Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub-invigorating- OIL FREE

Invigorating is right, this really leaves the face feeling refreshed! This is my HG scrub for my combo skin. Highly recommend.
Smells like a lovely garden wet from the rain at first. What is that note that "almost" ruins this scent? It doesn't linger either. You only have to wait about 5 minutes upon spraying yourself before the scent fades into obscurity.

Smells wonderful, kind of a soft, crystal sugar and light lavender scent. I really love to spray this on my bed. It doesn't linger the way I need it to. Lingers on my skin for about 4 minutes before I can't smell a thing. Very disappointing for such a pretty scent. Hmmm, maybe I should try layering it....
Lotions/ Creams -California Baby - Calendula Cream

This stuff is beyond amazing! My daughter had a very dry, itching, flaky scalp. After the first application her scalp improved dramatically. Second application, her scalp healed completely. No more itchy, dry, flaky, scalp. I highly recommend this product!
This really has an "interesting" scent. I mean, really, you will be smelling this for days after application. If you're into particularly strong, rancid, coffee mixed with chocolate and smoke odors, you'll enjoy it, otherwise it's a headache. I put this in my little girl's hair and was embarrassed to take her outside. It most likely will give the desired results after a few uses, I just don't think the weird scent is worth it. As far as results go, it may be awesome for someone with severely damaged hair.... if you can deal with the odor.
Love this conditioner. It works great! Gives my hair strength and moisture, smells pretty good. Detangles a bit, definitely makes the hair feel nourished. May work well for most hair types. Definitely recommend.
I mean, this is okay. From the reviews on Amazon you'd think this is THE product to have. Sure, it makes the hair a bit soft, does smell pretty good, gives a twinge of moisture, but nothing like I need. My dry hair cries out for something a bit more nourishing. I won't buy this product again but I'm sure someone with less coarse hair will get their money's worth.
This is an excellent leave-in for my bra-strap length, dry, coarse relaxed hair. My search for a product that will leave my hair moist and healthy looking is over. I will switch this up with a lighter product every once in a while but I will try to always have a bottle of this available.
I've tried many of CD's products. It seems they all have an intolerable smell and are not effective in keeping the hair moist and nourished for very long. I really wanted to like this. I use it in my little girl's hair for twist and braids and it doesn't do what I need it to do (moisture, nourish, shine) for the price. More money down the drain.
Smells like Pepto, lemon, milk, and mint. It's an okay product, does make the hair shiny and healthy looking... but only for a few hours. I can't say it makes me or my little girl's hair feel too nourished. I'm going to continue searching for the product that will because this isn't it.
This stuff stinks. It doesn't hydrate the hair at all and is a weird consistency. I have not been happy with any of the CD products I've tried and I've really tried hard to enjoy this stuff because I like the idea. Save your money ladies!
Conditioner -Suave - Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner

I use this conditioner every once in a while to co-wash my dry hair. It's great! Smoothes out the hair and gives great moisture. I also use this in my 6 year old daughter's hair, it really detangles her mega-curly hair unlike anything I've ever tried! I love this stuff and refuse to be without it. Definitely recommend for dry and coarse hair!
I love GlossBlossom! I have 2 in the shimmer shade. It's the perfect shade of pinkish gold, I believe it would look well against any skin tone. Definitely recommend. So happy to have found it:)
Lip Treatments -Alba Botanica - Pineapple Quench lip balm

FlameKitty took the words right out of my mouth. I tried this lip balm for a bit then I went running back to Chapstick Naturals. You'd think with all those wonderful ingredients there would be no issue with peeling and chapping... guess again! Seconds after application your lips will become irritated and chapped. The smell is a bit much but I could suffer through it if this product was of better quality. The only satisfying thing about this balm is the tube it came in, save your money.
