Soothe Your Dry Skin With Body Creams

The kind of skin I have, it needs constant care to keep it hydrated. Many other like me who have dry skin type might be experiencing those small fine flakes and dry patches on their body that actually suck. For most people, skin dryness is common in colder winter months and drier climates, but there are some who face it all the year long. Skin dryness might be caused due to excessive skin cleansing, frequent exposure to hot water, environmental factors, lesser liquid intake, side effect of some medication or simply a genetic condition. My skin usually feel tight n itchy after shower and looks ashy n rough until I apply generous amount of moisturizer. Recently I realized that I've not been benefited despite repeated application of moisturizer. Probably I didn't pick an emollient based on the ingredients and composition needed for my dry skin & the moisturizer gets worn off quickly leaving my skin back to the condition where I started.

After this realization, I decided to give body creams a try which contains more oils and thus ordered two variants from Oriflame a month ago. So here are my thoughts on these-

Possess Perfumed Body Cream

With a timeless, sparkling yet intensely seductive fragrance, Possess Body Cream embodies the provocative allure of Cleopatra and keeps your skin sensually soft all over. Formulated with a higher fragrance concentration, it’s laced with intoxicatingly tempting notes of ylang ylang, and leaves no one indifferent as it casts its spell.
Love Potion Perfumed Body Cream
Stay soft all over and excite pure passion with Love Potion Body Cream. With a higher fragrance concentration, set the mood with this seductive oriental scent with ginger, cocoa blossom and chocolate. Surrender to an irresistible awakening of sensual pleasure.
Product Packaging
Both the body creams come in similar packaging that is in huge round tubs. They look cute lying on your washroom shelf. The tubs have broad opening, so one has to be extra careful to avoid water dripping inside the tub if you're applying it in your washroom post shower. Also either you should a spatula to take out the cream or if using fingers, make sure your hands are not wet.
I always keep some body lotions in my office bag, travel bag, in my car and wherever I can be; but these huge sized body cream packs are somehow inconvenient to carry around unless you transfer some quantity in a smaller jar. 
The plus point of such tub packaging is that you can utilise even the last traces of product and avoid any wastage.

Price & Qty: INR 779 each for 250 g (can be purchased in offers from Oriflame consultants for a lesser price)

Product Texture:
The creams are of consistency similar to whipped cream. It's neither runny as a moisturizer nor thick as a body butter...It's texture is somewhere in between.
Fragrance:
If you noticed, both these body creams are 'perfumed' (as the name reveals). I experienced that the fragrance lingers on your body for hours after application and feels like you've applied a mild deodorant. Those who wear gentle fragrances may probably skin their usual perfumes if any of these body creams is applied. I personally liked Possess's fragrance more.

How to use these and how it feels on skin?
The body creams provide the most benefit when applied on your skin right after the bath. Just massage it lightly on your body when the skin is still damp and then pat your skin dry. The damp skin best absorbs the moisture and locks it in for a longer time. A repeated application before bedtime is a must for me for a comfortable sleep in my soft skin.
Oriflame body creams, despite lighter in texture, are richer and luxurious when applied. They penetrate the skin in no time, create barrier that nourishes the skin and as a result prevents moisture from evaporating through the pores. Your skin really feels hydrated without looking shiny and greasy. Adding a body cream to your daily skin care regime not just softens the rough skin for the moment, but gives ongoing skin nourishment.
These body creams are boon for dry skin type, but those who have normal to oily skin type and still have rough areas on their body like around the elbows, knees or feet might avail benefit from body cream application.
For me, Oriflame perfumed body creams not only served well for my moisturizing needs, but also give me a sensory relaxation from their scented wealth and skin suppleness.
