I am a Canadian expat living in Singapore. I have a busy, traveling husband, three young schedule-packed children (one with gluten and other food sensitivities) and a high-maintenance dog. I try to streamline my hectic life, so that I have a better chance of feeling younger next year. iHerb is a time saver and is often more cost effective for international customers. Why I buy from iHerb - I stood, iPhone in hand, in the aisle of my favorite health food store, comparing shelf prices with the same items on iHerb. I couldn't help feeling guilty about this behavior but, I had already driven to two different stores trying to find something AND payed for gas AND payed ERP (highway fees) AND payed parking fees (twice) AND I found it cheaper on iHerb including shipping and currency conversion. I shop on iHerb 1) to save time 2) to save money 3) to create joy...when the doorbell rings and the box arrives all the kids love to dig in and see their treats.

This is a great brush for cutting your drying time in half but it's only part of the procedure to dry your frizzy hair to straight. To perfect the look to make FRIZZY HAIR to STRAIGHT you need multiple types of brushes. There is no way that I can achieve a straight, sleek look with just one brush. I use a range of brushes from EcoTools (all on iHerb) for different hair styles. ***For straight hair, (1) brush wet hair with EcoTools wide Detangler brush (2) dry with EcoTools Ultimate Air Dryer Brush until almost dry - it cuts your drying time in half (3) switch to EcoTools Full Volume brush (wide or thin depending on your hair) and complete the drying process by rolling the hair and pulling it straight (4) "critical" finish with the EcoTools Smoother brush on dry hair this makes a big difference (5) finish with WELEDA rosemary hair conditioner 1-2 drops (also in iHerb).

I like the scent a lot, it smells like orange creamsicle but my three kids really disagree. They don't like the scent and they find it's too thick and doesn't breathe well because of this thick consistency it feels heavy on their skin especially in the humidity (we live in Singapore) and makes them feel hotter and more uncomfortable. I have observed perspiration balls on top of the cream a bit, so it might feel like the heat is trapped under the cream. I really don't mind this cream personally but I also don't put on as much cream as I enforce on my kids, so perhaps their feedback is relevant to consider if you live in humid country like us. I think if you live in a dry place, it might feel moisturizing and soothing. If you found my review of this product helpful to you or for your family, please click the "YES" button.

Much better than the liquid version because I always end up throwing the liquid away as it expires within a month after opening. It took me ages to figure out the little secret to opening up the blister back. You CAN'T pop it open like you might be accustom to with other blister packs. You MUST peel the foil from the corner and it's very simple otherwise, you might go crazy trying the pop method. Some reviewers have already lost the plot and rated the product poorly due to difficult opening. There is no problem with the opening if you peel.

My daughter has ADHD. It's a very difficult decision but we have chosen not to put her on medication. We try to manage her symptoms through diet and high intensity exercise - gymnastics and swimming. Her diet is largely a mix and struggle but we try to stick to gluten free etc. She takes fish oil (also on iHerb) and she takes these Gaia Herbs Attention Daily. Our biggest challenge is commitment to the diet and drops when when we go through a good phase, yes it works. Any parent who is struggling with meds or not, try these alternative routes first.

I always hate spending the money on this kind of organic product that could really be a single serving size. I have 3 kids, sharing 1 pouch between them -- but they really want one each! We love the product but can only afford to buy it occasionally instead of an every day snack. If you find my review helpful, please click "YES"
This changed my life and my level of happiness. Please be a risk taker and try this. Yes, it does leak from time to time on heavy days -- just like a tampon does. And Yes, I've had some messes but don't let some of these reviews scare you. I'm 43 years old, 3 kids and I have been using it for 5 years exclusively. It changes my life. No more night pads or tampon since converting. NEVER ONE LEAK AT NIGHT. Freedom at night. If you found this review helpful, please click "YES"
This is such a great and cute product for kids to boost their brain power. The packaging is cute but the taste is strong, so I suggest that your kids plugs their nose to ease it down. It's worth the effort for focus and concentration at school -- if your kids will take it. If you find this review helpful, please click "YES"
I'm surprised that there are so few reviews of this toothpaste. I live in Asia and it's hard to get minty toothpastes for kids here. I really can't stand all the modern tooth flavors for kids - strawberry and orange etc. My kids mouths don't smell clean with these fruity flavors and then it's hard to transition into mint if they are too accustom to gentle flavors. This mild mint toothpaste has the perfect amount of mint without feeling too cold or burning in the mouth. True to it's advertising, it's mild. I often buy this as part of birthday presents for my kids friends. I order 10 at a time. If you find this review helpful, please click "YES"
From a kids perspective, this is the best tasting gummy on the market 100%. Tastes like pure orange candy with that added crunch of sugar. From mom's perspective though, that's a different story - a bit too much sugar in my opinion but I've tried all sorts of vitamins and they just complain, gag or sneak to the toilet to flush. I'm guessing moms have to choose. If you find my review helpful, please click "YES" to let me know. I've purchased over 300 products.
