“ Brand: Oriflame / Texture: Cream / Type: Body Cream „
Silk & Cashmere sounds very luxurious for me. I am at the stage of my life when as student living away from home I cannot really afford many fancy clothes or cosmetics. My friend, however, decided to spoil me with Oriflame Silk & Cashmere Softening Body Cream. This limited edition of products came in purple (instead of pale pink) containers. I honestly adore the design of this round, plastic and shiny vessel. Its dark colour makes me think of the days when it becomes colder and windier and you just feel like covering yourself up with a blanket or a duvet and drinking hot chocolate. Therefore I think it is more of a autumn/winter product whereas the other silk & cashmere cream would make it perfect for the summer.
When I opened the container, I didn't really know what kind of scent to expect. This one turned out to be a very pleasant and mild one which doesn't really remind me of anything I have smelled so far (maybe, in a way, it is a bit similar to Dove shower gels). It seems to disappear very quickly - or maybe it is just so mild I forget about it.
I absolutely love the texture of this product - it is very creamy but not too thick, a bit like custard. It is very easy to apply on the skin which absorbs it fairly quickly. It leaves the skin very smooth and soft, very pleasant to touch - great effect! It does moisturise, however, I don't think it would be sufficient for a dry skin. It was just about fine with my normal skin that can get drier every here and there at times.
Unfortunately, this cream seems to have run out very quickly. Normally I use this kind of cosmetics every day and usually a 200ml about a week longer - and I run out of this one in less than three weeks.
As far as I am concerned, you cannot normally buy this cream - it appears on special offers and one container would cost around £5.00.
Thank you for reading my review.
