I have a very adventurous Mom when it comes to beauty. It must be where I get it from :P Anyway, about 3 months back, Mom came up to me and excitedly told me about collagen beauty drinks she’d read about in the papers and asked me if it might work to boost collagen in the skin, to prevent sagging skin and wrinkles etc.
I laughed cynically and said “I don’t believe it!”
So, to prove me wrong, and to try it for herself so we’d both know what the results were, she went out and bought a 3 month course of NH Colla-Plus Collagen Beauty Drink! All without asking me first. I tell you!
Anyway here’s her story written from her point of view based on my interview with Mommy PB.
Review of the NH Colla-Plus Collagen Beauty Drink by Mommy PB
I have been on this collagen beauty drink for 3 months. There are many brands in the market but I chose this one because I saw that it contained 5000mg of hydrolyzed collagen which was a much higher content than other brands and did not contain chemical additives.
The drink is not too sweet which is good. It contains marine collagen and a mixture of fruit drinks. Its quite tasty so it wasn’t hard to drink this everyday.
I followed the directions for the recommended dosage and took 1 bottle a day for the first week. On subsequent weeks, I took a bottle every alternate day.
After 3 months, I am convinced that my facial skin is feeling much more taut and is looking brighter. I have a patch of pigmentation on my cheek that is clearly lighter as my husband (Daddy PB) tells me (I don’t use whitening skincare products).
I did not have very saggy skin before this, but I can feel that my skin is much more taut all over even on my arms. I must say however, that I do take supplements and in this time, I have been using the Vichy LiftActiv CxP day and night creams for the face. PB says its because of the creams but I don’t think so. It is possibly a combination of everything and I do think this collagen drink has helped my skin all over.
The box says that you need 3 months for there to be visible effect and I am happy with the results. I will continue to take the drink possibly once a week from now on and I’m trying to get PB to take it – but she’s stubborn :P
I keep saying this, but Mom does have very good skin for her age. I did notice over the Mother’s Day weekend that the skin on her face is looking a little less lined. Sure, deep lines are still there but the very fine lines are blurred. I believe its a combination of everything she takes and uses on her skin and perhaps this Collagen drink has helped her. Mom is very diligent – much much more than I could ever be so when she says she takes it everyday – you can be sure I’d believe her.
I do agree that the skin on her face and arms too feel firmer – she made me do the pinch test and her skin is firm to the touch which is very admirable for her age. I know she does not use lotions or creams on her body so perhaps there is some effect from the drink after all. She’s now trying to get me to take it and see. Eeps! Should I? It costs RM89.90/box of 6 :P
Pros: Skin feels more taut and firm all over the body, Skin is brightened
Cons: Expensive to take for the initial 3 months
Have you tried this collagen drink or any other collagen drink? Did you experience any results? Should I try it and see how it fares? ;)
A box of 6 bottles of NH Colla-Plus Collagen Beauty Drink retails at about RM89.90 at major pharmacies but there are sometimes discounts or special offers
