Thanks to BritishBeautyBlogger, I saw her article about Deciem‘s up-and-coming Photography Fluid Opacity 12%.
It appears that the Company will also be selling an 8% version. Knowing the way most of our minds work, many consumers may jump at the 12%, thinking it is more concentrated…and will therefore deliver more results, and / or deliver results faster. I can’t say whether either is correct, only that it IS important we work up to higher percentages when using topicals – whether of an acid, like glycol, lactic, THC etc., a particularly drying cleanser ingredients, an incredibly concentrated cream, and so on. The skin does need time to adjust, and a new agent of any kind can lead to trouble – over drying, breakouts, rashes, burns! So whatever the case may be with this, worth checking the ingredients because of the “%” alone. That said, Deciem appears to be committed to quality skincare (recently spotted the hand cream at a USA CVS!)
From BritishBeautyBlogger, in her words (link as above, and THANK YOU to her for this great information!):
“…as a top line guide you’ll find Bio-Silica Photo Finishing Prisms Grades 3, 7 and 9 (ultra fine refractive particles). Then, Nano-Prismatic Blurring Suspension (enhances activation of copper peptides contained within the product). Nano-Prismatic Yellow-Red Hue Corrector that blanks out red tones and minimizes yellow tones. Nano-Prismatic Gold Technology (gives a golden hue to skin) and Dragon Fruit Chromatic Refractor (bio fruit complex to give immediate radiance).”
You can’t select the product to view on the site just yet, but the way I see it, this is a guaranteed sell-out product. I mean anything that claims to be, or suggests it *might* have the potential to be a topical “filter” of sorts is going to generate a great deal of curiosity. And store flooding!
These days, everything is documented online. And if it ISN’T, we are almost always at risk of being “snapped” by a friend’s…or a fly-by…mobile phone camera – there’s an underlying pressure for a lot of people to look good all the time, lest they get a copy of the photo and add a filter themselves. There are studies ongoing about the stress effects of social media…so let’s just say that a liquid corrector of any kind will get attention.
I am curious to see reviews, and thank BritishBeautyBlogger for sharing the news. It sounds like this possible gem will be in-store in June in the UK. eBay, anyone!?
