As a beauty blogger I’ve had the opportunity to try skincare lines that cost from a few dollars to over 4 hundred. I’ve found that while it’s exciting to have the opportunity to try out some of the most expensive brands, it’s not what they cost that counts. What counts is quality and how your skin reacts to the product. I’m happy to report that the Vivo Per Lei Collagen Collection has been a delight to use and makes me excited that a few of my readers will be able to win part of the line.
The Collagen Collection contains 4 products that I’ve been using for about 6 weeks. While it’s considered a collection each piece can be purchased separately so if any one of these make you sit up and take notice there’s that option.
There are two eye products in this line so one gets used by me in the daytime and one at night. These are interchangeable of course and can be used in tandem if you want but I’ll give my reasons why I use them separately.
Vivo Per Lei Collagen Booster Eye Serum ($32) (Amazon price, $19.95) is my daytime product. I look for an eye serum during the day because I don’t want my undereye area to have creams on it most days. Applying eye makeup is often the highlight of my mornings and I am always worried that it’ll end up under my eyes. With a serum, especially this Collagen Booster Eye Serum, there’s no fear of that. Instead it’s a cooling touch that absorbs quickly and gives my eyes the boost the name suggests. My eyes feel moisturized while feeling like my fine lines are lessened. It contains Aloe Vera, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Soluble Collagen, Vitamin A, and Hyaluronic Acid (known for its moisturizing properties). I really like that I look brighter and more rested when using this eye serum. Puffiness and dark circles beware!
Vivo Per Lei Collagen Contour Eye Cream ($32) (Amazon price, $18.95) is what I use at night or if I’m home during the day without plans of applying any cosmetic items. It doesn’t interfere with mascara or concealer, I’m just funny that way.
As we age the skin around our eyes becomes particularly more sensitive and thinner. The reason for that is that the natural collagen in our body becomes lessened with time. The Collagen Contour Eye Cream is infused with ingredients to help that breakdown from showing on our eyes. It’s infused with peptides, soluble collagen, shea butter, vitamins and hyaluronic acid.
It’s not a heavy eye cream at all, it’s light yet extremely moisturizing. While I may need to use a richer product occasionally this is an eye cream that I’m enjoying.
Vivo Per Lei Collagen Rejuvenating Cream ($32) (Amazon price, $19.95) is my absolute favorite product in this collection and what I picked when I was told that Vivo Per Lei would do a giveaway. I want everyone to be able to try this lush moisturizer. It feels so heavenly on my skin that I wish I could bathe in it. It’s recommended for men as well as women.
Important to me is that this Collagen Rejuvenating Cream, like the other Vivo Per Lei products, is fragrance-free. That means I only concentrate on the feel of it on my skin as I’m applying as well as the results I’ve seen since using.
My skin is on the dry side. It’s not bone dry but it’s dry and I can see that throughout the day when it sucks in my foundation. Using this moisturizing cream has alleviated that problem. It too has great ingredients like Soluble Collagen, licorice, green tea extracts anti-aging peptides, and encapsulated Caffeine to perk up skin and keep it youthful. If you only can try one product this is the one I highly recommend.
Vivo Per Lei Collagen Rejuvenating Mask ($38) (Amazon price, $17.97) is a once a week mask for me but can be used as often as you like. Beauty Info Zone readers know I’m crazy about facial masks and I am very happy to have this one in my collection.
This is a quick mask to use as it dries in just 10 minutes and then you wash it off with warm water. I love using this prior to getting in the shower since my skin does look rejuvenated with it and feels so soft after. It dries down completely so you won’t really want to have a conversation while it’s on. It doesn’t crack on me but it feels tight. When I step out of the shower, I feel refreshed though and my skin isn’t tight. Of course I’ve been using the Collagen Rejuvenating Cream after so the combination is great for my skin. The jar is huge (100 g) and will last me for months and months. It comes with a little scoop so you don’t have to dig your fingers in.
Buying the collection doesn’t save you money but all the pieces in it are so good for my skin that I’m happy to have them all. If Collagen isn’t your thing like it is mine, there’s also a Retinol Collection that’s especially good for wrinkles and a Vitamin C + Amino Collection (this one includes a cleanser and body cream too).
Vivo Per Lei is a line I want to explore more and one I think BIZ readers would too. There’s something for everyone, men and women, teens and codgers, that will delight. — Marcia
