First off, the packaging is wonderfully well done. I loved the use of dark colors that portrayed calming power as well as a touch of elegance. The plastic bottle was painted black, making it impossible for light to get in, but also making it impossible to see how many capsules were left without opening the bottle. The label was a simple gray color, with white lettering and pine-green accents. There was a warning section on the far right side of the label, and a simple ingredient list and recommended usage on the far left side. After I had finished admiring the bottle, it was time to examine the actual product! I unscrewed the child-proof cap and peered inside.
I was very surprised to see that all of the softgels were stuck to the side of the bottle. Perhaps this was due to the softgels sticking together due to the heat in transit. I stuck my finger into the bottle to see if the softgels had melted or exploded, but it just seems like they had gotten warm and stuck to each other. There was no cotton ball that you sometimes find in the bottles of capsules, so maybe that’s why the capsules were all bunched together. I fished one of the capsules out and examined it. The softgel was extremely soft and squishy. I squeezed the softgels firmly, fully expecting it to explode between my fingertips, but was stunned to see that despite the soft and spongy feel, these softgels were extremely resistant to pressure. I’d tried this squeeze test on another product and within a few seconds of pressure, the entire capsule had popped. This was not the case with these! After I’d finished examining the capsule, I popped it into my mouth and found that the capsule was very easy to swallow.
