Why We’re Obsessed With This $6 Hair Oil

If you’re a beauty junkie like we are, then you know there are a ton of beautifying oils out there. Argan, Moringa, Marula, Coconut, Rose Hip, the list is never ending. And frankly it can get a bit overwhelming trying to find an oil that works for you. Not too long ago OGX sent us a few products to try throughout the summer. One of them sort of sat on our editorial shelves for a while, just waiting to be discovered. And discovered it was – all of our beauty girls loved this oil, and each of them has a different type of hair texture (ranging from very curly to wavy-straight and color-treated). Here’s what you need to know about the OGX healing + vitamin E Penetration Oil:

Penetrationg Oil

This oil is designed to help heal up dry, damaged, and brittle damaged hair via an infusion of Vitamin E. Vitamin E has it’s uses, from hair, to skin and nails, it’s a favorite among natural oil fans and with good reason. It’s a relatively inexpensive antioxidant and is meant to have conditioning and moisturizing properties. While you can use the oil solo, we observed that it is a little thicker than some other oil formulations out there, which can weigh down the hair shaft. We recommend mixing this beauty up with your favorite leave-in wash-out conditioner.

Our favorite combo? A quarter-sized amount of this Penetration Oil along with Aussie’s classic 3-minute leave-in conditioner.

As for the ingredients, the formulation is quite simple, keeping in mind that yes the Tocopherol Acetate (E) is a form of vitamin E (in case you were looking specifically for that, like we were). The primary ingredient is a version of silicone (CPS) which works to make your mane feel and look, well, fabulous.

We’re wild about this oil because it’s not just another oil. Not only is it affordable, but it turned one of our lady’s color-treated hair from straw-like to soft and silky, and another’s heat-stressed tresses into shiny and manageable. At, $5-6 a bottle, it’s easy to see why we’re obsessed.

I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but these Lip Crayons all come with their own sharpener – which is great because I always lose my makeup sharpeners, they’re a bit like hairbands and bobby pins in that regard (at least for me).

This collection features some really gorgeous (and essential!) shades. Disco Biscuit is a real creamy bubblegum pink color, it’s one of those colors that you keep in your purse because of its versatility. Toff and Ruby Murray are both in the wine family – dramatic colors that are perfect for fall days and Friday nights. Teddy Boy is a gorgeous sort of slightly dusky rose, and Tea With The Queen is a light nude, which is surprisingly highly pigmented and very opaque. Primrose Hill Picnic and Trout Pout are the brightest of the collection – one being a fun hot pink and the other being a trendy coral.

I’ve swatched them in case you want to see their true color. What I like best about these (besides the colors and quality) is that you can go really subtle and just dab some on your lips for the nicest nuance of color, or you can really swipe it on a few times and get that serious shine and generous pigmentation. They apply smoothly and won’t tug at your lips. Also, I didn’t experience any color bleeding – which is definitely a plus in my book!

Each Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon retails at about $20, you can pick one or all of them up at butterlondon.com.
