​Smartphone addict? This neck cream claims to battle ‘tech neck’

Our obsession with smartphones is leaving us with a serious case of ‘tech neck’ - or so say the brand behind the Troubleshooter neck, jaw and chest firming cream.

With technology impacting our posture, sleep cycle and mental health, the digital age is now also being blamed for premature ageing.

As if we didn’t have enough to worry about.

Described as an ‘ageing sniper’ by beauty brand Time Bomb, the creator of Troubleshooter, the cream is ‘a flak-jacket in a cream’ and ‘will protect you from all known enemies of younger, fresher, more taut skin’.

What a force to be reckoned with.

According to the brand, the neck is particularly vulnerable to the signs of ageing, as the skin is typically thinner than that on the face and harbours fewer sebaceous glands to keep the skin plump and moisturized.

Specially formulated to firm skin and lighten age spots with the help of a magical ingredient called Lanachrys, the ingredient aims to break down excess fatty deposits and tone the skin, in a bid to ‘improve the appearance of jowls and turkey neck’.

Additional ingredients include chrysanthellum extract, sourced from a small African plant - which allegedly stimulates the skin’s natural pathway to degrade fat molecules - alongside olive oil, white tea, pea and white truffle extract.


Troubleshooter costs £37 per 45ml and is available now from their website, in addition to QVC and lookfantastic.
