Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray Review

Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray
Claims: Protects the hair from UV rays and free radicals. Provides hair with an instant shine."
RRP: AUD35.95
Packaging: 4.5 out of 5 
Review: To me, the brand Moroccanoil is synonymous with "hype". There was a lot of hype surrounding their Treatment hair oil a couple of years back. I remember lusting after it and after nearly a year, I finally got my hands on a 25mL bottle, thanks to my boyfriend, R. It lived up to its hype and I'm happy with it but it quite expensive.

I was lucky enough to receive the Glimmer Shine Spray to trial. I had high hopes for this product as well. I must say that it hasn't disappointed me at all. It's really easy to use; less messy than the Treatment hair oil, whereby one would have to work it through one's hair with one's hands. With this product, all you have to do is spritz it onto your hair and leave it be. You advised to not touch your hair for a few minutes, which I am fine with. It means my hands won't get oily and I don't have to rushed to the sink to wash them

This product contains Argan oil so you can expect the scent to come with it. It's neither pleasant nor unpleasant. What I do like about Argan oil is that it makes my hair soft and smooth. I also noticed that the product makes my hair shiny. So on days when I plan on using this product, I skip my Dove Therapy Oil, which is part of my haircare routine. Another big reason, I gravitate towards this product is that it protects the hair from UV damage. Although I cannot see the difference/results yet, I believe that it the long run, it will benefit my hair

I love that this product comes in a glass bottle. I hate oil products that come in plastic bottles. For some reason, plastic bottles just ooze out oil the moment you crack the seal and start using them. Sure, glass bottles are heavier compared to plastic bottles but really, they aren't heavy. The only reason I rate this product 4.5 for packaging is the look of the plastic cap and plastic + aluminum spray nozzle. They are both functional but in terms of aesthetics, it really let the product as a whole down. The glass bottle looks so luxurious but when my eyes landed on the plastic/aluminum top, they just went "ugh". The colour isn't the most attractive and I recently noticed a tiny dent on it (even though I have never dropped it or knocked it against anything)

In terms of pricing, one might think $35.95 is a lot of money to be paying for a hair product. Hey, I can name more expensive hair products than this one. In my opinion it is very reasonable, considering it is a 100mL bottle. I predict that this bottle will last me a very long time since only a couple of spritzes is sufficient each time. I think that since the Glimmer Shine Spray is such a multi-tasker, it's a good product to invest in. This is becoming a hair product staple for me so I'll be repurchasing when this bottle runs out!
