Disappointing Products #1 | Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil Leave in Treatment

It's not very often that I find products I'm truly disappointed in but sometimes they are unavoidable.  After the extremely popular MoroccanOil burst onto the beauty scene, it seems like every high street brand jumped on the bandwagon and brought out their own hair oil.  This is not a bad thing, as the original product is quite pricey and I'm always on the look out for alternatives.  Avon brought out their Advance Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil range which included a shampoo, conditioner, mask and of course a hair oil.  I've tried most of the products and found them to be okay but the oil in particular really didn't work for my hair. 

First of all, it's very yellow in colour.  I've been used to oils which have a very slight tint and I didn't want to use a product which may bring out the brassy tones in my hair.  Secondly, it's quite thick in consistency, which is great for very thick, course hair but for my damaged, coloured hair, it was just too much and I felt like I needed to wash my hair after a day.  It definitely reduces the time it takes to dry my hair but it's still quite heavy on my locks.  

At £5.50 it hasn't left me too disappointed about wasting money and I know that my mum likes it, so I will pass my bottle onto her.  If you have thick and/or course hair, I'd recommend this product to you but for colour treated, damaged or fine hair I would go for something lighter.  As for the rest of the range, I found that the shampoo is excellent for washing your make up brushes.  My Sigma F80 has never been so clean since I first purchased it and they also smell nice too! 

Which products have left you disappointed?


  1. oh no how disappoitning,i hate wasting money on products that don't work for me ;(


    1. Me too, but luckily this one didn't break the bank!

  2. Aww, I'm sorry you didn't like this. This sounds very snobish of me, but I personally just don't trust something that is that cheap and makes such promises! haha xx


    1. I'm a bit like that, but I'll always try cheaper products because sometimes I just don't have the money to fork out for the luxurious products! x
