Review: Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine Mask

Green tub of hair mask

Weirdly, for someone with hair as long as mine, I hardly ever use hair masks. In fact, I’ve only ever owned one before, and I’m not even sure that it counts – it was an Aussie treatment. So I decided to give this one a try, as it was stupidly cheap in Boots. Hooray!

I already know and love the green Herbal Essences range; I like the smell, and I like the products, though of course they are fairly middle-of-the-road. I was pleased with how much product there is in this tub – 200ml, and as they were half price, I got 400ml for the price of one. After my experience with the comparable Aussie product, I was expecting to use this stuff up extremely quickly; however, even with my waist-length hair, and after a few uses, I have most of the first tub still to get through. Good value!

Now, how well does it actually work? My hair definitely felt healthier, moisturised (but not oily) and shinier after using this mask, which of course is great! However, I wouldn’t say that the effect was any more pronounced than if I’d used the conditioner from this range in the same way as the mask – just using a big dollop and leaving it on for longer than usual. In fact, I suspected more than once that this stuff is basically the same as the Dazzling Shine conditioner, repackaged. *GASP* – a conspiracy!
I’m sure it isn’t the same stuff, but I think that’ll give you an idea of how effective it is. It does work, and it’s nice to use, but it’s not going to work any miracles that your conditioner can’t also achieve.

3 stars! 🙂
