Free hair product- Glamour magazine

I don't usually buy any magazines other than Look or More unless there's a fab freebie. Whilst browsing in Sainsburys yesterday I spotted Glamour magazine offering a free hair product by Percy & Reed. I'd never heard of the brand before but was drawn in by the fact it stated all 4 products are worth £42. You only get one item per magazine but the mag is only £2 so it's well worth buying 4. Their was the choice of a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and finishing polish. I opted for the Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish...

What it does (according to website): Flawless is a big word, but this bottle delivers. This gentle styler containing horse chesnut extract gives you a soft, flexible hold while sunflower wax gentle moisturizes. Knock 'em dead.

How to use: Use a pea sized amount on hair to smooth, control or groom unruly hair. Use a little more to add definition and control.

What I think: I loved the simple packaging of this little tube, the "drawn" style picture of the lady and the different fonts made it seem like an expensive brand. The smell was pleasant, nothing to rave on about but it wasn't offensive either. I used as directed and was pleased with the results, it tamed my fly-aways and smoothed any unruly bits of hair (I always end up with spiky bits at the back of my head, it drives me mad). It has made my hair feel soft, not greasy and I noticed after applying, my hands were pretty soft too (although obviously I had to wash them after).
As a freebie with a magazine this is a great product and it has made me want to get the shampoo, conditioner and hair mask now!
