Here’s my take on Otsuka Collagen C Jelly. As I sip my iced cafe latte in my favorite coffee place, I contemplate. Until when can I keep up the image of being a vampire. I am not getting any younger. I’m 29. Yes folks, one year more and we’re hitting the big 3-0, another year and I’m off the calendar. Despite the number, I am proud to say that I look 10 years younger than most of my peers. It is not genetics. It is not by sheer luck. It is by spending thousands on collagen, glutathione, and other anti-aging skin supplements and skincare products. You can trust me when I say I won’t judge you when you only want to be the best version of yourself.

I pinch my nose to cloak the fishy taste LOL
Today let’s talk about collagen. It comes in all forms, from powder drinks to pills. They have their own pros and cons. Powder drinks have high amounts of collagen in it like 20,000mg. In order to have the equivalent amount in capsules, we have to take like 4-6 pills *ick*. Collagen drinks also tastes fishy, no matter what they do to cloak the taste. The most tolerable I have tried so far is the one from HyC that has a faint condensed milk taste + fish.

You cannot take away the fish as collagen brands use this as the main component for their products. How can they make collagen supplements more palatable? Please skincare gods.

Thoughts – I’m so happy this was invented. It makes taking collagen so easy. Oh and yes it works like any other effective japanese collagen supplement. I’m still taking this supplement ha mind you baka nga forever. My skin is more glowing, tighter, poreless, lines are barely visible. I don’t know if I’m happy but I’ve been getting compliments left and right on how I look younger now than how I looked like 10 years ago.. case in point photo below.
I wish other supplements can come in candy and jelly form too! Para it doubles as dessert! LOL
Okay case in point, this was taken 10 years ago… see my recent photo below in HD pa..
