Review - Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX

For these couple of years, I have been in love with thick creamy face moisturizer (I have dry combination skin NOW... I know.. I have been mentioned it a lot in my past reviews.. I just wanna keep you all update on my skin conditions - if any of you are wondering~ lolx), because gel moisturizer just don't cut it for me anymore.

I got this Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX in one of the Watsons Goodie bags I received a few months back and it said that this Enrich Lift EX is suitable for dry skin and it will helps to replenish collagen and moisture to our aging skin. Sound pretty good right?  


I know that I have mentioned many times that I finished up a jar of moisturizer around 6 weeks ... but this time round, I finished this Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX in 3 weeks!! OMYGOODNESS!!! That was pretty fast~ (I used a lot of this as compare to other creamy moisturizer ..  about twice the amount)...


Here's a pic of the amount empty jar ~ 
Next time, have to remind myself to take pic of the product before I start using it!

The gel is pretty moist


Product Description

NEW-IMPROVED Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX is an Aqua-Collagen-Gel exclusively for the care of sagging skin that tightens skin affected by dryness and lack of firmness with age, leaving skin firm and dramatically lifted. 


“Sagging” makes a person appear older.  Its causes are varied and include the loss of moisture and elasticity due to aging, reduced metabolism, poor circulation, lack of nutrition and oxygen to the skin, and the effects of gravity.  Dr. Ci:Labo, which has conducted years of research based on dermatological science, focused on these multiple causes.  We have developed and continued our pursuit of a single anti-aging care product that fulfills the desire for skin with “firmness”, “tightening”, and “hydration”.

The newly added [3D Fascia Band] was inspired by Ulthera, a skin-tightening therapy used at the clinic, and is an original Dr. Ci:Labo ingredient developed with a focus on the work of the “fascia”, the foundation of the skin and the source of sagging.  The pseudo fascia [3D Fascia Band], which has a three dimensional structure combining “3D collagen”, “3D hyaluronic acid”, “TC triple collagen”, utilized for the first time in Japan, “hydrolyzed elastin”, and “rye seed extract” creates an invisible veil on the surface of the skin, reviving the depleted functions of the fascia, while the use of carefully selected ingredients that firm the skin from the inside leave skin dramatically lifted.

In addition, this product utilizes “Multi-Faceted Omni-Directional Care” with our original ingredient “Gold Collagen EX”, developed and advanced using the latest nanotechnology, “Marine Pro Collagen®”, with high water retention capabilities, “AG3”, which addresses “glycation” that has a negative impact on the elasticity of the skin in three stages, and 2 types of lymph care ingredients.  Beauty ingredients that leave skin youthful have been carefully selected and used, maintaining smooth, firm skin by enhancing firmness and the density of elasticity inside the skin.

A multifunctional moisturizing gel that acts as [toner], [moisturizer], [serum], [eye cream], [cream], [massage cream], [mask], and [makeup base] while also being fragrance-free (made with natural essential oils), free of synthetic colorants, mineral oil-free, and paraben-free.  

Thoroughly penetrates and tightens the skin with a non-sticky texture.  A floral scent and finish that lifts the spirits.

To deliver necessary ingredients along with plenty of water to the skin, without incorporating ingredients that stress the skin…  The development of Aqua Collagen Gel began with this desire.

Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX is rich in carefully selected ingredients while being free of four major irritants fragrance, colouring, mineral oil, paraben.  

It is safe to use as part of your daily anti-aging routine and to combat dryness.


Ingredients list of  Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX

This Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX feel pretty moist and feel quite gelish without the stickiness. It's light but does feel a little oily when apply on the skin.

A light layer is good enough for day time  - quite hydrating
But I do need a thicker layer of this gel at night because it start to feel a little tight after about 30-60 mins (I have dry and aging skin ...so a thicker layer to keep my skin from feeling dehydrated - kinda like sleeping mask type of feeling)

The gel does feel oily and have a glossy sheen on the skin.. but once it absorbed it doesn't look too oily. But when you touch your skin, it does feels a little oily. (If you have dry skin, it's not an issue... as for oily skin, I suggest you use a small amount first to test out how much you need for your skin)



Doesn't cause any skin irritation and doesn't cause any break-out on my skin too.
The gel feels quite nice and soothing on my skin (but I still prefer a creamy type of moisturizer)
After using the  Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX for about a week, I can see that my skin look more tight (the cheek areas doesn't look saggy)

The Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX have a strong gelish (not the nail polish type of smell.. more like the skincare type of gelish scent) with a hint of citrusy scent ...  I don't really like the scent, but I don't mine it (since it will goes away like about 30seconds or so).

I like to apply a thick layer of the Enrich Lift Ex like a sleeping mask, and this keep my skin hydrated thru-out the night and so far I didn't experience any flaky skin... so this is a plus for me ^_^
