My skincare routine has improved as I get older. Besides being blessed with a good skin (a comment I get all the time) I can count a number of times I have had break out especially in my twenties. I didn’t like it which is why I decided to take care of my skin. So I am always in the look out for luxury products that WORKS in skincare. In today’s world of social media, celebrity endorsements and digital marketing we are sold almost anything. Then it is up to a person to do their own research about what we being sold and if possible even consult health care advisors if what we being sold is not harmful. For me, if I am gonna spend my hard earned cash I make sure I take my time to do my research rather than take a word of a celebrity who is paid thousands to say the product works without even using it (but that’s another topic for another day). A year ago I came across Skinade and it got me curious. I did my research then asked them to send me a sample to try which I did ( I had to know the taste was bearable). It has a pleasant natural flavours of peach and mangosteen.
WHAT IS SKINADE?
Skinade is a drink that supports the skin all over your body. It works from inside out to rebuild and strengthen the collagen matrix below the skin’s surface, boosts natural levels of hydration and reduce the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles. It is developed by leading UK scientists and manufactured in the UK. It contains high grade collagen and essential micronutrients. Their high grade collagen is sourced from fresh water fish, low in sodium and avoids mercury contamination and each bottle includes 7000mg. This makes it not suitable for vegetarians. Skinade contains less than 35 calories.
THE TRY OUT PERIOD
Skinade sent me a 30day try out box which was beautifully packaged, inside with 15 bottle size ready to drink and the other 15 were 15ml travel pack sizes which you stir into half a glass of cold water and consume immediately. It took me 3 days to get use to the taste which I’m now used too and love. I drank it mostly in the morning with my breakfast or light snacks during the day. Since Skinade was taking care of my inside skin, my routine for the outside did not change. I started noticing the difference after 2 weeks of using it. After finishing the 30 day tryout I continued to drink it every other day and still on it.
It has taken me months to finally share what I think of this product because I am not one of those bloggers that will review a product after a few days of trying it.
As they say the proof is in the pudding. You can either take my word and see that Skinade does what it say – better skin from within by seeing the glow on my skin or trying it out for yourself. Yes it costly but seeing how it has taken my skincare regime to another level I doubt I will stop using it any time sooner. It has become a huge part of my lifestyle.
