ive been using this conditioner and the matching shampoo for a month or so and my hair is a crispy mess! this conditioner doesn't even give that "slip" in wet hair that i'm used to with other conditioners. definitely not moisturizing or conditioning. my stylist was shocked at the condition of my hair and told my to throw it out! btw, my hair is thick, course, and generally dry
yeah this leaves my hair a crispy mess. my stylist was shocked at my ends and as soon as he used a quality shampoo on my hair, the problem was fixed. he told me to throw this crap away! so far i've been incredibly unimpressed with l'oreal evercreme line - absolutely no delivery on its promises. for reference, my hair is thick, course, and generally dry
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

well i hate to be a lone dissenter, but yeah, this is not good. i don't if i got a bad batch, but if not, i really don't like this product. it is way too wet right out of the tube and went on very goopy. by the time i could run a lash comb through, my lashes had hardened and cemented into black clumps. scary. definitely a spidery, spikey look - which is not what i want from mascara. i much prefer a softer, more natural look. great price, but not worth it when its virtually unusable. very disappointing considering all the hype.

ok, so i really wanted to love this, im a big fan of all of the LRP products i have used and continue to use. my skin is super dry and i thought this would help. as far as i can tell it made me drier. it feels great right when it goes on, but after a few minutes my skin feels uncomfortably tight and hot. i havent tried it since the weather has gotten warmer, so maybe i'll give it another chance, but my experience with it wasnt great.
i am sooo shocked by the bad reviews for this product - i had to chime in. i have been using this for years (im 33 now). i couldnt live without it. ive tried countless eye creams - kiehls, clinique, a few drugstore brands- you name it, and this is the best ive ever used. i have virtually no lines, no puffiness, and even though dark circles arent a problem for me, ive noticed when i dont use it the difference is noticeable - i look more tired and crepey. it is way more moisturizing than kiehls avocado (and less greasy too). best hydrating eye cream ive ever used - i hope to god they never stop making it!!
best cloths i've used so far. they are truly for sensitive skin, unlike some of the others that have broken me out (ahem, olay). i can't speak to the makeup removal because i only wear mascara, but it removes that easily. most nights i put my cetaphil cleanser on the cloth and wash my face, then rinse. no discernable scent, and leaves my face super soft. yay!
wow what a bummer. i thought this was a favorite of so many that i decided to cough up the money for it. it's super dry on the brush, and thus, dry on the lashes. it flakes onto my face and seems to fade throughtout the day, being almost invisible by 3 or 4 p.m. i've paid a fraction for mascaras that are way better - maybelline full n soft being my favorite

love this stuff! been wanting to jump on the argan oil bandwagon but it's always been waaayyy too expensive. this is only $8 and it makes my hair shiny and calm - which is major for my dry, course, wavy hair. if you're at your wit's end with what to do with your hair, definitely give this a try. worked for me:)

i rarely write reviews, but this stuff is worth it! i have super dry skin and this makes me soft and the smell is fantastic. the scent doesn't really last though, but it's great for a few hours after you put it on. i haven't tried it in the winter yet (which is the true test) but so far its very moisturizing - and dirt cheap!
Styling Products -Aussie - Catch the Wave Mousse + Leave-In Conditioner

This is my first review ever but i had to sing the praises of this product! I have very thick, naturally wavy, course hair that tends to be a frizzy mess. This mousse works perfectly. It reduces frizz, defines the waves and holds them for longer than other products i've tried, even very expensive ones! I just run it thru my hair after showering, let it air dry, and that's it. I highly recommend, especially if you have the frustrating hair type i have :)
