I got this as a gift from a friend who works for Chanel with rave reviews. However, when I used it, I was underwhelmed.
I have dry skin, so the serum was not nearly as moisturizing as I needed it to be. I also noticed that in some areas of my face I felt a burning sensation after applying. The smell, however, is just amazing. If I could bottle the scent and use as a perfume I …

I have been using this as my face moisturizer for about 6 months now and have seen my skin transform.
I moved to Arizona from a humid climate and my skin was uncomfortably dry! I bought this after a recommendation from an Arizonan friend. When I went home for Christmas, my friends back home told me that my skin looked amazing, and didn't even know I had switched my skincare routine …

My new favorite face wash!
I was looking to try a face wash with charcoal since that is the new hype in skincare. I had to make sure I found one that also contained salicylic acid for my breakout-prone skin. This face wash had both. It also has exfoliating beads, and creates a good lather. The smell is manly, but not overpowering.
My skin has never felt so soft or smooth. I also have …

Apr/14/2014

I bought this product about a month ago and will never pay to get my eyebrows waxed again! It is very easy to apply and not painful at all. I prefer this over the strip method.
The 2 complaints I have about this product:
1) The packaging is confusing. I had to search to find the directions for heating the wax, since this was my first time waxing at home. I ended up opening the package …

Hair Color - Clairol - Professional - 7th Stage Cream Highlighter

Apr/14/2014

I have been using this product for over a year since Born Blonde was discontinued and it gets me almost to my desired results. I use this with 2 activator packs and 40 cream volumizer. It's hard to tell how much it has lifted because of the blue-ish purple color, so sometimes I feel that I rinse it out too early. On a few occasions, it has left my hair a little more golden than I was hoping …Read more

Apr/14/2014

I am a natural dark brunette and color my hair to platinum blonde/white. This being said, I have to use a hydrating masque when I color my hair, and as needed. Last night I lightened my hair and decided to use the Wen masque for the first time after I shampooed the color out. (I received the Wen system as a gift about a month ago and have seen good results).
I left the masque on for about 30 …

Jul/19/2009

I was out of conditioner so I ran to my local drugstore to pick up a quick fix, or at least something to hold me off until I could make a trip to the mall. This conditioner felt very good in the shower, but once I rinsed it out and towel dried my hair, it wasn't as moisturizing as I had thought. There was a lot of buildup, so when I tried to blow dry my hair, it took FOREVER and made my hair …Read more
