My Avon Skin Care Self-Care Package Has Arrived!

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream

Happy Monday everyone! How are you doing? Hope you’ve had some good news your way. Seems like things are finally moving in a more positive direction. So happy!

And speaking of happy, I was so happy to receive my very own care package from Avon the other day. I went with a skin moisturizing theme for my package. It’s always comforting to have soft, well moisturized skin all over.

And in my care package, my number 1 must-have item was The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. I LOVE this so much. I had ran out, and decided to wait till the next campaign to order more. Big mistake. It was horrible being without it! I’ll not make that mistake again. But anyway… I wanted to show you how this incredible oil/cream formula arrives, and what you’ll experience upon opening.

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream with Essential Oils

Can you see that there is a top layer of essential oils? Underneath is the cream formula. Do not worry, the top layer is not runny. It has more of a light gel consistency. That’s one of the really cool features of this oil blend facial cream.

Here is Avon’s full description:

The Therapy Skin Care
Hand-blended essential oils are derived from a 200-year-old formulation of flowers, leaves and fruits to keep skin feeling nourished and looking younger.

BENEFITS
• Leaves skin visibly smooth and glowing with essential oils that provide an all-in-one blending formula of anti-aging + hydration + nourishing
• Sandalwood (anti-aging), avocado (moisturizing) and palmarosa leaves (nourishing)

Fresh Oil Carrier Technology
The secret is in the formula! Low temperature technology is used to meticulously blend the top and bottom layers to deliver deep moisture and a smooth hydration barrier on the skin’s surface.

KEY INGREDIENTS
• Sandalwood – Anti-aging; Used as a medicinal plant because of its anti-aging and rejuvenation properties.
• Avocado – Hydrating; Excellent for creating a long-lasting moisture barrier on skin and preventing moisture loss.
• Palmarosa – Nourishing; Delivers vitality and elasticity. Especially effective for treating and regenerating skin that’s damaged from the sun.

TO USE
Use AM and PM as necessary. On first use, blend oil and cream with spatula provided. Use on cleansed skin, following any treatments.

And here’s how the cream looks after blending:

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream – Stir to Mix the Formulas

You only have to blend it the one initial time. It stays together as a very rich, but light cream. This goes into my skin very well and is not greasy in the least bit. My skin drinks it up. I just dab it all over – a bit on my cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, and neck areas and then rub in all over in light circular motions. I like to follow up with the Green Goddess Facial Oil. A little of this goes a long way, and helps with any red blotchiness as it calms and eases the skin.

And for my other skin care items,

Skin Care from Avon

I decided to also treat my hands, feet and lips to some extra moisturizing. My hands have been really dry lately, so I oped for the Avon Care Silicone Glove Hand Lotion. This formula is protective and locks in moisture. It really has worked for me. My hands feel so much better when I’m wearing it. And when I wash my hands, I can still feel it. And bonus – It comes safety sealed.

Avon Care Silicone Glove Hand Lotion is Safety Sealed

For my feet, I went for the maximum strength Cracked Heel Cream in Avon’s Footworks line. I have a small area that is beginning to cause an issue, so I thought I’d give this foot cream a try.

Cracked Heel Cream

This is very calming and comforting for sure. I will be keeping this on hand all the time. Just think when Summer hits and we’ll all be wearing sandals and out in the sun and surf. This will really come in handy. So you may want to stock up and be ready. Avon has a full line of foot creams, here’s a link so you can browse and find a formula perfect for your foot care needs.

And for some extra lip moisture,

Avon’s Moisture Therapy Lip Treatment

Avon’s Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Lip Treatment. Wow, that’s a mouth-full! Haha! But seriously, this is some serious moisture for lips, and it’s fragrance free, which I love for a lip treatment. I was actually quite surprised at how light the formula is. I was expecting something perhaps a bit more heavy feeling, but this is really light and easy to wear.

So there you have it! My very own skin care, self-care package! I love my Avon products so much and find that I gain even more favorites the more I try different ones.

I hope you curate a fabulous self-care package all your own. I’d love to see pictures of what you get!

And don’t forget Mom — Mother’s Day is coming up very quickly now, and hopefully you’ll be able to see and hug your dear Mother by then. Put together a fabulous care package for her. Here’s a link to Avon’s Mother Day Gift Guide. No excuses now!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This week holds a lot of excitement. Campaign 11 begins officially Wednesday, so I have a lot of goodies to share with you. There is a lot of new products being released. Not only in Campaign 11, but in the campaigns after that as well. Can’t wait to share it all with you!

Till then, be safe, feel good, and always be fabulous and follow your joy!

Treat Yourself to The Therapy Oil Blending Cream

Moisture Therapy for Dry Skin

Avon Moisture Therapy for Intensive Healing

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed some beautiful weather.

And speaking of weather – it’s that time of year for the dry skin blues. But, you’re in luck, it doesn’t have to be. I’d like to share some of my already lotion faves plus some new lotion rock stars that I’ve added to my skin regime recently.

And of course these are all Avon lotions. Avon is definitely a skin care super star and these products have been such a comfort and a joy to me. If you follow me on my social media you may recall that I had a nasty fall in November. I’ve been on the mend, and am doing much better now – thank goodness!

I had two areas on my right leg that received injuries. My knee received a deep gash, and I also scraped my leg close to my ankle. My knee was my main concern, but I treated both wounds the same. My knee eventually got better, but the scrape got bigger and much worse. I ended up having to go to a Dermatologist for this issue and it seems that I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic I was using. But getting to where I’m going with my story, using the Avon Moisture Therapy on my legs has been such a comfort – not on my wounds, but around the wound area and my complete leg area actually – it really helped my skin feel so much better. I had ordered some of the little holiday lotion sets that Avon was offering during the holiday season to give out, and I kept the Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing Lotion for hands, so that was the one that I used initially and it helped my skin so much, that I ordered the Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing Body Lotion and Cream. They are of a different consistency than the Hand Lotion, they are more creamy, which works very well for going right into my skin with no greasy residue at all. That was an important factor for me in my healing – that the lotion would work into my skin quickly – I had limited mobility lotioning up my legs since I could not bend my knee at first, plus the areas were sensitive so I did not want to rub very hard.

Buy One, Get One of Your Choice Free!

Another fabulous thing about these Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Lotions is that they are great for sensitive skin. They are not perfumed. And that is also an issue that came up for me during this ordeal. The area on my leg that was allergic to the antibiotic lotion was triggered into some kind of eczema episode, so I had to be careful what type of lotion I used, and it definitely had to be very moisturizing and also unscented. Both of these babies fit the bill perfectly and I will continue to use both of these body lotion products. They both work awesomely – it would just be a matter of preference. The lotion pump is great. I like that I can walk by and easily get lotion for my hands or whatever on the fly. The jar of cream is great as well. It’s very creamy and luxurious feeling. I like to sit on my bed and open the jar and enjoy using this on my skin right after a shower or bath – And speaking of baths — I was finally able to take a bath for the first time in over 2 months – hooray!! I definitely needed help getting up and down – my knee caps are still a bit sore, but I did it! What an awesome feeling – You just don’t realize how much the little pleasures in life mean sometimes until you’re unable to enjoy them. A bubble bath!! With my favorite Avon Vanilla Bubble Bath!! I was so excited. I had a full bottle of my Vanilla Bubble Bath that I had just purchased back at the beginning of November, and it just sat there, waiting for me… But we finally got to connect again – Yay!

Now — another comfort and joy — and you know I’ve talked about Avon’s foot lotion before:

Avon Foot Works Deep Moisturizing Cream

Well, let me tell you, this has been a great great comfort to me in my recuperation as well. My husband would rub my feet for me since I couldn’t bend my knees to reach my feet — Awwwww….. He’s been so sweet and kind to me through all this.

I usually use the Avon Foot Works Deep Moisturizing Cream, but this last time I ordered I decided to also try the Intensive Moisture Foot Cream, it says that it’s safe for Diabetics too (if any of you may need a special diabetic foot cream). I love them both! I’ve been using them both, and they both rub into my skin very easily – they both make my feet feel sooooo much better. The only difference I can detect is the aroma. They both have a very light aroma. The Deep Moisturizing Foot Cream has a very pleasant (kind of floral) aroma and the Intensive Moisture Foot Cream has a very light peppermint aroma. I highly recommend both of these – If you have a health issue perhaps go with the Intensive Healing one, but other than that – perhaps the scent would sway you one way or the other. Click Here to find the Intensive Moisture Therapy products on my Avon website – you’ll see that there is an Intensive Body and Heel trio listed for 8.49 – it’s a $20.00 value – that’s so awesome! It has body and foot cream. Also, there is a special right now on the Intensive Healing and Repair products – Buy 1 get one of your choice for FREE! Wow!

Avon Moisture Therapy Calming Relief Hand Lotion

And you know I cannot talk about awesome lotions without mentioning my favorite hand cream, Avon’s Calming Relief Hand Cream. I keep a couple of these babies on hand (haha!) at all times. Again, unscented, and this has oatmeal to provide great relief to your dry hands – easy to rub into the skin, and not greasy. Perfect combo. I am happy to report to you that this is on sale right now for $2.50 a tube – regular price is $6.00. Here is a link to the Hand Creams page – they’re all $2.50 right now! Get stocked up for sure!

I think I’ll wrap this segment up with my favorite facial moisturizing routine as well – Cannot leave your face out in the cold… I know – boooo…

Avon x The Face Shop

I’m in total love with the Avon x The Face Shop’s new Rice Water Bright Foaming Facial Cleanser and The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. The Rice Water Bright Cleanser is made using – rice water! The milky white water is enriched with vitamins A, B & C, ceremide and minerals, and this helps your skin feel moisturized and look radiant. This does have a very nice light scent – I was concerned about it having a scent, but it has not irritated my skin, and my face feels really good after washing with this.

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream contains Sandalwood, Avocado and Palmarosa. Upon receiving it you will see that it has a layer of cream, and a layer of oils. They send a spatula for you to blend your formula. Once it’s blended, it stays blended. This is made from a 200-year-old formulation of flowers, leaves and fruits that help keep your skin feeling nourished and looking younger. It goes right into the skin very easily and is not greasy or heavy. It feels quite luxurious actually. This is lightly scented as well, and again, I’ve not had any issues with it being lightly scented. You can read a complete list of ingredients here.

I hope you find the perfect Moisture Therapy for all of your skin’s needs and that it will also bring you great comforts and joy. Having moisturized skin means so much and feels so great.

Till next time, stay fabulous, well moisturized, and follow your joy!
