Fancy a collagen supplement, but not sure which format is best for you? Well, keep calm, carry on, and read about the most brilliant ingestible collagen supplements, straight from “Jolly Olde England.”

Revive Collagen  partnered with Beautytap’s diverse community of certified beauty professionals for trusted, detailed, unpaid reviews around some of their innovative skincare products. We are sharing this post with you as part of this collaboration and to learn more about their brand. All opinions are our own and are not influenced by Revive Collagen. Thank you for your support.


Ever since my younger days, I have had a massive affinity for all things that existed “across the pond.” I mean, since grade school, my deep love for The Smiths and the Pope of Mope, Morrissey, has slowly grown into full blown obsession, culminating in a Beatlemania moment when I saw a live performance for the first time in 2003. The 30-year-old me sung along to every song, loud and off key, and hung on each word of all the gems I had memorized in my black and white checkerboard wall-papered high school bedroom; and the 15-year-old me bawled like a baby. 


Singer, actress, radio host and TV personality Amanda Holden is Revive Collagen's brand ambassador.


So, when I happened upon Revive Collagen after trying to find a collagen supplement that is not in pill form, I thought, ok, this sounds amazing – a drinkable collagen supplement! But when I discovered it was manufactured in Great Britain? Abso-bloody-lutely! I was immediately intrigued; and let me tell you, Revive Collagen supplements are more than just fabulous. They are completely brilliant.


Many Desirable Benefits


So why collagen supplements, you ask? First, let us talk about what collagen is, and why we need to have it supplemented in our lives. Collagen, naturally occurring in our bodies, is the sticky tape that holds our connective tissue together. Over our lifetime, collagen production slowly dips, and this decrease manifests in our bodies in the form of joint pain, lines, wrinkles, and diminished elasticity in skin. 


Collagen supplements can not only minimize lines and wrinkles and give skin a youthful bounce, but collagen can also positively impact our bone density, minimize atherosclerosis, and positively impact hair and nails, imparting strength and enhanced growth. Many of the supplements on the market are in powdered form, and usually from cow or chicken sources. While there are various powdered forms on the market, liquid ingestible forms are said to be best, as actual absorption of nutrients and key ingredients are highest in this form; studies have shown that in liquid suspensions, absorption of nutrients hover well over 75%.

Research Backed


Enter Revive Collagen; developed by actor, singer, radio, and television personality supreme Samantha Wiers after discovering the benefits of ingestible collagen on her recurring acne issue. Revive Collagen is a ready to drink formula that is portable and utilizes marine based collagen, as opposed to the traditional bovine sources. Samantha, her business partner John Bailey, and their team have done years of research and development to create a formula that is bursting at the seams with high quality collagen, sourced and produced in Britain; this means not only is quality uncompromised, but safety in production is a high priority as well. In addition, the marine collagen used is ethically sourced, and there is absolutely no animal testing used with the product.


Powerful Formulations


Formulas available today included the classic Revive Collagen formula, which boasts 8500 mg of hydrolyzed collagen, and Revive’s Enhanced Plus, which offers a whopping 10,000 mg of hydrolyzed collagen, in addition to Vitamins B6 and B12 (for immune and nervous system support), hydrolyzed keratin (for overall hair health) and Vitamins C and D (to assist in absorption and give skin a bright, glowy look). In addition, the sachets are all made of completely recyclable materials, so Wiers and her team have also taken our environment into consideration. 


Finally, the individual sachets are durable and completely portable; this makes them an ideal option for your workout bag or pocketbook, giving us high quality liquid collagen supplements on the go. With all these titillating selling points, you must be thinking, “but Randi, how did the supplements fair for you?” Quite lovely, mates, quite lovely indeed.


Let us start with the aesthetics, shall we? The sachets arrived in a beautiful presentation box (think Rowan Atkinson in Love Actually type packaging, minus the holly sprig and such), a 28-day supply divided between two individual smaller boxes. Designed in two different shades of a lovely mauve, the packaging easily distinguishes the Enhance Plus supply from the classic Revive formula. Revive states they have improved the taste of the formulas, boasting an all-natural tropical flavor for the Enhanced Plus and citrus for the classic formulation. News flash - I enjoyed both flavors and happily ingested the magical elixir daily straight from the sachet, with no need of dilution in water or other liquid which you can do as well - easy peasy!

Results You Can See and Feel


But lovies, the impact that this liquid gold had on my hair, body, and skin? Nothing short of exceptional. In reading the materials, Revive states to expect visible results within 6 to 8 weeks of usage, but I started feeling and seeing the effects within 12-14 days. Living in the Pacific Northwest, home of all things coffee, I relied on a frothy latte or two DAILY to give me the pep to make it through the day; but after a few short weeks of taking the Enhance Plus variety, I had consistent energy and focus throughout the day, sans coffee. 


My hair has always been a challenge for me; I have kept it short, because even though I have a lot of it, my locks are fine and lackluster. But they have now been transformed - the boost of keratin from the Enhanced Plus formula has imparted shine and texture; not to mention length. But, my friends, the piece de resistance? My skin! These amazing sachets and their 10,000 mg of collagen superpower have transformed my skin from borderline dry, blah, and blemished (thanks to the traumatic trifecta of winter weather, inside heaters and menstruation) to smooth, refined and glowing - fine lines have dissipated and I love the dewy bounce that my skin possesses. 


Who would have thought that all of this would come from a sweet little sachet you drink once a day? Believe it, baby. This British bounty is divine. So, follow the lead of many clever Brits before us and indulge in Revive, the most smashing beauty regimen on this (and the other) side of the pond! 


Cheers, babes!
