great refresher for everyday use!

I use this often in various ways. My main use is to spritz on over my vitamin C serum if I want a little bit of hydration but using a lotion + sunscreen would be too heavy. It seems to calm my skin and hydrate without leaving my skin tacky. It dries clean and smooth and makes a nice base for applying sunscreen. I also use this at any time of the day that I need a pick-me-up. If I'm feeling hot and sweaty and stressed out, I spritz this on my face and shoulders and I feel so much better. Tip: keep this in the fridge to make it even more calming and pleasant in hot weather! I had a coworker "of a certain age" and she used this trick to keep her hot flashes more manageable -- dousing herself with this spray whenever she felt one come on. Rose is known to be an aromatherapeutic stress-reliever and hormone balancer, and I'm a believer. I don't think the rose scent is overbearing at all and it fades very quickly, IMHO. It's not my favorite rosewater per se (I also have a pure damascena rosewater that's amazing if I want to enjoy the rose scent) but I like that Reviva mixes rosewater with some other great ingredients like hyaluronic acid (which helps to keep moisture in the skin) in this particular facial spray. Oh, and one last thing... I am pale and sunburn easily. I had a half bottle of this left and mixed it with pure George's Aloe Vera juice and it is INCREDIBLE for sunburn. Especially straight from the fridge, applied liberally every hour or so.

Another reviewer was right -- these do taste a bit like Fritos, but more hearty and harder to chew. In a good way. ;) Love munching on these instead of chips. They tasted really fresh too -- sometimes with snack food like this, the corn or the cooking oil is rancid, but that was not the case with these. Yum!
Really good GF brownie mix! Plus protein!

I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this product. I was looking for something with clean, organic ingredients that I could make when I was having a chocolate/sugar craving, BUT I'm trying to avoid wheat, and I tend to be hypoglycemic so I like to make sure my protein/fat/carb/fiber intake is kept in balance. This treat fits the bill. I made it as the package specified, using Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as the oil. I bought four so I think next time I make these I will try to sneak in some more fiber (maybe some more flax, or some acacia powder) and I might sprinkle some chocolate chips on top too. Oh, and I liked another reviewer's idea of making them in mini-muffin tins. They are a little crumbly and I liked the edge-pieces best, so that would make it just about perfect. Thanks, iherb, for selling a great product at a competitive price!

This product really works to blend protein shakes with no residual powder clumps, and it is a great size too--it fits well in my female hands. It closes nice and tight too, with no leaks. Also works great on salad dressings, I might add! Much better than the typical shaker you get in the grocery store. I'm tempted to get the smaller size just for that purpose.
Fabulous flavor, and gluten-free

Love the nuanced flavor this gives to my Asian recipes. I've never been a soy sauce fan but this is so different! You really have to try it, especially at iherb's amazing prices.

I used to dread making anything that called for buttermilk. Don't get me wrong, I love the flavor that real buttermilk imparts (I prefer it to the substitutions with lemon juice or vinegar) but I always felt wasteful when the remainder of the carton didn't get used before spoiling. Saves a TON of money! Now I keep this on hand at all times -- I actually store it in a Weck jar in the fridge -- and I am able to whip up fresh buttermilk whenever I want without any excess left. Love it and HIGHLY recommend to people who love to bake.
Works very well, especially if applied immediately.

Love the way this stuff works, and I also like that it doesn't smell noxious! Works quite well on grease, blood, and other stubborn stains. Also, the brush applicator tip is very clever -- it seems to really work the solution into the fabric.

Good simple sanitizer, and triclosan-free, which I appreciate. Also, the smell isn't too chemical or strong like many sanitizers. The bottle is a great size for my purse!
It's definitely soothing.

I have chronic asthma worsened by my allergies and since I live with 4 cats that I'm allergic to, I live with daily asthma symptoms too. I can't afford and don't want to constantly take an expensive Singulair Rx and I try to minimize use of my emergency inhaler so I'm always searching for natural solutions. This is one of my favorites. I also like the Ivy tablets but I think the liquid is a bit more soothing and quick-acting. I just find that I rest better at night and have less wheezing when I remember to take swigs of this every day. I do wish they would package this in a larger bottle! I go through a single bottle within a week or so.
Not sure what other people are using this for...

...but it makes tasty "date shakes" when added to plain protein powder, date crumbles, and ice!
