I like it a lot!

I have only used this on my face and neck area so far. The 1st time I used it, I applied 1 coat, waited about 5-10 min’s and applied a 2nd coat. In about 4 hrs. I had a nice tan on my face! It isn’t as noticable on the neck area but that section seems to be more stubborn with any product. I wish I could tell where I’ve applied it, but other than that, I think it’s great so far! It creates a real nice color and is easy to apply; smooth and creamy feel to it. I will keep using this and I’m sure I’ll end up buying more. I wish they had it in a larger, pump bottle…. great stuff!

Another disappointment

I read pretty positive reviews on this sunless tanner and liked the fact that it’s from an organic company that doesn’t add a bunch of crap chemicals to their products. It was cheap so I gave it a try. The smell wasn’t horrible. The color guide could have been darker (I like to really be able to see where i’m putting it so I don’t end up with missed patches and streaks). I did get some color from this, but not enough to repurchase. The color looked…ok…indoors but more on the yellow/washed out orangeish side when I went outdoors. Not pretty. I’m very pale so that could be a big reason. May be better suited for someone who already has a golden tone to their skin.

Happy and impressed…

I was really impressed with this self tanning lotion. I liked the olive oil component in it and I actually liked the scent! I appreciate that it’s made in the US and contains so many natural ingredients, but more than anything… it’s about the tan. I was really really happy with the brown in the results (as opposed to orange). Of all the different application methods, lotions are my least favorite, but the reviews on this one had me try it once more and I’m really glad I did. I think I’ll really use this one in the cooler months when my house is drier and my skin sucks up the moisture of a lotion super fast. In the meantime, I just lay in room under a fan and watch TV for 20 minutes to speed up the drying. Overall, I think the benefits of the moisture far outweighs the nuisance of extra drying time. Besides, isn’t tanner softer skin what we’re ultimately trying to achieve? Win-win.

Origins Checks And BalancesTM Frothy Face Wash 150ml

Find your balance. When it comes to faces with dry and oily places, it takes a clever cleanser to balance the two. This gentle, frothy face wash carefully does both jobs without canceling each other out. Konjac powder seeks out oil, soaks it up then keeps it well in-check, while wheat protein balances and protects dry prone zones. And broadleaf kelp breaks down dirt, disperses excess oil and sends dullness down the drain. There’s also aromatic bergamot, spearmint and lavender to add pleasure to the process. Skin feels comfortably refreshed after cleansing, never tight, pulled or parched. Checks and BalancesTM is best for combination/normal skin. How to use: Squeeze small amount into palm, add tepid water to lather. Swirl over skin, steering clear of eyes. Rinse thoroughly. Great for A.M. and P.M. cleansing. 150ml

Loved for a while then was too harsh

I was using this face wash for a couple of months and I absolutely loved it! It kept my skin from becoming too oily through out the day! I loved using this product and was recommending it to all of my friends. After about 6 months, I began to have problems with my eyes. They would get red and irritated and I changed everything in my routine but my face wash. I tried to stop using Checks and Balances and my eyes got immediately better! While I did really like this product, it was a little too harsh for my skin. I have very sensitive, combination skin. I think this would be great for people with tougher skin!

a perfect cleanser for combination skin

I love the smell of this cleanser. The combination of Bergamot, Lavender and Mint create a wonderfully fresh smelling scent, which to me is sort of an earthy mintiness.I only need to use a small dime-size amount of this cleanser. It has the consistency of a thick lotion and develops into a nice frothy lather. While I could splash it off with water, I find that it’s better to use a wash cloth to thoroughly rinse it off.The results are really amazing. My oily T-zone feels clean but my cheeks (typically dry) don’t feel tight or dry. Makeup is thoroughly washed off and the cleanser doesn’t irritate my eyes I had been having some issues with minor breakouts but since using this cleanser for the past few weeks, my skin has seen noticeable improvement.While this cleanser doesn’t dry out the skin, I didn’t find it to add moisture either. But with this type of cleanser I didn’t have expectations that it would. In the past I have used a lot of cream cleansers (non-foaming) which were great for the dry skin, but didn’t help much with the oily areas. Checks and Balances is the happy medium – nice foaming action while managing to maintain skin’s natural moisture level.

It does really really work!

I was recommended this product from reputable hair an cosmetics company from Cal. so I tired it an they were right. This is the best price I’ve ever seen it for also.My lashes b/4 Nutra Lux MD had thinned and fall out easily an were short an thin. If I pulled them gently when trying to get a chunk of mascara off often I’d end up with a few lashes with it. Yes we lose lashes everyday and they regrow in 6-8 weeks, but mine would leave spaces for weeks. My bottom lashes are not even visible an barely there with mascara.After Nu Lux MD use for 3 weeks (twice a day) I started to see the new lashes growing in a little thicker an a few more. By 6 weeks they looked good enough for me to just put one coat of mascara on an leave the house. By eight weeks, I tinted them black an could leave them an feel Ok, even without mascara and I couldn’t do my usual crimp with the eyelash curler since they had grown long enough that they touched my top lid after I did that. So then I started using a curling mascara formula instead. As matainance I cut back to once a day for 3-4 weeks.All was good, then I got lazy an didn’t use it at all for 6 weeks. Mistake! As they fell out the grew back in thin an yucky again. Hate it, have to use for life I guess.I’m back into my 4th week again. Only thing is it is slightly irritating to eye, making lids redish, so I have to put concealer on in morning. I’m still on my first tube but nearing the end. I’d say I got 3-4 months out of tube. My eyes are my best feature (with lashes that is). Won’t go without it again.

I have lashes again!

I purchased this as another product I was using stopped working for me. I am age 55 and my lashes started falling out (bare spots) and the length was no longer there. I also used on my brows as they were becoming very sparse too. My brows have filled out a bit more, but have seen the bigger difference with my lashes. I would not have minded losing the length of my lashes, but was very unhappy with the bare spots as it was very noticeable. So right now I have the length (as in years past) and no bare spots. I have been using since September 2011 and starting seeing results by the end of November and ordered another to have on hand when this one runs out (which it has not yet).Just as an aside, I had been having problems with my lashes since the late 80’s which I thought was caused by some stress I was having at the time. After that, every once in awhile – my lashes would have bare spots and grow back, but once menopause started the problem increased (along with brow loss) and the length of my lashes had diminished.I have not had any issues with my skin though I did notice a little irritation after a month (red eyes) when using every night, but once I saw results I now use every other night. I don’t know if anyone will have this issue, but someone else mentioned in another review and kept that in mind. I do use it every night on my brows.I recommend it highly.

Harsh and irritating! Sensitive people beware!

This product is very harsh for me. For several years I have used and been happy with Rapid Lash by Promaxyl. For whatever reason, Amazon stopped carrying Rapid Lash for several months and then when it returned, it was more expensive. I decided I would try another lash product at or around the same price with comparable reviews. Unfortunately, that was a big mistake! Instead of heeding the reviews that mentioned redness and irritation, I thought I would be fine since I had been using a similar product for years with nothing more than a bit of hyperpigmentation on my upper lids. After one use, I noticed redness, itchiness and an uncomfortable burning sensation not unlike sunburn on my eyebrows and eyelashes. After the second use, I woke up in the middle of the night from a sound sleep, itching my eyes and feeling like I was having a hot flash only in the eye area. Needless to say, I have not continued and since it’s an opened product, the Amazon retailer I purchased from will not work with me in any way. I am out forty dollars but I plan to send this back to the original company with my complaints, hoping that they will do a better job in the future making a product that can accommodate those with sensitivities.

27 day trial results would have me asking for my money back – UPDATED 4/26/14

I’m a forty-something with color treated, thick, wavy hair that requires daily conditioning. I frequently using Argan oil infused products to maintain my hair’s shine, softness and manageability. Periodically I have issues with dry hair when having been using a flat iron or similar heated hair styling equipment..When this product arrived it was packaged in bubble wrap, which was a good thing as it leaked all over itself! I’m not sure how much product was actually lost, but I would like to see the manufacturer put a seal on it to prevent this from happening to others.The scent is pleasant and very light. The texture of the product is smooth and thinner than expected. Not sticky or ‘pudding like’ as some others I’ve used, nor like the photo on Amazon, it’s more like runny, inexpensive conditioner. Not creamy as much as drizzly.I used a generous amount as recommended on the container, working it into my newly shampooed hair and then combing it through and leaving it on for 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water. My hair was not particularly dry, but the restorative hair treatment mask did seem to soak in a bit.Upon styling I noted no loss of shine from my recently colored hair, but I also noted no enhanced shine, improvement of texture, hydration or manageability, which was a disappointment. While this product may work on fine hair, as it’s truly more of a light conditioner rather than a hydrating, restorative hair treatment mask, it did nothing for my hair.Because there are so many hair care products on the market that restore and hydrate, and do a good job on all kinds of hair,for less than the asking price of this product, I give this a 3 out of 5 star rating. I don’t like it as it didn’t work as expected, nor is it as pictured.At the present time I will not recommend it to others because I do not believe the product can actually full fill the promise to ‘naturally hydrate and repair dry and damaged hair’ of all kinds. It can be used daily, weekly or monthly per the packaging, but I’m not sure if used daily you’d have enough for a full month’s trial.The product link indicates it can be used as an ‘intense’ leave in conditioner. I’ll be giving that a try too. It does come with a 30 day money back guarantee, so it may be a gamble worth taking for some who are interested in giving it a try.NOTE: I received this product from the manufacturer in exchange for my honest review. Please be aware that I will continue to use it for a full 30 Days and update this review with a higher star rating if warranted.UPDATE: 4/26/14I ran out of the product before the 30 days were up, and if I had paid for the item I would be contacting the company for my money back per their guarantee.Perhaps it’s my hair? Or maybe I got a product that was faulty? (I did receive a product without a seal that appeared runny, not creamy as pictured.)While I noticed no damage to my color treated hair (color remained well saturated, no stripping) I never noticed any revitalization. I did use the product to smooth fuzziness from time to time and it helped, but I had to be very careful about not putting on too much to avoid a greasy look. I never really felt a major improvement in the texture (smoothness) or sheen (shine) of my hair, and that’s what I was looking for from the product.I did not reduce the star rating to 2 stars as I usually would, due to the factors I’ve mentioned in the update. However, I would not recommend this product.

An average conditioning product

NOTE: I received a free sample of this product from the manufacturer to review.I have fine, thin hair that does require conditioning–without this, it can become tangled and hard to manage–but that can also easily become limp. In addition, I have experienced a lot of scalp itchiness in the winter, so I have searched for hair products to help with this.I was especially interested in trying this product after another version of Argan oil I tried100% Pure Argan Oil for Skin, Hair, Face and Nailswas very messy and difficult to use. I thought that this product, billed as a “mask,” might be more user-friendly. Unfortunately, when it arrived, the product had leaked; the culprit turned out to be that the cap on the jar was not screwed on all the way. Luckily, the jar was wrapped well in a bubble-wrap envelope and then further bubble-wrap on the outside, so it leaked into the inner wrapping only.The directions instruct the user to apply this product after shampooing, combing through the hair and leaving in an additional 10-15 minutes prior to rinsing. I used the mask in replacement of my normal conditioner, and to be honest, I did not see any special benefits beyond what I would usually see from my every day conditioning. Because the product can be used daily, I tried it a second day in a row. (Note: after applying generously a second time, half the jar was now gone.) Again, it left my hair feeling nice enough, but certainly not the amazing results which the advertising suggested, and only a minimal (if any) impact on my scalp dryness.This is not a bad product, but at least for my type of hair, I found it no more effective than a much less expensive drugstore conditioner. Given this, I cannot recommend this product, as I did not get the intended results.UPDATE 4/6/14: I have found the results that I had HOPED to get for my hair from tea tree oil instead. I just add a few drops of a product likeDerma E Tea Tree & E Oil, and it works wonderfully.

This Gives Me (Almost) Instant Silky Hair (5- stars)

I love how this argan oil hair mask makes my hair silky, manageable, and even easier to style in only 5-15 minutes.First, about my hair: I have shoulder-length, untreated (no dyes, no perms, no straight ironing) hair. It’s that kind of hair that looks like it should be straight but which never is drying every last strand with a brush and blow dryer. I have a lot of hair, so it looks thick, but the hair itself is fine and flyaway. I absolutely must use a conditioner to keep it in check.Next, the results: All I need to do is shampoo my hair and comb in the hair mask. After 5-15 minutes, I rinse it out. I can feel the effects instantly. My hair has NEVER felt that silky after using a conditioner. Because I don’t have dry or damaged hair, I keep the mask in my hair for 5-10 minutes, but if you have hair that’s crying for additional moisture, I advise leaving it in for the longer time. When I get out of the shower, I can run a comb easily through my hair. Blow drying results in a lustrous — and this is important to me — straight look. Yes, I still have to style my hair with the hair dryer, but my hair takes to it much better than it did with other products I’ve tried.The hair mask comes in a jar. This is the only thing I wasn’t wild about: the mask is the consistency of a cream conditioner, but I have to scoop it out of the pot with my fingers. It’s not easy transferring the mask from pot to hair without losing some along the way. If this came in a squeeze bottle, it would be perfect.As with all oil treatments, I was a little leery that my hair would look greasy afterward. (I’ve tried straight argan oil, and I didn’t like the results.) Not to worry! My hair looks and feels normal — only better. Note: I received a sample for review.– Debbie Lee Wesselmann

Excellent, best of the best

I’ve used Albolene to remove mascara for over 30 years (yikes) and even when I tried to replace it with dept store brands that matched the mascaras (Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clinque, you name it) none of the other brands ever came close to being as good as Albolene….Never gets in your eyes or interferes w/contact lens wearingI have much fewer eye wrinkles, where the Albolene has been in contact, than any of my friends in their late 40’s. I’m careful about sun, etc., but I really believe Albolene has been a big part of my good-around-the-eyes skin.I don’t use it on my face because I am oily skinned and find I need regular cleansers.The price here on Amazon is exactly HALF of what they charge at CVS & RiteAid….Highly recommend….. works just as well w/waterproof mascaras….

Only one of the best makeup removers on the market

Stage makeup and body paint are both part of my craft and easily wiped away with Albolene. It is equally effective removing everyday makeup. Over time I have even noticed that the skin around my eyes and mouth has remained soft and smooth because of the mineral oil ingredient. I often leave a dab on my lips before going to bed at night to keep them moisturized.Albolene is reasonably priced for the effectiveness and quantity which lasts a couple of months at least with daily use. There are no perfumes or ingredients that would irritate most sensitive skin (like mine) and the moisture properties are a great bonus. I highly recommend it!

Fragrance?

A few of the reviews mentioned the “overpowering” smell of Abolene, but personally I couldn’t smell it. I have heard no comments from my husband and he has a sensitive nose. So whether that was a problem that was fixed later or my nose is gone, I didn’t have that experience.Here’s the experience I did have. My skin is dry now where in places that have previously been oily. And my skin tends to be sensitive and break out from sime moisturizers or skin treatments. So I read an article in a woman’s magazine where their panel reviewed various skin treatments and this sounded like it could work for me.And it does. I use it to wash my face and my skin is soft and smooth. It plumps up some of the fine lines I have on my face. I have also used Abolene as a moisturizer for my body. Just one application to my elbows made a world of difference to my elbows. No bad reaction form my skin from using Abolene.It may seem pricey, but it really isn’t when you compare it to other moisturizers. You only need a very small amount to get good results. I would recommend this to anyone who has a problem with dry skin.

Want stretch marks? Snatch this up.

I used nothing but Palmer’s cocoa butter lotion on my belly for my first pregnancy. Post-birth, my tummy was as sexy as ever. For some ungodly reason (I blame pregnancy hormones, and the name of the product, since my husband calls me “Mama Bee” and I thought it was adorable), halfway through my second pregnancy I switched from Palmer’s to this. TOTAL FAIL. I gained less weight than I gained during my first pregnancy, and yet just a week after starting to use the Mama Bee Belly I started BREAKING OUT into small stretch marks near my belly button. I immediately switched back but the damage was done. Gone is my beautiful stretch-mark-less belly, and the (admittedly small) stretch marks are here to stay. I hate that I switched products; if you find something that works for you, STICK WITH IT.

Authentic Organic African Shea Butter FILTERED & CREAMY 32 Oz

Why do we filter it? Raw Unrefined Shea Butter is shipped from Africa full of impurities and broken shells etc. We Systematically clean most of it, we pack it well and we sell it as such. However 10% of all the impurities cannot be removed unless we melt the Shea Butter at a controlled temperature. Then We mechanically filter it, add shea oil to it to increase the ratio of the fatty acids then restore it to its solid state through a process we ( Organic Herbal Essence ) mastered in our Lab so that the final product is nevrer grainy nor brittle but rather soft and creamy. Please Note that Shea Butter hardens in cool temperature and softens when slightly heated. The filtered shea butter is much superior at the unfiltered one although both are RAW AND UNREFINED, it also saves time and money since the filtered Shea butter is ready for use right away.

Key features

  • •Shea Butter very creamy, clean and Soft
  • •Ready to use right away
  • •Organic Grade A
  • •Freshly made, shelf life 2 years

Not true to its decription

This product is greasy and grainy. It does melt after rubbing it into your hands for a few seconds. The product came in a container that wasn’t sealed properly it is bright yellow and from what I understand from researching the description of what real unrefined organic shea butter is suppose to look like the color should NOT be yellow. There is a sticker on the container that says 100% authetic organic but I DON’T THINK SO!! Will not be ordering this product again from this seller! NO WAY!

It is not pure, organic, unrefined shea butter…but it does not say it is.

I purchased this product after my family continued to have ongoing issues with dry skin and hair. After reading about all of the benefits shea butter had to offer, I decided to purchase it. I chose this vendor due to the overwhelmingly positive responses.This product was a good substitute for the petrolatum, lanolin, and mineral oil based products were we using in my household. However, the positive affects began to wear off after about a month of use. I noticed dry areas returning for myself, my daughter, and my husband. I did more research to figure out what the issue might be.The real issue is that this product is not pure, organic, unrefined shea butter. It has been filtered, and refined. Additionally, some type of oil has been added to it. Oil, in most cases, does not moisturize. The molecules in oils are too large to permeate skin and hair shafts so they usually just sit on the surface. Shea butter is an emollient. It has sealing abilities as well as moisturizing abilities. Therefore, adding oils and refining it reduces its effectiveness.I would recommend only using this product in place of vaseline or some other non-moisturizing product. If you are looking for all of the REAL benefits of shea butter, purchase from a fair trade, certified organic website that guarantees unrefined, organic, un-tampered with shea butter.

shea butter heaven

Authentic Organic African Shea Butter Filtered & Creamy is so amazing. I melt it in the microwave for 20 sec. It looked like rich heavy liquid gold. I couldn’t believe the texture. It was heavy, thick, and rich. Nothing like the fake shea butter they have out on the market. It smelled like medicine. I never seen or touched shea butter so pure and rich before. This is a great deal for the price.

Love this hairspray

My hair stylist was the first to use this on my hair. I love it. It doesn’t leave your hair sticky but has great holding power. The scent doesn’t over power you. You can comb through it once it dries and your hair feels normal. I have fine curly hair and this spray works wonderfully for me. I recommend this to all. Amazon is a good place to find this product and they have it for a good price.

Smells delicious, makes hair twice as thick.

I’ve been using this product for several years, and have tried some other hairsprays as well, but this is the best because1) It literally makes your hair several times thicker2) It smells so good that people will ask you if they can come up and smell you3) You can go a couple days without showering and not feel greasy4) It’s very strong but not ridiculously stiff-feeling5) It doesn’t take much, so a bottle lasts a long timeThe only possible drawback to this product is you might not want to wear it if your perfume is not similarly fruity. But it smells so good you don’t even need perfume.

Enough Hold for Long Layers & Shines

Great hold. Maybe too much hold to use as working spray. I have tried so many so called “Super” and “Freeze” sprays that will not hold my volumnous style for more than 5 minutes, including Paul Mitchell’s with the red cap. I use those failed sprays as my step 1 working spray, then this TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece as step 2. If I have a long day or it’s windy outside, I use TIGI’s purple non-aerosol pump which has mega hold as step 3. I have long layers and I like to fluff up the crown a bit. It is also great for stray hairs like around the face.This Masterpiece spray has a fine mist, the hold is strong but not too stiff, doesn’t leave a white powdery finish, leaves your hair shiny. It’s comparable to Kenra 25, Redken’s Forceful 23, but not quite as strong as Sebastian’s Mega Hold which is hard for me to find. Actually, the Sebastian will leave a white finish if I accidentally spray too much so I don’t even look that hard for it. The TIGI, Kenra, and Redken do not. TIGI Hard Head is also good and very similar to this. If I didn’t look at the can, I probably cannot tell the difference. I buy whichever is on sale or lowest priced with store coupons like Ulta, JC Penney Salon, or mall salons/retailers. Hope this helps you to choose.
