Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream Review

Being someone with dry skin I am always on a lookout for deeply nourishing creams and moisturizers. Since childhood I am completely committed to Boroline which is a luxuriantly rich antiseptic night repair cream that cures my dryness in a snap of a finger. Boroline and Bengalis have a deep-rooted connection. But you know what adulthood is, right? It’s worse if you are a Beauty Blogger. There are phases in our life when the blogger bug continues to bit us unless and until we go and buy a particular thing, doesn’t really matter we if at all need it or not.

Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream is such a random buy. I have heard raved reviews about this product and ‘had’ to try it. And I was already an Innisfree fan, so no need of a second thought.

Anyway, lets get into the details.. 


Rs 2000 for 50ml

Though this cream is easily available in India now, but I got this during my trip to an Innisfree store in Shanghai last year.
You can buy it from Nykaa or Innisfree stores across the country.

The cream comes in an orchid colored tub with a deep violet screw cap. The tub further comes housed in a white cardboard box. Every detail is mentioned on the box and as well as the tub. The tub is sturdy and has a very sophisticated, classy feel to it. However I hate dipping my fingers in tubs due to hygiene issues. So I keep a small spatula handy and it works fine that way.

The cream is pale pink in color and has an amazing floral fragrance. The fragrance is really soothing, calming and doesn’t irritate my sensitive nose.

The texture of the cream seems thick at first, especially when on the pot, but I was astonished to see how beautifully it melted upon touch with skin. It gets absorbed into skin with light patting. You just need a tiny amount.

Skin does feel a little sticky for the initial 10 minutes. I prefer messaging it lightly onto my skin for about 2 minutes and then wait for 30minutes before hitting the bed. That way the cream gets its time to soak in and doesn’t transfer to pillows. In the morning my skin feels soft, supple and yes, incredibly moisturized. Mostly I use it as a standalone night cream, just after cleansing, and still it works pretty fine. In the morning I wake up to a well nourished, plump and naturally radiating skin.

Sometimes I even apply this during daytime, days when I am home and my skin feels dry or itchy after the bath. The cream is so rich and once it sets in, you will love the effect on your skin.

As per the anti-aging claims, my mother-in-law, who is in her late forties currently, has been using this for the last 2 months. Her skin too feels very brightened, replenished and rejuvenated, but I don’t see any miraculous effect on her existing wrinkles, fine lines and marks. Maybe two months isn’t enough, I’ll update it once she finishes her tub. She saw the price tag and almost fainted. I am still thanking my stars that she didn’t come running towards me with her chappal or cooking spoon. No matter how much you earn, your mother will still raise brows seeing expensive things on your cupboard.

Final Thoughts and Recommendation:-
The formula is rich and is great for people with normal to dry skin. However, I wouldn’t recommend this to people with extremely oily skin, it might cause pimples. But again, it depends on the weather too, if you have oily-combination skin and stay in a place having temperature 15, then you can definitely use this; just keep the quantity in mind. 
Ohh!! Innisfree has an Orchid Gel Cream variant for oily skin as well. You can check that too. And people with extremely flaky-dry skin, you can try Innisfree Orchid Intense Cream.

I have been using this for 7 months now and loving it so far. Yes, it couldn’t replace Boroline, which is impossible, but now it has its own place in my heart and dressing table. And I am glad mommy dear in loving it as well. Otherwise ‘spending so much on a product that doesn’t work well’ could have landed me in a shopping ban by mommy forever. I am planning to buy Innisfree Orchid Intense Cream next.

  1. I want to try this, it looks so light-weight and moisturizing :)

  2. This looks like a nice moisturizing cream!

  3. Looks like it smells amazing!!!

  4. I really like the packaging on this one. So pretty! I haven't tried Innisfree. Perhaps I should!

  5. This is a nice winter option for me. I enjoy the moisture but only during the drier months for me!

  6. I'm completely out of the loop and didn't know this was a thing! I use Innisfree Olive cream at night, and just looking at your photos and description, I think it is a little thicker than the the Orchid one. Even with my combo to oily skin, that works for me. I'll have to track this down and try it out. I'm not fond of most floral scents, but orchids usually don't bother me so it may be ok.

  7. I like how you took these photos. I love orchids. I heard nice things about this Asian brand

  8. Too bad it's not better for the anti-aging, then it would have been a perfect product for me!

  9. I love that even the thicker creams from Korean brands are gel-like and "watery" rather than oily and rich.

  10. Oh wow, I didnt know orchid was good for skin!

  11. I haven't tried this but I do like Innisfree's Green Tea line! If I do try this range of products, I'd have to get the gel cream

  12. The packaging sucks me in! I haven't had the best results with overnight creams but that doesn't stop me from trying!
