17 Blackmores Collagen - High Strength!

Life begins at 4 ...no. Life begins the moment I step out of bed, everyday! I choose to embrace every stage of my existence in this world! That's my mantra. ;) Have you got one?

As I progress into middle-age, several words have seen fit to meddle with my mind and magnify themselves - brown spots, crow's feet, fine lines, supplements, sugar-free, cholesterol-free, low-fat, low-sodium, anti-aging, collagen, firming, moisturising! I could go on.

Eyeing the hand cream that is lying in my IKEA weaved basket, I rub at my dry skin and walk over in a huff, telling myself, "It's good for me!". I began applying the cream. That's how I am with beauty care ever since I left my white-collar job at an IT firm.

However, I've been making little changes to include self-care as part of my daily routine, and not treat it as a chore that needs to be done only when I feel it's needed.

I think I'm doing a pretty good job with daily applications of some sort of face and body cream, plus scrubs and a hair-thingy once a week. Do you remember the names of half the products you use? It was less complicated than I used to remember. A face cream was just 'Face Cream'. Now, there's Revitalift Laser x3,  UV whitening, active cellular restoration, bio-restorative day creams ..? I'm LOL-ing as I type these out.

Anyway, I'm going out of topic.

As we get older, it's only natural that we think about taking better care of ourselves. So, I guess all these words that have made their way into my life is only there because I'm making a conscious effort to be healthier.

When I saw Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg, I knew I had to try it! Collagen is known for skin rejuvenation. As we grow older, we produce less collagen. Women my age take collagen supplements for overall wellness and to keep their skin looking young.

Blackmores Collagen - High Strength!

This is it - my glass of chilled fish collagen. Cheers!

"Gahhh..!! That is fishy! " I shuddered as I took another sip. Yep, that's how I finished it. It's a whole lot fishier than I expected although it's masked with apple juice. I rank this drink as - 'challenging'.

Cheers!

My thoughts: I can't say for sure if it's the placebo effect on play, but I think my skin feels better after taking this.

There's a saying - If it's hard to swallow, it must be good for you. Lol!

  1. A very positive mind, Sharon and that is what matters. Lead a simple and happy life.

    Hmm. I do not take that much supplements now compared to when I were in my 20s as I am not working now. So, no money to spend on supplements and beauty products. Haha.

    2. Hi Rose, Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg which is enhanced with Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin E for complete skin rejuvenation in just six to 12 weeks. If your collagen breakdown in your skin is much faster and at a higher rate than what your body is manufacturing and the amount you are taking via collagen drinks/ supplements, you may need a longer time to see the benefits of collagen.

  3. Beauty product that need to swallow is a no for me, but those applied on the skin, I love to experiment with it. I only use basic product, moisturizer is a must in the morning before off to work.

  4. Fishy drink? I think I won't be able to swallow this drink. Lol! I prefer swallowing pill than fishy drink. I am not one that depends on supplements on long term, only occasionally.
