Mini review #15 - Concoction Shampoo and Conditioner

As some of you may know, I used to work at Lookfantastic on the Beauty Hub, blogging about all things beauty and generally being a bit of an SEO wizard (srsly, this picture says it all).

As well as the day to day elements of my job, it was fortunately one that allowed me and my colleagues to sample the odd beauty product to see what we thought before we stocked something. One such product was from the brand new Concoction range, and to say I was excited was an understatement.

Concoction specialise in customised haircare, you pick a 'ShampYou Base Blend' (I went for the Bakhour one as I'd heard good things about the smell!) and then you pick two shots of the Super Serums that you add to the shampoo in the top of the bottle before using it. I chose two of the Beautiful Brunette serums, but you can mix and match depending on your hair type and colour which is really cool! I finished my order with the Cashmere and White Lily Conditioner and I was ready to go!


The first thing I noticed when using this Shampoo and Conditioner was the smell. Oh, the smell. The shampoo is a sort of sweet, musky scent that isn't too overpowering whilst the conditioner is sweet with a floral hint of lily - making it really nice and fresh.

After washing my hair, it felt really soft and shiny, so given the unique selling point, heavenly smell and super soft hair, you can imagine I was pretty pleased with this product. But it wasn't until about four days later that I became super impressed; when I realised that not only had I not washed my hair again that week - but I hadn't actually needed to. Now, I'm not someone who washes their hair everyday, but it needs it at least two or three times a week to stop it looking dull or dry. However, with this, it's no exaggeration to say that I only need to wash it the once (twice if we're being picky). I have no idea why that is, because I've been touching my hair and shoving it up half way through the day just as much as I normally would.

So, despite this range being a touch on the expensive side (a set will cost around £30 altogether), I can wholeheartedly say I recommend it. Not just because it smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling soft, but because of how much time and effort it is saving me! It makes my hair feel super clean for those crucial few days in between washes, so much so that I am now washing my hair less. And you know what means, less time spent washing hair and more time doing ANYTHING else in the world because washing your hair is really boring. Amazing!

What do you think of the Concoction range? Have you tried it? You can (of course) shop the full range on Lookfantastic, and you can check out their official website here!
