Phil Smith: Total Treat Argan Oil Cream

In April I took the 3 and half hour train ride up to Birmingham, and believe me when I say I get bored easily. So equipped with my iPod, many magazines and some gooey chocolate chip cookies I headed up North to meet my best friend. And not only do I find a little appearance from Milly in my April Cosmopolitan, but I was also pleased to receive a free sample size version of Phil Smith's coveted Argan Oil Cream!

To start off, I absolutely love the packaging of the sample. The bright pink tube really catches your eye and definitely adds a bit of colour to my white dressing table! It also adds a nice touch of girliness to my room.

Now to the product itself. This oil-in-cream treatment claims to miraculously transform the texture of your hair into lustrous silky locks. It helps to lock in moisture to heal dry, damaged hair and restore smoothness. Sounds great, right? Well, with my hair type I need all the help I can get to restore moisture and repair hair which I've bleached to death around four times a year since I was 15. I found that the product really made a difference to the feel of my hair after just a couple of uses. I simply applied a pea-sized amount to damp hair, working my fingers through the length of my hair to capture the ends, following with my usual blow-dry or natural air-dry depending on how I felt (and how hot it was).

The cream is a lovely texture - not too creamy, if you know what I mean, but not too thick either so it's completely workable - and it also smells great. It's a really feminine scent yet isn't strong enough to be too overpowering. I think it definitely adds to the appeal of the product overall.

The full sized product is unfortunately sold out online, but you can shop for the entire Phil Smith range at Sainsbury's as far as I'm aware.

Did you pick up April's Cosmopolitan? What did you think of the Argan Oil Cream?
