Reviews for Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo
People say Eva Nyc is really similar to Amika.
Dupe for an expensive dry shampoo?!
I'm tempted to say that this could be a cheap alternative to the amika dry shampoo that I love (which is the only one that doesn't make my scalp feel gunky)! A full size of the amika one is I believe $22-23 while a full size of this one is only around $12. It even smells the same too! Doesn't leave a white cast so long as you don't overdo it. Leaves hair feeling fresh and light. Oh and funny/stupid fact: it doesn't hurt if you accidentally spray it in your eye because you aren't wearing your glasses or contacts & can't see a dang thing you're doing hahaha I received this product free for testing purposes.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It works great on brown hair, smells beautifully and leaves no residue. Originally I was hooked on Amika dry shampoo and I read that this was the same product with different packaging and can testify that it is definitely. MUST BUY for anyone! I received this product for free for test purposes.
Comparable to Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo.
I really liked this dry shampoo. I found it to be quite similar to the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. They both smell very similar and do a great job. I don't like to wash my hair everyday, so I was it every 2 to 3, sometimes ever after 4 days. After 3 days, using this dry shampoo made me hair look and feel as if I just washed and dried it. I absolutely recommend this product.
I will admit that I am a dry shampoo hoarder. I can't help but keep at least 5+ in my bathroom cabinet at all times to rotate. I was super excited to receive this complimentary sample because lord knows I can always use more. It smells and works exactly like the Amika dry shampoo but a fraction of the price! Love that it came in a travel size so I can leave it in my handbag for those hair emergencies!
Beware, new scent
To me, this was a dupe for Amika dry shampoo until recently they changed some of their formulas. The new scent reminds me of an old vanilla potpourri and the smell is very overwhelming and it gives me a headache. This is the only dry shampoo that works for my hair type but unfortunately, the smell is too strong. My hair type is thin and fine. I wish they would go back to the old scent.
The smell is harsh, but if you can handle this is GOOD
The only reason I won't be returning this dry shampoo, is after a couple of uses it really does do the job well. I just have a really hard time with the scents. I searched for a long time for a budget friendly UNSCENTED dry shampoo and just can't find anything that works. This one works great, but has a very strong smell. Reminds me of the amika dry shampoo smell - so if you like that, you'll love this. I just can't handle the strong scent that hangs around all day.
Reminds me of a similar product...
As a no-poo devotee a good dry shampoo had become one of my best kept secrets. I've tried both high end and drugstore brands and definitely have a favorite but it's much too pricey for my budget. So I continue to search for something I like just as well. While this one wasn't quite a win it's definitely one worth recommending. I've been using it on 4th day hair and found it's not as absorbent as I need but it's gentler and doesn't leave yucky white mess like some others can. Depending on your hair type this would be good for second day hair where you'll also be adding styling product. My experience didn't find it particularly volumizing and I don't care for the smell, which reminds me of Amika's Perk Up Dry Shampoo. Come to think of it, I'd go so far as to call it a cheaper dupe of that one. I received this product free for testing.
Love this dry shampoo!
I received this product complimentary to try. I really like this dry shampoo! I'm really picky when it comes to what I use in my hair and I thought I had nailed down my dry shampoo favorite but this became a serious contender. I use Amika normally but I really like this one too! I will say it didn't seem to last as long as Amika does but that could be because of other factors as well. All-in-all I would use this product! I love receiving things to try like this, it really opens up my mind to other products i wouldn't have known of.
Smells great, but not very heavy-duty
The smell and texture of this remind me a lot of the Amika dry shampoo, which is one of my favorites. It smells great and is very lightweight, but is not the most heavy-duty dry shampoo I've used and doesn't do much in the way of texture. It's great if you use dry shampoo to freshen up a blowout the day after, but I personally prefer more mattifying/texture-building dry shampoos and powders, as my hair tends towards oily and I like a more tousled look. But if you tend to wear your hair sleek and just need a little help at the roots on the second or third day, this would be a great option. Doesn't get flaky or powdery and doesn't leave white residue either. I received this product free in exchange for my review.
