Tracy Chua reviews anti-aging care series from ASTALIFT

Gravity does things to us - good things and bad things. It grounds us down to Earth so that we don’t float away into space yonder. That’s the good thing. The bad thing is gravity also pulls our skin southward. As we age, we begin to lose elastin and collagen in our skin. This becomes more evident especially on our face - sagging skin, frown lines, marionette marks, age spots, hanging jowls and drooping cheeks.

To combat this, what better place to look than Japan, where ladies look years younger than their actual age? Topping numerous charts in the anti-aging category, ASTALIFT basic and special anti-aging skincare contains 3 main ingredients that are power-packed with antioxidants and collagen.

1. Astaxanthin - Said to be 1,000 times more powerful than CoQ10, this red pigment is one of nature's most powerful antioxidants. Enough said.

2. nano-Lycopene - The red carotenoid pigment found in tomatoes, watermelons and persimmons, Lycopene promotes the natural production of antioxidants in our skin cells, and prolongs the lifespan and capacity of Astaxanthin. Nano-sized molecules at a mere 70 nanometers, one of the world's smallest levels, mean that a higher concentration of Lycopene will be more readily absorbed into our skin.

3. Resveratrol - Through enhancing the plant power of Resveratrol, FUJIFILM is using its proprietary research on mesh collagen and making Resveratrol a highly permeable antioxidant. Mesh collagen is the delicate collagen layer between the epidermis and the dermis that retains our skin’s firmness and elasticity. Resveratrol activates cell proliferation so that epidermal cells can thicken the epidermis and improve skin firmness.


Getting the science out of the way, let's now look, smell and feel the products.

We tried ASTALIFT Anti-Aging 6-Piece Trial Kit (S$68) of Cleansing Gel (12g), Moisture Foam (12g), Jelly Aquarystal (5g), Lotion (20ml), Essence Destiny (5ml) and Cream (5g) for a week. Here are our favorites from the pack.

 

 

 

Moisture Foam

Washing our face in the morning has never been a more pleasurable affair. Whiffs of damask rose filled the bathroom as we let its creamy lather work off the overnight sebum and dirt. In this way, we started our morning ritual refreshed, face smoothed but not tight, and smelling like an elegant English rose garden. At night, we headed off to bed feeling pretty, and at peace that the Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Collagen, Shea Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil were working its magic.

Squeeze 1cm onto wet palms and massage all over face before rinsing off. ASTALIFT Moisture Foam (100g) retails at S$42.


Jelly Aquarysta

One of the star products in this trial pack is ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta. Having never before added a step in between cleansing and toning, this is new to us. The clear red jelly melted away instantly upon application. It felt like applying royal jelly, but so light that in a flash, it disappeared into our skin. Don’t be fooled by its light-as-water texture. It is power packed with 100% nano-sized Ceramide molecules for quick and maximum absorption to replenish lost ceramide and moisture. Also containing nano-Astaxanthin and nano-Lycopene, this pre-lotion jelly made skin feel bouncy and ready to absorb the good things in the later steps of our skincare regime.

Dap a pearl-sized amount and smooth over skin, right after washing and before applying lotion/toner. ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta (40g) retails at S$148. Refills go for S$141.

 

Lotion

Who wouldn’t be attracted by the 3 types of Collagen, nano-Astaxanthin and nano-Lycopene that ASTALIFT has managed to pack into this Lotion? They do all this to gently firm and condition your skin, plus, make your toning ritual feel like a walk in a rose garden.

ASTALIFT Lotion (150ml) retails at S$64. Refills go for S$57.

 

 

 

Essence Destiny

Winner of the MAQUIA Cosmetic of the Year Award in anti-aging, Essence Destiny is a light but potent serum of nano-Astaxanthin, nano-Lycopene, Collagen, Royal Jelly, Elastin and Resveratrol. A little does go a long way in this serum. Two tiny drops were more than enough to coat face and neck with skin-firming, complexion-smoothing nutrition. The serum was quickly absorbed into skin for a non-oily, moisturized, plumped-up feel. We attribute this to the nano-sized molecules in its main ingredients and the three types of hydro-soluble Collagens.

ASTALIFT Essence Destiny (30ml) retails at S$98. Refills go for S$91.

 

 

VERDICT

We love that there is so much science packed into ASTALIFT Anti-Aging Skincare, without the products smelling like a potion of chemicals, or a clinical visit. After just a week’s usage, the fine lines around our jowls appear slightly less pronounced, and our skin also appears to be more supple. We wake up with more luminous skin and less sebum production throughout the day. And like all anti-aging care, we suggest you start early... before it’s too late.
