Five stars - I have seen dramatic results using the product and would recommend it. Four stars - A very good product. It may have a flaw which would be noted in the review. Three stars - I saw a mildly noticeable improvement, but not enough to continue taking the product. Two stars - Very slight improvement seen. One star - If I achieve no results, it belongs in this category. Also if there are any nonnegotiable issues with the product that make it impossible to continue using.
I am very sensitive to strong smells. This does have a scent to it, and it takes a few days for the scent to dissipate. After that, the scent is pleasant but not overpowering. It feels luxurious in the shower. I like that it is triple-milled: the soap is harder and less likely to melt in the shower. I do miss the 8-ounce bars that South of France was known for. I would rather pay more and have the same generous 8 ounces than to have a smaller bar of soap.
I have issues with anxiety and sleep. This product did not help. I took it for several months and did not notice any difference.
I take a medication that causes sinus congestion. This product relieves it. The only thing is I notice if I take it for days on end, it appears to lose a bit of its effectiveness. So I occasionally stop taking it and restart in a few days.

I took another Minami Omega-3/EPA/DHA supplement until Minami discontinued it, so I bought this one. Unfortunately, these capsules are gigantic. For me, they are dangerous to swallow. :/ On several occasions I was worried the capsule wouldn't go down my throat. I am comfortable with swallowing larger capsules, but these are the largest in diameter I have ever seen. Minami advertises about the high percentage of Omega-3s into one capsule. I would rather Minami split the dose into two pills of manageable size, as they did with the discontinued Minami Omega-3 product I was taking, instead of making a one-dose pill dangerously large for me to swallow. Omega 3s are generally very large capsules, but this one has crossed a line and could be a choking hazard. Switching to the Life Extension brand as a result.
I read the glowing reviews here and decided to give this a try to help my insomnia and circadian rhythm disorder. I probably got 3 days of good sleep from it before it stopped working. I cannot recommend it since 1. it stopped working quickly; 2. Melatonin is not considered an effective treatment for insomnia (google it). It is considered helpful for circadian rhythm disorders but it did not address mine. In short, it is not a magic fix-all for sleep problems.
I love this buffered C to ward off colds. I always have some in my cabinet so that I can begin taking it if needed!
I take this along with an Omega-3 DHA-EPA supplement to manage my high cholesterol and triglycerides and I am extremely happy with it. My cholesterol levels have dropped per my blood test results as a result of being on this product. I do not take any prescription medications for cholesterol management. Unlike other red yeast rice products, this one contains not only CoQ10 but also Cholesstrinol, which has been proven to lower cholesterol. I am a skeptic and something really has to work for me to stay on it so I am happy to give this my highest recommendation. I still have to watch my diet, as anyone does with elevated cholesterol, but I wouldn't be without this product.
I like this product. It is unscented and I am very sensitive to scents. I did not find any olive oil taste or scent. It is unflavored and unscented. Have reordered several times.
This was my number one choice of Minomi's EPA-DHA supplements as it has the ~most~ EPA-DHA of ANY in their lineup. Each dose contains a whopping 608 mg EPA and 208 mg DHA. It also has the most Omega-3 fatty acids: 1.04 gm. I was sad to find out they have discontinued this, when I believe it is the BEST one on the market. The other Minomi EPA-DHA offerings do not compare to this one. Please bring it back!
This toothpaste shatters any preconceptions I have about healthy toothpaste. It is exceptionally clean and refreshing with a very pleasant taste. It is my new favorite toothpaste!! It receives my highest recommendation.
