Styling Products - AVEDA - Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2017

My hair is fine and wavy, 2C texture, and is prone to frizz in hot/ humid weather. I purchased a small tube of this after looking through most of the Smooth Infusion styling products line. This one looked thinner and more fluid than some of the other ones, which seemed like they would be too thick/ heavy for my fine hair. I've tried using this on wet, damp and dry hair, in varying amounts …Read more

Conditioner - AVEDA - Dry Remedy

May/20/2017

Aveda conditioners are pricey, and a hit or miss for me. This one feels fluid/ lotion-y, and in the shower it feels like it's not really penetrating or sinking in. You have to rinse and rinse to get it all out despite the fluid texture. My fine 2C hair is left feeling a little weighed down and looking a bit dull, and there's still some surface frizz. I also can't get it anywhere …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Intensive Stretch Marks Cream

Aug/21/2016

I've been using this product as a neck cream for the past 6 months. It's not marketed for this area specifically, but based on the ingredients, I thought it would help. It took a few months, but the area on my neck is looking firmer and more resilient. I use it on my chest and the backs of my hands also. I've been okay with using it on a few spot areas on my face, but it does …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Paula's Choice - RESIST Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment

Aug/18/2016

I've been using several Paula's Choice products for about 8 years now (the 8% AHA and the 2% BHA gels), but a few years ago I decided to experiment with a few other products. I'm in my mid 40s and I felt like I needed something extra for my neck area. I use this product on my neck, chest and on a few spot areas on my face a few times a week (about every other day, alternating with …Read more

Deodorants - Dove - Advanced Care

4.0

Jun/19/2015

I have this one in both original clean, which has a soapy light clean scent, and beauty finish, which has a light perfumey scent. Beauty finish is getting rave reviews for the scent, but I find that one to be just okay, I prefer original clean. Beauty finish is too "fresh/floral" for me and I don't like the scent it gives off when my body heats up. This deodorant has a smooth …Read more

Deodorants - Secret - Scent Expression Coconut Splash Solid Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2015

Silky smooth deodorant solid. Goes on nicely without pulling or tugging on your skin. It does leave some white marks on clothes, and the odor and wetness protection is adequate. You might need to reapply on a hot day.

This new summer scent, coconut splash, is actually very nice. It's a slightly perfumey coconut scent. If you like cocoa butter kiss, chances are you might like this …

Other - Bath & Body Works - whole store

Mar/13/2015

I give this store a "2" for some of the hand soaps and wallflowers, if you can find scents that aren't too strong. However, the scents over the years have gotten very strong, harsh and "layered", so what you first sniff in the bottles changes. Lots of floral mid notes and musk/ vanilla/ sandalwood basenotes. I liked the store better when the fragrances were simpler and …Read more

Hair - Vidal Sassoon - Classic Clean Cherry Almond Shampoo & Conditioner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2015

So I was excited to see Vidal Sassoon brought back the retro cherry almond scented shampoo & conditioner. I remember these from the 80s, when it was a 3-step system (shampoo, conditioner & rinse) that came in dark brown bottles.

The formulas are different. It's now a shampoo & conditioner. The shampoo used to be clear, the formula changed & now they have added …

Hair - Yves Rocher - Éclat Radiance Raspberry Rinsing Vinegar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2015

First off, I'd like to say that I strongly dislike the smell of vinegar, and don't agree with those who say if you do a vinegar rinse on your hair, you can't smell it after your hair dries. I can still smell it, even if I only use a tiny amount that's heavily diluted in water, or with different flavors of vinegar (my husband confirms this is so, he can smell it too). However …Read more

Shampoo - LUSH - Daddy- O Shampoo

Dec/20/2014

My hair is naturally medium/dark brown and I use Body Art Quality henna on it to tint the grays (I'm about 5%-10% gray). Body Art Quality Henna is potent stuff, darkening your hair with red tones, and the color you get depends on what color your hair is to start with. My hair, since it's brown, tends to go auburn, which does not look good on me, so I mix the henna with cassia for a more …Read more
