Bellafab Skincare Matrixyl 3000 Serum Review
Bellafab Skincare Matrixyl 3000 Serum is an anti-aging cream that contains matrixyl 3000, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C. If you haven't heard of matrixyl 3000 before (I know, it sounds like some futuristic product!) it's a major wrinkle-fighting ingredient used as an alternative to Retin A.
This product is touted as being an alternative to painful needle injections. It tightens and firms skin, works against wrinkles, and evens skin tone by reducing melanin production.
The instructions advise to start off with just a few drops each time in case you have any irritation, and then increase the amount slowly after the first week. Of course, I didn't see this until after I used it the first time, so I put a lot on my face and experienced some redness and irritation. I discovered that the cream has a peppermint scent because it contains peppermint oil, so if you are sensitive to that, you may not want to use this. However, I think my initial irritation was because I didn't give my skin time to adjust and since the serum is so powerful. The peppermint oil also gives the serum a bit of a tingle when you apply it.
After it absorbs, it does leave my skin very smooth. I use it mainly on my neck and chest, since those areas are less prone to irritation for me, but I plan to start using on my face again - following the instructions this time! This can also be used around the eye area but because of the peppermint oil and tingle I would advise against getting too close to your eyes.
One thing I really like about this product is the nice pump bottle it comes in, which also features a clear mid-section so you can see how much product you have left. It is also non-toxic, paraben free, and made in the USA.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
