I went home one weekend & noticed that my mum’s complexion has improved significantly!!! She looks really really different (in a good way, of course). And when I asked her, “what did you do to your face?”
The following is an excerpt of what she said,
“I tell you, no joke. The Face Shop Collagen cream is damn good. It really gives the skin a lot of moisture & even the cheeks are like… lifted up. You don’t believe, you go & try.”
I don’t need to try. When I look her face, I know it works.
Since I am nearing that age to worry about saggy loose skin, I am seriously thinking of getting 1 tub for myself. But I still have not finished the one from Beauty Credit & I’m not very religious with anti-aging for now. That’s because I’m more concerned about my T-zone oiliness, freckles, pus-like zits & dry wrinkly eyes.
But still, I am curious enough to try out that collagen cream.
The first thing that surprised me is the opening of the tub of cream.
See? The opening so small, should be quite difficult to dig the cream out, right? And no way am I sticking my finger in that. It will just trigger my OMG-bacteria signals.
But luckily, it comes with a cute little wavy stick to get the cream from the bottom of the tub. Looks like a cute mini golf club!!!
Second thing that surprised me was the consistency of the cream. It looks & feels like… … soft cheese which is thick & almost clumpy. So I’m very curious to know what it would feel like on my face.
*smears cream on face*
I don’t know if it is because that tub of cream is kept away from the sun or what, but when I applied it to my face, it actually felt good & slightly cool (not minty cool, but more like low temperature cool). No sticky & no heavy feeling on the skin.
I didn’t get any allergic or sensitive reaction & no funny pus-like zits formed around my face. Usually products that are too harsh on my skin will cause an almost immediate reaction the very next morning.
Seeing what wonders it did for my mom, I seriously will give it some consideration in a few years’ time when I need collagen help.
Word of advice: If you get this product, apply some on your neck as well. Then you won’t end up looking like you went for plastic surgery on your face, but neglected the neck. I call it the Young Face Old Neck syndrome.
Also, the only 1 thing that I did not fancy was the smell of the cream. It irritated me with its strong fragrance. But then again, some perfumes with a sharp scent like Calvin Klein or Hugo Boss makes me dizzy too (not in a good way). So, I suggest that before you purchase this product, make sure you test it out first. Because this is going to be on your face the whole night & you definitely do not want to feel nauseous in your sleep. hahaha…
I also did not get to take a photo of the ingredient list because my mother already threw the box away. =\ I really am interested to see what exactly did The Face Shop put in this collagen cream. Well, if I manage to get my hands on it, I’ll post an update here.
In the meantime, I’m going to watch The Mentalist Season 2 now. I love this TV series!
