CoEnzyme Q10 Serum

I have another Timeless serum product, other than the Vitamin C, that has become a part of my daily routine. The Coenzyme Q10 serum is the second I use after washing my face.

NYX is the answer to “why can’t they make good cosmetic products at a reasonable price?”  NYX offers a full cosmetic line at very affordable prices. They claim to be professional quality, which may be a bit of an exaggeration, but even if they don’t quite meet those standards, many of their products are quite good. I was turned onto the line from my youngest daughter (21) and that seems to be the age they’re marketing to. However, there are many selections that work well...
