AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum
Five Best for Wrinkles 2016
AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum is designed to erase the signs of aging and repair the environmental damage that can cause wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and hyperpigmentation. The anti-aging facial serum is formulated with stem-cell-derived growth factors to promote healthy skill cell regeneration and renew your complexion, as well as a mix of potent antioxidants to stimulate collagen production, fade dark spots, and fight free radical damage. Like all of the products offered in our store, this anti-aging serum has been tested and reviewed by women in the TIA community. So you can feel completely sure that you’re purchasing a product that fights the signs of aging and enhances your complexion.
AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum contains a concentrated blend (over 40%) of the same growth factor proteins found in healthy, young skin. This GF technology restores cell functions to a younger state, eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. With regular use, skin looks smoother, brighter, firmer, and more radiant — and skin cell functions are restored to a younger state.
TIA Review by Marta:
AQ Serum is up there with the greats - at least the ones that qualified for my Five Best anti-aging serums of 2011. There is no doubt that when I update the list later this year, AQ will be amongst them.
When Kristen did my makeup for the last few videos, she said "whatever you are doing to your skin, keep doing it." Mostly what I was doing was AQ - mornings only. I find that as long as I add in three or four nights a week Your Best Face Control and Skin Nutrition's Night Cream, I don't need to layer a moisturizer over the AQ serum.
However, I do think that most users will find the solution less oily than BioEffect and less gel-like than ReLuma's serum. AQ is a slightly milky, very light solution. It goes a long way and, in my experience, need only be used sparingly - indeed, should be used sparingly to avoid pilling under makeup.
AQ's formula is simple: a couple of vitamins, lactic acid and glycerin with the dominant ingredient being the active human fibroblast conditioned media. According to the bumpf that came with my free sample, AQ has a concentration of 42% of these growth factors.
For a quick primer on what this is: from progenitor cells of human fibroblast, new cells are created in a laboratory and the conditioned media is, in fact, the solution (sugars, amino acids and such) secreted in the petri dish in which the cells are grown. These proteins are what make it into our serums, and they are said to contain growth factors that stimulate skin cells to repair damage that has accumulated over the years, such as hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. AQ says that it uses a "cell sorting technology" to ensure that the formula only includes growth factors that are beneficial to the skin.
My (not especially elegant) plastic pump is said to hold enough for about 8 weeks. I would say it will last as least as long as that. I can also tell you that I will be using it to the end and will purchase a second bottle.
