Online only right now, but likely soon to be rolling out into select high-end dermatology clinics and vendors.
You know those skin lotions and potions that flood the market every rear – the ones that promise all the latest technology to feed and fluff your skin to deliciously creamy and bright new heights? The ones that range from $35 – $1000 a bottle? How’s that going?
Men and women pay disproportionate money on products with promises. By 2018, women are expected to spend $11B per annum.
Women are savvy and sophisticated when it comes to personal appearance. They will research a company, an ingredient list, a formulation, and do whatever it takes to learn before they spend. Sadly, preparations and real world results don’t always turn out as promised.
Simple pure formulations can do too little, those with a long list of ingredients often contain ingredients with the potential to irritate and damage skin cells. But hope springs eternal so we try the next hot “scientific breakthrough” product thing and apply it to our faces.
But what about eating your beauty regimen? Taking anti-aging products internally sounds unusual, but women in Asia and Europe have used “ingestible” anti-ageing products for years. The first I heard of such a product is the Canadian made Age Quencher system, created by Dr. Holly Fennell. So I thought I’d give it a try.
I was given a month’s supply to test drive the system, which includes a citrusy fizzy drink mix, a protein shake mix, and capsules, laden with hyaluronic acids, antioxidants, vitamins and resveratrol that work on a “cellular” level.
I had to look these things up but essentially, they draw moisture to the skin and feed it. I was to expect results in a couple of weeks. And they are the foundation of high-tech skin creams.
This is what I used:
- AGELESS™ Beauty Vitamin – a vegetarian capsule that delivers a powerful one-two punch of resveratrol, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins to support skin health and strong hair and nails.
- HYDRATE™ Beauty Electrolyte – a unique sugar-free, carbohydrate-free, and chemical-free electrolyte powder that intensely hydrates at the cellular level to address one of the biggest causes of premature aging – lack of hydration.
- REJUVENATE™ Beauty Protein – a sugar-free, hormone-free grass fed New Zealand Whey protein packed with collagen, silica, fibre and probiotics to promote both skin elasticity and digestion.
The edibles are partnered with INTERCEPT™ a paraben free, fragrance-free, 2-in1 hyaluronic serum and moisturizer. And it’s sweetened with Stevia which is a sweetener derived from a leaf, that has little potential to do internal damage the way sugar and its kin do.
The drinks taste great, citrusy and vanilla-y. They’re to be taken with a great deal of water, so you’re hydrating nicely, more than usual. It augments and kick-starts the ingredients. The serum’s light and pleasant to use.
I’ll take you through my month long experience to the final result.
My Age Quencher Log
Day One – I was surprisingly hesitant to “eat my beauty” even after researching the product. I dove in and noted the extra water going into my system. Everything tasted good.
Day Two – I guess my system’s adjusting to the vitamins and nutrients as I’m experiencing slight digestive disturbance from the fibre in the shake.
Day Five – After a few similar days, the initial internal stress was over. My skin looks awfully healthy, plumped and even toned. There has been a lot of rain lately which is also good for the skin.
Day Seven – Skipped to give my insides a rest from the fibre onslaught but on the good side, I’ve stopped wearing foundation.
Day Ten – Digestive disturbances continue but I carry on.
Day 12 – The skin! The skin! Like a baby’s bottom.
Day 14 – A friend said I was looking good, rested. Digestive disturbances somewhat reduced.
Day 17 – My nails are smooth and shiny and well but mild gastric discomfort continues.
Day 22 – Must interrupt the regiment for a few days for medical reasons having nothing to do with the product. Hope my skin’s great look and feel continues.
Day 27 – Still terrific.
Day 30 – Yup. I like what I see, a lot.
The system works extremely well in attracting moisture into the system and the skin. I noticed a huge improvement in my skin’s tone, look and feel and have set aside foundation and concealer. My skin looks even and healthy, well-toned and pretty. I’ve had skin problems my entire life and hand to heart, have never seen it look better.
The digestive disturbances were a big concern for me. I’m not sure if this will happen to everyone who tries it, but it’s worth noting.
The regimen is expensive at $200 a month, but the benefits, as opposed to using expensive creams in unreliable delivery systems, are undeniable. My nails, hair, and skin improved in major ways. The ingredient list is impressive and I was pleased to consume them.
And yes indeed, the extra fibre intake certainly seems to clear the system.
The Age Quencher system can be purchased as a monthly delivery or as single month-long packs. For the moment, it is available online but the creators hope to have it in stores soon.
