Eclado Revitalizing Elastin & Collagen Serum Review

Eclado Revitalizing Elastin & Collagen Serum

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Today, I am excited to share my review of the Eclado Revitalizing Elastin & Collagen Serum. I have been using this serum for over three months and I have to say, I am pretty impressed. Eclado is a brand my daughter and I discovered earlier this year via W2Beauty. We were both drawn in by Eclado's promise to provide specialized formulas to care for different skin issues while nourishing and hydrating the skin.

So far, we have both tried their sheet masks (a three in one that is unique and great for all skin types), my daughter tried their pore ampoule (which she likes a lot), and I am currently in the process of testing 2 other products from them. For me, it was their anti-aging products that caught my attention as that is one of my biggest skin care concerns. My hope with this Elastin & Collagen Serum is that it would improve elasticity of my skin and help to improve my skin texture as well. Read on to find out if this serum fulfilled my wishes!

Helen's Thoughts: When it comes to products that needs long term use to see visible results, patience is key. After all, even the best skin care products needs time to deliver their best results. The amount of time it can take to see results can vary per person as everyone's skin type is different. For me, while the hydrating effects were there each time I applied the serum, it was the improving overall appearance and improving skin's elasticity that took longer to notice. I was well into my third week of twice-a-day use before I started to notice those effects. I did, in those three weeks, have moments of doubts but I am glad I waited through it as the results are worth the wait.

To isolate this serum's effectiveness on its own and than to see its effectiveness combined with other anti-aging products, I decided to test it three ways. First, I switched out all of my anti-aging skin care products so that the only anti-aging related product in my routine was this serum and sometimes sheet masks. I tested this for six weeks. Then I took a two week break to see what would happen to my skin without it. Finally, I reintroduced the anti-aging products I was previously using in my routine and added this serum back in to see the combined effectiveness of these products.

The first skin care benefit that peeped through was the improvement of my overall appearance at three weeks in. My skin became visibly smoother than before and it had a soft glow to boot. While it was not a dramatic change, it was enough for me to notice. Then came in the firmness. Again, not dramatic but the changes in my areas of decreased elasticity were noticeable. As I kept going, my skin felt more resilient and smoother. Plus the glow was still there. Six weeks went by fast and before I knew it, it was time to take a break from the product to see the effects without it. And as I suspected, I lost much of the elasticity, smooth texture and glow during those two weeks. I was happy when those two weeks ended as I can finally reintroduce my anti-aging products and add back in the Eclado Revitalizing Elastin & Collagen Serum. With all of my anti-aging products working together, the effectiveness were more noticeable and potent. My skin was back to the smooth texture, soft glow, and resilience in a little over two weeks and it continues to improve each day.

Final Thoughts: My skin fully enjoyed its time with the Eclado Revitalizing Elastin & Collagen Serum. It provided a smoother complexion and more resilient skin with a soft glow as well. While it is not a miracle product and the effects it offers are not dramatic, in my opinion it is still pretty good. This serum's price tag might seem slightly shocking to some at first glance, however, if you use the $1 per ml measure you'll find that it is actually decently priced as it does come with 100ml of product. A lot more than the common 30ml bottles of serums. (Although, it might be nice to have a smaller version of the serum, so people can try it before committing to the larger size.)

Would I purchase it in the future? Most likely. This serum has been a great addition to my current skin care routine as it has added to the anti-aging benefits the products in my routine provides. The 100ml bottle will last a long time as well. I am exploring the market for a more budget friendly version but I would be happy to buy another if I do not come across a comparable and cheaper version before I run out of my current one. Do I think this serum is worth a try? Yes, if you have the budget and are looking for these benefits. This is a great serum that does what it promises, so it is worth checking it out!
