Hair Styling Tools -Solano - Sapphire Collection Professional Straightening Iron

I just got this from the UPS guy about 1/2 hour ago and I had to go right to productville (after I straightened my hair, of course!) I have very thick wavy/curly hair just past my shoulders that, in order to straighten, I spend 40 minutes blow drying it and then another 15-20 with the curling iron to seal the cuticle so it doesn't look like an enormous bushy paintbrush. Well, I just spent--at the most--15 minutes straightening my hair with the solano (I have the convex/concave one) and my hair is stick straight, smooth and shiny! I am ecstatic! I put off buying one because of the price (I got it at BeautyCentury.com for 79.99), but it is soooo worth it! I totally agree with MelissaM that 5 stars doesn't do this straightening iron justice!
I received this in a swap and as soon as I used it I thought "this is just like my burts bees baby buttermilk lotion!" so I swapped it back out! The smell is identical, and the burts bees is a lighter lotion, just like the fresh (great for summer legs!) And as far as the price goes, fresh is 8.1 oz. for $24 and the pump that you need with this bottle costs an additional $5, where the burts bees is 8 oz. for $9 including the pump, but I just got it on sale at drugstore.com for $5.59! So basically, with the fresh, you're just paying for the name and the cute glass milk bottle. I would definately recommend going with the burts bees instead (and the baby bee milk bath is also awesome, and you get that in the cute glass milk bottle for $15, or $8.79 at drugstore.com!)
Stinky! I can smell the olives! Not what I wanted to smell like. Good thing the demeters only last about 5 minutes! :o)
This is a great product for my thick wavy hair. It separates my curls without leaving them crunchy.
Very hard consistency--I had to leave it out in my hot car to even be able to get any out of the tin. Also, I know her products are supposed to be all natural (and it does smell good), but where lip balm is concerned, I like mine to have some sort of flavor besides cocoa butter.

Love this lotion! Such a great scent! First tried it when I received a baby bee kit when my son was born. Well, guess what? Mama got all the baby bee stuff, he's happy with his J&J!

My favorite of all TBS body butters. Incredibly smooth thick lotion that does not go on greasy at all.
Not a good shampoo for my thick wavy hair. Didn't lather well at all (at the price, I hated having to use so much to get a decent lather) and if anything, my hair felt drier after using this product. Don't waste your money.
I don't see what all the fuss is about. I have thick wavy hair, and this product did nothing for it.
Scrubs -Natural Esscents - Sugar Limone Body Scrub

I love this! I have very sensitive skin (translation: razor burn) and I can use this after I shave my legs, unlike a salt based scrub. Also, since using it, I have noticed a lack of razor burn, because my legs are now always nicely exfoilated.
I have very thick, curly/wavy hair which tends to frizz, and this is the 1st product I have ever used that actually keeps the frizz down! Also, it does not coat your hair like a gel would (leaving it crunchy) it just leaves it natural feeling. How I wish my hair was naturally! Great product.
