REVIEW -- Suave Professionals' NEW Moroccan Infusion Line + GIVEAWAY

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of the new Suave Moroccan Infusion line, and Suave has been kind enough to also sponsor a giveaway at the end of the post!
The new Suave Moroccan Infusion line is infused with authentic Moroccan Argan Oil -- a lightweight miracle oil that absorbs instantly to give hair brilliant shine and long lasting conditioning without weighing it down. The products are proven to add shine and condition as well as the Moroccanoil brand treatment!

The products will be available at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide beginning in January/February 2013 for a suggested retail price of $2.74 - $5.98.
I received the Moroccan Infusion Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner, Deep Conditioning Shine Mask, and Moroccan Argan Styling Oil to review. I've used other Argan Oil products on my hair before, so I was really interested to see how the new Suave line compares. Let me be the first to tell you.. that there IS no comparison. Suave knocks the Organix products I had been using completely out of the ballpark! 

First of all, the smell of the products is AMAZING. I don't know how to describe it to you, but it smells exactly like a bath set I received as a Christmas gift from my seventh grade friend Ashley. I had no clue where she bought it, and I loved the smell of that set so much that I almost never wanted to use it. Instead, I would just open it and smell the products and then close them back up. Eventually, I did use them up and it was a very sad day.. So now I'm thrilled that I can enjoy that amazing smell every day and be able to actually USE the products associated with it without the fear of using them up for good!

And the scent is the same across the entire line, which I really like. There are no competing smells, and as you use more of the products from the line, the smell intensifies in your hair ensuring that it smells amazing all day!

But now let's talk quality...

The Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner have helped keep my fresh hair color from fading so far (which happens quickly, since I generally wash my hair every day), and makes my hair soft, shiny, and tangle-free. They lather well and rinse easily, too!

The Deep Conditioning Shine Mask says to leave it on for 3-5 minutes, and I've tried that and also leaving it on overnight. It makes my hair feel like pure silk after I rinse it out! I love it! It's definitely earned a home spot in my shower for weekly use. If your hair is very damaged, it can be used up to twice a week.

Lastly, the Argan Styling Oil has replaced 3 products on my hair shelf. I was using Organix's Light Argan Oil, Crack, and Fekkai's Glossing Creme to smooth and tame my hair. Now I just use the Suave Styling Oil. 2 pumps through my hair is enough, with an extra pump for my ends because my hair is very porous. My hair is naturally very fine and oily (seriously a horrible combination!) and the Suave Argan Styling oil doesn't weigh it down or make it look greasy. All it does is smooth it and give it a gorgeous shine!
If we're being honest.. Suave never used to be a brand that I paid much attention to, but they have SERIOUSLY upped their game over the last 2 years since I started blogging! I've liked every new product that I've tried from them, and the Moroccan Infusion line is no exception!

The smell is amazing, and the products leave my hair soft, shiny, and smooth! And the fact that the Styling Oil was single-handedly able to replace THREE products in my daily hair routine (two of which are costly!) speaks volumes as to how absolutely fantastic this line is.. and the price point is awesome as well!

I love it. I will more of it as soon as my current bottles run out! I'm thrilled to give the new Suave Moroccan Infusion line a PERFECT RATING of 5 out of 5 stars!

RATING: 5 out of 5 STARS
