I was chosen as a tester for this product and I was very excited since I had just highlighted my hair and was beginning to feel like it was dry and dull. I began using the Brilliant Glossing Cream a few days before the shampoo and conditioner (because I could not get the packages open in the shower!) I was satisfied with the cream. I like the fact that it has olive oil in it. It feels like a hydrogenated olive oil. The package says a little goes a long way and they are right, don't overdue it. I had been using Redken All Soft Argan-6 oil which I loved. This product was a close 2nd but given the choice I would buy the Redken. I finally brought scissors into the shower to use the S & C. Unfortunately, it was a night that I had a party to go to.....expecting spectacular results. Both were very heavy and thick. I was so disappointed! My hair was left feeling heavy and coated.....and looked like I didn't wash it. By glossing they mean oiling. Yes it was glossy, no I wouldn't recommend it.
