“You haven’t tried the Metacine Plasma?” It’s hard to shock this particular friend of mine, but her jaw dropped when she heard that I, a beauty editor, wasn’t already bathing in a new cult serum that looks—in passing, at least—something like blood. I don’t listen to every fervent recommendation I hear, but this friend has absolutely fantastic skin despite a decidedly unmonastic lifestyle that includes late nights, cocktails, and sweets.

I got right on it. Based on the ideas behind platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, which are used in sports medicine and high-tech facials (including founder and Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Jason Diamond’s famous InstaFacial, which the product is named for), the serum is bioengineered with growth factors said to simulate PRP’s ability to support skin renewal and repair. Because it’s made with hyaluronic acid, it sinks in instantly (a fine thing for a liquid that otherwise resembles blood). I layer it under oil or cream and sometimes over my vitamin C. I think of my friend—and her lineless, lifted, firm, glowy skin—and sometimes I add a second layer.
