I think it’s save to say, even before my obsession towards beauty oil in general, I already in love with L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil way before I’m joining the skin care craze. I have a severely damaged hair back then, and I have to say that L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil definitely help to made my dry damaged hair to be more shiny, healthier and easier to deal with. Though I don’t really like the lighter “summery beach” version that I bought a couple of years ago from German drugstore, I still like the original one. And I was surprised that my local drugstore recently coming out with the newer version of the oil, which is the L’Oréal Paris Elseve Extraordinary Oil Eclat Imperial High Shine Oil with Precious French Rose Oil as their hero ingredients.
Upon application, the light-weight and non-greasy formula is instantly absorbed on hair, leaving your hair feeling exceptionally soft with supreme smoothness and lustrous shine.
Benefits of the range infused with Precious French Rose Oil:
On the Hair Length: Deeply penetrates into the hair keratin and moisturizes to the core of the hair, enhances shine from within and luxuriously smoothen hair fibers strand by strand, fiber by fiber.

It’s apparent that they imported the Japanese version of this oil to Indonesia. I don’t know if this version originally come from Japan, or not, but since I’m a fan of any Japanese skin care and beauty products, I expect more since Japanese never tend to half-assed their products. Even with the cheapest one, Japanese product always tend to deliver good results! And this product, though it comes with a weebit higher price than the original Extraordinary Oil, I think in terms of overall performance and the scent, definitely better than the original one.
The consistency of the product actually is pretty much similar to the original Extraordinary Oil. It’s thick, yet absorbs quickly to your hair, and leaves your hair to be shiny and healthier. However, the existence of the Precious French Rose Oil really, really does help to escalated the overall experience whenever I use this product. I usually never a fan of rose scent, since I somehow find it too granny-ish; but boy, oh boy, this product really nailed it with the rose scent! It’s just heavenly, not overpowering, and you will have a good smelling hair for the day!
So, is this worth the hype and the price? I think definitely yes! Because first and foremost, it’s pretty affordable for a good hair product. At around $8~$9, this bottle usually lasted me around a year. Definitely a good investment for your hair! It will nourished your hair, especially if you have dry or damaged hair. Plus the rose scent that I’ve been gushing about before! It’s just so good that you have to try it by yourself! Will I repurchase it? Definitely! Maybe I prefer this one to the original one, lol!
