I first saw this conditioner when I went home for Christmas. It was my sister-in-law's and she left it in the shower and told me I could use it after raving about it! I was a little hesitant at first because I used the Organix conditioner in Coconut Milk and it was like I didn't use a conditioner at all! But, I decided to give this a try. The smell is amazing. My hair is very thin so I used it on the ends only and just smoothed a small, pea sized amount on the rest and the result was amazing! My hair was silky and manageable! (and the smell remained even after blow drying) I bought some of my own a few weeks ago and it's my new favorite conditioner!

This is the only thing that keeps my breakouts at bay. I've used this consistently for the past couple of years. It makes my skin feels soft and incredibly clean. I buy it in the tub and I use this in the morning and at night. My husband has suffered from acne since he was a preteen and this has helped him considerably! It's a holy grail product of mine!
I have an oily tzone as well as dry, flaky patches on my cheeks. my skin is also acne prone. Usually, a new product will break me out and I'm very apprehensive about buying toners/moisturizers. This toner has made my skin incredibly soft! It smells amazing and I use it every night and every morning before I put my makeup on. My husband even commented on how soft my skin was. It's a great product and it drys out my oily spots without overdrying the rest of my skin. I'll definitely continue buying this!

Another holy grail beauty product. The smell is amazing, and the product itself is inexpensive and moisturizes well without being greasy.

This has replaced my conditioner in the shower! Now, I just shampoo and rinse, then put this on when I get out and I'm good to go. I saw a few reviews saying it left their hair greasy, and I'm glad I didn't see those before I bought this product or that would have scared me away from it. I have really thin hair, but this leaves it soft and silky and really manageable! It also gives it body. The scent is amazing and I consider this one of my holy grail beauty products.
Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Creme

I bought this with the Queen Helene 100% Cocoa Butter stick. I thought I'd check it out because my elbows have become unbearably dry and flaky. I expected the smell to be more "chocolate-y", but it's nothing too offensive. Just sort of has a waxy, sunblock smell. I dipped my fingertip into the jar and got a little out. As I spread it on my elbow, I noticed the consistency was entirely too greasy. Some reviews say that people who say it's too greasy are crazy, and vise versa, but I cannot stand extremely oily lotions. This is one of the greasiest lotions I've come across. However, this product has such positive reviews, I decided to use it on my feet. When I put it on, I put socks on as well. I'll probably use this product on my feet when I go to bed at night. If it really moisturizes well, I'll buy it again for this purpose alone. I think products are hit or miss, and it's different for everyone. There are A LOT of positive reviews, so I suggest trying it, definitely.
