When I first bought this product I was not impressed. It remained at the back of my cabinet for over a year. Then, when I ran out of something or rather, I reached for it. I realize now that it works best at revitalizing my hair during those dry-shampoo stretches where I'm trying to make it until the next wash. I either use it by itself, or mix it in my palms with something like Fekkai …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Musk

No. The Musk candle from this line is too much. Overpowering, powdery, and cloyingly obnoxious. The throw is so strong that it would only suit a space the size of a ballroom to tolerate. If you want a decent musky-meets-sensual candle, then go for the Qualitas Amber candle -- it's encapsulates all the good aspects of the Musk candle and looses the bad. With regard to the line: Qualitas …Read more

I don't mind this. Earthy, powdery, slightly sensual and comforting. Good for colder weather. Reminiscent, to me, of a musky fragrance for women dating from the 1960s. Great throw. Qualitas makes high-quality, clean burning candles that won't hurt your health or your lungs. 100% beeswax paired with real-deal fragrance oils. If you love candles, but want to avoid the synthetic stuff …Read more

I like Voluspa Candles in general, but this wasn't my cup of tea. Now, the packaging is very handsome, the is jar attractive, and the size generous. Even the scent had admirable throw. Still the actual smell of this candle is pure Pledge, lemon-scented furniture polish. I'd searched forever online to find a review before I purchased. Sadly, the few I found were neither helpful, nor …Read more

I had my hair professionally dyed a few months ago and found myself really unhappy with the results. What was once decent, shiny hair was dry, dull and lifeless. I was going out of town soon thereafter and ended up in a salon in Los Angeles having a protein mask put in. That mask made a huge difference. I then came back home and went in for a correction. Well, soon my hair started looking as bad …Read more

Keeper. I used to use the tinted Revision Intellishade sunblock, but found that I sometimes didn't want the tint (flattering as it was). This has been just perfect. Like the tinted versions, it lends a flattering and subtle something-or-rather to your skin, though it's not clear exactly what. No white cast (I'm fair), non-greasy, non-shine producing, antioxidant packed AND …Read more

One of my staple products! I've been going back and forth between this and Phyto's Phytopolleine Universal Elixir Scalp Stimulant for well over a decade. Both do a great job of clearing the scalp of build-up, alleviating any itchiness AND lending the roots a sense of more body and overall fullness. About once every three weeks, I put the product all over my scalp and rub/massage it in …Read more
