      Herbal Essences Silk'n'Shine Shampoo

      The Product
      = = = = = = =
      Herbal Essences have just bought back their original range of hair care products which a lot of people will no doubt remember. This range of products is actually called Herbal Essences Classic Range. Herbal Essences are releasing two classic scents that were available from 1995 - 2006, that most of you may remember well. These two classic scents will include the Smooth Collection and also the Shine Collection. The made-over line of Herbal Essences range has seen sales slumping in recent years despite hiring Nicole Sherzinger (who I personally find annoying!) to advertise their range of products. It's rumoured that by releasing these classic scents it will generate more revenue and the range will become as popular as it did back then. As this is the 20th century although they have re-introduced two of the classic scents the formulas have been updated to be sulphate and silicone free. I am reviewing the Silk'n'Shine Shampoo and later on will also be reviewing the Silk' 'Shine Conditioner as well. I loved the idea of them releasing two of the classic scents especially as I never got to try any of the original herbal essences range before they introduced the new range of products which had a completely new look to them.

      This shampoo claims to nourish your hair and revitalise your senses with sensual and luxurious Rose Hips, Jojoba extracts and Vitamin E. The shampoo with 0% silicone leaves your hair feeing refreshed, radiant and shining. Before I start describing the actual packaging, I much prefer the look and style of this packaging that I do to the current range of packaging that the Herbal Essences products come in. The shampoo comes in a tall but slightly wide bottle which is actually quite flat. The bottle looks a light pink colour, although I think the colour of the shampoo gives the bottle this colour. On the front of the bottle it clearly states what the product it and it has a picture of a rose on the front as well which of course represents the Rose Hip that is in the shampoo. On the back of the bottle it gives you a little information about the shampoo and also lists the ingredients. The lid to the bottle is a dark green colour and this flips back to reveal a small hole in which the shampoo dispenses out of.

      Price/Availability
      = = = = = = = =
      I purchased the shampoo along with the conditioner from my local boots store for £1.89 each. The Herbal Essences Classic range is actually half priced at the moment, originally priced at £3.79 for 400ml. I think this range is a real bargain at half price. Other original shampoo's and conditioner in the classic range include:

      * Sensuously Smooth
      * Shimmering Colour
      * Moisture Balance

      On the website they show all the above product, how-ever in my local boots store they only have the Silk'n'Shine and the Moisture Balance range which was a shame as I would have liked to have tried the Shimmering Colour shampoo & conditioner due having coloured hair. Although it shows the other products on the Herbal Essences, I can't find any information about them actually releasing these other shampoos and conditioners, which is a shame.

      = = = = = = = = =
      Using the Product
      = = = = = = = = =
      To use the shampoo, simply massage the luxurious lather into your hair and enjoy the revitalising fragrance. Rinse when ready and for even softer and smoother hair, follow with the Herbal Essences Silk'n'Shine Conditioner, which is suitable for all hair types. After ensuring my hair was wet all over I flipped back the lid to the shampoo and squeezed the bottle slightly dispense a small amount into the palm of my hand. The shampoo is light pink and has a nice consistency to it, without being too thick. I started to massage this into my hair and found that it lathered up very quickly creating a nice rich foam which felt soft. As the product lathered up I could also smell the scent of the product which was a gorgeous light rose smell. This was probably one of the nicest smelling shampoo's I have ever used.

      The scent of the product smelt divine and it gave such a fresh feeling to my hair and also made me feel great as well. After spending a good few minutes massaging the product into my hair I rinsed it out. The product rinsed out quickly and was easy to rinse out as the shampoo hadn't caused any knots or tangles in my hair. When washing the shampoo out I could already feel how soft my hair had become from using this product. I did use this product alone despite buying the conditioner as I wanted to see how the product performed on its own. The shampoo definitely made my hair feel clean and smell fresh and it also made my hair look good as well. There was definitely more shine to my hair and it now looked healthier than it had done before. My hair also appeared to look quite smooth as well. I normally wash my hair every 3rd day and I was glad that when using this shampoo it didn't cause my hair to become greasy before the 3 days and it didn't cause any irritation with my scalp either. The scent of the product didn't last as long as I would have liked it to.

      = = = = = = = = =
      Overall Opinion
      = = = = = = = = =
      When I heard about this range of products coming back, I couldn't wait to try them as I heard many good things about the old Herbal Essences range in comparison to the new products which I believe aren't quite a good as the old range. I love, love, love the packaging to the product as I think it looks attractive and it also looks very different to the packaging of most hair care products that are currently available. In terms of the using the shampoo, it was easy to use and also very pleasant to use. The consistency of the shampoo is perfect and I love the light pink colour of the shampoo which is see through making it look slightly more like a runny gel.

      The smell of the shampoo is gorgeous and really does give your hair a super clean feeling with the rich lather the shampoo creates when using it. My hair definitely appeared to look and feel in better condition and it did feel smooth and also had a nice, healthy shine to it. Obviously when using this product with the Silk'n'Shine conditioner the results should be better. Although the product has a gorgeous scent to it and I can smell this in my hair after drying it, it would have been nice if the scent had lasted a little longer. In terms of value I think the product is fantastic value at full price but its unbelievable value at half price. I am so glad I got to try this product and I only hope that they release the Shimmering Colour range so I can use this on my coloured hair. I definitely recommend this product and think it's better than some of the newer Herbal Essences products.


      The Silk'n'Shine Conditioner review will be added tommorrow.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great hair care product.

      The bottles of this shampoo seem to have had a makeover since the photo was taken and when I bought it yesterday it was in a punk rock pink and green retro style bottle. I liked the look of it so hoped it would deliver when I took it in the shower. The smell is very fruity...I think this is the kind of thing that when I was a kid I would have tried to drink as it smells so delicious but as a mature grown up I would have to make do with massaging it into my scalp. It rinsed out very easily and then I jumped out the shower to towel dry and blow dry my hair with crossed fingers for the results (which is pretty hard with a hairdrier in your hand!). It totally lived up to the name and my hair was very shiny and silky. My friend even asked if I had straightened my hair which I hadn't. It really is a bargain and makes your hair smell divine. Plus there is lots of stuff to amuse you on the back of the bottle! I bought it with the conditioner and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

      Herbal Essences - old or new, is a lovely product and worth trying

      I'm so sad. They're taking my Herbal Essences away.

      Not too long agi I discovered "Herbal Essences - silk n' shine" shampoo and I love it. It's fragrance is as sweet as a bowl of fruit salad and when it lathers up it's like washing your hair in silk - hence the name 'Silk n' Shine, I guess. That's it, it's like washing your hair in a bowl of fruit salad and cream <----- That feels better than it reads. Honestly!

      It feels wonderful and I feel like I'm in one of their adverts every time I wash my hair. Washing my hair with this is no longer a chore, it feels fabulous and luxurious and refreshing and sensual and....oh it's just lovely.

      One thing that I absolutely love about the old Herbal Essences is the way my hair squeaks when I've rinsed it out. You know that squeaky clean feeling? Well this shampoo delivers on that. My hair is squeaky clean after using it.

      I've tried the new one and I'll review it and it smells wonderful and feels wonderful too, but no squeaky clean feeling. :-( I'll still use it though because there's this coconut fragrance I've discovered.....but that's another review.

      Anyway, before it disappears off the shelf due to their rebrand, I'll be buying as many bottles of the old "Silk n' Shine" that I can find.

      Enjoy it while you can.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I will keep buying this for as long as I can find it

      As usual last Christmas I got lots of smellies as stocking fillers and these included a few sets of matching shampoo and conditioners. The Herbal Essences ones that I am currently using were part of a special offer from Asda - the standard bottles each had a free sample bottle of one of the new range taped to it so they were excellent value. At least they would have been had the ones from the new range been any good but I was sadly disappointed in both the new shampoo and the new conditioner.

      Anyway the one that I am currently using is the shampoo from the original range and it is called Clairol Herbal Essences Silk 'n' Shine Shampoo which I am using with the matching Conditioner. This shampoo is apparently going to morph into 'Seductively Straight' in the new range but as I just said it isn't a patch on the original.

      This shampoo comes in a clear plastic bottle, which is easy to hold onto in the shower, with a green flip top. The top of the lid is circular but the underneath has a straight edge as though a sliver of the circle has been cut away. This means that flicking the container open in the shower with wet hands is made much easier. I bet it was a woman who had that idea..... I'll get into trouble for THAT remark!

      The front of the bottle has the words 'Clairol Herbal Essences Silk 'n' Shine Shampoo - Dry Damaged Hair'. The shampoo itself contains rose hips, jojoba extracts and vitamin E. The label on the back has a picture on the reverse of it showing pink roses so that the picture shows through when you look at the bottle from the front if you see what I mean. Anyway it does mean that it looks pretty on the bathroom shelf.

      The shampoo claims to 'revitalise your senses in a world of botanical bliss, invigorating and luxurious, this fragrant shampoo, exclusively blended with 100% organic botanicals, will leave you feeling refreshed and your hair at its most beautiful'.

      I accept this is advertising speak but to be fair this is a lovely shampoo and it does the business.

      It is a pretty pale pink in colour and to use it I just had to squeeze a bit onto my hands and massage into my hair. The shampoo lathers well and soon my head was a mass of bubbles and yes, I would describe them as luxurious as they feel thick and creamy. I don't need to use much as our water is very soft and I do only have fairly short hair.

      The fragrance really is lovely. I couldn't have picked out the rose hip smell but it does smell really fresh and flowery.

      The bubbles wash out easily enough but then I do shampoo my hair under a power shower. I then use the matching conditioner to finish off.

      The results with this shampoo and conditioner were exactly what I have to come to expect from the Herbal Essences range. Although to be fair my hair is in good condition to begin with and it is quite short and fairly think in texture, this shampoo makes it feels REALLY soft. In fact if I had to blow dry it into a complicated style I think it might well be too soft straight after washing. As my hair is in a simple bob and just brushed straight from root to tips blow drying was easy enough and my hair has an amazing shine and it smells lovely and fresh.

      There are the usual warnings on the back of the bottle about not getting the stuff in your eyes and washing it out straight away with cold water if you do.

      The list of ingredients is very long and as you might expect there are a fair few chemicals in there!

      The 400g bottle from the original range currently retails at £2.92 in Boots and the equivalent sixe in the new range costs £3.22. Boots often have offers on these products so if they are the ones you like wait for an offer and stock up!

      If I can find any of this original one on the shelves I shall definitely buy it again but if these all eventually disappear in favour of the new range I shall be changing my allegiance to another brand I'm afraid.

      Herbal Essences is made by Proctor and Gamble UK of Weybridge, Surrey KT13 0XP.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great shampoo which doesn't cost much

        I love Herbal Essences shampoo, and I can go and use other shampoos but I always seem to go back to Herbal Essences since it is one of my favourites.

        My favourite shampoo from Herbal Essences, and the one I usually buy, is the Silk'n'Shine shampoo which has rose hips, vitamin E and jojoba in it. The shampoo is for dry and damaged hair and unfortunately due to dying my hair and using hair straighteners, my poor hair needs a little TLC!

        The shampoo comes in two different sizes: 250ml and 400ml.

        The bottle is a nice squashed oval shape so that your hand fits around it nicely and it is easy to squeeze the shampoo out. The bottle is made from clear, see-through, soft plastic. You can see through the bottle, and printed on the inside of the backside of the bottle is a picture of some rose hips, I quite like the design of the bottle and like that you can see a picture on the other side. The lid is made of green plastic and is a flip top lid which flips open to reveal a small hole which the shampoo comes out of. If you don't like flip tops then you can just screw the lid off instead.

        The shampoo is a clear, light pink colour which is quite a thick consistency. I do like the smell of the shampoo, it is a nice subtle smell and not too overpowering. It smells quite sweet, flowery and clean.

        One of the things I like most about this shampoo is a little goes a long way. I have shoulder length hair, and I can use the smallest amount of shampoo and it will create a lot of bubbles, which makes it seem like I am giving my hair a really good clean. The shampoo rinses out easily and doesn't leave any residue or oiliness in my hair. When I dry my hair I find that it is quite nice and fluffy, but shiny and manageable at the same time. When I buy Herbal Essences I will use it most days, and I find that it gives the same result every time which I am really impressed with.

        The shampoo is to be used within 12 months of being opened, and I have never found it to be a problem using it within this time period.

        There is a matching conditioner to go with the shampoo, though I personally usually just use the shampoo by itself.

        There are usually offers on for Herbal Essences so you can usually find a good deal! Even when it is not on offer I find it to be a very reasonable £2.95 for 400ml and £1.99 for 250ml. I highly recommend it!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A lovely floral smelling shampoo that leaves hair shiny

          I always like to try out different shampoos so when I was shopping a few weeks ago and saw some shampoo on a two for the price of one offer I couldn't resist. The shampoo was Clairol Herbal Essences Silk N'Shine shampoo. I had tried a few Herbal Essences shampoos before and liked them so was keen to see if this was as good. The shampoo costs around £2.92 for a 400ml bottle and is available in most supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug and other chemist stores. It pays to shop around as it is often on special offer in store and you can pick up a bargain.

          The shampoo is designed for dry and damaged hair especially hair that has been coloured or permed. It contains rose hips, jojoba extracts and vitamin E. The shampoo is said to -

          Protect hair's radiant vitality
          Penetrate and help replenish hair's natural moisture
          Leave hair luxuriously silky and shining with radiance

          The shampoo is said to have a revitalising fragrance and will leave you refreshed and your hair at its most beautiful.

          The shampoo comes in a 400ml clear plastic bottle. It has a flip top cap at the top which is quite stiff and wouldn't be very easy to open for those with arthritic hands. Looking through the bottle you can see a picture of roses. Now I didn't really notice this in the shop I just looked at the shampoo saw it was for dry and damaged hair and bought it. When I went to use it and saw the roses I thought "Oh no, this is going to stink of roses." Its not that I dislike the smell of roses, I don't, I love the smell of roses in the garden but I don't like rose scented products, I find that they are often rather overpowering and a bit sickly. I opened the lid and took a sniff and was pleasantly surprised and also relieved. The shampoo smells fresh and floral but not particularly rose scented in my opinion. It has a lovely smell and I really like it. It is a girly smell and as the shampoo is pink and pictures of roses I would say (without trying to be sexist) that they are aiming at the female market here.

          The shampoo is a pale pink colour and is moderate consistency. It foams up well in your hair and you get a good lather and the scent fills the air. Its easy enough to rinse out and my hair feels squeaky clean. Drying my hair I can smell the lovely fresh floral smell again under the heat of the hairdryer. My hair feels clean, soft and smooth. It also appears a bit shinier than before and sits well during the day. The scent also stays for a long time after washing which is nice too.

          So does it do what it says on the tin? Well I would say yes, I do feel that it protects and replenishes my hair. As I get my hair highlighted and I use straighteners regularly I do worry that my hair will get dry and damaged so I do look for products that will help against this. This shampoo leaves my hair silky and shiny so I am pretty pleased with it.

          I really like this shampoo, it smells great and it leaves my hair soft, shiny and smooth. It is fairly good value for money especially if you can buy it when its on offer. I will certainly be buying this one again, well that is unless another shampoo I haven't tried is on special offer and I am tempted away!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            An effective shampoo that smells beautiful.

            I have highlighted hair which is dry and damaged and I am always looking to try new products to leave my hair less frizzy and more manageable. I first heard about Herbal Essences in their memorable television advertising campaign in which a woman moans with pleasure whilst washing her hair! This was enough to make me try the shampoo and I was also told by a friend that the range was affordable and smelled divine!

            I bought the 400ml Silk N' Shine shampoo and conditioner for Dry and Damaged Hair. I think they were around £2 a bottle but I have seen the price vary from store to store. This is the 'pink' coloured range. The shampoo comes in a transparent bottle but the liquid inside is tainted pink. The back of the bottle is adorned with a rose bush paper. This is to highlight the fact that the added ingredients in the shampoo include Rose hips in addition to jojoba extracts and Vitamin E.

            The bottle comes with a flip top opening. This can be snapped open with ease when you have wet and slippy fingers. It closes securely although I wouldn't travel with a bottle unless the top was taped down. The whole top can actually screw off but the dispensing nozzle is large enough to be able to squeeze a fair amount out.

            The label on the shampoo gives directions for use and tells me what the shampoo will do for my hair. It says that "pure mountain spring water" is used in the making of the shampoo. This, along with the other special ingredients, will: "Protect hair's radiant vitality; penetrate and help replenish hair's natural moisture and leave hair...silky and shining".

            I need a large dollop (maybe two fifty pence piece size) to work through my long hair. The shampoo is gelatinous but works into a lather quite quickly. I find that there are a lot of bubbles from just a little bit of shampoo. The aroma of the shampoo is amazing. It is very strong and pervades the entire upstairs level of my house when I'm in the shower! The fragrance is quite fruity, fresh and flowery - it is like walking through a field of flowers and ripe Spring fruits.

            The shampoo is very good at cleaning the hair and after rinsing the hair it feels sleek and soft. I use the conditioner in the same range to get the full benefit. The conditioner has the same scent and is equally impressive.

            During the styling stage my hair is easy to manage. When fully dry my hair has a high shine finish and the aroma lingers on the hair for a day after washing. My hair is soft but not flyaway or fuzzy.

            I am very impressed by the Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner range and have since used other products in the range. They are a cheap solution for dry, frazzled hair. Another brilliant thing about Herbal Essences is that ultra powerful aroma - you have to try it to believe it. The smell is like a magic spell! I'll keep buying this and recommend it to friends.

              Its great

              Like so many people, i have dry/damaged flyaway hair. So, i decided to change my shampoo & conditioner a few weeks back.

              I was looking in my local supermarket and come across some
              herbal essences trial size bottles (big ones are quite pricey), as they were at a reduced price i thought i would give them a go.

              I would like to say that i tried my hardest to resist waving my
              head about shouting "yes"! Unfortunately i succumbed, it must have been the gorgeous smell from the shampoo! On went the conditioner next, and my hair felt transformed almost
              immediately, smooth and silky.

              Once my hair was dried, it kept the gorgeous smell and silky
              texture and was so shiny it looked like spun gold! Wow! Ive almost used up the bottles now, and although it is quite pricey, my hair has never been in such good shape or smelt so good.
              Oh and its 100% organic too! Great huh?

              Go get some and see for yourself. I love it!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Great shampoo

                Despite the fact my bathroom windowsill is full to bursting with various bottles of shampoos (all used a tiny bit and then replaced with the newest one!) I couldn't resist buying another 3 bottles whilst browsing in Superdrug the other day. They were on such a good offer I couldn't resist, and I knew if I didn't like them, my fiance would use them as he isn't fussy about what shampoo he uses! One of the bottles I picked up was Herbal Essences Silk n Shine shampoo in a pretty pink bottle, so based on that fact I decided to try this one first.

                Herbal Essences are a brand of shampoos produced by the haircare company Clairol. They have an extensive product catalogue made up of various shampoos and conditioners for different hair types. You probably know the company from the infamous TV adverts of the woman shouting "yes, yes, YES!" in the shower when washing her hair...a tad over the top but somewhat memorable I suppose. Their shampoos are widely available in most chemists and supermarkets so its quite easy to find their products when out doing your shopping.

                Now to this particular shampoo. As I mentioned, this shampoo is called Silk 'n' Shine, and is part of the 'Herbs and Botanics' range of Herbal Essences shampoos (they also produce Fruit Fusions and Rainforest Flowers). This shampoo comes in a clear plastic bottle with a lovely picture at the back of the shampoo of roses, giving it a very girly and pretty look. The shampoo itself is also a light pink colour and offsets nicely with the picture on the back of the bottle. It has the Herbal Essences logo at the top, with a 'Shine Satisfaction' badge, which fills you with hope that you will indeed get wonderful shine from you hair with using this shampoo!

                This shampoo is a replenishing shampoo, and is aimed at those with coloured, dry permed or damaged hair. I had my hair coloured with low-lights in April, so therefore I wanted a shampoo which would protect my colour but also give me great shine and strength to my hair. The shampoo contains Rose Hips, Jojoba and Vitamin E, which are the botanical ingredients. I didn't really know about these ingredients so after a little internet search, I found that rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant, jojoba is a shrub native to the deserts in California and well, we all have heard of Vitamin E. So overall, this shampoo contains some pretty nice plants which are said to help your hair...so did they do just that?

                Well, I tried this first about a week ago and have used it since in order to get a good idea of how it leaves my hair after prolonged use, because I sometimes find shampoos start off good and then become awful for my hair. So on the first wash, the soft rose scent really struck me, it didn't smell strong in the bottle but when I started to lather it up on my hair, the smell was released and surrounded my bathroom really quickly. I noticed that I didn't need to use a lot of the shampoo to create a thick, bubbly lather on my hair, about a 10 pence sized blob was more than enough, and evenly coated my hair. I thought it might be hard to rinse out because of the amount of lather in my hair, but it came out quickly and easily, leaving my hair feeling squeaky clean. Even when I'd rinsed all the shampoo out, the smell of roses was really strong but not unpleasantly so, so I was quite impressed by that.

                When I'd dried my hair, I could certainly smell the rose smell still all over my hair, even my partner commented on how sweet my hair smelt. But what struck me the most was how soft my hair was. I'd previously tried a new Tigi shampoo which left it feeling like straw, so I knew that this Herbal Essences shampoo had really contributed to its softness. I don't use conditioner (it just leaves my hair so greasy and limp) but even so, I didn't have to struggle with any tangles, the comb went through easily, and by the time my hair was completely dry, it was so soft and shiny. When I went out in last weeks sunshine, my hair was really shining, the colours were so vibrant, especially the red low-lights, I was so impressed. Even after 2 days when it needed another wash, my hair wasn't too greasy and didn't look awful as it sometimes does, so another good point!

                As I mentioned before, I have used this for a week now and I am just more impressed with the results the more I use it. My hair is consantly soft and silky, and the emphasis to my coloured hair is fantastic. The colours really stand out and gleam in the light, and the combined softness just makes me really happy with my hair, and with the shampoo. I would really recommend it to anyone who wants soft and silky hair, with a gorgeous scent which really does linger in your hair for quite a while...I usually wash my hair in the evening and it still smells rosy in the morning, brilliant!

                You can buy the shampoo in 2 different sized bottles, a 200ml bottle will cost you around £1.80, and the 400ml size will cost £2.98, so is better value overall. I got my 400ml bottle for just 95p in Superdrug (bargain!) and Boots currently have the larger size on Buy-One-Get-One-Free which is a great offer if you want to stock up. A matching conditioner can be bought in this range too. For more information on Herbal Essences shampoos and conditioners, see their website www.herbalessences.com.

                  Shampoo infused with pure botanicals and rose hip.

                  ~* SHINE WITH SATISFACTION *~



                  ** HERBAL ESSENCES 'SILK N ' SHINE' SHAMPOO **

                  'Discover the Herbal Essences Silk n' Shine Collection for a post organic glow'... Herbal essences silk and shine shampoo is a new fusion of rose hips, johoba and vitamin E.


                  The shampoo that I have is for dry and damaged hair. It is the new silk n' shine formula. It comes in a clear 8 inch plastic bottle through which you can see pictures of pink roses in bloom. It has a large picture to the front of a rose, and herbal essences written around it. It states 'Shine with satisfaction' beside this. The contents is 400 ml, and the shelf life is 12 months. There is also a full list of ingredients to the reverse of the bottle.


                  This new formula contains rose hips, johoba, and vitamin E diluted in spring water. The clairol essences range are made from 100% organic pure botanicals, and the wonderful concoction revitalises the hair and senses. This luxurious formula is created to bring us protection for hairs vitality, to help replenish and penetrate, to help with the moisture levels within the hair, and to create a silkiness, and a radiant shine.


                  The shampoo method is to pour some fragrant herbal essences into your palm, and massage onto the head, until you have obtained a rich lather, then breathe in the full intoxicating aroma of the rose smell, it really is quite divine. Leave for a minute, then rise thoroughly. The smell not only revitalises the hair but seems to lift the spirits also. The shampoo also acts as a light conditioner, to smooth the fibre of the hair, and it leaves your hair in very silky condition. To combine the shampoo with the silk 'n' shine conditioner really does makes a difference, and adds greatly to the conditioning of the hair.


                  I actually bought both a while ago in 400 ml bottles, and they have lasted me well. It does make the hair very silky and in good condition. I would definitely recommend both the silk 'n' shine shampoo and the conditioner. 'Herbal Essences Silk n' Shine Conditioner contains wheat protein, wheat starch and palm-derived moisturisers which caress every hair strand, making the hair feel and look silky-smooth. The hair is not overloaded, leaving its structure intact and allowing you to create this year's sexy, dishevelled look'. I think it may also have the 'yes factor!' ;)


                  There is a small piece of trivia to the back of the bottle, entitled 'Herbal Lore', that says, 'Ancient Greeks believed roses became red from the blood of Aphrodite, who priced her foot on a thorn trying to save her beloved Adonis'.
