I love getting product recommendations from friends, but I hadn’t heard of Henry Tianus skincare so I decided to do a bit more research on his BioCollagen Ultra Serum. It claims to have the highest and purest grade of organic botanical extracts, multivitamins and advanced cosmeceuticals. Well, as we love natural products at The Amazing Blog this was just all too irresistible for a beauty junkie like me! I’m still on my collagen kick, both internal and external, (see my post on Collagen Shots) so I hoped this will aid my skincare regime as a collagen boasting serum before my day or night cream. I keep reading that our skin starts to age when we reach our mid-20s. So by our 40th birthday, the collagen levels in our skin will have depleted by at least 30%, causing sagging, dull complexion and a permanent sad expression. Somewhat depressing – eh?
This BioCollagen Ultra Serum was named ‘Best Facial Serum’ by Natural Health Magazine, they even said that “its natural collagen-boosting properties are more than worth it!” (so just imagine how excited I was to get stuck into using this serum…) It’s very light in consistency, has a delicate herbal fragrance and penetrates the skin extremely quickly without leaving a greasy residue. And joy of joys, it also lends itself brilliantly to being used in conjunction with any of my given day or night creams. I have to say that generally you get what you pay for and the key ingredients in this serum don’t come cheap: Hexapeptide-11, BioCollagen, Vitamin A, Hyaluronic acid and Panthenol Stabilised Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lycopene, Resveratrol, Pine Bark and Grape Seed. However something I must mention is that a little really does go a long way – I use about the size of pea and it give me full face and neck coverage. Also a top tip: Make sure that you shake the bottle well – it makes a huge difference or you don’t get the full effect from mixing all the good ingredients.
I really like this serum and am looking forward to seeing the results. It is a bit of a ‘gulp’ when you know that you will be paying £99 for 30ml but it's worth the pricetag. Head over to their website to pick up your Ultra Serum!
