To save money, I picked this up for .89 cents instead of my normal Pantene conditioner. Wow, this was surprisingly good as others have stated in their reviews. The scent is great, not too sweet, and it defrizzes my curls and adds a little volume. Good at detangling, though I slightly still prefer Pantene Restoratives for that, but the price cannot be beat. Recommended for girls with curly hair.

Exquisite, true to life fig scent. Initially, you get dirt and rain, which is a wonderful surprise. After a few minutes it morphs into a sweet fig with true green and milk notes, smelling like a fig tree bursting with ripe fruit. After an hour, it bends more towards green and soapy with the sweet fig softer. Note: The bottle shapes are the same, but the labels have changed, much to my …Read more

I was skeptical that this would do anything, but after reading all the French raves, I bought a small Caudalie travel set that included the $18 smaller bottle. Wow, I am shocked at how quick this works and what it does. Upon application, I was not fond of the smell, but it was not awful or anything. After five to ten minutes of spritzing, I noticed that my skin felt calmer. It had been a little …Read more

This Essie shade is best for those with warm, gold tones to their skin. It is one of the few light color polishes that does not streak. It creates a warm pink, glowing tone that goes from transparent warm blush pink (one coat) to jelly (two coats) to opaque (three). Almost peach but not quite. It creates an amazing glow of pink without any shimmer. Very feminine and soft looking.

I had the opposite experience than many reviews with the consistency of this gel eye liner, It was very soft, like a pudding. I had to carefully dab my brush in it. it applied well, similar to a medium brown color with light shimmer, great for green or hazel eyes. I had to not touch my eye and wait to apply mascara for ten minutes in order for it to dry and not be smudged. I was hoping for a …Read more

I have extremely thick, long wavy hair and need a shine product that covers without being greasy and aids in flat ironing and defrizzing. This is great because it covers well, creates great shine but has no heavy grease. The scent is a fresh, sunny rose-geranium scent, which is refreshing compared to the typical hair scents you find.

I have this is golden apricot. The color has more pinkish warm tone in it than you may expect. Not quite as golden as i expected, but still a nice warm orange-pink shade. It is very pigmented which is nice, but tends to break or flake when used, which is frustrating. I like the natural ingredients instead of chemicals, so it may be worth it. One last negative is the frosted cover. It looks cheap …Read more

OMG, I am off most Essie and OPI polishes (the only exception- Essie Chubby Cheeks) and hooked on these. The coverage, brush, application and color are the best I have ever tried. No streaks, spreads very evenly upon application unlike other salon brands.The color is very neon and bright, which I love for my toes. You can test them now at most Sephora stores. The cost is $14 a bottle, but worth …Read more

I like how this moisturizes my face, but it stings for about a minute or two. No redness, just stinging. It got rid of my dries skin patches in two applications and leaves a matte finish, which I like. The smell is almost marine like.
UPDATE- my dry skin ended up coming back even with application, so I cannot recommend this one.
