Philip B. Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo ($88.00 for 7.4 oz. from Nordstrom, Space NK): This shampoo is utterly unbelievable! This ultra-nourishing shampoo features time-released botanical moisturizers that make hair soft, supple, hydrated and give it a praiseworthy glossy shine. Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo is able to give my naturally curly hair unprecedented shine, and those among you with curly tresses know the extent to which it is difficult achieve shiny curly hair, but this miracle formula really delivers serious shine. Purchase Again? I am currently using another one of their shampoos, and won't need to purchase another for a long time, but this is definitely worth the splurge at some point in the future.
KMS Moistrepair Revival Creme ($23.00 for 4.2 oz. from KMS Hair, Amazon and Walmart): This is like a big sip of moisture for the hair, and it is very impressive the extent to which it restores moisture and manageability to hair, and it also effectively controls frizz. Purchase Again? I have too many bottles of conditioner to use before I need to buy another, but I will definitely consider this again in the future.Erno Laszlo Phelityl Night Cream ($146.00 for 1.7 oz. from Erno Laszlo, Nordstrom, SkinStore, Amazon): This cream, which is pH-balancing, is formulated to repair, strengthen and hydrate your skin while you sleep. It is very thick, but miraculously lightweight, fast-absorbing and non-greasy. It quickly melts into the skin, leaves behind no residue whatsoever, and deeply moisturizes. When I wake up my skin is so soft, supple, moisturized and luminous. Additionally, it softens the appearance of fine lines and makes my skin look incredible. It can also be used during the day, but it contains no sunscreen, and therefore you need to use a separate sunscreen if you use this during the day. It has a very light and pleasant aroma that quickly dissipates, and it can be used for all types of skin. It is perfect for my normal/combination skin, but I think that people with dry skin might prefer a richer cream at night. Purchase Again? I already opened another jar.
100% Pure Apple Enzyme Exfoliating Cleanser ($32.00 for 4oz. from 100% Pure): This exfoliating cleanser features 7% fruit acids that effectively exfoliate dead skin cells by accelerating skin cell turnover to reveal a clean, clear and even complexion. I am struck by its efficacy as an exfoliator, but also by the fact that my skin isn't left taut and dry after use. Instead, my skin is left soft, smooth and luminous. This cleanser has a wonderful green apple scent that is very refreshing and pleasant. Purchase Again? I won't need another cleanser for quite a while, but I would definitely use this one again.Crystal Essence Mineral Deodorant Roll-On (Bundle of three for $15.00 from Amazon in a bundle of $6.79 for 2.25 oz. from The Crystal and Walgreens, Walmart): Their deodorants are available in a delightful array of scents, and this unscented variety. These natural roll-on deodorants offer me all-day protection and they neither stain clothing, nor do they irritate my sensitive skin. They are not antiperspirants, and therefore will not prevent sweating. Purchase Again? Unquestionably!
