Davines Authentic Replenishing Butter for Face, Hair, and Body

Butter makes everything better (Julia Child had it right). Well, the same goes for this skin and hair butter from Davines. Not only does it contain organic carthane oil bursting with antioxidants, but it’s also free from parabens, silicones, and artificial colors. Work it into hair for soft, silky, easy-to-control strands. Or slather it onto your face and body for velvety, nourished skin.

I got this in my box, and it is a standard size sample packet. I have fairly short hair, around shoulder length. Usually with regular conditioner I can get 3 uses from the sample packet.

When I tried to apply this to my ends, I started with just the ends, around the side, thinking I could work up and around to the back. I should have brushed my hair before, but I did not anticipate how dry this process would be! The whole packet barely covered the outside layer of about 4 inches of my ends! I tried to comb it through, thinking I could redistribute a little, but rather than smoothing my hair and creating more slip, this product made my hair tangled and matted! My hair was about as coated at if you took a quarter-sized bit of styling cream in both palms, then smeared it from about ear level to your ends on dry hair on either side of your face without distributing at all. It was seriously that dry!! If I attempted to cover even JUST the last 3 inches, but around my whole head, and all the layers deep, I would have needed at least 6 of these packets. I can imagine even the full size jar would only be a few applications.

Anyways, besides the logistics, I did not see much benefit to the product. I followed with the oil shampoo from the same line, and then used my regular conditioner, and I did not feel that this product improved the final, dry result at all.

Not a fan

I personally didn't like this product. I used it in my hair as instructed and it made it gross and not soft or shiny. Not a good product

Smells terrible
Sampled

I strongly dislike this product. The smell is absolutely terrible and smells as if my hair is being chemically burned. My hair was very dry after using this and had a very sticky texture to it , I would not recommend this product to anyone

This smells horrible...Can't get past the smell to even think about results. Thick and pungent equals bad!

Heavy hair
Sampled

The product is very creamy consistency. But my hair felt heavy after using the product. My skin felt like it had a weird film over it.

Horrid!!!

The smell of this product is not terrible, in fact it's kind of nice. When you put it on in the shower it feels ok, but I didn't feel like I could get it washed out of my hair. The next day I felt like a greaseball where I had put it in my hair. I don't suggest this to anyone.

Awful

This is the first sample I've ever thrown out moments after opening it. I have no clue what this is supposed to do. If it's lotion (which I think it is) I would have appreciated it being called lotion, not whatever word salad marketing thinks will move product.

What the...

Not sure exactly what this product is for but the smell is terrible and when I decided to use it as a hand cream it made my hands too greasy to be able to do anything afterwards. This might work well as a night hand cream, but the smell puts me off so much that I wont be using it at all.

Weird stuff
Sampled

I wasn't sure what I should use this product on. Hair, body, etc. Seemed strange you could use it on many parts of the body. I used it in my hair and didn't seem any different after using the product.
