I popped into Superdrug to get a replacement and it was £7, I then saw this little beauty for £3.50 and so thought it was worth a try.
I need to mention the obvious here, which is why do I not use Moroccan Oil? It is very simple, the price is ridiculous and the main ingredients in it are just silicones, the same as the main ingredient in Frizz Ease and these 2 little dupes. I imagine the Argan oil helps, but I doubt it can be that effective at such small concentrations. I may be wrong but I doubt it. See this post on the hype around Moroccan Oil by a beauty product developer. Also see ingredient list at the bottom for proof.
Packaging- I like the size and the design but not the lack of pump. I must say that it actually comes out without getting all over the cap, but still I would prefer a pump.
Smell - gorgeous, really fresh and pretty.
Amount - 100ml compared to Tres Semme 75ml, bonus! Considering Moroccan Oil cost 10 times the price for the same amount this is a serious bargain.

Does it work?
Yes, yes and more yes! This is even better than the Tres Semme, I thinks the 20 or so, Boots reviews giving it 5 stars speak for themselves. I applied this as usual after washing and brushed it through with a paddle brush before bed. I don't use a dryer on my hair unless it is a special occasion so I just let it dry over night. When I woke up my hair felt really soft and healthy, it even seemed to dry quicker whilst I watched Hannibal in bed.

Would I buy it again?
Word of caution regarding silicone use - You have to be careful using silicones in your hair to avoid build up, which is why I use Tres Semme Deep Cleansing shampoo once a month or so to strip (I use that word, as it is exactly what this does) my hair of all products build up. Don't expect beautifully silky hair after using this, but expect very light flyaway hair with no build up on it.
