One of the products from last month’s LF Beauty Box was the Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo. When I found out it was free of silicones I was extremely excited to give it a try. Today I’m finally going to tell you guys what I think of it, if it’s any good and if it’s worth the pretty high price you have to pay for it. If you’re interested in finding all of that out, make sure you continue reading!
The Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo comes in a small plastic bottle with a white lid and a white label wrapped around it. I’m not completely sure whether or not the full size comes in the same packaging, but the little travel size I got does. The packaging is very simple but looks really professional. I really like the font they used.
This Purifying Shampoo claims to contain jujube bark extract and should be perfect to you for you daily rebalancing and soothing hair care. It says that it’s made for greasy roots and dry ends and that it’s free of silicones, paraben and SLS. All of those things make it sound like the perfect shampoo for me, but is it?
My first experience with this shampoo was quite positive, but not entirely positive. The scent of the product is really nice. It smells quite manly but not in a bad way. It has that muscular scent to it (if that makes any sense) that make men smell attractive and it also has a bit of professional hairdresser scent to it. I like it!
The product itself works really nice as well. It’s a nice product to work with. It’s not too foamy because there isn’t any SLS in there but it is foamy enough to get that clean feeling.
The only thing I just didn’t like about it is that it didn’t prevent my hair from getting greasy within only a few hours. It felt like there was still a layer of grease on top of my hair and it felt like it desperately needed to be washed even though I washed it only a few hours ago.
However, my hair was nice and shiny, soft and in a great condition. It wasn’t a drying shampoo at all and it didn’t felt like it was stripping the hair either. Really the only negative part was the greasy film it left on my hair.
Even though I don’t consider this a bad shampoo I don’t think I’m going to use it again. I just really don’t want my hair to be greasy and even though this shampoo has some great benefits to it, it’s not worth having greasy hair for me. If you have hair that doesn’t get greasy as quickly it might be a great product for you and in that case it will totally be worth the price, but for me it’s not a big hit.
The Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo is available at lookfantastic for €28,- (250 ml).
And that was it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which shampoo is your current favourite!
