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.
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.
• 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.
• 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.
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:
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,
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.
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.
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 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!
