Birchbox Review - Montibel.lo Gold Oil Essence



How do I begin to tell you how much I love this hair oil? I have no idea. It gives you everything that you could ever want from a product like this - shine, weightlessness, a heavenly scent... Get this baby on your beauty wish list for sure!

I was really intrigued when I got this product in my Birchbox this month - not only because InStyle had picked it as one of their two products featured in this month's box. I wasn't the biggest fan of the Lil' Lip pencil they chose but they've sure got it spot on with this hair oil in my eyes.

I curled my hair and then popped a bit of this through to tame any fly aways and give my waves a sleek and shiny look. As soon as I poured the smallest amount of this onto my hands the smell was heavenly. Oh it just smells like something fantastic that I can't put my finger on. It's sweet and gorgeous and I love it! It did an amazing job at taming the wild hairs too. I ended up with a really sleek do that didn't look remotely greasy at all.

As the day went on, I felt the need to top up on the oil which was a little strange. Generally if you do this with an oily product, you'll end up with hair so greasy that a shower is called for immediately. However this product came across as more of a dry oil to me and therefore adding a little bit more was no issue whatsoever. I only ran the product through the ends of my hair and they instantly look revitalised and smooth once more.

I definitely don't mind topping up with this during the day as it's such a pleasant product to use. However I don't think that this will be required of everyone. I have extremely thick hair and it was having a particularly unruly day. If you have thinner hair, I can imagine that one application would be plenty.

I definitely can't recommend this product enough and will certainly be repurchasing it when I run out.
