Neocell Beauty Review

I received this product as compensation for this review. All opinions are my own. 

This is officially my first full-blown product review and I'm really excited. Not only because I have a giveaway at the end, but because I loved these products.

I normally dislike writing reviews - I blame my journalism days and internship. At one point I got all reviewed out, which is why you haven't seen any reviews on my blog. If I'm writing a review, you know it's for something good!




At the end of June, I received Neocell's Beauty Bursts and Keratin Hair Volumizer. I was so excited to start the beauty bursts because - well - I love candy and that is exactly what they taste like!! I got the berry burst, because I had read in another review they tasted like Starbursts. I'm all about the Starbursts. Plus, if I can chew my vitamins, I am a happy girl. (Aka, when I found out they have gummy prenatals I decided I could get pregnant.)

I was super excited to see these Beauty Bursts at Sprouts, so that I can replenish my stock. A recommended dosage is 2 per day, and I can honestly say I looked forward to chewing them.



Not only did they taste delicious, but they saved my skin! I probably didn't mention it on here because I don't usually talk about my appearance, but for the past 6 months or so, I had a weird dry spot on my left cheek. No matter what I did, it would always come back. I think it's from my contact solution. But I tried everything my friends and I could think of and it always came back.

Before, notice the discoloration and bumps on my left cheek


Well now it is gone! My skin is SO soft and definitely not dry. Also, I'm sure my skin would look worlds better if I washed my face on a daily basis, but I suck at creating habits...so there's that.

After! Even skin tone, no more dry patch



The Keratin Hair Volumizer is a pill, which is not usually my cup of tea. I really suck at remembering to swallow pills, so I didn't take these as religiously. My hair is quite voluminous on its own though, so I wasn't super concerned. I was lucky enough to receive two bottles, and I gave one to my mom because she has thin hair (aka opposite of me). She hasn't started taking them yet, but she is saving them for when she is growing her hair back after chemo.

The Beauty Bursts do not contain gluten, soy, palm oil, or artificial colors or flavors.  They contain Hydrolyzed Collagen 1 & 3, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, rice syrup, dried cane syrup, sunflower lecithin and oil, citrus bioflavinoids.  40 calories per serving of two. 

The Keratin Hair Volumizer containst Cynatine HNS Solubilized Kerating, Hydrolyzed Super Collagen, Amla Extract and Vitamin C.

Now for the giveaway!! One lucky winner will receive both the Beauty Bursts (in Berry or Chocolate Mint) and Keratin Hair Volumizer! The winner will be notified by email and must reply within 48 hours. The prize will come directly from Neocell.

  31. Beautiful skin! I'm so glad you had a good experience - I ended up breaking out because of one of these, so I quit them immediately! After 2 months, I'm still struggling to get my skin to being as clear as it was beforehand.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awesome that they helped you :) I've heard really mixed things about them so I'm scared to try - hormones are still too crazy post pregnancy!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm super intrigued by those! my hair has the hardest time growing....it's so so slow! i don't really have issues with volume, but i wonder if they help hair grow...

    ReplyDelete
  35. My hair grows so much!!! I take daily vitamins but I have a lot of thicky messy hair lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. They all look fantastic! I hate how slow my hair appears to grow because it's so curly. It's always great when you find fantastic products to help you feel beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh no!! That is horrible!! :( I guess it varies person to person

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ohh, yeah, luckily I am finally extra hormone free for once (no birth control and not currently pregnant) so I think I reacted well to it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thank you! I totally suck at it but this was like eating candy, so of course I never forgot (ok, I forgot like twice)

    ReplyDelete
  40. They do! The beauty bursts help your hair grow, too! My hair grows pretty fast, but everyone's been telling me I have mermaid hair since I started taking these

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yes, it is great!! Curly hair totally tricks you until you straighten it!

    ReplyDelete
