Comments: 

I followed instructions for this product: Faithfully, or to the letter.
Comments: 

If I was making this product, I would change: Nothing.
Comments: Sparkling Soda is a "shine mist" that tames frizz and flyaways.  Having naturally frizzy hair, I was doubtful yet hopeful that this product would work.  Turns out it does work!  It does not make the hair oily, like some other products do, but does exactly what it says.  It keeps the flyaways in place, adds a bit of shine, and is extremely lightweight and not heavy at all like hairspray can be.

I would recommend this product to a friend: Enthusiastically. 
Comments: 

I am _________ this product: Running right out to the store to buy.
Comments: This is a true Beauty Buzzy worthy product!  I give it an A+.

Anything else you would like to add? Keep it in your purse for high humidity days!  It keeps bad hair days to a minimum!

Comments: The packaging is extremely elegant and will look nice sitting on your granite countertop or spa Jacuzzi tub!

This product exceeded my expectations.
Comments: It comes with a cloth to add an exfoliation component.

I followed instructions for this product: Faithfully, or to the letter.

Comments: As a regular user of age-defying products, I find many of them burn or sting (no pain no gain, right?) Well this is a product that feels good. It left my skin feeling clean, fresh, and healthy. It added a lot of moisture to my skin without feeling greasy.
