Winter brings in dry flaky skin and even the oiliest of skin types like me resort to creamier formulas in moisturizers and foundations to beat the winter dryness. This winter , there were 3 products that I loved using in the daytime for the perfect dewy winter glow – Maybelline BB Cream, Inglot YSM Cream Foundation and lastly,
Oriflame Very me Peach me perfect Skin glow Tinted moisturizer.
Price : Rs 298, Currently on Offer at Rs 179
Quantity : 30 ml
Comes in 2 variants : Light and Dark. I’m reviewing the shade Light. It is slightly lighter than my NC40(MAC) skin tone.
My take on the product
I had purchased this product long back sometime in April. The packaging and claims of the product were quite tempting and I’d never tried a Tinted moisturizer before so I went ahead and bought the shade Light. I wore it a few times but in the sultry summer, this product was too heavy for my skin. It made my oily skin greasy and the ‘glow’ barely lasted a while. Moreover, I was slightly tanned and the shade Light looked a little ashy on my skin tone.
But the story in the winters is a completely different tale! This tinted moisturizer gives the right dose of hydration and coverage to my winter combination skin for an dewy everyday look. The product comes in a black tube with an orange screw on cap. The packaging isn’t expensive or classy looking but it is quite catchy!
The texture of the moisturizer is creamy and is slightly on the heavier side. It is peach tinted and contains very fine gold micro shimmer that gives the ‘glow‘. The cream is hydrating and on my combination skin, it makes my T-zone slightly oily after a few hours of wear which can be taken care of by powdering. It blends easily and leaves a slight cast behind so in flash photographs, it might show up slightly. It gives light to medium coverage. It doesn’t give enough coverage to under the eyes and other pigmentation areas like around the nose and mouth. The finish is dewy but not overly oily. The gold micro shimmer is very subtle and you wouldn’t notice it unless you look really closely in the mirror in a well lit area (under direct sunlight). It just gives a nice healthy glow to the skin. I reach out for this product when I want a natural, medium coverage, non-cakey look with a bit of a glow!
For oily skin in summers, this would be too heavy but dry/normal/combination skin types would love this for an everyday wear skin cover. One would need a sunscreen as this contains neither SPF not PA++.
The product has a mild peachy fragrance which I personally really like!
I would recommend this product to all dry/normal/combination skinned women!

I’ve worn this product in my review of Maxfactor Gloss Cube Spicy Plum. You can see the coverage and finish it gives in the close-up image below :
Oriflame Very me Peach me Perfect Skin Glow is hydrating, light/medium coverage Tinted Moisturizer that has added gold micro shimmer to add a healthy glow to the skin. Its perfect for a natural, non-cakey look that one likes for everyday wear but it doesn’t provide enough coverage for under eyes and other pigmented areas. The product is best suited for normal/dry /combination skin types though dry skinned women might need to use an added moisturizer. Not recommend for oily skin!
The gold micro-shimmer is subtle and just gives a soft glow. Its a great everyday wear skin cover, worth a try!
