Skinade Drink Review
Beauty brand Skinade has created a drink that can improve the appearance of your skin. Formulated with beneficial ingredients, Skinade will help deliver nutrients and hydration to the skin from the inside. Its star ingredient is collagen, which has been proven to have beneficial effects on the skin.
After age 20, the body stops producing as much collagen. This is why we experience skincare problems a few years down the line. Skinade believes by replacing this collagen and maintaining a healthy amount, the skin will improve.
When Skinade is properly used, it claims to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture, and improve skin tone. Its formula is patent pending.
Are Skinade’s Claims true?
A study was conducted to test the effectiveness of Skinade’s collagen formula, here are the results (provided by www.skinade.com):
- After 8 weeks, 91% of the peptide group showed a significant improvement in skin hydration by up to 28% compared to the placebo group.
- Skinade’s collagen peptides smooth fine lines by 26% and prevent deep wrinkle formation
- Polymer silicone skin prints were taken from each subject’s face at different times of measurement and studied using scientific tools designed to analyse the skin.
- After 12 weeks, the number of micro-relief furrows significantly decreased by 26% in the peptide group. In the placebo group, the number of deep wrinkles increased by 30%.
- Skinade’s collagen peptides increase skin suppleness by 19%
- After 6 weeks, 77% of the peptide group’s micro-relief furrows decreased by 41% and after 12 weeks, 68% of the group showed a 17% decrease in total wrinkle surface.
How Does Skinade Work?
If you’re smart, you know the age-old saying “you are what you eat” is insanely true. When the body consumes a drink or food, nutrients are distributed to the cells throughout the body. Once the body acquires all the essential nutrients, it begins to release leftovers to other cells such as those found on the skin. If the food or drink consumed contains toxic ingredients, the cells will feed off of these toxins which can cause them to malfunction.
When the body receives collagen it can:
- Plump fine lines
- Improve wrinkles
- Boost elasticity
- Heal scars
- Improve the appearance of cellulite
The Skinade drink contains over 7000mg of collagen which is extracted from fresh water fish. The collagen is hydrolysed, meaning it is converted into a peptide. Peptides have a smaller molecular weight which allows the formula to navigate through the body more easily. As the body obtains collagen, it improves the production of fibroblasts which help it naturally produce collagen. About 30% of the body is made of collagen, so it is important to ensure it is healthy and strong.
Skinade drink claims to:
- Strengthen and rebuild collagen
- Increase levels of hydration
- Reduce fine line and wrinkles
- Promote hair and nail growth
- Promote an overall youthful appearance
It may seem strange to add a drink to your skin care routine, but here are the things Skinade’s collagen drink can do for you:
- After 4-6 days skin is softer and more hydrated
- After 10-14 days skin is more even and radiant
- After 2-4 weeks skin appears more firm and plump
- After 4-6 weeks all benefits continue to improve
Skinade recommends you take one bottle of their formula per day. Although Skinade can deliver small results in as early as 5 days, most consumers don’t notice real results until around week 7. It is therefore best to opt for a 60 day supply.

What are people saying about Skinade?
Skinade has been featured in numerous magazines including Miss Vogue and Marie Claire. While the magazine reviews are all fine and dandy, it’s better to hear from an actual user. After searching through numerous reviews, here are a few that caught our eye:
Louise Robinson, Reviewed December 1st 2014
“I read reviews online all the time, and – as someone who works in PR – I always wonder if they’re planted comments. I can guarantee this is not!
I started drinking Skinade a few months ago and I cannot overemphasise how happy I am with the results. My skin was never terrible, but I did suffer from ‘hormonal’ flare ups – large spots on my lower face/ chin in particular. Not anymore.
I am absolutely delighted with the results I have seen. My skin is glowing – happy skin! And I am recommending it to anyone who will listen! Delighted.”
Emily Dillon Reviewed November 16th 2014
“The first time I tried skin aid it made a visible difference but the second batch I got didn’t seem to make any improvements at all. Was really disappointed as it had worked miracles before. Based on the latest batch I doubt I can justify the expense again.”
Laura Sinclair, reviewed July 30th 2014
“I’ve had terrible skin and had really bad Psoriasis for years now and I am due to get married this summer and had been stressing out about my skin as wanted a Bridal glow. So I seen skinade on twitter and thought I would give it a go. All I can say is wow it’s made me skin on my face glowing and my Psoriasis all over my body so much better I don’t have to use harsh creams no more wow! anyone who is thinking of getting this product should done right away best money I’ve ever spent.”
Daria, Reviewed on August 24th 2014
“My deeper wrinkles have begun to iron themselves out (have only be using for just about a month) and my skin has also begun to develop a ‘glow’. It’s certainly not as dry as it used to be, I have a medical condition which means I have difficulty processing Vitamin B complex and Skinade seems to be helping with that enormously. Looking forward to seeing what my skin looks like in a few more months.”

“I’ve definitely seems results since I started using Skinade, you need to use it for a good month though before you start noticing.
However, it does taste a little sickly and I find I’m throwing away three fingers at the end of the bottle each time. I’d prefer a more concentrated bottle that you can swallow in just a couple of gulps.
Well worth the money, my skin is clear, oil free and any wrinkles I did have emerging (though not many as I’m 24) have vanished.”

Like most nutritional drinks, Skinade has a specific taste. While Skinade describes it as “natural flavours of peach and mangosteen”, the drink has a strong citrus taste that may be pleasant for some. However, it can remind others of taking medication (Vitamin C powders or supplements).
One client describes the taste as “sweet and sickly”. We aren’t sure it tastes that wonderful, but maybe it’s just us 🙂
Mixing Skinade in smoothies or other preferred drinks will help mask the taste for those who aren’t fond of it.
Where can you buy Skinade?
Skinade can be purchased online on the brand’s website www.skinade.com/shop.html
The are couple of discount codes available right now:
1) 5 FREE bottles of Skinade with ANY order – use discount code TRYSKINADE (click here to activate)
2) FREE shipping if ordering from the USA. Please use code: FSUSA15 (remember, USA only!)
How to use this code? When the customer has entered the code, they will need to tick the box which says ‘free shipping’ at the checkout.
Skinade also offers travel kits (available here) for those who travel frequently. The Skinade formula is packaged in 15ml sachets which are mixed with half a glass of water.
Not only is this an easier option for travel, but also ensures freshness of the product. In a few reviews, clients revealed they received bottles that were open, rancid, or had spilled.
The Skinade skincare drink is an innovative product with satisfied customers. Although customers have seen dramatic results, these kinds of drinks aren’t 100% backed by scientists.
If you’re someone who includes, or wants to include vitamins in your daily routine, consuming a drink may be more beneficial. The Skinade collagen drink contains so many vitamins and nutrients that you’d have to take about 20 vitamins to compensate (as if pills aren’t already hard to swallow)! Vitamins are also very hard for the body to digest. Once they enter the body, they will most likely pass before the body can reap their benefits. This is because the body only absorbs about 35% of benefits in a tablet as compared to 85% in a drink.
The Skinade brand admits their product works best with a holistic approach. Consuming healthier foods, more water, and less alcohol are just a few things the brand suggests for best results. To maintain results, you must continue to use this product since the body naturally loses about 1% of collagen each and every year!
Although Skinade can deliver small results in as early as 5 days, most consumers don’t notice real results until around week 7. It is therefore best to opt for a 60 day supply.
We recommend you buy Skinade only from the official website: www.skinade.com
Great review, thanks guys. Always fab to find new products that work xx
I ordered a box last November to be ready for Xmas and new year and I couldn’t have been happier with it, my skin looked really good.
I have to agree with the review and the conclusion that you should use it for at least 5-6 weeks before you start seeing real results. I bought 60 bottles and ONLY after about 4-5 weeks I started seeing any results. But once the real effects kicked in I was well impressed.
Hi. Is Skinade collagen drink suitable for men or are they only for women?
Thanks for getting in touch.
Yes, Skinade can be taken both by men and women.
All the best,
Team Skin Care Watchdog
If you start Skinade drink & decide to stop after a few months- what happens?
Also can you take it every other day instead of every day?
Thanks for getting in touch.
If that happened then the collagen in your skin would start to decrease and your skin would go back to as it was at the beginning. Unfortunately collagen drinks are not a magic potion to reduce wrinkles forever, so the only way around it is to keep using them.
We are actually going to publish another collagen drink review early next week. We’ve been testing it for the past month, and we are really happy with it, and it’s a lot cheaper than Skinade. So please do check back for that review.
Have a nice weekend,
Hi I’d like to hear more about the alternative drink as skinaid is too expensive for me.
Can vegan consume skinade.
Thanks for getting in touch.
All collagen drinks contain either bovine or marine collagen, unfortunately.
Any news on the new cheaper version that you mention above. Would love to read the review before buying an;ything
