Schwarzkopf Essence ULTÎME Crystal Shine Finishing Oil

I had a hair cut last week and me being me, I decided that I needed something new to apply to my hair, post-styling, to give it that "just-outta-the-salon" feel every time. I figured that a serum or hair oil would be my best bet, as creams tend to make my hair feel greasy really quickly.

 I'd seen some adverts on TV regarding Claudia Schiffer and hair (I must have been paying some real attention...) and as I saw Schwarzkopf Essence ULTÎME Crystal Shine Finishing Oil, I made the link that this is what I'd been hearing about. 

Although described as a finishing oil, this product can be used pre-wash, on damp hair for pre-styling or on dry hair for a post-styled finish. It smells lovely, really giving you that professional salon feel. I love the little bottle, it fits into drawers yet can stand up on a dresser too - it's the little things, eh?
As for the actual effects of this product, it's as good, if not better than other oils I have tried. You can see that I raved about the VO5 Miracle Concentrate Elixir here, but my love for this finishing oil is much greater. It leaves your hair feeling silky smooth and it does exactly what it says on the tin; gives your hair a crystal shine. I have found that I prefer to apply this post-styling when going for a sleek, straight look, yet I tend to apply it to damp hair when I plan on going for waves/curls. 

This really is a lovely hair oil. I managed to grab it for £2.74 (RRP £5.49) in Superdrug! What a bargain, grab it while you can.

Love, Steph xxxx
