I have thick dry curly hair and after reading the reviews here I decided to try this product.It says it is for ultra dry hair so I thought this may be heavy for my hair but in the end it even dried my hair. Booo :( It is a pity since I liked the fact that this product is fragrance free.

Well this conditioner really does a good job, I've dry, thick curly hair and whatever conditioner i use either doesn't moisturize enough or weighs my hair down. Well this does both, it moisturized my hair very well and tamed my frizzes and after a 3 week use I had no frizz which is a miracle! I was in love with this product at first but I noticed that even though i clarified my hair frequently, this conditioner weighed my hair down and I had a very hard time removing the buildup :( Another weird point is that although it moisturized my hair well, it couldn't soften my hair...Well maybe i can still use this conditioner from time to time but only as a deep treatment.
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios XL SPF 60 Fluide Extreme

I think this is the worst sunscreen for someone with sensitive skin so if you have sensitive skin i suggest you skip it. It has a high alcohol content and irritated by skin TERRIBLY! It caused red bumps and stang my face upon application which were intolerable. Other than that if your skin can tolerate this, it is a very good sunscreen with high protection. It didn't make my face an oil slick and it didn't look greasy on me and i have oily skin.It also doesn't clog pores and is not very water resistant. It could easily be rinsed by a normal cleanser. I wish it didn't irritate my skin.
Update: Unfortunately this cleanser has been reformulated and made me break out, it was almost my HG product though :( I love this cleanser, it doesn't leave a film on my face and it doesn't dry out my skin, cleanses very well.Though it is cheap, I have to use a large amount but this is the only downside for me.
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Hydraphase XL SPF 15 UVA 12

Actually I bought this with high hopes as the reviews were so great but it was a total disappointment.Before I was using Anthelios XL fluid extreme spf 60 but due to high alcohol content it irritated my skin and turned it into a mess. Still I wanted a sunscreen with high ppd so I decided to give this a try. First of all this product is fragranced which is a huge negative for me.Also it doesn't moisturize and even makes my skin dry and look dull and at the same time it is shiny on my face! It clogged my pores and caused large bumps and irritated my skin(not as much as anthelios flud extreme but at least that didn't clog my pores!).Not a great option for sensitive skin imo.
Like all the other Vichy products this gave me clogged pores, irritated my skin. My skin gave a severe reaction and I wasted so much money for it! Nothing can make my buy this again I'd rather not wear any ss

This product irritated my skin horribly! It smelled plain alcohol,dried my skin and I had red bumps around my chin thanks to this product. Definitely the worst choice.
