The Schwarzkopf ESSENSITY line is simply nose-candy. Why nose-candy? It doesn’t smell like candy ( that’s for sure! ) but it is definitely a treat as you’d definitely love smelling your hair, and the products all day long because of its nose-friendly scents of nature.
One of my favorite products from the ESSENSITY line is their Brushing Elixir. It’s a daily rinse-off conditioner for dry and coarse hair, enriched with Vitamins A, B, and C. It also contains freeze-dried organic essences of aloe vera that helps nourish the hair. With no chemicals and parabens in this formulation, this wins me over, much, much more.
Well, for my roadtest, I’ve been actually using this for over a week now. Using this after my ESSENSITY Moisturizing Shampoo, the first thing that will sure make me remember this product forever is its scent – just, delicious, fresh berry. It’s not the phoney-smelling artificial fragrance that you’d get from sweet-smelling scents. I promise, the scent was just quite addictive. Rinsing it off ( sigh, good things must come to an end! ) , I was ready for results.
I usually hair my dry naturally, because I’m not exactly in love with hair blowers ( hair irons, I still patronize. Haha! ) . When my hair revealed itself to me as it is totally air-dried, my hair looked smooth and soft. Just okay. Not as uber moisturizing as ESSENSITY’s Intense Curing Masque that gives reaalllyyy soft hair, but this is alright for everyday use.
But then, I’m such a demanding beauty girl that I’d prefer ESSENSITY’s Intense Curing Masque for everydays, only if my budget allowed such!
Another point that I’d like to raise up is that this is perfect for those who have sensitive scalp. Sadly, Kerastase’s Oleo Relax Masque makes my scalp break out (yes, my scalp also breaks out right now, it’s sad! allergies. sniff.), so while my scalp is being treated with topical medicine, everything needs to be mild. ESSENSITY conditioners are just heaven sent. With the price range a bit steep, it’s a worth investment as you buy comfort, and mildness here.
Note : I’ve been getting comments that I should be featuring affordable beauty products here. It’s not that I ignore affordable products, and prefer expensive brands. My transition into being a brand snob was not out of will. I’ve tried ALOT of affordable products there, but I end up being burned. Trying this 150-peso conditioner raved about tons of girls in the forum gave me my first case of horrible dandruff, and the story goes on. Taking solace in investing in more expensive products – I also try to divide the products in this price bracket into two – those that just price their products exorbitantly and don’t work, and those that really have something to offer. I am always on the lookout for those who have really good, and long lasting results. I hope that’s cleared up girlies! But then, I will really really try to scout for affordable finds out there for you.
