I have tried some anti-aging creams for the face, and I am well aware (as I’m sure you are, too) of the existence of many products targeted to wrinkly population. But this is the first time I hear of and try an anti-aging product for the body. I kept wondering, if this really necessary? What do you think I found out?

This product is described as:

Pro Collagen Body Cream contains clinically proven Padina Pavonica, an outstanding collagen boosting marine extract farmed in the clear blue seas of Malta. This has been shown to support cell structure and give strength to the epidermis providing amazing anti-ageing results. Created by the leading British spa and skincare brand Elemis, the formulations are designed to dynamically treat the skin with powerful results using a combination of natural active ingredients with cutting edge technology.

What’s good about it

  • The formulation does what it claims: provides a good firming effect of the skin that seems to last long after you stop using the product. If you’ve ever had a baby or lost a lot of weight and have some saggy skin, this cream will help tighten it
  • Provides sufficient moisturizing and nourishing care to dehydrated skin
  • It has a very nice subtle scent that will last all day. If you are on the sensitive side when it comes to perfumes, this will work for you

This is the sample size of the product, which is only 50 ml. This was part of my Cult Beauty goody bag

What’s not so good about it

  • The price is kind of a big deal. At £51 (or $94) for 200 ml (6.75 oz) this is definitely a product you really have to need in order to invest in. Well, I’ve tried other similarly priced body creams, at least this one has more purpose than just a good scent!

A dollop applied to the back of my hand. This would be enough for both hands

After about 10 to 20 seconds the product is fully absorbed into the skin

Although I did notice some changes in some of my post-baby skin, I have to say, I don’t think I have major skin concerns that can be tackled by this cream, so I’m saving what I have left for when I start losing weight. I think this product will be a very good complement to any diet and exercise regime, just to keep the skin looking healthy!
