This makes a drastic difference in the time I have to spend combing my hair in the morning. I have really fine, thick, wavy (2a) hair, which is notorious for working itself into knots while I sleep. For years, I've been using a wide tooth wet comb, and I thought that was the best solution. However, this is infinitely better.

This has a texture and taste similar to honey. At first, I wasn't sure whether this was a treatment or a lip balm. But you leave it on indefinitely. It has been one of my most used products this past winter, and I'd really like to try the rest of the line.

So I picked this up on a whim, and it is lovely. It isn't anti-bac like most of the hand soaps in the line. Instead it uses tea tree oil and has little scrubby pumice granules. However, the best aspect by far is the Toasted Vanilla Chai scent.

I have a lot of nail polish. Ridiculous amounts. This is in my top five. When it dries up, I will probably cry a bit.

I bought this when it was half off because I wanted to see how it stacked up to some of the cheaper formulations that I normally use. Though it seems to be slightly more moisturizing, it really isn''t any better or worse than your run-of-the-mill vitamin c serum. However, I like keeping it around for a little treat because the lavender oil it contains smells amazing. If I have had an …Read more

I don't know if this is actually doing what it claims it is doing. Nor do I care. All I know is that using this once a week for the past few months has improved my hair a million times over. I leave it on for about three hours every weekend and rise it out and condition as normal. My hair isn't dyed at all, but recently its texture dramatically changed out of the blue and this has the …Read more

I bought the vanilla blackberry at a deep discount, and I love it. Even though it is only a deodorant (rather than an antiperspirant) it keeps me smelling nice enough. Although it is hard not to balk at the idea of paying the full price for this, the container is pretty large and I can see it lasting twice as long as a typical stick.

This is better than any other natural deodorant I have tried (Tom's of Maine, crystal, etc.). But unfortunately that does not necessarily mean it effectively keeps all odors at bay. If you actually break a sweat while wearing it, it almost seems to exacerbate the problem. In my experience, baking soda and b.o. do not play well together. It's fine for the office, but the gym is another …Read more

I've always enjoyed the regular version, so I figured I'd give this a whirl. It doesn't last long and I wish it had a more powdery or vanilla-y drydown. But it is a very pleasant, no nonsense rose fragrance.

This is ultra moisturizing, unscented, and uber glossy. It's not the least bit sticky and has a nice slip to it. It kind of reminds me of a lighter 8 Hour Cream sans the rose smell. It comes in a thinner tube, which I prefer to regular bullet lipsticks. I don't know if lanolin is great for long term use, but I really like this stuff.
