Worth every penny
This would be my regular daily conditioner, if I could afford it. I absolutely think this is worth the price tag, but I'm a student, and can't afford to buy it myself. This product is on my birthday/Christmas list every single year, without fail. I love the smell, I love the consistency, and, most of all, I love what it does for my thick, coarse, curly hair!

Kerastase is an acquired taste (smell)
My step mom passed on a tub of this stuff to me since I have such thick, dry hair and she has thin, normal hair, and therefore had no use for it. First, the good news: it really worked! It made my hair so soft and smoothed out the frizzy, curly mop on my head. Now, the bad news: as good as this product is, I just cannot get passed the overpowering perfume-y scent. Unfortunately, it truly is a deal breaker for me.

Now I love to floss
This is the only floss I can use; I just feel like all the others tear or get caught in my teeth. It really slides between teeth and is so easy to use, hence its name. I know a lot of people don't floss regularly, but I seriously can't go to bed without using this product.

Smells delicious, but...
I have exceptionally coarse, dry, curly, frizz-prone hair and am always on the lookout for a good conditioner. While the smell of Smooth Vitality is a delicious combination of avocado, bamboo, and grapeseed, it really doesn't deliver on the smoothing claim. Not only that, but my hair feels dry after I use this, which just adds to my frizziness. It may work better on hair that doesn't suffer from extreme dryness.

not just for baby skin
I'm an adult and I love this product, especially in the drier winter months. It can be used for so many things, many which have already been mentioned by other reviewers, but one thing that hasn't been said is that it's fantastic on dry, ragged cuticles. I definitely notice a difference when I don't use it as frequently and my cuticles start cracking and peeling again. For anyone who is worried that oil will leave their skin greasy or that it might take a long time to dry, I assure you that this is both quick drying and not at all greasy. The scent is delicious and I love that it is "98.04% natural."

The search is over!
I love this sunscreen for one simple reason: it's the only one I've ever used that doesn't leave my face looking and feeling like I just applied a vat of grease all over it! I have seriously oily, acne-prone skin, and I can't emphasize enough how much this product really does make my skin look matte, while providing a serious dose of sun protection. Plus, the matte effect lasts; I don't even get greasy several hours later. This works!!!

A Sephora sales associate recommended this to me when I asked about a good product to wash my face with at night. The thing about this cleanser is that it totally eliminates the need for makeup remover, which the SA said was most likely contributing to my congested, acne-prone skin. I use this at night and a cleanser with salicylic acid in the morning, and I really have seen an amazing improvement in the clarity of my skin. I definitely can't live without this.

The absolute best scrub!
This is, hands down, the best body scrub I have ever tried, and I feel like I've tried them all. It doesn't have an amazing scent, but that shouldn't stop you from trying this. I don't suffer from KP (chicken skin) so I can't attest to whether or not it works for the condition it claims to, but I can tell you that no other scrub out there leaves my skin as soft and smooth as this one. The trick is to follow the directions, which state you need to scrub your skin WHILE IT'S STILL DRY, and then rinse off. $44 may seem a bit pricey, but I'm still about halfway into my first tub, and it's been almost 3 months. A little really does go a long way. I cannot recommend this product enough!

A curly girl's best friend
I resisted trying this for a long time based on the price and the fact that all of the other so-called curl enhancing products I've tried didn't do squat. Then I saw a young woman with perfect curls on the street and just had to ask her what she used, and she said B&b Curl Conscious Creme and nothing else. I was sold, and bought some that very day, and haven't looked back. I use the Calming Creme (which used to be called Wild Woman or something) which is formulated for thick, coarse curls. Although I also use a dab of de-frizzing serum afterwards, this cream definitely gets my curls to behave without leaving them crunchy and hard. I highly recommend this!

Best for long lasting softness
I am obsessed with this lotion! I use it all over my body every night before bed and I can't emphasize enough how smooth and soft my skin is in the morning. Not only that, but my skin remains soft all day long. I'm talking baby bottom-soft. It is a tad heavy in hot summer months, but essential in the fall and winter. You will not be disappointed!
