There seem to be so many beauty boxes doing the rounds at the minute, and to be honest I've gotten a bit bored of them. As a whole, I think that the idea behind them is fab, and I've had some interesting products that I would never have otherwise tried before, but I've also received a fair few products that I've had no interest in at all. That's not to say that I think the products are completely rubbish, they're just not to my taste. And whilst I did miss receiving the boxes initially, I think I've gotten over them. Whilst I was getting the boxes there were a couple of products that really stood out for me, and the product that I wanted to tell you about today is most definitely my number one beauty box product:
Before receiving this product, in my Boudoir Prive box a few months ago, I'd never even heard of Sachajuan and I'm not going to deny my complete inability to pronounce the brand name. yup, it's firmly in my list of unpronounceable brand names, alongside L'Occitane and Illamasqua! Gosh, they're also brand names that I have to really pay attention when attempting to spell them too!
Just ditch the yucky coloured bottle, and we'll get along fine!
With regards to the products lid, I'm in two minds about it.
My solution has been to keep the product upside down all the time, but it's not really practical because obviously that makes it wobbly!
So, you can imagine my delight at how light the fragrance is of this conditioner. Of course it still contains a lot of chemicals, unfortunately most products do, but at least the smell isn't overpowering on my little nose.
And you know how some products just have that smell of being "expensive" or, I don't know a little better than other brands, well I got that feeling from the smell of this. I don't know if it's the smell of quality, because I don't think I'd have a clue what that smelt like, and I'm certainly no expert. I just think that some products have this smell that indicates they cost more money. Maybe I'm crackers!
When I was younger, I used to always think that you only needed to use deep conditioners and hair repair products if you have dry hair, because in my thinking, only dry hair can become damaged. So, I never thought to use any on my normally oily hair. However, I've since learnt that my hair is damaged in other ways:
- Heat damage from hair drying, straightening etc
- Hair colouring damage. I've honestly not seen my natural hair colour in ten years (I had blonde highlights for my 18th birthday, and have dyed my hair pretty regularly eversince!!)
