I don't really care for the update at all, the fonts are annoying and I don't like the way it scrolls up after every page. I don't understand what was wrong with the old way in the 1st place.

I could never figure out how to use the message boards, so I can't speak to them being different.

New is not always better.

I received this as a gift and all I can say is I'm glad I didn't pay for it!

The tube lacks a stopper so tons of product comes out on the brush. The brush itself is oddly bent in a way that I have trouble coordinating. The product itself is thick and gloopy. It gives me spider lashes. The only way I can save this is to glop some on and then use some Maybelline Define A …

I have 2c/3a hair that is pretty fine and thin. In the winter, my hair is a stringy straggly mess and won't really curl well and has no body. Regular blow driers make my hair look like a poofy downy chick.

I got this thing over the weekend and thanks to a blizzard and near zero temps, I had the time to play with it.

This thing is the best thing to ever happen to me …

I used the Curl Defining Coconut version of this. I loved the smell of it and it made my hair look great. However, it made my hair fall out in handfuls every time I used it.

I really wish it worked for me because I'm really hooked on the scent!

I love colored mascaras. I snatched this up at Walgreens eagerly!


I've worn it twice so far and have been pleased. The color shows just fine, I do have light lashes to begin with though. It's not the best application, but it's good enough. Comes off easily with cold cream at the end of the day. Does not flake, smear or run for me.

I used this off and on for years with no issues. A couple of weeks ago, I spent a week in the country. Every day, after my shower, I applied this oil liberally to my arms and legs because it's said to have insect repellent properties and flies love to bite me.

It worked in that respect. However, by the end of my week long vacation I had a red dot, itchy rash all over my shins …

I got this for my kids, they love anything Pantene. I gave it a try the last two mornings and holy crap, this is magical!

I was going to cut my hair because I couldn't get it to behave anymore. It was just lank and frizzy. This stuff has made my hair sleek, shiny and bouncy!

I'm going to stock up!

Who woke up 45 minutes late this morning and had 15 minutes to make lunch and get out the door for work?

That would be me.

This stuff saved my ass this morning. I blasted the crap out of my head and left it until I got to the office. By then, it soaked up all the greasies and made my head smell great! It masks that I didn't have time to shower! LOL

Do you like to hose down your face 1st thing in the morning? If you said yes, then this is the product for you!

It's got an unpredictable and blasty spray that shoots a stream of sticky liquid at your face. It ruined my hair this morning. WTF?

I'm stopping at Walgreens on my way home for something else, this stuff SUCKS!
