Askmewhats Reviews: Kerastase Noctogenist Serum

Almost everyone working in the Philippines are on their Holidays! Sad to say, I work in a company that DO not follow Philippine Holidays! So I'm at work Dec 26th, Dec 29th and Dec 30th! NERD! lol

Anyways, everyone knows aside from make up, I'm also a Hair Product Geek! I love hair products that can promise smooth, shiny, silky hair! LOL Don't we all wish it?

I've been eyeing Kerastase products for the LONGEST time, what's stopping me is the price! LOL I find it really hard to shell out Php2,000 (approx $43.00) worth of ONE single hair product.

I am lucky that a contact have this product sold for half the price! I guess she's got the means! Definitely original! The lady works in a magazine company, the reason for the freebies and the reason for selling it to me at an affordable price!!! :)

The Looks




125ML tube










Kerastase says ---

For the first time, Kérastase offers total overnight care for your hair. Your hair needs to be looked after 24 hours a day to be in fantastic condition, during the day, humidity, sunlight and city living can be damaging to the hair and can cause it to lose essential moisture. Noctogenist deeply nourishes hair throughout the night, so you wake up with revived hair that is in optimal condition.

Technology
  • Amino Acid
  • Vitamin E Derivative
  • Silk Protein
Benefits
  • Renews hair with softness and shine and adds suppleness and manageability.
  • Protects hair from daytime aggressors.
  • Nourish hair all night long
  • Replenish and moisturize hair whilst you sleep.
  • Awaken to beautifully radiant, replenished hair
Application

Before going to bed, massage through dry or towel-dried hair. Do not rinse. Ingredients are absorbed by the hair during the night, leaving no residue. In the morning, style as usual.


Askmewhats says --- Pros
  • smells great
  • leaves my hair tangle free the next day, even if I shampoo my hair again in the morning
  • hair is soft to the touch, hair doesn't feel weighed down
  • hair is easier to comb
  • you don't need a lot, just a dime size
Cons
  • pricey, BUT the 125ml tube lasts long as you use only small amount
  • for lazy people: this is a CON lol
  • I don't see the shine that the product promises
Overall

The Kerastase Noctogenist serum is actually an overnight serum for thick hair, I don't have thick hair and so far, it works for me. They have another one for fine hair that is a spray on formula (never tried this)
Now, I understand why most hair salon offers hair treatment using this brand, as this product does deliver and come to think of it, even if its expensive, I don't need to pay a lot to go to the salon just for ONE treatment. One tube can last me more than 3 months for sure!

Tips
  • apply this from mid shaft of the hair down to the root area, avoiding the scalp
  • massage the product on your hair
  • slowly comb through your hair for the product to be evenly distributed
  • apply this on dry hair
  • you don't have to use this every night, you can do this 3-4 times a week
Will I repurchase?

Yes

Where can you purchase and how much?

Any salon here in the Philippines (ex. David's, Jessie Mendez, Bench Fix, etc...)
Costs Php1,500++ (approx $32.00)

Oh yeah, I had the chance to meet up with blogger Anne from Yummiebitez
She came to the Philippines to visit her relatives and she spared time for us Filipina bloggers!
It was great to finally see her in person!!!
She's really cute and pretty!
Pictures will be up soon...
well depends on how soon my fellow bloggers post theirs and I'll just nick it from them
LOL :)
