When a skincare product comes along that promises to be 1000 times more powerful than other anti ageing products on the market, there are two responses. The first being you dismiss it as marketing nonsense and pay no more attention, the second being you sit up and listen.
I’ve been trialling MitoQ for a couple of weeks now and while I’ve been doing so I’ve done a lot of research and am convinced that this is something new and something rather brilliant too.
MitoQ hasn’t actually launched in the UK yet but will be launching in the New Year in partnership with Net-a-Porter and I think this might actually be a beauty secret you need to know about.
Okay so a little bit of information about the product. MitoQ is a brand new type of healthy ageing product. The roots of the company are in pharmaceutical research and they are first and foremost a science company.
Mitoq protects skin cells from oxidative damage; This is validated and published by the worlds most respected scientific and medical journals. The Mitoq molecule is the worlds most powerful antioxidant. It’s the result of over 10 years of British research and development. It claims to visibly re-densify and heal skin, prevent fine lines and wrinkles, scars, browns spots, skin discoloration as well as hydrate, reduce redness and even out blotchiness. What sets this apart from other anti oxidants on the market is that it can penetrate and protect the cells power source, the mitochondria, which no other antioxidant can do.
Okay, so although I condensed all that somewhat, it’s still a bit science-y but in short this can do what no other product can do and there’s a wealth of scientific research and data to back this up.
What I’m really loving about this though is that despite its amazing claims, it’s actually a fuss free product. You can use this along with your other skincare products and in place of your moisturiser, or for an extra boost, use it with your moisturiser, I’ve found my skin very much loves this without moisturiser and I’ve noticed rapid and obvious results. The cream itself is totally fuss free and I think I read somewhere that it’s actually a aqueous cream base. This is superb for a few reasons. Firstly this bears no resemblance to the aqueous creams we have used on my daughter’s eczema, this is a light and silky lotion.
It doesn’t sit on the skin, it absorbs quickly but feels moisturising. The lovely simple base makes it perfect for my skin that seems to react to lots of things, particularly heavy creams and silicones, this has been tested on all skin types, including hypersensitive. It’s so gentle.
So in terms of results so far, I’ve been using this day and night in addition to my usual cleanser, toner and eye creams and more recently with Hydraluron, and my skin is better than ever as I think I’ve recently mentioned elsewhere. My skin is softer, but more over it feels like there’s more substance to it, it just feels a bit more springy, and as a result, fine lines look diminished, it’s a fact. I have had several people comment on how well I look lately and I credit this along with the rest of my routine for this. I do actually feel like I’m glowing. In fact, hormonal spots aside I’m wearing my Omorovicza BB cream much much more often at the moment because I need much less coverage, my skin just looks… better!
So I’m looking forward to continuing with this product… it might just be the best kept secret in beauty, remember, you read it here first!
You can currently buy it here, they do ship world wide and it will set you back 185USD. And as previously mentioned, you will be able to buy it from Net-a-Porter in the New Year and at the time of writing I don’t know what the price will be.
