I've been a bad blogger recently and it's the longest that I've gone without posting in the history of Skin Deep. I blog as a hobby and unfortunately, other areas of my life have had to take priority hence the recent silence.
However, I'm back and felt that it would be fitting to return with a review of the Aveda Smooth Infusion Conditioner, a current favourite.
On first impressions, I was pleased that the packaging was a functional tube, which was clearly identified apart from the accompanying shampoo which is presented in a bottle. As with all Aveda products, the packaging was sleek and minimalist, whilst the mint colour of the tube appealed to me. The tube meant that it was easy to control how much product was dispensed, without any wastage or mess.
The conditioner felt silky to apply, most likely owing to the high concentration of dimethicone within the formula, which I have to admit that I was a little disappointed, albeit not surprised, to note.
It boasts the signature Aveda botanical fragrance blend, which I adore. It took a little more work than other conditioners I've tried to rinse out but not to the extent that it was off putting.
I was initially dubious over how effective Aveda Smooth Infusion Conditioner would be so I was both pleasantly surprised and highly impressed to note that my hair was left noticeably smoother, with considerably less frizz and fewer flyaways than I'd normally experience. It meant that my hair was manageable and I found it quicker & easier to style than usual.
At £19 for 200ml, Aveda Smooth Infusion Conditioner is a pricey choice. However, given that I've noticed a difference (& not in a good way) when I haven't used it, I'd definitely consider repurchasing.
