Product Review : AFC Japan Tsubaki Perfect Beauty

Hohoho, for a really long time, there hasn't been any AFC Japan's product reviews because I was busy testing out this one!

The  AFC Japan Tsubaki Perfect Beauty! If you haven't known already, collagen production decreases at the age of 20. And guess what? I'm 20 this year T___T

Of course, how fast you plummet depends on many factors other than age. Environment, stress, even the time you sleep can affect your collagen production. In Singapore, most of us barely have enough time to sleep. Even when we're studying, we stay up to do late night revisions, burn the midnight oil to complete the mountains of assignments we have. After our studies, we're either nearing 20 or over 20 already. Singapore is super sunny as well and we all know what the UV rays does to our skin.

Just like how we can have Vitamin C supplements, we can have collagen supplements too! As we grow older we all need supplements to boost our health AND beauty. It's why we have skincare too.

The above points are based on my own knowledge, gained from my experiences in the beauty industry. Here're points taken from AFC Japan, as they're the true professionals, they can tell you more in detail!

Collagen and elastin are important structural components in skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our skin. It contributes to approximately 75% of the weight in our skin. The lack of collagen and elastin often leads to various skin concerns:

  1. Dry Skin – Collagen has a unique matrix structure which traps moisture in between spaces. The presence of hyaluronic acid ensures substantial hydration to the skin structure.
  2. Enlarged Pores – When collagen and elastic are depleted, skin loses its support and pores become visible in certain areas.
  3. Sagging Skin – When our skin lacks of collagen and elastin, the skin does not have strong structural support and starts to sag. Thus, skin will start to develop wrinkles and fine lines.
  4. Appearance of Fine Lines – Commonly seen among 30-40s female, especially at the corner of the eyes and mouth as these are the areas which are more prone to dryness.

Of course, this being a review, I'm sure you wouldn't want me to repeat what AFC Japan already has on their website. To know a lot more about the product, please see HERE!

Here's Tsubaki Beauty to aid us with the 10k mg of collagen packed within each bottle! No added colorings or preservatives and it comes in a tasty peach flavor!

The important point to note here is that this should be consumed just before you go to bed. The most important recovery time for our skin is actually between 10pm-2am. For the ultimate best result, I recommend for all of you to take this at that timing if possible and go to bed immediately after.

Comes in a beautiful and feminine handy bottle that you can easily pack into your luggage if you're travelling overseas. In all honesty, my mom wanted to snatch my Tsubaki Beauty from me because her collagen drinks only contained 5k mg of collagen and she was seriously tempted by the 10000mg that you can see on the bottle!

As usual, I take mine chilled. I'm super pleased with the taste of this drink. Ringo once talked about a collagen supplement she took and actually, I tried it too. The taste was like antibiotics and just argh! And if I'm not wrong, it only contained 2.5k mg of collagen. So I was a little hesitant about this product because well, it has 10000 mg of collagen in it. If 2.5k mg tasted bad, how will 10k mg fare?!

Surprisingly, the collagen taste wasn't very dominant and I can sip this with ease like a "snack" before I sleep. This 10000mg is pretty potent I have to say, because I think the difference is pretty obvious.

Eyebags should not be taken into consideration as mine are hereditary! Other than that, can you just see how even my skintone is after regular consumption? It also looks a lot more radiant isn't it! Even though I recommend for you girls/guys to all sleep early, I sleep at like... 3am or so. Yet I do see results.

Do note that I only took this for a duration of 10 days. So if you were to consume this daily for a month, needless to say, your skin will be doing a lot better than mine. From the second month onward, you'll just need to take a bottle on every alternate day.

This little bottle of goodness was also featured in...

The downside about some good stuff however, is the price. A pack of 10 bottles will cost you $53.18 exclusive of GST. However if you do a little maths, one bottle is just $5.50. AND even more honestly, I like to eat good food that well, costs more than that. So I should learn to eat cheaper food and save up for collagen drinks :D

Another good news is that this product's currently on discount! Currently it costs $49.44 exclusive of GST HERE. So it's about $5 per bottle. Stock up now and save on many 50 cents! If I'm not wrong I might have seen this at Watsons before but I'm not sure if they're having the same promotion. If you're a working class, I recommend for you to save up a little and buy this product. After all, it's not just what you apply on your skin, it's what you ingest too that affects your skin. The best part is that you can consume this regardless of your skin type! Less worries for people with sensitive skin~

Once again, there's no standard ratings for this because I truly have no complains other than one star off for pricing as usual. There are good stuff that comes cheap. At the same time, some good stuff just cannot be cheap because you're getting what you pay for. Conclusion? FOUR stars!

Chiharu ❤
