New "Tea Therapy" products

It was a product I was desperately in need of and could not go one more day without. I wasn't near my usual grocery store, so I had to settle for whatever was handy at another grocery store I happened to be driving by. And then while looking in the appropriate section for the items I saw this: Tea Therapy. Hmmm. Two different kinds were offered, so I got them both.

One of the "therapies" included green tea, which, I hate to tell the marketers, has a graphic which looks very much like black tea and not green tea to me! (Don't even get me started on what those green leaves are doing floating around in the cup!)

The other? Chamomile Tea, and it too looks black. Interesting!

And the products? Albert VO5 shampoo and conditioner, both of which contain camellia sinensis leaf extract. Now to be honest with you, I really prefer Pantene's shampoos and conditioners above all others, but I had forgotten to restock so I decided to spend the $1 each on the VO5 products, which I normally find a bit too thin for my hair. The shampoo lived up to its package claim and indeed it did have richer lather than I've seen with them in the past, which made that a dollar well spent. The conditioner and I did not get along well, however (it's much too thin), so it will be going to the DH, whose hair is not as high maintenance as mine. Still, a fun experiment for $2!

  1. I found myself in the same predicament while on vacation, so it was off to the nearest grocery store for shampoo. That's when I discovered this Tea Therapy product.

    I was glad to see that it actually contained camellia sinensis leaf extract, but was a bit shocked at the long list of chemical ingredients (as with most products). I also liked this shampoo - it had a good lather and nice fragrance.

  2. That was great. You really had me fooled. I was thinking I had seen that brand of tea at Whole Foods!

  3. So funny. What we're willing to try so we don't spend extra money! But seriously, I buy the off brands sometime and quite often prefer them to the brand named ones.

  4. I love it any time when you see two varieties and get them both!! Too funny, but too bad you didn't have two 50 cent coupons. You could have had all that fun for free!!

  5. I didn't know they still made V05 shampoo. Guess I just grab my Dove Cucumber and Green Tea and go without looking at the other brands.

  8. Wow! Even shampoo with tea. Does that mean I can have tea and wash my hair at the same time?
