Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★½
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, and Barneys New York.
Scent: subtle floral notes.
I Like: how well the shampoo nourishes and cleans without stripping away oil.
Not a fan of: the SLS and parfum/fragrance ingredients.

Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo is one of the most nourishing shampoos I’ve used in some time.  The shampoo has a creamy texture that squeezes out cleanly.  The scent is slightly floral with very subtle citrus notes.  Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo is concentrated, so a little goes a long way.  That little amount of shampoo thoroughly cleans without leaving the hair feeling dry and stripped of its natural oil.  If you have dry hair, Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo is a luxurious splurge worth investing in.

Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil Review on Caulfield's Counter

Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Amazon.
Scent: fragrance-free, though the oil does have a faint, naturally occurring nutty smell.
I like: the lightness of the oil.  Absorbs easily.  Versatile – can be used on skin and hair.
Not a fan of: the clear bottle.  Wished it was colored to protect the oil from light.

Asian cultures have incorporated camellia oil into their beauty routines for centuries.  The oil is known to be a light, versatile moisturizer for skin, hair, and scalp.  During a recent trip to Japan, I picked up a bottle of Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil to find out what all the fuss was about.  Though it is commonly marketed as a hair oil, I’ve grown to enjoy using camellia oil on my skin in the morning as an aftershave and at night before going to bed.  Camellia oil is heavier than argan oil, but light enough for people with dry skin to use on the face.  The oil has a very faint, naturally occurring nutty smell that quickly dissipates after application.  Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil comes in a unique, traditional-looking clear glass bottle that dispenses a few drops at a time.

Kiehl’s Amino Acid Conditioner Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: Light coconut.
I Like: the sweet, mellow smell of coconut.  Does a great job at making hair feel soft.  A little goes a long way.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.  Relatively expensive.

Of the many hair conditioners I’ve tried, Kiehl’s Amino Acid Conditioner ranks as one of the better performers when it comes to making hair feel soft.  The first thing I notice when using the product is the wonderful light coconut scent.  The great smell will motivate any dude to condition his dry, brittle locks.  The conditioner’s formula consists of some great nourishing ingredients including oils of jojoba and coconut as well as wheat amino acids.  At $19 for an 8.4 ounce bottle, Kiehl’s Amino Acid Conditioner is on the pricier side.  However, its price tag is somewhat justified as a little amount goes a long way.
