Hello guys, how are you? Are you excited for Christmas? I can`t wait for this period to be over, the schedule is killing me. All this week I had to work until 11, next week until 12…Seriously, who does shopping at these hours? Although most of the time I like working in retails, I must say…hopefully next year I`ll do something else because it sucks I`m the only one that has to go to work and can`t celebrate Christmas with the family.
Ok, after my usual rant, here comes the review. As you know by now, most of my reviews are about makeup products, they`re easier to test and you can have a firm opinion on the first use. But when it comes to skincare or hair products, I like to test something for at least 2 months, to see if it really works or not. I actually forgot when I bought this oil, but from the first use I got hooked and could not stop using it. I already used 3 bottles of shampoo and 2 bottles of conditioner, but today the focus will be on Garnier Ultimate Blends: The Sleek Perfector Oil.
The design is quite simple, it gives you all the details you need from ingredients to the multiple uses of the product. I like the fact that the bottle is transparent, like this, you can see how much product you have left. It also comes with a pump, which makes it easier to apply and less messy.
Because I have greasy hair, I am a bit sceptical when it comes to oils. However, the great part about this oil is that it has multiple uses. You can use before washing your hair, before styling or anytime you want to add a bit of shine. I personally prefer using it before washing my hair, I apply it to the lengths and leave it for about 30 minutes (I use it similar to a mask, to help me with split ends and dry parts). Then I just wash my hair normally (shampoo, conditioner, mask), towel dry and blow-dry. I must say, the results are impressive. The first thing you`ll notice is how smooth your hair is afterwards. It looks really healthy and shiny, feels extremely soft to the touch and even though it`s an oil, it does not weigh your hair down. However, you`ll get the best results if you use it after you wash your hair. I tried it a couple of times before blow-drying my hair, it really helped to detangle and reduce the frizz, my hair was a lot easier to style afterwards. But the best part was the scent because you know me, everything that smells like coconuts makes me a happy girl. Because let’s be honest, the scent was the first thing that got me addicted to this whole range. Doesn`t work? Who Cares? It smells like COCONUTS. Luckily the scents aren’t the only good thing about this product.
Considering you only need a few drops when you use it, at 10 pounds the price is a bargain, if you think about how long it will last. I know some people use really expensive hair oils, but the quality of this one is beyond amazing and can easily compete with the high-end brands. I actually sampled some oils that cost between 30-50 pounds and I can`t see a difference between them and the results I got from using the Ultimate Blends Oil. This is a product that I`ll definitely buy all the time.
