This is a great sunscreen for the face. It does burn around my eyes so i avoid that area. Sorry but I've yet to find any sunscreen that doesn't burn my eyes. I like that it is moisturizing and I have gotten compliments that my skin is "glowing" when I am wearing it. It doesn't make me break out and I do have dry and sensitive skin.
My dermatologist recommended this to me and I have been using it for years since! It has no smell, doesn't sting. It is nice and thick but doesn't make you oily. It makes my skin stay moisturized all day. I wear this always. It doesn't cause my breakouts. It's good all over my face including my eye area. Just love it! Don't buy the generic they water it down. Cetaphil all the way!
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Silk Elements Megasilk Heat Protection Spray

I love Silk Elements!!! My hair is bleached platinum and it drinks this stuff up. A little goes a long way and if you put too much it can get greasy. I only use this on days that i blowdry my hair straight. I spray it on while my hair is still damp and by the time it's dry, all the spray has soaked in. It leaves my hair soft and detangled. And I LOVE the way their stuff smells!!!
Treatments -Garnier - Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray

Ok I will say, Garnier really puts out some garbage. I won't suggest buying anything by them that touches you scalp because their products did make my hair actually fall out once. But i still trust their sprays for the length. This is good for adding shine. It does not soften my hair whatsoever. The bottle is amazing. Perfect mist bottle.
Treatments -L'Oreal - EverCreme Nourishing Leave In Spray

I have been loving L'oreal's eversleek line lately, but this. Oh my god. The smell is SO strong that it gave me ridiculous migraines. It is strong and it doesn't go away. I had to wash it out after I finally decided i could take it anymore. And it didn't even make my hair soft. I had to return this. The best part about this product is the bottle. If your bottle had a stream spray, you got a defect because this product comes out in the finest mist, I almost just kept it and dumped the product down the drain to keep the bottle to make my own hair mister. But $7 is a lot for just a misting bottle so i returned it. Sorry Loreal but I seriously don't know why anyone would want to dump pure noxious perfume on their heads.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - EverSleek Reparative Smoothing Conditioner

This stuff is great. I have dry bleached hair and it conditions it really well. I like the smell (most smells are either too strong to me or too fruity but this is just right). I have even used this stuff as a CO wash. It rinses well, doesn't leave my hair weighed down, and it is silicone free! My hair has been growing very fast. My hairdresser can't believe how long and healthy my hair is especially since we bleach it almost white. It's thick and almost to the middle of my back. I think the sulfate and silicone free stuff works best for me.
Conditioner -Queen Helene - Cholesterol Hair Conditioning Cream

This stuff neither made my hair greasy nor did it make it soft. It rinses out easy enough but seriously it sucks. I have bleached hair and honestly my regular conditioner works better than this. Today (the day after using the cholesterol), my hair is reallly dry and pieces are breaking off. It also made my hair super tangly. No different to me than any cheap conditioner.
This shampoo is garbage!! A lot of people are complaining that their scalp suffered after using this and I will say this stuff definitely made my hair FALL OUT!!! What on earth are they even putting in this stuff? I quit using it and slowly (over months) my hair is growing back. I was using it along with the conditioner. Nope, I will spend the extra $ from now on for my hair stuff.
I like this shampoo. There isnt a strong smell, it doesn't make your hair fall out like the cheapy garnier type stuff, and it's only $10 a bottle. I have bleached platinum almost mid back length hair and this stuff doesn't dry it out or make it tangly.
Oh my god! If you have bleached hair, buy this! To the girls with bleached hair, you know how your hair stretches and breaks when it is wet? Well I just tried this for the first time and as I was rinsing it out in the shower, I did a strand test and guess what.... NO gummy stretchy breaking hairs!!! Then I brushed after while still wet and again, NO stretchy breaking gummy hair. It feels like normal, unbleached hair. If you think it's too smelly to use, then you must not have very damaged hair because the smell is a small price to pay to actually FIX mushy damaged hair. This stuff is not for normal hair AND it is NOT for making hair soft. That is what conditioner is for. If you are a brunette with minimally damaged hair and just want softer hair, go buy a conditioner! This is a protein treatment. Use it exactly as it says on the container and don't waste your time if you have normal, brown hair (unless it is relaxed ethnic hair--which this is also perfect for). BTW, I have very long, thick, wavy dark blonde hair that is bleached to almost pure white.
