Smells delicious!

"Carotene is vitally important for your eyes and skin. Compared to Solaray Food Carotene (25000 IU), which isn't available here at Vitacost, this product seems to be similarly potent if I take the same dose (ie 3x the pills). The price is about the same per dose. I do love that this product smells fresh, like I have a box of vegetable goodness!"
