Oriflame Cherry Mocha Hand Cream Review

Oriflame Cherry & Mocha Scented Hand Cream

Approximately 141 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas. Can you believe this?

Every February across the country, chocolate baskets, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.

Oriflame Cherry Mocha Scented Hand Cream

Oriflame has come with the latest Valetineโ€™s day limited edition :-> ๐Ÿ˜‰ collection! This collection is the Cherry & Mocha range which includes a Cherry and Mocha scented soap bar & Hand cream. I have got the hand cream myself.

Mocha is also used to describe a coffee bean with a chocolate-like taste. Smaller and rounder than most other varieties, these beans are derived from the coffee species Coffea Arabica, which is native to Ethiopia and Yemen. “Mocha coffee” can refer either to the coffee-with-chocolate drink, or simply to coffee brewed with mocha beans, which were originally cultivated in Yemen and exported through the port of Mocha.

Cherry has anti-inflammatory benefits. Cherry oil has excellent moisturization properties, is rich in vitamins A and E, and contains natural antioxidants.

What does Oriflame Claim about this cream: Deliciously scented hand cream to intensively nourish and leave hands feeling seductively soft and smooth to the touch. After all, soft hands are an essential part of Valentineโ€™s Day.

Oriflame cherry mocha hand cream


Price: Rs.169 for 75 ml
My Experience: This cream comes in a pink colored tube. The color of the cream is light pink & the texture is neither too runny nor too thick, it gets easily absorbed within 1-2 minutes of massage!

The cream has a mild artificial mocha kind of fragrance which doesnโ€™t last for long hours. My hands are very dry & need lot of hydration; this cream keeps them hydrated only for a few hours. You feel the urge to keep reapplying after 2-3 hours, so this way you end up using a lot of cream throughout the day. The texture is not sticky, so after applying you could even hold a TV remote control & donโ€™t have to worry about staining it! This cream doesnโ€™t quench my dry skin!

Pros of the Oriflame cherry mocha hand cream

  • The texture of the cream is not greasy, gets easily absorbed.
  • Packaging is simple, has small pink hearts on it. Comes in a screw open lid tube
  • Mild fragrance.
  • Its travel-friendly, can be carried in a bag.

Cons of the Oriflame cherry mocha hand cream

  • Though it claims, it doesnโ€™t provide intense moisturising! Doesnโ€™t keep the skin hydrated for long hours.
  • Will not work for very dry skin especially during winters.
  • Quanity is very less when used for extreme dry skin!

Will I repurchase this? No! Doesnโ€™t provide intense hydration & nourishment.
Will I recommend this? NO if you need deep moisturising effect & YES if you just want to have a mild mocha fragranced cream & donโ€™t mind reapplying it every few hours!

2.5 years back..when I resigned and went home for a four month break…My parents still wish I’d not taken that break…tabhi sab kaand hua!! Mom says when you were away and roaming here and there nothing happened, and you had to cause all this drama after coming back to home only!!!

Me undecided…I like all kinds..but the brown-beige colours that are so popular every once in a while – those look really odd on my fingers..like I don’t have nails and nail beds got tanned ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Nice Review Uzma :).. speaking from my personal experience, the limited edition creams are never that g8t… for dry hands there is a separate set of creams available.. and my personal pick will be the Hand treatment mask.. I just love it :silly: :silly:

Ankita February 25, 2011 at 9:31 am

I saw this one in the month’s catalogue and it looked so tempting by the packaging and the ‘cherry- mocha’ description. Too bad it doesn’t provide enough moisturization. have you tried any other hand cream Uzma?

Reply

Uzma February 25, 2011 at 9:37 am

Good Morning Ankita :yawn: , I have tried Oriflame’s Swedish Spa Night Renewal Hand Cream, there is a review on IMBB :yes:
