Ok, so products like this make my blood boil. Studio 10 Miracle Effect Priming Serum landed on my desk this morning with some rather impressive claims and talks of clinical trials. Within 15 minutes 100% of users saw significant visible results. The benefits include visibily reducing fine lines and wrinkles, diminishing pores, age spots and pigmentation appear less visible, improves puffiness and dark circles, boosts hydration and provides the perfect canvas for make up.
Studio 10 Miracle Effect Priming Serum is on an M&S exclusive, and after trialling it, I was just, “what are they thinking?” The texture of the serum is like a sticky wall paper paste – smoother, obviously, but it feels gloopy on the skin. I gave it fifteen minutes, and pretty much nothing happened, other than when I tried to pop my foundation over the top it started to peel away in those horrible little squirls that you get when formulas are incompatible.
I’ve shown on my hand (that has no moisturiser or any incompatible product on it) what happens . … we all know those ‘squirls’, right? I then took everything off my face, and started again on completely bare skin – the same thing happened when I rubbed my face.
The upshot of this is that you can’t use it with anything else, it’s so far from a perfect canvas for make up it’s unreal and the suggestion of ‘visible’ results and ‘dramatic’ improvements is quite laughable.
The ‘clinically proven’ claim is questionable.. there’s no suggestion of number of participants and while used alone and never touched, there might be some kind of tightening action, I can’t see how the claim of age spots and pigmentation appearing less visible could stand up – it’s a completely clear product.
And, it’s £68. Buy shoes instead.
