Rehab for nails in need with Probelle

probelle nail hardener

After trying gel nails a few times my real nails were left in need of some TLC. They peel easily and don’t have the strength they used to. I was excited to give this a try.

I like how light the formula is and even after the first use my nails looked shiny and healthy. And with my daily application I noticed my nails are hardening and no peeling! I love the shine it gives them as they grow they look great even without colored polish.

Probelle Touch N’ Grow Nail Hardener .5 Fl Oz (Formula 1) $14
Touch N’ Grow is a unique formula designed to cure, repair, and restore damaged nails. The formula itself has proven to prevent and correct thin nails that are breaking and cracking by forming a protective barrier on the nail. Apply a thin coat daily for several days to stop peeling, cracked, and split nails. Once the nail becomes healthier and stronger use with regular manicure as a base coat. After 2-4 weeks we recommend treatment to be continued with Touch N’ Grow PLUS.

When I first heard it had lime & garlic I was a little worried the smell of my fingers would ward of vampires and humans. But luckily there is absolutely no strange scent to deal with. My nails used to grow long without issue and now I seem to constantly have issues with peeling.

After just a week’s use my nails look so much better. Gone is the peeling and my nails are strong and growing without issue. The formula is really light so my daily coat dries quickly and doesn’t build up a huge layer on my nails.

Probelle Touch N’ Grow Plus Nail Hardener with Lime & Garlic .5 Fl Oz (Formula 2) $14
Formulated with Garlic and Lime, Touch N’ Grow PLUS is the perfect formula to maintain healthy nails. With special elements extracted from garlic, not only does this amazing formula harden and grows the nail, it also protects against fungus. Along with Garlic, Lime is a key additive to maintain hardness and growth while restoring the whiteness of the nail. Apply a thin coat daily for several days to stop peeling, cracked, and split nails. Once the nail becomes healthier and stronger use with regular manicure as a base coat. We recommend using Touch N’ Grow (Formula 1) for 2-4 weeks prior to Touch N’ Grow PLUS.

WARNING FOR PARENTS! Consumer Reports telling parents to NOT USE spray-on sunscreen!

0007965603058_500X500

An important alert this afternoon for parents!

According to a new report, spray-on sunscreens can put your child at risk for asthma or allergy attacks! Consumer Reports released the news after the Food and Drug Administration announced in 2011 that they are studying the product as to whether or not it can be harmful when inhaled by children. The FDA is still undecided.

“We now say that until the FDA completes its analysis, the products should generally not be used by or on children,” Consumer Reports says. “We have also removed one sunscreen spray — Ocean Potion Kids Instant Dry Mist SPF 50 — from the group of recommended sunscreens in our sunscreen ratings, because it is marketed especially for children.”

CR cautions only to use sprays on children if no other product is available at the time. If that is the case, CR recommends adults spray the sunscreen onto their hands and then rub it on their kids, avoiding the eyes and mouth.

However, some folks think the spray-on sunscreens have benefits. Spence Crimmins of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., protects his 8-year-old with spray-on sunscreen because it “goes on smooth and doesn’t leave a thick residue.” His son, Ryan Crimmins, likes the spray because it doesn’t take long to apply, leaving more time for water activities.

“It’s just quick and easy and it’s really smooth and it doesn’t hurt my skin,” Crimmins said.

Dr. Sunil Joshi, a family asthma and allergy specialist, says spray-on sunscreens and all aerosol products should never be used on kids with respiratory symptoms. Joshi says the sprays can trigger allergy or asthma attacks.

“If there is a child who tends to cough or wheeze or gets head colds and now you are spraying in their face, they are very likely to have those same symptoms and that can persist for hours at a time,” Joshi said. He recommends sunscreens without scents and hypo-allergenic lotions.

Crimmins says despite the warning from Consumer Reports, he will continue using sprays on his children.

“It doesn’t persuade me because this is my youngest and we’ve used it since he was little and we have a 21-year-old and they are both doing just fine,” Crimmins said. When WTLV-TV polled 10 families in Jacksonville Beach, the station found 7 out of 10 parents use spray-on sunscreens for their youngsters.

Good to know! I will use lotions from now on!
