In this Olly Undeniable Beauty review, we’ll master this thing. Meaning, I will strive to provide every and all relevant detail on it.
Through the process, we will cover promotional materials, their claims, active ingredients, additives, as well as we’ll wander with intent through customer reviews and the global success rates.
This Olly Is Similar To Others Of The Brand – Good Looking & Promising
It starts with the picture on the left side and various highlights on the other. This then evolves into a section of how it works explaining the idea briefly behind each of the added active nutrients. Then it addresses logistic questions like money-back guarantee and shipping, which then turns into customer reviews and two rather iconic aspects for every Olly Vitamins description page – “Made with Care” and “pairs well with” sections.
Each of the sections is pretty straight forward (providing exactly what the name of the section implies). And pretty predictable as well (for example, having the reviews be overwhelmingly positive).
To describe their supplement in a sentence, they say this, “These delicious little beauties are packed with the perfect blend of active ingredients to help keep your hair and nails in tip-top shape, and you shining bright.” Namely, they’re pretty much implying that it’s all about providing benefits to hair and nails, whereas that shining bright part refers to improving skin health [R].
All of which is also later again emphasized by stating, “These delicious little beauties are packed with the perfect blend of active ingredients to help keep your hair and nails in tip-top shape, and you shining bright.” So, they’re really emphasizing that and not pushing forward any other proposed benefits.
The Undeniable Beauty is gluten-free, artificial-flavors-free, and artificial-colors-free. But arguably the best thing about it is that its ingredients have been tested by NSF. Which basically means that there is no concern for running into a supplement that contains admixtures, lead, or other contaminated substances within it [R].
Plus, I have said this before and I still believe that Olly probably creates the best looking containers of all. But is there true value behind their looks?
Core Ingredients Look Nice, But That’s About It; Would You Really Want That?
As far as the beneficial ingredients, one could probably refrain to say that.
Per serving (meaning, 2 gummies), the Olly Undeniable Beauty offers 15 milligrams of vitamin C, 7.5 milligrams of vitamin E, 2,500 micrograms of Biotin, and 50 milligrams of Keratin. All exactly as advertised. The only thing not advertised though is the puny amounts. Obviously.
They imply that vitamin C is one of the key nutrients due to its role in Collagen production. Yet, they provide only 15 milligrams of it. Not only that’s more than 5 times below the minimal daily requirements that the 100% Daily Values are, but also it’s just ridiculously low to imply any actual benefits.
I mean, the amount is laughable when compared to the best practices for daily nutrient amounts.
The same goes for vitamin E. Granted, it’s not listed as one of the key ingredients in the supplement; it’s likely there to help preserve freshness and improve shelf life. Still, for anyone seeing it as an advantage of the supplement, it’s really not. 50% of Daily Value is rather low, to say the least. Furthermore, any self-respecting multivitamin – be it for men or women – will offer more.
As surprising as it may be for some, as I see it in this configuration, the Biotin (vitamin B7) is not perfectly ideal either. I mean, yes, don’t get me wrong, 2,500 micrograms of Biotin is a decent amount and it for sure can bring benefits to hair, skin, and nails. However, for a hair-skin-nails-oriented supplement that pretty much doesn’t offer anything else in meaningful amounts, that’s definitely not a lot [R, R, R, R, R].
Now, back to why I made that note about meaningful amounts. It’s because that last ingredient, that Keratin thing, is pretty damn scarce as well. Here’s why.
Any proper self-respecting Keratin supplement typically offers 250-500 milligrams of the substance. To compare, the Olly Undeniable Beauty provides only 50 milligrams. That’s 5-10 times less. Which at least for me, makes it doubtful that there can be something to truly gain. I feel, at best any benefits to hair due to the presence of this will be very limited [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Additives Are A Disaster But Not Because There Seemingly Are Many Of Them
The next obvious step is to consider the other ingredients added for the purpose of making the supplement. Or should I rather say not so obvious one?
Yeah, not a lot of people are willing to explore these. Out of ignorance or negligence, it doesn’t really matter. Because the other ingredients, commonly known as additives, have the capacity to undermine our health, no matter how little their amounts may relatively seem [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
But when it comes to the Olly Undeniable Beauty, that’s not even the case.
Here’s what I mean.
The first two ingredients of the additive list are Glucose Syrup and Beet Sugar. This indicates that there two ingredients that outweigh any other ingredients in regards to the raw total mass (given the FDA regulations that stipulate that manufacturers have to list ingredients in sequence starting from the heaviest by total mass) [R].
Thus, there’s at least twice the amount of sugar than there’s of any other ingredient (additive) in the supplement. Which may still not give the full picture. But let’s get to that.
So, as they state on the label, there are 2 grams or 2000 milligrams of sugar per serving. Whereas combining 15 milligrams of vitamin C, 7.5 milligrams of vitamin E, 2,500 micrograms (or 2.5 milligrams) of vitamin B7, and 50 milligrams of Keratin, we get to a total amount of nutrients that’s precisely 75 milligrams.
Now, compare that to the 2000 milligrams of sugar. That’s 26.7 times more. Or to put it in other words, for every 1 milligram of nutrients we are getting 26.7 milligrams of sugar.
I mean, one can’t possibly create a bad tasting supplement with such a formula.
Plus, given the alternate names of High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Glucose Syrup may actually be that thing. A substance known to cause heart disease, obesity, weight gain, diabetes, cancer, liver disease, depression, leaky gut, and a long list of other problems. Then there’s also that Beet sugar that only further adds to this notion. Granted that’s not on as harmful of a level but still [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Then there’s also Citric Acid that under certain conditions can cause extra problems. Which may be irrelevant (because it then can absolutely cause problems) in the particular case given that this Citric Acid is probably GMO. Recall any claims that their supplement is GMO-Free? I don’t. But they are quick to mention even the slightest of free-ofs (remember, those artificial-color-free and artificial-color-free?). Yeah [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Some may be puzzled as to how this is possible. Doesn’t the Undeniable Beauty have its contents tested by NSF?
Yes. However, NSF certification does not turn inherently harmful substances into harmless ones. All they basically do is test the existing ingredients for contaminants, admixtures, how much there is, and whether the supplement is not rancid; the inherent harmfulness of certain ingredients (like in this case) is by no means removed [R].
Success Rates And Reviews Are Obviously Very Good; Which Was So Predictable
Usually, this is a great section of assessing where a supplement is in real life. Meaning, how well it has served people and such. But given the weak active ingredients and even weaker other ones, with the Olly Undeniable Beauty, this really is just a section for fun.
And surprise, surprise… According to the Olly Undeniable Beauty reviews on the manufacturer’s website, it’s a truly well-received one. Only 2 negative ratings versus 31 positive one. Which means that supposedly the global success rate is sitting at 93.9%.
Which isn’t often actually the case when the reviews by all other sellers and retailers get assessed. I mean, it’s very similar to something we’ve seen with Hair, Skin, Nail health-boosting supplements like Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein and Code Age Multi Collagen (as well as many other). And it’s not the case here either.
Doing some profound research on this, I managed to gather together a total number of 1364 reviews. Of these, 147 were negative (1-star and 2-star ratings) and 1,217 were positive (3-star, 4-star, 5-star). Thus, this makes for a global success rated of 89.2%. Which is pretty high, right?
But I’m not surprised at all by this. People typically rate gummy vitamins by the way they taste, not by the ingredients that they contain. Vitafusion Men’s and its respective women’s one, Smarty Pants Prenatal and Adult Complete are just some of very many examples of this.
Still, that doesn’t make them a worthy investment as far as our best health and well-being go. Quite the opposite.
The Undeniable Beauty Is Not Undeniable; It’s Quite Miserable Actually
As I touched upon it at the start of the previous section, I see the supplement as something pretty non-sensical.
It may superficially seem like a valid option, especially given that NSF certification and all that stuff. Plus, the promotional materials are quite nice, and the Olly Undeniable Beauty supplement as of itself is a pretty visually appealing one. Furthermore, there’s that 30-day money-back guarantee which will likely get quite many over the fence.
That said, when immersing oneself into the ingredients it uses, it’s essentially a disaster. I mean the inactive ingredients due to all the sugar in it are pretty bad alone on their own. To make matters worse, the pure lack of proper beneficial ingredient amounts is just rubbish. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.
On that note though, there are some very capable hair, skin, nail improving supplements out there. In this regard, arguably the best I’ve ever come across is the Garden of Life Collagen Beauty (review). It offers quite a bit of Collagen coupled with similar amounts of Biotin (and a bit other stuff) to truly deliver value.
Above all, I hope this Olly Undeniable Beauty review helped you find the information you were looking for. Are the additives with this something you would overlook? Do you see yourself getting this one despite them? Or would you rather default to other options? Let me know below.
