A Beauty Writer’s Favourite (Gut-Wrenchingly Expensive) Hair Mask Is the Cheapest We’ve Ever Seen It

Our beauty writer Rio can’t get enough of Christophe Robin’s hair masks. She writes: “His Prickly Pear Recovery and Baby Blonde Mask are two of the best hair-care products I’ve ever used, end of story. After applying either of these masks, my hair is smoother, silkier, intensely moisturized, and air dries like a dream. But it is a painful kind of love: Christophe Robin hair care is very, extremely, gut-wrenchingly expensive.”

So we were thrilled to spot the Prickly Pear Recovery mask in the Look Fantastic sale for £40.50 (the cheapest we’ve ever seen it, and 25% off). In fact, all the Christophe Robin masks are on sale — including the shade variation masks that Rio recommends for coloured hair. She concludes: “The only problem I can find with this product is that it’s expensive: £54. But it’s the rare expensive item I have never once regretted purchasing. It is just good enough to justify the price. Plus, it lasts: During the six months I was a redhead, I went through only one tub.”
