AA Skincare Botanical Boost Shampoo Bar Review

AA Skincare have released some new hair products - shampoo bars. I love shampoo bars but I'll admit they don't always love me. I've bought a few from LUSH over the past year or so and some I've loved and some not so much but when they do work for me I find that they are great and make my hair feel and look a lot better and healthier. I was kindly allowed to choose which shampoo bar I would like to try from the new range and which would be suitable for my hair and I chose the Botanical Boost Shampoo Bar* containing Frankincense, Rose & Argan Oil. It arrived within a few days and I was also notified on the morning of its arrival about it's estimated arrival time which I found to be really handy too.

It claims to stimulate hair growth and calm skin. Works with anti-oxidant-packed argan oil and aromatic Rose oil to breathe new life into dull, flat hair by helping improve texture and give ageing, damaged and colour treated hair a moisture boost. Rose Geranium Oil acts as a natural hair strengthener.

So basically this Shampoo Bar has everything I'm looking for in a shampoo/conditioner. My hair is kind of dull and flat (but frizzy) and it's also colour treated and damaged too. To use it all you have to do is wet your hair with warm water, rub your shampoo bar in-between your hands to create a lather and then massage into your hair gently. Leave a couple of minutes then rinse thoroughly and condition.

 The bar itself is a perfect size to fit in the palm of your hand and it lathers up really well, literally within seconds and you've got plenty of product for a good shampoo. The scent smells lovely and I'm a huge fan of floral scents but this has the added Frankincense just to make it smell a little different compared to other shampoo bars on the market right now. My hair looks lovely after I use this Shampoo Bar and it also has more volume and just looks like it has a little more life to it.

I would definitely recommend giving these shampoo bars a try. This is definitely one of my favourite hair products right now. 

They are really affordable at £5.94, travel-friendly, cruelty-free, parabens free and each 50g bar gives you twice as many washes as a 250ml bottle of liquid shampoo. You can have a look at this shampoo bar and the others available here
