Herbal Essences Touchable Moisture and Touchable Smooth

In March, Herbal essences released the brand new Japan Series in Singapore - Touchable Moisture (purple) and Touchable Smooth that promises to sweeten our day by waking up our senses in the morning.

With a formula straight from Japan, the new Herbal Essences Japan Series will keep our hair feeling smoother, smelling amazing and more hydrated all day and every day.

Containing 8 types of naturally-derived active ingredients, including rapeseed oil, palm oil and coconut oil, the new Herbal Essences from Japan range consists of the Touchable Smooth range and the Touchable Moisture range. Both of which includes a shampoo, conditioner and intensive treatment.

Due to added ingredients such as rapeseed oil, the treatment capability of the Herbal Essences from Japan Series has been improved significantly, relative to previous Herbal Essences formulas. The renewed formula works to deliver hair care and treatment ingredients directly and more effectively, thus improving the final smooth finish to the hair.

With a multi-layered hair treatment akin to Millefeuille, the new Touchable Smooth and Touchable Moisture ranges delivers treatment to hair while repairing it all at once. Derived from rapeseed oil contributes to the "gel network" structure that delivers the treatment effect.

 Herbal Essences Touchable Smooth Shampoo
Price : SD$5.90 (160ml)

Ingredients list

  • The consistency of the shampoo was light and watery
  • foam up well with water, easy to spread and lather into the hair without much "pulling"
  • Hair feel clean and soft. 
  • does weight down my hair a bit (cos of my heavy oily hair) .. 
  • doesn't cause any irritation to my scalp
  • Oil control wise was pretty average as my scalp will oil up the next day
  • The scent last pretty well on the hair, I still can smell it the next day (not too sure whether my scalp stink anot.. but my hair doesn't... lolx)
  • Hair ends doesn't feel too drying and it does help to make hair look smooth and soft

The shampoo made my scalp feel nice that I go and get the bigger bottle... kekekeke~

  Herbal Essences Touchable Smooth
Price : SD$5.90 (160ml)

Ingredients list

The conditioner was pretty light, as in doesn't feel too oil when I first apply onto my hair, rinse off easily.

Doesn't feel too heavy on my oily hair, complicated scalp (sometimes dry, sometimes oily and most of the time quite sensitive!)

Hair does feel smoother and easy to manage.

 Herbal Essences Touchable Smooth Intensive treatment
Price : SD$12 (200g)

Ingredients list

Because of my oily hair, I hardly do any treatment (as in masking my hair)... normally I will use the treatment like the way I use conditioner.. but I leave it on for about 30secs to 60secs instead of rinsing off after applying.

The treatment is a little bit thicker as compare to their conditioner - similar texture but feel more richer. Hair feel really smooth, soft and sleek.

I prefer the treatment.. cos my hair ends feel really smooth and hydrated (not as drying).
Doesn't irritated my scalp (normally I don't apply conditioner nor treatment beside shampoo on my scalp)

Overall, I do enjoy using the whole range, but I can do without the conditioner or treatment as my hair was not drying to being with (except the hair ends) ... my sister has very dry hair and scalps and she love the intensive treatment.
