It must have been a while ago when I first started dating my current boyfriend possibly 2010 when I gave him a general Avon pack for either valentines or part of his Christmas present as at the time he was living with a pack of students who seemed to use up and steal everything he had from shampoo to his plug in electric heater. It was this point I said to him you have to keep your room locked and thanks to this his moisturiser lasted for almost the entire year due to him using it sparingly.
The packaging as such I am pretty sure has changed slightly these days but the contents are still pretty much the same and he does seem to like the stuff since it has virtually no smell at all and he does not wear after shave or smelly things. It is a large bottle now 750mls at the time of my last purchase I think at full price it was £3 but Avon always does have offers on and I got it for around £1 which is pretty decent considering the quality. As with a lot of Avon products now though as the packaging has changed so has the price, it is now the same weight but is now available with a pump and has gone up in price by £1 at full price while we still have some of last years remaining or maybe from the year before.
The consistency I will warn you is more like a lotion than a cream, it is white and slightly watery it isn't the richest, I think it is more suitable for people who want a top up for your hands or anywhere on your body really and who have normal to oily skin if you need something for dry skin or similar I would look more specifically at the Solutions or Planet Spa range that are richer and are more specialised at helping people with different skin types. In saying that it isn't the strongest I still found it a better texture than the simple equivalent and it does average out costing less than the big brands for a general lotion. I also break out if there are any strange ingredients in a beauty product and at times have used it on my back and legs and have seen no irritation which is great for me as some products have led to me breaking out in large red welts or really dry flaky skin which really is not pleasant.
So overall if you are after something that is really thick, colourful and smelly this may not be for you and you would be better with something from the planet Spa range, however if you are after something simple, delicate, unscented, unisex that you can use on a budget for multipurpose then this is pretty good stuff, it also lasts ages.
I'm reviewing my Avon Care rich moisture body lotion.
Mine was part of a selection I was given at Christmas. I'm told it costs around £5 but can often be on offer for as little as 99p.
I started using this handy gift during the heat wave as an after sun moisturiser when my E45 was running down rapidly .
***USING and MY OPINION***
This lotion comes in a really big 400ml light blue bottle with a dark blue flip top cap.
The cap is broad and flat, therefore ideal for storing the bottle upside down to get the final dregs from the bottle as it runs down.
Because it is a lotion rather than a cream it is quite runny and is the usual white.
There is a fragrance which I'd describe as rather generic to most after sun or basic moisturising products and quite akin to the odour from sun lotions and creams as well. Lightly medicinal/botanical but not unpleasant at all.
Using is dependent on your need and you can have it as daily care ,which is what it is sold as, or like me you can opt to use it as an after sun skin moisture replenishing tool .
It is very easy to apply. The dispensing hole is a decent size so you don't need to squeeze hard to get the lotion out and gentle stroking is sufficient to get it sinking into the skin .......or it can be massaged in more thoroughly if you prefer that.
It boasts containing "botanical extracts and Vitamin E", and the fragrance is indeed vaguely botanical.....like standing in a garden of green shrubbery or walking in a wood.
To be honest I hadn't thought I'd use this gift so soon, but I hadn't allowed for looking after two toddlers and looking to their needs. I find myself using my own supplies of toiletries etc to ensure their needs are met. So this bottle of moisturising lotion has taken a real beating from all of us during the heatwave. For my personal use it has been excellent and is something I can apply and use as a light massaging aid on tired legs as well as on sun-kissed exposed areas.
I like using it on the toddlers after their bath too, and neither child has had any negative reaction to it. I find the massaging style application calms the terrible two down as well, and is a good antidote to the bath time hyper-activity giving them a chance to wind down.
Could be used for 'relaxing' foot rubs, but not by me. Foot rubs are my idea of hell. Do not touch my feet. Ever !
My husband also uses this, so it isn't in the least 'girlie' .
In conclusion, it isn't a super-duper-must-have, but I can't fault it as a decent moisturiser ,so I think 4 stars fair. One removed for the rather high full price and the fact that there are better more intense and pleasantly fragranced moisturisers around.
Would I recommend it ? Yes. But I wouldn't pay the full price. I'd say watch for it on offer. If it is on at 99p or even £1.99 then I'd grab it. That is a good price for a large bottle like this (400ml) from a decent brand name .
Thank you for reading ~~~myloh.
Ages ago, when browsing through an Avon brochure I found a great special deal on this Rich Moisture family cream ages - a steal at 99p for a 400ml bottle! I have used the similar version in a tub so knew it would be ideal and gentle for us all to use.
It comes in a simple blue bottle, with a blue lid which sits upright. The lid is easy to open, so no fuss about trying to get into it! I usually much prefer lotions in tubs, as I can dip my whole hand in (not that I would need to) and get cream with ease, whereas with this I have to pour it in my palm.
It is for usage on face, hands and body so detailed to be very versatile. The label states it is suitable for sensitive skin (albeit not that it is designed for sensitive skin I feel I should add!) and where I have suffered from eczema in the past I have found it doesn't irritate nor cause me to react which is good.
The cream is a lightly whipped, white cream which is a bit runny, so only a little is needed to actually be used all over. To me it has a slight smell of baby lotion which is nice, and not overly perfumes so enriches my skin wonderfully.
To be honest, for 99p I really could not have asked for more from a body cream! I have always been fussy over what I put on my own skin having had eczema as a child and this has worked perfectly. It is soft, sensuous and absorbs into my skin beautifully! The smell is really subtle, and I have to say lingers well on the skin but just enough not to be overpowering and to conflict with any perfumes or body sprays I am wearing.
It is really light, not in any way greasy or sticky and leaves my skin feeling nourished. I definitely wouldn't say it leaves my skin glowing or shiny in any respect but is a amazing for an everyday moisturiser. As I have a specific face cream I do not use this on my face, but on the occasions I have it leaves my face well moisturised for the entire day and I can apply make up on top effectively.
I do not have specifically dry skin in anyway, so using this once or occasionally twice a day is sufficient usage and even with me and my partner using this cream, this 400ml bottle took ages to go down!
I would definitely recommend this cream to those wanting a lovely smelling, and brilliant usage every day cream suitable for men and women. Buying this for 99p I cannot complain so look out for it in Avon on special offers!
I have used Avon Care Rich Moisture Body Lotion several times over the last few years. I am not particularly loyal to any particular body lotion, but this one is one that I have come back to a few times, especially when money is a bit tight! A 440ml tub currently costs just £5.99 direct from Amazon which includes postage and packaging, although I have picked it up for as little as £3.99 depending on whether any offers are available.
The Avon Care Rich Moisture Body Lotion that I currently have actually comes in a tub rather than in a container like the bottle pictured above. This suits me better because I like to have complete control how much I take out of the container and I find this better to do when scooping it from a tub rather than squeezing it from a bottle. It has a screw top lid which is secure and so it's perfectly safe to transport if travelling. However, it is a little bulky and certainly too bulky to carry around in my handbag.
The actual body lotion is thick and creamy and looks fairly luxurious. To be honest, there are thicker moisturisers on the market, but I actually really like the consistency of this one because it's thick enough to feel rich but actually runny enough to spread thinly on my skin and allow easy coverage. It does need to be applied fairly liberally for optimal coverage but no matter how much is applied it does not feel heavy on my skin. Even when first applied it does not feel tacky or sticky - and it sinks into my skin very quickly and easily. Importantly it always leaves my skin feeling well moisturised and light. I would say it was more for every day use rather than heavy duty use and so if my skin is particularly dry then I tend to use something a little more intensive.
The fragrance of the lotion is pretty light and subtle also and it actually smells quite summery and fresh. It's a fragrance which doesn't try to compete with other fragrances and so if I'm wearing perfume or body spray then the lotion actually can't be smelt at all.
Overall, I do recommend this body lotion for every day use, but sometimes I do need something a little bit more intensive.
After trying a few products from the Avon Care range and deciding that I really liked them, I decided to try out one of the body lotions from the range when the body lotion I was using was close to running out. I chose the Rich Moisture Body Lotion, and the reason I decided to get this one is because I often get quite dry skin, especially in cold weather - and lets face it we get enough of that in the UK.
In the brochure the body lotion is described as 'light, non-greasy formula with fast-absorbing moisture. This sounded just what I was looking for.
It is normally £4.50 but there was an offer on it at the time I bought it, so it only cost me £2. I think this is really good value for money considering there is loads in the bottle - 400ml - which lasted me ages.
The bottle is shown in the picture provided by dooyoo. It is light blue with a dark blue lid and there is a green label on it. The design on the bottle makes it look very sort of wet, which is an indication I suppose that the body lotion is supposed to really moisturise your skin.
As I mentioned there is 400ml in the bottle, which is way more than most body lotions I use which only have about 200ml - 250ml in them. This one lasts me ages which is why I think its such good value for money.
The best time to put the body lotion on is after a bath or shower. leaves your skin feeling gorgeous. definitely reocmmend
I usually use E45 Body Lotion but I am always in the mood for a bargain, so when I was browsing the Avon online shop recently and saw this Avon Care Rich Moisture Body Lotion on special offer I couldn't resist. It normally costs £4.50 for 400 ml but it was reduced to just 99 pence, which seemed like excellent value to me, especially seeing as 500 ml of E45 costs me around £5. I decided to give it a go and see if it could compare.
The body lotion comes in a large, light blue plastic bottle with the Avon Care logo on the front in dark blue, and a green leaf which I think is supposed to symbolise the fact that the lotion has aloe vera added to it. The bottle has a blue plastic flip up top which reveals a small hole underneath through which the lotion is dispensed. This is easy enough to open but I don't find it as quick and convenient as the pump on the top of the E45 bottle.
The lotion is white and has a nice consistency, not too thick to rub in but not too runny or thin so as to be ineffective. It smooths onto the skin easily and feels cool and refreshing. The moisture from it lasts for a reasonable amount of time and it is not too sticky or greasy. It also helps my skin when it's itchy or feeling sensitive, and is nearly equal to E45 in this regard which is impressive.
However the problem with the lotion is the smell. Although at first it doesn't seem like a strong smell, it soon started to get to me. It smells like aftersun lotion which has gone off and is way out of date. The smell makes me retch and gag at the back of my throat, it is so horrible. I am trying to use up the rest of the lotion but when I do so I have to be careful not to breathe it in!
I would not recommend this but if you do want to try it then you can buy it from the Avon website or from your local representative. It is currently half price and costs £2.25.
