The product

L’Oréal Paris Botanicals is a new hair care line consisting of four different ranges that each assist with a particular hair concern. The Geranium collection boosts radiance and protects coloured hair, the Coriander range strengthens, the Camelina formula smooths and addresses frizzy hair, and the Safflower products nourish dry hair.

The L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Fresh Care Coriander Strength Source range consists of a Shampoo, Conditioning Balm, Masque and Strength Potion.

The L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Fresh Care Camelina Smooth Ritual range consists of a Shampoo, Conditioning Balm, Masque and Disciplining Cream.

The L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Fresh Care Safflower Rich Infusion range consists of a Shampoo, Conditioning Balm, Masque and Nourishing Ointment.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the L’Oréal Paris Botanicals range in Geranium, Coriander, Camelina and Safflower to a panel of women aged 25 to 45 who are looking for high-efficacy products that are eco-responsible.

The lowdown

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Geranium range:

How it made their hair look: Many Review Crew® members loved how all the products boosted radiance and made their hair colour more vibrant and shiny.

The scent of the range: Reviewers also commented that the Geranium scent was amazing and luxurious, which made them enjoy using the products even more.

This may not be for you if: You use more conditioner than shampoo, as the size of the conditioner is much smaller than the shampoo.

The verdict:

It not only smells nice but it makes hair styling so easy that I am totally sold. I am definitely buying 100 bottles in future for myself as it so budget friendly compare to other brands on market. Thanks L'Oréal.

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Camelina range:

How it made their hair feel: Our Review Crew® panel loved that the products left their hair softer and more manageable.

How it was great for all hair types: Members with all hair types, from straight to curly, loved using these products.

Good to know: Go easy on the Discipline Cream, as our reviewers noted that a little goes a long way.

The verdict:

The first time I used it I thought the scent was quite pleasant but was worried it was a tad overpowering. I didn’t need to worry, because the scent is more subtle after a short time and hair smells lovely afterwards. I had comments on the lovely scent, and once my daughters smelt it they begged me to use it in their hair.

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Safflower range:

How it softened hair: Members across the board loved how the Shampoo, Conditioning Balm, Masque and Nourishing Ointment made their hair much softer and manageable when combing.

How it tamed fly-aways: Reviewers also found that the Safflower range kept their fly-aways at bay, especially the Nourishing Ointment, which can be used on wet or dry hair.

Good to know: Some members found that the Shampoo and Conditioning Balm took a little longer to wash out of their hair than other products they’ve tried in the past.

The verdict:

The ingredients are impressive, the price and performance totally surprised me and the results are amazing. This range is going to be in high use in my hair care regimen.

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Coriander range:

How it strengthened hair: Reviewers noticed that their hair was strengthened and they experienced less breakage in the shower and from brushing after using the products.

The consistency of the products: Members also loved that the products were very lightweight for a strengthening range, especially the masque.

This may not be for you if: You prefer after-care products with a heavier consistency, as a few reviewers thought that the Strength Potion was too watery for their liking.

The verdict:

I think I've found my new holy grail hair care range! I have been using the entire range for a fortnight now, and my hair has never looked nor felt better. After two weeks, my bleached hair has definitely improved in condition - it is stronger, shinier and softer, with less breakage.
