First use of the Beekman 1802 Collagen Booster

Recently I tried the Beekman 1802 Quarterly box. It is $65 per quarter and one of the most beautiful subscription boxes I have ever received. However it is a brand box which means that everything in it comes from the brand. I personally like that as it gives me a chance to try a multitude of items from the Beekman 1802 brand. The draw back is that the beautiful subscription box is only worth it if I like the items from the box. The next quarterly box goes out in November so I want to try out as many of the products that came in the box as I can before I have another box arriving.

At this point I have liked enough of the products I’ve tried in the box to be fine with receiving the November box but most of the items I tried were more body care than facial skincare. Aside from the sunscreen, this is the first of the facial skincare items I’ve tried. So what is this Collagen Booster with Electric Daisy and peptide firming serum

cute little dropper

Naturally lift and tighten skin with Collagen Booster. This power packed serum is formulated with a fast-acting trio of peptides, electric daisy, and encapsulated CoQ10 bubbles to boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, revealing a firmer, more youthful complexion. Apply 1-2 drops on clean, dry skin right after cleansing as part of your morning routine. Use it alone or with the moisturizer of your choice.

Okay all of that is something I would love to have happen on my face. I could use fine lines and wrinkles to fade away as much as possible and I would love to have firmer more youthful looking skin. While I will break down ingredients after a month of use, and trust me I will be looking into the electric daisies, this is a first use post. Because lets face it if you try it and don’t like it then you aren’t going to wear it long enough to see any results.

serum

First of all, this is a really cute bottle. There is just something about all of the softened rounded edges and the frosted glass of the bottle that is aesthetically appealing to me. The serum looks soft and friendly, glowing yellow behind the frosted glass. The rounded bottles also fit well in the hands without slipping which is nice as well. The hand naturally cups the bottle so it feels more stable. The dropper is nice as it takes the drops I need out without exposing the rest of the product to the air. And the tiny cute little dropper does pull up the correct proportion of product with each squeeze.

I was worried that the dropper (while adorable) was not going to be able to reach the product and that there would be issues as the product level dropped. However the bottom is thick glass and the dropper has a slight angle to it so I think that I may be able to get every last drop of product from the bottle. That will be something i will watch as the product level drops. Because adorable should never interfere with product usage. In skincare pretty is nice but use is what counts.

serum applied

So how was my first use. It was interesting. The serum is clear with a few yellow dots in it and it is somewhat viscus. There is no scent to it so if you are scent sensitive then this is not going to trigger anything. I sniffed it as much as possible and while I got serum on my nose, I still didn’t smell anything.

the serum applied easily and smoothly. I did let it dry down before I applied my moisturizer. This is a serum that you need to follow with a moisturizer. It is not a serum you want to wear alone. It makes the skin slightly sticky. A moisturizer over it takes away the stickiness completely. there is no stickiness poking through. As the brand recommends you either add it to a moisturizer or wear it under a moisturizer, I don’t think the stickiness is a problem. I would have issue if it were something you could wear on it’s own, but it clearly isn’t. Just follow with a moisturizer and there is no issue.

Over all I have to say this was a really good first use test for me. There was no scent that I don’t like, or at all really, it felt good against the skin and at this point I am just left hoping that it performs like it says it will. I will keep my fingers crossed and remain hopefully optimistic for the performance of the Collagen Booster from Beekman 1802.
