Intelligent Nutrients Jasminas and Finishing Gloss

It might seem strange to combine a hair product review with a fragrance review, but in the world of Intelligent Nutrients, it makes perfect sense. All of their products are made to be used all over the body, even in the hair. Multi-use is encouraged throughout their website and I have taken them up on their recommendation as I use their Jasminas fragrance in my hair, and their Finishing Gloss on my skin.

Jasminas is a big name to live up to in my opinion. Of course a fragrance with such a name should be jasmine based and therefore somewhat bold, but I want it easy to wear. So kudos for Jasminas. Not only did it meet my expectations, but exceeded them as well. Jasminas is a terrifically audacious scent, bursting with juicy jasmine sambac in a macadamia seed oil base. It luxuriously smooths onto the skin and exudes the signature spicy, citrusy floral redolence of this tiny blossom which is also known as pikake if you are in Hawaii. Like a fresh lei of jasmine sambac around your neck, Jasminas swirls around your body as you move, delivering you to a warmer and more relaxing climate.

Add a few drops in your hand ¬†along with a pump of Intelligent Nutrients Finishing Gloss, and Jasmina’s scent will linger throughout the day in your softly smoothed hair. The Finishing Gloss includes a blend of jojoba oil, sesame oil, shea butter and beeswax which is a potent mix, so only a pea-sized pump or two is needed to tame my long curly-wavy-frizz prone hair. I use one pump if my hair is already dry and I want a polished pony-tail, and two pumps distributed evenly throughout my wet hair for supple waves. The scent is a mild sesame/neroli combo and I let any leftover product absorb into my hands, as the hydrating ingredients work just as well on the skin as it does the hair. I’m loving this feel-good, smell-good multi-tasking!


Intelligent Nutrients was founded by Horst M. Rechelbacher, the creator of Aveda which he sold to Estee Lauder in 1997. He continued consulting for Aveda until 2003 when he focused on creating Intelligent Nutrients, a company dedicated to using 100% food-based and organic certified ingredients.

Intelligent Nutrients Finishing Gloss is $29 for 1.7 oz, Jasminas is $45 for 11mls. Available at SpritBeautyLounge.

  1. I liked the Finishing Gloss very much, although I didn’t get on so well with the Leave-In Conditioner I tried. It’s a shame this line isn’t sold in the UK now – it was in SpaceNK for a year or two, then they dropped it.

    By the way, my husband just bought me the Roxana Illuminated Perfume Q solid perfume. I adore it. So grounding and calming. Thank you for introducing me to this brand, even if you have started a lot of lemmings!

    Have a good weekend. x

    • I had a similar experience with the IN Leave-In Conditioner. It wasn’t that it was bad, but didn’t do much for my thick, coarse hair. I’ve wondered if it might be better for those with fine hair? But the Finishing Gloss is wonderful!

      I am so glad you are enjoying Roxana’s Q. How lovely of your husband to treat you to such a thoughtful gift! :-)

      All the best,
      Trish
