I received a shower gel as a gift and I absolutely fell in love with the milk & honey gold scent so I had to buy Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold Nourishing Hand & Body Cream when I found it on promotion. I must admit it didn't disappoint me.
This cream comes in a transparent vessel with a golden lid. Like all Milk & Honey Gold cosmetics, it looks quite luxurious. The cream itself is almost white.
The texture is, in my opinion, perfect. It is not runny but not too thick, a bit runnier than... custard (this is the only comparison I can come up with). The skin absorbs it very quickly so it is the sort of cream you can use it both in the morning and in the evening. It is simply a pleasure to apply this cream, I think it is one of the best ones produced by Oriflame.
The smell is lovely. A bit superficial I suppose but at the same time I absolutely adore. I sometimes go to the bathroom just to open this cream and smell it. Unfortunately, it is gone quite quickly (especially when you compare it to the Body Shop products) but if you smell your body then it is still there (I have actually discovered this by accident).
After using this cream for a bit (a week or so) your skin will become really smooth and soft. Even my elbows were nourished which doesn't happen with all the creams I have used.
I haven't tried using it as a hand cream simply because I have always a separate cosmetics - my hands get extremely dry and I don't think it would be sufficient.
Unfortunately, it is quite expensive: you will pay £6.45 for a 250ml container. You can, however, find it on promotion quite often and save a couple of pounds. It can be bought from Oriflame reps who as far as I remember can be also found from their website http://www.oriflame.co.uk
