Glow Radiance Defy Cream

These days Collagen has become a massive hit in the beauty world. Collagen is the main structural protein that keeps the skin tight and elastic. Loss of collagen can cause the skin to lose its definition and youthful appearance. The loss of collagen results in the loss of facial volume, causing crows feet.  It can also create the appearance of a double chin. Collagen gives our skin softness, suppleness and keeps the skin firm and taut.

I was very eager to try collagen myself, hence when I got an opportunity to do an exciting collaboration with Bashara Shop as they offered me to review their Collagen Defy night cream and Collagen tablets, I grabbed the ” too good to be true ” offer immediately.

If you’re looking for a collagen cream that is firming, lifting, and smoothing, then Glow Radiance Defy Cream is the answer. I can’t lead you to the fountain of youth, but a plumping pot comes in quite handy, don’t you think?

Wake up to tighter skin with a facial collagen cream that works while you sleep to address the key signs of aging.

Description
Glow Radiance Defy Cream is designed to provide complete rejuvenation as you rest. Essential fatty acids and shea butter plump and comfort the skin with moisture while retinol deeply cleanses pores to heal and prevent blemishes. Wild yam and soybean sterols improve elasticity, clover flower extract soothes wrinkled skin and various botanicals slough away dead skin cells, revealing a refined, poreless appearance. As you rest, the skin takes on a beautifully youthful tone and texture, allowing you to awake to a renewed complexion.

Turn Back The Clock

Transform your appearance with this high-performing night cream, which nourishes, regenerates and restores the energy levels in your skin cells as you sleep. A perfect blend of luxury and efficacy, this cream is ultra-rich in hydrolyzed collagen and essential fatty acids to plump-up the skin, restore moisture, smooth wrinkles and reveal a flawless complexion.

  • Wrinkles reduced by up to 40%
  • Proven to significantly increase skin suppleness and hydration
  • Contains hydrolyzed collagen, essential fatty acid & Iris Florentina root extract

Application

Every night after cleansing, I massage a thin layer evenly over my face and neck. It’s natural collagen claims to fill, plump, and reduce wrinkles within weeks so skin looks and feels more youthful.

Smell & texture

This cream has a very pleasant floral scent but its smell isn’t overpowering. The texture is very light and water based. The best thing about this cream is that it isn’t greasy at all. It quickly absorbs into your skin and immediately hydrates and softens your skin without feeling sticky on your face.

After Effects

I surely feel that this pot of skin butter hydrated my skin back to health while plumping pores for a youthful glow.

This formula promises to smoothen and strengthen skin by creating collagen bonds to boost elasticity and reduce wrinkles. Thankfully I’m young enough not to have any wrinkles or visible signs of aging yet. But as wise men say that prevention is better than cure so I have decided to use collagen night creams to prevent wrinkles and saggy skin.

Other than that I’ve started noticing that my skin feels elastic and slightly tightened. It also feels much hydrated and moisturized.

The only con would be that this luxurious cream is a bit too pricey. It is priced at AED 450 and you can buy it from an online beauty store called Bashara Shop.

NOTE : Collagen cannot be replaced in the skin through collagen creams. For best results, use it along with the Glow Radiance Collagen tablets.

Glow Radiance Defy tablets

For many years, Japanese women have experienced the youth-promoting effects of collagen supplements.

Forever Young

With Defy tablets, youthful looks are as easy as taking a pill. Enriched with a high concentration of nourishing ingredients and natural antioxidants, Defy acts fast to hydrate skin cells and restore moisture. It works from the inside out to reduce and prevent wrinkles, and also improves skin suppleness too. Pop two of these easy-to-swallow tablets at bedtime, and wake up to a fresh-faced glow.

  • Reduces wrinkles and increases skin suppleness
  • Contains hydrolyzed collagen, high amino acid profile, hyaluronic acid and grape seed extract

Common benefits of collagen supplements

  1. Improved skin texture and firmness. Also an average 13% reduction in wrinkles.
  2. Reduced appearance of cellulite
  3. New hair and nail growth improve in quality and strength after approx 3 months
  4. Improved circulation

 

How to Use

  • Consume two tablets daily at night, followed by a full glass of water.

If you have trouble swallowing chunky tablets than opt for the powder instead. I have a fear of huge tablets, hence I chose not to take these tablets myself.

I decided to try these tablets on my mother instead to notice the visible difference.

She has been taking these tablets regularly at night and is about to finish a month’s course.

Noticeable changes like reduction in wrinkles, hair growth, and stronger nails can only be seen after 3 months use. But after a month she feels that her skin feels a bit firmer and hydrated. Her complexion also looks brighter. These changes are enough for her to continue using Glow Radiance Defy tablets or powder this time.

Glow Radiance Hydra Cream

This miracle cream offers instant comfort for the dehydrated skin. Hence it’s perfect for irritated and sensitive skin. It moisturises and softens the skin & also helps reduce redness. With regular application,  it can assist in healing stressed skin.

Application

Every morning after washing my face, I use this cream as a moisturizer. A small quantity goes a long way.

Smell & texture

The smell of this cream is very enchanting. This is very similar to defy cream in texture. But I feel the texture of this one is light and airy than defy. Like defy, hydra too is water based cream and quickly gets absorbed into your skin. It is non-greasy but has a very strong staying power.

Benefits
• provides skin-softening effects
• heals dehydrated and stressed skin.
Contains extracts of liquorice, mandarin and white lily, vitamin C, and camellia oil.

 

Results

After using this cream daily for a month, I can say that it delivers what it promises. It has definitely worked well on my skin. Since I have a combination skin with cheeks being dry, I often suffer from redness and flakiness but after using this cream for a month, I have noticed a visible reduction in redness and thankfully there is no flakiness. I also use this cream as a primer under my base and the results are great.

My Verdict

This luxurious cream is a perfect moisturiser for acne prone & dehydrated skin. Having said that, it has its share of cons too.

Firstly it comes in a jar, which I find quite unhygienic. Secondly, it is priced at AED 250 which is quite expensive. Why would anyone spend so much on a moisturizer when they can buy the dupes at a much cheaper price from drugstores.

Would I be buying this myself?  No. Although I love everything about this product but the price is a bummer.
