Top tips: Decleor Prolagene Gel


Prolagene Gel is an iconic formula that I have used professionally and personally for over 30 years and we have shared the secret on QVC for over 20 years.

It’s a quirky, misunderstood product that unless informed, you would overlook, as the name means nothing and gives no hints as to its benefits.

In fact it wasn’t made for customers originally and was a salon-only formula that therapists used from top to toe for its specific qualities – for best results apply AM and PM under any existing products but don’t mix with strong glycolic or peeling products.

You can also cocktail and mix into other face and body products to increase their benefits and use when you are looking for the following results.

  • Increased firming and lifting all over the face and neck.
  • Massaged into specific facial and expression lines for a more softened look.
  • A sculpted effect on the tops of arms, hips and tummy.
  • Tightening effect  around the bust.
  • For visible anti-ageing results around eyes.
  • An improvement in the look of marks caused by spots.
  • Improvement in the look of marks caused by trauma or after operations (once the wound is clean and dry and you have been advised by your Nurse or Dr that you no longer need medical products and it’s safe to apply over the counter products).
  • Improved skin quality for guys especially if you are getting problematic skin after shaving, use prolagene as an aftershave balm or if keeping stubble it can be easily massaged through as it’s a gel.
  • Men and women looking for a smoother skin texture. My top tip is also to avoid sun and always wear a high SPF when trying to improve quality of skin as the sun causes skin to thicken and darken.
  • Increased anti-ageing effects for the hands.
  • Sensitive skin areas or skin on face & body that is in poor condition.
  • To help skin that’s gone downhill after illness.
  • Fab through pregnancy use all the way through and after mixed with body lotion and oils on areas that you are worried about marking and stretching. Apply from collar bone to knees front and back!
  • Anyone who doesn’t like creams or oils use as a moisturiser with a light gel matt finish.

Enjoy your results with Prolagene Gel, and don’t forget to check out the entire Decleor Prolagene range for more beauty inspiration!

    Hi Alison I would love to win the huge huge Decleor collection. I have acne scars and I think they haven’t heeled as well as it should because I have MS ME & lymphoma which has made my eyes look deep set when they are not at all deep set. Have you any ideas how I can get my eyes back to normal?
    P.S. Don’t forget to enter me into the comp. Thanks! xxx

    Hello Alison. I’m in my early 60s and have not had acne in 20 yrs. I look after my skin very well and it does look good for my age. Having said that the scars I had as a teenager and 20s are still showing and have not gone completely. I exfoliate regularly but my skin is too translucent and sensitive for dermabrasion products. Is there anything that I can try please? Thank you.

    Hi Alison, I discovered Decleor products thanks to you and QVC a couple of years ago. Prologene gel has changed my skin completely and I would never be without it. I only use Decleor products now and have pretty much the entire range. I also use their suncare range everyday. Only wish I had tuned into you and Fiona presenting this fabulous range years ago and saved myself years of trying products I didn’t like! Excited to hear there are new products coming and can’t wait for the next show. Thanks to you both for all the invaluable information and demos. Thank you. Mandie

    Decleor products for me especially are the best there is. The Body Milk is just divine. It makes me feel very feminine and gives my skin a lovely sheen. It smells like heaven and conditions my skin in a way nothing else can. I have used the Prolagene Gel for all sorts of things, eyes, tired and dry skin and on operation scars. It is extremely soothing to use and not sure what the magic ingredients are but they certainly give results. The Aroma Cleanse Micellar is a favourite as it does everything in one go, even takes off my eye makeup. Can’t always afford these products but they are always at the top of my list and to be in with a chance of winning these super sizes would be fantastic.

    decleor products are wonderful . They are the ones you always go back to .its like going home to a wonderful welcome.
    Prolagene is a great boost for aging eyes . I also used recently after a small operation on my throat which has made the scar almost disappear.

    I love prolagene gel I’ve been using it since 2012 on post operative scarring that was very bumpy and red prolagene hasn’t gotten rid of it but has improved it 100% more than things like bio oil and prescription treatments for scars so I’m no longer embarrassed to show the areas affected especially my neck chest and upper arms which were all scarred from having lines put into veins to feed me and administer medicine whilst I was in a coma and for nearly two years as an inpatient the lines got used so much the skin has become hard and lumpy in the scarred areas. Without prolagene gel id still be hiding in my bedroom. Please enter me into your competition Alison I would love to win some beautiful decleor products. P.s is it possible to ask if qvcuk could stock all the ylang ylang products and maybe put a kit together of the yy cleanser toner aromaessence balm and the hydra floral light that would be heaven especially if it was a tsv price to start with please please think about it xx

    What a great competion. Decleor have the answer to so many face & body issues with their products. The advise given on air or at any Decleor counter is always supportive & honest, not just wanting to grab your money. I would recommend that if you are thinking you need something more from your products try Decleor.

    Hi, although I use some Decleor I have not used Prolagene gel as I found it a wee bit expensive to buy and there is so much in the collections that cover most problems, I am in my 60’s and no doubt need this at my age so I am hoping I can be put forward for the competition, if lucky enough the price will be no problem for future purchases, thank you

    I have enjoyed using Decleor on my sensitive skin and will confidently new Decleor products without fear of bad reactions or breakouts.
    Good products for me are not felt on the skin (in an irritating way)
    but show on the skin in a positive way smoother, brighter more lifted.

    I use Decleor products and have done so for several years now, since discovering them on QVC. I love every single product I’ve tried and this is so unusual as I find I buy products and then dont use them / like them so never go back for more. I find that all Decleor producst suit my sensitive, aging skin and so I would recommend them to all young and old. Well worth the extra pennies.

    Hello Alison, I would like to win a Decleor collection. I have pigmentations on both chicks I have Epilepsy and other medical condition. I tried using different skin care but nothing seems to work. I’m having inferiority complex due discoloration in my face. Do you have any idea in mind?

    I love this collection. All products my favourites. But I would like to ask you why it’s not recommended to use Prologen with Glycolic products. Is it would be OK to use Prologen gel on top of Glycolic , like I do at the moment. I use Alpha-H serum and on top put balm mixed with Prologen gel.
    Thank you.

    I use Prolagene gel every day and it is my MUST have beauty product. I have very topsy turvy sensitive skin and over the past 40 years have found the best solution for me is not to use the same products continuously – I rotate those I have found to suit me – this has avoided any major issues for some considerable time. One product I do miss on QVC is exotic lime and ginger bodywash and body lotion by Elemis. I tune in whenever possible to watch Elemis presentations but have not seen on air for a very long time. Please is there any change of this product returning.

    kind wishes Vanessa

    Hi Alison
    I have been trying for years to get to speak with you on your beauty shows. I wanted to say that tha advice and tips you provide are fantastic. With your help, I have managed to keep my face and neck looking fairly good for someone who will soon be 58 (but 16 in my head). I know we are always advised to pump our skin with collagen. Over the past few days, I have been applying a very thin layer of SBC collagen under my serums and moisturiser. I use Gatineau age benefit serum at night followed by age benefit moisturiser and in morning I use meletoginine serum and defi lift mosturiser (I bulk by Gatineau). Could I also use prolagen under my serums ( maybe using SBC and prolagen on alternate days/weeks)? I also wanted to ask why one side of my face seems crinkly (although very soft and smooth) while the other side is not? Can I do anything to help this? I know you are very busy but I would really appreciate your advice – as I say, I’ve been trying for a long time to get advice. Meant to say that Gatineau products have been excellent at almost completely removing ‘butterfly shaped’ pigmentation from my neck. BTW, I love your no nonsense,get to the point, confident kind of ‘cheeky’ – in a very fun way – approach to presenting!

    Love Decleor. I have discovered that the prolagene gel is really helping with my skin that seems to be sensitive to sun, pollens, cant seem to find exactly what. This gel soothes and takes away the itch and helps to heal. With the added benefit of a 55 year old neck and dec that I’m really proud of.

    I bought this gel in a set and got the massive tube with couple of other great items,it’s a huge tube and glad I bought 2 sets as the price was so good. I had a very bad burn on my arm and I use the gel to stop scaring day and night and looking at my picture of the burn in the beginning you would not believe how good my scar is now it’s nearly gone. I like the fact you can use the gel for almost any skin problem and the big tube lasts forever it’s brilliant.

    Hello Alison, thank you for this wonderful offer. I would so love to win as I love Prolagene, I have used this for many years, and have purchased all of them from wonderful QVC, the reason I am applying now is I would so love to give this to my dear friend Joy, she has just undergone the most horrific surgery, she has cancer of the ear and has gone into her brain, she has had the surgery, they cut off her ear and then went into her brain to remove the cancer, they had to take some of her shoulder blade away, also a muscle from her right leg, (she was cut from knee to thigh) to reconstruct her face, her scars are huge, She is so very very brave, her scaring is awful to look at, but I have given her my Propolis and Arnica to use on her scaring, but her poor face has dropped, the surgeouns are hoping to lift her eye, and also later, when she heals,make a new ear for her, Joy is trying so hard to be strong and I speak to her every single day, and go to see her as and when she feels like seeing someone, poor lady, she has been to hell and back. How precious is our life and every moment we live. I love my dear friend Joy so much, I feel so helpless. Thank you Alison . Love from Barbara xx

    Hi there Alison…..I have a question regarding Prolagene. I apologise if this has been asked before!!! When using the Neroli Night Balm, do I use Prolagene that night? Or do I just use it in the morning?
    Currently I use the Aromessence Neroli, Prolagene, eye gel then Ultrasun 50 in the day time.
    Night time I use Night Balm and eye gel only.
    Any guidance much appreciated!
