At this point, I will sound like a broken record talking about the benefits of collagen as it’s in almost all beauty products, We associate collagen with supple, bouncy, and youthful skin. We associate it with anti-aging effects and we are now more or less well versed in how we need collagen to stay youthful. I think we’re more fixated on the beauty benefits because collagen is also linked to better bone health as well as joint health but we care about the skincare benefits more. LifeFood, Unilab’s new supplements brand, has now released its own Collagen Jelly!
Say hello to LifeFood Collagen Jelly (Php693 per box of 7 jellies), which has 2500mg collagen per jelly, plus litchi seed extract to further stimulate collagen, pomegranate essence to brighten skin, and grape skin extract to prevent free radicals from damaging the skin.
What I like about this particular format is that this works really well for office peeps!!! You can just leave a box on your desk and pop one when you’re bored or a bit hungry at your desk. Each sachet is sealed, so you need not worry about ants in your workspace. Versus powders which you need to integrate into a drink or meal, or smoothies which you’d need a shaker tumbler for, this is much simpler. These days, I either take collagen tablets or have these jellies.
When opened, the jelly is brown. When you first bite into it, you’ll get the fishy feeling collagen gives, but after a split second, you’ll start to taste the lychee flavor! It tastes a lot like the lychee jellies we all used to eat as kids (and possibly as adults in the present hahaha), just without the nata. It’s thankfully firm, so it doesn’t disintegrate when you bite into it. There’s also no crazy amount of juice that pops out like regular lychee jellies, so it’s generally a low-mess snack. You’d be able to slowly squeeze the jelly out, take your time biting, and slowly eat the remaining juice in the sachet afterward.
I just can’t get enough collagen and am glad that there’s yet another format to have collagen in! As I mentioned, at present, I have collagen tablets and these jellies. When I get down to buying smoothies again, this’ll be a great compliment to those.
And ah! Before I forget, I just wanna say thanks for the quartz quasha they sent me!!! I always appreciate it when brands send all sorts of tokens alongside the products they’re actually promoting. I think this can help with lymphatic drainage so I’m not too bloated all the time.
Don’t forget to check these out on Shopee!
