Review: Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil

Hello beauties,

I was recently gifted the new Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil* at the recent Sephora Showcase. Anything Ouai has me intrigued and since I hadn’t heard much about this product I wanted to try it and tell you all about it! I should also mention its currently a best seller at Sephora Australia, and Ouai has just released a larger size since there was a demand for it.

Overall Thoughts:

  • Retails for $50 AUD or $32 USD
  • It’s a hair and body oil with a signature blend of rose, bergamot, lychee and white musk. Personally, I didn’t really notice the scent at all. I even asked a friend to smell it and she didn’t notice any scent at all
  • While on the website it states you can use this on your hair to repair damage, I was actually advised it’s not the best at repairing damage but provides more of a gloss/sheen to your hair
  • I tend to apply one to two drops into the palms of my hands before applying it onto my dry hair
  • For my hair I find it creates a beautiful sheen. I feel if I were to apply any more drops my hair could easily look oily…
  • In the below photo I’ve applied about 2 drops into my hair. I think it provides a gorgeous sheen but as you can see it hasn’t done anything to repair the damage from dying my hair
  • As a body oil, it’s a dry oil so it’s easy to blend into the skin and doesn’t leave you feeling oily
  • It absorbs into the skin really quickly, provides some hydration but not as much as I was expecting

I think this would be a great body oily for warmer weather as it provides some hydration, doesn’t leave you feeling oily and provides a gorgeous sheen. In terms of it as a hair oil, I like but don’t love it. It provides enough shine without making my hair oily, however doesn’t repair damage. As you can see I didn’t love this product, I feel it’s more of a superficial product as opposed to a skincare/ hair care product that will provide hydration and repair damage. I must be the only person that doesn’t like it as its a best seller, so clearly there’s plenty of people loving it…

  1. It’s always disappointing when something doesn’t quite live up to the hype isn’t it? I felt the same way about Nuxe’s dry oil. Every woman & her French bulldog loves it, but for me it didn’t cut the mustard in terms of hydration for my body & hair. It left my hair feeling limp & my skin dry. I think it all depends on your body chemistry & (I guess) how easily pleased you are with a product.

  2. Oils can be a very personal choice. I agree what works for someone may not work for everyone else. This sounds interesting for a night out when you want your hair to look sleek and shiny like the stars, but for me, I need something to repair damage.

  3. It sure does look pretty Rachel! I’m not so keen on oils for my hair (I have enough trouble with an oily scalp) and prefer a spray to add gloss. Still it must suit lots of gals if it’s that popular, but how odd that the scent is barely there… xxx
