I knew that this box was going to be a winner and it certainly didn’t disappoint.   I received 2 full sized items and got to try several new brands that  I had not used before.   What was in the box?       Watch the video review:       Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush – R34.99 Blitz oily roots and give your locks a volumising boost with this awesome invention. Shake vigorously and spray Batisteinto your roots, keeping the nozzle 30cm from hair.

However, when I wore this fragrance I just kept getting a soapy smell and I was pretty disappointed.
