Nue Science is an innovative three-step skin care system formulated by Lovely Laban, a California-based gerontology expert. The three steps in the Nue Science regimen are:
- The Firming Toner.
- The Age Repair Serum.
- The Age Defense Moisturizer.
One of the first things that caught our attention about the Cell Revival system was that it makes use of many of the latest wrinkle-fighting technologies to both reduce and prevent the visible signs of aging. The list of ingredients for the three Nue Science products includes the patented, engineered peptides Matrixyl 3000 and Coenzyme Q10 in the Serum, the proven collagen supporter hyaluronic acid in the toner, and the natural UV screening SPF 20 in the moisturizer. This means that the Nue Science system both helps to repair skin damage that leads to visibly aged skin, and also protects against photodamage.
The inclusion of topically absorbable antioxidants from Goji berries and Vitamin E mean that the moisturizer also protects against other environmental factors that cause visible skin damage. Many products that we’ve looked at either reduce or protect, which is why it’s good to see a set that takes care of both.
Additionally, Nue Science offers the whole kit via a trial offer, proving that the manufacturers have enough confidence in their product that they’re not afraid to let potential customers try it out first to see if it’s a good match.
Finally, we were impressed by what Nue Science DOESN’T have: The official website promises these products are free of synthetic parabens, artificial fragrances and GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms.) All of these ingredients found in cheap skin care products can potentially irritate skin and even cause allergic reactions or breakouts.
Here is a closer analysis of what goes into each step of the Nue Science .
The Firming Toner: This is primarily a repair agent, and it also functions as a prep cleanser for the other two steps of the system. Hyaluronic acid is the primary ingredient here. Continued topical use of hyaluronic acid has been shown to hydrate and sooth damaged skin, resulting in a more supple skin tone. It also contains witch hazel, a natural cleanser that has been shown to sooth blemishes and unblock clogged pores.
The Age Repair Serum: This seems to be the most potent step of the Nue Science routine. The Serum is 5% Matrixyl 3000. This patented peptide is licensed for use from a European development lab. The key molecule in Matrixyl 3000 is Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, which is a synthetic replica of a collagen molecule found in youthful skin. As we age and skin becomes damaged, production of this molecule slows. Several top-of-the-line anti-aging products currently feature Matrixyl 3000, but few none pair it with a separate cleanser/ toner. This helps the product penetrate the two outer layers of the skin, getting to the subcutis where it is most effective at stimulating collagen production. The Age Repair Serum also contains Coenzyme Q10, another patented ingredients that has been thought to “fill in” fine lines by tightening the skin’s matrix. Finally, the Serum contains Goji Berry, one of the latest sources of topical antioxidants. Antioxidants are important since free radicals are found in air pollution and UV rays. These are two of the biggest skin damage culprits.
The Age Defense Moisturizer: We really like this last step in the Nue Science Cell Revival system. Many anti-aging treatments either repair or protect, but this system does both, which we feel is crucial for maintaining young, healthy skin. In addition to pleasantly moisturizing the skin, this product acts as a powerful skin protector. It features an all natural Broad Spectrum SPF 20. When used as directed with other sun protection measures, this ingredient can reduce the risk of skin cancer and early aging.
The combination of these three products, in addition to the positive user testimonials offered on the official product websites, are what made Nue Science Cell Revival system our top choice.

The Bottom Line
What we really like about this kit is that it’s a one-step skin care solution. By combing visible skin aging and skin protection, your skin tone will see quick improvement while you also build a long-term foundation for overall healthier skin. This holistic approach makes more sense to us than many of the “instant” skin creams that promise quick results but do little to help protect against new damage. Plus, there are no prescriptions or injections, which means no potentially expensive and time-consuming doctor’s appointments. We were also very impressed with the generous trial offer and 30-day money back guarantee, and with the quality of customer service when we called with questions.
