5.0 out of 5 starsNo review can describe this, you have to try it!

I was a little skeptical when I ordered this moisturizing cream, why should a cream cost so much? The answer is quite evident once you use this, I am truly blown away by how big of a difference I can immediately feel in the quality of this product! 10/10 Oribe! Also this product is made without the use of parabens sodium chloride, and offers UV protection additionally :)
As always I tested this product by itself to more accurately gauge its results and not have it skewed by other products.
The premium ingredients include a host of extremely beneficial compounds such as hydrolyzed vegetable, soy, and wheat proteins, wheat amino acids, lychee fruit, sunflower seed, and watermelon, and many other fruit and root extracts!
Packaging/Look --------------------------------------------------------------------------- As I opened my Amazon package and pulled it out, right off the bat it's quite evident you are paying for a quality product. The blue container came in a nice box (not only looked nice, but environmentally friendly too as it was made from "well-managed forests" and printed using plant-based ink - bonus points for going green!)
The bottle itself is pretty enough to leave on your counter and features an embossed logo on the cap.
Scent --------------------------------------------------------------------------- I would describe the smell as unisex, its quite pleasant but not overwhelming. Reminds me of a product I used in Sweden once can't place my finger on it. As a male, I liked the smell and females have complimented me on it as well :)
Feel --------------------------------------------------------------------------- It has a medium to light consistency and can be easily squeezed out of the bottle. I like that it didn't leave behind a greasy or oily feel after and was easy to wash off my hands once I was done applying.
Results --------------------------------------------------------------------------- This moisturizer left my hair feeling smooth and silky, I actually got complimented at work twice today and was asked what I was using! It prevented post-shower frizz, kept my hair shiny and strong looking, and helped retain moisture throughout the day so my hair didn't look all dry and dull. I truly love it and will be buying it when I run out of this bottle :) No other product can compare!

================ Product Quality: Excellent. Packaged well and branded well and feels like a premium product.
================ Performance: Excellent. It did the trick to keep my hair feeling moisturized all day. This in turn helps to reduce frizz! Although I have short hair, I do get frizz and my hair is very thick – so this product really helps me maintain that and manage it better – and keep it looking great all day throughout the work day!
================ Overall: Great product and works especially well with people with thick hair. I know most products don’t do the trick for my hair, but this was an exception. The ONLY gripe is the price unfortunately – it’s not a cheap product and isn’t something that I can see a lot of people buying as it’s not very affordable. Fix this and this is a 5 star product.
======================= Rating Breakdown (5/5) Product Quality: 5 Ease of use: 5 Performance: 5 Value for Money: 3 Overall: 4.5
4.0 out of 5 starsLovely Fragrance, nice product but too expensive for what it is
Reviewed in Canada on 3 September 2017
This product goes a long way if you use the smallest amount. I used it after I showered on my damp/towel-dried hair. It has a soft, fresh and not overpowering scent to it, and it is very easy to massage into the hair without it tangling or becoming a hot mess. The moisturizing cream left my hair smelling great as well as not feeling too weighed down with product. It has a nice luster to it. However, the price tag is what makes me want to go into the shower and hide in the corner and rock back and forth. I was hoping for some really stand-out effect for this kind of money but I am positive you can achieve the same result with many other hair products out there and pay 1/3 of the price. In conclusion I think it's a nice product, but like so many other beauty products, it uses a well marketed brand name to convince people to pay a fortune for what is essentially no better than a typical $20 equivalent product. The margin on these must be huge.
5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic hair care from Oribe, at a steep price

I almost want to sound like those French commercials, where the light wind and ocean waves create a background upon which a beautiful accented french maiden says "Oribeeeeeee, something you simply can't afford" LOL I can only imagine you pissed you'd be.
But you know what? It's the truth! The Oribe product line is very expensive, but here's the catch—they are actually worth the money you pay. So if you have money, and you want results, give it a try and watch yourself grow hair that only Madame Chic-cette can only rival.
I had my mother test this stuff out, and here are the results: without any harsh chemicals, hair was significantly softer, cleaner, smoother, less frizzy, and more bouncy. Repeated use brought out better results...please don't forget that hair care products that advertise vitamins and all of that marketing crap are just that: crap because they fail tell you that hair is dead skin, and the only way you're going to make it nicer is by using products that act on the cuticles outside of each strand and on the keratin within each strand.
Wow...just wow. I love how my hair feels. My hair is naturally curly so it is flyaway and coarse. On top of that I swim three times a week. My hair gets dry and flyaway. Since I started using this product the difference is amazing. My hair is SOFT, really soft, I love to touch it. There is a downside of the high price but I only use a VERY little amount. Note: Start with a small amount - you can always use more the next time if it is not enough. What worked for me: Shampoo and towel dry - squeeze out excess moisture. Put a small amount of Oribe Supershine in your palm, rub your palms together first then distribute the product through your wet hair with your hand/fingers so it is evenly distributed. Comb and style. I do not blow dry. The instructions say to add to dry hair but I did not have any success with this.
Update: After using this for over a month I noticed my hair is so silky that it doesn't hold the curls as well. I resorted to using styling products to hold the curl...and have to use lots of it. LOL never thought I would complain of too soft hair. If I had straight or wavy hair I would pay the price the Oribe Supershine because it is amazing, I like my curls though so after this tube I will go back to my other product. Maybe keep some on hand for special occasions. :)
5.0 out of 5 starsFirst class frizz control and increased shine make this a top tier product, well worth it's price.

If you are like me and you have longer hair, "frizz" is your constant companion, as unwelcome as it is. I have tried a number of different products with varying levels of success. Never have I used something that is as easy and as effective as this creme conditioner. I continue to be "wowed" by it. I simply wash my hair, condition it as I normally would and then after a good towel drying, apply a "quarter" sized dab in my hand, distribute that dab between my two hands and rub through my hair. That is it. Fantastic results.
Like all the other Oribe products, it comes nicely presented, smells like creamy luxury and has an eye catching price tag to go with it but in this case, I can justify every cent of that price. It doesn't take much, to make a very noteworthy difference to my hair. It even has a glimmwring shine to it that is simply radiant and yet, it does not leave behind any residuals.
I simply love this creme. It smells phenomenal, works like nothing else I have ever used, the effects last for days and even my husband says he sees the difference. So, yes, I am fine with the price on this one!
5.0 out of 5 starsHelps to restore healthy appearance to damaged hair
Reviewed in Canada on 31 August 2017
If you’re looking for lustrous, glossy tresses, this supershine moisturizing hair cream can definitely help you achieve that! My hair has some heat and styling damage and a lot of split ends from skipping trim appointments - I found this cream really restored the healthy sheen to my hair and made it look sleek instead of frizzy and neglected. At the same time it makes my hair easy to de-tangle and brush/comb through once it’s mostly dried.
The cream has shimmery particles infused in the formula so not only does it help moisturize and rejuvenate your hair, it also adds some subtle gleam. I can’t actually see the sparkles on my hair strands but I notice after applying the cream to my hair that my hands are shimmery!
I like that I can apply this to almost all of my hair (just avoiding the roots) without immediately weighing down my fine hair. I use a quick squirt or two to either apply just to my lower lengths or to the entirety. I find this amount sufficient for providing a healthy glow and sheen without making it greasy or heavy. I apply this whether I’ve used conditioner or not and I find that it always improves the appearance of my hair. I usually apply it while my hair is still damp but I sometimes use it a bit to touch up the ends of my hair when it’s dry.
The scent of the cream is very subtle and pleasant. Not at all overpowering or offensive and I think even those who are very sensitive to fragrances will be okay with this product. You can’t really notice the scent in your hair after a short while so it wouldn’t likely be an issue anyways. I consider this a very high-end hair care product and I wouldn’t pay regular price for it ($55+) but I won’t knock off a star due to the price as it’s a worthwhile product for those with higher budgets. If it were to go on sale and dip below a certain price threshold, I would definitely consider buying this!
This is a great moisturizing cream, the price is a bit high-but you get a generous sized tube, that will last if you use it once a week to a couple of times a month to treat and smooth your hair, depending on your hair type.
One of the best things about this moisturizing crème is the smell, it smells absolutely incredible. It also feels rich on your hands as well as on your hair. It is easy to apply and not too messy. I have fine hair with blonde highlights. I would recommend this cream, especially for frizzy, damaged, dry or colour treated hair. Though if your hairs in pretty good shape, it doesn’t hurt to use a cream like this to lock in moisture and prevent future damage. A good quality cream is also essential if you frequently use hot styling tools, like blow dryers and straighteners, on your hair. Oribe products come in really pretty packaging, you’ll want to display it in your bathroom, rather than hide it away in a cupboard. Overall, I am very happy with the smell, feel and results of this product-the only drawback being the price point.
5.0 out of 5 starsVery high-quality luxury leave-in moisturizing conditioner for the most demanding hair

Oribe Hair care products are founded by renowned celebrity hairstylist Oribe and is targeted towards most talented salon professionals and most demanding customers. These are the products of the hair-obsessed and very high price tag shows that.
I like the fact that there are lots of natural ingredients in this product like - Oribe Signature Complex (Watermelon, Lychee and Edelweiss Flower Extracts), Soy Protein, Wheat Amino Acids, Moringa Seed Extract, Kaempferia Galanga Root Extract.
ORIBE Hair Care Supershine Moisturizing Crème is leave in conditioner. As the name indicates it provides intense gloss to the hair. In just one application it made my dry hair deeply moisturized and silky smooth and shiny. This is the product to wear for special occasions. I applied it on damp hair. My daughter has long and frizz prone hairs and this cream tamed the frizz well. It also provides UV protection to hair. Fragrance is always a strong point of ORIBE products and it carries ORIBE’s signature fragrance which I like very much. Though scent is not very strong, it is definitely noticeable and people sensitive to it may find issue with it.
Packaging: Like all Oribe products packaging as well as containers feels upscale, well-designed sophisticated and elevated. Packaging is eco-friendly and printed with vegetable inks.
Very high-quality luxury leave-in moisturizing conditioner for the most discriminating hair-obsessed people.
