To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Let's be clear here. I like American Crew. I've been using their shampoo and styling gel for years. So this is NOT a review of American Crew. This is a review of whatever it is that came in the bottle I ordered.
One primary reason I like it is, is that I like the scent - and that's why I think this latest bottle of 3 in 1 Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash is fake. It does not have the scent. I started to do a return, but figured that the cost and hassle of doing the return just wasn't worth the time and effort involved vs the cost of the product. :-(
So, I'll just take this as a loss. So much for ordering a "ships and sold by Amazon" product. Disappointed.
American Crew has a very distinct smell that’s wonderful, these don’t smell like anything, I feel like it was replaced with something generic, because it definitely is not Crew! My husband and son have been using it for years, this is the first time buying it online and there is no smell.
I’m not 100% sure because I do not have a way to support my following claim with empirical, data-driven evidence like GC-MS or HPLC but this definitely isn’t what it says it is. I know that counterfeit cosmetics and shampoos specifically have been going around on Amazon and I’ve been duped a couple times for this exact product but this felt nothing like, smelled nothing like and lathered nothing like the genuine American Crew 3-in-1. It was thin, watery, and mixed with an inferior product that was obvious to make up the majority of the fluid. It had only a faint smell of actual American Crew shampoo/body wash.
Whatever is in this shampoo is NOT American Crew. It does not smell like American Crew, nor does the liquid look like American Crew. The seller who is selling this product clearly filled it with something else. It's more like a lotion than a shampoo. American Crew now sells their products directly from their website. I'd suggest buying direct to ensure you're getting the real product.
This is NOT American Crew. I was replacing an existing bottle of the same product that I purchased (at a higher cost) from a retailer, and a simple smell test made it clear. I wouldn't even have been mad that it was a knock off if it was anywhere remotely close to the original product. Will be returning, avoid this one!
This product is a knock off. I bought this for a Christmas gift exchange and when the recipient opened it to smell it, they were turned off. The smell is distinctly different than the product if you purchase it at a physical store and it is very drying on your skin. This smells like a rubber factory cleaning product, NOT the salon level, moisturizing, skin care product that you would buy at Ulta. Buyer Beware!!
Ok product came in and spilled over the cap in plastic film. So I thought no biggie it's still fine, until I smelled the bottle and compared it to my American Crew 3in1 that I had a little left over from a local store purchase months ago. Wow!!!! was I shocked not sure what was in the bottle but I hope someone does a chemical test on what this stuff was, because it sure wasn't the one I have used before. Anyway tossed this goop in the trash, who knows what it was???
