Our beauty and skin care reviewer, Anais Foley-Kennedy, tried an anti-aging serum and hair products from Epionce and KeraCell.
Anais is Dermveda skin type 7, which is both oily and dry, also known as combination skin. Vata and kapha are equally dominant in this skin type, which is also overly yin in nature and prone to dampness. Find out your skin type for free here!
Review Process: I used it nightly and occasional mornings to clean skin.
Experience: The Intense Defense Serum felt cool and lightweight to the skin. It absorbed quickly into the skin. Most times I used it by itself. A few evenings I added a hydrating moisture over it (if I was feeling dry). I did not notice any scent to the serum.
Perceived Effectiveness: I found the serum effective at smoothing out my skin tone and texture. Overall, my skin is more even and youthful.
Similar Product Comparison: I would say that if you have an oily, normal, or combination skin type, this may work for you. I am fairly sensitive and this product worked just fine. If you tend to be a bit more dry, you may want to add a cream on top.
Recommendations: I do recommend the Epionce Intense Defense Serum to be applied during the evenings on clean skin. If you are dry, add a moisturizer on top. I am wary about wearing too much during the day with Vitamin C as an ingredient, as it can make skin more sensitive to the sun. As always, wear a sunscreen during the day on you face.
Conclusion: This is a product I will continue to use and would recommend to someone looking for an anti-aging product that is easy to add to any skincare routine.
Characterisitics: I did not notice a scent to the shampoo, but I did find the conditioner to have a nice peppermint scent that was invigorating. I wish the KeraCell shampoo had a similar scent.

KeraCell believes less is more…
Synthetic dyes or artificial colors
Function: Cleanse, detangle, and moisturize hair while sealing follicles
Review Process: On several day old dirty hair, I washed and conditioned my hair in the shower.
Experience: I liked the lightweight feel of both products. The scent on the conditioner was a light peppermint that I longed for the shampoo to have too.
Perceived Effectiveness: I typically use more hydrating formulas, so this was a nice change and my hair had more wave & bounce to it. I definitely had to lather up multiple times with the shampoo to feel like my hair got good and clean. The conditioner felt great and had a lightweight moisture.
Recommendations: Use as often as you wash your hair.😉
Conclusion: I wish the scent was stronger but I did enjoy the way my hair felt lightweight and clean after.
