Garnier Fructis Oil-in-cream Review

 I have been AWOL on the blog for more than 2-3 months. I had to get through a fair amount of personal issues, and I can say that I missed blogging so much.
Back to review, Garnier recently launched Garnier Oil-in-cream. It is enriched with 3 oils - Coconut, Almond and olive oil. They also claim to be oil replacement cream. Read on the review to know how it fared on me.

I am using this cream for more than a month. During this duration I skipped conditioner to know does it really makes my hair bouncy, manageable and stronger. So the review will be based on it.

Packaging :- As you can see it comes in ripe mango color packaging. Oil-in-cream comes in plastic  squeeze tube with flip-flop top. The product comes in two sizes 100g (Rs.60) and 200g(Rs.100). 

Fragrance :- Cream has pleasant fruity smell, which isn't overpowering. Fragrance is definitely long lasting it lingers with me for 2-3 days. But if you are thinking of keeping it overnight, it's smell will grew so much that it might give you headache (that's my opinion).

Texture and Consistency :- The oil-in-cream is white in color and is easy to slather evenly. The consistency is neither runny nor thick, it feels like conditioner but doesn't feel icky.

How I used it:

Before wash : I lightly massaged it into my hair and left it for 10-12mins. During that time the smell grew too much to handle and I washed it off. 

After wash : Applied to my hair lengths after shampooing.

As far as leaving it as Overnight mask, I skipped it because it is loaded with so many chemicals and even I can't handle too much smell.

Final thoughts : It doesn't make any difference to my fine normal hair. Neither it nourishes my hair nor made my hair stronger. It's good for nothing for me. I used it to style my hair and it did a ok job. Since 1 week I am using it with my Garnier conditioner still no difference. Garnier conditioners are much better than this oil-in-cream. Definitely smell is long lasting.

Now, the big question. Can it ever replace oil? Definitely NO.

  • Affordable
  • Easily available
  • Pleasant smell
  • Non greasy
  • Mess free
  • Can be used to style hair
  • Doesn't nourishes hair
  • Doesn't makes your hair stronger, shinier and bouncier
  • It's definitely not a hair replacement oil
Price: Rs100 for 200g

Where to buy : Nykaa, Flipkart, Purplle
