My boyfriend just glanced over at my screen and said "You've turned into a giant Pantene bottle!" to which I responded plainly, "Yes. There's no way I can be in the same photo as Cat Deeley. She's too pretty."
Today, Cat Deeley was unveiled in the UK as the new ambassador for Pantene Pro-V. Specifically, she's promoting the new Pantene Aqua Light range (see my recent experience with Pantene Aqua Light here).
Cat Deeley looked gorgeous at the Dorchester hotel this evening in London. You know how some celebs look craggy and overly made-up in real life? Well, Cat doesn't. Annoyingly, she looks even better in real life... a true, natural beauty, with bone structure and hair I would kill for. Not to mention the tiniest, most delicate ankles I've ever seen. Who is this woman?? Bambi???
Here are a few photos I took of Cat while she answered questions about life in LA, her beauty regime etc. She seemed very sweet.
Pantene Aqua Light is now out in the usual places you find Pantene (Boots, Superdrug, supermarkets etc) with prices around the £3 mark. I actually really, really like the Lightweight Nourishing Conditioner. I honestly never thought I'd ever say I liked a Pantene product but this range actually does what it says on the tin. If detangles and lightly conditions my long hair without weighing it down (but still smoothes down those sticky-up bits around my parting). It rinses out clean and doesn't seem to leave any residue on my hair or scalp, meaning that I can go even longer without washing it (I can regularly leave it for 3 days before washing).
This is not a silicone-free range, but the silicones have been formulated to be as water-soluble as possible in order to give that clean-rinsed feeling. I usually avoid silicone-laden hair products because they make my scalp (and the top of my back) itchy and bumpy, but I don't get this problem with the Aqua Light range.
There are a couple of other products which I haven't tried yet which are the Lightweight Nourishing Mist and the Lightweight Nourishment Treatment (a weekly rinse-out treatment conditioner). I'm still not sure what benefits the leave-in spray will give me (I'm a rinse-out girl), but I am looking forward to trying the treatment conditioner.
By the way, I was discussing whether Cat Deeley does actually use Pantene Aqua Light... I mean, does she really have bottles of it in her bathroom that she reaches for in the mornings? But then I realised that I am probably even more of a haircare snob than she is, and I'm currently willingly choosing to use Pantene Aqua Light over my old favourites. Call me naïve, but I like to think that she does genuinely like the range.
