Last week I finished my second box of Collagen Lift after two months of use. Collagen Lift Paris kindly sent them for me to test out and here are my thoughts in it.
What is it?
Collagen is a structural component found in the body that provides firmness, plumpness and elasticity to the skin. Loss of collagen in the body leads to wrinkles and sagging skin which comes with age. Collagen Lift has been developed to be absorbed into the body to reverse the signs of ageing.
Collagen lift is conveniently packaged in single-use vials. The gold tube looks very sleek and will not spill even when travelling.
It is sold in a box of 28 ampoules which is said to be 1 month’s supply but of course, it’s slightly short of that.
How to Use
A single vial needs to be opened with the provided opener and mixed into a glass of juice or water. It must be taken on an empty stomach so it’s the first thing I have every morning. I find it tastes best when drinking it with juice because even though it is sweet tasting due to its berry flavour, it does have a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. One thing I learnt is not to mix it in with tea or coffee, it tastes horrible.
Collagen Lift is formulated to tackle wrinkles and make the skin appear firmer with continued use. It contains seaweed which helps the body absorb the product better while providing essential amino acids, calcium, magnesium and zinc. It also contains Vitamin C to help produce collagen in the dermis while it scrubs the cells of free radicals, improving the skin’s condition.
Is it Halaal?
Yes, it is halaal certified. Just do your research when shopping for collagen supplements as others are from porcine (pig) origin.
Where to Buy
Collagen Lift is available from Dischem and selected Clicks stores. You can find a full list of retailers here.
The large inconsistency of prices across the different retailers does concern me a bit. It’s R650 at Dischem, R714 at Clicks and R740 on their website. However, both Clicks and Dischem are currently having specials on the Collagen Lift for R357 and R325 respectively until the 6th September.
While I do feel my skin has improved over the last two months, I do think it is due to a combination of factors. I use a hyaluronic acid serum twice a day, retinol at night (which also helps plump up the skin) and have upped my water intake. I do think that the drinkable collagen works but it would definitely be more noticeable in those 50+ years of age with deep-set wrinkles, sagging skin and crow’s feet.
Prevention is better than cure and I do think at my tender age of 31 I should be taking collagen supplements daily. However, I do not think I would repurchase this specific one. I’ve seen various powders and capsules available and while it might be said that it doesn’t work as effectively, I’ve done my research and would definitely be more comfortable drinking capsules daily.
