Neocell Beauty Bursts & Keratin Hair Volumizer Review & Giveaway

When Neocell approached me to review their beauty within product line I was more thrilled about it than swiping a new lipstick. I'm a big believer in natural health & beauty and have had their Collagen supplements on my wishlist for awhile now. I selected two of their newest products to try, Beauty Bursts, which are Collagen fruit chews and Keratin Hair Volumizer. Both boast claims of better skin and stronger hair and nails. I've taken these for 30 days now and have had excellent results with them!  

You can also WIN these products for yourself by entering my giveaway at the end of the review!

Having beautiful & radiant skin has never been so easy- or so delicious. NeoCell Beauty Bursts deliver high absorption beauty nutrients in delectable, gourmet soft chews.  Collagen Type 1 & 3 is the body's beauty protein & strengthens skin, hair & nails.  Hyaluronic Acid is know as "Nature's Moisturizer" & hydrates the skin.  Vitamin C is essential to boosting collagen in the skin.  Together, these three beauty nutrients work together to build beautiful skin from the inside out.

For a "vitamin" these taste great! Like fruit caramels, not chalky or unappealing at all. They're individually wrapped so they stay fresh and are easy to pop in your bag. They also come in mint chocolate which I want to try next. I kept these in my candy jar and they started to become like a daily treat than a health supplement.
Keratin Hair Volumizer
Keratin hair volumizer is an all-natural solution for strong, lustrous, and thick healthy hair that starts from the inside. Dry, brittle,thinning hair is associated with a lack of nutrients that are essential to strong and resilient hair. Keratin Hair Volumizer contains clinically proven ingredients to enhance hair strength and reduce normal hair loss.

Key Ingredients:
Cynatine HNS Solubilized Keratin: The ability to convert natural keratin into a functional form that is bio-available to the body is a recent advancement. Cynatine HNS® is solubilized enabling it to be both bioactive and bioavailable in the body, which allows it to bind with hair. Cynatine HNS® has been clinically proven to reduce hair loss from washing, improve hair strength and improve the brightness and luster of hair.*
Hydrolyzed Super Collagen: Hydrolyzed Super Collagen™ is a structural component of hair, skin and nail health. Super Collagen™ is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline, which are the main constituents of collagen in the hair. Research suggests that collagen supplementation stimulates fibroblasts at the hair root, resulting in increased diameter of the hair shaft. NeoCell's pharmaceutical grade Super Collagen™ is enzymatically hydrolyzed, providing a collagen amino acid ratio with low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability.*
Amla Extract: Amla, or Indian Gooseberry, has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-aging properties. Amla provides high concentrations of Vitamin C and and has been revered for being a powerful antioxidant.*
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is an important part of optimal collagen formation.*

I took two beauty bursts and two keratin vitamins in my daily supplement regimen. I follow a low sugar diet so I limited myself to two a day instead of the suggested 4 because I was also taking the Keratin supplement which contains Collagen as well. You will likely see even better results if you take the recommended dosage. Full results are seen in 30-60 days, though I noticed benefits right away.

Any one who has dealt with thyroid difficulties or similar health issues knows it comes with a host of problems effecting your skin, nails, hair..really great stuff! Of course a supplement isn't a health cure fix all but I fully believe that natural supplements can be beneficial. I had tried biotin in the past with out much success, Collagen seemed to offered similar benefits when it comes to health of your hair, nails, and skin so it sounded promising!

Hair
By the fourth week I noticed a shine to my hair that anyone with processed lightened hair knows is is almost impossible to achieve. I also had noticeably less fall out and breakage. This supplement didn't make my hair grow any faster, but it's not supposed to. I have baby fine hair texture so I know I'll never wake up to Gisele Bundchen level thick and glorious hair but I felt like there was a bit of added thickness to it. Sort of as if you had applied a volumizer. The shimmering luster and less fallout was really where I saw the difference in my hair while taking the keratin supplement.

Skin
Pretty immediately, like within 3 days, I noticed a "glow" to my skin, that just did a tumeric skin mask kind of skin glow. By the end of the month as my body adapted to the collagen that glow wasn't as apparent as it was initially, but my skin was still hydrated and clear.  Rarely did I get a breakout, when I did they were minimal and any marks seemed to go away in half the time. I have some fine lines but my wrinkles aren't noticeable enough to tell much of a difference, but from the reviews I've read on iherb these supplements are amazing for helping to fill in wrinkles in mature skin.

Lips
I hadn't read anything about Collagen doing such amplifying things for your lips so I almost thought I was a little crazy thinking this. After a week I noticed my lips looked fuller...thinking maybe it's just a placebo effect and I AM crazy. Nope! My lips had a bit of pillowyness the whole time Ive been taking these. It's a your lips but better effect.

When combined with using the Lipplumpingshop Lip Plumping Device (see my review of this magical little beauty tool here) my lips continued to keep that fullness, especially the bottom lip. Another benefit is moisture, you'll be reaching for the lip balm a lot less. It had me thinking why do people get lip injections when you can just go natural :) Really great stuff for your pout!

Nails
This little nail might not look like much, but I've never been able to grow my nails past my fingertips. My wimpy brittle nails I've always hated. They've become so much stronger! I don't keep my nails long, but if you do these will likely help you to achieve longer nails. I'm just happy with not having such weak ones!

Health
Another benefit from the Collagen supplements were not beauty involved at all, but what it does for aches and pains. I had an intense pinched nerve in my neck for over a month that I could still feel the repercussions from. While taking collagen my joint pain diminished greatly and I recover more quickly after workouts. 

There were no real negative side effects to speak of other than being thirstier and once you stop taking them you lose the effects. I thought my face looked a little "fat", but maybe my face just IS fat. Collagen is plumping and the fullness is what fills in the lines and helps you look healthier so whatev chubby cheeks :)

I completely love what Neocell Collagen and Keratin supplements have done for my skin, nails, & hair. Neocell's collagen products will be a staple in my supplement regimen from now on, if not just to keep the fuller lips and stronger nails! As always check with your doctor before starting any supplement regimen.
