Why Should I Use It?

Collagen is a major component of your skin, playing a role in strengthening skin, as well as in elasticity and hydration. As we age, the body’s production of collagen slows down leading to dryness, dullness, sagging and the formation of wrinkles.

Powered by our proprietary Pause Complex, this lightweight, silky day and night moisturizer instantly absorbs into skin, helping spark the body’s collagen production for firmer-looking skin with improved elasticity, volume, hydration and radiance while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How to Use

Apply two or three pumps to clean skin, day and/or night, alone or under makeup. A slight tingle is normal as your skin adjusts to the active ingredients. Avoid contact with eyes. For external use only.

Note: Not recommended for use with retinol as it may cause sensitivity.

FAQ

We recommend using the Collagen Boosting Moisturizer day and night for optimal results, either alone or layered with one of our Pause serums or Moisture-Lock Ultra Hydrator depending on your specific skin needs.

Just 2-3 pumps are enough for a full-face application. Be sure to rub your hands together after application to ensure any excess product gets absorbed into your hands.  Hydrated hands are always a good thing.

Using 2 pumps twice a day, our 2 fl oz Collagen Boosting Moisturizer should last you up to 2.5 months.

Yes. The Collagen Boosting Moisturizer is highly effective on its own, helping firm, lift and brighten skin while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Yes, we recommend following the Detox Serum application with a moisturizer like our Collagen Boosting Moisturizer, since they were developed to work synergistically with one another to deliver optimal results.

While the Complete Face Serum can be used alone, we do recommend following serum application with the Collagen Boosting Moisturizer for extra hydration and maximum treatment benefits.

Our Pause products were specifically designed to work across most skin types, skin tones and ethnicities.

Because of the importance of collagen for skin elasticity, tone and texture as we age, all Pause products contain our proprietary Pause Complex, designed to help spark the body’s production of collagen and improve skin density and hydration. The Collagen Boosting Moisturizer also includes Kakadu Plum, Progeline - a powerful peptide, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, glycerin, coconut extract, and Avocado Oil to help improve skin elasticity, volume, hydration and radiance.

We do not recommend using the Collagen Boosting Moisturizer with a separate Retinol product as it may cause sensitivity. If you are using a Retinol product, we suggest either alternating use (e.g. Retinol at night, and the Collagen Moisturizer during the day) or using our Moisture-Lock Ultra Hydrator or Complete Face Serum instead depending on your texture and hydration level preference. It’s important to know which ingredients play well together versus those that might cause sensitivity when paired together.  Glycolic acid and retinol are 2 such ingredients that do not play well together.

The tingle is temporary as your skin gets used to the actives, specifically glycolic acid which is a superstar ingredient for exfoliating and promoting cell turnover.  It can also occur based on water type – soft water seems to increase the tingle factor.  If the tingle is too unpleasant, another option would be to try our Moisture Lock Ultra Hydrator which is excellent for sensitive skin in need of hydration and will not cause any type of tingle sensation.

Yes! All Pause products are vegan, Non-GMO, gluten-free, hormone-free, cruelty-free Leaping Bunny certified and made in the USA with Well-Aging® ingredients sourced from around the globe.

Our Collagen Boosting Moisturizer is typically white in color, however, because of the clean preservatives we use, it is possible for color to shift and the product to appear darker and even grayish in color.  This is totally fine and is just part of clean beauty.

    Discoloration of product

    I love the product's efficacy but am curious about something. I started using it when you first launched the company, and the lotion was white. My last two bottles are a tan or a gray color. I have the travel size which is still white. I'm wondering if this is a bad batch or if the product is discoloring for some other reason. Cannot tell if it is still as effective...I think it is. But the color is unappealing. Wondering why. I think the fragrance may have changed a bit, too but I am not sure about that. Thanks for explaining.

    Pause Well-Aging

    Hi Jan, this is one of the tricky things about clean beauty and using different preservatives. The product itself is perfectly fine and still perfectly efficacious, but the color does shift sometimes. In 2023 we will be moving to airless packaging, which should also help with the color shift. X, Pause team

    Feels nice but not very moisturizing

    I like the scent and the feel, but I have to follow it up with a facial oil to really get moisturizing.

    Pause Well-Aging

    so sorry you didn't find our Collagen Boosting Moisturizer to be moisturizing enough. One thing that's very true is that our moisturizer is not heavy and occlusive so you may think its just too lightweight, but it is truly a powerhouse. That said, we introduced our Moisture Lock Ultra Hydrator to add additional moisturizing benefits for people who still want a higher level of hydration. The moistruize lock can be applied on top of the colagen boosting moisturizer for maximum hydration benefits thanks to the combination of hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, glycerin, and ceramides.

    Terrible bottle

    Adore the cream. I’m 53. Keeps my skin feeling hydrated much longer than other products. However- the packaging is maddening. Can’t get at the remaining cream. It’s too expensive to waste. Why these companies have to be like that??? Put it in a jar and I’d buy it again.

    Pause Well-Aging

    Hi Stasia, thanks for your comments. The reason that we never use jars is because it exposes the product to too much air which can quickly degrade the product. Likewise, reaching into a jar introduces various bacteria which is just something we want to avoid, especially in this age of pandemics. That said, we are moving to an airless package in 2023 which will ensure that all of the product is evacuated from the bottle. I hope you can hang in there with us while we make this transition. Again, thanks for your comments. X, Rochelle
