Since I ‘started’ on social media last year I have been v lucky and won a number promotional ‘free’ beauty prize draws, competitions. One of the products I discovered this way was the *Milkshake Lifestyling Smoothing Cream (150ml RRP £15.99 – I was v lucky and actually received 10 tubes as my prize, which I shared with family and friends). Although I knew of the Milkshake brand which is part of the z-one concept group, an Italian company offering professional hair and beauty products worldwide, I had never used this product before so was delighted to get the opportunity to try.
Size / Packaging
This styling cream comes in a squeezable 150ml light green tube with off-white and black writing, although the word Milkshake is hard to make out as it is in an off-white font so it may have been better if the name had been written in a different colour, would make it stand out more.
A styling cream formulated to smooth the cuticle, protect the hair during blow-drying, and give natural support. Keeps hair smoother for longer and counteracts frizz. Leaves hair soft and shiny without unwanted residue.
Application and Results
Advised to: Use the necessary quantity and apply by distributing over clean, damp hair. Proceed with styling.
The off-white cream when rubbed between your hands turns to a thick serum type consistency. It has a light fragrance which is hard to describe, not my favourite haircare fragrance but not overpowering once applied. As I have long hair I use approximately a ‘grape’ size amount and after smoothing between my finger tips I apply to my damp hair making sure it is distributed evenly and then dry / style as normal. I am v impressed with results, hair feels soft to the touch and looks smooth, glossy, without any ‘frizz’ and as it takes so little product this tube will last for ages even with using every day. I also apply a v small amount to the lengths and ends of my hair after styling and any time throughout the day, if needed, to help with humidity / weather conditions, perfect for taming any frizziness, dry ends. Love this cream as does not leave my hair feeling or looking greasy (although I avoid the root area when applying). I also love that you do not feel that you have any product in your hair.
I am not sure I would say it keeps my hair smoother longer but that could be due in part to me comparing it to the fantastic results I already I had gotten with the ‘Alfaparf Milan Cristalli Liquidi Instant Luminating Serum’ (please see my earlier review here). I think both products give great results both ways but I also love using both products together; the Milkshake styling cream prior to styling and the Alfaparf serum afterwards on the finished style – Perfect.
Although my tube will last me ages I will definitely be purchasing this product and also intend checking out other products in the range as love the fragrance of the Milkshake conditioning whipped cream, it smells divine. All my family and friends that I shared this prize with have also been v impressed with the results (used it on their own and some of their children’s hair) and intend to purchase as well once their tube is finished.
If you have never heard of this product or got round to trying it yet I would definitely recommend trying it for yourself if you can as think you will love it as well. You can find out more about this product and the Milkshake brand here.
Have you tried this cream or anything from the Milkshake range before, if so would love to know your thoughts?
