I accidently left my usual mousse at home before going on my honeymoon so we ran into a Wal-Mart on the way for me to pick up the few things I left. I probably should have bought my usual Herbal Essences or Garnier mousse. I will admit this stuff isn't horrible. However in comparison to what I usually use, I didn't like it. I typically like hair products that are much lighter. It just felt way too sticky for me. If I wasn't careful with it and didn't get it applied just right I'd end up with what looked like greasy patches in my hair.

Not just for bikini zone
I have found so many uses for this stuff. It is great to use on your bikini zone to take away redness and irritation. I also mix it with facial moisturizer to use on my eyebrows and upper lip to take away redness and pain when I wax them.

Only for nonsweaters!
I will admit, I LOVE everything about this product, except for one thing. It smells sensual. It feels silky and smooth going on. I like putting it on before bedtime or wearing it on days around the house. There is just one problem. It does nothing to deter my sweating. I'll admit, I sweat a lot which is why I STILL rated this product so highly.

I used to buy the Sunsilk Hydra TLC hair mask, but when I went to look for it I couldn't find it, so I assumed they quit making it. So I went looking for another inexpensive hair mask to use when my hair needs some extra TLC. I've been generally happy with most garnier products I have tried. I don't like it nearly as much as the old stuff I used, but its not horrible. Unfortunately I have regular conditioners that do a much better job of keeping my hair looking healthy.

I bought this last night, not knowing what to expect. I haven't bought CG cosmetics in years, but due to being a grad student, I've had to drastically cut back on my cosmetic spending budget. I actually really like this product. I usually don't like powder foundations. I usually find them to be too powdery, too greasy, or not enough coverage. I think the consistency and coverage is perfect. I also like how it eliminates a step for me in the mornings. It is also something great for travel. I don't have to worry about a bottle leaking, and I can throw it in my purse for during the day.

Gave it a second try---gave me a rash!
I loved this stuff, but I don't know what's up or if it was the bottle my mom bought. Her dermatologist recommended it because she has highly sensitive skin. It caused her to break out in hives. She passed it along to me...and I broke out in hives as well. The only reason why I'm not rating it a 1 is because of my past good luck with this stuff and I seriously hope that maybe we just got a bum bottle.

Not for me
I know there are pleanty of women that this stuff works great for. I used to use it for years, simply because it was cheap. However, it made my face break out horribly any time I use it. Even now, if I even use it for a day it trashes my skin for a month.

Has a learning curve
It took me a few days to figure out how to use this stuff. I've had similar products before, but always used them when I had a short choppy haircut. I found that it did a great job of fighting the moisture and humidity in the air. Typically if I straightened my hair and walked out in the rain, my hairstyle would be ruined for the rest of the day. However, this stuff seemed to protect and keep my hair looking great. I hated it at first. I thought it made my hair look greasy, but once I figured out the perfect amount and how to put it on I loved it.

Did nothing for my curls, but great for when I blow dry my hair
I think this product just confirmed my suspicion that there is no product out there that can make my natural hair look pretty. I tried using this stuff as directed one day. I wound up breaking out my straightener and straightening my hair because my hair looked like crap. It was still ultra frizzy. However, I used this stuff in place of my usual mousse and just blow dried my hair and I was impressed. I love the texture. It almost reminds me of the whipped cream out of the cans. It seems really thick, but once you work it into your hair it is nice. It seems to protect my hair pretty well. What I love most about this is how soft and light it is.

I used to swear by Clinque's soap. I used it for years. However, I don't have the money that I used to now that I'm married and earning my Master's degree. I've found that this doesn't dry my skin out. I also break out a lot less than I used to. I've found that all I need to do with my skin is wash with this and put on a moisturizer. Its really improved the look of my skin. I probably won't go back to Clinique even after I graduate and get a job.
