Curl Junkie/Donna Marie favs?

I bought 2 of the aveyou.com Groupons. I was looking to buy curl junkie or donna marie (or both?), just trying to figure out what to order. What are your favorite products from those two lines? Thanks!

I like the smoothing lotion from curl junkie. It has a lot of slip and it smells like vanilla, along the lines of kinky curly. I haven't had much luck with Donna Marie. I could only recommend the super butter creme. It smells like cupcakes/buttercreme frosting. I like sweet smells, lol.
Whoop whoop!

I like all of the CJ products that I have tried, especially the Smoothing Lotion, Curl Queen, Argan Oil and Olive conditioner and Curl Rehab.
I also love every single CJ product I have tried, namely the Deep Fix, Curl Rehab (I have used this as both a DC and a leave-in. I once baggied with it but my hair felt over-moisturised, something I never thought was possible), CIAB, Repair Me.

I have the Smoothing Lotion and the Curl Queen, but haven't tried them yet.
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far

Thanks ladies! This is going to be a hard decision. Sounds like the smoothing lotion is a must try. Would love some more input!

I love the CJ Smoothing Lotion, Daily Fix, Curls in a Bottle (as a finisher), and Argan and Olive Oil Conditioner (I don't know too many people that like this one besides me though).

I also really love the DM Dream Curling Creme, Cocoa Hemp Buttermilk, and Super Buttercreme (as long as it doesn't seperate). I haven't tried any thing else from this line though.
My true is Curl Queen I can't live without that stuff, I also like the Smoothing lotion and the Beauticurls Strengthening Hair Conditioner, CIAB.

Your daughter's hair is gorgeous!!!!

Great style technique, wondering if it'll work on a flat twist-out...

Thanks ladies!!

@montREALady, I think it will work just fine on a flat twist out.

By the way, I ordered 6 of the curl junkie products. Smoothing lotion, curl queen, curls in a bottle, deep fix, curl rehab, and Curl Junkie Hibiscus & Banana Honey Butta. Thanks for your suggestions!
