Hi Lovelies!! I am back!!

The past few months have been, if I must say, crazy! My skin has been through a lot and I’ve run through a number of skincare products trying to cure my skin without realizing that the problem was right in front of me. You’ll understand in a bit. Without further ado, let’s get into today’s product review.

In a previous post, I mentioned that I’d been using skincare supplements to help improve my skin quality hence this review. Neocell Super Collagen + C with biotin was a recommendation to me and it is a collagen supplement for nails, skin, hair, and joint support. I bought it to help build my skin texture after I suffered from skin thinning and I was desperate.

Product Details: Neocell Super Collagen + C with biotin is a dietary supplement. This cup had 360 tablets but it comes in 120 tablet cups and also a powdered form. Take 6 tablets a day.

Price: 16,000 naira. Price may vary based on your location. *Yes!! It was that expensive and I was that desperate. 

My Experience: I bought Neocell around November 2020, to be precise and it took me about 4 months to finish the 360 tablets cup. The prescription was 6 tablets a day preferably on an empty stomach. 6 tablets were way too much for me to take in one day, so, I started with 2 tablets a day to 3 a day and I ended with 4 tablets a day. In addition, I took one tablet of Vitamin C 1000mg a day with it.

My experience with this was disastrous!!! Don’t get me wrong, taking this supplement was not all bad, it had few benefits but boy oh boy! I broke out badly!!! I was battling breakouts almost every week and switching from one product to another. For some reason, while taking this supplement, my skin rejected everything. From soaps to oils to creams.

Although, it is worth noting that this was not the only supplement I was taking at the time. There were 2 other skin supplements I took (reviews coming soon) but this was the one I was most consistent with. I would wake up to find new breakouts every single week. Sometimes, I would treat the breakouts with Funbact A cream, they would be gone and back again within a few days.

This time was a frustrating period for me. Eventually, I stopped all skincare products and limited my skincare routine to only cleansing and bathing but that did not stop the breakouts. Honestly, I don’t know why I did not think about this supplement as a cause of my skin problems. Not until I stopped this supplement did my breakout reduce. It’s been a month plus since I finished the Neocell Super Collagen + C with biotin and I’ve only broken out once. To make it more obvious, the breakout was around the time of my monthlies.

Pros

  • Incredibly faster and stronger nail growth.
  • It helped my frontal hairs as I had some issues with that too.

Cons

  • I broke out badly all through the time I took the supplement.
  • Too expensive!!!!.
  • The tablets are too big to swallow.

Rating: 4/10!

I am definitely never buying this again!!! People’s skins are different and what works for one may not work for another. That was the case with me and Neocell. The fact that I spent that amount of money on something that made my skin worse hurts me the most.

My advice is to be careful before going into taking supplements of any sort, no matter how beneficial they may seem.

Until my next post. Kisses!!
