| Summary | Ranking | Marketing | Ingredients | Side Effects | Reviews | Pricing | Overall |
Revive Collagen is a very good-looking and captivating Collagen. But it is not actually nearly as good as an average customer would likely think it is. To that end, it’s amazing at up-playing its strong sides and down-playing its weak ones.
But the downsides are what I believe we should be very much looking at. The price is also not a bargain, generally speaking.
|Claimed Benefits||Accurate. | It claims to reduce fine lines, battle wrinkles, improve radiant-looking skin, and have healthier skin overall. | It has good reasons to deliver.|
|Ingredients||Average. | It is sourced from Farm-Raised Fish which is bad. | Other additions are great. | It is Non-GMO, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, and more. | It has a decent abundance to deliver the gains.|
|Side Effects||Maybe. | While it has many additives, none drive any real concerns. | Lack of third-party testing could bring some pollutants into your diet.|
|Quality||No testing. | While this is not as great as third-party testing, this is still awesome enough.|
|Success Rate||Above 91.8%. | Based on 49 reviews. | The success rate is likely good because it has good endorsements and people like the idea of the product.|
|Price||$2.49 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. | The price is really high, generally speaking. | But it’s actually not that bad for a liquid Collagen.|
|Ranking||Nop. | It has several different flaws that don’t quite make it one of the best Collagen supplements.|
|Recommendation||Consider it. | There is some good with it but I wouldn’t buy it.|
|Better Alternatives?||Personally, I would 100% prefer the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) over the Revive Collagen.|
Ranking | Where Does This Collagen Supplement Rank (In 2022)?
Marketing | Skin Health & Anti-Aging Are The Supplement’s Promises
According to the manufacturer, the Revive Collagen is a drink mix of Marine Collagen, Aloe Vera Juice, and Hyaluronic Acid. Per their words, it is a unique formula that works in a number of different ways to really augment that skin health.
When it comes to the product page, I like it a lot. I like the structure. I like the fact that it’s not too long. It’s just very well-designed.
Come to think of it, it is kind of like the Bulletproof Collagen Protein (review) or the Nature’s Truth Ultra Collagen (review).
For claimed benefits, the supplement focuses purely on skin health and all that’s related to that. Namely, it’s about fewer wrinkles, improved elasticity, glowing look.
They also promise to help battle dry skin and imply the notion of anti-aging properties.
As for marketing, we don’t get as many tactics to persuade people to buy as with some of the other similar supplements. However, there are plenty of those still.
It offers free delivery. Also, buying more right off the bat gives discounts. Applying for their subscription gives discounts. And then, of course, there’s also a section with unnaturally positive Revive Collagen reviews and an endorsement from famous people.
As for any free-of claims, it’s said to be Non-GMO, Lactose-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Sugar-Free, Artificial-Flavor-Free, and Artificial-Color-Free. It doesn’t have any third-party certifications. But the Collagen of Revive does advocate for sustainability.
So, is this truly worth the investment?
Ingredients | Sadly For Contents, Revive Collagen Is A Low-Quality Marine
Collagens do come in all kinds of ways these days. Powders like the Bubs Naturals Collagen Protein (review) is one of the more common ones. We also have tablet and capsule versions like the Doctor’s Best Collagen (review). And we also have drink sachets like the supplement of this review.
So, per serving (one sachet), the Revive Collagen offers 8,500 milligrams of Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen, 50 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid, and 50 milligrams of Aloe Vera extract. Here’s to elaborate on all this.
For Collagen, 8,500 milligrams is a decent amount. Still, I would much rather still prefer at least 10 grams. That amount is kind of the minimum which has a great chance of offering the full range of benefits. But for the benefits, sourcing is also important [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And with the Revive Collagen, it isn’t that great. I mean, yes, they sustainably source it. However, they do it from Farm-Raised fish. And that’s like having Bovine Collagen that isn’t Grass-Fed. Meaning, it’s not nearly as beneficial or healthy [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Another thing is third-party testing since fish are very capable of sucking up pollution, thus becoming very toxic. So, they have to be purified. But I don’t see Revive doing any of that. I mean, they don’t even claim to do in-house testing. Which is concerning and can come with certain side effects (like abdominal pain, nausea, chills, memory loss, weakness, chronic diseases, etc.) [R, R, R, R].
As for Hyaluronic Acid, it’s something that naturally also occurs in our bodies. But extra of that can deliver plenty of skin-related benefits while also improving joint and eye health. To that end, 50 milligrams is a pretty decent amount of that [R, R, R, R, R].
Whereas as far as that Aloe Vera extract goes, it’s something that can deliver digestive, skin, and mouth health benefits, improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels, provide heartburn relief, and offer antibacterial and antioxidant properties among other things. That said, 50 milligrams is a bit on the scarce side, to say the least [R, R, R, R, R].
So, all in all, I think that the two additions to the supplement of this review are great. Personally, I’m not so much a fan of the main gig (Collagen aspect), however.
Side Effects | As Far As Additives Go, Any Side Effects Do Feel Unlikely
Side effects are typically the product of additives. And the additives in the Revive Collagen are kind of like those that we find in supplements like the Superself Marine Collagen (review) and Yoli Collagen (review). They are all good and very low-risk stuff.
So, the supplement uses Water, Citric Acid, Erythritol, Mexican Lime extract, Sicilian Lemon Extract, and Stevia. Here’s a bit more on each.
Water is a very typical substance found in liquid Collagens. Plus, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Water is an extremely necessary substance for life. In fact, having it in abundant amounts in our diet can lead to all kinds of great benefits [R, R, R, R].
Citric Acid is typically used as a preservative. It’s a natural substance found both in our cells and in the foods we eat (like lemons, oranges, grapefruits, limes, and others).
Still, too much of it can prove to be highly detrimental (many processed foods have it). And consuming it from Aluminum utensils poses a good set of dangers as well (since Citric Acid improves Aluminum absorption) [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol likely fulfilling the function of sweetening the product alongside Stevia. It is one of the few sugar alcohols that I would say are okay to have. Because while it can come with some digestive distress, it is an otherwise very beneficial substance [R, R, R, R, R].
The Mexican Lime and Sicilian Lemon are in the Revive Collagen to add some flavor to it. Personally, I like the approach of using just fruit extracts instead of Natural Flavors much better. Because we often don’t exactly know what can be hidden under the term “Natural Flavor.” Using fruit extracts is definitely the more quality approach [R, R, R, R, R].
As for Stevia, it is an actually helpful sweetener. I mean, it’s none of the nonsense that ingredients like Sucralose or Aspartame are. In fact, Stevia can bring benefits like anti-cancer properties, better gut health and weight loss, and aid in fighting Lyme disease, as well as help with high blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and have other helpful aspects [R, R, R, R, R].
All in all, I have to admit, it did come as a surprise that the Revive Collagen has very well-chosen additives. Because most liquid Collagens don’t. The Pure Gold Collagen (review) and the LAC Taut Collagen (review) are great supplements to illustrate that point.
Reviews | Feedback Is Great But Not Everyone Is Satisfied
When it comes to customer feedback, the product page is filled with all kinds of positive testimonials. There are also various Revive Collagen reviews on there which are all unnaturally positive.
But that’s just a classic form of marketing.
I mean, manufacturers are well-aware that what other customers have been saying carries a lot of weight when it comes to new customers. And hence, the feedback on any given manufacturer’s page is typically overwhelmingly positive.
Examples of this do include supplements like the Skinny Fit Super Youth (review) and Naturelo Collagen (review).
So, for truth-seeking purposes, this kind of feedback doesn’t serve us at all. Hence, I went looking for what can be found by all third-party sellers and retailers. And sadly, I couldn’t find much.
I mean, in total, I still managed to come across 49 Revive Collagen reviews but that’s a bit on the scarce side since typically that’s too early to tell anything about the success rates.
Regardless, of these 45 were positive (three-star, four-star, five-star) and 4 were negative (one-star, two-star). Thus, we’re sitting at a 91.8% success rate. Which is very decent.
Many customers that loved it were shocked by how fast the Revive Collagen worked.
Many people report that this has made such a difference in their skin health. Others were happy that this helped their dark spots. Whereas others note that there is more life in their hair and nails now. Plus, while some say that the taste is fine, others are convinced that it’s great.
And so, a lot of customers absolutely swore by the product. But what about those that didn’t?
Well, not everyone enjoyed that taste. For others, the plastic and packaging that comes with the product were wasteful (and are a hard red flag). For others, it was the fact that they didn’t get any benefits that propelled them to leave a negative review.
Whereas for other people the Revive Collagen did the opposite. Meaning, their skin got worse. And the pricing was loathed, too.
Pricing | The Revive Protein Is No Bargain But It Could Have Been Worse
I guess the emotions weren’t too mixed when it comes to the pricing. Generally, even the five-star Revive Collagen reviews admitted that this is a remarkably expensive supplement. But is that only their gut feeling? Or is that the objective truth? Let’s dive into some math.
So, per box (14 servings), the supplement typically costs £27.99 (about $29.67). That’s basically £2.00 (about $2.12) per serving or £2.35 (about $2.49) for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. Now, how does that compare?
It actually isn’t that bad if all we consider are liquid Collagen supplements. I mean, compare it to the Isagenix Collagen Elixir (review).
Yes, Isagenix feels far better as far as quality. It offers third-party testing and the highest-quality Collagen. But both supplements have great additives. Both offer their own additional substances (I would say Revive’s are better). And they are Non-GMO among other things.
But the price is where the significant difference lies since Isagenix costs $8.80 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. I mean, the Revive is effectively like 25% of that. Thus, a huge difference in pricing. So, we might think that Revive is just a better value.
But that’s among liquid Collagens only. I mean, there are many more liquid Collagen examples but almost all of them I do not see as viable alternatives since they pursue Artificial Sweeteners and other similarly hazardous substances.
That said, I think Collagen powders have to be considered, too. Because they effectively are liquids (we mix the powder with a drink of our choice and consume them as liquids). So, I would compare it to Landish Marine Collagen (review) as well.
Landish typically costs $35.99 for a container. For every 10 grams of Marine Collagen, that’s $1.41. Namely, Landish is, essentially, 50% cheaper than the cost of Revive Collagen.
But it doesn’t outrank it only in that aspect. Landish is also Wild-Caught, third-party tested, Non-GMO Collagen that doesn’t use any additives. I mean, sure, it doesn’t have the Hyaluronic Acid or Aloe Vera extract. But it is so much more quality.
In other words, Landish is something that I would prefer over the supplement of this review every day of the week.
Pros & Cons | There Are Some Really Heavy Cons Like Farm-Raised Fish
|✓ The supplement is Sustainable, Non-GMO, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, and free of many other allergens.||✘ The Revive Collagen is sourced from Farm-Raised fish which is not the greatest food source.|
|✓ The amount per serving is good.||✘ It’s not third-party tested to ensure that it’s free from various pollutants and heavy metals.|
|✓ Revive Collagen has good additives.||✘ The price is not the greatest overall but it’s decent for a liquid Collagen.|
|✓ Very easy to take. Very easy to take with you when traveling.|
Overall | Revive Collagen Is A Lot Of Hype But I Wouldn’t Get It
I guess the uniqueness of the Revive Collagen lies in the form of delivery. I mean, there just aren’t that many bad-additive-free Collagen supplements that deliver their contents in a sachet type of form (the liquid way).
And so, it has inherent positives like being extremely easy to take with you wherever you go. It’s easy to have on the go as well. Plus, it’s like the fastest growing Collagen company in the UK or something.
And, yes, the positives are definitely also the fact that it has no harmful additives, that it sources its Collagen sustainably, and that customers have really liked it so far.
But the negatives I believe do outweigh the pros. I mean, the fact that it’s sourced from Farm-Raised fish just kind of destroys its chances of being considered among the top Collagen supplements. And then, the fact that they don’t do third-party testing murders it even further.
And so, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I believe that we should simply consider the Revive Collagen. It has a lot going for it like its very unique sachet approach. But the Collagen quality I feel is just not there yet.
On that note, if you are interested in something that actually good, I would recommend looking into the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) as the all-out better option.
Above all, I hope this review helped you find the information you were looking for. If you have any thoughts or questions, I’m just a comment away. And do feel free to leave your own personal reviews on the product as well.
4 thoughts on “Revive Collagen Review – Is The Skin-Revive Effect Real?”
Thanks for your honest review of the Revive Collagen! I was about to purchase it after going through the positive reviews. But you pointed out its low quality and that helped stop me from going through with the purchase. Lucky, I found your post, really! I will have a look at the Landish Marine Collagen. It sounds promising with your recommendation.
Another thing that I realized is that it’s not as important to me to have my Collagen come in a sachet-like form. I’m perfectly fine with having a powder and just mixing it in with my smoothies or some fresh-pressed juice.
Another reason why not getting this supplement feels like the better decision is that they have tons of packaging. I was kind of debating that with myself right from the start. It seemed like a lot from the pictures and people even pointed that out with their customer reviews. Landish is so much better in that regard.
The insight on the negative feedback was very helpful.
I’m thrilled that this article came just at the right time. That’s great to hear. Glad I posted it when I did. :)
And, indeed, the quality is definitely not ideal with this thing. I mean, the whole sachet approach does seem like a captivating one, especially if you travel or move around a lot. But lacking in sourcing is something I wouldn’t trade that for. That’s just not worth the money, the way I see it.
Yes, smoothies and juices are a great way to consume those powders. Be it Collagen or any other powder out there.
And I agree about packaging. That’s not great when there’s a ton of waste. Personally, I too try to avoid products like that. But Revive Collagen is just a heavy abuser of that. To that end, indeed, Landish is 100% the cleaner option. It has nowhere near as much packaging.
Thank you, Matiss. I really liked how your website laid out the information; I liked the structure. I think it was quite an elaborative and very, very informative piece of insight. Every second spent reading it was worth it. And you were not kidding when you said that we will be doing it thoroughly. I really like that truth-seeking approach.
What really drew me to the Revive Collagen was exactly the unique characteristic that you mentioned. To me, it just felt like the ideal thing since I tend to move around a lot. And for this supplement, I don’t need anything to consume it. There is no stirring or pouring like with many of the other options.
Additionally, I have been feeling tired lately, and I don’t do any exhausting work. Could that mean that I need some vitamin supplements to be added to my diet? I did all the possible tests to see what was the cause and all the tests came back normal.
Would love your take on this.
That’s great to hear. I mean, I worked a lot on the structure. It took some time to develop. But I think it is coming together quite nicely. I really appreciate the feedback. :)
Yeah, I absolutely feel you. I actually really like how they do it. I like that they are not afraid to be different. And I bet that is exactly why many people choose it over the other options on the market. It kind of offers the ideal thing of both worlds.
Meaning, it is easy to take because it is kind of like a tablet or capsule that you can easily take with you. And it offers the potency the kind Collagen powders offer. So, it’s awesome.
As for feeling tired lately, it could be many things. Maybe it’s just a matter of your sleeping schedule being out of whack. Maybe it’s just the lack of exercise in recent days. Or maybe it’s just some food alterations or hidden allergies that you’ve encountered with the new foods you’ve tried. Maybe it’s just the lack of sunlight in your day-to-day. Or maybe you’re immune system is battling some foreign invader.
And then, yes, it could be just a matter of not enough of basic nutrition. To that end, this should help a lot.
