i was looking for an unscented no fragrance lotion and this is not it. it has a strong nutty smell which i don't dislike but definitely not what i was looking for. the smell is so strong that once i applied it to skin, the scent lingers for sometime. it does have a light texture which i prefer over the butter like moisturizers. it does the job at moisturizer, nothing spectacular. not sure if i will buy again since i am still looking for a good absolutely no smell moisturizer.
buy again and again

rarely do i re-purchase cosmetic products as there are so many on the market, and i have yet to find one that i feel like i can not live without. now after nearly emptying out my second jar...i'm starting to think this might be one of those rare items. this is not so much an item i would use on a day to day basis when my skin is fine and healthy. it is a bit thick and oily, but very moisturizing. however, this is an item i would use in times when my skin goes haywire and becomes dry and difficult. in times like these, most of my skin care products don't do anything and sometimes make my skin feel worse. this cream really calms it down and moisturizes it without stinging. this is a good basic face cream that don't irritate.

i really like this pure serum. i find i see results even after 1-2 applications. right now i only apply this at night and in the morning i find my skin softer and more smooth. i really hope iherb does not discontinue this product as i wish to buy it again once i finished with my bottle.
very pigmented and smooth

i bought this along with several other tinted lip balms. at first most of the ones i got are quite similar with each other, but with several usage, i find this one goes on smooth, unlike some others which leaves a 'tinted lip balm streak'. i would say this is a cool red color which is fine with me. it is very pigmented as well. i personally like it very pigmented because it replaces the use of lipstick. there are no glitter particles in it but it does leave a layer of shine, not as glossy as lip gloss but not matte either. it does have a strong sweet scent, which i dont mind and it goes on minty which i like. i find the oval shape easier to apply than round lip balms.
one of the biggest irks of moisturizers i used in the past is that they absorb so slow, thus leaving this greasy layer sitting on my skin. im not even sure if those moisturizers got absorbed at all. i decided to buy this smaller bottle to try and on the first use, i was delighted at it being able to absorb into my skin almost immediately. it smells very strong of lavender which i dont mind. perfect for bed time.
bye bye digestive problems
i started taking these only last week by already i noticed a difference in my digestive system. i now go very regularly every morning and food seems to be digesting faster than before. which means even if i had a very full meal, and gets bloated, that feeling doesnt last long. not sure how this will lead to weight loss but it's definitely detoxing my bowels.
really like the taste of this vitamin c. wish i can take it more than once i day!
overpowering for younger skin

i bought this after reading so many positive reviews and was in need of a night moisturizer. since our skin condition change from week to week due to weather, stress levels and changes to our skincare routine, my skin on occasions can become more dry and sensitive than other times. during when my skin is normal, i put this cream on with no problem, though it does tingle a bit at first just as it was applied. but when i tried putting this on when my skin is bit too dry or too thin, it stings and makes my face rather red and uncomfortable. it's probably the active ingredients that irritates my skin. perhaps im bit young (22) to use this or that i don't use it continuously due to it's overpowering ingredients to see any effects. neither do i find it that moisturizing. i always have to resort back to using a simple moisturizer after using this cream for a few days. have yet to finish my pot that i got this past september.
