FYI product contains 4.5% formaldehyde - that is why it works and it works very well. Make sure to use it as directed...
I have the professional size of this item so I love the packaging relative to the consumer size packaging. This product is amazing and is expensive at first but you use so very little of it that overall it is an excellent price. i use this all over my face, the smell is divine and so relaxing if you actually do their recommended type of facial massage as you apply it and inhale the delightful smell with each movement of your hands across your face. This leaves my skin sooooo smooth supple and really balances out the sensitive areas. Also this does NOT create additional blackheads on my Tzone or cause any breaks outs - which is a huge plus for me, that i can actually use it all over my combo skin. My only negative would be that even though i use 2 drops it still takes a relatively long time to be absorbed by my skin so it is a prolonged routine.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cleanser. I have sensitive cheeks, prone to dryness and oily t zone prone to blackheads. Well this stuff is sooooo smoothing and relaxing and yet it cleans away all the gunk and leaves my skin soft and supple with NO TIGHTNESS. My only beef is that the flip top of the cap doesnt easily align with the upper hole and I can not close the bottle- this has happend to two bottles so far.
So far I think it is an excellent product. It absorbs fast, goes on smooth and doesn't leave my skin feeling heavy and clogged. I do like the doppler bottle but this product is expensive, however I can not really think of another product that offers similar results. This is hydrating enough yet light enough that you can put on a variety of other creams/serums/oils etc and not feel overpowered. I use this on my sensitive cheeks that are prone to getting dry patches in winter and get very red. So far it just creates an excellent balance. I do not use this on my Tzone . BTW it leaves my hands feeling amazing!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Feria Color Moisturizing Treatment.

Wow i did not even know that they finally started selling this product without the hair coloring kits. Back when Feria came out on the market I was a teenager and i was obssessed with this conditioner and quite upset that i had to spend 10$ on the whole Feria coloring kit- honestly- and I am not proud of this now-but i have picked out conditioners from the boxes and put them in the other boxes to get extra tubes- this was the BEST stuff I ever found in a drugstore and if I was not using Kerastase I would use this stuff. However I do not know about its build up potential as I always had long long hair and the small tubes from the coloring kits never lasted long enough to build up.
Ok this is a weird product for me because my husband likes the way it looks on me and I freaking HATE it within a week. I used "downtown brown" and on more than one occassion- i actually still have an unopened box in the closet for "future use" that hopefully i will never use. I have dark brown white girl hair- that when lightened goes into the red spectrum- not brown, so getting that cool brown on me is very hard because tones of auburn, copper or mahogony always come through. This color gets me lighter definatley but it goes into this weird orangey-super high brassy shade- which- looks ok for the first week or so because the brown aspect of it has not faded much- BUT_within a week when it fades it is freaking NASTY - super orangey brass crap- and i hate it! My husband is just happy that it is lighter and really doesnt see anything wrong with it- I am very pale skinned so anything but my natrually dark dark hair makes him happy but he clearly has no sence in what good hair color should look like. This color needs an application of toner to remove that brassiness from it, or it just needs to stay in the store and away from your hair.

Hair Styling Tools -Solano - HAI Convertable Flat Iron

ok, so i used to swear by this or chi, even though hai was definatly better then chi. Then recently i bought a T3 Tourmaline and let me tell you.. its AMAZING!!!! much better then HAI or chi!! hai is excellent and ts prce s less than the T3's but t3 is definatley better
i love love this mascara, i do recommend that about every two weeks you wash your mascara brush otherwise all mascara clumps.
its ok, but not my thing. its too harsh. and its way to hard for the face, like sand paper.
i love this parfume. i can totally see why someone would hate it as it is an aquired smell. Its somewhat cinnamony and spicey and sweet and chocolatey and some patoulie.
i love it, its really smooth but light. works well for me
Conditioner -TiGi - Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor
malishka31 5/20/2005 10:09:00 PM
i used to swear by this until i found kerastase. its a decent daily condioner for me, not a "reconstructer" .. its texture is thik but i guess the content isnt actually very high in deep condioning agents.
no better than pantene pro v or any other drug store product. really not worth the price for the results, i was not impressed.
