I’ve tried several brands from iHerb but they cannot be absorbed by the body, you’ll know it when your urine is yellow. I did some research and am thrilled to find Now Foods uses Longvida. The absorption is great! I’m not sure whether it helps to sooth pain because I didn’t put it into test. The capsule is very tiny and easy to swallow and no funny smell.
Residue: no, cleanses very well. Lather: rich lather, totally enjoyable. Moisture: cannot do without hair conditioner or Dr. Bronner's coconut hair creme, I've dry hair. Scent: smells exactly like sweet or bitter almond (aka Chinese almond), I dislike it because I prefer floral scent. I've added 100% pure essential oils below to the shampoo: peppermint, organic lavender, organic juniper berry and organic cederwood. 45 drops of them couldn't cover the nutty smell but so much better. They need to work on the scent. Thus, deduct 1 star. Price: affordable.

SCENT: Very mild sweetness. MOISTURISING: I always cut my soap into half so that it doesn't melt away in the bathroom. The soap is soft it's easy to cut and without flaking. It's very,very creamy. EXFOLIATING: can't feel the exfoliating at all as the exfoliants are so small and sparse. VERDICT: Leaves much more residue my favourite soap bar, D.E. I probably won't buy it again unless it's down to $1.95 again. It doesn't last as long as my other soaps. Takeaway two stars because of the price and residue.
TEST: My sister and I noticed significantly less hair fall in the shower room when we’re just onto our 1st bottle. We have been repurchasing this shampoo because it really helps to grow out new hair. Her hair stylist was surprise to see her baby hair is growing out when she was only into her second bottle. He said people in their 30s start to loose hair instead! HAIR THINNING: I still have hair thinning but I’ll still use it regardless. I think this is the only natural shampoo that regrows new hair. SCENT: The rosemary smells is luxurious reminiscent that of a spa, it’s very soothing and relaxing. LATHER: Yes, we’re thrilled it does lather but don’t expect thick foam like those chemical laden ones. If you’ve been using real natural shampoo, you’ll know a lot of them don’t suds. OILYNESS: No, it doesn’t leave our scalp and hair oily on subsequent days like Acure, that’s the reason why we switched to Andalou Naturals.
Scent: mild lavender and doesn't linger on the skin after shower. Moisture: very moisturising, leaves skin smooth and won't dry out my dry skin. Residue: no Lather: very creamy Price: affordable and long lasting bar.
USE: I bought it to use as facial wash when I was traveling as I couldn’t find a travel size facial wash. To be exact, I didn’t want to spend $14 on a travel set because I only needed a facial wash. I use serums from other brands of natural products. SMELL: The scent smells like naturally occurred from almond nut, it’s pleasant and not overpowering. MOISTURING: It won’t leave my skin dry and tight, in fact I feel it’s moisturising for my face. VERDICT: It worked so well as a facial cleanser for me. I’m saving this tube for my travels only. I can’t use body soap bar to wash my face because it leaves residue, I’ve tried it with dozens of natural soap bars.
Lather: very creamy, totally enjoyable. Moisture: yes, verymoisturising, lives up to their promise. Scent: mildly scented, doesn't linger on the skin Residue: no Price: affordable, long lasting bar. I'd definitely buy this again, it's a shame iherb has discontinued this item.
TASTE: It’s basically tasteless because it’s meant to snack with dip. Well, I enjoy making guacamole and dip with it. Crispy: Yes, crispy and fresh. Great TEXTURE too. SMELL: No herb is used in making this chip making it the best choice to pair with homemade dip. REMARK: I have also tried their spicy version but dislike it. It's too spicy and just smells plain chili powder, there's no kick in it. Do note that I like Thai, Malay, Nyonya and Indian curry.

MOISTURISING: I was using Solar RX eye butter but it’s inconvenient to have it ship to me. When I discovered iHerb carried oil base eye serum, I jumped on it. It’s very moisturising and suitable to be used under mineral based concealer. It didn’t leave my under-eye streaky. I can’t use Acure Eye Cream Chlorella because it felt like not applying anything and definitely unsuitable for mineral makeup. Although I live in Tropical weather throughout the year, I still love natural oils so much. SCENT: Yes, natural herb soothing scent due to its essential oils. I’ve been using DIY carrier oils and essential oils concoction for many years. I hate artificial perfume. VALUE: It’s well worth the price because of its superior ingredients and I only need very little. But the pump dispenses too much oil and can be a waste. I prefer the pump use by Devita.
Lather: soft and rich, enjoyable. Moisture: must follow with hair conditioner. Scent: smells sweet and pleasant, does linger on the hair. Residue: no Price: affordable but not entirely clean ingredients. Thus deduct 1 star.
