In the search for a quality beauty supplement, do you know where to turn for the best recommendations? Of course, experts like dermatologists and estheticians can offer valuable insight. Beauty editors and journalists can help you navigate the vast market with ingredient know-how and insights into their own trials. (Speaking of, check out our favorite beauty supplements here should you be curious.) And when they’re authentic, even influencer and celebrity endorsements can be valuable. But as far as honest feedback, there's nothing like a customer review.
The appeal of word-of-mouth reviews is simple: Getting the day-to-day experiences of those who actually take it, then chronicle the results, and share that experience can help you, can help understand what the supplement might do for you in the short and long term. Getting ingredient dossiers and science jargon is useful, but sometimes you just want someone to straight-up answer the question: Does this actually work?
And for mindbodygreen's cellular beauty+, the answer seems to be a resounding yes. This vegan supplement contains potent doses of premium botanicals and phytochemicals clinically shown to support skin hydration, elasticity, smoothness, barrier function, and wrinkle reduction.* In the cutting-edge formula, you'll find phytoceramides to support a healthy skin barrier structure, astaxanthin to preserve a healthy collagen layer, ubiquinol CoQ10 to promote skin cell "cleanup" (aka, getting rid of debris) and rejuvenation, and polyphenol-containing pomegranate whole fruit extract for photoprotection.*
These high-quality bioactives work together, and the result is nothing short of wow-worthy.*
"I've found just the thing!"
"As a skin care fanatic, I'm always on the lookout for ways I can keep my skin healthy and vibrant.
