One of the many products I was given at the Bloggers Ball, I had never actually heard of this brand prior until then.
What is Vatika*?
The brand itself specialises in hair care products with a range varying from shampoo, conditioner, hair masks and oils, all enriched with natural products. The hair brand originates from India and the word “Vatika” means “garden”. Vatika pride themselves on bringing the goodness of herbs long associated with healthy hair. The extensive hair range they have on offer has a product for any type of hair ranging from strengthening, moisturising, repairing and bringing life back to dull hair.
They also offer a range of skincare products that target dry skin and breakouts. These again combine a selection of renowned natural products that provide replenishment for the skin.
What did they give me?
After having a chat to one of their brand ambassadors, she recommended me some products to try for my skin and hair. I described my hair as quite often being dry, damaged, limp, knotty and exceedingly thick. For my skin, I was given a moisturiser due to my skin being incredibly dry (apart from my face) and always needing replenishing oils to make it feel soft, supple and loved.
What did I think of them?
The shampoo is argan based and doesn’t have any chemical-perfume smell, it just smells like a conditioner really. However, what did amaze me about it was that after washing my hair with only that (after shampooing of course!) and not adding my usual aftercare hair products, it made made my hair feel soft and replenished. Not once did I think, “Oooh this feels a bit dry!” which is what I usually do several times a day with most other shampoo and conditioners. The only qualm I have with it is that the lid is hard to shut so you either have to slam it down or turn it upside down on the side of the bath. Not that this is a bad thing as I just do both of these things with it anyway.
The body lotion is a generous sized bottle with a predominant smell of honey and almond as advertised on the packaging. What I’ve found with this is that a little goes a long way – so think “less is more”! I would say it’s got more of a liquid, runny texture than quite think like some moisturisers’ can be! It sinks in to the skin quite well and doesn’t feel heavy on your skin so is great for a summer moisturiser. I honestly cannot fault this at all and it will very much be a stable part of my summer skincare regime.
If both of these products are anything to go by then I think I may have found my number one hair/skin care products. I am definitely going to be purchasing more in this range!
You can buy products in the Vatika range in Superdrug.
