UG reminds me of Boots

Just sayin'. I was trying to figure out what the pearly pink Umberto Giannini Curl & Twirl cond'r reminded me of.... and it's Boots! Not the scent, but what it does. I left 75% of it in, and it gave me the same results as Boots curling creme -- without the sticky, gummy residue feeling that Boots caused, that I always disliked. Anyway, those of you who loved Boots & have a Rite Aid nearby might want to try the UG either as a cond, or simply as a styler cream.

    Wow - I already wanted this just as a condish, and now I reeeeeeeeally want it! :lol: Never used boots, but it sounds good.

    I will get this, for sure - and I'll update when I do.
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    Hi CelticCurls,

    I did a search as I am still looking for replacements for my two favorite stylers that I can no longer get (Boots and Qhemet Karite Nut Curl Cream)

    Anyway I saw your post and googled the UG to see where else I might find it since there is no Walgrens near me. Well, I find that this is being discontinued here in the US -just like Boots &^#$()$%u&+.

    This time I didn't even get to try it before it was taken away from me so I am sure it would have worked for me! :roll:

    Here's the exact wording:

    Get it while you can... Umberto's line is being pulled from... More the United States, and will only be available in Europe. Buy it here while we still have it... But hurry up, it won't last!Need rescuing ...



    And heres the link where I found it:

    Wanted to let you know.

    Its being discontinued? I love the smell of that stuff. I've used it before and was planning on using it again the next time I bought condish! Why bother now??
