They say it’s all in the delivery—that’s definitely the case for Kate Somerville’s new patent-pending DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment, launching this March. The celeb aesthetician gave ELLE.com a preview of this unique plumping product, designed to mimic the results of her LA Skin Clinic’s Dermal Quench facial. Here’s what we found:
First, this isn’t shaped like any product we’ve ever seen; it looks almost like a machine. You’re meant to shake the bottle and from a half-inch or so away, spray this cool, fizzing serum-like product in lines across your cheeks and forehead from a long protruding spout. (If you’ve ever had an oxygen facial, the chilly burst-of-air sensation may feel familiar.)
We used it in the morning and night for a week and saw a noticeable plumping out of lines around the eyes, as well as increased glow.
Apparently, with this newfangled delivery system, the special Hydrafill combination of oxygen, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid (for hydration) and something called perfluorocarbons, or PFCs (that act like temporary fillers) seep deeper into the skin.
It may be the holiday eggnog speaking, but we’re still thanking Kate.
