SAILOR MOON R PRISM POWER SHAMPOO!
I bought this a long time ago at a now-out-of-business store in the Bay Area for something really stupid (I think like $5). The seal was cracked, so I decided to do a review! Let’s see how Sailor Moon shampoo holds up!
Right off the bat, the label is hilarious. It specifies that this is Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R Prism Power Shampoo, and off to the side it says (roughly translated) “Shiiiiny hair, MAKE UP!”. Just as expected from Sailor Moon products!
Let’s take a look at the back.
You can’t see it well here, but this ancient paper label on the top is heavily yellowed around the edges. Or was. I tried to take it off…. It took me about 15 minutes and there is now a dent in my fingernail from the scraping. But now we can get a clear look at the back!
Product name here appears to be Bandai Rinse In L, and the Sailor Senshi are telling you on the back (translation by maxiburger) that “Let’s make everybody else pretty too, okay?” How adorable! Looking at the copyright info….
Wait a sec.
Oh my god.
This shampoo is old enough to vote. This shampoo could order a cocktail at a bar next year. This shampoo is older than about 75% of tumblr. My hopes for this product are sinking, fast.
So let’s test it in my hand at the sink!
Pop it open…
It’s hard to photograph, and I’m sorry for this horrible view of my hands all distorted, but this shampoo has about the consistency of water, and is aggressively pink. It’s like rose water or something, except it has a very soapy smell, kind of like unscented dish soap. Watery and soap-scented? LOW EXPECTATIONS.
It still lathers OK, though, so….
No pictures, so a written description will have to do. Important fact: I have a rather unusual hair type. It’s very fine but in MASSIVE quantities. It’s prone to flyaways and sitting on my head like a helmet, and it’s hard to find shampoo that helps my hair be any better. A problem I often face is getting shampoo distributed through the roots of my hair and towards my scalp can be tricky, and Sailor Moon R Prism Power Shampoo is not very good at this. It took me about two minutes and a third of the bottle (as well as a lot of strategic water distribution) to get my scalp cleaned. Oh no! Luckily for me, the “soapy” smell goes away very quickly. My hair, dried, currently smells like… nothing. Like hair, maybe with a slight soap undertone. It isn’t nearly as bad as I was expecting. (To be fair, what I was expecting was to write this review and take a photo and immediately hop in the shower again and pour nicely-scented conditioner all over my head to repair the damage done.)
Get out of the shower, put on some clothes, style my hair a bit, and here’s the result!
Awful trying-to-take-my-own-face-photo-with-a-phone photo aside…the result isn’t too bad, actually! My hair is about as shiny as normal, it’s fluffy enough that I had to tame it with a flatiron, but on the whole this is actually slightly better than some cheap-ass shampoos I’ve found in motels. If there were an Anime Apocalypse and the only supplies of any sort that we could use were licensed character goods, I’d stock my bathroom with Sailor Moon R Prism Power Shampoo and Evangelion razors.
Overall: 6/10. Not wonderful, but not terrible quality. Still works after 20 years. Good job, Bandai character goods department!
Still, I feel like that photo is missing something. I just washed my entire head with anime. That picture is too… normal.
THERE WE GO. NOW I LOOK LIKE I WASHED MY HEAD IN ANIME. AND IF YOU USE SAILOR MOON R PRISM POWER SHAMPOO and some photoshop YOU TOO CAN LOOK THIS KAWAII.
God bless you, Diana

Awesome to hear! Anyone know if any stores are/will be selling the improved version for certain?
http://www.circlered.com will have the new Version they said on their facebook page!
Wow, that was fast! Neat! Unfortunately, circlered doesn’t ship outside the US/Canada, but good news for those Moonies! :)
I totally volunteer to ship merch to non-North American Moonies, like not even a problem (provided you cover most of the shipping costs)
WHAT THE FUCK MERCH THAT I’VE NEVER FUCKING SEEN ANYWHERE? I didn’t even know the distributor had a website until now! There are also a million stickers and phone charms. In other news my mom has a wholesale license
