Placecol has a product to suit most skin types

Placecol Multi Vitamin Day LotionAdvanced Multi Vitamin Day Lotion

They say: A light, effective lotion with a blend of botanical extracts, vitamins and peptides, it also contains Rice Extract, a patented natural anti-ageing active ingredient that increases cellular longevity and stress resistance. says:
I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem: the lotion is really light and sinks into my skin immediately, leaving none of that oil or heaviness that I often find with moisturisers. There is no discernable scent, and the pump-action bottle dispenses just the right amount (maybe I often find moisturisers too heavy because I tend to put too much on?)

Advanced Placecol Multi Vitamin Day Lotion, 50ml. RSP: R295.

Placecol Extreme Repait Night CreamExtreme Repair Night Cream from the Platinum Skin Care Range for Mature Skin

They say: This active multi-hydration cream contains advanced peptides for smoothing and anti-wrinkle results within 28 days. It rebuilds and restructures the skin from the inside out. says:
I am underwhelmed by the jar this product comes in. The shape is pleasing, but the plastic lid just doesn’t do it for me. I know that ultimately it has nothing to do with the effectiveness of a product, but I do like me some pretty packaging and containers – it’s part of the whole experience, I think. Having said that, this dermatologist-tested, non-irritant cream is perfectly lovely. It goes on smoothly and has cool blue granules in it that you can feel as you smooth the cream over your skin, but which disappear as you massage it into your face. There is no mention on the packaging of these blue bits or what they do, but I can only presume they are releasing some extra goodness. Perhaps they are the advanced peptides?

Platinum Extreme Repair Night Cream, 50ml. RSP: R520.

    I have used the Placecol Advanced Multi Vitamin Day Lotion before and find it to be perfect for summer, its not moisturising enough for me in the winter months. I am currently using the Advanced Omega 6 & 9 Serum and put it on under my night cream. The Advanced range is anti – irritant, fragrance and paraben free which is always a bonus in my books.
