Sephora Collection X OLLY

October 09, 2019

Sephora Collection X OLLY gummies are chewable supplements that contain all the right vitamins to promote healthy skin, lustrous hair and relaxation. The expert blend of antioxidants, minerals, superfoods and vitamins aid your body and contribute to your healthy lifestyle.  

Sounds positive, but the calorie intake?! If you take two of each - Lustrious Hair, Skin Detox, Glowing Skin and Radiant Sleep, you will consume 150 calories per day. As someone who's "currently" counting calories, sugar intake and carbs, these little gummies are packing too much weight for me.

Albeit, the Sephora Collection X OLLY gummies appear to have a good dose of the necessary supplements to aid in whatever you're trying to achieve - hair growth, radiant skin or to sleep better at night.

I should mention that I have a vexing case of insomnia and I score high on the stressed RTFO scale. SO, I have zero expectations for the Radiant Sleep gummies. It would take a mild sedative to calm me down and put me to sleep. I'm gonna give the Radiant Sleep gummies to someone with less issues!

I'm no expert, but after a few minutes researching online, I'm concluding that these gummies are comprised of the same antioxidants, minerals, superfoods and vitamins that you would find in similar supplements. The Lustrous Hair does however have 8333% of the suggested daily Biotin intake. Hmm.. I'm sure it's safe - It's Sephora.

The Lustrous Hair tastes like sweet grapefruit, the Radiant Sleep like blackberry and mint, the Skin Detox has a similar flavor of berries and mint and the Glowing Skin tastes like blueberry and pomegranate (essentially, it also tastes like berries). These gummies are TOO SWEET. I'm a salty kinda girl, so two of each supplement is asking a lot of me. 

I realize making tasty chewable gummies or candy supplements is a great way to get people to take vitamins, but does it have to be sweet? I vote for vitamin-enriched chips. Not dehydrated fruit and veggie chips - I want salty, ruffle chips.

I'll slowly get through these gummies and probably share, but the Sephora Collection X OLLY supplements are too sweet and the calorie intake is too high. I'd prefer to swallow a giant flavorless vitamin.

Cleanse & Rejuvenate

July 05, 2016

10 days left in Amsterdam and then I'm moving back to the U.S. - YAY! The house is packed, and 'I've' been packing my body with all the yummy (unhealthy) foods Amsterdam has to offer. After weeks of consuming anything and everything, I'm feelin' a little heavy (in every sense of the word). I need to kickstart a healthier lifestyle and rejuvenate my body. 

For the next 72 hours, I'm focused on my go-to juice cleanse by Juice Brothers and favorite teatox, SkinnyMint. No food, just liquids! It's not as hard as you think - you just gotta stay focused on the benefits. I've done many juice cleanses and favor the green juices over fruity blends. Too much sweet, makes me crave salt, but the bitter greens deter me from sneaking salty snacks. Master cleanse is my favorite; maple syrup, lemon and cayenne make the perfect morning drink. Oh, and the nut milks are a nice treat at the end of the day. I honestly don't struggle with juice cleansing; especially the hard cleanse by Juice Brothers. I think they key is to find juices that taste good. 

I'll also consume about 4 cups of green tea, SkinnyMint tea and 2 liters of water a day. Yeah, Imma be on the toilet all-day long! Green tea is a miracle beverage. I drink Sencha green tea everyday to keep the bloat to a minimum, and reap the health benefits the antioxidants and nutrients have on the body. After I finish the juice cleanse, it's salad, fruit, veggies and chicken for the next few weeks. Imma look fabulous, my skin will glow and I'll feel energetic again. Sometimes your body just a needs a restart and after 3 days of liquids, even green beans taste good! You will be inclined to eat healthier.

Juice/tea cleansing tips: 

Set reasonable goals (you can't go a week without food). 
The end of your cleanse should land on a weekend, so you can relax and avoid overexerting yourself.

If you absolutely have to eat something, opt for avocado with olive oil or lemon. Salt-free nuts will also curve your cravings.

Choose juice blends that you'll enjoy (well, mostly).

Do the cleanse with a partner, so you can support each other and smack the other if they're dreaming about french fries!
