Batiste gets a makeover (and goes large)

 Batiste dry shampoo is a product i've been using for years, it helps refresh my hair when its oily or when it just needs a bit more life in it.  
As part of their new makeover, they have redesigned the packaging of their existing cans and increased the sizes of them from 150ml to 200ml, and also added a new size of 400ml! With the increase of sizes, does come the increase of cost, 200ml comes in at £2.99 and 400ml will cost you £4.99 (pretty reasonable for something that will last you a while!)

As you can see the new packaging has been thoroughly thought out by the Batiste team. The bright new can has better, thought out design and explanations (as well as images to show people who are unsure of how to use it) Something the old can was lacking. Also, the new lid looks much better with the new design, and pops off much easier (great if you only have one hand free!)

I don't know if the formulation has been changed or not, but the powder doesn't seem to be as white as it normally is. 

The new range of Batiste packaging.

Batiste is available from Boots, Superdrug, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, ASDA and Independent chemists. 


  1. The XXL looks amazing! Hope it will come to Canada some day!

  2. I NEED this! I'm going to find a way to get it in the U.S.

  3. I have been thinking have buying some of this dry shampoo, does it actually work or does it just make your hair look greasy after you have washed it the day before? I mean would you recommend it? Hope you get back to me.


  4. Aww, I actually like the old packaging better :( Oh well, the new one's okay too, I guess.


  5. @Yasmina - i seriously have been using it for years, so i would advise buying it. Obviously your hair is going to look, feel and ultimately be cleaner if you wash it, but for 'soaking up' (for want of a better way of putting it) the oil (greasy/dirty) in your hair, its a brilliant product, and if you use it properly, (by shaking, spraying and rubbing in) then it works! Hope thats helped? (also, they do different scents, so its worth maybe looking at the different ones they have too!)

  6. I swear you can still buy the old packaged ones? I love this dry shampoo tho, it's great for festivals or days you just need a bit of va va voom :p
    I like it coming out white as my hair is really blonde, it helps to keep it looking lighter :)
