I dabbed a little bit of this cream under my eyes as instructed, and right away the area felt smoother and firmer. Then I noticed that my upper lids were looking crepey, with wrinkles extending diagonally up from the crease line. (I'm almost 62.) I should point out that the instructions don't say anything about using the product on your upper lids, but I decided to try some there on my own responsibility. So I carefully patted a bit of the cream onto this area, without getting really close to the eye, and what can I say? A moment later, the wrinkles were gone! Seriously, I suddenly looked much younger. And all this without any sensation of tightness. I definitely intend to be a steady user.

I used this cream for months before I realized it was irritating my eyes (I thought something in the air was causing the irritation, but it stopped as soon as I stopped using this product). I was putting it on every night at bedtime, and even though I was careful not to get it into my eyes or too close to them, I would wake up every morning with my eyes watering, and they would feel raw and itchy all day. Having used it for months, I can say that it made my skin feel moisturized, but it didn't do anything to improve the crepey skin around my eyes. If anything, it's gotten worse, although in fairness I can't pin the blame for that on the cream. But I add my voice to those who said it made their eyes burn and itch.
This product isn't cheap, but for the amount of EPA and DHA you get in one teaspoon, I think it's worth the price. It has a very mild lemony taste, and no fishy taste comes up later to haunt you. I take it for symptoms of ADHD, and I feel it helps me to think more calmly and clearly. I think it's also helpful for mild depression, as it helps me to think rationally, move ahead, and not let things get me down. It's also certified kosher by the OUץ
This does seem to be a high-quality product, as described by the manufacturer. It has the red color and the flowery-apple-like smell that indicate it was made from fresh St. John's wort at its peak. Unfortunately I didn't find it very helpful, if at all, for the pain in my sciatic nerve, but this probably isn't the product's fault. I haven't found out yet what is the root cause of the pain. It could be that this product just isn't the right remedy in my case.
A fine powder, it dissolves easily and is quickly absorbed, giving all the benefits of vitamin C. I find it helpful for easing hay fever symptoms and other allergic reactions like the swelling of mosquito bites (taken internally). The powder form gives a lot of flexibility in the dosage. It's economical, too, since it's pure ascorbic acid with no fillers. Since it has an acid taste, it can be added to tea instead of lemon. In the summer I like to add half a teaspoon or more to a pitcher of iced tea and drink several cups through the day so the dosage is spread out. It can also be used as a rooting powder for plant cuttings.
