I picked up the tea tree mint shampoo because I love the color of the penguin shaped bottle and anything that has to do with green tea. First, the shampoo has a slightly milky but predominately gel like texture and a faint yellowish green color that doesn't look overly artificial, actually it kind of reminds me of ...snot. (Well, that's a good start.)
While the texture doesn't bother me too much, the scent kind of does, as it smells like peppermint candy. I generally prefer candy made in Asian countries because they are prettier, more fun eat and not sickeningly sweet so a shampoo smell like something I don't eat is a bit of a turn off. Unlike those really natural shampoo, this bubbles quite easily which had me worried a bit as I always associate ample bubbles with itchy scalp afterward.
And for your record, it did itch...I guess peppermint oil only works well on lip balm...Anyway, I don't like how it smell either so I guess I will try different scent from the Vitamin shampoo line next time.
