Trial size, so not much experience
Posted by NeaLovesiHerb on Sep 05, 2011
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.
Nice and good for skin, but...
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.
Nice and nurturing
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.
Very strong lavender smell + irritates my skin
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.
