MDSUN Collagen Lift

MDSUN Collagen Lift Review, MDSUN, MDSUN Review, Collagen Skincare

As the most common and abundant form of protein in the body, collagen plays an important role as a structural component of skin. Collagen helps skin cells renew and repair themselves while contributing to a soft, smooth and firm appearance to the skin. There are different ways to stimulate collagen production through diet and exercise and avoiding smoking and caffeine. There are also certain procedures like dermal filler injections or LED phototherapy.  As the beauty industry has gained a better understanding of how collagen contributes to healthy skin, a number of collagen boosting products have hit the market. However you can't just increase collagen levels by simply applying collagen directly to the skin so for a product to be effective in this manner, it requires a studied and precise combination of ingredients. MDSUN Collagen Lift was designed with an advanced formulation of proven anti-agers including cell culture extracts, stem cells, peptides and antioxidants to provide a collagen lift.

The Packaging
MDSUN Collagen Lift is packaged in a luxurious, heavyweight jar with a mirror top. A spatula is included to dispense the product hygienically.

How To Use
After cleansing and toning, gently smooth a small amount of Collagen Lift over entire face and neck. Use twice daily.

My Experience
MDSUN Collagen Lift is clear in appearance with a solid gel-like texture that liquefies when applied to the skin. It is fragrance-free with  a cool and watery feel that absorbs almost instantaneously. I've been using this exclusively in the evening for the past three months in a pared down routine with the Sulwhasoo Radiance Energy Mask (reviewed here) as my night cream over it. During this time I haven't been able to get any laser treatments and I have had to scale back on home treatments for the most part due to my neck/arm pain because just washing my face hurts. And my skin has been flourishing!  I'm pretty sure not wearing any makeup and staying out of the sun have also been factors but I have seen a noticeable overall improvement in tone, texture, smoothness and radiance like no other. My husband even commented on the disappearance of my freckles. He actually likes and keeps a watch on them. The boost in brightness and clarity has been my favorite result.

MDSUN Collagen Lift teams collagen with peptides for maximum hydrating and revitalizing effects. Collagen itself is technically a polypeptide but it's molecular size keeps it from effectively penetrating skin and that's where the peptides come in. Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide) has been shown to stimulate new collagen synthesis and promotes hyaluronic acid production in the skin while palmitoyl oligopeptide significantly stimulates human skin collagen production in fibroblasts to slow the degradation of collagen over time. Acetyl hexapeptide-3 is an extension of argireline which works to blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles in the same way as Botox® causing the affected muscle to cease contracting which relaxes and softens wrinkles. Since using this I have seen a visible reduction in fine lines.

I've tried my share of luxury skincare products and I will say that unlike La Mer, MDSUN Collagen Lift is the real deal because it's advanced technology and high quality ingredients deliver on both the experience as well as the results. I'm sure some of you reading this probably gasped at the expensive price tag which is something I also did at first but after using the product for a few months and seeing how it has transformed my skin with minimal effort,  That in itself has been such a luxury for me given my recent health struggles. I can say it is one of the most effective serums I have ever used and I believe that serums may be the most important step in any skincare routine. I have yet to see another single skincare product that combines these proven power house anti-aging ingredients in one and because it capably addresses a multitude  of issues, you can use this in place of a full multi-step routine. The only other thing you would need is a moisturizer and it doesn't have to be anything fancy. MDSUN Collagen Lift is probably not for everyone but if you're looking for that next level skincare product that will give you exceptional overall results, this is worth it. And the cost is still less than cosmetic treatments. I will definitely miss this when I'm finished with it. It has really done wonders. I'm not at the stage where I need such a potent product yet but I am definitely considering this in the future when I get older and my skin needs more help. For what it's worth I've learned from personal experience that skin care is a wise investment of your time and money.

Thanks for the heads up, chingu:) TBH, this lockdown has been good in a sense that I don't have to wear makeup, but I'm also not getting any sleep which kinda sucks and it shows on my skin...sigh...anyhoo, that's great they are selling samples. :)

I didn't know that collagen isn't effective when it is applied directly to the skin and that it has to be well balanced in a formula for it to be effective. I learned something new today. We often hear that collagen is good for our skin but many of us (especially myself) don't really know what that means.
Anyhow, this MDSUN product sounds fascinating. The formula sounds very good. A product that uses synthetic human stem cells among other things, has a very scientific sound to it. The price is quite high but if a product provides people with the results they like, then it makes sense to buy it.
I'm happy to hear you had such a positive experience with this product and found that it works so well on your skin. It seems like a great serum to invest in, a perfect collagen lift.

Hi Rowena, OMG, the packaging of this product is just WOW, I have fallen in love with this delicate luxurious packaging but it's so nice that not only packaging but also the actual product is working effectively on your skin. Yes, the cost is so high but when a product works what it claims then it worth the cost.
Have a great day <3
