My pretty skin secret: Pro-Plenish Marine Collagen Review

What’s a girl to do when there are only so many hours in the day to primp, maintain hair/skin/nails, work out and maintain a healthy, nourished body? As a 40-something working mama, I can use the extra help in any form I can get it in. Regular water is no longer cutting it. Now I have “pretty water.” What is my pretty skin secret? Let me tell you about my new beauty weapon. I recently had the opportunity to try Proplenish edible marine collagen supplement. Proplenish is oderless, colorless, dissolvable supplement that you add to your food or beverages. As we age, we produce less and less collagen, this supplement restores the natural collagen that our bodies produce.

Why is replacing collagen so fabulous? By increasing our bodies collagen levels, skin becomes more hydrated and plump, fine lines are smoothed, hair is strengthened from the root and weak, brittle nails are rejuvenated. Additionally, collagen can assist with lean muscle gain and tone, training and exercise recovery. Proplenish marine collagen is 100% natural and free of fat, carbs, sugar, dairy, lactose, soy, wheat and gluten. It comes in loose powder form and convenient sachets making it easy to mix into tea, coffee, yogurt or your favorite smoothie each day.

Here is the scoop: I can’t recommend Proplenish enough. First of all, I can barely taste it and it goes down easy. I am someone who likes everything to taste good so this is a major plus for me. I add it in to my daily smoothie mix, drink and go. Since I have been using pro-plenish, My sleep is so much better. The fabulous benefit is that my skin is supple and vibrant. The dark circles around my eyes have diminished and my occasional adult acne has completely cleared up. My skin is a more even toned and softer than its ever been. My kiddos and husband have noticed and compliment me all the time (Major points for that!). My hair (which is already thick, curly and unruly) has grown in thicker and I have noticed less breakage and shedding (even my hairstylist remarked!) I feel more energy and vibrancy since I have been using pro-plenish (worth its weight in gold for that alone!)

Here is what I put in my “Pretty smoothie” that makes me look and feel so so beautiful.

Funky Monkey: Peanut butter Banana Chocolate Pro-plenish Smoothie
6 oz coconut milk
scoop of pro-plenish marine collagen
scoop of protein powder
spoonful of peanut butter
1 frozen banana
handful of ice
Blend and enjoy!

    Hi Melanie! Wow sounds like an amazing product. I took collagen tablets at the beginning of the year for about 4 months and really liked the benefits I experienced for my skin. The hard thing for me was the daily pill popping – a powder sounds like a great idea. Mix it up in a whole host of things.

    Btw, I love the lightness and branding of your blog. And you are beautiful!
