KBB products review / Reseña de los productos Karen Body Beautiful

I was waiting to try these products for so long and my wait paid of. You may know by now that some select Karen Body Beautiful products are available at target, and they were so kind to send me all 6 products and sponsor a giveaways on this blog a month ago.
I will review each one of the 6 products independently. As I always say; this is my hairs' experience and your result may or may not be the same, for this reason please leave your comments and let me know how the products work for you.

Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Blossom 
Refreshing, hydrating mist that will soften & perk up your curls. 
Price: $16.00
Scent: Creamy Coco Mango
Size: 7.1 oz
I will try to just say it once, but I don't know if I can help my self I LOVE THE SMELL of these products so, so much. Its like perfume for your hair. This product is amazing to refresh and hydrate second hair day, it makes my hair super duper soft. This will be one of my staple products for life.. A very useful tip to take the most out of this product is that I first sprayed my hair with my water mist and finished with this amazing product.

Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner
Moisture, detangles and defines.
Price: $16
Size: 7.1 oz.
Scent: Lavender Vanilla
Amazing scent (again, lol) I like this product but I tried it several times as a style product with the super duper cream and it did not work for me as defining my curl, I also noticed a lack of shine. For this reason I decide to use it as a base for my defining cream and as a daily moisturizer.

Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream
Hydrate, Stregthen, shine. for hair and scalp
Price: $16.00
Scent: Lavender Vanilla
Size: 6.7oz
Something funny happened to me with this cream and the Gel, I was about to put it in the Never use again basket, because it just wasn't working for me, and one day I was looking at the products again and with a spatula I mixed around the product, and it was like magic; apparently some of the ingredients had settled down. This is not one of the best hair creams I have used but it's not one of the worst. If you read the ingredients you will notice all the good oils in it, but this is not an oily cream. Did I mention that I love the smell? :)

Ingredients: Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel, Argan Oil, Allantoin, Lecithin, Potassium Sorbate, Acai powder, Vegetable Wax, Vegetable Glycerin, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils & Vitamin E.

Butter Love
Soften and add sheen.
Price: $18.00
Scent: Creamy Coco Mango

I had not tried this product and I will probably use it in the summer month, because I don't like the hard consistency of it, it's really, really hard and since my apartment is very cold, taking it out will require major work. (please leave me your own review on the comments box)

Ingredients: Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao) , Mango Butter (Mangifera Indica) , Jojoba Butter (Simmondsia Chinensis), Aloe Butter, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils (Parfum), Grapefruit Seed Oil (Citrus Paradisi) & Vitamin E (Tocopherol.

I don't forget the scent, lol I can't find it, for me it is unscented which is awesome to use it in conjunction with other product lines. This Deep treatment is one of my favorite so far, super soft, it left my hair feeling like butter. I had only got this result on my hair with  Professional Salon products. LOVEeeeee it.
