Product Description

For very dry, frizzy, untamable hair: the new ELSEVE Smooth-Intense Ultra-Rich Leave-in Mask intensely nourishes and smoothes your hair for maximum manageability.

Actual Product Pic:

Texture & Scent:

This rich hair mask is buttery smooth! It spreads unto your hair easily! Scent-wise it has a rather strong perfumy smell which i'm not fond of, but i got used it already.


This mask comes in a screw top pot which i'm ok with, though i wish it came in a squeeze tube for hygenic reasons.

Time Test:
My hair remains smooth for about a day, which is ok! :)

Price & Availability:
At RM27.90, it is rather affordable!! Furthermore it's almost always on discount! YAY! It's available at most Watsons / Guardians / Your local supermarket!

I use this mask everytime i wash my hair! I love that it's a leave-in mask, so no messy gooey mask in the shower (like all the other elseve masks!)! :)

A simple guide on how to use this mask:

Repeat the above steps if nessesary, but don't overapply if not you'll wake up the next day with greasy hair! Also, try not to apply the mask too near to your scalp for the same reasons! Let hair dry naturally if you can, and tada:

Say hello to soft, tame hair! :)

My $0.02:
I got this mask because i think my HG mask, the old Anti Breakage one has been discontinued! This mask is rather fuss free to use! And just a little product goes a long way to keep my hair soft and manageable! I wish these effects would last a little longer like the anti-breakage one though! But still, it's pretty decent! :)

In a Nutshell:

An effective leave-in hairmask that tames my tresses well! :)

Likes: Effective!!, moisturizing, easily available
Gripes: The Scent!
Repurchase: Yes

Rating: ! 4 Stars! A rather good drugstore product! :D

  1. i use this a few tubs!

    honestly it's good! i like :D

    i switch hair mask from this range with tsubaki :D

  2. Yep, it works beautifully, but i still prefer the old Anti-Breakage formula though... went through countless tubs of those! :D

  3. I use the yellow tubs before and they are really worth for their price. Not bad for a drugstore product^^

  4. yeah, i love the yellow tubs too! They're really value for money! I always stock up when i goto Bangkok! hehe! :)

  5. the scent scared me away >.<
    too strong for my liking

  6. yes!! i'm not a fan of the strong perfumy scent as well!! i much prefer the starfruity smell of the Anti Breakage one! hehe! :D
