Hello my readers, gonna squeeze in a blog post before i go on a two weeks hiatus from my blog! Will be heading to Korea and Taiwan for a short break. Decided to tag along with my Husband for his work trip to Korea and thank God for my last min leave approval. hahaha! I will be posting updates on Instagram and do let me know if there’s any ‘must visit’ place or restaurant in Seoul as it is my first time there (I don’t have time to do research since it is a last min decision).
Few weeks ago, AFC has sent me one of their latest product for review and who will say no to premium supplements for health, beauty and wellness? The beauty supplement that i will review in this post is the AFC Collagen White Beauty, which contains AFC Japan’s latest innovation in collagen technology.
Founded in 1969, AFC Japan is a leading brand in anti-aging science and nutritional research. Backed by a team of reputable and dedicated scientists and research personnel, together with the unwavering dedication towards product efficacy, quality and safety, AFC has innovated many products that are category leaders and are well trusted by millions of customers in Japan and worldwide.
AFC is exclusively managed and distributed by Lifestream Group Pte Ltd, Singapore. Founded in 2003, Lifestream Group brings together the best products for good health, beauty and wellness. Today, Lifestream Group is proud to house two great brands: Lifestream and AFC.
Unveil beautiful skin effortlessly with AFC Japan’s latest innovation in collagen technology, the MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides. Upping the ante on AFC Japan’s award-winning Collagen Beauty, the new formulation produced through a specialised hydrolysis process is scientifically proven to be 1.5 times more effective than regular collagen. Made from marine fish sources with 60 times smaller peptides than regular collagen for easy absorption, the proprietary Japanese formula effectively reduces the natural loss of collagen by delivering intense hydration where the skin needs most. It also boosts cell regeneration to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and open pores.
This key ingredient is now available in two new products – AFC Collagen White Beauty and AFC Collagen Beauty MCP-EX. In Singapore’s fast paced and stressful society, it will never be too early to care for your physical well-being. Stress, insufficient rest and unhealthy diet will lead to early signs of detriment. Without you realising, the skin gradually begins to lose its elasticity and later, sag with the appearance of fine lines. Hence with the new launch, you can take charge (With just 3-6 pill daily) to restore youthful & healthy skin radiance while combating the first signs of ageing as soon as they surface.
Collagen Beauty MCP-EX is a premium collagen supplement with triple revitalising action to rejuvenate your skin from inside out for a new level of hydration, firmness and radiance. Specially formulated with superior nutrients that possess restorative properties, it contains proprietary MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides from Japan; and is enriched with Shark Cartilage Extract and Vitamin C*.
Shark Cartilage extract is a powerful natural moisturiser that hydrates and promotes skin elasticity, providing elastin and collagen to further regenerate skin for a firm and healthy appearance.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is vital for skin radiance and clarity. It protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals and UV rays. It also promotes effective collagen absorption and synthesis
MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides is a 60X smaller premium fish collagen that is odourless and free from animal diseases. It is extracted through a specialised hydrolysis process are clinically proven to be 1.5X more absorbable than regular collagen. This ingredient will help body to replenish & stimulates production of collagen which refines wrinkles, fine lines and open pores.
Collagen Beauty MCP-EX. Collagen Beauty MCP-EX is best recommended as an overall skin vitality booster, addressing dehydration and improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and enlarged pores. It also evens out skin tone and clarity, promotes skin suppleness and radiance.
Living in the tropics, the climate will tends to be hot with the sun showing no mercy! Hence, Protection against harsh UV rays is a major concern for most people. UV exposure will also accelerate photoageing & affect complexion (dark spots!) and sometimes relying on only sunscreen won’t be enough (As we are not using sunscreen the correct way!). Apart from stress, environmental toxins and UV rays, an insufficient supply of collagen in the skin can also cause it to lose its radiance and succumb to dark spots and pigmentation.
Sun damage is a leading cause of dark spots. When our skin suffers UV damage, it produces melanin, which moves upwards to the skin surface and causes the skin to darken. Normally the darkening disappears once regular skin turnover occurs. However, if the damage is severe, skin turnover becomes irregular and causes the dark pigment to remain. These are what we called dark spots.
For a better protection and to fight against free radicals and the effects of stress, environmental toxins and UV rays, the AFC Collagen White Beauty will help to combat the first signs of ageing for skin to reveal a fair beautiful glow from within. The unique formula is fortified with three key potent skin whitening ingredients to fight against free radicals and the effects of stress, environmental toxins and UV rays. It inhibits the formation of melanin and diminishes the appearance of pigmentation and stubborn dark spots, to achieve clearer, brighter skin.
Collagen White Beauty is the latest addition to AFC’s award-winning Collagen series. A unique formula powered with three potent skin whitening ingredients, it is your ammunition against free radicals and the effects of stress and toxins. Most importantly, it replenish your skin’s collagen reserves to restore glow and radiance. Collagen White Beauty is best recommended to reduce the appearance of scars and dark spots, brighten a dull, uneven or sallow appearance and revitalise dehydrated skin. The formula is especially helpful for those who are frequently outdoors and exposed to UV rays.

If you are wondering what’s the hype with Collagen, let me tell you! Collagen is essential for the maintenance of healthy skin, bones, joint and blood vessel. It provides natural structural support to maintain healthy-looking skin. It is the building block of cartilage that supports joint flexibility and cushioning. It supports bone density and stimulates bone formation. It promotes beautiful hair and strong healthy nails. It provides permeability and elasticity to the wall of blood vessels for healthy blood flow in the body.

I was complaining to Dr Lim about my problematic skin (Worsen by the use of a wrong product) and he told me to use as little products as possible on my skin so that it won’t clog easily. This includes ditching my sunblock for the time being. He said that skin pigmentation problem is so much easier to treat as compared to acne (Which is kind of true)! Decided to give it a try these 2 weeks and not use sunblock to see if it makes a difference.
With the Collagen White Beauty, i felt more secured as it contains collagen to help my skin stay smooth & supple skin. Most important, it also inhibited new melanin formation, repair damaged cells, repel free radicals and promote healthy cell turnover. Have not been using sunscreen and consuming the Collagen White Beauty for about 10 days. I observed that my skin is less clogged, more radiant and plump-up. There’s no much visible difference on whitening (As in overall skintone) but i felt that my post acne marks aren’t as brown as before. Not quite sure if it is due to the pills or my Carbon Laser Peel! However, i’m sure both work hand in hand to fade my acne marks! Definitely delighted that my clogged skin issue & post acne pigmentation is getting better! 🙂
