Since last week I’ve been consuming DHC Collagen Beauty 7000 that I had since the official launch last month. At first I have no intention of reviewing this collagen drink but after half way through the box I decided to pen down my thought on this for own reference in the future.
Do you know what DHC stands for? No right? Me too. I always thought DHC doesn’t have a specific meaning to it but I found out that DHC stands for “Daigaku Honyaku Center” which began as an educational translation company in Japan in 1972 and later on became a leading provider of educational business materials. Now, DHC Corporation is Japan’s No. 1 direct skincare company. It is a leading direct-to-consumer provider of beauty products, including skincare, body care and makeup items in S.E.A. DHC in Malaysia as we know only available exclusively at Watsons outlet. We also know DHC as skin care but not others. That was until last month when Watsons Malaysia launched an oral beauty supplement drink – DHC Collagen Beauty 7000.
DHC Collagen Beauty 7000 is retailing for RM129 per box. If you are lucky you can spot a RM199 for 2 boxes promotion in January and from February until March 2013 Watsons is having another promo of RM109.65 (after 15% discount). This promo will valid from 21st February until 25th March 2013.
The one that I had has another box inside. As this product is made and imported from Japan, the original printing on the box is all in Japanese. So I guess DHC Malaysia make another box with English wording on it just for us. Rest assured. The design for both box is the same. It’s just a box.
In a box there’s only 10 bottles of the collagen drink and each bottle is at 50ml. As you can see I’ve gone through 6 bottles before I took this picture which explains the missing bottles. I didn’t have any intention of writing about this product at the beginning so I started drinking every night before sleep. I changed my mind after seeing some different on my skin. I’ll explain below. Picture browser please read!
The bottle as you’ve guess is in pink. Same with the box. The printing on the bottle however is still Japanese. Remember it’s imported from Japan right?
The aluminium cap doesn’t completely comes off after twisting. Somehow it’s still stuck with the excess aluminium at the bottom. For convenience…I just leave the cap dangling while holding it with 2 fingers as I’m taking a sip.
Unlike Brand’s InnerShine Ruby Collagen Drink I don’t chill the drink prior. Maybe because it’s in my room and it doesn’t taste particularly sour without chill so I don’t bother that much. But of course it will taste better if chilled. I’m just too lazy to do so. Feel free to chill yours!
It is recommended to drink this at night before sleep. Now…I have bad experience of insomnia if I took beauty collagen drink at night and not forgetting the bad temper the next day due to lack of sleep so no doubt I was a bit skeptical to take this at night. But since Cheesie and Audrey is doing it, I did it too. Surprisingly I fell asleep very easily and slept like a baby until the next morning. There was no break out or whatsoever like others too.
The only thing that gave me goose bump is the taste. Don’t get me wrong, it taste good all thanks to muscat grape juice and honey for the freshness taste but beauty collagen drink can never run far away from fish collagen. That’s what every collagen drink contain which explains the slight fishy taste. I’m someone who can’t take fishy taste so even just a tiny bit will trigger my senses. This one is just a little. Not that bad cause you will finish a bottle in 2 big gulp or 3 smaller gulp :). During the launch I sampled a chilled bottle and it doesn’t even have the fishy taste. So if you are someone who is as sensitive as me, you can still be able to drink this down but chill it first.
DHC Collagen Beauty 7000 is a high quality collagen drink that allows you to consume 7,000 mgs of fish derived collagen in one bottle. Besides that ingredients like Vitamin C and other essential ingredients are also added to enhance its efficiency to promote collagen synthesis. If you take this DHC Collagen Beauty 7000 every night before going to bed for 3 consecutive months skin elasticity will increased by 26% and up to 46% in skin moisture.
Here’s the ingredient list for those that are interested.
What changes my mind to
pen type down a review is after I saw how much better my skin looks like after just a few days of consuming. I don’t have the Before and After picture for comparison because of a last minute decision so here’s what I think.
I had quite a number of breakout for the past few weeks before that and my face was horrible. Somehow after consuming this beauty drink my face somewhat looks smoother and even makeup stays on beautifully. I believe DHC Collagen Beauty 7000 helped the inner of my skin to speed the healing process. This beauty drink boost the benefit of all the topical skin care I applied because previously I don’t see any changes but after drinking this everything on my face heal twice the speed. As I only had just one box I can’t tell you exactly if this will heal all the acne scars completely (most popular question) although without a doubt I managed to lighten most of the acne scars on my face in a faster speed. If I’m willing to restock this product and top it up with topical skin care for long term…I believe my skin will be at a much more beter state.
