Getting cheeky with Batiste

For me Batiste has to be the holy grail of hair products! It really is my ultimate saviour! I'm extremely low maintenance when it comes to hair, you won't find me slapping this product and that product over it. I'm a simple shampoo and condition girl with the occasional 3mm from Aussie.
However Batiste is one product I couldn't live without. My hair length is way down my back now meaning daily washing is a bit of a pain, so dry shampoo is my saviour! 
As you can imagine using dry shampoo around 3 times a week means its a regular purchase for me so I love that batiste are regularly adding new fragrances to their range. The newest being "Cherry" I was so excited when I heard of it's release and couldn't wait to try it to see how it fared with the others.

Like the others a quick spritz of this rubbed in and brushed through leaves your hair grease-free and shiny. The smell is to die for, a lovely almost creamy cherry-fragrance that isn't sickly, thankfully has no hint of coconut and last all through the day.
The Batiste fragrances never cease to impress me, I've tried all fragrances and love them all bar Tropical as I'm not one for a coconut scent. In addition to the plethora of scents provided, the cans are becoming increasingly eye catching, first the leopard-print design of Wild and now a lovely kitsch cherry design that Batiste say is "inspired by their latest love of vintage-glamour".

I find the design to be very Cath Kidston-esque, and when I was sent this can to try from the lovely people at Batiste I was delighted to find a Cath Kids birdcage brolly emblazoned with Cherries.

Sorry for the picture - weather has been less than pleasant for outdoor photos and I'm too superstitious to open a brolly indoors :p 
With all these lovely fragrances I'm finding it increasingly hard to pick a favourite. I also can't wait to see what Batiste have up their sleeve for the future!

Batiste Cherry is available in 200ml cans for £2.99 from Superdrug, Boots, Tesco, Asda, Wilkinsons, Waitrose, Saver and Lloyds Chemist


Note - This product was sent to me for review but my views are honest and in no way influenced.
