Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner. It appears that these products are exclusive to Asda, which is where I picked them up when they were on special (2 for £5 offer). Onto the review!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo is quite nice. It’s boring to look at (it’s one of those creamy white shampoos), but it feels cleansing without being harsh. The cocoa fragrance is pleasant, although I would have preferred a more chocolatey fragrance. It’s not Herbal Essences’ fault, but I just expect something chocolatey whenever I read cocoa (am I right, Anne Brooke?)…

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Conditioner is good, but not great. I love Herbal Essences’ original hair products, so I’m expecting this brand to be better than the competition. Whilst this conditioner helps me detangle my hair, and whilst it does make my hair feel soft, I do need quite a bit of product to achieve the desired result. The conditioner smells a bit “darker” than the shampoo. It smells like cocoa powder with a hint of incense. It’s not bad at all, but I really wanted a chocolate-scented hair care combo.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml for £4.50 each. I don’t think I’ll repurchase these 2 products, but I wouldn’t mind recommending them to people with normal hair.
