Garnier Ultimate Blends Review – The Delicate Soother

I have been using these new products by Garnier, this is the Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother range, with delicate oats. I picked these up just over a month ago and thought I would test them out before doing a post about them.

Picked up all three of the items that are in the range, the shampoo, conditioner and the hair milk. The hair milk was actually a little harder to find as it isn’t stocked in all the stores that the other two are, but I really wanted to try them all out together as that’s what is recommended.

I’d like to start by mentioning that Garnier have brought out quite a few different ranges suited to different hair types – for example the honey range. As far as I can tell they each have a shampoo, conditioner and a third hair styling product whether that be an oil, serum or heat protector etc.

I chose the Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother range as it states that it is suited to sensitive skin because of its inclusion of oat milk and rice cream which is very soothing on sensitive skin. I can often suffer from dry skin so it’s important for me to choose products that make it better not worse.

”Our ultimate blend for a sensitive scalp and fragile hair with Rice Cream & Oat Milk
Soothes scalp
Nourishes, softens & protects hair”

This is what the website states about the product, I mostly chose this because of the oat milk being included and because it states that it nourishes hair, which I was in need of!

I have been using nothing but these three productions on my hair for a little over a month now and I can honestly say it has made a great difference. I usually use Tresemme and haven’t changed to anything different for over a year and I honestly think that my hair is already in a better condition after just a month with this new product so I don’t think I’ll be going back.

My hair is a lot softer and has more of a shine, it doesn’t tangle anywhere near as much and it’s so much easier to brush now. I have quite long hair so any product that helps with tangles is a huge must.

Honestly the star of the three has to be the hair milk, it helps to protect against heat and it smells amazing. It can only be applied to wet hair so I always use this after washing my hair. The smell is quite strong and last a long time, I’ve had a lot of compliments on my new ‘perfume’ and have had to tell people it’s my hair! Of course I have been using all three together so I can’t comment on how well it works with other products but I can’t imagine not using this product after washing my hair now.

As I mentioned I usually use Tresemme and the bottles are quite large so I was worried about swapping to smaller bottles, but i have been using these for a month and have only used about half which is great. You really don’t need to use much in each wash. I wash my hair twice a week so I don’t go through a lot of shampoo anyway but I normally have to cover my hair in a lot of conditioner to de-tangle but with this product I’m not using anywhere near as much as I do with other products.

Overall I have loved testing out these products and I’ll definitely be re-purchasing when these run out! Let me know which of the different ranges you have used and if you would recommend trying any of the others, after trying these I’m more then happy to try the others!

Date Night: Red House

I went out with my boyfriend for tea last night at the Red House on the Quayside. Its a really nice pub with a great atmosphere.

Every Monday they have a ‘Pie and a Pint’ deal for £8.99. The sell varies different pies and there is an option of adding two pies to the meal also. You pick your pie, type of mash potato, peas and gravy. There are a lot of different options for each. This is menu:

The interior is really nice, it has a lot of different small rooms and a bar area. The room we sat in was at the back of the building behind the bar and it was all brick walls and at the back there are a lot of barrels on the wall.

For my meal I chose to have the ‘Spinach, Goats Cheese and Sweet Potato’ pie with onion chutney.

For mash potato I chose the mustard and honey and for gravy I chose red wine with mushy peas as a side.

My boyfriend chose to get the meal with two pies, he chose a ‘Chicken, Gammon and Leek’ pie with a ‘Mediterranean Vegetable and Goats Cheese’ pie. 
        
For mash he got garlic with red wine gravy and minted peas. 

It was a really nice meal, I loved the way you could choose each aspect of the meal and they have vegetarian options too. You also get your drink included, I was driving so I just ordered a coke and a glass of water to have with my meal.

I would really recommend coming here if your in the area, we come here a lot on weekends too for drinks.
