My Opinion :- After 8 months of reviewing a Garnier Night Cream I never came to reviewing another one here on BDI, not because I repurchased the Garnier one but because I used Aloe Vera Gel & a wonderful Aloe Vera overnight mask all through the summers. Today I am putting forward my views on my latest favorite night cream, Oriflame Optimals White Night Cream. The night cream comes in a glass jar with a silver grey screw-on lid. Also upon opening the main lid you would find a silver foil protector to keep the cream from becoming messy. The packaging is not hygienic as I have to dip my nails in the tub but it is travel-friendly.
The fragrance is sweet floral like the other Optimal White Range of products. Most people will like it. The cream is soft creamy and glides on the skin like butter. The consistency of this white night cream is between a gel and a lotion. But it takes time to get absorbed into the skin even after massaging it for a while. The cream just sits there on top of my skin for say 5 mins and thereafter the skin drinks it up. The night cream is not greasy and does not makes my skin oilier, it also is not on the heavier side though it hydrates and moisturises my oily skin well enough.
As you can see from the pics that I have already made more than half way through with this night cream, I must tell you that I like it a lot. I apply it religiously every night after cleansing & toning and gently massage it onto my skin. In the morning my skin is bright and radiant but not at all oily, it also feels soft and supple. The night haven't broken me out and does clog pores, that's the best part. The price is on the higher side but you can wait till the sales and get a good discount. Overall a good night cream for oily skin though Oriflame calls it a product for "all types of skin".
* Light-weight cream
* Non-greasy, non-sticky
* Does not clogs pores
* Mild floral fragrance
* Brightens skin with regular use
* Makes skin soft & supple
* Gives fresh & radiant skin in the morning
* Gives enough moisture & hydration to my oily skin
* Impressive ingredient list
* Not fit for dry and normal skin types though Oriflame claims it suits All Skin Types
* Available only through Oriflame consultants
* Pricey at Rs 590 for 50 gm
I rate Oriflame Optimals White Night Cream 4.5 out of 5. It is best suited for oily and combination skin as it is a light weight water based night cream. I love it and plan to repurchase it as soon as I finish it off. Highly recommended for oilies like me who love to flaunt fresh and bright skin.
