Reserveage Nutrition Collagen Replenish Powder Review

This product was provided by Reserveage Nutrition and iHerb free of charge for my honest review.

There's been a lot of buzz about collagen products in recent years, and for good reason! There are a plethora of health & beauty benefits from ingesting collagen, ranging from improved hair, skin, and nails to joint health, gut health and much more! I just wish I had been informed of the benefits of collagen years ago!

Featured Product:
(2.75oz/ 78g) $16.31 USD

Reserveage Nutrition Collagen Replenish Powder features Deluxe Peptide Plus™ which is specially formulated to provide nutrients for smooth, supple, nourished skin.

Collagen comes in many forms and from various sources. Over the last year, I've tried many forms and sources of collagen. Many collagen supplements taste horrible and/or don't mix into drinks very well. Read on to learn more about Reserveage Collagen Powder...

My Experience:
What I love about Reserveage collagen is that it's easy to take, it's completely tasteless, and mixes in completely with my morning smoothies. It doesn't change the texture at all! Plus, it has the added benefits of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C.

After using this product daily for just over 3 weeks, I have noticed increased hydration in my skin, most of my dry patches are gone! The most notable improvement is the disappearance of tiny bumps that were under my skin (I think they are called Milia). They have been there for so long I don't even remember when they formed. These pesky tiny bumps were under my skin below my right eye and above my left cheekbone. Despite using Retin-A and good skincare, nothing would get rid of these annoying bumps. The other day, I suddenly noticed that all but one of these bumps were gone! They were not only annoying to feel but they were unsightly and makeup made them appear worse! I cannot be happier that these bumps are gone (except for one). I really didn't want to have to undergo any pricey laser treatments etc. I can only attribute their disappearance to this collagen powder as I haven't tried any other treatments or special skincare. 

I have also noticed less shedding of my hair, it hasn't stopped completely but it is definitely less. I cannot say that I notice fewer wrinkles, although I mainly have crows feet. I would need more time to assess whether or not this product would improve my wrinkles. 

I am more than pleased with my results so far, especially since the little bumps under my skin have all but disappeared. I can't wait to see the results after continued use of this product.

My go-to morning smoothie:

NEW! Live Clean Mineral Clay Rebalancing Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Live Clean always has the most innovative solutions to our beauty dilemmas! 🙆

If you suffer from oily roots and dry ends like I do, you should really check out their brand new Mineral Clay Rebalancing Shampoo and Conditioner. They are the perfect solution to oily roots and dry ends. This is something I suffer from as I don't wash my hair every day and I also bleach and colour my hair so the ends are very dry and damaged!  

These products combine kaolin, montmorillonite, and bentonite clays. These clays are known for their cleansing, oil absorbing, and stimulating properties. They've added organic witch hazel, apple cider, tea tree and green tea to purify. Plus Vitamin E and B5 to moisturize! 💦 

Live Clean Mineral Clay Rebalancing Shampoo 350 mL
suggested retail: $7.49 - $7.99 

Gently cleanses, removing build-up at the scalp and hydrating dry ends
This shampoo has an interesting texture due to the clay. It glides through the hair and lathers up beautifully. It has a light scent and cleans my hair in one shot. I don't need to lather up a second time like I do with some other shampoos. I like to focus the shampoo on my roots as the rinsing process will carry the product through the rest of my hair. My hair is left super clean yet hydrated and my hair doesn't even tangle!

Live Clean Mineral Clay Rebalancing Conditioner 350 mL
suggested retail: $7.49 - $7.99 

Hydrates, detoxifies and moisturizes dry ends
The conditioner is also very lightly scented. I focus it on the ends of my hair to mid-shaft. My bleached and dry hair is left super soft and manageable, and tangle free.

I found that these products do exactly what they claim! My oily roots and dry ends are both banished! I'm not sure how they came up with this formula that tackles both issues with one product, but they really do work. I can go an extra day or two without washing my hair since my roots are not oily. Plus, my ends are hydrated. I was actually able to blow dry my hair with a paddle brush and I didn't have to follow up with a flat iron. That is virtually unheard of with my dry, brittle, and frizzy hair. I usually need a flat iron or I have to take a lot of time round brushing while I blow dry.

My normally tangly hair was super easy to manage and didn't tangle at all! My hair comes out clean without being stripped and it's hydrated without being heavy.

Like all Live Clean products these are free of harsh chemicals, made with plant-based ingredients, sulfate free, silicone free, paraben free, vegan, and cruelty free! 

These are absolute winning products that I highly recommend!

Look for these at your local Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, and
