We are proud to present the fourth BeautyMNL Awards: an eleven-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 2019.
In the third installment of our 2019 BeautyMNL Awards, we’re sharing the best vitamins and supplements that boosted our health from the inside out. While some gave us the nourishment we need on a daily basis, others helped us look healthier.

From pills to powders and candy-flavored gummies, here are the ones that kept us in tip-top shape. All tried and tested by the BeautyMNL team!

Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink (14 Sachets), P1,593
“A morning staple that I mix in with my green tea. After using it for awhile, I’ve noticed that my skin is glowing more than ever!” – Julia D.

SugarBearHair Women’s Multi Vegan Multivitamins, P2,100
“I had a great experience with Sugarbearhair’s Hair Vitamins when I tried them for the first time last year (they work wonders, BTW!), so it felt like a natural next step to try their Multivitamins. I love these: they make the act of taking your vitamins feel more like a treat than a chore, and are so delicious so you look forward to your daily twice-a-day dose. The best thing about these multis for me (besides the really yummy strawberry/cherry flavor) is that there’s a good cocktail of B vitamins in their formula that really helps regulate my stress levels.” - Steph C.

Puritan’s Pride Calcium 600mg + Magnesium 300mg Vitamin D3 1000iu (60 Softgels), P539
“I purchased this on BeautyMNL this year after reading about the nutrients that most people are deficient in. I learned that Calcium and Vitamin D were among the top ones and so this product from Puritan’s Pride hit two birds at such an affordable price. I take this everyday now and though I don’t see any immediate or noticeable effects, I know that taking it as a daily habit is surely an investment for the future.”– Patty G.

Goli Apple Cider Vinegar (60 Gummies), P1,295
“This is a really exciting twist to your typical ACV products. Very delicious and I can definitely binge eat it!” – Mary R.

Herbs of the Earth TruHairCare Hair Growth and Thickness Maximizer: Vegan Natural Hair Growth Vitamins (60 Cherry Flavored Gummies), P1,490
“My holy grail! This really helped fix my bad hairfall problems! It’s so easy to consume, too. Just pop 2 gummies and you’re good to go!!” – Bea C.

Moon Juice Brain Dust Bottle (42.5g) , P2,499
“I’m surprised that after a hectic day of back-to-back meetings, my mind still had more to give. I noticed the difference on the hectic days that I don’t drink this, I get drained so easily.” – Joanna T.

Moon Juice SuperYou Capsules, P3,299
“Like the name implies, I feel like a better version of myself when I’m on this stuff. The pills are made with a blend of adaptogenics, each meant to help deal with stress. On the days I don’t forget to take this, I’m more equipped to swerve a funky mood and power through the longest of to-do lists. It’s not a magic pill, but it helps make jumping through the hoops of daily life that much easier.” – Dani C.

Emergen-C Super Orange Flavor Dietary Supplement Fizzy Drink Mix with 1000mg Vitamin C (1 Sachet), P28
“This is my holy grail go-to vitamin powder pack whenever I’m starting to feel sick. It definitely gives me a lot of energy, and helps me brave the rest of the day!” – Kim H.

DHC Vitamin C with 1,156mg (120 Caps), P550
“I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s super sickly and yet doesn’t regularly drink their vitamins. I’ve gotten sick so many times during the 1st half of this year so I decided to try out this popular Japanese brand’s Vitamin C out of curiosity. Since then, whenever there’s a bug going around the office (which is quite often), I take 2 of these Vitamin C capsules along with an Echinacea pill, and believe it or not, while every else has been super sick, my immune health’s never been better! Aside from its effectivity, I also like the product for its packaging. Since it’s in a small resealable bag, it’s light enough for me to just throw in my bag so that I can take them any time and anywhere.” - Patty G.

Neocell Super Collagen+C (250 Tablets), P3,500
“I started to use this because I wanted to try collagen, and I felt my nails and hair strands were getting weak. As in hair breakage and nail cracking! But after about a month of taking this every day, my nails looked less damaged and my hair has better texture!”– Renee C.

Neocell Super Collagen+C Powder: Type 1 & 3 (7oz), P1,599

“When I was taking this consistently, I could really tell that my skin was more “plump”. My hair was thicker and my nails were stronger! Plus, it had vitamin C to keep my immune system strong!”– Frankie C.

Huga Nutrition Biotin Hair Skin Nail Gummy Vitamins Grape Flavor (60 Gummies), P499
“My holy grail! This really helped fix my bad hair fall problems! It’s so easy to consume, too. Just pop 2 gummies and you’re good to go!” – Bea C.

Orihiro Placenta Collagen (60,000mg - 30 Day Supply), P1,500
“I decided to try out collagen to make myself look more alive, well-rested, and improve my overall well-being. This collagen supplement comes in powdered form, so it’s so easy for me to mix it with my daily coffee or milk. Unlike other collagen supplements, this doesn’t have any fishy taste or smell. In fact, it smells sweet and doesn’t really have any taste when mixed with other drinks. After taking this for a month, I’ve noticed my skin feel plumper and firmer, my nails have gotten stronger, and I’ve experienced less hair fall, as well. One of my biggest concerns on taking collagen is that it might break me out, but I’m so happy this didn’t! I would definitely recommend this!”– Carli D.

Piping Rock Biotin 5000 mcg Fast Dissolve Tablets (90 Fast Dissolve Tablets), P540
“I’ve been drinking this for a couple of months now and I can definitely see the improvement. Super affordable too!”– Nina D.

Puritan’s Pride L-Carnitine 500mg (60 Caplets), P729
“L-Carnitine has been known for its fat-burning capabilities, but it also helps with muscle recovery. After taking this, my muscles don’t feel as sore as before after a strenuous workout. I also noticed a spike in my energy levels!”– Angie G.

Puritan’s Pride Oregano Oil 1500mg (90 Softgels), P459
“Ever since I started taking this in the morning, I noticed that body is able to last longer!”– Gaile T.

Roarganics BGC Weight Loss Blend Trial Size (180g), P899
“I love green tea so I find this product very delicious. It’s very effective at keeping you full for long periods of time. It definitely makes dieting a lot easier!”– Ina J.

Roarganics Green Coffee Extract (250g), P1,200
“I mix this when I make my own coffee and adds a nice, strong flavor to my drink. I feel more full when I add this in my coffee, and I love how 250g can last for a long time since you only need 1/2 teaspoon for each cup!”– Danna P.

Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Capsules, P3,500
“I really love the beach but I’m always afraid of the harsh rays of the sun. I discovered this product from my derma and I’m super happy that we carry this now. Although you still need to put on your sunscreen while swimming all day, this product definitely protects your skin and your face from those dreaded dark spots!”– Patty G.

Relumins Gluta 100 (60 Capsules), P990
“This works wonders! I’ve been buying this supplement for a couple of months now and it definitely helped control my breakouts! After my first month, my friends really noticed my glowing skin. Really worth it!” - Bea C.

Shiseido The Collagen Powder, P2,500
“I mix this when I make my own coffee and adds a nice, strong flavor to my drink. I feel more full when I add this in my coffee, and I love how 250g can last for a long time since you only need 1/2 teaspoon for each cup!”– Danna P.

SOZO Natural DFYAGE Oral Sunblock, Anti-Aging, and Whitening (60 Capsules), P3,295
“I still use physical SPF (never skip the sunscreen, ladies!), but I love the extra benefits my skin gets from these supplements. I feel like it really helps keep my skin healthy and glowing, so I consider it a vital part of my skincare routine, too.”– Ayana T.

Wheyl Nutrition Co. Just Melon Milk Whey Protein (454g), P550
“The only whey protein I drink! Tastes just like regular milk but healthier, super good when ice blended.”– Nyra S.

Wheyl Nutrition Co. Just Mocha Java Whey Protein (454g), P550
“This got me hooked on using protein shake! Really saw the benefits taken effect in my body. My workouts and post-workouts have felt better ever since I started using this.”– Joe B.

SOZO Natural 5-HTP Complex (60 Tablets), P2,150
“I struggle with bouts of insomnia, and after experimenting with plenty of similar products which promise sleep, only 5-HTP worked on me. It eases me into sleep and leaves me bright-eyed and energized in the morning. Plus, since I’ve started using 5-HTP, my mood’s significantly improved. I swerve bad mood swings more easily, it keeps me sane on the busiest of workweeks.”– Dani C.

Puritan’s Pride Zinc for Acne (100 Tablets), P539
“I had a pretty bad breakout earlier this year which was probably due to my irregular hormones. I tried to change me skincare and diet, but that didn’t seem to work. My friend recommended to try this particular supplement and I’m now acne-free! Though I didn’t see the full effect of this until my 2nd bottle, I highly recommend this product for its value for money.” Bea C.

Trulife Prune Extract (1 Bottle), P125
“TMI but 2019 is really the year where I was able to successfully get myself to go more regularly thanks to my increased water and fiber intake, my spirulina capsules and this product. Unlike regular prune juice, this one from TruLife has loads of other vitamins and nutrients so it’s harder working, plus it tastes good too! I like that it conveniently comes in single serve bottles so I can take them wherever. I recommend you follow the instructions of first taking it 10 days straight, and when you’re a bit more regular, you can just take them on days when you think you need a little more help!”– Patty G.
