Alright honestly - this stuff is pretty awesome. I've always ever gone darker with my hair since I knew I would look awful as a blonde - but I wanted to try it so bad. I figured I'd dip my toes in and try ombre... at the very least, if it looked awful I could cut it off. Well, wow - it has been a complete uphill battle trying to get my hair blonde. Seriously, it wouldn't go past the orange stage no matter what I tried. I bleached it about 3 times - each spread 2 weeks apart, all while deep conditioning my hair in between. I tried all sorts of toners and toning shampoos. NOTHING worked. I really didn't want to bleach my hair any more and risk serious damage. I tried this shampoo as a fed up last resort before giving up and cutting it off - no results on day one, which is what I expected. However after one week (washing my hair every couple days and leaving the shampoo in for a couple minutes each time) - WOW. Not as perfect as I'd like, but such an amazing improvement on the orange mess it was. I don't write product reviews often, so when I do - it's saying something. Definitely worth a shot. Remember - it's not going to make your hair LIGHTER, but it definitely helps erase a lot of the unsightly brass tones. Give it at least a few shampoos until you judge. Good luck!

I've been visiting this site for about a year, but actually never left a review before. However, upon using this face scrub, I just felt like I had to share my experiences with it. I've never had that many problems with my complexion, I've tried a few facial cleansers but none have ever seemed to do anything for me. I picked this up at Sallys on a sort of whim, I had started getting a few random pimples and wanted to try something that would cleanse a little deeper. After just the first time using it, I noticed how much BRIGHTER my face looked. It seriously glows after using it, which my face has never done. Also my face has never felt so soft, even after a serious work out with my face covered it sweat - my face still felt soft. Plus, it smells so good. I'm literally shocked at how much it's done for my face, especially considering how cheap it is. Definitely will repurchase. If you're on the fence about it, it's definitely worth a try!
