Hi Loves! Some of you may remember that this winter I had a couple posts talking about my dry skin and splitting, thin nails. This has baffled me because this was a first for me. I’ve always had nice strong nails, to have them barely making it past my finger tip without breaking was a big issue….and…a little depressing! 🙂
I tried various nail & cuticle products to help rescue them and it may have helped a little – but not that much. Around February I started seeing this product being advertised and knew a lot of bloggers & vloggers recommend biotin to help with nails so figured I’d give it a shot.
I have taken both the Extra Strength Capsuls, and the Gummies. *Disclaimer – I was sent the gummies by Smiley360 to try for free – I only purchased the extra strength myself.* After about three weeks of taking the extra strength, and then a month of taking the gummies only – I can honestly say my nails are coming back to their old self! They are thicker & stronger than they’ve been for months.
Now – time for some details from Natures Bounty about the Gummies.
Looking good and feeling great has never been this delicious! Nature’s Bounty® Optimal Solutions® Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies contains just the right balance of nutrients to support lustrous hair, healthy nails and vibrant skin, all in a delicious strawberry flavored gummy.*
Nature’s Bounty® Optimal Solutions® Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies provides you with the vital nutrients your body needs to support your natural beauty from within.* Vitamin E and Vitamin C are antioxidants. Vitamin E contributes to skin health, and Vitamin C is involved in collagen production and formation, which forms the basis for vibrant skin.* Biotin helps to maintain healthy hair and promotes healthy nails by acting at the nail matrix, the base of the nail.*

Bottom Line —
These are a buy for me AND unlike some gummies – these taste really great!! My boss said they reminded her of strawberry candy! However, I can’t really say if my skin & hair are improved. My face is clearing and bright but that could be the changing season and getting rid of the dry winter air. I can honestly say that I did see a pretty big change in the quality of my nails. I kind of wished I had taken a before picture of my nails to show you the difference but unfortunately I didn’t. My problem was changing out my polish a lot and using acetone on my nails – I’ve since quit that and gone back to a more gentle nail polish remover as well as using cuticle oil and a good hand lotion. I think a combination of all of those have helped improve my nails.
These may not work for every one – I’ve tried things like this in the past that had glowing recommendations and were just a waste of time and money for me. I can tell you – I like the results that I’m getting and will finish my bottle of gummies in a couple days and then go back to taking the capsules and then…probably buy more!
Have you tried these or taken biotin to help your skin & nails?
