I remember reading a glow, gushing review of Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo in Lucky magazine this past summer and thinking: I MUST try this stuff.
The Lucky reviewer says: “A true miracle! This shampoo makes my hair – which is wavy and long – perfectly wavy as if styled endlessly by a $700-an-hour stylist, then volumized and texturized as if worked on with numerous styling products (despite no stylist, no blow dryer, no styling products)… My friend – whose hair is straighter and shorter – gets body, volume, and shine. Yet another friend – whose long hair tends to frizz as a result of overprocessing – gets smooth sleekness without flatness… Whatever your wish for your hair, the shampoo grants the wish.”
Like, for realz? But then I read the price: 12 fl oz is $140.00! That’s, um, a little steep. Even though ever Philip B product I have ever tried, I have loved, I am not about to throw down that kind of cash on shampoo unless it’s also changing the oil on my car.
But here’s some good news: Philip B just release a generous 3 fl oz jar of Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo for just $50.00. A little better? At least it makes it a little more realistic to try out “the most luxurious shampoo ever formulated” that’s suppose to gives your hair back its youthful glory and glow in one dose. A concentrated, lipid-packed mix of pure grape seed oil, chamomile, rosemary, shea butter and panthenol (bitamin B5) smoothes and fills flaws in the hair cuticle for a super glossy finish. Of course, the ultraluxe formula is paraben-free and light enough for fine, limp hair.
I’m dying to know–have any of you guys tried Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo? And if so, does it live up to the hype? For more information on Philip B, check out my review of Maui Wowie Beach Mist.
