I received this dry shampoo in the post just before the royal wedding and have been using it ever since. I've literally just ran out of it this morning which I was quite impressed with as its lasted a long while, given that I use it more or less every day. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you'll already know how much I love Batiste and can hopefully trust my opinion on it, even though this was a PR sample provided for review. Put it this way- this is my new favourite dry shampoo and I've already bought another two as back up!
Presenting.... Batiste Brit! Just look at the packaging; bold, bright and British. This can looks so eye catching sitting on my dressing table. Gone are the days when the Union Jack was considered tacky, after Ginger Spice paraded about in a Union Jack dress made out of a towel at the 1997 Brit Awards. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Jack is officially back!
|Batiste Brit- Quintessentially English|
This is a relatively new offering from Batiste from their normal range of dry shampoos, and by normal I mean regular dry shampoo with a scent as they have released some coloured ones and some glittery versions in recent months. The first thing that I noticed about Brit is the scent. Whilst the other scented dry shampoos from Batiste smell lovely, they still smell like hair care products. Brit however smells like more a fragrance than a scented product, its like a perfume. It has a very British, quintessentially English smell that reminds me of perfumes made by British designers. In actual fact, it really reminds me of Jack Wills. Its absolutely gorgeous and definitely my favourite smelling dry shampoo from Batiste.
Smelling nice is all well and good but its the performance of the dry shampoo that really matters and Brit certainly lives up to my high expectations.
I swear by dry shampoo, I use it most days whether its to refresh my hair in between washes or to give it some volume. This one by Batiste is great at removing excess oil from your hair and keeping it looking healthy but not greasy. Since my hair is very oily, I even find that using this after I have just shampooed my hair is great to prevent my hair from becoming oily during the day. Batiste is great on long or short hair and whether it is thick or thin it really can transform your hair. I love it!
Batiste is available from all the usual places from Boots to Superdrug, ASDA to Morrisons, Body Care to B&M Home Bargains. Its very affordable to buy and a hair care staple for just about everyone I'd say!
Have you tried Brit? Do you love the smell as much as I do?
