Mini Reviews #1: Bumble and Bumble Mini’s

So I was looking through my ‘to review’ stuff and I realised I had a few mini products from Bumble and Bumble so I thought i’d start a new series called ‘Mini Reviews’ where I review a few different products together to save me rambling on about each product in a massively long blog post. So here goes!

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray – Boots (£21.50), Bumble and Bumble Mini Surf Set – Boots (£18)

Starting with the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray, which i’m sure pretty much every beauty blogger got their hands on when Elle gave this a freebie in last months magazine. Designed to help fine hair to achieve extra volume and to give hair that little lift. I found this kinda hard to get results the first couple of times I used this, as it says to apply to wet hair and then blow dry but I tend not to blow dry my hair anymore. So instead, I applied this to my hair when it was almost dry, focusing on the upper parts of my hair and then gave a quick blast with the blow dryer and then styled as desired. I did notice this gave my hair a little lift, but nothing amazing in my eyes. I also didn’t like the smell of this, it literally smells of alcohol that was so strong it put me right off.

The next two products are the Bumble and Bumble Foam Wash Surf Shampoo and the Bumble and Bumble Creme Rinse Surf Conditioner from the Bumble and Bumble Surf Travel Set, which came along with a mini Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (review here). I’d been wanting to try out the rest of the surf range for such a long time and when I found out they had released a mini travel set I snapped it up as soon as I could get my hands on it. Together both of these products are designed to create a base for beachy wave styles to die for. I’ve been using these for about three weeks now, using once or twice a week as I don’t want to use these up too quickly. They both have a very similar scent to the surf spray which I love and surprisingly doesn’t leave my hair feeling dried out or salty in anyway. As my hair is naturally wavy, i’ve noticed this helps to define the waves a bit better and then applying the surf spray just adds to the whole beach wave style. I’m not sure if i’d buy the full size of these products as they are pretty pricey, but they definitely do what they say on the bottle and I would highly recommend trying out these products if you’re looking to achieve some beautiful beachy waves to your hair.

Have you tried out any of these products?
