MitoQ Skin Rejuvenation Cream Review
MitoQ say: "MitoQ is a scientific breakthrough in cellular CoQ delivery technology. MitoQ protects the skin from free radical damage induced by the aging process or accelerated by exposure to sunlight. MitoQ accelerates skin rejuvenation creating a radiant outward skin appearance. MitoQ topical cream moisturizes, lightens and brightens skin. Scientifically tested, MitoQ creates total skin rejuvenation through protection and repair."
I've been trialling MitoQ topical anti-ageing cream for the last month, and I'm pleasantly surprised with the results. The yellow-hued cream is lightweight in texture and easily absorbed into the skin. It feels lovely going on, and a little goes a long way (you really only need a small amount to cover your whole face).
The product comes in a tall, rectangular plastic bottle which is see-through at the top and graduates to opaque black half-way down. My only qualm with this is that you can't actually see how far the product goes down inside the bottle. However, the bottle looks classy without actually being made from glass, so you don't have to worry about it smashing on the bathroom floor if you drop it.
I used this product daily under my moisturiser, and I noticed after about a week, that my skin was looking a lot healthier. It was smoother and clearer than it had been in months. The biggest change I noticed, however, was that the fine lines under my eyes were significantly less pronounced. I have tried a lot of different eye creams over the years (I'm still searching for my Holy Grail product!) and most of them either have little effect or only reduce my fine lines temporarily (eg Benefit's Ooh La Lift). The rest of my face is predominantly line-free, so my eye area was my main point of difference to gauge how well MitoQ was working. I'm really impressed with the results of this product; anything that can make my under-eye area look smooth and fine line free is a winner in my book.
Overall, the changes I noticed were firmer, smoother, softer, clearer skin and a significant reduction in fine lines. I can't say I noticed brighter skin or a lighter skin tone, but I feel that MitoQ's rich antioxidants have rejuvenated my skin and really improved its appearance and health.
