Garnier Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother Oat Shampoo, Conditioner & Cream Body Wash

Garnier's Ultimate Blends (Ultra Doux) shampoos have truly been growing on me in the past years. After dealing with oily hair issues for absolutely ages I finally found a range of shampoos that are a great fit for my thin, greasy, blonde hair. The Delicate Soother Oat line is a fairly new addition of the brand and immediately caught my attention in the drugstore. It's especially designed for people with fragile hair and a sensitive scalp. It's suitable for every day use and is infused with oat milk and rice cream for healthy, nourished and protected hair. The formula is calming for the skin and paraben free. I found the matching body wash as well, so here's a complete review of the range! 

I've never had great experiences using hair care products for a greasy scalp. The products would always be extremely harsh and make my hair feel like straw. Most of them also caused my scalp to get oilier faster and that definitely was not a great look. When I started using baby shampoos from Garnier about a year ago, my hair suddenly got some volume, manageability and density. Excited about the results I started trying other options from the brand.

I love everything about the soother oat shampoo, the scent is subtle and floral and the formula is very delicate. It doesn't strip the hair and leaves it soft and shiny. I like to alternate it with my other oil proof shampoos when I am home and then exclusively use this one when I'm traveling as it is perfect for every day use. The conditioner I also like, a little bit goes a long way. My split ends were nowhere to be seen even just after one single use and the product makes my hair super easy to detangle and style when it's dry. I was surprised the conditioner didn't make my scalp oily, even though I only use conditioner on the ends of my hair, products like these often seem to make my scalp greasy either way. The scent of the conditioner is similar the scent of the shampoo, but I've noticed a little hint of honey was added and I like it. The cream body wash is my least favorite of the three. It smells really perfumy, which is something I don't expect from a product that states it's for dry and sensitive skin. The fragrance has the sixth place on the ingredient list, that means they've not been moderate with it. I think a lot of people will like this product because the smell somehow makes me picture a woman going to work, however fragrance is irritating to the skin so I doubt that I will be using this frequently.

  1. That is horrible someone was stealing your hard work! I haven't heard of this brand, I will check if we have it in my country. I have been experimenting with the Aveeno brand recently which is very similar to your brand, and I love how soft my skin and hair have been. Because of my hypothyroidism my hair is thin and fragile, but still oily. My skin is combination of face still being a combo of oil t-zone, but my legs and arms are very dry now. Growing old really does a number on the body! LOL. But I'm greatful for every day I awaken.

    1. Yes, or not redirecting my content back to my site :) I don't appreciate that. I'm familiar with the Aveeno brand but I've never tried any of their products. I'm not sure if the Ultimate Blends range is sold in the US, I'll have to check :D Xxx
