I was expecting so much from this iHerb best seller serum, however, it brought nothing but disappointment to me. It hasn't brighten my skin up, it hasn't moisturized it nor has it healed faster blemishes that I got after climate change due to a flight. I have been using this serum since I got it in August - and it was so much anticipated - but I am surprised in a negative way. Oh, and the smell is awful. Nevertheless, I am the one who tries to be objective about treatments, so I will definitely update my review if somehow this product starts to behave.

It's oily, sticky and my skin doesn't feel good in it. Mizon's snail repair serum is my ultimate must have. And, yes, prices have been raised on K-beauty items tremendously. Not cool, iHerb, not cool.
No effect at all
Posted by Reviewer1716662 on Aug 21, 2012
I took this for 2 months, ate 240 caps with a disgusting taste to notice absolutely no positive effect on my mood, my health or whatever should has been relieved from everyday stress. Not sure about the probable placebo effect other reviewers had, but in my case nothing's been improved for the better. I am very disappointed with the caps as I really needed something that helps to overcome some difficult situations from time to time. My point is that taking a normal amount of magnesium daily does that thing more efficiently.
Unfortunately nothing special

This ketchup tastes absolutely the same as Heinz ketchup. I used to like the Dutch sauce because the taste was mild and ingredients were totally natural/organic, but then all of a sudden they have changed the dosage of vinegar making once my favorite (ok, the only good) ketchup a no-no. Here the situation with vinegar is absolutely the same - as I taste the sauce, I feel burning in my throat and my eyes become wet and irritated. The best ketchup that I have found is sold in my country and is manufactured by Mutti (I hope it is signore Riccardo Mutti himself presses tomatoes during intermissions of his concerts).
Not a good product

I'm so glad I didn't buy this essential oil in larger size. Despite my primary purpose was to use this oil in a diffuser lamp, I also hoped to add it to my hair potions and body lotion. Guess what, it is useless in both ways. When I diffuse the oil, it burns with a horrible black smoke, leaving absolutely no fragrance, even though I spill not less than 5 drops in a lamp. As for cosmetic enrichment, it fails to work, too. Again, very weak and not lasting scent, which dilutes after a minute or so. NOW produces a huge range of products, it has its bestsellers and those are very good, however, essential (and base, btw) oil by this brand is a total waste of money, time, mood and just everything. I own one essential oil by Aura Cacia, so I can tell the difference in quality.
My must have
I started taking chondroitin&glucosamine few years ago as I suddenly discovered pain in my knees after long monotonous city drives with lots of traffic lights and jams. It hurt so much, I couldn't even get out from the car and walk, I lamed. Doctors, however, concluded I was fine, yet a bit in need of additional benevolent treatment for lower joints. Well, their advice was a good one, the supplement helped tremendously. I took a course of 2 months of this, and suffered no more for a long time ( I have to note that I am very young, I was in my 19-20 when I first took the medicine). Since that I take c&g from time to time, and this one here is just way cheaper than in my local drugstores. Uhm, for those who hope on improving skin and hair and nails - nope, these pills did nothing of that for me.
I love it, I love it, I love it

It smells so divine it is really hard for me to resist to eat it as a dessert. I actually knew the fragrance, which is totally natural, would be great because I love mango, but the reality is ten times more amazing, and this cream is absolutely wonderful. It has a delightful consistency to help maintain dry skin without making it greasy. Yes, I still feel some butter 15 minutes after application, but I do feel anything anyway - there is nothing in my memory that my skin absorbed totally. You should try it yourself to fall in love with this body cream, or you should better not give it a shot and save more jars for me for the only flaw I found there is that 180 grams of a potion is not enough.
Definitely helps maintaining intensive workouts
I stopped taking it after I heard it may slow down a thyroid. Before I used to take it with my espresso in advance of a high intense workout. Yes, coffee was taken to improve stamina, too. I felt so much better, I couldn't stop running or making circles on an elliptic machine after more than an hour of high tempo. In all other situations coffee doesn't contribute to my energy level (I sometimes take it before bed), so it was a great combo.

It is amazing how a balm which is not made of petrolatum can moisturize and protect lips. I only had this feeling of very soft yet not greasy lips after, well, eating something oily like fried chicken or drinking hot beverages. No Neutrogena or Nivea lip balm would actually work once you wipe it away from your lips, with Hurraw! I can feel my lips absolutely great and tender. And no dreadful white stripe in between.

The tea is great, I strongly disagree with the previous review. I am a big fan of Lapsang Souchong and have been buying it for years. I've tried many famous brands (for example Kusmi) along with unknown Chinese supplies, and can say that this one is of high quality. In no way aroma is bland or inexistent, vice versa, the remarkable 'salami' fragrance is intense, just the way it's meant to be. The color is deep amber and very pleasant. While Twinings is definitely not the best tea brand, they make good products, and if you are unlucky to have a variety of best tea brands available to you, then have no doubts and go for this one. I can add that it really matters where a pack of Twinings comes from (Polish is horrible, while British - surprise! - is the best), and iHerb's supply is very good.
Not spicy enough, still good

I love spicy sauces, so I had to try this one out. Well, it could have been hotter to my taste, I find it rather adopted to Western taste. However, if you're not a fire-eater, this might be your choice of Asian sauce for BBQ, fish, seafood or noodles. I plan to use it when I cook bibimbap.
Won't buy again
It's very mild for my thin delicate skin. It sure helped some with the overall dewiness, but there was nothing remarkable about this cream at all. I gave it to my mom, who despite having much thicker skin, felt moderate burning when using this. She had similar unpersuasive results.
