So the first week of my challenge is going well.
I thought it be best to first tell you how I think it is going and how I feel about he products that have been supplied from Dr.LeWinns for this challenge.
First of all I am over the moon we were sent one of their glass nail files it is perfect for me, not too rough and a perfectly adorable style which will last a long time . I find myself carrying this everywhere along with the hand cream which is soo nourishing and makes my hands feel the softest they have felt for a long time.
I am only using two of the three bottles in the set of three I was sent as instructed.
The nail strengthener is the one I use each day and its great. The bottle is a huge 30ml , double the size of the average nail polish or other strengtheners I have tried previously which is fabulous.
The brush is easy to hold and at is a nice soft brush that makes it easy to pick up the strengthener and apply no fuss.
Strengthener is perfect, it goes on well, dries very quickly and leaves a nice (not glossy) shine to your nails.
The only downfall I have to this is the very strong smell. It is soo strong that it was my husband who first said on my first day using it that he could not stand how strong it was , my brother in law said it was making his eyes water. So this is definately one for using out the way of anyone who may struggle with strong scents of polish.
I absolutley love the Nourishing oil . It is most definately doing its work and I feel this is becoming one of my all time favourites with cuticle care. I am massaging this into my cuticles and skin around the nail each night and love the smell .
Jojoba, Olive and Apricot Oils which soothes and nourishes cuticles.
Sweet Almond Oil which nourishes the cuticle and allows for rapid absorption.
UV Filters which protects the nail and the cuticle.
Vitamins A,C & E which hydrates and provides powerful anti-oxidant benefits.
The smell is so soothing , its the perfect relaxation scent before bed . I think this is the one that will help me get into a routine of massgaing it each day which in turn will stimulate growth with my nails.
My first set of questions for the 1st week of the challenge are:-
1. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the weakest) how strong are your nails this week?
My nails are supprisingly feeling stronger and I have not snapped one yet which is unusaul for me as I deal with them bending and snapping on a daily basis so I would give them a 8 because I am impressed.
2. Have you noticed any growth?
Most definately just slightly though and I think the massaging the oil into my cuticles each night is stimulating this .
3. Have you noticed any improvement with peeling?
I do not appear to have any peeling just a small amount on the edges , hopefully once my nails grow a little and I shape them more this will dissapear.
4. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the smoothest) how smooth do your nails feel this week?
My nails are smoothe, never have problems with ridges forming .
5. Has there been a reduction in ridges?
No I do not suffer from this so no sign.
6. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the healthiest) how healthy do your nails look?
Mmy nails are looking a lot healthier and I am not sure yet with it only been the first week if it is down to being more aware I am on a challenge or if it is the products itself.
Have you tried this or currently doing this challenge also?
