My Batiste Dry Shampoo Collection

Yes, I have a Batiste dry shampoo 'collection'...

Over the past year or so, I have gathered quite the collection of Batiste cans.

I love Batiste!
Seriously, dry shampoo is one of the best beauty product inventions, ever.

Batiste is a saviour.
No more bad hair days, just Batiste Hair Days!
Batiste is my favourite dry shampoo. I've tried others and none have lived up to Batiste's standards! Batiste is cheaper, the product works better, it does not leave hair heavy or chalky and the can designs are so pretty. Batiste have 3 sizes: mini, regular and large.

They come in handy.
They last so long.
The bottles are pretty.

The above being main reasons for which I have such a large collection! I can't get rid of them and I often pick up cans if they are on offer, or when new variants are released.

I'm a hoarder and I hoard Batiste...

I use my Batiste, not only on days where I haven't had time to wash my hair, or my hair is feeling like it needs a freshen up, but also, when I want some volume or matt-look hair.
Having long hair, I do find that smells cling to it, like the greasy spoon deli where I would return from the milk run, to then sit in the office with hair smelling of grease (nothing really worse than that, yuck!). Luckily, I always have a can of Batiste in my office drawer, or in my handbag, so I use it to freshen my hair and rid me of horrendous smells.

It is a complete essential when I rock out at Download Festival every summer. I always have a can of Batiste in my tent. Gotta keep fresh whilst I'm rocking out and partying in fields :) I met a guy at Download last year, who had a large can of Batiste Tropical in his tent, I thought that was quite cool. Guys love Batiste too.

Even when I had crazy Cyber Purple hair, Batiste worked a treat! Unlike another dry shampoo, which looked hideously chalky on my purple locks!

Where do I store all these cans?
Well, I keep them in the goodie bag that I got at the Batiste Lace launch last year. I like to find ways to re-use, rather than throw things away and the Batiste bag has really come in handy.

A while back, I had some nail art inspiration from the Batiste Cherry, when it first came out in stores. My Batiste Cherry inspired nail art went down a storm, which was great and Batiste loved it :)

I would recommend Batiste and often recommend it to friends, family and fellow bloggers.
I'm always shocked when people tell me they have not tried it, or not heard of Batiste before!

There are so many variants now, different looks, different scents, XXL Volume. I'm not sure I could pick a favourite, though I have always been fond of Wild.

My collection includes:
Shimmer x2, Boho, XXL x2, Blush large, Limited Edition Hershesons, Graffiti, Paisley
Lace x2, Cherry x2, Wild, Tropical regular and mini, Blush mini x2

 A closer look...

Boho, I actually didn't realise I had, until I found it in my 'box of unused products'.

XXL Volume:
1 purchased and 1* from the #NorthMeetUp goodie bag.
Read about the event here and the goodie bag here.

Silver Shimmer:
I got these on offer in Boots clearance.
Glittery dry shampoo!

I have also reviewed:
Batiste Lace and you can read about the fabulous Batiste Lace launch event here.
Batiste Cherry - you can check out my cherry nail art there too...

I remember when there was just 1 Batiste, Original. It's great to see how many they have since released!
For more information on Batiste variants, click here.
There are a couple not on here, including the Wild Party Trio of minis, which was released around Christmas. I haven't tried those!
More recently, Batiste have introduced coloured dry shampoo to the collection.
I can't wait for Batiste to bring out their next variant and I'm excited to find out what the next one will be!

Batiste can be found in Boots, Superdrug, Bodycare, supermarkets, pharmacies, online.

Disclaimer: This post was written by me, out of my own love for the brand. This is not a sponsored post and I have not been asked to write this. I just love Batiste dry shampoo and want to share/product rave about them! A couple of the bottles in this post were gifted to me, or included in goodie bags from events, but the majority were purchased by me, with my own money. As always, all opinions are my own and reviews are 100% honest.

    1. Thank you! Dry shampoo is one of the best beauty products, ever! You're welcome, I'm glad this was helpful :) x

  5. Luv ur post! I luv lots of dry shampoos & yes I agree that Batiste is a great brand. To my disappointment, my very fave one, the silver shimmer (perfect for my blonde/grey hair) has been discontinued in Australia & I cannot order online from another country as they don't send aerosol cans! I miss it. My hair looked a million bucks!
