Most Helpful Positive



This reminds me of a professional keratin treatment - hair is smooth the next day with absolutely nil frizz! I love that you don't need to wash it out. Super convenient.

Most Helpful Criticism



Comparing this to the Shu Uemura universal balm, this works better as a styling product, whereas the balm works better to improve the overall hair health. The balms first ingredient is coconut oil whereas the oil in this one is quite low down the list.

  2. Great


    This serum is just amazing. It significantly improve my frizzy dry hair. I use it three times a week and it works wonder on my hair. Love it.
  3. This overnight serum is like a pill for your hair


    This product is an absolute favourite of mine. I have fine below shoulder hair that is coloured and 12 months ago it was always breaking and dry and frizzy but since using this my hair has repaired itself and my hairdresser confirms the quality of my hair has improved so much...i use it overnight as a repair serum as directed and over time it has helped my hair. I am in my 50s and are now taking b...

  4. Excellent serum for frizzy hairs


    verified purchaser
    I have really frizzy hairs after washed, this product definitely help to control my volume frizzy hairs, and my hairs feel much smoother next morning and easy to manage and styling. Is expensive but it’s worth and I will repurchase again.
  5. Hasn’t done much


    This hasn’t really helped my hair, it doesn’t make it feel nice either. Really wanted to love this but oh well
  6. Very happy and great bnb results


    I got this as gift with my order ..each night i apply it to my oily frizzy hair ..wokeup next morning with very silky hair and non greasy feeling .. I will buy it again
  7. It doesn’t do anything to my hair.


    verified purchaser
    I have been using it for over a month now and it just doesn’t do anything to my hair, I can’t see any difference. Waste of money.
  8. Okay

  9. Perfect for fine thin hair! Smells amazing!


    I have fine thin hair and suffer from at times oily greasy hair with dandruff and very dry ends from dying my hair ash blonde (I’m naturally a dark brunette) my hair was so damaged!
    I received a sample of this and used it and fell in love. The next day my hair had no residue and felt soft and supple, it didn’t weigh my hair down either. I bought a bottle as soon as I ran out of the sample....

  10. Smells really good


    Smells really good but not sure if it does anything to my hair, it makes it smooth but unfortunate hasn’t helped my frizz
  11. Game changer


    I love leaving products to soak in over night but didn’t want the commitment of having to wash every day.
    This product honestly won’t leave your hair oily and will leave no tell tale signs that you had a treatment in the night before!
    Worth every cent
  12. Beautiful product


    The Shu Uemura overnight serum always leaves my hair more hydrated in the morning. I have also used it before blow waving with the same result, like all of the Shu products, they never seem to weigh down my very fine damaged hair, I feel they always are well absorbed and I feel like they actually work rather than just sitting on top of my hair. A must have for damaged hair!
  13. Life saver for damaged hair


    I received this in special once. And it couldnt have come at a better time. I am naturally brunette however I have found a few greys. I have said, as soon as I see greys, I will go blonde and eventually embrace the grey hair lol
    Well....I bleached bathed my hair with a trusted hairdresser, she did a fantastic job but I noticed when my hair was wet, the strands of hair were extremly fragile (...

  14. Great fit fine hair


    I have fine hair, with oily roots but dry ends. This product is a cream, but very light. I use it on dry hair but find if I use it after I have dried my hair straight, it makes my hair kink so I now only use it after I have let my hair dry naturally and in the morning, it’s lovely and soft. Gives beautiful shine without it looking oily. Makes hair soft and manageable.
  15. Best overnight serum!


    I apply this serum every two nights when I wash my hair and when I wake up my hair feels soft, beautiful and fresh. I used to lose a lot of hair and it was usually very dry. I use the shampoo and the mask once a week as well. Seriously, this brand changed my hair for good!
  16. Underwhelming


    I have dry bleached thick frizzy hair. I tried this and was hopeful of good results from reading the reviews, but I wasn't that impressed. It smells great, and it did make my hair shinier, but it didn't feel any better or less frizzy.
  17. Great for bleached hair!


    I bleached my black hair 5+ times in less than a month and even though it’s a nice blonde, it’s pretty damaged.
    My amazing hairdresser recommended this and I got it as part of the pack from here with the Ultinate Reset.
    I use it every night and I can honestly say I feel my dry ends becoming more nourished, manageable, shiny and looking more healthy.
    I don’t style it in the mor...

  18. Tames frizz


    After using too much dry shampoo or over working my hair during the week, I pop a little Overnight Serum in my hair to smooth it all out. It's not oily so I tend to leave it in for a few days and the results are great! I often have oily roots and dry ends, and this product balances them out. Certainly tames the frizz without heaviness or oiliness.
  19. Beauty sleep in a bottle


    Big fan of this overnight serum. I have fine hair and love how it feels in the morning after sleeping with this in. My hair is much less frizzy and a whole lot shiner!
  20. Zero frizz for real


    I think I am in love with Shu uemura brand as a whole but talking about this product, I just wanna say that if you want zero frizz in your hair then this product is for you. No kidding, this product is the reason why I have gathered confidence to wear my hair curly :) I have been getting compliments wherever I go and all thanks to this product. Now I have hair with no frizz and hair which are supe...

  21. Best overnight hair mask


    I love this for my hair as it's very fine and quite damaged on the ends, and I'm trying not to use any heat on my hair so it helps it looks a little more sleek and styled when I wake up in the mornings. My hair is also soft and less frizzy when I wake up in the morning and it's super lightweight and doesn't weigh down my fine hair. I haven't tried the oil version but its definitely next on my list...

  22. Alright


    I was excited to try this due to the glowing reviews but I didn’t see many results with this product. I have thick, straight frizzy hair that’s very dry. It helps with moisturisation slightly but I haven’t seen any of the benefits it’s touting. My hair is still dry and unruly so I will continue my hunt for a product that will help! Smells amazing though.


    This product is by far the most amazing product I have ever used on my bleached, long and thick hair!! I was struggling with frizz and dryness and had tried several products which all had good results but not great. Then i tried Shu Eumura Essence Absolue Overnight Serum and let me tell you, my hair is so soft, so moisturised and ZERO frizz. I can not rate this product highly enough. It is worth e...

  24. WOW


    This stuff is AMAZING, after just one use i have gorgeous, 95% frizz free hair despite it being damaged from bleaching. The higher price tag is 1000% worth it. I'm not entirely sure if it's as a result of using this product but the natural wave in my hair seems to be enhanced since using it. Can not rate this high enough A MUST BUY!!!
  25. Wonderful product


    This product has changed my hair into wonderful soft and silky hair with little or no effort. Fantastic product for anyone with dry or coarse hair.
  26. Great product!


    Beautifully scented product which leaves my hair healthy and gleaming with every use. Not too heavy and definitely works wonders.
  27. Love!


    After receiving a sample of this product, I very quickly jumped online and purchased an entire bottle. Not only does it nourish my hair without weighing it down, but it also smells great too!
  28. Great for dry/coarse hair


    I have quite dry/difficult to manage hair. This serum is very hydrating, and my hair definitely feels smoother and frizz-free and more manageable the next morning. I think this is product that would be worthwhile for others with similar hair type, however I'm not sure how much benefit it would be for people that do not have such hair troubles.
  29. Wow


    I love my hair when using this. It leaves it so smooth and less frizz. I got a sample and I really want to buy the full size!
  30. Frizz free and fabulous


    Oh my god! This is sensational on my fine bleached blonde hair. It settles it all down and keeps the frizz away for three days after washing. Feels absolutely amazing while in the hair too! Smooths my hair beautifully
  31. It's okay.


    This is okay and smells nice but I've used much cheaper products in the past that have delivered the same results. It's not a bad product, just not worth the money.
  32. Great for Winter


    I got this as a sample and I'm honestly so convinced that I need to buy a full product of this serum! My hair never felt so soft and smooth the very next day. It's been 3 days since using it and my hair still feels amazing!
