It’s not even 8am and it’s been a bit of a rough start, to be honest. I’d say the part that sucks about being a freelancer is having to chase people down to pay their invoices.
Most of my clients pay right away and I don’t have to say a word (and I’m so, so grateful for them), but there’s always gotta be somebody that waits and waits… and well, it’s not fun to keep saying, “Hi, your invoice was due three days ago” or, “Yeah, I’ll get right back on the project once you pay the bill.”
But, I am determined NOT to let that affect the rest of my day. I’ve got a fresh cup of coffee and a fairly easy day ahead.
So, let’s get into what we all came here for: the Olly Collagen Peptides Powder review!
Why Should I Start Taking Collagen?
I feel like collagen products are everywhere now, and everyone is dumping the stuff into their coffee in the morning. Before, I’d never heard of such a thing.
A few of my friends regularly take collagen because after 20, our bodies reduce the amount of collagen they naturally produce each year. Once we hit 40, our bodies don’t produce any collagen!
Collagen helps reduce the signs of aging, but also affects our skin’s elasticity.
Generally, I’m not terribly worried about the signs of aging. However, this whole time in lockdown, I’ve been perfecting my skincare routine. I’m trying to get rid of a few stubborn blemishes and I figured, hey maybe I should try taking collagen to see if it makes my skin look any different.
So, I bought the Olly Collagen Peptides Powder
Olly Collagen Peptides Powder
There are TONS of different collagen products out there. I’ll be honest, the only reason I picked the Olly container is because it’s a brand I’ve been using for a few years and I trust their products.
I’ve used their women’s mutivitamin, beauty sleep gummies, immunity sleep gummies, regular sleep gummies (are you noticing a trend?), and their stress gummies. I’ve even ordered the protein bars! Here’s the scoop on the Collagen Peptides Powder:
This multi-tasking superstar is essential for that beautiful glow we all long for. It’s also a key protein throughout our entire body so there are many benefits to our health—resilient skin, strong nails & healthy hair, just to name a few.* We’ll drink to that!
I put this in my coffee every day and I quickly noticed my nails growing quickly and stronger. My skin also looks smoother!
There is no real taste to the powder, so you can mix it in pretty much anything — water, coffee, smoothies… I’ve even seen people bake with it.
The reviews for this product are outstanding — almost a full 5 stars! Many people said they noticed in their hair and eyelashes, however I started with thick hair, so I don’t know how much it would change mine.
But, I’m happy with the results I’ve seen so far, especially for the price: $25 for 20 servings.
I also ordered the Olly Collagen Gummy Rings, because I thought they would be good for travel (whenever that happens again). I have only tried them once to see how they taste (and they taste just like the peach rings)!
If you’re looking for a collagen to try, this just might be the one! Of course, I’d take a look at the ingredients and see if it works for your body and your needs first.
Have you taken collagen? What kind? Have you seen results?
