Seriously Strange Beauty: Snake Venom And Snail "Dribble"?

Okay, this one’s not the newest trick in the book.  Word on the street is that Gwyneth was shelling out $185 for an ounce of snake venom cream a while back.  We’re intrigued nonetheless.


Snake venom will, allegedly, do wonders to prevent and cure wrinkles.  It also has the cache of being strange and difficult to come by, but not as hard to get a hold of as, we learned, snail dribble cream.  Yeah, you heard that right.


Elicina Skin Renewal Cream ($24) is one of the more popular (we use the word with reservations) snail secretion creams out there.  The snails used are Chilean – the product was created after Chilean snail farmers found their skin got very smooth from handling snails bred for export to France (as food.)


However, if you’re scared of snakes in any form, or would simply prefer your snails in the form of escargot with a little butter and garlic, check out Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 ($18.50).  Retinol does wonders to correct lines and signs of aging, and the high SPF will help prevent further damage.
