Collagen supplements – what’s that all about?

Collagen supplements

 

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll have read one or two posts I’ve done about collagen drinks, and pills that claim to make you look younger feel fitter and all kinds of things that are reasonably hard to measure. I was first introduced to them at the Anti-Aging Beauty Show and I’ve written  reviews of Skinade collagen drink and  Gold Collagen drinks published after trying the drinks for 10 days.

This post is a kind of refelctive  overview of  the whole collagen thing. Since these reviews both brands offered me a 30 day trial of their products and I took up Gold Collagen on their offer. I’ve also been sent Xenca and Colladeen Visage to try.

Let me sum up what I think about each of the brands:

Skinade: This was the first collagen drink that I’d tried. It was quite a large drink at 150ml per bottle and had a fruity taste which I found a bit cloying. I took it each day at breakfast though and it was no hardship. I only had 10 days supply and the blurb says that you may see a difference from 20 days. So to be fair I was in no position to judge the effects. I thought my skin might have felt a bit better but that could have been the effects of other topical products.

Gold Collagen: I tried the 10 day supply and again I didn’t really notice any effect. The drinks were smaller like shots really but the taste was a bit artificial though not unpleasant. Again I thought maybe I looked “well” but nothing tangible. After I posted the review I was sent 30 days supply. I wasn’t asked to try it or review it. It just arrived. I left it on the shelf while I tried out some skin care products so that I wouldn’t blur the lines of the reviews. Then about a month ago I thought I’d give the 30 day trial a go. I took the drink every morning with breakfast and it became a routine and I kind of looked forward to it. But you know what? I still can’t tell if there’s any difference! I’m wondering perhaps that I’d feel and look worse after stopping for a while but I’m not convinced that you would be able to see a difference unless you carry out scientifc tests.

Xenca Collagen:  I was sent these by a lovely lady who really believed in the products. I promised to give them a try and feel bad that I haven’t really given them a fair go. The thing is the instructions say that you should take them an hout after eating before you go to bed but I  couldn’t remember to take them and when I did remember it was either in the morning or I’d just eaten. So the product could be amazing it just doesn’t suit me.

Colladeen Visage:  This product is slightly different – as well as collagen it promises to boost SPF. I’ve only taken it for the first time today. Fortunately the only instruction is to take with meals and I can do that with breakfast. I’ll need t report back on this one at a later date.

So – what do I think overall and so far? I really don’t believe that anyth ing that you take orally can boost collagen – wouldn’t stomach acid destroy the collagen? I know I’m not a scientist but it would seem logical. I really think that you could probably get the same effects from a healthy diet and keeping hydrated. I’d love to be proved wrong of course. As well as that these products aren’t cheap and I think that if I paid out that kind of money over a long period  I would want to see tangible results.

Prices are:

Skinade: £90 for 30 days supply

Gold Collagen: £35.99 for 10 days supply

Xenca Collagen: £17.95 for 90 days supply

Colladeen Visage: £18.95 for 30 days supply

Anyone got any stories about their experiences wiht these or other collagen brands? I’d love to hear about them.

Being a beauty blogger……

Blogger love

Blogger Event

I’ve haven’t written this kind of post before because I thought that no-one would want to know what I think or know about blogging. They just want me to get on with it and stay the hell out of their way!

Recently though I’ve realised that I’ve learned quite a bit since I started in January (yes I know I’m not Zoella or Tanya) and along the way quite a few people have asked my opinion about what I do. So, spurred along with my thought process by the odd outburst and thoughtless comment on social media I thought I might put my five eggs in.

Small Beginnings

I started off one January weekend thinking that I might be able to write something about my shopping experiences. I didn’t have any clue about the blogging business or that you could monetise it. I didn’t know that brands would contact me and invite me to events. I didn’t understand a thing.

I didn’t know that anyone would follow me on social media channels – my personal Twitter account had and still has a total following of less than 40! I didn’t know that I’d make friends virtually and in person with people round the world from different age groups – bloggers, brands and more that I connect with because of beauty.

Within a few weeks I’d learned so much and was quickly sucked into a world of events, marketing, chatter, gossip and friendship. People liked what I wrote and wanted to pay me to write more – it was hard to understand.

Setting my own standards

Over the last seven months I’ve had to set my own standards for how I work and interact with people that I’ve based on what feels right for me. I know that others feel differently and I would never expect everyone or anyone to agree but these are the things that work for me.

  • Be nice – I’ve a dear Glaswegian friend that’s always been the kindest person to me – and when I used to ask her why she used to say “it’s nice to be nice” and that thought reminds me to try to be a kinder person. I don’t always think kind things about people but I try not to hurt people by what I say and do. In blogging this means that I try to let people know when I think they’ve done something great, help them out if I can, and ignore or unfollow people who I really can’t take to.
  • Know your place - At the  beginning I was for ever apologising about not being a “real” blogger, or not having many followers, or for being new. These days I know I have a place in the blogging world and I’m confident that what I do has an audience. That doesn’t mean that I’ll win any awards, or have a You Tube channel with millions of views but I know that I have a product/brand that is valued and I’m content with that.
  • Show mutual respect – I try to always be respectful of others for what they know, what they’ve achieved or what they’ve endured. I don’t expect people to earn my respect, I give it to them and only withdraw it if they behave badly. In the blogging world this means that I always respond politely to brands and PRs even when what they’re proposing isn’t right for me. I try to help new brands and people new to blogging even though I may have nothing to gain. I believe in the saying about being nice to people on the way up in case you meet them again on the way down.
  • Don’t put too much pressure on yourself – Blogging started out as a hobby and although it hasn’t turned into a business it pretty much pays for itself. What I decided from the beginning was that I’d write what I wanted and when I wanted and I still do that now. I don’t schedule regular posts and can write as little as a post a week or more than one a day. The only time I stick to a schedule is if I’ve agreed with a brand that I’ll deliver something and always meet or exceed deadlines or targets. I’ve seen a lot of people fret about not being able to think of something to write and it’s not for me.
  • To have a friend you have to be a friend – another old but true saying. Reading other people’s blogs and commenting on them. Letting them know about events or anything that ‘ll help them on their way. Listening to people when they’ve had a hard time and saying the right thing might just make that person’s day. Being judgemental and saying mean things doesn’t help anyone and will probably lose you friends too.
  • Know your worth – Some other much more experienced bloggers have written about this recently but here’s my take on it. If a brand asks you to undertake a piece of work like reviewing a product then they should recompense you for that in some way. Of course if it’s a big brand the benefit for you may jsut be the prestige of working with them. But I try to approach this in a balanced and reasonable manner. The deal you make needs to be mutually beneficial. So for instance – if a brand wants to send me a product to try that I can write about or not depending on how you feel then I don’t expect to be paid. If they ask me to agree to write something in return for a product then I may turn down the offer – depending on what the product is and/or how prestigious the brand is. I would always be polite in turning down an offer and before doing so would put forward a deal that I think would be fair – which would be a nominal payment to take in account the hours/weeks spent trialling a product and carefully crafting a post. Sometimes we agree and sometimes I don’t hear back. That’s ok .
  • Be honest – So far I haven’t been asked to write something about a brand that’s untrue. Even when I’ve written a sponsored post I’ve always written what I think and then submitted for clearance. Brands always have the option to ask me not to post or not to link to my post after publication. It hasn’t happened yet. I’ve built my readership on being believable and I don’t think there’s any point in just writing copy that brands like if it loses you followers (and friends) and your self-respect.
  • Don’t take yourself to seriously  and have fun! – I’m in my fifties and clearly I’m not beautiful or someone that anyone would  aspire to be. I try to laugh at myself and hope that others can laugh with me. When I get things wrong in life or in my work or blogging I try not to take it too seriously and pick myself up and start again.
  • Work hard –  something I learned from my Dad is to work hard and be loyal. It didn’t make him a rich man but one to be admired. I’m working hard to build my audience here and to do the best I can and I think that’s good enough!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of what I’ve said above. And for those of you who only want to hear beauty news and reviews normal service will return shortly!

Review – La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System

I’ve been so excited to get my hands on the La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System due to launch in September 2014 RRP £32.95. It will be exclusively available from larger Boots and online at Boots.com. Now I’ve had the chance to try it out and can tell you about my first experience with this iconic brand!

La Roche Posay

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Anti-Blemish System

The system is designed for UK women and clinically tested and exclusively available in the UK. It uses the 3 steps that we are used to:

  • Cleanse
  • Tone
  • Correct & Hydrate

This anti-blemish system is intended to deal with the signs of oily blemish prone skin:

  • Blemishes
  • Clogged and enlarged pores
  • Excess Sebum
  • Uneven and rough skin texture
  • Red and brown marks

 

3 step system

3 step system

The routine begins with Efficlar Purifying Gel Cleanser to remove bacteria, followed by Effaclar Clarifying Toner to smooth mattify and tighten pores. Finally the Effaclar Duo + corrects the appearance of blemishes, unclogs pores and reduces the appearance of red and brown marks, whilst providing 24 hour hydration.

So what was it like in action? Well first let me say that I don’t have oily blemish prone skin – although I do have combination skin and blocked/enlarged pores and the occasional spot. (I’m usually quite proud of them at my age – reminds me of my youth!) So I thought that I’d still be a pretty goodcandidate to try out the system. The box claimed that you would see results within 4 weeks so that was my intended time-scale for review. However, I trialled the products for just a week and I’ll explain why later. I used the 3-step system night and day as prescribed.

Efficlar Purifying Gel Cleanser – I used this by putting it onto a damp wash cloth or muslin as this is my prefered way to cleanse. It left my skin feeling really clean and soft.

Effaclar Clarifying Toner – I haven’t been using toners for many years – it just seemed an unecessary extravagance but I had recently begun using a toner again as part of trialling another brand. This one from La Roche-Posay really cleansed my skin to the next level, removed more “dirt” and left my skin feeling squeaky clean.

Effaclar Duo + – This correcting hydrating cream went on smoothly and made my skin feel moisturised but not greasy.

The effects – I really enjoyed this system and I felt that it was a recipe for success. My skin felt really clean, particularly after toning although I did notice that my skin instantly reddened as I applied it. My pores are definitely clearer although I did experience a couple of spots during the week but I put that down  down to coincidence as I really can’t think that there is anything in the product that would cause spots. After a week when I was really in to the routine I noticed that I had flaky skin around my nose and along my nose to mouth line (somewhere that I’d never experienced dryness before) and in a small patch on my top lip. At this point I realised that this wasn’t the right combination of products for my skin type and so I stopped the trial.

I’m disappointed not to be using La Roche-Posay products and hope that I can discover the right products for me within the range. I do believe that the 3 step system is a good one and I’m passing the products to my daughter to trial. Hopefully I can persuade her to provide an update on her experience with them on the blog soon!

Which La Roche-Posay products have you tried? I’d love to hear about them.

The products were PR samples but I wasn’t paid for the review and the views in it are my own.

Review – Nars Sheer Glow Foundation & Space NK

 

I finally found a great excuse to visit my local Space NK again. I don’t know why but I’d always thought that the shop looked a bit intimidating. I had a perception of place full of up market products and beautifully made up women that looked like they might judge you if your eye-liner isn’t just so.

Then a few weeks ago I wanted to buy a gift for my daughter and having walked through a local department store and not been able to get any assistance i decided it was time to explore. I had the best experience there. They took time to find just the right product, in the right shade, wrapped it beautifully and even added a few samples. They helpfully signed me up to their loyalty card too. The assistants were the loveliest most knowledgeable people and my fears were unfounded.

So yesterday, I realised there was no way I could get another day’s use out of my Clinique foundation. Having asked around among my blogger buddies there were two recommendations on which brand I should try and as one of them, Charlotte Tilbury, wasn’t available in any of the stores near where I work I settled on seeking out NARS Sheer Glow Foundation.
140819 Space NK bag

 

On arrival at the store I was quickly approached by an assistant who was happy to stop what she was doing to pay me full attention. She asked me several questions to help me select the best type of foundation for my skin. She then colour matched the foundation and took time to explain the best way to apply the foundation applying it fully for me so that I didn’t have to make a judgement just on a patch test. Once I’d decided on a shade (Sante Fe) I asked whether there was anything else that I should consider buying from the range once pay-day comes. she gladly demonstrated a complementary concealer. To finish off  she kindly noted down the shades of the products she had demonstrated for future use. I didn’t for a moment feel hurried or pressurised to buy and I certainly didn’t feel judged. I love the shop and can’t wait to buy try more brands and products when my budget allows.

NARS 140819

So, what do I think of the foundation? Well, I love it of course, but there’s more to say. I’d read recommendations and tried out the product in the store but I’d forgotten all about the pump issue. What pump issue is that then? It’s the one where there isn’t a pump dispenser on the foundation bottle. I know there was one on the bottle that was demonstrated in Space NK. So I looked it up on-line. They’re sold separately – a bit annoying and another £3. Not a lot you say but till an extra 10% on the price just so you can dispense the right amount of product. Then you see that they’re really difficult to get hold of – but I guess I can get one on-line and wait a few days but what’s this? Once you put the pump on the bottle the lid doesn’t fit???? NARS really? Sure;ly you can do better than this? But if you can’t – then you’ll have to forgive me but I’ll be looking out for a substitute brand that delivers on all aspects.

140819 NARS Foundation

Forgetting the packaging issue the foundation itself is perfect for me. It smooths on easily with the finger tips. No, not with a brush, it’s recommended that you apply a small amount to the skin with your fingers so that it warms the product. You can touch up with a brush if you like. It blended into my skin easilyand didn’t look cakey or sit in my lines and wrinkles. It felt smooth to the touch,  not greasy and I loved how it looked. It lasted well through the day too. It costs a not too outrageous £31.00 here.

So NARS I’m loving what you do – but could your just try a bit harder?

Want to share your NARS and Space NK experiences? I’d love to hear them. Leave me a comment below.

Review – Collection “Little Mix Love” All About the Eyes Palette

I’ve had this Collection “Little Mix Love” All About the Eyes Palette for a litle while now and so I’ve been able to test it out and try a couple of different looks. The original pictures I took weren’t great and although these are marginally better you can see that I’ve been giving the palette some use and carrying it around in my make-up bag. It’s fair to say that the exterior doesn’t travel well as it’s cardboard but that doesn’t take away from the joy of using the product in general.

140817 Collection Palette

140817 Collection Palette 2

Every make-up brand has at least one nude palette these days and Collection aren’t excluded from the trend. They consulted with girl band Little Mix on this Collection “Little Mix Love” All About the Eyes Palette and they picked a few of their favourite shades for inclusion in this great value for money palette. The colours left to right are. 1. Feather 2. Sunkissed 3. Golden Sand 4. Dazzling Brown 5. Cocoa Dream 6. Blacktied.  All of the shades have a degree of shimmer except for Blacktied which is matte. My age usually makes me steer away from shimmery shadows as they emphasis lines and crepiness but I tried out a little of the Golden Sand on the inner part of my lid and put Dazzling Brown on the outer corner and in the crease to make a glamourous evening look. The colours are quite subtle on their own and you need to build them but I made this easier by using a primer which made the colours clearer and helped them to stay in place. This on is getting Strandonbeauty Love as well as Little Mix’s.

The palette is available in Superdrug stores priced £3.19.

Review – GOSH Defining Brow Gel

Defining Brow Gel

GOSH Defining Brow Gel

I did take my own picture of this honest! But it was such poor quality – I couldn’t share it! It’s not easy taking pictures of black items that are shiny like this – especially with just the camera on my phone and no lighting. Anyway, you don’t care about that do you? – you just want to read my review.

Well I didn’t have any expectations at all about the GOSH defining brow gel. At only £4.99 (here), it’s part of the GOSH range that I picked up at a blogger event a while ago. (More of that here.)

I’ve got fair, quite sparse eye-brows and I struggle to find the right colour to suit my hair and skin and a product that stays put. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this GOSH product. It goes on easily with a brush similar to a mascara wand. The consistency isn’t so thick as mascara but tints the brows nicely without too much risk of the colour transferring to the skin. For a day-time look I leave my brows at that. But for a night-time look or a more formal occasion I add more colour from a brow liner. It stays on all day and doesn’t smudge so I’m really loving it and will definitely repurchase. It’s such a bargain. I wouldn’t want to be without one in my make-up bag.

You can purchase GOSH clear brow gel here but the coloured versions are only available  in store for now.

Review – Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 1

Karin HerzogTen days ago I decided to take the Karin Herzog selfie challenge. I’d heard that this brand is loved by Amber Heard and the Duchess of Cambridge! So – I chose to trial the Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 1 Day & Night Face Cream.

The rules of the challenge are that I had to take a no-make-up selfie; follow the product instructions; use only the Karin Herzog product for 10 days, take another no make-up selfie; then tweet what I think. Fortunately, publishing the no make-up selfies is optional so I’ll be keeping mine to myself! But to make up for the lack of photos in my tweet I thought that I would  give a fuller impression of my experience.

I’ve already written a bit about Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 1 Day & Night Face Cream and first impressions here. So what else to say? The instructions say that you shouldn’t rub in the product but just smooth it over the skin. This meant that the cream was still visible as a white layer but strangely enough when I touched it to try and rub it in – it just disappeared – must be the oxygen!

Over the 10 days I felt that my skin was feeling firmer and more taut. I couldn’t see any changes in my wrinkles and lines though but I was hopeful. Sadly, when I looked at my photo I couldn’t see any difference in these either. What I did notice though that my pores were clearer and that some of the pigmented spots (freckles? age spots?) were lighter. So a fresher look  maybe how I’d describe it.

I don’t think that 10 days is long to test a product and potentially there could be further improvements with extended use. Additionally, I did take the pictures early in the morning so there were pillow creases to contend with! Always a challenge.

I”m pretty happy with the results I got. I’m not sure it’s my “ho;ly grail” product and but it’s a pretty good contender.  I’ve really enjoyed the challenge – but now I’m off to delete those no make-up pictures before anyone else sees them.

Would you be brave enough to take the challenge?
