Gorgeous flanker. I highly suggest this if you really want to like Flowerbomb but find it can overwhelm. This is much more wearable, especially during the day, at work and for casual affairs. Starts with a bitty dose of rose (definitely not an in-your-face, old lady, bathroom spray rose) that quickly fades away and turns into the original FB, only more subtle and slightly "fresher". …Read more

The best straightening/styling product I've ever used. I've tried to find a cheaper replacement that's equally good but I just can't. Takes so much of the work out of straightening your hair -- and it'll stays straight until your next shampoo. My second favorite straightening/styling product would be Kiehl's Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream which is almost …Read more

First of all, this shampoo is to be used on seriously dry, coarse or very damaged hair. This is NOT for you if you have even semi-healthy hair or fine, limp, thin, flat hair, or oily to normal scalp. I don't even use this any longer but I still recommend it very highly for the hair it was designed to cleanse. What I do continue to use is the Moisture Intense Oil Creme conditioner on my …Read more

This is a serious MOISTURE BOMB for extremely dried-out, seriously processed and/or coarse hair. I have used every pro brand under the sun (since I can get most lines at wholesale cost) and this is the richest, most moisture-infusing conditioner/mask I have ever used, seriously. Absolutely amazing results unlike any other before. My hair actually feels moisturized and not just coated with …Read more

The lady at the beauty supply raved about this oil saying it was the best she's ever tried so I picked up a $5 trial size for my son. I really didn't really expect it to be any different than any other salon brand oil/serum out there but thought it'd be a fun little surprise to bring home to him. He recently bleached his hair three times trying to get that white-silver look …Read more

My dermatologist recommended this to me years ago and I love it, especially when I'm using Retin-A at night. The first couple of times you try this sunscreen it may feel slightly heavy on your skin -- not greasy, but heavy. That's the wax in it which actually helps to keep it in place when you sweat and holds a bit of moisture in. With that said, this sunscreen is not oily, will not …Read more

Husband surprised me with this scent for Mother's Day because he thinks it smells "HOT"...hehe. I surprisingly think it's very pretty and great for summer as it has a light, fresh presence. I smell melon, citrus, some floral and aquatic notes. I could envision wearing this while on a beach vacation whilst wearing a white cotton sundress and sandals. I can't imagine a …Read more

The girl-on-a-budget's dupe for Hourglass Veil...you can save about $40+ by choosing this nifty primer instead! Doesn't feel as silicone heavy as Veil and sinks into skin nicely if you wait about five minutes after applying. Highly recommend!

Contains non-chemical SPF of 15: Titanium dioxide 4.3% and zinc oxide 3.3%

I actually like this better than I was expecting to. Just enough "umph" to complete my face cleansing process without over-stripping. Feels refreshing enough w/o irritating my combo, slightly sensitive, acne-prone skin. A definite budget recommendation for combo/normal skin types!

I understand that everyone's chemistry is different so I mean no offense to any fans of this. I highly suggest that you try this fragrance on before you purchase as this did not work for me at all. To me, it smelled like cough syrup on. Even so, I decided to wear it for the day to see if something would change. Awhile later my husband asked me if I put some of "that sore muscle …Read more
