i LOVE LOVE LOVE this scent! first smelled it when i was 11 when a friend's mother wore it, loved it then, love it now. my boyfriend recently bought me the set, and i'm thrilled! in my opinion, the scent is pretty darn close to perfect. it smells like the perfect spring or summer day. just smelling it makes me so happy :D
huge disappointment! so far i've used three times and my hair could not look any less shiny :( it's so dull now, no shine AT ALL. don't know why this doesn't work for me. i rinsed with cold water. maybe i used too much? i sure didn't use too little. waste of money for me...
ugh! i want this so bad but it seems to be out of stock everywhere, at least online. so annoying!!!
I ordered 10 vials of this from ebay and was siked about trying it, however I didn't get any noticeable results. My hair is fairly damaged so I assumed I would see some kind of result, but pretty much nothing occured. I don't know if I got a bad batch or what. But it didn't do anything for my hair really.
simply put, this stuff did NOTHING for my hair. n-o-t-h-i-n-g. this stuff sucks! i don't understand all the great reviews about it, but i'm glad it worked for someone, because it didn't do anything at all for my hair! fyi, i have highlighted, color-treated curly hair of medium length. i've had much better luck with joico's intense hydrator as well as sundari's neem and coconut oil.
this product made my eyelashes FALL OUT!!!! especially on my right eye. there is a very significant patch of very short little eyelashes where there used to be long ones. the long ones started falling out after i started using this product. ironically, only significantly on my right eye. only a little bit on my left. i kept using this, hoping that this was some short of "shedding" period or some bs i tried to tell myself, and i really should have stopped. before the rest of my eyelashes fall out!!! seriously i was am so pissed. i just got the Jan Marini intervention eyelash in the mail today, and started it tonight. hopefully this one won't make my lashes fall out too! btw, i got the Revitalash from Skinstore.com which is a pretty reputable e-store, so i don't think that the formula is bogus or expired, altho i guess it could be.
this stuff is the BUSINESS. seriously AMAZING!!! and i have tried EVERYTHING from kerastase, sisley, fekkai, terax, the new shu uemura line, i'm telling you, all hair products known to man. this in combination with my Sundari Neem and Coconut Treatment Oil have turned my dry, damaged, frizzy, huge hair into super shiny silk!!!! and i have never had shiny hair once in my 24 years until i started using these two products. its truly a christmas miracle! also the overall look and feel to my hair is hair commercial worthy. i can't even tell you how many compliments i've recieved in the past 3 weeks i've been using this stuff. so, that's my story. despite being an absolute hair and beauty junkie, few things inspire me enough to actually write a review about them, but I just had to with this because my search for a holy grail hair regimen is over!
got this after reading raves about it Lucky Magazine. provides excellent, natural looking coverage (if you don't overdo it), but as i just got off of accutane, i'm finding this a wee bit too drying, which is making it look a little cakey and accentuating dry spots and fine lines. so i'm thinking of diluting it with a little moisturizer and seeing if that helps. i'm thinking that this foundation is more suitable for oilier skin types in general tho. i'm guessing my oily skin is going to resurface at some point after being off the tane for a while so i'm going to keep this around, cuz the coverage and finish is so lovely, when done correctly. also, you really don't need powder with this. which is a crazy conception for me to try and fathom, as i used to have the oiliest skin on earth, so not using powder is very difficult for me to comprehend and put into practice. but when i forego the powder its not cakey at all, nor shiny, just lovely looking.
5 years ago i had to special order this stuff from THE NETHERLANDS and now it's on the shelves of my local Target. hahaha...how times do change...also, i want to reiterate the point someone made about Nature's Therapy being the same. it is not. my bf is a chemist and he said the same thing, that products can have the same ingredients but if they're in different concentrations they have much different effects. to put it simply, let's take chocolate milk. you can make a glass with milk and a teaspoon of chocolate. not very yummy. or you can make a glass with a tablespoon of chocolate. much yummier :) yet if you listed their ingredients, they would be the same, milk and chocolate. i'm sure this will not put an end to the "nature's therapy mask is the same as masquintense!" debate, but um it's annoying, because they're not :)
Treatments -Redken - All Soft Addictive Hair Transformer [DISCONTINUED]

this was discontinued :( WAAAAAAAAAAAH
I have a love/hate relationship with Tazorac. I have been using it for 5 years to battle acne. (Backstory: I've had acne since I was 10, used Retin-A with great results until I was 18 when suddenly my hormones went crazy and it stopped working so they upped me to .1% Taz.) For 5 years the Taz has kept me pretty damn clear, but the price you pay is awful. Even though the skin is clear of acne, it is ALWAYS red/raw/dry yet oily and generally not pretty looking. Even though you have NO ACNE at all you still have to wear make-up when using this to make your skin look normal. Also, and this is my biggest pet peeve, it makes the skin on your face a completely different color than the rest of your body. Your face will never tan, it will only burn. I have an olive complexion but because of the Taz my face is a pinky/reddish white. Which is just lovely looking, I assure you. It also makes your skin extremely fragile because it is always exfoliating the first layer of skin on your face, so don't pick. However the good about this is that red marks go away much faster because of that constant exfoliation/skin reformation. Tazorac also does nothing to slow oil production. I actually think my skin has gotten oiler if that's even possible. Recently, I've started breaking out again a little bit so I think I'm done with all of this and just going straight for the Accutane. Hopefully that will take care of it and for once I will be able to have great skin and not have to cover it in harsh prescription creams, 1000 moisturizers and pounds of makeup. Dare to dream!
This is a fantastic product. I use Tazorac Cream .1% on my face for acne, which leaves my skin a red, dry yet oily, irritated mess. The Tazorac constantly exfoliates the first layer of my skin so the skin on my face is very thin and fragile and VERY easily damaged. If i so much as squeeze a pimple, my skin comes right off. I have found that Yon-ka 83 Creme has been a miracle product in it's moisturizing and healing abilities. And somehow it does not clog my pores. It actually seems to calm any acne I have, while healing old spots. I'm thinking of going on Accutane soon and I am so glad I found this! Truly a dream product. My HG!
Treatments -Fresh - Meadowfoam Cream Treatment Conditioner

Ok this is a great, unbelievable conditioner WHEN USED with Redken All Soft Addictive Hair Transformer...Spray in the All Soft,rinse out and then use the meadowfoam conditioner..the results are spectacular but only when i use these two products in conjunction. My hair has never looked better and I have chemically lightened blonde hair which is naturally a dark brown!
THHIS STUFF IS GREAT!!! I dont care how many people rag on terax crema because i have tried sooooo many conditioners/treatments for my very dry/overprocessed colored hair and this is BLOWS THEM ALL AWAY!!!! For me it works best to leave it in for at least 15 mins. I alternate between this and Kerastase Masquintense and my hair (which should be falling out by now) looks amazing (very VERY soft and shiny)!!! I seriously suggest giving it a try if your hair is damaged because it really is worth it...And you can handle the smell...Sure it isn't good but its bearable and your hair will thank you
Lip Gloss -Delux Beauty - Jasper Lipgloss [DISCONTINUED]

Ok so i've read alot of reviews that say this is too sheer and looks to clear on the lips....I thought so as well until i realized the reason it goes on so sheer...the reason is that the apllicator doesnt have enough of the product on it to really coat your lips...even if you dip it in 5 times...if u dip a lip brush in there you get much more gloss so you can actually get and see the gorgeous color on your lips and boy is it beautiful...i love it so much!! give it try it really works!! :)
