Pantene Review - work in progress


I was invited to apply for a trial of a new Pantene range of products and yay! They chose me to take part. This was for the new Pantene Pro-V Micellar Purify & Nourish range. According the info given,  Pro-V Micellar Purify and Nourish collection will be effectively purifying and nourishing our hair without stripping its natural nutrients, it also provides all the strength our hair needs without the weight! So some big claims!

Micellar technology is everywhere these days. From what I’ve gathered, a micelle is a molecule that is attracted to water on one side and oil on the other. So it can mix with water and grab hold of dirty stuff held in the oils in your hair. Michelle at Labmuffin (a fab science and cosmetic blog) explains it well.

Yesterday a big box arrived. Inside was a snazzy Super Savvy My bag contained two lots of the following, one for me and one for friends or family! 
  • 1 x 180ml bottles of Pantene Pro-V Micellar Purify & Nourish Foam
  • 1 x 400ml bottles of Pantene Pro-V Micellar Purify & Nourish Shampoo
  • 1 x 400ml bottles of Pantene Pro-V Micellar Purify & Nourish Conditioner

I am a bit confused why there are two types of conditioner, I think a styling or protection product might have been more useful but I’ve not used the foam/mousse style conditioner before.

The bottles are huge! The shampoo is crystal clear. It foams really well and for my short hair I only needed a small amount. Probably the size of a 20p coin. The nourish foam was unusual. It was exactly like applying a styling mousse except that I did it in the shower and then rinsed out after a couple of minutes to let it do its job. The shampoo smells of crisp green apples. It is a lovely awakening sort of scent. 

My hair felt smooth after rinsing and I was able to comb through without any snagging. 

After my usual blast with a dryer - I have very short fine hair - I noticed my hair felt very clean and very soft. I didn’t apply any additional volume or styling product. I feel my hair lacked a little body compared to using products so next time I will use my normal styling stuff.

A collection...

Hello! A few photos of recent nail jobs! It seems blogger has changed since I last did this. No longer is an app! So while I figure out how much things have changed, I'll do something simple! I've switched to using my phone and iPad exclusively for some time. My laptop broke because I kept dropping it and the new one I bought was a dud and failed straight out of the box. So I decided to try to live without. Over six months later I'm still laptop-less.typing isn't as easy but I don't write pages and pages so the little iPad keyboard does ok.
