I am a Kerastase fan since i was a teen. I love the shampoos and Masquintense for thick hair is a product i can not live without so, when i first saw this new treatment and read all the marvelous things that it is supposed to do i bought it (though it hurt my pocket since it is very expensive, 95 Euros for a box with 200ml cream and 50ml perls). I was very anxious to try it on and of course I expected miracles with all the rave reviews and the outrageous price. The result? TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT. Did not help my dry hair at all (I get better results with Masquintense than this), no shine, no softeness, no nothing... i have dyed hair and i wanted the extra treatment to make my hair healthy, soft and shiny but i got absolutly nothing. It feels very velvelty and soft when you rinse your hair and it detangles my curls but that is something my hair mask does too. The smell i did not like either but it was not a big problem for me.( I was more interested in the "amazing" results). The reason i put 2 stars is only for the elegant packaging. The box is very beautiful and when you open it you have the feeling that you opened a box that contains a precious set of jewels. I will put this "treatment" until it is over since I still "mourn" for my 95 Euros to simply throw it to the garbage, but from my experience i'd say "Save your money gilrs for something better than this" or... if you wish to give it a try first go to a hair salon and try it before you buy it. If you think i am too harsh with the product since i only tried it one time i say this. When i give so much money for a product that promises heaven (for hair) then I expect nothing less that miracles!

Ok... i have had MAJOR problems with any other sunscreen i have tried and spent a fortune on truing to find THE ONE sunscreen that will not make me greasy and will not melt when i am out in the sun causing my face to sweat and have LARGE drops of grease (and sweat) dropping from my forehead to my eyes making my eyes red and sensitive and icky. I gave up the idea that i would ever find such a sunscreen and so i did not use any at all (which of course caused me have light brown spots here and there..) until i bumped into the Jan Marini sunscreen which promised ( as millions of others) that it would not make my skin oily, last longer and provide me with the sun protection i always needed. I bought this just to try it but i didn't expect much from it to be honest BUT.... I was amazed! The very first time i used this and went out to the sun and my skin did NOT look like a grease ball and i wasn't sweating and it looked nicely moistured but with no excess!! I am IN LOVE with this product! i finally found the perfect sunscreen for me and though i agree with most that it is expensive (ouch! ) it is DEFINATELY worth it's money and i will buy it again. Plus the smell is lovely and it doesn't irritate your eyes. (i have super sensitive eyes and i avoid using products that have any kind of scent on my face because my eyes go red and i cry). 5 stars from me for this sunscreen!
I simply ADORE this perfume! Ever since i first tried it back in 2003 until today. It is always a part of my perfume collection and the only steady perfum in it. ( this and flower by Kezno actually ). It smells simply divine and so sexy and feminine (at least that is what everyone is telling me. Men..Women..). i love it,love it,LOVE IT and i will stay faithful to it for as long as it smells nice on me! :)
