I love the Q10 range from Balea. I had used face and eye cream from their range and I was satisfied with the results. I picked up these capsules in Prague when I spotted them. So, read on to know more about Balea Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate Capsules.
Price and Quantity: $2 for 7 capsules
The Balea Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate with Shambrilla Oil and Vitamin E provides the skin with valuable ingredients. The concentrate with Q10 and Ginseng extracts reduces the fold depth, increases the skin elasticity and the skin’s firmness. This makes the skin look smoother when used regularly and has a younger appearance.
My Experience with Balea Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate Capsules:
The capsules come in a sealed cardboard package. The strip inside holds the 7 capsules. The strip is easy to carry and the product is travel-friendly. Each capsule has sufficient quantity for face and neck till the collarbone. The capsules are yellow gold in color and are made of silicone- rubber like material, which can be squeezed. The capsule can be easily opened without any issues but be a bit careful while opening as there are chances of tear and it can be messy.
The serum has to be applied to the cleansed face. The serum is clear/transparent and has a semi-thick consistency. It has a gel-like texture and feels sticky. The smell is pleasant and similar to the other products from the range. The serum, when applied to the skin, gets absorbed quickly. However, it leaves a sticky oil-like residue behind.
The product contains silicones and you can easily figure it out due to the velvet-like smoothness during application. I am not sure if silicones have any bad effects but the presence of silicones provide only temporary effects. I prefer to use the capsules in the night as they tend to get oily. The product luckily doesn’t cause any breakouts or irritation. I use the serum near the eye area as well and have not faced any issues.
I usually use the capsules as a 7-day treatment. The product keeps the face effectively moisturised for more than 8 hours and intensively nourishes the skin. Every morning I wake up to a beautiful skin. I notice that my skin tone has lightened over time and looks very radiant. The product also evens out the skin tone if used for a week continuously. I believe it offers more, but since it contains silicones, I do not use it for more than a week.
The serum also fades the faint lines but doesn’t work on deep wrinkles. I didn’t notice any changes in my pigmentation or blemishes. Even though the product claims to add firmness to the skin, this effect was hardly noticeable. The results can be quickly seen on the skin, though. The serum makes the skin very soft and supple and fills it with the needed moisture. But this effect is only temporary, and within 2-3 days of stopping the use, the results fade away.
So, summing up:
Pros of Balea Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate Capsules:
• Gets absorbed quickly.
