Garnier Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother Shampoo

I hate my scalp…. It’s not a secret that my scalp is my arch nemesis and we fall out a lot of the time!

It may seem like a bold statement but my scalp is super sensitive to nearly everything and trying to find shampoos, conditioners, hair masks that don’t irritate it more, just becomes a chore nowadays.

I’ve tried and tested so many products out since the start of the year but don’t get me wrong, I don’t exactly give up after a couple of washes. I slog out the tried and tested rule and try it for a few weeks to see the full effects and a lot of the time, I’m left disappointed with the results.

After purchasing one of the latest offerings from Garnier’s Ultimate Blends collection, I decided to put it to the test and share my results. I decided to buy the Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother Shampoo after seeing an advert on the tv talking about soothing the scalp. I was hoping it was going to be the shampoo of my dreams and the answer to all my problems.

Made with rice cream and oat milk, this shampoo is a gorgeous pearlescent colour and looks rich and nourishing when you pour it out to use it. The purpose of the ingredients are to help reduce itchiness in the scalp, leaving your hair with a lightweight feeling and avoiding to weigh down the scalp.

I have to admit my hair has been super soft and healthy looking whilst I have been using it which is always a plus. My hair hasn’t been dry feeling which a lot of medicated shampoos normally do to me. I also noticed a reduction in the dandruff/dry scalp that used to appear in my hair.

Now I haven’t had a lot of dry scalp problems lately but have suffered immensely with itchy scalp. I would say after using the shampoo for a 3-4 weeks now, I have noticed a lot less tightness in my scalp and hairline and only the odd bit of itchy feeling going on. It hasn’t cured me by any means so don’t expect a miracle product but everything works differently on different people and in my situation, my scalp just hates me.

I tend to alternate my shampoos every so often as they just start having adverse effects on my hair so I try to mix it up with Neutrogena T-Gel for a medicated dose on my scalp.

I’ve had a scout round again and found Wilko is selling this shampoo at a bargain £1.90. This is normally £3+ so this is a great reduction in price and should be snapped up soon if it’s something you want to try for yourself.

Feel free to leave any shampoo-related reviews you’ve written/posted about so I can check them out for the future.

Garnier 2in1 Eye & Face Makeup Remover

For the last 30 days I have been trying out a new makeup remover. When I ran out of my normal Micellar water I decided to try out something completely different and see if I could find another product that would work. I chose the Garnier 2in1 Eye & Face makeup remover as it was offer in a shop I went into.

003

Firstly I noticed you don’t need much of this liquid on a cotton pad to remove the majority of your makeup. It works similarly to micellar water, you just swipe the makeup right off your face with one swoop. There is no alcohol in this product which is always a selling factor to me because alcohol based products sometimes irritate my skin.

The downside to this product for me is that it leaves your skin feeling soft however it leaves a slight greasey feeling as well. I hate products that feel as though they just sit on top of your skin rather than blending in and being absorbed. Because my skin is naturally quite oily and very spot prone, this type of product doesn’t really work for me and I think I need to stick to micellar water in the future.

This product definitely removes makeup easily and for those with dry skin, then this would work brilliantly. I would say for anybody with tempermental skin like mine, then it wont be the best choice. I hope you found this review useful.

Thanks for reading.
