It’s okay : ( updated review 10/15/2010

I know it is a bit early for a review but I just can help myself, I just got the soap yesterday. In the other reviews that I have seen for this product a lot of people kept say how bad the soap smelled, but in my opinion the smell was not that bad at all. It smelled like peanuts but it’s nothing to over the top. That is all I can say about the product for now. I will write a review on the results in regards to my acne in a couple of weeks.October 15th Update!!!To update you guys on my opinion of this product,I found it to be just okay, not great, not good but okay : (. I did not notice a change in my acne at all. I stopped using it after 3 weeks and started using another cleanser. You can check out my profile page to see my review on the “Other Cleanser”.

GREAT for problem skin, but smells like peanuts

This is all natural, with no funky fragrances, which is perfect for me because I’m very sensitive to perfume that is not natural (just going through the fabric softener isle at the store makes my stomach queasy). This soap smells like the natural smell of neem oil, which is a strong smell a little bit like peanuts.If you think you can tolerate that, you will be very happy with the results. In two weeks, I noticed a big difference in the skin on my upper arms, which is where I often get red scaly patches, about the size of a half-dollar. This soap, combined with a good lotion really made a difference. I usually use a neem oil lotion at night and a shea butter lotion during the day, since the Shea butter smells a bit less strong.I think it’s really worth a try if you have problem skin. Each bar lasts a long time and you will get a lot of uses out of it as long as you don’t leave it sitting in water. My toddler threw a bar in the toilet and it dissolved; I saw the label floating in the bowl and I knew.Give it about two weeks to work– it took about 10 days for me to notice any real difference, but it did happen.Recommended.

This Product Is Ok…

I have seen a slight difference when using, but it does make my skin very dry. Overall, I don’t think I will purchase this again.

get 100% pure vanilla oil

I ordered this when it had not been listed as ‘in jajoba oil’ and the image was so small I couldn’t see that it was not 100%, which is what I had been looking for. Since it isn’t 100%, the vanilla smells strongly for a few moments outside of the bottle and then fades quickly.

Nice smell, not as strong as I wanted

I love NOW products, and realize this is a dilution and not pure oil (diluted in grapeseed or jojoba, I forget). It does have a very nice smell, and I will just compensate by using more of the product.

Just a small problem.. but could be

I purchased this product because i love the smell of vanilla and liked the idea of multiple uses since it is mixed with jojoba oil.. i Use it a lot!!! oil diffuser, mixing my own cuticle cream, moisturizer, scrubs i will more than likely pick this up again once i run low… One area of improvement would be the dropper, i have bought many oils from NOW brand and they all work well, except this once, for some reason the dropper got clogged after a couple of uses, possibly b/c it is thicker than most, so i had to remove it to use it which make it difficult to dispense drops, maybe a bottle with an actual dropper (like one you have to squeeze to suck the oil into it, and again to release drops…would be much better for this product) i plan to use an old dropper from an over-the-counter infant tylenol, or from an oil bottle w/ one i have currently once it’s out in the meantime, but would have given 5 stars had it not been for this small annoyance

Used to make fondant.

While it’s marketed for skin care this is food grade glycerine, I bought this to make fondant, because my local craft store was no longer carrying Glycerin. I used it a few days ago in a chocolate fondant recipe and it worked just fine, it only called for a table spoon or two so I have plenty left over for next time. IF you couple this item to get free shipping it’s one of the best prices I could find that was still from a reputable company, if you’re stuck paying for shipping I’d suggest shopping around.

Sticky

After reading all the wonderful reviews about vegetable glycerine I had to buy it! I thought it was going to feel silky on my skin yet it was so sticky! Maybe I needed to mix it with something, but when I placed a small dime sized amount of the product on my arm it was not easily absorbed in my skin. Any suggestions on what to mix this with?The positive side, I did receive the product in a timely fashion. However, there was a small pin hole puncture in the plastic covering of the bottle. I was afraid it had been damaged and I did not appreciate them sending me a bottle with a small hole. Can something be done about this??I think in order for this to work a person has to mix it with something else. But buyer beware of it’s stickiness!!

Great toner

I’m highly sensitive to smells so have had to find all fragrance free products to use. A lot of products say they’re fragrance free but I can still smell them. This toner works well and has no smell!

Allyson Oglesby, IL

One of the better toners

This is great because it is fragrance free. It also has good antioxidants in it. The only downside is that the bottle is clear, so you have to be careful not to expose it to light. The antioxidants will break down and oxidize upon exposure to light or air (the bottle is a flip top so there is minimal exposure to air).

Great toner and first aid!

Over the past year I gradually replaced all the expensive, chemical-laden, brand-name cosmetics with simple and inexpensive organic beauty products. The skin gel was one of the first products that I bought and I am very happy with it. I apply it on my face and entire body as a toner/moisturizer after shower. A little goes a long way. Just a pea-sized drop can cover my face. It leaves a smooth, thin layer on my skin which dries quickly but locks in the moisture and tighten the pores. On top I put on some heavier lotion.I have combination skin that’s acne prone. With regular night moisturizers, I often wake up to a layer of oil which makes me look like I just spread butter all over my face. It’s the skin’s own instinct to overproduce sebum to compensate loss of moisture. When I use the skin gel as a toner, however, in the morning I would see relaxed, well-moisturized skin.

Rose Hip Seed Oil

I got curious about essential oils on my hunt for a solution to my dry, curly hair. I heard some talk about Rose Hip Seed Oil and how it can work well in thin hair because it doesnt coat the hair it absorbs and holds in moisture. With furthur research I learned that this oil contains vitamin A which helps assist with cell regeneration, delay the effects of skin aging, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase. The results are smoother, firmer and more youthful skin. There is also a high amount of essential fatty acid acids and Vitamin E which further promotes heathy skin. It is supposedly successful in treating stretch marks, psoriasis, eczema, hyper-pigmentation, uv damage, wrinkles, scars from surgery, acne and burns, dermatitis, age spots, burns, age spots, brittle nails and dry, damaged hair.Because it is a dry oil, it will soak into the skin easily and not leave a greasy residue, but dont use too much. It spreads very easily so you only need a little bit and it will last a long time. Even though you can use it un-diluted on your hair or skin you can also add it to creams, lotions, moisturizers, conditioners ect. It is not recommended for use on sever acne or on very oily skin.My first time using Rose Hip Seed Oil I added a few drops to a combination of Suave Moisturizing Almond and Shea Butter Conditioner and Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine 3 minute Deep Conditioner, then I combed evenly through my hair and left in for about 15 minutes before rinsing out. That day I did notice an increased softness and less frizz, although no extra shine like I was hoping for. I have natural curly hair thats shoulder length and pretty fine, although I have alot of hair and it is dry and can get frizzy. On my hair Id rate this oil at about a 3 but there are many other great uses for it.So far I’ve applied this oil using a cotton swab to my nails twice a day for about a week and the results are phenomenal. I’ve always had crap nails and cuticles that I had a habit of biting that I just couldnt get over. Every once in a while I’d stop, and they’d grow (some of them) but they’d always have an ugly color and break because they were so weak, so eventually I’d start biting them again because I hated them anyways. A little while ago I found I no longer had the need to bite them (thank god) but still have the same problem, also they get weird bumps and ridges and some of them grow uneven. But ever since I started with this oil my nails have not only grown (if you can see results in only a week, you know it’s working) but they are already looking healthier, feel stronger and I haven’t broken a nail since starting and thats a record for me. It has also already started to heal my cuticles and suprisingly a cut on my hand that I experimented with a dab of the oil, cool. Although even more suprising, I tried this on a razor bumps and over night they were gone.I would like to try this on my acne scars, as I have yet to find a product that will get rid of them, but am worried as my skin is semi oily and I still tend to break out from time to time. Last thing I want to do is make my skin worse, right? But I do plan on experimenting with it and Tee Tree Oil, which I’ve used with success on the occassional break out (and many more uses) and possibly a facial cream and add to my review at a later time.

Works for my teenage skin + my mom’s acne scars

I discovered this product and bought it as a skin treatment for myself, as I wanted a more even complexion (due to my tanning addiction) and for a scar on my eyebrow (a stupid piercing mistake years ago). I also bought a bottle for my mother who has stubborn, moderate acne scarring/redness. She is EXTREMELY pleased with the results she has gotten so far, as she notices that her scars that she has had for 20+ years are getting flatter and less noticeable, even after just a few uses. It leaves my face smooth and brighter and I actually get less acne. I can only imagine the benefits of this use long-term, especially for damaged skin . For approx. $7, you can’t go wrong with trying it! I have seen its magic working already.–UPDATE–5 weeks ago, I was attacked by a dog and had 22 stitches to my face. I tried using Mederma and saw relatively no results (I know you’re supposed to use it for a long period of time; I’m still using it). For only the past two days, I have applied this oil and I have been literally SHOCKED with how much better my scar looks! I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! If i use this long term (w/ Mederma), I believe my scar will literally disappear. VERY PLEASED!!!!

Superb

I don’t even know how to express how excited I am to have found this product. I was having flashes at least 6 times a day and night sweats as well as being a bit on the mean and moody side, but I am symptom free now and have been for at least a month now. I do use a progesterone (natural) creme too, but it never worked as well alone as it works with the promensil. The promensil my be just enough too, but I don’t dare change anything now that I am "me" again! Give this a shot, you will be quite happy!

no more hot flashes

I am very impressed with the results which happened after taking this just one week. After doing some research about safe methods to reduce hot flashes, I came upon this product. There are many studies done mostly in Europe, and they are very positive. I had 5 to 6 hot flashes every night, robbing me of a good night sleep. Now I have maybe 1 hot flash every 3-4 nights. This really worked for me. I will be taking this for a very long time. Studies also show that this supplement helps retain bone density, and helps with mood swings.

Great brand, very potent! 🙂

I’ve only used this product a couple times because it is VERY potent, but that’s a good thing! If you’re using it for detox, candida or other illness take it slowly. Just one drop caused a "herx" or die-off reaction for me (again, a good thing). I highly recommend but use with caution and take it slow if using internally.

Rediboo

I have oily skin I tried this with the recommended lavender oil and substituted almond oil for jojoba oil which I didn’t have. I also have sensitive skin it felt tingly while it was on, when I washed it off, my face was bright red and burning didn’t feel like tackling the cold to cut an aloe leaf so I applied a squirt of Argan oil to my face. It’s cooling down a bit. What I like so far about this mask is that it not only washed immediately out of the wash cloth I was using, but left it feeling super soft. The other clay masks I’ve tried like queen Helene have ruined wash clothes I’ve used. So I’m convinced this is better for my skin on that basis alone at the moment, will see what happens with my face going forward

Im a FAN

The first time I used this, after completely rinsing it out, I thought: meh, It’s fine. I mean, my skin was smooth and all but I didnt see anything wowing me. I tend to get a bunch of tiny blackheads around my nose, and on my left cheek I had like a couple of pores that were too big and clogged with whiteheads and blackheads and even some zits… You get the picture. Not pretty. So right after when I just noticed that there was minor cleaning and softness I was somewhat dissapointed.But magically, after days of not using this, but just keeping my daily routine of oatmeal soap, tonic and moisturizer, The pores and the zits started to get smaller and the blackheads on my nose to dissapear. You could say that it was because of my routine and not because of this Clay. But man, I’ve been using the same routine since forever and nothing had changed like it did now. So I think the real effects start showing after a while.Im still using the clay mask once a week plus my daily routine and im been doing great.

Great product!

I don’t always use face masks, as some of the ones I used in the past irritated my skin. I decided to give this one a shot, because it is all natural, and I can add oils and other thing to it and customize it to my own skin. I added a small amount of aloe vera gel and coconut oil to this powder and adjusted the amount of water I added. I had great results! Since I added the moisturizing ingredients, it didn’t dry my face out, and it shrunk my pores and made my skin look amazing! My husband was also impressed. I showed him how great my skin looked, and he agreed. He said it looked like I had foundation or powder on, because it seemed to even my skin tone so well! I will continue to use this mask once or twice a week, and although the jar seems small, with the small amount I need it should last a while. I will definitely recommend this to family & friends, and repurchase in the future! 🙂

With continued use, you will notice your skin feels softer and replenished. This product is scented with lemon and pure lavender oils. When you use this product at first it might sting a bit. Your skin does get used to it and after a few weeks of use you simply don’t notice the lemon scent, just the results that become very apparent in the mirror.I’d recommend this for daily use under your normal moisturizer. I use it over my entire body and buy about one bottle every two or so weeks. Just a tiny amount mixed into body creams also helps the skin all over your body feel amazingly soft. The glycolic acid, aloe vera and Vitamin C are the main reasons, not to mention Coenzyme Q10.Ingredients: Deionized Water, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 80, Glycerin, Vitamin C-Ester (Ascorbyl Palmitate), DMAE, Polyethylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid (alpha-Hydroxy Acid) , alpha-Lipoic Acid, Lemon Oil, Simethicone, Lavender Oil, Aloe Vera, Methylparaben, Biotin, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D-3, Vitamin E, Calcium Pantothenate, Coenzyme Q10 and Chamomile Flower Extract 4:1.Also look for the Skin Eternal DMAE Serum that is scented with kiwi and coconut.~The Rebecca Review

Love it!

If I had to choose just one product to use for basic skincare, this would be it! A little bit goes a long way and the bottle of serum lasts for months. It works best overnight, when the product can be absorbed into your skin and work its magic. (You can use it in daytime under make-up, but I find that using it at night is enough.) It softens skin, leaves it looking clear and healthy, and it goes on easily and evenly. This is the one product I’ve used that always has people asking me what I use on my skin –if I stop using it for a while and start back again, the comments quickly follow. I am over 50 and this serum keeps my face amazingly wrinkle-free. My daughter, who is just starting college, uses it too now. The good thing is that it does not cause any break-outs or acne flare-ups and it keeps her skin beautiful.
