Upfront Cosmetics Shampoo Bar Review
A Review of the Goods
Since falling for the HiBar shampoo bar, we’ve been on the lookout for other solid shampoos that might fit the bill. With the shower residue issue resolved by a little wooden box, the only hoops to jump through now were finding the best products. With Upfront Cosmetics, we hit the jack pot.
This shampoo bar lathers up nicely, leaving a clean—but not squeaky—feel. The all natural scents are subtle and light. Upfront claims the bars will replace 3 bottles of shampoo each, but they don’t specify the size of said replaced bottles. At $13 per bar, we imagine it will replace about a bottle and a half of the standardish 13 oz bottle.
Upfront separates their bars by your hair’s needs, with a few new categories thrown in. There’s of course a color protect bar and a nourishing blend, but they added in things like a nurturing bar for sensitive and young hair, and our favorite, a “refreshing” blend that CUTS DOWN ON THE NEED TO WASH YOUR HAIR ALL TOGETHER. So perhaps the 3 bottle per bar claim is true!
You heard us right. They created a bar specifically meant to be used less. And it works! I’m a gal that gets greasy after 26 hours without a wash, and this stuff has cut my washes in half. Others have said it’s gotten them down to one shampoo every 3-4 days. If that doesn’t sell you on the Upfront Cosmetics shampoo bar, just check out their ingredients.
