Collagen

by Watsons
Drugstore skincare is one area in beauty I haven’t fully explored yet. So when Watson’s offered to let me try their exclusive range of collagen-infused skincare – simply called Collagen – I took it as a sign. Not to be a skincare snob, but I am very iffy with most drugstore facial cleansers (serums and moisturizers work very well on me!) – they tend to be a bit too harsh on my skin that I end up breaking out. Still, I tried out this Collagen routine for a whole week and while that’s not enough to see long-term effects, I’ll share my thoughts and first impressions on these anyway.
The one thing to note about this range is it doesn’t only contain collagen, it has three main ingredients that help with the skin tightening, firming and smoothening. Collagen by Watsons offers an upgraded Tri-collagen complex which improve skin elasticity, firmness and moisture. Collagen Peptide, increases suppleness of the skin, Hydrolysed Collagen, regenerates skin and Atelocollagen minimizes wrinkles and fine lines.

Brightening Peeling Cleanser
I like that this cleanser is in a pump form. It comes out in a clear gel formula with pink Jojoba beads that act as a mild exfoliant. It contains Mangosteen Peel Extract that soften and help remove dead skin. Once you lather it on your face, it dries out and rolls up into little eraser-bit looking pieces that look like dead skin cells – sort of like the effect the Cure Natural Aqua Gel exfoliator. It’s not abrasive on the skin so it’s gentle enough to use every other day. It is scented so for those not into scented facial cleansers, smell this first before buying. I did not break out from this cleanser, yas! I find it gentle and not at all dehydrating as other harsh cleansers.
How to use: Keep your face and hands dry. Apply liberal amount and gently massage on face with your fingertips until dead skin comes out. Wash off with lukewarm water. Use 1-2 times per week for best result.

10-in-1 Corrector Cream
Okay, so 10 benefits, wow! This CC cream is infused with mineral-rich Caviar Extract to reduce the appearance of fine lines and help improve skin elasticity as well as bring out that youthful and luminous glow. The shade I got it in was quite light for my skin so when I applied it, it gave out a white cast! However, after setting for 10 minutes, it blended in with my skin making it appear brighter without looking like I have makeup on. Reminds me of the Korean BB creams that have the same consistency, quite thick like foundation, but settles and appears more ‘natural’ on the skin after a few minutes. It has light coverage and just evens out the skin tone more than conceal. This is also scented, by the way.
How to use: After basic skincare, apply adequate amount on the cheeks, forehead, nose and jaw. Spread over the face from inside out to the whole face and neck. Pat on face until absorbed. (Not recommend to be spread in circular motion)

Q10 Intensive Moisturising and Firming Body Lotion
Body lotion is something I skip often because it’s such a task to do! Haha! This body lotion is very lightweight, non-greasy, and easily absorbable that contains anti-aging Q10 and nourishing Soy Bean Oil to help moisturize and soothe discomfort caused by dryness. Itchy, scaly skin be gone! I quite like how this is really absorbed by the skin in a matter of minutes that even if I go out and face the hellish humidity that is pervasive in this tropical country of ours, I don’t feel it disintegrating to a melty, greasy mess. I also feel my skin smooth and moisturized throughout the day! Might be my favorite product out of the four here.
How to use: Do I really need to tell you how to apply body lotion?

Intensive Nourishing and Firming Facial Mask
Face masks! I absolutely love these. I’ve tried quite a lot and it’s not hard to please me when it comes to facial masks. I find this moisturizing and hydrating enough with a bit of lifting right after each mask session. Each mask contains 30ml of rich essence to deeply nourish, tighten and soothe the skin. It contains skin-friendly, hydrating and soothing allantoin. I find the mask quite large for my face, though.
How to use: Step 1- Take out and unfold the mask from the pack and apply over your face. Step 2- Press to remove the bubbles and enjoy 15 minutes of relaxation. Step 3- Remove the mask from down to up after 15 minutes. Step 4- Massage the remaining essence into skin.

    I rarely get suckered into buying stuff because of the packaging. When I saw testers of this line, nacurious ako. I was too scared to try the moisturizers (incl. bb and cc creams), so I bought the foaming cleanser, toner, and the peeling milk (that’s similar to cure). I’m liking all of them so far. Esp. the cleanser which has a shaving cream consistency that makes washing my face with it so enjoyable

    Oohhh parang cure pala yun. Never bothered to try it kahit may bigg-ass display sa Watsons samin.. The lotions – I agree it’s quite a task for me as well but I did try the tester out and it seemed nice. Not slippery/oily.
