100% Awesome – Alberto Balsam Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam’s Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose & Pink Grapefruit. I bought these 2 products quite some time ago when they were on special (£1 each), and I’ve finally managed to try them.

These products are aimed at people with fine or flat hair, and they promise fullness and a healthy look. And guess what, these 2 products are simply awesome! Read on, I’ll tell you more! 🙂

The shampoo feels amazing on my head. It feels clarifying, but it’s  also sensationally soft! The formula is pretty much perfect! The conditioner is fantastic too. It feels very conditioning, and it detangles my hair with ease. It actually feels like a “soft & smooth” conditioner. Brilliant!

I’m also happy that these 2 products make my hair appear fuller. And yes, at the same time my hair feels soft and smooth. Alberto Balsam delivers on its promise again! Oh, one more thing – these two products smell divine. The fragrance is perfectly natural, and it’s the perfect mix of rose and grapefruit. Gorgeous!

To sum it up… Alberto Balsam’s Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose & Pink Grapefruit mop the floor with comparable (yet pricier) offerings from brands like L’Oréal and Pantene. I paid £1 (special offer) each for the 300ml shampoo and 300ml conditioner. Alberto Balsam Blends products are usually £2 each which is still fantastic value. 🙂

Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I picked up these two items when they were on special for £1 each at my local Asda. It’s a great deal, I know! 🙂 But let’s not discuss my bargain hunting. Let’s get to the review!

The shampoo smells lovely. Many peach-scented products smell of peach skin, but this shampoo smells like the actual fruit. It’s fruity, but it’s not artificially sweet. I like it! I also think this shampoo cleanses my hair well. And at the same time it’s not harsh. Very nice!

The conditioner is good too. It’s quite thin, but it conditions and detangles my hair surprisingly well. And the pleasant peach fragrance really lingers. Awesome stuff!

I don’t think these two products make my hair particularly shiny. But I would say they help maintain my hair’s natural shine. I’m enjoying these products very much and I will buy them again, no doubt!

Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner are available as 300ml for £1.50 each.

Alberto Balsam Mandarin and Papaya Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam’s Mandarin and Papaya shampoo and conditioner. These two products are aimed at people with normal or dry hair. I’d like to think of my hair as normal, so I thought these products would be perfect for me to try. And I’m not disappointed at all. Here’s why.

The shampoo is great. It smells fresh and fruity and it cleanses my hair and my scalp nicely. The shampoo is powerful, but gentle. Great stuff! The conditioner is just as nice. It detangles my long curls without any problems and without weighing my hair down. And it makes my hair feel super soft and silky. I love it!

I think this shampoo / conditioner combo is much better than some of the branded stuff out there. It’s not as good as Herbal Essences’ originals line, but it’s definitely better than most of Garnier’s offerings.

Alberto Balsam has recently revamped its entire line. And apparently they ‘improved’ the formulas. So I will have to check what exactly they’ve changed and if the new formulas are as good as the ‘old’ ones. If they are, Alberto Balsam’s Mandarin and Papaya shampoo and conditioner will become beauty staples!

Alberto Balsam’s shampoos and conditioners are available for £1 each. The old bottles are 400ml, and the new ones are 350ml – but that’s still great value.

Alberto Balsam Pink Grapefruit & Guava

Hi there! Earlier this year I have rediscovered Alberto Balsam products. I was quite pleased with the products I tried recently, so I wanted to give Superfruits Pink Grapefruit and Guava shampoo and conditioner for normal or oily hair a try too.

At first let me say that this is my favourite Alberto Balsam scent. The other two Superfruits scents (Mango and Passionfruit, Mulberry and Acai Berry) are really nice, but Pink Grapefruit and Guava smells absolutely delicious. This scent should be part of Alberto Balsam’s standard assortment.

Now let me talk about the products: The shampoo lathers well and it does a great job cleansing my hair and scalp without feeling too harsh. My husband loves this shampoo too – for the same reasons. He even asked me to buy it more often!

The conditioner is quite decent. Whilst it’s nothing special, it does what it says on the bottle. It detangles my hair without weighing it down, so I can’t complain.

In summary, I’m really happy with this shampoo and conditioner combo. Based on my recent positive experience with Alberto Balsam I expected these products to be good, but the fresh and fruity scent has absolutely won me over. I will definitely buy these two products again.

Alberto Balsam Superfruits Pink Grapefruit and Guava Shampoo and Conditioner are available as 400ml each. They’re £1.29 each at the big supermarkets, but you can find these products for £1 in Poundstores.

Alberto Balsam Mulberry and Acai Berry Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! When I hit the local Poundstore a few weeks ago, I spotted a couple of interesting looking new products by Alberto Balsam. Their standard assortment doesn’t impress me much, but their current limited edition Superfruits looked promising. There are three different scents available and I opted for Mulberry and Acai Berry.

On the bottles it says ‘extra nourishing for coloured or damaged hair’. I’ve been using the shampoo and the conditioner daily for about 3 weeks now and I would have guessed they’re for people with rather oily hair. The shampoo is really powerful – it sucks the grease right out of my pores. Wow!

My husband (oily skin + hair) is using this shampoo too. He said it is one of his favourites to use after the gym because it cleanses his hair and scalp so well. The conditioner is alright. It’s nothing special, but it’s not bad either. It detangles my hair without making it feel heavy or greasy, so it does the job.
