I was a bit sceptical when buying this but I thought it was worth a shot as I had been constantly ill the last year. I suffered through strep throat three times in six months and I had the flu about as many times in the same amount of time. My immune system was in really bad shape and the antibiotics I had been taking didn't exactly help in strengthening it. So I tried this product out, fully expecting it to not help me whatsoever. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. I've been taking one vcap a day for about nine months and I haven't been sick once. It sounds too good to be true, but it's not! I will continue buying this product for as long as iherb stocks it, that's for sure. EDITED TO ADD: It's now October 9th, 2015 - more than six years later - and I still take this product daily and I am very rarely ill. The occasional light cold once a year at most, and I have two young kids so I'm around germs a lot. This is the best supplement I've ever used and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone!

I like every aspect of this product except for the taste. It's VERY sweet. Granted, I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but for me this is almost unbearably sweet. I will continue using it, though, because it fills me up and I like that it provides me with a good amount of protein. I recommend it to people who like sweet things!

This seems highly absorbable and I haven't had any problems with constipation while taking this (which I've had with every other iron supplement I've tried). Love that it has a child-proof lid as well, that is important.
Nice mild cleanser
Posted by Reviewer2483880 on Sep 07, 2014
I agree with the reviewers that say that this has a runny consistency! (And I live in Scandinavia, our climate here is not particularly hot.) This is liquid in consistency, not gel-like like many other cleansers. That aside, this is a very good cleanser! I have oily/combination/sensitive skin and I like to use a gentle cleanser in the mornings and this really fits the bill. It cleanses nicely but gently (it can probably not remove makeup). The scent is citrusy with a tinge of honey, you can call it a sweet citrus if you like. It's pleasant. It does not irritate. The only bad thing is that the opening constantly clogs, it gets a bit messy. I would prefer a pump.
Healthy but not so tasty

I have tried most of Y.S. Organic Bee Farms honeys and enjoyed them very much but this one is not so tasty. I assume it's the buckwheat I'm not particularly liking (I have not yet tried the buckwheat honey from the company so I can't say for sure). The taste is very potent and not particularly sweet. I will finish the jar though, as I know that it's very good for me! Hopefully I can get used to the taste, I really want to like this, however, right now I much prefer the manuka honey and the poma honey!

My skin is combination/oily, but also dehydrated. Some face washes for oily skin tend to dry my skin out, but this doesn't. It's just perfect - it cleans very well (I haven't tried it for removing makeup, though, it's might not be deep cleansing enough) but doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. Doesn't sting my eyes, either. The scent is fairly strong, though, I happen to love it (smells spicy, kind of like gingerbread to me) but if you're sensitive to scents please keep this in mind.

I use glycerin in my homemade toner. I really like this product, it's pure and I really love how it dispenses from the bottle, very easy to pour out the right amount compared to other brands I've tried. I will repurchase.
Tastes really good!

I bought this thinking I wouldn't like them that much - yes, I know it's stupid, but my curiosity got the best of me and I knew it was a healthier alternative than many other protein bars. I'm really delighted to say that I actually love them! Someone mentioned that it reminded them of strawberry fudge, and I agree. Now I'm going to try out some of the other flavours...
Like everything about the product except the smell
Posted by Reviewer2483880 on Jun 18, 2010
If this body wash had a different kind of smell I would love it - it's creamy, doesn't dry out my skin and the pump bottle is very convenient - but I seriously dislike the smell! I'm usually ok with most scents - herbal, fruity, flowery, sweet, woodsy - but this is pungent and, to me, the complete opposite of 'clean'. I will use up my bottle but not repurchase.

Ok - here's how it is: I'm an orange blossom FIEND. If something smells like orange blossom, I'm all over it. However, I'm a bit fussy and don't accept watered-down or synthetic smelling orange blossom. (Kiss My Face orange blossom hand soap was a big disappointment, for example.) This smells DELICIOUS. If you love the smell of orange blossom please buy this, you will not be disappointed! As for the rest of the qualities of this soap: it lathers nicely, doesn't dry out my skin but I can't deny that this product's biggest selling point is it's amazing scent!
My favorite toner
Posted by Reviewer2483880 on Oct 09, 2015
I have oily, breakout-prone skin. This is my favorite toner, it is astringent but not too drying. It helps to keep my skin clear and calms it down and I love that it has a low pH, that is much better for the skin. (In fact, the pH is very low, so if you have sensitive skin it may be too low for your liking but my skin is used to low pH products.) The smell isn't exactly pleasant, though, that's the only negative but I can live with that because it works so well. Highly recommended for people with oily skin that isn't extremely sensitive!
Very good lotion
Posted by Reviewer2483880 on Jan 27, 2014
I'm in two minds about this. MY SKIN TYPE: Combination/oily, very breakout prone. POSITIVES: Has a great ingredient list! Gives reliable sun protection. Doesn't break me out (most sunscreens do) and also keeps my skin fairly matte for a couple of hours (this is really good, with other sunscreens - even those for oily skin - I'm oily again after less than an hour *sad face*). NEGATIVES: Leaves a very obvious white cast! My skin is very, very pale (Scandinavian) so I can live with that, but someone with a darker complexion might look ashy. The worst thing (for me) about this lotion is that it has virtually no slip. I moisturize just before applying (this also helps with the white cast, by the way) but still, this lotion drags on my skin A LOT. I'm not really comfortable with that, I feel that it irritates my skin. I still haven't made up my mind if I'm going to repurchase or not, but overall it's a very good product if you can deal with the negatives!
