Product Description:

Intense penetration and repair all the way to the ends of damaged hair. With hair repair ingredient that zooms in on damage.

  • Formulated with Pearl Livid (Pearl Protein, Lysine Derivative), for beautiful deep layer shine
  • With the aroma of Tsubaki Ryokuka
  • Formulated with Tsubaki Amino, a penetrating repair ingredient

Texture & Scent:

This hair mask has a creamy consistency, so it spreads easily unto your hair. It rinses out clean too :)

This has a lovely fresh scent that i like.


This hair mask comes in a plastic tub with a screw off lid. As I have mentioned before, I have a love-hate relationship with stuff that comes in a tub. On one hand you can easily dig up every morsel of product left in there, on the other, it's quite a pain to use in a tiny shower like mine :(

This is how it looks like brand new and sealed:

Open sesame - this is the amount you get with each tub:

Price & Availability:
This hair mask is priced at RM41.90 each, which I consider to be a little on the pricier side for drugstore standards. You can pick up a tub from Watsons or Jusco. Girls in the US can get this off for $22.95.

My $0.02:

I'd figure that it's about time I review this hairmask - I'm almost done with this tub! :P

When I first started using this, I didn't quite like it and immediately missed my Loreal Absolut Repair Hair Masque already. I thought it didn't condition as well as the aforementioned one, yet made my hair greasy. However, because I'm stingy persistent, I continued using it, albeit sparingly. And guess what? My hair actually likes this alot now! :D

Hair profile: waist long and abit dry at the ends. Condition has improved tremendously with the Loreal Absolut Repair Hair Masque, but still needs a hair mask daily to maintain this condition.

It took me awhile to figure out the exact amount of product needed to not grease up my scalp, yet still enough to keep my locks soft and manageable. Once i got that figured out, it really performed beautifully for me! :D

At over forty bucks per tub, it can be considered a little expensive for drugstore standards, but hey, it works for me (and is ten bucks cheaper than the Loreal one. Yay for an extra McDonalds meal! :P). I'll definitely repurchase! :)

Have you tried this hair mask before? :D


  1. I tried this before it was good!!! XD Used their shampoos too but shampoo sting my eyes :( badly :( Try Soap & Glory if you can. Yummeh scent!! :)

  2. Aww i'm sorry to hear that! But its great that the hair mask works for you! :D

    I've been hearing about Soap and Glory so often nowdays! I'll check them out when i'm in bkk or kl next! I don't have them locally! :(

  3. I have yet to try Tsubaki due to the mixed reviews.. Some say it's awesome while others say it's too greasy. Guess I'll just have to try it to find out which

  4. Yeah I guess so too! Haha! Hope it works for you! :D

  5. thanks for this review Jenn! it's something for me to consider :) maybe i can get this for cheaper during the watsons sales ;)

  6. Most welcome! :D Ohhh, i can't wait for the sale too - i'm almost done with my tub! :)

  7. Ray Banのパッチモン、心斎橋の雑貨屋で見つけた!商店街の中にあって、アクセサリーとかを主に扱っているみせで、レイバン モデル何個かがあった。レイバン ウェイファーラーのあの人気モデル、RB2140も1000円ぐらいで売れている。
