Olive oil Liquid Soap 500ml
Olive oil Liquid Soap 500ml
Offered by OliveOilShed
Price: 6.40

4.0 out of 5 stars good soap,not to keen on the scent, 13 July 2014
the soap does not dry out my hands, and after each wash leaves them soft and protected ,and I use this soap for the past three weeks or so, the majority of liquid hand soaps I used do not have such positive impact on the skin.The soap however is full of chemicals, and its scent does not resemble that of olive oil at all! rather it reminds me of this funny scent of hotel/train station soaps: ) when one travels around Europe, the majority of them has had similar smell/scent , it bothered me initially but I got over it
ingredients:
Aqua( desminarelized water) sodium laureth sulfate, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamide dea, sodium chloride,olive oil, peg -7, gliceryl cocoate,peg-200, hydrogenated glyceryl palmate, propylene glycol,cocamide mea,parfum,olea europea( olive) leaf extract, methylchloroisothiazolinone,magnesium nitrate, methylisothiazolinone,magnesium chloride,limonene,linalool., there are also some numbers probably colors added.
I am not sure will buy this soap again, not only because it does not come cheap,( I am willing to pay more for good & beneficial things for our health) but will try to look out for rather natural soaps with minimum or zero chemicals if possible: )


Burzynski, the Movie - Cancer Is Serious Business (PAL)
Burzynski, the Movie - Cancer Is Serious Business (PAL)
Dvd ~ Eric Merola

5.0 out of 5 stars love the movie/documentary/commercial for Burzynski, 6 July 2014
love the movie/documentary/commercial for Burzynski.....whatever one calls it!: ) first of all it discloses perfectly that NO pharmaceutical company, health authority in the whole world( in this case US) cares about a patient, his/her well being /survival , terminally ill patients who should have especially well thought through therapies and consultations.All these companies care about is only MONEYYYYYYY! hey! very uplifting folks: ).then someone like Burzynski comes across, who uses in his clinic alternative methods or innovative methods of cancer treatment in his patients. He isnt just nobody coming out of nowhere, studied medicine, done his research and came to certain conclusions, in fact his discoveries and treatment are quite a positive revolution& noew on a medical horizon The evidence of survival rate is provided and I do not think for a moment that it is false or ungrounded.The numbers speak for themselves.It does not say or promises that all of his patients are, will be cured of cancer..it says that compared to standard chemo treatment offered regularly for cancer patients , usually very aggressive and full of side effects his method provided better outcome both in terms of life expectancy and survival as well as side effects post treatment. Burzyski semmes to have better success rate with difficult to treat and dangerous forms of cancer where standard medicine cannot do much or gives a patient rather gloomy outlook, then someone very ill turns to Burzynski as his/her last resort! many are cured not all, they pay , of course it is a private clinic, everyone else does it so why it is so strange and different with Burzynski?It is well known that traditional medicine & medical establishment does not believe in any alternative, new or herbal treatment which can takes longer to heal but produces the same or better results, without any harm or little harm compared to medications one needs to take, Burzynski naturally will be the enemy nr 1 of FDA and similar because what if???? his method will prove so successful that other standard methods etc will have to be stopped or reduced??how much of money will go to waste????Anyway to cut the chase: Burzynski's research, almost patented medications ( but never really acknowledged by FDA), all his lifetime of research and hard work is stolen by FDA and National Cancer Institute!just to be patented without any problems years later!! as if nothing happened , and under their name, Burzynski was nt able to fight enough , push himself and his business through the nets of corruption and mafia like connections present within higher ranks of FDa etc..disgusting to watch and sad the same time: people, scientists like Burzynski who genuinely wants to help cancer patients , has his work ethics in place are disregarded, trampled on, and removed from the limelight, God only knows how many more patents are wasted , cancelled, throw away just because they pose an obstacle to someones pockets!how many of them would eventually save someones life?... all in all: please watch the film and judge for yourself: ) I genuinely felt sick after watching the film, sick and angry because of so little disregard for human life, our health, pharmaceutical world is a jungle full of greedy and nasty people caring only for their pockets and positions,just like one the scientist from this film who said: under the capitalists sun nothing is sacred, in the meantime people die of cancer everyday.....

Miss Posh Womens Linen Striped Wide Leg Bottoms Pants Trousers - White - 14
Offered by LeSports Ltd
Price: 9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars quality pants, 5 July 2014
the pants are made of natural fabric which in the summer is a big plus!they are nice to touch,cool and soft, I am size 12 UK, 5ft 7''hight and not a typical hour glass, rather boyish type with no curves ,and this style suits me very well: ))) however pants are on a bit tighter side,I have bought size 14 ( taking also into account that natural fabric may shrink slightly after a few washes)and 14 fits just right!
they are also long, really long but as the previous reviewer said it is better to have them too long that too short : )))))
overall very pleased with the purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars good story,but too 'hollywood' sort of for me, 29 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: October Baby [DVD] (DVD)
I like the film but decided to give just 3 stars , that s : ok.the film touches upon the issues of abortion, which I oppose and I was & am against very strongly!there are good points such as couple of lines very well worth memorizing, for everyone going through difficult times in life ( as we all do often) , such as when a policeman says to the main character Hannah 'hate crime not the criminal' or when a catholic priest says to her at the church ' u have the power to forgive '.Then another positive thing : Hannah & Jason's relationship which starts very early on in their childhood and carry on into their adulthood,their friendship leads to teenage,slightly puppy love : ) but love which is pure, innocent and subtle,but also strong& commmitted( he witnesses some of her ongoing health problems & sticks for good and bad with her) a really good example for nowadays young people who for the most part missed & are missing the true beauty of it or shall I say the order in which love proceeds to its full bloom.
To me the weak point is not enough stress on the issue of abortion,and its consequences for everyone involved, somehow to me the painful subject of it just slides through out the film, and the other things and subjects steal the attention of a viewer.Of course the film concentrates and revolves around Hannah who is in her late teens so I assume the issue of abortion needs to be carefully assessed for it s weight and a teen to take it in, to deal with these issues.It is good that films as such are being made because the time came to really realize for humankind how tragic and dire in consequences abortion is! and frankly speaking a transgression of the one of The Ten Commandments: do not kill.So, here I am for me this is a weak point of the film, which being christian film originally does not underlines enough the issues of a mortal sin, and that abortion is just a massive killing of innocent lives, taking place everyday in every corner of the earth!and at some rare instances like in case of Hannah leaving some of its victims disabled or chronically health troubled for life ,it has also social implications as the murder called abortion robs our human society of its members,something worth pondering on , watching the film I am left with this impression as if the author does not want to upset too much the viewer, but he should!there is no an easy & light way to talk about this crime but to shake & to move.
Despite some of my reservation I would recommend this film especially to younger generation: )


Badger Balm for Hard Working Hands Certified Organic Concentrated Goodness 56g
Badger Balm for Hard Working Hands Certified Organic Concentrated Goodness 56g
Price: 6.83

5.0 out of 5 stars positive change visible!, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
so i too contribute my 5 star review: ) the balm works , have very dry hands due to taking certain medications and my general tendency to dry skin , tried many various hand/body creams/lotions etc....expensive, cheap but there was never really any positive and longstanding effect visible on the skin.Have bought this balm after reading many encouraging reviews.Now, myself tried the balm and can say : it works , quickly and effectively.what is more it stays on hands even after 2 hand washes!after the 2 nd wash I still can feel this protective layer of cream on my hands : ). skin looks visibly nourished ,soft and elastic, less wrinkled: )and this is only after 1 week of applying the balm!the tin itself is quite big and handy ( 56g/2oz), because this is a concentrated balm I use only small amount which goes a long way: ).The only thing I would like to point out is the smell: the scent of this particular balm( does nt apply to other badger products) isnt one I like a lot, this is due of course to herbal combination of the balm.all ingredients are natural and organic which is fab!however the scent is not very pleasant.what is the most important for me is that it does the job very well, for going out I may use other hand creams with slightly more agreeable scent : ) wholeheartedly recommend this balm to troubled skin, not only for hands , good for feet too .

Stonebutterfly Charles Ray Eames Style Organic Chair - Dark Grey - Qty: 1

4.0 out of 5 stars well made and comfortable chair, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was on a lookout for some nice, simple but first of all comfortable chair to sit on.and this particular chair has caught my attention after long search ( it seems that to find a good chair can also be a challenge), the chair is indeed very comfortable, it is wide ,soft furnishing, has just the right length and height and comfortable arm support, and the back of it leans slightly backwards.now, practically no assembly- only to screw metal frame with legs to the seat part, it is very comfortable for a healthy person, members of my family sat on it and everyone was very pleased how comfortable the chair is. I on my part, due to some lung problems and restricted mobility and breathing view this chair from slightly a bit different perspective; for me or anyone else with lung/breathing problems this bend or curvation can be bothersome,luckily for this chair the leaning backwards is quite tiny so overall i find the chair comfortable and would recommend this chair to everyone, including disabled people.: )


Medieval Clothing - Sleeveless Cotton Dress - Women's Costume - Natural
Medieval Clothing - Sleeveless Cotton Dress - Women's Costume - Natural
Offered by Elbenwald
Price: 29.90

4.0 out of 5 stars great dress for the summer : ))))), 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for some nice , simple and long summer dress and I came across this lovely medieval costume!!: )) it ticks all the boxes for me: it is made of natural fabric;cotton, it is simple in its design,long , and it is very comfortable to wear; ).
It has 2 large pockets ,one on each side of the dress and it is buttoned from top to toe : ), lovely.the only thing which in my view is missing hence 4 stars is some kind of button or pin or anything holding right at the waist where it needs most support ,the buttons are distributed in such a way that at the waist point there is none, I will have to sew something there : short velcro type zip or button or...will think about it : )))) size wise I am normally size 14-16 but bought XL in this range and it is perfect: it is loose and comfortable as it should be.the type of cotton used it quite thick, and after couple of washes the fabric may shrink slightly so there u go, the size. Really very satisfied with the purchase & would recommend it.
