Wrinkles are a big incentive to use skin care products, both preventative and healing. If you’re concerned about the ingredients in your skin care, consider using silicone pads instead! We love to support the Australian owned brand Wrinkles Schminkles and their silicone pads are even reusable. We’ve given them a go in the clinic, to see how they rack up with our different skin needs. Check out how it went! (Note: Images are supplied by Wrinkles Schminkles and are not images of us)

Wrinkles Schminkles Eye Smoothing Kit
“I was so excited to road test this, because even though it’s right in front of me everyday on our shelves, it has never been something that I have brought home.
My areas of concern are my under eyes because I am nearly 42 and there are lines under there, and I don’t really like them.
The first thing I did was research the product and found that there are so many amazing benefits for medical grade silicone including minimising scarring and now for minimising wrinkles.
minimise scarring and wrinkles
My first attempt at using them wasn’t great, because they kept slipping off. What I realised was that I should not have applied all my serums and eye cream, and just kept that area clear from excess moisture. So once I re-cleansed the area, I applied them under my eyes and went to bed. They stayed on all night, and I had to peel them off in the morning, but with no discomfort at all.
The results were pretty incredible. The fine lines directly under my eyes were almost gone, and my crows feet were softer. Not gone, but definitely softer. I also got the cleaning lotion, so I washed them after use ready for tonight! These would be great to use before an event or when you are looking tired and puffy. I am going to buy my mum some for her birthday, but I think I’ll get her the chest pads as that is her areas of concern. I’m also going to try out the forehead smoothing kit and hopefully get a great result. A huge thumbs up from me!”
Wrinkles Schminkles Neck, Chest & Forehead Smoothing Kit
“I spent some time deciding which product to try this time. With young kids keeping me up at night, I often wake up feeling more tired that when I went to bed. The wrinkles and baggy eyes are definitely a common view in the mirror. While I’ve noticed my forehead wrinkles deepening, it’s my neck
and chest that is really standing out.
All the past sun damage is finally catching me up and I’m definitely not happy about it. While I’d love to try the chest kit, my daughter is still breastfeeding overnight. I figure she’ll just pull it off and play with it. Instead I’ve chosen the neck smoothing kit. I’m seeing deep horizontal creases that aren’t disappearing when I move.
Apply to clean skin without serums or moisturiser
The silicone pad feels soft and sticky. I made sure I had clean skin and didn’t put any serums or moisturiser on my neck before bed. The pad stuck easily to my neck but I had an unforeseen problem. Having the pad stretch across my neck felt a bit like being choked/restricted. It wasn’t a nice feeling. Eventually, when I still couldn’t relax, I moved it down lower onto my chest and proceeded to fall asleep.
As predicted, my daughter played with it and pulled it off while she fed overnight. Arg. It actually went on again easily though. When I woke I found the pad near my pillow, it’d fallen off. I washed it off ready to try again the next night. After washing the pad still felt sticky.
This time I trimmed it to fit on my forehead. I definitely noticed a difference when I woke, but it was after a few days that my forehead really felt smoother. It’s made me also consider what is causing the forehead wrinkles… being tired and grumpy – sure – but also squinting. I’m going to check my eyes out and make sure I have better sunglasses.
I’ll be super keen to try a chest pad again when my daughter is weaned! This is a product with direct results.”
