Shi-Tsu Collagen Beauty Drink

Collagen, Sheep Placenta and Bird Nest.. The super all in one?

There are just too many different beauty drinks and collagen supplements out there these days. We are spoilt for choice!! Uh-huh... which one would you lengluis go for? I've been sticking by CollagenMax for quite some time now. Though I had a 2 month++ break from any form of collagen or any sort of supplement. (Seriously, apart from trying to save on $$$... I was too busy working to go stock up... Haih... And, the Lemon Skin Ritual was the utmost cheapo-definitely-works-with-results skin saver ritual ever!!) I lived without any beauty drink for a couple of months and... skin is still pretty okay thanks to just de'simplest lemon juice help lol... But now.... I really think the overworked skin needs some pick-me-up... And so... I'm so so sorry CollagenMax, its time to try something new... Shi-Tsu Beauty Drink... (The ultimate decision lies with the way-too-cute to resist box... huahuahuahuaaaa.. See? Packaging is important!!)


I'll give this 6 bottles a go before making any firm conclusions on this.

What the advert says (See the links):

What the box says:

  1. Switzerland Sheep Placenta Extract (10,000mg)
  2. Marine Collagen (5,000mg)
  3. Bird Nest (5,000mg)
Other ingredients:
Strawberry Extract, Blueberry Extract, Isoflavones, Food Grade Citric Extract, Dextrose Monohydrate, Vitamin B, Vitamin C.

Initial review and research result with Uncle Google:
  • Tastes really bland and a little lemony. Honestly, this bland drink REALLY tastes like it contains no chemical substance as advertised..
  • The box says "Product of Japan" but umm... Uncle Google gave not much answers on this brand or the laboratory where it was formulated... This is still pretty much a mystery to me! Dodgy...
  • Found only minimal Chinese reviews on this... (And the complain was itchy skin) Uh-huh... lol.. I'm so taking the risk...
  • The consumption details below on the advert makes one wonder... hmmm... interesting.. hohoho...
    • For acne skin : Consume before 11pm ( the latest by 2am) before sleep. 
    • For insomnia : Consume in the morning, drink a cup of water every hour for 8 hours. 
    • For menstruation pain : Consume in the morning, drink 250ml of water every half an hour for 8 hours. (Water→Shi-Tsu ×Shi-Tsu→Water Fluids are needed for better absorption. )
  • Costs way more than CollagenMax and Kinohimitsu's Beauty Drinks... RM98 for 6 miserable 50ml bottles
  • But tastes pretty genuine.. (Still more info on this would help clear any dodgy doubts on this)

    Heheheheh... as promised...

    • Sorry CollagenMax, sugar_cupcakes is alternating with Shi-Tsu for a while...
    • Results seemst the same as CollagenMax but ingredients seems less intrusive to the body
    • No more bad breakouts recently so skin is pretty well-behaved
    • Less tired looking skin lately (probably cos I get enough sleep too.. lol)
    • Younger lengluis, collagen drinks are just supplements so... no need to go all fanatic with them.. Just consume them when you think your skin needs a pick up..
    • And... choose your brand by the company's reputation and ingredients! (^o^)


    1. hi, may i ask do v need to drink collagen everyday to get the good result? did u heard b4 lennox firm up? any comment? what do u think about it? thanks..<3

    2. Hi ZoEll Boay,

      Hmm.. From lotsa Googling, I don't think you need to drink collagen everyday to get good results. If your body protein absorption rate is low, its not going to make much of a difference by drinking everyday. Perhaps as stated on the boxes, just a bottle every 3 days... (^o^)

      If any of you lengluis think otherwise, comments are more than welcomed..

    3. Oh and.. my mum is actually consuming lennox firm up. Honestly, I didn't quite like the taste. I don't know much about the efficacy though... 'cos mummy's skin has always look pretty nice from maintenance and I stopped consumption it after just 2 bottles. Hope this helps :p

    4. I like Shi-Tsu Beauty Drink too, because confidence for the product. My fren introduced me to try, taste i like it, result so far ok, like a bit fair than before, but just a little bit expensive, i bought RM 118 last time, where u buy RM 98? pls advise?

    5. Hi Anonymous,

    6. Watson is doing promotion now....where u spent at least RM20, u may purchase it RM9.95 per bottle now! just RM59.70 for 6 bottle..fast!!! fast grab it asap~~~ ^^

    7. Hi Anonymous,

      I know rite? LOL... Pretty great deal there :p

    8. hi,today i juz bought kinohimitsu BB drink and the shi-tsu collagen drinks for the first try of collagen drinks because my skin really..horrible..lol.And i like your blog and comment.Informative and abbreviated. Between, did u noe there is any side effect of every ingredients contained???

    9. Hi 薇薇恩,

      Thank you for you sweet comment! (^o^) huhuhu.. gloating already...

      From what I know, different ingredients affect individuals differently. Lengluis are afraid of preservatives because scientists says they can cause cancer... uh-huh.. And some lengluis body system just cannot tolerate certain kind of collagen derivatives... Again, it all depends on each lengluis body works...

      Hope this helps!

    10. Hi, I'm new to collagen drink n really attracted with this Shi-Tsu one but it's really not cheap . RM9.95 per bottle for same ml? Where can get it?

    11. Hi ChuChu,

      If you're from KL, you can get it at any Watson's store. I see that they are selling 10 bottles for RM98 again at the moment! :p

    12. Hi,
      Do you still consume this collagen drink?

      Btw, Livingsocial is having promotion for this.
