My todays blog post is about Oriflame Shower Gel For Sensitive Skin With Mango & Yoghurt. Oriflame is a very popular brand here in Russia. Oriflame say they produce natural cosmetics but this statement is doubtful. I'd rather say they produce cosmetics containing natural ingredients. And the amount of natural ingredients in their products is often insufficient to provide any positive effect to the skin. When people say they feel the difference using such products I believe it's self-hypnosis. People pay their own money and they want to feel the difference...
Anyway, all of us have the experience of using such 'natural' cosmetic products. And I want to share mine with you.
Oriflame Shower Gel For Sensitive Skin With Mango & Yoghurt / the packaging
What company says: Soothes sensitive skin. (Info from Ru.Oriflame.com)
Brevity is the soul of wit, isn't it?
Directions: Use on the wet skin, lather and rinse.

Price: $4.60 / 140 rub. for 6.6 fl.oz. / 200 ml. but it's on sale like always. Now the price is $2.63 / 79 rub. Available only through ORIFLAME reps. I received this as a gift.
My experience: Oriflame Shower Gel For Sensitive Skin With Mango & Yoghurt comes in a standard clear soft plastic bottle with a flip cap.
This gel has light orange color and it's slightly pearlescent. To my taste, the texture of this shower gel is too runny. It has mango scent that seems synthetic to me but it's not overpowering.
Oriflame Shower Gel For Sensitive Skin With Mango & Yoghurt / the texture
I have nothing more to say about this shower gel. Nothing good and nothing bad. It's just an ordinary shower gel. My only complaint is that this shower gel doesn't lather well and the bottle doesn't last long which is unexpectedly for shower gel containing Sodium Laureth Sulfate. However it doesn't leave the skin dry and flaking.
My skin isn't sensitive so I can't tell you if this shower gel will irritate sensitive skin.
And what about you? Have you ever tried Oriflame products?
