Beauty starts inside – a review of NeoCell Beauty Bursts, Keratin Hair Volumizer and Eat Pretty + giveaway

Today I want to share two products with you that are award winners. Neocell’s Keratin Hair Volumizer was named the Best New Product in Delicious Living’s Beauty and Body Awards. The other product, Beauty Bursts, has won several prestigious awards, including a Best of Natural Beauty award from Better Nutrition, a Taste for Life Essentials award and the award for Best Beauty Supplement from Delicious Living. Today I’ll talk about them and at the end you’ll be able to enter a giveaway to try to win these for yourself.

I received these products from their PR company and I’ve been using them myself. I’m not a doctor (obviously) but I can tell you what I found with these and what I like about them. As with any supplement you should consult with your doctor before taking them.

NeoCell Keratin Hair Volumizer are pills that you take morning and evening to help regain the shine and beauty of your hair. As I’ve aged I’ve found that the thick head of hair that was my glory isn’t quite the same. My hair has gotten thinner and takes more to make it look quite as lustrous as it used to. This supplement was created to work on your hair from the inside. It contains Vitamin C to help with collagen formation; Amla Extract, a centuries old Ayurvedic plant that is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory for strong hair growth; soluble keratin; and Super Collagen. The result is stronger and brighter hair that is helping with the thinning. Just as important as what’s in it is what’s NOT in it – soy, wheat, lactose, starch, yeast, or artificial flavors. gluten free.

Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Soft Chews

The other item that I’ve been using for the last few months is Beauty Bursts Soft Chews by NeoCell. These also add collagen to my life with Vitamin C and Collagen 1 & 3. In addition to helping strengthen my hair, these strengthen my nails as well. This winter has been especially hard on us. From previous experience I know that my nails become more brittle in winter but this year I’ve been using these soft chews and haven’t had breaks (where’s the wood to go knock on!!!!). They are available in two delicious flavors. As a dedicated chocoholic I prefer the Chocolate Mint ones and they also come in Fruit Punch.  Directions say to take 2 – 4 per day. I take 2 after dinner as a little snack. A 60 count bag will last me a month for under $20.

EAT PRETTYeat pretty coverFor a change of pace I have a book that I’ve been reading and have found to be a great source of information. It’s called Eat Pretty – Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out. The author, Jolene Hart is a beauty and health coach who’s been certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Eat Pretty

Eat Pretty

The author describes the beauty nutrition of the foods we eat or the foods we should eat but maybe don’t. We know why we should have green leafy vegetables for our health but do we know what they do for our looks?

She divides foods up into the seasons that they’ll be the freshest and most prevalent in. “Spring Beauty Awakening”, “Abundant Summer Beauty”, “Restore and Recharge in Autumn”, and “Glow Through the Winter”. In addition to all the reasons to eat each kind of food she has included some recipes. The MSRP is $16.95 but you can find it for less on Amazon (book or kindle).
