I have been a skincare product enthusiast since I was 16 (now 31). My first moisturiser was from Helena Rubinstein - Hydra Collagenist, which I still buy - I think it’s the only one I buy; the rest of my moisturisers are gifted! Its an absolutely gorgeous product for many reasons: it hydrates skin, reduces the appearance of dehydration and fine lines and contains collagen (doh!-it's in the name) which great for firming and smoothing the skin. Collagen can also act as a healing agent - wait I have proof of it! I used to apply that moisturiser after waxing my upper lip and the redness disappeared after ten minutes. Well this is not how the cream is supposed to work but I always waxed in the morning and I applied the cream afterwards. I am talking in the past tense and this is because I lasered my hairs. I occasionally use the waxing strips -once every 2-3 months as my hair grows faster after giving birth. Enough about this! I am here to tell you that Helena Rubinstein
