trying every possible solution that her docs recommended, she set out to create her own product. ‘The turning point came when a doctor friend introduced her to the benefits of medical grade silicone, which has been proven to heal scars. Gigi knew she had found the “magic” ingredient! But it took over 180 prototypes, 2 clinical trials and 4 years of development to get the SiO patch just right.’ – provided by SiO.
How it Works – The Science
‘SiO’s specially formulated patches have been made to maximize comfort and accessibility so that medical grade silicone can be used in a new way – to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without the need for medical procedures like fillers, chemical peels or laser resurfacing.
When SiO’s patches are placed on the skin, they create a micro-climate between the skin and the silicone. This closed, breathable environment is called an occlusion by doctors and scientists.
Occlusion allows for two important things to happen. First, moisture is drawn up from lower skin layers to the outside layers (the dermis), causing the dermis to plump, fill in and smooth itself. Second, the production of collagen is encouraged. Increased collagen boosts skin firmness and elasticity, filling in wrinkles and plumping you from brow to bust.
SiO wasn’t developed without proof – we have tested our product on over 200 women under the supervision of a dermatologist. Our clinical trials not only measured what women thought about the results, but what their skin actually showed in terms of hydration, reduced roughness, wrinkle depth, and photodamage repair.’ – provided by SiO.
Silicone has been used & trusted by doctors, surgeons and hospitals for over 30 years as an exceptionally safe and effective means to heal and normalize scarred and burned skin.
- Smoother skin
- More hydrated looking skin
- ‘Better’ looking skin than the results from fillers and injectibles
- Immediate results & more permanent results overtime
Ingredients (Or Ingredient!)
100% Medical Grade Silicone
‘When medical grade silicone is placed on the skin, it creates a micro-climate between the skin and the silicone. This unique environment helps the skin heal itself as two things happen. First, moisture is drawn up from skin’s lower layers to the outside layers, allowing the skin to plump, fill in and smooth itself. Second, the production of collagen, the protein that holds the skin together, is activated and normalized. The result is the diminished appearance of wrinkles.’
- 9/10 women said skin was significantly smoother in the morning
- 85% of women said they would use SiO over injectibles & fillers
- 88% of women felt that their overall appearance improved
- 98% of women said that SiO was comfortable to sleep in
- 85% of women said that their forehead lines and crow’s feet were softened and less noticeable than the day prior
#DYK Did you know!? After the age of 20, you produce 1% less collagen each year.
How to Use
Step 1: Thoroughly cleanse and dry your skin before applying each power patch for lasting & best results.
Step 2: Gentle remove the plastic film and position the self-adhering patches to said areas
Step 3: Wear patches for 6 to 8 hours while you sleep. Or you can even consider wearing them for a few hours for a quick boost – think date night!
Step 4: REUSE ‘EM! After use, place patches on the enclosed storage shield. Rinse ’em with water and a clear cleanser like Ceptahil or Glytone as desired. Something non astringent or abrasive. Think basic!
#CheekyConfidential I read that most folks patches last for 15 days. Most folks had better luck with duration when ordering their second batch. They found it was a little tough to get the hang of keeping them dry and clear with the first set.
My SiO Pick
What’s Included — $80 value:
4 Smoothing Patches
- 1 BrowLift Patch
- 2 Eye & Smile Patches*
- 1 NeckLift Patch
My plan is to use these up to 3 times a week. I’d still like to maintain my normal retinoid schedule & general nighttime skincare routine (which you can’t really do when you use these guys), so I’ll definitely keep you in the loop on my successes.
