We’re all on the quest for perfect skin, aren’t we? While I religiously follow the likes of Lauren from The Skinny Confidential and Kim Kardashian-West, I aspire to have a flawless complexion like theirs.
With the likes of Millie McIntosh, Kelly Osbourne, Kelly Hoppen and Dane Bowers pictured with Skinade. A collagen filled 35 calorie drink, I researched into finding out, was this the tonic I had been after?
The colder weather often dulls my skin, dries it out and makes it look, well, just a little bit sad. Knowing the properties of collagen and the benefits they have on the skin I was searching for something to give my skin life again.
As skin is the largest organ in the body, it is continuously exposed to environmental stress. With collagen being made from amino acids, the matrix of its make up ensures that it produces new skin cells to support firmness, elasticity and hydration. To put it simply, the more collagen you have in your system the healthier your skin looks and feels.

Having just turned 27 it’s alarming to discover that we lose 1% of our natural collagen from our skin annually, from the age of 20. So, therefore, it is imperative as we age to keep or collagen stores topped up.
First of all, Skinade, a brand founded on creating glowing, healthy-looking skin. Has carried out multiple complex studies. Surrounding collagen and the effects taking their supplement has on collagen within the body.
I was sent a 30 day supply to conduct my own skin research, shall we find out how I got on?
Arriving in a gorgeous presentation box with boxes inside. Each daily supply is provided in an easy to open, easy to store and easy to drink bottle. A gorgeous white slimline shape with silver lettering alludes to a luxury product. Priced at £90 for a 30 day supply.
Opening the bottle, Skinade is a vibrant orange in colour. It has a Mangosteen & Peach flavour which is pleasant to drink. It also contains Vitamin B and C, l-lysine, MSM, hydrolysed marine collagen and organic flax seed oil.
Vitamin B – a combination of B2 and B3 along with biotin contribute to the maintenance of normal skin health. This vitamin promotes clearer, glowing, radiant skin.
The Vitamin C – essential for natural collagen formation and collagen matrix maintenance. It also provides vital protection for the skin by boosting the immune system and reducing free-radical damage.
L-lysine – this is kind of the glue of Skinade, it is an essential amino acid which rebuilds the collagen matrix at a cellular level.
MSM – a naturally occurring form of organic sulphur found in all living organisms. Helps to form collagen and keratin which improves skin elasticity and inhibits cross-linking of collagen cells, which is a major cause of skin ageing.
Hydrolysed Marine Collagen – these high-grade hydrolysed marine collagen peptides are sourced from fresh-water fish, low in sodium and avoiding mercury contamination. With a staggering 7000mg in each bottle, you’re sure to be receiving the recommended daily dose.
Organic Flax Seed Oil – the Omega 3 & 6 are exclusively sourced from the organic flax seed oil that plays an important role in balancing dry and oily skin.
How did I get on?
Having taken the supplement for 30 days. After 4 days I noticed a drastic improvement in my skin’s appearance. With fewer pimples and a more flawless look. I could really see that not only my skin was smoother, my crows feet around my eyes looked reduced. While my complexion was bright and glowing. I didn’t feel like I was suffering from Winter skin anymore.
I didn’t mind drinking the drink as it was an alright flavour (it does have a weird aftertaste). And of course, I noticed many benefits. They do recommend drinking for 12 weeks to really see results. I can only begin to imagine what those results will be. I’m going to continue drinking Skinade and incorporating it into my daily routine due to the instant benefits I personally felt.
They do offer a travel option where the supplement is in a sachet form. Which was a godsend when in Vegas. Especially for helping me look human again with a hangover!
