VO5 Plump It Up Mousse!

Hello :)

A key part of my routine when blow drying my hair is a decent hair mousse. I've used hair mousses from the likes of Label M to John Frieda, but none come close to this little beauty, allow me to introduce you to Vo5's Plump It Up Mousse!

Vo5 are an established brand which everyone is aware of, however in the past year or so they have kind of been overshadowed by other brands with snazzy advertising campaigns, eyecatching packaging and innovative products. However, Vo5 have recently undergone a rebranding and relaunch in order to compete with their fellow competitors and regain the top spot in the hair care stakes.

A few weeks back whilst watching TV, i was captivated by a rather mesmerizing advert;

Good eh?! So during my next visit to Boots/Superdrug i made a mental note to have a look at the Vo5 products.

The revamped Vo5 products really stood out on the stands, the hot pink packaging really grabs your attention! Needing a new hair mousse, i plumped for the Plump It Up Mousse, and was excited to not only use the product but also to sit the pretty packaged product on my dressing table...

The mousse itself comes out in the shape of Squirty Cream/Mr Whippy Ice Cream, a nice surprise, i always pretend i'm making an ice-cream when i dispense the product! haha ;)

The consistency of the mousse is quite light, which makes it a lot easier to disperse throughout your hair. I hate it when you use quite a heavy mousse and mid blow drying you find blobs of mousse just hanging in your hair!

Once i've applied the mousse, i then blowdry my hair with my head flipped upside down, (much to my sister's amusement!) as i find this helps give your hair a bit more oomph!

Overall, i really like this mousse. Its light to apply, not sticky and gives you thickness and volume. I'd recommend this mousse for anyone who is looking for a new mousse, including people with fine/thin hair, as its so light and will not weigh down your hair! An added bonus is that it has a heat defence feature, which is great, especially for lazy people like me who often forget to use a heat protection product before applying heat.

Have you tried any of the recently revamped VO5 range? I'm looking to buy the VO5 Miracle Concentrate next, which i've heard rave reviews about.

  1. Great review! I've never tried anything from this line - i have been interested in the miracle concentrate for a few weeks and now I'm rather interested in this too! xo

  2. Oh brill this is good to know... I have a Tresemme mousse but it's not great. Will def give this a go. I heard the VO5 hairsprays are meant to be great as well... ;)

  3. Nice review, I haven't tried any V05, but I also want to try the miracle concentrate!

  4. Great review! I needed a new mousse so will definitely give this a try :)


  5. you literally have no idea how good it is to find someone who can tell me what a good mousse is! i've found it difficult to find a good one, what with having curly hair, that'll keep it bouncy but won't dry it out. i've tried all sorts and nothing really seems to do the job! will definitely try this next.
