MY MAGIC SKIN CREAM | 1010 Park Place
— Style —


pin it

A month ago a friend sent me a day cream and a night cream, I’d never heard of, and asked if I would try them and give her my honest opinion. Because she built one of the most iconic beauty and fragrance brands in the world, she peaked my interest.

After two weeks, I started calling these bottles of Simply Venom™ my “magic creams.”

Simply Venom™ Day Cream and Night Cream contain ingredients that deliver similar effects to medical-grade “injectables,” but without the risk. You may have read my post about Botox and fillers and why I’m not doing them—as tempting as they are sometimes—so if Simply Venom™ creams could mimic their effects, I wanted to see how they worked. I also trusted my friend.

Simply Venom™ was developed by Dr. Monica Lilore and Dr. Milija Milic, both anesthesiologists with over 35 years of combined medical expertise. Both are highly skilled in the use of muscle relaxants. The inception of Simply Venom™ began with Doctors Lilore’s and Milic’s fascination with the Temple Viper Snake, and it’s powerful venom, which is legendary for stilling the movement of muscles.

After experimenting with synthetic ingredients that could safely and topically mimic the snake’s venom, Dr. Lilore and Dr. Milic began working with a homeopathic compounding pharmacist. The results are Simply Venom™ Day Cream and Night Cream. The ingredients have been clinically studied and deliver similar effects to that of medical-grade injectables, without the risk. This is exciting: Simply Venom’s™ Night Cream was voted a 2017 finalist for “Best Indie Beauty Brand” by the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW)!

Simply Venom™ Day Cream and Night Cream

Within a few days of using the Day Cream and Night Cream, my jowls–and particularly my neck–looked tighter! With so many creams on the market, I didn’t know what to expect from Simply Venom,™ so I didn’t think to do a “before” photograph. I wish I had. Just know that yesterday I told someone, “You’ll have to pry the Simply Venom™ creams away from me with a crowbar. Good luck!”

I’m using this stuff for life, because I no longer look like I’m related to the crypt keeper.

Go to their site. Read everything yourself. They list all of their ingredients, which are 100% fragrance, dye, gluten and paraben free.

It takes a lot of guts to get your face cut on. What if you don’t like the results? It also takes guts in this day and age to do nothing. Just try Simply Venom.™ What do you have to lose except for your turkey neck… which makes me think about the fabulous Nora Ephron’s book, I Feel Bad About My Neck. She would have loved this stuff!

Love, Brenda

    So…I’m pretty loyal to my Strivectin, but I’m intrigued. Since I’m about due for a new tube maybe I’ll give this a shot.

      Hi Debbie, I’ve never used Strivectin and quite frankly, am naive about most skin creams other than what I buy in Whole Foods. Simply Venom has made an amazing difference, most of all in my neck, which was wobbly-gobbly. Let me know what you think. Thanks, Brenda

    So you’ve used them for a month? I am intrigued! I appreciate a great personal recommendation, so am considering this! Thanks!!

      Hi Beckye, You’ve been a 1010ParkPlace reader long enough to know I recommend very few products, and the ones I do, I have to really believe in them. Think about it… It’s two bottles of cream! In the grand scheme of things, if you don’t like it, it’s no big deal. I will keep buying Simply Venom. I’m amazed at how much better my neck looks. xoxox, Brenda

    I long to laugh at myself how quickly I jumped on this post and how much I think: I might could want to try that. Like yesterday 🙂 🙂 but I don’t laugh at me. I’m curious!!!

    • Reply 1010ParkPlace June 19, 2017 at 2:57 pm

      Hello! No laughter here at speed or curiosity! I’m of that age where other than Botox, fillers and surgery, I’m interested in anything that gets rid of even a smudge of turkey neck! Everyday I look more and more like my mother… when she was OLD. I mean OLD, OLD, as in her 80’s! Yes, I’m grateful to still be here and be healthy, but this facial aging and drooping business is cruel. Keep me posted, Brenda

    Brenda you have certainly set me to curious! The name sort of threw meat first but I like it because it is clear of it’s origin.

    • Reply 1010ParkPlace June 19, 2017 at 3:03 pm

      I know what you mean about the name, Haralee. It’s kind of odd, plus I’m a Texas girl, and it’s been ingrained in me all my life to steer clear of snakes… poisonous or nonpoisonous. I can assure you, these creams are harmless–not like a venomous snake–but affective. Please let me know if you decide to try them and what you think. xoxox, Brenda

    I love the packaging. It sounds intriguing. I’ll have to try it.

    • Reply 1010ParkPlace June 19, 2017 at 3:04 pm

      I like the packaging as well. It’s unforgettable that’s for sure. xoxoxo Brenda

    This sounds intriguing, and the price point isn’t outrageous. I did visit their site and wish they had more before-and-after photos to document how the products work. But you’re a credible advocate, so I may just have to give this a try!

    • Reply 1010ParkPlace June 20, 2017 at 3:54 pm

      If you think about it, Roxanne, most skincare products don’t have “before and after” photos. When they do, the photographer in me is looking for signs they photoshopped it. I don’t know what your skin texture, sagging, etc. is, so I can’t tell you how this will work for you. I can only tell you it works for me! Let me know what you think of it. Thanks, Brenda

  • Reply Valorie June 20, 2017 at 11:21 am

    I may try this! I just read the ingredient list and it looks good. I’m starting to need something for my neck other than Olay Regenerist. I love peptides in just about any skin product!

    • Reply 1010ParkPlace June 20, 2017 at 3:58 pm

      You’re ahead of me about the peptides, Valorie! Until now, I’ve been using a day cream and a night cream from Whole Foods that don’t have parabens in them and are relatively “clean.” There’s a whole world of creams–and just about everything else–I know nothing about. Thanks so much for reading and commenting. I’d be interested to know what you think of it. Brenda

    Heads up, Brenda! This product duo is sold on HSN for $36.75 + free shipping! I went to the Simply Venom website and it has the HSN icon, so I clicked. Sure enough, same size containers. Score!

    • Reply Brenda Coffee June 22, 2017 at 8:36 pm

      Woah! Thanks for the info. Wish I’d had this a couple of hours earlier because I placed an order on their site and didn’t notice that. Next time! Brenda

    I’ve been nervous to try anything new but gluten, dye free and recommended by you is what I need!

    • Reply 1010ParkPlace June 25, 2017 at 8:57 pm

      I can’t say whether this will work for anyone else. All I know is that it works for me! xoxox, Brenda
