Newest beauty finds!

Saturday, November 7, 2015 —


This year my skin is in its WORST state. I don’t know how my skin turned from flawless to A TOTAL MESS! I’m not even kidding when I say I would get frustrated everyday when I see pimples, whiteheads, blackheads and dark spots. So recently I took my skin regimen at it’s pinnacle of seriousness. I researched for products that would make my skin look better. For me, beauty products are just hit or miss. You have to try them to see if it works for you. Sometimes it can work for other people but not for your skin type. So I’m in a phase right now where I just try the best products that people recommend me and see what works for me.

Recently, I received a package from WATSONS. It’s the Collagen line by Watsons Moisturizing Skin care range. 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’m not getting any younger and I have to accept that my skin is going through this maturing phase. :-( So I have to be smart when choosing what’s going to be part of my regimen. But since I’m feeling adventurous lately (I mean I have to take a risk and try out stuff!), I decided to give this Collagen line a try!


First one I tried is the Revitalizing 10-in-1 Complexion Corrector Cream (natural).


 The main benefit of this 10-in-1 Corrector Cream is to conceal imperfections (I have a lot of dark spots due to pricking --- never prick your pimples, people!) so I’m impressed with the coverage it gives me. And it blends well!


I haven’t used it long enough to see if it minimizes my pores but I definitely see the change! My skin looks brighter and fresher!


To see the full effect of a certain product line, I believe that you have to use the same cleanser with whatever product you’re using. So I tried the Brightening Peeling Cleanser. 

9 10

I don’t use this everyday because the peeling might dry my skin. I suggest you use this product once or twice a week.  This cleanser contains Mangosteen Peel Extract and Jojoba beads that help the softening and removing of dead skin and impurities. The effect is that the skin texture and dullness are improved, leaving your skin softer, smoother, and more radiant. (Fun fact : I used this in my knees/elbows too! :P)


Do you believe the power of facial masks? Well you definitely should because if you notice the skin of Koreans/Japanese, it’s like porcelain right? That is because they are obsessed with masks. I wasn’t a believer of this before but when I went to Japan recently, their beauty stores / drug stores are full of different facial masks! So when I got the Intensive Nourishing and Firming Facial Mask from the Collagen by Watsons line, I decided to give it a try. This has an instant effect. After 20 minutes of putting it in my face, got surprised that I had a “glow” when I removed it. My skin felt so soft! Like the brightening peeling cleanser, it’s best to use this product just once or twice a week.


Lastly, since I am obsessed with making my face (Skin) look better, I might as well start caring for my body (Skin) as well. I’m such a beach addict so I’m always under the sun. I don’t like putting sunblock (SO BAD I KNOW!) So my skin always look so dry and dull. Good thing Watsons also sent me their Q10 Intensive Moisturising and Firming Body Lotion. I’m so lazy when it comes to applying lotion but I really need to start prioritizing overall skincare if I want to achieve flawless skin from head to toe. What I like about this lotion is that it’s not greasy and it’s so lightweight! That’s my complain to most lotions because it feels icky and heavy! But not this one. So I’m crossing my fingers that I remember to use this religiously!

If I had to choose the best one out of these 4 products I’ve tried, I have to say it’s the Revitalizing 10-in-1 Complexion Corrector Cream! Love how it covers my imperfections :D Really can’t wait to see the other effects of the said benefits of this CC cream :D The most important thing for me is that it doesn’t make me breakout! So far, so good!

So to all beauty enthusiasts out there, why don’t you head on over to Watsons store or The SM Store Beauty Section and try the Collagen by Watsons line! Let me know what you guys think about these products! :D Let the journey to flawless skin begin!

  1. We actually have the same struggle right now, my skin becomes more darker and dryer maybe because of this past few weeks i am too busy and forgot to take a moment to take care of my skin. Back with your products i wanted to try that one, is that available all Watsons Internationally? or only in Philippines?
