My review and advice:

Posted on Feb 20, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Beeing a customer and having bought and tried it, here's my verdict requested by iHerb: -I strongly advice persons with sensitive or normal skin to buy another stick amongst iHerbs wide selection of concealers and sticks. Here's reason why: -Comedogenic simply refers to ingredients that clog your pores. A closer look at the ingredients list for this product reveals a lot of Isopropyl lanolate. On the comedogenics scale, where 0 is non-comedogenic and 5 is absolutely comedogenic, the ingredient Isopropyl lanolate is rated a 5 (absolutely comedogenic). Reading on and we find ingredient Propylene glycol. This is the first stick ever I've found with this ingredient. Propylene glycol is known to cause eye irritation, skin irritation and drying of the skins natural moisture (amongst others). The material safety data sheet (MSDS) warns users (to avoid) skin contact with propylene glycol, as this is a strong skin irritant, can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage in sensitive individuals. Reading further on: ethylhexyl palmitate, also a widely known top-5 comedogenic ingredient. I could go further on but I'm actually embarrased on behalf of the manufacturer. Three harmful ingredients is enough to avoid this product. I don't know what the manufacturer means by the claim - Dermatologist recommended - it simply seems taken out of the blue. No referral to any kind of sources etc. Anyone who searches long enough will find a dermatologist willing to recommend this product, but most dermatologists won't. I strongly advice anyone with normal to sensitive skin to go for another cover stick instead, according to the list of comedogenic ingredients in this product. Please rate if this info was of any help, thank you.

A potent product. It works!

Scientific studies behind DMAE (Google) supports the claims the manufacturer makes on this jar of 100 caps/250mg. I've noticed that many alternative medications or preparations from the manufacturers lack a description on the jar for what it's actually supposed to do. The manufacturers simply rely on positive reviews or common beliefs amongst people, without any proper evidence presented. As everybody know, most natural products never can (can never) be as potent as a personalized medicine, simply because school medicine require years of scientific research, millions of $ and tons of studies and scientific evidences before beeing used as treatment for a long row of serious/dangerous medical conditions or ailments. But (!) when it comes to DMAE (and some vitamines, proteines of various forms, antioxidants etc) I feel that it (dmae) do have an effect, both for physical appearence overall, as well as on a psychological level. When I began taking this DMAE supplement I started with a dose of 250 mg/a day with the knowledge that it would take at least 2-3 weeks before noticing any effect. And guess what?! After about two weeks I actually began to feel a difference! :-) Not from one day to another of course, but never the less; -a kind of slow, subtile change. A subtile change in the way I feel and even think, remember and quickly pickup a lost conversation tread again. I feel glad, more happy in a way I've never done before. Happier and more positive (that beeing said, I always a positive, giving person to others :) More talkative/conversational and laughs a lot more. :) Plus a less self conscious. Little things that was really important before is not as important today. Also seem to recall a thought/important thing-to-do I happened to forgot just minutes before. But all of this is of course not happening over night and I really want everybody to be aware of this when starting taking this supplement. Slowly, slowly the brain adapts to the higher level of DMEA and something subtile happens. This is at least my genuine experience of taking 250 mg DMAE on a daily basis for about 6-7 weeks (by now) as a little experiment. I've also noticed that some lack of sleep the night before doesn't show as easily. So to sum it up; DMEA do have a positive effect on me and I will continue to use it for the rest of my life I think. Next time I run out of it I will buy the high quality brand "Source Naturals" instead. I happened to see that it has an extremely good value (better) for almost the same price. The brand has around 350 mg in just one pill (a day), which I think is the best for most people - and very convenient in the long run! By the way, DMEA is not a pricey main ingredient. Worth every cent spent, especially as it works so good. So far, no negative effects or aspects at all. With this review I hope I've at least helped someone.

A very non-firming cream for your eyes

A very non-firming cream for your eyes. This eyecream was redirected from my bathroom (and eyeareas) to the trashcan with a slam! -It´s a cream only for persons with very non-sensitive facial skin (and I know what I´m talking about). The eyearea lost some of it´s firmness after just two days of using it. Itching pimples started to develop and I got larger bags under my eyes. I´m sorry but no... I can´t recommend it to anyone.

Two days and it was enough

Unfortenately one of the worst facecreams I´ve tryed. Two days and it was enough for me to stop continue using it. -I got little itching pimples from it after just a day and my skin actually lost a little bit of it´s firmness, compared to when I use my regular facecream. I know what I talk about when it comes to facecreams, since I´ve used many, many... This one was ordered just for fun, since the price is very low. A low price is not always equal with bad qual - but in this case it was for sure. :) I´m sorry, but I can´t recommend this facecream for anyone unless you have a very non-sensitive facial skin.

...price is great but to be honest, not the best product if wanting to avoid pimples etc. Rose hip seed oil is known to cause acne or pimples on sensitive skin, so please take that into concideration if wanting to treat your facial skin. Still a quality product.

Would like to buy, but how does one know...

...how does one know if Medium tint is dark - or Light Medium is too light? Is there a big difference between the two..? A sample picture of the color would make ordering much easier. Now it's like a russian roulette picking the right color...

This is value for money. Especially if having stiff joints in the morning or from day to day. The added chondroitin sulfate is important for the hyaluronic acid to do it's job efficient. The HA acid also helps moisturise the face and body skin from within the body. Great product and a very affordable price for 180 capsules. 2 caps a day and it will last three monts. The long term effects for the skin (and rest of the body) can't be underestimated. A quality product.

A genuine skin care product!

Very important if wanting a glowing skin with less wrinkles. Skin care is not only about using a skin cream morning and evening. Adding collagen to your daily routine will further assist your skin in the fight against wrinkles, sun damages etc from within too, not only from the outer layers of the skin. Combined with water and healthy food you'll se fast results. Especially after having done a chemical peeling. Makes the skin soft and helps rebuild the skin. Dissolve a scoop of collagen in the morning. A glass of fresh water or some natural, sugarfree and healthy juice - and off you go. The positive effects on your skin, joints etc will come already within a week. The price is great, will def continue to buy this.

Be aware - in a positive way though. This is a very potent product, stimulating and are very important for hair growth amongst other benefits. 5000 mcg is perfect (in other words just one a day) and the capsules are very small and easy to swallow. Great price and very high quality.

Exellent price for blended vitamin E 400

Posted on Jun 27, 2011

1 person found the following review helpful

Blended sort of vitamin E in 400IU (!) is the best, since the two sorts of vitamin E are synergistic. Helps to protect the skin from wrinkles and sun damage. I use 400 IU as an anti-oxidant, all body cell protection. Inside of the skin is as/almost more important as/than the outside. I take one a day til my breakfast with a slurp of coffee. Very good price indeed.
