INCREDIBLE MUST HAVE PRODUCT! Has replaced my love for Epsom salt which I stopped using as soon as I upgraded by discovering this. I buy in bulk online because this is a health/well-being product I cannot be without- a definite STAPLE. 100% natural and untarnished unlike some modern sea salts and such a lush treat to use on a regular basis. I use the finely milled food grade …Read more

Shampoo - Shea Moisture - Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

May/07/2014

I like the way this performs, softening and cleaning my hair without drying it out. I also like the organic list of ingredients, the rich lather and how a little goes a long way however I absolutely LOATHE the smell. Like others have mentioned it reeks of something similar to an old men's cologne- that's major a con for me. And the scent lingers even after washing it out. I've …Read more

Tried this after reading reviews as I was looking for something mild and organic with thorough cleansing capabilities- instant hit. Been using for over 6 months now. I use this on face and body, itseven gentle enough for use on intimate areas too I found- no burning! The other scents available are a bit much for me from what i've sampled so I'm happy to have bought this mild version …Read more

Fantastic for any digestive issues eg- 1 tbsp in a glass or water helps reduce bloating or excess gas issues like nausea stomach aches etc within about 10 mins.
- I add it to my pink salt baths and it makes skin even softer than the salt …

A great multifaceted oil for hair & skin. I brought the Sunny Isle Extra Dark Jamaican Black Castor Oil from Ebay in Dec 2012 for £11 for the 8oz bottle & have been using it regularly

I use this on my face (1 drop) alongside Avocado oil. This combination leaves my skin moisturised, smooth & is helping to fade blemishes. Breakouts/oil production has also been …

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Avocado Oil

Feb/16/2013

Avocado oil is the BEST oil for me, my absolute favourite. All natural, packed full of nutritious vitamins (A, B12, D, E etc) helps gradually heal scarring, brightens the complexion & makes skin really soft. I’ve tried Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Olive Squalene, Rosehip, Shea Butter, JoJoba Oil & Vit E oil (mixed tocopherols) but this is my top pick for my face after much …Read more

Epsom salts are hands down the BEST natural product discovery I made in 2012. My review echoes all the other glowing reports everyone else has given. The silky texture of the water and my skin after a good 30-40 min soak is the most miraculous alongside the salt's ability to reduce my post work out aches by a good 70%. The science behind it is amazing
Prior to discovering these salts I …

Initially I was taking a 25mg pill but after 3 days I suffered all the adverse sickness reactions people have warned about despite taking with a meal like everyone has pointed out so I stopped immediately. I must add that I also take a Skin Hair & Nails vit in the mornings which also contains 15mg Zinc so I was getting a total of 40mg daily.

Clearly this was too much for my system …

Like everyone else has testified, EVOO is a great multi-use product. I love it as an alternative all over body moisturiser, and its great at removing eye make-up including waterproof eyeliner whilst conditioning lashes (I think mine have become slightly longer since using this :). It's also a great pre-poo treatment or DC product for natural hair. A good cuticle moisturiser & great for …Read more

I really like this.
It's the only creamy moisturiser I'm currently using besides my natural oils (EVOO, Argan, Avocado & Macadamia butter) on my naturally coily hair.

This literally came to the rescue one day when I woke up so disappointed with the way my Afro hair felt after letting it air dry in twists with Shea butter & Jojoba oil applied.
My hair felt …
