Growing up, my mother used to always tell me that you get what you pay for, and it’s almost always better to spend a little more and get something that is higher quality. In skin care, sometimes this isn’t true (take Olay Regenerist, for example), but sometimes it is. And with Nanoblur ($14.59, Amazon.com), this certainly is the case.
A Decent Cosmetic, a Terrible Skin Treatment
Nanoblur is a thick, tacky white cream. Like many products promising to temporarily fill wrinkles, Nanoblur has a plethora of silicones. But there is one key difference here: Nanoblur has a high concentration of adipic acid.
Adipic acid is a white powder that is often used to make plasticizers and lubricants. In a skin cream like Nanoblur, it gives a thick consistency that makes the cream adhere better to the skin.
However, while Nanoblur will temporarily smooth the skin and fill in wrinkles, it will not conceal age spots or freckles.
There is also nothing in Nanoblur that will actually treat wrinkles. Nothing.

In a prior interview of mine with African-American dermatologist Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton, M.D., she informed…
- 62As someone with sallow skin and a fear of tanning (too risky!), it’s quite tempting to just dunk myself in a vat of liquid gold and tanning lotions, and just hope for the best. What my skin really needs in order to get a healthy golden glow is a mixture of exfoliation, clean skin habits,…
- 58Thanks largely to the organic and natural product movement, there are a lot of well-intentioned people out there who say things like: Let thy food be thy skin care. If my eighth-grader can't pronounce it, I won't eat it or use it on my face. If I can't eat it, I won't use it on my…
