Isn’t this a thing of beauty? This emerald bottle, or more accurately, the contents within, has been the secret to my glowing skin lately. Ever since I started using DrGL’s collagen essence diligently twice a day, I have been receiving compliments about my “good skin”.
The name, Collagen Essence, is a misnomer actually, as this product contains Hyaluronic Acid, which occurs naturally in the deeper layers of our skin. Hyaluronic Acid is used in this formula for its perfect affinity with skin and for its amazing ability to hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water.
Here’s Dr Georgia Lee, creator of this “miracle water”, telling us more about it:
1. Why did you create the Collagen Essence?
Dr GL: I love the hydrating effect of Hyaluronic Acid when it is used as a filler for my patients and so decided to create a pure Hyaluronic Acid essence which is micronised so that absorption is assured and the product is locked in where it works best.
2. What are the ingredients in the essence?
Dr GL: Hyaluronic acid
3. Who is it suitable for?
Dr GL: It is suitable for all skin types from oily and acne-prone skin to mature skin although in harsher dry weathers, a second layer of richer moisturiser may be needed.
4. What are some of the results after using the essence?
Dr GL: The skin is immediately plumped up after a few days of continual usage. It glows and is firm from the hydrated skin cells. (absolutely true!)
5.. How much is it retailing for?
DrGL: S$198 at Escentials, 3rd floor, Paragon
