The Aqua-Collagen Gel by Dr. Ci: Labo is definetly one of the best products that I have ever used! Here is some information about how the company was started from the cilabousa.com website:
“Dr.Ci:Labo” had it’s roots in Japan in 1998 with the observations of Yoshinori Shirono, a medical doctor specializing in cosmetology.Patients came to him everyday seeking advice for their skin troubles - discoloration, wrinkles, acne, rough skin, dry skin, and eczema. Dr. Shirono asked himself…
“Why is there no end to these skin problems?”
“Are there no treatments available to help these people?”
“Are there any skincare lines, that are simple, natural, safe,but effective?”
The doctor became frustrated with the lack of the skincare products that he could recommend with confidence. Such products did not exist. Dr. Shirono and his colleagues filled this void and created skincare products to best meet their patient’s needs, focusing on the removal of all ingredients harmful to the skin and keeping only those beneficial to it. The Dr. Ci:Labo skincare line was born with this philosophy of developing only safe and highly effective skincare products.
It goes on to say how Dr. Shirono is a dermatoligical laser specialist in Japan. He is also the director of the Shirono clinic with over a decade of experience in dermatology and dermatological laser surgery.
The Aqua-Collagen Gel is really a gel and not a creme. They made two different versions of the gel, the regular Aqua-Collagen Gel and the Aqua-Collagen Gel Super Moisture. The Super Moisture version is better for older people or people with drier skin. But if you have oily skin that has many blemishes, this wouldn't be the product for you.
After the first day, my skin was moisturized, but after a week of use, it became radiant and glowing! It was amazing how well this product works! It is fragrance-free and the texture of the gel is about medium thickness. I like to use it with another cleanser made by Dr. Ci: Labo.
This product is excellent, I will give it a 9.5 out of 10!!
