We finally ran out of the gigantic bottle that we started using since before moving abroad to Japan. It was one of those humongous family size bottle, and with one use a week plus a few years stint overseas and it lasted us for years! With our move a month ago, I happily went shopping for a new clarifying shampoo and found myself picking up this 373mL/12.6fl oz. bottle of Suave Professionals Rosemary + Mint Invigorating Clean Shampoo. For a weekly use I wasn't planning on spending a lot, so this suits the purpose.
This shampoo is clear and colorless, which I actually prefer in a clarifying shampoo so just base on that, it's already perfect. I smelled it at the store, and the mint scent was nice. But holy crap, it smells so much better in the shower! I couldn't detect any rosemary, but the fragrance of raw and fresh mint is unbelievably refreshing! And by mint I don't mean peppermint, or any of the fake mint stuff. I'm talking about the sprig of mint they garnish your alcoholic mix drinks with - have you ever nibble on those? Yes, that's what this shampoo smells like, fresh mint! My goodness I LOVE it! It smells sooooooooooo nice! Don't get me wrong here, but the smell actually reminds me a bit of Method Glass & Surface Cleaner MINUS the chemical detergent ^.^ So no, it doesn't smell like cleaner at all, just the fresh mint.
As a clarifying shampoo it does its job. My hair feels clean and not stripped, and it doesn't turn greasy the next day. Let's just say I already bought a back up bottle, because who knows how long this bottle will last us ^.^ If it'll take us a few years to finish, by the time we're done they won't make it anymore and that would be a shame! For the price, this clarifying shampoo is awesome! Give it a try!
