The smell gave me a headache. It was gritty and gloppy and I threw it away.
Ick. Waxy, gooey, smelly, awful. Pretty colors, though. Carmex, I'm sorry, I'll never cheat on you again!

Dr. Bronner, will you marry me? This is a wonderful product. It's inexpensive, lasts forever, the bottle is great fun to read in the shower, and smells like candy. My local food co-op offers this in bulk, so I can (and do) re-use the same bottle again and again. Extra points for responsible packaging. Please remember, this soap must be diluted! I use an even less soap to water ratio than recommended, and it works just fine.
I've been using this deodorant for 3+ years and found that only in the hottest weather does it let me down. Even after shaving, I've never experienced any irritation. It even comes in a travel size! Another great KMF product I live in fear of being discontinued.

The smell drove me nuts. It's too goopy and glossy for my liking. The packaging, however, is divine.

This has been my staple body moisturizer for two years. It absorbs quickly and keeps skin smooth and soft with no icky waxy feeling. I live in daily fear of it being discontinued.
I had used the QH Mint Julep scrub for ten years and was always happy with it. With age, my skin has gotten drier and I was finding the mint scrub too harsh, so I tried this. It is wonderful! Smells like a day at the beach, is animal friendly, and the packaging is completely recyclable. The $4 price tag is a great plus, too.
