I have to admit that I'm not really the adventurous type when it comes to most things but I am open to trying new skincare products with interesting ingredients as long as they're innovative and effective. My current skincare routine includes products with snail mucin, 24K gold, royal jelly and bee propolis. At the same time I would probably draw the line at certain things like bugs or snakes since they gross me out. Despite it's name, this Innarah Veno Defense Hydrating Treatment Créme does not contain any snake venom but a natural VenoDefense Complex that mimics viper venom to effectively relaxing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It actually does much more than that so read on for my full review.
About the Brand: Backed by decades of research, by one of the beauty industry’s leading chemists, Innarah has created the first ever skin care line that works in cooperation with your skin’s biology. Their range is made using a revolutionary fermentation process that combines blends of unique natural botanical oils and minerals. This process creates highly effective products that maintain the potency of the ingredients so they can be easily absorbed while encouraging the skin’s own reparative abilities and optimizing vital defense from the inside out. Each Innarah product is purposely formulated to address specific skin issues due to natural aging and environmental factors, offering benefits to nourish, purify and re-energize skin.

Since I've incorporated this Innarah Veno Defense Hydrating Treatment Créme into my skincare routine, I've definitely seen an improvement to the overall condition and appearance of my skin. My face is looking noticeably softer, smoother and more radiant. Like good enough that my husband took notice and I actually went out grocery shopping the other day with nothing more than a swipe of mascara, blush and tinted lip balm on. I almost wish that I didn't like this cream so much because of the steep price tag but at least a little goes a long way and it works and feels every bit as luxurious you'd expect it to feel. I didn't experience results anywhere close to this when I tried the famous Créme de la Mer. My skin tends to agree with fermented ingredients and I really like how this line combines science with natural ingredients and contains nothing harmful. I may just have to set aside a fund for a future purchase because results matter when it comes to skincare. I've said it before but I'd rather spend more on something that works then waste money on a bunch of products that don't. And better skin equals less makeup. I don't really spend much money on makeup these days anyway.
Innarah Veno Defense Hydrating Treatment Créme is available for sale through the Innarah website where you can also learn more about the brand and their full range of products.
