A Skin Fix

The Promise

A dual phase anti-aging serum, Zirh's Reverse ($45) offers instantly smooth skin and smaller pores while gradually reducing wrinkles for younger looking skin.

The Trial

Upon first inspection, the twisting blue helix suspended in the clear gel looks like something out of the new Tron Legacy. After a morning shave, you apply a dime-sized amount to your face and neck. Though it pumps out blue, it goes on clear and has absolutely no scent. You can use it daily, which is simple since it smooths on easier and absorbs quicker than any lotion.

The Results

The name promises a lot. And after a week, it's hard to tell if this will truly "reverse" time and keep skin from aging. But we're okay with that. A man's mug shouldn't look like that of a pubescent pop star. But one thing is clear, this stuff feels great. The weightless gel doesn't leave behind a slippery, sticky residue. What's more, it leaves your face looking almost airbrushed—smooth, matte and just, perfected. If it's doing more than that under the surface, then that's a bonus.
