Tried & Tested: Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion

I got a surprise from Rustan’s!


Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion, P3,550.

What It Does: It’s an anti-aging treatment that you use with before your moisturizer. It’s clinically proven to reduce lines and wrinkles, plumps up dehydrated skin, and it’s fast acting for those who want to see results ASAP (it claims to reduce lines in just two hours).

The Key Ingredients: Collagen Support Complex helps the skin absorb and retain water while supporting natural collagen and elastin in your skin, Winged Kelp aims to boost hydration and suppleness, and Cellular Hydrolock to naturally increase cellular water level and relieve dry, irritated skin

Take a look at this image from Murad.  It also claims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in just two hours. I want to time it next time and excited to try it on my undereye area.

Take a look at this image from Murad—looks promising!
