REVIEW: SkinPep® Collagen Re-Nu Liquid Shot Sachet UPDATED
I will hold my hands up and admit I am totally biased towards collagen drink supplements. This is based solely on the fact that I can actually see a visible difference after drinking the shots for a few weeks.
Yes, I’m well aware of a vast number of scientists and skin care experts claim that collagen drink supplements cannot possibly work, because the body is unable to absorb collagen into the blood stream and consumers are just wasting their money.
But the thing is…
Last year the global market in collagen drinks was worth over £40billion – DataMonitor
So someone’s buying them.

Our skin is made of collagen. As we age, collagen production drops off and skin sags because it gets thinner, weaker, drier, and less resilient, or pliable. This is directly linked to amino acid content. Certain amino acids in the skin’s structure, like glycine, proline, hydroproline, and alanine – decrease with age and bad diet.
SkinPep® Collagen Re Nu® Liquid Shots contains all of the above essential amino acids, and embraces the latest scientific findings. Every day we have customers calling to tell us how Collagen Shots have improved their skin, hair and nails.
- Add 1-2 scoops of collagen granules to an empty glass.
- Slowly add chilled water while stirring briskly with a teaspoon.
- Let the liquid settle for 1-2 minutes, it will go completely clear and no lumps will be present & drink.
- For best absorption; consume 1 full serving daily on an empty stomach or 1 hour before your main meal or 2 hours before taking a protein supplement.
How to enhance the flavour: Add a little 50% fruit juice cordial or Pure Fruit Juice to sweeten. Many customers report that blackcurrant, mango and apple juice is the best.
Once water is added to this drink mix it can be stored in a fridge however it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Drinking at least 1 – 1.5 litres of water per day during your programme is recommended for best results and optimal skin hydration.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND RE-NU LIQUID SHOT
Numerous clinical studies that indicate when 10g of marine collagen is consumed daily with the 50mg of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, the body breaks down the protein in the collagen in to its amino acid components.
SkinPep Collagen Re-Nu Liquid Shotdrink is rich is Proline, Hydroxy Proline and Glycine approx 20%. This feeds the fibro blast cell in the skin, hair, nails joints and bones to increase production.
Milk, meat and fish only contains less than 1% of these key amino acid therefore Re-Nu collagen drink can deliver 20 times more of these key collagen building nutrients with only 40 calories per serving.

THE SKINPEP COLLAGEN RE-NU 30 DAY CHALLENGE
These are video testimonials from women who used the drink for 30 days. They talk about their real life experiences and the results of their before and after skin analysis which showed real improvements. The questions posed here are the ones I’ll be asking my reviewer.
Consumers have reported improvements in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, psoriasis and eczema, as well as an improvement in the condition of their hair, nails and more supple joints. For me, the first sign is an improvement in my nails.
In the first 45 – 90 minutes, body goes into alpha sleep mode; this is a perfect period that your body can use the collagen at the optimum level. Your body produces amino acids which are the building blocks of your body, they accelerate the absorption rate of collagen into body.
Because I’m reviewing other skin care products and I don’t want to crossover the findings, I’ve passed the 30 day trial pack to another reviewer, Karen. She’s starting the trial today and will come back to me in 30 days with the results. I’ve asked her to keep a diary and note down the condition of her hair, skin and nails every week.

UPDATE: JULY 2015
I spoke to Karen recently about her results.
Q1: How easy was it to prepare the drink?
I only used cold water. When the drink was first mixed up with a fork, there were lots of tiny balls of powder floating around on the top and on the sides of the glass. I thought I would have put it through a strainer. But when you let the drink settle for a couple of minutes, it turns a clear orange colour, and they’ve dissolved completely.
Q2: How did it taste?
Like very diluted, mildly blackcurrant flavoured water. It was pleasant and there was no need to mix it with juice to disguise the flavour. One thing I did notice, is that it doesn’t smell that great in the sachet, there’s a strong metallic smell, but that doesn’t come through to the drink.
Q3: Did you experience any side effects?
Q4: Any physical changes?
I kept a diary to note changes to my hair, skin and nails. There were no changes for the first two and a half weeks.
By the middle of week three, I noted down that my nails were starting to grow (this is always the first sign for me too when I’m taking collagen supplements), and were not so brittle or breaking as much as they used to. The hangnails had gone completely.
Also in week three, I felt my hair was easier to manage with less tangles at the ends.
I couldn’t tell if there was a big difference to the skin on my face. I think maybe I would have to have trailed this for longer.
The biggest and best, unexpected result, was on my hands and on the inside of my arms where I suffer from eczema outbreaks.
The skin wasn’t as dry, tight or scaly as it usually is. I also noticed that I didn’t itch as much during the night, because my arms weren’t bleeding by the morning as sometimes happens with a particular bad flare up.
Q5: Would you use this supplement again and/or recommend it to other people?
Yes I would. Mainly because of the eczema relief I experienced. It also meant that because my skin was less raw, I was able to cut down my use of corticosteroid ointment. I was more comfortable at night and I slept better.
