A few years ago, Corrine went to her hair stylist and said, “my hair is breaking off and brittle. What can I do to fix it?!” Her top response was this: COLLAGEN. You need to start taking collagen, daily.
She tried a few different powdered collagens and does think they helped!
But a few months ago she FINALLY tried liquid collagen, after a friend told her that her elderly friend's joint pain completely went away once she started consistently taking liquid collagen. The very same week, her mom told her, “Corrine, you know what's finally getting my eyelashes to grow?” she guessed that she was going to tell me lash serum. Nope. Collagen!!
So today we're sharing the one that we feel like works 10x better than any other we've tried. PLUS you can take $10 off your first purchase with our exclusive discount code!

Which collagen is best?
Like we said, Corrine has been trying different powdered collagens on and off for the past few years. We think ANY collagen you take will make a difference in your skin, nails and hair.
What really motivated Corrine to finally try this liquid collagen was the story her friend told her about the older woman she knew who got off all her pain medication from serious joint pain because she simply had a tablespoon of liquid collagen a couple times a day.
We like Modere's liquid PURE collagen the best because it's safe to take during pregnancy, has ZERO sugar, carbs and calories, and it improves joint mobility and lubrication, improves skin's hydration, firmness and tone. We've also seen our hair grow like a WEED and our skin is so much clearer and more supple when we're consistently taking our collagen.
Modere also makes a liquid collagen SPORT that is designed for really active people who want a formula that's a bit stronger for joint support!

WHAT ELSE WE LIKE FROM MODERE:
We LOVE Modere's TRIM (explained below) and randomly, we absolutely LOVE their deodorant too! It's honestly THE BEST clean deodorant we've ever tried. It has a super mild scent, goes on completely clear so we put it on right out of the shower and it doesn't transfer to our clothes, and it really works and lasts ALL DAY. Any other all-natural deodorant we've tried requires re-application throughout the day, but their deodorant is a one-and-done a day for us!
Why collagen is important
To make it super simple, collagen is a major component of healthy joints, youthful skin and connective tissue. Between your 20s and 30s your collagen production starts to decline, so taking collagen helps you get the benefits you once had when you were younger and your joints felt better, your hair grew thicker more easily, and your skin was more youthful.
Is it medically recommended?
Okay but how does it taste?
Personally this was one of the reasons we waited so long to try liquid collagen. We didn't want to take something that tasted bad. Here's our honest opinion: it doesn't taste terrible, but it doesn't taste amazing either. It's a kind of sour-ish taste but it's NOT awful, we promise! We really don't mind it. It's about 1,000x better than a LOT of the powder collagens that we've tried that were chunky and we had to gag down a whole cup dissolved in water. This liquid collagen is a quick tablespoon twice a day.
What is modere TRIM?
Modere TRIM is a weight loss supplement. The manufacturers claim that this supplement helps with weight loss while also helping your muscle tone. So, in essence, it is a double-edged sword that reduces body fat and gives you muscles.
We actually LOVE the taste of the Modere trim in mango and in chocolate. That stuff tastes like a mango treat, or chocolate pudding! YUM. It's not recommended for pregnancy and especially not for breastfeeding, when you need fat cells, because it essentially helps your body eliminate fat cells.
Where to store your liquid collagen
It's recommended to keep your liquid collagen in the fridge. Corrine has some in her fridge downstairs so she can take it right after breakfast or dinner (or sometimes when she's getting her dessert after the kids are in bed!). She also keep some in her mini-fridge in her bathroom so she can easily take it in the morning when she's getting ready or at night right before she starts her skin and teeth routine.
Does collagen make a difference?
We've noticed a huge difference in everything from our skin to hair to nails, but MOST notably our hair!
Most people don't think of eyelashes first when they think of hair, but … they are!
Corrine noticed a HUGE difference growing her lashes out after damaging them for 10 YEARS doing traditional eyelash extensions, using both liquid collagen daily and this lash serum. Remember this was one of the reasons she was finally convinced to get serious about collagen – her mom said HER eyelashes finally started growing long again when she consistently used collagen!
Here's a before and after of right when she took her lash extensions off, and what they look like now!

Will collagen help your hair grow out?
The answer to this is YES. Longer, thicker, fuller. All yes.
Ask your hair stylist if they notice a difference between clients who DO use collagen, and clients who don't!
Here's a picture of Corrine's hair at its worst after postpartum hair loss, color damage and not taking any collagen. You can see how stringy the ends were and how much breakage she was experiencing!
And here's what her hair looks like NOW, after months of consistently taking collagen! Thick and full and healthy EVEN at the ends.
Where to buy collagen
Honestly you can get collagen at just about any grocery store, at Costco, online … it's all over the place. It's not all created equally though! Just like anything else.
We can only speak from personal experience, but we did notice a major difference between powder collagen and liquid collagen. Not only is it way easier for us to take a quick tablespoon twice a day, but it also has significantly made our hair, skin, nails and joint pain better!
Let us know if you try it and what you think!
