L’Oreal EverPure Hair Care System

This month, I was super excited to receive my first VoxBox from Influenster! It’s a L’Oreal Paris box full of EverPure Color Care System hair care products, and I was eager to try them out on my sun-fried hair.

I recently got back from an 11-day trip to Bali, Indonesia. Yes, it was amazing. And yes, I got a lot of sun. Great for my pale PNW skin, but bad for my already frizzy dry hair. Luckily, my box from Influenster and L’Oreal was waiting for me when I got back home!

There were four full-sized products in the box. The first products I tried were the Repair & Defend shampoo and the Repair Remedy mask, which is a deep conditioning hair treatment that you wash out. The thing I love about these products is that they’re sulfate-free. While sulfate-free shampoos often fail to create suds, this one lathered up nice and thick. I was pleasantly surprised!

The shining star of this box was the Repair Remedy Mask. After I shampooed, I skipped the conditioner and just applied this hair mask. After letting it sit in my hair for about 4 minutes, I rinsed it out. I didn’t feel its effects right away, but once my hair dried…wow! My normally frizzy, stiff hair was soft and shiny. And that’s not an exaggeration. As someone who has had a lifelong struggle with frizzy, hard to manage, coarse hair, I really found this mask to be moisturizing for my locks.

I also received a normal EverPure Repair & Defend conditioner as well as a Repair & Defend Lotion (essentially a leave-in conditioner). The downside of the shampoo and conditioner is that I really dislike the smell. The packaging says “gogi” and “acai” and I had high hopes that the products would smell fruity. Instead, they smell like a strong floral perfume. Because of the scent’s staying power, and my dislike of the scent, I probably won’t be repurchasing those two products.

However, if you have color-treated hair and are looking for good sulfate-free products, I would definitely recommend giving these products a try. I will probably repurchase the hair mask (my hair slurped up all that conditioning and thanked me for it!).

I don’t have color-treated hair, so it doesn’t make much of a difference to me. But I love that these L’Oreal EverPure products are 100%:

  • Sulfate-free
  • Free of harsh salts
  • Free of parabens
  • Vegan

I just wish they were free of its scent…

To recap:

  • Love that these L’Oreal EverPure Color Care System products are sulfate and paraben free
  • Adore the hair mask; works wonders on my dry, frizzy hair
  • Dislike the scent of the EverPure shampoo and (regular) conditioner, but it has great staying power
  • Lotion is good but overshadowed by my love of the mask
  • Would repurchase: L’Oreal Paris EverPure Repair Recovery Mask only

Drugstore Haul

When I go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription and my friend asks me to check for something in the cosmetics section… 

 
It was supposed to be an in-and-out trip!!!
However, I was in need of new concealer and I found the new Wet n Wild Photofocus Setting Spray for only $4.99. Can’t beat that!

(The Maybelline Master Prime Blur + Redness Control was $9.49 and the L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Concealer in warm Light/Medium was $10.49.)
