♥ I would like to thank elba naturals, for sending me their CoQ10 Crème as a complimentary gift, in exchange for my opinion and review on their product. I am 100% honest in all of my reviews, and I do not recommend products, I myself would not use, or do not like. I appreciate all of my viewers, and followers, and I want to recommend only the best of the best for them! With that being said, Let’s start my review!
As advertised on the label, CoQ10 crème contains a vitamin-like substance present in the human body. It is crucial for cell function because it produces energy needed for cells to grow and strengthen. CoQ10 also serves as a powerful antioxidant that defends against changes to the collagen and elastin in particular.
What it really does; I have been using this product for about 3 days. The product says it is able to be used all over the face and neck, in the morning as well as night. I do not recommend doing that. I will go more into detail about why, later in this article. As I applied to my face, It DID help, even out my skin tone, as some certain areas tend to be a little off colored. I DID notice a significant in the firmness and tightness of my skin. The product contains an anti-aging agent and ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid. What is Hyaluronic Acid?! Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced carbohydrate in the human body. It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin.
There is also a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth.” However, there is no evidence to support the claim that applying it to the skin can prevent changes associated with aging. So It all boils down to personal preference and skin type.
Side effects that I Experienced
- Increased Dryness
- Excessive skin peeling.
- Tight skin (+)
- Firmness (+)
- Even skin tone (+)
hyaluronic acid is a form of exfoliation, along with other vitamins and essential oils this product contains.
Dryness and peeling that I am experiencing, from this product is not necessarily a negative characteristic. I am an esthetician, and studied the function of the skin. The dryness and peeling occurs because, you are removing dead skin cells. Peeling is a symptom and sign of cellular regrowth. You shed a layer of skin, for a newer healthier layer.
my overall opinion on the product and recommendation for the public, as well as the company;
This product is a good product, if you are using it for an Anti-Aging treatment, and a way to exfoliate your skin. I don’t recommend using this as a moisturizer. I do not recommend this for people who have sensitive skin. The product is great for people who have an Oily Skin Type, as it will help prevent and slow down the excess of oil produced by your skin. Do not use more then 3x a week. Use as a means to exfoliate your skin and remove patches of dead skin. I have an overall positive opinion of Elba Naturals CoQ10 Crème. The crème has great benefits if used as an exfoliator. A few things that can be improved, in my opinion, is the display of the product. The product packaging needs to be more flashy and commercial for optimal sales and interest with the public. Disclose on your website, or on the product label that peeling may occur, and explain that peeling skin is a normal process during a cellular growth stage. Many people who purchase products do not have the knowledge of an esthetician, nor do they know what happens during cellular growth. Be more specific.
