CoQ10 cream in Japan seems to be the latest miracle skincare product. The molecule known as Co-enzyme Q10 also goes by the name Ubiquinone. The name Ubiquinone comes from its bountiful availability in most, if not all, living things. CoQ10 has moisturizing properties that are known to bring you soft, supple skin.
In my attempt to get informed and do the best for my skin, I’m on a journey to try out a range of different beauty products and relay the findings to you. I always make an effort to use natural, additive-free, allergen-tested and organic products because I believe, to get the best results you need to use the highest quality products.
Along with scouting the healthiest products, I also strive to simplify my routine as much as possible. As much as I want flawless skin, I don’t think anyone has time every morning to apply 20 different skincare products! That’s probably my Japanese efficiency coming out!
When I considered trying this CoQ10 cream in Japan, I thought, well it better be really special to cost ¥6000 for 30 grams. I went into this beauty road test skeptical because, how often do these all-in-one miracle products actually deliver?
This CoQ10 cream in Japan contains an abundance of skin-loving nutrients, from glucosyl hesperidin, hyaluronic acid, kuzu root extract and even gold (yes, you heard that right). Of course, I’d never turn down a chance to cover my skin in gold.
The Active Ingredients in CoQ10 Cream
That all might sound like gibberish, so let me explain how these components in CoQ10 cream in Japan are beneficial for your skin.
Glucosyl hesperidin is a flavonoid that promotes good circulation. It’s actually a medicine people take to stabilize their blood pressure so as it stimulates circulation, this antioxidant in turn improves skin by absorbing UV rays, destroying the free-radicals that contribute to aging and strengthening skin elasticity by increasing collagen in the skin. For this reason, glucosyl hesperidin is often used in skincare and beauty products for its brightening and anti-aging properties.
You’ve probably already heard of Hyaluronic Acid before as it features in many skincare products thanks to its hydrating properties. Hyaluronic Acid is known to increase vitamin A content in the skin which can reverse the effects of aging and sun damage. Hyaluronic acid is also known to accelerate wound healing.
Kuzu root is not only used in skin-care products but also food in Japan. Starch made from kuzu root is used to make kuzumochi, a special type of wagashi. If it’s good enough to eat, you know it’s going to be good for your skin. Aside from being an ingredient in Japanese sweets, it is known as a strong therapeutic herb in ancient Chinese medicine with a really high isoflavone content. The addition of kuzu root extract hydrates and enhances the skins natural vibrance.
Gold is a heavy metal that is said to provide anti-aging benefits. This luxury ingredient is said to electrically charge your skin, therefore reversing the signs of aging. The jury is still out as to whether this is true, but there’s no doubt you’ll feel like a queen slathering your face with cream that contains GOLD! Well, that’s how I felt at least.
I replaced my usual moisturizer with CoQ10 cream in Japan for this beauty experiment and I have to say, I do like that this cream goes on smooth but doesn’t leave a shiny film. It even comes with a little spatula so I don’t have to contaminate the jar by putting my fingers in it. This also helps because I’m notoriously bad at estimating how much of a beauty product I actually need. It usually varies anywhere from, definitely not enough and I end up with patches of moisturized skin and dry patches, or way too much, where I end up with a thick layer of cream on my face, and neck, then subsequently, my arms because I used too much.
The Verdict on CoQ10 Cream
After a week of applying this CoQ10 cream in Japan every night, I feel that my complexion is brighter and my my pores have regulated the amount of sebum it needs. It definitely feels hydrated, even after sleeping in an air-conditioned room all night.
If you take your anti-aging skin products seriously, then this CoQ10 cream is definitely worth the price, but I would only use it at night and stick to the spatula serving size! That way you can make your CoQ10 cream in Japan go further. It’s also the perfect size to take with you on trips without breaking the restriction on liquids for air travel.
Overall, if you’re looking for a quality CoQ10 cream in Japan, this is a great product because it is an all-in-one skincare product that contains many ingredients that I think benefit your skin.
