Product Review: DHC Collagen

Monday, August 28, 2017

     I've known the brand DHC for a long time now because my cousin who lives in Japan said that it's a good brand. It's a brand of cheap yet effective food supplements ranging from nutritional, whitening, and anti-aging ones. They also have skin care products like the infamous DHC Cleansing Oil and DHC Eyelash Tonic.

     Anyhoo, Cheska's Online Store sent me the trending supplement from DHC as of the moment- DHC Collagen last month to try. Collagen supplement is perfect for my age and it's one of the supplements that I need now as collagen production in the mid 30's starts to decline. Sharing with you my thoughts on DHC Collagen after the jump

Product Review: DHC Collagen

     This collagen is in tablet form, round in shape and the color is light yellow. There's a subtle milky scent but my sensitive nose can smell a faint fishy smell which I can tolerate so I have no problem taking it. I took it for more than a month. The photo you'll see below was taken a week ago. Pardon my brows, I know it's not in good shape as I'm trying to grow it until now. I'm happy to see that I don't have a double chin in this angle compared to my photos when I was taking Meiji Collagen. 

Product Review: DHC Collagen
I only have 4 hours of sleep here, you can see it in my eyelids and eyebags but not that noticeable, right?

What I like:
  • DHC Collagen is one of the cheapest collagen supplements that's available in online shops as of the moment.
  • It is FDA approved and has passed strict Japan FDA standards.
  • Packaged in a resealable pouch that's also available in 20, 60, and 90 days variant.
  • It also contains other ingredients like Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B2 which has other health and skin benefits.
  • It's easy to take, no preparation needed.
  • I didn't experience any discomforts like vomiting, headache, nausea, breakouts or whatsoever.
  • My skin is supple and soft to touch after two months of taking this supplement. It looks shiny and healthy but not the oily type of shine.
  • No weight gain and double chin after taking this for a month which is a plus for me. I had weight issues with some collagen brands that I've tried before.
  • There were times that I see my cheeks 
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the package.

What I don't like:
  • The tablet has a slight fishy smell.
  • Not easily accessible. You have to purchase it online.
  • It only contains 2050 mg of collagen per 6 tablets. Meaning, the daily intake of collagen is not achieved just by taking 6 tablets since 5,000 mg is required if you are 30 years old and above.

Will I purchase? Yes, even though it only contains half of the required collagen intake I find this brand effective!

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. DHC is one of the cheapest and effective brands of supplement in Japan according to my cousin who lives there that's why I'm not surprised that this collagen is effective in making my skin soft, smooth, and supple to touch. Japanese has the highest standards when it comes to food supplements so I have no doubt in taking them.

     This collagen supplement is best taken with an empty stomach. First thing in the morning and before bed time. I highly recommend this to those who are new in taking collagen supplements and long time users who are already immune with other brands.

DISCLAIMER: This product was sent to me by Cheska's Online Store for review. The views expressed here are my honest opinion about the product. What works for me may not work for you or vice versa. I don't take collagen supplement on a regular basis. My review is based on my experience during the time and period I'm taking it.


  1. Hello Ms. Kath ok lang b sya icombo sa vit.c at glutacaps? Thanks. Happt New Year! :-*

    1. Hi Ruby Anne,

      Yes, no problem. Mas maganda may combo na collagen if you're also into anti-aging.

  2. Hi ask ko lang ms. Kath, why 5 tabs lang yung take nyo at nung iba, while yung iba 6 tabs as per indicated sa packaging, ganon din sa dhc placenta, 2 tabs din take ng iba, kahit 3 tabs naka indicate s packaging? I am really confused.

    1. Hi SaoirseBliss,

      Thank you so much for asking the question. Kasi if you'll compute the contents of DHC collagen per tab, makukulang sya for 1 month. Like if there is 300 tablets na good for 60 days, when you divide it ang tamang dose is good for 60 days or two months.

  3. hi kath,

    just would like to be clarrified then kasi ang sabi 5000mg is required for 30 y/o and up. so does this mean it should be increased feom 6 tabs/day to 12 tabs/day for me since i am 41?

    1. Hi Leng,

      No need to adjust the dose. You can take 5 or 6 tabs a day of DHC Collagen. I took 5 lang to maximize na good for more than 30 days yung isang pack na to. In my case parang umabot yata ng 36 days. But you can take 6 para 30 days exact yung 180 tablets.

  4. Hi kath , okay lang ba sya isabay pagtake sa Myra e400?

    1. Hi Lynie,

      Yes, pwede naman just give interval sa pag-inom or follow the instructions sa packaging.

  5. Hi po ask ko lang kng pwede ko xa inumin kng nagpapabreastfeed po ako..sana makasagot po kau thanks

    1. Hi,

      Not allowed po for breastfeeding moms.

  6. San pwedeng bumili ng dhc collagen mis kath?

  7. Hi! Ask ko lng kng pde sya s akin....may maintenance n kc ako n lozartan. Thanks!

    1. Hi,

      I'm not sure though but I think it's better to ask your doctor about it. Better safe than sorry.
