I know so many of my readers either use collagen supplements on a regular basis or have been interested in adding collagen to their routine. So I was thrilled when Collagen For Her reached out to me about five months ago to see if I’d liked to try their products. I shared about that in this previous post. But today, after using their supplements for a little over three months, I’m sharing my honest results from using Collagen For Her.
This is No Snake Oil!
Of course I do want you to know that I always offer you my honest assessments here at Dressed for My Day, whether that be about fashion or makeup or lifestyle aids such as collagen. Or just my life in general. I’m an open book. And your trust is important to me. That’s why I wanted to circle back around after using the products to share with you my results.
But I’m also pleased to share that a desire for transparency is one of the factors that drove Collagen For Her co-founder Kaitlyn to start this business to begin with. She noticed that much of the talk on social media about dietary supplements centered around meal replacement shakes and diet pills, offering false or speculative claims and quick fixes. Kaitlyn decided, “there was way too much snake oil out there,” and she wanted to be part of the solution. Plus, collagen played a big role in her own health and she was passionate about sharing the benefits with others.
So Collagen For Her was birthed by women with the goal of providing transparent, helpful information about collagen for women, as well as a collection of sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, paleo, and keto collagen products that meet the needs of unique women.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is a crucial building block for bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. But collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth. As we get older our bodies produce less and less collagen with each passing year, resulting in visible and not-so-noticeable signs of aging, such as wrinkles and less elastic skin; brittle hair, teeth and nails; a sluggish metabolism and joint pain and discomfort.

The Collagen for Her Products I’ve Been Using
I’ve been using the Unflavored Collagen Peptide Powder almost daily either in my coffee or in my oatmeal. It works beautifully in those two things for me, but you can also add this supplement to tea, smoothies and baked goods. Occasionally I’ve swapped in the Marine Collagen Beauty Blend, but for the most part I prefer using the Collagen Peptide Powder and knowing that I’m getting collagen with high quality bovine.
But because I sometimes forgot to add the Unflavored Collagen Peptide Powder to anything during the day, I recently began using the Marine Collagen Beauty Gummies, too. I take two orange flavored, easy-to-chew gummies each day without fail. And you can even use the gummies along with your other favorite Collagen For Her supplement. The pescatarian-friendly gummies contain Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Biotin, Zinc, and Marine Collagen to help keep your hair, skin, and nails in tip top shape.
My Honest Results from Using Collagen for Her
My hair dresser, who will be styling hair in the New York City fashion week shows next month, told me just last week, without being asked, that my “hair is amazingly healthy.”
My nail tech recently told me my nails grow faster than most of her younger clients. And she volunteered that they look healthy and strong, too. I haven’t had a broken or torn nail in three months. And I’m about to start having to schedule my nail appointments more frequently because they’re growing so fast.
I don’t have an “expert” collaboration on this one, but the joint pains I’ve experienced for years in my hands, elbows and hips have almost disappeared. I have had some pain just this past week in one hip, but I think that has had a lot to do with the weather and some exercises I did recently. But the pain I’d experienced in my hands and elbows is just no longer an issue, and I think I have better mobility in those joints, too.
Should You Take Collagen?
My goal for today’s post was not to convince you to take a collagen supplement, but just to share my honest results from using collagen. However, it does turn out that Collagen For Her is having a great savings event on their New Year Collagen Bundles right now. You can save up to 30% off your purchase depending on which bundle you choose. All three of the products I use are included in the sale. And you’ll receive a free bottle of their Healthy Gut Probiotics with any bundle order while supplies last. Most of their products are also available on Amazon here.
So I’ll let you head over to Collagen For Her to figure out which of their products is best suited to your needs. They have all the information on the website to help you determine which ones would fit in best with your diet and personal needs. But I can assure you that my experience with Collagen For Her has been beneficial and very positive. And I’m definitely continuing to use their products.

Blessed for My Day
Do you remember how wonderful it felt to fall in love? Being in love is a magical feeling. You almost have to hold yourself back from loving all the more. But that’s falling in love. Loving someone is a completely different thing. To love someone is quite different from falling in love. Falling in love happens to you, it’s an overwhelming emotion and it pulls you along like a tidal wave. Loving someone is a choice, it often requires fighting against your emotions and it sometimes means you have to push through and do what you don’t feel like doing.
Fortunately we have an example of how to love well: our God. The Bible tells us that God regretted even creating the world at times. Our sin offended Him and pushed Him away. But He chose to love us enough to send His only Son, Jesus, to live among us and then die for our sins so that we may once again have a relationship with us. He loves us that much. And He loves us that well. Today if you are struggling to love someone, consider – ponder – the way that God has loved you. I’ve found that meditating on God’s love for me helps propel me to love others better.
We love because he first loved us. ~ 1 John 4:19
