Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold Moisturising Shower cream
I have heard so much about this Milk & Honey range from Oriflame that I decided to get this shower cream & here is my take on that.
History of Milk & Honey for Bath during ancient times:
Cleopatra recognized the beauty secrets of honey way back and pampered her skin with her famous milk and honey baths. Thus, she was able to achieve perfectly flawless skin that was highly desired by the opposite sex. This has prompted several women of today to prepare their own honey milk bath. In addition to the beauty enhancement benefits of a honey milk bath, it also has a sensual aspect to it that makes it ideal for lovers. 😉
Queen Elizabeth I of England pampered her skin with the same milk & honey baths.
~ Cleopatra’s Milk Bath Formula ~
Add 4 cups of fresh milk, buttermilk (can be exchanged for dry milk formula, but not recommended) to the bathwater as the tub is filling. Add 4-6 table spoons of honey to the bathwater and stir thorough.
Soak it the tub for as long as it feels pleasant. Carefully massage your skin with a washcloth or loofa to help the ex-foliation process. Rinse your body thoroughly after soaking and make sure you clean the tub.
What does Oriflame Claim about this cream: Your shower becomes an oasis of luxury as you cleanse and condition your skin with this sumptuous shower cream. Luxurious shower cream with moisturisers & organic milk & honey extracts to gently cleanse & leave your skin soft, without feeling dry.
Price: Rs.349 for 200 ml
My Experience: The first thing that caught my eye was the packaging. This shower cream comes in a big cream colored tube which has a print of honeycombs & has a golden color flip cap, looks lovely. The texture of the cream is neither too thick nor too runny; it looks like Sunsilk golden colored shampoo (I don’t remember the exact name). The fragrance of the shower cream is too over-powering; it has this superficial jasmine flower fragrance which might be annoying for some people. Just 3 to 4 peas-sized amount on a shower puff would be enough to produce a good foamy lather. After bath I felt the skin was very dry & didn’t find it supple or soft.
Pros of Oriflame Milk Honey Gold Moisturising Shower Cream
- Comes in a decent cream colored tube with a golden flip cap.
- Doesn’t leave soapy film, rinses out easily.
- Little goes a long way. This tube will last for at least 2 months or may be more.
- Lathers well.
Cons of the Oriflame Milk Honey Gold Moisturising Shower Cream
- I wish this would have come in a see through package, so that I get to know the amount of shower cream left before I run out of it one fine morning.
- Has strong superficial fragrance of jasmine flowers.
- Leaves the skin dry though it gives a squeaky clean feel. Not suitable for dry skin.
- Doesn’t deliver what it claims, doesn’t condition or moisturise my skin.
- The tube is not travel friendly.
- Expensive at the regular price.
Will I repurchase this? No, it doesn’t suit my dry skin.
Will I recommend this? I will not recommend this to people with dry skin; other can give it a try when it’s on discount. Definitely not a must have product for me!
