I am no newbie to Esalon. I have twice had a colour order from them, and I have been very impressed with the quality and service so far. I have previously reviewed their colour service, which can be viewed on this Blog.
They e-mailed me to offer me a sign up discount for their ‘The Match Up’ service. It is usually £22 plus p&p (£3.95), and the offer was for £11 plus p&p on my first order.
How it works is you choose 3 ‘Match up’ products from their range of Salon quality items. These range from Shampoos and Conditioners, Hair Treatments, and even towels and a colour protection gown.
The 3 items I chose are:
- · Glass Act Shine Glaze 118ml RRP £15
- · Heart Lock it Colour Care Shampoo 251ml RRP £11
- · Love Unconditionally Colour Care Conditioner 251ml RRP £11
Total RRP = £37
Total order value (what I paid) = £14.95 including postage
You can also add a further 2 items to your order, totaling 5 products. The extra 2 will be discounted by 25% per item. For example an £11 item would be £8.25 with the discount.
I had already used the Shampoo & Conditioner before, as the sachets that come with the colour are the same product, so I knew it was good. It is sulphate free and leaves no residue in my hair. The pumps on the bottles are also very handy for when you are rushing (i.e. every day when you are a mum of two boys).
You can choose the frequency of your repeat order, anything up to 12 weeks. You can also cancel easily if you do not wish to pay full price for the subscription.
The order arrived boxed, and inside there is a really cute drawstring bag containing the 3 items. This will come in handy for packing items in a suitcase. The order took a week to arrive as they come from the USA. I find that this is very reasonable.
For the discounted amount it is certainly a bargain. I have cancelled my repeat subscription for this one, as I am a huge fan of NEXXUS Nutritive Sulphate free Shampoo & Conditioner. Although the quality is definitely there, for me I have never found a better item (yet). I highly recommend you try it out for yourself and sign up for a bargain first order though. Please read my previous review for more details on their Colour Service.
