We all know that Hyaluronic Acid is a must sought after ingredient in skincare because of its moisture-sealing properties, it has the ability to hold up to more than 1000 times its weight in water, it not only helps to pump up and moisturize the skin but is also known to soothe and heal it too. But did you know that Hyaluronic Acid is also a polysaccharide naturally found in our human body, with most of it in our skin tissue. And as we age, its ability to reproduce lessens and hence, all the aging signs which we fear most would start to show. Think wrinkles, saggy skin and yes, the horror list goes on.
So I was really excited when I got my hands on the Hand Chemistry’s Hyaluronic Concentrate from glamogirl.com According to the Hand Chemistry website, their formula contains a complex of five active technologies from marine and plant sources, which repairs dry skin and protects it from the elements, so hands and body are visibly transformed to a softer and more comfortable state thanks to the high moisturising and regenerating effects of a Pseudoalteromonas Algae Complex.
The neck is one of the most neglected areas of the skin when it comes to skincare pampering and yet it also one of the areas of the body that gives away your age. I’ve just celebrated my birthday and knowing that I’m now another step towards the big 40 is making me all jittery. As we age, our collagen production slows down and as a result, the monsters of aging such as wrinkles, sagging and lines start to show on our neck and décolletage.
That is a photo of my neck and décolletage, I guess the more obvious lines are caused from constantly looking down at my gadgets (Mobile, iPad & Laptop etc). And since I can’t turn back the hands of time, the least I could do is to take better care of my neck. So I tried out the NeoStrata Triple Firming Neck Cream.
Here’s my review as promised
I have been taking the pills from the Beauty Radiance set for close to a month already.
If you have not read my introduction on AFC & why collagen supplements will aid you with your anti-aging regime. Do check out my previous BLOG POST here.
In conjunction with their 40th anniversary promos, they have packed the collagen supplement into this limited edition set.
Anyone seen these cute little dolls at SASA or John Little?
The first time I saw them at Jurong Point’s John Little, I couldn’t stop cooing over them.
They are just so adorable!
*lip balm is still not out in Singapore yet, stay tuned for updates from my blog
“I like how handy this is, it’s small and light enough to carry around in handbag.
The mist is really fine so you won’t need to worry about your makeup running or looking like you are perspiring. It’s also versatile as you can use it before or after makeup. Practically just anytime you need a quick moisture fix!
However, it does not seem to provide as much hydration as desired. I think the gel works better for me. Nevertheless, it’s still a pretty decent spray priced at S$18.90″
“I thought that it was interesting that this could be applied over makeup as well. I tried it on my cheeks and it did not mess up my blusher at all. It gives a slight cooling feel.
The texture is light and the gel is very quickly absorbed. After that, my skin felt fresh and moisturized. I applied it on one side of my face only and you could really feel the difference. The untouched cheek felt dry and tight.
Furthermore, it contains 3 types of hyaluronic acid as explained in the above diagram. Plus, it has nano-collagen too! OMG, this one is defintely a keeper. I’ll stock up more, besides, it’s really affordable at S$20.90 only!”
