iHerb order - summer edition

While ago on vacation I got a package from iHerb and here's what I got:
Navitas Naturals Coconut Sugar - Fell into the Agave-trap and haven't really come accustomed to stevia yet, so I'm trying out coconut sugar as an alternative. But to be honest, while on the raw diet I haven't found an excuse to use any sweeteners but dates!
Sunfood Red Maca Powder - It's supposed to help with balancing hormones and body. I feel that my hormones are still out of wack and hoped this supplement could help. Unfortunately it tastes awful. Really. Ridiculously. Awful. The recommended dosage is 1 tablespoon, I've tried as little as a teaspoon or less and still I can taste it. It takes over everything! So I don't know really what to do with it when it makes my stomach make a back-bend... I will try making these though and maybe a bit more low-fat.
Now Foods Nutritional Yeast - My new addiction! I use this mainly in dressings and spread it over salads. A way of taking B12 without taking it as a "supplement". It gives a cheesy taste in pesto too!
Nubian Heritage African Black Soap - Now, hold it, I must admit, I haven't had the most perfect skin in about over a month now. I can't figure out if it's the summer heat, hormonal imbalance or just plain detox. What I do know is that it's not acne per say, but it does bother me to a point. I've heard many things about the black soap and with a pricetag of $3.37 I couldn't really say no. Did it help? Not really. Luckily it didn't get worse either. Now I use it for hands and shaving.
EcoTools EcoPouf Dual Cleansing Pad - It's cheap, it's Eco-friendly, it's dual and we needed something to wash ourselves in the shower in our summer cottage. I am liking it so much, that when the ones we got at home starts falling apart I will re-buy!
Sierra Bees Vanilla Lip Balm - If you go under freebies you'll find a bunch of stuff one of which will be lip balms. I choose the vanilla balm, that doesn't taste or smell much of vanilla but I like that it's all natural and doesn't use castor oil... and it's free!

Have you tried any of the things I bought, your thoughts?
Any purchases lately that you'd wanna tell me about?
Tell me in the comments below!
If you're thinking about shopping at iHerb and it's your first time I recommend you use this code: HWT271
It will give you $10 more to shop for on orders over $40 and up, or $5 off on smaller orders!
- If you live in Sweden I recommend staying below $45 (~300kr) to get away with customs!

Vad intressant att maca pulvret skall vara bra för hormonella obalanser, jag misstänker att jag också har en del obalanser inom den avdelningen så det skall bli intressant att höra vad du tycker om det!
