Silver bullets—the magical weapon that will solve even your deadliest of problems—have found success against werewolves and monsters, but are they any match against not-so-perfect skin?
It’s a question beauty company Cor is putting to the test. It first started with Cor’s silver soap, a facial cleansing product that promised glowing skin. It wasn’t the act of washing skin that was novel; rather it was the main ingredient—silver—that gained the company attention, and a few die-hard followers.
Now Cor is releasing a new line of skincare products intended to tackle issues regular creams can’t handle, with the hope that the metal really is the beauty world’s silver bullet. It helps that it’s a natural anti-bacterial agent, so skin is kept moisturized without getting oily. But does it work? The standout is definitely the Silver Anytime Moisturiser, a lightweight lotion that targets uneven, dry, dull skin (and smells lovely to boot). With its blend of silver citrate, silica, and amino peptides, your skin actually feels cleaner after you apply the moisturizer.
But if it sounds too good to be true, that’s because, well, it just might be; at $115 a tube, it’s a high price to pay for beauty. Of course, if you believe that it really is the skincare equivalent of a silver bullet, it might be worth it.
