I strongly suspect that DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer ($85) sprang, so to speak, from the loins of the marketing department. I can picture the scene: the windowless meeting room, the whiteboard, the table a disheveled mess of Powerpoint-generated pie charts and half-drunk cans of diet sodas. "So to sum up," one of DDF's marketing's finest says, "somehow we've got to get a product out there that people will buy even though no one has any money and there are trillions of products already out there".

Marketing person 2: "So if everyone's broke, how about one thing that can do everything. Cleanse, stop wrinkles, make tea...."

Marketing person 3: "There needs to be science though. Like one of those peptidy matrixyl thingies."

Marketing person 4: Science is so last year. Everyone wants technology now.

Marketing person 1: OK, guys. This is great. But rule number one is that its all about instant gratification and getting noticed on the shelf."

And so, "a new twist on anti-aging" was born. Small drumroll please....

DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer is a "patented DDF dual-phase technology" with an Optical Swirl Serum and Promatrixyl. It doesn't make tea (marketing person 1 was getting a little carried away), but it does just about everthing else: "instantly minimizes the look of pores", exfoliates, hydrates and "continually diminishes the appearance of wrinkles".

Best of all, it provides "immediate gratification" with long-term results for a (in case instant gratification has too many syllables for you) "now and later approach to anti-aging".

I have no idea what the optical swirly thingy is all about. Perhaps the seven different silicones in this product contribute to it. What I can tell you is that Promatrixyl is plain old palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, which is Matrixyl (although DDF will probably counter that they added something else to it - perhaps the niacinamide - to give the whole Pro thing).

    Thanks, Marta!
    It's about time someone like you (and me) shouts the truth out! I've been doing cosmetic research for years and if these women only knew what they were throwing their money away on, they would cry!
    Thanks for this forum... Michelle
