Good and bad powder
This is more like a setting powder than a base, but with that in mind, it gives a beautiful finish. Pores are virtually eliminated and it gives a glow to the skin. However, the cinnamon in this seems strong and my nose was a little itchy. Also, if you have dry skin, this will make you even drier. I use it all over my face, including under the eyes, and it made me so dry, I had wrinkles I had never seen before.
Not for me
This is powerful stuff and I had a reaction of feeling achy, some trouble breathing, and altered mood. This may have been a detox reaction, but even occured when I would break open a capsule and use a little of it in water. I can handle detoxing effects, but what I cannot handle is how is made me short tempered, moody, and irritable-depressed really. I don't ever feel like this, so I tried it a couple of times to be sure it was the product and the same thing happened. I did not feel like something positive was happening to me so I will no longer use this product. I take another msm brand with no fillers or binders, pure msm, but not opti-msm and have nothing but beneficial results from that one.
Best natural deodorant

I used to have a drawer full of natural deodorants that seemed to make things worse than better. This deodorant has a nice fresh scent, very pleasant, and works better than all the others. No more drawer full of useless products. My husband uses this as well so it is good for men and women. Excellent product and service from Iherb.
Never be without it!

I don't think I can live without this product. Excellent for viral issues and Fibro symptoms. This has helped me and my husband with back pain and overall feelings of well being. I take other products for general health, but keeping all things constant and running out of this, my body became very achy. This is a wonderful, pure product that delivers extremely well. Love the lack of fillers and binders in the paradise herb products. Great price and service from Iherb.
A Must Have Product!
This product is one of the best supplements I have found for health benefits. I have had bad food allergies for the last 8 years and have been on a restrictive diet ever since. With Digest Gold, I can eat just about anything I want, although, I still eat healthy. This product has also cleared up candida related issues and made me feel much stronger. I give my son this product also because certain foods would make him really congested and if I give him this before he eats, no more congestion. Anyone with food allergies knows how hard it is to eat out or enjoy the holidays and worry about every little ingredient in each dish. It is very freeing to not deal with this issue anymore. This is a must have product for my family.
Love this vitamin
To me this is a good starting place for my supplement routine. I have to add more b-vitamins, calcium, magnesium, iodine, and a few other vitamins and minerals to fill in the gaps, but this is a good place to begin. I don't notice much energy improvement and can even take it before bed and sleep just fine. The best thing I notice is an improvement in my blood sugar levels as this seems to keep them steady. My major complaint is that my organic vitamin is stored in this plastic bottle and I really don't want extra BPA or other chemicals from the plastic leaching into my vitamin. I would gladly pay more for a glass bottle.
Not for my sensitive skin

This powder seemed ok at first. My skin felt soft, color was good, but when I washed it off, my skin had a reaction to something in it and I was red as a lobster. I wasn't outside, I wore it in the evening inside, and hadn't changed any other routine, so it was definately this that irritated my skin. I hate spending so much on a product that will just go in the trash. If you don't have sensitive skin, this might work for you.
Not for me
I hate to be the one that this did not work for, but I found digest gold to be a far superior product than this one for me. I tried this one based on the excellent reviews and little better price, but it only upset my stomach. I still had some digest gold which I had to take to make things better. I am glad it has worked so well for others.

I found this product to be very chalky and could only imagine it must be difficult for my body to digest this. I like the fact that it has all the supporting minerals in naturally occuring amounts, but I just could not stand comsuming it. I also have sensitive lungs and this seemed to aggavate my asthma. I think I read somewhere that calcium carbonate is a lung irritant, but did not know that until after I used the product. I also bought harmonic innerprizes calcium from the sea in the same order, and that one has been fabulous.
Must have product
Olive leaf is supposed to be good at keeping away viruses and seems to have many applications for health. I feel good when I take this product, so it has been a staple for me for some time now. Highly recommend paradise herbs, they have potent products with no fillers or binders.

This is a great mascara that does not irritate the eyes and makes the lashes look pretty. I do a couple of coats to build it up, but I have to do that with all mascaras. Since I have switched to this natural mascara and Larenim mineral eyeliner, my lashes have begun to grow. I used to use the chemical cheap stuff and noticed my eyelashes itching and falling out. My eyes no longer itch and my lashes are growing back to being full and pretty. Will buy this as long as it is available. Oh, and I thought it seemed expensive, but realized it is double the amount of what I used to buy and for me has lasted without drying.
Can't use this

First of all, I find it impossible to find good descriptions of each of the color choices on their website or elsewhere. Makes it near impossible to choose the right color online. I find this with most makeup lines and I just have to wonder if it is on purpose so people have to keep buying more product until they find their appropriate color. I went to their website and it was limited on descriptions, but this one looked like it might work for me. Not a big surprise, it is the wrong color for me, too light. I have a light to medium skin tone, less medium in the winter, but this is too light. It was cakey, accentuated pores, and within minutes, my face began to itch. Tried it a few other times and the same thing happened. Might have given a different color a try if the itchiness had not happened, but it did not agree with my skin in many ways.
