Peace Out, aka the brand behind some of our favorite pimple-fighting products, just launched its latest skin-care patch innovation for fine lines and wrinkles. Aptly called Peace Out Wrinkles, these Band-Aid-like patches feature 450 self-dissolving hyaluronic acid microneedles that allow its powerhouse ingredients to penetrate the skin more aggressively and thereby work more effectively.
Peace Out infused the new at-home patches with a wrinkle-reducing cocktail of retinol, peptides, and vitamin C that work to boost collagen and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after just a few uses and continue over time. A consumer study conducted by the brand over a two-week period found that 70 percent of the participants reported their fines lines and wrinkles looked less noticeable. Additionally, 95 percent said the patches didn't leave their skin feeling sensitive or irritated, which can often be the case with retinol products as well as with microneedling.
This isn't the first time that Peace Out has used microneedling technology in its patches. Earlier this year, it launched Peace Out Dark Spots, which are hyperpigmentation-fading patches that use microneedles to create tiny pathways within the skin for better ingredient absorption and more effective results. And the ingredient delivery system doesn't stop there: Another brand that uses microneedling technology in its skin-care products is Acropass, a K-beauty company that created patches called Trouble Cure to address cystic acne.
Cosmetic chemist Ginger King previously told Allure: "For actives to work, enhanced penetration is important." This is precisely why microneedling patches can be so efficacious, as they enable ingredients to get deeper into the skin and work more effectively. Peace Out Wrinkles can be used on crow's-feet, smile lines, forehead wrinkles, and fine lines between the eyebrows. And they're suitable for all skin types — even sensitive.
Peace Out Wrinkles are $28 for six patches. They launched on peaceoutskincare.com December 12 and have already sold out. The good news: They launch exclusively on sephora.com December 19. Set those reminders, folks, you definitely don't want to miss your chance to try this skin-care innovation.
