The night gelly has a semi transparent gel texture. Also it produce a nice floral fragrance smell. Should be the smell of Narcissus I supposed. :)

Brand's InnerShine Collagen 5000 Powder (6.3g)
Today review is on Brand's InnerShine Collagen 5000 Powder. This was redeemed from Brand's InnerShine Singapore Facebook page

This collagen 5000 powder although good for health, it don't really taste good by itself. But dissolving in other drinks taste perfectly fine. To me, I still prefer Brand's InnerShine Ruby Collagen. Taste better and more convenient than Brand's InnerShine Collagen 5000 Powder.

Can be added to 250ml of water, milk, soy milk, fruit juice or other beverages. Can also be added to soups, porridge or cereal meals. Stir gently until fully dissolved.

Each sachet must be used immediately after opening.


My Review
Brand's InnerShine Collagen 5000 Powder came in small sachet that is pretty convenient to bring around. 
Small sachet.
The powder itself does not give off any smell. 
Collagen 5000 powder
In order to taste the original collagen drink, I dissolve it in plain water. The powder is really easy to dissolve. 
Collagen powder drink mix in plain water.
The drink itself does not smell nice and it taste funny too. Not nice to drink really. 

Then I decided to mix it with other drink to see if it will be better. I mix the powder into Ribena and its so much better. No more funny taste.

As for effectiveness, well, I only taste 1 sample sachet. So its not really fair for me to judge its effectiveness. 

Overall, this collagen 5000 powder although good for health, it don't really taste good by itself. But dissolving in other drinks taste perfectly fine. To me, I still prefer Brand's InnerShine Ruby Collagen. Taste better and more convenient than Brand's InnerShine Collagen 5000 Powder.

The sample size product came in a small container with instruction booklet.

How the EX Cream looks like.
The EX cream also do not have any fragrance smell and its not oily and not sticky.
Applying the EX Cream.
The EX cream contain gold flakes. So I actually need to massage to let my skin absorb them. But its being absorbed easily. :)

Looking at the brochure, it was stated that its all natural. So I actually expected it to product more effect. 

However, after using, apart from being able to help my skin stays smooth, I really did not see other significant effect this product do to my skin. In my opinion, its just a normal product to me. Nothing wow about this product.

(Why there is no before and after use image? Well, I really don't see the need to show you a before and after face that look exactly the same with nothing improved. :| )

During application.
I have not heard of this brand and its only after I get this sample that I did a search on this product. Then I realize its actually a well talked about product. But oh boy, its so expensiive!!! 

After using it, yes it is a product that did perform but for the price of it, I really personally feel that it should perform more than that. As there are really products out there that are much more affordable that are capable to perform the same results too. 

Overall this essence prepare my skin for better absorption on my other skin care products. Skin feels smooth and hydrated. Also, my usual irritated skin area feel less irritated too. However its really not an affordable product to me.
