Hair -Kiehls - Hair Conditioner and Grooming Aid Formula 133

I started using this as a conditioner and I was blown away how soft it left my hair. Even gave me some added weight. It might be too much for my medium textured hair as a leave-in, but I do get a little shine and it rinses out clean. Not too bad.
While it is a beautiful shade, this works best as a highlighter for me. As an eyeshadow, it barely showed up. I had to put shadowy lady in the creases to bring it out. not to happy that I shelled out twenty bucks for this.
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Everyday Glow-Daily Moisturizer in Medium Skin

I have grown to like this product. After a couple of days of use, My legs were taking on a nice color. No splotchiness or fake tan color either. It looked believable, like i spent time in the sun. The only gripe I have is the smell once it settles. Begins to have the typical self-tanner smell, though not as bad. other than that, it provides light moisture.
Conditioner -Matrix - Biolage - Detangling Solution

Ok product. Has a light scent that disappears and it's perfect for those who hate having their hair weighed down by conditioners. Hair is left soft and fluffy, but I needed a tad more moisture. Does have great detangling properties. all in all, its worth a shot.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - SILK ELEMENTS MegaSilk Moisturizing Treatment

Reminds me of L'oreal's nature therapy, but thicker. I bought a trial size packet to try it out and it worked great. hair was left shiny. I'm considering buying the jar, since its always on sale. Can be found at sally's.
Goes on very light and soft, but doesn't feel like your wearing anything. Coverage is good. Covered the circles around my eyes and the redness around my nose and mouth. Lasting power was ok, but could be better. The good thing is that its convenient enough to slip in your purse for qiuck touch-ups. overall, i really loved the product.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub

Not a bad product, but not great. Gives a great, tingling and cooling sensation to the skin which would be perfect for hot days. It also scrubs really well. The bad thing about the product is that it broke me out around my chin. Not cool when you just got over hormonal breakouts. Still undecided about whether i'll repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Gold Bond - Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion

This lotion doesn't have the greatest scent, but it disappears after a while. It has a nice, thick consistency and sinks in well. Took care of stubborn dry patches and even moisturized my cuticles. A nice staple to keep around.
Not a bad soap at all, but nothing that blew me away. I prefer the in-shower lotion to this in terms of smell and moisturization.
Hair -Graham Webb - Vivid Color Shampoo and Conditioner

I really like this duo. Gives the most incredible shine and softness to my colored hair. I can't put my finger on the smell, but its nice. The shampoo cleanses gently and doesn't leave my hair tangled or dry. The conditioner is very emollient, so I don't have to use as much. All in all, a perfect combo if you get your hair colored or chemically processed.
I bought a little trial size tube from my local salon. It has a semi-thick texture which I like and it smelled good. I left it in my hair for 3 minutes and my hair was much softer. Can't really tell if it affected my color, but my hair was also smoother. I am a fan of the total recharge, so this is an excellent to pair with it.
Not as foamy as other mousses I have tried, but it's still a really good product. The smell could use some work, because its a little too herbal for me, but it fades. This leaves my hair not too crunchy and with really good shine.
For 3.99, you get a huge bottle and I love the smell. A cross between gardenia and coconut. It conditions really well and leaves my hair soft and fragrant, although flyaway. Ok product.
This cleans my hair very well and it's super cheap too. Doesn't leave my hair all fly-away like other shampoos do and my hair is left soft and smooth. My favorite out of the brand along with the hair recovery.
Lotions/ Creams -Caress - In-Shower Lotion Glowing Touch

I was dedicated to olay's version until I found this. Now I love it. Has a wonderful smell that lasts fairly well on the skin and spreads way more better. I'm tempted to try the soap next. I didn't see any brightening effects, but it did leave my skin soft and less dry after a shower. Would buy again.
