Collistar Brightening Bust And Decollete Firming Gel

Collistar began in 1983 as the cosmetics division of a leading Italian pharmaceutical company. Since the very beginning, the brand distinguished itself by combining technology and nature at a competitive price. Today, it is present in over 40 countries.

Special Essential White® HP is the result of Collistar's in depth research into the requirements of Asian skin and caters for both the face and the body. It has never crossed my mind to protect the delicate neck and chest area but I am hooked now that I have Brightening Bust and Decollete Firming Gel.

Name: Collistar Brightening Bust and Decollete Firming Gel
Price: RM 185 for 150 ml
Made in: Italy

This gel utilises cyclodextrins and plant extracts to brighten, lift and firm from the first use. The scent is very pleasant and most should not have a problem with it.

I have been fairly diligent in using it, at least once a day, and sometimes, even twice (I would have loved it if the instruction was more specific about the frequency of usage). It has been more than a week since I started and I have already made some headway! The area where I have been applying the gel feels firm and also baby smooth.

Continuous usage is recommended for the effect to last. Use a blob each time (I say use more because you want the slip), and massage the product in until it sinks in completely, which takes a minute or two at most. The quick absorbing texture allows me to dress immediately afterwards. I experience a slight cooling sensation when I smear it on since it is water based and all.

Ladies looking to inhibit changes in skin structure (sagging to be more precise) caused by hormonal changes, weight loss, gravity and the like might want to head down to SaSa for a tube. It could be THE one!

Note that breastfeeding mothers are advised to keep away from this product.

How much it costs? I've been looking for a product for my chin and chest area too :)

Oh, these sounds fantastic! I've been applying face cream and sunscreen on my neck and chest area but I've always felt I need to do more as I get older. I will look if they are avail in the US or relatively easy to find! ;)

This is a very interesting product! I've never tried anything like this before. Do you experience any stinging sensation or even a little pain as it firms the area?

MizzJ said...

What an interesting product! Definitely that area is typically neglected.

Not at all! It feels like applying a gel moisturiser.
