I thought this would be a great buy since I'm a big fan of the Chi flat iron. Paid $200 for this hair dryer, and upon first use I noticed it was much quieter than my non salon quality dryer. Worked just as well. Didn't notice a huge difference as far as results...my hair was dry, and that's it. I kept using it and had no complaints. Now, a year after I purchased it, it no longer blows hot air. I googled the problem and found that its super common with chi hairdryers. My warranty is out, so no help from the company. Awesome. Now I'm back to using my regular old target bought hair dryer and it's still going strong, despite being about 7 years old. Don't waste your money on this thing.
I haven't read all of the reviews for this product, but I just reviewed another product and am in a reviewing mood. I always check out reviews for products, and I'm glad I didn't see these before I started using bio oil. I love it. I haven't used it on stretch marks, since due to the nature of stretch marks there really is no product out there that can get rid of them. People that use this for stretch marks are hoping for too much, I think. You might as well try to change your genetics. This product is wonderful for moisturizing though. I use it on my face and neck, and I've seen huge improvements. My makeup applies better and looks better at the end of the day. I think the trick is not to apply too much and then hope your skin sucks it all up. I wash my face, and while it's still a little damp rub in the bio-oil. Go do something and allow it to sit on your skin for about 5-10 minutes, then come back and wipe away the excess with a wash cloth. Super soft skin. It has a light scent that I love, and my boyfriend loves it too. I was using hope in a jar by Philosophy as a moisturizer, but stopped using it before bed because he said it smelled so awful. I wasn't a fan of the smell either, and it didn't do for my skin what bio-oil does anyway. I have trouble with breakouts every now and then, and this stuff has drastically improved them, along with the dark spots that are left behind. I think my problem was that I was stripping my skin by over washing, causing more frequent and more intense breakouts. This returns the natural balance to my skin and it looks better than it has in a long time, so few breakouts. Moderately priced, a small bottle will last forever if your using it only on your face. I bought the generic from CVS, it had the same ingredients, after all. Well they must be in different concentrations because it didn't work the same. Love this stuff. I'm constantly trying tons of new products, and rarely does something work it's way into my daily routine. I've been using this for over a year now and I figure unless they finally invent something that blows me away, it'll stay that way for years to come. Don't write a bad review for something you've used once, especially if you don't know how to use it. I wouldn't want other women to not try something that works wonderfully because I wrote something after not giving it half a chance.

I always check out reviews for products before I buy them, even though I'm still mostly skeptical of them. I rarely write a review, matter of fact, don't know that I ever have. But I have to review this one. I got stopped at a kiosk in the mall on my vacation. I was impressed by the demonstration, but still wouldn't have bought the product if I hadn't been in spending mode and if my friend hadn't purchased it. I'm so glad I did. I took it back to the hotel and used it that night before I went out in Vegas. Immediately, my skin was noticably softer and my makeup went on better (I use bare escentuals and if you use it too you know that the smallest piece of dry skin becomes noticable.) The next morning, my face looked clear and some of the blotchiness was gone. I have breakouts from time to time, and over the years my skin has become uneven and just mottled looking. I used it the next morning. When I got home, I washed my face and was impressed. I used it again. The next morning, I'm dangerously close to going without makeup outside, something I never do, even when I run. I'm so excited about how it works and can't wait to see the long term results. So it has parrafin in it you say? That's what's rolling off my face, not dead skin? Ok. If it's wax that makes my skin like this, I'm ok with that. It's awesome. Non irritating. Scent free. No residue, matter of fact I haven't felt it necessary to rinse my face afterward. Skin feels amazing after you use it. Moisturizers and makeup apply beautifully. I'm looking for it online now, don't ever wanna run out. I paid $64 for the peel AND they gave me a full size milk cleanser, which I also love. Totally worth the money, and if I can't find it for the same price, I'll still buy it. Checked out graveyardmall.com, no luck. I'm so impressed, I try tons of different products. It's my fetish, skin care products and makeup. My bathroom is completely full of products I had high hopes for, but ended up at the back of the cabinets. This one is going to stay on my vanity sink. If you're a skeptic like I am, this is one of those rare ones you have to give a try. Totally in love.
