Oribe Review

Oribe Review High End Hair Care Gold Lust

We purchased over $300 in Oribe products with our own money! You bet we’re gonna give an honest review of this luxury hair care line.

Here are the following products we reviewed, of which many of which were from their Gold Lust collection.

We were super stoked that their products are formulated without parabens and sodium chloride. They’re also gluten free, cruelty free, sulfate free, and even provides UV protection. Everything the team could think of, they included in their optimized hair care formulas.

Below we’ll give a quick review of each product we tested.

#1 Gold Lust Restore and Repair Shampoo ($49)

Oribe Shampoo review Gold Lust

Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo

The Restore and Repair shampoo smells amazing! The silky texture lathers easily. It left my hair feeling very soft and thoroughly cleansed.

I used a quarter sized amount on my long thick hair.

#2 The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo ($44)

The Cleanse Clarifying shampoo is a foam that lathers easily. I alternate between the Restore and Repair shampoo and this shampoo.

This shampoo has a super creamy texture and smells amazing. A strawberry sized dollop is enough to wash my long thick hair.

#3 Gold Lust Restore and Repair Conditioner ($52)

After shampooing, I used the Restore and Repair conditioner. I took a quarter-sized amount and left it in my hair for 5 minutes. During this time I wash my body and face while the conditioner penetrates my hair and scalp.

For an added treat, I highly recommend using a silicone scalp brush to evenly distribute the conditioner and massage your scalp.

#4 Gold Lust Dry Shampoo ($48)

In between the days where I do not wash my hair, I use the dry shampoo to revive my hair. It smells exactly like the shampoo and doesn’t leave a chalky residue like most dry shampoos.

It also comes in travel sizes so your hair can look fleek while you explore the world.

#5 Serene Scalp Leave-On Treatment ($48)

I suffer from dry scalp and dandruff and it’s embarrassing. I use a pea-sized amount of the leave on treatment on my fingertips and target the sensitive areas on my scalp. I do this once a week to soothe and moisturize my dry scalp.

It’s great for hair that has been chemically treated. It soothes any burning sensations you may experience from hair treatment.

The tube is very skinny. Luckily you do not need to use a lot of it. A little goes a long way.

#6 Gold Lust Nourishing Power Drops ($56)

The serum is very moisturizing and a little does go a long way. I dropped about 4-5 drops into the palm of my hand and massaged it into my damp hair. Throughout the day my hair became softer, more relaxed and really helped tame my frizz.

The only gripe I have is that I was pretty disappointed in the dropper. The bottle has a top pump that barely captured and deposited any serum. I also had to use more than the recommended 3 drops to get enough coverage on my hair.

The quantity was also very small. I’ll probably be done with this bottle in less than a month.

Is Oribe Worth It?

Oribe is very expensive compared to other brands. I mean, they have a $200+ hair brush! Their products also range from $48 to $228.

It’s definitely a luxurious product and kept my hair super soft, relaxed, shiny, and manageable throughout multiple washes. It also smells amazing!

The product really does work and I can see a huge difference between Oribe and drug store brands, heck even against Sephora‘s brands.

I would not necessarily consistently invest in Oribe because I have a tendency to live on a budget, but if it’s within your means, you totally should invest in Oribe!

For now, we’ll continue to play the lottery and hope we get super lucky and Oribe will be in our restrooms forever. A trip to their flagship salon in Miami, might be in my future too!

Oh, and if you’re looking for an amazing hairbrush that isn’t $200+, check out KareCo’s Tangle Buster brush. It’s amazing!!!
