Review: Timeless Coenzyme Q10 Serum
I did a review on Timeless Matrixyl 3000 Serum. If you missed out, go check it out! Also, don’t forget to check out my review on their vitamin c serum! Go here: Timeless Vitamin C Serum So this is the Timeless Coenzyme Q10 Serum. I was really excited for this, since the ingredients looked promising. It’s short and simple. It also contains matrixyl (like the Timeless Matrixyl 3000 Serum). I thought I would give it a go! This serum contains 3 anti-aging ingredients. They are Coenzyme Q10, Matrixyl 3000, and hyaluronic acid. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that helps to rebuild collagen and elastin. Matrixyl 3000 helps to synthesize collagen in the skin. Last but not least, hyaluronic acid helps to increase and retain moisture in the skin. These three ingredients altogether help to replenish and repair the skin while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. This serum is recommended for all skin types (I hope!) with visible aging. I think this serum sounds so much better compared to the Matrixyl 3000 Serum. The Coenzyme Q10 Serum also contains matrixyl as one of the ingredients. Well, did it work?? I’ve used it for about 3 months. Here are my results!
This serum is pale yellow in color. When applied to the skin, it feels lightweight and gentle on the skin. It absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves the skin feeling lightly hydrated. Don’t expect full on hydration. It sinks into the skin and disappears into the skin very fast. I wouldn’t rely on it for moisture. It’s not good at that. But I do love the fact that it just sinks into the skin without leaving any sticky residue or film behind. But (yes) I do wish that it provided a little bit more moisture. It would’ve been nice. I used this serum in the morning and night without any issues with application. It works well with other skin care products due to how lightweight it feels on the skin. It doesn’t pill or roll off the skin.
As for results, after 3 months of using this serum, I didn’t see much of a difference in my skin. It is an antioxidant and is used for prevention. So, it’s one of those skin care products that you can’t see visible results until later on. Who knows how long that would be, haha! It’s not like alpha hydroxy acids or a vitamin c serum (where you can see a brightening effect or fading acne marks on the skin). The ingredients of this product look pretty good though! It contains matrixyl 3000, peptides, ubiquinone, aloe, hyaluronic acid. and vitamin e. It’s very similar to Timeless Matrixyl 3000 Serum with a little more beneficial ingredients to it. The other difference is that I find the Coenzyme Q10 Serum less hydrating compared to the Matrixyl 3000 Serum. It just absorbs into the skin way quicker and more effortlessly.
With this serum, I would continue to use it, but I started having issues when I noticed little closed comedones on my skin that wouldn’t go away. This was one of the last serums that I removed from my skin care routine. It’s lightweight (as I mentioned before), but that doesn’t mean it’s not capable of contributing to clogged pores. After months of using this serum, I decided to stop using it. And there you have it, a lot of those tiny bumps vanished within a day. It looks like this serum isn’t compatible with my skin. I like the idea of it, but I haven’t seen results with it. Also, with the acne that I developed without knowing that it was causing breakouts, I stopped using it. For the price, I didn’t think it was worth it. Well, not on my facial skin anyways. It didn’t work out for me in the end as I wanted it to. The product looked so promising! It didn’t really do much in terms of moisture and wrinkles. Seemed pretty useless for the price. Back to the drawing board, lol.
This is what Timeless Coenzyme Q10 looks like! It’s a pale yellow color.
Pros & Cons
- Lightweight moisture
- Absorbs into the skin quickly
- Contains matrixyl 3000, peptides, ubiquinone, aloe, hyaluronic acid, vitamin e
- Contributed to closed comedones. Tiny pimples vanished when I stopped using it.
- One of those serums used as a prevention, so I can’t tell if it’s working or not, lol.
Strike 3! Another Timeless skin care product down! This was the one that I really, truly wanted to work. The reason why I continued to use it even though the results were below my expectations and what it claimed to do. After months of using it, I didn’t think it was contributing to closed comedones, but who knew when I discontinued the product. Those closed comedones slowly faded away. Also, this serum didn’t do much for my skin overall. It’s a pretty expensive skin care product too. Perhaps it may work for someone else. Just not for me. Oh well. Moving on to something that works. Whatever that may be. haha.
