With it being my birthday last month, I got a double points voucher so took the chance to buy a few hair bits from Boots as I was running seriously low! It wasn’t an overly exciting haul but thought I’d share it with you non the less!
Batiste – how do people live life without this? I honestly use this at least once every couple of days and couldn’t go on without it. I love the powdery texture it has as it it makes my hair feel cleaner – I can’t hack those ‘invisible’ shampoos which basically feel like hairspray.
Aussie Miracle Moisture Shampoo is a staple in our house hold. I’ve got very dry frizzy hair and this makes it feel gorgeously smooth and soft! I really do like this but this bottle didn’t last very long at all! The scent is beautiful though, and you get a nice waft of it when you swish your hair. Aussie Three Minute Miracle – you’d be wrong for assuming this is for me. Whilst I love this product, I don’t get a look in when its in the shower. Chris LOVES this for his beard. He is very high maintenance with his beard care and is more than happy to turn his nose up at ‘cheap’ shampoos which don’t suit his requirements.
Flexitol Heel Balm is another staple in my house. I genuinely have some of the driest body skin in the world (nice I know..) so I have to work quite hard on maintaining any kind of softness, especially on my feet. With it being summer time now I’ve been slathering this on my feet every night with a pair of fluffy socks (yes I’m that person who sleeps in socks…) and wake up with the softest heels known to man. I have tried every foot balm on the market but this really is the best one for me. Super heavy duty and very very effective.
I’ve recently become obsessed with Lydia of Lydia Elise Millen fame and she recently recommended the L’oreal Botanical Shampoo and Conditioner – I picked up the Safflower variation which is for dry hair. She has the most beautiful long locks and said that these new offerings from L’oreal helped her natural waves be more defined with no extra work. As I mentioned earlier I have very dry hair, which is naturally quite ‘big’. Its got a slight wave but its more bushy than wavy. I’ve used this a couple of times and it is very lightweight on the hair, and leaves it super soft. I don’t think it has helped my natural wave be more defined, but it has a really light texture which has meant I’ve been able to go longer between washes which is always a bonus. This is more on the pricey end for shampoo (I think it cost me £10+ for these both) but I’m getting to the stage where I’ll pay whatever I need to in order to find something that works well!
That’s all I picked up this time, but I’m really pleased with every thing I got so far. I’m really trying to find the perfect shampoo at the moment so any suggestions would be much appreciated!
