Glamotox: A Substitute for Botox?

Beauty Cred on 31 Dec 2007 at 12:04pm

I did have Botox once. But it didn't do anything for the places I wanted to fix, which are around my nose and lips. It's best for your forehead, and I had a browlift twenty years ago that seems to have taken care of that issue for me. Not to mention the fact that it's hard to inject botulinus toxin into yourself and feel natural or even safe.

So I'm interested whether anyone has tried Glamotox, a new alternative to Botox sold by Rodial, a UK company. Here's what the company says:

Want to look younger without the needles or the knives? Rodial proudly introduces glamotoxTM, a non-invasive alternative to surgery. Infused with an SPF 18 moisturizer and micro-injected hyaluronic acid, glamotoxTM combines daily hydration with wrinkle plumping agents.

• Daily moisturizer with SPF 18 sun protection
• Instant wrinkle filler
• Muscle freezer
• Eye cream

This is what I know about Hyaluronic acid: it comes from horse pee. My friend Mary takes it internally because it helps her knee problems.  It apparently lubricates the joints. I can't take it because, like aspirin, it upsets my stomach. But it is apparently a joint and tissue hydrater, and it is a major ingredient in Restylane.

If you have indeed used Glamotox, will you tell me about your results?
