Just got this at the recommendation of my new, amazing stylist. It's about $26 - very reasonable! And - I love it. I have straight, black, thick hair (no color, no perm) that requires some help after showers to give definition to the layers that are cut into it. I also have dry and somewhat damaged hair, which is not good, but because of that, I needed something that wasn't going to …Read more

I had my daughter 4 years ago and basically stopped taking care of my hair. It's been 2 years since my last haircut, and I was doing a bun every morning and leaving it up all day. Wasn't paying attention to what shampoo/conditioner was in the shower. Finally went to the salon, got about 8 inches chopped off, and the stylist gently told me not to put the hair in a bun for a while. He …Read more

It looks like LM has discontinued this product, which leaves me very sad. It's been my HG foundation for a couple of years. Since the birth of my daughter, I've had some hormone-induced redness/freckling of my cheeks. I needed something easy to use, with medium-heavy coverage, plus SPF. For a busy mom, this was perfect: just swipe, blend, and go. The shade (I used Natural) was …Read more

I'm so sad that this isn't available on the Chantecaille website (or on the Neiman Marcus site either). It's my HG lipstick - just enough color but not too densely pigmented. I don't do glosses because they wear off too fast, and this formulation seems to be matte enough to stay on, but is not drying. Subtle but perfect. You can layer it for more effect. I have to go to …Read more

i've tried the other 2 fragrances - love the green tea, hate the aloe, and am indifferent to this one. it's inoffensive, and works great. i use it in the shower - produces a great whipped texture lather, rinses clean and doesn't strip my normal skin. great price for a good solid product.

i like the green tea scent a lot! this one is basically the same thing except i do NOT enjoy the fragrance for some reason. it smells a bit astringent to me, and when i put it on my face, the scent becomes overwhelming!

as with the matching conditioner, i love the scent! mmmmmm... makes me feel pampered. but, it's pricy and basically works as well as other cheaper shampoos for normal hair. would buy again if i could afford.

the best thing about this conditioner is the scent! i LOVE it! light and floral but not at all cloying. it's pricy, and otherwise seems almost like any other conditioner for normal hair. it's fine. it doesn't weigh down my stick straight, thick asian hair, which is nice, and does a great job of detangling. i'd buy again if i could afford it!

this is a really pretty lip color. i love the packaging, the formulation (so silky!), and the mild scent. it goes on smoothly, and on my high pigment lips, looks very natural but with a subtle golden highlight. i like it very much, and will use it for daytime, but it's still not the HG product i'm searching for...

this is a great product. initially, i thought i had found my HG facial moisturizer for day - oil free and with sun protection - but after using it for a few months, as we move into summer, i'm getting concerned about the level of SPF (if any) in this product. i tend toward freckles with too much sun exposure and wasn't too sure about the SPF. what i love about this: the silky …Read more
