Askmewhats Reviews: L'oreal Elvive Shampoo and Conditioner

I have been an avid user of The Face Shop's Changpo Magic Straight Shampoo and Conditioner. I got a bit tired of going around different branches to look for it and wait for the stocks to arrive as this is quite saleable (Yup, always out of stock for approx $18.00 both shampoo and conditioner).

Since the L'oreal Elseve line came out to the market, I've been eyeing to try on the products but I always got scared to! Hahaha I'm a coward when it comes to hair products, as I had my hair gone bad story when I was younger because of wrong choice of shampoo.

I went to the Duty Free Shop again recently and I saw the L'oreal Elvive line. I like the packaging better and they've got more choices to choose from! hehehe So, I gave in and tried L'oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Shampoo together with the L'oreal Elvive Multi-Vitamine Conditioner. I wanted both to be from the same line but I kinda thought about getting the best of both worlds! Since I have Nutri-gloss from the shampoo, I might as well get more vitamins from the conditioner for my Hair! hahaha Good thinking? or not? hehehe's how the product looks like...oh yeah, both shampoo and conditioner combined price is cheaper compared to my previous one, both of this totaled around $8.50 !

I think it's safe for me to do a review now as I've been using this product for more than a month.

Askmewhats says ---

  • both shampoo and conditioner smells super nice
  • my hair is softer and tangle-free
  • cheaper than my TFS brand
  • I didn't see any "glossy" effect (well maybe I'm using both different lines?)
  • at the end of the day, my hair kinda weighed down and doesn't have the body anymore (note: I'm in an air-conditioned room almost the whole day)
This isn't a bad product, I would say this is one of the better product in the market today. But if I compare this to my Changpo Magic Straight Shampoo and Conditioner, TFS Changpo still would top my list. Even my hubby said my hair looks better with the Changpo line :D

Will I repurchase?
I'll try their different line, they have more I believe hehehe Or I may go back to TFS Changpo line

How about you guys? What brand of shampoo and conditioner do you use? And are you loyal with it?

Your askmewhats,


  1. I used Elvive Nutri-Gloss shampoo and conditioner before. Thought it was so-so. Now, it's Joico for me all the way!!

  2. local products. :) nutrizen peppermint shampoo or head and shoulder thick and long and my all time fave creamsilk stand out. :)

  3. Liz! we don't have Joico here....I may keep my eyes open if we have it here, I'll give it a go and try it!

    Sis Shen, Creamsilk was good for me before, but I just don't know, there are times really that I need to change! hehehe

  4. Hi Nikki,

    I was just browsing around and led up to your site and read your product review about L'real.

    Could I send a link to your blog to my wife as she works for the agency that handles the brand?

    Me, I recently switched to Clear (the white one) but traditionally use Palmolive (sorry, forgot the variant). hehehe.


  5. Hi Gil, thanks so much for dropping by! Yay! I think you are my first MALE reader (aside from my husband) that i'm aware of! And yes, feel free to forward this link to your wife :) Hope this will be of help to your wife! (I don't know in what way, in any way!)


  6. Have you tried the new Sunsilk waves of envy gel & cream twist? It's the new fav here in America.

  7. hey there kuku, no :( we don't have that here.... but who knows IF its hot in america, it may come over :) Thanks for visiting girl!
