Texture and Feel
The minute I put it on my skin, I knew I was going to like this product. It felt buttery rich and glided on so smoothly. My skin instantly felt much more hydrated. Although it’s pricey, it should last through the winter months. I applied it all over my face and neck while avoiding the eye area. It was somewhat greasy and very creamy, but not overly so. I need a little of that in the winter to lock in the moisture. When it was absorbed, it left a subtle, soft glow.
The fragrance is light and contains a blend of natural, stress-relieving notes to promote restful sleep.
The Genius Sleeping Collagen didn’t disappoint. The next morning my skin looked dewy, plump, and some of the dry patches were undetectable. Additionally, the tight dryness was relieved. If it does some anti-aging, I’m all for that. This product is just what I needed for my dry, mature skin. It could easily be a new part of my changing nighttime skincare routine this winter.
Some of the other good moisturizing ingredients included are active vegan plant collagen as the first ingredient, water, ceramides, glycerin, and dimethicone,
