Review: Herbal Essences Rose Dry Shampoo

As I said in one of my previous posts here is my review of the new Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo. I have only used the rose scented one so far and to be quite honest I'm not really excited about it. 
I was at first when I found out Herbal Essences had brought out their own range of dry shampoos....that's why I bought all 3 fragrances. I had really high hopes for this one but to be honest I hate the scent of it. Out of all 3 the citrus one definitely smells the best so maybe I should've used that one first. The one thing that is good about it is it doesn't leave a white powder on your hair like the Batiste ones do however I feel this one makes your hair feel greasy so then I get paranoid my hair looks greasy.
This retails normally at £2.99 for 180ml which I think is ok I suppose however I purchased them all for £1.99 as they were on special offer at the time.
Also!...after only using it a few times the cap broke so I couldn't get the product to spray. Maybe it was just a faulty one but I wasn't very impressed!
I'm gonna give the other two a chance but wont be using this one again unless I'm in desperate need of it and run out of the others.

  • Doesn't leave white powder on your hair.
  • Packaging looks great.
  • Made my hair feel greasy.
  • Scent isn't my cup of tea.
  • Cap broke after only using it a few times.
  • Bit on the pricey side for a dry shampoo.

  2. The idea of this smelling like roses is making we want to gag a little bit. I quite like the white powder thing, I know I've used enough; my method is completely graying up my hair and then working it through. I might give the citrus one a try, just to compare.

  3. The Batiste dry shampoo is probably known as the 'king' of all dry shampoo's - but the white residue is horrible! It's nice that this doesn't have that yet the coloured range from Batiste is pretty good - guess I'm sticking to Batiste then!
    Great Review <3

  4. I can't stand rose scent so this is definitely a skip for me, thanks for the review!

  5. I find that the superdrug own brand ones are quite good. I get the white powder problem with batiste as well.

  6. I haven't really been tempted to try another dry shampoo to be honest, I really like my batiste -I think I'll definitely be giving this one a miss, it's a shame, it sounds like it was going to be great given the great scents of their shampoos.


  7. Ooh I very nearly bought this just today funnily enough, glad I didn't now! A dry shampoo that makes your hair feel greasy totally defeats the object of using a dry shampoo! Great review lovely, sometimes the negative reviews are even more helpful than positive!
