Fabulous. I can't say much more then that if I had to use 1 word to conclude my opinion on this product. ~ Results Zero frizzing or exposed split ends. Great for the desert and super easy to use. After Washing and Conditioning it go's great in damp hair. If there is slight frizzing the next day a drop takes the frizz away instantly. No greasy residue. ~ Conclusion My hair is super sleek, shiny and manageable. I do use the oil as a partner with the shampoo and conditioner. All products went beyond expectation.
Nothing short of Amazing. I purchased the entire set and I can say that the conditioner beats Redkin 5th Ave. Avocado treatment conditioner and Frederick Fekkai's Glossing cream with the Shea butter. <- Yes!. My Hair type ~ Highly dry hair from living in the desert. Results - Silky shiny Hair that comes out super soft. I'm able to run my fingers through it and It's amazingly shiny. In Conclusion ~ I'm impressed. I found the ingredients to be highly eye catching so I had to jump at the chance to give this a try. It's wonderful for dry and or damaged hair. My results are as stunning as walking out of one of my most favorite Salon trips. It's must have. I will be trying the other choices on the shelf. I will note that I did use the shampoo with the conditioner. Economy ~ Although it comes in a 13 OZ Bottle A Little go's a very long way. Even so It's worth every dime. 1 bottle can range from 7.99 to 9.50 us price. Once in Awhile you can catch a deal such as purchasing 1 bottle getting another Free <- at any local Walgreens. The Bottle itself is Eco Friendly to add to that the results are fabulous. For me it's worth every cent plus some. Considering I was back and forth to other Salon hair products that cost twice as much. I consider it a fabulous deal. For Animal lovers like myself, NOT Tested on Animals. Some Ingredients ~ Aloe Leaf Extract, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Keratin, Bamboo Extract, Cocoa Seed Butter and Avocado Oil
I'm always excited and willing to try a new fragrance especially if it's sweet. I visited my nearest counter to check out New "Can Can", I can also admit the Burlesque theme hearing that Indeed it was a sweeter fragrance. I Sprayed a moderate amount. Result - The fragrance was indeed sweet. I didn't catch many floral notes. I did catch a very light cotton candy and vanilla bean. I thought it was nice but not nice enough to purchase it especially since I own Britney Spear's Fantasy of which this is very similar to. Lasting Power - With my chemistry this fragrance didn't even provide any of it's fragrant scent after a 1/2 an hour. I'm very observant with fragrances and I conclude that the lasting power was very weak. In Conclusion - I will not be purchasing the fragrance. There is 100s of Fragrances out there to try, That I do own and want to sample. I wouldn't own this one.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm

This was a fabulous whim purchase. I have very dry lips due to a few factors. I have tried countless numbers of lip conditioners, balms, chapsticks and treatments. It provides immediate results smoothing the lips within less then a minute. The lasting power is a good few hours which is a more then a satisfactory outcome for me. Clear in appearence. The texture is plush and buttery. There is a slight flower like scent however, for me it's unnoticeable. In conclusion this lip balms performance is so acceptional. I wouldn't think twice about repurchasing.
The Mineral Wear Concealer is available in different corrector and highlighting shades. I picked this up in my choice of the green correcter, which is good for combination fair skin with yellow tones. The formula is very exceptional in iteself. Giving me 90% great coverage for areas needed. I often wear the coverage formula alone. I use the green for a base on areas or for discoloration and I use the highlighter, in pink for the under eye area if needed. The packaging is versatile, connects and disconnects to allow for desired piece or pieces to be carried together or seperate. I have been using this concealer for a few years. It lasts months. It provides excellent coverage, no odors, and gets up to 4 - 6 hours of lasting power.
Concealers -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Concealer Stick - Fair

My interest was peaked when The Organic Wear line was released. I picked the concealer stick up in fair. I applied and wore it for a good half day. No matter how much I tried to blend, the formula became darker. For a fair shade the tone revealed It's dark spots over the few coverage areas applied. The texture was very dry. For an NC 25 or lighter with yellow undertones, combination skin and a few dark spots. It's possible anyone trying it would get the same results I did. I ended up stashing it because It's difficult to work with, It darkens and ofcourse " the odd cardboard scent" that kept annoying me the entire time I wore it . In conclusion, the concept is great. I really tried to make it work. However, it could use some improvements
