Product Review - Oriflame Pure Skin Scrub Face Wash



   Skincare is the basis of a healthy and radiant complexion, something that all of us desire. We often end up trying loads of products, to find the ones which would fit perfectly into our daily skincare regimen to help us achieve the same. The search for my ideal skincare products recently brought me knocking on doors of Oriflame, a Sweden based company with almost 50 years of experience in field of manufacturing and selling personal care, accessories and nutritional products. Have been using the Oriflame Pure Skin Scrub Face Wash since a long time and reviewing the same here today.

   Product Claims: A deep-acting, exfoliating cleanser which targets spots and blackheads by penetrating pores with powerful anti-bacterial ingredients. Continues to work long after you’ve washed your face. Use daily.

 
   Price: Rs. 499/-
   Volume: 150 ml.
   Shelf Life: 36 months.
   Directions: Massage over wet face, and rinse. Avoid direct contact with eyes. 
   Ingredients:Aqua, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Cccamidopropy Betaine, Polyethylene, Decyl Glucoside, Salicylic Acid, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Parfum, Oryza Sativa Cera, Methylparaben, Menthol, Undecylenoyl Glycine, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Aluminium Hydroxide, CI 42090.


   The Oriflame Pure Skin Scrub Face Wash comes packaged in form of a tall translucent see-through container with a bluish tinge and is provided with a pump dispenser. It has the name of the product, its actions and volume provided mentioned on its front side while its product claims, directions for use, ingredients and manufacturing details are printed on the back. The packaging of the product is sturdy, simple, attractive and travel friendly with the pump dispenser having a lock mechanism which prevents leakage of the product while in transit.
   The Oriflame Pure Skin Scrub Face Wash consists of a semi solid light bluish solution with dark blue exfoliating micro beads interspersed in it. The face wash is mildly scented and only a small amount of it is required to cleanse the face. It produces sufficient amount of lather when mixed with water to cleanse the skin and get rid of dirt, oil and makeup while providing it with a cooling sensation at the same time. The face wash takes a bit extra time rinse off properly due to its creaminess, but despite that leaves patches of my combination type skin dry, especially around my mouth. Its exfoliating microbeads scrubs away the dead skin cells and are gentle on the skin. It provides skin with a fresh feeling, giving instant radiance and glowing complexion. The face wash helps to keep the face oil free for couple of hours, making it ideal for people with oily skin. Also, daily use helps to reduce the eruption of acne. On the downside, it contains many harmful substances like parabens and sulphates.
   The Oriflame Pure Skin Scrub Face Wash can be purchased easily through any Oriflame consultant and also via online retail sites though it would be more prudent to do so during periods of sales and offers as it is priced at the higher side of the spectrum.

   Cons:

- Leaves patches of dry skin on face.
- Price is a bit on the higher side of the spectrum.
- Contains parabens and sulphates.
 
 
   Verdict: 4/5. Though a bit on the pricier side, this face wash's thorough cleansing property and preventive action against oil build up is bound to make people with oily skin its loyal customers.
