“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Conditioner „
I recently noticed that Tesco are doing their own new range of shampoo and conditioner call My Senses, I had a quick look through the ones they had to offer and decided to give the Celestial Shine one a go. I actually bought the shampoo and conditioner in this range but it is the conditioner I will be reviewing.
The Tesco My Senses Celestial Shine Conditioner comes in a tall rectangle shaped bottle with slightly curved sides, the shape of the bottle actually makes it very easy to grip when in the bath or shower. The bottle is an almost transparent green colour with a slightly darker green lid which doubles up as the base, the lid simply flips open and clips shut again. The bottle has a clear label on the front of it which gives the appearance that the information is printed directly onto the bottle. The majority of the label is taken up with a swirly pattern made up of purples, orange, greens and yellows along with orange and yellow stars and green dots. Written over the top of this pattern is the name of the shampoo "Tesco My Senses Conditioner" this is written in white writing, the words Celestial Shine and a sentence about the product is also written under this in white writing, this states "transport your tresses to a shinier place with dazzling extracts of green tea and lemon verbena", this is the only information on the front of the bottle but it does tell you what you need to know. The back of the bottle has a slightly darker green label stuck to it, this contains the name of the product along with various product information including a bit about the conditioner, the ingredients and warnings, again all of the writing is in white, although this stands out better than it does on the front of the bottle making it easier to read.
The actual conditioner is of a very thick consistency as is the case with most conditioners, it is a very pale green colour and has a milky appearance to it. I had not idea what this conditioner was going to smell like, and for me the fragrance is quite important, I don't particularly want to put something on my hair that smells horrible. When I first smelt the fragrance of conditioner I was pleased to discover that it had a lovely fragrance, it actually reminded me of lemon sherbet sweets, lemon verbena is actually one of the ingredients in the conditioner and this fragrance is quite dominant. it also has a sort of sherbet fragrance as well. I applied the conditioner to my hair after I had rinsed the shampoo off, I found that I needed an average sized amount of the conditioner for my hair compared to other conditioners I had used. I did wonder whether I would need to use more as it was so cheap, however this was not the case, I do need to use a lot of conditioner on my hair as it is so thick and also bleached, however with this conditioner I didn't need to use any more than normal. I used the conditioner in the normal way, massaging it into my hair and leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing it off. I found the conditioner very easy to rinse out which was ideal as there's nothing worse than having to spend ages trying to rinse the conditioner out of your hair.
There are no real major warnings with this product other than the standard ones you get with a conditioner which is to avoid contact with your eyes and should this occur rinse with clean water. This is the only warning that appears on the back of the bottle, obviously some people may not suit this conditioner so should any reaction occur you should stop using immediately.
My Senses Celestial Shine Conditioner is only available from Tesco as it is their own range. In our local Tesco you can only buy the conditioner in a 400ml bottle and this costs just £1.65, although I think I may have got mine a little cheaper due to an introductory offer, however even at full price it is excellent value for money. I would say it lasts for an average length of time, personally as I have said I do go through conditioner rather quickly so even the larger bottles do not last me that long, however this bottle lasted me the same length of time as some of the more expensive ranges which come in the same sized bottle. In my opinion this is product is definitely worth the money, for a cheap product it is of an excellent quality.
So far I have been extremely pleased with my Tesco Conditioner, it has proved to be of an excellent quality, once I have conditioned my hair and dried it it feels extremely soft despite the fact that it is bleached. My hair is naturally wavy and ends up quite frizzy if I blow dry it, however once I have straightened it my hair looks lovely and sleek. This conditioner is said to leave your hair with a dazzling shine, once I have styled my hair after using the conditioner I do think it looks shiny and it looks very healthy.
I particularly like the lemon sherbet fragrance of this conditioner, and it leaves my hair feeling extremely clean. Personally I think that this is an excellent quality conditioner for such a cheap price, I did wonder how well it would work on my hair as some cheaper conditioners I have tried in the past have not worked at all purely due to the thickness of my hair and the fact that it is bleached and straightened on a daily basis, however with this conditioner my hair is left feeling very soft, and looking clean, fresh, healthy and shiny. The conditioner is also sold at an excellent price which certainly is not reflected in the quality of it. This is definitely a conditioner I would recommend to anyone and one that I will be buying in the future, its definitely worth the money
