Product Review: Cosmo Skin Collagen Hand and Body Cream

Sunday, September 22, 2013

     Happy Sunday to all despite the gloomy weather outside. Hope everyone is safe so stay indoors and relax while reading your favorite blogs :) Anyhoo, here's a review of another promising skin care product that I've been using for three weeks now. If you're the type who likes to see fast results then read the whole review so that you'll understand why I'm starting to like it even though I enumerated three negative things about this so called hand and body cream. Yes, it's a cream form of lotion. I presume what you have in mind now is the cons of using this product. In my honest opinion, cream based lotion is a no no especially in our humid weather, right? But there's another way where you can still use this type of lotion and see results immediately. 

     Have you heard of COSMO Skin? If not, click HERE and HERE so that you'll have the idea of what this brand has to offer. I've known this brand some four years ago and tried their soap more than once. If I've been blogging during that time, it's a sure thing that I'll be raving it over and over again. I've also tried their Grape Seed Extract supplement and I can say that it's a better alternative to Vitamin C because it has more anti-oxidant properties than Vitamin C alone.

     So lets go back to star of this review! At first I have a love-hate relationship with the product but after a week it's all L-O-V-E! Now I'm telling you to click CONTINUE and enjoy reading!  
Cosmo Skin Advance Whitening and Nourishing Collagen Hand and Body Cream
Advanced Whitening and Nourishing Collagen specially developed for the needs of Asian Skin.
Formulated with Advanced Skin Whitening Technology for extra fair and radiant glow.
Its Marine Collagen, Arbutin and Vitamin C have 50 times anti-aging and whitening power.
     Cosmo Skin Collagen Hand and Body Cream is a unique cream based lotion that is ideal for use in the hands and the body. It has collagen, Alpha Arbutin and Vitamin C that helps keep skin glowing, healthy and moisturized.

     See how thick the texture of this cream based lotion is? It's very hard to spread at  first but once you've applied it on your skin, it will glide smoothly. Just exert a little effort but do not over rub it.

  • A little goes a long way.
  • Hypoallergenic and Dermatologist tested.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the bottle.
What I don't like:
  • Doesn't have spf.
  • Since it has thick consistency, it takes time to be absorbed by the skin.
  • If used during daytime, I find it sticky and heavy on my skin.
Will I repurchase? Yes! 

     I give this lotion a 4.75/5 rating. This is my first time using hand and body cream all over my body. I was losing hope during my first three days of using the product because I find it heavy on the skin and the thick consistency gave me a hard time spreading the cream on my legs and arms. But after a week of using the product, I decided to use it every night and lather the cream right after taking a bath. I find this ritual more effective and effortless. If applied during day time, I find the product sticky and heavy on skin. BUT nonetheless, it's VERY EFFECTIVE!

     Have you tried Cosmo Skin products? Share your thoughts and have a great day ahead!

Good Times!~


  1. Cosmo Skin is upgrading!

    Siguro nga pang night time lang ito because of the thickness and lack of spf. Happy to know that it worked on you.

  2. Whoa it lightened your insect bites? I've been on a search for products like this one! Will try it out! Thanks sis!


  3. P149 is a good deal for a whitening product plus it smells just right too.

  4. @Rae A.- Yup! DAmi na nila skin care products. Yes, pang night lang talaga to :)

    @Almari- yes :) ang bilis talaga.

    @Franc RAmon- yep, affordable and effective.

  5. Uy nice, it has marine collagen and arbutin. Will check this product out nga next time I go to Watson's. :)

  6. Haven't tried this one yet but I bet it's good. I just don't want its thick consistency. but will try this next time! :)

  7. Would love to try this one. Pero pang gabi lang sya for me cause super pawisin ako. :p

    XO, Mish @ LBD and Onesies

  8. sounds promising but probably not for me, i use sunblock pa kasi so this would be too much/too heavy on my face na :(

  9. i guess i like to use this lotion, tignan ko if effective din sa skin type ko :D

  10. @Czjai Reyes-Ocampo- yup, kaya ganda ng benefit sa skin :) check it out sis ha.

    @itsmefati- that's the only downside but you can make it work pa din.

    @Mish R.- hello, yup try this and yes mas advisable sa gabi.

    @Angel Feliciano- yup dear, mas magiging heavy syo to.

    @Leilani Gamboa- try one na and let me know.

  11. Ooooh. An affordable whitening product :)

  12. @Sheela Marie Castillo- affordable and effective dear ^^

  13. I suggest you have a look at products made from the Anti-Aging Collagen Cream. It contains ingredients to act as anti wrinkle and anti aging cream, at the same time stimulates skin regeneration and replenish daily moisture loss. Meriance is rich in Amino Acids and minerals, stimulating skin rejuvenation with the effect of a smooth, soft and healthy skin.

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for the recommendation :)

  14. Thanks for the review! I was actually thinking of buying one, but after reading that it has a thick consistency it actually discouraged me because I've had bad experiences using thick creams

  15. Your review was indeed very helpful. I didn't know that Cosmo has already come up with a body cream. I hope it works on me as it did for you. Just purchased a bottle of this today and I will only apply it at night as you said that it is very thick and hard to spread...


  16. another knowledge..thanks for sharing....parang gusto ko sya itry gamitin..


Thank you for visiting my blog!~ I would love to hear your thoughts :)
Your comments are always welcome and appreciated :)

Good Times!~
