Packaging

The Percy & Reed products are in general super cute. They often have a beautiful lady in cartoon drawing and look elegant, sleek and professional.

It looks gorgeous and the coloured cartoon design looks luxurious and elegant. The Percy & Reed products always stand out of other hair products and that’s great.

The bottle itself is made of Aluminium metal (which can be recycled) and it comes with a spray pump.  The pump dispenses the product evenly as a fine mist and it also doesn’t require a lot of effort to press.

 

Colour and Texture

This is a no brainer but still worth mentioning. This product is obviously a colourless spray in the form of a fine mist.

 

Smell

The Percy & Reed Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray has a medium strength, sweet floral scent that is pleasant.

 

Price

This 100mL bottle retails for £22. It’s definitely not as cheap as other hair odour sprays but it looks natural, is not sticky and is luxury product.

 

Hair and skin compatibility

This product is compatible for all hair and skin types. There are no ingredients specific for one hair or skin type over another, except perhaps if your skin is too sensitive, you might want try a little of this spray first, as it contains fragrance and other common skin sensitisers.

 

Other

Here’s what the brand says about this product:

Ingredients

This category is not very relevant for this product as our hair is essentially dead when it is outside the body and it also won’t be touching a lot or any of your skin either. Therefore, don’t expect any nourishing value from this hairspray. There is no reason to judge it by its nourishing value of the ingredients, but I know that many of you like this analysis so here it goes regardless.  Instead of focusing on just the nourishing value, I added a little info on all ingredients to give you a general idea of what every ingredient does.

To keep this article short, I am only listing the ingredients that are skin or hair nourishing or positive/negative, while ignoring the ones that only play formulation purposes. For the full list of ingredients scroll down to the “full list of ingredients” section.

 

Ingredient positives:

  1. Cyclopentasiloxanebased formulation – A hair and skin conditioner. Temporarily fills in wrinkles or crease lines to give a more “plump” look. It enhances fluidity, making the formulation more silky spreadable and it can also “lock in” water by forming a “protective barrier” on the skin (=humectant).
  2. Isododecane – A humectant that makes products more easily spreadable.
  3. Propylene Glycol – A skin conditioner and humectant.
  4. Propane – A propellant.
  5. Isobutane – Also a propellant.
  6. Propylene Glycol Dibenzoate – Skin conditioner.
  7. PEG-12 Dimethicone– A hair and skin conditioner that can enhance the product’s spreadability.
  8. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate – A UV absorber.

 

Ingredient negatives:

  1. Alcohol Denat.– There is evidence suggesting that low molecular alcohols (denat. or not) damage and dry the skin. This can in turn enhance the penetration of other compounds into the skin, although sometimes this might not be a negative.
  2. Parfum (Fragrance) – This ingredient represents an undisclosed mixture of compounds that give the product scent. There’re more than 3000 molecules that fall under this category and I personally do not like that there are some ingredients that are undisclosed and hidden under this general name. Fragrance also does not offer any skin care benefit, in fact there is some evidence that it can damage the skin.

Obviously note that the ingredient negatives are not exactly negatives here. The spray shouldn’t come in a lot or any contact with your skin and the perfume actually works in your favour here, giving your hair a little cleaner feeling and smell.

 

Ingredients that can cause irritation to some:

This is actually really case specific, as different people have different sensitivities and allergies. Just because a compound has been reported by some to cause sensitivity, it doesn’t mean you will have an issue. “Sensitizer” compounds being present is not a negative in my opinion, as this is the case with pretty much everything out there and funnily enough I’ve seen products that are targeted specifically for sensitive skin, containing some compounds that have been reported by some, or are known to be, sensitizers.

If you have sensitive skin or you are prone to skin sensitisation and unwanted reactions, try a little bit of this at the back of your hand first and consult a medical doctor if you are concerned.
