The boundary between food and beauty are really getting blurred with beauty in a packet of powder drink to make women look young. The demand for more effective beauty products triggered the emergence of beauty in form of food.

Shiseido collagen was one of the pioneer for many beauty supplements that came out after that. Thanks to collagen that ‘sunscreen’ pills, whitening pills, anti ageing pills and even ‘deodorant’ pills that make you smell like roses came out after that.

It was one of the most innovative creations in the beauty industry.  So, does collagen supplement really work?

So, here is my take on Shiseido Collagen Powder after trying it for three weeks. Please take it that I only use this as supplement.

It comes in a zip lock bag so it is easy for keeping. Becareful if you plan to pour it into container as the powder is very fine. It is almost like dust.

Some of the ingredients are patented. The collagen comes from fishes which is the best source of beauty food for skin. It is true that collagen will turn into amino acid inside the human body and so the effect will only show on your skin in long run. So, try not to expect immediate effect.

 This is how the collagen powder look like on plain water. Please do not drink with plain water or it will taste bad. XP

As for the taste, there is no musky or whatever weird taste to it. I use the given spoon to scoop it into my morning coffee. It becomes like creamer which is actually addictive XP. I really have to be happy that I don’t need to endure any horrible taste for beauty. After all, who wants to start their day drinking something awful?

There is slight smell of soy powder to it which is quite nice. I think this is far from the weird smell of collagen in the past.


The Shiseido Collagen powder does show its effect on me although I tried to deny the effects and wanted to praise the skincare products that I was using. I tried not taking it for 1 week and my skin show sign of deterioration-bigger pores and less smooth skin.

Skin is really smooth and pores are smaller. The skin does heal faster even when I pick on it. One of the reasons was the ceramide inside the collagen which is well known to help plump skin, hydrate and heal the skin as well as prevent damage to the skin.

It doesn’t do much for the clogged pores or getting rid of acne so it is not a miracle for all skincare concerns. However, no additional acne when I was on it. Skin is also brighter because of the vitamin C. I am not sure of the hydration part since it looks the same to me. I do like the smooth effect. If only those effect can last forever but nothing last forever right? As for lines, it just reduces the appearance but not gets rid of it.

I think collagen in powder is better than in other form. You can get the same effect by eating a lot of fishes but most of the time, it is not possible because of our lifestyle so there goes beauty supplement like this. Just do not rely on eating collagen alone.

Overall, try to have realistic expectation of what collagen powder can do. Shiseido Collagen Powder V does make my skin looks better than it is. Looking for fish goodness, ceramide, vitamin goodness in form of food or just want to try something new because you skin has ‘plateau’, do have a look at it.
