Look And Feel
Figaro Olive Oil comes in a dark green-colored tin container, which is fairly rectangular in shape. It has a wide opening at the top with a green screw cap lid to keep it covered. Even though the cap is tight enough to prevent spillage or leakage, the overall mechanism is not at all user-friendly. It is really difficult to pour the oil onto the palm without creating a mess as the opening of the bottle is pretty wide. If you be extremely careful while pouring the oil, you can still not avoid the mess around the opening of the bottle. In fact, you need to keep a tissue or paper towel handy in order to wipe off the excess oil around the mouth of the container after each use. In short, the packaging is absolutely not travel-friendly though it appears like quite a classy one. The label around the body of the container contains necessary information about the oil. However, it does not contain any instruction for application or usage. The olive oil itself is a pale or light golden green-colored liquid, which turns light yellow once poured onto the palm. It is slightly thicker in consistency than regular coconut oil but has a very light non-sticky texture, which makes it easily spreadable. It has a nice mild scent, which should not bother even the sensitive noses.
What Does It Claim?
Figaro Olive Oil is an edible-grade olive oil made and packed in Spain. It is the best olive oil prepared from the finest olives grown in the Mediterranean.

What Does It Offer?
While the Figaro Olive oil is mentioned to be an edible-grade olive oil, we will stick only to its skin and hair benefits in this review. It is a pure treat for our skin and hair if used the right way. It is a completely natural product with no harmful chemical compounds in it. Massaging this olive oil every day into the skin makes it soft smooth, supple, and naturally glowing. Being lightweight and non-sticky, it is absorbed into the skin faster. Moreover, it is enriched with fatty acids, which treat dry skin efficiently to give it a healthy and nourished appearance. The natural antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of the oil help in keeping the skin free from breakouts, blemishes, and marks. It also improves the elasticity of the skin and makes it youthful. Apart from using as a facial oil, Figaro olive oil can also be used for taking care of nail cuticles, keeping lips soft, removing makeup, and whole body massage.
Figaro Olive oil is found to be is equally good for our hair. When massaged into the scalp gently, the slightly warmed oil nourishes it from inside, thereby reducing dryness, flakiness, dandruff, etc. to a great extent. Regular usage of this oil strengthens hair follicles and prevents them from falling at a rapid rate. It also deep conditions dry, frizzy, and damaged hair to make them softer, smoother, shinier, and bouncier after each application. The oil is also pretty helpful in repairing split ends. For people with a greasy scalp, a mixture of Figaro olive oil and coconut oil will work better.
However, if you have an acne-prone skin, you might prefer extra virgin olive oil over this refined version to avert aggravation of your breakouts. Also, this is not a hair growth treatment and hence, you cannot expect regrowth of lost hair.
