Hey you guys! So, I decided to come back and visit the blogger world for a while. I've been gone for a while but now I'm back! lol Moving on... I know this product is not so much a "beauty" product but it does have health benefits and we all know that taking care of your body and watching what you put in it can effect things like your skin and hair which in turn has beauty benefits. So yes, Health and beauty go hand and hand. Do you think maybe that's why they have their usually partnered up at department stores? Hmmm... I'm thinkin' so!
Enter: Barlean's Organic Oil's Omega Swirl Flax Oil. I actually got this product from a Klutch Box I received last month. I believe I paid 16 dollars or so for the box (similar to a birch box or glambag only the products are health related) and they sent me a full size bottle of this stuff. I looked it up and it retails for $20 dollars or so, depends on the retailer. So I believe I got a pretty good deal!
I'm not too sure if I like the taste. I take that back, I do not like the taste. Maybe that's because I bought these things called "slim shots" a few months back to lose weight (though I know that is not the best way to go about it but, yeah) and they tasted AWFUL so I tossed them. They had palm oil and some other oil and I'm thinking flax oil must have been one of the oils because it tasted just like them dang things. The bottle I have IS flavored with Strawberry and Banana so that helps, a little. I have tried taking them straight but then I have to have a chaser. haha. By that I mean juice or even water helps but I am so not a fan of the taste. I tried it in my oatmeal this morning and it wasn't that bad that way. My oatmeal already had a cinnamon flavor added to it so it helped dilute the flavor of the flax oil. I could still taste it a bit, I just tried not to think about it.
Over all I think it is a good product. I take this daily because I am not a big fan of fish therefore my body could really use the omega3 that I am depriving myself of. The flavor is a little too much for me to bare at times but its much better with that flavoring than the flax oil by itself. I will definetly purchase another bottle once this is all gone. Now, I want to try it out on my 4 (going on five)year old son and see how he reacts to it.
