This iron is a dream come true. I finally pulled the trigger and bought it during this past Sephora FF event, and I burned through 3 gift cards that I'd been saving for a special occasion. And this was it.

The iron heats up in seconds and glides through my hair like a dream. I barely had to use it and my hair turned into the flowing molten silky locks of a fairy tale …

It left my hair reasonably smooth and shiny. But I'm allergic to something in it. The fragrance made me sneezy and my scalp (and back of my neck) itched whenever I used it. I don't know what fragrance FF products have that I'm allergic to, but I'm going to avoid. The only product I like of theirs is the Shea Butter hair mask.

Very nice product, makes my hair silky and shiny and smoother. I get better results if I apply to dry hair, so I do that either before or after using my Jilbere iron on it. Smells nice too, not too strong that it makes me ill.

Great product. I put it on wet hair, put on a shower cap, and let it sit for as long as possible. My hair is silky and shiny afterwards for a few days. Smells nice too, although it can be a little strong. Also, the squeeze bottle is nice, but you gotta really crank on it to get the product out when the bottle is half empty.

I liked the high PPD and SPF rating, and also that it didn't have any Avobenzone (aka Parsol) which irritates my face. However, this product does give me the balling up problem in that it doesn't apply smoothly. What I did to get around this was to first apply a light layer of moisturizer (usually Olay SPF 15) as a primer. That helps the product go on much more smoothly. It …Read more

Very lightweight moisturizer, smells terrific. My only problem was the packaging. When you're spraying yourself, the pump gets slippery. There is no way to spray your whole body easily. I had to spray it into my hands and rub it on my skin. Other than that flaw, I liked the product a lot.

I like the very high level SPF and the fact that it is photostable and has UVA filters. These are the only good aspects of this sunscreen. The bad things: extremely thick and hard to spread and leaves my face incredibly shiny. I have to matte it down with a lot of pressed powder, and that cuts down the shine a lot, although I get breakthrough shine as the day goes on. Also, it is very hard …Read more

This has terrible packaging. Within a week, the cap was cracked and kept falling off. The product has a high level SPF, which I like, but it is very waxy and left a whitish cast on my lips. Not moisturizing at all.
