Body and Hair Routine: Oils Tested

I’ve Still Remained Faithful To Vegetable Oils This Spring!

I (organic) like vegetable oils: easy to use, effective and multi tasks on dry skin and very dry hair. My “must have” for almost a year is the organic olive oil I add to all my beauty products: moisturizing creams, nourishing balms and of course other oils.

Here are my latest favorites, two oils and a biphasic treatment that I currently use:

1. The Delicate Dry Oil Prodigieuse of  Nuxe

Very complete, this dry oil contains seven vegetable oils of natural origin (mineral oil free and silicone free): Tsubaki oil (Japanese camellia, antioxidant), sweet almond (softening), camellia (moisturizing) , bourrache (anti-wrinkle), nutty (soothing), macadamia (nourishing) and argan (restorative). I apply it essentially on the body and on hair as a finish touch, to give them shine and an irresistible perfume (with orange blossom, magnolia and vanilla). As always with Nuxe products, the texture and the scent are a real pleasure!

2. The Aurora Botanica Essence d’éclat Hair Oil Mist of Kérastase 

It is not an oil, but a two-phase care for the hair, based on Somoa islands coconut oil (travel a little!), Argan oil and Damascus rose water. Just like the Dry Oil Prodigieuse of Nuxe, the Aurora Botanica Essence d’éclat Hair Oil Mist includes 98% of ingredients of natural origin (silicone free, sulphate free and paraben free). I use this oil mist as a moisturizer on my curly hair, to soften and avoid breakage. Then I add a little shea butter (to seal the hydration) before styling.

3. The powerful organic Castor Oil of Physalis

Originally from Africa, this plant has soothing and moisturizing virtues on the skin and the hair. Castor oil is known to activate hair growth. I admit the very viscous texture may be unattractive, but the effects are great! I mix the Physalis castor oil  with organic olive oil and sometimes with also shea butter for the before / after shampoo that I leave all night before rinsing.
