This is a great moisturizing conditioner with protein in it. It doesnt weigh my hair down at all. I have fine hair but lots of it, and this smoothens it and feels like it makes it stronger. It smells fantastic too!! will def repurchase! :) It says to use after the k-pak reconstructor or alone, I have used it both ways with great success. Especially after the k-pak reconstructor thou may hair was especially soft!
I just received a sample and have used it for a few days in the mornings. It is great, it sinks in fast and doesnt leave me feeling greasy. I have just ordered full size. My skin is oily t-zone dry cheeks and very acne prone. I felt this didnt irritate my skin and was soothing and moisturizing enough for me. This is a no fuss moisturizer, that provides moisture and nothing else, simple as that. But for me to find a moisturizer that I love and doesnt clog my pores was difficult until I found this. Will def repurchase (unless I find something better.......)_ UPDATE: This is not moisturizing enough for me right now in the dead of winter, so Im using the Avenc Clean-Ac, its much richer and better for me right now. Will go back to this in the spring.
This is perfect for me as a brow and cheek highlighter. Its a beigey gold shimmer. My skin is dry in the winter so powder highlighters look cakey and flakey, this is sort of creamy and has the perfect consistency for me to work with over my foundation and on my eye area. so glad I found this, will def repurchase althou I Think its L/E! :(
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Natural Match haircolor [DISCONTINUED]

I purchased this in Dark brown ( natural). I wanted to cover up some of my faded orangey medium brown hair and this did the trick. My natural hair color is dark ashy/neutral brown. This doesnt feel damaging and the color is very natural. Dont bother with the conditioner they give you thou, its awful and really drying. I am going to try this in dark ash brown next time. What I love about this hair color the most is that it doesnt drip and I only had to leave it on for 10 mins since my hair is previously colored and porous, quick easy and great results! :)
Powders -The Body Shop - Lavender Facial Blotting Tissues

These are not as good as the clean and clear ones. But they are still pretty good. With the clean and clear sheets I only need 2, with these ones I need 3 or 4 per use on my entire face. I only purchased these because they do not contain powder or mineral oil ( like the clean and clear) they smell pretty too and have not caused any irritation or breakouts. Will keep these on hand in my purse at all times , for when my T-zone gets oily near the end of the day.
Bottom line: This is not a miracle product and will not zap zits or clear blackheads overnight or in a matter of days for that matter. I use this as a preventative measure . I put it on my whole face nightly and it feels great, it doesnt sting or burn and comforts the skin from any redness. In the morning my skin looks plump and has a glow. I think it just soothes my skin and helps my blemishes calm down. Will definitely repurchase.
My roots are normal/oily and the rest of my hair is dry ( dry ends) , fine but lots of it. It is curly but I wear it straight. This may sound weird but I use a different shampoo to wash my roots and this for the rest of my hair because its soo moisturizing, my hair feels and looks great. Its a rich shampoo and it does lather great once you have it and massage it into your hair and scalp. This is perfect for damaged dry hair colored hair, it wont strip and is very gentle. I find that If I wait too long to wash my hair then this doenst clean well enough, but for frequent washes its PERFECT! :)
I like that this does not weigh down ( make flat) my fine but lots of hair. It also makes it really soft and pretty smooth. I took off one lippie because it doesnt add any moisture which I need for my dry ends, so I need to apply an extra serum to my ends after flat ironing (which I apply biosilk) Overall pretty happy :)
I have been using dervish for years and needed something a bit darker and more brownish. This fits the bill perfectly, it is a brownish rose color (without any orange) and I can wear it alone with some chapstick or with my pink, berry, and neutral colored lipsticks. It makes my lips look full and is about 2 shades darker than my natural lip color. Love it , this will be my new staple along with dervish (which is more of a lighter pinkish mauve) :)
This is a light creamy floral with a soft sexy musky vanilla drydown. IMO this is the younger prettier version of JPG classique ( which I liked but found too old ladyish for me, im 28 btw) This is just so "me", soft and pretty with some warmth sweetness and sex appeal. its my current HG. The bottle is awful , way too bulky but who cares since I love the juice so much. My bf said I smelled really good when I wore it and he has a very finicky nose, so Im very happy about that! :) UPDATE: Im finding this a bit too sharp and sweet on me, I have since moved on to kenzo amour which I love and also has vanilla in it.

I bought 2 bottles of this while in florida for 3.50 each! what a steal! I LOVE the body wash and especially the comforting delicious smell. Its very moisturizing, sinks in quick and isnt sticky or greasy. This is my HG as of now. If you like the body wash and the scent, than you will def love this!!
I put some on this morning , and 5 hours later it still smells amazing!! Too bad this was D/C its a beautiful warm fragrance.
Cleansers -Boots - Botanics Moisturising Deep Clean Foam
Angeldoll 7/6/2007 1:27:00 PM
My acne prone sensitive skin is becoming dryer and dryer partially due to tretinoin treatment and zit creams. so I decided to switch to this cleanser as it says it is moisturizing, so far so good, I am impressed! It cleanses very well and doesnt leave me overly tight or dry. Its not super moisturizing but good enough for now. not hg and I feel it could brighten more so I give it a 4.....will update....... UPDATE: I am loving this, its perfect for me doesnt irritate or leave me all tight and dry and no breakouts. This is my HG for now, I havent found a better cleanser than this.....yet. UPDATE #2: It is now february dead of winter and this cleanser is too drying, will use in warmer months only. I am using aveeno and avene cleanser instead now.
Hair -Unlisted Brand - Raquel welch clip in extensions
Angeldoll 6/21/2007 12:58:00 PM
These are fabulous! Ive been getting extensions on and off for years and didnt want to commit to it anymore, plus it was thinning/damaging my hair. These clips ons are great for a night out or special events, I love them!! they are 18" dark brown but I highlighted them using bleach with 20 vol. to a lighter golden brown to suit my own hair. IF you dont straighten them they go wavey. Texture and quality is super. 200 bucks but will last a long time!
LOVE this its my current HG! ITs a warm sexy skin scent. Me and my bf love it. Dries down to a lightly floral vanilla which is alluring and cozy at the same time. It mixes great with my chemistry, Im so glad I found this, I wear this during the day and night when I want to feel sexy and confident.
