My Experience with Oriflame Very Me Peach Me Perfect Skin Glow:
Packaging & Texture:
Oriflame Very Me Peach Me Perfect Skin Glow comes in a small and cute tube with a screw cap at the bottom. The black and orange color combination of the tube is quite attractive and trendy.
The texture of it is not at all gel-like as described by the brand; it is thick and creamy. It is also very easy to apply and spread on the skin. The smell is very pleasant; most of the Oriflame Cosmetics have the similar smell. I have this in the light shade, though I have yellowish medium skin; this shade seems to suit my skin tone. But, I still think this shade is for fair skin tone.
I have recently tried many foundations and tinted moisturizers; I bought them all quite close to my skin tone or little bit warmer. But, this shade really attracted me and I thought of giving it a try. Luckily I am in good luck that it does not make me a white ghost!
The first thing I notice about it is it gives a very smooth coating after application. It also leaves a shine, not oily though. Some of you might not like the shine, but I like it. When I apply foundation and compact, the natural glows of my skin stays hidden; but call me crazy, with Very Me Peach Me Perfect Skin Glow I feel like it reflects that natural glow.
This tinted moisturizer gives a nice coverage, only a pea-size of this amount does the work. It hides all the acne spots pretty well. I really like the rich, creamy and smooth finish it gives. But the one glitch in my mind about this is it has shimmers. Though the shimmers are not too much visible on the skin but, after removing, it leaves its traces.
The After Effect:
The staying power of this tinted moisturizer is quite well, it never wears off. It even survives my heavy sweating (I dab my sweat with tissue) in summer days. It controls oil up to 3 hours; I have normal skin with oily T-zone. Also, it does not clog pores, meaning no acne parade afterwards (YAY!).
The Good Points:
- Nice quality brand.
- Gives nice coverage.
- Gives smooth and glowing look.
- Can be worn alone.
- Only a pea-size amount is needed every time.
- Spreads on the skin very well.
- Fairly priced.
The Not-So-Good Points:
- It has shimmers.
- No SPF.
- Contains PARABEN.
- Does not control oil for long hours.
I like Oriflame Very Me Peach Me Perfect Skin Glow, but the shimmers were unwanted. It gives a very rich, smooth and glowing look and no other foundation is needed after this, not even compact (to retain the glowing look). I wear this both for my day and night wear. Though this particular shade might be apt for fair skin tone, I guess I will suit whitish medium skin tone also. My final verdict is I love this small yet trendy little tinted moisturizer.
My Rating: 4.5/5.
