best lotion ever.....
I had for years very dry, embarrasing hands. They were dry, itchy, red and rough. Every time I found a product that worked the company soon stopped making it or changed the formula and I ended up with lotion that made my hands worse than before I used it. I have been using this product for over 5 years (approx.) now and I am no longer hiding my hands. It is amazing to have smooth, soft hands that are not cracked or looking like they belong to a mechanic who is afraid of soap and water. For me the smell is not overpowering (often the first test), the lotion readily "soaks"into my skin and a little goes a long way. This is also fantastic lotion for summer or winter which is also a plus. Update: once again a great product has been altered thus 5 stars down to 3. This is no longer the lotion I came to love. The ingredient list has increased but the lotion is no longer as effective as it used to be. My hands are not back to ugly again but they are no longer as soft and smooth as they were last year when I still had some of the "old / original" formula to use. It is so annoying.
love this stuff

I use this conditioner in conjunction with the blue chamomile hydrating shampoo and together they are fantastic. I have very long hair and use the conditioner mainly for my ends but I do comb it through my hair before rinsing. Gets the tangles out and once dry, leaves my hair silky, non frizzy and smelling great. Does not irritate my skin or scalp which is a real plus. The conditioner also smells really nice in my opinion, lightly flora but by no means over powering. A little goes a long way. I usually go through 2 or so bottles of shampoo to one conditioner but like I said, my ends need more help than the rest of my hair. Great product with great ingredients.
does the job...but....
Okay, I wanted a clarifying shampoo and this indeed does the job with ease. I kept debating 3 or 4 stars because although it does clarify, it also dried out my hair even though I used conditioner with it. So, yes, it gets out any build up but on the down side, I can not use it more than once or twice in a row or my hair feels like straw. I have very long hair that on top is normal but due to the length, my ends have a tendency to be drier so someone with shorter hair may not find it as drying a product.
my winter facial product
This is a must for my face in upstate NY during the winter time. Helps to moisturize without over doing it so my face is not dry and itchy nor am I breaking out. I have combination skin (oily T zone) which is very sensitive and mild rosecea. Using this product in the winter doesn't dry out my skin, cause my rosecea to become inflamed or give me pimples...what more could I ask for.
worked well for me
For me this worked very nicely. I did not find it overly harsh on my system but did get things moving. I also felt better at the end. I felt, less tired, less bloated and not as lathergic. I liked it so much I have purchased this same product to use again.
not for me
my biggest issue is the fragrance free actually smelled like a frying oil to me. This could be leftover from my first job working at an old fashioned diner but my hair smelled like a cold frier. As to being extra moisturizing, not so much but it was winter and my hair is drier so perhaps I had unreasonable expectations. I would not purchase this again due to the "oily/greasy" smell.

I have very sensitive skin and roseaca which often go hand and hand. This is the one product I have found which cleans my face without drying it out or irritating my skin. I don't always use it as a mask, often I use it as a scrub to gently clean my face. No redness, no burning, no drying, no rash and no itch...who can ask for more.
not for me
This was recommended to me however after using it a couple of days we decided my body does not need it since it did not want it. As I was not able to use it for any length of time I can not recommend it one way or the other.
This is my favorite shampoo. I love the smell but it does not seem to cling and increase as some shampoos do. My hair is soft, dries quickly and not as frizzy as normal. My hair also curls easier when I use it. I am Caucasian, long brown hair, medium thickness, it can have a slight wave and overall normal in texture and health. My ends need a little extra conditioning which I attribute to the length. My hair can be frizzy but no special issues besides that.
Love this soap
This is my favorite soap. The scent is neither too masculine nor too feminine. It smells clean and kind of like the early morning on a nice summer day far away from everything when it hasn't been really hot. I have very sensitive skin which is often itchy and has a tendency to get rashes. This soap helps sooth my skin without drying it out or further irritating it. When I have had a bad reaction to a product (deodorant last month) I can still use this soap and it does not make things worse which is really, really nice.
