Reviews for Nature's Bounty Hair Skin & Nails

Verified purchase · Taken for less than 1 month · December 20, 2020

For Dietary Supplementation "I bought this to help with exactly what it says...hair, skin & nails. I had no issues the first few days but a rash slowly came on the sides of my neck, then chin, eyes next and now all over neck, face and both arms. I’ve taken Benadryl for three days, completely stopped the vitamins & applied hydrocortisone to no avail. The rash isn’t budging, it just keeps spreading and itching. Please DO NOT take this. It’s not worth the risk!! I wish I could see follow ups from other users so that I can at least have an idea of how long this is going to last??!!!"

For Dietary Supplementation "I am reading all these comments and I am only on the first page online. I had to stop reading. I have been taking these Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails with Biotin. I have been taking 3 gummy's a day for 2 years and I am great. I am 55 yrs of age, have cancer and my hair is shiny, my nails are stronger & my skin just fine. I have no rash nor any of the other things people have mentioned. The construction work even said he is doing fine on them. Some people can't take certain meds, people can't take things that other people can take. All our bodies are different, don't blame on a supplement. Please don't blame it on that."

For Dietary Supplementation "I began taking this product on 4/17/20 (2 gummies a day). I was in the ER by the 19th. I resumed taking the gummies on the 22nd and after yet another episode I sent an email to consumer affairs about this poison. If you look on sites like Amazon or Walmart the reviews are terrific. Drugs.com was the only reliable review source and I wish I would’ve found this site prior to my purchase. Symptoms started with skin irritation, insomnia, bloating, diarrhea, and a metallic taste in my mouth. Symptoms graduated to my entire face inflamed with hives, severe facial and neck swelling, dizziness, sudden drop in blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, and frozen fingertips that graduated to my entire body trembling and headaches. I felt like I was on the verge of a heart attack. I’m healing now from the episode I had yesterday. I’m still not feeling too well and I just pray that I can flush my system of this rubbish soon. I want NB held accountable for this toxin they’re selling!"

Stefany82 · Taken for 1 to 6 months · January 29, 2020

For Dietary Supplementation "Let me start off by saying that reading these comments has been a revelation of sorts. I, like many, suffered from severe rashes when taking these vitamins. However, because I was on other medications it was difficult to figure out what the cause of the rashes was. After taking 2 vitamins nightly for roughly one month the rashes became unbearable and I visited a dermatologist. Long story short, I was on a regimen of antihistamines but the rash persisted. Following 2 skin biopsies and hundreds of dollars in copays, the dermatologist found that the rash was hives from something I was ingesting. I literally had to stop everything and go through exclusion of vitamins, medications, foods, etc. Nearly a year later I attempted to reintroduce these vitamins and lo and behold I am covered in a rash. Nature’s Bounty should pull these vitamins and hope they don’t get hit with a lawsuit."

For Dietary Supplementation "Do not take Nature's Bounty Hair Skin and Nails!! I developed a bad rash and I believe an enlarged lymph node after starting this supplement about a month ago. I feel itchy all of the time all over my body. Just came to the realization tonight that the supplement is the cause for my condition. Definitely not taking any more of this supplement!!!"

For Dietary Supplementation "Good thing I've read comments from this site, now I'm relieved. I started using Bounty for hair, skin and nails a week ago. My skin was fine before taking it but some rash and itchiness developed since day two of taking the pills. I think I have to stop it now since I'm scared of the possible things that may happen to me. Being cautious on the drugs or pills to be ingested should be considered in buying this kind of product. Most people commented a serious problem on their end while taking this drug so I guess Bounty should make a recall on their products. I am not buying any Bounty products anymore. It's traumatizing since I can recall that this is the cause of my allergies as well back in February. I've learned my lesson."

For Dietary Supplementation "I had been taking generic gummy supplements for hair, skin, and nails for 5 months and did notice a difference in my hair and nails. When I ran out of gummies I decided to try Nature's Bounty extra strength hair, skin, and nails pills. After taking one pill a day for 3 days I began breaking out in hives on my arms and behind my ears. I continued taking the pills for 3 more days thinking they weren't the cause. Once I stopped taking them I still had hives and severe itching. Neither over-the-counter antihistamines or hydrocortisone helped alleviate the symptoms. Since the rash continued for days after I stopped taking the supplement I tried it again thinking it couldn't have been it. Sure enough, that night I was waking up just to itch my arms. I never took these supplements again, but it is day 3 after the last pill I took and the hives and itching continue."

For Dietary Supplementation "After about 4 days I developed an itchy rash around my mouth and on my eyelids. I never thought a hair,skin and nails vitamin would do something like this so I unfortunately continued to take it. Fast forward another 3 days and I felt like I could claw my eyelids and mouth area. These areas are now also slightly inflamed. I decided to google reviews and what do you know? Seems like this is a common reaction I personally believe these should be pulled from the market. I’m just hoping after a good detox my skin goes back to normal. I’m documenting with pictures just in case I need to pursue this further and I’d suggest others do the same. I’d really like to hear from others who’ve had a similar experience if when you stopped taking this your healthy skin returned. I’m very worried I’ve permanently done damage."

For Dietary Supplementation "I saw that this product was on sale at my local grocery store and I bought it because I wanted my hair and skin get healthy. The bottle said to take 3 pills a day for adults. I chose to take only 2 as I thought that 3 pills were excessive. After the first day, I noticed small bumps on my arms, very itchy bumps. For 4 days, I've been taking this supplement, and the itchy bumps kept increasing all over my arms. I stopped taking it after the 5th day. I'm going to let my body detox this product out of my system because I never break out in any form of hives and such. Worst supplement ever. Should be removed out of the shelves if so many people are experiencing the same symptoms."

JayBird · Taken for 2 to 5 years · January 8, 2021

For Dietary Supplementation "I am a 37 year old male construction worker and I have been using Nature's Bounty gummies for my hair, skin and nails for over two years now. About three weeks after my first dose, I noticed my thumb nails were like freaking daggers... I was accidentally cutting my thighs and forehead just getting dressed! My hair is also about 26 inches long, strong and shiny blonde. In construction, I use my hands all day. I use my nails to pry and scrape and even my thumb nail as a screwdriver. I love these gummies, I really believe they work great for me. I have never experienced any itching or rashes. I get headaches, but I've also got a slew of medical issues and I am on pain meds from pain management. I may get the occasional constipation, but I get that from my meds too. In closing, I stand by Nature's Bounty Hair, skin and nails as a great product that works very well for me."

For Dietary Supplementation "I used this product for roughly 3 weeks. Within the first few days of taking the gummies, I noticed my earring holes in my ears filled up with pus to the point I could push on it and it would ooze. Also was feeling nauseated daily. I stupidly didn't connect these incidents with the gummies so continued for a couple more weeks. Began getting cystic pimples along my jawline, nose bridge, zits and bumps on my scalp, my gas and feces smelled horrendous "

For Dietary Supplementation "I took gummies for a few months. Wrote review on 4/7/21. Have had terrible rash since taking. When I take hot shower, rash comes out...when in the sun, rash comes out! ALL OVER BODY RASH! Went to doctor. He researched vitamin. He explained that biotin is water soluble so what your body doesn't need you will pee out, other ingredients are fat soluble which means that it sticks to your cells. He put me on daily zyrtec which helps with itching, however a month later still the same. How long does it take for this stuff to get out of your system. Guess I will be making another appointment. Ruining my whole summer!"

For Dietary Supplementation "My daughter first bought this product and it worked fine for her so I decided to try it too. I too took 2 gummy pills and 10 minutes later I felt like I had no energy at all. I thought my heart beat was slowing down and it really scared me. So my daughter said "no mom it can't be the gummies", so the next day I tried it again and the same thing happened again. It was like my body didn't have any energy at all, I started to call the ambulance but then it went away after 6 minutes. Never use this product again!!!"

For Dietary Supplementation "Head started itching like crazy after 3 1/2 weeks of using product as directed. Had my family check my head for vermin, and any other scalp conditions and they saw nothing. I was absolutely going insane. Kept trying to figure out what if anything had changed in my normal routine: medication’s, hair products etc. etc. and nothing had until I remembered I had started this supplement 3 1/2 weeks prior and did a search on side effects. I’ve discontinued product"

For Dietary Supplementation "This gave me horrible vertigo, to the point of nearly missing the couch when I went to sit down, I couldn't walk or even look at anything, and then I started to throw up really bad. I also started to have chest tightness which I did not have prior to taking this. I never had this happen before so it had to be from this because it happened on day 2 of taking it."

For Dietary Supplementation "This is effective, but be VERY WARY of side effects. I had an incredibly severe reaction. I was born with asthma but it became very mild after age 8. For over a year I was on a similar vitamin before switching over to this one. After the first day, I noticed my nails were growing whiter and stronger. However I looked like I had a sudden break out. They were hives. 2-3 days, I was bedridden with asthma, flu-like symptoms, severe rash, vomiting. At 5-7 days, my throat swelled shut and I was in the E.R. 7 days ago, I was put on prednisone and stopped taking this vitamin. I know it was a reaction because I took the vitamin today and ended up in anaphylactic shock, back in the E.R. I have never been so incapacitated and ill. Be careful."

For Dietary Supplementation "After about a week of taking this product my scalp got really itchy it feels like it's on fire and I have a rash on my face and arms. I'm itchy all over I hope this goes away soon. I took the pill form of these before and was fine so it must be something in the gummies."

For Dietary Supplementation "I used this product for a week. Didn't take the 3 pills recommended because it seemed like a lot. Took one a day. I started to itch everywhere and have a rash. It has caused me to have dermagraphism. I have to take Zyrtec everyday now because if I don't I will be itching from head to toe have a rash and when I scratch I will welt up. Zyrtec keeps me from itching and the rash happening. It also keeps me from welting up bad when I scratch. When something touches my skin it still leave a red mark but at least I don't itch, have the rash, and welt up. If I could rewind time I would and never have taken this product. I wish they would take it off the market."

For Dietary Supplementation "Arms are broken out in a rash…itchy skin all over, diarrhea and headaches. I didn’t realize my insomnia may also be caused by these vitamins. I have been taking them for 3 weeks. It’s the only thing I take-no other medications. Side affects started immediately. I went to my doctor thinking I had some autoimmune issue-stopped the vitamin and my rash got better, stomach is better and sleeping again. I WISH I had read reviews before taking this nightmare of a supplement! It definitely needs to be discontinued based on what I am reading on here."
