We are proud to present the third BeautyMNL Awards: a twelve-part event that celebrates this fabulous year in beauty and wellness. After comprehensive discussion—and a whole lot of road-testing—the girls at the BeautyMNL office have listed the Best Products of 2018.
In the sixth installment of our 2018 BeautyMNL Awards, we’re taking stock of the vitamins and supplements that improved our well-being from the inside out. Some were classics, others came with aesthetic benefits, few were a surprise—but all packed a punch.

So, if you’re looking for an added boost, look through our list of Best Vitamins and Supplements. From pills to powders and candy-flavored gummies, here are the healthy ingestibles that made the cut this year. All tried and tested by the BeautyMNL team!

American Health Ester-C (500mg, 120 Capsules), P850
“I’m acidic, and so far Ester-C is the only vitamin C I can take without a reaction. As an added bonus: I noticed that it brightened my skin.” – Charmaine L.

The American Health Ester-C is available in a 1000mg variant, too.

Herbs of the Earth TruHairCare Hair Growth and Thickness Maximizer: Vegan Natural Hair Growth Vitamins (60 Cherry Flavored Gummies), P1,490
“This really help lessen my falling hair. I have super-thin and brittle hair, so I’m glad I was able to discover this product! What’s even greater is that it’s a better dupe than the more popular SugarBearHair brand from the USA. In fact, it actually contains more biotin than SBH!” – Bea C.

Moon Juice Spirit Dust Bottle (42.5g), P2,499
“I’m nervous by nature, and often times, let it get the best of me. But this really helped me manage my mental chatter! Every time I drink it, I instantly feel it work its magic on me: it helps keep my anxiety at bay and puts me in a state zen. Plus, it has a subtle, earthy taste that you can combine with anything from coffee to your tea. Highly recommend!” – Dani C.

The Moon Juice Spirit Dust is available in a 3g variant, too.

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails (80 Pieces), P990
“These taste so much like gummy bears, you wouldn’t think it was good for you! It took a while for me to notice the results, but it was worth the wait. After the first 2 months of taking this, I noticed that my hair feels way smoother than before and both my hair and nails grew faster than usual. I noticed I experienced less hair loss so it probably made my hair stronger, too. Not sure if it was directly caused by it, but even my skin rarely broke out since I started taking this as well. I’m definitely going to repurchase once I run out of this.” – Rimina P.

The Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails is available in 220 Pieces, variant, too.

Neocell Super Collagen+C (250 Tablets), P2,499
“Probably the most sulit supplement—it has 120 tablets in one bottle! After taking this for just 3 days, my wrists stopped aching, after hurting for maybe 2 weeks.” – Frankie C.

Philippine Pure Activated Charcoal (150 Capsules), P595
“Super handy for days of bloat, when I feel like I’ve eaten something that my body cannot process, or even when I drink alcohol! It binds to all the toxins in my body, and the effects are most apparent after a night of drinking because there’s absolutely no hangover the day after.” – Joanna T.

“I recommend this to all my friends who like drinking. Take this when you go drinking and you’re almost guaranteed NOT to have a hangover the next day!” – Patty G.

Piping Rock Melatonin (250 Tablets), P590
“On those stubborn, toss-and-turn nights, I take a tablet to get some shut-eye quick. This one’s my favorite because it’s all-natural, and it’s never given me morning-after trouble.” – Ayana T.

Roarganics BGC Weight Loss Package, P3,000
“Tried this out of curiosity and now I understand the hype around this product! It’s not too restricting, the drink is tasty, and the diet really works!” – Patty G.

Roarganics Maca Root Powder (250g), P1,000
“Makes my coffee twice as hardworking! I feel so sleepy around noon when I drink coffee without maca, but when I mix this in, I’m awake the whole day! Well, until like 6PM in the evening.” – Bea M.

SOZO Natural 5-HTP Complex (60 Tablets), P2,150
“On nights when I can’t sleep, I pop one of these alongside a melatonin. The combo knocks me right out and I feel super refreshed the next morning.” – Dani C.

SugarBearHair Hair Vitamins (60 Gummies), P2,100
“I thought this was just over-hyped, but I decided to try it since I do experience intense hair fall. But I was wrong: I did feel my hair get stronger, shinier, and, healthier in just a few weeks.” – Celine A.

“It doesn’t taste like medicine/vitamins! It’s so delicious that you’d want to eat more than 2 a day. Bonus points that it helps with hair strength and growth!” – Lianne S.

The Superfood Grocer Organic Maca Powder (100g), P375
“Ever since I found out that maca powder is an adaptogen that helps with balancing hormones and stress, I’ve been sneaking these into my smoothies and oatmeal whenever I get the chance! Plus, the taste is more on the nutty side so it doesn’t taste weird when mixed.” – Claire C.

Wheyl Nutrition Co. Just Naked White Whey Protein, P550
“Super love its taste: it’s not so sweet and just the right thickness. Super cheap also compared to other alternatives, so that’s a plus!” – Nyra S.
