RetailBox's milk_shake brings all the boys to the yard

It's time for another Secret Box* from RetailBox and I'm excited to finally show you the contents! Every time that I have bought or received a box, it has been a different haircare brand, and this month is no exception. The latest offering contains three full sized products from the UK haircare brand milk_shake.

milk_shake is a salon professional haircare brand that offers a whole range of products to suit different hair types and needs. The brand is inspired by nature and offers milk and fruit as ingredients in their products. 

milk_shake Integrity Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner (300 ml)

The shampoo is a cleansing and nourishing shampoo for all hair types, and is free from sulphates, parabens, and sodium chloride. It gently cleanses and nourishes the hair with organic Muru Muru butter. Frizz is eliminated, leaving your hair soft and silky.

The conditioner is formulated to deeply nourish all hair types. It contains Muru Muru butter that works with the shampoo to condition and nourish the hair.

Both products smell absolutely amazing: like a vanilla and fruit dessert. The products aren't very rich, yet leave my hair feeling silky smooth and nourished. The shampoo and conditioner retail for R250 each and can be ordered here and here.

milk_shake Incredible Milk (150 ml)

This leave-in spray treatment boasts 12 actions, including repairing the hair, frizz control, prevention of split ends, heat protection, long lasting hairstyle, detangling, shine, added body and volume, easier ironing, protecting and maintaining colour, protection from UV rays, and smoothing of the hair cuticles.

The smell...oh my goodness the smell! The first time I used this I ended up with crunchy hair the next day, because I completely over-sprayed my hair. Incredible Milk smells exactly like vanilla and creme caramel, and I was close to eating it. You are supposed to spray this onto clean, damp hair, comb through, and (heat)style as normal.

This retails for R244 and can be bought here.

Should you buy it?

The price of the Secret Box #14 is R299, while the value is R744. Very good value for money! Stock is selling quickly, so head over to Retail Box and order one now!

Until next time!
