IN DETAIL

I got the body butter as a gift. I have been using lotions forever; I have used Nivea, LAKME, and what not. I have tried all lotions but this body butter was somewhat of a different experience altogether. To begin with, it was a bit hard and more solid than a lotion. It is best when applied after a shower because all the pores are free at that time. The one I have is a 200g or 7 oz tub.

It contains shea butter and Asian pear along with mimosa petals, white jasmine and also, creamy sandalwood. It costs 15 $ or in INR it would be about 950 rupees. A bit expensive, the quantity and quality make it worth the price. It is nongreasy and absorbs quickly. It provides a glow to the skin which is subtle yet really makes the skin look smooth. It is very beneficial for people with dry and flaky skin or sensitive skin because it doesn’t make the skin greasy but at the same time, it provides nourishment. The perfume lasts for at least 6-8 hours, in my experience it did.

PROS
  1. It smells good.
  2. It is nongreasy.
  3. It makes the skin soft and smooth.
  4. It works amazingly for all skin types.
  5. It gives an instant glow and shine to the skin.
  6. It comes with awesome packaging.
  7. It gets rid of the dry and flaky skin.
  8. It blends in with the skin perfectly without any ugly white patches.
CONS
  1. It is a bit on the costlier side.
  2. It is hard to apply at first.
  3. Not all might like the applying process because it takes time.
  4. Lack of availability; bath and body works is a store currently operating with various branches only within the United States Of America.
Would I Recommend It For Repurchasing?

I probably won’t repurchase it until and unless I have a lot of money to spend on this, but since the quality of the product is exceedingly brilliant and the quantity is not questionable either, I might probably repurchase. But if I had to rate it, I would give it a 4 on 5.

L’Oreal 6 Oil Nourish Oil in Cream and L'Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum 9

Curly hair, corkscrews, ramen noodles, potato, pa-tah-to. If you already didn’t catch on what I am talking about over here, let me introduce you to curly hair. If you have curly hair, it naturally means you will need a lot of product to keep your hair looking a little less like a bird’s nest.

Curly hair can be really gorgeous and beautiful if treated in the right way with the right products.

Today, in this blog post, I have decided to introduce you to two of my best friends, both inexpensive and totally amazing.

This is my review of the product duo LOREAL 6 OIL NOURISH OIL-IN-REPLACEMENT CREAM and the INSTANT SMOOTHING SERUM.

  • Let me relate this to the second product which is the instant smoothing serum.
  • It has a few drawbacks, it gets greasy when not applied proportionately or if not distributed evenly.
  • This is a leave in serum which gives life to dull hair. It works best when you apply it after the shower or before styling.
  • It gives a really amazing shine when applied before styling.

 

PRICING-

  • And here is the most amazing part of this hair cream, it costs 80 bucks. (INR). BOOM. Like I said, inexpensive and effective and you’re welcome.
  • The second product, the serum costs about 255 bucks. (INR) The hair cream costs a lot less than this but this serum is very nourishing for the hair.

My Experience with L’Oreal 6 Oil Nourish Oil in Cream and L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum

Going in detail, this product is to be used right after the shower or an hour or two before the shower or at bedtime and I would personally prefer after showering before overnight application and you end up with a headache. It is strongly scented, one of the drawbacks if you are a bit sensitive to strong perfumes.

It is perfect if you have a case of really frizzy hair which looks like you have just been electrocuted (no sarcasm or puns intended) because trust me, I’ve been through that.

This is my personal experience and this is how I generally style my hair; After washing my hair with a regular shampoo and conditioner, I dry my hair with a soft t-shirt, yes, not a towel but a t-shirt, it does not cause the hair to get rough and static and frizzy (towels are rough) but that’s another story and then I take tiny amounts of the both cream and the serum and evenly distribute it throughout my hair. After that, I let it work its magic and let my hair air dry, it dries faster and better as a matter of fact.

Always dry your hair a little before applying the product, it has to be damp, not dripping wet, the product will drip away with the water.

Overall Performance of L’Oreal 6 Oil Nourish Oil in Cream and L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum

PROS

  • Easy to apply
  • Non-greasy
  • Affordable and easily available
  • Long lasting

CONS

  • Strongly scented
  • Do not use too much product at once, causes hair to look greasy.

Please remember that if you are allergic or sensitive to any chemicals or any fragrances, please consult a hair specialist or even a dermatologist before use.

There you go, two lovely products, easily available, affordable to manage unruly hair.

In my opinion, these two go hand in hand and have worked very well for me.

Would I Repurchase?

I would certainly recommend purchasing the oil in cream but I would give it a second thought before going for the hair serum.
