smells divine but does not last long

a bit pricey but it smells luxurious. The upside is it can be used for hair skins and eyebrows. However i dont find this worth the price.

Good for body moisturiser

Received a generous sample of this in my recent AB haul. I was surprised that it has a lightweight texture despite of being marketed as a 'balm'. It has a pleasant smell and I love the fact that it is a universal balm. However, I do not find it it nourishing for my hair. Additionally, despite of having light texture, it weigh down my hair and making it looks greasy (I have fine hair). Nonetheless, I really like it as a body moisturiser.

Excellent serum for frizzy hairs

I have really frizzy hairs after washed, this product definitely help to control my volume frizzy hairs, and my hairs feel much smoother next morning and easy to manage and styling. Is expensive but it’s worth and I will repurchase again.
