My take on the product
The product comes in a 40 gm packaging, in a glass jar with a square bottom and a black plastic screw on lid. I was sent a smaller 10 gm round bottom glass jar sample for review purposes. The packaging is quite sturdy but being tub packaging, one needs to dip the fingers inside to scoop out the product. Since I like keeping my nails slightly long, I don’t prefer tub packaging as the product always gets under the nails! Moreover, its not too hygienic as well. It would be much more convenient if the product came in a tube packaging. Apart from this, I find the packaging much better than the other Omved products I’ve tried which had a flimsier packaging and were not fit for travel. This little tub has been my travel companion and I’ve not had any problems of the bottle opening or cracking like some other products.
The concept of this multi-purpose moisturizing cream is similar to the Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream. Its an intense moisturizer meant to soothe dry/irritated/rough areas of skin. However, its not as effective as the Elizabeth Arden cream.
The product has a thick creamy texture which is non-greasy, spreads easily and quickly absorbs completely into the skin. It does give instant hydration to the skin but I did not find it effect on actually flaking/chapped skin. Its good for dryness at best and can be used on the face, hands as well as the body for some instant relief. I’ve used it on my cuticles which were feeling a little dry and it does hydrate them. I’ve tried it on the face as a night cream and it quickly absorbs into a non-greasy finish, gives good hydration and makes the skin soft and supple. It has an immediate softening effect on the skin which I really like. I have some dryness around the nose area which is quite stubborn and very few products work on it, one of them being the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream. This cream did help a little bit but did not eliminate the flaking completely.
The product has a very natural fragrance which I really really like! I’m not sure which it smells like but its a very therapeutic, healing scent which might be chamomile (as it is mentioned as one of the major ingredients). This is one of the major reasons I like using it on my cuticles, I like my hands smelling like this scent.
Omved products are free from parabens, sulphates and synthetic fragrances.
The GOOD about Omved Intense Moisturizing Cream :
- Sturdy packaging, safe for travel
- Spreads and absorbs easily
- Does not leave greasiness behind
- Gives instant hydration to dry skin
- Makes the skin softer/more supple
- Multi purpose
- Has a soothing fragrance
- Contains natural ingredients/free from parabens
The NOT-SO-GOOD about Omved Intense Moisturizing Cream :
- Tub packaging – unhygienic
- Not effective for flaking/extremely dry or chapped skin
Omved Intense Moisturizing Cream is a instant hydration booster that can be applied on any part of the body to relieve dryness. The creamy texture spreads and absorbs easily giving a non-greasy finish and softer, more hydrated skin. Its relieves dryness but I would nt say its effective on flaking/chapped skin, the moisture level it provides needs to be improved upon to fulfil that claim. I like the multipurpose nature of the cream, the non-greasy finish and the soothing fragrance!
