Imedeen is a shellfish product. If you are allergic to shellfish/seafood, you might want to steer clear of Imeedeen. But I've heard from my aunts that Imedeen really works...

But I also heard that even Imedeen works wonders but it is only when you're still on it. Once you got off it, the skin condition and health will deteriorate very fast :unsure: :angry: That is why despite being the very "vain" person that I am (hee hee :P), I'm still very hesitant to try oral beauty supplements.

i have a fren who works in Imedeen company before. Asked her on the prod. Seems that product nothing to shout about. But heard many relatives who take also say can see results...but can't stop....once you stop...gone case. But that time when they take it also not very impressive results leh.....

for collagen, I have taken Total image and Etsu one. But don know how effective. As it is claimed that only bovine collagen can be absorbed by our body. Last time I also took Gamat Jelly and also applied collagen cream. So that time really see results that even my MIL noticed it so well. But I really dunno where does the credit belongs.

Etsu mask is good but too difficult to remove <_<

My auntie who is in her fifties are taking imedeen. He facial skin is much better and tighter than mine! So smooth and glowing! You wouldn't know she is in her fifties. Me, on the other hand ....:( I think imedeen really helps her. But I also think staying in a less polluted place with fresh air and good cold weather helps her also. She stays in Cameron Highlands. Come to think of it, I used to stay in Cameron Highlands also but why didn't I have such smooth and tight skin?

I would say it is safer to take collagen. Its found in our body too. So once you stop no side effect like your skin really go down the drain after stopping one. Because I tried it before.

HiHi,
I'm a retail pharmacist. I sell Imedeen, Estime, Collagen and all sorts. It's true, there's really not much to shout about Imedeen. Estime is slightly better as it has sun protection. But from customer response the most effective is still Collagen as it works the fastest and most direct.

As for the thing about skin getting bad after not taking supplements, it's actually because our skin deteriorates as we age. But if we supplement it, we can maintain or even improve this condition. So, our skin do not age with time now. But whe you stop the supplement, imagine how your skin is suddenly deprived of nutrition! That's why it deteriorates back to it's current age. If you have been taking a supplement at 25yo and your skin is maintained at that youthful level and you stop for some time at 30, it goes to 30yo skin, but slightly better. So, you see, it's not the thing ruining the skin.

Personally i've taken Estime and total image collagen and used the Etsu mask. I agree that the mask is really difficult to remove and beware of getting it near your eyes. For Estime, it took more than a month b4 I noticed results. I didn't take Imedeen cos it's more costly and it didn't have sun protection. But collagen was terrific, my face was less oily and my pores shrinked within 10 days. I've tried two brands - total image and the newest Cozza. Cozza is the best, alot faster but only available in sachet, but luckily it doesn't smell fishy like Etsu. But i'm not sure if u could get that Cozza thing everywhere yet cos it's really new. Actually I just started selling it like 3 months ago but customer response is ++++!! So my test drive result with it was A+++ smile.gif

thanks for this thread... very useful.

What's the best age to start taking oral supplements? I am 27 this year. When I was 26 start to notice the skin on the face not very elastic... even a beautician (who i see once a year) said so.

Hi

Do not feel disheartened. You can try to do a search on the internet for Dunaliella Soft capsules which is anti-oxidant and has anti aging effect. No worries to take it in long run as I personally use the product for many years and so far very good. Slow down the aging process even though we cannot stop it.

You can start to recover internally and then externally can consider Miho anti aging series. Do an internet search for miho marigold lotion, miho marigold foam. This is really fantastic especially the miho marigold toner which helps to close up face pores.

Hope the above helps ohmy.gif

Hi, I've started consume Imedeen 2 months ago. I reduce the capsule taken times from twice each to one each due to the doubtness and side effect that it might change in me(of cuz, abit pricy for me) I did consult one of the pharmacist regarding Imedeen, Estime and Etsu. Frightening to know Imedeen might bring the side effect likes gain weight.I already taken the Imedeen almost 2 months but I still couldnt discover the effect, was it because I'm still under 30s, that's why I hardly find the ageing sign? Estime is less costly compared to Imedeen and have sun protecton priviledge. Etsu is like a new generation technology brought in to M'sia lately.Younger female would be more acceptable to this product. It has sun protection tech too. However, it's more expensive. I'm thinking to consume Estime after I finished Imedeen moreover, the Pharmacist would give me discount biggrin.gif

Hi missy28,

For me, I consume protein powder and Bio-C. Protein is very important for cell growth. And Bio-C for collagen synthesis. On top of that, I do DIY facial 'Gua Sa' at home. In short, I actually take care my skin using the internal (supplements) and external (gua sa) method. The result is great and I stay fresh and bright! biggrin.gif

Hi Bliac89!

I'm currently using Roche's Vitamin C+ Collagen injections and it's doing wonders for my skin.
Maybe you should try it. After using it for 2 months, I've realized that the elasticity of my skin has improved,
and my face has gotten fairer. Even my legs and arm, which are darker than my face
has lightened.

Hello sugarbaby_82, you may also want to try out trueface essence ultra from Nu SKin, this prodt was researched for 17 years, it contain ethocyn that helps to increase the level of elastin. And studies shows that if you use twice daily for 8 weeks, your elasticity will increase by 88%! I mean, there's no harm trying especially when they can claim such improvements. My mum tried them and it really help her skin a lot..especially along the jawline. Just give yourself a chance , use it for 2 mths and observe! you can email me for more details. Another great prodt is the galvanic spa. U can see facelift in just 10 mins!

Hi there girls.

I'm new to collagen and I've read up a few articles that collagen related products can help tighten up the skin better.
Any recommendation on which product to use? There are too many out there in the market.
