      .

      This is another sample that I got and have only got round to using it. In 1 of my bathrooms there is a little cupboard that I hardly ever go into, and when I looked in it the other day then I found a whole load of products in there and decided to use them up to save them all kicking about.

      I do use a couple of products from the Dermalogica range and when you buy a full sized product i've always tended to get some samples as well. I guess this may be quite a standard thing, but often I find in the shops they products can be a bit more expensive than online so perhaps you are paying a bit for the samples? I find it a good way to try new products though.

      I've not used the Silk Finish Shampoo - would assume that you get it in a Shampoo as well. I do prefer to use matching products but beggars can't be choosers and all that.

      This Conditioner claims to Detangle your hair and also Smooth the Cuticles of your Hair so that it will it sit nice and smooth (and surely have a nice shine to it as well). The Conditioner also states that it is a gentle Conditioner with no artificial colours or fragrances. There isn't much fragrance to this anyway - smells a little bit like the creamy scent that you get from Dove but a lot lighter scented. It's a nice clean scent. After looking online for the price of this I see that this has Lemon, Tea Tree and Euclyptus in it but I can't say I can smell the scent of these - apart from what I assume is the Euclyptus light scent.

      Online I see that this is available in 2 different bottle sizes and to me they are strange sized. They are 237ml which sells for around £15-£17 and the 59ml which is around £8. The little sample bottle I got done 3 applications.

      So how did I find this to work on my Hair? I found it to be alright. The Cream was a medium thickness and rinsed off easy enough. It also didn't feel like the heaviest of Cream on my Hair and my Hair felt nice and soft when I was rinsing this out.

      After drying my Hair it felt glossy and smooth and when I straightened my Hair the next morning it looked Smooth, soft and had a nice sheen to it.

      I found this to be a good Conditioner which seems to tackle dry patches and Condition deep down, but I wouldn't spend all this money on a Conditioner.

      Good product but 1 that I wouldn't buy mself due to the cost.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      too expensive for average results

      Dermalogica is a salon beauty brand who offer a wide range of skin and body care products.

      ~Conditioner~

      Dermalogica offer a shampoo and conditioner which can used seperately or alone for good results. The conditioner is known as the "Silk Finish Conditioner". The company claim this conditioner is gentle enough to be used daily and is described as being "ultra polishing". The conditioner claims to detangle hair whilst smoothing the cuticle of the hair. It contains no artificial colours or fragrances. So what else is included?

      *wheat proteins, vitamin A and B5 - repairing, nourishing and leaving the hair managable
      *tea tree, lemon and eucalyptus - for cleansing properties and detangling
      *rosemary, ylang ylang and lavender - for soft, silky hair

      It is suitable for all hair types.

      ~Packaging~

      The conditioner is housed within a tall, rather cheap looking plastic bottle which is white with grey writing. The lid at the top has a flip up dispensing hole.

      ~Price~

      The conditioner is mainly available in a 237ml size. Stockists :

      *www.dermalexpert.co.uk - £16.80
      *www.beautyflash.co.uk - £21.00 (59ml priced at £7.99)

      ~My Thoughts~

      My hair isn't my best feature as it is generally dry and irritable! I do try and take care of it by using a decent shampoo and conditioner. I had been using Tresemme for a while as the bottles they offer are huge but when I ran out I had to search my cupboards for more conditioner. I came across my stash of goodies I received last Christmas and located 2 small bottles (so just under 120ml in total) of Dermalogica Silk Finish Conditioner. I have just finished both bottles so thought I should review them!

      The bottle is boring and I suppose you expect more from a high priced brand but the contents are what count! I have used this conditioner with a few different shampoos over the past month or so and generally condition my hair every 2nd or 3rd day. The bottle is easy to grip and dispense a good sized blob for my very long, thick hair. Once shampooed, I can get on with adding some moisture into my hair.

      ~Rich Yet Light..Is That Possible?~

      The conditioner is quite thick and creamy on dispensing. It is a standard white colour and has a lovely fresh smell which has hints of essential oils in it. It isn't overpowering, just right. The conditioner spreads like a dream through my hair and clings to every strand coating it in a creamy layer. I tend to work more through the length of my hair and slightly less at the roots. I have a dry scalp and it hasn't irritated this. The conditioner feels pleasantly light on my hair and it I leave it on for a few minutes before dunking under the shower head. It rinses fairly quickly and certainly quicker than my Tresemme conditioner.

      After rinsing, my hair feels soft and light. Thankfully there is no residue left as that drives me nuts and forces me to rinse my hair again. I can get a comb or brush through it quickly and either towel dry it or give it a blast with the hair dryer if I am short on time.

      The first time I used this conditioner I wasn't immediately impressed. Whilst my hair felt smooth and the scent lingered, it wasn't an amazing result. Through continued used, it has grown on me a little though I don't find the strengthening claims true. My hair (through regular dying and stress) breaks very easily and this conditioner has done nothing to prevent this from happening. My hair doesn't feel as knotted or dry after using this conditioner and is fairly easy to manage. It does provide some shine but again, nothing too strong or worth writing home about!

      ~Conclusion~

      This conditioner is decent enough for my dry hair as it leaves it soft, brushable and doesn't leave any oiliness on my scalp. It isn't worth the high price tag in my opinion as I do not believe it performs any better than my usual Tresemme so I won't be purchasing a bottle in the future. If you can pick up a bottle for a few pounds then go for it but not at full price. My hair does feel soft from the day I wash and condition it until 2days later. The bottle does last several uses due to the thickness and I would say I got 5 uses from each 59ml bottle which isn't bad.

      Thanks for reading :)
