Oriflame Time Reversing Instant Illuminating Serum Review

Oriflame Time Reversing Instant Illuminating Serum Review

Oriflame’s serums are never disappointing. Somehow, I find “serum” a very glamorous word. Whether it’s hair serum or face serum, they have concentrated form of nutrients and other factors beneficial to either hair or face respectively. I was keeping a watch on this particular range (Time Reversing even though it is for women in their 50s :)) for a long time, especially the serum.


All of my reactions towards various situations and circumstances in life have one common factor, “twitching of forehead.” As a result of this stretching and releasing of skin in the forehead area because of twitching, I think I will soon develop frown lines there. Twitching my forehead is a habit which I involuntarily do, so I am unable to control it. So, the best thing for me is to apply serum on that particular area to prevent any frown lines from developing. This serum came in flyer this month, so I bought it for Rs. 655, original price is Rs. 1190.


oriflame serum

Instantly illuminates, smoothens, tightens and refreshes mature skin. Helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and makes existing wrinkles less visible. Enriched with gold complexion enhancer. Use alone or before Time Reversing Restoring Day or Night

PRICE: Rs. 1190 is the original price, I got it for Rs. 655.


I bought this serum as a precautionary measure (for my forehead region) and since being a kind-hearted soul (cough…cough), I thought I would intermittently allow my mom to use it.

oriflame serum

The serum comes in a gold-colored opaque glass bottle with a press cap, which when turned to the right gets unlocked and then if you press it, a clear runny fluid saturated with lots of gold particles (really!!!….gold 1 gm = 2123 rupees currently) comes out. An arrow is marked on the cap to guide you to lock (by turning the cap to the left) and to unlock (by turning the cap to the right). It’s a small 30 mL bottle, which I suspect would break if you are not careful with it.

Initially, I used this serum at night in the frown-prone region of my forehead. In the morning, I could see a well-toned forehead and visible tightening after continuously applying it for one week. After seeing positive results in the forehead region, I got a little greedy, I went ahead and applied it all over the face and kept it overnight. The next day, I had zits all over my face except my forehead. It was then that I realized what a great mistake I had made, this serum is meant for people in their 50s, whose skin might be a lot mature and drier. For me, personally, I have oily acne-prone skin, which reacts badly to heavy-duty moisturizers. The only dry or say mature region on my face is my forehead and I had used the serum there sparingly. So, it worked that way. Now, I have learned from my folly, I am back to using the serum “only on my forehead area” and I am quite happy with the results. This way, the serum is going to last me for a really long time.

• Brings visible and noticeable changes in skin after using it religiously.
• Keeps the skin hydrated and well moisturized.
• Tones and tightens skin.
• Pores appear to be a little reduced.
• Claims to have real “gold” particles, from the ingredients list, I had no idea where (Au or gold) was.
• Contains a lot of organic ingredients like Brown Algae, Calluna Vulgaris, Zizyphus Jujuba, Vitis Vinifera, Cucumis Sativus, etc.

• Price, Price, Price. Even in flyer, it came for Rs. 655…..sigh!!!!
• Will cause severe breakouts in oily skinned people like me (thank God for little mercies, my forehead is oil-free).

IMBB STAR RATING: 3.5/5….-1.5 for breaking me out(I have twitched my forehead again …..oops).

WILL I BUY THIS AGAIN: Yes, but since I am using this only for my forehead and that too a little bit, I am guessing it will last me a really long time.
