Last Minute Christmas Gift Idea | Mark Hill Gorgeous Brunette Mini Gift Set

Boots are well known for their Christmas gift selection and their fabulous 3 for 2 offer, so if you've still got a few last minute gifts to purchase then these Mark Hill Hair Gift sets are an absolute steal and a perfect stocking filler at just £10 each! There are 3 sets to choose from, including Glam Blonde, Get It Straight, and finally Gorgeous Brunette*, which I will be sharing with you today...

"Make It Dark, Make It Rich, Make It Shine!"
The limited edition Mark Hill Gorgeous Brunette gift comes beautifully packaged and contains 4 travel sized products. Each enriched with natural ingredients such as cocoa and coffee beans to help you get the gorgeous, rich and glossy hair you want, every day!

The set contains a shampoo and conditioner, both of which come in handy 75ml squeeze tubes. These would be ideal to keep for travelling purposes over the Christmas and New Year period, if you're off visiting family and friends, or heading out to a swish hotel for a New Years party?

Mark Hill Gorgeous Brunette Shine Enhancing Shampoo
"Brown, Chocolate, Caramel  or Brunette, call it what you like - I just call it gorgeous!"
First off, the shampoo's formula is very thin and runny, so be ready to act fast once you squeeze this out the bottle haha. I was surprised at how such a formula managed to lather up so much, it was really easy to work with and rinsed out easily. It felt like my hair had been thoroughly cleansed. Not to mention it was left beautifully fragranced too! 

Mark Hill Gorgeous Brunette Highlight Reflecting Conditioner
"Psst...Do you want me to tell you how to get gorgeous brunette hair every day?"
The conditioner is noticeably thicker and creamier than the shampoo, and has a gorgeous golden brown shading to it. I applied the conditioner and left it to soak into my hair for 5 mins (I always leave it in for this long no matter what conditioner I use) I could really tell the conditioner had worked even as soon as I was rinsing it out, my hair felt much smoother to touch and combed through easily with no snags.

The pack also contains two styling/finishing products, which come in 50ml sized tins:

Mark Hill Fabulous Finish Hairspray
"Keep your style exactly where you want it, all day long!"
I was going to say this would be the perfect handbag sized hairspray to keep your hairstyle in place at all the party's this festive season, however the spray holds so well, you'll only need to apply once before you go out! Once you've styled your hair how you want it, just spritz this over to stay looking flawless all day/night! The formula dries quickly after application and it simply brushes out without a build up of product.

Could Be Magic Anti Humidity Shine Spray
"There's nothing more annoying than frizz and flyaways especially when you have spent time getting your style just right"
I couldn't agree more! I suffer very badly from frizzy hair on humid days, and its most annoying when you've spent so long styling for a night out! I haven't had chance to try this spray out yet, so I can't comment much on the effect it has. But the concept is, once you've completed your hair styling process, spray this in the air, and walk underneath the mist to leave a layer of sparkling shine to add that finishing touch to your hair!

Overall, this kit comes with all the necessary products for your glamorous hair styling needs at this time of year, and is well worth the tiny price tag of £10. You could even pick up a couple for your friends and family on the 3 for 2 offer to make the price even less! They are available at Boots stores & you can view/purchase online - Link, but hurry before they sell out!
