When I used this I used it in conjunction with the shampoo from this line and loved them!! The conditioner made my hair feel soft and it smelled so nice!! Both products combined really brought out the highlights in my medium brown hair. As of this past Saturday I will have no need for this line anymore due to I went blonde! lol I can't wait to try the blonde line hair care but if your a brunette and haven't tried this stuff TRY IT!!!!!!

Last week Saturday I went blonde so this will no longer be a purchase for me lol But I will be moving on to try the blonde hair are line =D If your a brunette this is a must try!!!!

Been using this since it came out. I love how it smells and just one pump is pretty much all I need to use on my hair,mainly on my ends. After straightening I sometimes get flyaways and this works great to fix them and the added shine this gives my hair is great! The scent of this is so wonderful and not over powering at all.
Treatments -Ion - Color Defense - After-Color Sealing Treatment

I've used this off and on for years now and love it! I usually snag a packet for 99Â¢ when I pop in Sally's. Scent of this imo is a light fresh scent. I love how this softens my thick,dry super curly,dyed,and almost daily straightened hair. I always makes my hair looks glossy,smooth and bouncy. It seems to really seal in color and help with fading imo. The true test was these past 3weeks....I have been using Color Oops and re dying both 1x a week til this last time over the weekend...I finally found my perfect color (went lighter due to horrid greys) and had to use Color Oops to get the previous dye out so that was this past Saturday and I washed my hair today and used this. Now anyone who has used Color Oops knows how super drying it is...well once again I have to give props to Ion for making this stuff my hair feels amazingly soft!!! After showering and using this I blow dried my hair and followed up with straightening my hair and it feels luxurious. By looking at it and feeling my hair you can't even tell its been thru the ringer for the past 3 weekends lol Since the mid 90's I've dyed my hair closest to my natural hair color wich is medium brown and with this stuff over the past few years had made my brown hair vibrant and wonderfully soft! As of this past Saturday I went blonde,I can only imagine how my new color will be looking with use of this stuff. I may be done with packets and just finally get a bottle.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #210 Precise Eye Liner (Fine Point)
Princesa7 5/20/2013 12:14:00 PM
I've been using this liner brush for many years but then sometime last year I lost it. Shame on me for being cheap and not wanting to dish out the money to get a new one lol I tried a few other cheap liner brushes and nothing worked like my beloved 210 brush....so after 6 long months of suffering and using other brushes I finally said no more and this past Saturday got a new 210 brush and am in liner heaven once again!!!!!!! "This brush gives me the perfect thin line I love! *I can do a pefect cat eye look Need I go on lol this liner brush is worth every cent!!! If I ever lose it again you can bet I will be buying one the same day lol
*Brief hair dyeing history.. So I've been coloring my hair since middle school (23yrs) lol I've been black,various shades of red,blonde and brown over the years...biggest mistake was going black back in highschool,had to get my hair stripped and do protein treatments etc cuz my hair was severly damaged....Last time I was blonde was Sept of 1990 9th gr!!! So since the mid 90's now I've been sticking with med brown wich is closest to my natural color..loving and have no issues...........well now fast forward to this year...I'm now 38 and since January I have noticed the greys are coming in stronger!!! Yikes wich now means I practically have to re dye almost every 2 weeks....thats just a no for me lol and I figured I'd try something lighter to help with the grey and not have to dye as much. So after using Color Oops and various shades of blonde dye in the past 3 weeks that ended up flat/too dark.dull/brassy etc...I found this at Sally's and decided to try it! Well I'm so freakn happy I did cuz this is the color I wanted!!!!!!!! I mixed it with Ion's Sensitive Scalp 30 developer and left it on for 45mins and its perfect! This is a high lift color wich I wanted cuz I didn't want to go the bleaching route (my hair naturally is a light to med brown) so this dye made my hair a wonderful shade of a light almost golden blonde and I can tell will be a nice color when my greys come thru they will blend nicely so I wont have to re dye as much. This hair color reeks(like most L'oreal hair dyes) lol but its tolerable and the results are worth it and by the time 45mins pass the scent has died down a lot I'm so beyond happy with this color its crazy lol (I pray it never gets discontinued) the color looks so pretty and natural too,multi dimensional (wich i love) and not even a hint of brass!!!!!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Coconut Passion EDT

This is my main go to perfume for spring & summer!!! I LOVE IT!!!!! A beautiful mix of coconut & vanilla that is perfection and on me it lasts for hours. My husband is also a fan of this scent on me =D This is a HG scent for me and hope VS never ever discontinues it!!!
I feel like I have had this bottle forever lol but I do use it only in spring & summer. I love this bright pink color,2coats gives me the opaqueness I want. This color lookes soooo good with my tan!!!
OMG this stuff is a steal!!!!!!!!!! I picked this up a while back since my UDPP was out and got this to try out. Well I'm glad i did and I think UDPP might be history for me lol This lil Elf primer is amazing!!! *My shadow lasts all day and night with no creasing! *It applies so smooth,soft & silky *I tend to get oily lids but not at all with this primer I have zero issues. This stuff is a MUST TRY!!!!! You have nothing to lose if it doesn't work for you lol its sooooooo worth trying for a $1
Love this!!!!!!! So I picked this up over the weekend and used it so much!! Its such a pretty pearl pink color that I personally love wearing this alone but over a lipstick its nice too for a hint of color. *Its got a brush applicator wich is fiine by but I could see the brush fraying out over time with use but imo its no big deal since you can snip them right off. *No flovor with this one its kinda blah but the color makes up for it. *Long lasting *Feels decently moisturizing *Lips looked plumped Overall I think this is such a pretty lip color that I'd totally repurchase once I'm out.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Studio Angled Eyeliner brush
Princesa7 5/20/2013 10:12:00 AM
Not a bad liner brush for $3!! I picked this up after somehow losing my MAC 210 liner brush and it works nice. My only issue is that the ends fray out wich drive me nuts and can make my liner gel go on more thicker than I'd like..even when I fix the frays it always goes back to being frayed out...with that said I will keep this brush for back up but will suck it ip and dish out the $ for my MAC 210 brush. Still for $3 you can't go wrong at all and if it wasn't for the brush fraying out on me this one would have been a keeper....and believe me I've tried everything I could to help with the fraying.
Definitely a favorite!!! I've used many gel liners from low to high end and this stuff is excellent!!! I will say I do prefer my MAC Fluidline but when low on $ this Essence liner is the next best thing to get!!! It goes on nice & smooth and imo is very pigmented. My only tiny gripe is that I notice after a few hrs it tends to fade but otherwise this stuff is great.
Besides for using this on my kids when they were little,I have used this as a dry shampoo and it works like a charm!!! I love the scent too!
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub

I love the scent of this! This scrub makes my skin feel sooooo smooth! I use a small amount of this on my face (a little goes a long way) and after gently using itfor about a minute and ten rinsing off my skin feels so refreshed and smooth. I've noticed too that it realy tightens up my pores and don't need to use a toner or astringent. I don't find it irritating or harsh at all but I do only use it 1-2x a week.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Shiny Silver Ultra

Love this! It smells like VS Sweet Temptation from back in the day!! So after dyeing my hair last night to a sandy blonde color I had a little bit of brass going on. I used the Clariol Shimmer Lights shampoo and used this conditioner right after. I could tell the Shimmer Lights helped with toning down the brass initially but OMG after putting this conditioner on and then finally rinsing it out I could tell even more of a difference!!! it worked amazing and my hair was soft! This conditioner is awesome!!!!! and the scent is to die for! YUM!!! this will be a staple for me as long as I'm going a little (maybe more) blonde!! =D
