review: superdrug "chocolate brownie" dry shampoo

First and foremost, to all of my lovely new followers, welcome and thank you all for reading. I've been blogging barely a week yet, and I'm already becoming seriously addicted!

Last night I found out I had been given the Kreativ Blogger Award by the beautiful Jennifer (check out her blog here- you will not be disappointed!) And so, it is my job now to pass this award onto 10 other bloggers. I will be posting my winners later on so stay tuned to find out if you've been nominated :)

And now I have a little review for all of you lovely ladies (and gentlemen, if there is any at all reading this).

Yesterday, I was doing my usual run around all of my favourite shops for beauty buys, and came across Superdrug's own make dry shampoo. There was an offer at the front of the shop that caught my eye, buy 1 and get 2 free!  And all for the bargain price of £1.99 (usually the cost of one).  Plus the packaging looked cute.

Being a brunette, I chose "Chocolate Brownie", which is chocolate scented..obviously (and brown tinted).  Well, if I'm trying to cut down on chocolate, maybe I could replace eating it with smelling it? Actually, maybe not (I say, making my way through a Christmas selection box which has somehow miraculously survived being eaten by me, until now).  

With dry shampoo being an essential to ANY student's survival/stay clean kit, I just had to try it.  I mean, why get out of bed half an hour early just to wash your hair?  It's hard enough to get a good 8 hours in your bed, without putting boozy nights out, all-nighters to meet your deadlines, 5am bedtimes and general adolescent laziness into the equation.

So, this morning when I got up for work, I didn't wash my hair.  I was praying to god this dry shampoo actually worked, I was relying on it, as greasy lank hair is not a good look. worked absolutely brilliantly!

The smell was really sweet, it reminded me a bit of bourbon biscuits.  Plus, the rich brown tint in the dry shampoo stopped me looking like I was greying, which other brands of dry shampoo tend to do, even the tinted brown Batiste.  And most importantly, my hair went from lank to bouncy, yummy smelling and clean looking.  

I would most definately recommend this product to dry shampoo virgins, lovers, and even the haters- because if this product won't convert you then nothing will.  

There is a whole range to choose from, however at the minute, only "Away With The Fairies" Superdrug dry shampoo is available to buy online (click here to have a spy!), but you can find the full selection in your local Superdrug store.

:)  bargain price of £1.99 versus Batiste's £2.99 (or more)
:)  on offer at the minute for buy 1 get 2 free
:)  great value for money
:)  smells good enough to eat! but please don't, that's just stupid

:(  honestly can't think of any cons! I love this product <3

Who would I recommend this product to?
Brunette haired girls, who love a quick fix in the morning, or at any other time of the day to freshen up.  I think I'll probably skip washing my hair more often just so I can use this product which smells AMAZING!
