My Review
Both drinks came in a box of 16 bottles. Nicely packed.
16 bottles per box.
Lets not be too long winded. We shall go straight into the review, shall we? Lets start with Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drink.

Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drink
Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drink
This collagen diamond drink is brown in color. This liquid collagen drink is not thick at all.
50ml per bottle.
Brown thin liquid.
One of the best thing I like most about this drink is that it do not have any fishy smell at all. It does smell like plum fruit juice drink to me. 

As per instruction, I drink it chilled and I drink it just before bedtime. 

The second thing I like, no fishy taste. It made my life so much better. It means I just have to open and drink it just like that. No need any mixing with other drinks. :)

The collagen diamond taste sweet with a bit of sour in it. It does taste like some concentrated apple juice to me. Very tasty indeed. :) 

If there is really one bad thing you want me to tell you, it has to be the cap. Maybe its me only. But I really find it hard to open the bottle cap, especially after taking out of the refrigerator. I have to clean it then use extra strength to open it. often, my hands are left red. :(

So how was it? what did I observed? 

After drinking for 6 days, not much of a big different. But I can see that my dark eye circles are lighten a bit. 
Before. (eye area)
After drinking for 6 days. (eye area)
The effect is pretty good. After around 14 days, my skin feels better in terms of hydration. I can also observed that my skin is less dull and tired looking. It is able to maintain its brightness through out the day. After work, my skin still looks hydrated and bright. 
Before. (nose and cheek area)
After drinking for 14 days (nose and cheek area)
So what happened after I finish 1 whole box? While, its able to maintain the hydration, brighter and less dull looking effect as I observed before. I also notice that my skin is smoother. 

Not knowing if its drinking this collagen diamond drink, I also feel that my better skin conditions made my makeup last longer. My skin able to absorb daily skin care products better.

After drinking for 1 month. (smoother looking skin)
Kinohimitsu Collagen Nite Drink
Kinohimitsu Collagen Nite Drink
This collagen nite drink is brown in color. Because of manuka honey, this drink had a much thicker texture. 
50ml bottle
Same as collagen diamond, collagen nite has no fishy smell or taste. 

Collagen Nite drink was given to my brother to drink.

He can smell mango and pineapple fruit. And it taste sweet and a bit sour with light pineapple fruit taste. It is tasty but as my brother do not like pineapple, if can, he really wish to remove the pineapple taste of this drink. :) Hmm, maybe women will like the pineapple taste better. :)
Brown thick liquid.
Thicker coz of manuka honey.
As per instruction, he drink it chilled and before bedtime. I told him to do some observation and tell me what he observed. 

Before giving him, I did not really tell him the details of the effect of this drink. I just tell him that this drink helps him sleep. 

So what did he really observed himself after he drink it?

Well, there is really no cheating here. Without me telling him, he is able to observe 2 things:
  1. Before starting to drink collagen nite, it usually takes an estimated of 20 minutes to 1 hour to fall asleep. (1 hour is only sometimes, not often happen) But after drinking collagen nite drink for just 3 days, he is often able to fall asleep faster, around 15 minutes.

  2. Before starting to drink collagen nite,he is not able to go into deep sleep. If he happened to wake up in the middle of the night, it is hard to go back to sleep. But after drinking collagen nite, he has make friend with deep sleep. :) He is able to sleep till the morning without waking up in the middle of the night. Even if he did wake up in the middle of the night, he is able to go back to sleep easily. 
Besides that, he do feel that his pores are refined too. 

Summary
Overall both Collagen Diamond Drink and Collagen Nite Drink produces excellent results. I definitely recommend these drinks.  

After drinking Collagen Diamond Drink for 1 month, I can see and feel that my skin is more hydrated, less dull and it does brighten up my skin too. This makes my skin less tired looking and more healthy. Also my make up is able to last longer on my skin and skin is able to absorb daily skin care products that I apply better.

After drinking Collagen Nite Drink for 1 month by my brother, it improved his sleeping condition. He is able to fall asleep faster and he experience less sleepless nite. Also according to him, he do see that his pores are more refined. 

So which should you drink? Well personally, if you do have sleep problem, then Collagen Nite is better for you. Otherwise, Collagen Diamond should be good enough for you. :)

After applying, the serum do not feel sticky or oily and it is also pretty light weight. My skin can also easily absorb the serum. :)

My skin also stays soft, smooth and moisturize and the effect lasted pretty long too. :)

One thing I like is that it contain SPF 25 PA++. That means I do no need to apply separate sun protection lotion. Very convenient 2 in 1 lotion. :) 

And one more thing, it is not expensive. The serum only cost S$8.90 for 200ml tube. :)  
After application.
But as to really repairing and restore dry and damage skin, will only need more time to find out. As for me, 24hours after applying to dry and damage skin area did not really make a different to me. But it really did make my other skin area stays moisturize and smooth.
