I hope my reviews will be helpful in assisting you to choose your products. I'm dealing with overlapping illnesses, so a lot of symptoms to treat. I try to review things that are not listed and hard to figure out online such as packaging type (is that bottle safe glass or is it toxic-plastic?) and contents (does that tea have a staple, string or simply pressed together?). Please keep in mind that I live in Southern California and that arid weather is very different than humid so, things that work for me, such as moisturizers or creams, might be too rich for you. Also skin types differ, I'm both oily and dry currently so I try to indicate all that. On occasion, I'll add humor to my reviews, particularly if I was unhappy (humor heals) and I love to vote Yes on others' helpful reviews. Thank you to those of you who remember to afford me the same courtesy. Welcome to my page and hope you find some fun, helpful or delicious products you hadn't tried before. Be well, everyone.

Potent skin-beautifying agent: deeply hydrating, softening & pore improver

Posted on May 06, 2015

10 people found the following review helpful

I was initially disappointed in this. I wanted a glycolic liquid as instant dry skin dissolver to replace the AHA mask I currently use on my sand paper-dry skin. I thought this gel would be it but no. To give you an idea if this might work for you, I live in arid desert climate, have combination super oily and severly dry skin (yes, the worst of them all: imagine super rough dry skin that shines like an oil slick!) It's however not sensitive. I have severe MCS and this is 100% unscented to me. (I purchased in cool weather). Product stung mildly the first time where skin was raw. I expected this to burn, dry and peel my top layer and hopefully dimish a small patch of some old (but mild) poke marks on my cheek and fix my bumpy chin from a very acne prone youth. This doesn't do that. However, I noticed that this softens skin on contact and is not drying but deeply hydrating. After a week of using this daily, along with their evening moisturizer and Badger rose oil, my dryness is completely gone as these products act for a good 12+ hours. (I layer as follows: oil, then moisturizer and finish with this.) Not only that but horizontal neck lines are dimished on contact, my skin feeks like velvet, smooth and looks youthful and pores, formerly the size of moon craters, have now turned invisible and tight! This effect is, for now, temporary. Note that I am now middle aged. You need to have some problem to fix or, of course, you will not see results. With these 3 products, my skin looks a lot better than it did in my acne-prone 20's. NOTE: I have now tried Devita without the Badger rose oil, it was not nearly as effective on my dry skin. Same with using oil only. I am at an age where I need all 3 products to heal dryness for 12+ hrs. When climate goes humid, the oiliness comes back fast. Now, for the bad news: not finding the Devita Rx cream with multi-peptides and another serum I never got around to trying, I went to Devita's website: to my surprise, they have discontinued a lot of their fancy creams! Are these excellent products next? Is the company dismantling soon? I would buy all that iHerb has in stock but for one, I can't afford it and, two, I only have one face, so they'd expire before I could use them all, so I am passing the info here and letting you try them instead of keeping them all to myself, as I'd love to do. ;) My fear is logging in and finding out they've either been discontinued or worse, reformulated like Mychelle did theirs! I hope iHerb carries them forever because I hate to be disloyal to my favorite store but I am already going elsewhere for items that iHerb sadly has quit carrying. I hope I gave you enough details to decide if it might work for you too. Please do target your products to your own specific needs, skin type and climate. Hope it will improve your skin as much as it did mine. Here's to us all looking the best we can with what we got. Be well, everyone! :)

Nothing natural, loaded w/toxic ingredients!

Posted on Mar 26, 2010

10 people found the following review helpful

Currently shopping for natural B complex. Happened on this item and I'm utterly shocked: not only is there 0 indication that the B vitamins come from 100% natural, non-GMO, non-synthetic source, the "other ingredients" are highly toxic! Just google each one of them and you will see clearly the dangers & the side effects for: Dicalcium Phosphate, Croscarmellose Sodium, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Dextrin, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide. Unfortunately the magnesium stearate is one that is hard to avoid but the rest on the list are far more toxic! Why buy a supplement that causes migraines & possibly cancer?

WRINKLE-CAUSING CARCINOGENIC INGREDIENTS ALERT!!!

Posted on Dec 02, 2008

29 people found the following review helpful

Read the label. Enough said. If you can't pronounce it, it's toxic. (Google the 2nd ingredient FMI) If someone gave me this as a gift, I'd toss it with the garbage. I would never pass this on to someone knowing how hazardous to your health the chemicals they use are. Educate yourselves, people!!

Instant side effects with only 1/3 scoop!

Posted on Feb 23, 2013

19 people found the following review helpful

This gave me a pressure headache within minutes of ingestion. I show symptoms of homocystinuria which might simply be mimicked by candida's malabsorption syndrome, the resutls are the same since I can't digest/metabolize B vitamins! Anyway, extensive research on homocystinuria led me to purchasing this item. I woke up just past 5am, a bit later than I wanted and right after breakfast started experiencing CFIDS/herxheimer symptoms. Thinking this would alleviate the fatigue, I put 1/3rd of a scoop in an empty capsule. Bad idea! I became instantly confused, with an incipient headache and just this feeling of overall malaise. Thankfully I keep charcoal caps at hand: they mop up toxins, medicines and supplements OD alike. I took 2 and within minutes experienced relief from the TMG side effects in the sense of head pressure gone, brain fog and fatigue lifted. I did a quick google on the side effects: many people at forums report the exact same thing. What a bummer! I thought this was the missing link, I guess not! Also please note: 1) There is no info provided as to whether this is the toxic synthetic TMG (now I do wonder!) or whether it's derived from natural sources. 2) Whereas shampoo bottles give detailed step by step instructions on where to apply the shampoo and what to do with it once you have hand to head, this bottle leaves us absolutely in the dark! It doesn't say whether to take on empty stomach or after a meal; it doesn't even tell us whether to drop the powder in food, tongue or how. I have empty capsules, if you do not, I don't know how palatable this is, might be bitter or sweet, don't know! On the plus side, there is a really cute tiny scoop inside this bottle. I guess 1 star for cute mini scoop! :-|

Excellent for circulation & against wrinkles

Posted on Nov 12, 2012

I take this with vitamin E for activation and against leg vein pain & poor circulation. It helps. I take 3 per day. It's also a potent antioxidant that is said to prevent and reverse wrinkles. I'm taking a lot of skin supplements & I've seen a remarkable improvement in the skin of my face.

Effective & works very fast!!!

Posted on Oct 28, 2012

This stuff is fantastic. We are experiencing some extreme weather here in California from very hot days to cold nights. Last night I started sneezing out of the blue but I could tell it wasn't my usual allergy symptoms: I was coming down with a cold, or worse! I only sprayed twice and felt instant relief! The sneezing stopped instantly and within minutes the malaise and weakness left me. Sure, I question if it's placebo (I mean, how could it work so fast?) but if this makes my mind that powerful then I want some with me at all times! I sprayed just a few more times before bed and this morning as I had left the a/c on anticipating a very warm morning but I was freezing cold when I woke up. I believe this little guy is a potent health-guard and germ buster and plan to carry this with me when the weather is cold or when in public. The taste to me is not strong at all. I know oregano can be very potent but this tastes mainly of ginger and is sweet. It's nothing like synthetic medicines and does not taste foul nor overpowering to me. I love it! I strongly suggest you give it a try, the price is unreal for this type of high quality ingredients. I just hope this one won't have those incredibly long delays when out of stock. I should get some for my friends too! Thanks iHerb for carrying this! :)

Promotes fat loss fast

Posted on Oct 29, 2012

9 people found the following review helpful

L-Carnitine is a top of the line amino-like product which works fast to melt body fat, however a minimum of exercise is required for this to work, whether it be walking fast or simply lifting heavy stuff around the house. I also take this for circulation problems, particularly to the brain and arms. I went from 500mg a day to 2g (from 1 pill to 4 per day) and I see better results all-around at 4 pills per day. Always safest to start slow to gauge results and potential reactions. No side effects for me at either dosage. Thanks to this and several other amino acids, I now have muscle tone again after medical steroid treatment catabolized my muscle tissue everywhere. Always take on empty stomach. This a very good brand.

Best salt I ever tried!

Posted on Aug 17, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

Charcoal is very healing to detox chemicals and other environmental toxins, particularly if, like me, you have MCS. I take charcoal pills already so I was intrigued by this salt. This salt is full-bodied, tastes like delicious, natural sea salt but has an incredible yummy flavor. Not smoky or anything bad. The grinder has a tab cap which should make it easier to lift off but somehow mine gets stuck and is quite a challenge to remove. That's my only negative here, but not enough to warrant removing a star. The grinder words well. Now I use white pepper and black salt on my food, how cool is that?! Oh and PS: black salt has more than just the culinary use. Virtually undetectable and conspicuous use. Let's put it this way: annoying loud neighbors? Seems to work, enjoy! ;)

Good

Posted on Jul 04, 2009

I prefer DeSouza's liquid chlorophyll but they, much like salad dressing manufacturers, insist on making the opening too big so you spill way too much so that you waste it and their sales go up. So I stopped buying the liquid. (The stains can be permanent on your countertops). This is ok. Works well as internal deodorant, detox, antioxidant and more. DeSouza's chloro. in caps has more pure ingredients but iHerb so far doesn't carry it.

Excellent taste, helps me overcome cold & flu, said to be great for thryoid

Posted on Mar 13, 2014

9 people found the following review helpful

This coconut oil tastes great, lots of coconut flavor. I leave at room temp & spread on sprouted bread or put it in the fridge and slice a piece and eat like a candy bar. I used this VCO when I came down with a cold (or flu not sure) and it nuked the symptoms right away. It's also an anti-fungal so if I eat too much I get die-off reaction but this is gentler than anti-candida pills and works just as well or better. VCO is also said to be great for thyroid function &, being a saturated fat, it's also anabolic and lipolytic, meaning it helps burn body fat & build muscle without exercising. (At least it does me, due to muscle memory from back when I used to be a gym rat). 100% natural & organic, nothing added, comes in a glass jar so no plastic leaching into our OEVCO. An all around winner and I love it at room temperature, or cold and hard small bite size pieces after refrigeration: it reminds me of the inside of an Almond Joy bar!

Doesn't work but loaded with toxic ingredients!

Posted on May 17, 2009

9 people found the following review helpful

So much for Dr. Perricone's claims on PBS! Not only doesn't this product work in the least for weight loss, it is loaded with dangerous ingredients such as Dicalcium Phosphate, Sucrose, Fatty acid ester, Silicia! (??) I mean if you're taking this to balance blood sugars why add "sucrose" to the equation?! It's like commercial toothpastes that are loaded with sugar! I wish I could give this negative stars to diminish the 5 stars the others gave when they clearly wrote that they had no idea if it works or not. Well I'm here to tell you: save your money and buy some chromium instead: it does not!
