Goji Berry- also known as Wolfberry is claimed to increase the longivity of a person if consumed regularly. It contains Vitamin A that gives it the anti-ageing benefit. Hence its claimed as the fountain of youth. It is also bestowed with anti-oxidant properties.


Hazelnut- also known as Cob Nut or Filber Nut is a rich source of Oleic Acid, Vitamin E and anti-oxidants. Apart from having anti-ageing properties, it is an excellent toner/astringent, moisturizer, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and protects against sun damage.

My Opinion: - Most Oriflame products have been hits with me. I am using their Aloe Face Wash and Aloe Toner for years now, so this time I thought why not try a cleanser. Pure Nature Organic Hazelnut & Goji Berry Protecting 2-in-1 Cleanser was on sale and I ordered one immediately. Upon receiving it, I was shocked when I opened the lid, it smelt like some rotten citrus fruit. Aarghhh. Coming to the packaging, it a simple pale pink tall plastic bottle with a small screw-on lid in white. Looks pretty but its nothing special, just okay-ish I think.

           This pale pink cleanser is a little viscous than water, it’s that runny. It’s a watery cleanser and not even creamy. It can be called thick pink water :P  I pour some cleanser on the palm of my hand and gently massage it into my face & neck. Then I wait for a few minutes before gently cleaning off with a cotton pad. This cleanser cannot clean off heavy makeup, especially, eye liner/ eye pencil, mascara, waterproof foundation etc. but it does clean off the daily skin care products I use on my face- moisturiser, sunscreen, tinted-moisturiser, lip-gloss, lipstick etc.  I finally wash off with a mild face wash and my face is clean and looks fresh, and then I apply my night cream. I usually need to apply a cleansing lotion at nights only.

           This cleanser can be just washed off with plain water and it does not leave behind any greasy residue. As claimed by the company, I don’t need to use a toner anymore after using this cleanser. This cleanser does its job well of cleaning off light makeup/daily skin care products from my face. It never made me break out and nor did it aggravate my acne-prone skin. This cleanser contains hazelnut & goji berry which are excellent for skin. It cannot be used on dry skin as it is so watery, I think it is best suited for girls/ladies with oily skin who use minimum makeup. The best thing is that this cleanser does not contain Parabens.

Pros: -

* Never broke me out

* It was gentle on my acne

* I don’t need to use a toner, the 2-in-1 claim of the company is true

* It cleans off properly (light makeup/skin care product)

* Mild cleanser, suitable for sensitive skin

* Light-weight cleanser, suitable for oily skin

Cons: -

* Too pricey for a mediocre cleanser which does nothing for heavy makeup users

* No idea why Oriflame chose to call it “Protecting”

* Smells yuck…. like rotten citrus fruits

* Does not cleanse heavy makeup, well it does not claim either

* The claim that this cleanser is specially for dry skin, seems false as its too watery and might dry up the skin even more

            I rate this Oriflame Pure Nature Organic Hazelnut & Goji Berry Protecting 2-in-1 Cleanser 3.5 out of 5. Right now I am trying to finish it off but even after using for 3+ months; a third of the cleanser still remains. I am a regular makeup using and I use this cleanser only on days when I wear minimum makeup so it’s taking time to finish off. It’s not a heavy duty cleanser so girls think well before spending your hard earned cash.
