During a recent promotion, Swiss based company CoolBrandz gave a few lucky bloggers the opportunity to test some new Garnier products (which were about to hit the Swiss Market). As I’m currently in Switzerland, the following goodies were kindly sent to me to try out. This latest edition is called ‘Pracht Auffuller’ (‘Full & Plush’). It’s the first haircare range with Fibra-Cylane, Pomegranate and active fruit concentrate that penetrates and plumps the hair, giving a full and voluptuous look. Inside my box from Coolbrandz where the following -
* Krafigendes Shampoo (Fortifying Shampoo)
* Kraftigende Spulung - (Fortifying Conditioner)
*Ends Plumper Serum (Plumping Serum)
*Pflege Finish (Voluptuous Blow-out Finishing Spray)
After using these products exclusively for the past week, I can report some great results! Using the Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner my hair feeling clean, soft and refreshed. The conditioner was a joy to use; non-greasy and yet it detangled my hair like a dream. I’ve said it before but I do shampoo my hair twice, then condition (old hairdressing habit). The shampoo is very concentrated and I really didn’t need much product, even in Zurich where the water is harder than at home. The Plumping Serum is a little different to what I’m used to. The consistency is thicker than I expected although very easy to work with. You simply apply 1 or 2 pumps onto the ends of damp hair. I used 2 pumps as my hair is below my shoulders. Although the serum is thick, it feels creamy and is as pliable as an oily serum if you know what I mean.
Once my hair was dried and styled, I was pleasantly surprised by the Voluptuous Blow-Out Finishing Spray. Part of me expected this to be similar to a dry shampoo or texturising powder, but it’s not! The spray is a super fine ‘Micro-powder’ so you barely notice anything out of the ordinary; yet somehow I found my hair had a fabulous boost in volume. It felt very natural too and also has a medium hold to it.
