We have all heard about the miracle that is AUSSIE haircare products, the sweet almost bubblegum smelling shampoo and conditioner that never fails to leave your hair smooth, silky and smelling gorgeous, but retailing at up to £6 a bottle depending on where you go, wouldn’t it be great to find something almost the same but just cheaper?
Say hello to Cien’s Mega Moisture range exclusive to Lidl. With its packaging almost exactly the same as Aussie – can this 99p a bottle dupe live up to everything that the Australian haircare brand promises if not more? I decided to test them out and share my review with you all here on my blog.
Okay so texture wise, it’s slightly thinner than Aussie, scent – exactly the same as Aussie, possibly even more bubblegum scented, I couldn’t tell any differences at all regarding the actual shampooing of my hair, it lathered just the same as the Aussie one, and left my hair feeling silky smooth and not heavy or weighed down which I hate.
Overall rating out of 5: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Major disappointment with the conditioner unfortunately, firstly with the scent.. not sure quite what the smell was but it wasn’t sweet and it wasn’t at all resembling Aussie, it actually was a really unpleasant smell and not something I’d want to use on my hair. Texture wise, extremely runny in consistency, where as I always tend to go for a thicker based conditioner that really moisturises my hair, maybe more so like a mask.. this particular conditioner was so thin and watery that I needed to use loads of it to even be able to get a brush to go through it.
