Mini Review and Giveaway: Viviscal hair supplements – CLOSED

29 May

Hey guys

Yes, this is ANOTHER giveaway. This time, I was lucky enough to be sent a packet of the new craze in hair care: Viviscal hair repair supplements.

About Viviscal:

For those of you who are unfamiliar with these new hair chummys.. Viviscal is a natural supplement aimed to repair your hair. They are tablets used to “Nourish and restore natural health and beauty to damaged hair” (what it says on the box) The supplement contains Amino Mar C (which is apparently a patented marine complex) as well as Selenium, Biotin, Folic Acid, Zinc and Grape Seed extract…so loads of natural lovelies for your hair. Here’s for the exciting bit… REESE WITHERSPOON has admitted Viviscal as one of her “secret beauty secrets” and has been quoted saying ” Viviscal is a must have for keeping my hair healthy and shiney. When I’m working on a movie, they blow-dry and cut my hair quite a bit so I take these hair supplements to keep it healthy” …. Aaaaah nothing like a bit o’ celeb endorsement!  Still quite exciting though.. right?!…

Viviscal is priced at 24.95 yo yos for 30 tablets (month’s supply) and need to be taken daily for the full effect to take place. You can purchase Viviscal on 1890 60 18 01 ( for Irish ladies) or on their website http://www.viviscal.ie. You will also find them cropping up in most leading pharmacies and health stores nationwide. However, if you’d like to be in for a chance to win a month’s supply completely free keep on reading… (oooh the suspense! ;) )

Viviscal Hair repair supplements

My experiences:

If you have been reading my blog for awhile now, you’ll know that I actually started using these supplements myself waaaay back, however I never got around to reviewing them for you.

When I started using them, my hair was in pretty good condition with little or no damage, however I thought I’d give them a whirl and see what all the fuss was about. These supplements definitely made a difference to my hairs appearance making it extra shiny and glossy. I believe it also helped in my hairs growth rate too.

However, recently I have started dying my hair again… had a bit of bother with some bleach (eeeek) and now my hair is in need of these supplements more than ever. I’m gonna repurchase these babies again and fingers crossed they work their miracle on me!

Overall, I’d really recommend these supplements to somebody with damaged or dry hair or even for somebody who just wants to give their hair a good ol’ boost. No matter what the season… healthy hair is ALWAYS in fashion… so it’s nice to finally see a product in the market that actually works at restoring your hair :) This product gets a huge sleepingbootay thumbs up…and I can’t wait to try them out on my newly coloured hair. Watch this space for an updated review folks! :)

“Viviscal” Review; Hair repair supplement

1 Mar

Hey guys!

(sliiiiiiight diversion alert…) 

So before I get stuck into this post, I just want to say a few things! First up… Happy World Book Day! I’m a crazy big fan of books and I always have been…so have an awesome day to all my fellow book worms. Secondly, Electric Picnic (Irish music festival, for anybody who is unfamiliar) announced some of their main line-up this morning…aaaand… my all-time favourite band THE CURE have been confirmed… now I’m not going to go into it… because lets face it, it would need a post all of it’s own.. but AHHHHHHHHHH (yes I’m VERY excited! :) ) And lastly, I have been overwhelmed from the absolutely great response I’ve been getting for this blog… thank you so much to every single person who has read this blog, commented, liked a post etc… and if you are a first time reader then HI and thank you too! I never expected to get so much nice comments and followers so quickly and I’m very grateful! 

Now to mark World Book Day here’s a photo of me reading a book…. Lucky you! ;)

Reading yet ANOTHER Michael Jackson book.. I’m an MJ-crazed-fan by the way!..you will all learn this in time!

Ok rant over (heehee) 

Now onto the matter at hand…..

So this morning I was greeted with two packages that I was kindly sent by companys to review their products! I know a lot of “beauty bloggers” out there are very cool and accustomed to this but I’m not THAT cool and I was stupidly excited about it.  The product that I’m going to introduce first is from a company called Viviscal . What is this??! You may ask.. well… they are basically a batch of hair repair supplements similar to that of Perfectil, except they are specifically aimed towards your hair. They are tablets used to “Nourish and restore natural health and beauty to damaged hair” (what it says on the box) The supplement contains Amino Mar C (which is apparently a patented marine complex) as well as Selenium, Biotin, Folic Acid, Zinc and Grape Seed extract…so loads of natural lovelies for your hair :)

Here’s for the exciting bit… REESE WITHERSPOON has admitted Viviscal as one of her “secret beauty secrets” and has been quoted saying ” Viviscal is a must have for keeping my hair healthy and shiney. When I’m working on a movie, they blow-dry and cut my hair quite a bit so I take these hair supplements to keep it healthy” …. Aaaaah nothing like a bit o’ celeb endorsement! ;) Still quite exciting though.. right?!…

Now I have to admit, when I first saw this, I though… uh oh… I can’t really review this as I don’t exactly have very damaged hair. Don’t get me wrong, I get the odd split hair and sometimes my ends get dry and brittle, however it’s not on the level that might need a supplement! HOWEVER, I then thought… y’know what.. why don’t I give it a try anyway.. it can’t hurt and it might be interesting to see if they have any effect on already pretty healthy hair. I was kindly sent a pack containing 30 tablets and it requests that you take twice daily.. so if my calculations add up, I will be taking them for a course of 15days..just over 2weeks.. at the end of these 2weeks, I shall give my verdict and let you know if there was any change. Now I would like to remind you once again.. that this product does state that it is for damaged hair so there may not be any astonishing results…ALSO because I will only be taking them for a course of 15days.. this many not be a sufficient amount of time for full results. But I’m curious to try this anyway just as a little personal experiment. 

Viviscal retails at 24.95 euros for 30 tablets.

Where to buy?? You can purchase Viviscal by calling 1890 60 18 01 or by visiting http://www.viviscal.ie 

Viviscal is also available in selected pharmacies and health stores around Ireland so keep your eyes peeled! :)

I look forward to sharing my Viviscal experience with you!  Oh and stay tuned for a review of the second product I recieved in the post…ooooh mysterious and exciting! :) It’s a good’un.. ;)

Until next time, thaaaanks for reading guys. Byeeee! Kx :)
