Product Spotlight: Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil


I bought this product a couple of weeks ago now, and I am so impressed by it, I thought I'd give it it's own little review.

I've loved Moroccan Oil for a long time, but after finding out it didn't really have many benefits to your hair, and at a steep price, I left it aside for special occasions. I then went out and got pure Coconut Oil from Superdrug, and I feel like that has really helped my hair, but it can also be slightly too heavy, and it doesn't aid shine, enter this.


I feel like this product is somewhere in the middle ground. It is £9.99 in Boots, and a decent sized bottle. It is thinner than Moroccan oil, but easier to use than the Coconut Oil. I only need the smallest amount, maybe half a pump, so I know it will last a while.

It has a almost melted butter scent which is nice, but I prefer the smell of the other two product if I'm honest, but I don't actively dislike it.

I use this in two ways. If I am blow drying my hair, which I don't do very often, I mix it in with my Aussie Heat Defense Serum, and put it in the mid-length and ends of my damp hair and blow dry. My favourite way however, is to use it as a finishing tool. I put a tiny amount in the palm of my hands and run it through the mid-length and ends of my hair again, and it makes my hair so soft and silky, I love it.

So a rave review from me, but I really do recommend you give this product a go.

Do you use it? What do you think?

  1. The bottle sure looks inviting. I use coconut oil too and it is thick at low temperatures, try warming it up a bit on double boiler before applying it and you will get a much better result:)

  2. I've tried the Loreal Mythic Oil, that's great too! I could never afford Morrocan Oil so I'm glad there's another good one out there! Want to try this now. xx

    1. I've never tried the Mythic Oil but is meant to be an even close dupe of Morrocan Oil :)

  4. Oh I really want to try this, this is about the 3rd good review I've read. And I agree, Morroccan Oil is a bit expensive xx

  5. I have tried the Percy&Reed oil but that's about it. This sounds like a good product to try because I have read a lot of good things about it.

    I agree about the morroccan oil; I haven't tried it but I do know that if I bought it then the novelty will wear off and i will kick myself because of how much it cost.

    Great review :)

  8. Ooh this sounds good! You could try Tresemme Argan Oil, it's small bottle but only £5 and mine still lasted about six months :) xxxx
