Liz Earle Botanical Shine Conditioner

liz earle logoMy hair is suffering big style. Recent weather changes and lack of haircuts (don’t judge me) mean that my hair is looking a little worse for wear. Thankfully the Liz Earle team stepped in early enough to save me from another weeks misery, and sent me over the Botanical Shine Conditioner to partner up with my shampoo (See review here)Liz Earle Botanical Shine Conditioner

I’m quite particular about hair care. I like the products I use to be substantial and rich, which can be tricky when you’re trying to go natural. I usually find that most natural shampoos tangle my hair and the conditioners just… well, they don’t do anything! Lucky for me, the Botanical Shine Conditioner is rich, thick and luxurious and smells amazing, so it definitely ticks all my boxes whilst giving me a little more incentive to get up in the morning for my shower! That’s right, I wash my hair every day; and I know it’s a bad habit and isn’t very eco, but I feel like I’ve done enough in my life to compensate that!

As with all the Liz Earle products, the smell is absolutely amazing! The hair care range is probably one of my favourite smells ever, and it really sticks around throughout the day if you don’t load up your hair with products afterwards. My only concern is the perfume in the ingredient list… Perfumes can either be a million ingredients combined together to create the ‘perfect’ smell, or simply a few essential oils combined and added for a slightly sweeter scent. I’m hoping Liz Earle sit somewhere in the middle!

The active ingredients in this conditioner include: Apple Fruit Extract which leaves your hair super shiny as well as Yangu Oil and West African Shea Butter which conditions and restores moisture. Definitely a great cocktail of ingredients, with plenty of benefits to your hair!

Again, it does what it says on the tin, which is all I could ever ask of a product. It cares for my damaged hair and leaves it with a beautiful, natural shine. My hair can become brittle and dry very quickly, so it’s great to be able to use the Botanical Shine Shampoo & Conditioner every day to keep my hair nourished and soft! My tip would be to leave your conditioner in for a few minutes to set in if you don’t already, whilst you get on with other things – you’ll definitely notice the difference!

If you don’t have dry hair like me, there is also a conditioner for Fine & Oily Hair and one for Normal Hair too!

There’s not much quite as satisfying as wondering who smells so good and realising it’s you. A feeling I had to get used to once I started using so many Liz Earle (LE) products. As I’m sure you know by now, I live on the sunny Isle of Wight on the south coast of England, and we have a huge amount of local businesses to be proud of, Liz Earle being one of them.

Their products launched in 1995 with the legendary Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish, which I’m sure anyone interested in natural cosmetics and skincare will have heard all about. After becoming a complete addict, I hope to be doing a series of Liz Earle product, and hope that you can all come to love the brand as much as I do!

I will be starting with the Botanical Shine Shampoo, just because I think it is probably my favourite product at the moment. I have the pleasure of using this beauty every day and I’m completely in love with it.

There is something that feels so indulgent about all of the Liz Earle range; it probably has something to do with the amazingly high quality ingredients they use. This shampoo boasts presence of (and brace yourself there’s quite a list): Patchouli, Sweet Orange, Lemon, Carrot Seed, Rosemary, Cedar wood and Geranium Essential Oils as well as Aloe Vera, West African Shea, Vanilla Absolute and Apple Fruit Extract, so it is absolutely packed full of natural goodness to help cleanse our hair whilst adding shine and lifting our spirits! The smell is absolutely gorgeous, and it really doesn’t fail to fill me with energy in the shower each morning. I have been using this shampoo every day for around a month now and the smell is still as exciting and beautiful each day as when I started.

The results definitely don’t let you down either, LE really aren’t kidding when they talk about shine. I’ve had so many compliments on my hair since I have been using this shampoo about how shiny and soft it looks, and I have to agree! Even on my blonde hair the shine is beautiful, and it leaves my hair light and manageable all day, with a boost of volume too.

So without rambling on too much, all you have to know is this shampoo is amazing. I absolutely love it and feel like it has permanently worked its way into my everyday routine. I cannot recommend highly enough! Please see below for a summary and pros and cons!

Pros

  • Beautiful scent
  • Great texture – foams up a treat, a little goes a long way
  • Amazing shine even on unlikely hair tones
  • Buy a triple set and save yourself some cash
  • Comes in a handy travel/try me size (50ml) for only £5
  • Sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate free, but still very foamy!
  • Incredible ingredients list with plenty of health benefits

Cons

  • The size for me is a little too small! It would be great if it could come in a 500ml+ bottle with a pump for everyday use
  • At £8.75 it is a little pricey – but great for a little bit of indulgence every day

Keep your eyes peeled for my next review of the Botanical Shine Conditioner!
