Former TOWIE star Sam Faiers has made a fortune from her skincare supplement business, Revive Collagen, which she launched during the lockdown in 2020. The brand, which has celebrity fans such as Amanda Holden, Oti Mabuse and Paloma Faith, was reportedly built by Sam “from the ground up” with her business partner, entrepreneur John Bailey.
Revive Collagen: A Success Story
Revive Collagen is a range of collagen drinks and supplements that claim to improve skin health and appearance. The brand has become so popular that it sells one box every 90 seconds, according to a source close to Sam. The source told MailOnline: “She took no external investment and built the business from the ground up with her business partner. With the business being profitable from day one and set to launch across the US next month, she firmly has her eyes set on becoming the global market leader in ingestible collagen.”
The brand is currently stocked in over 2,000 stores across the UK, including Harrods, Boots, and Holland & Barrett. It has also expanded to the US market, with Saks Fifth Avenue as one of its stockists. The source added: “Whilst she’s had a couple of business failures along the way, she’s definitely struck gold with Revive Collagen.”
Sam Faiers: A Savvy Businesswoman
Sam Faiers rose to fame when she starred on ITV’s reality show The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) from 2010 to 2014. She then appeared on other shows such as Celebrity Big Brother and The Mummy Diaries, which documented her life as a mother of three children with her partner Paul Knightley.
Sam has also ventured into various businesses over the years, such as fashion, fragrance, jewellery and books. She has collaborated with brands such as Quiz Clothing, River Island and Very.co.uk. She has also launched her own online boutique, All Bits London, and her own perfume line, La Bella.
According to The Sun, Sam’s net worth is estimated to be around £8.8 million as of 2021. However, with the success of Revive Collagen, which earned her £13.2 million in three years, her fortune is likely to increase significantly.
Sam Faiers: A Happy Bride-To-Be?
Sam Faiers has been with her partner Paul Knightley since 2014. They have three children together: Paul Jr., Rosie and Arthur. The couple has been living together in a £2.25 million mansion in Surrey since 2019.
Sam has made no secret of her desire to get married to Paul. She has dropped hints to him several times on their show The Mummy Diaries. She has also revealed that she has given him an “engagement deadline” of 2023.
Last month, Sam sparked engagement rumours when she posted a selfie from their holiday in Dubai with a diamond ring on her finger. However, she later clarified that it was not an engagement ring and that Paul had not proposed yet.
Sam said: “I wear a ring on that finger all the time and I never really think anything of it… It was just a ring that I bought for myself in duty free… I’m not engaged.”
She added: “I do want to get married one day but I’m not putting any pressure on it… When it happens it happens.”
