can't live without it
Posted by Reviewer2964653 on May 14, 2009
One of the best lipbalms I've tried so far. I like how there's a subtle fragrance (from the linden oil, I think), and most important of all, the natural ingredients that were use to create this product. No matter how dry my lips are, one swipe of this across my lips provides all the moisture they need. I can't think of the day I might have to live w/o this! :) Strongly recommended, esp. considering its low price!

I've been suffering from rhinitis and have recently discovered neti pots, which really help clear my nose (albeit temporarily) without having to involve dangerous chemicals or substances. I much prefer this one over the nasopure/Dr.Hannah's, as this one is softer and so I have better control over the flow of water. also, the angle of this model makes it as comfortable experience as far as neti pots go. Nasopure one gave me that drowning feeling no matter how I repositioned it.
best whitening toothpaste I've ever used!
I've used Colgate's Optic White which didn't change a THING...yet when I was using Jason's, my teeth were INSTANTLY whiter. It's a shame my current toothpaste (Oral-B with novamin) doesn't whiten as much as this one.
one of my favourites

I was previously using Reviva's Vitamin E stick and Weleda's everon lip balm, and have decided to try this out because it was so eyecatching. And I had a feeling, for some reason, that this would become my favourite lip balm. Well I was right! This lip balm has a slightly thicker consistency compared to Reviva's Vitamin E stick, but sinks in better than Weleda's (actually, to be fair, the first Everon lip balm I bought from iherb glided on my lips smoothly, but the second batch I ordered turned out to be kind of creamy...as if it didn't harden properly during creation or something, so I'm really comparing it to the sub-par batch...). For those of you who haven't tried any of the lip balms I've mentioned, the consistency is slightly creamier than a chapstick lip balm, yet sinks in faster and lasts longer. It's one of my must-have's in winter!
good shampoo, but did not help with my scalp problem

I bought this first out of curiosity and later because of the tea tree factor. It suds amazingly well and deep cleanses, but unfortunately still leaves my scalp itchy after I use it. The only shampoo that did the trick was Aveda's Brilliant Shampoo, but I don't wanna go back to commercial brand full of chemicals! (the price is a big issue as well.)
really helped my backne/eczema, but you'll go through this quickly
- helped clear my backne/eczema (I'm not sure which...as I've never checked it with a dermatologist) greatly. Not completely clear though, but helped to clear at least 30 - 40%, as well as reducing backne/eczema scars - I've only had it for about a month but am already 80% through the bottle. I used it every other day, or 3 days in place of my regular shower gel/soap, so it's not really budget friendly - skin became very smooth - my ingrown hair bumps have smoothed a lot, as well as the rough skin on the soles of my feet I'll definitely repurchase if this came in a more budget-friendly price, OR if they increase effectiveness/salicylic acid strength.
quality seems to differ by the batch
The first one I ordered really whitened my teeth, but the second one, not so much. The quality doesn't seem to be consistent. But at any rate, both batches really cleaned my teeth well - I've never used a toothpaste that made my teeth feel so squeaky clean.
Nice, dense and soft brush, but material meh
- glue attaching the body of the brush (to the pink holder) became loose and the body fell out only after a couple of uses - brush itself is nice, dense and soft but not firm enough to be called a kabuki brush I think... (I have a Body Shop kabuki brush and it's much firmer than this one despite the two having more or less the same hair length) - plastic cap doesn't stay put - not travel friendly at all I know this brush is only 10 bucks...but I don't think this is worth the money. Sure I can use superglue to re-attach the body but that still doesn't solve the remaining 2 problems... I might have received a dud, so it might be different for the others.

I had to stop after day 3/ day 4 because I was experiencing the following side effects: I broke out like mad on my face, chest and back. all my life I've had very clear skin but only something wacky/aggressive would cause such a reaction in me. Second, I had an awfully hard time waking - I would waken only to fall asleep again and again..... only after exercising extreme willpower was I able to finally get up, but even then I'd still be extremely tired. Third, I got slightly depressed suddenly, for no reason at all. lastly, I became constipated.....
