I haven't really thought about using any preventative measures against my skin ageing but I was contacted by a lovely lady from Nu Skin a while ago about trialling the *Tru Face Essence Ultra and I couldn't help but feel intrigued.
Nu Skin says 'ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra will help you embrace a youthful looking skin. Formulated with Ethocyn, these uniquely formed capsules also incorporate the power of ageLOC, a revolutionary anti-ageing scientific technology, which targets the sources of the visible signs of ageing, such as the loss of skin firmness'
That statement alone sounds quite promising.
But first up let's talk about the packaging. Ahh, it is simply stunning with the frosted glass bottle and iridescent blue screw top lid, although I'd be quite afraid about breaking the bottle, I'm so clumsy. The bottle contains 60 blue capsules which are meant to be used twice a day, both morning and night. Although I slipped up once or twice and decided on just using once a day instead.
The idea is to apply one to two drops from the capsule onto the affected area and the remaining product onto the rest of your face, and neck. I apply it by twisting the end of the capsule and squeezing the oil onto my hand. At the sprite age of 21 I have absolutely no sign of ageing(thank god!) although my eyes get sore and dry sometimes in the winter which isn't a pleasing sight. I applied the whole of the capsule onto my face and neck including the sensitive under eye area. It surprisingly absorbed quite well and really quickly and although it was in an oily form, it smoothed over my skin and didn't feel greasy in the slightest although I did have to wash my hands after applying it as it's quite slippery. Slippery and oily hands are not exactly appealing.
Although I mainly applied it just the once at night I noticed a difference the next morning. My face felt very soft and supple, almost like a newborns skin. I just could not stop feeling my face. My face felt quite clean too, as opposed to oily which was lovely and surprised me a lot.
I'm sorry that I can't comment on the anti-ageing benefits of it but I really enjoyed using it and loved that it left my face feeling soft. Unfortunately I wouldn't purchase it again as at £181.50 I just can't justify it, especially when ageing isn't a great concern of mine.
Have you tried the Nu Skin ageLOC Essence Ultra?
