I get quite excited when beauty bloggers/vloggers branch out to launch their own line of beauty products and brand, because they really understand what regular gals like you and I look for when shopping for beauty products. The market is so flooded with blushes, eyeshadows, brushes, and eyeliners, so it was a refreshing change to see Ruth Crilly of A Model Recommends coming out with something a little more unique: dry shampoo.
Ruth Crilly is an international fashion abd beauty model as well as an active vlogger/blogger. Her YouTube channel, A Model Recommends is one of my favourites as I find her to be straight-forward, and cuts through a lot of fluff, making her videos a pleasure to watch.
I’ve never been a regular user of dry shampoo, so I can’t comment very much on the chalky residue that regular dry shampoos leave behind. My only experience with dry shampoo was with the Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo was such a disaster that I was ready to swear off any dry shampoo products. The defective pump started acting up and I had to throw away something I had only used once or twice. Despite that experience, I can understand why a lot of hectic gals keep one or two of these in their purse – I have been known to use baby powder in my hair in a desperate bid to keep the oil at bay.
The COLAB Dry Shampoo range features a “transparent” formulation that still has all the power of a regular dry shampoo. The fine mist absorbs oil, and refreshes the roots resulting in more volume and bounce in an otherwise dull hair. There are currently two fragrances currently available inn Canada:
- London is a classic yet contemporary fragrance of bergamot, musk and magnolia
- Rio: is a carnival of tropical notes with papaya, pineapple and a heart of cassis
There are three mores scents available (currently not available in Canada) including Paris, Tokyo and New York (I’d love to smell Paris!) The dry shampoos are available in two sizes, the purse-friendly 50mL retails for $5.49, and the 200mL retails for $9.99. The range can be purchased from London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Lawtons and Pharmasave.
Now it’s your turn! Do you use dry shampoo? What do you think of Ruth’s new range of dry shampoo – would you try it? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Share with me comment section or through Twitter or Instagram!
