Garnier Ultimate Blends The Marvellous Glow Oil Review


Garnier's new Ultimate Blends haircare range has been making its way through the Blogosphere recently. I actually picked up The marvellous glow oil before reading any reviews, after being on the hunt for a heat protection spray with argan oil. I now totally understand why everyone's been raving about Ultimate Blends!

The marvellous glow oil is part of the 'The Marvellous Transformer' mini-collection in the Ultimate Blends range, which is targeted towards dry and dull hair. It contains argan and camellia oils, and claims to 'nourish, protect (up to 230 degrees) and perfect'. It also claims to be suitable for all hair types. Obviously I'm not able to defend this claim, but personally I've really seen an improvement in the overall condition of my hair. It feels smooth and soft (as well as non-greasy) all the way down the length of my hair. My hair also looks healthier and shinier. 

To use the marvellous glow oil I pump about two or three pumps (about the size of a 5 pence coin) into my hand and then distribute evenly between both palms. I then apply to the bottom three quarters of my hair (avoiding the roots), starting at the ends and then working my way up. This means that the application is concentrated at the ends where it's most needed to prevent split ends, and it prevents an overload of products near the scalp.

Overall I'm really happy with the benefits of this hair oil. I expect I'll continue to use it until I run out, and am now eyeing up the rest of the Ultimate Blends range! The marvellous glow oil can be purchased from Boots or Superdrug. It's currently being sold at £6.66 at both stores (RRP £9.99).


Have you tried any of the Ultimate Blends products yet?

  1. I think it's quite difficult finding a budget hair oil that's not too heavy or too oily, I always seem to find something wrong with them, but I might give this a go :o) Xx

  8. I'm pretty excited to try this oil out for myself! I've been using one from another brand for awhile now but it's coconut scented (which I oddly dislike, haha) so I've been trying to find an affordable alternative. Lovely review :)

    1. I'm not really sure how to describe the scent of this one. Lovely, though. And nothing like coconut! I hope you like it if you try it :) x
