Underestimated Stuff

Posted on Feb 27, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

This is indicated for joint pains but I got this as a general-purpose travel anti-toxin supplement. Great for traveller's stomach/ digestive ailments, mouth ulcers, kills intestinal parasites and boosts immune system. And great to use the powder to disinfect or stop bleeding on small cuts. Wonder why there aren't more brands making them in capsules. This one is good enough. Will buy this again when I run out.

Good value and clean

Posted on Jan 21, 2014

4 people found the following review helpful

Color is accurately represented by product pic shown, with a tad more pastel opaqueness. Pastel peach with orange overtone. Will give natural matte look on fair to medium skin tone with light/medium color lips. Darker tone skin/ lips will get a fluorescent peach "matte highlight" result. Texture is a good balance between smooth enough glide and not so moist that it fades quickly. Staying power is medium. Overall this liner is good value for its price and toxin/ dye-free cleanness. I'm happy with it and will buy again.

Good enouogh family cabinet basic

Posted on Jan 08, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

I'm an essential oil collector. This is not the top range nor best smelling pure wintergreen oil. But pure, good value and effective enough nonetheless. I use it diluted 3:1 with olive/coconut base oil to manage headache PMS muscle ache or rashes. Highly effective pain killer, better and safer than aspirin/salicylate, which is the synthetic wannabe clone of wintergreen. Do not use it neat on skin - will burn. Safer dilution is 4:1 onwards.

Kind to skin

Posted on Mar 18, 2015

2 people found the following review helpful

Medium-high coverage and moderately moisturizing. Enough to blend out pores and pimple marks. Spreadable, even if it dries fast. Blends in nicely on my tropical Asian skin tone. Average Japanese/ Korean/ Caucasian will find Light/medium slightly on the tanned side. I used it both in Singapore and in travels to extreme cold/hot countries. Surprisingly it doesn't turn my face into an oil rig despite the moisturizing quality and a natural looking dewy finish. For whole day wear, just some powdering around the nose and forehead is sufficient on my hyper-oily skin type. Doesn't have weird smell even without fragrance, just subtle "basic" kaolin clay kind of scent. I like healthy, clean, harsh-chemical-free product like this. Hope there will be more of this organic wear line. Buying another tube to stock up. Will recommend this to those with sensitive/ oily skin, or those looking for beauty without long term harm.

Don't Change The Formula Please

Posted on Mar 16, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Ideal grain size, good rinse-ability. Skin feels clean yet moisturized after. I use it to wash off thicker makeup. Feel gentle, smells pleasant enough, skin doesn't turn into oil rig soon after as with other brand of scrubs. Hope they won't change the natural and nutritious formula.

Pleasant enough taste

Posted on Jan 14, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Its important to me supplement tablets taste ok so I will take them more regularly. This brand is good, and price point is right, the additives are not weird nor nasty, and these also taste like the yummy yeast powder I bought for seasoning/ shake. I use them like a multi-vit with immune-boosting power, definitely take extra when travelling or during flu season. Underestimated stuff.

Heavenly stuff

Posted on Feb 27, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

When I'm from the ghees tend to be sourced from India, and tend to have an extra spicy note for whatever reasons. Fine for cooking and baking but not on toasts. Purity Farms ghee, however, tastes so fresh and fragrant and pure and wholesome I will eat it straight like butter! I hope they keep up their standards. Will buy this again for sure.

Improves my oily skin condition

Posted on Jan 05, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

3-NM is typical neutral-fair Japanese Korean Chinese tone, too fair for my tropical-medium-fair skin tone. I have tried so many brands of foundations and BB creams, from Shiseidos to Revlons to Silkgirls. None did calm down my combination zits-prone skin. Oil rig face soon after, exacerbated by urban air and tropical heat and humidity. I finally found in Larenim sufficient coverage and oil control. Still not 100% pore-diminishing fine-ness but good enough overall. My fringe no longer stick to my oily forehead an hour after. My nose remains shine-free for half a day. The natural scent is also very pleasant, and reassuring, as it reminds me that this powder will not destroy my skin. My skin has never been so calm and under-reactive. This shade is a tad lighter than expected for me, will look for 4-NM but it seems iHerb doesn't carry it. I still have a too-dark 4-WM so I overlay it to balance out the whiteness.

Tasty Healthy

Posted on Jan 14, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

I've been buying this brand. Price is better than other palm sugar on iherb. Tastes authentic, with some coconuty overtone. Use it in my coffee, tea, baking, even cooking. Color is deep and rich. Bits of dark colored residue plant parts may float in my latte as one would expect of natural/organic/unrefined sugars so no big deal. Generally speaking the more brownness a "natural sugar" has, the more mineral content, and the less sweetening effect. So need to put 50% more volume than brown sugar to get same sweetness. Has other health benefits too, some South East Asians use this 'plant flower juice' as a cough syrup.

Buildable layers, high sheen

Posted on Jan 08, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

I'm tropical Asian medium. More large glitter than its medium warm red pigment. Gives an overall sparkliness (not dewy glow) with big fluffy brush, which I use to balance out too-fair or too-matte foundation. Normal dense brush may produce a high sheen burnt copper red effect. If you're after a matte blush, or coutour, this could be too shiny.

Mid-Pale Violet

Posted on Jan 14, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Shade is close enough to the pic, a tad colder/bluer, with slightly higher shine than pic so will look lighter with light application. Repeated strokes will produce deeper violet shade closer to pic presented. Quite spreadable. Larenim needs to improve their cheap and flimsy packaging - the plastic lid is tedious to twist open and close, esp when the powder will only add more friction to the lid twisting with every use. E.L.F does a better job at packaging their mineral range and they're cheaper.

Nice smooth texture, may not be dark/tan enough for most tan Asians

Posted on Jun 18, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Has a dewy glow effect, definitely not matte. It does feel moisturizing, medium coverage, spreads easily enough with a dense foundation brush. Still, oily skin like mine will shine and cake after a few hours. The supposed pore-shrinking effect is relative. Those with small pores will get smoother highlight result, but those with medium pores like mine will have pores emphasized, typical of glow sheen foundation. The medium-peach color is ideal for typical Chinese Singaporeans or tanned Japanese, but may be too light for medium-tan tropical Asians. I use a under layer of pure mineral to tone down the sheen, delay oil output, and balance the color.
