The invite of first ever Oriflame Pakistan’s Bloggers meetup came in as a sweet surprise to me because I haven’t seen them very active on social media platforms before. In fact their direct selling method is the one which keeps you wondering about them. Few of my relatives & friends are already working with Oriflame as their consultants and keep informing me about the new offers & products. So, it is a kind of household name to us.
The products need no fake praises because everyone knows that they’re worth every penny. Also, the ingredients are cruelty free & natural, making their skin care range one of the best out there. But that wasn’t the goal of this unique bloggers meetup. I was excited about going there to actually know what makes them go active on social media. Glad that I went and met Oriflame Pakistan’s enthusiastic team with some amazing fellow bloggers. It was one of the best meetups that I have been to.
We were greeted by Fahad, Sufyan & Gul afshan at the meetup as we’re like their family. It was all about the vision behind Oriflame Sweden’s birth & then how it spreads globally. Oriflame Sweden aims to fulfill dreams of their employees(basically the resellers, whom they call consultants and managers).
Oriflame Sweden is almost 50 years old & one of world’s few certified direct selling companies, providing employment opportunities to people from the comfort of their homes while having no compromise on the quality of their products. In fact they are proud of the way they operate.
In past 8 years Oriflame Pakistan has managed to become a family of 12000 consultants Countrywide. As per standard procedure Oriflame products came in catalog offers to their respective consultants for buyers. You’ll get them sometimes with a discount too when there is a promotion going on. The key is to keep an eye on offers.
Product review- Oriflame Products that I’ve tried so far:
I’ve used Oriflame’s 5in1 facial foam, Tea tree based blemish corrector, The ONE spa care lip balm, Giordani Gold bronzing pearls(In Natural peach shade this bronzer is a bomb) and eye liner way before this meetup happened. This was the first time that I’ve tried their complete makeup range and skin creams. The goody bag (even the invite) was surprisingly a generous one with lots of winter essentials.
I’ve used their The ONE illuskin foundation in Ivory shade. It has a very light, non greasy formula that spreads evenly on your face giving medium coverage. Somewhat similar to a BB cream or fit me foundation. With a pressed powder you can get a perfect base for a formal look or you can easily carry it without powder for everyday look. The foundation has SPF 20 protection & the pump dispenser comes with a twist n lock head. That’s a plus.
The oh so heavy jar of Milk & Honey gold nourishing hand & body cream is my favorite product these days. The cream is quite pasty n thick, easily manageable, not an oily one & gives a softer hydrated feel. O Gosh it makes your skin smell like just out of a dessert bar. Perfect winter companion.
Pure color Lipsticks didn’t impress me with their pigmentation & packaging. They are pretty glossy & have low staying power.
The ONE lipsticks both matte & glossy are decent. I got Cranberry blush shade of The ONE lipstick & coral shade in matte. Both packaging & pigmentation is good for these two shades(the stain of matte lipstick stays way longer than you actually want). The Giordano range of lipsticks felt like royalty. They were so moisturizing & luxurious.
Feet-up foot cream is on trial these days & I’ll review it after using for atleast 2 weeks but so far so good. There are lots of other items in the goody bag that I’ll be trying soon to let you all know what’s worth buying from Oriflame Pakistan.
PS: Go through Oriflame’s love Natural skin care range as it is my favorite one so far. You’ll love it because of the tea tree benefits.
It is good to see Oriflame Pakistan growing at a pace in Pakistan. I hope they continue to strive for the best in future too. You can check Oriflame Pakistan’s website to explore their products or ask from any of their consultants near you.
