Percy & Reed 'Quite Frankly Flawless' Finishing Polish - Review

Bonjour!

The Percy & Reed Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish is one of the products I picked up with the recent Glamour offer ... it usually retails at around £10/125ml as you can see from their groovy website here, which I think is reasonable anyway...


Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish

Alleluia for horse chestnut extract and sunflower wax!
100ml tube so should last for ages!
 I use a tiny amount (Percy & Reed recommend pea-sized but my 'pea' is slightly mis-shapen!) after drying and straightening and rub well into my palms before applying. As with any product of this nature it's obviously better to start off with less and add more if needed.  It's a gel-cream which smooths, adds shape and light hold but in a flexible/malleable way and I haven't had to use any additional hairspray.  I wash my hair every 2 days. I can go to bed all nicely 'Percy & Reeded' on day 1 - however, overnight my hair has this magical ability to transform itself into a complete birds nest. I've used my Finishing Polish on day 2 and it's ideal for taming those (many) frizzy bits and creating a bit of a texturised, almost bed-head, 'Alexa Chung'd' look (which is, in fact, my ultimate 'hair-goal'!). Many finishing products are either too heavy/greasy/sticky on my super-fine hair - this is perfect for me, you can place the correct amount of product exactly where you need it and as with all the Percy & Reed products I've used, it smells good too!

I didn't intend writing this review so soon - I usually buy (numerous) products and put them away for what seems like an eternity.  However, I used this the day after I bought it and have been so impressed I just had to 'get it out there' (I've already bought another Glamour mag just to get an additional Finishing Polish!).  The Percy & Reed offer with Glamour mag is still available and at £2.00 a pop you really can't go wrong!

Have you tried out Percy & Reed Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish? (Have you tried saying all that lot after a few drinks?!)

  2. I'm tempted to go and get this now too - the oil and the shampoo are amazing - do you think 3 glamour mags in one month is excessive - oh never mind I'm going to get it - for £2 you can't go wrong!

    1. I know Sasha - for the price of the mag you can't go wrong if you like the product. You have lovely thick hair and it's obviously working for you too! xx

  6. Okay for £2 I can be persuaded bearing in mind I get a "free" magazine. Alexa Chung'd hair is good. It's kind of what I asked for when I last went. Are you going to visit the new Trinity shopping centre in Leeds?

    1. Alexa is my hair hero - think my hairdresser is sick of me constantly shoving her pics under his nose! Not really thought about visiting the centre yet Sue - curious to see what shops there are though!:)
