WOW, unexpected GREAT result...
Posted by MamaToMany on Sep 26, 2011
I liked this immediately, but I just noticed today (about 6 days into using it every morning) that my normally very puffy undereye area is GONE! I'm not even exaggerating. I'm a mom of 5 and sleep isn't exactly on my side, so I honestly assumed that my puffy eyes was something I would just have to deal with. NOPE! I almost rubbed my normally puffy eyes when I looked in the mirror today. With no other change in diet or facial products, I have this product to THANK!!!!!! I am sold, for good! THANKS to Iherb for carrying the best products! Oh, and trust me, although I don't normally spend much on facial products, the cost of this is worth every penny for me not looking like I'm permanently ready to fall asleep.
Completely in love with this!

I'm a bit of a cosmetic junky, & have tried countless exfoliating products on my 34yr old skin. My skin isn't too bad on my best days, fyi, so I'm clear about what I'm starting with. This product is like gathering some great vitamins etc., & adding it to sand! This is truly a deep, coarse grit, not for someone looking for a gentle scrub. I have to take a deep breath & scrub deeply into smile lines, forehead & the places where you could park a car in my pores. After 1 week, my skin is radiant!!!!! This tub is the size of a basic moisturizing cream & will last a very long time!! I'm thrilled that I tried it on a whim :)
Throw away the 'zinc oxide' diaper rash products!
Posted by MamaToMany on May 02, 2013
I'm not mentioning the main diaper rash product by name, but you know which one I mean... All of my children reacted horribly to it, and after a bit of research, it's obvious why- and shocking that it's still such a popular product for our sweet babies, which such awful, carcinogenic ingredients (and perfume, which you should never have around sensitive private areas). BUY THIS SALVE INSTEAD!!!! My baby has a very, very sensitive tushy area, prone to intense, bloody rashes. I tried everything. Everything! I found this and the ingredients were what I was looking for: soothing, but also good for yeast. You do NOT want to "coat" the diaper area in a paste of white (like that zinc oxide product I mentioned earlier does)- as any potential yeast rash will only be worsened by it. This salve does not do that, it literally soothes, "heals" and then protects the area from further rash forming. I have purchased this about 6 times now, I'm back for 2 more, and I've told all new moms I know to buy this. Also, it truly does help cuts, scraps, heat rash & chapped lips/cheeks. Earth Mama Angel Baby makes a similar product (which is amazing, but a lot more expensive). Buy this and you will not be disappointed!
For colon AND pain!
Posted by MamaToMany on Apr 30, 2013
I suffer from extreme constipation, basically a "frozen colon". It is very serious, and I have struggled since I was about 12, sometimes only being able to "go" once every few months. I've done colonics, which only help on that day of the appointment and were very painful (and expensive and time consuming...). This has been a MIRACLE for me. It nearly brings me to tears, and I'm not being dramatic. Update: I really had to update my still-positive review. I have chronic pain from fibromyalgia, and a few nights ago was desperate when my pain meds weren't helping. I remembered my OxyCleanse, and took about 5 (knowing the calming benefit of magnesium). It helped SO much. I now recommend this for constipation AND also for anyone in pain. I have a hard time sleeping due to the pain, and taking these at night has helped with pain and sleep. I will never be without this product.
BEST ever- wish they sold more products
Posted by MamaToMany on Jan 15, 2013
Bought this for my husband more for the joke of the name, and was willing to try it for the price. We LOVE it. I am back for more! For anyone looking for a cute/funny gift for the holidays that actually has value, this is seriously it!! Great for kissing :)
My son is a changed boy
Posted by MamaToMany on Oct 04, 2012
My 7 year old son has been taking these for a week. He had moderate to severe ADD depending on what day; I got negative feedback from the start of school which really frustrated me. I ordered these, and within a few days he got his first A+ on his spelling test, no bad reports from teachers, and at home- he is a dream child. In fairness, I'm also giving him ChildLife Pure DHA and Omega Kids. The 3 of these combined have changed my son... and my entire home. Forget prescription drugs- this is a miracle. (I also removed all food-dye from the home about a year ago, but nothing helped as much as these products)
Expensive for only 8 pieces
Posted by MamaToMany on Jun 13, 2013
The package says that it contains 16 pieces, but I didn't notice until right now that there's a note on the product page that says there's an error on the package... It's a bummer, because my kids really like these, and it's hard to find a good candy/treat that's not made with food dye. I won't buy these again, because they're really overpriced for only 8 little rings. The 4 stars is because they were a big hit with the kids.
Parents: use this for cough remedy!!!
Posted by MamaToMany on Oct 31, 2015
Update: I had to spread the word to any mom's or dad's out there, who struggle with kids & night coughing during sickness. This formula is MAGIC. I have tried everything from the horrible, dye-filled OTC junk to natural cough remedies when my 7 kids get the infamous night cough that wakes the house... but the only actual relief comes from shaking a couple drops of this on the bottom of both feet, quickly rubbing it in with my hand, & using the residual to rub into their neck/hairline (places that can't possibly get to their eyes/nose/mouth). This WORKS within about 2 minutes, even during the times that they cough so bad I'm certain they're going to vomit. I will never, ever be without this!!! I'm on my 2nd bottle & use it daily. (Previous review:) I'm back for more... I use this and the 'sleep' blend also by Now Foods on my pillows and on my kids every single night. The 2 of these together make the most intoxicatingly relaxing formula. I have probably a 1/4 of a bottle left of each, but I'm so worried about not having enough that I'm ordering more. My whole family loves this and asks for it at night when they have trouble relaxing. I can't recommend this and the other sleep blend enough, and I'm honestly shocked that there are ANY negative reviews at all!!!

This does not detangle, not does it condition. I have 2 daughters with curly hair and one with stick-straight hair- it doesn't help any of them. The smell is unique... I can't place my finger on it- & honestly I'm not sure if I like or dislike that part of it. The product itself makes their freshly clean hair feel like straw. Then when it dries it looks and feels almost sticky and greasy-like. It's actually more difficult to brush my girls' hair with this than without it. I cannot understand why anyone would like this!!!
Kitty loves them!
Posted by MamaToMany on Mar 01, 2013
I'm so glad to have such a simple, easy, basic food for a treat! My 4 month old kitty loved them from the first moment I got them, now when I reach for them she tries to shove her whole face into the container. I don't add them to her food, just sprinkle a little on the floor for her to eat as a little treat. These are a staple in my home!
Best... soap... EVER
Posted by MamaToMany on Jul 03, 2013
Nubian Heritage is already a big hit for me and for my home, so I shouldn't have been surprised to fall in love with this one. My husband has used the black soap wash for a couple of years and LOVES it, I normally use the green tea one- and love the fragrance, but the consistency does take some getting used to. This one, however, is like silk and it smells incredible both in the shower and out. I'd rate it as a fragrance for someone who appreciates essential oils, who isn't looking for a fruity, frilly, youthful fragrance. I'd also not consider this an "old person" fragrance (no offense to anyone reading, but I'm sure you all know what I mean!). It's an extremely unique fragrance, and I LOVE that it stays very mildly on the skin (just enough and not too much!) after the shower. This is absolutely my newest Nubian love.
Rosie the Cat loves them!
Posted by MamaToMany on May 09, 2013
These are great- nothing but chicken! They don't smell like anything at all, which is soooo nice to not have stinky cat treats. Just wanted to note that these are a bit large, would be like a 'pop in your mouth' treat for a dog, but I do break them into smaller pieces for my cat. (She's fine with them being just as they are, but it makes them last longer if you break them up... and probably healthier to have smaller portions). For kittens, I highly recommend this same product in the smaller size- they come in a container which you can shake out either into food or just on a little plate for a mid-day snack (which is what I did), and the pieces are MUCH smaller- thus perfect for a little kitten. Now that my kitten is a cat, I got these & they're so much easier to handle & not so messy. They're a good inch or so per piece. These are a big hit.
