This is not another copy and paste review of a skincare product. This is my review of a product I’ve been using for a couple of years. I’ll give you facts and my personal opinion of Kollagen Intensiv.
You probably like to do research online before purchasing a skincare product and find it very helpful to read a review from someone who actually uses it. Everyone has different opinions of everything, and then you have to take into account that people have different bodies and sensitivities.
I have oily skin that is somewhat sensitive. My sense of smell is pretty strong, which makes me always look for products that are fragrance-free or have a very light scent. Kollagen Intensiv is great in that aspect; it absolutely does not irritate my skin and has the softest of fragrances.
What Is Kollagen Intensiv
Kollagen Intensiv is a skin cream that helps boost your natural collagen renewal, encouraging your skin to naturally increase collagen production for a visible reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and more—helping your skin regain a more youthful appearance.
It does all this without parabens or harsh chemicals.
Spoiler alert! – I’m a believer in this product. It helps to keep my skin youthful and radiant looking.
What Is Collagen And Why You Need It
Collagen is a crucial element for skin; it is a protein composed of amino acids. It is found in our connective tissues like bones, joints, or skin. Young people have a lot of it naturally. However, as we get over the age of 30, natural collagen production declines.
Declining amounts of collagen in our skin result in our skin losing elasticity and overall toned appearance. The signs of aging, like wrinkles, start to become more noticeable.
Age is not the only factor in reduced collagen; other factors are:
- UV exposure
- Constantly Eating inflammation-inducing foods i.e., sugar, simple carbs, and processed meat.
The loss of collagen is the leading cause of wrinkles.
We need collagen if we want to keep a more youthful appearance. Kollagen Intensiv has clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by up to 354%, while skin texture was improved by 201%!
How Does Kollagen Intensiv Work?
Kollagen Intensiv works in four main ways to achieve smoother skin.
#1 – Increases Your Natural Collagen Production
As you age, your skin’s natural collagen production begins to decrease, resulting in fine lines, deep wrinkles, thinning skin, age spots, and more. By boosting the skin’s collagen, you can actually reverse these signs of aging.
Kollagen Intensiv encourages your skin to naturally begin producing more collagen, and this has a noticeable, measurable impact on the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and more.
#2 – Boosts Your Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs)
Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) play a crucial role in keeping your skin looking healthy and youthful.
Kollagen Intensiv uses several highly effective NMFs – specifically those known for locking in moisture, preventing evaporation, and offering valuable lubrication on the skin’s surface.
#3 – Reduces Photoaging Caused By Sun Damage
As we age, the cumulative effects of sun damage, unfortunately, begin to show on our skin. We start to see fine lines, dark sunspots, rough texture, and more – these are all signs of photoaging!
Kollagen Intensiv will give you added protection against further sun damage thanks to its various UV-protecting ingredients. An added bonus is that it includes factors that help to repair and rejuvenate skin from any pre-existing sun damage!
#4 – Protects Against Wrinkles Caused By Glycation
Have you ever noticed how rubber left out in the sun hardens and cracks? A rubber garden hose or an old tire, for example, becomes stiff and will easily break when you try to move it. This is glycation in action.
Glycation is a process that is caused by the presence of excess glucose in skin fibers. This excess triggers an internal reaction in which sugar molecules adhere to the collagen and elastin proteins, which generally help keep skin firm and supple.

A Few Ingredients To Mention
You may recognize a few ingredients as ones you’ve heard in commercials or have read about. There are also ingredients that you probably don’t know about as they are unpronounceable to most of us.
SYN®-COLL – A patented peptide that has been proven in clinical trials to improve the appearance of wrinkles by 354% in 84 days of application.
Shea Butter – Known for its softening, smoothing, and conditioning of the skin. It’s an NMF.
Glycerol – It naturally attracts moisture, helping to soften the skin and prevent dryness.
Retinol – An antioxidant that promotes good skin health by neutralizing free radicals while aiding in skin cell rejuvenation. It helps to boost collagen production.
Hyaluronic Acid – Works with collagen to maintain skin’s health, keeping it moisturized and elastic.
Other ingredients and some I can’t pronounce (here) – Oats, Cucumber, Soybean oil, Green Tea Leaf, Hibiscus, and Vitamin C.
More Info And Where To Buy
Kollagen Intensiv is sold by Skinception.com. Their website has a lot more information about the cream with reviews, pictures, and links to studies.
If you purchase from the website, you get their 67-day guarantee and a few bonus gifts, including a $25 gift card for the next purchase on their site. I always buy directly from them. One 2 oz jar is $59.95, and it usually lasts me more than a month.
You can’t find any of their items in stores. We all love to have a product in our hands and read what’s on the box. But, shelf space is expensive, and this is a proven product with an excellent track record. Plus, thanks to Covid, we all have gotten used to researching and buying items online.
Conclusion – My Results
If you have read everything above, you know I really like this product. I’ve been using it for a few years and will continue to use it.
When I first started using Kollagen Intensiv, I was skeptical, but when it felt good going on and did not offend my nose or skin, I decided to use it twice a day as part of my skincare routine.
For me, it has lived up to its claims of:
- 24-hour moisturization
- Anti-aging / wrinkle reduction
- Skin tone evening
- Firmer, more elastic looking skin
I’ve never really had an issue with puffy bags under my eyes, so I can’t claim anything there. I like the light smell, how evenly it spreads, and how quickly it sinks into my skin.
A Side Note
I also use Skinceptions Cold Pressed Aragan Oil and have reviewed it here.
