    I've also been wondering about them! Hopefully somebody chimes in. I know I saw mini versions of most of the new "rainforest" product line in the store, so I might try some of those.

    I saw them the other day too and I think I might pick up a few 60ml bottles while they have their promotion sale.

    I've used the Rainforest Moisture Conditioner as a co-wash a couple of times. I'm not crazy about the scent which IMO is herbal with a hint of honey. It is thick and creamy, moisturizing and leaves my scalp feeling clean. I didn't find it had much slip for detangling. I would attribute the clean feeling to the ingredient Salicylic Acid. Salicylic Acid in hair products diminishes flaking, clears pores and promotes cell regrowth. It's an ingredient that is used in dandruff shampoos and thinning hair products which may be of interest to some. :icon_smile: I'm not ready to say yay or nay yet. I'll use it a few more times before I decide.

    I bit the bullet & got a small of the moisture butter & the Shine coniditioner (w/olive oil). There was a sale where you could get one product for 50% off and then 3 products more for 30%, so I thought i would give them a try.
    I will report back

    soo...I used the shampoo this morning, its more like a low poo and wasn't drying at all. Didnt leave tangled or anything and has left my hair feeling clean but not squeaky. Not bad.

    I used the moisture shampoo too and found it actually good. No dry feeling when rinsed. The co didn't have a lot of slip, however for my fine hair it's not bad as I don't really like one that has too much moisture & conditioning.

    I have to say thank you so much for the rec on Britishcurlies.com CurlyMich, although I didnt style my hair curly the day I used shampoo, the next day I just used a rinse out and I had suuuuper volume and spirals ....and several compliments!!

    I havent tried the condish yet because I am loving the Marie Dean samples I have but I will try it soon. Ever tried the banana condish??

    hi! I got some just the other day. i got the "radiance" shampoo and conditioner-it's meant for color treated hair, and my hair's not colored but I loved the way it smelt so good; thats why I got it. I've only used it once and I thought it was just okay. But then, my hair has been problematic lately so it might just be me. I like the consistency of the shampoo and the fact that neither product has dyes in it. The shampoo is somewhat thick and yet easily spreadable ? My one complaint is the size of the bottles. Curlies tend to use alot of conditioner and I just felt like I had to use so much to get my hair moisturized, I'll probably be done with the bottle quickly. They are ten dollars each, 15 dollars together right now though.

    Still, my favorite thing is the smell. It reminds me of grape soda. :tongue5:

    they seem expensive in the US - here in the UK the special offer just now you get 2 for £6 (they are £4 each normally)

    maybe you get a smaller size there? IDK. It seems like most things are expensive here, to me. :/

    I did try the moisture butter & the shine condish.

    I tried the condish as a LI the first time as I was leaving out the door. My mother is sensitive to scent so I don't like to hang around with stinky product.
    It was alright
    The nextime, I washed & used the moisture butter as directed and then used the conidsh ( I didn't see that it says to add a little water with it!) .
    Boy did my hair stink, even for me. I smelt it all night long.

    I am contemplating trying again to see how I feel.
    I got 50% off on the Condish and 30% off on the butter. So at least I didn't spend too much money
