I bought this as an extra help to take care of my eyes after laser surgery which generally results in very dry eyes and need for frequent use of eyedrops. After taking this, dryness has decreased. Even at work I can sit for almost an entire day in front of the computer without tiring as much. Will reorder.
I am taking different antioxidant supplements for my skin as I live in a big city and care about the pollution my body comes in contact with on a daily basis, but I actually mainly take this in the mornings when I don't have time to drink a cup of green tea and it wakes me up wonderfully. My body is very sensitive to caffeine but this doesn't give me the jitters, even on days when I take two to fight off the feeling of lack of sleep during working hours. Even if I take one in the middle of the day I still manage to fall asleep beautifully in the evening. Am yet to notice a firming/slimming effect but that might come later.
I use this as a moisturizer. It is a bit difficult to get out of the jar unless you warm it up first (it gets REALLY hard when at room temperature), but it sinks into my skin absolutely beautifully and leaves it moisturised but not oily. And the smell! I don't use perfume anymore because this smell is so heavenly and lingers for quite a while.
I have been trying out a number of serums on my combination skin now that I am closing in on my 30s (will soon turn 28). This has made my skin a lot clearer, it leaves a matte finish when applied, the texture is good and the smell is nice.
This masque has a pretty thick texture but the smell is refreshing and it is easy to apply evenly on the skin. When I wash it off my skin looks a lot nicer than it did just before I applied the masque. My skin does need a little bit of extra moisturizer after using this but it clears up my skin. Have been using this extensively during the summer because sunscreens mess up my skin.
I thought this would be bitter just as many other pure cocoa powders are, but this is perfect. I blend with soy/almond milk and add a couple of drops of NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia. Worked wonderfully in chocolate chia pudding too.
This is the best stevia product I've tried. It is not bitter at all and blends wonderfully in beverages, both hot and cold, as well as in desserts. Will buy again (if I ever run out - this bottle will, I think, last me forever.)
