Watch out for the ingredients
This not only contains parabens but Diazolidinyl urea. (my fault for buying it without reading the label). I have thrown it out. Diazolidinyl urea is a formaldehyde releaser, & is sometimes used in cosmetic products as a preservative, was recently re-classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to its highest toxic class, IARC 1 (known human carcinogen). Formaldehyde is classified as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which provides sufficient evidence that formaldehyde causes nasopharyngeal cancer in humans.
Inulin - seems to help

My Gastro dietician said it was now thought to be better to take PREbiotics rather than probiotics for IBS. She said to try a variety of Prebiotic foods but also to give Inulin a try. I've just taken it a week but haven't had a bad IBS attack which is great. I'm also taking Jarrow Probiotics as I want to cover all angles!

I'd bought a higher strength Vit E but it was too thick to apply without tugging the skin. This is much easier to apply and helps my dry itching hands.
Nasty! - not for me.

I bought this as I read a review that it was kinder to the gut than other brands of ALA. It gave me the most awful heartburn and gut pain. Had to throw it away. Maybe ALA in general is not for me as I have a sensitive gut.
This lotion has a nice light scent. Great for very dry skin with a long lasting effect. Much nicer smell that the Coconut one.

I love the smell of this soap - very uplifting.

I've tried this on my eyes and lips then went mad and used it all over my face. It's a great makeup primer and leaves my skin nice & soft. The wax needs a bit of work to soften it. Shame it's so expensive for a small pot as it will soon go using it all over my face & neck. Hope the face cream is stocked soon so I can try that.

So much cheaper than in the UK which only does a much smaller size. This form of Vit. C is very kind to the stomach.
Not too sticky

Unlike another comment I don't find this too sticky or maybe my skin absorbs it better as my skin is very dry. The oil starts off sticky but you have to keep rubbing it in well. A little goes a long way. Good price as I think it will last a long time.

I love the Ester-C moisturizer so thought I would try this as well. I've only tried this once but feel it helps. A very small amount goes a long way so good value for the money.
Great price for this product as it lasts for a long time.

Very light textured oil which I use on my face. Makes my skin feel very soft.
