More Beauty Drinks Like Borba and Glowelle on the Way

Cosmeceutical Beverages Want You to Drink Up

Ah, drinks that are supposed to improve your skin. You all may remember my not-so-amazing encounters with Glowelle and Borba, and at this point I don't think I ever want to put another vial of powdered "nutraceuticals" in my water bottle. But just when I thought the Splenda headaches and weirdly thick tinctures were behind me, I find out that there are a whole bunch of new drinks, including an antiaging version, an organic version, and one made, appealingly, with cow mammary gland proteins, slated for release over the next several months.

This segment of the beauty biz keeps growing, but I have yet to find a miracle drink. I can only conjecture that the manufacturing costs must be so low and the profit margin so high that even something that sells poorly still turns a profit. Maybe there is some wonder beverage out there just waiting for me to drink it, but I'm definitely in the doubting camp. Plus, maybe I'm a paranoid hypochondriac, but I worry about vitamin overload. Have you ever had a positive experience with a beauty drink, or are you sticking with water like me?
