Disclosure: I’m proud to partner with CVS/pharmacy for this “radiance – Shine Inside and Out” campaign. I am being sponsored to help lead this campaign, but all opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at CVS.com or with the appropriate manufacturers.
I am VERY picky about what I put in and on my body. It’s a choice that was born out of necessity, and it’s become a way of life for me. But that’s not to say it’s easy to avoid all unnecessary chemicals and ingredients in the products I use because they’re snuck in everywhere. That makes it really hard to figure out what the best products are, even though I’m really good at label reading.
But to add to the equation, I’m vegetarian which can lead to anxiety when it comes to finding products I’ll use. It’s become a mission to find out all of the names used for ingredients that are made from animal products and which additives are natural and which I want to avoid.
Shopping for everyday items like vitamins means more than just what milligram dosage is required or what range of supplements are included in any formula. Those things are important, but I also want natural and vegetarian. Lucky for me, CVS just opened their first store in Washington State and there I discovered their line of vitamins perfect for people like me.
CVS Radiance PLATINUM Vitamins
The Radiance PLATINUM Line by CVS has supplements for everyone. The line currently contains 44 vitamins and supplements with various benefits including some that are vegan, non-GMO, and certified organic. CVS believe in the philosophy of beauty from the inside out and so do I. If you feel good, you have a natural glow that you can’t get from a makeup jar.
While I can get GMO-free and organic supplements from other sources, what’s outstanding about CVS is their pricing and they’re available locally. Being able to walk into a store and pay a fair price for the vitamins I need is something I’ve wanted for years.
About CVS Radiance PLATINUM Vitamins
Shopping for CVS Radiance PLATINUM Vitamins
In the store the CVS Radiance PLATINUM Vitamins are organized by type so it’s easy to pick up just what I’m looking for. It’s a little bit harder online because there’s no way to sort out the vegetarian/vegan products from the others so I have to go through each product’s individual listing to see if it’s a match for me. But each listing does have an overview, list of ingredients and nutrition facts (unfortunately this information is missing from a few), directions for use, warnings, and customer reviews when they exist. I appreciate being able to look up the information online since I’m unable to read the bottles. The type is too tiny and the lovely shiny bottles make them hard to read. But I’m over 50 and wear glasses, for younger people it’s probably not an issue.
Radiance Platinum All-In-One Superfood Chocolate Flavored Nutritional Drink Mix
My new favorite product in the line is the Radiance Platinum All-In-One Superfood Chocolate Flavored Nutritional Drink Mix. I’ve tried powdered mixes before and never liked the taste much. That’s all changed. This all-in-one chocolate flavored drinkable dietary supplement is fantastic. It’s vegetarian and gluten-free and when added to your choice of milk, tastes like a chocolate milkshake. I kid you not!
“Radiance – Shine Inside and Out”
I’ve finally found a use for that monster blender that takes up half my counter. Up until I tried the Radiance Platinum All-in-One Superfood Chocolate Flavored Nutritional Drink Mix I was considering giving it away because I never used it. Now it’s used daily and I wouldn’t give it up because it allows me to make the most incredibly delicious shake that I enjoy as a snack every single day. Yes, it’s that good!
I’ve started freezing banana’s to toss in with it so I don’t have to use ice, but on the day I first tried it, I used ice cubes, 8oz of plain organic soy milk, and one scoop of the All-in-One Superfood Drink Mix. I blended and enjoyed. The next day I did frozen blueberries and organic vanilla soy milk. Since then I’ve had about every fruit and chocolate combination you can think of. Using frozen fruit means I don’t have to add ice which I never seem to have ready in the freezer.
It takes about one minute to throw it all in the blender and blend – faster than unwrapping a candy bar, and it’s so much better for me. Maybe someday I’ll add some greens, but probably not. For now it’s a real treat and I don’t want to ruin that!

CVS ExtraCare Program
How did CVS make its Radiance PLATINUM Line of products even better? They earn points on the CVS ExtraCare Program – it’s a free savings and reward card that gives me personalized coupons and discounts on the types of items I purchase regularly. It also allows me to load any coupons running on CVS directly to my card so that I get the savings without having to remember to clip a coupon and take it to the store – something I can’t ever seem to do before they expire.
Pure. Simple. Radiant.
In fact, CVS has made it so easy that even a coupon-challenged shopper like me can’t help but save. Near the entrance to the store they’ve setup a convenient Coupon Center. Just scan your CVS ExtraCare card and it will print coupons for your favorite products, a summary of the coupons you sent to your card via the web or mobile app, and tell you what your totals are on for the ExtraBucks® Rewards, and more.
Save with CVS Ship & Save Program
Save even more by subscribing for automatic deliveries of your products. Products on the program receive a 20% off discount in addition to free shipping and you decide how often you want the product delivered. You can cancel at any time. There are restrictions and limitations – see the CVS website for complete details.
Radiance Platinum Vitamins and Supplements
I’m enjoying the supplements I received to try – if you notice they’re not brightly colored, and that’s a good thing! That means they’re not made with artificial colors which is very important to me. They’re a fabulous way to really work on my beauty from the inside out and I’m worth it!
