Hi Sunday. Yes I take Colladeen Visage! Pretty much the only supplement i am on... Colladeen has helped make my skin look a bit more even and quite a bit brighter. The tablets have also reduced my little broken veins, so I just wear a bit of tinted moisturiser now.... I've been taking them for six months. Would recommend them. they're not miraculous, but they do make a difference.
Ps newby's point about the "natural SPF" is something which I also meant to endorse - my skin does feel better protected since I have started on the tablets. I don't really feel like lathering it in chemical sunscreen every morning, so it's nice to have an "inbuilt" alternative. (albeit I work indoors, at a computer, and in the uk. So I hardly have a sunny day to day existence! If you're outdoors all day, the tablets probably won't be enough...)
I tried Colladeen visage for about six months. I did look better afterwards but then I was emerging from a shit time and was finally sleeping, eating and generally feeling better anyway so it's hard to know how much of the improvement was down to the pills.
I stopped taking them about a year ago (too expensive) and I still look ok for my age apparently, though possibly not first thing...
