One Step Anti-Aging Wonder? Boske Molecular Repair

You may ask me, “Jen, do you ever try a product you don’t love?”
I have a big box filled to the brim with various creams, lotions and potions that come my way. I don’t have much patience for a crappy product. I am human just like everyone else, sometimes I’ll get wowed by the marketing, sometimes I get wowed by the packaging or the philosophy behind the product (example: Eminence). However, if I put it on my skin, and it causes a reaction, triggers a break out, and doesn’t feel fantastic – I’m done, good-bye and onto the next new product that captures my attention.
So in 2010 Boske , a fairly new company on the skin care circuit approached me with their all-star product, Molecular Repair . I was having some fairly tough skin issues over the summer, so I made a first attempt and after a few uses, pushed it to the back of the bathroom cupboard for a future trial.
December hit, and the dry, cold weather hit about the time, and then I received a really intense enzyme peel – ooh, my skin was raw! My regular superstar serums were a bit too active to place on my freshly exfoliated epidermis. I reached my arm high in the bathroom cabinet and took another chance with the Molecular Repair from Boske.
Now it gets good.
My skin drank this stuff in. No irritation, no strange fragrance, no stinging. Passing the initial round, the surprise came with what it did for my skin in the coming weeks. Molecular Repair claims to not only soothe with its anti-inflammatory effects, but reverses DNA damage and stimulates the formation of healthy cells.
What’s in it?
A few of the active ingredients:
Olea Europea Extract is part of an Anti-Glycation complex which impedes the formation of wrinkles and improves the elasticity of the skin.
Ultrasomes, Roxisomes, and Photosomes enhance the skin’s natural DNA repair process to provide faster healing for wounded skin.
Malus Domestica Stem Cell Culture Extract stimulates human stem cell production, which results in faster healing and increased collagen production.
The type of Vitamin C Molecular Repair has makes a difference too. While you will notice in many skin care products Vitamin C as either L-Ascorbic Acid or Ascorbyl Palmitate (the most common), Molecular Repair uses Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate a very stable, lipid-soluble form of Vitamin C that fortifies the skin, stimulates collagen production, and brightens uneven skin tone.
A one step anti-aging wonder? I have to admit, my skin loved it. As for results, I did notice some subtle improvements (smoother, softer, more refined skin) while using Molecular Repair. Expensive? Yes it is, not as outlandish as some I’ve seen, but about what you would expect from a highly concentrated active skin treatment (most topical Vitamin C serums cost $130+).
An exciting new addition to the anti-aging skin care arsenal. Keep them coming Boske!
