Vitamin Lotion?





That's right!  You can actually get the vitamins you need through creams and lotions now instead of unpleasant supplements.  As someone who is required to take multiple supplements, I am super thankful for this!



I always do this thing where I get super excited about trying a product, but as soon as I get it, I get super nervous.  I was a little skeptical at first to use a cream to get my daily dose of B-12, but around the same time, I had the opportunity to hear a local compounding pharmacy speak on creating treatments that were more convenient (and pleasant) than taking a handful of pills.


Getting my Vitamin B-12 is simple - I use two pumps of the Maxasorb B12 cream daily.  You can apply it wherever you wish, but I typically just use mine as a hand lotion.  (My mom can't live without hand lotion, and she tried this and wants it simply because the cream is so good.)  It's unscented, so keep that in mind!  (I actually prefer unscented products because my skin is so sensitive, but they smell a little chemically when you first apply them.)  Vitamin B12 is so very important because it helps maintain overall energy levels.  We're all on the go, and we can't afford to have our energy levels drag!

So - what do you think?  Would you be open to trying a cream or lotion instead of a supplement?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!

If you have any questions about the product, feel free to shoot me an email or leave it in the comments!  Happy Tuesday!

XX,

SS

  4. I'm so glad you found something that you like! I too prefer unscented lotions- especially on my hands. Some of the scents out there can be overpowering during the work day. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you! And I agree. Not only do I try to be scent sensitive because of my skin, but I have multiple pregnant co-workers!

    1. I'll know for sure when I have my next set of labs taken, but I don't feel any different, so I'm thinking that's a good sign :)

  7. What an interesting concept! I would definitely give this a go. I'm always applying lotions and hand creams, there's something therapeutic about it, so if this has the added bonus of vitamins, then great!

    1. Girl, I am too! Dry skin stresses me out because it's just so painful. This lotion kills two birds with one stone!

  8. Lately my skin has been super dry and I've been using hand lotion every few hours to add some moisture to my skin, this sounds like it offers a little extra bonus!

    1. I've never met someone who uses lotion as much as my mom does, and she is obsessed with how great this is, so I say definitely try it even if you're only looking for moisture :)

    1. They offer D, as well! +Melatonin, which I think is fabulous because any time I take the pills, I go into a sleep coma. I wonder if the lotion is as potent?

  13. I would totally be open to trying something like this. I've been trying to take more vitamins, and I've been trying to stay moisturized. If I could take care of both at the same time, that would be amazing!

    1. I am right there with you! The thought of it alone makes me sick. I don't know if you have a compounding pharmacy in your area, but if so, I would look into seeing if they could help you reduce the number of pills you have to take!
