For me, this is a totally useless product. As a spot treatment, it pretty much did nothing for me and the packaging is not easy to use nor is it hygienic.
I had high expectations with this hair mask after reading the great reviews below, but this did not do much for my hair even if I followed the exact directions. I even used the Philip B condition in conjunction with with, but for me it did not live up the hype.
Conditioner -John Masters - Citrus & Neroli Detangler

I used a sample of this and loved it. Then I went out and bought the full size bottle afterwards. Unfortunately it was not for my fine hair. It was great at first, then after a month, my hair started to get greasy and limp.
Treatments -Ren - Omega 3 Overnight Lipid Renewal Serum

I think this should be called an oil instead of a serum. For my combination skin, I can only use it in winter. One pump is enough for the entire face. It absorbs quickly and I'm okay with the scent. The next morning my skin feels supple and soft. The only issue I have is that the bottle is too big to be used up in one winter season even if I use it every night.
Overall I like this lip balm as it moisturizes nicely but I think the citrus/lemon smell is too much. My favorite organic lip balm would still have to be lavera
Treatments -Kose - Cosme Decorte Moisture Liposome

This is probably my 3rd or 4th bottle and it has become a staple item for winter. The serum soaks in right away and does not feel greasy. It kept my skin hydrated in heated rooms. I just wish the price is lower.
It somehow reminds of the peeling product from Clarins, but I liked Clarins much better. For a mask, I would like to see some noticeable different after using it, but this is not the one for me.
I tried out this product from a set. It does not feel moisturizing enough for my combination skin so I will probably not purchase the full size.
Cleansers -Ren - Mayblossom and Blue Cypress Facial Wash

This is a gentle cleanser. I have combination skin and I felt like the cleansing power is not strong enough. It did not cause any irritation but nor was there anything special about it. I like the cleansing gel from Juice Beauty much better.
Treatments -Ren - Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask

I got this from a set that purchased. I used up the 0.5oz tube in a few weeks and honestly did not feel much change on my skin after using the mask. It did not cause any irritation.
I got this from a set. I like the volumizing effect of the shampoo, but it is just a little too invigorating to use with the high concentration of peppermint oil. After shampooing, my whole face would be covered in the cooling peppermint sensation from this and it is just too much.
The is a very gentle mask and because of it, it does not do much. I have been mainly using it around the eye area when I'm doing other masks and it does not irritate at all.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Rahua - Voluminous Conditioner

I used a 2oz sample of this conditioner and did not find anything spectacular about it. It provides light conditioning without weighing down fine hairs. But I could do the same thing with John Masters conditioner at much less. Philip B's conditioner is a better choice if I am going to pay that much for a conditioner.
It was on super sale so I decided to give it a try. The smell was bad and I felt like putting industrial chemicals on my face. But I tried it anyways. It burned quite a bit and I had to wash it off half way. The 2nd time I tried it was a little better, but I can't see any effect of the mask on my face after I wash it off.
It is a review for the new version with the brush. It is pricey but I like the convenience of having the brush and the color was soft and natural. I have 01 in pink and 02 in apricot and I love them both. They are staple items for traveling.
