Review: L'Oreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner
If you’ve read any of my posts about hair in the last 2 years, you probably know I don’t do sulfates. My hair + sulfates= utterly craptastic hair days. I’d been seeing the new L’Oreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner all over the place; drugstores, supermarkets, blogs, message boards, etc. I passed it on many of my excursions, I kept telling myself, You don’t need it, you have enough hair stuff. You’ve run out of room, use other stuff up before you buy anything. Of course, being the product junkie that I am, I caved and bought it.
Upon using Evercreme, I promptly went to Target to buy 3 more bottles, while they were on sale. I love, love, love this. Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner is extremely mild, but is definitely more foamy than a plain ole conditioner. It pumps out of the bottle thick and creamy, but once you get it on your hair and rub it, it starts foaming. It left my hair so soft and slippery, I could definitely go without conditioner after this. And the smell, mmmmmmm, I like it A LOT. It’s a stronger scent, although from what I read, not as strong as some of the other L’Oreal products, so it might be too scented for some of you, but for me and my nose, it’s a keeper.
The consistency, as I mentioned, is quite thick, and honestly I feel like I use more than I should, probably 5-8 pumps, but it’s still cheaper than high-end cleansing conditioners ounce for ounce. Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner isn’t quite the all-in-one that Wen is, I wouldn’t use it as a leave-in. It did do a good job getting my hair clean, and was slippery enough to make detangling a breeze.
My only real complaint about Evercreme is the bottle, or more accurately the pump. It really doesn’t pump out very much product, maybe a nickel-sized amount. Maybe it’s to keep you from using too much? I have no idea, and in the grand scheme it’s not a huge deal, but it sort of irritates me.
I wish this came in a larger size as well, 8 ounces doesn't last a girl like me, who cleanses everyday, very long.
Overall, I really like Evercreme, and would definitely repurchase.
If you've tried it, leave me a comment with your thoughts on Evercreme…Love it? Loathe it?
