I recently did something slightly outside of my comfort zone and I purchased a beauty nutritional supplement from Hum Nutrition.
So what made me decide to give these supplements a try? I know it's silly, but it's because Hum Nutrition is carried by Sephora. I feel like I can trust that the brands Sephora chooses to carry are well-known/well-loved and are brands that have a high rate of satisfaction and good customer service.
You can also purchase Hum Nutrition supplements directly from their website and get a good discount, but I chose to purchase from Sephora because I wanted the points, faster shipping, and, again, I just felt safer purchasing from them (it's a mental thing, I'm sure purchasing directly from Hum Nutrition is just as safe, probably even safer). I also wanted to get some free samples...
Hum Nutrition carries a wide variety of supplements, but I decided to try the Runway Ready daily packs, which is a combination of the Red Carpet and Killer Nails formulas. It's $35 for a 30 day supply of packs so you're not saving any money (Red Carpet is $25 for 30 days worth, Killer Nails is $10 for 30 days), but the packs are convenient, especially for travel. You take the contents of one pack, two Red Carpet gel capsules and one Killer Nails capsule, with food once a day.
Since this is a supplement, it's going to take a least a month before I see any results, good or bad. I've been taking these for a little over two weeks and I'm not quite sure if I'm noticing anything yet. There are some things that I think are different; my nails seem to have grown faster, my scalp feels itchy, and my skin seems a little oiler, but I don't know if it's because of the supplement, the changes in the weather, or if I'm just imaging things. Barring any serious negative reactions or side effects (none of which I've noticed yet), I'm going to take the whole 30 days for sure to see what happens. If I notice anything positive, I may even consider purchasing another 30 days worth.
I can't give a recommendation either for or against this product; since this is basically an over the counter drug, I urge you to discuss taking it with your doctor before doing so. There are many things that can go awry, especially if you're currently taking any medications, have a medical issue, or are pregnant, and it's always a good idea to talk to your doctor before making any changes to your health routine. This is an extremely personal beauty decision and one that you need to research first in order to make the most educated choice that you can for yourself.
Thanks for reading! <3
