Nu Skin ageLOC Future Serum Review

by Laura Kronen on April 2, 2013

nu skin serumNu SKin ageLOC Future Serum was named “The Best Anti-Wrinkle Serum” in the second-annual New Beauty Choice Awards. New Beauty magazine recognizes the best products in the health and beauty industry and is the only magazine I read and trust (besides of course) when it comes time to beauty and skincare products. Add to that my serum obsession and I had to try this product pronto.

NuSkin promotes the entire ageLOC Transformation line as a complete, comprehensive, scientifically-sound skin care system that can result in younger looking skin within seven days of use. Having tried hundreds of products that offered the same claim, I was slightly wary about whether such dramatic results would really be possible. The serum is relatively thick, but easily absorbed.  It is made with a patent ingredient technology designed to promote youthful appearance by increasing collagen production by 150 percent. The more collagen you have, the younger you are going to look.  Can I order a bathtub full?

I’m happy to report that the ageLOC Future Serum not only talked the talk, but walked the walk. Within a week of using the product, I noticed that several lines around the outside of my eyes had diminished in size and that my skin was brighter than usual. The fine lines around my eyes seemed a bit smoother and smaller and, all in all, the texture of my skin seemed to improve. My pores appeared smaller and the tone of my skin was even and dare I say, peachy and creamy.

This serum is backed up with some decent research behind it. Brigham Young University apparently identified a naturally occurring compound that improves skin health. The little-known molecule, called equol, is derived from plants such as soybeans. Its benefits for skin grew out of earlier work by a BYU professor who was testing various compounds from plants for possible impacts on human health. Equol stood out. The BYU researchers did experiments to test equol’s influence on two components of skin, collagen, which gives skin its structure and elastin, which gives skin the flexibility to resume its shape after stretching or contracting. They specifically wondered what equol would do if they added it to the human cells that make collagen and elastic. Would it stimulate them? The research showed the molecule made when soy is digested stimulates production of collagen and elastin. In addition, the researchers discovered equol also inhibits other enzymes that break down the two components. The University licensed to Nu Skin the rights to sell equol in a cosmetic skin care product and the result was the ageLOC Future Serum.

While not inexpensive by any budget- $199 for a fluid ounce, the serum will last you about 2 months.  Regardless, just can’t put a price on perfect skin, can you? Nu Skin
