i have... i use their face hydrating lotion for my body - i love the smell... i had a friend who worked at a chic spa and she said that aveda was terrible and that it is known that aveda products suck throughout the industry and that is why if you go to a salon that uses aveda they have an exclusive contract with them and usually can use nothing else and you rarely find salons that use aveda on their own among other lines???... that always sticks in my head for some reason when i go to buy their products... damn her!

I used to work at an Aveda salon and absolutely loved their products! I didn't care too much for their makeup, but some of their things are the BEST...the PureFume shampoos smell and feel really good, and rinse clean; their Universal (Thermal) Styling Creme, Anti-Humectant Pomemade and Humectant Pomade are INCREDIBLE. I for one *love* their exfoliant, too, it is so gentle and smells really clean and fresh. That's about the only one I buy these days, since I don't get a discount anymore, but I've always loved their products!

Doesn't Aveda have salons where they cut and color hair? How are those?

I use their shampoo and I think Aveda makes the Bumble and Bumble line as well.

I've heard that as well. Turned me off Aveda as well sine so many people have said that they're bad quality.
I do however appreciate the company's environemental conciousness and their products have a real distinct organic scent that I love.

I've used the skin care line before and it was fine... not great but not bad either. But for the same price range you can get Dr Hauschka skin care that I find infinately better and more nurishing on the skin.

I used to go to a hairdresser that exclusively used Aveda and of course they talked me into buying something every now and then. I was never too impressed with the brand... I think it's relatively expensive and the 'natural' image is all about marketing. However, they smell delicious!
