I’ve heard many good things about collagen. For one, how it can moisturise and improve skin’s elasticity. This reason alone got this sun dweller even more curious. Truth be told, I like trying different products that can help bring back moisture to my skin. So, after browsing on aisles and aisle of products at one of my wasteland faves that is Watsons, my curious eyes led me to focus on such gold and black packed products that got the word COLLAGEN written on it.

Collagen by Watsons Moisturizing Skin care range, exclusively at 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.
I been trying these Collagen by Watsons products for almost two weeks now and it’s safe to say I’ve picked out my favorite.
Brightening Peeling Cleanser
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.
It contains Mangosteen Peel Extract and Jojoba beads help to gently and effectively softening and removing dead skin and impurities by massaging your face. Skin texture and dullness are improved, leaving your skin softer, smoother, and more radiant.
I was once afraid of the term “peeling”, I always assume that it would literally peel and expose the sensitive layer of my skin – all raw and red! But this notion soon faded after trying peeling products that aren’t literal but instead help remove (therefore “peel”) dead skin. One pump of Collagen by Watsons Brightening Peeling Cleanser managed to remove all the impurities on my top left hand. The gel cleanser with beads when lathered feels soft and gentle. After much lathering, the gel slowly transformed into clumps which begged for a rinse. The after effect made my skin soft like a baby’s and surprisingly moisturized – I say this because scrubbing/peeling usually leave my skin dry.
Revitalizing 10-in-1 Complexion Corrector Cream
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. (Not recommend to spread in circular motion) Pat on face until absorbed.
Conceals imperfections, perfects skin tone, protects your skin from premature aging caused by the harmful environment, moisturizes and nourishes skin, minimizes and refines pores, reduces fine lines, brightens skin, repairs skin and provides long lasting freshness.
Infused with a mineral-rich Caviar Extract to reduce the appearance of fine lines and help improve skin elasticity, brings youthful and luminous glow.
CC creams help conceal imperfection and even correct uneven skin tone. If you’re not one who likes to wear much make up but would want to have that ‘no make-up make-up look’ then wearing a CC cream is the way to do it. Although it’s not my shade (I really wish they had it in my shade), Collagen by Watsons Revitalizing 10-in-1 Complexion Corrector Cream gave good coverage as seen on my left hand. Despite it having a creamy consistency, once it dries, it gives a natural effect – it isn’t dewy nor is it matte. Di ba? It blended really well on my skin no? Literally like second skin, only it’s the better version of it. If you want to achieve that flawless skin, Revitalizing 10-in-1 Complexion Corrector Cream is the way to do it!
Intensive Nourishing and Firming Facial Mask
I was too excited to try the facial mask that I forgot to snap a photo of it!
How to use: Unfold the mask from the pack and apply over your face. Press to remove the bubbles and enjoy 15 minutes of relaxation. Remove the mask from down to up after 15 minutes and massage the remaining essence into skin.
Each piece of mask contains 30ml rich essence to deeply nourish, tighten and soothing the skin that contains skin-friendly, hydrating and soothing Allantoin. Delicate, silky soft, cotton mask sheet fits perfectly to the contours of your face to maximise essence absorption.
The facial mask is soaked in rich essence – this I know for sure as I had to squeeze off some from the mask as it was dripping wet. This is a good issue because I’d rather have soaked mask than an almost dry one (am I right or am I right?!) I like that it greatly covers the entire face (since I have a small face, it created creases on the edges) so I had to lie down for 15 minutes – but I was so relaxed I think I had the mask on for a few minutes longer while I dozed off! My prolong wear of the mask didn’t really effect the moisturizing factor. Upon removal, I still managed to lather the remaining essence on my face – I applied the remaining essence on the pack with a cotton ball. I let it get absorbed a little bit more before rinsing. It was refreshing, revitalizing, like an instant spa for the face.
Q10 Intensive Moisturising and Firming Body Lotion
How to use: After basic skincare, apply adequate amount on the body.
This lightweight, non-greasy, and easily absorbable lotion contains anti-ageing Q10 and nourishing Soy Bean Oil to help moisturise and soothe discomfort caused by dryness.
Out of all the four Collagen by Watsons products, this is my favorite. While I am not a lotion addict, I like applying it on my skin because it helps alleviate dryness. If its good enough, it usually gives me a surge of moisture, leaving my skin soft and moisturized. And Q10 Intensice Moisturizing and Firming Body Lotion indeed is a lotion that’s great for my sensitive and dry skin. I get that velvety, smooth feel upon application and even after a few hours applying it, I can still feel the lotion wrapped on skin, as if protecting it from external factors that can causes dryness and sensitivity. I like it so much, I’m almost done with the bottle!
Overall, Collagen by Watsons products are good when it comes to moisturizing. I didn’t have any breakout nor allergic reaction to them. I highly recommend you start your Collagen love affair by trying the Q10 Intensive Moisturizing and Firming Lotion and work your way to the other Collagen by Watsons products. It does wonders to one’s skin. Definitely dry skin no more!
