I just talked to a Beauty Adviser at Beauty Bar, since Allure apparently has no representation on phone.I received email today from CS (in reply to something I sent) that said that _Allure_ magazine has officially taken over this box, so it sounds like there are indeed some dramatic changes going on! I wouldn't be surprised to find out that they just did spoilers for the first box to regain subscribers who had jumped ship long ago due to SO MANY MOISTURIZERS OMG and won't be doing spoilers in the future, though.
The original Oribe shampoo and conditioner formulations are quite nice. Like Wen, I think there's 2 "kinds"of Oribe.I'm kind of laughing at the Oribe spoiler. I've never heard of the brand before, but went to a new salon on Friday and that's what they use exclusively and I ended up buying a travel/sample set of their shampoo and conditioner lines to try.
It's interesting you say that. My stylist indicated something along those lines; that there is the "salon" Oribe and maybe a retail Oribe. I didn't really press about it, but this particular salon (the last time I was there a couple of years ago) used Bumble and Bumble exclusively. I asked about that, because I had planned to buy one of their conditioners I've started to like, and was told that they stopped using Bumble and Bumble after they got too big/commercial/sold out/something.The original Oribe shampoo and conditioner formulations are quite nice. Like Wen, I think there's 2 "kinds"of Oribe.
I remember when Ojon was the most fab hair care in the world, then they sold out. Sold their souls, IMO.
