Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum

Glamoxy Snake Serum - Glossy Box Sample

This is another Glossy Box sample review, I'm afraid, but maybe not as good a one as I hoped. When this little sachet appeared in my Glossy Box I was instantly drawn to it, mainly because I had absolutely no idea what it was. For starters 'Snake Serum' sounds kind of bizarre and a little scary to me, so my instant reaction was "I really want to try that!" Well really my first reaction was to research, research, research... and I was actually quite surprised with what I found.

For starters, a full-sized 25ml bottle is £127! No seriously, that's the price tag on this baby. Glamoxy Snake Serum is said to reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles, while improving the overall condition of your skin. This effect is supposed to be noticeable instantly, and it is supposed to bring a 3D plumping effect to skin. Now for the interesting part... the serum is said to freeze the muscle and mimic the effect of a viper's venom... I actually kid you not! It's even inherited the tag line of 'Botox in a bottle', it is absolutely crazy what they can do for beauty now. Obviously the serum is completely safe to use and was completely sold out in the UK when it hit the shops.

Now onto the actual product itself. Glossy Box spared me two little sachets of the serum to try, and try I did. I've used it morning and night for a week now, and I can honestly say that my skin is absolutely no different. In fact I think it may be worse as I seem to have had a huge breakout, but I'm not entirely sure what has caused this, so no blaming just yet. One sachet has lasted me a week but I have had to use it very sparingly. As for the instant effect, I really didn't notice any. I know obviously I don't have lots of wrinkles and I hope I don't need botox, but I didn't even feel like my skin was plump or smooth at all.

I'm quite gutted about this product as from all the research I did, I was actually so excited about trying it. I actually think that the serum wasn't probably aimed at me as a target audience, so maybe other people have had different experiences with it?

Have you tried Glamoxy Snake Serum? What are your thoughts?


  1. I can't believe how expensive this is! :o xo

  2. I know, its actually unreal. I even researched the price of it because I couldn't believe it!

  3. -Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever.

  4. Wow! That is expensive! I went to a spa recently and they had some products that are apparently used by cheryl cole. I cant recall the name but they had crushed diamonds in and each tiny jar cost over £400. :-S. Mad.

    1. I know, I couldn't believe it! I have another sachet of it left so I might give it another go. Hopefully I won't be as disappointed!
