Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner | Review

If you are someone with super long, super thin, knotty hair, then one of the objects that you fear the most would be your hair brush. Getting all those super fine knots out is an arduous task, especially if you use heat on your hair in any form. I go through this ordeal every single day, and the only week when my hair is extremely manageable and easy to brush through is when I get an argan oil hair spa done at my local salon, and they always use Moroccan Oil products on my hair. In an attempt to extend the softening and smoothing effects of the occasional hair spa, I decided to buy Moroccan Oil products for my home-haircare routine, and since the products from the brand are not the cheapest on the block, I decided to experiment with just the Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner first. Read on to find out my thoughts about this product.

Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner | Review

This conditioner is in the form of a light cream that smells heavenly, just like the products at the spa that I love. I use it on my wet, shampooed hair and rinse off after 2-3 minutes. Despite being an argan oil based product, the conditioner is not heavy on the hair at all and does not leave behind any oily or greasy residue. However, it detangles the hair beautifully and leaves them less prone to tangling until the next wash. It reduces frizziness and helps my hair fall into uniform waves, which is their natural shape. It does not make my hair unusually glossy and does not fare exceptionally well in the shine department, but it does reduce the roughness of the hair and makes it softer to the touch. I also love the minimalistic design of the bottle and the press lid, which makes the product travel-friendly.

Overall, I feel that to replicate the full effect of the professional hair spa, I will have to buy the entire hair care range from the brand, which includes the shampoo, mask, and oil based treatment. However, to extend the effects of the spa or to make the hair smoother than it is with most conditioners, this product is a good choice. The price of INR  1530 for a 250 ml bottle is definitely not budget-friendly but I think it is an investment that I needed to make for my perpetually rough hair. Will keep you posted if I buy more products from the brand. Are you going to try this conditioner? Let me know how it works for you if you do!

St.D’vence Autumn Edition Moisturiser – Ultra-Enriching Body Lotion | Review

I must confess, I am one of those people who are always too lazy to use a body lotion. I may follow a seven-step skincare routine for my face but when it comes to my arms and legs, I assume that they will fend for themselves. This attitude doesn’t give me much trouble during the warm and humid summers but come fall and winter and my skin starts complaining about the dryness and flakiness, and I have to half-heartedly make some room for a body lotion on my vanity. However, this autumn and winter, I have a body lotion with me that is actually a joy to use, and this product is the St. D’vence Autumn Edition Moisturiser, an Ultra-Enriching Body Lotion that is perfect for the colder months.

St.D'vence Autumn Edition Moisturiser - Ultra-Enriching Body Lotion | Review

This nourishing body lotion contains Argan Oil, Avocado Butter, Olive Oil, and Vitamin E, ingredients that I really enjoy slathering all over my skin. Also, the fact that these hydrating oils and many other natural ingredients are the first many names in the ingredients list proves that this is truly a product that celebrates nature’s goodness and does not just use trace natural ingredients as a marketing strategy. It is paraben-free, mineral oil free, phthalates free, and hypoallergenic, basically it is devoid of all harmful chemicals that can damage your skin.

St.D'vence Autumn Edition Moisturiser - Ultra-Enriching Body Lotion | Review

Texturewise, it has a fairly thick consistency – somewhere between that of a body butter and a body lotion, however, it spreads evenly on the skin and gets absorbed quickly, without leaving any white streaks. It has a feminine, perfumey scent which I absolutely love because I enjoy layering up products to smell good all day long. This scent may seem a little strong when first applied but it does fade to a beautiful and mild floral scent within a few minutes and lasts for several hours on the skin. As for the efficacy of the moisturiser itself, it leaves the skin supple, hydrated, and healthy looking, without any traces of dryness.

I will also like to give a special mention to the packaging, it is so cute and is the perfect size for travelling with! The flip cap, the shimmery label, and the tiny leaf at the front make the bottle utilitarian as well as perfect to fit in with the autumn theme. I do not like to travel with bulky lotion bottles and find decanting them quite a messy affair, so this packaging is a boon for me.

OGX Morocco Argan Oil Hair Conditioner | Review

My hair care is such a mish-mash of products that it often tends to confuse people. The reason for this is that I have combination hair that is oily at the roots and can be extremely dry at the ends. This is why I usually use a volumizing shampoo combined with a nourishing conditioner so that both the problems get addressed. I have currently been using the OGX Morocco Argan Oil Conditioner and will be reviewing it for you guys today.

OGX Morocco Argan Oil Hair Conditioner | Review

OGX hair products usually never disappoint me and this conditioner is no exception. It contains the goodness of Argan oil that penetrates the hair and leaves them incredibly soft and smooth. However, the best thing about the conditioner is that unlike most argan oil based hair masks and conditioners, this product does not weigh my hair down at all. My hair feels glossy, but not greasy, and healthier whenever I use this conditioner. One thing I always make sure is that I only apply it to the lower halves of my hair so that the scalp remains oil free.

OGX Morocco Argan Oil Hair Conditioner | Review

If you are someone with extremely dry hair then using this conditioner in conjunction with the shampoo from the same range will work very well for you. But if you have combination hair like mine then pair it with a shampoo meant for oily hair for optimal results.

OGX Morocco Argan Oil Hair Conditioner | Review

Priced at INR 725 for a massive 385ml bottle, this beautifully packaged conditioner is a mid-range product that is a good alternative if you do not want to spend a fortune on higher-end products. Also, OGX has a vast range of alternatives for different hair types, so even if you do not have dry hair, you can still find something from the brand that you love. So do check out their collection and let me know how it works for you.

I hope that you enjoyed this review. You can buy the OGX Morocco Argan Oil Conditioner here.  

Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil | Review

Essential oils hold a very special place in my heart because they are a one-stop solution to a multitude of skin and hair concerns. One brand that has really impressed me with their wide selection of essential oils, including sandalwood oil, avocado oil, and citronella oil to name a few, is Ryaal. Today I will be talking about the Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil which was kindly sent to me by the brand to review, in the form of a tiny royal blue glass bottle full of golden goodness.

Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil Review India

The Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil is 100% pure and natural and is also cold pressed, which helps to retain the goodness of the Argan nuts in the best manner possible. This stunning blue bottle comes with a handy dropper that prevents wastage of the product, and you can add a precise amount of the oil to your homemade hair masks and face packs. I have already tried adding a few drops of this oil to my favorite hair mask and my hair felt so much softer than usual that I couldn’t stop running my fingers through my tresses. I also tried using this oil as a serum for the dry patches on my face, and as expected, the richness of the oil eliminated the dryness entirely.

Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil Review India

This oil has a very faint, nutty smell, which means that the brand has not tried to enhance the natural scent by adding perfumes to the mix. Such a wonderful product does not need any additives to make it shine, it is perfect as it is and I am glad that Ryaal focusses on retaining the natural goodness of the oil. Texturewise, it is not too thick, and, in fact, does not feel heavy on the skin at all. A few drops of the oil can be used as a daily serum to keep the skin hydrated and baby soft. If you have oily hair, then you can mix it in with your conditioner and if you have dry ends then you can apply a small amount to your hair after drying to make them glossy and smooth. The options are endless with this marvelously versatile product!

Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil Review India

The Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil is available on Amazon in bottles of different sizes ranging from 15ml to 1000ml. The 15ml bottle is priced at INR 199, which is pretty reasonable for pure Argan oil. I am really grateful to Ryaal for sending me a sample of this fantastic product and I will definitely be purchasing more oils from their amazing range soon!

Here is the link to buy the Ryaal Essentials Argan Oil from Amazon.

You can also follow @ryaalusa on Instagram to stay updated on all the latest releases from the brand.

I hope that you enjoy this lovely argan oil as much as I do and do let me know if you try any other essential oils from Ryaal.

XoXo,

Loreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Hair Mask | Review

All the ladies suffering from dry and dull hair, this post is just for you! Today I will share with you, my wonderful experience with the Loreal Paris Mythic Oil Nourishing Hair Mask.  This product belongs to the Professionnel Mythic Oil range of the brand and is enriched with the goodness of Argan Oil and other nourishing natural oils. This mask revives dry, damaged and lifeless hair and adds softness and shine.

I suffer from extremely dry ends that tend to tangle up and resemble a bird’s nest, but this product sorts out all these problems really well. I skip conditioner once a week and use this mask on my wet, shampooed hair instead. I leave the product on for around 10 -15 minutes and the result is luscious, smooth and detangled locks. I have also noticed a significant decline in split ends since I have switched to this product.

 IMG_6129.JPG

The mask has a thick, creamy texture and a rich, nutty smell. Be warned that a little goes a long way with this product and it does infuse the follicles with nourishing oil, therefore I would recommend avoiding the roots and applying the mask from the mid-length to the tips. The product is available in a brand new packaging (different from the one in the photos) at INR 950 for a 200ml jar. I think that it is a great alternative to a costly hair spa at the salon!
