This was one of my many purchases from my guily pleasure, which is QVC. It was bought in a kit with other products such as the 3 in 1 cleanser, Arnica Gel etc.
This collagen gel is made by a company called SBC. Yes, you can purchase them from QVC but also is a range alot of professional beauty therapists use and beauty cash and carry/beauty stores stock and sell. This isnt something that is readily available on the high street as far as Im aware eg you cant pick it up from Tesco.
SBC have been in the beauty business for over 25 years and stock a wide range of facial body products.They are renowned for their gels, such as arnica, and these products are all easy to use, try to contain natural ingredients where and when possible and better still, SBC are a British brand!
What does it do and how do you use it?
Its a gel that can be placed on the face and the body. Its water based, so light in texture, sinks into the skin easily and is supposed to add moisture to the skin, and overall improve the look and feel of the skin.
It can be used under moistuiser, place a decent amount on the skin as a mask, dab around under the eyes like an eye cream. Another tip to try is they state that the gels are mixable, so you can mix them and tailor make your own gel depending on what effect you want e.g maybe if skin is alittle sore from the sun, mixing aloe vera gel and collagen would be soothing and moisturising.
The benefits of collagen products are well known. Its nice to see this is a gel form, thats available in various sizes from 125ml to a whooping 1ltre. Its affordable, when bought from the right place and in a kit and is to use. I found the smell was clean and fresh and not male or female directed. It does sink in and not sticky and because of the size, I have the 500ml version, I didnt feel I needed to scrimp and could use as much as I liked.All of the sizes it comes in, except one, are in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser that can be locked, so you can measure your amount to use, ensure it doesnt spill and the air doesnt get into it so very hygenic. Once opened it has a 24 month shelf life.
I didnt feel that the gel changed my skin dramatically. I dont suffer issues such as lines and wrinkles, so cant comment on that, but did feel it added moisture to my skin. Whether it was placed on the face or body, I would need to add another more moisturing product on top eg body lotion, as my skin can be super dry.
