great clean without stripping hair
I love this stuff. A good gentle cleanser (with good lather thanks to the coconut oil) that doesn't strip moisture from the hair. I have color-treated, naturally wavy-curly hair and my hair loves this stuff. I also use the Coconut conditioner and love that too. I switched from the DE Shea butter shampoo and conditioner, and this is a little bit more costly but so worth it for hair that behaves.
Pleasantly liking this. 4.5 stars.

This is a good mineral foundation that covers well and has staying power. It has a dewy matte texture. My pores still show through but I was told to use primer beforehand to smooth out my skin. I rarely wear makeup though (other than mascara and lip color) so I'm not keen on using extra products, but in fairness, I might be expecting too much from a mineral foundation product without the primer. The color is an excellent match for my skin (light olive) and I can see why those of Asian descent would like this shade. Also, I love the sleek packaging as I have a small make-up bag and space is limited. Great to use with Eco-Tools retractable kabuki powder brush.
LOVE! Hair just drinks it up.
Love DE coconut shampoo and conditioner. This rich conditioner puts moisture back into the hair without weighing it down. I have color-treated, naturally wavy-curly hair and live in a dry climate so my hair just drinks this stuff up. Definitely noticed a difference the first time I tried it and will keep on using it. Switched from DE Shea butter shampoo /conditioner combo and despite the difference in price, I so feel it is worth it.
great texture and consistency -- inaccurately named color.

The texture of this lipstick is nice and creamy and it seems to have staying power (I only wore it for a few hours and then ate something so it came off). Colorganics lipsticks are rated 2 on the EWG Skin Deep database (the lower the score the better). The problem is the color is far from red or even a red shine -- it is a sparkly warm pink with maybe a slight mauve tint. The color didn't work for me (light olive skin) so I gave it to a friend with a different complexion. I'm not sure I want to try another color with Colorganics b/c the rest seemed more warm-toned than this color or otherwise too dark. Too bad, b/c I like the consistency.
3.5 to 4 stars

This concealer is a good product, but some improvements are needed. It is very smooth and easy to apply, and the Solar color is a perfect match for my skin tone (a light olive tone). As others have stated, I wish that it would conceal better and last longer. I also find it a bit dewy when I prefer a more matte formula. In summary, I like it, I may buy it again but I will try some other brands first. I like the so-called small size b/c I don't always wear make-up and often have product that goes bad before I use it up. Hopefully, MyChelle will improve this formula a little so that it conceals better and lasts longer.
this is good stuff!

Nothing's perfect in this world but this comes close. Fast absorbing, light moisture, sheer, no white residue (from the zinc), oily skin friendly. A great UVA and UVB protector (zinc oxide actually covers almost all of UVA and UVB spectrums and a little of UVC as well, and it isn't a chemical sunscreen with all those nasty health concerns). Barely discernable smell (zinc products often have a distinct smell). I wish they made a product for full body protection as well.
great sensitive skin cleanser.

I was really happy that iherb carries this, it costs at least 2x to 3x as much here where I live. Great sudsy cleanser for sensitive oily skin, cleans pores well, very gentle. I can see how those with drier skin types might find this drying though. I use it as a facial cleanser and all-over soap. I don't notice a scent, I would say it's fragrance-free.

To be honest I wasn't expecting much when I got this. I put about a nickel-size drop and spread it in my hands then applied to my damp wavy-curly hair. It didn't feel like much product and it was a bit sticky at first, but when my hair dried I had great curls, no frizz and it was soft. My 2nd-day hair held up just as well (and I usually really mess up my hair after sleeping on it). It smells like salad greens in the tube but that isn't noticeable once on the hair. Good hold but touchably soft.
Liking this better than the regular DE coconut lotion

Great moisture and spreadability, doesn't leave a greasy feel. I live in a dry climate and my skin drinks this up. I'm enjoying the smell of this lotion more than the regular DE coconut lotion -- the other one is great but has an overpowering coconut-hibiscus scent while this one is more subtle and slightly sweet, it doesn't really smell of coconut.
I use it not only for hands but as a body lotion too!

Great lotion. Very moisturizing and not sticky or greasy. Great on hands but I use it on my legs and feet too (dry climate). I've replaced Desert Essence Coconut lotion for this one since the smell is not overpowering on this lotion, but this one is the same price for half the product. I still think it's worth it though. Haven't yet noticed whether it fades spots as another reviewer said but I look forward to that too!
Great lotion! but I find the smell overpowering.

Really great lotion -- moisturizes well and not sticky. The fragrance is nice but I find it overpowering (strong coconut - hibiscus smell). I used it for a while but then I gave the rest away. If you are not sensitive to smells, then I do recommend it. I now use Desert Essence Pumpkin Hand Repair lotion as a body lotion instead -- but it is more expensive, half the product for the same price.
conditions hair really well, light texture.
I live in a cold, dry climate and I have only been using this for a little while, but I have noticed my colored, naturally wavy-curly hair just drinks this stuff up. My curls actually behave better than when I use drug store brands (previously bought and finishing up the bottles). I do however like DE's coconut shampoo conditioner better (b/c no proteins) as my hair seems to behave better with that shampoo /conditioner combo.
