This is the best shampoo for my chemically-relaxed hair. It keeps it soft, silky and healthy. Plus, it doubles as a creamy body wash. Yes, the price is on par with brands like Bumble 'n' Bumble, Fekkai and others, but it is worth it.
I am not exaggerating when I say I've never had a conditioner wow me until I tried this. I've been using it for about 2.5 years. The thickness allows you to stretch it out over many uses, the scent is sweet and candy-like and it is even pretty to look at. I have neck-length, chemically relaxed hair. Using this, combined with the Enjoy Luxury Conditioning Shampoo, results in my hair consistently feeling soft and moisturized. As a bonus, it doubles as a wonderful shaving cream. I loved it so much I splurged on the Liter/Litre size bottle and a pump (to get the most out of it). The only downside I can see is the price. In my locale it's a brand that's only now carried in Beauty Supply Stores, so it can command a premium. But for the amount of uses you can get out of it and the fact you only need a little bit, it makes it totally worth it.
Finally! A cleanser to help your skin glow that doesn't contain chamomile (note to beauty product creators: chamomile doesn't work for everyone!) Does just what it promises - my skin was really radiant after two days of use. The consistency allows your skin to get really clean while only using a little bit. I've only found two downsides so far: it never seems to go on sale in my neck of the woods and it's apparently too heavy for use in the summer. However, I remedied that by finding a clear gel-based cleanser. Once the cooler weather returns, I will gladly go back to using this.
Took a chance and decided to try this for my summer face cleanser. It was between this and the moisturizing Yes to Cucumbers. What made me choose this was that it contained clay, which I figured would mop up the excess oil on my skin. I am so glad I tried it! It really does what it says - my skin is back to glowing and healthy, and it doesn't break me out. The formulation is a slightly thicker gel, so a little bit will go a long way. I do wish they made a larger tube, however. I did not find that the alcohol in the cleanser dried my skin out. I saw a difference right away, after my normal cleanser that I use for the other three seasons seemed to be too heavy for summer.
This seems more like an emulsion than creme, because as the other posters have mentioned, it is rather goopy and runny, like really slick Vaseline. I have tried numerous products, but this is the only one that completely gets rid of the rough spots on my feet and even the cracks on my heels (despite exfoliating them daily). I find the results easily last a couple of days. It's now part of my nighttime ritual. A little goes a long way, so it balances out the price. You can definitely smell the coconut, reminiscent of being at the beach.

Fantastic! This was the second oil-based makeup remover I tried (the first being from Kiehl's); I'm glad I saw it in Sephora and got a sample first. The right mixture of cleanser and water took some getting used to. It is *very* milky and tends to slip out of your hands and drip all over the place. But oooh is it worth it! It took off all my makeup, especially mascara! What's wonderful is that it doesn't sting your eyes or leave a film over them. I echo the other posters in that they need to make a larger size. For the price you pay, it would be nice if it was at least 8 oz.
Amazing product, blended into my skin seamlessly! Loads of colors to choose from. However, to me one drawback was the packaging. I bought a couple of tubes and by the end it was very hard to get the product out. After resorting to having to dig it out of the tube, after a while it became impossible to reach the bottom which seems like a waste to me. Perhaps if you have a long-handled implement of some type you can overcome this. Overall, would definitely recommend.
This is my HG cleanser for the winter. My skin is very oily and I wear makeup (foundation, blush, etc). I love the consistency, the scent, the way it removes my makeup and the fact that a bottle lasts a while. I've been using one I purchased two months ago and I wash my face twice daily. When I started using a microfiber face towel that I purchased from my local Dollar Store to towel off this cleanser, WOW! My skin was exfoliated and glowing.
Treatments -Joico - Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm for thick or coarse hair

Wonderful, wonderful stuff! I am overjoyed to have found this because I've been actively seeking an alternative to TIGI S Factor Serious Conditioner (good, but seriously expensive) that would not break the bank. This took my dry, poofy, crinkly 4A hair and made it super-soft. It is full of wonderful oils, which my hair likes. However, if your hair is oily, you may want to proceed with caution. If you are hesitant about picking up a full size tube, you may wish to try the trial size. That's what I've done. The size is decent, 1.7 ounces. As one of the previous posters mentioned, a little goes a long way, so it will last you a while.
Wonderful, wonderful! Normally I go the ChapStik route, but this is worth it. I paid $9 which, comparative to prices here in the Bay Area is about what you'd pay for a Neutrogena lip treatment. It works instantly and a little bit goes a long way without feeling greasy or gross.
This cleanser is wonderful! It actually works as claimed. When I first used it, I kept rinsing my face because I thought there was still some product left. But therein lies the beauty - it truly cleanses, moisturizes and removes face makeup without stripping the skin or causing a breakout. My skin feels soft like a baby's tush. Try it! You won't be able to stop touching your face or other body part that you choose to use it on. If you have extremely dry skin and/or sensitivity to fragrance or flower derivatives, give this product a shot. For instance, previously I used the cleanser and gentle scrub for Oily Skin from the Good Skin line. It cleaned like a dream, but gave me the WORST breakout of my life. The culprit? Chamomille. I'm highly allergic and a lot of cleansers use derivatives of it or its cousin, feverfew. Other pros are that Eucerin is available from quite a few drugstores as well as from their distributors online, is inexpensive (I paid $6 w/tax included for an 8 oz bottle) and has a nice consistency. Ingredients are as follows: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium Cocamphodiacetate, Glycol Distearate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, PEG 5 Lanolate, Cocamide MEA, Laureth-10, Citric Acid, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Lanolin Alcohol, Imidazolidinyl Urea.
I read about this in Allure as one of their top products and wasn't sure if it was just hype. What a great product! I love that it gives a slight sheen and moisturizes without weighing my hair down. I got my sister hooked on it and gave some to a friend. One sticking point can be the price, but I managed to get a decent-sized bottle at a great price from one of the nail salons that I use in the mall. Plus, since you only need a little bit, it'll last you a while.
NEVER will I buy this again! It was beyond awful!!! I smelled like a bowl of oranges, couldn't stop sneezing and gave those around me the WORST headache. The stuff was so strong that it would be stuck for days around my apartment, adding further to the misery.
