I've not used it that long, but so far seems all good. Oil has a nice almond dessert type of smell, and most importantly, the cap does not leak after squeezing out the oil. (If anyone has use any of the NOW brand carrier oils, you'll know that their packaging ALWAYS leaks after using). Oil goes on quite smoothly and is well absorbed by the skin.
Oil has no smell and moisturises well. Unfortunately as with all Now bottles, it leaks all over the countertop.
Value for money and I've not really fallen that sick since taking it.
I've been taking this since i found out I was pregnant, and even after giving birth as I'm breastfeeding. It's a bit large but you get used to it.
Intensely moisturising, but difficult to apply. Even though instructions state to zap it in the microwave to warm it up, who has the time to do it after getting out of the shower in the middle of winter? However, once the weather warmed up, it was much easier to use. Really great for the soles of the feet.

I personally prefer this oil to the NOW brand, even though it's slightly more expensive. The bottle design doesn't leak as much and its much easier to dispense the oil. I also found Desert Essence to be slightly more fluid and easier to spread and absorb on the skin than NOW. I like to mix in a few drops of Lavender essential oil and use this as a whole body and face moisturiser. It's been great for my more sensitive pregnant skin.
Noodles arrived mostly intact, compared to the somen. But taste was average only. Didn't have enough of a chewy udon bite to it, and tasted a bit floury.
Noodles tasted ok but they were delivered mostly in pieces.
This is a refined coconut oil, with not much coconut smell at all. Unfortunately, it made my 5 month old baby break out in mild eczema, versus the organic one that i normally use. Probably fine for adults.
Smells too sickly and nothing like lemon verbena at all. Only upside is that it's gentle on the hands as doesn't have SLS or the like. I would not buy again.
