Review: Josh Wood Radiant Shine Hair Treatment Oil

josh-wood-hair-oil-2.jpg

I don’t often review hair products, I tend to stick with ones I know and as my hair takes pretty much anything I throw at it it’s rare for a product to make a huge difference to it. However the Josh Wood Radiant Shine Hair Treatment Oil, which has been sat in my cupboard for ages after I first tried it and meant to go back to it but forgot about it, seems to have helped with certain hair problems I have now I’ve given it a proper try.

This bottle is from the Marks and Spencer’s Advent Calendar in 2016, that shows how long it’s been sat in the cupboard, and is a 30ml bottle which isn’t full sized. The full sized version is 48 ml and used to cost £12.50 in Marks and Spencer’s. I’ll leave that link in even though it says it’s out of stock in case it appears back again. Otherwise you can find it on amazon and eBay. I don’t normally post reviews of products that are discontinued but it’s still fairly easy to find and I can’t find anywhere that says it’s actually been completely discontinued, though I’m assuming it is as it says ‘no longer available’. It’s a pity but I wanted to share the review anyway as it’s helped my hair and it might be worth trying if you have similar problems.

Advent 2016: Day 5!


Day five and I may have spent half an hour attaching string to baubles today. Why don’t they sell them with the string already on them? I know some do but I have a pack of 100 that don’t and this takes way too long and does not help with the Christmas spirit feeling. I am loving how many people I’m subscribed to on YouTube are doing vlogmas, or something similar, this year. That along with the Yogscast Jingle Jam is adding even more advent style goodness with daily videos. Do you guys watch vlogmasses? Is that even a word? Any recommendations on ones to watch?

Onto the advent calendars and I’m very happy with today’s, partly because I do love trying new hair products as mine takes pretty much anything you throw at it so they never go to waste, and because it’s finally the day for the Gelology top coat! The Marks and Spencer advent calendar had a bottle of Josh Wood Radiant Shine Hair Treatment Oil, something I am looking forward to trying and I’ll definitely do a full review of this in the future. The Ciate Mini Mani Month has a mini bottle of the Gelology Top Coat and the Yankee Candle tea light for today was Bundle Up. I’m really loving having these to burn each day, they’re big enough that they last for an afternoon or evening and they melt all the wax at the same time so they’re a bit like a wax tart and the scent seems to throw better than with other scented tea lights I’ve had. I also just realised that my iPad has been autocorrecting Gelology to geology every time without me noticing. Oops!

Advent 2015: Day 11

Processed with Moldiv

One thing I like about the M&S advent calendar is the range of types of products that they’re giving us and so far all of them are products I will use. Today’s product is a small bottle of shampoo, it’s a 50ml bottle of Josh Wood Full Bodied Shampoo which will probably only do two or maybe three shampoos with my hair as I have thick hair so don’t really need body but I’ll use it anyway. The Yankee Candle advent has a Christmas Garland tea light today.
