Buying vitamins can be a bit of a minefield…
The cheapest vitamins are often full of additives, fillers and animal-derived ingredients. They often contain genetically modified ingredients that aren’t sustainably sourced and may not be easily absorbed by your body. Cheap vitamins not only smell and taste bad; they can also cause some quite unpleasant side effects! (Trust me, I’ve tried them).
At the other end of the scale, you have vitamins like Feel. These popular supplements are seen on TV, in magazines and in newspapers and even have celebrity endorsement by Cheryl Cole.
But what’s the difference between Feel and cheaper vitamins? Are you just paying a premium for clever marketing? Will your body be able to actually feel any difference?
I’ve tried a selection of Feel vitamins including Feel Multivitamins, Feel Algae Omega 3 and Feel Beauty Probiotic+. I also have a separate review of Feel Focus.
I’ve also tried many vitamins from other brands and you can see my reviews on those here:
In this Feel review, I’ll show you the pros and cons of Feel vitamins so that you can make up your own mind about whether to go ahead and make a purchase. I’ve also included some discount codes that you can use to get the best price.
Are Feel Vitamins Any Good?
I’m very impressed with the Feel vitamins I’ve been taking including the multivitamin, algae omega 3 and beauty probiotic.
I love that they’re all vegan and cruelty-free and that the packaging is 100% biodegradable. Feel vitamins offer great value for money and now I know how they’re made, I won’t go back to other cheap and nasty vitamins.
The omega 3 doesn’t taste great, but the others are tasteless and odourless.

Feel offers several different products, so you can pick which ones you want based on whether you want a general multivitamin, more energy, better sleep or an immunity boost. There are vitamins for pregnancy, aching joints and a whole host of areas where your body may need a little support.
The Feel Multivitamin is the best vegan multivitamin that I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot! You can see how they all compare here: The Best Multivitamins for Vegans.
I’m in love with Feel’s Beauty probiotic. My hairdresser was shocked at how quickly my hair had grown. I usually get fake nails, but as they’re growing so quickly too, I’ve decided not to bother any more and to see if my own nails will grow without breaking.
The only supplement I wasn’t keen on was the Algae Omega 3. While I’m sure it tastes a lot better than fish oil, the algae taste just kept repeating on me. So, I’ve gone back to my preferred vegan omega 3 supplement which you can read about here: The Best Algae Omega 3 Supplements.
Pros & Cons of Feel Vitamins

- Omega 3 has an aftertaste
Feel vitamins come in capsule form. These are better than tablets because they break down quickly and don’t require any bulking agents to stick the active ingredients together.
While most vitamin capsules are made of gelatin that comes from animal bones, tendons and ligaments, Feel capsules are all plant-based.
The capsule size is slightly smaller and narrower than mast others. The photo below compares Feel Multivitamins and two other leading brands.
Created by Experts
The formula in each type of Feel vitamin supplement is created by leading nutritional experts. They conduct extensive research and use thousands of studies to craft the perfect formula.
The ingredients are all natural, sugar-free and don’t contain gluten, soya or any other allergens.
Easy to Digest
Feel vitamins contain the ‘most bioavailable’ forms of vitamins and minerals.
Bioavailability refers to how easily a substance can be absorbed and used by our bodies. Because there’s no point in taking excessive doses that pass straight through us and out the other end without entering the bloodstream. And that’s exactly what happens when low-quality ingredients are used.
As well as the vitamins that you would expect, Feel vitamins include a whole host of added extras like turmeric, reishi mushrooms and grape-seed extract.
These natural ingredients aren’t found in other vitamin brands, but they will help to boost your health.
All Feel vitamins are cruelty-free, suitable for vegans and are approved by The Vegan Society. They don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients like gelatin, lanolin or stearic acid. There’s also no palm oil.
Made in the UK
Feel vitamins are manufactured in the UK. This has two main benefits:
Firstly, the UK has some of the most stringent safety regulations in the world. Some other supplements that are manufactured in the US and Europe would not be allowed to be made in the UK.
Secondly, buying anything that’s made in the UK is better for the planet as fuel isn’t needed to transport it around the world.
Feel vitamins come in biodegradable paper or cellulose pouches. These can easily be recycled or composted.
The pouches come inside a letterbox-friendly cardboard box. This means that you never have to be home to accept your delivery. If you order more than one product, they will all be delivered together.
Feel vitamins can be delivered all over the UK as well as the Channel Islands and Europe (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden).
Delivery within the UK is free of charge. Delivery charges outside of the UK varies depending on the country and the weight of the order.
Products are dispatched the next working day after you order and take up to two business days to arrive in the UK and 10 days for the rest of the world.
You don’t have to subscribe to order Feel vitamins, but it makes sense to. Not only will you have the benefit of not having to reorder, but you’ll also pay considerably less when you subscribe.
Subscription is commitment-free, so if you just want to try Feel for a month, you can just cancel after your order arrives.
Cancelling your Feel subscription is easy. You can do it with a quick phone call or by emailing [email protected]. Just be sure to make your cancellation request at least three business days before your next order is scheduled.
You can also delay or skip your next order by logging in to the Feel website and selecting ‘Schedule’ from the menu.
Feel vitamins are priced very competitively. They’re not the cheapest, nor are they the most expensive.
Feel vitamins contain the highest-quality ingredients. But, because you buy them online directly from the Feel website (rather than from a physical shop or an online retailer like Amazon), the company doesn’t need to pay retail markups. This means that you can get the best-quality vitamins for an affordable price. Yay!
Feel Vitamins Discount Codes
There are two ways to order Feel vitamins for much cheaper than the advertised price…
- Place a monthly subscription (that’s easy to cancel)
- Get an extra 10% OFF by using a discount code CHOOSEVEGAN
Students can also get a discount on Feel products via Student Beans.

After having taken Feel vitamins for several weeks, I’m very pleased with the results. These vitamins have everything I could want from supplements and I believe that they are worth every penny.
I love that the ingredients are high-quality and the innovative packaging is ideal. With a subscription, I will never run out of vitamins and if I do forget to take some, I’ll just pause it so I don’t end up with a backlog.
The only downside from my experience of Feel vitamins is that I didn’t like the taste of the algae omega 3. The others all tasted of nothing so I will happily continue to take them.
