Wow I'm surprised at the overall reviews of this product. This is one of the best moisturizers I've ever used and I've used them ALL. The MUA gave me a sample because he raved about it. After I finished the sample I purchased a full size. I have combo skin and when using this my makeup didn't slide off my face 3hrs into the day which usually happens towards the warmer months. I had been using caudalie which I still like. My feels supple. The MUA informed me that this product will moisturize areas that need it and control oil in places that need it! I agree. Everyones skin is obviously different but it worked well on mine

Wow wow wow! I love this foundation for the flawless look it gives my skin. I think this is my HG for foundation. It effortlessly glides onto my skin and blends well! The color match is what i was sold on. I never heard too much about this line but i grew tired of my coveted Nars sheer matte & Giorgio armani because I would come up in pictures not looking as good as I thought. I was running out of my Nars and was on a foundation frenzy. The only thing I don't like is the packaging bc it's more hygienic to have a pump. But whatever, with the way my face looks I can deal with it
I loooove this color. I finished an entire bottle and decided to shop around for new foundations. Well I did a full circle and I'm back!!!! I wear color 9 incase inquiring minds wanted to know. This color sinks right into my skin effortlessly. I used them all. Mac..Estee lauder. Mufe.benefit. Smashbox. Bobbi Brown etc.. Im finishing up a bottle of Nars which I still like but I love how Armani looks on me better. It gives me a dewy flawless complexion and never cakey.
I can say this eyeshadow has become a staple makeup product that will remain relevant in my makeup bag for some time to come. As far as application goes I will say that I must use a primer with this which is a bit of a hassle. If I don't then it doesn't look its full potential on my lid. This color is wonderful to use for a smokey eye. I use this along with cork and I smudge typographic and waaaaala. But I would def suggest u wearing the mac primer pot!
I love this product! Why??? Because it does exactly what it claims to do! I have mix textured hair and for the most part my hair does well but is definitely On the drier side. With that said I easily can tell which products are moisturizing after the first use and this one is. Not heavy or leaves any gunky residue. However it's a leave in so you can't pound the product on as if it was a traditional conditioner that you'd wash. Any great product that u pound on is bound to leave residue. I left this product for a while bc Im a woman and Ofcourse it's our nature to look for something "better" even if what we have works perfectly and when I stopped using this I noticed that my hair lacked the shine & overall healthy appearance it use to have with this product

I love this color.. Another way to solve the streakiness problem is to use a base coat before you apply plus i also found that u must apply the color in thin coats spreading it evenly over nail.. I have not had any streakiness I watched the nail techs at the salon and with my own trial And error
Conditioner -Matrix - Biolage Ultra Hydrating Conditioning Balm

I loveee this conditioner and it truly deserves all the praise it gets bc it does what it's suppose to. I have a mixed texture which I relax about 2x a year. I've used every conditioner on the market.. My most recent indulgence was kerastase slim cond. Which doesn't even come close to bioloage. Disappointing for 65 bucks. But Im amazed at how well this works. For protein I use apogee and bc u need a moisturizing cond I reach for this to soften my hair and I have the most touchable hair afterwards!!!! Hair is shiny and looks amazing. This is my HG for moisture!!!!
I love this color and completely agree with the above review.. Wish I would've gotten this color months ago. I'm not into trying new colors. I usually wear beiges and nude hues but this color is hotttt. I can't stand loud colors that scream cheap so I cautious but I took a risk and I'm loving this color

A huge fan of this. One of the best treatments in a vial ever! My hair was so shiny and healthy looking. I do recommend using entire vial so u get full benefits!
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Keracare detangling moisturizing shampoo
dollface29 7/20/2011 2:27:00 AM
I do like this shampoo. It satisfies me in knowin my hair will be clean and moisturized. However to use this every single time to wash hair is not good in my opinion bc it can build up a bit. I alternate btw this and mizani. I also use many products from spain. But this suffices! If your suffering from really dry hair that can't withstand to much stripping of the hair then I would deff go with this!!
I used this a while back but I moved on to ultimate elixir oil by kerastase which is far more superior! First off I have mix textured hair so I love moisture. I bought this over a yr back and used it consistently for 6 months. My hair is nice and long and I noticed that in the beginning my hair had great shine to it but as the months went by no bueno!!! My Luxurious locks werent so shiny and seemed and my hair was just weird. Even ppl I knew were like what's up with your hair. I knew it was the oil contributing. Months ago when ordering products this lady mentioned that Moroccan oil was not all the hype bc the silicone in it makes your hair dry hard over time and become a little strawish. What she said is what I experienced!!! My hair went from fab to flab! My hair is once again amazing since I switched! One thing I can say is beware of silicone products.
Amazing stuff. I do agree that this is better than morrocan oil. I have a mixed grade of hair and this works very well in my hair. Tremendous difference in the health of my hair. It's expensive but lasts and well worth it!
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Mizani - Botanifying Conditioning Shampoo

Best shampoo! I've used them all. I've found that domincan conditioners work better in My hair but when it comes to shampoo I love this particular one by mizani. Cleanses very well and doesn't coat strands like most shampoos targeted for certain hair types.
Although this doesn't seem too popular bc of the reviews I really like this color alot. The trick to making this color work is all in the application!!! I've become a pro at doing my own nails so I didn't experience the streak issue
Its not pure black soap but it's still does a great job. I stumbled upon this at a natural food market and I got hooked. Now Ive got OCD when it comes to taking showers and I switch to different body washes bc I freqently run out ESP bc my bf uses a lot of soap too. With that said I do believe the times that ive used this on and off has done my body good w polishing off some light scars. I need to stock up on a few bottles so I can use it more consistently. I usually use an exfoliating glove when using this. Love the scent too!
