Ion Stain Barrier Crème Review


Hey guys! Just wanted to share a quick review of Ion's Stain Barrier Crème. I picked this up... gosh I don't even know how long ago it was. I think almost a year ago actually, and I kinda forgot about it for a while LOL but I've been using it lately and I really like it! I admit that most of the time I color my hair I just use Vaseline instead of barrier cream, but I find that it doesn't always work (especially with darker/no-lift colors), plus it's kind of a pain to get off.

Anyways, Wednesday night I triple glazed my hair using red colors and after I rinsed out my color each time I didn't have a spot of color on me thanks to this barrier cream! It does have a pretty thick consistency, so make sure you just get it on your hairline and not your hair! I accidentally got some on the sides of my front hairline during the first glaze and I noticed that the color didn't take as well in those spots, so do be careful.

For something as simple as barrier cream, it is actually pretty moisturizing, and even smells good! Kinda fruity, maybe like.. bananas? Hahaha I'm so bad with scents, sorry! The point is, it smells good (to me at least) and it works!. I highly recommend this to all the haircolor DIY divas out there. ;-)

Ion Stain Barrier Crème is available at Sally's for $3.99 ($2.99 if you have a Sally card) and comes in a 50 mL / 1.69 fl oz. tube. As always, please comment and share your thoughts if you use this, or if you use something else that you love! I look forward to reading everyone's comments. :D Take care of your hair everyone!

Thanks for this. I've always been intrigued by barrier creams since I color my own hair and it's such a pain to wipe the color from behind my ears, etc. But I have always been afraid of using one since I'm scared that the product will break me out. Did you experience any breakouts with this one? Thanks love! xo

Hey girl! The base is pretty heavy, and probably is comedogenic, but I have oily/acne prone skin and I didn't break out at all. I guess it's because it's only on your face for such a short time, and if it doesn't come off when you shampoo your hair, a little soap and warm water will get the rest off.

Thanks hon! This helps a lot and I think, since it didn't make your skin act up, I'm more willing to give it a chance. :)
