If you’re into nutraceutical supplements, you may have heard of Neocell. The company is known for its bevy of body and joint health, skincare and haircare products anchored on collagen. Just so we are on the same page, collagen plays an integral role in strengthening and rebuilding muscle mass and connective tissue. In skincare, collagen is key to maintaing skin strength and elasticity and depletion of such leads to wrinkles. I have tried a couple of their products in the past, both of which yielded positive experience so I gladly took another opportunity to try the skincare line, this time in topical presentations.
If you can get past its medicated scent, Neocell Collagen Moisturizing Treatment Masque ($16.95, 28 g) claims to hydrate skin, something my aging skin yearns. While I like that it made my face smoother after 15 minutes of me-time, a.k.a masking, I do find the fragrance quite strong to my liking.

Vitamin C in skincare is a must-have for me because of its noticeable brightening effect on my skin. Neocell Collagen Radiance Serum combines Vitamins C and E to enhance skin’s firmness and elasticity. As mentioned in my previous skincare post, I love to layer Vitamin C and retinol for tauter and more supple skin, it’s a routine I can vouch for in terms of visible results. This serum is surprisingly affordable at $20 so if you’re a skincare budgenista, you may want to check it out.

Neocell Refreshing Herbal Mist is your on-the-go-purse-friendly mist. It’s tiny ($9.95, 30ml) by all means but overall it’s a nice mid-day skin booster, I just wish there’s a bigger bottle so I can easily refill when I’m down to the last spritz.
