Works as well as all the other lighteners...
Which means it doesn't. Overall, I would give this product high ratings because it didn't damage my hair. After all, it didn't turn it orange like Sun-In. It's hard for me to determine if it worked, though, because the product claims to be a gradual lightener that produces natural- looking highlighs. If my hair is blonder after using this product then it certainly is subtle I didn't notice a change. However, I'm not sorry I tried it because it wasn't expensive, it was easy to use, and it didn't cause me any problems.

Recommended by my facialist
I started using this years ago &, at first, wasn't convinced. My skin is not too dry so I usually don't need a gentle cleanser. However, it is always recommended in magazines & since I've never had 1 product I was a die hard fan of it, I just continued using it. Then I had my first child and started breaking out badly. I went to get a facial and the woman who did it recommended this as part of my nightly routine. I was worried it wasn't strong enough, but she said what I needed was something gentle. I have continued using it religiously for the past 2 years and I have been very happy with it. Plus, you can't beat the price.

This was interesting. I haven't ever used a texturizer before so I wasn't sure what to expect from it. As a result of never having used a texturizer, the lack of instructions was disappointing to me. I wish it was more clear whether to use on damp or dry hair, how much to use, etc... Because the instructions said it "revives curls" I used it in the same way I have used products that made similar claims. By the way, it wasn't more effective than any other product I've used that made similar claims. It was different in that it had a really unusual texture. It was really sticky! I wasn't prepared for that. It did, at first, bring my curls back to life after the end of the day. However, I noticed by the time I got to dinner they had fallen flat once gain. So, overall, I wasn't impressed.

I was excited to try this product. I have naturally curly hair, which I am always wearing straight because I have yet to find a product that works for my hair. It is curlier in back than in the front & so it always looks somewhat stright in the front and curly in the back. This product was no different for me than any other. It was true to it's claim. It didn't leave my hair feeling stiff & crunchy when I let it air dry, but I didn't like the results and wound up wearing my hair up in a ponytail. Plus, I found it kind of annoying that the instructions didn't give any kind of indication of how much product you should use. It came out fast, like a mousse, so I used the amount that I would use with a mousse. I hope that was right!

OK, if you are young
I was somewhat surprised by the scent as I think of YSL as a more mature, sophisticated brand. This perfume is sweet & was a turn-off at first. It did grow on me as the day wore on. I think it is better if you are younger or have a very light touch with perfume.

This product was recommended to me by my faciliast after I had my first child and was experiencing breakouts. I have since stopped using the other products she recommended, but continue to use this one. It is expensive, but well worth the price. I use it once in the morning and a little bit goes a long way. It has cleared up not only the adult acne I was experiencing, but the redness that I have always had in my complexion. My Mother told me my skin has never looked better and I'm nearly 30!

Nice colors, wear long
I bought a lipstick after having my make-up done for an event. I have to say I haven't used it very much since then. The color is pretty, but not something I would wear often. Also, the lipliner I was wearing seems to have gotten on it & changed the color somewhat. I like the texture, though, & the amount of color that comes off & wouldn't hesitate to buy another lipstick from this line again.

Great, Fun Colors
I love this eyeshadow, although, I don't have near enough occasions to wear it. It has a soft, silky texture that glides onto the eye & deposits just enough color. Beware though: the colors are intense. If you do not want to grab attention I would say either a) avoid this shadow altogether or b) dry adding another color to dilute the color.

Not as good
I think I have tried every Frizz-Ease product out there & have generally been satisfied with the results. I would say this one, though, is not as good as the rest...Don't waste your time trying it. I can't really say with any finality if this product actually "protects" your hair or not. For that matter, does any if you are really using a lot of heat styling? However, it seemed like I needed a lot to feel like I coated my hair (it is long) & therefore, didn't last as long as other Frizz-Ease products. All in all, I was disappointed & won't buy it again.
