Now from the get go - if I bought a litre of a beauty product - chances I like it - like really like it. But I thought it was worth penning just why I would make such a commitment to a product with both amount of money and length of time it's on my bathroom caddy. We're talking the well famed, well coveted Elasticizer.
Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer is a pre-shampoo hair treatment which needs no introduction. Formulated on the command of Audrey Hepburn herself, this mask has an esteemed history. I first encountered this beauty due to a sample in a BirchBox and ever since it was playing on my mind that I need to get the full size. I like to stick this in my hair about half an hour before a shower or I use it whilst I have a bath. I tend to put my hair into a high pony, work it through the length and then clip it to my head in a sort of bun so I can get on with whatever I'm doing and the mask can work its magic. I use this typically 1-2 times a week and the results I get are fantastic - I feel this mask is one that really gets to work after continued use and the amount of people I have had comment on the healthiness of my hair is almost ridiculous - and sure I use a nice hair oil and a good heat protectant but I think the bulk of the work is down to this and would highly recommend this to a wide spectrum of hair lengths and types. I'm not going to beat around the bush, this mask isn't cheap, particularly the 'personal use' sizes so to get the real benefits out of it you'll either need to be shelling out lots of money fairly often, or you can get creative. I have rather long, fairly thick hair, so I certainly would be using a larger quantity of mask than most people. I bought myself the 75ml size for a hefty £15 just to make sure my love for this product was true, and rest assured it was - so I turned to Escentual.com during a 25% off entire site event and I snapped up the litre size with a nice bit of discount and used my points I'd gained with the site. Sure - I ended up spends £45 on a hair mask - I know, I know. But if I had repurchased the same 75ml bottle twice - I'd have been out of 775ml - which I'm glad I'm not. Basically what I'm trying to say is pop this on your Christmas list - see if you like it (which I think most will) and then lay in waiting to pounce on sites like Escentual or QVC to get that bulk size and be happy as larry with your seemingly endless tub of good hair.
Have I converted you to my crazy couponer ways?
Have you ever been stuck behind me at a boots counter piling up the discounts?
