Late January I was lucky enough to receive two Crowdkits from Crowtap to full of Unilever goodies to try out for FREE in exchange for writing reviews about my experience with the products. This was a complete surprise to me because I thought I would have only been chosen for one of these samplings, not both of them, which is why I applied for both of them. Below are my thoughts on these kits.
- Rose Oil Infusion Volumizing Shampoo
- Rose Oil Infusion Volumizing Conditioner
- Natural Volume Mousse Level 4
- Compressed Micro Mist Natural Hold Hairspray
There isn’t a whole to say about this Crowdkit. I only ended up trying out the Rose Oil Infusion Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner products in the kit because I don’t really style my hair. However, I do like the idea of the Natural Mouse and Natural Hold Hairspray. And maybe I’ll end up giving these products a shot in the coming months.
One thing that I have noticed over the past few years is that my hair has thinned out some. So I was looking forward to seeing what results I would get from some volumizing products. So what did I think I about the Rose Oil Infusion products? As far as results go, I am happy with the shampoo and conditioner because I have had some positive results. My hair does have some increase in volume when I use these products BUT I am not a big fan of the smell of the products. It’s way to feminine…and a kind of smells like something an older woman would wear. It doesn’t smell bad, just isn’t a scent I would pick out.
- Anti-Dandruff Itchy Scalp Care ( with Invigorating Mint)
- Anti-Dandruff Dry Scalp Care (with Eucalyptus Extract)
- 2 minute Super Conditioner Intense Moisture
Dandruff. It’s something I have suffered from for years. So as you can imagine, I was pretty excited about received some full size products of some Suave Anti-Dandruff products to try out. I’ve only been able to try both the Suave Anti-Dandruff Itchy Scalp and the Dry Scalp products a few times but so far I am pleased with results I have noticed. I have a tendency to touch my scalp and itch but both of these Anti-Dandruff products have made my scalp feel less irritated so I rarely find myself reach for my scalp to scratch. But what about those pesky dandruff flakes? After about 2 weeks of use (used 2-3 times a week) I have noticed that I see very little flakes! At this time I can’t really say which one product is my favorite and the one I would recommend due to only using them a few times each. But I definitely can say I would recommend trying both of them out to fellow dandruff sufferers.
The other product I was sent to try out was the Suave 2 minute Super Conditioner Intense Moisture. To be honest, it really wasn’t that much of a pleasure to try out because I wasn’t sure how to use it due to lack of directions of use so I had to make a guess based on the title of the product and what little information. I procrastinated trying it out due to uncertainty of how to try it out. At the bottom of the bottle it described the product as a masque and the information on the back said hair would be style ready in 2 minutes so that suggested to me that it wasn’t to be used as a regular conditioner. I tried this product out 2 different ways: post-shower and pre-shower to see which on yielded the best results.
The first time I tried this super conditioner out I applied it to my hair post-shower when my hair was mostly dry. After drying, I could feel the product in my hair. It wasn’t something I was pleased with so I opted to just wear my hair up. Surprisingly, I noticed a big difference in my hair after I rinsed the product out in the shower. My hair felt really nice. The next time I tried out this product (a couple days later) I opted to apply to my hair pre-shower and let it just set in my hair. I let it set in my hair for about 10 minutes before hopping in and rinsing. This didn’t really make a difference in comparison to my regular shampoo and conditioner I use. Despite the good results I had the first time, I don’t really see this as a product I would use much. I still give it a good rating, just not a good fit for my needs.
**After the sampling was over I realized that it was probably suppose to be applied like regular conditioner but left in my hair for 2 minutes before rinsing.**
