    I skipped Pattern and Miche because of the shipping costs for 1 or 2 products. At least I can catch Pattern on sale at Ulta eventually or use a coupon at some point.

    Hopefully you can.:yep:...:up:

    I have Zero interest in trying this Brand/Line, at the present :nono:

    Currently, I'd much rather support the smaller lines (businesses) that are making the struggle or have struggled to grow their brand(s).

    Makes sense.

    I like that they have smaller sizes for reasonable prices so I'm trying it out.

    And accessible, since you can snatch it up at U.lta and not hafta' pay for shipping.:up: Which is a "win" and you can easily return it.

    When you try it, I hope you will give us a review on what you like/didn't? I have been reading the "mixed" reviews.

    Y’all know I ordered something pre Black Friday and didn’t pay attention the shipping. I got my shipping notification and almost fell over. I must have really wanted this because it was $15.

    @shawnyblazes I am with @prettyinpurple - Excessive Shipping Costs are a Deal Breaker for me.:eek:

    I wouldn't care!:swearing:

    All I could see every time I use it was that $15.00 Shipping.:censored:

    Cathy Howse UBH is about that High for a Liter and I get mad every time I purchase it.:burn: Although I haven't purchased it in a while.

    OT: Speaking of which...Lemme mosey on over there and see if her "stingy" behind has something going on for CM:angry2:..:look:

    Companies need to figure this out. I can't even count the number of times I deleted my cart after I saw the shipping price. Lol.

    Miss

    Vendors sending preshipments with no movement. I dont need a tracking number until after you drop it off to usps or they come pick it up. Dont send it to me because you printed it off and sat it on top of my box.

    Tentative Hit

    Curl Origin Honey & Hibiscus Leave in Whipped Cream, there's no aloe vera, no shea butter , no coconut oil. Its slightly creamy. Not too runny and it has honey low so there's not too much of a hold in the colder weather. I tried it on hair that's loose in the back and it dried soft to the touch. I have high hopes that its another LI I can count on to hydrate my hair without sealing or additional product. The smell is faint and doesn't linger.

    Hit and Miss at the same time:
    Naptual85 Twisting cream, it moisturizes my hair and makes it feel so soft for days but it leaves my hair looking ashy from the shea butter. I am sticking to using it with my cornrows under my wigs till I finish the container.

    Continued Hit

    Devacurl Buildup buster, Im slowly taking out my box braids and the buildup at the base is rough. I tried to use some QB CTDG on a braid and while it eventually loosen the hair up, the debris that came out had hair attached to it. I went back to the build up buster on the next section and boom. Hair loosened up, debris came out, and no additional strands of hair other than shed. I'll keep this around for taking down protective styles.

    Stunnababez Rice Water LI on my face. Im not supposed to have dairy but if I keep it up eventually my face flares up with eczema. This stuff just softens it up and fades it over time.
