Nanoblur: Worth The Hype?

You may have heard about the latest anti-wrinke craze to hit the UK... Nanoblur claims to knock 10 years off in 40 seconds.

With a claim like that, supported by very impressive looking 'before and after' photos and a surprisingly low price tag of £19.99, I was determined to put it to the test...



The formulation of the product is similar to a silicone based primer, and it does contain silicones. The idea behind Nanoblur is that it contains minute light-scattering particles that effectively 'blur' out imperfections in the skin. It is a cosmetic treatment and doesn't claim to have long term anti-wrinkle improvement or prevention properties. You are instructed to apply it over foundation (if you wear foundation).

To put the product to the test, I asked my mum to step in as guinea pig. She's an skincare obsessive so, while a little reluctant to have her wrinkles scrutinised by the world... she couldn't resist the prospect of looking 10 years younger in 40 seconds.

                                              Before                                                   After

I think '10 years younger' might be a little optimistic!

Having said that, there is a noticeable improvement in her skin tone and appearance of larger pores (especially on the forehead). Wrinkle-wise, it doesn't seem to make a difference to the deeper ones, but a lot of the finer lines appear diminished (forehead again, and a little around the eyes). It also has a mattifying effect on the skin.

Overall, it's most definitely not going to make you look 10 years younger, but it does make your skin look lovely. It's not Poly-filler, so won't fill in the deepest wrinkles, but it will give you better results than the majority of high end products out there, and with that... I'm very impressed.

I think this would be a great product for those of you who are concerned with large pores and/or the early signs of ageing as it does seem to diminish fine lines, uneven skin tone and visible pores.

Nanoblur is available now from Boots, £19.99 for 30ml.

  2. Your ma looks gorgeous! And it really did do a lot for the appearance of pores, which does make the face look nice when you're wearing makeup. If this ever comes to NZ I might consider it for me AND my mum!

  7. It seems similar to Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch... apart from the price that is as this is a lot cheaper! Have you tried Clarins Fleur and if so do you think they are similar?

  10. I have tried it too and my mum found the most difference on her forehead as well. It's ingenious at filling in very fine lines and literally blurring out the surface area.

  16. I love this post — you got your mum to test drive it. Despite the 10 years younger tag line, it does what it says...."blurs" the lines of age a little....but 10 years is a bit much for sure...

  17. All these products always say they take you more ages than they actually do, but I can see change in there, maybe not 10 years, but now I know what I can check out to buy my mum for Christmas! Thanks =D
