I was really excited when I bought these two, and after using them a couple of times thought it was love.  Having given them a more thorough testing though, I think my opinion may have changed.

Let's start with what's good about them.  I want to say the price (I got both of these on offer for £6), but now I come to look it up they're both listed at £4.07 at Boots.  Which is ok, but perhaps a little more than I like to spend on hairspray.  One thing that definitely is a plus point is the scent.  Neither of these smell stereotypically aerosol-y, instead they're really sweet and fruity.  It makes a lovely change to that normal hairspray smell and was a really nice surprise first time I used them.

Now for the bad.  The hairspray doesn't work as well as my Fructis favourite, and the mousse doesn't spray out evenly.  Being a spray mousse, I'd anticipated that it would mist out finely.  While it may have done that first time round, it now squirts out all over the show and just makes a mess.  And perhaps I was overloading my hair (note the 'was', I've given up using it for the time being!) but I started to end up a little crunchy looking.

My advice is to consider trying the hairspray if you don't have hair which refuses to hold a curl, but give the mousse a miss.  It's a good concept which hasn't quite worked unfortunately.  I'm looking forward to seeing if any brands can perfect it though!

  1. It's a shame these didnt work for you. I want to get some new styling products. I've got so many I need to use up first though!

  2. I've never been that impressed with this range! As you say doesn't seem to hold as well as others.

    Hmm maybe...

  3. I have the mousse and I love it, I only use a little at the roots when it's wet and I really like it. Shame you didn't like it :(

  4. Great post and review dear! Would love to find a hairspray that doesn't smell stereotypically..hairspray-ish haha! They sound great!

    Maybe the spray mechanism is broken if you say that at first it sprayed evenly ^^ Hugs! ♥
