I have been researching collagen drinks for several months. But, having tried samples here and there I had yet to find one that was palatable enough to commit to drinking a full bottle much less drinking it every day for a month. But, following a chat with Agostina from Skinade at a workshop we both attended I was sold. I took a hideous no make up selfie the day I started. Notice the dark circles and general uneven tone in my skin.
First things first, the taste!! It is gorgeous, not overly sweet and tastes like mango juice. I really loved the flavour. In the first week I noticed my skin becoming clearer. Because it was early days I wasn’t sure if it was the drink or if I was just having a “good skin week”. But, by week two there was no doubt that the Skinade was definitely having a positive effect on not only the tone of my skin but felt my fine lines were less noticeable. The sciency bit about Skinade is contains 7000mg of marine collagen (7000mg), calcium ascorbate, MSM, B Complex, flax seed and l-lysine. The ingredients are meant to increase the elasticity and the natural production of collagen in your skin.
By the third week my skin had a dewy appearance and the difference in my skin was becoming noticeable to my colleagues. At one point I was even asked if I had recently had any “work” on my face. Another unexpected and very pleasant surprise is that my hair was shinier and I noticed new hair growth. As I have particularly thin and fine hair this was a huge bonus. In fact even my lovely beautician commented that I had a huge amount of lash growth in the last month.
By the final week there was no doubt my skin was more even and there was a huge difference in the general tone and appearance. My skin was firmer and glowing even without my bronzer. There was a visible change in the appearance of fine lines.
If the 30 day course has results like this I can only imagine what a 90 day course would do. would certainly recommend this product and think it makes an excellent addition to your daily anti-ageing regime.
