I think it is so hard to tell what is working and what isnt when i am using no less than 5 or 6 products on a day. But this seems to be a pretty reliable, yummy smelling gel. i have that dry curly hair that is so high maintanence. this does a pretty good job of keeping things soft, shiny and looking like hair instead of a chemistry experiment gone rather bad.
this stuff works really good, smells really good, and smooths really well. it is certainly a bit expensive, but it does a nice job. it is not one that melts while you are using it. it also does not leave you oily, just soft.
i just needed to tell people that these are really nice. i love the texture, and the smooth color. simple cream color that is just pretty.
i really like this stuff, and it is a good escape for those who, like myself, are trying to get away from the body shop. but i put this on under the gloves for the night and everything looks a lot better in the morning. i think if i did it every night that my hands would look perfect, but i am too lazy for that. but when i start noticing that my hands need some love and put this on, they are grateful.
I got gash too. it is really pretty. has decent staying power. has this great bronze-y effect. lots of pr points. update: i still love it and think it is beautiful.
yes, sticky. but they are also really really pretty. and i have had good experience with MAC: in that they let me return things, after i tried them on, when i didnt like the color.

i dont like the whole avon aesthetic, however good their politics are. but this stuff is really nice. it is very yummy smelling. it doesnt melt. it doesnt leave you oiled. it just does a good job of scrubbing and smelling really good.
This comes in really pretty colors, but it is sticky, and does somehow also manage to slide all over the lips.
This is real lipstick. It is substantial, and really feels like you are putting something on your lips, and has some staying power. There is just something nice about putting something on your lips that has some gravitas. It reminds me of the lipstick that my mom had when i was a little girl, that i liked to get into and pilfer.
I think that this stuff looks really cool. It is not sticky, and just looks kind of magical.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Almond Oil Daily Hand & Nail Cream

a little expensive, but it does a nice job. it also smells really nice. an addendum: the body shop is now owned by l'oreal- animal testing subterfuge, owned in large part by nestle: actively promoting infant formula to impoverished nations. those who shopped body shop for their ethics should go elsewhere- i am.
this is a great lotion, at any price. it is also a great value. one thing i like about it is that it is not sticky. it is not a hand treatment, it is an everyday lotion. really, you can spend a lot more and get a lot less.
Really nice stuff. with curly hair, i am a big fan of these AG things. i use this + recoil and give it a plop: my hair looks and feels pretty nice. seems to last a while; you dont need to use a bunch
I think that this does a great job for my curly hair. i actually havent found anything that makes my hair look better. not crunchy, unless you put in too much. not sticky. i dont find it to be hard to distribute if you scrunch it in. also really nice that not tested on animals update: i still like this, but you really have to be sparing, otherwise it will be crunchy
I like this stuff. (me: long naturally curly) First. of all it smells really, really good. The texture is no more difficult to manage than any thick pomade. Mostly i use it as such. But i also like to mix it with leave in treatments for extra richness and to help with bad-smelly ones.
