I never liked body scrubs before I found the Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold Smoothing Sugar Scrub. This is an amazing find for me from a relatively less talked about brand and this body scrub actually works!

On my last trip to India, I got this from my local Oriflame agent, who also used to come home for facials and stuff, and I fell in love with this body scrub. Prior to this, I always thought body scrubs are gimmicky products which don’t do anything. Honestly, before this I hardly found one body scrub which did anything which a scrub is supposed to do. I had not ventured into high-end products that time and I still haven’t, because I love this so much.

CLAIMS

This product is supposed to be infused with organically sourced extracts of milk and honey which helps to remove dead skin cells for a soft, supple and wonderfully fragrant skin. Milk is rich in moisturising and conditioning vitamins, minerals and proteins – for soft, supple skin. Honey is a sugar-rich ingredient containing vitamins, minerals and folic acid. Gently exfoliates, revitalises and locks in moisture for soft, supple, radiant skin.

Milk & Honey Gold smoothing Sugar Scrub is a luxury sugar scrub infused with organically sourced extracts of milk and honey and a natural origin exfoliant. Buffs away dead skin cells to leave skin soft, supple and wonderfully fragrant.

PACKAGING

This body scrub comes in a tube packaging, which I really like. It’s easy to dispense out the required amount of product. But, my cap is a little faulty and it doesn’t close very smoothly. I hope it’s an issue with only my packaging and is not a problem with all the caps. Other than that, I don’t have any other issues with the packaging. I really like the golden honey coloured tube as well.

PRICE

The price of this product is Rs. 649 for 200 gm of product. It’s quite a lot of product which we are getting for Rs. 649, and I think the price point is quite justified considering the quality. I got it for 20%-30% off as far as I can remember. So, you can definitely check that.

Its been 3 months that I have been using this product on and off and I still have a lot of scrub left. So, I am sure this is going to last for quite a long time.

HOW TO USE

It is advised to be used on damp skin 1-2 times a week to gently exfoliate and nourish.

I use it just once a week and I found that it gives the best results after I have cleansed my body. So, I use this product after I have used shower gel on my body and rinsed it off. Then, I go ahead and use this product to scrub my skin. I usually cleanse my face before exfoliating, so I use the same principle for my body. You can ahead and do it in whichever order it works best for you.

RESULTS

I have seen very good results using this product. I found that all it’s claims are absolutely true!

  • It exfoliates the skin really well leaving it feeling very soft and clean.
  • The exfoliating beads or the sugar granules leave the skin very smooth as well.
  • It also has an amazing scent and the wonderful scent also lingers on the skin for a little while.

The consistency of the product is quite thick and you can feel very tiny sugar granules in it. At least, I think it is sugar! I feel the granules are a perfect size and in perfect density in the product. In some body scrubs the exfoliating beads are too big and too sparse that they hardly do anything. That is not the case with this product.

You can see the texture of the scrub here. It has the right amount of viscosity and exfoliating agents, in my opinion, which helps to scrub the skin very effectively.

Overall, I will highly recommend this product to any one who is looking for a good body scrub. I am not sure of it’s availability worldwide but next time I am in India, I will definitely buy one more!

That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers!
