Trevor Sorbie Colour Protect Conditioner*
All of the Trevor Sorbie hair products I have tried have been of the highest collection, and this conditioner from the Salon X-Clusive range is no exception. It left my hair super smooth, aided with detangling my hair, and also helped to prolong my hair colour. Definitely a winner.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Shampoo
Another product which is an essential for those with highlighted or bleached hair, the purple tones of this tone corrector shampoo help to counteract the brassy tones that you can sometimes get with bleaching your hair. It's been a number of years now since I had a full head of bleached blonde hair, but this product worked wonders for it. Since having my hair highlighted recently, this shampoo has really helped to keep my colour looking fresh.
Phil Smith Big It Up Volume Boosting Conditioner*
Another hair product which I have been extremely impressed by, the Big It Up range does what it says on the tin so to speak, and adds plenty of volume. The effect I get from this is similar to adding volume powder to my hair when dry, and there is no chance of getting a brush or a comb through my hair once I have applied this conditioner, so I tended to use it before a night out for plenty of volume.
Kerastase Resistance Fibre Arichitecte*
Another brilliant product, this Fibre Architect has worked wonders at adding some moisture back into my split ends and dry hair. A very small amount goes a long way, which is fortunate given the high RRP of this product (circa £35). I would love to invest in this, but I can't justify the higher price tag.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Medium & Brunette*
I have tried various dry shampoos over the last few years, but none beat the quality of Batiste. Over the last few months I have been trying to re-train my hair from daily washing to washing every two to three days. For the first month or so my hair looked horrendously greasy on the in between days, but Batiste has been my life-saver!
HK Je t'Adore Shampoo & Conditioner
This duo came in a recent Glossybox, and I have to say I didn't notice anything special about this shampoo and conditioner at all. I do enjoy receiving shampoo and conditioner samples, as they will always get used, but this was a brand I have never used before and trying these out has not made me want to scope out anymore products from the brand.
Benefit So Hooked On Carmella Eau DeToilette
This has to be my absolute favourite fragrance of all time, and one of very few that I have actually re-purchased. I get so many compliments when wearing this, and the sickly sweet smell of vanilla, caramel and chocolate are right up my street.
Greenland Raspberry Shower Gel*
This shower gel came from a very handy little set from Greenland, and it smells absolutely divine! I never buy shower gel, so I rely on using up samples from beauty boxes and the like, so was pleased to give this shower gel a go. I got a good number of uses from it and I would definitely repurchase, given how delicious it smells!
Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash
In contrast to the Greenland shower gel, I really did not like this body wash from Balance Me. It did not smell at all nice, the texture of the wash was all lumpy, and I did not actually seem overly effective.
Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor
I was a little bit disgruntled to see this razor in a fairly recent Glossybox, but I thought I'd give it a go anyway. The first use was an absolute delight - the built-in conditioning bar (much like a bar of soap attached to the head of the razor) gave me the closest shave and softest legs to date. However, after that one use the conditioning bar crumbled away, and the more it is used the more it gets worn down, and therefore it doesn't lie flat to your legs and give you the conditioning effect it is meant to. So, great for one or two uses but completely redundant after that. What a waste of money!
Neal & Wolf Shampoo & Conditioner*
A really great shampoo and conditioner duo, the Neal & Wolf products always leave my hair silky soft and tangle-free.
Macadamia Deep Repair Masque*
This is my first experience with the Macadamia products. Despite having plenty of products lying around, I tend to go for bottles before sachets. However, this deep repair masque is fantastic! I got two full uses from this one sachet, and I only need to use it once a week. Fortunately I have quite a few more of these sachets to use up.
Superdrug Facial Cleansing Wipes
My wipes of choice, simply due to how cheap and easy to get hold of they are. I buy these in bulk and always have a plentiful stash nearby.
Givenchy Very Irresistible Eau De Toilette
Another Glossybox sample, I wasn't overly fussed either way about this Givenchy perfume. It didn't leave a lasting impression on me and the scent wasn't anything to write home about.
