Silicone Heart Retainer by Kaos Softwear

Product Information

The heart retainer is the latest innovation from Kaos Softwear in body piercing retainers. These are especially useful for, but not limited to nostril, monroe and cartilage piercings. The flesh tone colors run from lightest (v1.0) to darkest (v5.0). By pinching both sides of the 'heart' together it collapses, creating an extended reach for an easier insertion. Once the retainer is inserted the 'heart' will open to create a flare, holding the jewelry in place. Kaos made a great little video to demonstrate insertion and removal.

Perfect - Barely Noticeable

This is amazing! Comfortable, discreet, and fits perfectly. Was asked to remove my jewelry for work and needed a new retainer to hide my nose piercing. Used bioplast in the past, but it was never hidden enough and could be uncomfortable at times. Saw this as a suggested product and am so glad I bought it.

So grateful for this

I have tried SO many different 18g nostril piercing retainers/hiders. None of them compare to this silicone heart retainer! The others that Ive tried are either super visible on my light skin, or shine in the direct light. I'm also very sensitive to plastics. I am starting a job where any visible retainer will not be tolerated. I got the 1.5 version (second lightest) and while it's still a shade lighter than my skin color, it simply looks like a barely raised mole or bump. In the photo it is directly underneath an actual raised bump and it looks the same.
Not noticeable and wont glimmer in the light. Plus its super comfortable, and I have no reaction to the medical grade silicone.
Getting it in was only slightly difficult due to how flexible the tip is. Its easier if you have just removed a nose stud and then immediately insert. And as soon as the tip can be felt in the inside just grasp it with tweezers and pull it right through! I came back on here just to leave a review and order two more to keep on hand when this one wears out! I will order another 1.5 and maybe a clear one. Fast shipping was much appreciated!

Absolutely Amazon

This earring is an absolute lifesaver for concealing my helix piercing at work. I really appreciate the fact that they make these in different flesh tones because traditional retainer earrings are very obvious on brown skin, so I was forced to color it with brown marker which was an absolute pain. This earring is light, comfortable, affordable, and discrete. No complaints whatsoever! Amazing amazing amazing product.

too flexible to fit in hole

Extremely difficult

This is extremely difficult to put in and take out. The color is spot on and is comfortable, but is so hard to get in and out!
