Somehow I've been missing out on this stuff all my life. I was browsing face masks on amazon and was immediately drawn in by the mint. This has kaolin and bentonite clay in it and it is amazing for oily skin. The spearmint gives it a nice tingly cooling sensation too, I was scared it was too strong at first but it doesn't irritate my skin at all. I like to follow up with hyaluronic acid serum and a leave on moisturizing mask like freeman cactus cloudberry water gel. My skin is so smooth and it feels cleaner.

Love it. My skin needs to be exfoliated regularly, but it's also very sensitive and easy to irritate. This is one of the only products that sands all my flakes off without causing little micro wounds in the process. The smell is not what I was expecting. Not bad, but definitely synthetic and there's nothing very oatmeal or honey about it. But I don't buy an exfoliator because it smells good, I want something that performs its main function. And this delivers. Love this brand.

I've started the Curly Girl method and this was one of the products a YouTuber used so I gave it a shot.I found this at Walmart. Comes in a huge 20 oz. tube for something like $4.00, so it was super cheap. The gel itself is clear and thick. There is a strong artificial odor that doesn't bother me, but it could irritate others. I love that this is alcohol and silicone free.After washing and conditioning my hair, I apply a leave-in conditioner to my wet hair, and then this product. I only use about a quarter-sized blob for my hair, which is just past shoulder-length. Smooth on with "praying hands" and then scrunch. Let air-dry to form the "crystal cast" and then "scrunch out the crunch". The packaging is basic and practical. I like that the tube is clear so you can easily see how much product is left. It stands on the cap, so the gel stays down where you need it to come out of the tube. The only thing I don't like is that you have to be careful or product will come out while you're unsnapping the cap and it may be more than you want to use. Not a big deal, though.This is strong enough to hold a curl but not heavy enough to weigh down my hair. For the amount you get, the price is rock bottom awesome. I like it and would probably repurchase, if I ever run out.

This is a staple for me, even when it's not winter (I'm a biology major; I wash my hands a lot in the lab and it dries them out). I use it on pretty much my entire body except my face, as it is a bit greasy. I do, however, use it on my lips. I personally like the smell. I do think it would be better in a tube as opposed to the jar, but that's just for sanitation purposes. I have not tried Palmer's, so I cannot compare them, but I will definitely try it to see which one I like better!

This stuff is pretty darn great for the ridiculously low price, and I highly recommend you give it a try. It smells strongly of lilacs and the packaging is basic, but I'm fine with that. I'm on my second jar. I use it once a week. First I wash my hair and towel dry. Then do a Olaplex 3 treatment. I rinse out the Olaplex, towel dry, and put on a keratin treatment (ApHogee TWO MINUTE INTENSIVE KERATIN RECONSTRUCTOR). I sit under my bonnet drier for 10 - 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. After towel drying I slather on a mix of Queen Helene Cholesterol, castor oil, argan oil, avocado oil, and camellia oil. I sit under my bonnet drier for 30 - 60 minutes then rinse thoroughly. Sometimes I put a towel on my pillow, put my hair in a pony tail and leave the cholesterol on all night before rinsing. It leaves my seriously damaged (bleached) hair soft, shiny, and bouncy instead of dry, brittle, dull, lifeless, and straw-like.On the con side: it does leave my hair "greasy" no matter how long and thoroughly I rinse. I'm sitting under the drier right now and I think I'll use my Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co–Wash after rinsing. Maybe a gentle co-wash at the roots will take care of that 'greasy" feel after using the Queen Helene.
