Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil for Hair, Body, and yes, for your face too! What?! True story! This multitasking joy can be used on dry hair and dry skin!
Does it really work?
Ok, no offense but combo and oily skin need not apply if you are plotting and planning to purchase this for your face! Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil is a new fine mist dry oil that can be used on your hair, body, and your face however, I would recommend it for those with drier skin if you plan on using on your face. It is however, perfectly great on your legs, arms, and hair if you have combo/oily skin!
This comes in a 5oz bottle and has a fresh, floral-like scent. I find the scent pleasant but if you’re sensitive it could prove a bit much especially if you’re using it on your face. I also feel like that fragrance could lend a helping hand to break outs so beware.
I don’t love dry oil mists or sprays in all honesty. They make me feel slippery or yeah, a little greasy. Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil used on my legs, arms, or body does indeed have that greasy, slick feel and I’m not really comfortable with it. It does hydrate my drier skin especially my legs and it gives them this rather slick glossy look which could be potentially awesome for some people. However, me, personally, well I don’t really love the look. It’s all a matter of your preference. I’d probably prefer using it in the night prior to bed when I know I can benefit from the moisture but can easily wash it off come morning.
This contains a host of great ingredients like almond oil, shea butter, and avocado oil just to name a few so there are definitely some great moisturizing benefits to be had here.
I have drier, super long, wavy hair with some frizz and I didn’t really like it in my hair either. It gave me a little bit of a greasy bedhead look…mmm not good. Again, it’ll vary from hair type to hair type I’m sure.
Finally, the most exciting part for me, was the fact you could use on your face. I’m not sure how I feel about something that I’m misting in my hair and on my body that can be used on my face. Sounds weird but still cool. Garnier suggests misting onto hands and pressing the oil onto your face using your hands. I’d avoid misting directly on your face as it is an oil and could get into your eyes and cause major cloudy vision so do not do that. Mist it onto the palms of your hands and press it directly onto your skin. It feels quite hydrating on skin but again the fragrance worries me as it might cause break outs on a far more sensitive skin type than my own. I used it for a few weeks as a nightly treatment and I didn’t chance going out of the house with it during the day as it leaves me quite shiny looking. It feels very nice and quite hydrating but didn’t technically treat my drier areas! After I rinse off the product in the morning my patchy, drier areas were still very much there. I couldn’t help but think of all the other oils I already own, use, and like such as Josie’s Argan Oil and felt like those products did a far superior job treating dry areas where as this was only a temporary hydrating effect. It did however. effectively treat drier areas on my body like my knees showed improvement after using this.
All in all it seems like a nifty little product to have on hand and I imagine it’ll produce different results for a variety of different skin and hair types. I picture some folks adoring it where as others won’t like it. I was in the middle myself. I thought the idea interesting but the actual product a little uneventful since it didn’t work for me.
I would recommend trying it for yourself! You might just like it.
