When I first started @DrLaurenCastle on Instagram and Facebook for #WalmartSocialChamps, I couldn't wait to share about my favorite products and brands at Walmart that made wellness accessible and affordable. One of the very first brands I ever posted about was Evolution_18, "a collection of highly effective, simple formulas that are designed to target a wide range of beauty concerns. Formulated with clean, high-quality ingredients, these supplements have everything you need for a beauty boost from within. Get ready for gorgeous skin, strong nails, and shinier hair. Created by Bobbi Brown."
Not all supplements are created equal, so you need to read the labels closely! Or better yet, ask the pharmacist ☺️And if your pharmacist isn't sure, then you can both contact me and I'm happy to help! Over the 9 years I've worked at Walmart, I've seen our vitamin aisle continue to grow and adapt to include better quality formulations, and I think the Evolution_18 line is step in the right direction, but you'll actually find these products over in the wellness section of the beauty aisle since this category growing that rapidly.
What I enjoy about this line is that it's fun! I'm that pharmacist who hates taking pills, so anytime I can find a supplement in a liquid or chewable form, I am all about it! Most of these products are designed to be dissolved in water, which is an added benefit because you get in more hydration:
- EVOLUTION_18 Beauty Bubbles Hydration Antioxidant Blend Tablets, Pomberry, 20 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Beauty Bubbles Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid Tablets, Berry, 20 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Vitamin and Antioxidant Debloat Beauty Tea, 14 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Super Fruit and Vegetable Beauty Blend Powder, 15 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Collagen Peptide and Protein Powder, Unflavored, 14 Serving
There's also some that are super tasty, all without artificial flavors or colors:
- EVOLUTION_18 Beauty Hair and Nail Growth Gummy with Biotin and Keratin, Berry, 30 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Beauty Boosting Collagen Shot, Berry, 10 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Probiotic Beauty Blend Quick Melt, Lemon, 14 Servings
And here's the two that are in capsule form:
- EVOLUTION_18 Beauty Hair and Nail Growth Capsules with Collagen, Biotin, and Keratin, 20 Servings
- EVOLUTION_18 Beauty Glow Capsules with Collagen, 30 Servings
Once I bought all the products (yes, I buy them myself! This post is not sponsored), I started trying them at home and posting about them in my stories (I have a whole IG highlight on them!) Of course, I'd always tag @Evolution_18 and @justbobbibrown in my posts, and the coolest part is that Bobbi and her team would respond and share them, too! Over time, the connection just grew organically, and Bobbi invited me to do an IG Live with her so we could chat about all things Wellness at Walmart. This is why I love social media and being part of #walmartsocialchamps... we can create organic relationships with brands that are mutually beneficial for all: for the brand, for Walmart, for us as associates, as most importantly, for our customers. You can check out the IG Live in next blog post where I detail all of the amazing Walmart products we discussed in the video!
Overall, if you are looking to try out some supplements to support hair, skin, nails, and digestive health to create beauty from the inside out, check out the Evolution_18 line at your local Walmart or on Walmart.com!

Now, if you've followed me on social for the last two years, you've probably seen me post about #wellnessatwalmart, or #walmartsocialchamps, or #mywalmartstory. But I've always wanted a place where I could really expand upon those short captions or photos...
