Sponsored Advertorial in association with SBC Gels
I often get asked how I can love and use so many skincare products, but it’s like food, you wouldn’t eat the same meal everyday so why use the same skincare? Obviously I have lots of Ride or Die products that I have used for years, but sometimes my skin needs a shake up and a wake up. This is why I adore the SBC Skincare range. They literally have something to suit all skin types, ages and concerns.
When I look in the mirror each morning I decide what my skin needs. It may be a change in the weather, my health, my lifestyle or maybe I have been partying too much or am going through a stressful time. Now, I like to think I know my readers quite well, and I know that most of you are skincare addicts like me, but isn’t it great to cherry pic your products and put together a bespoke regime for yourself?
The SBC 4 Piece Super Hydra Collagen Collection is absolutely perfect for this time of year. We have had those lovely long hot days of Summer and our holidays abroad and whilst Summer is not quite over, for some of us more dehydrated skin types or Sun worshippers, the lighter textures can make way for something just a little more nourishing and hydrating. Enter… Collagen… the crème de la crème of skincare…and a range I have used and loved for more years than I have been writing this blog eek!
Included in this incredible SBC 4 Piece Super Hydra Collagen Collection are some amazing supersized hero products and a brand new launch which you will fall in love with! I am just sorry I do not have smelly vision because this collection smells incredible.
Collagen Hydra-Gel Serum 70ml
This Serum is fantastic and I know for a fact so many of you love this too! I am a serum junkie, and yes I think lots of serums are amazing! I also think many are not so great and for such an important part of a skincare routine, I make sure I shout loud for the ones I love. This is a 10% inclusion of Marine Collagen serum we are talking about here and some brands charge double the price for a lesser amount, plus this is a 70ml bottle!! Firstly the packing is sleek and lovely looking. Simple yet effective, this airtight bottle which keeps the product clean, is also see through so you can see that it is filled all the way to the top and also great to keep an eye on when you need to restock. This intensive serum is packed with Marine Collagen which is used in products all over the world because of its anti-ageing benefits. This important ingredient is incredible at plumping and deeply hydrating the skin whilst minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works wonderfully on mature, thinning skin and also on dry or dehydrated skin as it is gentle but effective and gives great results. Applied after cleansing this product lifts and brightens the skin and is an important part in your skincare routine. I adore the scent of this serum which is similar to the other Collagen products in the SBC range.
A cooling white serum that is very easy to apply by gently tapping into the skin, or, if you have an area of dryness or fine lines that you are more concerned with, you can afford to apply a little more as a mask treatment. I have a very dry upper lip area, that has started to wrinkle more, which is due to sun damage, so I like to apply a thicker layer here and let it sink in. Also lovely around the outer laughter lines on the eyes.
Brand New Hydra Collagen Intensive Moisturiser 90ml
This moisturiser feels incredibly luxurious on the skin. It has a texture which, at first glance looks like a lotion but as you dip it you can feel it hold a little where it is a more nourishing and intensive cream. That said, this sinks beautifully into the skin with the heat of the face and neck and melts easily leaving the skin feeling incredibly hydrated and plump. It does contain Shea Butter ( I know some people cannot use that on their skin) and also has that special blend of all important Marine Collagen, Rodacea extract, Glycerin and Vitamin E. Marine Collagen is wonderful at almost slowing down the ageing process, it helps with cell renewal and the structure of the skin and a more hydrated and plump skin is a younger looking skin so ill take it by the bucket load please. Rodacea Extract protects the skin from external aggressors by strengthening its natural barrier. Indigenous to the German Island, Sylt this powerful skincare ingredient attracts and retains much needed moisture which visibly plumps and hydrates the skins surface. This makes this a perfect moisturiser for parched, thirsty, dehydrated or depleted skin types.
I like this moisturiser because it leaves a lovely veil of hydration on the skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day. Now, when you apply this is, you cannot feel anything on your skin if that makes sense, but if you touch your face you can feel the hydration. This sits lovely under make up with no need for a primer as that may roll off but foundation, especially liquid foundation, sits lovely on top. The packaging is completely recyclable and the product feels lovely and cool and even nicer from the fridge. Has the gorgeous SBC Collagen fragrance.
Supersize Collagen Skincare Gel 1000ml
SBC Collagen Gel is amazing! This is 1 litre of Collagen Gel!!! Do you know how many other brands charge a fortune for adding a small amount to their products? I cannot even begin to tell you how many people I have bought this Collagen Gel for! Why? I know it works for my skin, so I know it will work amazingly on them too. Used regularly, my skin is definitely looking firmer, my forehead lines less visible and across my stomach, marks from pregnancy have definitely faded with regular use. I know everybody’s skin is different but personally my results have been outstanding.
I also love to use it on my skin after a day in the sun as it adds hydration, a softness and makes everything look smooth. It is great at dealing with the existing signs of ageing, wonderful on laughter lines around the eyes, it can also be used as a relaxing eye mask by squeezing a generous amount of this gorgeous pink gel onto a cotton pad, fold in half and place under the eyes around the area where you may get dark circles! My dad – in his 70’s – also adds a pump of Arnica to his Collagen and puts under his eyes and this helps him with swollen under eye bags and dark circles. You really can play around, mix and match and find your own unique blend of gels for you. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in all our ligaments and connective tissues and skin and as we get older our Collagen levels significantly decrease, therefore leaving some of us with dry, creapy, ageing, droopy skin. This Marine Collagen gel is in such a huge size that you really can slather it on everywhere, I use this across my stomach, thighs and “bingo wings” and really massage it in well to help give a firming feel. I use it on my face, paying particular attention to my forehead and lip lines. It smooths in so easily, leaves no sticky residue, and allows me to apply make up straight away and get dressed straight after applying to my body. The great thing about these gels is if you already have a body lotion that you absolutely love, then why not add a pump of this to that lotion? Everybody could do with extra Collagen so this is an amazing way of adding it.
Supersize Collagen Bath & Shower Crème 1000ml
As washing and cleaning ourselves is the most repetitive step in our beauty regime, surely we should be using quality ingredients? Why not indulge in some beautiful Marine Collagen to not only cleanse, but treat our delicate skin. I have been a huge fan of this product for many, many years, in-fact you can look back over my blog and find lots of posts featuring this product. It smells absolutely gorgeous thanks to the inclusion of Passion Flower Oil and Kukui Seed Oil. It is also these two highly important ingredient’s, along with soluble Collagen that make this product deeply hydrating, anti-inflammatory and nourishing. On a treatment level it is perfect for aged, mature skin, skin that is dry and needs some love and just to give an all round healthy, soft looking, plumper, smoother look and feel to the skin. On a beautiful bathing experience level, it is suitable for the whole family including children. It only takes 2 pumps under running water in the bath to create an endless luxurious foam, that leaves a delicate scent on the skin.
Fantastic when adding a pump to a shower sponge and used in the shower to wash head to toe, it really lifts away the grime and impurities of the day whilst leaving the skin refreshed and hydrated and not tight and dry. You will feel so soft that you may find you can escape a night without body lotion! I love to add a couple of pumps into the bath for soft bubbles and then blast the shower head in the bath for endless over flowing bubbles! Try it!
You know i am a huge fan of SBC and their products and i know that you are, or soon will be. I love their ethos and ingredients and love that it is a great British brand on our own door step.

This collection is an incredible introduction into the SBC brand or wonderful to stock up on some of your hero products. SBC is a luxurious brand that you CAN afford to use everyday!
