I had actually forgotten to review these until I was involved in a twitter conversation the other night where myself and a few other bloggers were all in agreement as to how great this range is. I've been using the Ultimate Blends Sleek Restorer Conditioner and the 1 minute Nourishing Repairer for a couple of months now. I haven't used any of the shampoos but I love their dry shampoo which I reviewed HERE.
But back to these two, the conditioner contains coconut oil and cocoa butter and is for dry, frizzy hair to "weightlessly nourish while taming frizz and flyways " leaving hair "smooth and shiny". First off, this smells gorgeous, I love all things coconut-ty, especially for hair. It's a good formula; not so light that it slips off your hair but not so thick that it weighs it down either. I use this every second/third day and I've been liking it, it's a decent conditioner and considering I got 400mls for €2.75 (it was on sale, it's normally around €5.49), it's good value for what it is.
The real star of the show though for me is the 1 minute treatment, nourishing repairer. This one has avocado oil and Shea butter and is designed for dry, damaged hair, which is definitely well suited to my hair. As the name would suggest, this only needs a minute so it's perfect for when you're just having a quick shower and don't have time for a lengthy treatment. This is a much thicker formula and really does feel like a proper treat for your hair- it's more like a mask. I've been using this a couple of times a week and it makes an obvious difference to my hair, leaving it shinier and smoother. This was also half price at €4.68 for 200mls (it's normally around €6.99), so another bargain. It smells fantastic too.
While the former is a good bog-standard conditioner and will do the job just fine, the 1 minute treatment is as good as any higher end brand I've tried and is the one I'd recommend you go out and pick up- especially if you can get it at the reduced price (I got mine on offer in the ever great Meagher's pharmacy on Baggot st but you should also keep an eye out in other pharmacies/Boots etc for potential bargains).
Have you tried any of the Ultimate Blends range?
