Gliss Satin Relax Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Satin Relax Shampoo & Conditioner. I’ve already finished this hair care combo a few days ago (well, I finished the conditioner, and I have passed the leftover shampoo on to my husband). So let me tell you how I got on with Gliss’ Satin Relax products.

First of all, these two products are aimed at people with rebellious or frizzy hair. And they promise to tame hair, to prevent frizz even in humid conditions, and to make hair smoother and shinier. Sounds great! Now onto the review!

Gliss Satin Relax Shampoo is really nice. It’s clarifying, but it feels creamy and gentle. I’ve enjoyed using this shampoo. Gliss Satin Relax Conditioner isn’t perfect, but it does the job. The conditioner is quite thick, but it conditions and detangles my hair just fine.

And I think these products work! OK, my hair doesn’t really frizz, and I’m pretty sure that’s because I use conditioner after every wash. However, I’ve used other ‘taming’ hair products before, and all of them flattened my hair – whilst Gliss’ Satin Relax products kept my (frizz-free) hair in shape. I also think these products smell quite nice. The fragrance is similar to the Gliss Liquid Silk fragrance – albeit stronger and without that cute powdery cotton note.

I would recommend these Gliss Satin Relax products! If you want to try Gliss products, there are many bargain stores that stock them for 99p or £1 each. The shampoos are 250ml, the conditioners are 200ml.

Poundland Clearance Haul – New Stuff & 50% Off Everything!

Hi there! A week ago I mentioned that one of the local Poundland stores is closing down and that I might stock up on stuff… well, I did! The store is closing this Saturday, 11 March, and as of now everything’s 50% off! So let me show you what I bought. 🙂
haul-57
Poundland had 2 eyeshadow brushes and 2 foundation brushes left. They’re mine now. I think Poundland’s make-up brushes are really good. I’ve been using all sorts of different make-up brushes from Poundland for years – and I have yet to come across a dud. I also bought 4 nail art brush sets, and 2 sharpener & eyebrow brush sets. I wanted the sharpeners, but I don’t need the eyebrow brushes. But I can see that these eyebrow brushes might come in handy for nail art…
haul-54
Whilst almost all the shampoos were gone, the store had lots of conditioners left. I picked up 3 Gliss conditioners (I can pick up the matching shampoos elsewhere). They had all sorts of different conditioners, but I only bought conditioners that I actually like and use. The ones I got for myself are Ultimate Volume, Ultimate Colour and Liquid Silk.

I got myself another Daily Defense Keratin conditioner (bought at Poundstretcher) and Alberto Balsam’s Mandarin & Papaya shampoo and conditioner.
haul-56
And there’s more hair stuff! I bought another Alberto Balsam conditioner – this one’s Stunning Shine. And I picked up another Harmony Hair Indulgence shampoo and conditioner combo. And I found one more L’Oréal Deep Conditioner.
haul-58
I found a Wonder Woman shower gel and shampoo set – and the matching fragrance as a roll-on! And I bought 5 nail products2 L’Oréal polishes, 1 Poundland glitter topper, 1 Poundland cuticle oil and 1 Poundland nail hardener.

This is what I bought. I paid £14 in total for all these goodies!

Poundland & Bargain Store Beauty Haul

Hi there! When I went to back to Poundland the other day, I felt like I hit the jackpot. I found Nails Inc. polishes for £1 each! I got Old Bond Street, Hampstead Gardens, Royal Arcade, Gatwick and Chelsea.

Not too long ago Nails Inc. came up with new bottle designs – so the ‘old’ bottles have to go now. Nails Inc. polishes are usually more than £10 each (I’d never spend that much money on a mediocre polish). So thank you, Nails Inc., for redoing your bottle design and for letting people buy your old polishes for less than 10% of the normal price! 🙂

I also bought more hand cream (which I don’t really need more of at the moment) and a small eyeshadow trio. I got Vaseline’s Intensive Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac. And I picked up a Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Trio in 2 Naughty n Nude. And I couldn’t resist when I saw another promising hand cream – I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Hand Cream. Another £3 (in total) well spent at Poundland.
Sale08
I’ve never used any TRESemmé products (commitment issues – their bottles are too big). But I picked up a regular-sized Renewal Hair & Scalp Deep Conditioning Masque. I’m looking forward to trying it! And I also bought a Pantene Pro-V Nutri-Plus Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner. So that’s two more products for £2 in total.
Sale07
Last but not least – I also went to B&M Bargains. Generally I prefer Home Bargains (they’re cheaper), but every now and then I swing by the local B&M to see what they’ve got. I picked up a limited edition shower gel and two Gliss hair care products which I haven’t had before. Original Source’s Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea Shower sounds really lush. And I’ll soon find out how Gliss’ Satin Relax Shampoo & Conditioner pan out. I spent £3 in total for these three products.
Sale09
I’m super happy with the bargains. 🙂 I spent £13 in total and I got so many products! My husband isn’t happy that our toiletries stash is growing again (yeah, I’m working on it…), but he appreciates that we’ll never run out of toiletries and that everything in our stash was half price or less. 🙂

Did you pick up any bargains lately? Have you tried any of the products I bought? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner. I really enjoy using these products every once in a while. Here’s why.

The shampoo is great. It makes my hair soft and silky without weighing it down. The fragrance is gorgeous. I would describe it as a mix of silk and cashmere. The new improved formula of the conditioner isn’t as good as the old one. Out of the bottle the conditioner is quite thick. But I always mix it with a splash of water to make it creamier and easier to use.

In summary, I’m really happy with Gliss’ Liquid Silk shampoo and conditioner. Not only do these products make my hair smell lovely. They also make my hair feel soft and silky. I would recommend these products. And I will definitely buy them again.

Gliss Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo (250ml) & Conditioner (200ml) are available at discount stores for about £1 each. Great value!

If you are considering buying Gliss’ Ultimate Volume or Oil Nutritive products, have a look at my reviews to find out if they would be suitable for you. If you think that the fragrance of a hair care product is more important than anything else, I’m sure you’ll be pleased with all of Gliss’ offerings. Some of the products smell quite strong from the bottle, but don’t let that put you off. 🙂

Gliss Ultimate Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss’ Ultimate Volume Shampoo and Conditioner which I am currently using. I’ve had quite a few different Gliss products, and – with the exception of the Oil Nutritive products – they were all pretty decent.

I am very happy with Gliss’ Ultimate Volume Shampoo because it really does what it says on the bottle. Since the first wash my hair felt thicker and it’s got more volume. I also love that the shampoo is a clear gel. I know most people won’t care, but I’m really bored of creamy white shampoos.

Gliss’ Ultimate Volume Conditioner is quite good too. Whilst in the shower I don’t feel the softening properties I would expect from every conditioner. However, once dry, my hair feels soft and silky.

Both products smell fresh and clean of citruses, but the scent is very subtle – this is just what I want in summer! And I would be happy to buy these products again. Gliss Ultimate Volume Shampoo (250ml) and Conditioner (200ml) are available at discount stores for about £1 each.

Gliss Oil Nutritive Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi! Not too long ago I spotted Gliss Oil Nutritive shampoo and conditioner for “longer hair, prone to split ends” at the local 99p Store. I’ve had a couple of different Gliss hair products before so I thought I’d give these a try too.

But… I don’t like the Oil Nutritive products at all. I believe that the shampoo and the conditioner might work for people with short, straight and thin hair, but my hair is long, thick and curly, and I almost despaired. I’ll just sum it up in a few key sentences.

Pros: The shampoo is very gentle, and both the shampoo and the conditioner smell of juicy mango. Delicious!

Cons: The oils from these products are very present in my hair and this makes my hair feel greasy. A couple of hours after washing my hair I want to wash it again. Not good. I also feel that these products rob my hair of its flexibility and elasticity. I don’t even want to touch my hair because I’m scared of damaging it. Again, not good.

The conditioner is not very effective – I’ve used up the 200 ml bottle in seven days. But it’s no surprise considering I had to condition my hair twice after each wash. Why? Well, the first round of conditioner did not do much in terms of softening my hair or getting rid of knots. This is certainly not consistent with the improved combability which the bottle promises. So I always had to use another handful of product to detangle my hair.

While I don’t believe this shampoo and conditioner combo would cause any long-term damage to my hair, I am not happy that I lost about twice as much hair as normal with each wash. Anyway, the conditioner is now used up. The shampoo (the bottle is still 75% full) will find a new role somewhere around the house – since it smells so nice, maybe I can use it to wash my scarves for the next couple of months…
