NeoCell Collagen Radiance Time Release Serum Vit C+E

NeoCell-Collagen-Radiance-SerumAs I was writing this review, the tune of Madonna’s old hit, “Hung Up” was in my head. Why? Because I kept thinking that time is going by so slowly with this NeoCell Collagen Radiance Time Release Serum with Vitamin C and E Complex. I was using this serum for three weeks before pausing for a few more weeks to try the Fancl Aging Skin Care range. So I ended up taking longer than intended to review this. But still, better late than never!

Collagen boosting promises
This is a relatively new product from NeocCell and I was attracted to its collagen boosting promises. I’ve read countless of raves on NeoCell’s collagen supplements but this is the first facial skincare product I’ve come across from the brand. It sounds like a promising product and the price is also very affordable.

Time-release stable form
Described as a skin defense serum, the NeoCell Collagen Radiance Serum contains fat-soluble vitamin C and vitamin E as well as phospholipids, all in a time-release stable liposome form. It works as an antioxidant to protect skin against sun damage and is able to stimulate collagen production to enhance the skin’s firmness, elasticity, and moisture.

Ingredient list
The product isn’t in the natural or organic category but it is sans parabens. Here’s the full ingredient list: Water, phospholipids, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate, soluble collagen, acrylamide/sodium acryloyldimethyltaurate copolymer, isohexadecane, polysorbate 80, butylene glycol, xanthan gum, tyrosine, proline, cysteine, zinc chloride, ethylhexylglycerin, phenoxyethanol, potassium sorbate, disodium EDTA.

Working all day long
Although I’m not too sure how it actually works, I kinda like the idea of time-released fat-soluble vitamin c and vitamin E as it means I get protection and cell regeneration throughout the day. In addition, I learned that ascorbyl palmitate, a fat-soluble form of vitamin C, is a great collagen builder and antioxidant that works better than water soluble vitamin C—definitely something my skin can benefit from.

Texture and smell
The texture of this serum is in between a cream and a gel, a bit sticky on contact but blends very well into the skin upon application. It has a sweet gum-like like scent that I need getting used to but other than that, I have little issues using it even under my MVO sunscreen.

Moisturizing properties
I can’t say I’ve noticed a significant difference after using this serum but I like it anyhow because of how well it sits in my skincare routine. Although I’m using this serum only in the day, I can use it both day and night if I like and it does not conflict with my other skincare products nor does it make my skin feel dry or oily.

In fact, I think it provides good hydration because my skin feels comfortable all day long with this. In addition, it is easy to use and it is cheap. It might be releasing some goodies into my collagen but I can’t see for now because I believe my skin’s collagen is probably at an optimum level due to the AFC collagen supplement that I’m taking. So except for the scent perhaps, I have nothing I don’t like about this product.

Highly reviewed
If you are taking NeoCell’s collagen supplement, you might seriously want to give this a try to see if it complements your skin any better. If you’re after a good and affordable anti-aging serum, this is one you can give a try. The last I checked, this product garnered excellent reviews from 119 reviewers at iHerb so I’m not the only one liking it. Actually, I am of the opinion that this works as well as other more expensive serum and even if it does not work for your skin, you won’t feel any heartache for losing US$15.47.

    Interestingly, I’m about t place an iherb order and even more interestingly, I’m in the market for a C&E serum! I’ve been toying with the idea of trying the Skinceuticals one but it’s scarily pricey. I’m not sure how it differs or if it’s just a totally different product though.

    I’ve not tried Skinceuticals other than their sunscreen many years ago. I think their stuff are not bad and works for some but yes, pretty pricey. This one is really affordable and the brand is established in the area of collagen supplement for skin. Should not be too bad as the overall rating is good.

    I would to order from iherb but really worried about international shipping. There are so many complains about Iherb. I’m from Vietnam. I don’t know that iherb will ship directly to my home or not…I’m worried about lost goods and no refund from iherb it seems like they work irresponsible. Can you please give me some experience to order from Iherb? Thanks

    This is a nice review, Sesame. I’ve tried this product and I’m totally satisfied with its effect on my skin. It’s really amazing! I will definitely use this again.

    The price is so reasonable

  7. Sesame Chew says:

    iHerb offers good service. Any slip up in shipping is due to the delivery company or the local post office. I have no problems ordering from them monthly now. So you have to find out if the delivery service in Vietnam is reliable. From what I understand, many said iHerb will offer replacement if the goods are lost however, I haven’t experienced that so can’t confirm.

    Oh that’s great to hear!

  9. Sesame Chew says:

    Yes, very!

  10. eve says:

    hi, i am keen to try this. Do u use this under your facial oil? I also saw the HA serum under this brand. Did u try it? I wonder if there’s a need to still use or moisturiser if i use this radiance or both serum together. Any idea?

  11. Sesame says:

    I’ve tried with an oil no problem. Currently using it under my sunscreen which also has some moisturizing properties. Did not try the HA serum because some HA products don’t work for me.

    iHerb ships internationally.
