Review: Dr.Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Treatment Serum

These past few years, I had honestly given up on taming and styling my hair. For those of you who don’t know, my mane hair is naturally curly, dry, frizzy and tangle-prone. Cute, right? Even though Malta’s humid weather does not help, I was in dire need to nurse my hair back to health.

Watching multiple YT videos, I was a big fan of hair oils, but never really got around to buying one (I’m lazy like that). Luckily, after being invited to the Dr.Organic launch a couple of months ago, I finally got my hands on their Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Treatment Serum (what a mouthful!).

Firstly, and not necessarily beneficial to my hair, the packaging is gorgeous. The frosted glass gives a fresh and elegant look to the product itself, making it even more appealing! As the name implies, this product is and oil-based serum, with Argan Oil being the most dominant. It also contains ingredients such as Clove Leaf Oil and Cinnamon Leaf Oil which give it its slightly spicy scent. I know this scent might not be everyone’s cup of tea, so do suggest you get a sniff of it before buying it.

The great thing about this Dr.Organic serum is that a little goes a long way – I roughly only use two pumps to work through my ends up to my roots. It is mostly applied to towel-dried, leaving your hair soft and silky. However, it can also be used on dry hair for extra shine. Even though I still struggle with having dry and frizzy hair, this serum really does eliminate most of my frizz, making my hair more manageable, without weighing it down.

Lastly, this serum retails in Malta at €16.87 – a fraction of the price of other serums on the market! Definitely a must have in your hair-care routine!

Event: Dr Organic Malta Launch

Last Wednesday, I was invited to the launch of Dr Organic‘s first blogger event here in Malta. The event took place at the beautiful Villa Bologna in Attard, and together with a little chit-chat with my fellow bloggers, here is what went down!

Dr.Organic Catalogue

Dr Organic, is a multi-award winning brand offering a vast range of bioactive skincare. By the term ‘bioactive’, they pledge to utilise the finest natural and organic raw materials wherever possible. All of their products are made up of organic and bioactive ingredients, with no harsh chemicals such as parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), perfumes or artificial fragrances. Moreover, these products contain no mineral oils such as paraffin and petroleum, aswell as no genetically modified (GM) and animal ingredients (with the exception of honey, beeswax, propolis and royal jelly). Lastly, Dr Organic products do not undergo animal testing and claim to only use necessary preservatives to guarantee the products’ safety and shell life.

What a mouthful huh?! Wait till you see the lines they offer!

In the catalogue they presented us with, they’ve listed down EVERY product the brand currently has. To date, Dr Organic has 13 different lines ranging from Aloe Vera and Tea Tree, to Royal Jelly and Dead Sea Minerals.

In addition to that, each line has an impressive array of products covering skincare, haircare and also oral hygiene. You name it, they’ve got it!

After kicking off the event with drinks and yummy nibbles, our hostess, Teri, delivered a presentation where she briefly went through all the different ranges Dr Organic offers, together with the products’ benefits. We also got to sample some of the products during the presentation itself!

Not only were we lucky enough to attend and view this products first hand, but Dr Organic was kind enough to let us go home with 3 products of OUR CHOICE! Do you have any idea how difficult that is when you want EVERYTHING they have?!

I finally went with these three gorgeous items:

moroccan-argan-oil

Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask – €10.04

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Hydrating Radiance Elixir – €14.41

For starters, how pretty and fresh is the packaging? I could just look that, and it makes me happy, let alone what’s inside! The products will be stocked in pharmacies around Malta and considering they’re 100% natural, they’re quite reasonable in price. Needless to say, I will most probably definitely purchasing more products to add to my Dr Organic collection 🙂

P.S. They also have gift (hint, hint) packages aswell 😉

LookFantastic October Beauty Box

As you may know, lookfantastic has recently launched a monthly subscription box known as their Beauty Box. This month’s is the second Beauty Box they issued – AND is the only beauty subscription box that ships to Malta!

I had actually pre-ordered their September Beauty Box, but never received it until I ordered the October Beauty Box – I then received the two boxes at one go! But since it had been a while since the majority of boxes were delivered, I figured I would simply skip that one and go straight to this month’s Beauty Box.

So, the Beauty Box comes in, well, a box, that looks quite neat and due to the black on white contrast, also sleek.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box

On opening the box,  you are greeted with a warm message “Discover something beautiful #LFBEAUTYBOX“. Moreover, there is also a leaflet with a short description on each product found in the Beauty Box.

These are the products I found in this month’s installment (left to right)

LookFantastic Beauty Box Items

*I could not find the exact product on the site, but most of the KMS California line lookfantastic carries is around €15 – €20 per item.

Keeping in mind that the whole box only costs €19.50, these Beauty Boxes are totally value for money! I know, the products sent are only sample sizes (some of them), and the prices listed may be for 3 times the product, but still – when you think about it, these are items I wouldn’t generally reach for, so I’d rather spend €19.50 to test them out rather than an approximate total of €192!

I haven’t actually tried any of the products yet, as I just started testing out September’s Beauty Box – since they are mostly hair/skin products, it might take me a while.

With that being said, even though there are mostly hair and skin products, I hope that in the future lookfantastic introduce makeup products into their Beauty Boxes. I know that the reason they don’t do this already is probably due to personal preferences (skin tones, skin combinations), but it would be worth a shot.

I will keep you updated on the products I have been loving 🙂

Should I get the November Beauty Box?
