Just ask arjun


I reviewed Correxiko’s Collagen Supplement a few months ago, and since then, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know more about the brand and chat with one of their founders. I think the green/clean beauty community has some of the most amazing people on the planet, and the founders of Correxiko are some of the loveliest. They are however, very media shy and prefer to stay out of the limelight. They just like to let the quality of their products do all the talking.

What is Correxiko?

Without divulging too much information about the founders, here is a quick intro into Correxiko. Correxiko was launched in January 2016 in California with the idea of ‘transformational beauty from the inside.’ Despite being US-based, they are ‘all British,’ and the product R&D and manufacturing is based in the UK (they couldn’t find a US facility that uses the stringent ‘clean’ standards they needed).

It was founded because one of the founders, formerly with a NYC hedge fund, couldn’t find any beauty supplements that worked for her. Her gastroenterologist, now co-founder and business partner, spoke at length about the ingredients, and he explained ‘appropriate’ doses in those trialled brands, explaining how pointless these
ingredients were in terms of absorption and making an actual difference to her skin, some products containing sugars and, incredibly, ingredients that were harmful to her body.

And so, Correxiko was born. Correxiko is meant to be the secret ‘extra’ for men and women who already eat well and take care of their bodies. Correxiko’s drives are that every single one of their products works, uses clean ingredients, and contains doses that make a visible, ‘feel-able’ difference to your body.

What is Close Up Skin Supplement?

Close Up Skin Supplement is Correxiko’s hero product (and bestseller). You get a massive pink box with 28 daily sachets, each containing a daily dose of five capsules, with a distinct skin care concern targeted by each capsule. The five capsules are:

  • Cell Anti-age
  • Skin Smooth and Soft
  • Sun Correx
  • Pro-Absorb
  • Energy +

Correxiko’s marketing material labels the supplement ‘the most advanced skin supplement in the market today:’

The ground-breaking formula includes Astaxanthin to neutralise free-radical oxidative stress, Lycopene for UV protection, essential nutrients to stimulate skin renewal, Collagen precursors to support the tensile strength of the dermal matrix, Hyaluronic acid to maintain extracellular hydration, and Resveratrol to help the body’s fight against inflammatory action, and additional Potent Probiotics, Energy + Mood boosters, Essential Enzymes, Amino Acids, Minerals and Superfoods

Is it suitable for men?

The label on the box says ‘Skin Supplement for Women,’ and I wasn’t sure it would be suitable for men considering some of their other supplements clearly indicate that they are ‘for men and women.’

I asked their founders about this, and the answer was yes, absolutely: it can definitely be taken by men.

The reason it sates ‘for women’ is because they will be bringing out a separate skin supplement for men in late 2017, with a more male-friendly design (men don’t like pink, you see!). Also, the RDAs are ever so slightly for men, and the men’s supplement will have those adjusted to reflect the recommended dietary allowances for men.

What are my thoughts?

I love it. I really think it’s the best skincare supplement I’ve taken. If you invest in just one skincare supplement, this should be it. The reason I rate it so highly is because it addresses a variety of skin concerns, ranging from pigmentation issues to skin elasticity and premature ageing, in a very scientific way.

Since taking it, my skin just feels brighter and just healthier overall. Granted, I do use very high-end, very clean skincare products, but I see a visible difference when I take this supplement regularly. In addition to helping the skin, it also seems to boost my overall health and immunity. I have more energy and feel less prone to coughs and colds (which, for some reason, I’m highly prone to!).

This review sample was sent to me by Correxiko, but I’ll continue purchasing/repurchasing it. There’s nothing else like it on the market, as far as I am aware.

When do I take it?

I take it every morning, with breakfast. It’s important to take it on a full stomach because it’s very potent. The Energy+ capsule contains guarana/caffeine, so it may not be a good idea to take this at night. As with any nutritional supplement, if you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medication or have a medical condition, please consult your health practitioner before taking this product.
