I bought this conditioner because I am a fan of the Aussie range and because I have long hair which I am growing longer, the name of this conditioner is what attracted me. My hair is long but with some damage and dryness at the ends so I need something which will condition and moisturise my hair. My hair is between wavy and curly and I like to define the curls and for them to be 'springy' so I don't like conditioners which weigh my hair down too much, it can be difficult to find that perfect balance between smoothing and conditioning whilst still being light enough not to drag my curls out.
Firstly the smell of this conditioner is just heavenly! It is very sweet and smells a lot like the other Aussie products although I am not sure what the scent actually is. The consistency is quite thick which is a plus point for me because I like a conditioner which doesn't drip. It is a light blue colour, I have found that you don't need to use that much even on my hair which is long, thick and with dry ends. This is definitely a good thing as the size of the bottle is pretty small compared to a lot of other brands (250ml although it may be available in a larger size) The conditioner is easier to spread than some other Aussie conditioners I have tried which means that you don't have to keep adding more to your hair.
While this conditioner felt very slippery and smooth when I applied it in the shower, I was a bit disappointed by the moisturising results, it is great for getting rid of frizz and smoothing the hair but my hair didn't feel very moisturised, the ends still felt a bit dry. Also it didn't detangle as well as a lot of other conditioners. I was glad that it didn't weigh my hair down but still smoothed it and prevented frizz which can be so hard to find in a conditioner! My hair felt very, very soft and smooth after using this, I was impressed, it also had a lovely shine.
All in all I would recommend Aussie Luscious Long Conditioner but if you have dry or damaged hair it may not be for you, I still use this but I do top up the ends of my hair with another conditioner because this just doesn't provide enough moisture to my dry ends. I adore the softness and the shine it gives my hair without weighing it down.
I purchased it in a 3 for £10 offer but I don't think I would be willing to pay more than that, I think that is a fair price for what you get. The slighty smaller bottle size means I do use it a little bit more sparingly than some other conditioners.
Following on from the Shampoo that I have just reviewed, it is the turn of the matching Conditioner. I like to try and use both products at the same time (well not at the same time but sure you know what I mean). but since I go through Shampoo a lot quicker than Conditioner then sometimes I have a mix and match set. It all does the same job anyway and to be honest I don't feel that using both the same products really makes all that difference.
This comes in a 200ml bottle and the last time I bought this in Asda which was about 4 months ago it cost me around £3.60 I think. Asda is pretty good with their Haircare range thesedays and the prices seem to be that bit less than my local branch of Boots for the same product. Any saving is good in my eyes anyway.
This looks like the bottle. Perhaps not the most exciting bottle but it's what's inside that counts. This has the usual flip top lid which is easy enough to open even with wet hands.
This is a good thickness Cream. A little blob of this goes a long way. I have long thick Hair and even a blob the size of a 10p gives me a good coverage.
This has a nice scent to it. It has a hint of the usual Bubblegum kind of scent that Aussie products have, but it is mostly a nice Creamy kind of scent. Not overly strong smelling, and when this is rinsed out then you still get a hint of the scent which I can smell for a good while afterwards and the next day as well when I swish my Hair around.
Once my Hair has been dried and Straightened I can see that this looks nice and Shiny. It feels soft and is pretty smooth as well even before Straightening.
All in all this is another good product from a great Haircare range. The price is alright for this and a bottle looks to last me a good while. Although this is marketed for long hair, you can use it for any lenght and this is suitable for all Hair types.
If you've got a bit cash to splash then have a go of this. It will make your Hair look and feel nice.
I have used Aussie products on and off since the 90s when they were first introduced to the UK and will only purchase them when on offer (Normally retails at £3.50 for 250mL) . My hair is long, fine, wavy and dry which is a nightmare combination as finding a conditioner which is moisturising but not too heavy tends to be difficult. After seeing adverts last year for Aussie Luscious Long I thought this might be my holy grail conditioner but unfortunately this was not the case.
The conditioner comes in a white plastic container with a purple clip lid which can be unscrewed which is really helpful when you get to the end of the bottle. The Conditioner is supposed to contain Aussie's Australian Blue Mountain Blend which consists of two different types of Eucalyptus extract and is supposed to smooth and soften without overloading the hair. The conditioner is a slightly runny cream and is a beautiful shade of baby blue and smells heavenly. The scent is hard to describe it does admittedly have a faint scent of Eucalyptus but it also smells of peach and pear in my opinion and is quite refreshing.
So after washing my hair with my regular Shampoo I squeezed the moisture out and applied about 10p worth of the cream to my ends and the lower half of the length as my roots get greasy quite quickly. The conditioner did a superb job of untangling my lengths and did leave it feeling smoother and would be brilliant for people with thick heavy long hair. Unfortunately it was too heavy for me and left it lank and my hair became greasy much much quicker than usual so I only tend to use it as an intensive conditioner after I colour my hair.
I personally wouldn't buy this conditioner again and would only recommend this conditioner for people with thick dry hair. This conditioner really isn't a great idea for folks with very long hair as you will have to wash your hair more often which often leads to more split ends.
I was buying the aussie luscious long leave-in conditioner in boots and realised that it was 3 for 2 on the aussie range. The leave in conditioner had worked wonders on my dry, over-fried, over-dyed hair so I decided that seeing as they were on offer I may as well try out the shampoo and conditioner too. Usually the conditioner is £3.59 from Boots and £3.45 from Superdrug, which I think is a really good price for a decent conditioner. For this price you get a 250ml bottle. The shampoo is 300ml, which I guess is because you always use more shampoo than conditioner.
The bottle is quite plain looking - white with a cream and purple label on the front. However, one thing I like about the Aussie range is the comical, informal writing style on the bottle. The directions are vague, simply telling you to start with the Aussie luscious long shampoo then move onto the conditioner and rinse out with warm water. But I guess no one really needs instructions on how to use a conditioner. The conditioner is think and just a little bit goes a long way, meaning the bottle should last me a while. The conditioner smells great; it has a sweet, fruity scent that lingers for a few hours.
The conditioner left my hair feeling silky and soft, and looking really shiny and smooth, even after just the first use. It is, however, important to note that I use the Aussie luscious long shampoo and leave in conditioner too, so it is possible that the conditioner is making no difference. However, the condition of my hair has definitely improved since I started using the shampoo and conditioner as well as the leave in conditioner. I would definitely recommend this conditioner to anyone and i'll definitely be buying it again!
Having long hair means that I every time I wash my hair I use conditioner, there's no way I can manage without it. At the moment the conditioner I'm using is Aussie Luscious Long Conditioner.
Aussie Luscious Long Conditioner comes in a white bottle with cream and purple stickers and if the name doesn't make it obvious, its a conditioner designed for those of us with long hair. The lid for this conditioner is on the top of the bottle, this is something I find annoying when it comes to products you use in the shower as you end up with lots of products delicately balanced on their lids trying to get the last of the product out of the bottom! It can be bought in most places such as Tesco, Boots, etc. It costs around £3.50 but through the various different shops that sell it you can regularly find it on offer on two for £6.00. This isn't exactly the cheapest conditioner out there, especially when you consider the fact that the bottle is only 250ml. However, the Aussie name is usually a good one and so although it is slightly expensive this can be over looked when its on offer.
On using the conditioner the first thing you notice is the smell. I think the smell is one most people will like but its hard to pin point exactly what the smell is! For me its a mixture of hairdressers, bubblegum and flowers, which sounds very strange but I think it does smell nice! The smell is probably linked to the eucalyptus extract that is in the conditioner but I couldn't confirm that as I'm not entirely sure what eucalyptus is meant to smell of! Obviously the amount of conditioner you use will depend on the amount of hair you have but I find that a little goes a long way. When I apply the product to my hair I try to avoid putting too much on the roots of my hair as due to the fact that the conditioner is for long hair I presume it will be ultra nourishing which could end up leaving them looking greasy.
I have had two different experiences with this conditioner as a couple of weeks ago I had a haircut. Before I had the hair cut my hair hadn't been cut for a long time (at least six months as I couldn't afford it) and my hair was roughly half way down my back. I figured using a long hair conditioner would dramatically help my tired looking hair and it really did. The conditioner helped my dry ends and turned my mane in to something a lot more manageable. All in all I was really impressed with how the conditioner worked.
However, after getting my hair cut I've had a completely different experience. My hair is now just past my shoulders and I would still consider my hair to be 'long'. However, even though my hair is still quite dry (thanks to the hairdresser who hi lighted my hair and bleached it blonde!) I find that even a small amount of this conditioner is too much. My hair feels greasy quickly but at the same time it doesn't help battle my frizz. Yes my hair smells and feels nice but its not enough when I cant let my hair dry natural and wavy anymore, meaning I'm damaging it even further by constantly using my straighteners.
My biggest annoyance with this conditioner is the fact that the bottle is only 250ml. If you buy the matching shampoo then that's in a 300ml bottle. Why?!? This really annoys me because I think for most people it would be fair to say even when your shampoo and conditioner bottles are the same size you always run out of conditioner first, meaning you end up with lots of half empty shampoo bottles that you need to match up with a new conditioner (and I don't know if its me but I find not all different shampoos and conditioners work well together). Why would I want a smaller bottle of conditioner? It really makes no sense!
Its difficult to say if I would recommend this. I usually love Aussie products and I found that this worked well before I had my hair cut. However, now I find that its too much for my hair and doesn't do anything good for it anymore. Therefore, if you have long hair I would only recommend this if your hair is past needing a cut.
This Aussie Luscious Long Conditioner was part of the multi buy offer I picked up recently. I normally opt for cheaper options for my hair care products than the the Aussie products but my hair has been feeling particularly straggly and dry recently. I've been really rubbish about getting it chopped recently - mainly because I'm pregnant and I really don't want to make any irrational hormonal decisions which I'll end up regretting. As a result it has got way too long and is not in it's best condition.
As I said I normally try and save the pennies when it comes to shampoos and conditioners, I tend to buy and try whatever is on special offer at the time. In this instance however I actually planned to pick up some products from the Aussie range. I had used the range in the past and had always been really impressed with the results that they produced. The just made my hair feel and look healthier and that was deifinately what I needed right now.
I popped into my local branch of Superdrug and the distinctive Aussie logo and bottles stood out on the shelves. I was chuffed to see that they were on an offer of 2 bottles from the range for £6. It was not a huge saving but hey every penny counts. I believe a single bottle normally costs approx £3.46.
I selected products from the Long range for obvious reasons and was hoping the promises on the bottle would be true and my hair would be left smoothed and softened - here's hoping anyway.
Next time I washed my hair I used the new products and after using the shampoo I moved on to the conditioner. I ensure all the shampoo was washed out and then attempted to remove some of the excess water from my hair. I then added a blob of conditioner to my hair and proceed to try and ensure all my locks had a good covering. To assist me with this, I used a wide tooth plastic comb to comb the product through.
The standout thing for me during this process was the gorgeous divine smell of the conditioner. It has a heavenly aroma and I think the smell of the Aussie products really is second to none. It has none of the chemically smells unlike other ranges I have used and instead leaves your hair smelling clean and delicious.
After I had washed all the conditioner from my hair, it already felt softer and silkier, even though it was soaked through. I was feeling optimistic that my hair was going to look and feel in better condition. I used my hairdrier to give it a quick dry through although with minimum styling as I was short of time.
It did work.... my knotty dull and straggly hair looked and felt soooo much better that it had done previously. I was left feeling much better about my locks and although I still need a hair cut I feel I can hold my head high until I get to the salon.
The Aussie brand is well known for being quite pricey but good quality (at least this is what I have been told). After purchasing some for a holiday treat, I am hooked! Generally I would walk straight pas that Aussie section in favour of the cheaper Herbal Essences (works out at at a pound, cheaper for the same amount - £0.84 for 100ml, Boots as of publishing date, compared to the Aussie £1.40 for 100ml, Boots as of publishing date). So is it worth the money?
Housed in a tall, slim, white bottle (like most Aussie products), the conditioner, with the Aussie hair care range, stands out on the shelf. It is the little details which make me realise why Aussie can claim that little bit more. These include the kangaroos jumping around the neck, pushed out of the plastic, the rich colours used on the printed on label and the unique language used on the back. I really like the way the description manages to convey a feeling of style whilst not being too pompous - definately Australian.
The conditioner claims to transform your hair 'into a soft, luscious, swingy curtain of gorgeousness' and help banish those fickle flyaways. Which girl (or even guy) wouldn't want a soft curtain of hair caressing their cheek? However I was quite sure that the conditioner (and the shampoo which I also purchased, see corresponding review) would let me down in some way; with talk like that, my hopes were surely set up for a fall - weren't they?
Once I opened the bottle, and smelt the gorgeous concoction inside, I couldn't wait to put it in my hair and smell it for the rest of the day. The conditioner has a smooth and sweet smell like a posh, refined bubblegum (does such a thing exist?). However, I have found that it would linger for much longer than that, though this time probably increases the more you apply (I use sparingly as the I have got the luxury to purchase a new bottle every two weeks, worst luck!).
When the time came to apply it to my hair, I was actually quite excited (sad, I know) and couldn't wait to see if any of the promises become a reality. The product has a lid which requires you to push one side down which in turn reveals a small hole on the raised other side. When squeezed the conidtioner comes out easily and is a creamy, baby blue with pearly streaks. After using Aussie Luscious Long Shampoo, I squeezed a small amount of this conditioner (about the size of a grape) and massaged it into my hair. Now my hair is just below shoulder length and it covered it easily.
When it came to washing it out, it came out easily and left my hair feeling really nourished and soft - very good so far. I would recommend leaving it in for a minute or so as this does seem help. Also, try applying from the top of your hair and working down; doing the same when washing out helps all your hair to be covered.
Finally: drying. After towel drying slightly, which usually leaves my hair in a tangly mess, I was able to run a brush through with unexpected ease. After drying my hair felt immensly soft and light and very well conditioned. My blonde highlights did also seem to be enhanced and my hair just seemed generally in very good quality.
Overall I would definately recommend this conditioner and it works very well on long hair. It left my hair feeling as if I had just walked out of a salon, and stayed like that for the whole day. Definately look out for deals to save money - it is a shame that the conditioner, though 50ml less, is the same price as the shampoo.
A few years ago I was using Aussie shampoo range on a regular basis, and it wasn't until a couple of months ago when I was browsing in Boots that I decided to buy myself some more.
I have always been a fan of the smell from the shampoo and conditioner and was pleased to re introduce myself to the familiar sweet fragrance that is the Aussie range.
I bought the luscious long conditioner because my hair has grown fairly long over the last few months and I have let it stay that way. Sometimes I think the manufacturers just invent the names for the products to entice customers to buy them and they all contain the same basic ingredients, but the marketing ploy works when you think your hair will look luscious if it's long with this product.
Aussie packages their products in very similar packaging. The conditioner is in a dense creamy bottle with a flip down lid. I always find these lids to be more difficult to open in the shower with wet hands, but despite the tiny area to press your finger into to release the lid, it is a fairly easy process.
The bottle itself is also very flexible which makes it easier for squeezing the contents out, and especially when you near the end of the bottle, trying to get the last remains out.
Pouring the contents into my hand, the shampoo comes out in quite a thick consistency and a bright turquoise colour. It's a lovely colour to see as a conditioner, and I was instantly pleased when I realised this as it's one of my favourite colours. I realise that is a very sad reason for liking a product, basing it on the colour, but I'll take my smiles where I can.
The fragrance from the conditioner is quite strong and stays with you as you leave it on your hair as a fragrance that over powers any other products you may have used.
Washing out is easy and my hair feels soft and smooth after using this conditioner. I just know at this point that I'll be sniffing my hair for hours to come.
The conditioner is actually designed to improve any frizzy ness and to improve and maintain the condition of the hair.
I have never found a product yet that will make my hair look in a better condition than it's in already, but I will say for this one that is has tamed down some of the frizz and fly away feel that I get from using other conditioners.
The thing I love more than anything about this conditioner is the smell, and I can still get a hint of the fragrance a day or so later when I come to wash my hair again.
The only downfall I can fin with this conditioner and the Aussie range in general if I'm honest is that the products tend to encourage my hair to become greasy quicker than other brands I use. Due to this I tend to get Aussie out for a couple of washes and then change to another brand for a while, so Aussie is my treat conditioner for the smell.
My 250ml bottle cost £3.42 which isn't a bad price for what you get and how long it'll last you.
I have heard quite a lot of good things about Aussie Shampoos and Conditioners and have had it recommended by a few friends and therefore I decided to try this out when I saw it on offer in Boots.
The offer was for two for 6 pounds where as the products are normally around 4 pounds something each. I decided to go for a shampoo and conditioner and the two usually work best together. There were lots of choices of types of Shampoo and Conditioner but I decided to go for the luscious long variety as I have long hair and my main problem is keeping it strong and not breaking. I therefore thought this would be the best choice for me.
The bottle is fairly small and is white in colour with a dark purple lid, which is also the dispenser. It holds 250 ml worth of liquid so is fairly small for the amount you are paying. The front label has the Aussie logo on it and then the type of conditioner it is.- 'luscious long' and then says 'for hair long enough to swish'. Underneath this is explains how it uses an Australian Blue Mountain Blend to turn your hair soft, luscious and swingy. This all sounds quite promising. It also has in purple writing at the bottom 'silky smoothness' written so you can tell this is what the conditioner is saying it will do.
On the back is the Aussie Philosophy 'There's more than life to hair but it's a good place to start'. It then goes into detail about the blend they use for the conditioner and where they got the ingredients. Underneath this are directions on how to use the conditioner. These are pretty standard and as usual they suggest the shampoo that goes with the conditioner to be used first. They just say to use the conditioner and then rinse it off with warm water. Ingredients are then listed and also contact information for the company.
Moving on to using the product. It is easy to get the product out using the dispenser at the top. You simply push the top down and then squirt the product out into your hand. The product comes out in a fairly runny consistency and is blue in colour, which is a bit different. Once I had the conditioner in my hand I worked it into my hair. It didn't lather loads but was easy to put into my hair. It also had quite a nice sweet smell to it, which was nice.
I usually leave my conditioner a couple of minutes before rinsing, which I did. I then rinsed it off. It didn't feel quite as soft and sleek and it has done with other conditioners but it was fairly easy to wash out. I then dried my hair with a hairdryer like normal.
I found my hair to look fairly good after but I didn't feel that it had a significant impact on it. It was manageable and it was fairly smooth like it promised but after all the rave reviews I was expecting it to do something special. It didn't seem to do this. I obviously cannot comment on whether my hair is now stronger or in better condition, as only time will tell. I think that it is a good conditioner and does the job well but I think you can get cheaper ones that do it just as well.
