“ Brand: Boots / Type: Conditioner / Suitable for: dry hair / Product line: Boots Fruit Essence „
I spotted this on offer in Boots a couple of weeks ago for about £1 so I thought I would give it a go. It comes in a nice shape "waved" kind of bottle and the whole range the Boots Fruit Essense shampoos and conditioners were in nice brightly coloured bottles. This conditioner, for dry ends, it's called "goodbye to dry ends" is in a bright red/orange coloured bottle with a yellow cap.
For £1 or so this conditioner is quite good, it's not the best I have used and I find I need to leave it on my hair for a few minutes to get the best results. However, if I have left it on my hair for a few minutes then it leaves my hair soft and tangle free when it's dried. So, I guess it does to some degree rehydrate my hair as my hair's ends don't feel too dry.
The conditioner is a pinky red kind of colour and semi thick. I do find I need to use a bit more than I am usually used too, perhaps an inch in diameter across my palm. It'd think enough that it doesn't run through my fingers was I transfer it to both hands and apply to my hair.
I do think this conditioner has a rather funny scent, a bit sickly, however once dried I can't smell it on my hair so it's not too much of a problem. I wouldn't say it smells of red berries and I'm not sure what silk would smell like anyway.
It comes in a largish 400ml bottle so for around a £1 was good value. I would buy it again, by put only if it is on offer as I don't think it was so good that it would be worth spending more that £1 on it. I the fore give it 3 stars, loosing one for the funny smell and one because I needed to use more conditioner than I usually do and also have to leave it on my hair for a few minutes to get the best results.
This is a review of Boots Fruit Essence 'Goodbye Dry Ends' conditioner for mid to long hair. The fragrance of this shampoo is red berry and silk extracts. I picked this up with the corresponding shampoo whilst in Boots and was keen to try the two products together.
The bottle is a long thin shape with a bit of a curve at the top and it stands up well on the shelf. The conditioner sits on its head which is a green click top lid so you can squeeze out the product easily. Inside, the product looks a bit like a smoothie drink and is a pink gloopy colour which fits in with the 'red berry theme'. The bottle is a large 400ml which is good as I have long hair and like to use loads of conditioner on the length and ends to try and keep it in good nick.
I have been using this conditioner with the corresponding shampoo from the same line so hopefully have had the best results possible from it. This review concentrates on the conditioner though. I use a good handful on my hair mainly through the lengths and ends and I like to leave it on for a while (while I read my book!) so that I get the benefit before rinsing it out. The red berry leaves my hair smelling great and I think the silk extracts have helped to make it a little softer and smoother overall.
A 400ml bottle costs £1.29 at the moment in Boots. I think I got this in a 3 for 2 deal at the time and also got Boots points for the purchase.
Whilst the conditioner does not look that appealing through the clear bottle, it is the right consistency you would expect for a conditioner and when the bottle is stood correctly on its head, the product runs to the base of the bottle so it is easier to squeeze out. It does stick to the inside of the bottle though which doesn't look great - a bit like pink blancmange! - but at least you can sort of see how much is left in there. I always end up using more conditioner than shampoo on my long hair so try to balance this out with the 3 for 2 offers but often end up mixing and matching brands so I don't have 50 bottles on the go at once! Performance wise, I am happy with this product and that is what is most important to me when using a conditioner. I am also pleased with the price of this conditioner and feel it is a good buy.
I like to review products as I finish the bottle when I am at that deciding point of whether I have enjoyed using the product, having given them a good chance to either please or fail for me. This makes my 'final word' the pertinent point for whether I would repurchase or not, writing the review whilst the product is still fresh in memory and mind. For the price paid I am happy with this product and have had good performance from it so I am happy to repurchase it again in the future.
