Kao Asience Shine Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner

I have been trying quite a few Japanese haircare items recently among them the Shine Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner from Kao Asience as they were some of the few Japanese haircare products available on Sasa.

I tried the Inner Rich series from Asience before and while I liked them the smell was just not nice.

Asience was especially developed for Asian hair but that doesn´t stop me from using their stuff =)

The Shine Therapy range is for permed/dyed/seriously damaged hair and contains 50% more "Repair & Revitalize Essence".
Some key ingredients are soybean and pearl essence, Korean ginseng, Camellia (Tsubaki) oil and Eucalyptus essence.

Now the shampoo and conditioner are of excellent quality and very rich and creamy in texture so they make my hair very shiny and soft. I have to admit I am still not fond of the scent as it´s a very strong unpleasant harsh herbal scent.
After drying my hair just keeps a light herbal scent which smells quite nice so I like the shampoo & conditioner set altogether and would repurchase. However I still prefer my Kose Salon Style set as it delivers the same result (super silky soft hair) but smells sooooo good!

I got both items from Sasa for about US$7/each. You can also get these on eBay.
I got the smaller bottles (220ml/each) but you can also purchase the jumbo bottles (half liter/each?)
