taking a cue from the makeup boards thread, what bath, body and fragrance products have you tried that you found horrible?

i love perliers honey scented line, but the honey body wash is powdery and blecchy smelling.

Philosophy's Strawberry shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. It sucked! Left my skin feeling itchy and my hair rough. Did not like that combo at all. it also didnt smell too good against my skin.

i hate most of pantene's products cus they build up so badly on your hair. i always hear from hair dressers not to use those products.

I used to use Pantene products and it did make my hair silky smooth and soft. But it also cause a lot of buildup so my hair dresser convined me to switch. Maybe using it with a clarifying shampoo from time to time would be good!

THey have a lot of wax in them... hence the buildup. They make your hair seem really soft, but it's not actually helping anything - its just a coating. I'm actually going by my friend's salon for a trim in a bit, and I'm bringing my Biolage hydra-therapie vials for my treatment... those things are AWESOME!

Maybe using it with a clarifying shampoo from time to time would be good! I like Pantene Pro V range, especially the conditoner to protect and repair. I sometimes use the shampoo as well as it is very rich.I agree that using a claryifiying shampoo is good too. In fact i must get some. Janelle, what are the Biolage hydra-therapie vials like? Do tell.....

ooooh... I absolutely looooove them! I picked up a box pretty cheap at the show - it's supposed to be a 'service' at the salon... but I'm sure you might be able to find them at supply stores that sell to salons. There are 10 vials in the box and 2 applicator tips. (it looks like a cow udder! lol) You shampoo, then squeeze the "udder" to dispense it on the hair... once its all coated, you get a nice 10 min. scalp massage (best part IMO!
) And then you leave it in another 5 min. or so & rinse out. It makes such a difference you wouldn't believe it unless you felt it for yourself. Straw to silk... no joking.
They have different formulas for different hair types ... colored, damaged, dry etc. (I have the one for dry) and it makes such a total difference. My hair looks so much healthier after using it. They give you 10 vials in the box. Each one is one treatment. They aren't very big bottles, but a little goes a long way. So happy I found them!
**Added pics of hair after treatment** Please ignore the 1/2 done makeup! Also my hair isn't 2 colors, it's dark brown, but will look red when light hits it! LOL
** Sorry to veer off topic w/ this post - but I didn't know where else a reply to pauline would fit in! lol **

Jaqua Girls Buttercream Frosting-the texture of the product is ok, but the actual scent wears off and smells like plastic after a month.

Aquolina Pink Sugar is really overrated IMO. It smells really wonderful, but not as a perfume! I feel like I smell like a candy store when I wear it!

Philosophy's Gingerbread Man. Saw it on Oprah, supposed to be great product so I went to Sephora to get it. Tried it and that stuff was the worst, so I returned it and even the manager said it wasnt a great product.

My cheapy favorites: Dove Body wash and Bar Soap...I always go back to these. I love the fresh smell and both do a great job of moisturizing. I also like most of the Body Shop's body butters. And alot of Booth's products that you can usually find in alot of drugstores. Oh yeah, and Oil of Olay Quench lotion....love this stuff!!

My favorite splurges: Origins Ginger Whipped Souffle....You obviously have to love the smell of ginger and this stuff really does it's job. I leave my skin barely damp and lather it on my legs...they are stll silky at night time!!
I also love anything made by MOR...great lasting smells!! And I do actually like Aquolina....sweet indeed, but I love the feel of the body mousse...it feels very light and fluffy.

Thanks to beauty reviews, I very rarely come across yucky stuff.
I do however remember one of my aunt's used to bathe herself in Avon lotions and I had to cover my nose if I got too close. LoL...but that could have been just an over-indulgence issue.
