Vita Sciences Maxasorb B12 Vitamin B12 Cream REVIEW

Product Description

Vitamin B12 has restorative properties, so it's no surprise that vitamin B12 cream is quickly becoming one of the most popular anti-aging serums for skin renewal and superb moisturizing benefits. It's great for people suffering from eczema or psoriasis, or just flaky, itchy skin from aging. Vitamin B12 in a cream nourishes dry skin in a way that steroid moisturizers prescribed for eczema don't. While many medications for chronic skin rashes can have harsh side effects and actually worsen already itchy and sore skin, vitamin B12 cream soothes and nourishes. Many patients find that red scaly skin patches disappear within days of treatment, without any adverse reactions. Maxasorb B12 Cream is scientifically formulated to topically deliver vitamin B12. Each full application of lotion provides 320 micrograms of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) plus 120 micrograms of vitamin B3 (niacin) and 10 micrograms of folate. Using Maxasorb B12 as directed is a safe and reliable method of absorbing key B-vitamins. Infused with antioxidants and moisturizers, greaseless Maxasorb dissolves effortlessly into your skin for maximum vitamin absorption.

 My opinion

                  The last time I went to see my doctor, I was told that  my red blood cells count was low. As a result,  I have been taking B12 tablets ever since. You  need B12 to make red blood cells to carry oxygen through Your body. I get cranky and  extremely tired  if I don't take my B12 tablets regularly. Not having enough red blood cells in your body can also affect your hair because the scalp needs oxygen, too.  I never had a problem with taking pills. But my dad on the other hand does! I guess it's hard for him to swallow something without chewing it up first. Well,  if you are not a big fan of swallowing pills, and you have a B12 deficiency, this might be just the right product for you. I requested to review this product because I don't consume enough B12 from the foods that I eat. And I also suffer from vitamin B12 anemia, a condition where the digestive system is not able to absorb the vitamin.   Another reason is because my skin is always so dry during the colder months,  resulting in me having noticeable fine lines on my hands.

                  Vita Sciences Maxasorb B12 Vitamin B12 Cream  Worked great on my skin. I noticed how quickly the product soaked in my skin after applying two pumps on my inner wrist once a day. The product also has a minty fresh scent that does not linger. It leaves the skin very soothing while keeping it moisturized. I also rubbed the remaining of the product on my hands because it's the driest part of my body. I did notice the reduction of a few fine lines on both  hands in a matter of weeks. But most importantly, I felt shockingly energized.  I guest it's because I did not expect the product to work as promised. My hair and nails grew stronger, too. Now I want to slap myself for not taking before and after pictures of my nails! I will probably do that next time I buy the product.

While I don't have any problem with swallowing a pill, I think having a b12 cream is a great concept; and it is convenient too. I received the product very fast. I also love the packaging. I keep mine on my desk where I can see it in the morning. The best thing is that I can just apply it once, and I'm done! No need for a full glass of water or anything ( not that drinking water is a bad thing). I will definitely buy this product in the future!

Looking Chic For Less: Chevron Prints Blouse And Red Jeans


             Before I say anything about my chevron blouse, our blog was featured on the Purex insiders website on May 18th, 2015. You can read the post here if you missed it. I am so excited! Thanks for all your support. This blog is nothing without you!


              A big hair often calls for something a little retro; something bold that makes the eyes go up and down. Chevron prints have made such a big comeback since their popularity in the 1970s. Amal Clooney wore the prints so elegantly here. Her Giambattista Valli pants cost $1,550, but my chevron blouse only cost $9.00 at  Target. Hey, we are both wearing chevron, right. Lol! I match the top with my only pair of red jeans. Am I the only one who has more blue jeans than any other colors? Since the print is so vibrant I try not to overdo it with too much accessories. I kept it simple and completed the outfit with my  black shoes. This outfit may not be decent enough for church, but I wore it to my friend's daughter's graduation ceremony last Monday.




 I love the open-back



Which prints will you be rocking this summer?
 

Hair of The Week: Put a Scarf On It!

http://www.chicfromhair2toe.com/2015/05/hair-of-week-put-scarf-on-it.html

         Hello darlings!! After removing the twists this week, my hair felt really dry and crunchy. Spraying  a mixture of water and oils did not help much. I used a lot of synthetic hair, which prevented the mix to get to my hair. It's a good thing I did not make the twists too small. Removing them was easy and I could not wait to wash my hair.

#WashDayExperience


{1} I detangled my hair with Alberto V05 tea therapy again.

The Wash Day Experience{2} I had to use the Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 moisture care shampoo because I have to review it soon, but I am not a big fan of shampoos. 

{3} I did a quick oil rinse because my hair felt so dry after I used the shampoo.

{4} I used my Arvazallia conditioner after the oil rinse

{5} Dried with a T-shirt for about 15 minutes.

{6} I applied my DIY leave-in conditioner, followed by Jamaican black castor oil and let my hair air dry.

            Summertime is when everybody is out is about. You need a hairstyle that can get you out of the house quick when you have to run errands. A straw hat can always help if you are in a hurry, but having the hair in a high bun offers many benefits. This hairstyle can protect your edges. You can even go to bed with it because your ends are also protected.  Oh, I am wearing extensions in the middle if you are wondering. I love it!
How was your wash day?

6 Powerful All Natural Hair Remedies In Your Kitchen


               I always get so exited when I hear about  products or  foods that promote healthy, beautiful hair while making it grow thicker. The foods listed below can also make your hair grow back if you have vitamin deficiency like I do. This is not a blog post about how to make your hair grow longer faster. These foods may not make your hair grow as fast as you want, but having longer hair always starts from the inside out.   If you've been wondering if I take hair growth supplements, I can tell you right now, I do! I take iron because I have an iron deficiency. And I also take Vitamin B12 ( the real thing) because it makes my hair feel stronger. I do not take biotin because I think I get enough from the rice that I eat every other day. I have used avocado oil on my hair before. I even mixed fresh avocados with honey and extra virgin olive oil and used it as a deep conditioner. Today's post will focus on what's in those foods in your pantry that makes them so good for your hair. And the good thing is, you only need a few servings a week.



Dark Chocolate


Natural remedy: Cocoa flavonols
Why it's good for you: Chocolate improves blood flow and circulation to the scalp. It delivers nutrients to the hair and prevents it from getting dry and brittle.


Spinach

Natural Remedy: Iron
Why it's good for you:  Gives your hair fullness and body. It's best absorbed by the body when taken with vitamin C. Iron deficiency is the second cause of hair loss, according to Dr. Mickey Barber, of the age management institute Cenegics Carolinas. If you keep seeing patches on your scalp, it is time to go green.

Blackberries and Raspberries
 


Natural Remedy: Ellagic acid                                             
Why it's good for you: Protects the hair against UV rays. Using a product that has at least an SPF 30 is beneficial for your hair if you cannot get it from the food you eat. Some companies call it an "all-over sunscreen" It is good for your hair too.


Fresh Avocados


Natural remedy: Oleic acid, copper
Why it is good for you: Copper is a collagen booster, and collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Fresh avocados add a small amount of protein to the hair while helping it retain moisture. 


Wild Salmon

Natural remedy: Omega-3 fatty acids
Why it's good for you: This nourishing ingredient maintains the scalp's natural oil, helping your hair to stay moisturized.




Greek Yogurt
Natural Remedy: Calcium
Why it's good for you: Stronger and shinier hair. The low-fat versions of Greek Yogurts has vitamin B5 and vitamin D which are linked to hair and follicle health, according to WebMD.




       There are so many foods in your kitchen that are beneficial for your hair and can make it grow longer and stronger. I did not cover eggs, which is rich in vitamin D and protein. Please tell me in the comment box below if I missed something.  It is probably in your kitchen right now!
 

Color Me Red: Siren Red That Is

Siren red


           The color that sounds the alarms for all emergencies makes no apologies when it comes to being flamboyant. It is an attention grabber in its own right; a crimson touch that burns so bright. Little is required to make a fashion statement with a color that gives life to so many outfits. A color that can be balanced, toned down, and stay clean at the same time, does require some VIP treatment. Siren red definitely puts black in the red seat!

Keep it balanced

night life

Tone it down
Red and blue

Keep it clean


Keep it clean

 Would you wear this color? Based on your own personal style, of course! 
 

Wash Day + Hair of the Week | Headband Tuck and Cover Twists


                 Hello to all my readers in America and around the world! I sound like Wolf Blitzer in the situation room, right? Lol:-) The hats are officially off for some of us. We are letting the hair breath and trying different hairstyles.  Did you know that Head & Shoulders makes products for textured hair now? I kid you not! The packaging specifically says " For textured hair" What does that even mean? The texture of any hair type is the measure of the circumference of the hair strand itself. Hair experts classify the texture of hair as being coarse, fine, or medium. Can we all pretend that they are talking to me? Because I have coarse hair, and  coarse hair has the largest circumference. Well,  I used their  "Textured hair" line, and I cannot wait to tell you what I think about it. 

#WashDayExperience

{1} Detangled with Alberto V05 Tea Therapy conditioner

{2} Shampooed with Head and Shoulders 2-in-1 moisture care Shampoo and Conditioner

{3} Deep conditioned with Arvazallia  Hydrating Argan Oil Mask for about 30 minutes.

{4} Rinsed my hair and added 1 part Aloe Vera juice mixed with two parts of water.

{5} After my hair was about 80% dry, I added some Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner and sealed the moisture in with some Jamaican black castor oil.


Hair of the week



                     The headband that I am wearing is actually a necklace. I tucked it in with the twists to add some color. I am also using a black elastic headband under it. I tucked and covered the black headband with the twists. I was not sure what to call this hairstyle, but I think that the name in the title was a perfect way to describe it. Our hair needs protection at all times. With summer being here, having loose hair on our back is certainly not a good idea. I think this is a cute hairstyle for summer.  What do you think?

Renuzit Pearls Scents Home Style Challenge | REVIEW + GIVEAWAY

http://www.chicfromhair2toe.com/2015/05/renuzit-pearls-scents-home-style.html

             I have no skills when it comes to anterior decorating. I tend to add too much, and turn the room into an overwhelming mess. When I was offered the opportunity to challenge myself through a home decorating project, I said to myself, how hard can it be?
I know you can feel the sarcasm in my voice, but let me tell you more! Renuzit creates these long-lasting scented pearls. They come in a 9-ounce jar with a cutout cover that lets the most refreshing scents out.  They eliminate odors and puts you in the best mood. I received two different scents to facilitate my review and help me with the project. The Renuzit Home Style Challenge is all about freshness and cleanliness. My assignment was to add a little bit of both to a specific area in my home that I have always wanted to change a little.  Of course I picked my  master bathroom! How challenging can that be, right?

 About the product:





Renuzit Pearl Scents ( Blue Sky Breeze pictured here)


http://www.chicfromhair2toe.com/2015/05/renuzit-pearls-scents-home-style.html

             Renuzit Pearl Scents is a pretty odor neutralizer that fills your home with refreshing fragrances that last up to 30 days. And with this charming little jar, there’s no need for electric plugs or flames. Simply, set it down and it continuously leaves your room with a light and fresh scent.

Available in:

http://www.chicfromhair2toe.com/2015/05/renuzit-pearls-scents-home-style.html

  • Pure Breeze
  • After the Rain
  • Tranquil
  • Serenity
  • Seductive Pineapple

A little trip to TJ-MAXX

http://www.chicfromhair2toe.com/2015/05/renuzit-pearls-scents-home-style.html

                The first part of the challenge was to use the $50.00 gift card that I received to do  a little shopping for my new project.You will be amazed at how much you can get for $50.00 at TJ-Maxx.


               I have always wanted to turn my bathroom into a place like the spa. As soon as I opened my little Renuzit scented pearls jar the day before, the ocean came to mind. So, I went for a blue that is closer to the color of the sea.  In this before and after pictures, I removed my vase filled with UNSCENTED blue pearls and  replaced it with this faux white orchid that comes in a blue vase. The shine just attracted me to it. Instead of having all of my things all over the place, I nicely placed them in a colorful fish decorated tray. I later added some seashells in the tray:-)

What's a bathroom without scented candles?

Ah, my favorite little corner!

My Experience
           
               A beautiful home does not have to be big. All you have to do is make it your own by keeping it clean and fresh. Having my little  Renuzit scented pearls around while redecorating my bathroom was quite an experience. The atmosphere was different. It really put me in the mood to do more. I scrubbed corners that I never thought of scrubbing because the vision in my head was to have my bathroom look as clean as the way it smelled.  It's amazing how such a small container can hold so much goodness. The fragrance invaded the bathroom within hours. The next day it was the master bedroom. The day after that I could smell it when I was going up the stairs.  I even thought about saving it for when we have visitors. Lol! With both the ceiling fans and the air conditioners on, the inside of my home was the only place where I wanted to be.

** The products and a monetary compensation were sent to me to facilitate my review and complete the challenge, but all opinions expressed here are my own **

Jumbo French Braids With A Twist | Wash Day


              Hello beautiful people! Are you looking forward to mother's day? Speaking of mommy, I was very depressed on Monday. And for the first time in my life, shopping did not solve the problem. It's times like this one that makes you grab your blankie and makes you say, "I want my mommy!"  This week, my daughter asked my husband if there was a father's day. He told her to ask me in his sarcastic voice. She is only five. well, going on six in August. She probably forgot, but I have been celebrating father's day with them! I make them write cards for daddy and I take him out to eat or buy him something special. It's not my fault if the companies make more noise about mother's day than they do about father's day! Be careful about what your children watch on TV. They pay attention.
Anywho, I ripped a page from one of my favorite hair bloggers' book this week and added some apple cider vinegar to my clay mask. I usually do the apple cider vinegar rinse after the clay because it makes my hair look very shiny, but it saves me time when I do it here way, and I did get the same result too. I reviewed my Pantene truly natural hair deep conditioner here in case you missed that post. It is the reason why I used shampoo this week.

#WashDayExperience


{1} Shampooed with TREsemme moisture rich shampoo diluted with warm water ( my scalp only)

{2} Conditioned with Alberto v05 blackberry sage tea therapy

{3} Clay mask mixed with extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar

{4} Rinsed very well with cool water

{5} Sealed with my Shea butter mix ( extra virgin and Jamaican black castor oils)


Hair Of The Week




             I only use shampoo when my hair feels coated or my scalp is really dirty.  I am trying to stay away from heavy products, as they sit on my hair and makes it feel sticky. The bentonite clay has the ability to strip the hair if not used properly. So, I only leave it on for about 15 minutes, and I only used 1/2 cup mixed with water first, then I add olive oil ( 1 tbsp) and apple cider vinegar (2 tbsps). I did not use a leave-in conditioner this wash day because I am trying something new. I will tell you if it is working. How was your wash day?
