QVC crystal nail file claims to leave your nails smoother but it actually makes them rougher. This is the worst nail file I've ever used, clearly not all crystal nail files are good.
I got this for my hair to smooth the frizz and it works so well plus I feel good knowing its natural and I can use it on my lips as well :) Its an excellent all purpose balm. I don't think any balm is particularly moisturizing for lips tho so I only use this on top of moisture as a sealant, it doesn't feel greasy and melts away to leave smooth skin.
This is good, it sealed my damaged, frizzy ends and was long lasting but I had to use two. Make sure you use it on very clean hair, like after using a clarifying shampoo.

I used to use this as a leave-in after straightening my hair, it conditioned and made it shiny but was a bit too heavy and greasy so only ever used a tiny bit if I wanted more shine. I think its quite expensive but if I buy it again I will only use it as a rinse out conditoner.

Smells nice but isn't very hydrating for my hands, just masks them and feels a bit sticky and uncomfortable.
It does protect my hair from the heat but also leaves it crispy and dry, I think because it has so much alcohol in it. Its probably better for people who don't have dry hair.
My hair did feel dry immediately after but thats the case with most dyes. I like that its mousse so doesn't cling to your scalp, the colour blends really well and is easy to apply. the only down side is that I notice a lot of colour coming out when I wash it and even on my comb after styling... but doesnt look faded. Im surprised by the bad reviews - this is the most natural looking dye I've ever used and it covers my grays fine, even my mums

Conditioner -Schwarzkopf - Gliss Kur Liquid Silk Conditioner

Its so cheap and it works. I did not rinse it off completely I left a little on and It made my hair so shiny and silky that I did not need to use any styling products after which was great. The only down side is that it was a bit too silky and so couldn't hold styles like waves or curls very well, but great if you just want it straight.
I love this product. It may not have much argan oil but it still works. I don't really notice any difference until after I use my straightening irons, the heat seems to activate it. Its expensive but turns my hair from straw to silk so I'd never straighten without it. I have actually used pure argan oil on my hair and its good but not as good as the morrocanoil so maybe the added silicones make the difference...
Maybe it depends on the type of hair or how you use it, but it just makes mine feel dryer. I've tried it as a leave in styling product and before using straighteners but not impressed so far...

It really works :) Smoothes down most of my frizz and leaves it really soft but on its own its not enough to protect against humidity etc so still have to use styling products on top.
