Took a few times to figure this out.. but I love it now!
The product is thick and sticky in your hands... so k now that going in. But once you get the right amount touched through the hair - its quite fabulous! I have long, curly hair - no layers. So I need some of the strands to stand out to give my hair some depth. I touch this product through the strands and it really looks great, Even after the first use when I wasn't sure what I was doing... several people made positive comments that day. Plus, I wash my hair only ever 3 or 4 days.. so Product is important to me. This lasted thorugh the next washing with only some wet-touch ups. I'm very happy to meet this item!

Lovely Scent - wish it lasted a bit longer
I don't wear a lot of perfumes because I don't like to be overwhelmed with fragrance... nor do I want to over power anyone else's perfume. So.. normally I just let others waft in the forefront. With that said - I really do like YSL's Parisienne perfume spray! It goes on nicely and it is a lovely clean scent. I used my entire trial size version over a two day period and at different parts of the day. My only wish is that it held on a little longer. I think after maybe 5 minutes the scent was completely gone. So I would douse on more... but again, the fragrance didn't last. I even asked my boyfriend and two girlfriends - they all liked the scent and packaging. Simple, pink and girly.

Cure for my boyfriend's Scratchy Cuticles!
Finally, I found something that softens his darned cuticles! What is with men's hands? I've tried several cuticle creams on him.. he's like my little lab rat... and this one finally softened those tough places around the nail bed that kept sticking me. And he is happy with the smell.. he says its not to girly but kind of refreshing. I recommend this highly!

I don't have white teeth and I waited long enough to finally dip in & try a whitening kit. So, I picked this one up after a store gave me a sample. I used this kit exactly as directed and yes, my teeth were much whiter & my gums were not wrecked from the chemicals. Yeah! However, with the kit - some of the vials were old and did not have as much 'juice' in them as the newer ones... I tried to explain that to the sales clerk but I was ignored. So, my only advice is to see if you can get the freshest kit if/when you do buy it. Hey, this isn't a cheap kit.. so good luck getting a fresh pack.

Go Smile Lemon
I am not fan of sweet toothpastes - so not sure why I even gave this a second thought. But turns out its very refreshing and not too sweet. Because I switched between using this one and another Go Smile one - the toothpaste got a bit dry towards the final days... and crusty. Really crusty around the mouth. So, my thoughts are to open it and use it all until its gone. Then try another one of theirs separately. Regarding the product working on whitening.. I'm really not sure that I noticed any difference in whiteness. My teeth are not really white naturally - so it wasn't a fantastic enough change so that I would give it the highest marks.

Love these Lip Glosses!
I have most of the colors and the lip gloss itself is not too sticky, smells fresh and seems to moisturize my lips. I almost always use the clear one over my lipsticks if I'm feeling I need more pigment. The biggest bonus is how solidly the packaging has been designed - there's some weight behind the packaging & it just feels like a $40 lip gloss.

Sorry, I tried to love you....
This is fine for moisturizing any area.. but as far as the claim that it does any kind of skin firming or toning... well, it just didn't happen for me. I tried it on my tummy & bottom and upper thighs for a solid month. Even with short workouts.. there just wasn't any skin toning going on. But.. as a body moisturizer its fine.

I was serious about using this product & making it work. I read the directions.. I put it on how & when it said to - - and I bought 3 tubes to make sure I was giving it my all. But, I just did not notice any difference in my skin.

"Not Great" mascara
I liked the packaging.. so I picked up this to try. The wand is a filmsy plastic & bends easily when you try to force it back into the tube. The brush does not want to go back in! The mascara itself is just okay. My tube doesn't seem to have a lot of mascara in it.. its kind of dry & for one eye - I have to dig in tot he tube maybe 3 times to get full coverage. I will not buy this again.

Favorite GoTo Hand Cream
I've used this hand cream for about 10 years - right after I discovered the benefits of Shea Butter. Naturally, I did my research & wound up choosing L'Occitane's hand cream because it had the largest % of shea butter. It starts off a tad greasy... but it will eventually absorb. The long-term benefits are that my hands have been well-moisturized for a decade! With L'Occitane - there isn't a powerful scent. Its just a clean scent - - no perfume.
