Is Victoria Beckham’s New Skin Care Products As Good As They Say?

She launched her first Victoria Beckham Beauty skincare product, the Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser, in November to a rapturous response, and the arrival of a follow-up hero product mere months later proves that Victoria Beckham is one businesswoman who doesn’t rest on her laurels.

The new product, a collaboration between leading stem cell scientist Augustinus Bader (whose Rich Cream has earned cult status) and Beckham herself, is called the Power Serum, and claims to offer everything the skin needs for good health; from delivering key nutrients and providing antioxidant defence from environmental aggressors, to repairing and bolstering the skin barrier itself. It certainly sounds as though it’s a power serum by nature as well as by name, but can a single product really deliver such a broad spectrum of benefits?

“Using Augustinus Bader’s TFC8 complex [the high-tech Trigger Factor Complex comprises 40 different molecules] in this formulation, plus a clever array of accompanying ingredients means we’ve created a formula that’s 100 per cent everything you need from a serum,” says Sarah Creal, CEO of the brand. “It will replace your vitamin C, your hyaluronic acid and your repair serum.” Pointing out that many of the serums we apply daily actually contain dated technology (which isn’t to say they don’t work, rather that they’re not at the forefront of innovation), Creal insists the Power Serum is a one-stop-shop utilising the latest technology to give skin everything it needs to function well.
