    Your right, only one way of knowing if I like it or not.

    By the way, thanks Tati for the edit. I finally figured out how to do multiply quotes.

    Oooh, I have to second the awesomeness that is DHC! I really like their scrub. Everyone loves St. Ives, but I tried that and thought the granules were far too large/coarse/sparse for the face, it didn't rinse off fully or exfoliate evenly. The DHC one has smaller granules, like sand, it rinses off completely, and because there are more little granules, I think it does a better job. (Although to be honest, mixing baking soda with your cleanser is more economical and does a better job than any commercial face scrub I've tried).

    Also they have these little strips you put under your eyes while you sleep - very moisturizing and do a good job reducing lines/circles/bags for a few days after you use them.

    I don't think it really matters - "virgin" has to do with it being made mechanically, not chemically, which I think is mostly important if you're going to be eating it. Extra virgin or extra light would only be better, I think, because they have more subtle scents. So if you're using it as a moisturizer, you won't smell like pasta.

    I didn't love the Olive Oil - because as dry as my skin gets, it can look really greasy too, the Q10 cream and Tocophoro E are my favs. I think I tried the eye strips a few years ago and it didn't do too much for me. Although I did like them one night when I did a spa night, glass of wine, bubble bath - it was the ritual thing.

    I need help with the dark circles under eyes. I have started to notice them, even though I sleep about 7 hours each night. I don't put concealer on, since I just think it makes it look worse. What is your go to product for this?

    Take a cup of sugar and mix 1/2 cup of virgin olive oil to make a wonderful body scrub... That's the only thing I use on my body.

    On my face & neck I only use Obagi skin care products.

    a friend of mine would use egg white, salt and honey as scrub. she puts it in the fridge and its good for a few days.

    Olive oil made my face inexplicably dry, red and painful. Perhaps I'm allergic although I have no issues with consuming the stuff.
