Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Arm & Hammer Essentials Natural Deodorant

I have tried so many "natural" deodorants, I thought for sure this one would disappoint me just like all the rest. I was surprised to find this one actually worked. No, it doesn't keep me dry but it does keep me from smelling, which is what I care about most anyways. The fragrance is just ok. I would like to see A & H come out with something a little more floral/citrusy smelling.
Conditioner -Infusium 23 - Conditioner for damaged hair

I have used this for years, I stray every now and again, to see what else is out there, but I always come back for I have yet to find any conditioner that stands up to this one. I love the soft flowery smell, simple packaging, but most of all it's power to detangle and condition my dry hair. I do buy over and over again along with their leave in spray conditioner, great for after swimming.
It's Crap! ..I bought this in combo pack from Sam's Club it contained an 11 oz shampoo, 11 oz. Conditioner, and the 11 oz silk therapy serum, which I absolutely love!! all for $2o. So I thought I really hit the jackpot for this combo. I've never been more disappointed in my life. I was expecting such great results, instead, the shampoo is too heavy, and the condition is too light and drying. My hair was harder than ever to comb out.
This shampoo was aweful. I didn't even like the way it felt when I was shampooing my hair. It's much too heavy, doesn't rinse very well and leaves a build up on my scalp.
I love it. I prefer very light scented perfumes, this one was perfect. I'm on my second bottle.
So far this has been the best lip balm I've tried. I love the tingle, smell, it's not glossy, and cheap too. It also stays on longer and even after it's gone, my lips are still soft, not dried out wanting more like the others do. I like how I can wear this under lipstick too.
Love it! I have a thick head of long dyed blond, super straight, thin hair with an oily scalp. I battle with flyaways and frizzies. I've tried many serums but all left me looking like an oil slick. I use a dime size amount after blowdrying applied only to the lower half of my hair and one light quick pass around crown and front hairline to smooth any pesky flyaways. I love the smell and how it gives me child like smooth healthy looking hair. The price is steep but a little does go a long way. Will be rebuying when I'm out.
Toners -Dove - Essential Nutrients Clarifying Toner

I was looking for something less offensive than L'Oreal's step 2 toner and man, did I go completely to the other end of the spectrum. This did have a nice pleasant fragrance, none of the burning or eye stinging aromas, and left my skin with light dewy feeling. However, this is not the toner for me. I have oily large pored skin that is prone to blackheads and acne and need something that is going to get down into my pores and clean em out. After using this I swiped back over my face with the L'oreal toner and was shocked at how much dirt came off. I won't write this off as a bad toner cause I think it contains alot of good stuff for your face and can be suitable for dry sensitive skin types out there.
Toners -L'Oreal - Pure Zone Toner - Garnier Pure Lotion in Europe

It appears I'm one of the few who actually likes this product. I do not use the whole line, just this toner. I will agree it is a bit harsh feeling and smelling. Reminds me of using Seabreeze back in high school. You quickly hold your breath and rapidly swipe it around your face and then run so it doesn't catch up with you,lol. But I can tolerate it for I really need something that is going to clean thoroughly all traces of dirt and makeup off my face and to me this is one of the few products that does what it says. I have oily large pored skin that is prone to blackheads and acne. It keeps breakouts at bay and has helped minimize poor appearance. I still hold my breath swiping this on but it evaporates rather quickly and as for being drying, I'm sure it could feel that way if you used alone. My skincare code I live by day and night is cleanse, tone, and a light vitamin moisturize, that nips any drying.
No, it does not eliminate blackheads and I tend to agree with a previous reviewer in that nothing will. However, I do believe it has helped minimize my pore's appearance followed up with a swiping of L'Oreal step 2 pore tightening toner(it really does remove every last trace of dirt and makeup). This is a morning staple for me and kept in the shower where my dh uses it too and I notice the same results in his skin too..Very soft, smooth, and a glow. I love the light fragrance and so far for the 3 months I've been using it has not given me any problems with my sensitive/combination/acne proned skin.
I have been using purpose for over 15 years. First recommended by my derm when I was 13 for acne. I do try other products but always come back to this. For me nothing else has compared to it's ability to remove ALL my makeup and still remain gentle to my easily irritated skin. I do agree it can be a bit drying and recommend it mostly to people with sensitive combination to oily skin.
