Things will be a little different this week on BTCE as I wanted to dedicate this week’s posts to a number of gift sets that have really wowed me over the festive period, whether they were received as gifts on Christmas morning or picked up in the Boxing Day sales. In my case, post-Christmas was definitely the time to ‘treat yo self’ as I placed far too many orders online, but I couldn’t be happier with what I picked up!
The first in my gift set series comes from Bumble and Bumble, a haircare brand that I’ve kept my distance from as it’s definitely on the pricey side, but one that I’ve always been curious about. I had included the Gift of Great (Big) Hair set in my luxury beauty Christmas gift guide as it looked like a great value set with lots of lovely new products to try, so you can imagine my excitement when I opened it on Christmas morning.
I was really surprised to see the size of these samples as some of them are pretty generous, and this gift set gives you the perfect opportunity to try out a few Bumble and Bumble products without shelling out on full size bottles. As the name suggests, this set focuses on big hair – one of my favourite topics when it comes to haircare. Today’s post is more of an overview of what comes in the set, and I’ll be sure to review the products in due course so keep your eyes peeled for that!
The set includes:
Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer (60ml) – a priming spray that fights frizz, softens, detangles and protects hair from heat and UV damage. Anything that’s going to detangle and soften my knotty hair is very welcome, and the fact that it also protects against heat damage is perfect as I tend to blowdry and curl my hair quite a lot.
All-Style Blow Dry (150ml) – This product is much like the Invisible Oil Primer in the sense that it smooths, detangles and protects hair against heat, but I do love that it comes in the form of a cream rather than a spray bottle. This cream also includes microfine oil-absorbing powders to extend the life of your blow dry.
Does It All Styling Spray (125ml) – Of course the set had to include a hairspray – as how else are you going to hold on to your big hair for as long as you possibly can? This styling spray provides grip for styled hair, as well as some added volume if you’re on the lookout for even bigger hair.
Pret a Powder (14g) – I’m not going to lie, the dinky little pot that this powder comes in may just be the cutest thing I have in my beauty stash (yep, I’m a sucker for minis and travel sizes). This powder claims to be equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volume, and this is a combination I can definitely get on board with!
I’d love to know – what’s your favourite product from Bumble and Bumble?
