Have never tried Dove hair products and bought both the s & c. Just after shampooing, I usually notice that my hair is tangled and oddly "dry" feeling but I didn't notice it with this shampoo. It's very rich and you don't need a lot for a nice, thick lather. Rinses clean and leaves hair surprisingly untangled. Smells great, too! As for actual breakage control or repair, my thin, weak hair really does feel softer and stronger. Would definitely buy again.

Not SUPER AWESOME, but really nice. I just got this in Berry Smoothie (lush, medium-bright pink). The texture is somewhat rich, not as smooth or "buttery" as I expected. You do have to build up the color with at least two coats. And the color I got is glittery, which I would not have bought had it been more obvious in the packaging. Wrong color for my skin tone - and too much glitter for my big 'ol lips - so I took it off immediately. The taste and scent are of a really faint vanilla sugar, almost unnoticeable. I'll probably try this again in another color. Great product, but I'm not sold on the hype. Clinique's Buttershine Lipstick is much nicer, but for a drugstore try, this works. Update: Just bought another one in Fig Jam and I'm still on the fence. I want to rave about this but just can't. I suppose it's just choosing the wrong one for me or the final color being a bit different than the packaging suggests? My final take: the formula is really smooth to apply, the colors need lots of building to get the desired shade and once you do, it's doesn't last. (Except for the glitter!) I guess it's good, but I've gotta bring this one down to a 7 rating. Still really nice, but not super-awesome.

Fantastically Fresh, Clean Hair For A Buck!
I love this stuff and will buy the S&C every now and then. It's only one dollar! It lathers richly and gets my long, normal hair squeeeeaky clean. I doubt I could run a comb through it if I didn't use the conditioner right along with it, though. A solid, practical choice for those with "normal" hair that has no issues. And if you're a fragrance girl like me, you'll love the scent. It's warm, clean and inviting. I love to use this and twist my damp hair up for the day. When I take it down in the evening, there's a whoosh of fragrance that my boyfriend just loves. This is a classic for a reason. I'll always buy this stuff.

Does What It's Supposed To
Just bought this and am pretty happy. The gel doesn't dry as fast as I'd like, however. I usually swipe it on right before I get dressed. It goes on smoothly and feels really cold. Doesn't leave white marks on my mostly black wardrobe or a chalky residue under my arms. Dries clear and soft. I love the Ooh-La-La-Lavender fragrance - it smells pretty and fresh. So nice, in fact, that I might just buy the small bottle of body spray in the same fragrance. I am definitely going to buy this deodorant again. Oh, and I usually have to use two clicks because once you click up the product, it immediately sinks halfway back into the bottle. But, yup, this works for me and smells great.

Great for ladies who don't perspire too much under their arms, like me. I really just bought it because I liked the Cocoa Butter Kiss scent so much. The fragrance and staying power probably lasted about 3/4 of the day. It's an okay product and I will be buying Secret again. Perhaps in a diferent formula.

Good But A Tad Clumpy...
And definitely smelly! But, personally, I like the smell. One reviewer said it smelled like roses, and after reading that, I realized it's true. Perfume-y, like roses. As far as the actual mascara, I hate the fat tube and handle, as it's not comfortable to hold onto. I've actually dropped it a few times, making a mess and making me late. This mascara, like EVERY MASCARA, can be clumpy. The brush does a great job of depositing the product, almost too much so. Absolutely zero curl, but I always curl my lashes beforehand anyway. It glided on, but I got clumps after the second swipe. I have to really comb out my lashes with a clean spooly brush after each coat, to ensure an even look. My lashes were thicker, so I guess it did it's job. My friend uses this and once, she took out the wand and a bizarrely huge clump came out with the brush. It was only two weeks old! We laughed about that, but the product works beautifully on her. (She has nice, thick lashes to begin with.) All in all, I've purchased it twice and am fairly happy with the results. I go through phases where I'll prefer thicker lashes and then I'll decide I want longer lashes. So for my "thick lash" phase, this works for now.

Lovely colors, good quality
I'm ADD with my nail color so I can't really say for certain how long this brand lasts, because it's never really on for too long. I've had only one color (Over the Edge, a silvery-black/gray) that came out terrible. Dried really matte and did not look good at all. But the colors are all really pretty and true to the bottle with two coats, I've found. I use a Sally Hansen base coat and a top coat and it works just fine. My current favorite colors are Raspberry and a gorgeous purplish-fuschia called Big Spender. I also love Wicked, Rock Star Skinny and Angora Cardi.

Excellent But Use a Good Brush
I ran out of Bare Minerals and was groaning about having to spend the money for more. I bought this on a whim and LOVE IT. I used a medium minerals brush from Sephora to apply and it went on evenly, smoothly and finished flawlessly. I do get some powder-y-ness at times, but I believe I may not have had enough moisturizer on my dry cheeks for it to blend with. But it lasts a long time with medium coverage. This product easily covers my rosacea and freckles and looks believable and natural with the correct shade. I'll be switching to using this product regularly instead of my usual Bare Minerals....it works just as good and it way less expensive. Love the SPF 20.

Good For The Price
I definitely prefer Suave's Humectant S&C over this stuff. My hair is clean, fresh and soft, but just doesn't look or feel as amazing as it does with Suave's Humectant. Not sure why everyone is flipping over the scent, which I didn't seem to smell, as I was using it, or now, in my hair. It's a good product, but I'll probably just stick with my usual.

Good For The Price
I usually use Suave Humectant S&C, but decided to try this line instead. It's the same price (totes inexpensive) so why not? I don't like this as much as my usual Humectant S&C. My hair just doesn't feel as soft and silky. It feels nice and comes out smooth, but it just doesn't match Suave's Humectant. Smelling my hair now (just used the product), I only detect the faintest pleasant fragrance. I don't hate it, but I'm probably gonna stick with Suave's Humectant S&C.
