Styling Products -Jonathan - Product Create Volume Thickening Foam
jbkoenig 4/21/2007 2:05:00 PM
I have shoulder length, slightly wavy hair which is colored. This foam, as others have stated, comes out a bit watery. (I think that Ojon has a better product). I use it at the roots at the crown of my head. Using it elsewhere created frizz and a greasy look. As for volumizing, it does work create, I can create a wonderful lift for my layered look. Best to try this before you buy it. Oh, using my T3 dryer also created tons of volume with this product. I would rather use the hairdryer and my FF brush rather than this foam!
Oh Jonathan, I am deeply disappointed! My love affair with Silky Dirt brought me to your volumizing product...and alas, I am let down. I love the show, love the vibrance of your style, but this product turns my hair into a total mess. I have shoulder length, colored hair, average in texture, but often just not enough ooph. The shampoo, I feel, is harsh, leaving my hair dry, frizzy and totally unmanageable. I am heartbroken having spent lots of money, but hey, can't get everything right!

I bought this after reading tons of reviews. I have moderately naturally curly hair, about a 2B that needs umph especially during the dry winter months in the North East. Usually I am able to get away with a spray gel, light drying and scrunching. The lack of humidity makes me a bit frizzy, so I was hoping this product would smooth some of those kinks and fly aways out....unforetunatly it made my hair flatter, although it was a nice shine. the smell is nice and refreshing. I am saving it now until summer and see if it helps when there is humidity in the air. But overall, I was bummed and still looking for something that I am use without tons of extra help along with way to keep my hair in curls all year long!
I am still not too sure if I like this product. It is supposed to protect my face from free radicals etc. But after I put it on, I think I look shiny and it takes a really matte foundation to cover it up. I also seem to be oilier later in the day. Perhaps I am using too much?
I love this facial scrub. It is grainy, but I use gentle circular movements and it treats my skin great. The jar is awkward, but I love the smell and the silky results I get from using it. I use it in the am only followed by other arcona products like magic white ice and desert mist.
Skincare - Face -Arbonne - Exfoliating Masque with Thermal Fusion

I tried this product because we sell it where I work. CLients have been raving about it. The first time I used it I left it on for only 2 minutes (max time is only 5 min). It burned, but a burn that tells you it is actually doing something. I totally recommend doing this before bed, because you'll have quite a red face! The first few times I used it, my skin was soft and silky. Then I started to breakout and my pores got larger. AFter some research, I found out tthe Masque and the entire line contain ingrediants that I am allergic to...mostly plants like clover and dandelion. So, for those who can tolerate the ingrediants, I have seen amazing results, but for me personally, I am searching for something that likes me too!
