Tried & Tested: ULTIMA II ProCollagen range

My current skincare routine is not exciting at all because I’m in a path of using Retinoic Acid as prescribed by the dermatologist. So there’s not much active ingredients that I can include within my #deszellskincarearsenal. However, when you’re in Retinoic Acid journey, sometimes that’s killing me is the dehydration and the texture of the skin that feels worst before it gets better. Especially that I’m currently fasting, the dryness and dehydration are severe.


So when I received this ULTIMA II ProCollagen range, I was welcoming them with open arms. I have such high hopes looking at the ingredients alone. But first thing first, what does this range do? It targets four early signs of ageing (or ageing in that matter) that are wrinkles, lost of elasticity, dullness and roughness.

There are several stellar ingredients list here but nothing too “strong”, for lack of better word to explain, but it’s also effective.

  1. Hydroxyproline is known for its skin-conditioning properties and often found in collagen and elastin. Collagen helps the building block of our skin to keep it looking youthful, smooth and doesn’t collapse.
    Skin will look more elastic and enhanced in terms of texture. It’s also known as a great cell-communicating ingredients, which as the skin age the cells within the skin decrease in its ability to communicate with one another. It’s what you want your anti ageing ingredient to do.
  2. Sodium Hyaluronate which add and maintain hydration and hence enhance the look of the skin to be less dull and rough.
  3. Witch hazel and Willow Bark that smoothen and tighten overall look of the skin.
  4. Horse Chestnut Seed is high in Saponins, Flavonoids and Fatty Oil that alltogether will nourish the skin.

I have with me two products from the range which are ULTIMA II ProCollagen Extrema Face & Neck and ProCollagen Extrema Day Lotion SPF 30 PA+++

The ultimate eye cream splurge & it’s worth it: Menard Embellir

If you ask me what eye cream that worth splurging. The answer would be Menard Embellir Eye Cream. I think Menard is lucky enough that I got to try most of their products when I’m not too picky with ingredients. I tried most of the stuff with a clean slate and no expectation, despite the Embellir line being a very pricey line. The three products from the line that caught my attention are the liquid (a hybrid of hydrating toner and emulsion), extract (basically a serum and yes I need to review this soon) and lastly the eye cream.
