As a woman, skin care products are important to me. I want products that can be trusted to do what they claim. In the past, I have spent my fair share on ones that didn’t work as they said. Many did nothing at all, which leads us to this review.
I was interested in trying anti-aging skin care products offered from Timeless Skin Care (It’s never too early to begin the anti-aging process). Timeless Skin Care’s products are simple, with a small number of ingredients. Unlike much of other skin care lines, they believe in the old saying of “less is more and more is less”. Because of their reasoning, Timeless products formulas are simplified by mainly focusing on one important ingredient, adding only other ingredients as necessary. Also, I was happy to read they are a cruelty-free company, with no testing on animals.
Ingredients Contained in This Timeless Skin Care Product
- L-Ascorbic Acid
- Alpha Tocopherol
- Polysorbate 80
- Benzyl alcohol
- Ferulic Acid
- Propylene Glycol
- Sodium Hyaluronate
- Dehydroacetic Acid
Keep in mind, just because Timeless uses fewer ingredients than other product lines, does not mean it lacks in effectiveness. The same as with higher priced products, they are not more effective because they cost more. All their ingredients are natural and paraben free. Unlike other skin lines, there is no fragrances or color dye used in this formula.
Main Ingredient Benefits
The ingredients used in Timeless Skin Care are known to work wonders in skin care.
L-Ascorbic Acid – The active form of vitamin C, L-Ascorbic Acid is known to be beneficial in many ways. One way is with our skin. This helps by creating a younger healthier looking skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, can calm and smooth the skin, help in the production of collagen, evens skin tone, and retains moisture. In addition, vitamin C helps protect the skin’s surface by defending it from free radicals, which is known to cause skin cell damage. Restores antioxidant function of vitamin E.
Alpha Tocopherol – The active form of vitamin E, Alpha Tocopherol benefits the skin in many ways. It is an antioxidant helping to defend your skin from free radicals. Works as a UV radiation protector, although not as powerful to be used as your only form of sunscreen. When applied topically it moisturizes which helps in the reduction of wrinkles caused by the sun. The skins natural moisture content is increased prevents premature skin aging and helps in the treatment of dark circles. Works to increase the effectiveness and life of vitamin C.
Ferulic Acid – Another ingredient which works as an antioxidant is Ferulic Acid. Helps to make vitamin C and E a more powerful and longer lasting antioxidant. Applied topically, it helps in preventing sun damage to the skin which slows sign of aging by reducing wrinkles.
Panthenol – A derivative of vitamin B5, Panthenol has anti-aging benefits to the skin when applied topically. Some other benefits include healing and revitalization as well as moisturizing to the skin by helping to retain water.
Sodium Hyaluronate – A sister to the popular and very effective anti-aging product hyaluronic acid, is Sodium Hyaluronate. This ingredient helps skin retain its natural moisture making it extremely effective in anti-aging. It’s considered to be a more effective ingredient for skin care than hyaluronic acid because of its ability to penetrate the skin more easily.

My Final Conclusion After Using Timeless
After receiving this product, I rapidly added it to my daily skin care regimen. This product is contained in a glass bottle colored cobalt blue with a rubber cap and lid. This is great, due to clear plastic being a cause for products to lose their effectiveness and freshness. This product already contains a dropper. I had no problems with the lid and the dropper that it shipped with. However, I have seen others complain of loose-fitting bottle lids.
I applied this product to my skin twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. There were a few days where I was unable to apply it due to me rushing out the door in the morning. You don’t use much, I only needed two drops for each use to fully cover my face and neck. I enjoyed how after quickly absorbing, there was no oily or greasy feeling or residue left on my skin. My skin felt smooth after each application. My skin type is normal to dry so it was nice feeling my skin so soft and smooth.
After one month’s use, the texture of my skin felt softer than before with its texture improved. Dark circles under my eyes were beginning to fade. I noticed my skin was brighter than usual as well. There wasn’t much difference, but enough to notice after only a month.
I wasn’t crazy about the smell, but it disappeared fast. If you are one with a sense of smell that is sensitive, the smell of this product might bother you for a couple of minutes. I didn’t have any allergies or reactions to my skin. However, this does not mean you won’t.
I was happy with Timeless Skin Care and hope to continue seeing improvements. I would recommend adding 20% Vitamin C Plus E Ferulic Acid Serum to your daily skin care regimen.
