If the smell werent so strong I may be able to use this enough to see how I like it! Smells like the parfume Sunflowers, which is ok, but too strong for a hair product. I can't really remember how the product worked because I had such a headache by the end of the day I had to wash my hair twice! I will try mixing this with something else to cut down the smell. People with sensitive noses shouldn't bother with this product.
Hair Styling Tools -Sedu - Ionic Ceramic Professional Flat Iron (Original)

This has been the best flat iron by far that I have ever owned, and trust me when I say I have owned and tried a lot! I got mine online and paid $125.00. I have had the same one for over 2 years, and it still works great. I have long naturally curly hair which is also coarse, and used to be a real pain to straighten, until I got this flat iron. I got the 2" plate model, so now It only takes me about 45 min instead of well over an hour to do my hair with this. I probably could cut the time down if I was in a hurry but I am very picky when I straighten my hair. I also like the very long cord that this has, and the temperature control dial, it's easy to get to. With this iron and the Matrix Sleek Look products I can get my hair super straight. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a flat iron.

One of the best things I've ever used after straightening my hair. I spray a little mist on my hand or on my brush to work it into my hair, either way works for me. You dont need much of this product! It will leave your hair greasy looking if you use too much, so use as little as possible. It may be a bit expensive for the size of the bottle but it really does last a long time. I love it!
This is an absolute must for me when I straighten my hair. I have naturally curly, long, thick, frizzy hair, but you'd never know it because this stuff works great. A little bit goes a long way with this, I noticed if you use too much it can leave hair a little greasy looking. I use the whole Sleek Look line when I straighten my hair, and I love it!

I too found that this weighed my hair down, I then tried to use less and that seemed to help a lot. I love this for a detangler, I can't get my wide tooth come through my mop without this stuff. It smells strong at first, fruity I guess, but it wears off pretty quick. I'd recommend the less is more saying when using this product, as it can weigh down the hair, and can make your hair seem a little oily. I still use it, just very carefully :) EDIT: I had to quit using this stuff, it started to weigh my hair down no matter how much i used, wont buy again

I love the smell of this stuff! But I hate to say it didn't do wonders for my hair, although it helped in the detangling, it didn't really do much for my curl shape, maybe it was because I used it alone, or my hair was so long the last time I tried it, I'm not sure, but I will try it again sometime. The price was a bit much for this too, only because I have to use more of it on my hair, oh well better luck next time!
Another TRESemme product I like, with having longer curly hair it's hard to find a product that can give my roots a boost, and last all day! I use this when I straighten my hair too, and I like it a lot! It's a good price too, because a little bit goes a long way for me, so I'd buy it again.

I have been using this product for years, and I love it! It doesnt weigh my hair down like some of the others I have tried, and it lasts all day. Works well in the humidity too, I will continue to use this as long as they make it.
I had the same problem as other reviewers with this product the first few times I bought it, it was too dark, but I finally found the shade that works for me, Im a natural medium dark brown, almost black at the roots, I use the Maple Brown color, and it works great on me, finally a color that doesnt turn jet black on my hair!
I didn't care for this much, I used to use it a long time ago, it was ok then but I think they may have changed to formula or something. They really should make a different brush for this mascara, my lashes do not look great with this stuff.
This is my everyday mascara. I have tried a ton and this one is the only one that didnt get flakey, and it comes in water proof, which is a big deal to contact wearers! I don't know that it gives me a ton of volume but it makes my eyelashes look nice so it works for me.
I'm not typically a bronzer wearer, since I'm always afraid I will look orange, but this one caught my eye one day, and now I use it all the time. I like that this doesnt have a ton of shimmer in it, (I sometimes use this with my Maybelline blush which has enough shimmer in it so I don't need any extra), The only major complaint is the packaging, it sucks to be honest. My lid broke after I twisted it on tightly, the powder itself broke after carrying it in my makeup bag one time. So I just used a empty Bare Minerals container and put the broken powder in it, works fine now and it's smaller to carry in my makeup bag. If they would change the packaging it would be great, but I'd still buy this again.

I love this blush! I never use to wear blush, but I saw this and decided I wanted to try it. I wear this with my bronzer and I love the way they look together. I will definately be buying this again, the one gripe, the lid, the lids always seem to break off on Maybelline products, oh well, it's not enough to make me want to stop using this.
I love Tree Hut's body scrubs, but this one is a little to strong of a smell for me, it gave me a headache almost instantly, smells a bit like cherry cough syrup. But Im sure it does work great, but I prefer the Brazillian Nut more.

I love this!!! I am allergic to nut's so I can't typically use any scrubs with nut extracts in them, but for some reason I seem to do fine with this stuff. It smells so great, and they give you a ton for your money. I buy this all the time :)
