Hello and happy Wednesday. I’m here with my May round-up and my review of Ritual Multi-Vitamins.
// May Favorites //
 Aloe Vera Soothing Gel // Aloe vera gel is a multi-purpose item for me. Not only is it good for soothing the skin after being in the sun but it can also be used for sunburn. I use this in my Bentonite clay mask, for itchy skin, and my scalp since I’m wearing a braided style for the next few months.
 Turkish Cotton Towels // These towels have been my absolute favorite this month and I love the style. I use them as hand and kitchen towels. They are lightweight, come in several colors, and I love the rustic style and feel.
 First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream // My co-worker gifted me this cream and I love it, for any extra dry areas. It’s good for working hands and rough feet, and I’ve used this around my nose if I’m extra dry.
 Pacifica Crystal Dew Setting Spray // This is a cheaper alternative to your Urban Decay setting spray. I love this cruelty free product, and since my makeup is going to be really light summer, this get’s the job done.
 NYX California Beamin’ Bronzer // I was past due for a change-up with my bronzer/highlighter and this beautiful subtle shade is perfect. This shade works well with my skin tone. All I need is a little on my cheeks, eyelids, and the bridge of my nose for a cool natural look.
Ritual Multi-Vitamins for Women Review
I wanted to add an in-depth review for the Ritual Multi-Vitamin and not just lump it in my month favs. Vitamins are usually lost on me because I never take them long enough to see a difference. My challenge to take this vitamin every day for 30-days.
First I talked to my doctor to make sure this vitamin was ok for me to take. Women over 40 require a different type of supplement, for the ongoing changes that we experience.
Hair & Skin
After the 21 day mark, I did notice a change in my hair length (slightly). I’m a curly girl so we see hair growth differently. Since I never straighten my hair I can only go by a length check (I should have taken pictures), and the overall thickness of my hair.
An estimate would be at about a quarter of an inch (or so), my skin (on the other hand) was glowing by the 21-day mark. I would agree that part of that are products that I use. However the tone and texture I will attribute to Ritual. The vitamin does wonders for your skin.
My energy level has always faltered, and it’s due to more than my age. I not on a diet but I’m diabetic, so I monitor my meals very closely. I don’t get as much exercise as I would like but I do squeeze in yoga in the evenings.
At first, I noticed no change in my energy levels, because I felt tired all the time. However, when I was down to about 5 pills in the bottle, I did notice a difference. I was able to complete my daily tasks without feel as tired, and I had no problems waking up every day at 6:30 am.
Overview of Ritual
Just like the site advertises … the pills have a minty fresh smell. I think it’s always good practice to take any type of pill with plenty of water, but I no trouble swallowing these.
Due to the mint insert, as advertised, you can take the pills with or without food and it doesn’t upset your stomach. I had no nausea, stomach pain or any adverse systems.
If you’re looking for a multi-vitamin to improve your skin, give you more energy, with great ingredients … try Ritual. They also have prenatal vitamins, so there is no excuse to get your body healthy and keep all your resolutions this year.
