Halo Beauty Hair Skin Nails Booster – Weeks 2 & 3 Results

Hello and welcome back, lovelies! I have completed Weeks 2 and 3 of my 3 month challenge taking the Halo Beauty Hair Skin Nails Booster supplement. Read my Challenge post here. The clicky clicky will open in a separate window. 🙂

IMG_1421The product is $39.95 plus $4.95 shipping which made my total $44.90 for a 30 day supply. The daily intake is two capsules per day. I take two each morning with breakfast.

I still have not had any weird side effects, other than bright yellow pee about 30 minutes to an hour after taking the supplement. 🙂 Others have noted the same, so I’m not concerned.

Starting Week 2, I have experienced a slight bout with tiny whiteheads on my face, but they go away in 2-3 days. The breakouts haven’t been enough for me to stop taking the supplements. I am still experiencing the breakouts on Week 3, but again, I don’t know if the pimples are from the supplement and they’re not that bad. My routine has not changed; I wash my face in the morning and in the evening before bed. I also do a sheet mask 2-3 times a week.

I have not used foundation for just over a month now. I have been moisturizing, using primer, a highlight, blush and mascara.

Here are my BEFORE photos:BEFORE Halo Beauty

Here are my Week 2 results:Week 2 Halo BeautyYou can definitely see my skin is brighter in the Week 2 photos. The discoloration and my unsightly age spots have lightened.  The cystic acne on my chin is still gone, however, you can see the two pimples that only lasted 2-3 days. I also have noticed the fine lines around my lips have slightly diminished.

I forgot to take a photo of my nails at Week 2, but I will admit that I have not yet noticed much difference. The growth has not improved and they’re still brittle and peeling. I really don’t expect much for another couple of weeks. I also have not noticed much where my hair is concerned. The hair will be a bit tricky to document because my hair is already pretty healthy and soft, but I will do the best I can to provide updates.

Overall, my skin looks and feels soft. I have eczema breakouts every so often but have noticed that the dry, scaly skin has improved. I get patches under my arms, in my armpits and on my legs. I dry brush 2-3 times a week which also helps in maintaining soft, healthy looking skin.

Here are my Week 3 results: My skin has been freshly cleansed and I moisturized after I took the photos. Week 3 Halo Beauty.jpgMy skin looks brighter and my age spots look as if they’re continuing to get lighter in color. My redness isn’t quite as noticeable. I still have patchy discoloration on my cheeks, though it looks to be improving. I continue to get compliments on my skin at work. No one knows that I am taking a supplement. Week 3 Nails Halo BeautyMy nails have improved a little since starting the supplements. My cuticles aren’t as dry; upon inspection as I write this, my cuticles aren’t dry at all. My nail beds are a soft pink and actually look really good. I expect the nails to take a few more weeks before I growth results. When my nails are healthy, I keep them at an active length. Right now, as they are brittle and peeling, I keep them short.

At the 1 month mark, I will post all first month results side by side in one post. If you wish to see my Week 1 results, click here. The clicky clicky will open in a separate window.

I am excited to complete Month 1! Bottle #2 arrived yesterday!

What do you think of my Week 2 and 3 results? Are you taking the Halo Beauty Hair Skin Nails Booster supplement or any other supplement? What are your thoughts on supplements?

Halo Beauty Hair Skin Nails Booster -Week 1

Hello, lovelies! I have completed week 1 of my 3 month challenge taking the Halo Beauty Hair Skin Nails Booster supplement. Read my Challenge post here. The clicky clicky will open in a separate window. 🙂

I take two supplements each morning with breakfast.

I have not had any weird side effects, other than bright yellow pee about 30 minutes to an hour after taking the supplement. I have noticed a slight increase in my energy. I am usually yawny by early afternoon and have not been since day 1 of taking the supplement. I have also been going to the gym daily, which may have a part in my increased energy.

About three weeks before receiving my Halo Beauty supplements, I decided to stop using foundation. I have only been cleansing each morning, moisturizing, priming, using highlight and blush, as well as mascara and setting spray. I cleanse and moisturize my skin at night before bed. My skin did not improve from not using foundation. The only difference I noticed was that I didn’t have makeup settling into my fine lines and wrinkles making my skin appear younger. My before photos are taken the day before my Day 1 of taking the supplement.

Here are my week 1 photos:

You can see that the cystic acne on my chin has almost cleared up. The redness has greatly diminished. The slight redness on my cheeks has faded. My wrinkled forehead is still a wrinkled forehead. 😉  In these photos my skin is freshly cleansed and not yet moisturized. Halo Week 1 Collage

In all the below photos, my skin in the before photos is freshly cleansed and moisturized. The BEFORE photos are taken the day before Day 1 of taking the Halo Beauty supplement. In the week 1 result photos, my skin is freshly cleansed but NOT moisturized.

The cystic acne on my chin is almost cleared up. The two little bumps are no longer raised and red. I am a bit more red in the before photo. I also had a patch of dry skin on my chin from using hydrogen peroxide and apple cider vinegar prior to receiving my Halo Beauty Supplements. The dry skin cleared up after two days of taking the Halo Beauty Supplement. BeforeAfter Week 1

I don’t see much difference yet, other than my face isn’t as red. It has only been one week, though.  I am confident that my skin will continue to improve.

The left top and bottom photos are before Halo Beauty.  The right top and bottom are my 1 week results. Week 1 BeforeAfter

I have watched many reviews on Youtube and know that it will take weeks for any improvement to my hair and nails, however, I decided to post the before and week 1 results of my nails.Halo Week 1 Nails

Looking at my before and week 1 results, I can’t really complain about my skin as it really isn’t that bad. I have slight redness, sun spots and wrinkles. I am also 45 years old and didn’t really take care of my skin for the better part of 20+ years. It could be worse. My expectations for this supplement are to strengthen my brittle nails, improve redness and cystic acne on my face, as well as help with dry skin on my entire body. I do not expect my wrinkles to disappear, though I would like for my fine lines to diminish. 🙂 We’ll see!

I am surprised that I have not had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients considering I am allergic to most things that are natural and good for me. 😉

Continue following for weekly updates!

While my hair is pretty nice (it’s my best feature, if I do say so myself 😉 ), my nails have always been brittle, and my dry skin could use some help. I’m not too concerned with my fine lines and wrinkles, though it’d be a bonus if the supplement helped in diminishing the li’l boogers! I am also hoping the supplement will help with the cystic acne on my chin.

Here are my before photos:

For my challenge, I will take the supplement once a day starting today for three months while tracking my progress here with photos. I will post my results weekly.

Hair.

I have a lot of it.

It’s thick and curly and gets curlier the older I get.  Not sure why that is, but I’ll take curlier hair over no hair all day every day.

I’d have to say my hair is my best feature.  I receive the most compliments on my hair, with my big ol’ blue eyes being second. I’ve had just about every crazy hairstyle imaginable and in just about every color.  I’ve since mellowed and have been coloring my hair jet black for almost 10 years.


Other than coloring every 6-8 weeks, my hair care routine is fairly simple:

  • I don’t wash my hair on my days off.
  • The day before my days off I do not use conditioner. I only use shampoo.  I am about to go two days without washing so I minimize the use of products that make my scalp oily.
  • I NEVER brush my hair.  In fact, the only time my hair gets combed is when I go to the salon to have it cut. I run my fingers through my hair to remove any tangles.
  • I get haircuts on a regular basis. I try to have at least 3 inches cut every 6-8 months. This helps keep my hair healthy and soft.
  • I use a hair mask about once a month. My favorite is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning mask.
  • I don’t use products like hairspray, mousse, pomades, etc.  If I do use a product, I use Loma Serum or a Garnier Fructis leave-in conditioner.
  • If I put my hair up in a ponytail, I use elastic hair ties that reduce breakage. I don’t make it a habit to pull my hair back in a ponytail unless I’m at the gym.

As with skin, your genes, hormones, and diet play a part in hair health.

What do you do for hair care?  What are your favorite products?
