My Experience With Oriflame Purifying Face Cream
Now, to begin with, this facial cream is supposed to be used for hydration. It was a part of the whole skin care kit for oily skin. The cream comes in a small tub which is very cute and convenient to use. There is not really much to the packaging because it is quite normal but in a good way. You can carry the tub anywhere you like but…I mean, why would you carry it? It is not a regular moisturizer.
Which reminds me: no it is not a regular moisturizer! This is an oil-based cream and I can say that for sure. This sort of baffles me because this facial hydrating cream is meant for oily skin.
The color of the face cream is a light green. Like, you will get the word TREE from its slightly green tinted color. Its fragrance is actually quite strong and medicinal but yes it does smell like tea tree oil. I have never smelt rosemary so I don’t know….it sort of hints at some mysterious which stuff (just kidding, witches are awesome!)
Let’s come to the actual performance. Like I said, the cream is oil based. To use it, you have to apply it to your face and massage it until it gets absorbed. This will take around 10-15 minutes of constant massaging and then the cream sort of seeps into the skin and does make my skin look healthy and plump. It leaves the skin quite hydrated. I would compare its effect to a cold cream.
It did not clog my pores but I feel like it might not be suitable for sensitive skin which breaks out easily because this cream contains lots of oil.
After hydrating the face, you are supposed to wipe it off with a wet towel or a wet tissue. So It definitely leaves the skin looking supple and fresh.
However, I did not see any long-lasting results. Like, I would use it because I bought it and it is not giving me any pimples but otherwise, there is nothing really it does.
One interesting way I use it is for removing makeup. Simply rub a small amount all over your face and take a cotton ball and wipe away all the makeup. This way it works the best!

I used the face wash from this range that works well
Yep! The face wash is good
The tea tree face wash, the soap are great but this cream is just mediocre. I have used it too. Apart from moisture, gives nothing. Doesn’t help with acne or acne spots. Great review varnika
The images and the prop used are really beautiful. Loved your review !
Thanks, how sweet!
