My Experience with Loreal Serie Expert Citramine Pure Resource Shampoo

Packaging:

This purifying shampoo comes in an easy to track transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap on the top to prevent it from spillage. The backside of the bottle has all the desired information to guide its customers.

How to use:

Wet your hair and scalp and apply the shampoo evenly. Lather and massage for a few minutes, rinse thoroughly. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately.

Color & texture:

This is a translucent, thick gel-based shampoo, which doesn’t gather foam, unlike any other normal shampoo.

Fragrance:

The fragrance is not very strong, it has a mild smell which tends to fade away after some time.

Experience:

My experience with this shampoo has been good so far, I use it once a week, as this is not a normal shampoo but a purifying shampoo. Purifying shampoo is basically used to clean up all the hard water residue and product build-up from the scalp and hair. People with oily hair can use it once a week and people with dry hair can use it once a month. If you have extremely dry hair, then you can avoid using it.
As this shampoo doesn’t gather foam, therefore, I use a small amount again to clean my hair properly before finally rinsing it off with water. Conditioning your hair after the shampoo is optional, but I use a conditioner thereafter as I have a few frizzy hairs. The Loreal official site suggests using it with Serie Expert Vitamino Color Conditioner but I use any normal conditioner followed by a good serum. This shampoo is not very easily available elsewhere, other than the Loreal salons, buying online will be a good idea.

Pros:

1. Though expensive, one bottle goes on for many months, therefore, not at all a bad deal.
2. True, as they claim, all the build-up and residue are removed, leaving hairs light and manageable.
3. Transparent packaging makes it easy to track the leftover amount
4. Controls oil
5. Adds extra bounce and shine
6. Makes scalp clean and healthy
7. Can be clubbed with any conditioner
8. Strong spill-proof packaging

Cons:

1. Not travel friendly
2. Not easily available

Would I recommend it?

I will definitely recommend this product to everyone. I have a hard water problem in my area and after using this shampoo, I have felt a change in my hair. We all use styling products, so it becomes very important to use a clarifying shampoo now and then to remove the product build-up. This shampoo stands true to its claim.

Jovees Grape Seed & Almond Hair Serum

Price: 285 for 60ml
Sensitive skin alerts: No

My Experience with Jovees Hair Serum

Packaging:

This hair serum comes in transparent plastic bottle packaging, with a pump dispenser. One needs to press the pump tightly to dispense the desired amount making it spill-proof.

How to use:

Dispense coin size amount of serum into your palm, rub vigorously and apply to the clean and wet hair. It absorbs quickly, keeping the hairs moisturized for good 6-7 hours.

Color & texture: 

It has a gel based texture with medium consistency; as it’s not too runny so it’s easily manageable and easy to apply.

Fragrance: 

This hair smoothening serum has a strong smell of almond which may not be liked by some, but not to worry as it fades away too soon.

Experience

“So far, so good”.

Randomly looking for hair serum made me land to this jovees product. What caught my attention were its natural ingredients like Almond, Grapeseed oil, Olive oil among many others. True to its claim, it is a non-sticky hair serum which adds shine and gloss to the hairs. Though one can use it daily, I use it only after the shampoo to my wet hairs, as my hairs tend to get oily too soon and applying serum to oily hairs is not a good idea. A small amount gives a good coverage to my medium length thick hair. I have frizzy hairs, so it smoothens the hair, making it manageable for a long time. If you have thin hair, you may want to skip this one as it will make the hair look much thinner.

Pros:
  1. Leak-proof packaging
  2. Economical
  3. Non-sticky
  4. Easily available everywhere
  5. Stands true to its claim
  6. Easy to carry while traveling
  7. Adds shine and gloss
  8. Can be used on a daily basis
Cons: 
  1. It can make thin hair look much thinner
  2. Strong fragrance
Would I recommend?

Stands true to its claim, I will recommend this product.

Jovees White Water Lily Moisturizing Lotion

What is it and who is it for? Jovees White Water Lily Moisturizing Lotion is a light moisturizing lotion fr dry to combination skin.

Jovees White Water Lily Moisturizing Lotion

Price: INR 210 for 100ml
Sensitive skin alert: No

My Experience with Jovees White Water Lily Moisturizing Lotion

Packaging:

This travel-friendly product comes in a white bottle packaging with a pump on the top, the pump makes sure the desired amount is only dispensed and there is no spillage. The back side panel of the bottle has all the required details which make it easier to judge the product.

How to use :

Wash and pat dry your face with any mild face wash and apply the desired quantity of the moisturizer all over your face and neck.

Color & texture: 

This water lily reinforced moisturizer is white in color and has a very smooth texture, which makes it easy to spread and absorbs quickly.

Fragrance:

 This quick absorbing moisturizer has a very intense fragrance of water lilies, which stays for a long time if applied properly all over the area.

Experience

By far this is the best moisturizer I have come across in a very long time. The pump on the bottle dispenses a small amount at a time, but more than required quantity can leave your skin greasy, and also this not so lightweight moisturizer can sometimes make you feel heavy.  Due to its chemical free and anti-inflammatory components, daily usage will not lead to acne. I mostly use this under my make up as it blends perfectly and doesn’t make my face look patchy. Moreover, I also use this moisturizer to remove my makeup after the party. This product can be used in any weather and most useful for the dry skin.

Pros:
  1. Keeps the skin hydrated for a long time
  2. Absorbs quickly
  3. The fragrance stays for long
  4. A true value for money
  5. Travel-friendly
  6. Best gift for dry skin
  7. Doesn’t lead to acne
  8. Spill-proof
  9. Easily available in the market
  10. Blends easily with all makeup products
Cons
  1. More than required quantity can make the skin look greasy
  2. Does not cover any spot or mark
  3. Will not stay for a long time, if the skin is too dry
Would I recommend?

I am one of those people, whose skin gets oily with a single drop of moisturizer. But quick absorption formula of this moisturizer made me its loyal customer. Being a victim of combination skin myself, I will highly recommend this product
