The Natural Collagen Inventia’s Collagen Day Cream comes in a red and white cardboard box on which all the ingredients, their description, and application method are embossed. Once you open the box, you’ll find a mini leaflet that enlists a description of the whole Inventia collection and its featured products. You will also find a small plastic spatula for application instead of using your fingers, whereas the translucent jar that showcases the brand name comes with a lid that closes securely and has the ingredients printed at the bottom.
This cream has a nice, faint smell that doesn’t cause any irritation.
A creamy, light-weight formula that facilitates application.
This cream is suitable for all skin types, very dry and tired skin particularly, as indicated by the brand.
Cleanse your face well with soap and warm water. Then, spread a small amount of cream on different parts of your face, neck, and shoulders and gently dab. Apply it as a base coat on your face every morning.
This Day Cream’s basic feature is that it is made up of 90% collagen and other active ingredients. The said collagen comes from fresh water fish raised in private ponds, where water is monitored and approved by The Mother & Child Institute. This source of collagen guarantees the safety of the product as opposed to other creams that may contain collagen with animal origin such as cattle and pigs. It is also free of any colorants and fragrances that may disrupt the effectiveness of collagen.
We tried out this cream for three weeks on young, normal skin (26 years old), and on older, dry skin (50 years old). What we primarily noticed was that the skin absorbed the cream in a matter of seconds due to its light-weight formula and left no traces on the face. This will really motivate you to better perform your daily routine as in applying foundation and other cosmetics.
As for the instant effectiveness, the Collagen Day Cream moisturizes the skin effectively in a matter of seconds, and you can feel the dryness decrease while the skin turns softer. This effect lasted us all day until the evening, while our previously dry skin was especially scaly and rough.
In terms of durability, after only three weeks of use, the young skin became brighter and less dull. The fine lines between the brows due to forehead frowning also started fading out noticeably, as well as the laugh lines around the mouth.
Moreover, the aging skin that suffers from deeper wrinkles also benefited from this cream. During three weeks only, the face seemed fuller after having been quite saggy. Signs of aging became less apparent as well, and we noticed that makeup application on this type of skin became smoother as the products no longer clumped up at the fine lines.
So as we saw, this cream is quite effective in treating wrinkles, but you’ll need to use it for a longer period of time to notice the results.
This cream retails at 116 USD for 50 ml in Lebanon, a price similar to other collagen-based creams, such as Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream sold at 238 USD but for a 100 ml capacity.
