The Organic Pharmacy offers an extensive range of health care,body/skin/hair care, perfumes/candles as well as makeup. I associate the brand more with supplements and skincare so was interested to see how other items performed.
The Rose Conditioning Shampoo (£22.96) is aimed at those with dry hair. The shampoo is infused with Rose Hips, Aloe and the herbal complex of Arnica, Horsetail, Coltsfoot, Sage & Chamomile. The formula is extremely watery, when I first used it I lost a lot, as it just floods out, because of this I think you end up using more product as its hard to keep it in your hand without it just seeping off. It has a low foam and is quite difficult to work through the hair and it made my hair feel slightly tangled during application.
My hair was left feeling hydrated and soft, unfortunately it also looked somewhat coated and the overly shiny look was veering towards looking greasy, there's nothing like washing your hair and having it look the same as it did before you started. My hair is dry through the lengths but prone to getting greasy at the roots so perhaps when they say for dry hair they means from root to tip!
The Organic Glam Eye Shadow palettes come in 3 different shades, I went for Plum (£32.95). The palette is really compact and contains a mirror.
Here it is against a MAC 4 pan for size compare.
All the shades are cool toned. There is one matte shadow in a pale pink/lilac, and the other three shades have a slight shimmer and a tiny bit of sparkle; a white, a dusty mauve and a plum.
Whilst there is nothing intrinsically wrong with these shadows I feel the pigment was average, the darker shades were too flyaway and they just weren't as smooth or easy to blend as my favourite brands. I think for this price range it brings with it a higher expectation.
I'll go with saying I was left underwhelmed with both these items.
I bought these from theorganicpharmacy.com/
