Eureka Moment once again and this time, I'm sharing an inexpensive find! Once in awhile I will be posting more Eureka Moments on splurge vs. save! I mean, at times, it feels nice to splurge just to reward ourselves but if you look hard enough, and with some luck on hand, we may find an inexpensive alternative that works just as fine as the pricey sister!
Are you ready?
Some of you may have guessed the brand base from the bottle but just in case you can't seem to put your finger to it, why don't you just read more and see what's cooking....oil? *lol*
For the Spend Portion, it's the L'Oreal Mythic Oil!
L'Oreal Mythic Oil
Retail Price: Php995.00 (approx $22.60)
I do not own the full sized bottle but I'm lucky enough to have a good amount of sample that lasts me 2 weeks of usage! No joke, this tiny sample sent to me by my blogger friend can seriously last even longer than 2 weeks! At first use, I am totally in love with the scent, the texture and feel of the product against my super dry hair and how lightweight it felt!
No matter how much product I apply (5 tiny drops) for my medium length hair, the frizziness indeed lessened and hair feels more manageable until next hair wash!
If I may compare this to another brand aside from the inexpensive version I'll be mentioning later on, this product is also similar to my favorite CHI Silk Infusion but the L'Oreal Mythic Oil is more liquid in texture while CHI is more on the "heavier" side. I won't be discussing much about CHI as I already reviewed the product HERE. If you have CHI Silk Infusion in your country, please try it as I love that product too! (Unfortunately, it is locally unavailable!)
So back to the SAVER version of this wonderful L'Oreal Mythic Oil, I rummaged through my "hair care stocks" and found this....
Dove Nourishing Oil Care
Retail Price: Php239.00 (approx $5.40)
Housed in a clear bottle, the "look" is similar to L'Oreal Mythic Oil but are they even similar in terms of feel, texture and is it as good as the L'Oreal one?
Comes with pump
Dove Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-Oil Serum is a tad bit thicker in texture but same as the Mythic Oil, it is non-greasy and applies heavenly on hair as hair feels immediately soft, tangle-free. The wonderful smell, if I may have to mention, is an added plus! But the best PRO of all? The price!
Definitely a Eureka Moment for you and me!
