Valkyrae showcases her new range of skincare products

Following days of teasing from the streamer, Valkyrae finally released her RFLCT line of products yesterday. The range includes products like face moisturizer, lip balm, facial cleanser and many more. All these products have one thing in common, which is protection for users from “harmful” blue light.

This kind of light is usually emitted from digital screens like mobile phones, TVs, computer monitors and many more. RFLCT claims that it could cause damage to skin and eyes over time. To prevent this, the products use an antioxidant called BLPF (Blue Light Prevention Factor), which helps shield the skin. Many found this technology to be quite interesting and they posted positive reviews for Valkyrae’s initiatives. However, others believe that it’s a “scam” for a minor issue blown out of proportion.

Others have also stated, Valkyrae and RFLCT have showcased little to no clinical information to back their claims about such a major skin problem that people have overlooked over the years.
