Review*: Oriflame Eleo Smoothening Oil

Thursday, November 05, 2015

Hello ladies, 
today I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Oriflame Eleo Smoothening Oil with all of you. I got it back in August, so after trying it for around two months, I finally think I've made up my mind about it.
Although we're only in the first week of November, I already failed at my 'blog every other day' schedule since I missed it yesterday, but it's fine, I'll just switch up days from today on.

Pozdravljene, 
danes bom z vami delila moje mnenje o Oriflame Eleo Gladilnem olju, ki sem ga v test prejela nekje sredi avgusta. Po dobrih dveh mesecih testiranja menim, da je končno napočil čas, da napišem par besed o moji izkušnji s tem oljem.

Oriflame, Eleo, Smoothening Oil, review
 I have to say that I was very sceptical about this hair oil at first, as I'm with any new hair oil that I try really. I'm just so used to the Orofluido one that I've been using and loving for years.
But when I was reading the promotional informations about this new Eleo hair line from Oriflame, I just knew I had to try something and their Smoothening Oil for rebellious and unruly hair sounded perfect for me. Apart from this oil, there's also the Eleo Protecting Oil (read a review from UniqaPoly), Eleo Hair Mask, Eleo Shampoo and Eleo Conditioner (Taya's review). 

Povedati moram, da sem glede vsakega novega olja za lase izredno skeptična, saj že par let redno uporabljam Orofluido olje, ki se odlično razume z mojimi lasmi. Kljub temu pa mi je ob prebiranju novičk o novi Eleo liniji za lase Gladilno olje vzbudilo veliko zanimanje, zato sem ga enostavno morala preizkusiti. Znotraj Eleo linije lahko najdete še zaščitno olje (lahko si preberete oceno od Polone, UniqaPoly), masko za lase, šampon in balzam (ocena Tatjane oz Taya My little Beauty World).

Oriflame, Eleo, Smoothening Oil, ingredients
 So what are they claiming about it: Eleo's naturally rich oils have a lightweight, non-greasy texture. Just a few precious drops smoothed into dry or wet hair begins to restore hair's natural suppleness, gloss and shine - for more beautiful hair day after day. Eleo Smoothening Oil instantly smooths out unruly frizz. The luxurious fragrant finishing oil infused with natural Argan and Rose Oils, Burdock and Vitamin F nourishes deeply from the inside out to leave your hair smooth, tame, manageable and delightfully fragrant. For all hair types and perfect for frizzy, unruly hair.

Kaj torej Oriflame pravi o tem olju: Eleo razkošna olja za zdrave in sijoče lase imajo lahkotno, nemastno teksturo. Samo nekaj dragocenih kapljic, vtrtih v suhe ali mokre lase jih okrepi in poživi ter jim daje lesk. Eleo gladilno olje v trenutku ukroti tudi najbolj neukrotljive lase. Prepojeno z naravnim arganovim in vrtničnim oljem, repincem in vitaminom F globinsko neguje lase od znotraj navzven, po nanosu pa so gladki, ukročeni, voljni in čudovito odišavljeni. Primeren je za vse tipe las, še posebej za skodrane in neubogljive lase.

First let me say a few words about the packaging. The oil comes packaged in a box that has a lot of gold details, which is always pleasant to the eye. It also has a list of ingredients in the back, a few details about the actual product and how to use it (apply 2-3 drops on dry or damp hair, concentrating on the mid-lengths and ends). The bottle is plastic, but it feels very sturdy and well-made, which makes it perfect for someone who travels a lot. I especially love the fact that it has a pump, which makes everything much easier. 
Now let's talk about the fragrance. When they said that this is a luxurious fragrant oil they weren't kidding. If I was under the impression that the Orofluido oil smells divine, then this is from another world. I'm kinda addicted to the scent of it and I think that it could easily be sold as an actual fragrance. And the best part about that - the scent lingers on my hair for a day or two!
Another thing that surprised me was the texture, it truly is very lightweight, non-greasy and much more runny than the Orofluido one. I find that a little goes a long way with it, so one pump is more than enough for my ends. As you'll be able to see from the photo below, it also has a slight yellow tint to it.

Najprej nekaj besed o samem pakiranju in embalaži. Izdelek je zapakiran v škatli, ki je okrašena z zlatimi detajli, ki so na prvi pogled vedno zelo prijetni. Na tej škatli lahko najdemo tudi seznam sestavin, nekaj informacij o samem izdelku in navodila za uporabo le-tega (nanesite 2-3 kapljice na vlažne lase, skoncentrirajte se na osrednji del in konice las). Sama steklenička olja je sicer plastična, a deluje zelo trdno, kar je še posebej super za vse, ki rade veliko potujete, vsebuje pa tudi pumpico, ki omogoča zelo lahek nanos.
Sam vonj izdelka je neverjeten. Njihova trditev, da gre za luksuzno, čudovito odišavljeno olje je vsekakor na mestu, in če sem bila mnenja, da Orofluido olje diši krasno, je Eleo olje izvenzemeljsko. Vonj me vedno znova popolnoma navduši in omami, menim, da bi z lahkoto bil prenešen v dejanski parfum. Najboljše pa je, da se dan ali dva po nanosu vonj dejansko ohrani na laseh.
Naslednja stvar, ki me je zelo presenetila, je sama tekstura olja. Resnično gre za zelo lahkotno in nemastno olje, ki je tudi veliko bolj tekoče kot Orofluido. Olje ima tudi opazno rumeno barvo. Opazila sem, da je za želen efekt potrebna majhna količina olja, za moje konice je ena pumpica ponavadi že več kot zadosti. 

Oriflame, Eleo, Smoothening Oil
My favourite way to use it is on towel dried hair and I concentrate it to my ends and what's left from my fringe, since I tend to get the most frizzy hair there. I definitely think it's a lovely and nourishing hair oil and my hair seems to like it as well, since it's in a really good condition as my hairdresser said last week. I especially love the fact that it is so lightweight, cause that means that I can use it on dry hair as well without it weighting down or making my hair greasy, yet giving it a bit of extra shine. 
As far as the unruly frizz goes, it definitely helps a bit, but it doesn't make it completely disappear (you can see how my hair looks on the second day, with only this oil used as a ''styling'' product, except from the curling wand).

Sama ga najraje uporabljam na vlažnih laseh, nanesem pa ga na konice mojih las ter na sprednji del ob obrazu, kjer so moji lasje ponavadi najbolj neukrotljivi. Vsekakor menim, da je Eleo gladilno olje dovolj bogato in hranljivo, kljub temu da je njegova tekstura bolj lahkotna. Tudi moji lasje se z njim več kot očitno dobro razumejo, saj so po besedah moje frizerke v zelo dobrem stanju. Ravno sama tekstura (in seveda vonj) mi je pri izdelku najbolj všeč, saj lahko olje uporabim tudi na suhih laseh za nekaj dodatnega leska, brez da bi jih le-ta otežil ali zmastil.
Tudi pri neukrotljivosti in gladkosti las pomaga, vendar popolnoma ne uspe odpraviti ''frizz-a''.

All in all, I have to say that I was definitely impressed by the Eleo Smoothening Oil and I didn't really miss using the Orofluido one in these few months. You get 50 ml of product and it currently retails for 6,99€ (regular price is 13,90€) which is a great price for a good hair oil. I would definitely recommend you to try it out, especially in these colder months when our hair needs a bit more of affection and care.

Eleo gladilno olje me je nedvomno prijetno presenetilo in v teh mesecih uspelo zamenjati meni zelo ljubo Orofluido olje. Za 50 ml izdelka boste trenutno odštele 6,99€ (redna cena je 13,90€), kar je za moje pojme izredno dobra cena za kvalitetno olje. Nakup bi vam definitivno priporočala, še posebej v teh hladnejših mesecih, ko naši lasje potrebujejo malce več pozornosti in negovanja.

Did you try anything from the Oriflame Eleo hair line yet?

  2. Me je zelo zanimal, sploh ker tako opevaš vonj, dokler nisem videla sestavin. Tole je sestavinsko podpovprečno, ni pa zanič. Meni bi verjetno bilo prelahko, morda bi mi bil všeč bolj za krotenje friza :)

    1. Evo, ravno zato rada slikam še sestavine, ker sama o njih nimam pojma in priznam, da se nanje niti ne oziram. Je pa res, da nimam ravno zahtevnih las in mi je največji problem itak občutljivo lasišče. Pri tvojih suhih laseh, bi ti tole verjetno res bilo prelahko, pa tudi pri krotenju friza te verjetno ne bi čisto navdušil :)
