SKYCIG Review- The closest thing to a real cigarette

I know...I know that this is a blog for reviewing beauty products, but I just had to put this on here, because
a lot of people are struggling to quit smoking and this is worth a try...

I recently received a promotional email from SKYCIG offering me a massive 90% off, to buy their starter kit!! I don’t smoke myself, but I know a man who does (the other half) and this was just perfect!

My husband has tried both the gum and the lozenges in the past, but had to stop using them as they gave him heartburn.  He did manage some success with the cold turkey method and stopped for a few months, but due to a stressful event (buying our first house) started smoking again and since hasn’t managed to stop. 

Before buying the kit, I went on their website and saw that it was full of positive reviews, but that was still not enough to convince me to part with my cash (after all they probably wouldn’t put up the bad reviews!).  I then saw that they offer a 30 day money back guarantee if the product is not for you, so I then went ahead and placed the order.

What exactly is SKYCIG?

A SKYCIG e-cigarette is a device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking by producing an inhaled vapour which bears the same physical sensation, appearance and flavour of inhaled tobacco smoke, but without the strong odour or harmful chemicals (SKYCIG cartridges contain a dose of nicotine, water and edible flavourings). SKYCIG is comparable to traditional cigarettes in terms of size and feel, with each piece being put through extensive testing to ensure quality prior to customer use. (Taken from the Sky Cig website)

How long does the SKYCIG Cartridge last?

Each SKYCIG cartridge is equivalent to more than 30 traditional cigarettes (results vary depending on smoking frequency), releasing enough nicotine and original flavours for over 250 puffs. (Taken from the SKYCIG  website)

So what did tester, Vinnie make of the SKYCIG Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit?

The kit arrived fairly quickly (in about three days).  I was really impressed with the presentation and quality of the kit, first impression was very good!! I was ready to use the kit the next day. 

I have smoked roll ups for years despite wanting to give up, any smoker will tell you giving up smoking is one of the hardest things to do.  The E Cig was easy to assemble and once I took my first puff that was it! I haven’t had a roll up since or felt like having a smoke. 

This is an AMAZING product!!! I just wish that I had tried this sooner! What I like best about it, is that it actually feels like you are smoking without putting all of the other chemical nasties into your body.  It looks like a cigarette and you “smoke it” like a cigarette but the “smoke” that it produces is actually harmless vapour, so that means that I can smoke in the house and in public places. 

I have told all of my family and friends about it, and also got two of my friends to get a starter kit.  I will continue to use SKYCIG and gradually cut down and then finally stop, that is what I hope to do by the end of the year. 

Positives: Feels just like a cigarette, excellent design, looks just like the real things! The choice of refills, I tried all varieties and I liked tobacco, cherry and vanilla the best.

Negatives: They don’t have a Tel no. so can only contact by email, but emails are usually answered quite quick.  Had a faulty battery (which was just bad luck) and had to use just one battery for a week, while I waited for the other one to be replaced. 

***The review was written a week after Vinnie had been using the kit.  Will keep you posted on how he gets on!****

Update:  17th May 2012

***Since this article was posted, Vinnie is still not smoking and is very happy with SKYCIG.  He just wishes that he had switched to E Cigs earlier!***

Final Update:  2nd July 2012

Vinnie has now stopped using SKYCIG and now doesn't smoke or E Cig anymore!!! While he was away on hols, for a whole week he didnt use his SKYCIG  and now has stopped all together and is feeling healthy and better than ever!!! Well done!

You can get a SKYCIG  Start kit for £9.99 (Usual price £19.99)

  6. Ordered last night great discount

  8. i would love to let you know but the problem is i cant get one unless i pay the full price

    this is a complete misleading con and should be banned from advertising in papers

  9. Hi, I just checked the offer is def still running! What you u need to do is, add the kit to the cart, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page and type 'SUN' in the coupon box and then submit the code and then it applies the discount for you. It should then be priced at £11.99 and with P&P it comes to about £15.97!!

    Please try this code and let me know how you get on!!! Loads of people have been getting it at this price and I agree that paying full price for it is a lot of money!!!


  11. Code worked fine for me, cheers for that!

  12. just order my sky cig discount code still working cant wait to try it out just emailed me saying its been dispatched and given me tracking code xx

  13. No longer working

  14. The sky cig in general is pretty good. But do stay away from the nrg nicotine free ones. I liked the idea of going down to zero nicotine but they have zero throat hit and very little taste, don't waste your money

  15. I have been using Ciggys, their filters fit Skycig and they have FREE delivery on all products. I cant believe Skycig have the cheek to charge £4.00 per pack of filters, which makes it £15 a pop :(

    Ciggys have great customer service and their flavours are gorgeous and I save money on postage! No spam just my thoughts :)
