EXCELLENT product!While using this product for the first time, I just kept touching my skin because it felt so great! I finished the product and decided I should use up some of the other lotions I had on hand. Within a few days, my skin was feeling so dry and tight that I made a special trip to Walmart to buy.

Important to read the label before buying...This is a wonderful product that does exactly what it says. It's erased my wrinkles for years. It has actually made my skin stronger. All my husband's friends think I'm his age, but he's 10 years younger than me. I'd say that's pretty good proof of the product's ability to do what it says.   –AMcho, Tenn.

Hair helpers

Temperatures may dip, but the holidays will put the heat on your hair. Before firing up your styling tools, stock up on products that condition and protect. Pamper your hair throughout the season, and it'll look as lustrous come New Year's Eve as it did before that first bite of Thanksgiving turkey.

Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter Conditioner

97% of readers recommend

Our readers rave about how unbelievably soft and shiny their hair is after using this mega-moisturizing conditioner. And they give it bonus points for value compared with more expensive brands. Ideal for all hair types, this conditioner is especially effective for curly, thick or coarse hair.

Very surprised by the incredible qualityI have been in the beauty industry for many years and have even helped design products, so I rarely believe the hype. I tried this Suave conditioner because I was looking to take a break from my other brand, which is $16 a bottle. Suave is just as good and maybe even a little better than the other more expensive one. I absolutely recommend this.   –davidslefthand, Texas  

Remington S5500 Anti-Static Digital Ceramic 1" Flat Iron

90% of readers recommend

No one likes breaking up around the holidays. But our readers seem to think now is the perfect time to dump that expensive flat iron and start fresh with this affordable tress-taming tool. Women love this little straightener's ability to take on thick, curly hair in no time flat. Your hair is about to go from poofy to perfect.

Straight and steady!After my super expensive flat iron ceramic plate had fallen out, I decided a twenty-dollar straightener would do just as well. And I was so happy I was right! This straightener heats up in less than a minute, and although the plates may seem small, they can get any hair job done. I have thick curly hair, but if this straightener can flatten out my kinks, I'm positive it can make your hair beautiful too.   –BeautyQueen23, Conn.  

Fructis Style Flat Iron Perfector Sleek & Shine Straightening Mist

85% of readers recommend

Ladies: step away from the flat iron—at least long enough to pick up a bottle of this protective, argan oil-infused straightening mist. Our readers report easier styling, less frizz and smoother, shinier hair. Bye-bye frizz; hello fabulous!

WowI didn't even know it was possible to get my hair straighter. I use a flat iron and sometimes a hair dryer. I never even realized my hair wasn't getting that straight until I splurged on this. It smells amazing. Even before you actually use the heat, it does a little bit of straightening itself.   –Kimberly5, Ky.
