Love the carrot bits!
This is one of the better flapjacked mixes - the spice flavouring is very fragrant without seeming artificial, and the carrot bits give the pancakes additional texture. Excellent!
Just get one bag to try it, you won't regret it. And that recipe on the back is pretty awesome.
Does its job!
It cleans without drying out my face, and has no smell! A small amount, frothed up with some water in my hands, is enough for washing - so I expect this bottle to last me a long time. Thumbs up!
Pretty good quality
For non organic, non toasted steel cut oats, I've tried Bob's, Now Foods, and McCann's. Funnily, the former two do it better than the Irish, with Now Foods edging Bob's out slightly as Bob's steel cut oats tends to come with a bit of ground oat dust towards the bottom of the package. Taste wise I don't recall a difference and as Bob's is a tad cheaper I tend to buy Bob's.
Feels very herbal and clean
It's a lovely dark green colour and smells herbal in a nice way, lots of rough bits to exfoliate with, so very gentle cleansing motions would suffice!
Seems to do its job, but leaves a white cast
I'm a Chinese Singaporean living in a sunny tropical city. I've been using this for about three weeks, and while I do see that my freckles don't seem to be increasing in number or colour (in fact they appear to be going in the other direction), my key issue is that the lotion leaves a noticeable white cast on my skin. It also seems to be making my T zone rather unhappy, even though it is supposed to be non-comedogenic. Strangely, though, despite the white cast, the lotion does not feel as greasy as other moisturizing sunscreens that I have used. A little goes a long way with this lotion, so it'll last me many months yet. Edit (3 months later): Ok, I've given up using this on my face, to avoid looking like a shining beacon...
I gleam in a most unflattering manner after putting this on, and that's even before I start sweating. It also got rather watery - not sure if it's because of the heat - so it was easy to spread (sometimes TOO easy).
Does not taste like green tea
You get what you pay for, and in this case, you're paying to brew paper in hot water, because that's what it tastes like and looks like (a dull brown colour, no hint of green at all). Do not buy this unless you like drinking cardboard flavoured tea.
Not super glossy, and rather sticky
Smells good, but that's the only nice thing I can say about it - it's not super glossy, and it's quite sticky and hard to spread / lip-smack evenly across my lips... Not recommended.
