Has anyone tried these products?

I went a little PJ crazy today, and spent my lunch break (and lunch money) at Lassen's Health Food store. I bought:

Giovanni 50/50 condish (trial size bottle)
Burt's Bees Avocado Butter Hair treatment
Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose condish

As you can see, I'm looking for a new condish to moisturize. I didn't care for Giovanni's leave in, but I keep hearing how everyone loves Giovanni, so I thought I'd try the rinse out, and the trial bottle was only $2 so it didn't break the bank.

Any experiences with the above that you can share with me? I really appreciate it! I've been using DevaCurl One C since I went CG a year ago, but with the formula changing, don't like it any more.
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

I've used the Burt's Bees Avocado Butter Hair Treatment and the AOHR.

The AOHR is super moisturizing. It is very thick and is easy to overcondition with. I've used it in the past as a leave-in, but now I mainly use it as a deep treatment. It's a great conditioner.

The Burt's Bees is good, but I find it to be equivalent to the same results gained from smashing up an avocado and mixing with olive oil (banana or coconut milk are optional). It is a good product, but I found the homemade concoction to be a cheaper buy.

There is an old thread about AOHR on the Product Reviews board. Just use the NC Google feature on the top right of the screen.

Thanks for answering, I was wondering if anyone would!

I tried both the day before yesterday. The Burt's Bees treatment I actually loved. The smell was so nice, very citrusy. Its a bit sticky to apply and a bit difficult to rinse out. I found I needed to wash it out, so it def. is a "pre-wash treatment" rather than a deep condish treatment, though I thought it conditioned nicely.
But then again, the fact that I got nice soft curls could be the AOHR. I liked this product too. My hair is very, very thirsty for moisture and it sucked this right up. I got gorgeous curl and am on 2nd day hair today. It's a bit dry and frizzy today, but I think that's owing to me fussing with it too much and touching it too much, etc.
