I've been using Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector from Miracle Skin Transformer for a few months. It's a really intriguing multi-tasking product, but I think I'm using it a bit "off label". Let's start with what creator Sarah McNamara, intended for Vanish to do. According to the company:
- Reduces pore size
- Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoothes out skin's texture
- Brightens and clarify skin tone
LONG TERM skin benefits: This concentrated skin treatment utilizes the latest in skin treatment technology with highly stabilized Vitamin C + Ergothionine – a super antioxidant duo, along with Sesame, Grapefruit and Lupine extracts. The skin-penetrating serum addresses the quadruple threat of aging concerns: fine lines/ wrinkles, sun damage/environmental stress, dark spots and dullness.
- Improve elasticity and boost collagen production
- Fade the appearance of dark spots and improve evenness of skin’s tone
- Reduce surface redness and irritated skin
- Smooth skin’s texture and tone, while protecting against oxidative damage
What is fantastic about Vanish is how amazing it is as a primer. It creates a base that makeup (liquid or cream) sticks to like glue. It doesn't budge for 8, 10 or 12 hours on my dry skin. Even my blush stays in place, which is indeed a miracle. This is a bit pricey at $58, but it's a nice option for a makeup primer with benefits. One last thing. You have to squeeze the bottle when you pump it or nothing comes out. I was ready to take scissors to the tube until it dawned on me to squeeze it.
At the time of writing this, it's out of stock on the Miracle Skin Transformer website. Nordstrom and Sephora also carry Vanish, so never fear, it's available. In Baltimore, About Faces Day Spa carries this line as well.
