I hated this stuff - used half the tube just to be sure I wasn't jumping the gun but it never got better. Smell was atrocious, exactly like Goo Be Gone - fake orange. The cream was super sticky and runny, and did nothing for my hands. Tossed the second half of the tube, and I rarely throw anything out. Ick!

I wanted to like this, but I ended up pitching it. I don't have sensitive skin, in fact I can do almost anything to it. However this made my undereye area red and irritated, making my moisturizer and sunscreen sting. It also didn't take off all of my eye makeup. I use a lot of eyeliner (MAC Blacktrack) and non waterproof mascara, so I don't expect miracles, but for as harsh as this …Read more

Tried this for the niacinamide, and i really like it. I was afraid that the dimethicone would break out my normal skin, but I haven't found that after a month of use. I use it at night before my retinol and like it very much. It's not overpriced and I can use it in place of retinol and/or moisturizer if I'm feeling lazy.

Tried this as a warm weather, cone free alternative to my HG Terax Crema, and it works very well for thiat. I have long, color treated hair and need a moisturizing conditioner that leaves behind some slip, but am avoiding cones. This is not as heavy or moisturizing as Crema, but I use it on days that I am air drying and it works very well. Love the scent and compared to Crema the price is great.

LOVE this sulfate free shampoo. It's the third I've tried (after Chocolate Soy Milk & L'anza Healing Moisture.) This is the only shampoo I've ever used that actually leaves my color treated, long hair soft and not in dire need of a conditioner. It lathers very well for a sulfate free shampoo and smells great. Feels like it gets my hair clean, but not stripped. Will …Read more

I tried this after seeing all of the raves on the MU board. I usually use CG Clean and actually have really like how it looks on my skin. I was a bit wary of this after reading all of the reviews about how sparkly it is. It hasn't appeared that way at all on me. I've been looking hard for the shimmer or sparkles, even checking my face in bright and dim sunlight while driving. Nothing …Read more

I use this for extra moisture and protection for my fine, damaged, color treated medium length hair. Usually follows L'anza Healing Shampoo and Terax Crema conditioner. This is a little heavy for how I use it, but since it is a leave in conditioner I understand why. I just use a bit less of it and concentrate only on the ends to compensate. Have been using for a few weeks and so far I like …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner - Blacktrack

This so far is my HG eyeliner. I prefer a heavy dark liner on a daily basis (probably was instilled in me at birth by my old school Texas mother) and this liner lasts the longest and stays the most defined that I've found. Only problem I've found is that it sometimes sticks to my contact lenses when I get some in my eye and if I don't rinse them immediately, will leave behind a …Read more

This stuff definitely works to add a bit of lift to my hair when needed. I use it mostly to add volume at the crown when I want the look of backcombing without having the problem of combing out the tangles it causes in my hair. The only thing I dislike is that it is difficult to brush my hair at all after using without feeling like the hair is sticky and dry. I don't use it often but it is …Read more

Wow. After reading the raves for this on the hair board, I had to try it out on my dry, color treated mid length hair. My hair LOVES this stuff. I wasn't sure if it would be as effective as a regular deep conditioner since this was my first time using a pre shampoo treatment. I left this on for 25 minutes and blasted it with the blowdryer a few times for some heat. It left my hair …Read more
