Stemulation has a new daily moisturizer called Drench ($ 195), a heavyweight who promises to restore moisture lost retinol treatments, reduce immediately wrinkling and provide long lasting hydration. My personal experience was that the scores Drench largely on the immediate satisfaction, but less in the long-term performance.
The immediate effect is remarkable. After applying it to my neck, I was struck immediately on how my skin looked instantly felt more uniform and smooth as silk. Rubbing it on the backs of my hands instantly took five years. They looked fat and pampered. Unfortunately, this effect made more than a few hours passed and the dry skin of my neck and hands did not experience all day hydration. My face faired better in this regard, but in this case my skin is inherently in the oily side.
From the impressive list of ingredients, I can not see what gives this instant pumping effect. However, my opinion is that instant wrinkle reduction is due to an opacifying ingredient, sodium and potassium aluminum silicate and titanium dioxide, which can make the skin look whiter.
The main ingredient after oil water and grape seed is Pseudoalteromonas exopolysaccharides , a favorite of Stemulation that can be found in its excellent Hi-Impact serum ($ 185 in the store) and a moisture retention ingredient which is said to improve the production of collagen. moisture retention is also aided by a peptide, palmitoyl hexapeptide-12, and preliminary research indicates that stablilizes cells and helps collagen production.
Another important ingredient is beta glucan considered a priority. ß-glucans they are immune cells that ingest and demolishing invade pathogens , but also give a war cry to stimulate other immune cells to join the attack.
An interesting ingredient is the extract of the plant nutsedge. It is supposed to work in the papillary dermis, responsible for elasticity. This is just one of many botanical extracts, including goji berry, chokeberry, the Granada and blueberry. One of them, verbena, I think strong odor accounts (although there is a chemical fragrance as well) that to me is almost overwhelming, but others tried to find perfectly acceptable.
Although I do not like Drench (as Hi-Impact and Repeat – both firm favorites of mine stable Stemulation), I feel that my reaction is personal. I wonder if anyone has tried Drench and had a positive experience.
