|Beautify Me Vitamin Complex – £15 for 28 capsules (two weeks worth) or £24 for 1 month|
I have to admit that this isn’t really the kind of thing I’d spend my own money on, but when I was lucky enough to be given these by the lovely Gemma of Miss Makeup Magpie I decided that they were worth trying. Vitamins wise, I only really take Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin C and Echinacea only a regular basis (the latter because it’s in my favourite tea) so I was intrigued to see what the Beautify Me supplements could do for me.
The Beautify Me vitamin complex contains a variety of vitamins & minerals including marine collagen (which brings images of dolphins getting lip fillers to mind…), Vitamin C, zinc and Biotin amongst others. Apparently, these little capsules help to support cell growth and support healthy skin, hair and nails. This packet contains 28 capsules which is enough for two weeks – I’m not entirely convinced that two weeks is long enough to see proper results however I’m not planning on buying any myself.
Now that I’ve taken these supplements for the whole two weeks I thought I would share my thoughts on them, but it is kind of a first impressions thing as like I said before I feel like you’d need more than two weeks to judge fully. I didn’t think these were doing too much for me, but on reflection my hair is feeling a lot stronger and I’m noticing considerably less hair loss. My nails are a little bit stronger, but still not ideal and this could be down to the fact that I’ve not really been painting them recently in an attempt to strengthen them. Skin-wise I’ve seen very little difference, however I’ve been feeling a little run down lately and whenever this happens I always think you can see it in my skin. The collagen & antioxidants in these capsules are meant to be really good for anti-ageing but that’s not really a big issue for me at my age – it may have more of an impact on someone with slightly older skin.
Overall, I’m not too blown away by these but this could be because I didn’t really feel like I needed them. If you feel like your hair, skin & nails could do with some TLC these could be a good idea for you, but I would do some more research in to other ways to get the vitamins as I think that with these you’re paying for the pretty packaging and idea of “beautifying”.
Have you tried these? I’m interested to hear how other people have found them, I feel like I’ve been a bit hard on them!
