Palmolive Pomegranate & Jojoba Oil Conditioner
Advantages: Smells divine, leaves hair soft and tangle free
Disadvantages: None at all
I love my beauty products from Yves Rocher as many readers familiar with my reviews will probably know, although these items are my little piece of luxury and are generally used for pampering only. The rest of the time I buy products which are suitable for the whole family and preferably if they are on sale or cheap in the first place!
A few months ago I picked up a wonderful shampoo by Palmolive from their Naturals range which was Pomegranate fragrance and aimed at people with coloured hair (I dye mine). I was so impressed with how soft and clean it left my hair feeling and thought if I could get hold of a matching conditioner this would enhance the softness even more. I purchased my bottle of shampoo from my local Poundstretcher costing just £1 but was disappointed to see only the shampoo..until recently. I popped in a few weeks ago for something totally unrelated and happened to walk past the end of the aisle where the toiletries were and straight away noticed both the shampoo and conditioner this time with both being sold at just £1 so stocked up on both.
**P & P**
The packaging is similar to that of the shampoo - which is a deep red in colour, in a 'bullet' shape plastic bottle which is wider from the front view but quite slimline from the side angle giving the indication it holds more than 300ml it claims.
To access the conditioner there is a flip open lid which is situated at the base of the bottle and is both easy to open and fasten with a secure 'click' each time on closure. I often store hair products/ shower gels in similar designs on their base but find they can sometimes leak though I'm pleased to say I've had no problems concerning leakage with this conditioner.
**What Palmolive has to say about this**
"...Palmolive brilliant colour condiitioner contains a unique blend of jojoba oil, pomegranate extract and UV-filter. Its caring formula protects and nourishes coloured hair, increases its smoothness and leaves it with a brilliant colour shine..."
My review will now discuss my experience of using this product - Palmolive Naturals Conditioner 'Brilliant Colour with Jojoba Oil and Pomegranate'..
I've been using this conditioner now consecutively for the two weeks since I purchased it and have had both the same results from using with the coordinating shampoo as well as different brands of shampoos.
On applying to my freshly rinsed hair in the shower I found this conditioner to feel ultra smooth against my wet hair and could instantly feel it moisturising deep down the second it was applied. The product is easy to access as once the lid is opened it gently emits from the packaging with just the smallest of squeezes needed to the bottle. The conditioner is has a pearl esque` appearance to it as even though it is a bright white colour with mainly a matte finish there is a slight iridescent shimmer to it in certain lights which makes the product look far more expensive than it's RRP £1 cost.
The aroma of the conditioner is both rich and fruity but with a more berry scent that reminded me of raspberry more than pomegranate in my opinion, though is still very appealing and alluring to use. The consistency is neither thick nor thin but the texture has a very creamy essence to it which suggests on first using that even though the product doesn't seem very thick it will still give sufficient moisturisation.
I've found that by leaving the product on my hair for around 4 to 5 minutes it gives it chance to fully penetrate any dry ends that look in need of helping and this seems to be the right length of time for my own hair. If left on for just one or two minutes it doesn't care for my hair in the same way as leaving for 5 minutes and too long leaves my hair too soft to the point it is impossible to style.
Once the 5 minutes or so are up I've found it easy to rinse away and even when wet my hair instantly feels soft which is always a good sign with a shampoo or conditioner I've found.
Once towel dried, my hair has been almost tangle free when blow drying and has felt smooth and soft once fully dry with no flyaway ends. The fragrance is noticeable even after my hair is dry but is stronger still when used with the matching shampoo in the same fragrance.
For £1 this is an absolute bargain and I've found that much of the product is still remaining despite using almost daily, thus making it an extremely economical purchase. Even though I bought it primarily for my own hair my husband has used it on several occasions on his short naturally dark hair and has also commented on how soft it has left his own hair.
My hair is both easy to style after using, tangle free and has a nice healthy sheen to it so it's scores top points as far as I'm concerned.
I've been really impressed with this conditioner just as much as I was the shampoo and think for the price it's a complete bargain as many 'cheap' (in price) hair products don't leave my hair feeling anywhere near as soft as this and it's a product I not only fully recommend but will continue to buy myself and use in the future.
Full marks for Palmolive from me and I will look at trying the other fragranced shampoos in the collection.
Summary: A fantastic conditioner that leaves my locks smooth and shiny
