Hey guys, a happy new year to all! May this year bring a lot of opportunities for you…..

Happy new year

The last week of 2017 was awesome and I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly with my friends here in Pune. I just realized, its Tuesday already and amidst all the celebration, I haven’t posted for a week now. Also, it has been a long time since I reviewed a skincare product, I thought today I might just review a product which is a part of my daily skincare routine right now.

The product I’m going to review today is the Oriflame Essentials Fairness Cream. The brand has some amazing range of skincare and makeup products in various price range to suit every budget. Oriflame Essential Fairness Cream is primarily a fairness cream but apart from the fairness quality, this product comes with a little amount of SPF as well. It contains SPF 8 which is pretty good for someone wanting to apply this cream and staying back at home. The product also contains Vitamin E which and as we already know vitamin E is essential for our skin’s health.

How to use the Oriflame Essentials Fairness Cream?

Take a little amount of your palm and gently dab it on your face. Massage it until it gets absorbed into your skin.


The packaging of the Oriflame Essentials Fairness Cream is simple. It comes in a white and pink plastic tube with a screw open cap which makes the product quite travel-friendly. You will find the name of the product written on the front portion of the tube and the ingredients list mentioned on its back.

Fragrance and Texture:

The product has a mild flowery scent and it does not linger for long. The fragrance is very mild can also be bored by a sensitive nose. The product has a creamy consistency which not very thick or runny. The colour of the cream is baby pink.

My Experience:

Talking about my experience, the first thing that caught my attention is the cute yet simple packaging of the product. Being travel-friendly, the product deserves to earn few more brownie points. The screw open cap is very sturdy and does not open very easily thus you don’t have to worry about the product coming out.

Oriflame Fairness Cream Price

You only need a pea size amount of the product for your whole face and the product spreads very evenly on the skin. Once applied, it does not leaves any white cast and gets absorbed into the skin very quickly. The product also gives a dewy finish which is a plus point. The formula is enriched with vitamin E which offers proper nourishment to the skin and the SPF 8 in it is an added factor which makes the cream just perfect for everyday use.However, I wish the SPF content of the product was little more.

Having an SPF of 20 and above would have made the Oriflame Essentials Fairness Cream perfect for outdoor use too. I have a combination skin and I’m really happy about the fact that the product didn’t break me out despite containing few chemicals in its ingredients list. Depending on the amount you use daily, a single tube will last up to 3-4 months. I’m not sure about its fairness claim but I can tell that my skin has become soft, smooth and glowing. If you really want to give a natural glow to your dull skin, then this product is definitely worth a try.

Would I recommend this product or repurchase it?

Oriflame Fairness Cream Usage

Yes, I will totally recommend the Oriflame Essentials Fairness Cream to someone looking for an affordable daily skin cream. Although the SPF is low and the cream may not lighten your natural skin colour, the Oriflame Essential Fairness cream really works great as a daily skincare cream. I would have loved to repurchase it if Oriflame would have increased the SPF for this one and made it perfect to use outdoors too.
