First Aid Beauty have launched the new Ultra Repair Firming Collagen Cream (£38).  Inspired by consumers seeking out age-prevention treatments and products earlier than ever, this hydrating & firming cream was created for all ages, as skin starts to lose collagen and also the ability to produce collagen at age of 25.  While topical collagen does not penetrate the skin, the cream is formulated with a cocktail of skin-loving ingredients to aid in the overall texture and aid the production of collagen. These include collagen, peptides, niacinamide and colloidal oatmeal.  For dry skin, this cream can be used morning and evening, but for oilier skins, this is the ideal night cream.  Available now from asos, lookfantastic and feelunique.
