Review: Batiste Floral Dry Shampoo

It is no secret that Batiste Dry Shampoo is an absolute staple product for me. I use it loads. Not every day, but nearly. It’s instant refresh means I can wash my fine wispy long hair less often, and means I don’t have to worry about helmet hair! This is the latest incarnation of my

(It’s a Good Job) Beauty is Only Skin Deep

Back in January I made a very important New Year Resolution. I promised that I would be true to myself. I said that I would think about what I really wanted, and strive to get it. I said I would consider carefully who I was, and aim to be like that all the time. Most

Review: John Frieda Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner

The other day a friend commented on my hair – she asked if I’d had it dyed, saying it looked lighter and brighter. I thanked her and explained that no, I haven’t had my hair done for a very long time, but I had started using a new shampoo and conditioner that is designed to

Review: Power Support Crystal Film Set

I’ve had a number of generations of the iPhone over the past few years (I know, I’m very lucky), and each time I buy a new one my main concern is keeping it in perfect condition so that I can enjoy the screen and that retina display for as long as possible. I know many

Dove Colour Radiance (Bzz Review)

I am a BzzAgent and this is a Bzz Review…  As someone who colours her hair, I invited to take part in a new Bzz campaign for Dove Colour Radiance Shampoo and Conditioner. I was sent a bottle of each to try at home along with some samples and vouchers to share with friends. I

Batiste Paisley and Graffiti

Regular readers of Splodz Blogz will know that I am a fan of Batiste, and I don’t mind telling you again. The (lovely) dry shampoo company has recently released two new scents, and I was very pleased to receive a tin of each in the post to try out when I got back from my

Refresh Your Hair Without Water – Batiste

Regular readers of Splodz Blogz will know I like and use Batiste Dry Shampoo – I’ve reviewed several of the fragrances.

It helps make your

mypure Review – Essential Epil

I’ve been trying my latest product from mypure for a couple of months.  Essential Epil is a “hair growth inhibitor and skin glorifier” by Acorelle.  The blurb on the box says that it reduces hair density by 80% in 56 days, indicating that hair growth is delayed and hairs are finer and fewer… leaving skin “lovelier”.

mypure Review – Living Nature Nourishing Shampoo

For my February mypure review, I decided to test the Living Nature Nourishing Shampoo, which is £14.99 and designed for dry/normal hair. http://www.mypure.co.uk/living-nature-b87/nourishing-natural-shampoo-p583 I have tried Living Nature shampoo before (see here) and while I really liked the products, I found that I needed to use a lot in order to get good results.  And

Coloured Batiste

A couple of weeks ago Batiste sent me a can of each of their new coloured dry shampoo range to test and tell Splodz Blogz readers what I thought.  As you know, I am a fan of dry shampoo anyway, and at the end of my last blog post about Batiste I said I was

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Haircare

A quick review for you here… I got sent a sample of Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo and Conditioner (for normal hair) with my last Liz Earle order (I generally use Liz Earle skincare when I’m not testing anything else). It’s actually very difficult to test a product thoroughly with just one use, which is

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I have fine blonde hair which needs washing daily.  In fact sometimes it even needs washing again before a night out.  It’s a right pain.  And as a result I’ve been an avid user of Batiste dry shampoo for a long time.  It’s great for refreshing my hair between washes – perfect when I get
