Over the last 10 days I’ve been trying out LQ Health supplements, specifically their skin, hair and nails liquid vitamin pills which are aimed at supporting healthy hair and nail growth.
I have dabbled with supplements before but I’m always a tad sceptical because often you can’t 100% tell if they’re having a direct effect. Or as mum would say, you’re just paying for an expensive wee. I say this but I still religiously take wheatgrass and spirulina with my brekkie each morning. Because, you never know.
LQ Health – what are they?
The reason I wanted to try LQ is because the main ingredients are Biotin and Collagen, which are scientifically proven to help with skin elasticity as well as the growth of hair and nails. And who doesn’t want elastic skin and long hair and nails! As much as I cringe seeing memories pop up on Facebook from 10 years ago, 20 year old me can keep the pout, the pints of snakebite and the bleach, but I’d have the line-less skin back I tell ya!
How to take them?
LQ Health comes in handy little bottles so you can pop them in your handbag and take them on the go. Or you can take them whilst your sat at your desk at work and make your co-workers think you’re downing shots on a Monday morning, the choice is very much yours.
They are highly concentrated – one bottle is the same as taking 10 tablets and they taste ok too. They take their flavour from Resveratrol which comes from grapes. Who knew grapes could be such a handy little berry?
LQ Health – pricing
Supplements aren’t cheap – just look at Holland & Barrett, just breathing in there costs £20. But LQ offer three different packages which seem quite steep on first reflection but when you break it down they are actually quite reasonable in comparison to other brands.
- They offer a 10 day supply (which is what I sampled) which comes in at £29.99 – for that you get ten 50 ml bottles which you are encouraged to take each day. Sounds a bit pricey but this works out at £2.99 a day, about the same as your morning cup of coffee. And what would you rather, clear skin or coffee breath??
- They also offer a subscription for £53.99 a month which works out at £1.79 per day
- Or you can try the supplements for 30 days for £59.98 – this I think would be the best option as it gives you more time to see results
So did it work?
It’s hard to tell whether they’ve made a significant change to my hair because most of it isn’t mine. Lol. But I have noticed that my skin is clearer, despite my time of the month landing half way through, which normally comes with breakouts galore.
My nails appear stronger too. I can’t 100% say that this is due to LQ but I’d picked off my gel nails (which they tell you never to do) and my nails were looking a big old mess and kept snapping off. Which is probably why they advise you not to pick the damn things off. But in the last few weeks I’ve noticed they are stronger and are snapping less.
I think if you’re going to give LQ Health a go, opt for the 30 day option, as this gives the supplement more of a chance to get into your system and get to work. Have you tried LQ Health before?
