Styling Products - L'anza - Anti Aging Neem Plant Silk Serum

I got this on a vlogger's recommendation. I have used it twice so far and it's been fantastic. My hair has looked awesome both times. I put a small amount in after washing, then I wrap it in a loose bun, go to bed and dry in the morning (that part is my normal routine.) No frizz, but not flat, either. Highly recommend.

Ugh! I put a little of this on my damp hair, mainly my ends, and it did the opposite of dismissing frizz. It made my hair much frizzier and very dry feeling. This *might* work for someone with extremely limp hair looking for texture, but it sucks any moisture or shine from your hair. Truly awful. I usually was my hair every three or four days but I will have to wash it again tonight to get this …Read more

This is a review for the dream coat for curly hair. Granted, I have fine wavy hair, but I generally wear it curly, so I was excited to try this for when I let it air dry. I tried it 3x just to be sure and here is what I have to say - it really sucks. It dried my hair out, did the opposite of bring out curl. It gave me heavy, dry, dull looking hair. Really bad. It's too much of a rigamarole …Read more

Ugh. I got this at a sample sale, so thankfully the price was right, but not right enough as I'm either going to give it away or throw it away, as I'm not sure who would want it with that gross brush on it. I like a little glow as much as the next girl. But I put this one and I was like holographic. I tried to tone it down with powder but nothing was stopping that over the top …Read more

My friend gave me a nearly full bottle of this because it made her break out. I was psyched, I love high end beauty product hand me downs and I use Vitamin C products all the time so I didn't think it would be an issue. well, I used it for a couple of days and my skin didn't look any brighter or glowy like some reviews say, but whatever, still using high end free beauty product so woot! …Read more

I returned this to Rite-Aid the next day because the smell was super strong, super cheap and lingered for so long that I finally had to tie my hair back because I couldn't deal with myself anymore. If you look at some of my recent reviews, you will notice that I have been complaining about scents a bit more lately. I don't know what it is, maybe perimenopause, or maybe cosmetics …Read more

...did the woman at Sephora give me the wrong sample or does this smell like a fresh porta-pot? I'd better wake up with skin that looks like a baby's a$$, because this stuff smells noxious. Holy cow how does that go unmentioned in the positive reviews? And how did this scent get past initial focus groups??

I bought this hastily at a sample sale after looking online at all the great reviews. I paid $89 for it, which I believe is less than half price, so I guess I should be happy about that, though $89 seems pretty pricey in the frenzy of a sample sale. Anyway, I was expecting hair nirvana which sadly was not the case. I mean, it's a good enough hair dryer. Seems effective enough, though my …Read more

What a horrible product. I put it in my freshly washed hair last night, put it in a ponytail and went to bed, like I always do. When I went to do my hair this morning, there is not only no curl, it's...well...FUZZY. It feels dirty and looks damaged and it's not (well, it's marginally damaged, but it looks fried.) Now I have to wash it again tonight and I really don't like …Read more

Okay, I've only used this once, but I wanted to leave a review because if anyone is like me, they look up Makeupalley reviews before making a product purchase. I saw so many good ones on this and it was on sale at the Rite-Aid, so I thought, let's give it a try. I have layered shoulder length wavy hair -- fine, but a lot of it. I put it on, twisted into a bun on my head and went to …Read more
