PACKAGING:The cream is enclosed in a glass jar packaging with a beige colored cap.It is sturdy and quite neat and elegant.However,I wouldn’t call it travel friendly as it is prone to breakage.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS:The cream is thick white colored with slight pink tint that is hardly noticeable.It has a mild licorice fragrance that is pleasant and goes off within seconds of application.Only a small quantity is needed as it is thick in texture but it gets absorbed easily.It doesnt leave any greasy or oily feeling behind.

???????????????????????????????

I started using it and the results were quite prominent as my skin became clearer and even.I have pigmentation around the corners of the mouth which got lightened to a good extent.However,within a week I had to stop using it as it started breaking me out.I had to stop using it.It didn’t suit my oily-combination skip but I think the cream will definitely suit dry/normal skin.

???????????????????????????????

RATING:3/5

RECOMMENDATION:It is a nice cream that does show up results.Sadly,it did not suit me.This is an improved version of the night cream.I have tried the ealrier one as well and had the same issue. 😦

???????????????????????????????

THE CREAM:I simply love the delicate texture of the hand cream.It is very mild,very soft .The consistency is liquidy but it’s not flowy or watery.It applies easily,spreads well and gets absorbed very quickly.The cream contains sesame oil which moisturises and soften hands quite well.It has a very light refreshing fragrance that I adore.However,the moisturising effect is short-lived and it has to be reapplied.All the dryness disappears the moment I apply it but after say 1-2 hours,my hands are again in need of moisture.

MY VIEWS:I love mascara as they complete the eye look.I am sure every girl seconds this!!I have tried many mascaras from Oriflame.This one is the newly launched in The One colllection.The mascara is aimed at providing volume to lashes.I prefer such mascara only.The first thing that you notice when you try this is the ease in application.The formula is so good.It is neither heavy nor too gloopy.The consistency is just right.Also,it doesnt make my lashes hard when it dries.The lashes does get conditioning.

???????????????????????????????

Secondly,the bristles of the wand are placed appropriately and the length of the wand applicator is perfect so that I can apply the mascara on small,inner lashes as well without messing up the entire look.On application,I do see immediate results as my lashes get a good amount of volume(almost 2x).I would call this volumizing as well as lengthening mascara.It separates and coats each lash beautifully.The mascara dries up within 5-10 seconds which is great as I can put a second layer for added volume. I can see my lower lashes getting volume as well as length.You Can see in the before/after pics as well!!
