    Promising review: "After one use I was sold on this product and decided to purchase the full size. This product adds volume and controls my oily roots like no dry shampoo I have ever used before. I can wear my day-two hair as if I had washed it that day, which has never been the case for me. Its formulation is excellent for travel, which is a bonus for me.

Depending on thickly you put the product on your face, it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful." —Grandma Fran
