Since moving over to the US, I’ve become ever so slightly obsessed with travel sized beauty items. Seriously. Obsessed. I don’t know if it’s because, in my mind, I’m constantly preparing to head back to the UK, or if it’s because I just can’t get enough of Sephora’s ruddy check-out aisle; all of those enticing products are just. too. tempting.
Either way, when I spied this Dry Bar Up, Up and Away Travel Set, I just couldn’t resist. Because, while I don’t actually have any trips planned for the near future (unless you count, er, June), I’ve come to look at these sorts of sets almost as trial packs, which allow you to get a good idea of what a brand has to offer, without having to invest in a full size product.
In other words, this travel pouch is actually like a little introduction to the Dry Bar brand – and boy is if a good ‘un.
The pack contains the Dry Bar Sake Bomb Shampoo and Conditioner, the Detox Dry Shampoo and the most adorable little hairbrush I have ever seen. I mean, look at it!
Now I’m pretty fussy when it comes to haircare, but I have to admit I was seriously impressed with the Sake Bomb products. After using them, my hair felt nourished, silky soft and I had noticeably fewer frizzy bits – which is always a huge positive in my eyes.
The dry shampoo wasn’t quite as impressive as far as I’m concerned, I felt like it did a lot more to add oomph than it did to prolong cleanliness between washes; I’m more likely to use it as a volumising spray than a dry shampoo I think. That said, I think if you’re very particular about using invisible dry shampoo sprays, this one could be perfect for you, as it leaves absolutely no residue whatsoever.
All in all, I’d have to say my first Dry Bar experience has been an incredibly positive one. My only issue now? Trying to avoid the temptation of buying those full size products…
