How was your weekend? Mine was great. Watched “Focus” movie on sunday and loved it. All Will Smith Fans out there go watch it id you haven’t already.
Today I’m here with review of Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion. I personally don’t believe in fairness claims so I purchase these to help me lightening my tan 🙂 So read on to new that it fulfilled my expectations or not 🙂
What Oriflame has to say about Essentials Fairness Body Lotion:
Essentials Fairness Body Lotion with UV Filters & Vitamin E ( Product code 30810) Moisturizes and nourishes the skin with UV filters to help protect the skin from harmful rays and help prevent premature darkeing.
Price & Quantity:
199/- for 200ml (now the price is increased to 249/- INR but discounts are available on various sites. check it out on ebay here).
Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion comes in a simplistic white oval shade flat bottle with pink screw open lid which is flip-open as well 🙂 cap shuts sturdily and is leak-proof. All the ingredients and application directions are mentioned at the back of the bottle. Fuss free packaging. Though i find 200ml bottles are generally not travel friendly so i transfer it into smaller bottle while traveling. I like the packaging.
Consistency of the Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion is on runnier side and perfect for summers and monsoons. You can look in the swatches that it absorbs in skin really well without leaving any greasiness behind.
I have normal skin (but my facial skin is combination) when it comes to body lotions, i go with the weather. In summers and monsoons my skin need light body lotions so i prefer the one with slightly runnier consistency. Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion gets absorbed into skin quickly and does not give heavy feeling at all. Light on skin and keeps myt skin hydrated for all day. Though in gym when I tend sweat a lot, it gives slightly slippery feeling which makes me wonder that does it actually get absorbed into skin or just dries out on skin 😐
It has UV filters but SPF is not mentioned so extra sunscreen is a must. It does not help with the lightening of tan that much neither any whitening effect/ just a healthy glow to skin.
What I like about Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion:
- light body lotion for oily/combination skin girls.
- Keeps normal skin hydrated all day in summers.
What I don’t like about Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion:
- does not do any sort of skin lightening or whitening.
- gives slippery feeling if comes in contact with water or sweat.
- Bulky to travel with.
Final Verdict: 2.5/5
It does nothing special to skin and just an average body lotion. Oily/combination skinned ladies will love it due to light-weightness but dry skinned beauties might not find it very moisturizing. Claims are not true, Most of the whitening products helps reducing your tan causing brighteing but this does not even does that. Not a repurchase for me, I like Nivea/vaseline body lotions better than this one.
So Ladies this is my verdict on Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion. Your opinion might be different than mine. Have you used Oriflame Essentials Fairness Body Lotion? How you find it?
