I’ve been writing about my quest to find great products to address my fine lines which have started to appear in the last few years and the Q10 Day and Night Creams from Pharma Nord work in synergy to help ageing skin regain much needed moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Pharma Nord have been providing dietary supplements and vitamins for the last 20 years and are advocated by many health professionals, so it is with confidence that I reviewed both the Co-Enzyme Q10 moisturising creams (day and night) from Pharma Nord as their reputation for quality and attention to detail is fundamental to their ethos.
Q10 Revitalising Day Cream 50ml £12.95
The day cream is perfect for all skin types (although targeted at dryer mature skin) and has been formulated to work on any loss of collagen and dry skin concerns. The addition of Co-enzyme Q10 will help the skin to protect itself from free radicals and encourage new cell production to give the appearance of healthier, more youthful skin.
The skin is moisturised by Jojoba oil and Apricot Kernel Oil which work together to give dry skin much needed moisture and a more supple, smooth feel. Pycnogenol is added to support the production of new collagen and skin cells to help plump the collagen cells and give more youthful look to the skin. Damaged dry skin needs moisture to repair the dryness and also additional support to retain the moisture within the skin, within the Q10 Day Cream this is achieved by the Squalane ( olive derived) in the cream which helps to moisturise and balance as well as to keep the moisture within the skin.
- Paraben free
- Mineral oil free
- Won’t clog your pores
- Deeply moisturising
- Bio flavonoids in the Pycnogenol support the production of collagen
- Jojoba oil leaves the skin moisturised without a film on the skin
- Apricot kernel oil helps to add elasticity to the skin with Vitamin E and A
The cream itself if thick and easy to apply and I found it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave any film on the skin, which makes it perfect to apply before make-up. It has helped to keep my skin hydrated and look visibly smoother and softer, and I have noticed that it has been an excellent base for my make-up, and as it leaves the skin quite matte after applying (rather than leaving a film on the skin) it is easy to apply make-up afterward without waiting too long before applying. This is always a factor when I buy moisturiser as I don’t want to have to tissue off the moisturiser if it is getting a too ‘filmy’ or tacky, so I was really glad to find this gives a good matte base for any cosmetic application.
Q10 Revitalising Night Cream 50ml £12.95
The Q10 night cream from Pharma Nord is also suitable for all skin types with the emphasis to repair and nourish the skin overnight. As the name suggests it’s also packed full of protective Co-enzyme Q10 to help with any ageing concerns you may have and the apricot kernel oil offers a boost of moisture to dry skin.
You can achieve soft and supple skin from the rich Shea Butter within the night cream which is naturally derived and highly nourishing, helping your skin regain it’s moisture and look refreshed. The cream also contains Castor Oil which is perfect for the more mature skin as it locks in moisture and in turn helps to give the skin a more youthful appearance by smoothing and and softening any fine lines or wrinkles. Sodium Hyaluronate (from hyaluronic acid) is the “natural moisture magnet” that retains great amounts of moisture to give you a hydrated, plumped look to the skin, in turn helping the skin to look more youthful.
All the ingredients help to support and nourish the skin while you sleep and give you a rejuvenated and hydrated look to the skin in the morning, all you need to do is to apply before you go to bed and massage into the skin until absorbed.
The cream is thick and feels very nourishing and after using for the last two weeks I have seen a marked improvement on my dry skin, it has helped to improve and even out the dry areas on my skin and I have noticed that my skin feels so much more hydrated in the morning, very smooth and soft. A little goes a long way and I feel the night cream offers great value for money at £12.95 my skin has really benefited from the night cream and it would last over a month using once a day.
