Hey “Jeromites”! 😛
How was your weekend?? Well, mine was half awesome and half horrible 😛 Horrible because my exams are coming up and everything except my book looks interesting! I can’t go out and I can’t stay in 🙁 The only date I can afford to go on is with my books! And awesome because I got a hair cut! 😀 yayyyy 🙂 It’s fun and chic. I’m loving it! 😀 And for all of you wondering if you should go for that appointment at the hairdressers you’ve been postponing for so long, take my advice and go for it!! Go wild, go crazy and go experiment 😛 While your at it, don’t forget to take care of those lovely tresses ladies! This post is going to be about just that; Hair care! Hair care! Hair care!
Today I’m reviewing a product from Rene Furterer Paris marketed by Revlon in India. They have products ranging from dry shampoo to styling gels but what caught my attention was the Rene Furterer Astera Soothing Shampoo with cold essential oils!
Scalp care is the most essential part of a hair care regime but it is always ignored! Hair care for some of us revolves only around split-ends and hair fall. So when I found out that an exclusive scalp care product was coming out, I couldn’t wait to try it! And when I finally did, I fell in love with it! So let’s get down to the review now…
Product Name: Rene Furterer Astera Soothing Shampoo
Product Price: Rs.1320 for 200 ml
Availability: It’s available on Nykaa
What the product claims:
- Feel the instant cooling sensation of this shampoo that gently cleanses and soothes irritated scalps.
- It reduces itching and irritation while providing the scalp a feeling of freshness.
- Vitamin B5 moisturizes to leave hair soft and shiny.
My take on Rene Furturer Astera Soothing Shampoo
Packaging: The tube is in my favourite colour! ♥ I fell in love with it instantly 🙂 It comes in a light mint green tube with a dark green screw cap! The packaging isn’t something you can brag about but it’s travel friendly.
Texture: The product is a translucent gel with slight sheen and the texture is light, a lot less creamier than other shampoos. The fragrance of eucalyptus and mint even as you take it on your palm is quite strong. Some may find it strong but I personally love it 🙂
Results: In the product usage directions, it says that you should apply it twice and leave it on for 3-4 minutes the second time. Since it was my first time, I followed the directions to the D. 😛 What I noticed was that although it spread easily on my scalp, it didn’t actually lather well and since I had long hair I needed a lot of shampoo!!!
But it delivers what it promises. It feels very veryyy refreshing and has a cool menthol effect on your scalp. It actually feels like your scalp is breathing mint. 😀 I forgot to mention this earlier but I have a very oily scalp and with the use of Rene Furterer Astera Soothing Shampoo, that reduced 🙂 On the downside, the cooling effect didn’t last longer and it doesn’t work on dandruff! Plus it made my hair dry n frizzy 🙁 I had to use a serum to control the frizz.
- Smells refreshing and the fragrance lasts for up to 2 days after the wash.
- Has a cooling therapeutic effect
- Helps treat oily scalp
Cons of Rene Furterer Astera Soothing Shampoo:
- Doesn’t lather well
- Made my hair dry n frizzy
- You would require a lot of shampoo depending on the length of your hair!
The Jeromy Diaries Verdict
I found that with the use of a conditioner and serum, my hair was less frizzy and dry. I’d recommend you to follow this up with a good conditioner. 🙂 Also if you have an oily scalp this is your “go to” shampoo ♥ This one is definitely going to be on my hair pamper regime! 🙂
