Review: ItWorks Hair, Skin and Nail Pills

According to the September Blog Calendar, September 2nd is a day for a review. The prompt was something about a book you read this summer, but I didn’t read any, so I am going to give a review on the ItWorks! Hair, Skin and Nail pills.

My review on ItWorks! Hair, Skin and Nail pills and why I call it a rip off! | Two Million MilesDid I just ruin the ending for you? Oops. Keep reading to find out why I call it a rip off..

So, I’m sure you’ve all heard about these awesome, miracle pills! It seems like everyone is taking them. My Facebook and Insta feeds are full of the back of people’s heads showing how much their hair grew in just a month.

Yes, my hair did grow. I did notice a difference in that, but let me tell you something. I bought these because I am SIIIIIIICK of having this stupid teenage acne. I don’t have a million zits all over my face, but I have blackheads galore. I want them gone. It seems like I have tried every face wash known to man and nothing really helps. So, I thought I’d spend $38 a month on these pills. {Yes, they say $99 for three months, but after shipping and tax, it ends up being about $38.} That was the main reason for getting them. I wasn’t too worried about my hair. It’s already long and it grows pretty fast anyway, I just wanted to get rid of these damn blackheads.

I didn’t see even the SLIGHTEST difference in my skin. Not a one. I still have all these damn blackheads and I’m out all this money.

And can we talk about the ingredients?


HSN pill ingredient list. You're better off buying a bottle of Biotin for less than $10 at Walmart.


5000 mg of Biotin! Seriously? You’re better off just going to Walmart and buying a bottle of Biotin for less than $10. That’s what I am going to stick with from now on. Sure, it does have a little more vitamins and such, but you should be taking those every day anyway 😉

I know I mostly rambled, but do yourself and your “bill fold” a favor and save the money and just go to the good ole Wally World and get some Biotin and pop five of those babies a day.

Oh, and P.S. I didn’t see a difference in my nails either. Only my hurrrrr. And I saw that same difference when I was just taking regular Biotin.

Rant is over now. Promise. Nighty night!


How To… Pin Photos to Pinterest Quickly!

How To Pin Photos to Pinterest Quickly

In my 5 Blogging Tips {Part 1}, I said that it was very important to have a “Pin It” button on every post. That is still true, but sometimes there just isn’t one! And like I also said, the process is really annoying, if there isn’t one. So today, I am going to show you how to do it quickly – with or without a “Pin It” button.

This may come as old news to some of you, but I’m hoping to help others out!

Log in to your Pinterest account.

Hover over the “About” drop down menu.


Click “Pin It Button”.

Pin it

Scroll down, then click “Install Now”. And it will lead you through the steps and it should now appear on your bookmark bar. Now, when you go to a site and there isn’t a “Pin It” button by the picture, all you have to do is click the “Pin It” button on your bookmark bar and the pictures that are on that page will come up and you can choose which one you want to pin!


Was that old news or did I help you?



Beauty FAIL!

You may have seen this picture floating around on Pinterest with this description, “To straighten hair without heat, just mix a cup of water with 2 tablespoons of BROWN sugar, pour it into a spray bottle, then spray into damp hair and let air dry.”

Boy! Was that a mistake! I was so embarrassed. My hair was so gross and sticky! It began to flake and looked like I had super bad dandruff. Ew. And remember when I said I was in a hurry? Yeah, I didn’t even have time to jump back in the shower to rinse it out.

Moral of the story: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!
