This worked well for my ultra-straight, refuses-to-curl hair. The only problem is I don't have a wide-tooth comb, so I wasn't able to comb out some of the crunchiness. My hair was pretty stiff! But, it worked. Usually curls fall out in the course of a couple hours with my hair--this lasted all day.

Wow, I'm really shocked by the bad reviews here. I use the entire Super Strength line for my long, thick, highlighted hair and it's the best product line I've used. One thing to always be kept in mind is to use a small amount of product because professional products are more concentrated. But anyway, I love this line for my hair! I've been using the treatment this week in preparation for my highlights, and my hair has never looked or felt better.

Ugh...WAY too sticky! Nice smell, though.

I used this pretty consistently for about 3 months and my skin always looked pretty good. I have struggled finding something to clear up my skin--it's not bad, but I've never had completely clear skin. This has been the best OTC kit I've found. Of course, being that I can't stick to one product, I moved on to Acne Free and have been regretting it ever since! I'll have to go back and buy it!
I've used this for a few weeks. It does instantly mattify my skin, but it doesn't last through the day. Initially, my pores seem smaller, but again, they seem to get enlarged thorougout the day. Not long-lasting enough for me.

I have not had the amazing experience everyone else has had...I'm certain it's cleaning my skin better than face wash alone, but I really haven't seen any improvement in my congested, acne-prone skin over 2 months. I'm bummed out, but I think it will be better for me in the long run, as far as exfoliation.

I just used this today and my hair is SO silky. I have also used Paul Mitchell Quick Slip and this makes my hair just a bit more silky. Love it!

This is a great product! My hair dries quicker, but it also adds light, flexible condition, tames flyaways and frizzies, and makes my hair very soft. As with all "professional" products, you only have to use a little bit. HG fo sho!

I really like this! I've been using it for months for my hair. I have very long, thick, straight hair that I blow dry every day, so I try to protect it. I DO use this with Paul Mitchell Quick Slip, so perhaps the softness of my strands can be attested to THAT. But, I think it does the job and it's cheap. Nexxus has something similar but I refuse to pay $15 for a spray.

I love this! Anything shiny/shimmery, count me in. It's pricier than a typical Revlon product, but it truly lives up to its name. I wear it with Bedroom Eyes and Diamond Lust, also in the same product line.

Well...you can't say the product doesn't deliver on what it says! It definitely gives you "bedroom eyes." The first time I applied it it was ALL over my face. I've since learned how to better apply it, but one could probably get the same results with regular eye shadow. The powder does give you a smoky look, and I love the color of the brown one--VERY black brown. I'm undecided on a repurchase.

I love love love these! I have platinum plaything (silver) and grab me gold...really, they're just tons of shimmer with light color. I haven't found a shadow as shimmery as these that isn't loose, and I'd rather have solid shadows--I have a tendency to spill! I'd definitely buy these again!

I totally love this! I don't know why other people don't. I was using the other one in a tube, and I HATE it when you have about half left and it's harder and harder to squeeze out. This, however, is much more convenient. I guess the only downfall is it doesn't have any SPF in it, but I love it!
Um...this is all right. It doesn't feel like it's completely clean-rinsing. My hair feels healthier from the Paul Mitchell regular Strength conditioner than from this.

I like this because it makes my skin feel smooth. I have a shiny forehead and it doesn't help that, but I haven't found anything that does. I put a lot of stuff on my face in the morning, like eye cream, BP, SPF, so I feel like this "holds it all on" and kind of seals my face from the environment. I may be completely wrong though! I don't feel like it does anything for my pores, and I don't have fine lines to speak of yet.
