great gentle polish
I was worried that this stuff wouldnt be 'scrubby' enough. But, It's just right. Out of the shaker, it looks like a a clay powder. Which, well, is basically what it is. Except that it has very fine pumice granule which act as the major source of scrubby-ness. I mix this with my Philosophy Purity cleanser. It mixes well. The particles dont break down, so it's possible to over-scrub. But, the particles are very fine so I don't think it's as harsh as other mechanical scrubs. Hasn't helped with blackheads on nose. After using, my skin is super soft and subsequent products sink right in. Inoffensive clay smell. Recommend for sensitive skins.
Best butter ever
Nothing makes my skin soft like this stuff. Super concentrated, only use on elbows or feet (with socks on) as over night treatment. Perfect facial treatment mask, too. It's really thick so it doesn't really absorb that well. But makes skin so super soft- unlike any other oil/butter I've ever tried. High quality, unrefined butter, too. Scent is very nutty, not unpleasant. Use it mixed with beeswax to make candles. Gives them a nice, light colour and even burn. Best shea butter on iherb, cant recommend highly enough. Definitely worth having a stock of this at home at all times.
light cream, banishes itches
For the past 3 months I've been on accutane for acne. It has caused by skin to be very dry and itchy. So far, this is the only stuff than banishes itchiness and eliminates those little red, itchy dots on my hands/arms overnight. Texture is quite light, but still moisturizing. Smell is inoffensive. Honestly, I can imagine this would make a great moisturizer for acne-prone skin or post-chemical peels. Works on nieces' eczema, too (they say it doesn't sting, either). Highly recommend this stuff.
Quite moisturising, decent results so far
I've been using the serum version of this DMAE/ALA combination for approx 10months now. Results are pretty decent- my skin does seem quite a bit firmer. Obviously it can't compare with invasive surgery/botox etc, but I've noticed perhaps 5-10% increase in my skin firmness. No change in pore size. No change in blemishes. I was using too many different skin products so I decided to get this in the moisturiser version. Results seem, so far, basically the same as the serum. This cream is quite moisturising, but for drier skins it might not be enough. I'm on accutane at the moment so my skin is super dry and I often need an oil serum in addition. Absorbs very easily and no unpleasant smell. It does come in a jar, so hygiene of the product is not great. So far, the product seems to stay fresh. I recommend this for normal or slightly dry skins. UPDATE: minus 1 star as I find this really isn't very moisturising. After I use it, I get that tight/dry feeling. Have to use another product on top to get moisturised.
made my skin less soft
I usually used just plain green tea as a toner type product. Decided to try something different to help shrink pores. Found this stuff really took all the plump, suppleness out of my skin, made my skin quite rough. Not really 'drying', which wouldve been fine for my oily skin, (was still oily and acne prone) but yeah- no longer soft and plump. Was quite shocked given the ingredients. No doubt this works great for some people, but for me, this just didn't compare to plain ole green tea. Seemed like it stopped other products I used afterwards from fully sinking in, too. Like, my hyaluronic serum (now foods one) was less effective because of this stuff. I stopped using it and my skin went back to normal
Great scent, great cleanser
Cleans washing really well, very gentle and yet still effective. Gardenia scent is pretty true- wonderful for womens clothes. Fans of white floral perfumes will love this stuff.
luxurious, relaxing bath experience
This stuff smells divine,is moisturizing and soothing for my skin. Don't need much product, either. Does cause a little foam and does leave residue in the bath. Great my nieces of have eczema- really helps sooth and clear it up. Highly recommend this stuff- better than bath salts, which I find a bit drying.
fantastic tea infuser
I love this thing. I use this every morning for my tea. So much better than the tea-ball mesh things- I had to crush up my tea leaves to get them to fit it. This thing is so convenient- just toss in tea leaves- the big gua pian and pu'er variety, no problems. Fits all tea mugs easily. The lid makes a perfect saucer for when youre done steeping. Am going to by one for work, too.
perfect for when you have no time for coffee
At work, I never have time to drink coffee. I will make/buy at least 2-3 coffees a day, just for them to go cold on my desk. Then it's no wonder I'm fading out by 2pm. Having a stash of these in my drawer has been a life (work) saver! If you have a busy job, I highly recommend having these pills stashed!
Best stevia available

This stevia is great. I've tried numerous different stevia extracts sold by iherb and this is the only one that doesn't leave a bitter taste. Adds sweetness to dishes without bitterness- basically indistinguishable from sugar. I only use it in baking, not to sweeten tea or coffee. Highly recommended!
