Product review: Nanoblur Advanced Optical Skin Corrector  Add to ...

The promise

Hell hath no fury like a Hollywood actress in HD. It was the entertainment industry's ever-tightening embrace of the technology that prompted Canadian skincare company Indeed Laboratories to develop Nanoblur - the groundbreaking corrective cream that vows to take 10 years off the skin in just 40 seconds by temporarily erasing the look of lines, wrinkles, crow's feet, sagging and enlarged pores.

How it works

Using an advanced form of optical-prism technology described as "a suspension of millions and millions of particles that refl­ect light in billions of directions," the cream blurs lines and imperfections, making skin appear flawless. The water-based formula also contains peptides - crucial ingredients in the battle against aging ­- and amino acids.

How to use it

Apply Nanoblur as the last step in your skincare regimen (after cleanser and moisturizer). If using liquid foundation, apply it on top. If using powder foundation, apply it beneath. For very dry skin types, the product can also be mixed with your regular moisturizer.

The bottom line

I have pretty young-looking skin for a woman in her thirties. But ever since a beauty consultant pointed out the lines on my forehead, they have become an area of obsession for me. That said, one application of Nanoblur took care of them. It also mattified my skin, reduced pores and evened out skin tone until I washed it off.

However, I have dry skin and made the mistake of applying the product over my moisturizer and ended up spending the evening contorting my face in weird ways because it felt really tight. Note to self: Follow the instructions.

$19 at Rexall and Pharma Plus stores across Canada and through www.indeedlabs.com.
