Perfect lip balm, only negative which is my opinion only, is the vanilla smell. I love vanilla, but here the smell seems almost like a bit synthetic. Otherwise great and practically free lip balm!

I really like these bars, they are crunchy and satisfying! They get 4/5 stars though because these really cause gas, even if you it eat just one bar. A big class of water helps with it though. But otherwise, yummy and affordable, I really like it that they are a good snack on the go for us who follow a low carb diet. Will buy again!
Good product: huge tube and very cheap, high xylitol content, papain for whitening (which I have not noticed to happen though). Also cleans teeth very well, I changed from Sensodyne to this and wow do my teeth feel smooth! The only cons are that some of my teeth feel a bit sensitive all day when using this, then again I have sensitive teeth, and the cinnamon smell in this one is a bit off, almost like moldy... I HOPE it´s just the way it is and my toothpaste is not contaminated... also at first gums felt a bit burning, that must be because of the cinnamon though and that went away. All in all, I decided to buy platinum mint Xyliwhite now, maybe the taste is fresher.
Beware of the mechanism: pumping causes an explosion of serum all over your bathroom! In other words you´ll waste this unless you very carefully press the pump. Also, the smell is quite interesting, here the combination of orange and cocoa doesn´t work, it smells a bit stale in my opinion. Plus side is, the texture is lovely and absorbs quickly. Also always important that the product is hygienically packed in a pump bottle to avoid contamination! Haven´t noticed any changes in my skin, though, perhaps I need a longer time to use this.

I´ve taken 1-2 tablets per day... unfortunately I havent noticed much of a difference, when taking the tablets at night. Maybe a little relaxation. Could work well when taken with melatonin.
These are great tasting, I don´t think anyone would notice these are vitamins and not candy! The downside is these are quite weak, to have enough C one must eat the 3 gummies, and that makes the bottle last only 30 days. I wish these were stronger! Also, these are very sugary, I cringe everytime I chew pitying my poor teeth. That´s another reason I would wish there was more vitamin C per one gummy.
However my stick broke halfway througn the tube. Also the mechanism that you use to push it up isn´t very practical. I don´t really know how to use this, tried it everywhere from skin to lips. OK in lips, but in skin the butter didn´t melt quickly enough, so I had to rub it in. Popular product, but not for me.
This creme smells strongly, not for the faint! I don´t mind it, although I am not a lavender fan, so it is a bit annoying, especially as it lingers for quite some time. The product also forms a little oily "puddle" as well, maybe because of the lack of proper emulgators (which is a good thing in natural cosmetics, of course.) The texture is creamy but absorbs surprisingly quickly, which is a bonus. This seems to cause little bumps on my face, not zits but more like an allergic reaction. I don´t think this is a product for me, but for others it seems to work wonders.
That´s it, these are cheap. Otherwise I haven´t noticed anything special, and these are quite mild so I have to take 3 at a time. The peppermint flavour is also quite weird, not fresh at all. Tablets feel starchy to chew or melt. Not my first choice for melatonin, there are tons of stronger and better tasting products.
