REVIEW: de-luxe Conditioner, Rosemary Mint

I was looking for something to replace my St. Ives Intensive Conditioner Moisture Treatment (since the company has stopped making it) and came across this since it’s rosemary mint.

This is a good lightweight conditioner similar to the St. Ives but not the amazing miracle cure. If you don’t like the smell of real mint, you’re not going to like this. If you have fine hair, you probably will love this because it’s very light. Quality ingredient list but I’m going to keep looking. Definately a good conditioner for the $5 price range. 🙂

    I think I found my replacement! Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Conditioner!!! I bought it on sale for around $6 at the local co-op grocery and is normally around $8 a bottle. I really do love this conditioner and it has the added bonus of being all natural (since I’m trying to switch over to healthier products.) And even though it says it’s tea tree, there is a lot of peppermint in this. The only thing I’m hesitant on is the fact that I don’t know if it’s a 99% match (and it’s been so long now since I’ve used the St. Ives.)

    Does anyone still have the ingredient list from the St. Ives Hair Repair to compare it to?

    I think though that I’m sure enough after 2 uses that I would buy the 3 pack here on the right if it’s not on sale locally (the one on the left is a single bottle – and if you have an Amazon Prime account the three pack on the right has free shipping or it counts towards your free shipping order if you don’t have a prime account):

    I bought this product because I thought it might be a good replacement, and was not very happy with the results. It did give the tingly ffeling, but left my hair feeling far from the desired effect. I am still looking!

    I found a couple that you might try … but since I don’t know what all the ingredients were on the St. Ives lotion I’m not sure how they compare:
    Nature’s Gate Herbal Skin Therapy Tea Tree lotion – I’ve seen this brand at our local co-op grocery so you might be able to find it locally
    Alabu Soap – Lotion Stick – Tea Tree Skin Care – I haven’t heard of this brand before but the ingredient list looks good

    The other thing you may be able to do is buy a good lotion and add tea tree oil to it.

    Or maybe try a lotion after using Burt’s Bees – Doctor Burt’s Herbal Blemish Stick with Tea Tree Oil. Just some ideas on where I would start trying to replace it. Co-op groceries and health food stores are always a good place to check also if you’re looking for something with a lot of natural ingredients.

    why on earth does st.ives keep doing that?
    same thing happened to me! I was so in luv with their clarifying clear pore tea tree lotion. They dont make it but they still make the coordinating facial cleanser.
    Horrid. I’ve been looking for a replacement ever since with no real luck… Im open to suggestions!
