I love the elegant packaging even though it comes at such a affordable price (at least in the UK pricing).
This is definitely not one of those products you need to hide in your bathroom cabinets, it’s chic enough to leave out on the shelves or in the shower as a “bathroom accessory”. Yeah yeah I know, only a beauty junkie deluxe would call beauty products accessories for the bathroom lol!
SCENT & FIRST IMPRESSION
When I opened the jar and applied the mask I was brought back to the first time I lived in London, I probably used a few products from Charles Worthington back then. It is scary but fascinating how much memories we are connected through scents. Anyway I loved the smell back then and still love it, so for me this product smells like London which might sound pretty strange (haha!), so in other words it smells lovely!
I did notice it made my hair a bit glossier especially towards the ends. I’m always very careful never to use any hair masks or treatments in the scalp thought as it can lead to bot greasy hair and clogged pores.
Only use mask/treatments on the lengths and ends of the hair (very important)!
I haven’t used it long enough to notice if it helps battle broken and split ends so time will tell.
PROS & CONS
It contains silicone which is not really an ideal ingredients when trying to get long, healthy hair. It coats the hair but it does not penetrated the hair, meaning no moisture can actually reach the hair fibre and boost the hair as many commercials claim. Instead it just coat the hair with a glossy surface.
Some studies means this can “glue” together split ends or avoid them from breaking, I can agree with this to some degree and that’s why I only recommend to use this type of products on the ends and not in the roots. As it is silicone that can cause the pores in the hair to clog up. So never use schampos or conditioners with silicone in the roots, that’s the key to long and healthy hair.
In Sweden it cost approx 130 SEK but in the UK it only cost 6£.
WORTH TO BUY?
Yes! Perfect for those on a tight budget or if you just enjoy trying different products.
