OSCAR BLANDI Instant Glossing Cream5:46:00 AM
I don't know if you've heard but I just want to let you know that Oscar Blandi has spread its wings here in Indonesia. I went to their pre-launching event several months ago and I also did a review on their Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo a while ago which is such a pretty cool and very helpful product.
Currently, the Oscar Blandi representatives were announcing that they have officially launched all Oscar Blandi collections here in Indonesia! They are opening their boutiques in Plaza Senayan and Kota Kasablanka. Although it's not a hair salon but the new stores would also be equipped with both wet and dry styling area in which you can experience Oscar Blandi's products directly at the counter. Pretty awesome.
Do stop by at their counter the next time you're in PS or Kokas (Kota Kasablanka). Meanwhile, I'm here to review another awesome product from Oscar Blandi which is the Oscar Blandi Pronto Gloss Instant Glossing Cream.
According to the info on the packaging, this is a versatile hair-styling product that can deliver weightless shine to all hair types while it simultaneously controls frizz and tame flyaways.
It also comes with Cystine copolymers for a glossy brilliant finish and Keratin protein boost to act as heat protection to protect your hair from the damage of using hair dryers and other hot tools. In short, it's basically everything your hair needs, in one tube.
It's Paraben-free and has multi UV protection that prevents color-depleting effects from the heat & sun. And aside from enhancing sheen and gloss, the formula in this Instant Glossing Cream also prevents cuticle damage. So many functions in one tube!
I love all-in-one products, they are very practical and it take less space in your vanity and travel bag compared to having multi tubes of products of different functions, right?
So basically, this Instant Glossing Cream functions as a gloss to add shine and luster to your hair as well as controlling frizz and flyaways. You can also use this as a heat protectant while giving your hair some UV protection and adding gloss and shines while you're at it. This is actually my first time trying on a glossing cream and I was instantly hooked on this product ever since I first tried it on!
Okay, let's talk about the texture first. The formula is not sticky at all, and it feels very lightweight, and the most important thing is: it didn't weigh my hair down like most other hair products! My hair did not fell flat and lifeless when using this product, so I'd say this product is suitable for those with oily scalp / hair because of the light formula that didn't weigh the hair down and making it fall flat.
After trying this on, I really love the result. I love that this Instant Glossing Serum really gives my hair a noticeable shine and glossy look that makes my hair looks healthy. I also love the way that this product really does tame frizz and gets rid of flyaways which I usually have on my hair.
On below photo you would see the result after I use just a little bit of the product. It really does makes my hair looks glossy and shines healthily in an instant. I took the below photo with flash to show you how it really gives a shiny gloss to my hair ;p
What do you think? It's pretty glossy and shiny, right? It's not too shiny that makes it look artificial or as if you're wearing a ton of hair products, but the shiny gloss looks very natural to me, it looks like your real hair, as if you didn't use any product in it ;p
That's what I love about this product, it doesn't make your hair stiff or looks wet, instead your hair still looks natural. And it took only a few minutes to see the final result. So the name "Instant Glossing Cream" really says it all ;)
Here's a BEFORE and AFTER photo to show you the difference after I used the instant glossing cream so you can see that this product really works!
You can see from the BEFORE photo that my hair was dull and it lacks luster whatsoever. It looks like it needs some hair therapy or something. But AFTER I put on the Instant Glossing Serum, tadaaa... an instant hair lift! My hair becomes glossy and the color is more vibrant, and it also gives out a natural shine all over.
You can see the difference, right? Or tell me if you can't really tell the difference from the photo above, or maybe you can tell from the photo below. Here's another photo to show you the BEFORE and AFTER changes:
I hope you can really see the difference on the photo above. I never actually thought that a little bit of glossing cream can really makes a difference. My hair looks way healthier on the AFTER picture, I never thought that my actual hair color was very dull until after I saw this photo (>__<) so I think I'm gonna use this glossing cream more frequently now to achieve that shiny healthy looking hair.
Anyway, I used the glossing cream right after I'm done with my hair dryer and straightener, but you can also use it before you use hair dryer or any other hair tools. You can also use it as touch-ups during the day if you want ;)
Overall, after trying it on I really like this product and would also recommend it to you especially if your hair is looking dull and lack luster like mine. This also doesn't weigh the hair down and as I've told you above, it also have lots of functions which our hair desperately needs such as UV protection and frizz control. This product would definitely be added to my monthly faves post ;)
So let me know if you have tried any glossing cream before? Or what are your favorite Oscar Blandi products?
Oh, and don't forget to have fun on your weekends! ^___^
