I am going to put it right out there and tell you that after many years in the beauty industry, I have a, shall we say, healthy amount of skepticism about most products that come across my desk. Every day I see a new “must-have” launch that promises to solve every problem, and I call BS on most of them. But hey, I’m not here to complain or call anyone out. I am here to champion the products I truly love and want to share with you all. Which brings me to L’Oréal’s Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water.
First of all, what a name, right? Wonder Water: I’m intrigued. Eight seconds? That's much more doable than the 20 minutes that most hair masks suggest.
After hearing a veteran beauty editor gush about it over breakfast earlier this year, I got myself a bottle to test it out at home. Again, we are a skeptical crowd, so I took her recommendation seriously. Plus, she has thick, textured hair (not unlike mine), and on that particular morning it looked especially smooth and shiny.
