Hair Skin and Nail Formula – BariLife Product Review

It’s time for a product review. This month we’re going to be talking about the Hair, Skin and Nail Formula from BariLife. Because, I am an honest WLS Blogger; I’ll admit that I am remiss in getting this review published. As usual, you have great intentions, then life happens and other things sort of take priority.

This product review was slated for October. But, I was suddenly dealing with the passing of my late ex-husband. However, that has given me the opportunity to spend more time with the product itself. Which makes for an even better review. Always find the silver-lining right? Right.

Hair, skin and nails. Let’s be honest, these are pretty important things. Each one of them contributes to our self-image. If you’re anything like me, self-image after weight loss surgery is a topic of paramount importance. Personally, I spend a lot of time on my appearance.

The Hair, Skin and Nail formula from BariLife has my hair growing like weeds!

BariLife Hair, Skin and Nail Formula

Product Review: BariLife Hair Skin and Nail Formula 90 Capsules $37.99

When it comes to appearance, hair is a big deal to me. A really big deal. I’m a do-it-myself sort of gal when it comes to color. Currently, because I am attempting to grow my hair out, I not getting hair cuts very often. First, let’s talk about how the Hair, Skin and Nail formula from BariLife affected my hair. Holly freaking grow out batman! While taking this supplement my hair has grown like weeds.

This has some pros and cons in the world of Pandora. The great part, is that my hair is growing faster, so I’m reaching my goal of growing my hair out more quickly. I’m going to give this product a lot of credit for that. The other big pro I will mention is that hair growth isn’t limited to your head. While taking this product I noticed that my lashes were looking longer and healthier and my eyebrows were getting thicker. I don’t know if you know this ladies, but longer fuller lashes and brows are one of the secret ingredients to looking younger!

The con, is that because my hair is growing faster, I have to dye it much more frequently. That’s not really a negative thing. It just means I have to find time to do those root touch ups more often. If you know me, you know that finding time for extra little things can be a bit of a struggle for me.

I’m time challenged. That’s a Pandora issue not a product issue. So in the realm of how this product effects your hair. I’d definitely give it 5 stars.

It was hard to tell if the Hair, Skin and Nail formula and positive effects.

No fault of the product itself mind you. I just have pretty amazing skin. Skin care is something I take pretty seriously. My esthetician friends would be so proud! Additionally, because I have Discoid lupus, (Lupus of the skin NOT the internal organs) I wear a lot of sunscreen. Because of the sun screen, I wash my face religiously to make sure it doesn’t get too oily. As a result of all that washing, I also spend a lot of time on moisturizing, to insure that I don’t end up with dry skin.

Good skin is one of the few things the good lord has just sort of naturally blessed me with. But, in this case, having good skin and good skin care routines made it hard to tell if the product was changing anything.

But, Let’s get to where the Hair, Skin and Nail formula made the most notable difference.

Hair, Skin and Nail Formula - BariLifeMy nails. First, let me be really clear here. My nails are one of my highest priorities. My nails are one of the few things I really splurge on. I have one nail technician that I use and nobody, and I mean nobody, touches my nails but Cami. If my nails are not on point, either she is out-of-town or I am broke. That’s a true story. If you spot me with a bad manicure, something is wrong in my world.

Since I pay a lot of attention to my nails. It was very easy for me to tell how much faster they were growing while using the Hair, Skin and Nail supplement. Primarily because it had me in the nail salon much more often! I’m the type of gal that wears a french manicure a lot so that you can’t see the grow of my nails unless you’re looking at them really closely. That typically means I am in the nail salon getting a fill-in every 3-4 weeks rather than the every 2 weeks that a fully painted nail requires.

Not while taking this product! There was no skimping or delaying my manicure day. Since taking this product, I’ve been religious about getting in to see the nail tech every 2-3 weeks. Because, by week 4 even though my french manicure still has the facade of a well polished manicure, the nail growth causes the length of my nails to be problematic. If my nails get too long I start hitting them on things and catching them on stuff. Additionally, my typing and texting gets slopping. None of those are good things.

The Hair, Skin and Nail formula by BariLife had very noticeable results!

If what you are looking for is a product that is going to help your hair and nails grown faster, stronger and healthier, I’d highly recommend this product. My only complaint, and it is really a half-hearted complaint, is that if you are trying to keep your beauty shop budget under control this product can be a little counterproductive to the goal.

In fact, if I ever get asked to do a product review on a Hair, Skin and Nail formula again, I’m going to ask for a beauty shop stipend to offset the cost of a good product.

If you want to give the BariLife – Hair, Skin and Nail formula a try, you can find it on their website. The product recommends taking 3 capsules a day and a 90 count bottle will run you $37.99.

Taking Your Protein on Tour

Protein.

It’s the first thing we learn about when it comes to nutrition in our post-operative bariatric surgery lifestyle.

I really wish that I was the sort of bariatric surgery patient that possess the kitchen savviness that has me creating protein shakes so yummy you’d think you had just hit the Tropical Smoothie Café or Smoothie King drive-through, but alas I am not. That sort of play with your food creativity is what lead me to follow blogs like Bariatric Foodie and The World According to Eggface.

Me, I am the exactly opposite. My protein shakes are a matter of fact, matter of convenience type thing. I typically put 1-2 scoops of protein powder in a blender bottle add 8-16 oz. of almond milk, and off I go. It’s not pretty, in truth it’s not even tasty, but it does the job and it gets me the 15-30 grams of protein that I need to add to my day.

The problem I run into is that I am always on the run. Literally. I’m either rushing to the studio for an appointment with a client, rushing out the door to walk the dog, or rushing out the door to squeeze that run in. Which presents an obvious problem for me, I don’t always have almond milk and a couple scoops of protein powder sitting around for me to mix up that shake when I need it.

BariLife Protein Supplements As a weight loss coach and personal trainer one of my jobs is to help my clients recognize their obstacles and find solutions to them that allow them to get past them so that obstacles do not become barriers. I try very hard to practice what I preach in this regard. Which is exactly where the Protein Drink Bottles from BariLife come into play for me.

With these handy-dandy protein bottles, I don’t have to worry about being creative with my protein shake. I don’t have to worry about having something on hand to mix my protein shake with. I just grab a bottle, add some water to the fill line, shake, and instantly I have a great tasting protein shake that offers me 15 grams of protein.

I keep bottles of the Bari Life Protein Bottle shakes in my gym bag, at the studio I work at, I even keep one in the glove compartment of my car. This is my way of making sure that no matter where I am I can mix up a great tasting protein drink any time I need to.

If you happen to be traveling, they are wonderful for throwing in the suitcase or carry-on and having on hand to mix up on the plane or first thing in the morning. Plus, since you can just throw the bottles away when you are done using them, there is extra room in your bags to bring back from your travel destination when you’re done. This is my game plan for getting my morning protein shake in during my upcoming Paris trip next month!

BariLife Cappuccino Protein DrinkThe BariLife Protein Bottle drinks come in several great flavors including chocolate, cappuccino, vanilla, strawberry, kiwi strawberry, pineapple orange. My absolute favorite is the cappuccino, because with this one I get all the taste of a sweet coffee treat without all the unneeded calories that those yummy coffee store drinks add to my day.

From a nutrition standpoint the BariLife Protein Drink Bottles offer up 15 grams of protein for 80 calories. That meets and exceeds the 10:1 calorie versus protein ratio that I look for when selecting protein-based products to help me meet my protein goals for the day.

BariLife Chocolate Protein DrinkBeing a bit of a caffeine junkie here’s a little Pandora Pro-tip for you. If you don’t have time to finish that pot of coffee you brewed this morning. Pour the last few cups in a to-go container, put it in your fridge and add that to the chocolate flavored BariLife Protein Bottle instead of water and you’ve got another sweet coffee treat that is reminiscent of a café mocha with half the calories and twice the protein!

Being a Nutrition Rock-star is an important element of being an Obesity Rebel. A Nutrition Rock-star is someone who knows that the key to making healthy food choices is to make sure that you always have healthy food on hand to choose from. Rock-stars are usually on the go, so it’s always important to make sure that you’ve got healthy nutrition choices that can be on the go with you. I call this “Taking your food on tour.”

I use the BariLife Protein bottles to help me insure that I am living the best version of #MyBariLife. If you want to use these delicious protein bottles to make sure that you are living the best version of #YourBariLife, then head on over to the BariLife website and place an order today.
