Only deodorant I use now. Leaves me super dry, but it's like applying lotion.. smells fresh all day, sometimes if I don't take a shower the next day-- I really don't have to reapply unless I'm going out. Used to have a problem with friction (when your skin starts to darken in thin areas like under your arm; usually when you are at the peak of water weight.. it goes away after a day) but not so much when I use this, now it's more gone than not. Anyway, unless my body gets immune to this, I'm never switching.
Works really well as a gentle shampoo but I'm really confused about the conditioner you're supposed to use, I use masquintense but I think that should be used as a rinse-out treatment. I like masquintense better, though. (I use this and B&B's gentle shampoo and Pureology's nanoworks) reminds me a lot of B&B's gentle shampoo. Smells OK and lathers nicely. Doesn't leave my hair any more or less oily the next day and it maintains moisture. Only weird thing is my hair is a little static-y--which never happens. PS this is owned by L'Oreal and is pretty hard to find, even my high-end salon doesn't carry it. I found the liter size on ebay for about $50.
I bought this (for thick hair) on Ebay for about $50 (salon size) and I use this with Bain Satin 3. I've used it twice, today my hair is soft and has subtle healthy shine yet is very manageable (Pureology nanoworks is another alternative I use which leaves my hair soft but hard to style) The only things I have to complain about is well, you're supposed to use this on clean/towel dried hair, and leave it on for what, 10 minutes? I use it as a conditioner so I use it when I have the time and it's in a tub and the label on the cap is not water-resistant (which is probably because you're not supposed to keep it in the shower and use it as a conditioner) and my hair becomes baby-like, which I like but it increases static, I think the one for fine hair may help more if you have a static problem. Smells like Nivea lotion, but smells clean on dry hair. Hope this helps!
Bought on Ebay for 1/2 the price with the shampoo! As I said on my shampoo review, this works really nicely. Smells great (smells better on dry hair) and more perfume-y than the rest of Pureology. This makes your hair very soft, but with people that have my hair type (elbow length, dry highlighted/dyed, thick and wavy) it could mean less manageable hair. When I flat iron, I end up with thick waves. Love it though, and I alternate it with several others (B&B and Kerastase.)
So, when I first used this with the conditioner, I thought it was nothing special (I also use Kerastase and B&B which worked just as great) and the price was average with high end hair care (bought this, the conditioner in liter sizes on ebay for $50 each--not bad!) The benefit of this is your hair color really seems to pop more and my hair really was a lot softer, which--for those who have hair like mine-- can be a good or bad thing, soft hair usually is less manageable, when I flat iron after this my hair has big waves but is really smooth. PS, the smell was pretty strong on wet hair and perfume-y (unlike the other pureology products that are herbal) but when I dried my hair the smell really complimented most of my perfumes (smells similar to VW's Princess.) All in all I really liked this, for reference I have thick, wavy, dyed/highlighed hair that comes down past my elbows.

I use this along with Gentle Shampoo as a regular conditioner. FYI you can buy this on Ebay for very cheap! I alternate this with Pureology-nanoworks and Kerastase-masquintense for thick hair. This is my lazy day conditioner, put it on the lower 3/4's of my hair that comes down past my elbows and leave it in until the end of my shower. Works really nicely and comes in cute packaging.
PS you can buy this (liter or even gallon sized) on Ebay for 1/2 the price. I got it at my salon.. I bought this, SR conditioner, Sunday shampoo and Big Shine, and mini's of all of them and spent $200+ and although it was a huge amount, it's lasted me over 4 months and I've used almost half of this. I like it a lot as a regular shampoo, I alternate this with Kerastase bain satin 3 and masquintense for thick hair and Pureology's nanoworks. My hair is thick, wavy, dyed/highlighted and comes down past my elbows. I've never been able to keep it this healthy. This is definitely a staple. Smells nice, feels nice, gives a lather, great packaging.
I can't understand why your face would have bumps on it from using a scalp treatment.. it's not a mask. Anywho, I remember reading reviews about a scalp exfoliant and went into LUSH a few weeks ago for it and they showed me this. (I bought the wrong product) Surprisingly, this is what I was looking for. I use Pureology, Kerastase and B&B and have very high expectations for my hair. When I use a purifying shampoo weekly, I use this along with it. I have no problem getting it out. It's soothing and works wonders for those who shampoo 3-4 days/week. You're supposed to use a small amount (I use a teaspoon size) and massage it into your dry scalp and then shampoo on dry scalp, then gradually add water as you work the shampoo into your hair. It's a staple in my (very thorough) hair regiman.
