I have a dirty secret. You see, I have a cabinet full of vitamins just sitting there and wasting away. Why you ask? I think it’s the fact that there seems to be a two step process involved in taking them. I have to get them out (and remember to even do so, which never happens…), get a glass of water to swill them down with, and then see no benefits because I rarely remember to take them. I realize that the TWO WHOLE STEPS I went over with you don’t seem that rigorous, but they seem to be as I find them to be a chore on a daily basis. So I just don’t do it. Or I commit to a week or two and then give up. Total fail, right?
I was strolling through Target a month or so back and came across these delicious Olly gummy vitamins with all kinds of fun titles, like SLEEP, and BEAUTY. Those are two of my favorite things;) Also, I like when things taste good, and since I often forget to eat breakfast, I consider these vitamins a stand in. That sounds legit, right?
Here’s what else I loved about these Olly vitamins:
1) So my hair has been the boon of my existence for a long time now. I like to dye it a million colors, and bleach it into tomorrow, and only cut it once or twice a year, so it takes a beating. Yet I want it to be long and luxurious and grow like crazy! I think it’s fairly common knowledge that Biotin is a vitamin that helps with hair and nail growth, and I DO have a bottle of that in my cabinet (mostly full, because I’M LAZY.) Hint: you need to actually take the vitamins to make them work. Ha! Cue Olly and their Undeniable Beauty gummies. I’ve been taking two a day for a month or so and I feel like my hair has grown. I’m not making any crazy medical claims here, but when I dug through my photos for a picture from this Spring it looks like my hair IS longer. Am I crazy here? This may be wishful thinking (?), or just consistent vitamin use (?), or just normal hair growth (?), but I’ll take it!
2) I had been eyeing these Restful Sleep gummies when buying my original batch, so I went back and bought them a couple of days later. (I do that a lot!) I sometimes suffer from occasional sleeplessness,(or the inability to shut my brain off) and wanted to give these a try. I’m not a big fan of taking over the counter pain meds with a sleep aid in them if I’m not actually in pain, so this is where Olly’s Restful Sleep gummies come in. I take two about 30 minutes before I want to go to sleep and they knock me right out. But not in a zombie way, you know? I also don’t find myself waking up groggy either. This mama appreciates a good night sleep on those nights I find myself tossing and turning, and a jar of these in my nightstand really helps me.
3) Finally, these vitamins taste good. Really good! I find myself excited to take them, so I do. I also liked the specific types of vitamins they had available, anything from a standard women’s multi, to a probiotic (these were pretty effective, if you have any idea what a probiotic will do to you…;), to options for your children or husband. I’m looking forward to going back and trying out other ones, as well as repurchasing the ones I already have. And like I said, if all else fails these gummies can turn into something tasty to eat when time for breakfast falls short!
