Hi, remember about that time when I told you how much my skin sucks? Which I probably moan about at least once week. Lolz sorry not sorry.
Well, I was recently offered to try a product that could help improve my skin. Advanced Skin Care by LQ Liquid Health is a supplement that you drink daily.
It contains things like marine collagen, which is the most abundant, naturally occurring protein in our bodies, it has zinc and biotin to help the maintenance of normal skin, aloe vera which also helps maintain healthy skin alongside other vitamins and minerals to promote healthy skin.
I was sent 30 of these, after trying 10 of them I realised that it contains marine collagen. Or should I say that I realised that marine collagen actually is. It’s something that is derived from the scales of fish.
Um. I’m a vegetarian. I’ve been drinking dead fish. I want to die.
I am seriously the biggest idiot in the world, it didn’t cross my mind to check the ingredients. This is almost as bad as the time I got drunk and ordered a pizza with chicken on it and didn’t realise until I bit into it.
POLLO MEANS CHICKEN KIDS. I didn’t remember that when I was drunk. Like I said, idiot.
It even says MARINE COLLAGEN on it but for some reason, I imagined it was something extracted from seaweed or something.
On that note, let’s look at the ingredients, shall we?
Water, marine hydrolysed collagen (fish), orange concentrated juice, acerola concentrated juice containing vitamin C, acerola natural flavour, acidity regualator: citric acid, orange natural flavour, grape extract (Vitis vinifera) containing resveratrol, turmeric rhizome extract (Curcume longa), sodium hyaluronate, preservative: potassium sorbate, Aloe vera concentrated gel, zinc gluconate, N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, sweetner: sucralose, choline-stablised orthosilic acid, nicotinamide (vitamin B3), sodium selenate, retinyl acetate (vitamin A), calcium pantothenate (vitamin B5), biotin (vitamin B7).
Obviously, I couldn’t finish this whole review with my personal experience with it, which is a pity as I was really excited to try it so still wanted to write about it, think of this more of a ‘wish list’ post. If you have skin problems like ache, psoriasis or eczema, this might be for you.
But if you’re not a vegetarian or vegan. Then it’s totally not for you.
