My order was shipped within the timeframe that was stated on the site. In addition, I made a mistake with my address and email them about it and it was rectified and they even updated me about my order prior to shipping which I appreciated.
It lathers very well and gives kind of luxurious feeling.
Cleans well without being harsh, though it is a bit much in high concentration for people with dry or damaged hair. Bonus: It smells better than the same INCI name and concentration product I've bought elsewhere, too.
