Absolutely addictive taste/smell!!
Posted by Reviewer1620513 on Jul 04, 2017 | Verified Purchase
In my view the ordinary badger lip balms are overall better. They are reliably slick without being oily. I tried this because I was curious. Here is what I found. The cocoa butter can be almost a bit gritty in colder weather which ordinary badger is not however in warmer weather it is like silk and a dream to put on. I suspect that its staying power is marginally better than the other badgers as well. However, although at first you may find the larger stick a bit clumsy, it grows on you and then you feel short changed when you return to the small size. It does seem to last well and beware if you like the smell of limeade or old fashioned lemonade, this is utterly addictive. Such a wonderful tangy lime scent!!
My 16 yo son is happy to clean the hob when I buy this. True story!

Works well in the shower on soap residue too

Ok a few provisos. My 16 y/o son has pus filled spots all across his lower face, chin and some on his neck and shoulders. I presume this is acne. I got him washes, wipes and gels but he is lazy and nothing seems to help much possibly because he doesn't keep up on the regimen. Tried ClearAc and no word of a lie, the condition was completely gone by the end of the packet. But some provisos - I have never had acne so am presuming that what he has is acne. You need to take the full dose or close to the full dose if you want to get rid of it. It is reasonably expensive and doesn't last long per box - a week or two? And I have seen his acne return within 2 days of him stopping taking it. So if you have the money to take it continuously (its not harmful) but will do anything to be acne/ spots free, then this is very much worth a go. May not work for you but worth a try. We tried Hylands Tissue D Acne when it was out of stock and whilst that helps a bit and has many of the same things in it, it doesn't work anywhere near as well.
The perfect lip balm

Just a tad thicker than Badger with a lovely smell. I like this lip balm a lot.
If you have terribly frizzy hair - this is definitely for you!!

My hair went from awesome, thick, strong and straight to ultra frizzy thin and disastrous after starting treatment for an overactive thyroid. I have tried all the Aubrey conditioner range, most of the Giovannis and a variety of others all to very modest to just ok results. I discovered Argan oil for the skin and put some on my hair with great results so when this came out, I gave it a go. Wow _ I havent had frizzy hair since - damp weather no problem, blow drying - no frizzies and no need for any other hair product. It really does deal to severely frizzy hair. But there is a catch. Hence the 4 stars. I only wash my hair 3 times a week (because of the frizziness) so when I wash with this my hair is perfect but my scalp and front are greasy. So I now put either a light conditioner on top or forego it all together. It's a little bit challenging but I still wouldn't trade it for frizzy hair again.
The most wonderful product that doesnt work!

I have very dry skin so I qualify this review by saying that this lotion may work for you if your skin is normal. I can put this lotion on 3 times a day for a number of days in a row and my skin is still dry and I mean dry not merely average. Having said that, the lotion has a wonderful consistency and feels lovely. It smells divine especially after its been on your skin a while. Just be aware if you do have very dry skin this may not be the product for you. I also have an issue with the price which I think is a little high for the amount.
Would make a great gift - very pleasant smell and lovely body feel

I have a large whirlpool style bath for 2 and I love this. Non greasy on the bath but definitely creamy/moisturising feeling when you are in the bath. A lighter scent but very pleasant, kind of fresh and mellow at the same time. Really is a quality product but 4 stars because of the price as it really only does about 4 - 5 serves out of a large bottle.
Cant say whether it shortens duration as I have always taken it with other stuff but I like it

This is great tasting - just like a cherry drop. Cant imagine anyone not liking the taste. Secondly whilst I am unsure whether it shortens the duration of the cold but what I love about it is that it gives you a near instant 15 - 30 minute pick me up. A pick me up that outweighs any other natural product I have tried and any OTC's as well. But note it is short acting. But hey you get to have it 5 times daily so its not that bad.
Gag - a - licious!!!!

I love Nubian heritage but the smell of this makes me want to hurl. Seriously, it has Soya Milk in it and it smells like a sickly baby vomit with a hint of sweet perfume. I am not very fussy about smells but this is so bad I am binning it. If you can get past the smell, it comes out in a wonderful buttery creamy blob which feels wonderful. It doesn't sink in straight away. I have very dry skin and I had to liberally apply it three days in a row before I started to see the benefits of smooth and soft skin. It does tend to be a little greasy after application. I think it probably works well with every day application but I cant get past the smell.
Maybe not for blepharitis with dry eye

I was desperately looking for a substitute for Oculoheel/ Clearlife which iherb has discontinued. It is the only thing I have had(including OTC) that has ever given me substantive relief from blepharitis. Boiron was well priced and well regarded so I had high hopes it might work for me but no go. Unlike Oculoheel there was no immediate soothing effect and as for dry eye, it made my eyes feel gooey and like they were impervious to moisture - maybe emulating some of those dry eye gels you get which you leave in overnight. If Blepharitis is your problem and you want to buy something here, I'd recommend Similasan dry eye relief. Its not as good as Oculoheel but used in tandem with an OTC wetting type tears drop you will still get a fair bit of relief.
