Herbal Essences Bio:Renew

I was given the amazing opportunity to try out the some of the latest Herbal Essences Bio:Renew line as a member of ¬†Super Savvy Me‚Äôs Savvy Circle. Who doesn’t want to try new products that promise to make your hair look better than ever?
Washing my hair can be a real chore especially when I don’t have the products to match my hair’s needs which seem to change a lot! To combat this feeling, Herbal Essences have brought out a new Bio:Renew range.
This collection uses the finest ingredients Mother Nature has to offer to give you the best wash. One of these ingredients is Histidine which is an antioxidant and a natural purifier in the body. What is even better, is that the range is completely free from gluten, parabens and colourants.

There are 7 different duos in the Bio:Renew range, they are:

  • Coconut Milk – focuses on hydrating dry hair
  • Golden Moringa Oil – perfect for for smoothing frizzy hair
  • Cucumber & Green Tea – makes dull hair extremely shiny
  • White Strawberry and Sweet Mint – leaves hair feeling clean
  • Argan Oil of Morocco – repairs damaged hair
  • Rosemary & Herbs – moisturises dry hair
  • White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint – gives fine hair some volume

I was given Cucumber & Green Tea, White Strawberry & Sweet Mint and Argan Oil of Morocco.

Argan Oil of Morocco

FullSizeRenderI have struggled with my hair breaking recently and I’ve been on the search for a product to combat the issue.

I was pleasantly surprised ¬†by¬†¬†this shampoo and the matching conditioner are brilliant. My hair is in such good condition it really has made a difference. My hair is soft and the ends don’t look as brittle as they did before.

The shampoo is quite thick which initially I was wary of but it certainly does the job of repairing the hair – this ones a keeper and I highly recommend it. The smell is also fantastic – a mix of citrus, spice and sweet .

I have quite thick hair so I didn’t think this duo would make much of a difference to it’s appearance. I have to hold my hands up and say that I was very wrong! My hair was left feeling soft and it definitely had an increased shine. Additionally, my hair felt really smooth as if all my cuticles were laying the correct way. I think this was due to the sea kelp. The conditioner is nice and thick so it has great slip for detangling any knots. The smell is very fresh and lasts for days!

I have to say that this duo is my ABSOLUTE favourite out of the three I was able to try. This shampoo and conditioner left my hair and scalp feeling extra clean but not stripped or dry so I didn’t feel the need to reach for a deep conditioner. My hair still felt moisturised just without any product build up.

The best part of this duo is it’s award-winning worthy scent! OMG – it smells soooo good! I found this scent to last longer than the other two.

 

Overall, I think Herbal Essences are onto a winner with this new range. All three of them did exactly what they said they would do and left my hair smelling amazing. For £4.50 a bottle, they are really good quality and comparable to salon products.  I recommend giving this range a chance. I am definitely going to be trying out a few of the others to see how they get on.

Healthy 2 U – Silicea Direct

A little while ago I saw on the Healthy2U website an opportunity to try out some Silica sachets for free. Now as I’m not one to miss out on a great freebie, I immediately signed up.

Firstly, let me explain the benefits of Silica. Silica is an essential nutrient that our bodies need in order to function properly. We have a natural store of silica in all of our connective tissue which depletes during the day through normal body functioning. We also lose silica as we age and that’s when we begin to experience the signs of aging. Those who have adequate amounts of silica in the body boast of having beautiful skin, healthy hair, strong nails, and healthy joints.

According to clinical studies, Silicea direct can increase nail strength by 127%, increase skins metabolic activity by 17% and increase hair thickness by 13%.

The ingredients are:

Silicic Acid gel (90%), fruit mix from fruit concentrates: Grape, Elderberry, Blackcurrant, Strawberry, Raspberry; Fructose, Thickening agent; Pectin, Xanthan gum; Acidifier Malic acid, Natural Flavour, Selenium, Biotin

Healthy2U sent me 15 x 15ml sachets of Silica gel which is to be taken once a day. The sachets are a nice size that I can just throw into my bag for when I’m on the go.

So what does Silica gel taste like? Well, these particular sachets are red berry flavour so it actually tastes quite nice. The texture is a bit odd and hard to describe. It is somewhat grainy but you do get used to it….I promise!

I will be testing these sachets to see if they do make any difference in the next 15 days and I will keep you updated. If they do seem to be working, I will absolutely purchase a 30 day box.

Healthy2U have been kind enough to offer myself and my subscribers a discount code( HSN1) for a 3 month supply for a discounted price of £29.99 Рsaving you over £35! http://www.healthy2u.co.uk/beauty-direct-30x15ml
