This is going to be a long post. Because I am doing a proper review, so read on if you are interested in taking collagen or are already taking them but want to know how Blackmores Collagen fare in comparison to the other brands.
I have always strongly believed in taking supplements to keep ourselves looking youthful and radiant. Years ago I started taking collagen, initially in bottle form, not going to name the brand here but basically it wasn’t before long that I couldn’t handle the sweetness to be consumed on a daily basis over a long period of time. And I have a sweet tooth. That was why I had to throw half a year of supply away because I was procrastinating drinking it for so long that they all expired eventually. T_T
Few years down the road, I started taking collagen in its pure powder form (imported). I thought it was a brilliant idea, save for the fact that collagen is rather fishy on its own, so I would mix it with my breakfast (cereals, milo, juice). However, that lasted for a year and soon the habit died off because frankly I’m not really a breakfast person and the powder does change the taste of my milo. Three bags of premium quality collagen expired eventually. T___T
When I was offered Blackmores Collagen to try, I thought, why not, wouldn’t hurt to try. And I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the taste was. It wasn’t super sweet, nor super sour like the other brands I’ve tasted, it was just nice.
While I’m not an expert on the science of food, these are my thoughts based on my knowledge on collagen drinks: products with no preservatives would have to resort to natural ingredients that has preservative characteristics; such as honey, sugar, or Vitamin E, or citric acid, etc. Sugar is the cheapest, and you would have to put a LOT of sugar to have a shelf-life of 1-2 years. Which would result in an extremely sweet concoction; i.e. my first bottled collagen experience. But too much on other ingredients won’t cover the fishy taste and/or will result in a rather sourish taste. And an unpleasant taste is difficult to consume over a long period of time.
I love how Blackmores uses more expensive ingredients such as grape seed extract, Vitamin E, citric acid to aid in natural preservation and maintain a balanced flavor on top of sugar instead of abusing a single main ingredient (which could result in the drink being either too sweet or too sour or too fishy).
The second thing I love about the Blackmores Collagen was that it uses 10,000mg of collagen, a significant higher content of collagen than many other brands out there, but has better execution of ingredients (to preserve and cover the fishy taste) than other brands that use the equal amount of collagen.
A person needs a daily dose of 5,000mg of collagen a day, and at 10,000 mg it is sound advice to tell you to drink it once every two days. While I’ve seen other collagen brands with 10,000mg asking their consumers to drink it once every three days so to make it seem more worthwhile if you were to drink it monthly.
Again, this review is based entirely on my understanding on collagen and view of different types of collagen I have taken so far.
For me, this is a good product. Priced at RM159 which is affordable but definitely worth setting aside a budget for should you be serious about maintaining your youthful looks.
As we age, we need to be more cautious with our food intake and regular exercise is a must no matter how much we abhor working up a sweat. After all, it gets harder to shed the excess weight once our metabolism slows down. Getting enough sleep is also important. I always try to sleep before midnight unless I am rushing something but I do realize that for a lot of people nowadays, there aren't enough hours in a day, what with work taking up most of the hours and coming home to housework.
Ageing also means that collagen levels are down and we need to find ways to supplement or increase the collagen level. Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids, which are in turn built of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Collagen contains specific amino acids (Glycone, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine) to act as building blocks needed to make proteins, including collagen and elastin. This aids skin repair and regeneration and promotes new cell growth.
This is where Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength plays a role - it is enhanced with Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin E for complete skin rejuvenation in just 6-12 weeks. Collagen regenerates and repairs skin, while promoting new cell growth for firm and radiant youthful beauty. Antioxidants vitamin E and grape seed extract helps in protecting cells from free radical damage.
Those who are experiencing the following signs can consider taking
Fine lines and wrinkles
Brittle hair and nails
I've experienced all of the above except rough skin and enlarged pores. However, it's inevitable at my age. Fortunately, I can improve the situation as there's Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength which I have been taking for over a week now. It has a delicious berry taste because of the grape seed extract that has no fishy smell at all and it contains high quality fish collagen. It also has apple juice and citric acid so the taste is very fruity. You know how some collagen drinks can be a little difficult to consume because of the fishy taste? Well not with Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength as it is extremely palatable.
Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength has fish collagen, Vitamin E
and Grape Seed Extract as its active ingredients:

If the collagen’s breakdown in your body is much faster and at a higher rate than what your body is producing, you may need a longer time to see the benefits of the collagen drink/supplement. In other words, you would see the benefits faster at a younger age so someone like me will probably need at least a month to six weeks to see a marked difference in my skin.

We all know that aging is inevitable but we can try to prolong and maintain our youth by practicing a healthy lifestyle, positive thinking and also with the help of effective beauty products. Well, apart from my daily skincare routine, I also consume skincare supplements or collagen drinks. Recently, I tried the new Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg Drink that is enhanced with Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin E for complete skin rejuvenation. Can you see any difference?
With all the stress from work, environment pollutions and demanding lifestyle; how can we keep ourselves looking good, beautiful and young? Sometimes 24 hours a day is not enough, I wish I can have more time. Now, I have learned how to manage my time better by prioritizing my tasks, saying no to those unimportant things and planning my schedule ahead.
With my busy lifestyle juggling family, work, blog and my hobbies; a good daily skincare routine is not enough. Age is catching up and as my body starts to lose collagen, signs of aging becomes more visible such as fine lines, dehydrated skin, lack of skin firmness and pigmentations.
Therefore I need collagen drinks to maintain and boost my skin youthfulness. Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids, which are in turn built of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Collagen contains specific amino acids (Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine) to act as building blocks needed to make proteins, including collagen and elastin. This aids skin repair and regeneration and promotes new cell growth.
Before I apply or consume any products I will make sure that it is safe, of good quality and effective. I started taking Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg drink 1 bottle a day consistently for 6 days every morning before my breakfast. It tastes like berry with a hint of sweetness. Even though it contains fish collagen peptide, it doesn’t taste or smell fishy at all. It is very pleasant to drink and the bottle size is 60ml, which is convenient to carry in my handbag or luggage.
The first two days I started to feel thirsty very often and this is one of the signs that our body needs more water. I try to drink as much water as I can every hour therefore I go to the toilet more often; but that helps to detox too. After the first week I began to feel more energetic, my lips were not as dry and my skin became supple.
I carried on with the routine for another week, and I began to feel and see more visible results. My fingertips were not so dry and rough; my skin became more moisturized and radiant. I like it when my makeup blends easily and stays longer. One thing I noticed is that the skin around my ankles and elbow are not as rough and flaky.
Overall, my skin moisture, radiance and smoothness improved especially those rough areas like ankles, elbows and knees. Taking collagen can also help to strengthen our bones and teeth. I wake up every morning feeling good and energetic. I feel happy when I look good in the mirror. If you are a woman, you will be the same too. My friends also noticed the changes in my outlook.
Usage: For first time users, it is recommended to take 1 bottle a day for 6 consecutive days. And for maintenance, take 1 bottle every 2 days. Shake well before drinking. It is not recommended for pregnant and breast feeding women.

As age catches up and with many late nights in our busy city life, we can't hide from fatigue or aging skin especially if you are in your early 30s!
Being a young working mom of 2 toddlers, my life has been super busy managing my daily chores, kids and work. I get very little sleep and am often out in the sun with my kids. I follow a strict skincare regimen from cleansing, to toning, to using the right serum; moisturizer and sunblock. I believe taking good care of your skin should also come from within.
Being an avid beauty fan, I started taking collagen after listening to my mother’s advice. It was long ago when I started using collagen from XX brands in sachet form mixed with water, and I was pleased to see the results. However, I stopped using the collagen after getting pregnant and was breastfeeding exclusively. With my hectic schedule, I find collagen in sachet form is not as convenient to use as I would find it a hassle to mix the powder before consumption.
Thanks to Blackmores, I have recently resumed taking collagen again, as it is now in bottle form and I can conveniently carry it in my bag wherever I go or just simply open a bottle and drink before I go to sleep every night! The taste is pleasantly sweet and fruity and most importantly it does not taste fishy at all, even though it contains fish collagen peptide.
I realized my skin has also become firmer, my nails and hair are shinier and stronger, and no more dry cuticles too! I am confident to go out without putting on makeup. I would definitely recommend this collagen drink to my friends and family members!
