I took the Skinade 30-day trial…
Skinade is an anti-ageing skincare drink, it aims to increase skin hydration and radiance, plus reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the main ingredients is collagen, a protein that naturally occurs in the body, it is responsible for skin support, firmness, elasticity, hydration, and the constant production of new skin cells. However as we grow older our body loses collagen, causing skin ageing which results in wrinkles, dry skin and fine lines. Other important ingredients in Skinade include Vitamin C and Vitamin B Complex.
The Skinade drink should be taken once each day, and will start showing results after around a month. I was sent a 30 day supply of Skinade to try out, to see if it really works.
Skinade is an orange coloured, peach flavoured drink – it took me a few days to get used to the flavour as I thought it was quite sweet and artificial at first but I gradually grew to like it. It tastes particularly refreshing if you keep it in the fridge and drink it cold, although it doesn’t have to be refrigerated. It doesn’t contain any artificial flavours or colourings and you can see the full list on ingredients in the image above, plus it is free from lactose, gluten and dairy. I decided to take it in a morning, straight after my breakfast, and it easily became part of my routine.
Skinade comes in packs of 150ml bottles, there are 5 to a box, or also small travel size sachets which are really handy for popping in a suitcase or a handbag. You just tear the top off the sachet and pour the contents into a glass of cold water. I much prefer the travel sachets to the bottles, they take up far less space and are really convenient.
So what results did I see?
I don’t really have many fine lines or wrinkles yet, apart from a slight vertical wrinkle in between my eyebrows when I frown, so I was mainly looking to see if I could see any other benefits from drinking Skinade. After a couple of weeks I felt to have a bit more energy; I’ve been eating healthily and drinking lots of water too recently, so I can’t say for certain whether this was the result of the Skinade or just a general improvement in my health. After around three weeks the skin on my forehead, which is quite dry and dehydrated looked a little more smooth and plumped than usual, and my skin did feel soft. I was still getting blemishes on my oily chin – a regular occurrence for me – but they didn’t seem to stay around for quite as long as usual. Skinade also claims to have a positive effect on hair and nails, and my nails definitely seemed much stronger than normal, in fact they’re the longest they’ve been for a while with no sign of breaking or splitting!
I didn’t feel that Skinade was a miracle cure for my skin, but I definitely saw positive improvements. I’ve read lots of great reviews of Skinade too, from people who have seen great benefits and it’s also suggested to help those with psoriasis and eczema. I’m not sure that I’d incorporate Skinade into my daily routine on an ongoing basis as it’s not cheap, but I’d definitely consider buying the travel sachets again and using them for a few weeks to give my skin a bit of a boost – perhaps after Christmas or before a big holiday.
A 30 day supply of Skinade 150ml bottles is priced at £105, available from the Skinade website.
A 30 day supply of Skinade 15ml travel sachets is priced at £105, available from the Skinade website.
I guess the prices sound quite expensive, but when you break it down it’s only £3.50 per day which is cheaper than a cup of fancy coffee! If you’re thinking of trying it out I’d definitely recommend the travel sachets as they’re so easy to use and don’t take up much space.
I’d love to hear what you think of Skinade if you’ve tried it, leave your comments below.
Skinade should only be taken by those over 18.
