You can add me to the list of people who initially loved it, esp. with a "skunk brush" application, BUT low and behold, I also started developing these strange dry patches! Again, never had a dry patch on my face EVER! SO, I dunno.??? I wanted this to work out for me, but I guess not.

I am still dealing with a hive/rash reaction to this product and the dusting powder. I thought at first it was something else I was using, but when using this again and I got the same week long reaction (terrible burning, itching, swelling etc) I have to throw it away. This isn't to say that this will happen to everyone, but I don't even have sensitive skin and I had this reaction.
I was expecting great things from this, but man, it is probably one of the worst shampoo/conditioner combo I have ever used. Left my hair unmanageable and almost fuzzy. Will not repurchase. Awful.
Self Tanners -Neutrogena - MicroMist Tanning (Medium 2 shades darker)

I haven't used self tanner in years, but being that I'm in Chicago and I never seem to see the sun, I figured what the hell? I like this product. I probably have to try it again to get the technique down, but the color is subtle and not overly dark, which is good. After all, I can't go from glow in the dark white to bright bronze overnight!!! I would repurchase! It doesn't smell great, but after a shower the following day, you can't smell that fake tanner smell anymore. Give it a try!

Like much of the gals on here, I was intrigued by the Wen product, but just couldn't see spending that much on a shampoo. So, when I saw the reviews on her for an alternative available at Sally's, I had to run out and get it. I got back home, hopped in the shower and gave it a whirl. Honestly, I thought at first, my hair does not feel clean...I don't think this stuff is working. The results showed after I got done and dried my hair. Amazing stuff. My hair is already very black and shiny, but this added more life to it. I bought the Jojoba for color treated and noticed the water didn't run black in the shower after rinsing. I will buy again without a doubt! Try it girls!
This stuff is amazing. I absolutely am in love with it. Does not smell foody or like car freshner, which some coconut vanillas can. This is a fantastic summer fragrance!

Love this product! I had a slight scar on my chin from a home electrolysis mess up (girls, seriously leave that to the professionals and don't do it yourself!) and this faded the mark SIGNIFICANTLY! Love that its all natural, a ton of product and I even like that it looks like something you'd pick up in a voodoo shop....but I'm a little dark like that!
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Walgreens - Alpha Hydroxy Lotion 8%

I remember using this about 10 years ago when the AHA revolution first happened. Of course, I was 10 years younger then and probably didn't really need it. In any case, as the years went on, I became a bit of a product snob and spent TONS of money on high end skin care. I forgot about this product until I saw the reviews on here. I ran to Walgreens and bought some and guess what? It is pretty awesome. My skin feels great, some purging, but that's okay, and I spent only $5.99!!!! Try it ladies. You might just be surprised that you don't have to spend a fortune to get results.
I got this whole set from QVC- seemed like a good deal. Maybe it is just me, but I tell ya, it makes my hair seem clumpy. Static and flyaways seem to be more of an issue after using this as well. Has anyone else seen the "clumpiness" in your hair after using this product? Maybe it just isn't right for my hair. Ugh. So disappointed. I really wanted this one to work!
