Packaging: Oriflame Sweden Milk and Honey Gold Nourishing Hand and Body Cream comes in a transparent tub. I am not a huge fan of products that are packed in tubs for several reasons :(i) Tub packaging is not considered hygienic as the product comes in contact with the fingers everytime it is used and it is better to use a spatula instead. Care should be taken that wet and dirty hands are not used while handling the tub (ii) The efficacy of the ingredients is affected after coming in contact with the air.
The packaging is bulky and not travel-friendly but looks pretty.
My Experience: I have used a number of Oriflame products in the past. I knew a consultant and bought many products from her each month, some of which were never used. I still feel that I need to learn a lot when it comes to money management, there are times when I buy products that I never use and regret wasting money on them later. 🙁
However, Oriflame Milk and Honey Nourishing Hand and Body Cream was not an impulsive purchase. I have heard great reviews of this range and was excited to use a product from this brand after 4 years. I mostly use it as a hand cream in the night and like the way it gets absorbed into the skin. It has a creamy texture which is not too thick but not watery either. It has a beautiful honey-ish fragrance which lasts for some time. I like the way my skin feels after application and I wake up with soft looking hands. However, I spend my night sleeping in a temperature controlled room but the story is different during the day. It does not work as well in this dry wintry weather when used during daytime. In fact, it works more like a simple lotion that requires reapplication every few hours. I am sure it will be good on oily skin and even on normal skin in summers but a more nourishing cream is required for dry skinned people especially in winters. I will continue to use it as a hand cream in the night though as there is a lot of quantity left in the tub.
What I like about the product:
- Oriflame Milk and Honey Gold Nourishing Hand and Body Cream has a creamy consistency and it absorbs really well into the skin.
- Skin feels soft when I use it as a hand cream in the night.
- It has a pleasant honey smell that lasts for some time after application.
- It is lightweight and does not make the skin oily.
- Oriflame Milk and Honey Gold Nourishing Hand and Body Cream is available online as well as through the consultants.
- It is good for use on oily and normal skin.
- It is a decently priced product.
What I don’t like about the product:
- Oriflame Milk and Honey Nourishing Hand and Body Cream is not suitable for use on very dry skin. In fact, it is not good even for dry skin in winters.
- The moisturizing effect does not last long and you have to reapply the cream every few hours.
- The packaging is bulky and not travel-friendly.
- Tub packaging
Verdict: Oriflame Sweden Milk and Honey Gold Nourishing Hand and Body Cream is a lightweight cream that does not provide ample hydration to my skin in winters. However, it will be good for people with oily skin and can be used on normal to dry skin in summers. It has a mild pleasant smell of honey.
