Product Review: L’Oreal Studio Smoothness styling cream

by Bionic Beauty on 04.Oct.2008 · 1 comment

I love finding good quality hair products at the drugstore. It’s fun to pick up some new bargains, and even better when you find a gem. The L’Oreal Studio Smoothness Smoothing Cream Glossing Cream (that name is a bit redundant, right? It’s not just me, is it?) is not really a gem.



I had high hopes for this product since I adore styling creams. They typically are light weight and keep humidity out while taming flyaways gently. And they seem to work for numerous hair types. For the record, my hair type is mostly straight, fine, slightly dry, and chin length. I used this styling cream after a fresh shampoo and condition. Then blow dried gently.

My hair flew everywhere. I had knots, tangles, and frizzies. Normally I have some flyaways, but I looked like I had stuck my finger in an electrical socket. Great for Halloween… not so good for a normal day. I did LOVE the scent though, but not enough to use it again. It certainly make work for some but for me? Nope.

If you’d like to try it out, most drugstoresicon and mass market retailers are carrying the product (Walmart, Kmart, Target, etc) and it’s very affordable (around $4.99). I would love to hear if it works for you and please let me know what type of hair you have so we can figure out who this works for and who it doesn’t. 🙂

I tried and loved the Hot Straight Straightening Cream by L’Oreal – but my hair might be a bit oilier than yours. It has a nice amount of silicone to give my hair some slipperiness while I’m drying it, but not too much to weigh it down.
Also! I am LOVING the Milani eyeshadows you recommended!
