L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Power Moisture Moisture Rush Mask

Friday, May 3, 2013

Long time no haircare post, no? Recently I picked up a tub of L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Moisture Rush Mask from the Power Moisture line. I'd been running low on my beloved Design Essentials Express Instant Moisturizing Conditioner treatment so when I saw that the L'Oreal Moisture Rush Mask was on sale for $5.99 and I had a two dollar off coupon, I was very eager to try it. I had read great reviews on it on MakeupAlley (4.5/5 lipsticks) but more importantly I saw that it was touted as a hyaluronic treatment. I love hyaluronic acid for my skin so I hoped that it would do great things for my hair. 

The L'Oreal Moisture Rush Mask comes in a solid 8.5 fl oz tub. It's lightweight, almost watery gel-like in consistency. It is a pretty mint shade, the same color as the outside packaging. The scent is your typical ubiquitous drugstore hair product fragrance, mild and to me rather pleasant. It doesn't linger once you've used the mask and dried your hair. 

The application is pretty straight forward, apply to your hair after shampooing instead of conditioner. Rinse out after 3-5 minutes. It recommends using it with the Power Moisture Shampoo, which I also have been using. I don't think it makes too much of a difference which shampoo you use, but to be honest I quite like the Power Moisture Shampoo despite it having sodium laureth sulfate. 

My hair is color treated and quite dry at the ends. Since I have problems with limp, volume-less hair, I didn't apply it on my scalp the first time as to not weigh my hair down. Instead I applied it midway down the hair shaft and was extremely generous with it at my ends. I shouldn't have worried, the formula is really lightweight and once I rinsed it out and dried my hair, I didn't feel any sort of residual heaviness or stickiness. Just soft, silky hair that was not parched for moisture like it had been previously. 

Overall, I really love the L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Moisture Rush Mask. It does a great job of softening and moisturizing my hair. However, I feel like it is not quite as good as my HG Design Essentials Express, but it is close. It is however cheaper (Design Essentials Express is $9.99 for 6 fl oz at Ulta), especially with constant drugstore sales and coupons, so I will be incorporating into my haircare regime more often. 

Now I really also want to try the L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm, which is a protein treatment. Have you tried any products from the different L'Oreal Advanced Haircare lines? What did you think?
