Review: Collagen by Watsons

Collagen—it is a term we hear a lot, especially in the skincare community, but are we familiar with what it is and its benefits to the skin? To be quite honest, I've heard a lot about collagen but I have doubted its benefits and thought that I didn't need it until I discovered Collagen by Watsons.

Let's talk more about collagen. Collagen is actually a protein out body produces which provides strength and structure. It is found in our bones, skin, muscles, and tendons.

According to Dr. Murad (as cited in Murray, 2017), "We lose roughly one percent of our collagen every year starting at age twenty. The more collagen we lose, the more fine lines and wrinkles appear."

This is where collagen-based products come in. Products that contain collagen compensate for the loss we experience from time to time resulting in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Collagen by Watsons is one of the collagen-based collections that caught my eyes due to its unique formula and affordability.

Collagen by Watsons is formulated with tri-collagen to give triple the effectiveness:
  • Green Collagen: Detoxifies & Purifies the skin.
  • Hydrolyzed Collagen: Regenerates Skin Cells.
  • Marine Collagen: Improves Skin Elasticity.

Collagen by Watsons—Moisturizing & Firming Collection


  • A silky-soft creamy texture that easily and deeply penetrates into the skin. It is rich in shea butter and helps moisturize the skin and is clinically proven.

  • Help replenish and retain skin moisture With Hyaluronic Acid and Corn Gluten Amino Acid.

  • Collagen by Watsons Moisturising and Purifying Peeling Cleanser has a gentle texture. It is formulated with pink Jojoba particles that help clean off the aging cuticles, leaving skin soft, smooth, supple, and translucent.

  • Features a cooling roll-on applicator that gently massages the delicate skin around the eye area promoting micro-circulation.

The set I have summed up to Php 1,556 which isn't bad for an entire skincare routine. If you were to get this set, however, I would recommend that you also get their Moistuirisng and Purifying Foam Cleanser (Php 259) since the Peeling Cleanser is an exfoliant and recommended to be used 1-2 times a week only.

My experience with this collection has been great so far. I use all the products every evening starting with the peeling cleanser (once a week), toner, facial cream, then ending it with the eye roll-on.

I love how smooth the peeling cleanser made my skin feel after usage. It is truly an effective exfoliant and it honestly feels much better than facial scrubs which could be too harsh on the skin. Another product I love is the facial cream. I use this every evening and I love how it made my skin look in the morning. My skin is visibly more radiant and not oily at all.

Overall, this collection is something that I would definitely recommend especially to those of you who are looking for an affordable way to achieve radiant and youthful skin.

You can shop for this collection at the nearest Watsons, or at watsons.com.ph
