Aiyo i went ion sephora also dun have k gravel. Not fated LOL

but i saw that hdf changed their quicksand. Now green colour one.



And gravity paste as an extremely strong mint scent. Like some extra strong mentos.
I think the greenish quick sand is like last year stocks. There was quite a bit of hoo ha regarding it on qoo10 back then. Can check the manufacturing date at the bottom, probably that's why they use it as tester since old stock.

Oh! TGR is a local barbershop right. The tin being used as packaging looks strangely familiar. @those familiar with the MIC saga, do take a look. Haha I have a feeling its the same product.

Daaaaimmmm same exact tin hahaha. But the insides look very diff. Seems like very similar to the blumaan product.

Come to think of it... The hdf gravity paste might be the same thing as blumaan. Now that i recall it kinda smelled and felt the same. Didn't actually apply on hair tho, feel feel with fingers only.

Gravity Paste smells like Colgate to me.

I don't think it's the same though. Blumaan doesn't come out of the jar as easily as Gravity Paste.

YA!! both like colgate! haha!

i'd like to think that perhaps your blumaan is one of those that dried out a bit? remember there was the saga where they couldnt be bothered with using a proper sealing lid.

Yaaaaas bro. I read somewhere online that Original by blumaan and HDF gravity paste have almost identical ingredient lists. Although I haven't compared the lists myself, I wouldn't write that off as they look, feel, smell and perform almost exactly the same. I got a feeling that the lab which cooks both brand's products are one and the same. Won't ignore the fact that both products were released within months of each other.

My theory: Final formulation of the product was already set and ready to be distributed by the lab during that period. The different release dates might have been due to minor differences between the brands' demands for the product / or an attempt to not release one product at too close a date to the other - which might potentially affect sales.

Besides the ingredients list, I think the products have one other thing in common: They both disappoint. For myself, and for quite alot of people based on what I see online.

when i smell the gravity paste, i thought of blumaan.

pretty much disappointing to many people but there are people who likes it.

goes to show that different product fits the bill for different people.

so slowly try and get the one you actually like.

Seems like both products only work for angmoh hair.

Worse?

The over-$30 price tag. There are way better options at the price.
