Default Botticelli Botanicals?

I really want to try the brle, especially because you can choose the scent But I'm kind of worried about the short shelf life. Do these turn really fast? because if it'll turn before I can use it up I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Not sure what you consider really fast, but the Brulee page says:

Note: The Brulee is shelf stable for at least two months if kept in a cool, dry location (cupboard instead of bathroom counter), but can be refrigerated if you so choose.

The gelee and brulee are good products. My sister has wavyish hair, and if I put the brulee in it as a styler, on dry hair, it would make it curl up better.

I just couldn't handle the shelf-life. I don't use a lot of product, like some folks, and bottles last me a long time. My hair is on the fine side and on the thinning side, so I don't use tons of stuff, and I like to rotate. So, I found I'd be throwing out bottles and jars only half-used. A waste of moolah.

But those products are good. (I did not like the SUDS, too stripping, and I never tried the MUDD)

Aww man, the shelf life is a deal breaker for me too I take a while to use products, especially styling products, up. And even if I did use them up fast, there's no way I could deal with such frequent online ordering and shipping fees. There are a few products that I use up relatively fast, and have to order online, but at least I can order them in large quantities due to long shelf life. Thanks though! You saved me some money!
