Avon Naturals Raspberry Moisturizing Body Yoghurt

Avon Naturals Raspberry Moisturizing Body Yoghurt
Advantages: A nice, thick and emollient cream.
Disadvantages: Lid could be better.
I do feel that I deserve the occasional pampering session, so from my local Avon representative I do tend to purchase a reasonable amount of what my husband would deem crap per month! The product I will now review, in my humble opinion is not a treat item, it is an essential daily used product.
The product I will now review is - "Avon naturals renewing raspberry body yoghurt"
I have always had quite leathery skin, especially on my legs. The daily shaving routine that I have to follow has stripped any remaining moisture away, so I find that I have to slather a good amount of cream on to take away the itchy sensation. Now if I have to do this, and I have never been a girlie girl revelling in this sort of behaviour, I do think that a nice food smelling product is always welcomed.
Before I have any silly comments about applying creams that smell of lamb roast dinners....mmmm, I think I may have found my niche in the market, I in fact mean fruit food smelling creams.
I am a complete sucker for these scented creams, anything that leaves me salivating at the smell is perfect, the fact that this product is called a "body yoghurt" was the clincher!
The pot is a reasonably generous size, holding 200ml of the cream. There is very little information on the pot, this is one down side to Avon products. The brief bit of information is simply the products name, brand name and the flavour, which is of course raspberry.
On the back of the pot I was surprised to find a little more information, this being that this contains bio seed complex, pure raspberry extract and yoghurt powder, known to rejuvenate and soften the skin.
There is finally a sentence to explain the application method and the fact that this not a food stuff, so please don't eat it!.......Buggar!
The lid is a screw lid, with a very small amount of threading, this may seem a strange thing to point out, but this being the case I find it hard to screw the lid back on, especially when I have got some of the cream on my hands, making it nigh on impossible.
When you first come to use it beneath the lid you should find a very secure foil lid, of course if this is missing then it should be returned to your representative immediately.
When the lid is removed you will notice a nice full pot of product, there is hardly any space left within, ok, so far I'm impressed.
The smell is the first thing you will notice. The smell is a nice creamy scent with only a hint of raspberry, I was initially disappointed with the scent but this develops on application giving it a much fruitier scent.
I do tend to put far to much cream on and then it takes me ½ hour to rub it in, so I tentatively removed a finger full and emulsify between my hands, this is to aid the absorption as the cream will be that little bit closer to your body temperature.
The cream is actually a bit thicker than I first thought, as you rub onto the skin, the cream changes colour from the blush pink that it is in the pot, through to a white colour just before it disappears, as mentioned earlier the scent of raspberries seems to intensify as you rub it in.
I only needed a small amount to feel that it had made a drastic difference to my skin quality. I seem to have fewer lumpy bumpy bits, that a lifetime of shaving seem to encourage and my skin is very smooth and soft.
I can apply the cream in the morning after my shower and my legs still feel soft and moisturised at night, with other creams i have used I normally have to re-apply some at tea time to take away the tight and itchy feeling that develops during the afternoon.
These were bought on offer from Avon, I never tend to buy things from there at full price, they usually have an offer on them the month after!
These cost me £1.50 a pot, these are also occasionally on a buy one get one free offer. The other "flavour" I bought was blackberry body yoghurt, though I do recall there being at least one other available.
