But thanks to Hishop, I got the chance to try out the Ruby Aura Radiant-perfection Collagen Drink for the first time! Whee~ Was really anticipating the arrival of the parcel cos I'm curious how a collagen drink tastes like.
What is collagen?
According to Hishop, collagen is a gelatin fiber that acts as a combination tissue in the skin, bone, ligaments, and cartilage. It is a naturally occuring protein and makes up 30% of the protein in the body, and keeps skin smooth and youthful. As we age, collagen production slows down, resulting in wrinkles, dry or saggy skin. WHUUUTT :o
What is Ruby Aura?
Ruby Aura is the first Brightening Collagen Drink that defines a whitening treatment injection. Using Eastern and Western science, it promises results in just five days! Ruby Aura is made of mainly fruit and vitamins extract such as strawberry, peach and pomegranate powder for Vitamin C boost, grapeseed extract for Vitamin E dose, tomato extract which acts as an antioxidant and other amazing ingredients!
It is said to be good for improving skin brightness and radiance, act as an antixidant and anti-aging product, increase skin elasticity and whiten skin. People who need it are those who frequently sit in front of the computer, wears makeup everyday, sleeps late and in an air-conditioned room and is frequently stressed.
shoots, sounds like me! :s
Is it just me or is the rainbow effect on the box super pretty!

Ruby Aura is also the Best Selling Collagen Drink in Korea!
Each box contains 12g x 10 sachets of Ruby Aura drink for easy consumption.
It comes in the form of very fine whitish-pinkish powder that dissolves readily in water.
My skin condition lately- dry and kinda dull. And argh, so many pimples!! Result of sleeping late..
Directions for use:
Prepare 100ml of room temperature water in a shaker.
I thought we were supposed to make a full glass but nooo, apparently it's more of a concentrated solution?
Mix 1 sachet of Ruby Aura into the shaker.
Shake shake shake shake!
why the white powder turned red dy?
Consume your drink.
noob face here
You could mix the powder in a glass too instead of using a shaker!
The drink tastes and smells sweet and sourish. I didn't like it at first but after drinking it a few more times, I'm ok with it now. The taste kinda reminds me of Ribena or glucose drink now! Just sour-er. But I gotta admit, the preparation process is easy. I like the berry taste and if 100ml is like too little water for you, I guess you could add more to make it less saturated or sour..
10 sachets means I finished consuming the drinks in 5 days as we are supposed to drink it twice daily (1 before breakfast and 1 before bedtime). Honestly, I don't see much improvement in my skin condition. Maybe just that my pimples are less visible/ less red now. It did a good job of brightening but as for retaining moisture and rejuvenating skin, it's hard to tell as my toner and moisturiser does help to moisturise my skin as well.
One thing I did realise though, is that I feel more energetic even though I'm sleeping about 5 hours daily only. I read online that it's because the collagen is broken down into energy and absorbed by the body, not the skin. Maybe that's why? For now, I would rate the product a 6/10. The instructions say to consume it for 19 days and more, so I guess I will need to continue drinking it to see more prominent results.
