Joan Collins, whom you might better remember as the infamous Alexis Marissa Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan from a little late-night eighties phenomenon known as Dynasty, has just signed a deal to be the new face of Cellex-C. Upon discovering that Joan has been using their products for years, Cellex-C Cosmaceuticals signed up the British diva to promote a new mystery product set to launch in May 2007.
When I heard that Joan Collins (who is still looking fabu these days) was crediting Cellex-C with helping her age so gracefully, I decided to do some research into their products. Cellex-C is the original formulation that pioneered the present worldwide interest in the topical application of vitamin C. Its patented complex sets Cellex-C apart from all other vitamin C products and is available in all of its products from exfoliators, moisturizers, anti-aging and a complete sun care line.
As for my personal recommendations, I love the Cellex-C Advanced-C Serum, which is a 17.5 % Vitamin C serum that is oil-free and retails for $115.00. I also recommend the Cellex-C Hydra 5 B-Complex, which is an amazing oil-free, clear gel that moisturizes without clogging your pores. Those with acne-prone skin that is too dry from Retin-A or other treatments will love this gel, which retails for $66. It seems a bit steep, I know, but think about it as an investment for great-looking skin. The high concentration of Vitamin C serum is what you’re paying for, and is worth it, if you want to help keep those nasty free radicals at bay. Cellex-C products are available at Dermadoctor.com.
