Kerastase Nutritive Irisome Lait Vital & Bain Satin 2 ♥

 I'm a big fan of Kerastase products, they work wonders for my hair and always leave it looking fabulously shiny, healthy and give it the much needed tender loving care it deserves. I recently had the chance to try two products from Kerastase's new Nutritive Irisome range, Bain Satin 2 Irisome Complex and Lait Vital Irisome Complex a shampoo and conditioner which have worked fantastically on my locks. Now for the science bit - Kerastase's Nutritive Irisome range has been developed to provide long-lasting nutrition to hair by combating oxidation loss and dryness from styling. The range works to provide your hair with an ideal nutritional level and to maintain this level for a long time to come. The range is derived from exclusive Irisome and Royal Iris complexes which are key to nourishing and repairing the hair, detecting the dry areas and infusing them with goodness to protect, replenish and magnify hair. 

 Bain Satin 2 is a shampoo which offers exceptional nutrition for dry, sensitised hair - perfect for me as my hair is quite dry and takes a lot of conditioner to tame and repair. This shampoo contains the Irisome Complex combined with a conditioning polymer to enhance the nutritional benefits of fragile areas of the hair and a lipid agent to boost nutrient performance. This shampoo lathers exceptionally well and it feels great to wash your hair with all those bubbles, it gives the impression that your hair really is getting a deep clean. The scent of this shampoo is quite pleasant too, it leaves your hair smelling and looking as though you have just left the salon.

Lait Vital is an incredibly light conditioner which gives exceptional nutrition to normal/dry hair, again perfect for me as my hair is quite dry. Lait Vital contains the right balance of Irisome to soften and nourish the hair fiber without weighing it down, unlike other well known conditioners that I'm aware of. After using my Bain Satin 2 I apply Lait Vital and left on my hair for five minutes before rinsing. This conditioner applies very well to the hair, it smoothes effortlessly from the roots to the hair tips and is so silky. Lait Vital has quite a a similar scent to Bain Satin 2 but there is a fragrance in this that I'm not too keen on, to me it smells a bit like charcoal. I will say though that this conditioner is amazing for hair. I usually have to use a leave-in conditioning spray in order to comb through my hair after washing but after using Lait Vital I was able to comb through my hair without any aid.

I have been using Lait Vital and Bain Satin 2 for a few weeks now and I must say my experience has been nothing but joyful with these products. The products have transformed my hair from being a dry, unruly, headache to style to a ultra-soft, silky, smooth delight, my hair looks as though it has been through a salon treatment and is so easy to manage now. People have actually commented on how healthy and soft my hair looks and feels so it's been great to get this positive feedback as my hair has always been my 'thing' and I like it to look the best it can. I'm once again left super impressed by Kerastase and these products within the Nutritive Irisome range are nothing but pure quality for hair.

Bain Satin 2 is €18.90 and Lait Vital is €22.30, these and the other products within the Nutritive Irisome range are available from Kerastase salons nationwide from next month. You can read more about these and other products by Kerastase on the Kerastase website.



  1. Love the Kerastase, saved my hair. I love the Resistance range, but this one sounds amazing too x.

  2. Great review - sounds like a super product, but on the other hand, I wouldn't expect anything less from Kérastase :o). Xx

  3. L'oreal does make good products, so i heard, but sadly I can never try them because they are drying to my hair type. :) But I'm glad you like the product!

  4. Great review! I love Kerastase too. They are truly effective but they are quite expensive in our country.
