I have very long bleached hair And the last time that I went to the hairdresser I got a chemical burn on my scalp, Had scabs for three weeks And lost about 25% of my hair. I normally use kerastase products, their nutritive line, But for the kind of damage that I suffered it just wasn't enough. I remembered that I got the shampoo and conditioner as a gift with my last 100 percent pure order, So I decided to give these products a shot. After only one use I could tell it was a big difference, The scabs were hearing and my scalp was no longer itchy, My hair felt less damaged and I could style it without using any harsh styling products (Just used the bit of Moroccan oil on my ends )and very little heat. I've now used both the shampoo and conditioner quite a few times And I would highly recommended for people that have dry hair or dry scalp or chemically treated hair. Is true that it doesn't have the best consistency or packaging and you have to be careful when you use it because it's very runny but it definitely does the job that it's supposed to do and that is to moisturize your scalp and your hair. These products give me hope that I will not have to cut off my hair due to the damage and I'll keep on using them, at least during the winter time. 100% pure Just came out with a few other shampoos and conditioners and I will try their other kinds during summer when my hair might not need as much moisture as it does now. If I can make one suggestion to the company it would be to use a pump bottle to avoid leakage of the shampoo. On a separate note, for people that color and bleach their hair, The next time but I died my hair I will use the organic haircolor system that you can find in more and more salons these days, Two of my friends have tried these products with great results so I shall give my review after i experience it myself.
Mascara -100 Percent Pure - Fruit Pigmented ultra lengthening mascara

I really like the idea all natural products and the ingredients list on this one is just fantastic. Unfortunately it's one of the worst mascaras I've ever tried. I have naturally long and thick lashes, But they're not very dark so I use mascara To give them color and help with the unruliness (My lashes and to curb the other way around and to get in my eyes). This mascara barely coats the lashes and Has zero staying power. Even the dollar store mascara or an elf mascara does a way better job than this one. It was therefore a total waste of money, I'll Keep on searching for a natural or almost natural mascara So that I can keep my eyelashes healthy.
Ingredients: Exclusive Essential Oils of Immortelle, Concrete of Iris, Roman Camomile, Geranium, Magnolia and Lupine concentrate. The main drawback of this product is its price. I have dehydrated dry skin Somewhat and an even skin tone and barely any wrinkles. It's soon dry skin but there's nothing for the dehydration part. The smell is nice very natural. It does have a mild exfoliating effect do that the natural essential oils. It is targeted for mature skin, being in my 30s I don't consider that I do have mature skin and I find it doesn't have very potent on anti aging properties. Bottom line I would suggest this to women in their 30's That are looking for an all-natural product to soothe dry skin. I bought mine on eBay Where i found it for more reasonable price.

I have dehydrated/dry skin. This product is a nice basic moisturizer for dry skin, but not for dehydration. The list if ingredients is short and natural and it will most likely not cause problems for sensitive skin. It is an oily products so better suited for nighttime use. I would Probably enjoyed this product more in my 20s, But being in my mid 30s I need something more antiaging properties That addresses the dehydration issues I'm having with my skin. I will keep on using this product during summer time Or if I go on vacation somewhere tropical, It really soothes the skin after sunbathing. That being said, I would strongly suggest this to women in their 20s would dry skin that just need a basic moisturizer.
Treatments -Shiseido - Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum

I've been using this product for 6 months now. My skin normally looks pretty good, but it gets dehydrated and flaky in winter. I find this product to be a very good makeup base/primer and to calm the skin. Besides that, I don't think it does much anti-aging wise. Most of my beauty products are natural (100% pure, Dr Hauschka, Reviva Labs and essential oils blends) and they work much better than any high end/ big cosmetic companies products that I've used (Shisheido, Chanel, Dior, Clarins, 3LAB, Guerlin, Clé de Peu, etc). I get influenced by the hype surrounding a new product and go buy it. It's true that these brands have very nicely packaged items that look and smell great, but natural ingredients are best. So, bottom line is that this is amazing under my mineral powder, (so I'll buy it again as a primer) and prevents my skin from further drying in winter, but for 60-100$ (price tag in Canada) there are better and more natural products that counteract wrinkles, firm the skin and add radiance.
