Awesome Drug Store Repairing Shampoo
After getting great results with the total repair hair mask, I went and bought the shampoo and daily conditioner. I am just as pleased with the shampoo as I am the mask. I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. This winter has been brutal on my hair and its been dry, brittle and dull looking. After repairing my hair with the mask, I wanted something for daily use to keep the good results going. This shampoo cleans without stripping, makes my fine hair full but with great shine and manageability. Some shampoos actually work backward and un-do the great repairing of their conditioning counterparts but not so with this product. I will continue to purchase and highly recommend.

Best Drug Store Mask in a Long Time!
I haven't had great luck with drug store hair masks but thought I'd take a chance on this one. I am very pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised! I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. With the winter being so brutal here in the Northeast, my hair has been very dry, very brittle and generally dull looking. This mask fixed all of that in one shot. I can't believe how healthy, full and moisturized my hair looks now. It sealed my splitends, added much needed hydration, brought back the shine and all of this without being heavy and weighing my hair down. I am using this 2x a week currently and continue to get excellent results. I went and bought the daily shampoo and conditioner as well. I would recommend this mask and will continue to purchase it.

Love, Love, Love this Product!!
I can't even begin to say how much I love this product. I have had no luck with any dry shampoos but this dry conditioner is excellent. It sprays out as a fine mist and makes it easy to ensure you don't over apply it, as long as you don't spray to close to your hair. My hair is very fine in texture but I have a lot of it. Its also very long and very curly. This product tames the frizz, smells awesome and doesn't weigh my hair down at all. It also doesn't seem to cause much build up as my hair washes out very well. My one issue is that the bottle is very small. Now, you only need to spray a little bit, and it is extremely inexpensive, but I'd love to have a bigger bottle available.

Nude Shade Is Great, Packaging Is Awful
I have this in the nude shade and I am very impressed with the shade and how it applies. I am uber pale and this shade seems to work almost like a tinted moisturizer in that it evens out my skin tone and seems to make any lines and imperfections less noticeable. It works wonderful under the PF mineral powder foundation and definitely keeps my makeup on longer and keeps oiliness at bay. It also doesn't cause me any breakouts or irritate my skin. My main issue, and why I didn't rate it higher, is that the brush applicator is just awful. You have to keep turning the product to get it to come out of the brush applicator and not only doesn't it actually come out quickly, after you put the product cap back on, it continues to creep out of the applicator and ends up clumping into the cap. If the applicator had a lock, that would be an inprovement but they should just ditch the brush and make it a squeeze tube.

Close to What a BB Cream Should Be
okay, I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. Most of the US BB creams are basically tinted moisturizers with maybe one or 2 skin care ingredients thrown in (and not in effective concentrations). This product is a skin care treatment cream with some coverage and color added, which is a nice change of pace. This product seems to be more close to what a true BB cream should be than any of the other US BB creams I've tried. It contains cocoa butter, soy, niacinamide, vitamin C and licorice extract. It moisturizes, reduces redness, plumps fine lines, evens the skin tone and reduces dark spots all while giving a sheer coverage to the skin to even out the tone and cover slight imperfections- you can layer it for more coverage in areas that need it. The color comes from mineral pigments and it also has an SPF 15. Now, all of that being said, my main issue and why I didn't give it a higher rating was that blending the product is challenging. It dries pretty quickly. I have very fair, sensitive, combination skin and I was very pleased with the overall effect of this product. I like a more sheer coverage so this works for me. It also hasn't irritated my skin either. The lightest shade is VERY light, although it matched me perfectly, and the next shade is very dark so some may have issues with skin color matching. Those with dry skins may find that they need additional moisture. For those who are very oily and had issues with BB creams over the summer, this maybe great for you for winter as it doesn't make me oilier in my T-zone.

My New Favorite Cleanser
This is another 10 star product for me. I am 44 yrs old with sensitive, combination skin- not only the balance of oiliness and dryness but also wrinkles and acne. I need a cleanser that will truly deep clean my skin but not over strip it or cause me irritation. This cleanser fits the bill perfectly! The clay draws out trapped dirt and the creamy consistency (not foaming but a creamy lather) keeps my skin from being tight and dry. It also works great with my face brush and doesn't splatter all over the bathroom. I can see myself being able to use this all year round too, which is a nice bonus

Like a "Night Cream" for Your Hair
I have liked this from my first use and it just keeps getting better and better with each additional use. I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. Being that its long, although I don't heat style, I am prone to split ends and some breakage. This product has been a Godsend! Every night I apply it to dry hair, twist it into a "scrunchy" and sleep with it in. I wake up to volumized hair, without frizz and sealed ends. My hair is so soft and silky and never weighed down. The product does soak in quickly, with no residue on the pillow, and just works well. I think of it as part of my night time beauty routine- like a "night cream" for your hair. I also apply it to wet hair, after I wash it, as a leave in. For me, I like the scent too. This is definitely a 10 star product for me and I hope they never discontinue!

Good Lotion But.........
I thought this did a good job of moisturizing but it left a funky feeling on my skin, almost like a "film" for lack of a better phrase. It also had a strange smell...another reviewer said "medicinal" and I agree.

What's Not To Love?!
I got a sample to try from Total Beauty and I have to admit to having forgotten how much I love Vaseline and how versatile it is. I've been putting it on my feet at night and pulling socks over it and my feet are now so soft! I also put it around my nose and eyes at night because of the endless nose blowing from my allergies. It also makes my lips really soft. There are just so many uses for this stuff....as another reviewer said, every home should have this!

Wow...No Frizz, Soft & Silky Hair!
First, this stuff smells amazing...just gotta throw that out there! LOL Its a non greasy serum containing argan & coconut oils and its smoothes the hair, reduces frizz, hydrates and all without weighing hair down. It can be applied to wet or dry hair and is perfect for either air drying or heat styling. It makes my very long, very curly but fine hair extra soft & silky and NO FRIZZ and doesn't weigh down the curls or pull them out. This product is a keeper!
