Move Over Dr. Perricone!
Posted by Reviewer2934936 on Apr 15, 2012
I have compared the ingredients with many other high end skin care products, including Dr. Perricone's. Since I disagree with using chemicals and/or fragrance in my products, I eliminated Dr. P's and many others. I wanted a product that contained only high quality, natural, and effective ingredients. This is a power-packed serum that goes on light and smooth and has a creamy texture at first that sinks in after a few minutes. I've been using it for several months now and can see a nice improvement in my skin texture, especially under the eyes where I had some sun damage. The "crinkled" look has improved and has better plumpness, elasticity and hydration. That's saying alot since I am going on 60 and used to sunbathe! I also use a tiny amount of the Shea Butter Brulee (which is a GREAT body cream, BTW) since it's still winter, but will probably only need the serum during the summer. I will definitely keep on buying this one!
Relaxing and Delicious

I have tried many Kava preparations over the past few years. Some worked, and some didn't. This one is right up there with the best ones I tried, plus, it has a wonderful taste. I use 3 tsp. and add a little stevia and it's really wonderful. It seemed expensive to me until I realized it was no more than the awful tasting tincture I was buying. This is a KEEPER!
Great Flavor and Peanut Oil Free!

I've tried many cashews before finding these and think they have the best flavor of any. We've bought them month after month and have had just a couple of times when they didn't taste right, but iHerb was great about taking the return. My other reason for using this brand is because they are a "Peanut Free" facility. My husband was not able to have cashews all his life with his peanut allergy, since many cashews are roasted in peanut oil. He loves these nuts and can't get enough of them. However, I think the price is a bit high. But I will keep buying them.

I am a fan of Spry Mints and have been waiting and waiting for them to come out with a Cinnamon flavor. It was worth the wait! These mints have just the right amount of cinnamon. I've had other brands that were very weak in flavor, but these do not disappoint. I will be buying them every month.
Flavor Not For Me

I had high hopes for this protein drink. I usually use Jarrow Whey and like the flavor, even though it's a "light chocolate", to this Ghirardelli dark chocolate lover. But, the Neocell chocolate flavor is almost non existent to me. So I tried adding a spoon of Hershey Cocoa and some Xylitol. It still had a certain bitter aftertaste that I don't like. However, the consistency is nice, if you don't mind that flavor. My husband seems to like it just fine. But then, he likes brussel sprouts!
From Sceptic To Believer!

I rarely write reviews, but had to give an endorsement for this product. After only a couple of weeks I can truly see a difference in my lip volume. I've only used it twice a day, so I imagine 3 x day would be even better. I let it soak in for about 10-15 min. then apply Now Vit. E Extra Strength Oil over it as a gloss. My lips have more color and are noticeably plumper. I especially love the minty tingle it gives. Very happy with this and am buying a second tube.

The smell is actually very light and nice-more like cocoa butter than anything else. I really like the consistency-it's rich, yet airy and lightweight-almost like it's whipped. Leaves a nice smooth feel to my skin without feeling greasy. Not sure if the long term benefits will prove that it's helping my skin, but I think it's worth a try, since the ingredients are so good.
My all time favorite chocolate is Ghirardelli, especially the 60% cacao. This is very similar with a bit more sugar. Very yummy and great chocolate taste. I've tried a great many dark chocolates and think these 2 brands are the BEST!
I love the ingredients in this lotion, and the fact that there are no unnecessary ones added. It feels very pure and good for my skin. It's creamy and rich but seems to be absorbed quickly with no stickiness or oiliness. I even use it under my eyes. I love it for the entire body.
Lack of Flavor
I gave these cashews 2 stars simply because they seem fresh. However, for some reason there is not very much flavor to them. I don't know if it's because of the safflower oil, or due to the cashews themselves. If you close your eyes and eat them, you would not be able to tell what type of nut you are eating. I won't buy again. Giving the rest of my bag away. Yumnuts are much better.

My husband and I have both tried this several times when we felt tired and it helped. We only tried 4 or 5 squirts one time and it gives a little boost for at least an hour, or more. We also like to use Yerba Mate Instant Tea and the tablets rather than drink coffee. Works for us. Also has a pleasant spearmint aroma.
Keeps Me Going!
My husband and I have used this product for years and love it. We take it straight off the spoon, and I confess, I take more than a teaspoon at a time! I hold it in my mouth for a minute, then swallow and follow up with some water. It gives a little burst of energy and mental clarity that I need when first waking up. And if I'm dragging during the day, it helps with that also. I just wish they would go back to the 8 oz. bottles, since we use so much of it. I highly recommend!
