According to the Revive Collagen reviews posted by customers, they were shocked at how fast it worked.
Many people report that this has made such a difference for their skin. Others were happy that this helped their dark spots. Whereas others note that there is more life in their hair and nails. Plus, while some say that the taste is fine, others are convinced that it’s great.
So, in this supplement review, it will be all about learning and researching everything that there is to know.
Hence, the idea is to be no extension of the manufacturer’s marketing or other similar nonsense. This is all going to be about what I feel is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And we’ll do that in assessing marketing, ingredients, side effects (additives), customer feedback, and pricing. We’ll do it the truth-seeking way.
Marketing | Skin Health & Anti-Aging Are The Supplement’s Promises
According to the manufacturer, the Revive Collagen is a “Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Drink with Hyaluronic acid and Aloe Vera Juice.” Per their words, it is all about improving “the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promotes healthier and more radiant-looking skin.” So, sounds pretty good [R].
The product page I like a lot. I like the structure. I like the fact that it’s not too long. It’s just very well designed.
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, 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, yet there are some 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.
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, 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 | To Review Contents, Revive Collagen Is 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 at proving the full range of benefits. But for benefits also the sourcing is 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 on 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, mouth health benefits, improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels, provide heartburn relief, 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 for 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. Still, too much of it can prove to be extremely detrimental (many processed foods have it). And consuming it from Aluminum utensils pose 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 sugar alcohol likely fulfilling the function of sweetening the product alongside the Stevia. It is one of the few ones of its kind 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 the supplement some flavor. 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 that label. 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, aid in fighting Lyme disease, as well as high blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and 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. Pure Gold Collagen (review) and 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 plenty of various Revive Collagen reviews all of which are 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.
So, for truth-seeking purposes, this kind 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.
And so, a lot of customers absolutely swore by the product. But what about those that didn’t?
Well, not everyone enjoyed the taste of it. For others, the plastic and packaging, that this has, were just too much. For others, it was the fact that they didn’t get any better that propelled them to leave a negative review. Whereas for others more, it did the opposite. Meaning, their skin got worse. And the pricing was loathed, too.
Pricing | Revive Protein Is Actually Less Expensive Than I Expected
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 $37.48). That’s basically £2.00 (about $2.68) per serving or £2.35 (about $3.15) 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 40% of that. Thus, a huge difference in pricing.
But that’s liquid Collagens. There are many more 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 more than less than half what Revive Collagen costs.
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. It’s something that I would prefer over the supplement of this review every day of the week.
Overall | There’s A Lot Of Hype But I Would Just Consider It
I guess the uniqueness of the Revive Collagen lies in the form of delivery. I mean, there just aren’t that many supplements that deliver their contents in a sachet type of form. And even less so when it comes to Collagens.
And so, it has inherent positives like being extremely easy to take with us whenever we’re on the go. It’s easy to have on the go as well. Plus, it’s like the fasted 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 at coming on top between the best Marine Collagens. 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; it’s very unique in its 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 Landish Marine Collagen (full review).
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.
