Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, and this means that today’s post is about my favourite products in June. As always, I picked my Top 3 and the honourable mentions from all the products I reviewed this past month. Let’s start with the Top 3!
3rd place – DearBoo Collagen & Canola Flower Everyday Mask
This DearBoo face mask is simply amazing. I love it! I tried 2 different masks from this brand, and I think they’re both bulk-purchase worthy!
Runner-Up – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen
This body cream is simply outstanding! The texture, the feel, the fragrance – everything’s wow!
WINNER – Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Shampoo & Conditioner
I’ve never loved any hair product the way I’ve loved (and continue to love) Herbal Essences’ original shampoos and conditioners. I think these products truly mop with the floor with pretty much everything else out there!
Now let’s get to the honourable mentions! I’m impressed with Poundland’s Retinol Serum and Poundland’s Retinol Night Cream. Boots’ No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator is another fantastic product which I’m still enjoying.
Imperial Leather’s Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel is one of the best shower gels I’ve used so far this year (and it’s probably in the top 10 of shower gels I’ve used over the past 2 years). And NSPA’s Detoxifying Clay Mask With Charcoal & Menthol was awesome too!
Have you tried any of these products, or would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to let me know via the comments, and thanks for stopping by! x

Hi there! If you read the original Holy Grail Of Hair Care post, you know I love the classic Herbal Essences products. The newer Herbal Essences products (in the curvy bottles) don’t do anything for me – I tried three different shampoo and conditioner combos but I really didn’t like them at all. (And neither did my husband.) So I’ll stick to my original Herbal Essences favourites! 🙂
OK, let’s look at the shampoos first. 🙂 The Herbal Essences Shimmering Colour and Sensuously Smooth shampoos are amazing. They smell of tropical flowers (this line was once called Rainforest Flowers) and they make my scalp and my hair feel incredibly clean. But these shampoos are very gentle at the same time. They’re perfect!
The conditioners are better than what I could dream up if it was my mission in life to dream up the perfect conditioner. Nothing detangles hair the way Herbal Essences’ Classics conditioners do. And nothing else makes could make hair feel silkier or look shinier. These conditioners offer tons of moisture without weighing hair down. Why other manufacturers of hair care products don’t copy these conditioners is something I’ll never understand…
Now let me say a few more words about the two product lines. The Shimmering Colour shampoo and conditioner really work for freshly coloured hair. Normally my hair colour bleeds quite a bit for a few days after I’ve dyed my hair, but this shampoo and conditioner combo seems to make the colour hold on to my hair. Brilliant! These two products are even better than L’Oréal’s Colour Protect offerings!
The Herbal Essences Sensuously Smooth products really do what they’re supposed to. You may remember my last hair post about Pantene’s Colour Protect & Smooth products. OK, you don’t remember. But that’s OK. 🙂 I said that Pantene’s products really make my hair feel smooth. Now, a few weeks ago I emptied the Pantene conditioner, and I went on to use these Herbal Essences products. And guess what – my hair is so smooooooth, it’s insane! Verdict? Herbal Essences Sensuously Smooth mops the floor with Pantene!
I think, along with Herbal Essences Classics Moisture Balance and Silk N’ Shine, Herbal Essences (Rainforest Flowers) Shimmering Colour and Sensuouly Smooth are the best hair products out there. Unfortunately they were relaunched as a limited edition, and they have now disappeared from the shelves – but I’ve stocked up when I noticed them disappearing, so I’ll be OK for a while. However, I still hope that Herbal Essences will relaunch them again. Fingers crossed!
