Celebrity endorsed products aren’t usually my thing. I don’t like their cheap gimmicky packaging and the cheesy advertisements that go along with it. However, when I saw Tamara Ecclestone’s range of luxury haircare products, Show Beauty, I had to admit I was rather impressed.
At first glance, the packaging is gorgeous. With a colour scheme of black, silver, golds and a dash of crystallised glass here and there, these products look and feel expensive. The downside? The price-tag reflects that too. I’ve had a quick browse on their website and I don’t think you can buy anything from the range for less than £30. Ouch! So, are they worth it?
The Lux Volume Mist is my favourite product of the two I own. I know I keep raving about the appearance of the bottle but look at it - it’s just so pretty! Although the heavy lid does keep falling off which is a bit annoying. I spray this into the roots of my hair when it’s wet before going to town on it with hairdryer. When I flip my hair back there is a LOT of visible volume. I like how it’s very much ‘spray and go’ without too much work required. As a girl who can’t properly blowdry her hair (I don’t use a fancy round brush or a hairdryer nozzle) this is mega important to me.
I also own the Premiere Finishing Spray which is essentially just a hairspray. I’m not really a hairspray kinda girl as I’m lucky and my hair holds volume quite easily. I know it’s strange but I never really notice when a hairspray is good, I just notice when it’s really bad and makes your hair feel all sticky. I think I need to pay more attention to my spraying habits. My boyfriend however can vouch for the quality of it as he is a bit of a hairspray fiend and uses it religiously to keep his coiffed hair in place. He says it smells sweet and holds well but me, being the evil witch that I am, won’t let him use it often because it’s expensive and I want it all to myself. Selfish I know!
Overall, I do think both of these products are very good but you could get something else for half of the eye-watering price tag. For example, I can achieve the same amount of volume with the L’oreal Elnette Volume Spray if I work with my hair a little more. And as I’m not 100% passionate about hairspray, I don’t think I could bring myself to pay this much for a tin of the stuff. Both are beautiful products if you can afford them but I can’t justify paying the price when I know I can get the same results for a lot less. I will of course be saving the empties to bring a little bit of class to my dressing table as Show Beauty does get the award for prettiest packaging ever.
