I just came across this article and couldn't believe it! It's crazy what cosmetic scientists can come up nowadays! Has anyone else tried this before?!

Hasn´t this been around several times before? If there was something so truly miraculous in sperm, all the big name skincare companies (Olay, along with all the department store brands) would have probably already added it to their creams. Although, it probably doesn´t sound fancy enough for them, after all, who´d spend $300 on a sperm face cream when you get exotic algae or rainwood forest tree leaf extracts for that money lol

 

I think it´s BS and I wouldn´t waste my money on any "new" wonder ingredient, unless it´s been proven to work by several unbiased sources. Any company can publish a sponsored "scientific" trial and claim that their cream is better than the rest.

It seems like women (and women´s magazines) get excited about every "new" skincare hype in hopes of it being the next best thing. Only for that reason companies keep making up those stupid hypes all the time.

I am a bit apprehensive about getting this myself because the price is pretty steep. But actually, I don't think this has ever been tried before. The company who made this ''spermine'' stuff is the only company that has successfully synthesized human sperm which is pretty crazy when you think about it lol. I'll stick with my facemasks for now though......

I'm going with BS as well.  I'm not going to trust "Science to the rescue!" as any sort of scientific evidence from a random 5 day old blog.  Feels more like a shock story to try to get more people to visit the blog than any sort of real finding.

 

I also agree with Andi, that if it was some sort of miracle breakthrough, that the big companies that put a LOT of money into R&D would be looking into it, testing it, and most likely re-packaging/renaming it, and the story you'd be hearing is "You'll NEVER believe what XYZ ingredient REALLY is!" instead of some random blog introducing a new sperm facial.

 

That sounds more like one of those "published" stories that college guys try to use to talk their girlfriends into "trying it out" for "free" instead of hundreds of dollars.

I don't think I've ever seen a porn star or a prostitute with good looking skin.  Even if I did, it's not like I'm going to think: I'll have what they're having!

That's a real freakout! I'd just slather saliva on my face than do that CRAPPY PORNO THING! Is that a way to promote the 3-letter-word if you know what I mean?!
