FIRST OF ALL,
Happy Chinese New Year to my dear WordPress community!
I was thinking about the fact that I have not been doing any skincare product review for far too long… So I went online to search for that one product that I have been itching to try, and went ahead to purchase it.
My friends, I present to you: ELIZAVECCA’S GREEN COLLAGEN JELLY PACK!
I honestly thought this will be expensive. With all the hard work in extracting the pig collagen and mixing it in (yes you read it right!), it must have costed quite a bit.
Even on reliable sites like Koreadepart, it costs around the same.
Again, be careful not to buy fakes!!
WHAT IT DOES:
It gives you your youth back! At least thats what collagen has been purported to do. Honestly, just the fact that consuming pig/ chicken skin gives collagen gives me doubts. So the idea of applying collagen onto the face does not really seem helpful to me.
I think it serves as the regular sleeping pack with an added benefit: collagen to stimulate the skin’s regenerative ability.
It is a very novel product that certainly got me very interested! Unsurprisingly, I am not the only one. Legions of beauty fanatics actually rave over this controversial product
– 50,000 mg of collagen peptide
– Bean fermentation extract
– Macadamia seed oil
– Cacao seed extract
It does not contain parabens/mineral oil/ethanol.
Anybody who had used this would tell you that the application is really one of a kind. The product is in a jelly form which literally looks like pig fats, except that it does not smell like one.
No matter how much I try to sniff it, it just smells like peach jello. I don’t know if it makes sense but jello has a scent to me! I’m thankful that it doesn’t have an unpleasant smell.
It looks like a broken pudding when mixed but fret not! It is just the collagen giving it that consistency.
Here’s a better idea of how it looks like:
I do not think that it is necessary to mix it, but you may do so in the name of fun.
Mixing it around causes the texture to break up. However if you leave it to sit, it takes about 15 seconds to return to its original unbroken form. This is so interesting! I really wonder what makes it work this way…
You might worry about how to apply it….
Fret not, it melts like a dream…
You may use half the size I use. I took a lot of it for illustrative purposes.
So, take a small glob and smooth it onto your skin. You will find that it sits on your skin as jelly first and spreads easily.
It absorbs pretty well into the skin considering its texture. But I suppose it is because it only becomes a jelly texture when disturbed. If you actually just put a glob on your skin, it will slump into a flatter texture.
Does that make any sense? hahahaha!
Till today I have only used this twice with a week between them. Both times I used it in the day so I used a smaller amount. It does leaves skin soft and bouncy! I have not really used it enough to note its age-defying effect, but moisturizing and skin elasticity wise, it managed to achieve a desirable enough effect!
Overall, I would give this a 7 out of 10! I gave it extra points for its novelty. Effect wise, it serves at best to be the average sleeping pack you can get outside!
I do find myself reaching out for this still because it is the only anti-aging product I have at the moment ;D
It is important to start anti-aging care right now in your early twenties because that is when your skin starts to slowly lose its regenerative powers.
Think of it as an engine. No doubt that over time, the engine’s performance will dwindle. However, proper maintenance and care in the early stages will keep it performing longer at its peak.
After all, you do not wait for an engine to show signs of breaking down before giving it proper maintenance! By then it would have been too late!
Hope you guys enjoy this post! I myself enjoyed every bit of applying the product hahaha!
If you have tried this product, do tell me what you think of it in the comments! 🙂
