Hygiene to appreciate, a smell to adore...
I have almost nothing against this great sanitizer. The coconut fragrance is the thing, that really made me buy and try this product and frankly, I am pleasantly surprised what ~company name~ done with it. Very natural, "accurate" (non intrusive) and pleasant. It dries off quickly and doesn't leave strong, unpleasant smell afterwards. During the time I used 2 bottles, I did not observe any unusual dryness of my hands - that is all I can and need to say about it. The purpose of hand sanitizers is very simple, but also quite important in countless cases, but with this this nice touch of Coconut, they've won me over! The only thing I would probably change is the spraying mechanism. - I like "Dr. Bronner's Magic" better - it's a tad more powerful and precise. It's also a bit easier to press.
Balm for the inside and the outside.

As longtime user of this oil, I will share my observations and benefits witnessed after its usage. The size of these 500mg softgels is tiny, as a result they are very easy to swallow and the positive effects I've witnessed speak for themselves. I recommended these to a friend of mine, who had hormonal issues and shortly after she started taking them, she reported, that there was some noticeable improvement. Applied topically, evening primrose helped my son soothing annoying eczema symptoms. Now, I am aware, that with problems such as eczema, it's important to "attack" the issue from the inside out - make lifestyle changes, food choices clean the GI tract and generally find the root problem, but it was VERY helpful with making the skin softer and relieve part of the itchiness. The other container with 1300mg softgels, which NOW offers as well (and iHerb carries it of course) i find appropriate for the times, when I need to apply it topically. Just chew off a little part of the softgel and squeeze the content into the desired place. Works great for me.
250 million years of aging definitely paid off!

I rarely use salt for years now, but some dishes (especially soups) demand it, badly. So when I happen to be preparing such foods, I use this and only this tremendous salt. Since I first bought it and "tested" it, I could NOT go back to regular salt. I mean, sea salt is good and all, but this one  is so much better (and healthier) in my humble opinion. It gives flavor unlike ANY salt I ever tried. THE perfect salt!  Also, big plus for me - it has very low sodium content for a salt product. I find this fact great, because I don't like to give my body too much sodium (potential water retention, high blood pressure, overall worse shape. Although some assume, that if a person is healthy, the kidneys should filter the excess sodium alright, I believe I don't NEED  to give my body unnecessary extra work). Verdict: 250 million years of aging definitely paid off ! :)
Nice addition to the already impressive Dr Tung line !

After Dr Tung's dental floss became my favorite floss and the tongue cleaner is now parts my daily routine, this one is not a disappointment at all. It's hard to say, that this is a "must have", but it helps. After "pairing" it with the toothbrush, it seems to be fresh every time I go to brush my teeth. You know, the toothbrush can become home to quite a few nasty bacteria (the conditions are ideal - moisture, microscopic parts of food etc.) and I can't tell FOR SURE (I didn't go on to actually examine, if the toothbrush became cleaner), but it's definitely reassuring to have. It lasts for months, so financially, it's not much of a money-drain :)
Too mild coffee taste.
You have to put much more than the dosage stated on the container to "fool" yourself, that you are drinking an actual coffee. And even then it's not that convincing. I had better expectations about the taste, but unfortunately this product is not my cup of tea, or in this case - cup of coffee... Last time I tried it mixed with Made Labs' Cafeceps and it was fine, but I don't see much sense in such "mix" apart from experimentation. Another unfortunate fact, is that due to the products, from which this is made - it also contains Gluten, a substance I would like to keep away from my system, when possible. Then again, I am not a coffee snob and I can't provide expert opinions about coffee, but I seriously doubt, that ANY coffee enthusiast will like this one, since the thing, that made the biggest impression on me is the weak flavor. For *my* casual use, this just doesn't fit in. That's all.
Genuine stuff !
I had a hard time finding really authentic paprika in its spice form. Then once more, I turned to iHerb with the hope to find the needed product. This was about a year ago and back then, I believe that they didn't yet carry this one and I was "forced" to buy the paprika powder, that Starwest Botanicals makes. When it arrived I discovered the disappointing fact, that the paprika was actually very spicy. That by itself isn't bad, but it wasn't pointed out on the container and therefore at the listing, and since I can't eat spicy food, it was basically useless to me. Of course I didn't have to throw away new and perfectly good product just because I can't consume it, so I gave it to a friend, that can enjoy it. So my "deprivation" of genuine sweet paprika powder continued till several months later, when I decided to search iHerb to see, if they did update their seasoning inventory. Fortunately, they did and had this one, which I bought shortly and after seasoning several dishes I made - I loved it. Finally! Reputable product, that tastes and feels right.
