I would usually use a shower gel to wash my body and then a body lotion when I leave the shower cubicle. One day I came across Oriflame Silk & Cashmere In-Shower Moisturiser and I thought it was a very interesting idea. I remained skeptical about its 2-in-1 property but I just couldn't not try it.
It comes in a pale pink plastic tub with a screw lid at the bottom. Its design isn't any different to other Oriflame Silk & Cashmere cosmetics but as I have mentioned in my previous revious I think it is very modern yet plain. Its scent is very mild and delicate - just exactly the same like other Silk & Cashmere products, very feminine and pleasant.
I thought I would just need to use it like any other shower gels but I was wrong. You need to wash your body and then you apply it and leave it for a couple of minutes. I found it a bit funny and time-consuming, and I also got cold... It does, however, do its job - after that my skin was moisturised and nourished, noticeably softer and smoother which proved my skepticism wrong.
Its texture is, surprisingly, very lotion-like. I expected something thicker and richer but it was quite runny. It is therefore very easy to apply but at the same time I noticed I tend to use quite a lot of it so one tub did not really last for a long time - it disappeared before I had noticed.
Overall, I think that this in-shower moisturiser is a good idea, and it does its job but at the same time, waiting for 2 minutes for it to absorb and then washing it off can be quite tiring. Paying £6.75 for 150 ml it is not really worth it.
Thank you for reading my review.
