Starting the review with its packaging and price
PACKAGING AND PRICE- Of course it looks cute. It comes in a sturdy, transparent bottle, with a white cap. You can see its image bellow. Oriflame offers many discounts every month so the price of the products keeps fluctuating every now and then

DIRECTIONS FOR USE- Apply it with the help of a cotton ball after each time you wash your face with a cleanser or a face wash.

INGREDIENTS – AQUA, PEG 40, HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, GLYCERIN, PHENOXYETHANOL, IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA, PARFUM, PANTHENOL, SODIUM CITRATE, METHYLPARABEN, DISODIUM EDTA, PROPYLPARABEN, ETHYLPARABEN, LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA EXTRACT, LINALOOL, VACCINIUM MYRTILLUS EXTRACT, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM HYALURONATE, CI 17200 CI42090.

PROS
1) Travel friendly
2) Cute packaging
3) Good fragrance
4) 100% organic in nature
5) Doesn’t cause any break outs or irritation to the skin.
6) Can be Used by all skin type people

CONS- If I start listing the cons, it would be a long list so I will sum up the cons in my summary. Here I will just list main cons of this product
1) It has parabens
2) Too many chemicals

SUMMARY – The main characteristic of a toner is to tighten the pores. Since I don’t have any major problem about large pores, I can not tell you for sure if this toner tightens the pores or not. Coming to the other claims, oriflame says that the blueberry and lavender toner calms the skin, makes it soft and prepares the skin for the application of skin. I don’t think this toner lives up to its claims. After applying the toner I don’t get any calming feel. The skin feels a bit sticky after application. It makes the skin look dull, in fact the skin looks more radiant before applying it.

I would give this product 2 stars out of 5 just for the cute look and pleasant fragrance.

Cya lovely readers Ela would b back soon with her review on the blueberry and lavender cream.

Ingredients- Aqua, sodium c12-15 pareth sulfate, peg-120 methyl glucose dioleate, cocamidopropyl betaine, glycerin, decyl glucoside, oleth-20, phenoxyethanol, parfum, methylparaben, sodium chloride, citric acid, propylparaben, ethylparaben, lavandula angustifolia extract, vaccinium myrtillus extract, linalool, ci 17200, ci 42090

Pros
1) It is 100% organic
2) Travel friendly packaging
3) It has a good fragrance
4) Moisurise and calms the skin (good for dry skin)
5) It is a gentle/mild face wash (good for sensitive skin)
6) It is not too harsh on the skin (good for normal skin)

Cons
1) It is not paraben free
2) It doesn’t cleanse deeply ( not suitable for oily skin)
3) Expensive
4) Not easily available in general stores, super markets or chemists

Where can you find Oriflame products..?
You can avail Oriflame products from Oriflame distributors/consultants/members world wide. You can even get Oriflame products directly from the Oriflame outlets in your city, if you are an Oriflame member.

Summary- Before purchasing any skin-care products, it is always best to choose the products that would suit your skin type. This would give you the best results. Though the catelogue suggests the blueberry and lavender face wash is for all skin type, it would best suit normal-dry and sensitive skin people. It is an extremely mild face wash so it doesn’t remove makeup properly.

I would rate this face wash 3.5 stars out of 5
