This is my first article on Wise She & IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m very excited about it. Anamika, who manages WiseShe is a very dear blogger buddy for me, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not praising her just because IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m posting an article on her blog, but I swear she is one of those few friendly & sweet bloggers I have ever come across. Every time you ask her a query or a beauty tip & she replies at the earliest, I hope most of you agree with that. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m especially fond of her because she stays in Hyderabad which is my birth place & she has all praises for Hyderabad weather 😉 Just yesterday I was telling my Fiance that our sweet Anamika has mentioned my name in her post & how she remembers us even when she is on a vacation & today Anamika gave me an opportunity to write for her blog! I hope my stint with WiseShe is going to be wonderful for years to come!
I have become an Oriflame consultant recently so this review is about this amazing Avocado foot cream from Oriflame that I bought.

Benefits of Avocado:
It is high in sterolins, which are reputed to reduce age spots, help heal sun damage and scars. It is the sterolins (also called plant steroids) in the oil that helps to soften the skin and imparts a superior moisturizing effect
Avocado is frequently used in rich spa products because it’s provides a rich source of vitamin A, B, D and E.
Avocado oil is easily absorbed into deep tissue, and with its wonderfully emollient properties, makes it ideal for mature skins. It also helps to relieve the dryness and itching of psoriasis and eczema.
In earlier times, avocado pulp was used as a hair pomade (Pomade means Hairdressing consisting of a perfumed oil or ointment) to stimulate hair growth.
It is used both in prevention and treatment of prostate and breast cancers. Scientists have proved that a toxin in avocado kills the cancer cells.
Avocado yields rich and extremely deep penetrating oil, rich in vitamins A, D and E, lecithin, as well as potassium – known as the youth mineral. Avocado contains more potassium than a banana approximately 60 percent more.
Avocado is used to help people who have sexual problems.
It is used to heal people who suffer from digestive and circulatory problems.

AvocadoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hindi name is Makhanphal
Avocado is used in Indian recipes too! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s used as chutney while eating dosas, idlies, also used as Avocado Yoghurt dip.
For people in Hyderabad, avocado is available at Q- mart Rdno.3 Banjara hills, Ratnadeep supermarket at vikrampuri Secunderabad, Srinagar colony and Madhapur, ruci and idoni at Gvk one mall Banjara hills and Rd.no 4 Banjara hills, also they are sometimes available at heritage fresh outlets.
What does Oriflame claim about this cream: Oriflame Overnight Moisturising Foot Cream with Avocado, with a unique blend of moisturizers including avocado oil soften & soothes the skin.
Ingredients: AQUA, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, UREA, GLYCERIN, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, SODIUM CETEARYL SULFATE, CETEARETH-12, DIMETHICONE, IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA, METHYLPARABEN,PARFUM, PROPYLPARABEN, PANTHENOL, PERSEA GRATISSIMA(THIS IS THE OIL OBTAINED FROM AVOCADO), LIMONENE, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LINALOOL.
Directions to Use: Though it says use overnight, I use it during the day too.
Price: Rs 198 for 75ML
Pros of this cream: I always applied Vaseline before going to bed for dry feet until I found this foot cream which has become an important part of my foot care regimen. This is a very moisturizing cream & gets easily absorbed in the skin. This is not a watery kind of cream but a rich cream that instantly moisturizes your feet, I made my FiancÃƒÂ© try this & he agrees that it gets easily absorbed & you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to massage much. This can be used before wearing your shoes or footwear when you are in a hurry to go out because this get absorbed in a jiff & is not Oily at all. This comes in a very attractive hygienic green colored tube & can be easily carried in a bag. The cream smells like mint (kind of smells like polo mint) & is not heavily perfumed. This is a small 75ML tube but I guess it will last at least for a month because a very small amount of cream is required to moisturize the feet. Though it says it has to be used overnight, but I use it during daytime whenever I see any dryness on my feet, so you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have bother about wearing socks, you can just apply the cream & walk bare feet around the house.
Cons of this cream: This cream is not available at any cosmetic stores, if you run out of the cream you will have to place an order & wait for it to arrive.
Recommendation: Ladies, I will certainly recommend this. With winters approaching, this could be the best foot cream that you could lay your hands on & never regret it.
People who are newbie in this beauty world could try this before going for the High-end brands.
