Amazing scent

Posted by sugarcrusted on March 24 2016 | Verified Purchase

This bottle arrived with a little leakage, but it doesn't affect the scent. Smells wonderful! Kind of like honey lemon flavoured strepsils.

Thanks for your feedback!

Unflavoured doesn't mean no flavour

Posted by sugarcrusted on March 24 2016 | Verified Purchase

The powder dissolves easily in room temperature water, but it takes a while before the cloudy solution turns clear. There is also a distinctive flavour to the glutamine drink. The first time I tasted it it was repulsive - it tastes it has a umami flavour. Kind of like how MSG would taste like. With that said, the taste can be gotten used to over time. I tried adding it to soup and it made my soup taste more flavourful! But later on I read that L glutamine is heat sensitive, so don't add L glutamine to anything hot!

Extremely convenient

Posted by sugarcrusted on March 24 2016 | Verified Purchase

I take at least 20000IU a day as I'm always indoor, the higher dosage within each capsule makes it easier for me as I no longer have to swallow 4 capsules each time! It appears my body is unbalanced in a lot of ways, so taking the vitamin D alone didn't solve my issues of fatigue, insomnia, and eczema. But I will continue taking it because I know I'm definitely deficient in it based on my indoor lifestyle.

Thanks for your feedback!

Easy to swallow

Posted by sugarcrusted on June 7 2016 | Verified Purchase

The capsules are very small, making it easy to swallow. I didn't experience any special differences while on it. I take it together with Vitamin D3 for general health.

Rose scent too soft

Posted by sugarcrusted on September 13 2017 | Verified Purchase

Having tried the original scent free argan oil before, this oil is just as light weight and nourishing as that, with some added fragrance. However, the rose scent isn't as strong as I had wished for. It is a blend of essential oils: orange, rose geranium, lemon g r a s s (iherb claims this word as abusive or offensive, hence the weird spacing), and rose. It's great for those who are sensitive to smells, as the scent dissipates very quickly. I'd prefer the scent to be a little stronger, more rose and less of the rest. Good thing this doesn't cost more than the normal argan oil.

Quality product

Posted by sugarcrusted on June 7 2016 | Verified Purchase

I only bought the 354ml version because the larger bottle was out of stock when I needed it. Do buy that because it's more economical. The product is the same - moisturizing and smooths out my skin. Doesn't irritate my skin so I like it.

Thanks for your feedback!

It works!

Smells nice, works well on damp hair. I haven't tried it on dry hair yet, and am afraid to because I read reviews that it makes the hair very sticky. When used on damp hair and dried with a hair dryer (head flipped downwards so gravity does the dirty job for you) afterwards, it makes my very fine and soft hair a little harder, and it has a little grip so it can actually stand away from my scalp a little better than normal. Case in point, I live in a humid environment, so that is already quite impeccable.

Thanks for your feedback!

Love its texture

Posted by sugarcrusted on November 22 2017 | Verified Purchase

This unscented shea butter is solid at room temperature (25-30 degrees celsius), but I can get some to soften onto my finger tip easily. I like that it's stiffer than vaseline petroleum jelly, allowing me to control how much product I get with more ease. I find that scraping it with a spatula and transferring it into a smaller pot helps with the application process as well, as I do not have to risk dirtying the entire container of shea butter. Also, the scraping motion seem to soften the butter a bit too. More on the texture, it's like a lip balm. Once I rub it between my fingers/palms, it softens further and turns into a light weight finish. It doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all, and applying it onto moisturized skin helps to lock in that moisture. As it's an emollient, make sure to apply it to pre-moisturized skin to reap its maximum benefit. Applying it onto dry skin doesn't do much other than to make your dry skin shiny. Oddly, I feel that it's more lightweight than the argan oil I've been using. Who would have expected that? I have used it on my lips, my face, and my hands so far and am loving it. There isn't much slip (compared to a lotion) to the product so it's important to apply it gently, or pat it in instead of rubbing vigorously. Even though it's unscented, it has a light natural scent to it. It smells like extremely soft vanilla and cocoa to me! A little goes a long way, I think this 200ml will last me a long time.

Thanks for your feedback!

It works I guess?

Posted by sugarcrusted on January 31 2017 | Verified Purchase

Was scared that it'll break me out (even though I've never had acne problems before, but god knows what might happens right?) after reading the reviews, but thankfully my skin didn't react negatively to it. I think my hair growth did get stimulated though. I've lost a lot of hair in may and august due to my health issues. Don't ask me why it came in two waves, I have no idea too. I thought it's done shedding but no, I lost even more hair. After the shedding slowed down, i started taking these sometime in september. I can't say for sure that the biotin stopped my hair loss, because I think my hair loss resolved due to my improving health. But the hair growth, there is a possibility it's partly due to the biotin. My baby hair is growing at a speed I've never experienced before, and within 3 months my hair grew like 5cm and were all sticking out of my head, I look like a crazy woman with messy hair! Just glad that my hair is growing back with a vengeance. I didn't even take the biotin everyday, it's more like every other day whenever I remember. The capsules are the regular sized capsules. I just found out I can get a higher dose with a smaller tablet after trying out the Natrol biotin, so if you're not into pill swallowing, now you know there's an alternative.

Thanks for your feedback!

wonderful scent after dilution

Posted by sugarcrusted on February 25 2015 | Verified Purchase

the initial scent straight from the bottle didn't smell anything like lavender, but once i diluted it it smells a little like the crabtree and evelyn lavender water. the scent seem to disappear with time, by now, i don't think i can smell any more lavender fragrance. i dilute it with jojoba oil to treat my eczema, i haven't experienced any significant improvements yet since it's just a week. it doesn't irritate my skin. i use a 20 drops to 30oz carrier oil dilution.
