Styling Products -TiGi - S Factor Silky Smooth Moisture Serum

It is expensive, but worth it! I have very fine baby thin hair. I am usually afraid to use any leave-in treatment that is conditioning because it flattens it. I was amazed with this product because it didn't flatten my hair. It almost made my hair feel plumper...if that makes any sense. Did it's job-conditioned well, without weighing down my hair. I am very satisfied and will be repurchasing.
Nothing short of a freakin miracle!! Love love love it! A little goes a LONG way. I mean, it's ridiculous how well this shampoo lathers and spreads. It's so expensive, but a bottle will last forever! If they didn't charge 27 a bottle, then they probably wouldn't make a profit. This shampoo (and conditioner) is AMAZING! My hair has never looked better!
Hmmm. This product confuses me. I have slightly sensitive skin, so I dampened my face before applying it to make it not as harsh. While I was using the scrub it lathered up into a rich lather and I could certainly feel the large grained particles in this scrub going to work. After using this my skin felt amazingly soft, but it was also red and a little tight. However, when I was done with Modern Friction I used a toner then added a moisturizer. My skin went back to normal. Although my skin did feel soft after using this product, I am not sure if it was worth the money. I get the same effect rubbing salt and some water on my face. I don't think I will be repurchasing this product because it just isn't worth the money to me.
Conditioner -Matrix - Biolage Ultra Hydrating Conditioning Balm

I am always processing my hair and I get it highlighted. My hair is extremely fragile. I swear by this conditioner (and it's shampoo). This saves my hair from being dry!
Shampoo -Matrix - Biolage - Ultra Hydrating Shampoo

Works great! Smells great! I will buy this for the rest of my life! My hair feels so amazingly soft just after one use. I also always process my hair and I highlight my hair, and my hair is extremely weak. This saves my hair from becoming dehydrated!
If you have weak fragile hair that breaks easily, this will certainly help you out when you process your hair. I combine this product with Redken's "blown away" and my hair feels incredibly strong. It's actually magical how well this product works.
Conditioner -Redken - Extreme Conditioner [REFORMULATED]

Scent is incredible! I use this with Redken's "blow away" leave-in treatment and Redken's "extreme iron force" leave-in treatment and my hair feels stronger than steel! My hair is extremely fine and breaks easily, so I am glad that I discovered this line from Redken. The extreme shampoo and conditioner both work great! If you have fragile hair, I would recommend this line to you. Something I would be careful about is that I would alternate this with another shampoo/conditioner and only use it every other wash or so. Since this deposits protein into your hair, there is a such thing as too much protein and your hair can become weaker. But don't let that scare you out of using it! This product is amazing when used properly! I would also use this conditioner in conjunction with the "extreme shampoo" to have to have the full effect.

Treatments -RoC - Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

I really wanted this to help my completion. The first night I used it, I thought it worked great! Then I used it the next night...and the next night...and then BAM my face was SO DRY and on top of that I had the worst acne I have ever had in my life! I guess this product is not for me. But I do not have wrinkles. I just wanted to try it out for preventative reasons. I would use the product with caution. Maybe try it in small areas before putting it on your whole face. It's worth a try since I hear some women get amazing results. It just didn't work out for me...so this is not for everyone.
Loose Powders -Clinique - Gentle Light powder [DISCONTINUED]

I used to use this religiously but then I ran out and didn't buy it for a couple of months. When I finally went out and bought it again it was like night and day. I seriously forgot how great this powder was! I put this on over my foundation and it lasts all day. It's great! My best friend told me, "omg, your skin looks amazing! What's your secret?" and I told her that this powder was my secret! I promise, people will notice the amazing glow on your face after you apply this. I feel like a movie star with this powder!
Treatments -Redken - Extreme Anti Snap [REFORMULATED]
Lilmisssammy 4/10/2010 8:12:00 PM
I recently bought a sample of this at Ulta. The scent it AMAZING! This is the best smelling hair treatment I have ever used. I will buy this again just for the scent! Not only is the scent amazing, but it works! My hair is ultra fine and it breaks so easily. I am so glad that I tried a sample of this. It makes my hair feel so healthy. It is important to note that this product should not be used every time you wash your hair. It is only supposed to be used about once a week or else it'll do more damage (From what I've read on MUA). This product deposits protein in your hair and there is a such thing as too much protein. Don't let that scare you away from this product because your hair also needs protein to remain strong. With the use of Anti-Snap properly, you'll maintain the perfect balance. The good thing about not using this every day is that the bottle will last your even longer! It's worth every penny!
I thought this lotion worked very well! It did not make my face break out and I did its job as far as sun protection and being a good moisturizer. I have fair skin and I am prone to sun burns, so a high SPF face lotion is very important to my skin routine. I asked a woman working at EL about SPF protection and it has both UVA/UVB protection. I cannot live without this product! I love it! And a little will go a long way, so it will last you forever!! Also, for EL this product is a very reasonable price.
Just like the conditioner, a little DOES NOT go a long way. It is not worth it. I feel like I have to use half the bottle to work up a nice lather. So I will not be repurchasing this.
A little does not go a long way. I feel like I have to use half the bottle just to get it to spread in my hair. If they only made the consistency of this conditioner a bit more thick, then maybe it would be better. I will not repurchase.
I personally did not think the "plumping" action was there. It was just a really good moisturizer. I was kind of disappointed because it was so expensive, and it barely did any plumping. You're better off saving your money and getting lip injections. That seems to be the only legit way to plump lips.
