Hope you are all having a gorge day so far! I’ve got another review for you beauties today – I’ve been trying out a new shampoo & conditioner so I thought I’d let you all know about them.
I’ve been using the Revitalising Coconut Water Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner for the last two weeks now and it is the first time I have ever used any products from Xpel Hair Care, to be honest I had never heard of the brand before. I bought them both at Poundland for 99p each and when I noticed ‘Coconut Water’ written on the bottles, you know I just had to buy them. I love everything coconut – it has helped my psoriasis and skin out a lot so I have got myself a little obsession with it!
I think the bottles look so much more expensive than they are. The shampoo was only 99p and the conditioner was another 99p, which you really can’t complain about, can you. If these were priced at, say, £4.99 each I reckon I would still purchase them, I’m a sucker for coconut ha ha. The bottles look good and there is 400ml of product in each bottle so they are pretty good sized for the price.
They do have some questionable ingredients in them and I do try my best to use natural products so my scalp psoriasis and skin doesn’t become irritated but what the hell. I will do some research on the ingredients list and update the post once I have read up on each one.
What I thought?
The shampoo itself has a clear, runny consistency and it smells slightly of coconut. It lathers well but I found that I needed to use a lot of it to remove all oil and grease from my hair. When washing I didn’t feel as though my hair and scalp was being cleansed and the shampoo lathered more at the ends of my hair than it did at the roots so I applied more to my roots than was probably needed. Luckily though, when I washed the shampoo off my scalp felt cleansed and my hair was sleek to touch and didn’t have a rough texture.
The conditioner is a basic white colour which looked a bit on the cheap side although once I applied it to my hair, it coated each strand well and spread easily. It wasn’t runny or drippy and it felt moisturising and hydrating. Like the shampoo it has a light coconut scent although the shampoo smells a bit stronger than the conditioner. When I washed the conditioner off, my hair felt conditioned and I was happy that my usually tatty hair was easy to comb. I’ve been leaving my hair to dry naturally and it felt soft to touch once it had dried and easy to style. My hair was also shinier too, I was happy about that. There wasn’t really a coconut scent left on my hair afterwards but it did smell nice and clean so that will do me.
Would I buy again?
Overall, I’m pleased with the shampoo and conditioner and I would buy them both again, they aren’t the best I have ever used but I did like them and they are a bargain at 99p each!
I really do love my shopping sprees at the likes of Poundland, B&M and Home Bargains and it is truly amazing what you can get on the cheap in these saver stores.
What’s the best beauty bargains you guys have picked up from Poundland?
