Curtain Call: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

Today we have another segment of Curtain Call. The product up for evaluation and review is the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. I managed to get these with my Extra Care Bucks (ECB) from CVS to get more ECB with this purchase.

At 236 ml / 8 fl oz, this retails for $4.29 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole squeeze tube bottle lasted me for almost 4 months. I don’t use this everyday, maybe about once a week. With my long hair, that’s pretty good. The front text reads “deeeeep conditioner” and “Deeep conditioning for damaged do’s”. The back of the tube reads the following:

“Super deep conditioning for a seriously simple fix to dry, damaged hair. It’s your own little miracle. DIRECTIONS: Work into clean, wet hair. Use the next 2 minutes and 45 seconds to think deep thoughts about your day. Rinse with warm water, then cool water, then go!”

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

Verdict? I love it. This does the trick in providing the deep conditioning my hair needs about every week. My hair feels so soft and so smooth after using this product. No tangles at all, which I love. The scent is coconut in nature. Take note of that in case you are not a coconut scent fan. A little goes a long way, so this can easily last you past 4 months if you have hair shorter than mine (mine is up to the middle of my back). I find that my roots don’t need much of it, so I start application from the tips working my way up to the scalp.

This product can easily be purchased in various retail and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, ULTA, CVS, and Walgreens. It is also available online at various websites that carry beauty and personal care products.


Curtain Call: Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

I haven’t done a Curtain Call entry in a while, so I dug deep and decided to see what products have reached the end of its life recently and this is where Aussie steps in. I have had the pleasure of using their Aussome Volume Shampoo & Conditioner for the past few months now. I managed to get these with my Extra Care Bucks (ECB) from CVS to get more ECB with this purchase. I’m sure glad I did!

At 13.5 fl oz / 400 ml, this retails for $3.99 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole bottles lasted me for a little over 2 months and with my past shoulder length hair, that’s pretty good. The front text reads “boosts hair that’s fallen flat” and “lightweight conditioning to fight droopy do’s”. The back of the bottles states the following:

Shampoo: “Oomph up your do in a flash! Accented with White Ginger this shampoo gets you ready for great volume.”

Conditioner: “Aussome Volume Conditioner with Wild Cherry Bark, leaves your hair with volume.”

Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Verdict? Awesome shampoo and conditioner in sturdy, purple bottles? Almost a definite WIN for me! It is reasonably priced, very accessible (available just about everywhere shampoo and conditioner is sold) and smells great. It’s hard to describe the scent, but I would say it’s citrus-y more than anything else. Shampoo leaves hair squeaky clean and conditioner provides just the right amount of softness to keep hair free of tangles. I can’t vouch for the volume claim though. I was hoping it’d give me more volume than what I got, but a good buy for the price and quality overall. I was sad the day I found these bottles empty. Good thing I have another of each stocked up. 🙂

This product can easily be purchased in various retail and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, ULTA, CVS, and Walgreens. It is also available online at various websites that carry beauty and personal care products.
