I like these better than their gum. Taste good, hope the xylitol has some positive effect, but I don't eat them that often, so can't really say.
lives up to "superior taste" claim
I like Carlson brand, took one bottle of this after finishing a much more expensive fermented brand. I did not notice any difference in anything while taking cod liver oil. I am sure it's good for me, but I didn't repurchase. This is easy to take, just tastes like lemony oil (though swallowing a straight spoonful of any oil, no matter how tasty, is a little gag-inducing to me). More economical than buying capsules. I would choose this one over some of the less expensive brands.
does the job
I prefer to make my own lip balms, but picked this for the spf 18 for days at the beach, etc. I think I wanted cherry but it was out of stock. Tastes good, nice texture. Not too waxy and doesn't turn you white like some SPF products. Doesn't seem to break me out, which can be a concern depending on ingredients. I don't use it often.
Not so great as deodorant.
Smells great, but the alcohol is irritating and it isn't a very effective deodorant for me. Also kind of expensive for small amount. Nice as a perfume though. Probably wouldn't buy again.
This is effective, and I like the texture, but this formula has dimethicone and I think the previous formula had parabens. Also just a long ingredient list and not sure all that needs to be in there. I think a lot of the hype about all the "chemicals" is unfounded but personally I still prefer to look for something a little "cleaner".

I feel like the only one not raving about this, but I didn't find it that great. I think my skin was really pretty bad when I tried it though.
not what I wanted
Not the traditional African black soap I was looking for. This is a hard solid actually BLACK bar of soap, smells overwhelmingly sweet and fruity. It was okay as far as regular soap goes, but wouldn't buy again, and I wanted real African black soap.
Read so many reviews praising this stuff, but wasn't good for me. Far too drying and irritating! I had oily skin with sometimes severe cystic acne. Finding the root cause of the breakouts (food sensitivities) and using less/gentler topical stuff was better.
Thick, sticky, waxy...did not like this, felt like it just sat as a coat on top of my skin. I now use unrefined raw bulk shea butter that is silky, absorbs nicely, not like this yellow gloppy stuff.
I like Carlson brand. Just noticing it's a little misleading, as it says may contain up to 30% other fish, but the front says Norwegian Salmon Oil as if that's the only source. Better than some though, that don't tell you much about the source or purity testing, etc. I take two a day. Good for a lot of things.
