Love this product but hate the smell! It smells kinda ashy or like incense. But my hair has never been silkier! I really feel like this product is healing my hair and making it silky smooth. I usually spray a good smelling product on top of it to neutralize the smell.
Product smells EXACTLY like the BANANA RUNTS candy. Kind of a sickening sweet smell...overbearing artificial banana. It may work well though, haven't tried it enough to tell.
Treatments -Loma - Pearatin Fortifying Repairative Serum

I've only used this twice so far, but it smells like medicine....like liquid amoxicillin or something. I have to use A LOT to saturate my hair and I can't stand the horrible smell. But after I dry my hair it seems to be soft and silky. I'm sure I can find other products that do just as good a job that actually smell good.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Oiseau - Flaming June

This fragrance smells soooooo wonderful! I love it soooo much. Go to Anthropolgie and test it for yourself. It is a gorgeous light and unique fragrance. The only con is that it may be too light- it doesn't last very long- but if you keep it in your purse that won't be a problem :)
Gels/Soaps -Neutrogena - Body Clear Body Wash - Pink Grapefruit

This product only smells good for like a second. My shower quickly turned from smelling like grapefruit to smelling like fast food!!! I'm not kidding, it starts to smell like stale hamburgers and french fries....it is disgusting!!! There is such an awful "after-smell" that I threw the bottle away before I could even see if it worked.
There was a tester for each of the colors at ULTA so I drew a little line on my hand and decided that Epic was the exact raisiny color I was looking for. It seemed deep and rich but still neutral. Unfortunately, when I got home and applied it to my lips, it did not show up nearly as dark as it did on the back of my hand. The color got lost on my lips, so there was NO exaggerating my lip line. I will not buy again. I prefer Revlon or CG raisin lip liners.
This is the 2nd best mascara you can buy in a CVS type place. My 1st choice is Almay One Coat Nourishing Triple Effect. I have to say I like this better than Dior, YSL, Givenchy, all the other overpriced mascaras. It coats every lash and makes my lashes very black :)
Mascara -Almay - One Coat Nourishing Mascara Triple Effect

I love this mascara! I have tried all the expensive ones- Dior, YSL, Givenchy, etc- but this is my favorite out of all of them! The color I use is blackest black and that is exactly what it is. No other mascara makes my lashes sooo black...I love it! It is also a very wet textured mascara, so if there ever is a clump i can pinch it off easily b/c my lashes are still wet, never crunchy or flaky. I love using it to define my lower lashes as well. Overall, best mascara out there.
I love the CHI shampoo so I was hoping I would love this too- but unfortunately I was not impressed. It takes A LOT to saturate your hair into making it feel even slightly moisturized. Even after using a handful of it, my hair still never felt silky like conditioners are supposed to feel when you rinse. The only good thing is the smell- I love the CHI products fragrance.
Treatments -Organix - Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

When you put this in you hair after its washed, you tend to keep adding more and more b/c it does not make wet hair feel silky. Therefore, after you dry your hair, it is a greasy mess....dry hair still looks wet. I've tried using way less but I think it is too greasy no matter what (and I have very dry, damaged hair, so I need oil, just not this product!)
The Real Control products are definitely my favorite Redken line. They smell sooo good and they give you a salon feeling everytime you use them. They make my hair silky and bouncy and healthier in appearance.
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Super Strong Daily Conditioner
CocaNicola 6/29/2010 12:01:00 PM
I love the super strong shampoo and conditioner. It smells incredible. It's like going to the salon every day...the way it lathers and rinses and the fnished product...total salon quality!
The lady at ULTA recommended this for me above any other product- I really don't know what she was thinking!!! It made my hair sticky, crackly and dry. I've given it several chances too. Very disappointed.
