So I’ve been pretty candid about my ongoing issues with my talons – in a nutshell (if you don’t already know) they suck. They’re week and brittle and hardly ever seem to grow. On the odd occasion, when they do grow, they split or chip, one by one – kind of like a slow moving domino stack. I’ve tried so many different things over the years to try and strengthen them but nothing has made a difference (yet).
A product I haven’t tried (but which has been recommended to me) is Dr. LeWinn’s Renunail Nail Strengthener. There are countless positive online reviews regarding this product and I have to admit I’ve always been curious about it. The other month, an opportunity arose where I was able to pick up a bottle at a discounted price. I was in a rush at the time and without thinking about it too much ran to the till and impulsively purchased it (without reading the ingredients list). The unfortunate thing is this product contains Formaldehyde – an ingredient that scares the bejesus out of me, and which I’ve avoided using up until now. It’s the reason why I’ve avoided purchasing products like Seche Vite, OPI Nail Envy, etc, etc. The worst thing is I only just realised too, and I’m into my third week!
This got me thinking. Have you ever bought a product or had a treatment you feel has compromised your health? Let me know in the comments below.
Going back to my blunder, I’ve decided to continue the treatment for the recommended 4 week period. I am in week three now so don’t have all that long to go. After that I will cease using the product. Call it a mistake or an experiment… either way, I’m just trying to be transparent. I hate that I was negligent but I’m human after all.
So for those of you unfamiliar with this product Dr. LeWinn’s Renunail Nail Strengthener promises longer stronger nails in just 4 weeks. It’s supposedly the best treatment for weak, brittle nails. So far my nails do feel a lot stronger and they haven’t split. I’ll let you know how things go in a follow up post. As a side not, I’ve also tried to boost things on the vitamin front with the aid of Fusion Health Hair, Skin & Nails.
