Hi guys! I’m back for the second part of my review of the Mosbeau Placenta Collagen Jelly! I’m sorry I wasn’t able to make the review exactly after the 15 days trial of the product. I was out of town for a week. But worry not, because I have loads of information to share about my experience on this product! 🙂
As you guys can remember I mentioned in my previous post that I’ll be trying a new whitening product from Mosbeau. Mosbeau just recently released a new product in their line which is the Placenta Collagen Jelly. To know more about the details of the product, here’s the link to the first part of this review:
Since I wanted to try and see first whether the product was nice I opted for a box of 15 sachets only. The timing of trying this product was perfect since I just came from a beach in Bacolod which got my skin tone a bit uneven. Another thing, I’ll be mentioning some feedback from my mom and sister since they took this too.
Moving on to my review, I took the product every morning with an empty stomach as indicated in the instructions on its box. I usually had it 30 minutes to an hour before I eat my breakfast depending on how busy I am. I would also sometimes drink water before or after eating it. Also, I took Vitamin E and/or C in the evening before I sleep. I don’t know if these were still necessary since there was already Vitamin E and C in the product itself. But I was hoping that supplementing it would boost its effect since Vitamin E is anti-oxidant too and Vitamin C helps increase the levels of Vitamin E as well as in Glutathione recycling by converting it to its reduced form which is able to act on free radicals. Also, taking higher doses of Vitamin C is said to lighten skin over time. If you want to know more about these two you could check this website:
I will try to do my best to describe the product in more specific details:
The over all packaging was nice with its white, gold and pink accent. The box was a little heavier than what I expected considering that it contained only fifteen sachets. But there’s really nothing wrong with that. In fact, I feel liked it. It somehow added to it’s quality. There’s this feeling that I’m getting what I actually paid for. Anyway, maybe it’s just me and my weirdness 😀
I like the taste and the feeling of the product in my mouth. It has a Mango flavor and it doesn’t have any weird after taste or any gooey feeling that would make you want to throw out. For me it’s just like eating any Mango flavored jelly ace and you wouldn’t even think that it has a horse placenta in it. I know. The sound of it can make one imagine a lot of weird things but it really was okay. 🙂
None. I didn’t get any bad digestive reactions after my first intake of the product. Although in the case of mom, she said she had hyperacidity. I guess it really differs from one person to another.
- I noticed some mild effect on my skin in less five days of taking this product.* My skin was smoother and more supple. It’s so hard to explain the feeling of the texture my skin but the closest that I could think of is of a felt paper :)) I know it sounds weird but that’s what I would remember whenever I touch my skin.
- My uneven skin tone got a little fairer.
- I also used to have huge and deep lines under my eyes which I got from always sleeping late but I noticed that it somehow became less obvious.
- During the time I was taking this product I had small pimples on my forehead which I badly want to get rid off. Sadly, there wasn’t much obvious effect on it. My guess is because I’m having hormonal imbalances which I’ll be mentioning again later.
*In the case of my sister, she already noticed the effect in her skin in just two days. My sister has been suffering from skin condition called Dermatitis which made her skin very sensitively react to a lot of substances. She would always have open wounds in her hands and arms which would always take a long time to heal and would leave dark spots and scars. If ever they do heal a simple scratch can easily break her skin and would open her wounds again. And so she decided to try taking collagen supplements to help restore the structural integrity of her skin. She tried the Mosbeau Collagen Jelly Sticks and surprisingly the effect of that product was helpful for her skin condition. She said her skin was less prone to easily getting wounds and that her wounds at that time started to close. Just like me she only wanted to try it first. A week, after the 15 days trial, of not taking the product, the part of her skin that have not yet completely healed started becoming prone to breaking again. She then decided to purchase again and have it for maintenance until she no longer need that much supplementary collagen.
Another thing I experienced during the time I was taking the product is that I started to have bleeding. I just finished my menstrual period for the month of May however after two weeks I started having some strong bleeding and not just some faint spotting. It kind of alerted me. I researched about it and one reason that I could think of was hormonal imbalance because the Placenta component of the product is trying to inhibit Melanin production thus the reaction. Another things is that it could be one of its ways to clean the body. I’m not sure of its mechanism though. I would like to also mention that I used to have my period every first week of the month then over time it became every third week of the month but again because of the said product I had my period during the first week of June 2015 which lasted for seven days. I heard also from my sister who had a irregular menstrual cycle that she had the same experience. She didn’t have any menstruation for several months already and she’s not even pregnant. But after taking that she started having monthly period.

Overall rating: 4.5/5
This would be my initial rating since I only tried the product for 15 days but I think that this product have a lot of promising potentials.
Will I recommend this product?
I definitely would especially to those people who wants to get an anti-aging and whitening benefit at the same time. It’s quite pricey but I ‘d rather go for something a bit expensive as long as I know I can trust the product.
*You could try consulting your doctor first before taking this if you’re worried about getting negative side effects because of some certain health conditions.
*If you’re not convinced with the product you could opt for smaller quantities first. Note that the effect would vary from each person depending on one’s skin tone/condition and over all health status.
*Follow the instructions. Be consistent and diligent in taking the product. Let the product take effect by avoiding anything that would decrease its potency.
So that’s my Mosbeau Placenta Collagen Jelly experience! I hope that this review will be a great help to all of you guys! If you guys have any additional info or suggestions feel free to comment below! 🙂 See you in my next product review! 🙂
