I won't repeat much what of others have said, but had to weigh in, here. Suffice to say this stuff is amazing. I have very curly hair. I also color it. My hair runs on they dry side. When I wear it curly this product keeps the fuzzies away, when blowing dry straight, it's incredible too. I put some in my wet hair , and then blow dry. Shiny & silky with lots of volume. Fabulous! Once I've blown it dry, use it as touch up on dry hair & keeps my blowout/hair looking smooth and super healthy without weighing it down and looking greasy--and it doesn't ultimately dry the hair out like many of the products containing silicone. Smells divine too. Will buy again for sure!.
I love this eyeliner. goes on perfectly/smoothly and didn't flake or come off until I took a shower in the evening. I purchased the aubergine color. Looks great on brown eyes!
I have very curly caucasian (3c-Julianna Marguiles) hair (just below shoulder length). My hair is fine (lots of it), not coarse. I use this conditioner once or twice a month as deep conditioner and it is wonderful. Leaves my hair shiny, my curls defined (not greasy, wet look defined) and soft. Usually comb it though and wear in a ponytail for a couple of hours (cleaning house or paying bill,etc) or sit under dryer for about 30 minutes. Leaves my hair shiny, soft, healthy look and with great curl definition (not the greasy wet look). Wash it out, comb through some AG Recoil with my fingers and air dry or diffuse. It is on the expensive side. I bought the jar and it lasted me for 12 deep conditions. that is about $4-5 each. Worth it for me. I will repurchase.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess

Very natural, slightly sexy, skin scent. I find Jovan to synthetic smelling, Alyssa Ashley overpowering, with a powdery old lady smell, Skin was just blech. Egyptian goddess is subtly sexy, feminine, but, not powdery. I have gotten numerous compliments from both men and women-always someone standing very close (in an elevator or over my shoulder at a computer, etc). thankfully this is not a perfume that precedes you or lingers after you are gone.
Trying different musks -Egyptian Goddess (the best, for sure, so far), Jovan, etc-and just received the Alyssa Ashley yesterday. 3 letters P.O. L. Powdery old lady.
Love this product. The fat brush gets every lash and makes my lashes long and lush. The plum color is very subtle. Makes brown eyes pop, and if you have any green flecks it brings those out as well. Love. I am stocking up!
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella Eau de Parfum Roll-On

I am in the minority on this one. I bought this because I wanted a non- old lady rose scent. When I initially rolled it on, it was a crisp, clean greener rose scent, but, alas, like most rose scents (at least on me) it dried down to that powerdy hint of old lady. My quest continues..............
Subtle, feminine, clean (not soapy), sophisticated (NOT old lady). Compliments from hubby and others. Would buy again. In fact, am going out tomorrow to buy the body butter as well.
Bought the roll on oil at Fred Segal in L.A. a few years back (after reading an article in In Style magazine featuring Jennie Garth). To be blunt: it smells like VERY STRONG toilet bowl cleaner, imo. My husband and son think it is horrible as well. Gave it to a friend that loves it, so, not a total loss.
This was my favorite anytime fragrance....not made anymore!! If anyone has any they don't want or knows where I can locate-let me know. I've checked Ebay several times over the last couple of years and no dice. I have been searching for "another to take it's place" without any luck so far!
started out as a sophisticated, warm,very nice, dry, fig scent. 2 dry down hours laters my hubby said I smelled like a coconut...I love the smell of coconuts, but don't necessarily want to smell OF one.
I love this one too. Very unique-I receive MANY compliments from men in particular on this one!! Soft fragrance.
I smelled this fragrance on someone that frequents the same coffee shop I do and LOVED it.... on HER. I went out and bought a bottle. It didn't smell as good on me and gave me a major headache. I do not like heavy perfumes-ala Poison, Giorgio, Most Calvin Klein scent (synthetic smelling and too strong), so maybe this was not a good choice for me-but it smelled great on the other woman.....So, now, I've got a 98% full bottle of Boucheron on my bathroom shelf!!
