About Me

Hi, I am a freelance journalist, predominantly producing health features and treatment reviews and an author of four books, three of the self-help genre and one, Toxic Beauty, discussing the hazardous toxic chemicals used in everyday cosmetic and personal care products. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and have found various useful products on Iherb. I honestly don't know where I'd be without Iherb since the product prices are so reasonable and enable me to purchase supplements I wouldn't have access to in the UK. I purchase most of my natural beauty products and snacks from Iherb as they seem to offer some good organic protein snacks that aren't ludicrously high in sugar and some great organic skincare lines. I I hope my Iherb reviews give you some insight into my thoughts about the products Iherb carry.

Love it!

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 15, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I know I keep banging on about it, but I wrote a book on toxic chemicals in cosmetics and find it hard to get a decent shampoo and conditioner that doesn't contain lots of toxic synthetic chemicals. It's impossible to get a perfect conditioner because it will have some synthetic ingredients to do its job, but this worked well, left my hair smooth and didn't have an irritating scent. Overall I really like Acure Organics products and will continue to purchase them in the future.

Thanks for your feedback!

Excellent Conditioner!

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Great natural product. As author of Toxic Beauty about the hazardous chemicals frequently used in cosmetics I have a vested interested in natural products and it's tough finding a good natural conditioner. None of them are perfect I can assure you, regardless of what the brand might say, but this one is pretty good and I use it a lot. It leaves my hair soft and doesn't seem to strip my scalp of all its natural sebum like mainstream and even some 'natural' brands.

Thanks for your feedback!

Decent probiotics

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I often find that probiotics cause cause, bloating, stomach discomfort or other side effects and do very little else, but I like this particular brand and have had better results generally with them.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good B complex

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I found this recommended in a book for Chronic Fatigue sufferers. It's a good quality B complex with the active forms making it easier for the body to utilise.

Thanks for your feedback!

Useful form of vitamin C

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

It's said that liposomal vitamin C is easier for the body to use as we are only able to use around 10% of sources such as Ascorbic Acid. I find it useful because it doesn't irritate my gut inflammation like other forms of vitamin C and it does give a pronounced energy kick. I haven't noticed any long-term results yet, but I will keep purchasing this product.

Thanks for your feedback!

Fine

Not great, I've had better brands that produce raw sauerkraut and it seems to have a more beneficial probiotic impact. Not so impressed sadly :(

Thanks for your feedback!

Sure it's great but...

Not if you have CFS and gut disorders and respond adversely to other forms of dairy. I thought I'd give raw dairy and this a try but still gives me terrible stomach pains. Not to put anyone off though as I have heard great things about it helping those with chronic illnesses and cancer etc. It's just not for those who seem to have dairy issues.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great sunscreen

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 15, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This is a good sunscreen. It goes on easily, blends in and doesn't leave too much of a white tinge. It's touch as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can leave that whitish tinge, but this rubs in fairly well. It also smells great and did a great job of protecting my skin from the Corfu sunshine! It's the only sunscreen I will be buying in future.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great but...

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Great mint flavoring but it left a strange aftertaste.

Thanks for your feedback!

Quick energy boost

Posted by DawnMellowship on May 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I got this as a free sample and ended up buying boxes of the stuff. It's great if you need extra energy and suffer from any condition causing extreme fatigue. However, after a while it starts to give me the jitters so I take a break from it then start again. Better for you than loads of coffee though no doubt. I like Dragon Herbs.

Thanks for your feedback!
