wilkinson health & beauty event

Recently I popped along to the Wilkinson Health & Beauty event for a sneak peak at some of their new beauty products. Personally I've never been on a budget as such when it comes to beauty products so have always favoured well known brands over supermarket own brand products so being talked through products that retail for such a low price was something new for me. However I'm by no means a snob when it comes to beauty products and am more than happy to keep open minded when trying out different brands. I was told at the event how the products are put through rigorous testing to ensure that they match up to well known brands, to the point that I was ensured that if I was blind tested between the Wilkinson dry shampoo that costs just 97p compared to the best selling dry shampoo on the market by Batiste that costs double the price I wouldn't be able to tell a difference, I will be doing a comparison review soon to find out. Overall I was very impressed with the range as even given the low prices the packaging certainly isn't cheap looking and doesn't scream budget beauty whatsoever. I will keep you all updated with reviews on the range very soon..

  6. I've used wilko's Skin Therapy body moisturiser and it wasn't bad at all, lasted ages but had a strange Mr Sheen polish smell to it. Their dry shampoo really is unbeatable though, it smells a little like coconut and chocolate but it isn't at all a strong smell; I thought it worked much better than Batiste in terms of look, I'll never be using anything different because the price is much cheaper and results are better. However their coca body moisturiser that they sold a couple of years ago should be avoided - smelt like plastic. They also used to do a face wash that was really drying and horrible.
