Ever since the onset of video-sharing platforms and the popularity of bite-sized videos catching up, a whole breed of influencers has been popping up on the internet. Most popular among them are those affiliated with beauty and skincare routines, practices, and products. What’s interesting is that every product has the influencer swearing on its effectiveness, backed by testimonials by makeup artists and research from dermatologists. Some have camera magic added to the mix to mislead the viewers to believe in the effectiveness of the product. Others need to be taken with a pinch of salt when it comes to their claim of being effective for all skin types.
However, there are others like Peter Thomas Roth's Instant Firmx Eye and Face creams that are effective* (conditions apply though). Thanks to TikTok user @Trinidad1967, the world became spectators of skin-smoothening within minutes and soon Peter Thomas Roth's Instant Firmx Eye and Instant Firmx Face became trending and popular on social media. You may be wondering what makes it special and how it works and we are here to uncover the secrets of Peter Thomas Roth's Instant Firmx Eye and Instant Firmx Face creams.
History behind Popularity
At the moment of writing this article, Trinidad1967’s video garnered 5.3 million views and 131.6 thousand comments, ever since she posted it on August 26th. In the video, she applies the Peter Thomas Roth Instant FirmX Temporary Eye Tightener cream under one of her eyelids. She smoothes the product under one eyelid to show the difference the cream brings. In under 3 minutes, the audience can see the skin tighten under her baggy eyelids.
When compared to the untouched eyelid, the other eyelid looks smoother, firmer, and the fine lines are nearly gone. The transformation, seen clearly in the video, became a testament to the effectiveness of the cream and took the internet by the storm.
There were two outcomes of this video:
Science Behind the Transformation
Ever since the video blew up, it has got the attention of most dermatologists and skincare experts. According to most, the secret behind the immediate tightening is one of the active ingredients, i.e., silicates. Silicates possess a property wherein they create a lattice and tightens when exposed to air. It is somewhat similar to PVA glue that creates an ‘artificial skin’ when a thin layer is applied to the palms of our hands. However, the tightening effects are only temporal. When washed away, the lattice becomes loose and the skin returns to its original state.
Yet, Peter Thomas Roth's Instant Firmx Eye and Instant Firmx Face creams don’t solely rely on silicates for the smoothening the skin. It contains peptides that naturally rebuild the skin’s elasticity and firm the saggy layers. However, it won’t be as potent as the tightening from silicates.
Ageing is an irreversible and unavoidable aspect and skin will eventually develop wrinkles, fine lines, and creases. Yet, using beauty products containing peptides, you can prolong the effects of ageing without doing any damage to your skin.The only thing to keep in mind is that what works for one may not be effective on you and hence every beauty product should be tested on a local area before using predominantly.
