Neocell Glow Matrix: Review and Giveaway

If you've been following along, I've had the pleasure of reviewing Neocell products more than once now. So far, everything Neocell I have tried has held to its promise and made me feel more beautiful. This month was all about Neocell Glow Matrix.

From Neocell, I learned Glow Matrix provides scientifically advanced ingredients designed to internally hydrate the skin.  Among these advanced ingredients are Ceramosides™ Ceramides.

Here's what Neocell has to say about it:

So what are are Ceramosides™ Ceramides? Cue another lesson in Jen’s School of Skin:

Dry and damaged skin is often linked to depleted ceramide levels. Ceramides are naturally found in skin’s outer layer and help skin retain moisture. When skin’s ceramide levels are low, skin has difficulty retaining moisture.

“But Jen” you ask, “what are ceramides?” Ceramides are natural lipids and are a major component in surface skin structure. They serve as part of the "glue" that holds surface skin cells together.

Ceramides are important because dry, irritated, and sensitive skin often lacks ceramides. As a result, skin's protective barrier becomes more susceptible to environmental factors, like changes of season.

That wasn't too bad was it? There'll be a quiz tomorrow! Just kidding!

Glow Matrix premium formula supports the skin’s lipid barrier which helps to lock in moisture and smooth the skin.

Glow matrix also boasts Rapid Action Ceramosides™ that help improve skin moisture & elasticity and reduced signs of aging in just 15 days. With a scientifically crafted blend of nutrients, Glow Matrix promotes hydration in the skin while combating free radicals for hydrated and glowing skin and a healthy collagen matrix.

All of which means nothing unless it works, right?

I noticed increasing smoothness even on my hands, they even gave a nice glow! I didn't expect results like this, though it makes sense- skin is everywhere! 

One of the best and most honest reviews I can give are the compliments I received this month. My husband told me just a few nights ago: “l like when your skin looks babyish.” this after a long, stressful day at work. Talk about making my day!

I was actually asked at the movie theater how old I was by the lady at the ticket booth. I had to think “Uuhh, 31. Why?” - I was so confused.  Just as I remembered it was an R rated film, the lady responds “because you look 19.” 

Hell yeah I look 19! This also made my day. I even had on less makeup than usual. Note to self, wear less makeup, be 19.

Derma Matrix comes in the form of capsules, with the recommended dosage being 3 a day.
Key Ingredients are Hyaluronic Acid, Pine Bark Extract, Astaxanthin, Lutein & Coconut Water Powder, and lots of vitamins.

Hoping this doesn't go into TMI, I noticed it's important to be hydrated with enough liquids, as with taking multivitamins, if you're not drinking enough water, urine is bright bright yellow. I noticed this on a day I definitely needed more water.

The capsules are vegetable-based, and taste as such. I would take a sip or two of water to wet throat before downing the three capsules as I did have one stick in my throat… that was irritating. Drinking big gulps of water loosened it and all was well again.

I didn't feel like there was much of a difference in my skin, as I've consistently taken one product, then another of Neocell, so I'd already seen a lot of improvement before I began this round. I thought my skin was as good as is going to get.

It wasn't until today, when I look at my progress pictures side by side that I see the changes. So impressive!

Neocell Glow Matrix can be found easily online and at many supplement and nutrition stores like Whole Foods, The Vitamin Shoppe, and GNC, retailing for  $29.95.
