I didn’t take many beauty products on holiday with me – I got by on Lanolips Lip Ointment in Sunshine, a sample of Benefit’s Cha Cha Tint, some black kohl for my eyes and a Bourjois khaki eye liner and that was pretty well it, make up wise. However, I did take a sample of Milk_Shake Glistening Argan Oil that I picked up in Bologna with me and it was the saviour of the holiday. Basically, put my hair in sunshine, mix it with a light breeze and some pool water and you have a head-load of chaos. But, if your hair hates silicones, look away now! Because I suspect it is absolutely full of them.


Annoyingly, the bottle is too tiny to find out the full ingredient list, although the blurb says that it has a generous amount of Argan in it. None of the sites that list it give a full ingredient breakdown – although I will say that the number of stockists of the Milk_Shake range has absolutely shot up since I first started looking a couple of months ago when there was literally just one (lookfantastic.com). 

You can buy a small 10ml bottle for about £4 to try it out and if your hair is frizz prone, curly and you like to straighten it out, dry or generally in a state of unmanageability, I’d thoroughly recommend it. The oil feels very similar to Moroccan Oil (hence my suspicions that it is silicone heavy) – a little lighter in consistency maybe – and has left my hair in a state of softness and shine last seen when I was about seven and was convinced that 100 strokes of the brush would leave me with Rapunzel-esq tresses. 

I think Milk_Shake is a brand to look out for because they’ve got some stand-out and curiously named products, such as Milk_Shake Integrity Booster and Milk_Shake Summer Pleasure Oil for Hair and Skin. 

Hmm, don’t mind if I do.
