Oriflame luxury cosmetics for a glamorous look this winter

With icy winds, rain, sleet and snow through the long British winter months, it’s vital to care for your complexion – just as you would protect your skin in the summer sun.

Oriflame’s Ecollagen Skin Perfector is a magical serum to help restore your skin while you sleep.  I have been trying this for over a week, applying a tiny amount under my usual night cream.

The texture is light and luxurious with a gorgeous cooling effect as I smooth it evenly over the face.  It’s amazing that just a tiny pea sized drop is sufficient, using the easy to use “pipette” inside the attractive green bottle.

Nourishing and moisturising the deep skin layers overnight, it helps to stimulate collagen and therefore fine lines and wrinkles are reduced. I honestly saw a visible difference with a tighter, toned appearance.

Oriflame Skin Perfector is indeed a unique and truly luxury anti-wrinkle serum, created to rejuvenate your skin for the “perfect” beauty sleep.

So now, with youthful skin, you just need to enhance your complexion for all those festive season parties.

Oriflame Giordani Gold Foundation and Mascara

Oriflame Giordani Gold Foundation and Mascara

I have also recently sampled Oriflame’s Giordani Gold, a most ingenious foundation in a mirrored Compact.   I liked the white and gold oval shape, and inside is a neat half moon sponge applicator for the hard yet creamy and crumbly foundation-powder.

The shade I tested was Natural Beige, which looked rather too dark for my very fair skin, but using a very little on the sponge, I spread this thinly over my face.  I did not want to look as if I had applied too much fake tan!.   I was surprised that it blended in pretty well, although a fairer shade would be more suitable for me.

However my task was to test the Giordani Gold foundation as a product. I really liked the texture and it clearly achieved what it says “on the tin.! ”  …. “designed to make skin look instantly flawless … its velvety texture glides onto skin and leaves a silky powdery finish”

Yes, I agree.  A most unusual combination of foundation and face powder which gave me a refreshed, smooth and youthful complexion.

To complement the foundation compact, also try the new Giordani Gold Panorama Mascara, rather a lengthy name, but it offers glamour in an instant.

I had expected luscious gold packaging, but it’s just black.   However, the shape of the mascara brush is amazing – like a tiny Christmas tree. !   Applying the mascara, the lower thick “branches” reach the lashes at the outside of your eye, while the slimmer top end of the brush lightly touches the inner lashes.

It’s a clever design following the natural curve of your eyelid, so that one easy stroke gives all your lashes a separate, evenly distributed, lengthened effect and neat curl.   Perfect!
