A few weeks ago, Watsons launched a new skincare line called Collagen by Watsons. I was fortunate to be invited, and I was able to go home with a few of these babies so I’ll do a quick review 🙂
COLLAGEN BY WATSONS
Collagen is the building block of the skin’s structure. As we get older, and also because of stress or lifestyle choices, our bodies produce less collagen. Less collagen = droopy skin, fine lines and wrinkles! Bad!
So, we definitely need collagen for plump, well-nourished skin, and if our bodies don’t produce enough, well, Collagen by Watsons is here to help with that.
Collagen by Watsons is a new generation of skincare that contains critical nutrition for your skin. This skincare concept, originally developed in Korea, has been dermatologically-tested and proven to help boost the skin’s natural collagen levels. It is designed with Tri-Collagen Complex, a unique formulation of three (3) collagen molecules working together, penetrating down to deeper layers of the skin. It purifies and regenerates the skin cells and improves elasticity.
Beauty lies in the layers. With the power of Tri-Collagen, Collagen by Watsons stimulates skin regeneration, locks in water for moisture, and nourishes and tightens skin, leaving you with youthful, firm, plump skin!
The products are all MADE IN KOREA.
They are coming out with 4 skincare ranges:
- Nourishing (gold) – For dry, rough and dull skin. The Nourishing range’s collagen boosting system improves the skin’s elasticity to keep it moisturized, firm and supple.
- White Regeneration (white and pink) – For dark spots or uneven skin tone. Do you wish to have fairer skin? White Regeneration is the whitening range made with Penta Lucent system that reduces dark spots and prevents melanin formation. With this range, skin is whiter, fairer and more translucent.
- Skin Renew (blue) – For droopy or saggy skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Reverse the signs of aging with Skin Renew. With its skin rejuvenating program, it repairs and restores skin cells to give firmer and younger looking skin.
- Hydro Balance (Coming soon) – For oily skin. The Hydro Balance range has Smart Water Channel that infuses water deep into the skin, keeping it hydrated. It locks in moisture to keep skin feeling fresh, soft and smooth.

To give you an idea of the prices, here are some I saw at Watson’s, The Podium branch. They are affordable.
So, here’s a quick review of the products that I was able to use during the past few weeks:
Q10 Intensive Moisturizing & Firming Body Lotion (P199, Buy 2 Take 1) – I wasn’t expecting much from a drugstore lotion, but this actually works. After applying it on my skin, it took a few minutes to absorb, but once it’s absorbed, my skin actually felt tighter. Not after prolonged use, mind you, but almost instantly! I first applied some on my right arm and I was comparing it with my left arm with no lotion, and the difference was obvious. The skin on the arm with lotion applied felt firmer. So I have been using it and I’m quite happy with what it does to my skin. I am going to continue using this 🙂
Skin Renew Intensive Serum (P389, P329 for SMAC Member) – Upon applying it, I noticed that it had the slippery feeling of dimethicone, so I checked the ingredients, and it did indeed it have dimethicone. I don’t mind dimethicone and actually like it as a makeup primer, but I limited my use of it to every other day to give my skin time to breathe. When I used it at night before bed, I noticed that the skin on my face felt plumper in the morning. Not swollen. Just more supple. At around P300+, this serum provides relatively the same result as some of other more expensive creams and serums. So if you are not allergic to dimethicone and don’t want to spend too much on a serum, this is something you might want to consider. I am going to continue using it every few days because I actually also like the effect it has on my skin 🙂
Skin Renew Night Treatment Cream – I’ve actually only used this once but so far, I didn’t find anything wrong with it. I think I’m going to use it instead of the serum once in a while.
White Regeneration Toner (P349, P299 for SMAC Member) – this is not the toner I expected. I’m used to watery or astringent (alcohol) toners, but this one was slightly slimy. However, it is absorbed quickly into the skin and it leaves a very smooth, even finish. I haven’t used it enough to talk about the skin whitening effects, but I really like how my skin feels after it’s absorbed. I’m thinking about using it as a makeup base since it’s absorbed so quickly and instantly makes skin very soft and smooth.
White Regeneration Night Cream (P419, P299 for SMAC Member) – I’ve also only used this once, but as I’m writing this, I’m testing it on my arm again, and I really like how it smells. It is easily absorbed into the skin, faster than the Skin Renew Night Treatment Cream. Comparing the two, I feel like the White Regeneration Night Cream provides more moisturizing, while the Skin Renew Night Cream provides more firming.
Almost all the products have a very light, floral scent. The products have their own additional ingredients to help skin, which are too long for me to list here. Just as an example, the firming lotion has Pea Extract and Baobab Tree Fruits Extacts, and the Skin Renew Serum has Marine, Green and Hydrolized Collagen and Nano Tri-Ceramides, etc…
For all the products, they all left my skin feeling firmer, plumper, and more jelly-like, to varying degrees. Wrinkles are filled in and become less visible.
Choose the products that will address the skin issues that you have. The products are also quite affordable, especially with the 40% OFF, so take the chance to try them out while they’re on promo! 🙂
