Gwyneth Buys a Little Snake Oil

Is Gwyneth Paltrow a ssssecret ssssupporter of Slytherin? Page Six reports that she recently made an interesting purchase at the Sonya Dakar clinic: a $185 bottle of Ultraluxe anti-aging lotion. Ultraluxe contains Syn-ake, a synthetic version of the Temple Viper's venom. The actual venom paralyzes people (sounds like fun!), so Syn-ake uses its main peptide to produce a topical Botox-like effect.

Sounds like it would make sense, but there's something about this stuff that creeps me out a little. Maybe it's my crippling fear of snakes, or maybe it's my paradoxical concern for the well-being of the wee Temple Viper. Or perhaps it's just my crippling fear of the $185 price tag. Who knows? Would you try this "snake oil" treatment?

In China, they drink Snake wine (there's literally a dead snake coiled in the bottle), so I imagine there's something about Snake oil that has been passed down through the ages that has some merit. I would try it once (provided I could afford it)

Umm, now if she'd just cut her hair. That'll help take the years off.

Gwyneth Paltrow is boring and pretentious. Also, about this circumcised-skin moisturizer, is there a link to it? I mean, I'm Yahoooing it and nothing comes up.

The product is synthetic snake venom, not actual snake venom. I'd try it if it wasn't so expensive.

No it's worse it's a moisturiser MADE FROM circumcised foreskin. Thats WAY worse. Anyway this doesn't scare me but no cream works like botox. Botox is the only effective way to get rid of wrinkles. AAND Gwenyth looks gross in that picture, especially her skin.

Well, this skeeves me out *slightly* less than Tommy Hilfiger and his circumsized foresking moisturizer. But, only slightly less. :O

Does she actually eat raw? I knew she was on macrobiotic for awhile but that incorporates cooked food. Anyway, there's no damn way I'd put this stuff near my face. And the $185 price tag isn't helping matters any either. How old is Gwyneth anyway?

I'm not on board with the snake venom treatment. Seems a little weird. BTW...She looks terrible in this photo.

it might work but for how long, as long as you don't wash your face? That's pretty expensive stuff unless it offers positive effects long term. I've never tried it but I would think botox would be a better deal. At least you get immediate results and they lasts for a while!

I have to know the side effects first before I try it

I just think it's funny she only eats raw food, but she'll use snake venom. Doesn't that seem wrong?

Hmm...paralysis is probably never good even if it temporarily makes wrinkles go away.

snake venom kills yáll. Why i would want to have it in my moisturiser? Are you kidding me, my cousin lost a leg after a puff adder bit him and i have this deep all abiding fear of snakes. CRAZY!!!

I would have to hear the effects and side effects of it before trying it. It does sound a little scary, but after its been tested and used for a while and proven to be safe and have dramatic effects, I might try it someday to keep the wrinkles away!
