This product came out a few Avon books ago and I bought it as soon as it came into the book. I like to try new products and I remember there was a product like this in Avon around a year ago (probably longer than that knowning me) which was pretty good for my hair. This came at a special offer price as well of £1.25 instead of the usual cost of £2.50 so I thought for that price then it was worth a try.
This comes in a 125ml tub. The tub isn't that tall and quite wide but this means that you can scoop this product out easily enough. The tub doesn't look all that fancy and quite cheap I would say but it is a cheap costing product anyway isn't it?
When you open the tub you are hit by a lovely scent. You can smell a Berry scent but I can't say what the scent of Acai smells like. There is a sort of Richer creamier scent through this which I am going to guess is the Shea Oil.
This is quite a thick product so just scoop some of this out, apply to your Hair, leave on for a few minutes and then rinse off. This rinses out easily enough and even when I was running the Water through my Hair and running my hands through my Hair to get rid of this product my Hair was feeling soft and a kind of wet glossy feel to it.
This product is suitable for all Hair types and is meant to add shine to your Hair and provide moisture. How did I find this to work? I found it to be alright. I can't say that I notice that there is a lot more shine or Moisture after using this to be honest. The good thing from this is that the scent of this lingers a bit and I do like the fresh scent of this.
A good enough product. I have used about half this tub and I will finish this tub but I can't see myself buying this again as there is lots of other Haircare products that I think work better than this. A good enough buy for the money though.
I've always taken considerable pride in my thick and curly hair, which reaches just below my shoulders. However, due to its constant exposure to heated appliances, styling products and hair dyes I find that it often becomes dry, particularly on the ends. Whilst I regularly use appropriate conditioners for my hair type following every hair wash, I will use a more intensive product on a weekly basis, which is generally on a Sunday when I enjoy my pampering hour of "me time". I've been using Dove intensive conditioners for the past twelve months or so and decided that I needed a change, so I opted for one belonging to the Avon Naturals range named Superfruit Soufflé Hair Masque and this review discusses my experience with using it.
I must admit that I don't generally tend to purchase Avon products, as I've had so many disappointments over the years due to their inferior quality, which has resulted in me wasting a small fortune of my hard earned cash. However, when browsing through one of the many brochures that are frequently left on my desk at work I was taken by both the appearance and promotional literature in relation to this masque, so my purchase was made. We are provided with 125 ml of product, which is contained within a rather eye catching lilac coloured sturdy plastic tub and on removing the easy to open screw top lid I was greeted with the most stunning and refreshing aroma of acia berry, which was almost good enough to eat.
The appearance of the fairly thick consistency pale lilac masque was extremely inviting and was identical to black cherry yoghurt minus the small pieces of fruit. As directed, I scooped out a small amount of the girlie coloured substance, which offered a wonderfully creamy texture and I found it was easy to spread and evenly distribute over my hair. However, the very favourable fresh and fruity aroma seemed to have vanished into nowhere whilst I waited the recommended five minutes before attempting to rinse away.
The masque was easily removed with warm water without leaving any traces of sticky or greasy residue, but I was disappointed that there was no scent lingering on my hair. Whilst the texture of my hair was not weighed down and offered a fairly soft and smooth texture, it was nowhere near what I had expected from a product containing shea oil and I felt that I'd used a bog standard conditioner as opposed to a hair masque. My experience with using Dove products has always been extremely positive where the ends of my hair are velvety smooth to the touch. However, Avon's Superfruit Soufflé Hair Masque failed miserably in meeting these quality standards and whilst I would describe the results as acceptable, I cannot admit to being overly impressed.
The 125 ml tube of masque was sufficient for five applications and unlike a tube, which I have to cut in half as it nears the end, I was able to use every last dollop. The masque should be used within 12 months of opening with the tub being recycle once empty. There is a long list of ingredients provided on a label on the underside of the tub and for obvious reasons I do not intend copying them into my review. However, I would advise that I suffered no adverse reactions when using. In addition to my general disappointment with Avon products, I find their continuous fluctuating prices somewhat frustrating. I believe I paid just over a £1 for my tub of Hair Masque and at the time of writing you can make a purchase for £2 with its normal price being £2.50.
For the reasons discussed above, I feel a rating of 2 stars is appropriate.
