Very Thick Sunscreen; Caused Some Skin Problems
I purchased this product when I was looking for a more natural sunscreen. I had previously used MyChelle's "Sun Shield" which worked quiet well, but was somewhat expensive. When I first tried this product, I found it to be very thick in consistency. I could really feel the product on my skin and especially on my face. I also noticed that my skin broke out when using the product on my face. It seems to create a thick barrier on your face which doesn't allow your skin to breathe properly. I will probably use this product on my arms and body, but I wouldn't use again on my face and I won't reorder once the product is gone.
Nice Red Lentils for Indian Dishes
I purchased these lentils to be used in indian dishes and for lentil soup. The lentils were fresh and tasted quite good when cooked in soup or with rice and spices. I trust that Bob's Red Mill is a quality brand. If I'm looking for red lentils, I will certainly buy this product again.
Nice for Apple Pie or Cider
This is a nice blend of cinammon, nutmeg, and ginger, 3 anti-inflammatory herbs that also happen to taste great in drinks or in baked goods. You can also use this product in ciders, pancakes, waffles, or cookies. It's a nice, warming blend that works in many different recipes.
Paprika, Just what you Expect
I bought this product to add to rice and bean dishes. The product is very fresh and vibrant. It has a strong red color and delicate, spicy flavor. I don't need to use too much of the paprika in dishes, so I expect this jar to last a long time. A great value and good product to add to your spice cabinet.
Corny, I know, but this product makes me think of those ridiculous chia pet commercials. The product itself is high quality, as I have come to expect from Bob's Red Mill. The seeds were fresh and lasted several months in my refrigeration. With all of Chia's health benefits, from it's Omega 3 profile, to fiber, to vitamins, it is truly one of the powerhouse superfoods available today. I would order this product again and enjoy in smoothies or oatmeal.
Good Natural Toothpaste, Refreshing
Posted by wholefoods on Oct 28, 2012
I purchased this product to try a different toothpaste from Jason Natural. I prefer this type to the peppermint Powersmile. This toothpaste is a clear gel that is quite light. I experienced some problems with irritation and sensitivity with other natural toothpastes. This product doesn't irritate my teeth and leaves me with a cool taste in my mouth. It seems to work well as an overall toothpaste, although I haven't noticed any whitening effects. I will purchase again.
Smooth Lip Balm, Good Taste
I got this product for free. I'm not especially interested in lip balm flavor, but this one seems to be pretty good. The vanilla flavor is subtle and my lips stay moisturised during the day. As for whether this is "completely kissable", I'll leave review of that item to others. Solid lip balm and recommended for the price.
Good Quality Vanilla for Baking
This product was used in baking items. It's a nice quality vanilla for use in cookies and other baked goods items.
Seems to be Improving Anemia
Posted by wholefoods on Mar 27, 2012
After taking this for about a month, I've noticed I don't feel as weak and run down as I did before. Having a mostly vegan diet, I find this helpful as a supplement to make sure I'm getting the iron I need. Also, I haven't noticed any problems with digestion or taste.
Comfortable Ear Plugs for All Occasions
If you need earplugs for noisy neighbors, construction, riding the bus, or any other occasion, these are great ones to choose. They feel soft in your ears and shut out 60-70% of the noise in your environment, depending on the volume. I use these in my apartment room to shut out the noise from my neighbors and they work very well for that purpose. Highly recommended.
Seems to Be a Good Calcium Product for the Price
I have used several types of calcium to support my bone healthy being someone who doesn't use dairy products. This product offers you 47 servings for $5, which is a pretty good price as far as calcium supplements go. I will need to take this product for some time before deciding about the quality compared to others. I have heard good things about coral calcium, so I'll give it a try and see how it stacks up to MCHC and others.
Switched from NOW Spirulina; Great Quality True Hawaiian Spirulina
As I noted in my review of NOW Brand's Spirulina Powder, I decided to switch to this product after learning that NOW's Spirulina Powder, which was previously "100% Natural Hawaiian Spirulina", was switched to another type of Spirulina, not of Hawaiian origin. This product is likely the same Hawaiian Spirulina previously sourced also by NOW. From all the green foods products I have tried, Hawaiian Spirulina is by far one of the best. Compared to other Spirulina powders, this product is rich, vibrant, and actually quite refreshing tasting. The level of freshness is much higher than with other, cheaper Spirulina products. I take 30 grams of this Spirulina per day, divided into two 15 gram doses at breakfast and before bed. I do think it is helpful to take significantly more than the recommended dose to really notice the effects. I take this product along with Jarrow Formula's Chlorella. Since beginning to take this product, I have noticed a dramatic change in my energy level, ability to recover from strenuous exercise, increased ability to concentrate, and an overall sense of internal strength and well-being. I don't attribute miraculous effects to this product, but I do think the high levels of easily digestible protein, iron, vitamins, chlorophyll, gamma linolenic acid, and other properties make this product truly one of the most powerful and concentrated foods you can buy. An added benefit is that I haven't needed to take multi-vitamins since using this product, which saves money. I will continue to take this product daily and enjoy all the health benefits.
