I am a long term fan and supporter of the Redken brand.

I bought the new Nature + Science All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner set.

At first I thought it was great, however, I noticed that I'd not washed out the product so it left my hair feeling gummy. The next two times I washed my hair, it became increasingly gummy and sticky, particularly around the scalp, I couldn't …

For blondes, this is perfect, I love two - three coats. Very flattering on all skin tones. Neutral enough to be very classy and elegant, it's not too pink or too white. Just great.

No no no!

I am not a fan of sprays to start with, they use a huge amount of product and the spray travels very far, generally all over your bathroom. But this was all that was left in Boots and I was going away on holiday. I didn't want to get it because it was the Express range, and I've used this before and it would crack after a few days, however, I thought I'd give it …

I bought this in the lightest shade after seeing an online blogger recommend it.

Pros: Cute tube, lovely sponge tip, sweet smell and taste, softens lips.

Cons: Lipglossy texture (can be heavy), applying more than one layer makes the product colour look almost white which is rather unflattering, and the tube gets easily crushed and squeezed in a bag or pockets which means the …

I bought this range (shampoo, conditioner and leave in), because my beloved Redken Blonde Idol has been discontinued.

I love the packaging of the shampoo, and the smell, very delicate, and the product range does definitely calm down yellow or brassy tones (my new hairdresser tried something different and added yellow toned highlights rather than the usual cool tones I prefer), but it …

Powdery at first but very overwhelming and strong after it settles, ever present. Unfortunately doesn't suit my skin.

I have used this for 3 months, every night, before other products, and often with no other products, on my forehead, so that I could effectively test this against a control, the rest of my face which is without the product. On the plus side, my pores are smaller, my complexion appears more airbrushed and softened, and the skin seems softer and smoother. On the negative, I have developed tiny …Read more

I have tried a huge range of hair smoothing products. I would say this is up there. It softens and smooths hair, while keeping it light with movement. I use on wet hair and then blow dry - my hair looks at least 40% smoother and tidier than without the product and without a blow dry. Will continue to buy.

I have had this for about a year and use as needed on spots or lumps. I think it is strong because it does sometimes show up slightly red in areas I have applied it, the next morning (if used overnight), and it does reduce some spots and breakouts by I'd say around 30%, but doesn't kill a spot or a lumpy area or breakout. I think there may be better products out there for that …Read more
