When this beauty box from Boots landed on my door step, just before Christmas, I couldn’t quite believe my luck! Not only was it packed full of all the everyday essentials, but they were all full size, and had arrived just in time for my New Year celebrations. When a box weighs as much as this, and is wrapped so beautifully, it’s a struggle to contain the excitement when opening it. I think I may have let out a little squeal of happiness! 
Included in the box was a range of hair products, many of which I use frequently, and a couple I hadn’t tried before. The Batiste XXL volume spray was an absolute life saver over the festive period. My regular Batiste had run out and I always carry one with me when staying at a friends. 
I had also not long ran out of hair spray, so this Loreal Elnett hairspray came in handy when trying out an up-do, with my shorter length hair on Boxing Day, My Nan swore by this hairspray, and the smell reminds me of her. Not in a horrible way, but a comforting way. I can see why she loved it so much, it has super strength staying power!

One product I hadn’t used before was the Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil. I now use this on damp hair, every time I was my hair, by using a small blob and running it through the ends of my hair. It creates a lovely silky finish to my hair and helps to protect it from my hair dryer and straighteners routine. 
I’m still yet to test the Toni & Guy spray wax and Umberto Giannini curling jelly. I’m not sure how well these two would work on my hair, I’m not normally one for wax or jelly’s, as I feel like they make my hair quite stiff afterwards. But I should give them a go. 
I’m also excited to try the Tresemme Make Waves hairspray. I’ve used a number of their hairsprays before, and they’ve always been really good, with great hold. So I’m sure this one is likely to be similar.

Boots has always been, and will always be, a store that I shop in regularly. Working in central London and living in a more rural suburb, there are no real competitors. And by having a Boots Advantage card, it means I’m a loyal customer wanting to increase my points on purchases! I recently lost my purse, meaning I lost my card, and when my new one arrived they very kindly included a 200 point voucher. So of course I immediately headed to our local shop in Crouch End!
