Living The Vida Glow-ca

Does ingestible collagen really work? My quick answer is yes, if you understand the distinction of hydrolyzed collagen – also known as collagen hydrolysate, collagen peptide, gelatine, gelatine hydrolysate or hydrolyzed gelatine – in which individual collagen strands have been hydrolyzed using heat and either acid or alkali solutions.
Hydrolyzed collagen is produced from collagen found in the bones, skin, and connective tissue of animals such as cattle, fish, horses, pigs, and rabbits.  on the ingestible collagen bandwagon. In Japan and Taiwan, collagen is often added to noodles, soups, fondue pots and even marshmallows.

Collagen, the second most abundant substance in our body, is the protein glue that holds our bodies together,  as well as the building block of our tissues. As much as 75% of our skin, over 90% of our ligaments and tendons, 35% of our bones are made of collagen. We drink water as it is a huge part of our body composition, and in the same vein, collagen ingestion may help the body’s collagen formation as a whole.

Here’s a scary thought: in our mid-twenties our collagen production will begin to decrease at a rate of 2% a year, and we would have lost over half the amount of collagen in our bodies by our 50s when the natural collagen production ceases altogether. The clearest signs of this cessation include wrinkles, sagging skin, finer hair, joint pain or joint degeneration.

Pep talk aside, I’ve personally tried many brands and types of collagen products. The main concern of youths, or anyone in their 20s and 30s, is not the need for intake per se, but rather where and how to purchase collagen from a trustworthy source.

Well, one particular brand caught my eye of late, and that is Vida Glow.

Vida Glow Collagen Beauty Review

I’ve been trying out 2 of its sassy flavours for a week now: the natural marine collagen (left, in turquoise), and the peach-flavoured collagen (right, in pink), and though there aren’t any “omg she’s glowing!” and other immediately obvious effects, my face probably doesn’t get as dry and crack-ly under prolonged exposure to air-conditioning. Plus the additional collagen intake gives me a peace of mind.

Vida essentially means life and with every serving the brand aims to give consumers a little extra “life glow”. While based in Australia, all of Vida Glow’s collagen products are “Made in Japan”, and are marked with the highest grading form of pure marine collagen available. For assurance, Vida Glow ensures that every product batch is tested by an independent NATA accredited laboratory in Sydney, Australia, for quality and safety.

Vida Glow Collagen Review

Why I choose Vida Glow:

  • Aesthetics:
    Vida Glow has done right in the aesthetics department. Its bold, clean packaging and cotton candy colours projects a youthful, trendy image which I love. Helps a lot that the pop-coloured sachets make me happy as I’m stirring its contents into my coffee.
  • Convenience:
    – Being individually packed, it is incredibly convenient to pop a sachet into my morning coffee, and to leave a couple of sachets sticks in my handbag and desk to include in my lunch or midday tea
  • Taste:
    – Honestly, the peach-flavoured sachet taste so good on its own. You know how collagen from renowned brands (even Meiji) has this overwhelmingly strong fishy taste? Whilst Vida Glow’s marine collagen is not completely devoid of that funky deep-sea odour, it is tonnes less unpleasant on the olfactory senses. And the smell can be rather entirely masked when mixed in strong tea or milkshake.
  • Safety:
    Vida Glow only produces 100% natural products that contain no artificial flavours, colours, additives or preservatives. It is also free from wheat, gluten, allergens, soy, lactose, dairy, sugar, carbohydrates and fat. Their flavoured collagen powders contain natural fruit flavours and also come with the added goodness of vitamins for extra doses of antioxidants. What’s not to love? If this alleviates any worries, stringent laboratory tests ensure that Vida Glow collagen is free from toxins, heavy metals, and pollution.
  • Variety:
    – Vida Glow boasts 4 delicious collagen blend flavours. I’ve tried the peach-flavoured one, and it mixes very well with porridge, yoghurt and soup at lunch or dinner. Yes, the blend is pretty heat-stable too. I love my peach-flavoured collagen in smoothies, shakes and fruit juices! If ever I do try other flavours, I’ll let you know how they taste like.

Vida Glow Peach Marine Collagen

In this section, I’ll share a little bit more on each flavour. As mentioned earlier, I loved the natural Peach flavour, made with natural Peach Juice powder. On its own, peaches are rich in phytochemicals called phenols that act as antioxidants. This peach-flavoured powder also comes with added Vitamin C and Green Tea extract for an extra dose of antioxidants which are essential for healthy hair, skin and nails and protection against cell damage!

Vida Glow Peach Collagen (Pink)

90% of the time I never leave the house without some form of sun protection on my face, to guard against pre-mature skin ageing. From what I understand, photo ageing happens when damage from UV rays affect skin cell function, usually reflected in rougher, drier, wrinkled and less elastic skin. Ageing is accelerated by the sun’s UV rays which speeds up free radical production while at the same time depletes antioxidants.

The antioxidants boost in Vida Glow drinks will aid in counteracting free radical activity, just as Vitamins A and C (though minimal and inadequate in a single Vida Glow peach sachet) which are both found in peaches, are notable in protecting and hydrating the skin. In addition to daily collagen supplements, a diet rich in Vitamin C helps develop resistance against infectious agents, assisting in stronger immune health. Which is why Vida Glow is a helpful and convenient daily supplement to a healthy and beauty-conscious diet.

Could fit 10 of this in my travel purses! I won’t need to fret over inadequate nutrition on my holidays.

Vida Glow Natural Marine Collagen

Vida Glow’s natural marine collagen is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales of Deep Sea Red Snapper, sustainably sourced from the Western Central Pacific Ocean waters of Australasia. Whilst the other collagen powders are enhanced with natural fruit flavours, I concur that the natural marine collagen smells a tad fishier. Given a choice, I’d definitely go for flavoured collagen.

I must add: the turquoise-emerald-coloured sachets are a real eye-candy!

Marine collagen is usually derived from fish and can be extracted from the scale or skin; Vida Glow uses the scale as it is richer in nutrients and collagen protein. Japanese women have used marine collagen as secret weapon for youthful radiance for many years, and the studies showing the benefits of taking marine collagen are plentiful. And I’m a sucker for that stuff.

Vida Glow natural marine collagen review asia

Being a 100% natural product, Original Vida Glow marine collagen contains no artificial flavours, colours, additives or preservatives. It is also free from wheat, gluten, allergens, soy, lactose, dairy, sugar, carbohydrates and fat. Au naturale – I totally dig that.

Natural marine collagen - Vida Glow Review

The marine collagen is of low molecular weight hydrolysed collagen powder, making it easy to digest and absorb. The rate at which these powders get absorbed into my smoothies and coffees are very convincing indeed. Research compounds this belief that consumable collagen has a higher bioavailability and absorption rate, and when regularly ingested over long periods of time, collagen fibres are formed to strengthen the collagen matrix below the dermis, the inner layer of the skin.

Natural marine collagen - Vida Glow Asia

It’s easy to understand why the Original Vida Glow remains the favourite in Vida Glow’s range as it’s the most convenient to include into your daily diet with the majority of their customers reporting no taste or smell, making it ideal to stir into any food or drinks. I guess I may have more sensitive taste buds – which is fine! As Vida Glow’s flavoured marine collagen options are just perfect for me.

Who’s with me? I’m including collagen into my daily diet to prolong longevity of youthful hair, skin and nails. Even if scientific studies have been inconclusive as proof of its obvious efficacy, boosting your body’s essential composition will not go wrong.

About Vida Glow

Vida Glow offers a range of natural supplements that nourish hair, skin and nails from within. Our marine collagen is pure hydrolysed collagen peptide and comes in powder form, making it incredibly easy to stir into your favourite food or drink.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, amounting up to 70%. Until our mid-twenties, our bodies naturally produce collagen. As this production slows and eventually stops completely, we begin to see the effects of ageing. Replenishing collagen levels will help increase the building blocks that maintain our hair, skin and nails.

Including Vida Glow in your daily diet will help stimulate your body’s natural supply of collagen, increasing elasticity, hydration and firmness in your skin, as well as repairing weak or brittle nails. Vida Glow assists in the growth and strengthening of your hair, adding extra shine and helping rejuvenate dry or damaged hair.

Collagen is a protein that is vital to maintaining healthy muscles and connective tissues. Therefore your tendons, ligaments and cartilage greatly benefit from taking Vida Glow marine collagen, notably preserving joint and bone health and encouraging muscle toning and definition.

Vida Glow will also assist with dealing with daily stresses of toxins, late nights, poor diet, sun damage and harsh environments.

Vida means life and with every servings the aim is to give you with a little extra “life glow”.

[MUA] Channeling Oriental Vibes 

Like many Asians, I used to hate my mono-lids. Except mine aren’t exactly mono per se – only tucked away under an inch of skin. My younger self was an avid fan of thick grunge-rock black eyeliner. And my mantra was that the thicker the eyeliner, the more ‘made-up’ and glam I looked. With my eyes closed, I literally had to colour my lids with 2cm of black ink before a significant line could be seen above my eyes upon opening them. And truth be told, I went through pots of black eyeliner faster than Taylor Swift changed her boyfriends.

Since then I’ve learnt to embrace my almond shaped, slitty Asian eyes, and to play with ’em God-given oriental features. My favourite Asian models – Liu Wen and Mingxi could always rock the runway despite the decidedly Western VS culture. Besides the fact that they have much bigger eyes (or perhaps proportionally smaller faces) than I do, monolids never stopped them from wearing bolder looks. Brown, taupe, peach and gold eyeshadow looks amazing on Asian skin, and so does bright red on the lips. In fact, reds in any shade (brights, dark) and texture (shimmer, gloss, matte) goes perfectly as lip accessories.

I wasn’t exactly recreating her look, but merely matching my day-to-night makeup with an oriental floral dress. As the occasion beckons (a friend’s wedding),  I could really afford to glam it up.

One thing I’ve learnt from watching too-many makeup videos is that on Asian monolids the cat-eye always works.  Brows:

Lips:

Foundation:

As I got older, pink stopped being a fail-safe lip colour – women in their mid-20s could risk looking juvenile with overly sweet pink. I find that reds, mauve or rose are the new safety nets. On days I feel more adventurous, I go for deep purples and plums, which are great for matching cool-toned outfits. Peach and coral lips are for those barely-there days.

With lips I’m clearly a bit of a fanatic. – this is only half of my gloss collection which started 3 years ago. My favourites are, hands-down, Maybelline (love their plum shades, and their gloss always smells delish!), MAC (stays on forever) and NYX (not in this shot – I have more than 10 of those because they come in sooooo many yummy colours I wanna bite my own lips sometimes). I could share more of them next time! Which brands are your faves?

If I could I would wear lipstick to bed 😉

cracked perfection

20140727-035937-14377993.jpg

“I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.
This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.”
— Clementine von Radics

SEOUL DIARIES 031: CARRIED AWAY

Oh you know how it is. Once started, shopping can get absolutely frenzied. Just a day in Apgujeong and my summer luggage threatened to explode at its seams. Fall is my favourite season for shopping anywhere in the world. It’s neither too hot for brisk-walking in the streets nor too cold for chilling with a sugar-filled cup of gelato goodness. Seoul’s summer and fall fashions are just perfect for my own country’s year-round tropical climate.

There exists an underground bags and leather goods store in uptown Garosugil, the likes of which you may find similar to Taiwan’s Ximending and Japan’s Shibuya. No signs for the store has been put up, and the only clue of its existence are the low white racks lined with select samples of bags, purses and clutches. Along the main street, an unimpressive patch of synthetic grass paves the way to the shop’s main tiny main entrance, which leads to a stairway to an impressive storage basement – the shop’s main deck. If you’re into vintage non-designer, this is the place for you. Happy hunting!
Side note for the bag aficionados: Simone Handbag Museum in the 10-storey Bagstage building (also in Apgujeong) is a place you absolutely have to go!

20140713-020835-7715982.jpg❤ Beaded leather lippie clutch / sling bag from that store in Garosugil at a jaw-dropping low price. Ask me if you wanna know!

 

This time round, I did less shopping than my previous solo-venture to Seoul.
Banila Co. is a brand I’ve only recently come to love and appreciate! Targeted at ladies in their mid to late twenties (which I’m fast approaching), I find their products more OL-oriented. Definitely less cutesy or annoyingly bubbly like Etude House or Tony Moly. They come in more sophisticated packaging with less exotic names, and since I’ve heard only good things about their products I decided to give these a try.

20140713-020837-7717611.jpg

20140713-020836-7716782.jpg

Missha has got a magnificent range of nail polishes! Got these lovely bright pink and fuchsia colours to match my lippies from Banila Co. and Too Cool for School. Both of which are tiny and so easy to carry around for touch-ups. Banila Co. lippies are way longer-lasting though, and this is coming from someone who at times has to wear makeup for more than 18 hours straight.20140713-020840-7720023.jpg

This trip, I didn’t get any of of my usual cheap round lenses. Instead, I opted for something more hygienic and safe. Definitely pricier than my norm but since my eyes were recently hit by conjunctivitis, I’ve gone over to the safe side.20140713-020832-7712898.jpg

Time to start loving my eyes. And to hopefully reduce those stubborn bruises on my eyebags.20140714-003445-2085358.jpg

Gel nail polishes at a steal! The LED light machines from MODI are comparable to the ones I got from the states.20140714-003447-2087821.jpg

More of my beauty loot from various cosmetic giants. Face masks – I’ll never give them a miss.20140714-003448-2088691.jpg

 

Seeing as I’m returning to Seoul in August (for other reasons), there’s never an end to my Korean beauty/cosmetics/makeup loot. I gave up on The Face Shop – their products are such placebos with zero positive effects whatsoever. Trust me guys, not all the fancy cosmetics stores in Korea have excellent products as advertised. It’s a trial and error thing, you’ll know once you’ve tried.

Shoe-Porn Ahead: Sole Superior SG

CAPTAIN AMERICA KICKS. How can anyone fricking resist not oogling at that beauty! Sole Superior 9

Helped out at Straatosphere for Sole Superior SG, Singapore’s first sneakers convention, where I had a major case of sneaker lust! This really opened my eyes to all the retailers and brands out there, as well as the people who come for events like this.

Sole Superior 1

Caps, oversized teeshirts, big shades, bling-blings, customised kicks and autographed shoes… they make me miss hardcore dancing and all kinds of high-top sneakers I would have put to good use! Or rather, shoes that I would have abused with over-use. Spent some time ogling at gorgeous Adidas, Nike, Reebok and New Balance kicks! Also got to know some obscure but nonetheless awesome limited edition brands. Since I’m heading to Houston for Christmas, I could wait till then to get my Vans, wedge-sneakers and boots for my brothers!

Boho-Chic Week: Khalid & Bridges

bohochic
Auguste Abeliunaite by Luis Monteiro

Tired of wearing a dress that’s ‘so last season’?
Fashion pieces that never go out of style – oh, if only.

Now let’s think, which fashion fad never seems to die? Boho-chic, it seems, has its influences lurking in all the sneakiest ways.

Drawing on bohemian & hippie influences, Boho-Chic began in the 1960s. Its popularity boomed after Sienna Miller strutted her stuff at the Glastonbury Festival, 2004. Constantly re-emerging on the latest catwalks are signature slouchy cardigans, grungy dresses, heavily embroidered belts and cowboy boots.

Less conventional are its alternative titles ‘”hobo-grunge” and “heroin chic”. It’s definitely not easy to nail the style. You can’t just dress like a hobo!

Getting in touch with a dozen online fashion houses and having perused their Boho-Chic collections, I learnt a whole lot. What can these fashion houses share with us about Boho-Chic?


In the spotlight today:

Khalid & Bridges

Based in London, it is an exciting new blend of femininity and elegance founded by two friends. Their unique, constantly growing collection of jewellery is inspired by travels around the world. Best of all, they come with great prices!

Bonus Style Advice: (from Rabia Khalid and Fredericka Lathbridge of Khalid&Bridges):

Staying in trend this fall with Boho chic should be a breeze: there are many choices available to indulge your style appetite. The great thing about Boho chic is that it’s all about creating an individual style.
The winter season provides a great opportunity to play around with colours as well as layers. Folk-inspired pieces are on trend with all sorts of colour combinations available and patterns inspired by Native American looks and Asian influences.

When it comes to shoes, a great pair of boots can compliment either trousers or jeans with a white blouse or a baggy cardigan/jumper. Slouchy pants are hot off the catwalk from New York and are a fantastic choice to add a little oomph to your outfit this winter. To finish the look off, dress your neck with some statement jewellery. Necklaces are the perfect the accessory to complete your Boho chic look, check out our collection at Khalid and Bridges’s (https://www.etsy.com/shop/KhalidandBridges?ref=si_shop) to find the perfect statement accessory.
