DCS is a Korean skincare label that infuses each product with Jeju’s mineral-rich volcanic sea water to rejuvenate skin and achieve a healthy glow. In line with its cruelty-free business philosophy, all products from DCS are not tested on animals.
Turn back time with NUTRIDERM – The NUTRIDERM range is infused with Korean ginseng berry, which can only be harvested once every four years over a seven-day period, giving rise to its rarity and value. The secret to Korean ginseng berry’s restorative power lies in its high concentration of ginsenosides, which is double the amount as compared to the more popular and frequently used Korean ginseng root.


6) | Dr. Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX |

The result of years of research on dermatological science, Dr. Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX is the “all-in-one gel” that covers eight-steps of your daily skin care routine.. This “all-in-one gel” is a toner, emulsion, beauty essence, eye treatment cream, facial cream, massage cream, facial mask, and makeup base.
The Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX is the premium lifting line of Dr. Ci:Labo’s signature Aqua-Collagen-Gel s, formulated to deliver nourishment and intense moisture without the use of skin-stressing ingredients.
Now the Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX combines the hydration power of its classic moisturiser with additional skin-tightening and firming properties. The formulation is inspired by Ulthera, a popular skin-tightening procedure at aesthetic clinics. It contains a pseudo “fascia” (known as the foundation of skin) made up of 3D collagen, 3D hyaluronic acid, TC triple collagen, hydrolyzed elastin and rye seed extract to create an invisible veil on the skin’s surface to revive depleted functions of the fascia.
In addition, ingredients such as Gold Collagen EX, Marine Pro Collagen and AG3 help to improve skin elasticity and retain moisture.
The product serves as a toner, moisturiser, serum, eye cream, face cream, massage cream, mask and makeup base all at the same time. It is free of fragrance, synthetic colourants, mineral oil and parabens. A floral scent from natural essential oils helps to lift the spirits.

Made from marine fish sources using Japan’s cutting-edge hydrolysis process, its fast absorbing nano-collagen peptides is 60 times smaller than regular collagen. The proprietary Japanese formula reduces the natural loss of collagen by quickly replenishing and stimulating collagen production. It also reduces wrinkles, fine lines and open pores.
This new key ingredient – MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides – is now available in the 90-day beauty supplement, AFC Collagen White Beauty, which features a unique formula fortified with three key potent skin whitening ingredients – Glutathione Yeast Extract, L-Cystine and Vitamin C.
Glutathione works as a potent antioxidant and natural detoxifier to support skin renewal and repair damage within cells, reducing pigmentation and dark spots for a fair, spotless complexion. Together with L-Cystine and Vitamin C, they work synergistically to repel free radicals and promote healthy cell turnover.
AFC Collagen White Beauty is best recommended for the reduction of scars and dark spots, to brighten dull and sallow appearance and plump up dehydrated skin. The product is helpful for those who are frequently outdoors and exposed to UV rays, and promoting clear, fair and radiant skin.

Another item that got me really excited when I was at the event.
I drink collagen on thrice a week and sometimes it really does get awful (the smell esp).
So glad to finally see this in capsules form that will make it so much easier for me; convenient too!
