L’ORÉAL Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner Review

Since I’ve been on hiatus I came across some uh-mazing products and this one definitely falls under the category and then some!

L’ORÉAL Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner skips the step of shampoo by giving you a low lather conditioner that cleanses without stripping your hair, and moisturizes like a deep conditioner. Let me just say, I’ve purchased so many shampoo and conditioners from drugstore brands to high end salon brands and have always had the same results; frizzy, dry hair. The only way I walked out of the shower with soft and manageable hair was if I used a ridiculous amount of conditioner, and even then my hair still had the consistency of straw.

When I came across this product the cynic in me rolled her eyes, but being a glutton for punishment (of my wallet hehe) I decided to give it a try. Hallelujah! The savior to my hair had arrived! Not only was my hair super soft, it only cost me $6! I can shelve all my failed purchases thanks to this miracle in a bottle :)

Although this product has saved my hair, there were a couple of drawbacks (nothing to keep me from purchasing this in the future). My one gripe is…the pump. I will admit you really don’t need a lot of product to get a your hair saturated, but you do have to work that pump just to get a decent amount out. Maybe a traditional pop open top would be better for this bottle.

Here’s the rundown…

Product

10/10 This product literally saved my hair! Not only that, I skipped a step in the shower so I’m saving time as well :). This conditioner also has a very strong vanilla-y fragrance that I love and lingers till the next wash.

Packaging

7.5/10 The pump sucks! I’ll still be stocking up on this stuff but I will be optimistic and hope they get rid of this pump :). It takes atleast ten pumps just to get a quarter size amount!

Price

10/10 At $6 a bottle you can’t beat the price! Considering the hundreds, maybe even thousands spent on shampoos and conditioners that just end up getting tossed I am very very very pleased with the price :).

Like I said I love this one step hair system! It has made my hectic schedule just a little less hectic, and has completely saved my hair. If you have the same issue with your hair as me (long, fine, frizzy, straight hair) give this a whirl :).

Happy Hump Day Nerds!

The Makeup Nerd’s Verdict

My Shade (N3 Natural Buff)

I really like this foundation! It’s my first L’ORÉAL foundation purchase ever so I’m highly impressed by how much it reminds me of higher end brands.

Product

9/10
This foundation gave me a subtle but very nice glow with a dewy finish without adding any unnecessary glitter or shimmer, making this a great choice for everyday wear. Added with a broad spectrum SPF 20 this is also great for daytime wear to any celebration, get together, or cookout. My only gripe is unless you use a finishing powder after this it will not last all day.

Package

10/10
The bottle itself is made of glass making it very high quality. I love that it has a sturdy plastic pump (great for all my fellow germaphobes!) so I don’t feel gross every time I use it and it delivers enough product each time :).

Availability

10/10
This is where this drugstore foundation really takes the cake! It’s available in 15 shades ranging from neutrals to warms to cools.

Price

7.5/10
I shouldn’t care for the cost of this wonderful product! However, for a drugstore brand it is a bit pricey in my opinion at $12.99 a bottle. The plus side though, you really don’t need a lot of product to get great coverage.

Overall I’d probably buy this foundation again…with a coupon lol.

Have you tried this foundation, if so what was your opinion of it? Leave a comment!
