Pre-Poo

For my damaged hair, VCO has been a god send. I use it as a pre-shampoo. Before a shower, I rub between my hands and apply from the middle of my hair to the ends. I may take a comb and run it through. I leave it on 5-10 minutes, then shampoo and condition as usual, yada, yada, yada.

The only product that makes my hair look better is Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax …

Fragrances - Annick Goutal - Le Mimosa

5.0

Jul/22/2013

This is not a mimosa scent. Frankly I don't care because it is exactly what I wanted, which was a transparent peachy fragrance for warm weather wear. I also longed for the signature Goutal accord which is prominent in many of the femmes, plus I wanted something light and inoffensive. After reading reviews here and elsewhere, I bought it unsniffed. Le Mimosa hits all those bells perfectly …Read more

Styling Products - John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Shine Shock Leave-on Perfecting Glosser [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/07/2013

Oh, I was really hoping that this would work for me. It feels nice on the hands, but really doesn't do much for my hair. I have several Frieda products but this is not one of the ones that I will keep.

Also worthy to note - This product is loaded with silicones. It feels like it, it looks like it, and it says so on the ingredients list. Definitely one to avoid if you're …

Conditioner - Infusium 23 - Repair & Renew Conditioner

May/27/2013

On it's own, Infusium 23 Repair & Renew Conditioner is best used as a detangler for hard water conditions, as others have mentioned. Personally, I don't think it does a lot as a conditioner by itself, but it is a wonderful detangler - I comb it through in the shower and leave it in for about 2 minutes before throughly rinsing.

As a routine, Infusium 23 Repair & Renew …

Hair Treatments - Garnier - Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment

May/25/2013

I have lots & lots of fine shoulder-length hair. I have natural volume, natural waves, and I don't dye or highlight my hair, so that's natural also. It's a head of hair that many women would pine for. Unfortunately, my hair frizzes, not a little but a lot, and it needs styling to keep it in shape. I've always been a minimalist when it comes to my hair - little product …Read more

Shampoo - BioSilk - Biosilk hydrating shampo

Terrible, terrible shampoo. It is drying and does not smooth or hydrate the hair.

I bought this on a whim, having success with the Biosilk serum. Big mistake - should have checked MUA reviews first. Now I'm stuck with getting my hair back into the shape it was before I started using this shampoo.

Save yourself some time, money and grief - Pass on it if you see it on …

Polishes - China Glaze - Sex on the Beach

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2013

Sex on the Beach is a frosty, shimmery peach-pink that has both lavender and brownish undertones. It has both gold and silver flecks, which are tiny in comparison to most polishes.

This color gets raves and deservedly so - it goes with SO many skin tones. It's a mid-tone color that's a true neutral and it's neither too warm nor too cool. It also has some bling but is …

2 more thumbs up for Sally Hansen 3k or More!

I have medium Caucasian skin with yellow-ish undertones. Finding the right "nude" color in lipstick or in nail color is extremely difficult. However, "3k or More!" is a winner for me.

The color is very difficult to capture on screen, so this is one you really must try in-person. I did today and purchased it …

Fragrances - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Decadence

Sep/25/2012

Decadence may have been a limited edition release. I have a 5ml bottle purchased on etsy.

I get oranges & cinnamon straight away, but neither are strong or overwhelming. It seems to be a vanilla & cream scent in an almond carrier oil. Feminine but not sweet or sugary. It's a tad soapy, a tad powdery - it has a "clean" feel to it that doesn't seem to be …

Long lasting !!!

I'm not expecting this polish to last 10 days, but I think maybe it just could! I am on DAY 6, and I am only starting to see wear at the edges. I'm wearing a soft color, so a darker color might show the wear just a bit more, but this is a nice surprise, for sure! I like the brush which is wide enough to cover in three strokes yet small enough to not make a …
