1.0 out of 5 stars Stopped spraying after 1 use., August 14, 2014
Like the other reviewers mentioned, it stops spraying a mist after 1 use. Now it's spraying in a straight stream making it essentially unusable. Ugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic shampoo!, August 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have long straight, fine, color-treated hair. It tends to be oily at the roots & dry at the ends, so it can be hard for me to find something that moisturizes, doesn't strip the color, and doesn't make my hair feel lank. This (and the matching conditioner) totally fits the bill! Plus it lathers great (how without laurel sulfates? I don't know!) so you only need a tiny bit. All that plus it's cruelty-free. Awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, June 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I gave up coffee a month or two ago. I've done that, here and there, over the past few years. This time was really really rough. I was falling asleep in the middle of the day. Green tea, in place of it, wasn't cutting it. I started putting two tea bags in the water. Helped a little... but not much. Always the inevitable crash an hour or two later. I was drinking so much green tea throughout the day that it started getting ridiculous.

I had these packets from a while before and liked them (but I drank them when I was still on coffee... and mostly just on vacation to get my greens in). So about 1 1/2 weeks ago, I got some more and tried it. I'm seriously pretty blown away. I drink one packet in the morning and... that's it. I feel energy throughout the entire day.

I just looked up the caffeine content because I assumed it must have a lot for me to feel this way. 85mg, apparently. Less than a cup of coffee. I don't know what the heck is in there that makes me have nice steady energy throughout the day, but I like it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very cute dress, but see-thru, March 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I liked the dress a lot, but I had to send it back as it was see-thru. Granted, I got the white... but still.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice suit. NOT sexy, February 24, 2014
I thought this suit would look a bit sexier, but it's really not at all. I wear it when I want to look good, but modest. I've had this suit for about 3 years. It's held up well. I went to Mexico a couple of years ago, and brought this suit. I felt like someone's mom! (for the record, I AM someone's mom, heh, but still!). I ended up buying another suit while I was there.

Pros: Fits really well (I got the 10DD suit. My measurements are 38x29x39 (I'm a 34DD). I usually wear an 8 or a 10. I've gone up and down at least 10 pounds and still fit in this suit), modest, comfortable, great coverage, I think I probably look thinner, but I'm not sure.

Cons: TOO much coverage. Not a sexy suit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Endometriosis attack & early periods, February 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I took this for a few months (2/day, I believe. Possibly 3). During that time, I got my period 2 weeks early 3 times (and I have a very short cycle, anyway). I used to have endometriosis attacks, but since I got pregnant, 5 years ago, I hadn't had any. (that can happen... pregnancy can "cure" it or something).

During the time I took Maca, I had 2 endo attacks. (Very intense intestinal pain during my period that lasted about 2-5 days)

I didn't attribute ANY of this to the Maca for a while. I was 80% convinced I was going through menopause (I'm 41). I thought the endo had come back. I was having weird crying jags and I was getting really hot all the time. Hot flashes? My mom didn't go through menopause until her mid 50s, so I thought it was rather strange.

Then it occurred to me that it might be the Maca, so I researched it. The stuff I'd been experiencing was NOT in any of the literature I read about side effects. If anything, it was supposed to HELP with all of that stuff.

To experiment, I stopped taking Maca about 4 months ago. Everything has returned to normal. No more hot flashes, crying jags, endometriosis attacks, or early periods.

I'm curious to know if ANYone else has had this experience.

Pros: During the time I took Maca, my period cramps (other than the 2 endo attacks) were completely gone! My periods became lighter as well (in both color & volume). That was fantastic. Also, I had some very intense dreams, and that was pretty cool.

I also read that you can add Maca to a bentonite clay mask for enhanced results, so I've been adding a capsule to that (I HIGHLY recommend bentonite clay masks). To be honest, I can't really tell if it makes a difference, but I have a bunch to use up so I'll keep doing that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Usually good, but this time sent me sweetened Vanilla Chai flavor, January 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I order this regularly. Always the unsweetened/unflavored kind. And it's fine. This time, they sent me Vanilla Chai flavor, for some reason. It's too late to return it (didn't open until after 30 days was up). It's sweetened with Stevia, and I don't like it. Too sweet.

:(
