• L’Oreal Extraordinary oil shampoo & conditioner product review 2019

    Hello Costco friends and Family, I have some news for you!

    The Costco East & West Fan Blogs have partnered with L’Oreal Paris to help them promote their Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner which has recently launched at Costco Warehouses Canada-wide. This is a paid promotion and all opinions are my own… And my Mother-in-Laws opinion… And my partners opinion… That being said, I would never promote a product that I didn’t sample and believe in. Since this is our first paid review in a long time (and a first time for myself), all the proceeds from this post are being donated to the Canadian Red Cross! So thanks to everyone who takes the time to read this!

    *I will also be running two contests with (5) prizes each at the end of this review! You can enter both contests to double your chances of winning! You can find more contest details at the end of this review*

    L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner Review

    So this was a unique situation to say the least. I’ve never reviewed a shampoo before, but I am certainly always on the hunt for a good shampoo and conditioner.

    I do get dandruff from time to time and have a slightly dry scalp so trying to find a shampoo/conditioner that makes my hair and scalp feel clean but not dry can be a little difficult, no one wants to have greasy or oily hair after all. ( I don’t think?) I’ve certainly used shampoos that would seem to clean my hair but then feel dry immediately after (plus the hair fall is always alarming) At the other end of the spectrum I’ve also used conditioners that feel nourishing but make my hair feel heavy afterwards.

    Enter L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil shampoo & conditioner.

    L'Oreal Extraordinary oils shampoo and conditioner

    The first thing I noticed was the smell, kind of a rich hazelnut scent- and while kind of strong it doesn’t seem too perfume-y or too fake, plus it sticks around for a while without being overpowering (again) just nice and subtle. I’m usually more of a citrus-y kind of person, but I kind of enjoyed the smell.

    L'Oreal Extraordinary oils shampoo

    The shampoo itself doesn’t feel super heavy or oily, it didn’t goop up in my hand like a few others seem to- it seemed pretty fluid. It certainly didn’t take much to work it up into a rich lather, and who doesn’t love that? I know I do, it certainly makes me think the shampoo/soap is doing its job and not being lazy… And no one likes lazy cleaning products. (I’m’ looking at you vacuum)

    O.K. not you kitty Roomba, you are the exception… Ewok, Dexter, are you watching this???

    I also thought that it rinsed away pretty easily without leaving my hair feeling greasy or like it left an oily residue behind- but also didn’t leave it feeling dry or brittle (as mentioned before) which was a nice surprise.

    L'Oreal Extraordinary oils conditioner

    The conditioner was thick-ish and kinda creamy but not heavy feeling, and didn’t feel too oily in my hands. L’Oreal recommends leaving the conditioner in for 1-3 minutes, I think I left it in for a minute and a half-ish (??) before rinsing it out. That step was again pretty easy and it didn’t seem to take much to rinse the product out of my hair (to be fair, I don’t have long thick hair; I’m also a poet and I didn’t know it!)

    (Princess Bride anyone???)

    Both my partner and I enjoyed using both of these products. It seemed to help a bit with split ends, and we both agreed that it made our hair feel “less poofy and/or floofy” which my hair seems to be… Floofy that is. I had the In-laws in town this weekend as well, so I had my Mother-in-law also try the shampoo to see what she thought…

    “I feel like someone had put a creamy marshmallow on my head! After I rinsed and dried it was the first time in months I didn’t lose any hair and my hair felt lighter”… I agree with that, for being an essential oil product my hair still feels pretty light.

    I tried to get Ewok and Dexter on-board for some reviews as well, Ewok however did not want anything to do with it, as he was sleeping and not impressed I woke him up.

    And Dexter… Well the last time he had his “hair washed” was when he got sprayed by a skunk at 11:30 at night 7 or 8 years ago and we washed him down with tomato juice in the kitchen sink. Needless to say he has not wanted to go near the sink or shower since, and I’m less inclined to want to carry him around those things due to the battle wounds I received during that process, and the threat of them is still very real.

     

    Daggers… Cute, but painful daggers…. Like Wolverine daggers, Yikes! Moving on.

    Costco is selling the Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner in a combo pack of (1) 1.18L of Shampoo and (1) 1.18L of Conditioner for $18.99, which is a great price for the volume of shampoo and conditioner you’re getting. This is a seasonal product and will only be in stores for the next 12 weeks!

    So to wrap this all up, I do enjoy both the shampoo and conditioner here, and would absolutely recommend them. They feel nice on my hair without feeling like I’ve overwhelmed my head with heavy, oily products. My scalp feels great as well, less dry and flaky (though not completely flake free, a decent reduction). Overall, a great product and worth a shot to see if it works for you too!
