Review: The Pill - The Nue Co. Clean Skincare

Updated: Nov 20, 2020

All products are not created equally - this goes for ingestible supplements and topical treatments. Throughout my skincare exploration journey during quarantine, I decided to try The Nue Co. I feel so comfortable using this brand because they combine science with natural practices, such as Ayurvedic medicine. The Nue Co. makes clean, organic wellness supplements from natural ingredients proven to target specific health issues. The company launched in 2017 to redefine supplements and the way we approach wellness, due to the sad reality that about 50% of most supplements are just fillers and preservatives. Each product, from their powders to sprays, delivers evidence-based solutions for improving energy, focus, mood, skin, sleep, and digestion. The Nue Co. combines clinical research and integrative practices to create these highly beneficial formulas that meet holistic health needs, with no toxic preservatives, additives, flavorings or sweeteners.

The Nue Co.'s latest product, The Pill, is a topical supplement in the form of a serum. This convenient all in one serum contains 27 different active ingredients. I am a huge fan of using acids for exfoliation, then always replenishing with moisturizing products afterwards, and this combines these important ingredients into a single product - simple, one step skincare. You can see and feel improvements in your skin almost instantly, and over time this will result in sustainable, long term skincare benefits. The Pill is Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Fragrance Free, 100% Vegan, Non-Toxic and Cruelty Free.

I have been using The Pill for about two weeks so far, and my skin already has more of a noticeable natural glow (no greasiness!) and a more even complexion with fewer clogged pores. There is no weird smell or skin burning side effects that some other products might cause, which is a huge plus! This serum contains multiple actives including AHAs, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and CBD to tighten, hydrate and brighten the skin. The combination of these powerful skincare ingredients takes the complexity of layering actives and acids out of your routine so that you have a one-step solution for smooth, dewy and deeply hydrated skin.

For exfoliation, The Pill has Lactic, Glycolic, Citric, Malic and Tartaric Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHAs) to remove dead-skin cells and increase cell-regeneration, which improves pigmentation. The removal of dead skin cells will help with clogged pores and evening out your skin tone - this is a benefit I started seeing after just a few days!

Hydration comes from Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Sodium PCA to deeply hydrate the skin at multiple levels and decrease TEWL (transepidermal water loss). Hyaluronic Acid can improve the appearance of fine lines and improve skin hydration within 15 minutes of application!

Caffeine and Isoamyl Laurate tighten the skin by reducing inflammation, improving circulation and reducing fine lines. In just three minutes caffeine causes the blood vessels at the surface of the skin to contract, creating an instantly tighter, brighter appearance and reducing puffiness!

The blend of moisture attracting ingredients known as humectants, instantly smooths the skin and creates a plumping effect. Isoamyl Laurate, a natural plant oil, creates a “second skin” texture immediately blurring imperfections and leave a velvety smooth finish.

  • 89% of consumer testers reported instantly tighter, less puffy skin within three minutes of using THE PILL. 

  • 95% of consumer testers reported instantly smoother and brighter skin within three minutes of using THE PILL.

The best skincare regimen combines both ingestible and topical products targeted to your specific body and concerns. Ideally, incorporating ingestible skin products like Skin Filter and Skin Hydrator will help you see the most progress, and in less time. Skin Filter provides a blend of vitamin C, zinc, grape seed, and melon to improve sun damage, pigmentation, and skin elasticity. Skin Hydrator combines phytoceramides with hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, and aloe vera to help repair the skins water barrier and lock in moisture. All of the Nue Co. products are designed to work in conjunction, so it is completely safe to use two or all three alongside each other.

Additionally, for the perfect skincare routine, be sure to drink enough water each day, get 7-8 hours of sleep, and eat a balanced diet with whole, fresh foods. Beauty starts from within!
