From Spaaaace…..CNET takes a look at sciencey and impressive sounding marketing for a pricey new beauty product.
Anti-aging! Space diamonds! Groundbreaking medical research! Wow, Celestial Black Diamond Night Cream sure sounds like a miracle. Let’s take a closer look.
The product description says the cream includes black diamond particles “believed to have formed in space.” Huh? Either they came from space, or they didn’t. Manufacturer 111 Skin doesn’t divulge the sourcing method for the particles, but it does describe them as “microspheres that penetrate the deeper dermal layer of the skin in order to transport three essential youth restoring ingredients: patent-pending NAC Y2 formula, Collagen type I and III and Hyaluronic acid.”
As the author concludes, this costs $900 per 50ml, made with a substance that may or may not be from space as they claim and that is supposedly helpful to help stimulate cell regeneration and make you look younger. I’m not sure which of these last two is more improbable. The diamonds microspheres are the “innovative delivery system” and the cream regenerates the production of “key cell-fortifying substances”. Whatever. I’m not that gullible.
This story is silly so I made it sillier. Title reference from here.
