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.

Review: Timeless Matrixyl 3000 Serum
I’ve been searching for a matrixyl serum after my experience with The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA. I’ve heard so many good things about this brand, so I thought I would give it a try. Don’t forget to checkout my review on their vitamin c serum! Go here: Timeless Vitamin C Serum The purpose of the matrixyl 3000 serum is to improve skin elasticity, firmness, and texture. The serum fights against aging skin by stimulating the skin’s collagen repair mechanisms. It also contains hyaluronic acid to maintain hydration levels for smoother and healthy-looking skin. The product does state that it can be used on normal, dry, mature, and even oily skin. So I really hope it works for oily skin! I’ve had this serum for about 5 months already. Here are my thoughts on this product! Read on! ⬇⬇⬇
This serum is clear. It feels a little sticky when applied to the skin, but that stickiness vanishes within a few seconds. It leaves the skin feeling hydrated and soft. This is possibly one of the most hydrating, non-heavy serums I’ve used. It didn’t leave any residue behind. Absorbs into the skin quite well. This serum can easily be used with other skin care products without any issues. I didn’t experience any pilling. It feels lightweight and thin on the skin. Love that the ingredient list is simple and short. It contains matrixyl 3000, peptides, aloe, hyaluronic acid, and a few other ingredients.
So I’ve used it for a total of 5 months. The results in terms of fine lines and wrinkles were average. I didn’t see much of a change in my skin. It didn’t do much for fine lines and wrinkles as I had hoped for. I was hoping it would diminish fine lines and wrinkles just a little bit, but I didn’t see any of that. The only improvement I saw from this skin care product is the hydration levels in my skin. It really does help to increase moisture levels in the skin. My skin felt very moisturized whenever I used this serum. But isn’t this serum suppose to help with skin elasticity, firmness, and texture? Anti-aging? I feel like it’s just another hydrating serum. Hmm.
So after 5 months of use, even though it contains matrixyl and peptides, not much of a difference in my skin. It feels like I just wasted my money, to be honest. Also, unfortunately, I had to stop using it due to breakouts. I think it’s too hydrating for my skin type. It claims to work on oily skin, but it’s a no for me. I don’t want to deal with breakouts. The breakouts were pretty bad too. I had a bunch of whiteheads all over my face. I stopped using it immediately, and my skin started to clear up. Something in this serum didn’t click with my skin. It could just be the overall formula of the product. Not just a particular ingredient. Who knows. I just know that I can’t use it anymore.
This is what the serum looks like. It’s just a clear serum.
Pros & Cons
- Very moisturizing
- Feels lightweight on the skin
- Contains Matrixyl 3000
- Contains other ingredients such as peptides, aloe, hyaluronic acid
- Too hydrating for oily skin (on my skin, it was)
- Breakouts, whiteheads all over the skin
- No change in fine lines and wrinkles
- Did nothing for anti-aging, just another hydrating serum
I really wanted Timeless Matrixyl 3000 Serum to work, especially after using The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA. Unfortunately, the results weren’t that great. It’s supposed to be an anti-aging serum, but I didn’t see a difference in fine lines and wrinkles. I didn’t see a huge change in anything else besides it hydrating my skin. This serum is basically just a lightweight hydrator. Sadly, I ended up with breakouts all over my face. I didn’t expect that from this serum, since the ingredients didn’t look too bad. It looked pretty good compared to other facial serums I’ve used. But, that’s what happened. I had to stop using it. I think this would probably work better for people with normal or dry skin.
