Welcome! I have been shopping on iHerb since January 2014, and have bought tons of products off this site. Shipping to my home country, Singapore, is usually efficient, and I normally receive my orders within a week. Do check back for more reviews, I update regularly as and when I have personally tried my purchases!

Prior to buying this I've always had this misconception that products that truly tackle acne must be expensive, a rarity or not even on the market. So many products have not worked for me in the past, some have unfortunately even worsened my acne. However, this product completely proved me wrong. For only less than 10 bucks you get a box of 90 pads that are super effective against fighting acne as well as last you a while (making your money worth). If you examine its uses on the product listing, the product boasts to "reduce the number of acne pimples and blackheads and allows skin to heal", as well as helps prevent new acne pimples from forming. I have definitely seen a reduction in new pimples. Acne is caused by clogged pores (sebum, dirt, dead skin cells) and acne-causing bacteria, both which can lead to inflammation. These pads work by helping to eliminate those bacteria and unclogging pores, thus treating acne. Usually I see very bad acne breakouts right before my period, but with these pads applied on my skin twice a day, my skin has been surprisingly calm (and my period is due in 2 days - what a game changer this is!). My old scars have also been healing and they are definitely less noticeable! I am so happy I bought this and I have already placed my order for a few more boxes. My only regret is not discovering Stridex earlier, and spending a ton of money on acne treatment masks, oral and topical treatment which have been ineffective at treating my acne. Some more tips - using a comedone remover for a DIY facial helps with acne (if you do it properly), and exfoliation is VERY important (because you're helping your face get rid of buildup of dead skin cells, but use a proper scrub too).
I use 2-3 drops of this mixed with rose hip oil to clear up my acne scars. Also doubles as a facial moisturiser because it has the same properties as facial oil, so your sebaceous glands do not overproduce more oil in its presence. Love this! Thank you Now Foods, and iHerb for carrying this on your site. :-)

I purchased them mainly for my acne and I read that the recommended daily dosage of zinc is capped at 20-40mg not exceeding 50mg, so I bought these and took one every day. My skin did break out less and it is showing signs of improvement. I have oily, super acne-prone skin. Great purchase from Solgar and thank you iHerb for carrying these on your website!

Bought tamanu oil to try out because it apparently helps with acne and scarring. I only use one pump in combination with jojoba as a carrier oil and I apply mostly over my problem areas such as blemishes. Has a strong woody scent when the oil is pumped out but it's not pungent.
It is a self tanner so it makes your skin produce more melanin and appear darker. I am warm toned and this tanner makes the appearance of the tan very artificial because it's too orange. My friend even asked me if I did a fake tan. Might work for cool-toned skin though. I personally would not repurchase!
I use this mixed with Now Foods' jojoba oil as a carrier oil because its concentration is too high to be used alone. I apply on my acne scars and I'm happy to say they are slowly fading day by day. This is so inexpensive, I'd recommend to anyone who's struggling with acne scars like me. Thumbs up to iHerb for carrying this on your site :-)
I usually add one tablespoon to a mug and fill it up with hot water. It has a nice mint taste that masks the chlorophyll taste to some extent. Helps in removing toxins from the body and aiding with digestion. A good buy and addition to my supplements at home. Thumbs up to iHerb for carrying this on your site.
Seasonal item so you can only get it during certain time of the year - I suggest you add this to cart right away if you are a big chocolate lover like me. The milk chocolate is really creamy and would make your tastebuds extremely happy. I love how there are dried peach bits in it as well and the pairing of milk chocolate and peach just tastes heavenly. Thumbs up to Chocolove for such a yummy product, and iHerb for carrying this on your site! :-)
First of all, why would anyone use castor soap on their face? I failed to inspect its ingredients properly before purchasing this. After using this, it just strips my face of all its oil and makes my face feel overly tight, which is a horrible feeling. Soon after I have had worse breakouts. Is messy to dispense as well as one pump usually gets the product everywhere. Would not recommend to anyone with acne.
Good cream shave. A little goes a long way - you only need a thin layer on the area you wish to shave. Doesn't irritate my skin and is easy to apply. Smells nice too. One tube will last a long time since it's really big. Such a value buy. Thumbs up to iHerb for carrying this on your site!
