Za Perfect Solution Restoring Collagen Cream Review


Hello ladies! I got this sample of Za Perfect Solution Restoring Collagen Cream at my local mall during my recent shopping spree. I have heard that it ‘works miracles’ for dry skin. I decided to give the sample a try and see the ‘miracle’ first hand.

About the Brand:

ZA (pronounced as zi:ei) is a skin care range by Shiseido. It’s a high-end, anti-aging skincare line formulated with a larger concentration of natural ingredients such as plant seed extracts and marine collagen to give your skin a youthful resilience and a silky glow.

Core Ingredients :

  • Vitamin A Plamitate
  • Bio-Hyaluronic acid
  • Marine Elastin
  • Yuzu Seed Extract
  • Apricot Extract
  • Honey Extract
  • APM (Vitamin C derivative)
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium

The complete list of ingredients can be found on their website.

The Science:

  • The cream contains vitamin A plamitate, which is the main anti-ageing agent present in the cream. It is milder on skin than Retinol. Plamitate has exfoliating properties and  produces extra collagen.
  • Another major ingredient is bio-hyaluronic acid. This helps in restoring moisture into the skin making it plump reducing wrinkles.
  • APM (a vitamin C derivative) is another skin restorative ingredient. It is a great anti oxidant which helps in fighting the free radicals and reversing the sun damage.


  • Glossy maroon-pink tub. (medium sized)
  • Spatula to scoop out the product from the tub. (small)

Recommended Skin Type:

Normal to extremely dry skin. If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test, as the product is scented and this may irritate your skin depending on its level of sensitivity.

First Impressions:

Fragrance: Mild Floral scent. Does not irritate the nose.

Texture: Light and silky. Not very greasy.

Color: Off white.

Rate of Absorption: It gets absorbed instantly leaving behind a very light residue. The cream spreads easily.

Effects on My Skin:

  • The tiny smile lines around my mouth were less visible.

  • Scars from pimples have begun to fade.
  • Wrinkles around eyes have begun to fade.

Recommended Time for Usage:

Night time is the best time to use this cream as it has plenty of time to work on your skin. During the day you can apply it like a spot treatment for very dry patches of skin.

Directions for Use:

  • Cleanse face thoroughly.
  • Use toner. (Optional)
  • Apply Za Perfect Solution Restoring Collagen Cream.


  • Excellent in hydration.
  • Visibly reduces lines and wrinkles,
  • Skin obtains a subtle glow and looks clearer.
  • Comes with a spatula.
  • Very lightweight.
  • Absorbs easily.
  • Non greasy.
  • Value for money.


  • Retinol is generally unsafe for pregnant women as it gets absorbed in the blood stream and may harm the baby. Avoid using this product if you are pregnant.
  •  Retinol increases sensitivity towards sun.
  • Retinol may cause thinning of skin.
  • If you have combination skin, it may cause the oily parts to become a little greasier.

Vin’s Verdict:

It’s a great night cream and I love how it is fading my pimple scars. I have very few fine lines around my mouth and at the corner of my eyes, so I can say for sure that it works on fine lines in the beginning stages. I do not know how it works on mature skin.
