While the size of the bottle threw me off at first (it’s a small bottle that is about half the size of a regular water bottle), I got over it—almost as quickly as I got used to the taste. To be honest, I expected it to taste much worse than it did mainly because the drink is bright yellow, but it actually tasted kind of sweet with only a very light lingering taste. It kind of tasted like Emergen-C, and smelled like it, too. Curious as to how the drink actually worked, I turned to Louise for more info. “The magic of Skinade happens when all the ingredients work together—the collagen is the hero, but it would be nothing without a cast of ingredients to support it,” she told me. “Skinade works as a feedback mechanism, designed to trigger a physiological response in our bodies. As the collagen peptides are absorbed into the bloodstream, it prompts a wound-healing response. This response triggers fibroblast activity, our own collagen factories, specifically in the skin as Skinade contains collagen type one and three, most abundant in the skin.” In other words, the beverage causes your body to start producing more collagen. It took me a few weeks to notice a difference from the extra collagen being produced in my body, but about 15 days in I began to notice my skin had more of a dewy look and a little more bounce. The drink is also offered in travel form—a small pack of a gel-like substance you add to half a glass of water when on the go.
