Do you know YOUR sunblock does not block out 100% of UV rays? Even if it is a cloudy day, UV rays can also reach our skin and cause those ugly dark pigments to form. I used to laugh at people around me whom carries an umbrella (even when they are just crossing the road), and now I regret not being one of these kiasu people as I see A LOT of freckles appearing on my cheek. *cries*
The scary thing is, you are not spared of these UV rays even when you are indoors. Sun rays still penetrate through glass windows to reach our skin, and more than 50% of UVA rays are the main cause of premature skin again, SAY OMG. So unless you want to look older than your age/peers (hope I didn’t scare you with the above picture! To create your own version of photos, you can use FaceApp and apply the “old” filter to give yourself a reality check), AVOID THESE SNEAKY RAYS AT ALL COST.

In my little attempt to avoid the sun, I have been trying VitaRealm Whitening Collagen drink which contains glutathione. This particular ingredient helps to reduce skin pigmentation, dark spots, and more importantly also aids in liver detoxification. It is basically an easy way to fight aging signs! So if you think I look younger than you, please don’t say that I never share what’s my secret okay.
First impression – In a compact blue box, the VitaRealm Whitening Collagen has multiple benefits like (1) brightening skin (2) increasing luminosity and radiance (3) improving elasticity and firmness (4) boosting skin hydration (5) reducing fine lines and more. Comes in a sleek bottle packaging, each bottle is 50ml, so it is light and portable (if you want to bring it on the go). You’ll be happy to hear that the grape extract did a good job in its attempt to cover the usual “collagen drink” taste! It is not cloyingly sweet, I like that it is smooth to drink but to be honest, it still has the usual collagen drink aftertaste. In my opinion, collagen drinks are a bit of an acquired taste; don’t expect that it will taste exactly like fruit juice. Overall taste – 3/5
Gentle tip: the item taste better when chilled. I usually drink it before bed too. You can also choose to mix this with some strong-flavored fruit juice so that it can cover the collagen taste.
Thoughts and feeling during the process – Dull skin, pigmentation and aging skin are common skin concerns that become more noticeable as we age. These can be caused by exposure to sunlight, environmental pollution and even poor diet habits. Hence, many people start turning to collagen. Collagen has many benefits (not just for our skin) but also to our body, bones and skin. The VitaRealm Whitening Collagen is perfect for individuals whom want the EASIEST way to get beautiful and radiant skin. As it doesn’t cost a lot to try, this is a super fuss-free way to replenish our body with collagen!
As work has been hectic this period, I am also happy that this particular product helps my skin look SO MUCH BRIGHTER!! I realized some of my pimple marks also seemed to be smaller as collagen is supposed to help heal and regenerate the skin cell too. I am pleasantly surprised with the obvious brightening effect too!
Additional information – As VitaRealm has 3 different colours – (1) Blue: Whitening Collagen (helps to brighten skin, even out skin tone, lighten dark pigments), (2) Pink (Balances sebum production, heal acne and scars) and (3) Purple (Hydrates and firms skin, reduces sugar induced skin damages (wrinkles, fine lines)), you can pick the one based on your beauty colour!
To identify your beauty color from skin concerns, here is the guideline - Blue: Dull skin tone, dry skin, uneven skin tone, dark pigments - Pink: Sensitive skin, troubled skin, acne-prone skin, acne scars, enlarged pores - Purple: Thin and dry skin, sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines
