    L'Oreal Paris ColorSpa Moisture Actif

    Excellent semi-permanent color, but...

    I prefer this brand over Natural Instincts because it lasts longer. But, there aren't enough colors to choose from vs. Natural Instincts. It's also hard to find - I'm wondering if L'oreal has discontinued it? If so, I'll miss this product.

  • L'Oréal Paris Excellence Creme

    Pros: excellent gray coverage, long-lasting, lots of color choices, I like the pre-color treatments. Cons: VERY strong odor, long processing time, after-color conditioner isn't as good as those from other brands. It's my home color of choice because of how well it covers gray, but could use a little improvement with hair feeling softer & healthier afterward.

  • L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference
    6.0

    L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference

    Color is fading faster than I expected...

    I was hesitant to try Preference because it doesn't say 100% Gray Coverage on the box, but thought I would give it a try anyway because of it's emphasis on fade-resistance. Pros: lots of color options, odor isn't too strong, hair smelled great afterward, it didn't dry out or damage my hair, grays were sufficiently covered. Cons: even though my grays were well covered initially, a week later they were showing through (I don't shampoo every day and I use Pureology shampoo which has prevented early fade-out with the other hair color brands I use, so I know it is not the shampoo causing the fading), it would also be nice if it came with 2 tubes of the after-color conditioner for those of us with longer & dryer hair. I used almost the whole tube after I rinsed out the color. I wanted to LOVE this product, but it isn't meant for people who have a lot of gray to cover.

  • Clairol Nice 'n Easy

    Great price, excellent gray coverage, color comes out like it shows on the box, doesn't fade out as fast as some of the other brands, hair doesn't feel fried after coloring. It does smell strong though and the color selection could be a little better.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

    Takes some work to apply the mascara so that it builds your lashes without clumping. Not the best volumizing mascara I've tried.

  • Garnier HerbaShine Color Creme
    6.0

    Garnier HerbaShine Color Creme

    Good haircolor, but too drying

    I used this haircolor years ago and didn't like it because my hair felt very dry and damaged afterward. I tried it again recently hoping that the formula had improved, but it didn't. It still dried out my hair. However, the color itself turned out fine and it covered my grays well. I also liked that the smell is pleasant - my eyes didn't water as they do when I've used other brands! If Garnier could improve this formula so that it doesn't leave hair so dry, I'd give it another try.

  • Pantene Pro-V Volume Outrageous Body Hairspray Maximum Hold, Non-Aerosol

    This hairspray is a find! It's cheap, has a strong hold without being sticky or heavy and I don't need to do touch-ups during the day. I prefer it as a finishing spray vs. a styling spray because of the stronger hold factor. Saves me a lot of $ vs. buying the salon brands!

  • Redken All Soft Velvet Whip Thermal Softening Treatment

    I'm really happy with this product...I noticed a difference in my hair the first time I used it. After blow-drying, my hair was soft & shiny. I normally have to apply a little bit of Fekkai Glossing Cream after I blow-dry because my hair was always rough & brittle. But with this product, I don't have that problem. I mix it with a little bit of straightening balm and that combo works great for my hair.

  • Redken All Soft Heavy Cream

    I read a lot of great reviews about this treatment, but the product didn't do much for my hair. When I applied it, it was so thick and heavy that it was difficult to spread through my hair. I let it sit on my hair for several minutes and then rinsed. Afterward my hair didn't feel any softer or healthier than it does with my daily conditioner. It did smell good and didn't weigh down my hair, but those are the only two positives of this product for me. I expected more from a Redken product.

  • Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Vitalizing Body Gel Oil

    I normally use baby oil after showering because I'm in a hurry in the morning and don't have time to put lotion on. This gel works better than baby oil because it's thicker and the moisturizing effect lasts longer. I wish it came in a bigger size, although now it's sold in 2-packs, so that helps. It's still a little spendy so I don't use it everyday, but would if you got more of it for your money.
