People who are saying 'It has good coverage for a BB cream' are only talking about Western BBs, which are glorified tinted moisturizers. Korean and most Asian BB's have way more coverage, and I'd recommend them over this -- such as Missha, Skinfood, Holika or Etude House (which iHerb sells!). That said, this is better than most Western BB creams (with the exception of Garnier's BB imo, which is very good). It has moderate coverage, but I'd only recommend this for dry skin. If you have oily skin, or even combination, this will make you like an oil slick. Combination skin might get away with it, but you will need to set it with powder or a matte spray. I have dry skin, and this is perhaps a bit TOO dewy, even for me. However, it does give a pretty, mid-covered finish, but it can feel quite tacky. I do like it for a kind of 'natural' look, as it's very good for a no-makeup look. That said, it does separate, and needs to be shaken quite thoroughly. I like it though, and I think its one of the better Western BB creams out there.
So this is great quality for the price. It is a tad tacky at first, but not sticky, as it dries to semi-mate. The shade is amazing and almost universally flattering. The color pay off is good, but on the plus side, it looks super natural. It works best with a no-makeup-makeup look. Note: When it is very hot, it did separate a bit for me, and turn a bit oily, but it still works great.
Firstly, the taste is kind of powdery and artificial. It reminds me of protein powder chocolate. The mint doesn't make it taste any better. It is palatable though, and on the plus side it melts super quickly in the mouth and absolutely works. It takes about 20 minutes for it to kick in. Keep in mind, it won't cure insommnia if you wake up during your sleep a lot, but it will make you drowsy and help you fall asleep. I like to use it when I know I need to sleep and am a bit restless. the night before.
These tablets are very big, but tasteless so not too bad to swallow. But if you're someone that struggles with big tablets, then get Source Naturals other Lysine, in capsules. They are all very good quality, they are easy to digest and swallow, and they seemed to make a marked difference in my immunity, especially prevention of cold sores. Note, to actively get rid of a cold sore infection that was in full force, I had to up the dosage significantly, to about 4-6 capsules daily, for about 2 days. Otherwise, 1-2 per day is perfect for prevention. I also felt it has helped my body and joints, and I feel less pain too.
This is actually quite heavily pigmented, and easily buildable. It's a true rose pink, and looks quite natural, but doesn't always suit my skin (I suffer from rosacea, so it can sometimes look like that). It is initially tacky, but dries to a semi-matte finish that isn't sticky at all. After a few months of owning it, it did separate for me a bit and get oily though, however, it still works fine, and still dries matte so no complaints here.

I wasn't expecting much from these, thinking that they'd be a lot like chewy coconut flakes with a heap of cocoa powder. Not so. These are great! They are quite crunchy, the cacao doesn't transfer to your hands, and the pinch of salt adds an uplift to the overall flavor that brings out the best in the toasted coconut. They are delicious and addictive and I thoroughly enjoyed them.
The mirror compact especially is really handy. It's nice and small and slim and great for travel. The emery board is so-so, and the shower cap is actually pretty good.
I use this cosmetically, not to eat, but I have oiled pulled with it (It's very good) and it tastes and smells fantastic. I would definitely consider using it for cooking. So, for me personally, Coconut oil doesn't work fantastic for me as a moisturizer (I oddly find it a bit drying after a while, but I have odd skin issues) so I mostly use this for my hair, and to soothe any skin irritation, and it works really well. It worked for me when I had itchiness from eczema, and also when I had a yeast infection. It gave me instant relief, and has been much better than other brands I have tried.
I have been using Fit & Fresh for years, and had the old model lunch box which was similar, and still very good. This is even better. It's pretty small, but it's amazing how much you can fit in it. The plastic is lightweight but nice and sturdy and the lids are leak-resistant (not 100% leak proof, but they do a good job). I don't use the ice-pack divider part, but it is really handy if you do. This lunchbox in particular is perfect if your lunch is mostly leftovers, and you want to add a bread roll or piece of fruit or veg on the side. It's not great for big sandwiches, (if you did you'd need to cut it in half to make it fit, which is ok). It also isn't great for salads, but I recommend the other salad lunch box set if that's more your style.
I can't comment on how nice this is hot because I used it only to make ice tea. But for ice tea, it is wonderful. It smells heavenly, like blueberries, and has a wonderful fruity taste with almost blackcurrant undertones. It's tangy, but not overly so. It is my favorite tea to use for ice tea, and works especially well with strawberry tea too. Would recommend.
