In recent years, interest in my own well being has grown. I am learning how important I am. I am learning how important it is to care for myself and not depend on others. I am learning about how there is so much chemicals out there that harm us, slowly but surely. I am learning that doctors have a hard time keeping up with current news and they are not as well informed as we think they are. As Hippocrates once said "If you are not your own doctor, you are a fool." I am learning how to be my own doctor. I am learning a lot. iherb is a good source of chemical free products with a good range and good price point. Depending on how fussy you are though, do look through the list of ingredients of the products as some still contain harmful chemicals. I choose products that are completely free of any chemicals that have even the slightest indication of being harmful.

Not for me

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

When the package arrived, the cap of this item had come off and it was leaking. I think the change of weather (from US to singapore) caused the stick to melt. It continued to leak for a few more days. The deodorant does not work for me at all. The application is good and non sticky. The scent is nice but does not last and made me smellier as the day goes on. I tried it for sometime until my partner told me he could smell my odour from a distance. I have stopped using this product. I do not recommended it for sweaty people living with hot and high humidity weather.

lovely lotion

Posted on Nov 29, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

the lotion is watery and you only need a little bit. it absorbs quickly and there is no sticky feeling. it is good for humid weather. the scent is really nice. it is not too strong and it does gently fade off after a while leaving you silky and softly scented... just nice, i think. i use this cream before bed. for first time buyers, get $10 of your purchase when you spend $40 or more. just type in coupon code RVB843 at check out.

LOVE this lotion

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This lotion is of a fairly thick consistency, almost like a cream. It absorbs really fast so you need to apply a small area at a time. All fragrance free products have a smell to it, albeit very faint. This fragrance free smell is very nice! It is very light and fresh with a tinge of a citrus like scent. There is no sticky feeling after application but you can still feel the lotion on you. As it gets fully absorbed, my skin feels softer! Great for humid weather. I strongly recommend this cream. I will try out the other scents. I saw this brand of lotion in my country going for sale at S$23 (US$19)! Get it here!

Recommended toothpaste

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This is the first time I'm trying a non flouride toothpaste. This toothpaste is not sweet at all. That takes a little getting used to. The breath does seem to stay fresher for longer. I did not notice if my teeth have gone whiter. I like this toothpaste as it does not foam so much and I feel like I do get a better clean of my teeth.

Good shampoo

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I was pleasantly surprised that the shampoo foamed so much as it contains no sls. The scent is nice and mild. It also feels good on my hair. You do not have to use so much. Highly recommended.

Conditioner to match shampoo

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I like using the matching conditioner after shampooing. This conditioner is also mildly scented with that berry smell. Both shampoo and conditioner have surprised me because they are just like your chemical laden products but better because they are completely chemical free! I highly recommend this brand.

Scent is really like Chai

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I love Desert Essence lotions - i love the texture, the absorption rate and the feeling after. It does not make you feel sticky in humid weather. I don't really fancy this scent because it is more chai than vanilla - I realise i don't like food scents as much as I do floral or fruity scents. Good thing is the scent is not strong or overpowering. I like that.

Simple body wash

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

The scent is pleasant and light, with a tinge of a citrus like smell. It foams a little and spreads on the body easily. There is no dry feeling after and I felt cleaned. Recommended.

Citrus indeed!

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

If you love citrus scents, buy this. It is to citrusy for my liking. It smells like I peeled a thousand citrus fruits! In that sense, I guess it is good. It also does have some lasting power and eliminates bad odour.

smells great!

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

expect a floral sweet scent. it did not last as long as some of the other reviewers said. perhaps because the door and windows of my apartment are usually open. even so, money well spent. i will try the other products.

Not an ideal bar of soap

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I expected the scent to be fresher than the aloe vera one, but they smelt the same. There is no dry feeling after using the soap and it lasts quite long. But when the soap is finishing, it breaks into bits and gets quite difficult to use. A lot of soap gets wasted at the end.

I expected the scent to be fresher, but it is a little dull. There is no dry feeling after using the soap and it lasts quite long. But when the soap is finishing, it breaks into bits and gets quite difficult to use. A lot of soap gets wasted at the end.
