I love the smell of this, but it feels kind of waxy to me. I would never use this on my face. I really like to use this product for my hair. I think it makes it soft and shiny without making it limp or greasy which is weird since when it's on my skin it feels waxy.

I really like the scent of both the shampoo and conditioner. This conditioner really does a good job of moisturizing my hair. I would however never use this on my body. I think it's too rich and would break me out.
I got this with the shampoo, conditioner and body cream. I would never pay for this on it's own. Definitely not worth the money for me. It has a nice scent, it scrubs the skin a bit and leaves me with soft nice smelling skin, but nothing really that great. But, as long as I can get this with combo packages I will continue to use.

I really like the smell of this product. To me it smells like chocolate. I like how my hair smells the next day too. I think it cleans pretty well, I get a decent lather from this product. I have soft water so maybe that is why I get it to lather. I have dry, colored, curly hair and it has helped with the dryness. I have shine in the front of my hair, but my back is coarse and even this does not help it shine. It's just the nature of my hair. I do find that I need to shampoo more often though since I started using this product. I also would not use this as a body wash.
Definitely try this before you buy. I made the mistake of smelling this from a paper swatch in a magazine which I loved but when I got this for Christmas and used the actual product, it was a different story. Like another reviewer stated, it is very strong and sweet. I would feel very uncomfortable wearing this anywhere food was served. I think it would offend, it's that strong in my opinion and I spray this one on very lightly and only on my wrists and it's still too strong IMO. I like the scent, but it's really just too over-powering.

This body butter smells like sweet sticky candy at first then dries down to a light flowery scent with a hint of cooking oil. The product is like a can of lip balm and you have to dig into it to get a decent amount to rub on your skin. It leaves my skin greasy and doesn't really soak in that much. I wanted the oil, but got this instead and if the oil ends up smelling anything like this, I won't be getting it.

This oil smells like orange cinnamon potpourri to both my husband and me. It even has potpourri in it. It's not an unpleasant scent, actually I find it relaxing and use this at night before I go to sleep. The scent does not last long at all. The oil does soak in nicely and my body feels soft afterward. It's a bit expensive though, but since I only use a small amount and only before bed, it's OK to spend the $20 it costs.

I found this at my local Walmart in the Ethnic hair section. I don't care for the scent, it does smell like a baby wipe or baby oil. I use it on my hands and feet and it does a good job on my hands and an OK job on my feet. I also swipe a bit through the dry parts of my hair. My hair soaks it in and no greasy residue. My hair is natually curly and very dried out. This oil along with Keratase products, make my hair feel soft and silky. It's pretty cheap and will last a long time.
This is a wonderful hair mask that you leave in for 10-20 minutes. My hair is naturally curly, dyed and very dry. It's actually been breaking on me for reasons I'm not sure. So despite all my hair troubles, I went a head and used a hair dye remover and my poor hair was a mess. I could not get a comb through my wet hair because my hair was so damaged it wouldn't move. I used this product after a Aphogee protein treatment and my hair literally sucked this stuff up. I could have used this as a leave in conditioner, it did not feel waxy, oily or heavy, but I did rinse it out. It smelled wonderful and it left my awful feeling hair much better and actually softer. I know the protein treatment probably helped, some but honestly my hair didn't start to feel normal until I put this product in. I will continue using this product on a regular basis. It's expensive but worth it.

First I rarely if ever give a product a perfect score, I just have never found a perfect product. However I always score fairly, that's why this product gets a 4 lip from me. I have it in fair and even though I have a little color left over from the summer, this color works for me. It left my skin looking even and smooth. I have a few slight imperfections to my 43yr. old skin and this covered them completely. I never looked greasy either. I apply it with a brush and a little goes a long way for me. You can build the color if you need to. I would not use this in summer months however because the spf factor is too low. During the cooler months it's just enough protection for me.
I have only used this once and so far I love it. My hair has always seemed to respond well to Joico treatment products. My hair is dyed, dried and fried and I was using Redken products to try to help it. My hair wasn't responding so I figured my hair might need to be deep cleaned first. I had this shampoo on hand and right away I could tell this was something wonderful. It lathered nicely and my hair felt soft under this shampoo. I then conditioned with Redken and my hair was left shiny, soft and in better condition. I think now I will do the Joico K pak. UPDATE: Not sure what happened but for some reason this shampoo turned and had clear gel clumps in it. It didn't lather up or clean right either. I called the salon where I got it and they said it sometimes happens as it sits on the shelf. I didn't have it a month and this happened.

I'm not impressed with this shampoo for myself. It leaves my dry curly chemical treated hair dry and tangled. I find I have to use lots of conditioner to undo the problems this shampoo causes my hair. My son who has fine hair that tends to get oily can use this shampoo with no problems and it makes his hair look beautiful.

I use this moisturizer in the winter and it really helps with dryness, however it does have a bit of a powdery feel to me. I tend to break out from some moisturizers but not this one. The scent is a little to strong for me sometimes though.

I use this conditioner as a "wash" when I don't want to use shampoo and it works fairly well. It's not heavy or greasy on me and leaves my hair pretty decent. The smell isn't the best, but it's not repulsive either.
I bought this product to help heal my sunburned shoulders. I can't use plain aloe gel, but I can use this product with no problem since it's mixed with other ingredients. It did help my sunburn and I did not peel, it left me moisturized but did not break me out. The list of ingredients was just what my poor skin needed after that nasty burn. The scent is a little strong, but it does smell good.
