Boots – Natural Collection Mango & Papaya Hi-Shine Conditioner
This post may contain affiliate links.
I bought this sachet of Natural Collection Mango & Papaya Hi-Shine Conditioner from Boots ages ago and then put it in the bathroom cupboard and forgot about it. I found it last week and thought I would try it out as my hair was in need of a little bit of TLC after being out in the cold weather.
I don’t really think that sachets are a cost-effective way of buying beauty products (this one cost £1 for just 10ml) but they are a good way of trying new products. Plus I really like putting together a little pamper box as a gift, made up of lots of different bodycare and haircare sachets (Sanctuary do a good range) plus a mini bottle of wine.
Mango & Papaya Hi-Shine Conditioner is an intensive conditioner that contains revitalising extracts of mango & papaya to help leave hair shiny, smooth and healthy. You just apply it to hair after shampooing like you would with a regular conditioner then leave it for 5-10 minutes and rinse out. It is a thick creamy textured pearlised white cream and has a beautiful exotic fruity scent, it is really nice to use. One sachet is enough for one application for medium to long hair, if you have quite short hair you might be able to get away with making it last for two applications.
After drying and straightening my hair it did feel nice and smooth and silky, but I’m not really sure it was any more shiny than usual. Overall this is a good conditioner, nothing more, but as it only comes in sachets it’s not a cost-effective way of conditioning your hair and personally I don’t think I will be buying it again. Boots Natural Collection do have other bodycare products in the Mango & Papaya range though, including body cream and shower gel (full size products, not sachets) so I might try one of these as I do love the Summery fruity fragrance of the Hi-Shine Conditioner.
UPDATE 19th August 2017 – Mango & Papaya Hi-Shine Conditioner is no longer available. Instead I’ve discovered Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner which is just as good, and is available in a mini bottle which is perfect for taking on holiday with you. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner is priced at £1.75 for 75ml, available from Superdrug.
