i started taking biotin two years ago because the thick, curly hair i had had all my life was no longer quite as thick (and no longer grew as long) once i hit 30. also, i had read that biotin could help repair my nails from the havoc wrought by bimonthly gel manicures.

i started out using the 5000 mcg capsules, used the 10,000 mcg for a while, and have since reverted back to 5000. since …

I'm currently on oral chemotherapy and the side effects include my nails doing something that they've never done before: split right in the middle. So I started taking 500 mg of biotin and within a week my nails were strong and flexible. I honestly expected to start seeing some results in 6 to 8 weeks at the least. So yes, biotin works. However please heed the warnings from people …Read more

Used Biotin 5000 MCG for about 6 months and gave me CYSTIC ACNE I have never experienced before! Started taking this summer 2017 and I drink about 1.5 to 2 litres a day of water, sometimes more sometimes less and I eat relatively healthy.

After about three weeks I started experiencing horrible painful cystic/nodular acne on my cheeks. I do have oily skin so I am acne prone on my …

I've used various brands and formats over the years, and I really can't tell that biotin supplementation does anything for me, even after several months of sustained daily dosing. Since I eat red meat frequently, I'm probably getting plenty of biotin that way. It's definitely something to consider if you don't eat meat (although I don't know how or from what …Read more

So this definitely does make hair growth increase, and it did improve my overall skin quality, but my facial skin...oh dear.

I had some of the worst cystic acne ever from both biotin supplements and topical biotin in hair products. I also experienced closed comedones on my neck and shoulders, that took months and both exfoliation and extraction to clear up. Unfortunately for me, I used …

I take biotin every day. I've had hair loss but thanks to using the highest dose of biotin that is considered safe, my hair has grown longer, stronger and my hair is slowly starting to grow thicker. I love the results.

I regrew my hair and you can too. -I've been bleaching my hair on and off since forever. My hair wouldn't grow any longer it would just snap off. I've dreamed about having thick, long hair. And when I say dreamed, I mean it quite literally. So i decided to do something about it. My friend suggested Biotin when we were talking about my hair loss.
I’ve tried like 4 different …

This stuff gave me horrible deep cystic acne. I took it for about 4 months before I realized this was what was causing it. After I stopped taking the acne cleared up within a week. I may have never figured it out but I read a review for an acne face wash on amazon and the girl mentioned Biotin ended up being the cause of her acne. So glad I read that! My skin is acne prone to begin with, but not …Read more

I started using 5mg biotin, swanson brand, at full strength for 2 days then read reviews and became terrified of breaking out. So for the following 3 days i dumped out half the capsule contents, and taking roughly half a pill. So far ive noticed my skin is glowy and youthful looking, and i know its the increased sebum production biotin causes. I was curious to see what would wipe off with a …Read more

Biotin has definitely helped my hair to grow faster, and possibly thicker, though probably not softer or shinier. When I was getting my brown hair bleached regularly, the root regrowth was super crazy, way beyond any normal rate. I've been taking it for about a year now, and it definitely works, but you have to be careful and patient with it. It can cause breakouts and takes a while to work …Read more
