Happy shopping, and remember that I always pick up your shipping tab on all orders $60+.
I’ve been having so much fun getting these thank-you gift bags out to you all this week. Thank you so much for shopping with me. I really appreciate you all very much, and I’m so happy to share the lip balm love with you.
I’ll continue to send out these customer appreciation lip balm gift bags through the entirety of Campaign 15, which will conclude this coming Tuesday, July 6, 2021. So, any orders that continue to arrive through Tuesday, I will also be sending you this gift, along with a few extra goodies (while my supplies last).
I suppose you can guess from the smile on my face that I’m loving this! But before we begin, a disclaimer. Avon does not market their famous Skin So Soft Original line as an insect repellent. They do however, have a Skin So Soft Bug Guard line that is also very popular.
Okay, now, between you and I, we all know that Avon’s Original Skin So Soft has been used for decades as an insect (especially mosquito) repellent. I remember using it back in the 80’s.
Well, since it’s been a minute since I’ve used this, and with Avon celebrating 60 years of Skin So Soft this year (I know, wow!), I thought I’d give it another try. My husband, Willie, and I have been enjoying playing croquet in our back yard quite a bit since Spring, but lately it’s been getting very uncomfortable going outside for even a few minutes to check on our little patio garden (we’re immediately swarmed). So I thought let’s give Skin So Soft a try again and see how/if it helps.
Well, I’ll tell you, I did not receive even one bite… I was wearing shorts, so I used this Gelled Body Oil on my legs and my arms, and I did not even see any mosquitos land on me. I saw a couple of other tiny bugs that usually bite, but they did not. I stayed comfortable throughout our entire game + we sat and chatted outside very comfortably afterward. Now, Willie did say he received 1 bite on the back of his leg. I applied the Gelled Body Oil to his arms but not to his legs, so I do not know how well he applied it. But still, only 1 bite the entire time is not bad at all.
And, I know you’re probably wondering, “Gelled Body Oil?”. Yep! This stuff is fabulous! I only noticed it when the spray pump bottle was no longer available due to Avon making some changes to some products (hopefully that will come back soon), but I really love this even better than the spray.
It’s just like a gelled hand sanitizer, but not runny, it’s a nice gel that stays put in your hand. I just rub my hands together and then rub it on my skin. It is not overly oily at all. It goes into my skin very well with no sticky residue, and it smells really good. Kind of an herbal/woodsy aroma. And I believe that may be it’s secret. The aroma. There are some aromas that help camouflage us from mosquitos like Citronella and Rosemary, and I personally believe it’s Skin So Soft’s aroma that is the key. Although… it did protect me from those little gnats and tiny biting bugs too, so I don’t know, except that it really works!
And bonus — it is a body oil. It makes my skin look and feel really great. It does not contain an SPF, so be aware of that. I wore it outdoors in the evening. A couple of Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard deet-free products do contain an SPF for bright sunny outdoor days.
So, Avon’s got you covered (literally) whichever way you choose to go, bug repellent wise. We can all now enjoy the outdoors in comfort and joy.
BTW, the Skin So Soft Gelled Body Oil is priced at $7.99 on my Avon website (original price $13.00). And here is a link to the entire Original Skin So Soft line-up. You can find the liquid body oil, body lotion, and lip balm. I’ve also been using my Gelled Body Oil after my bath or shower in the evening. It helps keep my skin very soft as well as keeps me protected from any mosquitoes or biting bugs that may have gotten inside. Great hint!
I’ve been hearing of people using the liquid body oil to spray around windows and doorways to keep pests out. I may need to give that a try too. Let me know if you do and how it works for you.
And remember, Avon has you covered for all of your Summer skin care, and bath and body needs. Well, for your every season skin care and bath and body needs, actually. 🙂
I have to tell you that I am truly impressed. I thought I probably would be. I absolutely love the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser, so I was very excited to see Avon release a sister product with a gentle exfoliator.
This Rice Bran Exfoliating Cleanser combines the rich, gentle foaming cleanser as in the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser, but also with a gentle exfoliator that you can use every day. So, basically, you do not have to wait and exfoliate every other day or so, but rather you can have refreshed, smooth skin each and every day.
Gentle exfoliating eliminates dead skin cells, which can make your complexion look dull and haggard, therefore brightening your complexion. Exfoliating your skin also makes it super smooth (also helps with fine lines) + the addition of the beautiful silky rich cleanser = super luxe beautiful skin.
Now your makeup is going to really look flawless when you begin with smoother skin, and if you like a glowy look, brighter skin.
I HIGHLY recommend this product to you. I have sensitive skin and I am able to use this with no problem.
Here’s a look at the cleanser. You can see the little exfoliating particles. They are really tiny.
A little of this goes a long way, and there is a LOT of this. It is a great value as well. I’ve taken a few pictures to show you the size of this tube. It weighs in at 10.1 fl oz.
Here is a comparison picture of The Rice Water Bright with a regular hand lotion tube.
“Formulated with Rice Bran that thoroughly removes dead skin cells, this moisturizing gentle exfoliating foaming cleanser helps restore bright skin complexion and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.”
“To use: Lather up a small amount with wet hands and massage onto the face with circular movements. Rinse with lukewarm water and then with cold water as a finishing touch.”
And definitely, it doesn’t take a lot. I really appreciate this around my nose area and my forehead, but it is awesome around my entire face. I feel refreshed and ready to go. I follow up my exfoliating cleanser with my favorite Physiogel Moisturizer and then sometimes a little Green Goddess Facial Oil for added radiance.
The price on this tube is regularly $15.99, but on my Avon website it is $12.99. This will last you a really long time.
I hope you get a tube for yourself and give it a try. I also still use my Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser at night. You really do not want to over-do the exfoliating. Once a day is plenty.
Both of these facial cleansers are super luxe, and totally my favorites. I’ve never used facial cleansers before that I’ve loved so much.
Till next time, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!

Hey gang! Do you love taking great care of your feet? I know I do, and it’s become even more important to me now during menopause.
As I stated in my post yesterday, I’ve been experiencing much dryer skin lately, and I really have to stay on top of the issue.
I’ve been using Foot Works by Avon for quite some time now and really enjoy how these creams moisturize and help my feet. The two I’m using right now are the Maximum Strength Cracked Heel Cream, and the Intensive Moisture Foot Cream. I know I’ve blogged about each of these foot creams in the past, but you know me, when I really love something I like to share again for those who may not have seen previous posts.
The Maximum Strength Cracked Heel Cream is wonderful to have around because it has an external analgesic and also provides a First Aid antiseptic. If your heels are cracked then this will help prevent infection and help with the pain. If not, then yay, and it will help prevent that issue. I’ve luckily not had my heels crack, but when they’re really dry they can be a bit painful, so this does help. I’ve also used this cream on other parts of my body when I’ve had a really itchy patch flare up, and this eases the issue and takes it away right away. So, definitely a great cream to have around. I order this cream just about every time I place an Avon order, so, yeah, it is a must-have item for me.
This lotion has a child-proof top since it is medicated. The tube is 2.5 fl. oz and is listed for $5.29. Here is Avon’s official description:
Transform the look and feel of dry, cracked heels. 2.5 fl. oz
BENEFITS • 24+ hours of moisturization • Provides up to 2X skin’s moisture • Helps to soften calluses • Fragrance-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free
TO USE Clean the affected area. Apply a small amount on the affected area 1-3 times daily. Cover with a sterile bandage if needed. Made in USA
This foot cream is very comforting as well. It is a thicker and creamier lotion. It is formulated for diabetics, so if you fall into that category, you may want to give this one a try. I’m using this intensive cream due to the extra dryness of my skin right now. This one has a light peppermint aroma so it’s also refreshing. This tube is 2.5 fl oz, and is listed for $4.49.
I’ve actually been blending the two of these together (this and the Cracked Heel Cream) before applying to my feet and then putting on little socks to keep the moisture in. It’s a great way to treat myself in the evenings and really makes me feel better because my feet feel so much better.
Here is Avon’s official description of this Intensive Moisture Foot Cream:
This intensive foot cream featuring Hydra6X Complex delivers gentle and effective moisturizing needed for dry feet common to diabetics. 2.5 fl. oz.
BENEFITS • Helps hydrate and condition rough, dry skin • Does not contain artificial colorants (colors, dyes or pigments) • Gentle and mild • Suitable for diabetics • Great for sensitive skin • Non-greasy • Helps deodorize feet • Dermatologist tested and podiatrist tested • Fresh peppermint scent
TO USE Rub gently onto rough, dry and callused skin. Apply twice daily, morning and night for the first 7 days. After one week, apply once a day. Or use as recommended by your physician.
Made in USA
The past few evenings I also tried putting my Skin So Soft Supreme Nourishment Coconut Body Souffle’ in my foot cream blend since it is enriched with Coconut Oil and makes the skin on the rest of my body feel really moisturized, and yeah, it helps too. You should give it a try.
For even more moisturizing power, I drop a dab of virgin coconut oil into my bath water (tepid temp. is best for dry and sensitive skin according to my dermatologist).
I try to be very mindful of everything that I do to, or put onto my skin now since this extra skin dryness has become a real “issue”, and I am very happy to share with you what I’ve found that actually works for me. I also have very sensitive skin, so I have to be mindful of products for this issue as well. The body souffle’ cream and the bar soap are lightly scented, but my skin has been just fine with that. I normally use unscented products, but these 2 coconut oil products have not been irritating thus far. If you have very sensitive skin, you may want to keep that in mind. Avon also has a fabulous new line of skin moisturizers called Physiogel that you may want to check out. This line is made for dry, sensitive skin. I use Physiogel products for my face, and they also have a body lotion.
If you’re experiencing other issues with your feet, Avon has a great line-up of Foot Works products for just about everything. There is an Overnight Renewing Cream, Lavender Softening Balm, Intensive Callus Cream, Arthritis Achy Foot & Muscle Cream, there are Pedicure Kits and Tools, and more. Here is a link to Avon’s full Foot Works line-up.
I hope you enjoyed today’s foot-care blog post and that you’re able to find the perfect product(s) for your foot needs. Happy feet make a happy me, and I’m sure it goes the same for you.
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
I’m back today with some really lovely (and powerful) goodies for beautifully moist and nourished skin. I am so loving these two and I’m very happy to share them with you.
Avon’s Skin So Soft Supreme Nourishment Body Souffle’ with enriching coconut oil is the bomb! I’ve been having very dry skin issues lately due to Menopause (fun, fun), and this has been just what I need to give my skin that extra boost of moisture it’s been craving.
As you can (hopefully) see from the picture above, the body souffle’ is a very rich body cream. The texture is quite luxurious, and even though it’s a cream, it’s made with oils, yet it’s not oily at all, and my skin is immediately moisturized. When it’s smoothed completely into my skin, my skin feels kind of “dewy” and super moist afterward, and that feeling lasts a long time.
Here is Avon’s official description:
The premium Supreme Nourishment Coconut Oil Collection enriches with superior hydration and nutrient-packed goodness for skin that feels sumptuously nourished, soft and supple skin for hours.
Our coconut water infused soufflé is rich and creamy yet light and airy. Indulge in this sweet treat that leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated all day. 6.7 fl. oz.
BENEFITS • Long-lasting nourishment of coconut oil • Light tropical scent • Rich, creamy, light and airy texture • Absorbs quickly • Leaves skin feeling soft and supple • Hypoallergenic • Dermatologist- and allergy-tested
TO USE Smooth all over body whenever needed.
Some of the other key ingredients besides coconut oil are mineral oil, coconut juice (water), and shea butter. This body souffle’ has a very light and beautiful aroma. The descriptions says it’s a light tropical scent, and it is. It does remind me of a coconut aroma. It’s just enough scent to be delightful, but it is not in any way overpowering. It is just simply very luxurious in feel and aroma.
This is lovely and moisturizing with coconut AND olive oils.
Here is Avon’s official description:
Plant-based cleanser, derived from olive oil and infused with coconut oil, moisturizes as it gently cleanses skin, leaving skin beautifully soft and delicately fragranced. Creamy, comforting coconut scent. 2.8 oz. net wt.
This bar lathers really well, and feels really good on my skin. I have a couple of extra dry areas on my skin which can sometimes be irritated by other (sensitive skin) soaps. This bar soap is wonderful, and even though it is lightly scented with a coconut aroma and not stated “for sensitive skin”, my skin really loves it.
I have to tell you, as soon as I opened the box, I was like Yummmmm…. It’s beautiful.
Okay gang, I hope you enjoyed this super moisturizing post and that you’ll give these two beauties a try for yourself. The body souffle’ is priced right now at $9.99 (reg. 16.00) and the bar soap is $1.99 (reg. $2.50), so yeah, very doable. Let me know how you like them.

I truly love what I do, and I love sharing the joy.
It will soon be my 2nd Anniversary with Avon (later this month) and I have really enjoyed the journey thus far. I am also very much looking forward to many more Avon Adventures with you!
And what a fabulous new Campaign this is. Avon is introducing a brand new skin care line called Farm RX Clean Beauty. This is a natural skin line formulated using super greens.
Vegan Skin Care Collection
with natural plant-based ingredients for healthy skin. Our innovative Slow Herb Complex™ has a blend of botanicals that thrive in dry conditions and are slowly cold-brewed to extract antioxidants for peak efficacy.
I am really excited to try this new line. If you’ve followed me here for any length of time you know I love using as much natural products as I can on my face and body, so this is definitely right up my alley.
Some of the Super Green ingredients used are Green Tea, Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli Sprouts, and Moringa Oil. Click Here to read more about the ingredients and benefits.
If you’re a huge fan of natural ingredient skin care as I am, you can give this new line a try with the new Farm RX Special Trial Kit. It’s listed for $14.99, regular price $19.00.
The Farm Rx Trial Kit includes: • Farm Rx Super Greens Cooling Gel, .33 fl. oz. • Farm Rx Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream, .33 fl. oz. • Farm Rx Bakuchiol Serum, .17 fl. oz. • Farm Rx Bakuchiol Eye Cream, .17 fl. oz.
As you see from the kit, there are also 2 Bakuchiol products in this new line. Bakuchiol is a gentle plant based alternative to retinol, and helps visibly reduce wrinkles. There is an eye cream and also a face serum. Very interesting stuff…
I hope you enjoy shopping Avon Campaign 6 and finding out more about this new skin care line. Let me know if you get a Farm RX Kit to try!
