No sugar. No flavoring. Just pure 20,000mg of pure collagen from Cosmo Skin. I was browsing around Watson’s scouring for a new collagen supplement to try. The pharmacist on the counter was courteous enough to recommend me Cosmo Skin Premium Collagen Drink. Now there are a lot of other collagen available that day; Watson’s Jelly, Mosbeau Placenta Collagen, Shiseido The Collagen. But I decided to purchase this one because she told me this has the highest mg content of collagen. (Learn more about collagen here)

Cosmo Premium Collagen Ingredients
It says in the back it has 20,000mg of collagen and 0 calories. Some collagen supplements like Shiseido or Belo Collagen mix in some sort of flavoring or sugar in them to make the drink more palatable since collagen is either marine, sheep or pig derived (yes pig)
Mix with 200ml liquid. You can mix it with water, juices, coffee, any liquid. I just used water on this one to find out how it tastes like by itself.
Review: Cosmo Premium Collagen Drink
Price – The price is fair enough for the amount of collagen you’ll be getting
Packaging – Each drink is enclosed in a cardboard tube with an aluminum pop cover. I like the fact that it’s eco-friendly
Texture – The collagen powder content is one of the finest I’ve seen. Literally fine. Making it easy to mix.
Scent – SUPER FISHY
Taste – SUPER FISHY. I highly doubt mixing it with other drinks can cloak the fishy flavour of this collagen drink. Don’t tell me I didn’t try. I tried covering my nose, not breathing, mixing it with juice, but it still tasted like all the ocean’s fish extracted in a bottle.
Does it work? Call me lame but it tasted so awful I wasn’t able to take it for as long as 2 months to notice any remarkable difference on my skin. I only drank this for 5 days. It didn’t make me breakout and there was a soft glow on my skin when I wake up in the morning. The soft glow is similar to oil, but the good kind.
Will I buy again? Nope. I cannot handle the taste. I hope they study on how to improve the flavor? Because what’s the use of 20,000mg when it’s impossible to drink. Kudos to the ladies and gentlemen who can endure drinking this.

1 – It should cease to exist on the planet.
2 – Troublesome. Caused negative reactions for me or made me feel bad.
3 – Boringly blah blah blah. Not good. Not bad. It’s like… nothing…so I’ll just give it away to someone who might like it more than I do.
4 – Wow. Amazeballs. It’s super effective! I’ll keep this in my stash for sure until I find something better.
5 – It’s irreplaceable! *ala Beyonce* (disclaimer:unless it gets discontinued boohoo)
