Face Matters Anti-Ageing Collagen Excellent Elixir
Sometimes a product comes along that you can almost feel plumping up your skin from the moment it glides on – and this 'excellent elixir' is definitely one of them. A key factor for us with any anti-ageing product is that you should want to apply it (and then you'll use it regularly and diligently). This ticks that box: the fragrance is absolutely wonderful: geranium, jasmine, mandarin and lemon, in uplifting quantities. Age-defying ingredients include argan oil, vitamin E, camellia, GLA (from borage), evening primrose - and lots of organic silicon, which helps to boost production of collagen and elastin.
It also features high levels of collagen, a fantastic moisturising ingredient – although don’t believe anyone who ever tells you that the skin’s own collagen can be ‘topped up’ topically: it can't.
Face Matters Anti-Ageing Collagen Excellent Elixir is certainly not cheap - but we'd rather invest in a pricy product we're going to use than leave less satisfactory (cheaper) buys languishing on the bathroom shelf.
All it takes is a few drops of this lovely, slip-slide-y formula morning and night, massaged into face and neck and skin appears instantly smoother.
But truly: it's the feel-good factor, not just the look-good factor, which has us hooked...
