Advantages: Inexpensive efficient moisturizer with natural fragrance
Disadvantages: 'Too cool for comfort' to apply straight from tub!
The Product ~ 'Skin Deep'
The 200ml plastic ivory white tub has the Avon naturals title formatted in simple Calibri with a neat picture of a vanilla pod and contents depicting the fragrant contents. The product has a twelve month shelf life. With two easy twist of the lid, the substance is revealed. Unfortunately, the soft card inner lid seems to be wedged into the base of the tub's lid, preventing it from covering the cream!
Usage Experience ~ 'Vanilla Ice Cream'
After showering, I like to choose between an array of body moisturizing lotions and creams that I keep for this purpose. From Avon's campaign brochure 15, I ordered the naturals vanilla whip as I do love this fragrance, whether as a room freshener, laundry aromatic wash or a body cream. As the purpose of such products is to lock in the moisture, it is far more beneficial to use the lotions on dampened skin, such as shortly after lightly towel drying after bathing.
1) When applying the body cream, I generally pop from the bathroom to my bedroom to towel dry, this way, I can sit on my bed to comfortably use the moisturizer as soon as I have gently dabbed myself dry, before the pores are closed.
2) As soon as I open the lid to reveal the thick creamy soft fawn blend, the vanilla fragrance wafts out in a delightfully pleasant sweet perfume. When I dip my fingers into the rich buttery emulsion, it feels particularly cool to the touch. I proceed to take up a good measure, around a tablespoon, onto my closed fingers. Because the compound is too cool for my personal comfort, I tend to rub the contents onto both hands before layering onto my body.
3) I begin by spreading the allotted amount onto segments of my skin, concentrating on each portion first. I do not use such cosmetics on my feet as I have separate products for these areas of my body. I like to start moisturizing my ankles and calves first, in turn, applying enough cream then slowly and gently smoothing in the balm with circular movements of my hands.
4) I like to ensure that I take enough time over this task as it can feel very therapeutic, quietly away from the hustle and bustle of everyday routines and task, just to enjoy timeout and not take such simple pleasures for granted. The more time that can be taken, affords extra care and benefits in the moisturizing regime. I continue to adopt the same method as performed on my lower legs, over my body. I use a separate face and neck cream therefore; I use this lotion up to my shoulders. After the process is complete, I then return to any areas, such as my knees that feel less moisturized, and apply a little more lotion.
Results ~ 'I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want--an adorable pancreas '? :~)
This gorgeously soft preparation feels so gentle on my skin, a real pleasure and effortlessly easy to apply. The aroma is far from over-whelming, with its natural flutter of essence delicately noticeable. The moistening effects of the body cream are very long lasting. While some parts of my body, like knees, front of legs and elbows dry out quicker, my arms, shoulders and torso remain hydrated until my evening shower. As for the emollient's bouquet, although I tend not to notice this after a short while, unless I hold my arm to my nose, others have commented on the agreeable odour. I love the way this lotion leaves my skin feeling velvety smooth and hydrated.
Recommend? ~ 'It is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it'!
With an unreserved yes! I certainly do extol the benefits of this light formula as a very acceptable body moisturizer that leaves the skin soft, supple and fragrant.
