This conditioner brings brilliance to colored hair. It hydrates with ingredients such as Shea Butter, and protects your color with added sunscreens. I love it because it really makes my color shine and it softens tangled dry ends. I use a little less on the top of my head to prevent it from looking oily the day after I wash, as this super hydrator can be a little heavy. The added botanicals of Peppermint, Sage, and Rosemary refresh the scalp.
Vitamin E is derived from a variety of vegetable oils. It is widely known for its moisturizing and antioxidants properties.
You can find Vitamin E in all types of beauty products such as lip balms, body washes, and eye creams. It is an extremely popular ingredient because of its ability to reduce scars and help the skin healing process.
Vitamin E is thought to help reverse the damaging effects of sun and other environmental elements such as pollution. Adding Vitamin E into your beauty routine can help keep your skin moisturized and encourage its healing.
Here are a few items with the Vitamin E ingredient:
Nars Lipstick (keeping the lips velvety soft and rated best of Sephora 2006), Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough (a face serum contain Vitamin E and Vitamin C used to revitalize and firm skin), and Aveda Hand Relief (a rich hand cream packed with Vitamin A and E, and exfoliating fruit acids).

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a nutrient found in citrus fruits. Vitamin C is an antioxidant proven in studies to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.
It is used in face lotions and creams to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is also used as a main ingredient in brightening creams and serums which are a new popular addition in the skin care market.
Vitamin C is a great ingredient in your beauty products because of its clarifying and stimulating effects on your skin. Be sure to find a product that has high enough concentration of Vitamin C to be effectively absorbed into your skin.
Here are a few items with the Vitamin C ingredient:
Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate (this has a high concentration of pure Vitamin C), Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Emulsion with Vitamin C (a rich concentration of Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and collagen), and N.V. Perricone M.D. Vitamin C Ester Eye Area Therapy (brightens and lifts, not recommended for sensitive skin).
This is a deeply cleansing toner made for oily skin. It disinfects and cleans residues left behind after cleansing. It penetrates clogged pores for a clean finish. It contains 4% alcohol which I wasn’t a big fan of, but it combats the drying effects with soothing cucumber extract. If you have oilier skin and tend to break out then this maybe a good addition to your skin care regime, otherwise, you may want to try a gentler toner by Mario Badescu.
