Retailbox Secret Box #18 – Pureology Curl Complete Review

If you follow me on Social Media, you would have seen my clues, giveaway and eventual unveiling of the contents of the Retailbox Secret Box no. 18. Not sure what the RBSecretBox is?

Retail Box Secret Box #RBsecretbox

#RBsecretbox is an exciting opportunity for new and existing Retailbox customers to treat themselves to
premium products they have possibly not tried before. Each #RBsecretbox is priced according to the
products inside so prices will vary as every box is different and from different suppliers. This is an
exclusive offer with limited stock and a massive discount making it a much sort after offer and a bonus
of no subscriptions to tie you down.

The only clue that was given on Retailbox about box #18… ‘Enhance your curly side with this vegan Sulphate free range’.

So what was inside the box?

Retail Box Secret Box 18 Pureology Curl Complete Review Pretty Please Charlie
Pureology Curl Complete Shampoo and Conditioner (plus a gorgeous fluffy turbin)

This was my first time trying this brand and I have been very curious (to say the least) as all the reviews I have read are stellar.

Pureology Curl Complete Shampoo – R278

This shampoo is specifically formulated for curly colour-treated hair, which is perfect for my naturally curly and highlighted (read: DRY!) hair. The shampoo foams well for a sulphate-free product and gently cleanses the hair. The formula is thick and creamy and smells lovely. Curl Complete Shampoo contains an Anti-Fade Complex and Coconut Oils to replenish moisture and erase frizz.

Pureology Curl Complete Conditioner- R316

I was worried that the conditioner would be too light for my hair and that I would have to use half the bottle to detangle this bossiekop, but the conditioner turned out to be my favourite of the two products. I only need a little bit of product to detangle and to leave my hair feeling soft and smooth. Result: Soft, shiny, healthy-looking curls. I REALLY like this conditioner. It is also ideal for fine hair as it does not weigh the hair down at all.

I’ve noticed that my hair actually feels thicker since I started using this range. I have a lot of hair, but it is very fine. The condition of my hair has improved and I am really happy with the results.

Two thumbs up Pureology.

And two thumbs up Retailbox for a great Secret Box! This Secret Box went for only R280 and if you hurry you may still be able to get your hands on one. You can click HERE to see if they still have stock.

I am a big fan of the #RBSecretbox. All of the boxes that I’ve received have been great value for money.

Make sure to follow Retailbox on Instagram for hints about the release of the next one.

The Pink Power invisibobble for Breast Cancer Awareness

I have only recently discovered Invisibobble and now I understand why everyone seems to be so obsessed.

These little ‘telephone-cord-looking’ hair rings are fabulous.  It stays in place, it doesn’t tug or pull, it’s strong, anti-allergic and non-soaking. They say it doesn’t leave a kink in your hair, but because my hair is just kink, I can’t really guarantee that ;) I have also seen gorgeous styles created with this little beauty. You can check some of them out HERE.

Invisibobble has released a limited addition Pink Power bobble in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
