Getting My Glow On Thanks to Genuine Health!

You may have noticed in my recent FOTDs that I now have a glow to my skin.  While the makeup products I use on my face are very very good (otherwise why would I use them?), I also attribute the glow to my multivitamin: multi+ daily glow.  I have been taking the 2 tablets of the multivitamin daily for the past month, and now I feel comfortable talking about its effects on my skin.

Let’s talk about all the good stuff that’s in multi+ daily glow.  It has a wide range of vitamins and minerals… ready?

Hydrolized collagen, White tea leaf extract, Pomegranate extract, Full spectrum grape extract, Lycopene, Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic acid, Biotin, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Chromium, Selenium, Manganese, Iodine, Vanadium, Molybdenum, Copper

It also claims to provide anti-aging benefits, sun damage protection, and overall improved skin structure/texture. While I can’t vouch for its anti-aging claims (I don’t need it yet!), I can definitely say this: my skin looks great and sometimes go sans makeup.  I’m happy to report that my skin’s texture is more even and glowy!

I feel that I do have to mention that this changed the colour of my urine to yellow green since I’ve been taking it. I asked if this was a normal side effect of taking the formula. According to my contact from Genuine Health:

It’s normal to see a change in colour, particularly when taking a high potency formula like multi+ daily glow. Essentially, your body absorbs what it needs and flushes the rest out. This doesn’t mean you are not absorbing nutrients however! Just the opposite. Be sure to drink lots of water and take them with food for better digestion.

For someone who doesn’t always eat the healthiest diet (like me), I highly recommend this.  Remember that your skincare products can only do so much; you also have to think about what’s going inside your body!  Rating: A.

What’s This? Healthy Chocolate?!

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I’m a fiend for chocolate.  I also received healthy skin chocolate soft chews, which I have been snacking on when I have a craving for sweets.  It has the exact same texture of Tootsie Rolls; this is something I’m not a big fan of because I hate food sticking to my teeth.  And while this is no Ferrero Rocher, it tastes good enough considering that it’s good for you.  Made with 100% natural ingredients and contains multiple vitamins, healthy snacking is super easy with these chocolate soft chews.  3 chews a day = 90 calories.  Rating: B.

Disclosure: The products mentioned were sent to me by Genuine Health for consideration only.

    Oh how cool!! I need to find a good multivitamin too. The yellow color of your urine is due to the B complex. It happens whenever you take B vitamins. =)

    the mystery is solved! I remember you alluding to this in one of your replies hehe :) That’s pretty darn cool, although I have to say that chocolate stuff doesn’t seem like it would do it for me.

    I’m 18 years old. Am I too young to be taking this vitamin? They have it in stock at my local “Vitamin Shoppe” So I was wondering about it. I have some Light acne, mostly mild, nothing severe. I have some dry skin, and sometimes I wish for glowy skin and an even skin tone. Will this also help my hair? My nails?

    Thanks!

      Hi Shiann, I think it should work for you. You can always ask the people who work at your local store; they should be able to help you. :) I’m not a doctor so I don’t want to make such claims.
