Hi All,

I picked this up about 3mths earlier. I was out of my usual night cream and happened to come across this when on offer in the Oriflame catalogue. I saw the words mentioned Matte Touch and Gel Cream in the same line and blindly ordered it..hehe..

Now since it’s almost over I tought it’s the right time to review it for you gals.

Packaging – This comes in a thick glass tub. Its a transparent jar with a green screw top. The entire jar comes boxed as well. I would have preferred a tube packaging for 2 reasons, 1 being that it would have been a lot more hygenic and also coz it would have been easier to carry around since this ia kinda fragile and heavy too.

Texture – The cream unexpectedly, is an off-white color. I had anticipated a transparent gel, but my mind omitted the ‘GEL-CREAM’ part of things 🙂 The Cream is not too thick and is very very light like a souffle in fact. Its extremely moisturizing and one doesn’t need too much for a single use. But yes, I have yet to figure out what the ‘Matte Touch’ meant…Any ideas?

 Fragrance – This cream has a lovely Melon fragrance and is soooooo pleasant to the senses. I had never thought of Melon scent as being therapeutic, but girls, this is really really lovely. The scent makes me think of fresh fruits and is super relaxing.

Usage – I just scoop out a tiny bit, probably half of the amount shown above and spread onto the skin.

My Verdict:

The first time I used this, I guess I used too much and my face looked like a oil factory even after the required amount was absorbed. So yes, it did take me a couple of days to understand the right amount to be used. Its supremely moisturizing and gr8 for those with dry to normal skin. I have combination skin with an oily T-Zone and this still works well for me. When I eet up in the morning, I feel fresh and my skin feels moisturized and awake without any morning puffiness which otherwise accompanies it. So its a huge plus for me 🙂

  • Gets rid of the morning puffiness that suffuses my face when I get up.
  • Lasts a long time since a very tiny quantity is needed for a single use.

  • Contains parabens.
  • A bit pricey

I love this cream for sure..have any of you tried it as well?

    • A, i dont think it has any specific anti-ageing funda…but i believe that if it moisturizes the skin so well and removes puffiness and all it should help to a certain extent. But wrt tightening the skin and all, I dont think this helps at all..

  1. i really wanted to get this…but since it isnt on offer this month, i bought ponds re-brightening night cream. I’m in LOVE with it! Its the best ever night cream for oily skin :dance-leftright:
