If there is one haircare product that you should NEVER travel without, especially if you are a fine-haired, oily scalped gal like me, it is dry shampoo. When I was looking for a travel-sized dry shampoo from Batiste, I was disappointed to find out that they do not stock a mini of their Divine and Dark variant in India. Still being a loyal lover of Batiste, I picked up the mini that WAS available, the Fruity and Cheeky Cherry Variant. Here is why I love this dry shampoo as much as the other variants from Batiste that I have already reviewed on the blog.
First of all, let’s get this out of the way, I love the scent of cherry -so anything cherry-scented has to float my boat. Additionally, this particular dry shampoo, despite not being tinted, does not leave much white cast at all on the hair. The small amount of white cast that it does give can easily be taken care of by brushing the product through the hair. Also, it leaves 2nd-day hair looking extremely fresh and bouncy for the next two days, which is more than what I expect from a dry shampoo. This is definitely what you need when you are travelling to attend a special event or for work and don’t have much time or styling tools on your hands.
Overall, this mini (50ml) dry shampoo spray can priced at INR 299 only is a handbag and travel essential for sure. Whether your hair needs a quick refresh at the end of the day or you want to extend your shampooed hair look for a couple of extra days on vacay, you can’t go wrong with this product!
So I have been travelling a lot lately and have been investing in a number of travel kits because I am simply too lazy to pour out the products that I already own into smaller bottles. The Nature’s Co travel kits have been a saviour for the lazy gal in me and today I will be talking about their Business Edit Travel Kit which contains hair care and body care products. Read on to find out how this kit fared for me.
First things first, the picture of the kit on Amazon shows a wooden comb as well but mine did not come with a comb. However, it did come with three products from the Lemon Peel range – a body lotion, a body wash and a soap. I feel that the inclusion of lemon peel products in the kit is an excellent idea because the refreshing lemon scent is perfect after a long day of travel. Both the body wash and the soap lather very easily and leave the zesty scent of lemon on the skin, which is further enhanced by the body lotion that also keeps the skin hydrated all day long.
Coming to the hair care products, the kit contains the Watercress Hair Cleanser and Hair Conditioner from the brand. These too have a refreshing aqua scent that is perfect for when you are travelling. The shampoo lathers quite well and cleanses the hair and scalp quite effectively and I love its light-weight formula. The conditioner, on the other hand, did not work too well for me. I have very fine and knotty hair and tend to use a lot of conditioner as a hair mask to smooth out my hair. However, this one left my hair looking limp and slightly greasy. Maybe I used too much, but then I always need more conditioner than most people!
All the items come in 30ml bottles which is a very decent size, and the kit comes with a sturdy and roomy makeup bag that you can reuse even after your trip. Overall, I feel that the price of INR 595 seems decent considering the typical pricing of The Nature’s Co products. This kit is not just ideal for those who travel a lot but also for trying out a number of products without having to invest in the full-sized items. So if you are a hopping bug or a lover of minis, do check out this handy kit from The Nature’s Co!
