Iherb Reviews by Author and Health Journalist

New to iHerb? Use coupon code DAW513 for up to $10.00 off your first order.


Hi, I am a freelance journalist, predominantly producing health features and treatment reviews and an author of four books, three of the self-help genre and one, Toxic Beauty, discussing the hazardous toxic chemicals used in everyday cosmetic and personal care products. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and have found various useful products on Iherb. I honestly don't know where I'd be without Iherb since the product prices are so reasonable and enable me to purchase supplements I wouldn't have access to in the UK. I purchase most of my natural beauty products and snacks from Iherb as they seem to offer some good organic protein snacks that aren't ludicrously high in sugar and some great organic skincare lines. I I hope my Iherb reviews give you some insight into my thoughts about the products Iherb carry.

Love it!

Posted on May 15, 2012

19 people found the following review helpful

I know I keep banging on about it, but I wrote a book on toxic chemicals in cosmetics and find it hard to get a decent shampoo and conditioner that doesn't contain lots of toxic synthetic chemicals. It's impossible to get a perfect conditioner because it will have some synthetic ingredients to do its job, but this worked well, left my hair smooth and didn't have an irritating scent. Overall I really like Acure Organics products and will continue to purchase them in the future.

Excellent Conditioner!

Posted on May 16, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

Great natural product. As author of Toxic Beauty about the hazardous chemicals frequently used in cosmetics I have a vested interested in natural products and it's tough finding a good natural conditioner. None of them are perfect I can assure you, regardless of what the brand might say, but this one is pretty good and I use it a lot. It leaves my hair soft and doesn't seem to strip my scalp of all its natural sebum like mainstream and even some 'natural' brands.

Useful form of vitamin C

Posted on May 16, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

It's said that liposomal vitamin C is easier for the body to use as we are only able to use around 10% of sources such as Ascorbic Acid. I find it useful because it doesn't irritate my gut inflammation like other forms of vitamin C and it does give a pronounced energy kick. I haven't noticed any long-term results yet, but I will keep purchasing this product.

Fine

Not great, I've had better brands that produce raw sauerkraut and it seems to have a more beneficial probiotic impact. Not so impressed sadly :(

Quick energy boost

Posted on May 16, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

I find this ginseng vials great for a quick shot of energy as I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I know sufferers are not supposed to rely on these too much as it can over-stress the adrenal glands, but when you desperately need an energy boost because you have to go somewhere it's perfect.

Good B complex

I found this recommended in a book for Chronic Fatigue sufferers. It's a good quality B complex with the active forms making it easier for the body to utilise.

Great sunscreen

Posted on May 15, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

This is a good sunscreen. It goes on easily, blends in and doesn't leave too much of a white tinge. It's touch as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can leave that whitish tinge, but this rubs in fairly well. It also smells great and did a great job of protecting my skin from the Corfu sunshine! It's the only sunscreen I will be buying in future.

Decent probiotics

Posted on May 16, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I often find that probiotics cause cause, bloating, stomach discomfort or other side effects and do very little else, but I like this particular brand and have had better results generally with them.

Definitely helps

Definitely relief with concentration levels etc but this makes me a bit jittery. I think it's good to build up to the dose.

Good toothpaste

Posted on May 16, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

This product is great in terms of not containing lots of toxic chemicals and it's a bonus that it contains xylitol. I use another toothpaste too, but I do find this one seems to work ok, where as in the past I have used natural toothpastes that did absolutely nothing. I would purchase it again. I prefer Urtekram's natural toothpaste though.

Yummy nut butter!

Posted on May 17, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I always buy Artisana products, but I have one issue, everything is too dense and solid, I like my nut butters a bit easier to spread. Please fix Artisana! Otherwise fabulously addictive!
