Over the past couple of weeks I have been lucky enough to be involved in testing the new range of hair care from Procter & Gamble’s famous and iconic Pantene Pro-V hair products range. I have been a part of The Savvy Circle for a few years but this is the first time I have been invited to take part in the project, and I was super excited to take part in it! Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse and Nourish shampoo and conditioner are the products I have never heard of before The Savvy Circle’s latest project newsletter landed in my inbox a few weeks ago.
I was intrigued, as I am no stranger to micellar water, which is the miracle skincare product used by thousands of people worldwide! It seems that micellar water has taken the world by storm and there is no sign of it going away in a hurry. I, for one, can vouch for gentleness and effectiveness of everyone’s favourite Bioderma Sensibio micellar water (I remember those good old days when you could only buy it in France!). So, naturally, I was curious to see if the micellar water in hair products is as nice, gentle and effective, as it is in skincare.
Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse and Nourish shampoo and conditioner promise to purify and nourish hair, without stripping, product features a silicone -free formula (that is always a plus in my book!) but, sadly, contains SLS to make it lather so well. I guess I can live with that!
According to project specification on Savvy Circle website “The collection is designed to both effectively purify and nourish hair without stripping its natural nutrients, it also provides all the strength our hair needs without the weight.”
Inside the goodie bag I found two sets of full-size products – one set is for me and the other set is for one lucky friend 🙂 I hope she is enjoying these as much as I have been!
I have also received a pack of 50 pence off vouchers to give out to friends.
As you can see, packs are quite large – shampoo and conditioner bottles contain 400ml each (a very generous amount of product for the price of around £2.50-£3!)

I have fine coloured hair, I normally wash it twice a week and as doing it more often causes excess sebum production and dries the ends out too much. Also, I am not ashamed to say that I am a low-maintenance kinda girl (in other words, lazy), so twice a week wash suits me best!
My hair certainly feels soft and somehow has more volume and bounce and weightlessness to it. Here is how my hair looks from the back:
Being a lover of expensive hair care products such as Davines, Davines, Davines and having now used the Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse and Nourish I can safely say that is a good range of inexpensive but effective hair products which I will definitely consider repurchasing: it gives me bouncy, fresh hair without drying out my strands. I do enjoy the conditioner, it feels quite nourishing! The range is safe for my coloured hair as it is quite gentle, and if you have greasy hair it will suit you even better! Oh, and it is worth adding that the smell is super nice and it lingers in my hair for a while too, which is a bonus!
I like that Pantene products are very affordable (a large bottle of the shampoo costs around £2.50-£3) and are widely available from any major supermarkets and pharmacies such as Boots, Superdrug and even from Amazon Pantry.
I hope you enjoyed reading this little report. Check the Pantene Pro-V Micellar Cleanse and Nourish products out if you have not done so already, and let me know your thoughts on these or other Pantene products!
