A relatively new skincare company, SiO Beauty, reached out to me to ask if I wanted to try their product lineup. As I love new skincare innovations, I happily agreed–and this one sounded truly unique. The package that SiO sent included all of the products in their three-step system: Decollete Cleansing Discs ($45); a package of 2 SiO Skinpads ($99.95 for 2 pads, each reusable up to 15 times); and the Decollete Serum ($135). All prices listed indicate single purchase prices; prices vary if you enroll in their subscription purchasing program.
I turned to SiO to explain exactly how the Skinpad works:
“The SiO SkinPad is made from silicon and oxygen. Silicone in its most basic form is composed one one atom of oxygen and two atoms of silicon. These form polymers, which are then linked together to maximize the permeability of the material. By creating the ideal material oxygen is allowed to pass through, while moisture is locked in, creating the ultimate wrinkle-smoothing climate.”
So as you wear the pad, it helps draw moisture into the skin it’s covering to hydrate and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The adhesive nature of the pad also helps gently pull skin taut, temporarily reducing the appearance of fine lines.
I tried the whole system for a few nights so I could give you my honest feedback on it.
First off, I would skip the decolette cleansing discs. They are thin, pre-moistened pads that cleanse, lightly exfoliate, and prep the skin for pad application. They’re supposed to enhance the effects of the Skinpad, but I noticed no difference when I did and didn’t use them. The price seems on the high side to me ($45 for 30 pads).
The pad itself is pretty great. I am so finicky about the feeling of certain things on my skin, and for the most part, the pad felt comfortable (and not noticeable) on my skin. I have a larger chest, and I think this would be easier for smaller-chested women to wear. I don’t have many wrinkles on my chest, so it was initially hard for me to gauge whether or not the product worked, but as I became more familiar with it, it seemed to reduce the appearance of fine lines. If you are unhappy with fine lines/wrinkles/creases on your decollette, this product could be a great solution for you. I love that the pads can be reused up to 15 times; they really do retain their sticky power for 15 days!
More details on this skincare system after the jump.
The serum is really nice. You’re supposed to use it in the morning after removing the pad to help hydrate the skin. It’s really silky, minimally fragranced, and was very hydrating. I actually loved this, and felt like it worked well on my skin, especially after wearing the skinpad all night. It didn’t feel greasy at all and absorbed quickly, leaving behind no residue whatsoever. I liked this so much, I even used it on my dry hands as the weather turned cooler.
My final thoughts: is this a set of products every woman absolutely needs? No. But if you’re concerned or self-conscious about the appearance of the skin on your chest area, this kit could be a good investment. I would definitely recommend this for sidesleepers to minimize the appearance of fine lines and creases on the decolette. I’m all for anything that makes women feel better about themselves, so if your chest area is an issue for you, I’d say give it a whirl.
