HILARY SAYS REVIEW:
Looking at the ingredients of the day cream, the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th ingredients in the list are for sun protection so it will definitely offer sun protection. Rumex Occidentalis Extract is a plant extract known to reduce skin pigmentation. From the ingredients list, I will guess that Rumex is in this product at levels as low as 1%, which is a safe level to use it. I also love the fact that both products have very high levels of glycerine, which is a humectant (attracts water molecules) to help keep your skin hydrated and it’s affordable. Well-done Oriflame!
