A few weeks ago I completed a full product review [+] on the Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream. Last week I decided to order during KBBs flash sale since Super Duper was the freebie. Today I finally got the product and boy am I surprised! I opened the jar to find a product not of the same consistency as the jar I’d bought locally or the sample I got from my bff, KayJay. #RealTalk I had to look at the label to make sure I got the right product.
I understand there are variances in product texture and color when dealing with natural ingredients, but this is a significantly noticeable difference. It looks like a completely different product. Completely.
The above product’s consistency is more of a spongy, clumpy, grainy, wet cream. This was the texture of the product I used for my original product review.
The consistency of the above is very rich, creamy, and smooth. It reminds me of the texture of QB’s Alma & Olive Cream. I haven’t seen KBB in my local Target, but this jar appears to have updated packaging. Could this be the consistency of the products found in Target stores? Did this melt and re-solidify? Is this what the product looks like with intense mixing?
I haven’t used the product just yet to determine if the performance is similar for both products. I know some may argue that the same ingredients and recipe should yield the same results, but I look at it this way — when baking bread, you may have all of the same ingredients in two different batches of bread, but if you knead one more than the other, both breads will look AND taste differently from each other.
The verdict is still out. Stay tuned!
