Review: Spa Magick Mineral Shampoo & Hair Serum

Spa - who doesn't love a good spa? I certainly do. There is nothing I enjoy more than going back to basics with mud treatments and massages amongst other treatments. Not so long ago, I was sent a little package of spa treatments to try out at home. It contained a number of products, but the ones I am reviewing in this post are the Spa Magick Mineral Shampoo and Hair Serum.

What the product claims to do:


"Hair Magic Intensive Treatment ideal for dehydrated hair, and is suitable for all hair and scalp types. It will protect hair's radiant vitality by saturating each strand with thirst-quenching Dead Sea minerals and organic plant extracts!"


What I thought:


Shampoo: 


To start off with, the sachet of shampoo contained a generous amount of product. If I had known this, I probably would've split the treatment. However, that aside, the shampoo lathered up really nicely once I'd applied it. I didn't notice much of a difference with the shampoo - it just felt like shampoo. What I did notice was the smell. I didn't like the smell and was totally put off by it.

Hair Serum: 


This sample was another generous sachet. Like the shampoo it had the same smell which again was off-putting. With this treatment, I applied it, left it for 5 mins under a shower cap (to let it work its magic) and then washed it off. Once rinsed off, my hair was so smooth that the borrowers could've used it as a slide. Impressed is not a strong enough word.

Overall:

I liked these products as I felt that they suited my hair type which tends to be fairly dry. Looking at the products separately, I would need more time to work with the shampoo whereas the serum does the job on its own. With these products combined, it is a perfectly good treatment and would be perfect to use maybe twice a month or after certain situations like beach holidays where your hair tends to be frazzled. The only negative aspects is the smell and the fact I had issues opening the sachets. I think if you can get over the smell, you are onto a winner.

Spa Magick products are available at Holland & Barrett, John Lewis, Debenhams amongst other retailers.


The shampoo retails at £8.25 for 330ml (John Lewis) and the Hair Serum £17.19 for 150ml (Holland & Barrett).
