Love this stuff!

"I love this stuff! I initially took Sea Buckthorn because my hair was thinning dramatically and a friend recommended it to me. It was a pleasant surprise to not only find an improvement with my hair but also with my skin. The vitacost brand is excellent."

wasn't what I expected
 April 23, 2012
"I tried seabuckthorn and liked it. I had bought the brand name & it was expensive so I tried this one because it was way cheaper. It just wasn't the same. It was like a very thin liquid and the effects just weren't the same."
