Imedeen – Ime-whaaa?

By | July 10 2007 | 16 Comments

We had a post the other day about Danone’s new Essensis product, a yoghurt and probiotic drink that claims to be a dermonutrition solution that will have a positive impact on the skin. You lot were sceptical, but in fact it’s not necessarily a new concept.

Imedeen, a very popular (and pricey) supplement claims to do the same thing. They say that their “unique combination of natural marine fish extract, vitamin C and zinc helps to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles from the inside out“, and “with regular use, Imedeen helps give the skin’s surface a clearer and more radiant appearance and maintain its ability to bind moisture“.

You should have glowing, soft skin after taking a course of 2 tablets per day for the recommended 12 weeks. And at about €50 for 60 tablets, I wonder would an auld microdermabrasion treatment at your nearest reputable salon not have the same visual effect?

Let us know your thoughts – have any of you tried Imedeen, and if so, what did you think?

    Ive never tried Imedeen but for me, Zinc and Vitamin C work wonders.

    i always wondered was this any good- i’d be interested in trying it tho. my sis swears by taking vitamin E capsules for good skin

    I rub vitamin e oil on my face at night if my skin needs a pick me up.

    i was going to try them but i kept hearing horror stories of weight gain every time i mentioned them. seemingly they increase your appitite.i m not really willing to take that chance.

  • Bee says:

    I think this is the one I tried and didn’t find it any good.

  • Lynnie Lynnie says:

    I used the Imedeen tan enhancer capsules, you are supposed to take them before you go on your hols & then during sun exposure to prepare your skin & help you develop a golden tan that lasts.

    They. Were. Sh!te.

    Made no difference to me whatsoever, & I followed the instructions to the letter. Wouldn’t buy anything else this crowd makes as a result!

  • Bee says:

    Aha, I used the tan ones too and agree with Lynnie.

  • Jules says:

    I’ve used Perfectil and that was no great shakes. Can’t imagine Imedeen is any better.

    I’ve been taking Omega-3 and Vit. B supplements for the past six months and my hair and skin are in much better condition AND those supplements are only about 8 euro each.

    I tried Perfectil too and didn’t find it made any difference. I don’t think anything seems to really though it’s always kind of bad, not terrible but never good! Tried evening primrose capsules too. Although Jules those Omega-3 and Vit B sound good..

    Have thought about the Imeeden price put me off. Have tried Perfectil and no big difference. I think the cod liver oil works as well and certainly is a lot cheaper.
