DrGL’s Moisturiser Collagen Boost Is The Skin Firmer In A Jar That Makes Sense
With sea buckthorn oil, algae, jojoba and three different hyaluronic acids, this is basically a time travel machine for your skin. In collaboration with DrGL.| May 23, 2018
If there is one skincare ingredient we swear by, it’s hyaluronic acid. Hydration is the first step to good skin and the straightforward, no-nonsense way to it? Hyaluronic acid. When you add in other essentials like vitamins – yas – and antioxidants – double yas – into the mix, you have yourself a winner to have and to hold forever.
Now, meet the Moisturiser Collagen Boost by DrGL, founded by Singapore’s own beauty maestro Dr. Georgia Lee.
You see, there’s hyaluronic acid, and then there’s DrGL’s hyaluronic acid in moisturiser that works on three levels. Literally. The larger hyaluronic acid molecules help to retain moisture on the surface, the smaller ones go to the middle of your skin to amp up moisture, thus plumping your skin from within. The teeniest, tiniest molecules go deep, restoring your skin’s moisture reservoir and triggering collagen production.
It all sounds well and good at this point, but the party doesn’t end there.
For starters, the moisturiser has sea buckthorn oil, which on its own already has eight vitamins, 20 minerals and four omega oils that repair and soothe the skin. Jojoba and algae extract add antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins A, B, C and E to the menu that work to protect your skin from free radicles and fade fine lines over time.
Simply put, it’s a time travel machine for your skin in a sleek green jar. Many collagen products out there tend to involve topical collagen, which makes little sense. DrGL’s works to stimulate your skin’s collagen factory instead. That makes sense.
On the skin, the Moisturiser Collagen Boost feels soft and smooth, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. You know instantly that it is rich and chockfull of the good stuff, but it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky at all. Leaves a light, dewy finish, too. It doesn’t have a scent, which is great for sensitive skin – and nose – types. (We like using the rounded end of the spatula to work the product into the skin – and get a massage along the way.)
After pairing it with the DrGL Collagen Essence for three weeks – three rather long, sleepless weeks, might we add – our skin actually looked firmer and bouncier. Like a corset, but without the tautness. The sea buckthorn and slew of vitamins within were life buoys on dull, irritated skin days as well. An all-encompassing skin boost that makes sense.
DrGL Moisturiser Collagen Boost comes in a set of four is available on DrGL.com. From now until the end of June, you’ll get a complimentary DrGL Collagen Essence (10ml) with every purchase of the Collagen Boost. Sound good?
