chelsie you naughty shopper -- yes I have tried both products -- I stopped because of the nano technology -- I don't understand the concept and the delivery system of both those products are based on nano technology. I did use one entire system and can say that I didn't notice any difference -- maybe I wasn't applying enough.

One thing I was wondering about if the pre-treatment (spray) helps deliver the product could you not use that with any product and get deeper delivery into your skin (if you wanted to chance it)?

we will see, why stop because of the nano technology?? Is this good?? Anyway I should receive next week, I should cancel the shopping network channel.......................LOL I also ordered the showstopper............

I know -- it's addictive.

Nano technology delivers the product deep into your skin -- deeper than can be done if a product doesn't have this technology. What worries me - with this technology does the "nano" particles know when to stop? or does it just keep going as deep as it can -- that worries me 'cause it's one thing to have a product going into your skin and doing what it's supposed to do to your skin but what if it got into you eyes, your brain? I know there was some controversy about this technology which if used correctly is a major breakthrough for science but the controversy stemmed from these nano particles harming the environment.

Hi Mari,
RE: nano technology.
I guess it depends on what the ingredients are that are "nano-delivered"! If it's Vitamin C, then bring it on! I think anything that I use on my face gets absorbed sooner or later and to a lesser or greater degree by my body, so I wouldn't put anything on that would be potentially harmful to any organ of my body. Am I wrong or missing something here?

The nano delivery system is not specified other than it was developed in Japan. The other ingredients -- I haven't a clue.

According to Cosmeticsdesign.com (whoever that is) this is a short explanation of how nano tech works:

Quote:

"A previous breakthrough regarding porous nanoparticles for controlled delivery made by scientists at UCLA is also licensed to the company.

The porous particles are capable of storing and selectively releasing molecules through nanoscale gates that can be opened and closed at will, explained the company."

It sounds like time-release particles but on a much smaller scale to me. Should I be worried?

This is all a bit confusing
and worrying to me
fawnie can i ask are you using any products with nano technology in them? I dont think i am but would like to find out more infor about this.

I use Viterol A for Eyes and Mouth that has nano delivery of Vit A and E among other ingredients. Available at Dermstore.com. I use it over my Retin-A at nite and I swear it works to diminish fine lines in conjunction with the Retin-A!

why wouldn't you put it on first? I was wondering if I used the Aloette energy balance mist which enhances absorption of the serum, but if I used it prior to other serums would it enhance their absorption even though they don't have a nano delivery system? Am I making sense?

Yes you are making sense. I guess I just prioritized in choosing which to use first and decided Retin-A was the bigger gun. Also, if Viterol A could penetrate deeper into the skin, it could probably penetrate a thin layer of Retin-A. ?maybe?
So if my eyes don't pop out from too much "nano" it might help the wrinkles stay away!


How do the Alouette ppl advise using the mist in relation to the nano stuff?
I always have heard to start with the thinnest product and work up to the thickest when layering. How does the mist enhance absorption?

Fawnie to be honest im not sure about this nano technology stuff, think may be id be too chicken to try eye cream with this stuff however some of this alouette stuff seem good, may be il see if any of there eye creams are anti aging enough for me, id never expect to get rid of my lines right under my eyes cause they are far too deep now but fine lines, fingers crossed!

I always thought too you should put your serum on first then or any oils you may use, eye cream and then moisturizer or retinol?

Thanks for info guys

The mist is just like water, it comes out in a fine spray (may be good for settig mineral makeup?) I also found a list of ingredients for both -- nothing harmful in either -- so I think I'm going to resume use; maybe the ingredients would make my arteries younger! I also found out that L'Oreal now uses a lot of nano technology in their products. How can we possibly keep up!

we can''t keep up anew products comes on the market every single day, and it seems to be better than the one we are using..............I'm going broke here, just to keep up with a ggod skin................Maybe nothing can get rid of wrinkles and sgging except restylane and botox, I just hope they have good info at the anti aging show next month.............I'm looking forward to that one..............

I don't try anymore to follow the fads and ads. I just stick to the basics: (don't you know yet what I'm going to say? )
:

Retin-A
Vit C serum
Sunscreen
Facial Exercise and massage.
Stay healthy/don't smoke

Those are the things with the science behind them to prove that they work, so that's where my money goes. Anything else is just on top of those things. The Viterol A is a maybe.
