This Formula Contains Both Celeb-Loved Collagen And TikTok-Hyped Hyaluronic Acid

The best of both worlds.

When it comes to your skin, it’s so important to give it the right building blocks to allow it to stay strong, bouncy and plump. A gel product is a great way to do so, especially if it has active ingredients that are known to enhance the skin.

One such formula is the new Dr. Lewinn’s Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Plumping Gel, which contains both collagen and hyaluronic acid.

Many celebrities have spoken about the importance of collagen, from Friends actress Jennifer Aniston to Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo. But what is it?

Collagen accounts for 30 per cent of your body’s protein, and is a structural building block for bones, tissues and tendons. As we age, the collagen and elastin fibres thin and loosen, which can make the skin less elastic and prone to wrinkles or sagging.

Then there’s hyaluronic acid, the go-to product of the TikTok beauty influencers. It’s so popular that it has garnered over 112K posts on the platform.

Hyaluronic acid lives naturally in the skin and is a humectant, meaning that it can help the skin retain water, and thus the appearance of plumpness and hydration.

The good news is that skincare brand Dr. LeWinn’s has formulated a new formula designed with both of these plumping, hydrating factors in mind. They’re calling it their most potent anti-ageing formula yet, designed as a non-invasive way to plump the skin.

“This anti-ageing offering contains caviar-like collagen capsules immersed in a formula of superior-grade Hyaluronic Acid—hailed as cosmetic alternative to dermal fillers—and ground-breaking anti-ageing active Neodermyl®, which itself has been touted as the ‘needle-free’ alternative to collagen filler,” they say.

“These two elements combine to not only plump, smooth and hydrate your skin with every application, but also aid to fill and reduce the appearance of lines and reinvigorate dull and tired complexion.”

In the gel you’ll notice pearl-like capsules that are designed to burst as they melt into the skin, releasing the collagen and helping firm the complexion.

According to those who have been using the products for four weeks, 92 per cent of the women said they had improved plumpness and suppleness. It was also seen to help with lines and wrinkles.

How To Apply

If you’re wondering how the Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Plumping Gel fits into your routine, the good news is that it’s easy to add in.

It’s best to apply a small amount twice daily, morning and evening, including the face and neck in your application zones.

You can get your hands on this gel formula at your local Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and leading pharmacies for $74.95.
