THE REAL THING
Absolutely the real thing! I have been using pure and organic tamanu oil for some time and my skin loves it and looks better and better (and I'm 48). I can vouch for this particular oil. Try it- it's fantastic!
YESSSS! ( Or not quite anymore...)
Just perfect. Light, no white cast, healthy\safe ingredients and lots of product for your money. Way to go, Devita! Thoroughly recommended ;o) Update: Yes, I did rave about this one and I still use it because of it's truly fantastic ingredients and what it can do for skin as a moisturizer, BUT: When I went to Goa recently, I wore this all the time thinking it would keep me from tanning more than just a wee bit... I was so wrong. I did tan a surprising lot for wearing a 30 spf sunscreen. With other brands I tan minimally with that high factor, but something isn't right here. Devita must check this out! My guess is that the protection level is much closer to 15 than 30, and that is not good. Buyer beware!!! Nevertheless I'm only removing one star and will continue to use this because of the before mentioned benefits, but I'm investing in a TRUE 30 spf sunscreen now...
Not so sure...
All of the ingredients are bonafide - except for the inclusion of cassia essential oil. I didn`t know until recently that it is a strong sensitizer and not recommended on skin.
When I purchased this, I made a mistake: I did not read the ingredient list carefully enough. Thinking of course, that this must be an excellent choise from a reputable company like Solgar- I was so disappointed when I saw that it contains carrageenan. This is a cheap filler kind of ingredient and not healthy for the intestines and general digestion, I have learned this from Dr Weill, whose information I trust. Also, with only 16 servings per bottle, this becomes a very expensive option, so I´can only give one star. Please Solgar: Remove the carrageenan from this otherwise excellent formula!
Nice (no, very very nice indeed)!
I'm starting on my second bottle now- and the ingredients are cretainly good- but so far i haven't really noticed anything special. I've had no adverse reactions, and appreciate that it is fragrance free! Update: On my sixth or seventh bottle now, and I can safely say that this is a very high quality serum (and I have tried so many, both expensive kinds like Kanebo, Shiseido, Dior etc, as well as other organic options here on i Herb.) My 49 yrs old skin is loving it; and I´m sure the retinol and other scientifically tested & proved ingredients are partly responsible for my skin looking as good as it does ( wearing a sunscreen every single day definitely helps too)! It sinks in wonderfully, leaving my combination skin nicely moisturized and almost fine line- free. I don´t need to apply moisturizer afterwards, only around the eyes and mouth. My only concern is the packaging : the pump delivers a pretty big amount, but I use it on my throat and decolletage and hands as well- but for those of you who don´t just half a pump will do. Also, AO would do better if they changed the bottle´s transparency- they should make it completely opaque to protect the retinol and other antioxidants from deteriorating. But all in all, I´ll keep on buying this one, and hope you will too! Enjoy...

Wow! Choc full of top, clinically proven ingredients... and I love the results. Very supple, and much smoother skin around the eyes. The consistency is rich but still oddly light once you pat it into the skin, and the scent is divine! BUT: I feel a little cheated with only a 15 ml bottle... it should be 30 ml like the vast majority of eye creams. Do you read me, Mad Hippie?
Weird but wonderful
This foundation is the weirdest I`ve tried and I`ve tried them all (or so it seems ;o). I LOVE the ingredients. But for my oily/ combinatin skin it`s unfortunately too oily. The scent is very natural and discreet, the colour beautiful and natural as well. But application is time-consuming compared to liquid makeup. The shimmer is a little too pronounced for my taste- but at the same time elegant and you do get that almost lit-from-within glow. My guess is that this must be a godsend for gals with dry skin because it is wonderfully moistureizing- at the end of the day my crows feet were still totally soft. I hope MyChelle makes a version for oily skin- and with SPF!!!
Great stuff- top quality vitamin C powder. So much better than artificial ascorbic acid. Will recommend. And the price is good too! Update: This has become my absolute favorite source of (supplement) vitamin C, I've lost track of how many batches I've been trough so far. Highly recommended!
Not really for the face...
In all fairness: I`m using these as facial wipes, and as such I can not recommend. Hopefully better as a baby`s bottom wipes! They feel relatively dry, but my main concern is the added- and synthetic fragrancee. Extremely strong! Way, way too much. It makes my skin sting. I expected such a product to be fragrance -free or at least to be only gently fragranced. I usually read the full ingredient list- I must have slipped! Definitely will not repurchase.

This is really really good stuff! After just two days of use, my tummy works amazingly well, no bloating anymore, I'm as regular as a child! Recommended ;O)
