I actually recieved both this and the sweet almond cc as a gift. I have very thin wavy blonde (naturally dirty blonde but highlighted light blonde) hair. I used the sweet almond first, and liked it but didn't love it as it left my hair slightly oily (I did wash it completely out as I know that's why some people's hair was left oily). Then I started using the pomegranate and I love it. I did not have that instant reaction when I first started using it of "omg it looks amazing" but I have seen the improvement over the 3 months I have now been using it. The ends of my hair are so much thicker looking/feeling than they have ever been. It is extremely shiny and healthy looking. I would have rated this a 5 except for the price. It is not something I could really afford to buy all the time (or ever for that matter lol), but for people who can, it is a great product. I actually cut my super long hair to my chin right before I started using this because it had no volume and was just looking drab, I'm now trying to grow it long again as I think the Wen will keep it strong and healthy! Edit - I wanted to add that my hair is very fussy, the ends are very dry (from highlighting, straightening, etc.) and the scalp is very oily, so that may be why the sweet almond left my hair a little too oily looking. If you have drier hair SA CC may be good for you. The pomegranate is still my best reccommendation though for people with hair like mine!
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish

I am not very experienced with nail polishes. I usually do not wear any color on my fingers and if I do on my toes they used to be professional (and that was fairly rare). However, I could no longer afford the pro-pedi so I thought I'd give this a try. I first bought Shrimply Devine for a summer color and loved how smooth and streak free it was. It looked professional! I loved it so much a bought another color, Choco-Latte and love that as well. I intend on buying more colors. Other reviewers said the lighter colors tend to streak. The choco latte is fairly light and did not streak for me but I will need to test out some more colors. So far so good.
I bought this product a while ago as part of an Ojon kit. A week ago I ran out of conditioner for a day or two so my hair was extremely dry (over highlighting did not help either...). So I put a very large amount in my hair and left it on overnight. The next day I washed it out and although I do not agree with other reviewers saying the smell stayed in the hair, the product seemed to. My long blonde hair was very damp/oily looking (although that is probably from the massive amount I loaded on, and leaving it for so long). After one more wash it was completely out, and my hair was left very soft and shiny. My waves were also very defined and frizz free. If you can stand the smell and the price tag I think this product works great for dry damaged hair, but make sure you have time to give two washes otherwise you will look rather oily.
This tamer I bought as part of a kit a few years ago. It ended up being my favorite Ojon item ever, and I've tried a few. My hair is fine and wavy. I usually straighten it but when I use this stuff I don't have to. It defines my waves and gives my hair a lot of volume. I always get compliments when I wear it with this stuff! They've since discontinued this product and I was just wondering if anyone knows of any similar products to this? Thanks so much!
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel

I bought this specifically to fade my old acne marks as I do not have any current pimples. I only started using it about a week ago, and I have already noticed the newest marks beginning to fade. I have not had any of the irritation other people have had, and I have extremely sensitive skin. I think that may be because I use a very very light application. I started with one application per day for a while and slowly increased it to two - three. While it has not had any effect on my older marks (which there are many), I am still hopeful. If you have new acne marks though this should work for you. The only con I can think of is the smell is horrid. I put this on in the morning before I left for school and I had to actually wipe it off before I went into class as I knew other people would be able to smell it. So that was a waste of that application...do not put on before you go out in public! Try putting it on later in the day or at night and you should see a slight improvement in newer acne marks (but i'm not yet sure about the old ones).
I have been using Dallas for about 3 years straight and cannot live without it. I do not wear very much foundation/powder but I have to put on some Dallas. Even on my extremely fair skin it looks so natural, which a lot of other blushes or bronzers do not. I get compliments all the time asking me if I've been in the sun! The price is a little high, but it's worth it.
I only tried the travel size of this mascara, but it became my absolute favorite. I have seen the price for the full size tube and it is definatly on the price side, but worth it. This mascara did not clump for me, made my lashes separated, and long. This is one of the best!
