Beauty up your body in the new year with Beauty Infusion

The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to work. It’s also time to get your body back in time from holidays. Eating and drinking too much, staying up to late and laying around have probably taken a toll on your body and your complexion.  A great way to get your body looking better on the outside is to start on the inside.

Beauty Infusion is a daily supplement powder that helps strengthen your nails, hair and skin, build up collagen levels  and provide anti-oxidant protection. Neocell sent me a sample of Beauty Infusion and here is  a quick review:

The first thing I noticed is my nails. I usually have to use topical treatments to get rid of the ridges. Within a day or two of using Beauty Infusion, my the ridges started to level and my nails got stronger. I also noticed my hair was thicker and stronger. Based on the results in my nails, I would use this product again. I have used other supplements that claim to help your nails, but they really only make them grow longer, not grow thicker. The only issue I had with it is that you need to drink it on an empty stomach. Which really isn’t a big deal, but I already take another supplement daily  (on an empty stomach) and it is hard to add in another.

Beauty Infusion comes in three flavors and retails for about $34.99. You can find it online and at retailers like Vitamin World, Sprouts and Whole Foods. Visit neocell.com for a store locater.

FYI – Here is a shot of the label:
