I am still on the fence about thermal protection sprays. It is one of those products that you really don't KNOW for sure if it is actually working. With hairspray, you see the volume and your hair stays in place; with serum, you see the shine and smoothness, etc. You get the point! :) With this one, I just couldn't tell. My hair is about the same if I use it and if I don't. So much the same that in fact, half the time I just forget about it. It is a very "forgettable" product; nothing special. Some commented on the smell, but I didn't find it offensive. It also detangles, but as far as protecting my hair, I am just going to have to trust Tresemme. More than likely, I will not be buying a heat protector again. I don't straighten or curl my hair; only blowdry 3x a week. I think a good conditioner is sufficient enough for people like me.

Expensive lil' treat!
This is the yummiest body oil, but the price was a bit much and I find myself "saving" it! If I recall, it was around $8. I absolutely love the sesame smell of this oil. Many of the reviewers use this in the winter, but I tend to use it in the spring and summer. It is a very light oil; not greasy at all, but it isn't moisturizing for me as much as a nice body cream or lotion is, at least not for dry winter skin. I also wish it had a pump; sometimes it can make an oily mess when pouring and applying. But the smell alone is divine. :)

I just completed a review on the conditioner, which I love even more! The shampoo is great, too. The smell is nice, it lathers well and left my hair tangle free, even before the conditioner. This one is definitely a keeper! My stylist gave me some samples to try to combat the dryness I have been experiencing for awhile, partly due to overprocessing. This shampoo is one of the best. It left my hair, clean, shiny and soft. Can't beat that! I also liked that on the bottle it specified for "unmanageable color-treated hair." I have never seen a product tackle both of these issues. Highly recommend.

Wow Wow Wow!
Okay - one more time, WOW. I absolutely love this conditioner, so much in fact, I had to race to my laptop to tell you guys about it! My hair has been super dry for a long time. I went to a "school" to get highlights to save money, and they ended up frying my hair. My locks are also long, thick and a bit coarse. I visited my hairstylist this past weekend to complain of the dryness, and we took a few more inches off. She then gave me some samples of the Super Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. The conditioner is just the best! What I immediately liked about it was that on the bottle, it stated for "Unmanageable color treated hair." I have never heard of a product that is specifically targeted for both issues; that drew me right in. The conditioner was thick and creamy, had a nice fragrance and get this - no more spray detangler! Whoop whoop. For those of us girls with long hair, I am sure you can completely understand. Needless to say, I had very good luck with this product and would highly recommend it. As a side note, Ulta sells these in the little travel bottles so you can "try before you buy." Give it a shot!

I have been using this product for at least ten years. I purchase the color Cutie almost every summer; it is universally flattering and looks so good with a tan from a can! However, I wouldn't call this a "lip gloss" as it is categorized, but rather an "almost lipstick." It is too dry to be a balm, not shiny or glossy like a lip gloss, but more sheer than a lipstick. However, it is such a versatile product! If you're looking for moisture, just put a balm under it. If you're looking for fuller color, add a lip liner. It is such an easy product to work with. The only thing I would change is to add a SPF and more moisturizing properties; it can be a little drying. I would also make it fragrance-free, though it doesn't deter me from using it. All in all, I am going to keep on using! :)

Does what it says!
This is a really good drugstore brand toner. It is nearly alcohol free and has Beta Hydroxy acid, which is actually better than Alpha Hydroxy. Their has always been a debate on whether or not toner is really necessary. After all, shouldn't my cleanser work good enough? But for only $6, I don't even care! :) It smells nice and makes my skin glow afterwards. It is perfect for sensitive skin or skin that is oilier, like mine, that you want to keep more "balanced." One caveat - for those with acne prone skin or severe skin challenges, I am afraid you would be disappointed. But for a nice, gentle, soothing toner - this does the job! Some reviewers commented on a "sticky film" afterwards. I am on my second bottle now and have never experienced this. My skin always looks cleaner afterwards and feels soothed.

Pleasantly surprised! Oooh la la.
I bought this in This Too Shall Glass, on a whim at a CVS store. I am constantly misplacing lip balms and glosses all over my car, in my purses, make-up bags and even at work! Sigghhh. A girl just can't win. :) This is just the best lip gloss. I am much more of a gloss girl than a lipstick girl and I have to say, I am picky when it comes it lip gloss. The taste must be pleasant, the gloss must be shiny, moisturizing and have good pigmentation. This has all of that! It is also not sticky and lasts. I was so pleased with this. I have bought other lip glosses, including budget brands such as Cover Girl's CG Smoothers, and this takes the cake, plus it was only a dollar or two. What a steal! It's both beautiful and smart. :)

Ehhhh... Not good at all.
Maybe it is because I am spoiled after using Bio Silk, but this product was just not good. I recently tried the heavier cream version of this by Garnier and liked it, but this one - uh uh! There were no smoothing benefits, and as odd as it sounds, I actually thought it did the opposite. My "cuticles" seemed rougher after I applied it. It didn't add any moisture or make it any silkier. As another reviewer stated, thank goodness it was inexpensive! :) I won't feel so guilty pitching it. My hair is a little dry on the ends, and a little coarse underneath. I usually blow dry it straight. If it couldn't do much for some frizz, I can't imagine it would do anything for a lot of frizz.

I was not aware this product was discontinued! I just received a free sample a few weeks ago at a women's conference I attended. It is a very nice lotion; however, the sample had a strange odor, almost like cologne for men, yet it stated Fragrance Free. It was very unpleasant. Ironically, I have a bottle of this lotion at my office that I use and it has no fragrance and is much nicer than the sample. How odd. If it truly smells like this, I would not purchase again for fear it would have the same odor.

The perfect "polisher!"
This product, although fantastic, really isn't a scrub, but more of a gentle polisher. I started using this product and eventually switched to the regular Clinique Exfoliating Scrub; the 7 Day just wasn't strong enough for my oily skin. But if you have dryer skin, sensitive or more mature skin, this is a fabulous find! It has more of a moisturized base to it than the standard scrub does, and can even be tissued of if you prefer, rather than rinsing. All in all, it is a great product and a little goes a long way. I used it for years before I switched and was always happy with it.
