HG styling product!! I have long, highlighted hair that is fine. This works perfectly for me. I have used countless products and this is my favorite by far. I typically use it after drying my hair, just smooth it on a couple drops and it removes and it makes my hair super healthy/shiny looking. Never weighed down and won't cause any hairs to stick together and make hard to brush out later on. Over time this stuff won't dry your hair out like some styling products do. Mad love for this wonder product!!!
I did 6 peels and was really pleased with my results around my 3-4 one. It did not remove my brown spots but overall it greatly improved my skin tone. I will have to say at the beginning I was super careful about not using any harsh products in between the treatments. After about my 4th peel though I got lax and started using all my usual products, some of which included glycolic and lactic acids and benzoyl peroxide, etc. I would not recommend this, however, because eventually my skin started to look pretty dull and it turns out I think I was using too harsh of products and not giving my skin a chance to heal after the peels. If you have acne, I would spot treat ONLY, and otherwise use only the SkinMedica sensitive cleanser, TNS recovery cream, and sunscreen.
I love this product because it amazingly is the only product that has cured my chapped lips. Once I started using this on a regular basis I have seen a huge improvement in the moisture factor of my lips. I no longer have to exfoliate all that chapped dry skin off my lips all the time. Amazing! A++ for that alone!!!
This product can clump, be a pain to apply and run down your face if your eyes water the slightest bit. On the other hand, when applied just right, this is the ONLY mascara I have ever worn and had multiple, not just one, complements on how my eyes looked. One was from my husband who would not notice if I came home without a limb one day.
I love this product, it does a great job detangling my hair. I have fine, very long and highlighted hair and it is a nightmare to detangle after I wash it. I think this does a very good job with protection during heat styling as well. I just got Heat Glide and will be interested to compare to this one. In the past I've always relied on Ciment Thermique or Nectar Thermique, and I would say I can use all three of these interchangeably and still be able to heat style once in while without having a head full of split ends the next day.
Love this mask! I have long, highlighted hair and this stuff really improved the health of my hair. This is at the top of my list for treatment products right now, it is even working better for me than Masquintense. I love the slip of this stuff and for the first time my hairdresser commented on the improved health of my hair and the only product I had added recently was this. So far so good with this one!!
My stylist recommended this product for detangling and as a leave-in moisturizer. For heat protection she said it would be good for blow drying but not strong enough for flat iron protection. Since she said that I basically do not rely on it all for heat protection, because my hair is fine, highlighted and prone to heat damage. But I love this for its detangling abilities. I have a nightmare of a time with tangles and this stuff helps me comb through damp hair without pulling and damaging my ends. It doesn't ever weigh my hair down or make it greasy. I think I will repurchase it, even though I guess I'm really only using it for one, maybe two of the ten things that it says it does.
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Ribbons Body Wash with Jojoba Butter Ribbons

I did not like this product because it comes out in purple globs. It also led to my shower drain clogging. Perhaps it moisturizes, and maybe even cleans the skin but I prefer Nivea's Touch of Happines. A shower cleansing gel that really does make me happy.
I could write raving reviews for a lot of Kerastase products right now, but this one in particular stands out for me. I have had a very hard time finding a lightweight serum that worked. This one is perfection...it never weighs hair down or makes it sticky and coated. I don't have a problem with greasy hair. It makes my hair look healthy and polished in a natural way. Absolutely the only serum I will put on my hair.
LOVE this stuff. It really works. I have just gone ahead and started using all Kerastase products. It has helped my hair so so much. And although the products are expensive, I am actually spending less money than before. Previously I was buying so many hair products out of desperation for my weakened, dry hair and NONE of them were helping me at all.
I love this! It has a pretty high zinc oxide level,14.5% I believe, and it does help prevent my hyperpigmentation just fine. I actually use it on my face only and it has not caused any breakouts or clogged skin. It does go on white but it fades. I love that it does not interfere with my foundation like avobenzene suncreens. Most of all I LOVE that it is easily available and cheap. Previously I was using Shiseido's Ultimate Sun protection but I was having a hard time finding it. Turns out this is working just as well if not bettter at a quarter of the price. Great value!
I did not find that this product whitened at all. I followed the instructions but found it did nothing. I will not buy again and think I am going to throw away the one I bought. Waste of money.
Moisturizers -Olay - Total Effects 7-in-1 Mature Skin Therapy

I am reviewing the Total Effects moisturizer with the pump that says it is for women reaching menopause. I am not in menopause yet, but I bought this because I was actually looking for a moisturizer without suncreen since I already wear a pretty heavy duty ss. Also to those who follow Paula Begoun's advice, she has this on her best ss-free moisturizers' list. Anyhow, this was $19.00 at CVS, and I think that was a sale price.I really love it. It comes in a pump that so far works great. It is not greasy nor heavy but it is moisturizing my skin perfectly. I have no idea if it will cure/prevent any aging signs as I haven't used it long enough, but as far a moisturizer it is great. It really improves the overall look of my skin. I've had no issues with the scent, there is one and its not like it is great or anything but it is not bothering me. Before this I was using Olay Complete for Sensitve skin SPF15 and I liked that but find this product is doing a better job for my skin. Olay moisturizers have thus far not broken me out.

I did not expect much from this stuff. I've always figured tinted moisturizer would not cover enough of my very flawed complexion. Well, I have to say I am very very impressed with this product. It does cover! And it doesn't leave me all shiny. It leaves me matte, in a good way. I love the finish and texture. Great!!

Great self tanner! Very realistic color. I apply this exactly as instructed and end up a beautiful color with no streaks or blotchy color. I am not a fan of all of Paula's products but I love this stuff!
