Mish Reviews The Vitamix 4500 Two-Speed Blender

September 16, 2011

"My Vitamix blender is one of the best purchases I've ever made. For the past several years, I have been on a quest to lose weight and clean up my diet. I'm proud to say that after taking up running and eliminating processed foods, I've lost 85 pounds! Besides looking better, I feel fantastic, and that is largely because I incorporate fresh, natural foods into my diet every day."

"Like the Q Brothers, I start each day with a green smoothie. The energy it gives me is amazing. Once you try smoothies made from fresh greens and fruit, you will never go back to heavy, starchy breakfasts like bagels and cereal. But it's great for more than just smoothies. Vitamix blenders make it easy to live a processed food-free life. I make my own hummus, soups, nut butters, and sauces. I have even made ice cream from frozen bananas. Almost anything you can buy pre-packaged can be made in a Vitamix. Just read the ingredients and experiment! Avoiding chemical flavorings and preservatives and eating whole, delicious foods every day has allowed me to live a much healthier, happier life. If you want the same thing, I encourage you to to invest in a Vitamix blender. They're worth every penny."

"St. John's Wort blooms on the summer solstice - the feast of St. John the Baptist. It is the day of the year with the most light, hence the nicknames "Liquid Light" or "Light of the Soul". St. John's Wort may be paired with other flower essences, such as Angelica for protection, Love Lies Bleeding to transform pain to love, or Borage for optimism. St. John's Shield is also an excellent balm for tissue repair. Apply it to the heart area to lighten mood and bring peace to the spirit."

May 19, 2011

"I've had two sinus surgeries and I have been "blessed" with sinus problems for my entire life. I have used every steroid spray on the market for years every year I'd still get bronchitis. I started using Sinusin shortly after I began working with Merz Apothecary. It's been seven years now, and I haven't come down with bronchitis once! I know my body and I can tell when infection is looming. Sinusin truly works to help my body get rid of infection and keep any other symptoms at bay. It's a proven anti-viral and the combination of homeopathic ingredients relieve nasal congestion. Thank you Sinusin - I love you!"

No greasy feeling, (a huge plus!) and you can't go wrong with the superb ingredients - aloe vera, borage oil and shea butter. "
- Kelly, Sales Associate

Miha Reviews Nature's Way Organic Coconut Oil

If, like me, you've ever had unpleasant feelings from taking a synthetically manufactured multivitamin on a somewhat empty stomach, you'll understand why whole food supplements that can be taken on a totally empty stomach are superior."

Mish Reviews Mineral Fusion Cool Concealer Duo

May 10, 2011

"I will admit, I have a weakness for makeup. I love how a fresh, beautiful eye or lip color can brighten my otherwise pale face. At the same time, I know that many cosmetics can have an adverse effect on the skin, so these days I'm very careful about what I use.  I am really pleased with this concealer from Mineral Fusion. First of all, I love that you get two colors in one. I use the lighter shade on my eyelids as a shadow base and the darker shade if I have blemishes I want to conceal. Secondly, I can tell it's going to last a long time. Because mineral makeup has no talc or other fillers, you only have to use a tiny amount. This concealer lasts through the entire day until I remove it at night. It's great to know that I'm using a product that's actually good for my skin and that makes me feel pretty, too!"

Mike Reviews Nasopure

April 25, 2011

"Nasopure is wonderful for those with sinus problems or allergies, but I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from using it. I don't have chronic sinus issues, but I still make it part of my morning ritual. It makes me feel like I just stepped out of the ocean. I can't even remember the last time I had cold symptoms. The plastic bottle is easy to use - it just takes a few minutes in your morning shower. Nasopure contains a buffered salt solution which is gentler on the nose tissue than Neti pot salt. And it's convenient, too. You don't have to mix a salt solution every time; just empty one packet into the bottle and it lasts about a week."
- Michael Winter, Registered Pharmacist & Co-Owner

Mike Reviews Jack Black Cool Moisture Body Lotion

April 18, 2011

"I love to be outside. If I'm not on the golf course, I'm in the garden, riding my bike or just sitting on the deck. I should use sunblock more than I do, but when my skin feels like it's been abused, Jack Black Cool Moisture Body Lotion is my choice. It's lightweight, non-greasy and super absorbent. I use it on my face and all over my body. It soothes, cools, moisturizes and penetrates to help rejuvenate my skin.

Claudio Reviews Por Homme Men's Ultra-Slim Clipper

March 30, 2011

"When I first saw this clipper I thought it was a joke. Twenty-nine dollars for a clipper that can't possibly last for more than a few uses? And stronger ones sell for a fraction of the price. But when I tried it, I was really surprised. Not only is it really sharp, but it's strong enough to cut my toenails, too. It takes a minute to get used to it, but it's by far the best clipper I've ever tried."

Dave Reviews Traditional Medicinals Organic Green Tea with Ginger

March 14, 2011

"This tea is organic, so no pesticides or unnatural fertilizers get between you and your green tea. It is fair trade certified, so you know the people who grew your tea were paid a fair wage. The company uses pharmacopoeial grade herbs, so you are getting your full amount of antioxidants and EGCG."

"I drink one or two cups of this tea every day at work. It tastes great and the small amount of caffeine keeps me going throughout the work day. We carry a pretty great selection of green teas but I like this one best for the combination of the great taste, low price, convenience and high quality. The only drawback is it takes 10-15 minutes to steep, so I suggest using a travel mug so that it's still piping hot when it's ready to drink."
- Dave Taitelbaum, Customer Service Manager

March 10, 2011

Eric Reviews Herbalind Glycerin Hand Cream

February 24, 2011

"As the receiving manager, I check in every product we sell on Smallflower.com. And since we carry over 13,000 unique products, I have to open up a lot of boxes. And when I say, “a lot of boxes,” I mean, a LOT of boxes. My hands pay a heavy toll dealing with rough cardboard all day. On top of that, our business is based in Chicago, and though I love the Windy City, the wind blows cold and dry. There have been days where I’ve looked down at my poor cracked palms and wondered if they were molting. As much as I dislike my hands feeling like sandpaper, I find most hand lotions just make my day-to-day activities frustrating. It’s hard to type when my hands feel greasy or creamy."

"I was pretty excited when on a whim I tried Herbalind’s Glycerin Hand Cream and recovered my hands’ original beauty. It didn’t leave a film on top of my skin like other lotions, but was absorbed underneath, so that my hands didn’t feel dry or overly moist. The freedom to move my fingers without fear of cracking my skin was once again mine. The long-lasting quality of the product means that I don't have reapply it a thousand times a day and its non-offensive scent only adds to this great product. Vitamins A and E, silicone and of course glycerin are part of Herbalind's hand cream's natural ingredients. Most importantly though, it really works."

Brian Reviews Greens Today Original Superfood Formula

February 15, 2011

"This product is best taken in the morning, or any time some healthy energy is needed. I love mixing it with chocolate almond milk - the extra protein makes a wonderful shake. Great taste and very satisfying. Green veggies and grasses, probiotics, co-enzymes, antioxidant and immune-boosting herbs, and 1,500mg of Spirulina and 2,000 mg of broccoli powder per serving - wow! And did I mention it tastes great? Be creative - try some fruit or honey to sweeten."

Joe Reviews New Chapter Cordyceps

February 9, 2011

"I started taking New Chapter Cordyceps after I started running a while back. I've always hated the winded feeling and chest pain that would accompany long distance running. I began taking these twice daily and noticed and immediate improvement in my stamina. I also feel like I've been shot out of a cannon when I arrive at work in the morning, and the feelings of late afternoon fatigue also seem lessened. Cordyceps are also great for your immune system. Like all New Chapter products, they are organic and eco-friendly."

Lori Reviews Duchess Marden Anti-Wrinkle Serum

February 7, 2011

"This chemical-free serum gives my skin a healthy, dewy glow. Rose is one of the most precious oils on the planet. It takes over 2000 rose buds to make just a few milliliters of oil. This serum contains rose oil, passing on all of its amazing properties to us. Rose helps to repair and balance the skin. It is rejuvenating and nourishing. It's good for all skin types; dry, mature, normal, as well as oily and acneic. There really is no better ingredient for the skin; in my opinion anyway."
- Lori Gorcyca, Store Manager

February 2, 2011

"For anyone concerned with the ingredients in their everyday soap, this is as clean as it gets: olive oil, shea butter, vitamin E and honey. This soap comes in Meyer Lemon, Olive and Lavender. It's super moisturizing and very good for your skin. Plus, it smells great and is packaged very nicely. "

Mish Reviews Flor-Essence Rejuvenating Cream

February 1, 2011

"This great-smelling cream contains the same herbs and flowers used in Flor-Essence Purification Tea, so it only makes sense that it has a purifying effect on my skin. I love that every last ingredient is natural. It's thick and rich, yet it disappears into my skin, giving it an instant healthy glow. Plus, it has faded old acne scars I had on the sides of my face. Anyone considering microdermabrasion or other drastic measures should try this cream first. And it's reasonably priced, too. One thing to remember: don't apply it near your eyes. My skin is not super-sensitive, but the high herbal content made my eyes water."
-Mish Aiello, Editor

Dave Reviews Traumeel Ointment

January 23, 2011

"Traumeel is one of the best kept secrets for athletes. It's safe, so anyone can use it as often as necessary. If you're someone who works out 3-5 times per week save yourself some money and get the larger 100g size. If you are more of a weekend warrior, the 50g size will probably suffice."

"I run regularly; having completed 5 marathons and dozens of 5ks, and due to the sheer number of times my feet hit the ground I've twisted my ankle more than a few times. The combination of homeopathic ingredients heals these types of sprains very quickly so I didn't even miss a workout. I've also used Traumeel for back muscle pain due to overdoing dead lifts at the gym and I was back to normal within a week. You can also combine it with Traumeel tablets for an inside-outside approach to heal what ails you."
