I've tried both the sugar beet and the green tea shampoo and conditioners. It took me a few shampoos to get used to the lack of lather. I like the sugar beet shampoo better and the green tea conditioner better of the 2 types. The sugar beet cleaned my hair really well, and made my hair really shiny after a few washes. I found the green tea shampoo cleaned too well and made my hair feel sort of stringy and dry, and I found the sugar beet conditioner didn't quite moisturize as nicely as the green tea one, it was more liquidy and lighter.

I also love their lemon cuticle cream, it's the only thing I've found that helps my terrible cuticles. I also really liked their tinted lipbalm, it's like a really moisturizing sheer lipstick. I think when I run out of my current body wash I'm going to try a burt's bees one, they look really nice!

Maybe it'll work for me too, as I have fine hair, as diesanni has. But, even though it's very fine, my hair has so much volume, feels hard and is difficult to style, so I'm always looking for something that makes my hair soft and fluffy. I guess I'll have to go with trail and error^^. What hair texture do you have Belowen?

Oh, which shade in tinted lipbalm do you have? I wanted to order one, but it's so hard if you can't test them...

^I think the most important thing is that you make sure you get it all out again. I use it abut twice a week and when I do I wash my hair until it "squeaks" beneath my fingers. Maybe you can ask for a sample first.

FleurDeLys: I had raisen, which was a nice brickish red colour, but it looked better when my hair was it's natural mousy brown/blonde colour. Once I dyed my hair red it didn't look quite as nice. I also had the pinkish one (guava?) and it was a nice your lips but better colour on me. But my lips are quite pink naturally so it might show up more on someone with paler lips.
I really want to try the peony shade it looks really pretty.

Yes, that's what I meant. I always wash my my hair until it makes that weird sound when I run my fingertips through it to make sure there is no shampoo or other product left.

Haha, I ran my fingertips through my hair to see what you mean, and noticed the sound. I never did before! But I now know what you mean

TY. I wanted guava too, but I don't like lip colour if it's too pink. It doesn't go well with my hair/eyes. I prefer redish or coral-pinkish colours, so I think I'll go with rhubarb.
