Better at prevention than relief!

This is a very good lip balm, more waxy and thicker than a balm like Badger for example. Excellent for if you are going out in the cold and wind in the morning and want to protect your lips. However it seems less optimal for dry, parched lips. When my lips feel dry and sore, there is no sensation of the moisturiser going into your lips and providing immediate relief. Badger for example does this. However Badger needs to be reapplied about 5 times a day whereas I use this only once or twice a day and it is fair to say that since I have been using this, my lips have noticeably been in less need of 'relief' Also when on, it gives the appearance of a nice clear lip gloss.
Cant tell if it's good as I am still struggling with the burning sensation

Highly aromatic, even unopened you can smell it! And in the words of the exterminator on Over the Hedge - "there's going to be a lot of stinging!!" I havent been able to tolerate it on a regular basis to date but I am going to persevere and try and build up some tolerance to it. I find for it to have a good clear out of my sinuses I need a good strong spray but that means a lot of burning so at the moment it is only partially effective. For first time use, use very sparingly and dont be surprised if it makes your eyes stream. If you are used to salt water rinses, it might not bother you as much.
Lovely Smell, Nice Bigger sized Chap Stick

This is very similar to Badger but I think I prefer it to Badger. Not quite as oily but very moisturising.
Dont waste your money! Pills are utterly huge and untakeable.

I can take most pills but these are the worst. After a nasty bout of fever blisters I decided to start on Lysine but wasted my money here. The pills are large in size (length ways) but probably the thickest (depth) pills I have ever taken (I take roughly 20 pills and supplements a day for a variety of conditions). They are so large it is almost impossible to cut them and if you do, they are still too thick to swallow when cut in 1/2. When cut roughly into quarters, I still struggle to get them swallowed as they are very angular as well. Definitely the worse pill I have come across. Out they went!
I woke up without eyepain for the first time in 8 years!! If you have blepharitis or chronic dry eye - try this!!

I have only been taking this for 4 days so cannot say whether this will result in long term effectiveness. I tried it because my eyes are miserably sore all the time. They are blurred, light sensitive, fell dry and are gritty 24/7. I have tried nearly all of the OTC drops and a number of the natural preparations from iherb as well. nothing really works and those that help a little, I have to cycle through every month or two to keep them being effective. Recently I have taken to wearing moisture retaining glasses as its been a hot dry summer. I have never felt that homeopathy could be effective and have always viewed it as illogical so this is the first time I have tried a homeopathic preparation. Got Oculoheel as it was on special. First drops and there was a slight sensation of tingling and I thought this isn't going to work. Fell asleep with my daughter after school and woke to find that my eyes felt quite good. Used the Oculoheel again, woke up in the morning with a little discomfort but no pain. In 3 or 4 days, I have stopped needing the glasses (and have had fans on, my eyes are not sore (there's a slight sense of grittiness but easily ignored, are using about a 3rd as much of the Oculoheel as my current drops, can see clearer and am not affected by glare as much. I have checked and Oculoheel is particularly suited to longterm use. So if you have chronic dry sore eyes and have not tried this, do. So far and I know its only 4 days - this has been a Godsend and really my find of the decade. Fingers crossed it keeps on being effective!!!
Seems to be working!!

I have only taken this for 3 weeks so a little early to tell but I am fairly sure that my 20 year long flat wart problem (probably about 50 across the entirety of my body)is about to be dealt with. The very small flat ones have started to rub off whilst I think (cant be sure) that the bigger ones may be shrinking. There is definitely something different in their appearance. I am going to keep up the dose for at least 3 months and see what happens. For the price definitely worth a try. Also if like me, you have a fungal sinus problem, you may see a slight improvement there as well. Tastes horrid though - like drinking a pine tree!

Good price, smaller sized pill with no aftertaste
No doubt healthy and nicer than eating fermented veges!

maybe I need to take a higher dose and or for longer but had hoped this would help with my IBS. In 3 weeks I havent noticed a difference.
Only buy if you like a very spicy sauce!

Same great quality and flavour as the sweet ginger sauce in this range except this has a ton of chilli floating in it. I have some Malaysian friends who add chilli sauce to their food so I am guessing that this is aimed at people who eat their eastern food with plenty of zap. If you are more used to eating sweet and sour, chow mein, kung Po chicken etc as commonly served in restaurants in the West, you may find this too hot. Still great, depends on your palate.
Maybe too early to tell

I bought this as I have chronic blepharitis and my eyes are always very sore. It seems to have had no effect on the sore eyes but it just may have helped my eyesight although I think its probably too early to tell.
