Styling Products -Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Cream with Olive Oil

I love this product, and was the first Fekkai product I ever bought. I just recently got the shampoo and conditioner (I figured I wouldn't need a shampoo that "glosses", I wanted something to moisturize, detangle, ect. and shine is not my highest priority; ends up the shampoo and conditioner are absolutely perfect and I will not buy a different s/c for a long time) and this pairs so well with them. The entire line is wonderful, and the cream leaves my hair silky and soft. A little goes a long way, so don't overdo it or you'll be able to feel it (it can leave a bit of a greasy aftertouch, but it's not sticky or heavy). I like to put it on my damp hair before blowdrying, but it works well as just a leave-in conditioner or something for flyaways or dry days.
I have naturally curly (very curly) hair, but it's not coarse after a wash and condition. I love this iron, it leaves my hair silky and smooth, although I have yet to test the lasting power. The iron itself is very nice, and although it's fairly expensive (but there are more expensive ones out there), it seems very professional. However, this is not a "single pass" iron unless your hair is naturally straight or barely wavy, nor is any flat iron under $250 on the market. I haven't had it long enough to discuss the durability of it, and will be registering for the warranty after reading the horrifying reviews of how it works well but dies quickly. And with every review, be careful- believe it or not, some people just do not know how to straighten their hair properly. Some straighten chunks at a time, some just go section by section without any product, and some go too quickly down the hair. Make sure you're using a good straightening product, taking your time, and using a brush (preferrably bristle) pressed right underneath the flat iron as it glides down the section. This separates each strand (like the Instyler).
This perfume, out of all the ones I own, is definitely top on my list (right behind Daisy, I think). I love this perfume, although it is mature (but not too mature, which is unusual for Chanel). I will be picking up Eau Tendre and Eau Fraiche soon.
Such a pretty bottle, and the scent is light and sweet. However, it is a mature scent (do not confuse it with Cherie), and reminds me of Chanel Chance. I bought both at the same time and noticed how similar they were. Great to wear for any occasion and has good lasting power.
This perfume is wonderful, and I first found out about it from a friend who was wearing it. I just had to know what it was she was wearing, and I love it on me too. The packaging is pretty and the scent is sparkly and on the floral and fruity side, and mature but not too mature. Could work for anyone 16 and up.
I love this perfume, one of my favorites for summer or for cute and classy outfits. It missed a lippy simply because it's very, very strong when your body temperature warms up just a little bit, so you only need a little. If you're looking for a green, clean, cool scent, this is for you. My only problem is that I tend to get choked by it a bit.
Conditioner -Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Conditioner

This conditioner is wonderful. Definitely use it with the shampoo. It left my hair very soft, glossier (in feel, not necessarily shine), and extremely manageable. My hair now smells like a greener, lighter, cleaner version of Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I love it and would definitely recommend it.
