My Review:

I have heard about anti-aging ingredient in skincare such as vitamin C, Retinol, AHA, BHA, cooper and peptide. The first Q10 product I have ever tried was the Swisse Argan anti-aging eye cream. I like that eye cream, it was moisturizing, but that just it. I did not realluy notice any difference in my fine lines. The Inkey list Q10 Antioxidant Serum has a gel texture, it is not like the typical liquid kind of serum more like light moisturizer. I used it in the morning right after toner. I want to add a layer of moisture that contains anti-aging ingredient in it, then top it of with my usual moisturizer. It feels slightly stick but still comfortable to layer with moisturizer and sunblock. It does not piled up on my skin. The Inkey list Q10 Antioxidant Serum color is yellow. Actually it is quite similar looking as the Inkey List Retinol serum, but feels lighter. I try it for one week and small bumps appear on both of my cheeks. Then I stop using it, my skin got better. Then I try it again for another round, and the same thing happen. The small bumps appear again. Too bad it did not work on my skin unlike the Inkey List retinol serum.

It is a bit difficult for me to incorporate a serum into my mourning routine. Maybe it is because I have to use sunscreen in the morning and it did not go well with the serums I have tried. The only serum that can match my morning routine so far are the Mario Badescu Vitamin C serum and Iunik propolis synergy serum.
