If you have been following my instagram (@ryanraroar), you’d have noticed that I had been given a bottle of Ceramiracle Ceramides Skin Supplement to sample and try for a month to see how well i liked it, and how my skin have benefited from it.
Well, after taking it for a complete month, it is time for a proper review of this made-in-Singapore skin supplement! Read on to find out all about it.
But first, a little info about the brand:
The science behind Ceramides skin supplement:
And a little more about the star ingredient – PhytoflOral:
According to the brand, the Ceramiracle Ceramides Skin Supplement is/has:
And these are some additional info i found:

Well, here’s my experience with the skin supplement:

|Personal take||:||I have been taking Ceramiracle for a complete month now and i am absolutely happy to report that it actually works! Before this, my skin was a little….combination-dry-ish from using way too much pimple cream. Consequently, there were dry patches on my cheeks and forehead and regardless of how thick a moisturizer i apply, I could still feel the dryness especially when i smile or frown.
When i received my bottle of Ceramiracle, of course i was really excited to try it! I mean, come on, it says that “Supplement can dramatically increase skin hydration, reduce fine lines, brighten and even skin tone in 15 days” and i sorely wanted it to work, if not, overnight. So okay, i began taking the supplement and monitored my skin daily. To be honest, upon the 15th day, i didn’t actually feel any difference. It was not until the 19th day that I felt that my skin didn’t hurt that much when i smile, nor feels tight when i frown. That is when i know that the supplement has started to work!
19 days into taking the supplement, i can actually see that my skin is a lot more radiant, post-acne marks lighten so much faster and when i smile or frown, my skin didn’t feel as painful nor tight like it did before when my skin was dry. Another interesting observation was that any pimples i had, all started to heal at a slightly faster rate and weren’t as red as before. I believe i have to thank the anti-inflammatory properties in the supplement for that!
PS. A brand rep later told me that i should touch my elbows because they should now feel a lot smoother, softer and less crinkly. Well, mine are definitely smoother and softer!! That is a good indicator that the Ceramiracle is working out for you, yay!
|Will i recommend it?||:||YES! Although it’s a little pricey, but for the proven efficacy, I think it is an investment for the skin well spent!|
