aussie moist conditioner
water, stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, glutamic acid, fragrance, BIS aminopropyl simethicone, benzyl alcohol, EDTA, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, ecklonia radiata extract (australian sea kelp), simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, aloe barbadensis leaf juice.

yet another conditioner that was bought on a whim during a run to the store. again, because of rave reviews on lhcf. i didn't get the 3 minute deep conditioner just because i didn't think i'd need it just yet, so i was fine with just this. i don't remember the price tag, but it wasn't more than four dollars, which isn't bad for 13.5 oz. now, onto the review.

first off, i am really liking the bottle - it's one of the prettiest i've seen. the bottle is the most deep, jewel purple you've ever seen. the color is far from flat and really makes the product seem like you've got something good in your hands. the cap is an iridescent pearl, very pretty, although a little stiff to pop open and close. at first, the light blue lettering put me off - it was too flat compared to the other colors, but i quickly got used to it. it's a pale, frosty blue and really stands out from the deep purple. the shape of the bottle itself, is standard with an elegant little twist (literally). the perfect size for holding and squeezing.

i'm horrible at describing scents, but this conditioner is definitely one of those strong perfume-y types. it's got this weird undertone to it that screams "potent" to me - like the ingredients are really strong; reminds me of my salon days with the gallon tubs. ahh...i wouldn't say tropical, i wouldn't say citrus, or sweet, or even musky. just... perfume and potency. idk. it is boyfriend approved, however. the scent isn't as strong once it's out of the bottle, thank goodness, and becomes a lot more bearable. not that the scent is bad, at all, just strong. if you like your scents to linger, this is definitely a good condish to use.

the formula is just thick enough, making this conditioner seem like even more of a luxury, keeping in theme with the aesthetic of the bottle. i remember first using it, the slip was ridiculous. hands down, this beats all my other conditioners in that department. as for performance, it fits right in with the rest of my conditioners - clean, soft hair. i'll have to update this next time i use it and rinse it out - just to give a more thorough review. right now, however, i am trying it out as a leave-in and will come back and update tonight once my hair has fully dried. :)

would i repurchase? in a word, yes. i feel like this could become one of my staples, but i move through different conditioners often, so we will see.
