Does what it says on the tin, really. It's your average dry shampoo, with way below average prices. It's stocked in my local Tesco (UK) at £1 ish, and I find it works just as well, if not better than, my £8 Toni & Guy can. The white residue isn't extreme and blends really easily. I've only tried the purple but I absolutely loved the scent, friends asked if I had a new perfume hours after spraying it, but it is very strong so may be overpowering to some. The spray doesn't dry hair out to the extremes that I've sometimes experienced, and leaves hair easy to style as usual. I've also found it doesn't run out as quickly as Batiste, but I may just be using different amounts. This is a budget product that really does work, I'll definitely be repurchasing every time I run out.

This product for me was a life-changer. After all the rave reviews I was finally swayed to try C+P and I'm so glad I did. I'm not usually one to put in a lot of effort with makeup removal (I know, I know) but with this I've found myself looking forward to taking my makeup off at the end of the day. My t-zone gets fairly oily, but C+P has helped to mattify my skin, as well as evening out skin tone and reducing pores. I also love the muslin cloth, I feel my face constantly needs exfoliated due to nasty working environments etc so massaging with the muslin cloth lets me exfoliate without damaging my skin. C+P is also safe to use in the eye area - I have fairly delicate eyes and usually can't handle product being near them, but with C+P I can smother my whole face and feel absolutely fine. I use this in conjunction with with Liz Earle toner, and together they are my abolsute miracle workers. My one tip for the C+P would be to make sure you splash your face with cold water after polishing, as it helps to remove the last traces of product, helps reduce pores and is really invigorating.
