Vichy Dercos Oil Control Treatment Shampoo

Vichy Dercos Oil Control Treatment Shampoo

Hello Lovelies,

I was recently browsing the Look Fantastic website as I often do, looking at shampoo's for oily hair again as I often do and I came across a shampoo I'd never heard of before, the Vichy Dercos Oil Control shampoo, I love Vichy as a brand and adore their skin care products so I was intrigued by the shampoo I noticed it was on sale for £5.30 down from £8.50, I also had a 15% off discount code so I thought I'd try it out. I've been on the look out for a good cleansing/clarifying shampoo since my favourite Ojon detoxifying shampoo was discontinued and I have recently been purchasing the Boots expert build up removal shampoo, I have a full review of that here but I am still on the look out for something I like as much as the Ojon so I thought I'd try the Vichy out. 

What It Says On The Box

Greasy hair is caused by over active sebum production, which irritates and destabilises the scalp, hair quickly becomes limp, dull and lifeless. An exclusive anti sebum complex combines 4 carefully balanced and selected surfactants to help limit the spread of sebum along the capillary fibres and preserve the scalps natural balance. The results are that the scalp is cleansed, the hair becomes greasy less quickly, hair feels lighter and becomes easier to style. For 80% of users the shampoo helps give more volume and body.

My Thoughts

My first thoughts when I used the shampoo were that it had a nice scent, often detoxifying shampoos can smell rather unpleasant but the Dercos has a nice fresh scent to it, I didn't need a lot of product and it lathered up well and rinsed out easily too. The shampoo is a clear liquid and what I would say is an average shampoo consistency it isn't too thick or too thin either. I washed my hair once with the shampoo and it was dried and styled as normal.

I am so impressed with the shampoo, I washed my hair for the first time with it on a Monday and wore it down after it had been dried and straightened, the day after my hair looked fine and I was able to wear my hair down again after having it quickly straightened, I didn't need to use any dry shampoo at all in my hair, on Wednesday I wore my hair up and used dry shampoo around my hair line and at my crown as it was a little oily but not terribly, I wouldn't have been able to wear my hair down but it was fine to wear in a messy bun with some dry shampoo through it, I then washed my hair on the Thursday. As I said I have been purchasing the boots expert shampoo and using that I can go every other day without washing my hair so I was able to go an extra day without washing with the Vichy which was exactly the same as when I used the Ojon shampoo so my first thoughts were extremely good. 

Overall Thoughts & Would I Re Purchase?

I am super impressed with the Vichy Dercos Oil Control shampoo, I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I love it, I love the scent of it and it lathers up well, rinses well and it doesn't contain any parabens or silicone which is great and I think the price of the shampoo is good  considering it doesn't contain silicone as usually shampoos that don't are more expensive. It is a shame it is more than double the price of the boots shampoo I have been using but it is a better product and it does exactly what it says on the tin, it didn't affect the colour of my hair either which I was super happy about, some clarifying/detoxifying shampoos can strip the colour if you have coloured hair but the Dercos didn't do that so I was pleased about that. 

I would recommend the dercos shampoo to those of you who suffer with oily hair, it is a fantastic product and does exactly what it says it will, my hair didn't need washing for 2 days and it felt soft and weightless, I am super impressed with the shampoo and will definitely re purchase it, if you can find a discount code for the Look Fanstatic website even better but I wouldn't have any qualms about paying full price for the shampoo as although it is more expensive that the boots shampoo it is a lot more affordable than the Ojon and other brands and it is a fantastic product, to be honest I would have expected it to be more expensive than it is and if I ordered from boots with delivery it would work out to a similar price anyway. I am really pleased I found the shampoo, I thought it would be good as I love Vichy skin care but because I haven't ever heard anything about their shampoos I was a little unsure but I had no need to be as it is fantastic and I have yet to find  product I dislike from the brand, another 10 out of 10 to Vichy.   

If you would like to try the Vichy Dercos Oil Control shampoo you can find it here for £8.50 including free delivery. 

Do you suffer with oily hair? Did you know Vichy had a range of shampoos? Let me know in the comments, it's so lovely to chat to you all.

Ted Baker Mint Body Spray

Ted Baker Mint Body Spray

Hello Lovelies,

I've never been one for body sprays, I've always preferred perfume, I love wearing perfume I love that a certain scent can transport me back to a certain time or life event and I've just never been one for buying body sprays, the scents never lasts longer than around 10 minutes on me and I always regret buying them but on a recent trip to a local retail park I found myself in Boots, quell surprise? And whilst picking up some much needed items for our holidays I stumbled upon the Ted Baker Mint mini body sprays, I'd had had a little "sniff" off the full size body spray with Lissy a few weeks before but I wasn't sure how long the scent would last etc etc and £7.99 seemed a lot to pay if the product turned out to be something I regretted buying so I left it.

When I saw the mini version for £2.50 and on 3 for 2 at the time I decided I'd pick one up or 3 since they were on 3 for 2, unfortunately they only had 2 left so I picked up a Ted Baker body lotion as my 3rd item, I gave 1 of the body sprays to Lissy since she loved the scent when we tried it a few weeks before and kept the other for myself and decided I would try it out and if I liked it I would buy the full price version.

Ted Baker Mint Body Spray

As I said I've never been a huge fan of body sprays and they're not something I buy but something about the scent of this just pulled me in, it smells absolutely beautiful, it's soft and floral and feminine but sweet and a little fruity at the same time it is just lovely and when I saw the mini I just had to buy it and I am so glad I did, I have used nothing else since buying it, I have had so many people ask me what perfume I'm wearing and then being shocked when I say it's a body spray, it really is a beautiful scent and perfect for the summer (if we ever get one)

The scent lasts for around 2 hours which for a body spray I think is really good, usually body sprays last around 20 minutes on me which is why I never buy them but this one is quite long lasting and it smells amazing, I am going to pick up the full size of this as I think it will be lovely to wear on holiday in the evening, there are other products in the mint range too including a body wash, bubble bath, body lotion and body soufflé,  I have my eye on the body wash, layering the fragrance will help it to last even longer and I bet the body soufflé is also amazing.

If the mint fragrance isn't for you there is an alternative, the Ted Baker Pink which is also lovely, I do prefer the mint but they are both gorgeous and I highly recommend you check them out. If you would like to purchase the mini Mint body spray you can find it here for £2.50 and all the other Ted Baker mint products are available at Boots as is the pink range if the mint isn't for you.

Do you wear body sprays? Are there any you could recommend to me? Have you tried the Ted Baker mint and did you like it too?

Thank you for reading, much love as always,
