“ Brand: Oriflame / Type: Body Lotion „
Even though I don't have dry skin, I love using different body lotions or butters. I tend to buy a lot of different products and most of the times I choose some fancy scents (raspberry and similar ones) but once I purchased Oriflame Body Lotion with Triple Cereal Active because I simply thought it sounded very interesting. Well, it was.
It comes in a big white bottle with an orange lit. To be honest, I don't demand fancy pictures but at the same time I think that the design is slightly too plain. The bottle is slightly difficult to open if you have very long nails (I personally don't so it's not a problem). I am sure that I won't accidentally spill this body lotion all over the floor as the lid doesn't open very easily.
The body lotion itself smells really nice and fresh; I find the smell very difficult to describe (after all, what does triple cereal smell like?). It is very mild so I usually apply my favourite parfume or eau de toilette straight after using it. It is gone very quickly and it barely spreads around the bathroom.
In my opinion, the texture is a bit... weird. It is relatively thick (as for a lotion) but I still thought that the skin will absorb it fairly quickly. It actually doesn't and you really need to make sure you spread this body lotion properly which may be more time-consuming compared to other body products. I am often in a hurry and try to apply a bit of body lotion after a quick shower and unfortunately, in this moment Oriflame doesn't work for me.
This is a bit of a shame because it is a very good moisturiser indeed. After a few days of using at once a day, my skin became much softer and smoother. It was actually nice to touch my arms or legs to see that my skin is now really nice. Also, I have used it after shaving, when the skin is a bit red and gets dry fairly quickly and it also worked really well. It is nourishing but as I have said before, I don't have dry skin. Taking into account the fact that Oriflame say it is for normal skin, I can say that this body lotion does its job well.
It took me ages to use one whole bottle up even though I was applying it almost every single day. Therefore I think that the price for a 400 ml bottle isn't high - £5.95. It can also be found on offer quite frequently (Oriflame organise promotions in every catalogue on different products so if you don't mind waiting for your skin to absorb it, it is going to be perfect.
