I like to treat my tresses with a nourishing hair mask every week or so, usually on a Sunday after I've used a clarifying shampoo. I particularly appreciate the convenience of those which get to work quickly so when I noticed that the mask from Mark Hill's MiracOILicious line promises to leave hair revitalised and feeling smooth, strong & looking shiny in just two minutes, I was intrigued.
On first impressions, I wasn't the biggest fan of the packaging. It's not offensive in terms of appearance but I dislike tubs, finding them to be messy and unhygienic. That said, I found the directions clear and easy to follow.
According to the brand, MiracOILicious contains an exotic mix of 14 of the world's finest essential oils and plant extracts including Moroccan Argan Oil, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Cedarwood, Sage, Sandalwood, Spearmint, Palmarosa, Orange, Patchouli and Clove to name just a few. As such, I expected the mask to have an incredible, indulgent fragrance so I was disappointed to note that it had an intense, sickly sweet scent which I personally hated. This alone would put me off repurchasing.
Mark Hill MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment has a white, pearlised thick cream texture which felt silky and was easy to work through my hair. A little goes a long way meaning that the tub will last a long time, offering good value for money.
Whilst in the shower, I felt that the mask rinsed out relatively easily, however, after I'd dried & styled my hair, it felt as though there was product residue remaining. Whilst my hair felt soft, it wasn't as shiny as I'm accustomed to and my flyaways were less diminished than usual. Having said that, my fine hair wasn't weighed down and I was thankful that the sickly sweet scent of the mask didn't linger and that my hair simply smelt fresh & clean.
At £7.99 for 200ml, Mark Hill MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment is an affordable option, however, in my option there were too many downsides to this product and for that reason, I wouldn't repurchase.
