I have mentioned previously the importance of Collagen. However, Collagen drinks are normally not cheap. I happened to see a box of Kinohimitsu 2500mg Collagen drink (8 bottles) for sale at RM38.50 (S$12.70) (purchase with purchase) at Watsons Malaysia when I went there for a wedding lunch at Sutra Mall on 8 January 2017.
The box packaging is slightly different from the one sold in Singapore.
However, I noted that they are the same. It is also called J’pan Beauty Drink in the information booklet which was inside the box I bought.
I noted the nutrition facts are the same as the one selling in Singapore too.
As stated on the box, this is an instant drink with delicious taste. The beauty that glows from inside out.
Kinohimitsu Beauty Drink is the most effective way to restore youthful vitality to skin, not only on your face, but your whole body including the neck, bust and bum. It is a functional instant drink with a high concentration of Collagen which works effectively to plump up your skin.
You are supposed to see smoother, firmer and younger looking skin in just 6 days.
Collagen is a protein found in our bones, teeth and hand muscles which supports cellular activity. 70% of skin is made up of Collagen that helps skin stay firm and bouncy. We can associate Collagen to the pillars supporting our skin or the spring in the mattress. When the supporting pillars sag or the springs wear out, the “padding” of our skin dissipates; there will be loss of firmness and wrinkles start to appear.

What I thought:
I tried the drink in both room temperature and chilled from the refrigerator. Both tasted nice as there is the lychee flavor. I usually drank it in the morning before breakfast at 930am. I also drank it before bedtime at home as I have them chilled in the refrigerator. In the morning, our body absorption is the best. At night, our bodies rebuild, Collagen will help to heal scar and skin renewal.
I drank a bottle every day for consecutive 8 days. At the 6th day, I didn’t notice any significant improvement on my face. After the 8th day, I thought my skin on my arms are firmer. I tried to see the difference on my face. I thought the fine lines on my forehead are reduced and the skin seemed firmer. I think I need to continue the drink in order to see the results.
