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. 🙂
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…
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.
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.
I found a Wonder Woman shower gel and shampoo set – and the matching fragrance as a roll-on! And I bought 5 nail products – 2 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!

Hi there! You may remember that I picked up a few different Harmony hair products at Family Bargains (R.I.P. Family Bargains) a while back. OK, of course you don’t remember – but you can read about the other two shampoo and conditioner combos if you click here and here. But now, let’s look at Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner With Ginseng Extract.
The shampoo is really nice. It’s very gentle – but at the same time it does a great job cleansing my hair and my scalp. I think this is one of the best clarifying shampoos I’ve ever had! This shampoo would definitely be gentle enough for people with dry hair – after all, that’s the hair type this shampoo is aimed at!
The conditioner is very good too. Whilst it’s not as good as the original Herbal Essences conditioners (they’re my holy grail products for a reason), it makes my hair feel soft and silky without weighing it down or making it feel greasy. Very nice!
Another thing I love about these Harmony products is their fragrance. Whilst the shampoo and the conditioner don’t smell exactly like a certain fragrance, they strongly remind me of all those popular ‘nude’ fragrances like J Lo Glow or Narciso Rodriguez. So if you like ‘nude’ fragrances or if you buy your hair products based on what they smell like, give these Harmony products a try!
If you’re interested, Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal products with Ginseng Extract are currently available in discount stores. The products are available as 250ml for 99p or £1 each.

Hi there! Not too long ago I had Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner with Mulberry Extract. I found those products decent, so I tried another Harmony combo. Now meet Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal shampoo & conditioner with Jasmine Extract. These two products promise extra shine for coloured hair. Now let’s see if they’re any good. 🙂
The shampoo is quite good. It lathers up nicely, and whilst it cleanses my hair and my scalp properly, it’s not too harsh. The conditioner isn’t that great. It’s not very effective at detangling my long, curly hair. So I have to double-condition just to get all the knots out. I think the conditioner would probably be OK for fine, straight or short hair – but it’s simply not good enough for long, thick and curly hair.
I also think the jasmine fragrance is very strong. However, this is only from the bottle and in the shower. As soon as the products are rinsed out, that overpowering smell is gone and my hair smells of the most wonderful jasmine flowers.
In terms of shine I’m not sure if these products have done much. They didn’t make my hair appear dull, but I don’t think they made my hair extra shiny. So I would say these products maintained my hair’s natural sheen.

Hi there! Today’s post is about Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal shampoo and conditioner with Mulberry Extract. I found these products at my local Family Bargains store. I’ve never seen these before, but they were really cheap (99p each). So I thought I should give the shampoo and conditioner a try. 🙂
These two products are aimed at people with normal to fine hair. The shampoo claims to be volumising, and the conditioner claims not to weigh hair down. Sounds great, doesn’t it? OK, now let’s see how this shampoo and conditioner combo fared.
The shampoo really is volumising. I noticed a difference after the third wash. So yes, the shampoo does what it promises! The conditioner is OK. It really doesn’t weigh hair down, but it’s not the most suitable conditioner for long, thick and curly hair. However, I think this conditioner would work really well for ladies with fine hair.
I’m not in love with the fragrance of these products. They smell a tad too soapy for my liking. The next person might love the scent, but it doesn’t tickle my fancy.
What I really like about these two products is that they don’t make my hair greasy. I do wash my hair every morning – no matter what. But it’s nice to know I could probably skip a wash if I really had to. 🙂
I might buy this shampoo & conditioner combo again. And I would definitely recommend these products to people who have fine or straight hair and want more volume.
Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal products with Mulberry Extract are currently available in discount stores. Family Bargains has the 250ml bottles for 99p. I guess most other discount stores charge about as much – or as little. 🙂
