I'm kind of torn on Thriven. I do feel like it has made my hair less porous, which is something I can't say for most conditioners. However, you really have to figure out how to make it work for you. I personally can't just rinse it out with water as KC directs because it makes my roots look dirty and matted. I therefore put it on when my hair is dirty, sleep in it, and shampoo …Read more

I usually stay away from moisturizing shampoos because they leave your hair with a really undesirable coating that ends up making your hair get oily faster. This is not the case with this shampoo.

I have the sulfate-free version (according to their site they still make the one with sulfates as well) and love it. It works great with all my other products and has very mild ingredients …

I use this product in the winter when my hair needs a little extra insulation due to the temperature changes and the drying heat. It's very lightweight and doesn't weigh down my fine hair at all. It just provides slip and keeps it from feeling too dry and frizzy. I love it! One pump works for my hair which is a little below my shoulders.

I love this mask. I have some acne and redness on my face occasionally and this makes my skintone so even I don't even have to put on concealer or foundation (or tinted moisturizer). I like the blueberry smell and $5 is not much to pay for 5-6 facials.

This is the prefect everyday lipstick. I have a fairly light skin tone and most lipstick looks too stark on me for everyday use, but this is my go-to if I want a splash of color but still want to look natural. It's great!

I was really skeptical about purchasing Gleam since I think a lot of Killer Strands can be hype, but I will say I was not disappointed in this product. I use 1-2 drops of this after I shampoo my hair on the ends and it makes it much softer as is light enough for my fine hair.

I would definitely repurchase it.

I bought this around December and unlike a lot of the MUA reviewers am in love with the smell. It smells like roasted coffee, chocolate and smoke, which is something I like.

I find it makes my hair softer, more so than coconut oil, but am not sure I can justify the price enough to repurchase it. I still have a lot left, so it lasts forever if you only use it once a week or so. I …

I use this as my conditioner since I've quit using normal conditioner in the shower. It makes my hair nice and soft so I can comb through it without a problem. It's my favorite lightweight conditioner I've tried and smells pretty awesome.
