Yes (‘…yes, yes!’ as the infamous ad campaign had it) Herbal Essences is celebrating its fortieth birthday this year and to mark the event they’ve launched a special, Limited Edition Herbally Ever After range made with Royal Jasmine and Silky Sea Palm extracts. But that’s not all. To spread the birthday joy they’re also running a fabulous competition with three hair-tastic prizes:
- 1st – Cut & Blow Dry with Ben Cooke, Herbal’s celeb stylist, at Lockonego Salon (worth c. £200) in Central London
- 2nd – a year’s supply of Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner
- 3rd – a Herbal Essences Hamper
And there’s more. As befits a significant anniversary they’re doing what time-served rockers do and re-releasing highlights from their 90s back catalogue like the Smooth and Shine Classic Collections. But there’s new material too such as the aforementioned Herbally Ever After range shampoo and conditioner, which we’ve been sent to try:
Personally, I’m eternally grateful to one product in particular: Herbal Essences 2-in-1 because (and I quote, from teenage daughter) ‘it saves time in the shower.’ She goes on to add that she likes it because it makes her hair nice and shiny too. But it’s the first part of this endorsement I’d like to draw to your attention.
Because if Herbal Essences 2-in-1 actually makes her tenure in the bathroom shorter I’d hate to think where we’d be, as a family, without it.
So, thank you Herbal. And here’s to another forty years of being in with a fighting chance of getting a few seconds in the bathroom.
