I am always on the hunt for good skincare. But then again, who isn’t? Good skin is the ultimate foundation.
So about a month and a half ago, Qlabo reached out to me and I have been trying out two of their products since. Qlabo provides swiss-engineered skincare with products specifically excluding known irritants (a point that got me extremely interested as the amount of products on the market with harsh, sensitising and irritating ingredients are mind-blowing).
INGREDIENTS : AQUA (WATER), ROSA DAMASCENA FLOWER WATER, PROPANEDIOL, NIACINAMIDE, GLYCERIN, METHYL GLUCETH-20, POLYSORBATE 20, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN, CARBOMER, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, CHLORPHENESIN, TREHALOSE, DISODIUM EDTA, SODIUM HYALURONATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, SODIUM BENZOATE.
Here is the description from the Qlabo website:
A multi-dimensional, high-performance moisturizer designed to turn back time for your skin. Collagenerous visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, restores firmness and elasticity, replenishes hydration and soothes inflammation. Meticulously formulated for sensitive skin.
• Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Soothes skin inflammation and visibly reduces redness

INGREDIENTS : AQUA (WATER), DIMETHICONE, POLYACRYLATE-13, PROPANEDIOL, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN, SILYBUM MARIANUM SEED OIL, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, POLYISOBUTENE, GLYCERIN, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, ALLANTOIN, CHLORPHENESIN, TREHALOSE, XANTHAN GUM, POLYSORBATE 20, DISODIUM EDTA, LAMINARIA OCHROLEUCA EXTRACT, METHYLGLUCOSIDE PHOSPHATE, SODIUM CARBOXYMETHYL BETA-GLUCAN, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE, COPPER LYSINATE/PROLINATE, SODIUM BENZOATE.
Usually, there will be some tightness around my cheeks and jaw area in the evening. This is because the skin has lost some of its moisture to the surroundings (as it will, over time) and it does not help that I am stuck in an air conditioned environment the entire day. After using this combo for about a week or so, I did notice that my skin felt more supple and hydrated. I also did not feel the tightness throughout the day – great sign that the skin is retaining its moisture! This is probably attributed to the Eauphoria Complete Moisture Treatment. I like how it is able to impart so much hydration while being lightweight and non-tacky on the skin.
I am fortunate to not have noticeable wrinkles on my skin yet so I am unable to comment on the reduction of wrinkles claim. However, I did notice that my skin became less red and it felt more supple after a while. This could be because the Collagenerous Advanced Youth Rejuvenator has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to soothe skin inflammation. It is also supposed to help restore elasticity to the skin – which I think it does, but I gotta keep using it to affirm this.
**They do have a set for both, at a much cheaper price of USD 62, which you can check out here.
Overall, I do like these products and considering their impressive ingredient list, I do say that the price is definitely worth it. It does not break the bank and yet, the quality is pretty good.
Till next time,
