Finesse Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Finesse Shampoo & Conditioner Review


Do you remember the first shampoo and conditioner that you picked out on your own? I do. I was browsing through the isle at Walgreen’s and I was finally old enough to choose what I wanted to use. Before this my mom was buying and having me use Suave. I recognized the bottles of Finesse from a magazine geared towards teenagers that I recently browsed through, I was 10. I immediately grabbed them and put them in my mom’s cart. It seems silly now, but at that time it was exciting to be able to choose what products I was going to use on my hair and body. I kept thinking I was finally an adult! Now, I just want to be that age again.

As part of the Brand Backer program I had the opportunity to travel back in time, no not literally, and test out an old favorite. I used Finesse until I was probably 16, which is when I started dying my hair, and switched to products meant for color treated hair. I haven’t colored my hair in probably three years.

I was sent the Finesse Restore + Strength Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner ($3.99). The smell is nice, nothing crazy or strong enough to trigger my allergies and migraines, and it does it’s job to clean my hair. Do I have other products that work better? Yes, of course. But I’m also paying a lot more for them. Considering how affordable, currently on sale for $1.99, I can’t complain. They do what I want my shampoo and conditioner to do. These are up there as a favorite drugstore haircare right below Pantene.

If you’re on a budget and you need something that’s going to really work well, make your hair look nice and clean, head to your local Walgreens or Walmart and check out Finesse! Higher end isn’t always the better option.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I seriously love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own website and would like to find out where you got this from or exactly what the theme is named. Thank you!

      HI! I didn’t. I purchased it from an Etsy shop and changed things a little bit.
