Neocell Ceramides Skin Hydrator Review/Giveaway

I'm at it again, partnering with Neocell to try out a new product, and give my candid opinion of the results, and my experience with said new product. And, once again, Neocell did not disappoint!

I received a bottle of Ceramides Skin Hydrator, with a picture of a beautiful woman submerged in water - she definitely looks hydrated! So, lets see how this works…

The bottle contains 60 capsules, a 30 day supply. Instructions are to take 2 capsules per day. There is not a specific time of day that is better, so they can be taken at any time.

I do suggest making a routine, however. I was not consistent at first with the time of day that I took Ceramides Skin Hydrator, so I missed a few days.

I thought that might effect my results, however it did not - in spite of my own inconsistency, the results were noticeable, as I'll show you shortly.

When looking up some of the impressive stats about Ceramides Skin Hydrator, I noticed 85% of subjects noticed a reduction in scales (rough skin), 80% of subjects felt less pulling sensations, and 80% of subjects felt an improved skin appearance.

I definitely noticed a reduction in scales (apparently I was slowly turning into a dragon!) and much improved skin appearance.

I am really bad about moisturizing regularly - I usually slather lotion on when I notice I am already too dry. You know - reactive vs. proactive! I moisturize my face consistently, but not my hands and body. Oops.

Lately I have noticed that I am more dry than usual. Not only has it been getting hotter and dryer as we move deep into summer, but I have been working out pretty intensively 4 to 6 times a week, getting ready for a fitness competition later this year.

I noticed dry irritated skin all over, including the  palms of my hands, super peely and rough. I just figured that was a part of heavy lifting. Turns out, that is not the case.

If anything, I have been doing more lifting while using Ceramides Skin Hydrator, so I should have what my friends joke about: "man hands." There is a group of 5 of us, and we workout together.  We talk about all sorts of silly things, one of which is the effect of all the hard work we put in: from diet changes, smaller waistlines, defined muscles, looser skin, and dryer skin.

And yet, my hands are far from manly now! Ceramides Skin Hydrator is keeping them soft and supple! For the looser skin, I am going back to Neocell Collagen bursts and my all time favorite, Neocell Collagen protein! They are great for skin elasticity, and they taste great!

So, what are ceramides, and what do they do? 
I believe it is time again, for another lesson at the SCHOOL OF JEN.

Ceramides are lipids naturally found in the skin's outer later that retain moisture, and assist in cell regeneration. When ceramide levels are low, our skin has a hard time retaining moisture - it works as a protective layer to retain moisture. Ceramides are part of the glue that holds the surface of skin cells together.

Dry, irritated, and sensitive skin often lack ceramides - leaving skin more susceptible to environmental factors, just like I had been experiencing with the season changing, which is usually not an issue for me.  Maybe I'm getting old!

I did notice, a few weeks into taking Ceramides Skin Hydrator that I was looking less scaly on my palms and shins.

Does scaly shins sound weird? I notice that after shaving my legs, my shins looked dry and flaky - but the scales lessened as I continued taking Ceramides Skin Hydrator. Also weird, I check out my palms all the time now, and they're baby smooth!

As usual, with everything that I have tried with Neocell, I am impressed. I really did think that "man hands" was an inescapable part of working out hard. Doing the amount of back squats, pull ups, chin ups, t-bar rows, the list goes on, my hands were definitely starting to look rough.

Seriously, they're like butter now!

My husband was absent-mindedly petting my foot the other day, as we watched TV. I looked over at him, and he quietly said "What!? I can't help it, your skin is so soft, like everywhere!"

Now that is what I'm talking about!

If you wish to purchase Neocell Ceramides Skin Hydrator, you can do so at Walgreens, CVS, and Sam's Club to name a few for only $17.99.

Oh, I forgot to mention! Coming soon, to a tummy near you: Neocell Collagen Cookie Bars. They are due out soon, and scrumptious.

I was able to try both flavors, coconut chocolate crunch, and Peanut Butter crunch. I was surprised to find I like the coconut more. I'm not usually a coconut fan, and it has a definite coconut flavor, but the chocolate had me going in for bite after bite!

The peanut butter crunch is also good, my husband finished that one for me. Sharing is caring!

Boasting 13g of protein, only 2g sugar, and collagen infused - how do you go wrong with a chocolate bar that is a true snack and makes your hair, skin, and nails better! Too good.
