Skin Type: Combination to Oily; Sensitive Skin – No
This review on L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Boosting Oil is long overdue and right now, I am almost done with the oil. Face oils have become so popular that almost every other brand is coming up with a new formulation. I consciously avoided picking up this L’Oreal facial oil for a long time as I was slightly scared that it would break me out. I finally took the risk and here are my thoughts on L’Oreal Paris Extra Ordinary Boosting Oil.
Sensitive, dry and irritated skin inflames in more ways than one. Also with age, skin can become thinner, dehydrated and lose its natural radiance. Looking for the right skin care products which will calm, soothe and nourish the skin can be another cause for irritation. Therefore, L’Oréal Paris Laboratories have specially formulated a refined blend of 3 extraordinary oils – Desert Nut Oil, Geranum Essential Oil and Rosa Canina Fruit Oil to Nourish, Re-plump and Illuminate the skin. Extraordinary Boosting Oil is a replenishing treatment in a luxurious oil to indulge your skin and transform its touch. Skin looks smoother and more radiant, as if renewed. This ultra-delicate essential oil combination is a culmination of anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties. It richly nourishes the skin with moisture and returns it to its healthy glow. Owing to its delicate aromatic scent, a calm and comforting feeling envelops your senses for a moment of true pleasure.
INR 1550/- for 30 ml.
My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Boosting Oil:
The packaging as you can see (in the pictures above) is simple yet attractive. The dropper system of dispensing the product is good, but not really meant for clumsy people. Being 30 ml, it is quite a handy size, but since it’s a glass bottle, extra caution is required if you wish to travel with it. Somehow my product has all details in Chinese (I think so!), so I had to gather all the product details from the internet.
Moving on with the texture of the product, it is thin in consistency and spreads really well on the skin. Just 2-3 drops are more than enough to cover the whole face. It takes about a minute or so to get completely absorbed into the skin, so there is some time in your hand to give your skin a nice massage. It does not feel oily or sticky at all; rather it forms a comfortable layer of moisture on the skin, which calms and hydrates the skin.
Considering my skin type, I was slightly skeptical about using it on my face, fearing clogged pores and break-outs, but thankfully, I did not have any such issues. I love how wonderfully this boosting oil hydrates my skin. I feel it is quite a mild product with the goodness of 3 oils in it. With all the tall claims made by L’Oreal about this boosting oil, I would say “plumping” is the effect which is clearly visible on the skin. I apply this as a bed-time treatment and I wake up with beautifully plump and glowing skin. The only negative I can point out is that the effect stays as long as you use it; you skip one day and your skin is again back to its original condition. Well, that is true with any product, so I cannot really put this product down on that factor. Overall, it is a good product, especially for night; I would not recommend it for the daytime though.
