4.0 out of 5 stars Strong colorant, great for making an anti-yellow toner., November 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This colorant sticks to my hair better than most brands, which works fabulously for toning down yellow in blonde air. After 2 weeks, I still have silver color in my blonde hair, while other direct dyes (and Shimmer Lights and L'Oreal Silver shampoos) are long gone.

I mix this with conditioner for a transparent weak dye and it still tends to turn blue-purple. It's really strong! Used at full strength, it should color most blonde hues a vivid orchid purple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ground as fine as you can get it! Fantastic quality and price., November 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
!This stuff is ground so finely it is almost like corn starch. That makes for the most amazing silky Burmese Tofu and chickpea bread. I have used Bob's Red Mill brand garbanzo bean flour, and it makes a much grittier product.

Spicy World's version is much cheaper per pound, and in my opinion is a superior product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non greasy, mirror shiny, baby soft hair., November 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works on fine, straight, thin (but very dry) hair. Scalp and hair gets clean, without feeling at all greasy. Also, you don't have to use as much product per use as the "Wen" system requires, so a bottle should last a while.

The shampoo reminds me of Noxema face cleanser, or cold cream; it feels a bit cool, and it cleanses, but isn't soapy. The scent is quite medicinal (with a strong hit of lemon grass) and it lingers, in case perfumes bother you. The conditioner feels like normal conditioner, but it rinses out better than most without a greasy feel.

My not-curly hair is chemically damaged, so it needs a lot of moisture to keep it from looking and feeling dry. Silicones in normal conditioner mask the problem for a while, but actually make the internal dryness worse. This set works much better, and doesn't just mask the problem with a coating of shine. My hair is shinier with this stuff than it ever was with silicone balms, mists, or conditioners, and much softer.

If your hair is extra dry, tangly, or has natural texture you want to enhance, I would suggest using a little bit of the conditioner in your towel dried hair for detangling and softness. The rinse-out steps do rinse out clean, so you may need that last "no rinse" step.

3.0 out of 5 stars Junior's sizing runs small, be warned., November 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wear a women's XS or S (size 4) and I bought the "large". It fits well through the bust, shoulders, and hips, but is a bit too generous though the waist if you're girly shaped.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thick, smooth, stretchy material. Cuffs and collars well sewn., November 5, 2014
I bought this to use as a Wednesday Adams costume, and it is just perfect. The sizing was spot on (check the measurement indicators the seller lists) and the fabric was heavy enough that it's not at all see-through or too panty-revealing.

My only complaint is that the shaping darts in the front are sewn badly. The top point of this dart should end at the apex of the breast, and it ended 2" higher than the underarm seam. (Not even a 14 year old has "girls" that perky! haha). I was able to re-sew this to make it less awkward looking.

The stitching for the cuffs and collar are well done and clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for masking the yellow. Doesn't wash away quickly., November 5, 2014
Turned my light yellow hair a more natural hue. I bleached my hair to remove red colorants, but still had some very pale (level 9 or so) orange and yellow. This toner is very strong, so do be careful to monitor it, especially if you have very light or porus hair. It can go extra blue-ish if you leave it on too long for your hair. I only needed 10 minutes, and nearly a month later, it's still keeping my yellow areas more neutral to ashy blonde.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought smaller amount to test it out, will be buying the gallon!, October 22, 2014
Anorexic dog takes this, and licks the bowl sparkling clean. My senior hound recently lost most of her interest in food (kibble, canned, puppy food, home cooked, you name it), and after making sure there was nothing obviously medical wrong with her, I still needed a way to get enough calories into her. This stuff works well! She loves it, just mixed with a little water to thin it out. It's the only edible thing she will lick the bowl for, and she makes sure to get it all. :)


Natural Balance Turkey Formula Dog Food Roll, 2.5-Pound

1.0 out of 5 stars Not at all close to the other log forumlas! Beware!, October 12, 2014
Much lower in calories than the other rolls of this brand, and filled with wheat flour. For example, the feeding guideline for a large dog on this log reads 3" of the roll if you're mixing it with dry food, and 6" for full-feeding. 6" is HUGE on this size log! The grain free versions are 3" per day for full feeding, or 0.75" for mixing with dry. 3/4" of an inch vs 3"? That's a lot of calorie light filler in there, and it's not cheap!

Also, the other rolls are grain free. This one is too full of cheap ingredients to be worthwhile... basically dietary sawdust to bulk it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for everything we've tried it on., September 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really great at sucking up leaves directly from rubber bark mulch and pea gravel if you're careful. The vacuum bag seems well built to me, but I haven't used it for more than a year yet.

The blower's multiple speeds are great. More than enough to blow sand out of the grooves of concrete or decking, and it'll blow dry leaves quite a ways. The only trouble you'll have is with wet sticky leaves; those don't move very well if they're stuck to stones, concrete, or mulch.

Easy to use. I suggest a heavy duty gauge extension cord if you need more than 50 feet of length. The power seemed to dwindle a bit using a medium-duty cord.

Quieter than gas powered blowers, by far, but still noisy. Not something you want to use at 5am on a weekend if you have neighbors, but it's a big step up from exhaust clouds and 2-stroke engine noise.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4th one purchased, September 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the 4th one of these our family has purchased. They now have fully replaced all of our other pitchers because these fit so well in the fridge door and can even be stored on their sides. They seal perfectly, so making powdered drink mixes or quickly icing hot tea is very clean and easy.

My favorite part: everything comes apart to be cleaned, and there are no tricky spots to scrub. The opening is big enough for even a large hand to get into. My only possible complaint is our white-plastic version looks dirty really quickly and can stain from cheap red food coloring.
