Good for the skin, but I use it all in a very short time
Posted by Reviewer2686341 on Apr 08, 2013
I have very dry skin, but not extremely. The kind of skin that wants body butters instead of regular lotions. This is good for the skin, and does an OK job at moisturizing(still need to apply oil after shaving my legs/if I scrub etc) - but since I use so much of it I don`t feel like bying it. I would have if they had larger bottles, say 500 ml. So: goo, but too small bottle - and I really can`t be bothered purchasing new ones every 3 weeks or what. It does have a certain smell, but not perfume - and not really noticable. My nose is quite sensitive to smells. I think it will be fine also for intolerant people - but if you are extremely sensitive to all kinds of smells no matter what, I would use sweet almondoil instead.
Very different effects - sometimes dewy, sometimes several breakouts.....

In short term basis, this stuff is great for my skin. I have very dry, sensitive - but acne-prone skin(it will break out from almost anything that can possibly make your skin break out). My Dermalogica Intensive Moisturizer wasn`t enough, so I want to have a a little oil underneath. I`ve tried jojobaoil, avocado oil, apricot kernel oil - but they all break me out or doesn`t do anything positive for me. I tried this since I`m just in my 30s, and at first my skin looks really great in the morning. Plump and dewy - I like it. Very sensitive to smell, but I don`t notice anything about this oil. But, again(I`ve tried this before and stopped due to clogged pores) - yes, new clogged pores. Small tiny comedones everywhere - and I`ve skipped makeup for several days, so I know it`s not that. The comedones go away pretty fast when you stop using it, so I do recommend trying it. If it doesn`t break you out, it`s a great oil.
Change in capsule type makes me somewhat nauseaus

The last bottle I purchased was fine, didn`t have any problems(I take one capsule right before breakfast). On occation I could taste the omega3 afterwards(you know the feeling), but it wans`t really overpowering and I almost didn`t notice it. The new bottle has a different kind of capsule, you can see it and taste it; tasted like glycerin which I didn`tlike, but it`s fine since I eat breakfast afterwards anyway. The only thing is that I almost thought I was pregnant or something; often got nauseaus in the morning, and I often ended up taking a capsule of ginger to make it go away. Doesn`t happen every morning, but on more occasions than I like. I finally realized it was the omega3 capsules, which never happened with the other bottle(or any other brands I`ve tried) that had a different kind of capsule. If this doesn`t change very sooon I`ll have to buy a different brand.
Does not give a fresh breath feeling like other toothpastes

Don`t know if it`s good for the teeth(probably is) - but, it doesn`t give that fresh breath feeling that I`m used to with toothpastes. Feel like I need to follow up with mouth wash every time to get that fresh feeling. Edit: Every morning after using it at night I have minor bleeding....which is obviously not a good sign. Will not use, or purchase again.
Love chocolate, but this tastes dry and dull

Did not like this, won`t repurchase.
Sticky feeling during and after handwash, also dries out my hands
Posted by Reviewer2686341 on Nov 17, 2012
This stuff dries out my hands way more than those "SLS-soaps". The hands get sticky during wash, which means I have to use mush more than necessary - and, it really dries out my hands(which was the reason I bouht it, so it wouldnt`t do exactly that). Won`t buy again.
Smells just like the toilet cleanser......
Posted by Reviewer2686341 on Nov 07, 2013
I have a toilet cleanser from Mrs. Meyers(that gives me a headache actually when i wash the toilet) - and this hand soap smells the same. It lingers quite a while - so it just stays and kinda ruins the meals a little bit(wash my hands before eating, smells toliet cleanser instead of the food). Will not buy again, wish they had a fragrance free version :)
