With collagen being the most abundant protein in our bodies, and as it is so essential for skin vitality and health, you really start to notice when production slows down (and it starts to slow dramatically after 40), as your skin firmness and elasticity start to decline. Vida Glow, the brand famous for its Marine Collagen, and Beauty Powders which keep us healthy on the inside, has now launched a range of cruelty-free, vegan skincare basics, with Red Algae Marine Collagen, to help replenish the collagen in your skin – and lets face it, mature skin needs all the help it can get! Extracted from seaweed, the the collagen peptides in the skincare range have a low molecular weight, meaning they can be effectively absorbed by your skin. The soluable and hydrolysed collagen in the formulas helps to stimulate the synthesis of collagen in your skin, to help reduce the signs of ageing.
The Vida Glow Skincare range consists of 6 products, all with Marine Collagen to help rejuvenate and renew your skin, which make a simple, and easy to use beauty routine. The Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser is a gorgeous lightweight gel, which removes makeup and impurities without drying your skin. Glycolic Acid helps to detox your skin, whilst Green tea, Aloe Vera and Calendula help to sooth and calm. 95ml RRP $39.95. The Vitamin C Serum is a light silky lotion enriched with a high concentrate of Vitamin C (from Australian Kakadu Plum), to target and help treat fine lines, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone.

I’ve been using the range for the past 4 weeks, and I can really notice the difference (it really started to show after 3 weeks). My skin looks firmer, it has lost its dull ashiness, and it seems to just glow. After a long, dry winter, my lips are finally starting to look hydrated and plump. This is luxe skincare without the super-luxe price tag. I am a huge fan.
