Electronic eye wrinkle patch

I've been hearing a lot about how this new eye-wrinkle reducing patch from Estee Lauder, the Perfectionist Power, is a battery powered super-strength anti-aging device. I took a look in person and was disappointed to find that the battery is "microscopic," which in my mind means it's probably not there. It's a regular piece of fabric soaked in a peptide-enriched serum. However, the sales woman assured me that there was not only a battery but millions of microscopic magical magnets which were patented and therefore secret, and not listed as an ingredient. While I'm now dubious, the theory behind the Perfectionist Power is that the microcurrent and liquid deliver a teeny-tiny shock-like reaction that makes the skin more receptive to the active ingredients in the serum. In any case, I was warned that upon applying the patch, I should expect a mild but not unpleasant tingling which would mean that the electricity was flowing into my face. Intriguing, but extremely expensive, at $50 for a set of just three patches. And now that I know the battery is so small it's invisible, I know it can't possibly also provide some gentle anti-depressive convulsive shock therapy. According to Estee Lauder, though, lines and wrinkles will be reduced by 45% within five days. Perfectionist Power patches are $50 for three, or eight for $100 from Estee Lauder.

Dont believe in that (I work for a cosmetic bruch and I know how it works.)


You should check out Penn & Teller's BS episode on alternative medicine and magnets in particular. There's no science to even full sized magnets, let alone non-existant invisible ones that don't go on the ingredient list. Something tells me that if you put this near some iron filings, they wouldn't budge.
