Review: Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose Moisurizing Conditioner


Promises: The sweet smell of success for hair. Trade those dry, thirsty tresses for vibrant, touchably soft hair with this moisture-intensive conditioner enriched with restorative herbal emoillents. Detangles and rehydrates to overcome dryness and leave hair ultra-silky and irresistibly fragrant.

Also recommended for bleached or highlighted hair. 

Directions: Shake well before using. After shampooing, apply to damp hair and work through, concentrating on the ends. Leave on for 1-2 minutes, then rinse. For deep conditioning: Apply to dry hair and distribute from the scalp to ends. Leave on for 15 minutes, then shampoo and condition hair as usual. 

Ingredients: Aqua, cetyl alcohol, alcohol denat. (38b, lavender*), butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, lonicera caprifolium (honeysuckle) extract, aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf juice*, glycerin, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, rosa rubignosa (Rosa Mosqueta®) seed oil*, citrus grandis (grapefruit) extract, tocopheryl acetate, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) fruit extract, humulus lupulus (hops) extract, melissa officinalis (balm mint) leaf extract, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil, daucus carota sativa (carrot) root extract, beta-carotene, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, angelica archangelica extract, chrysanthemum sinense flower extract, magnolia biondii flower extract, ascorbic acid. *Organic

Verdict
This is a product that I purchased after hearing so many good reviews. I like it but I do not love it!! This is good conditioner, there's no denying that. It leaves my hair soft without a doubt. It has amazing ingredients, which believe me you're definitely paying for. However, it does have some short comings. This conditioner does not have slip!!! It does not glide through the hair at all, you have to ensure that your hair is detangled before application. The smell is clinical, simply put it smells like Dettol. I don't know what honey suckle rose is supposed to smell like but I can bet my bottom dollar this is not it... On the plus side the smell does not linger once your hair is dry. Aubrey Honey Suckle Rose retails for £10.49 for 11 fl Oz from but not exclusively the Aubrey website. This is a reasonable price for a product with predominantly organic ingredients. Will I purchase again? Not unless it is on offer. TRESemm√© Naturals Vibrantly Smooth Conditioner does a better job at moisturising my tresses and has amazing slip, not to add costs half of the price for 5x the amount. 

Have you tried this conditioner? What is your verdict?

  3. I have used this product but I use it on dry hair and I add some olive oil & aloe vera. This is an excellent pre-poo treatment and gives me an opportunity to detangle my transitioning locks prior to washing.

    1. I'm glad it has worked for you. My fav prepoo treatment is EVOO and honey. Thanks for stopping by, all the best with your transition. :)
