Advantages: Cheap, quick to apply, smells lovely, leaves skin soft after a bath or shower, leaves a nice glow.
I don't use many Avon products as there is very little I like by them. I have tried lots of Avon products in the past and only a couple things I actually go back to and continue to use. A lot of the time I have been let down by Avon products as they don't do what Avon claims they do.
This is why when a friend I work with recommended I try Avon's Skin so Soft dry oil body spray, I didn't get too hyped up about it. She originally recommended it to me as I said I didn't have time to apply any fake tan after work and I was going out that night, I wish I had applied some earlier, but forgot. She suggested I use a dry oil body spray, and more specifically Avon's, as this is what she uses, and just spray some all over me and it will leave a nice glow.
I wasn't going to buy it for that reason as it isn't actually a fake tanning product and so it wasn't what I wanted. However a couple of weeks later my friend bought four bottles from somebody who does the Avon at work and gave me a bottle, telling me to try it. She had two different scents, one being original and the other is this soft & sensual one. I only smelt the soft & sensual one so I am not sure what the original is like, but I loved this one!
She sprayed one squirt onto my arm and I rubbed it in. She was right, it did leave my skin glowing, but it wouldn't make my skin appear any more tanned. I thought If I had already applied fake tan then used this dry oil spray on top it would be even better, especially for a night out! The scent is quite a floral and a very feminine one, and is very strong. Just after that one squirt I kept getting whiffs of it when my moving my arm all night. Therefore if you don't like very feminine and floral scents then I don't recommend the soft & sensual one and the original one instead, as I am guessing it won't be as strong as this.
Avon states this product locks in moisture after a bath or shower, is non-greasy and quickly absorbs into skin. For once Avon's claim is right and it does do exactly this. It doesn't look or feel greasy and just gives a nice subtle glow to your skin, but its not over the top or greasy looking at all. It also leaves my skin feeling very soft after I have used this after a bath or shower. As this is a spray it is much quicker to apply than a normal moisturiser, so if you are in a hurry but still like to moisturise after a bath or shower, then this is a very good alternative to using a cream based moisturiser.
As I have briefly mentioned already, I do also like to use this just before a night out to add a nice glow to my skin, but obviously do not use if you have just applied fake tan, as it will make that go blotchy, you will have to wait until the tan has completely dried on your skin.
I have found that as this is a spray I am using the product up much quicker than my normal moisturisers. However, I don't use this everyday and still like to use my body shop body butters or soap & glory if I have time so I making it last a bit longer. If you would use this product everyday then I believe you will go through one at least every month. They can be cheap though if bought from the Avon when they are in a promotion. At the moment these are £2 each for 150ml, instead of its usual price of £5.20. I would never pay £5.20 for this and would wait for them to be in a promotion like they are now, and just stock up on them then.
If you are using this product for the first time then I would recommend only applying a tiny bit to one part of your skin and seeing how your skin reacts to it first, as after looking at the reviews of this product on the Avon website, a lot of people seem to have had allergic reactions to it, but some of these people can still use the product, just the original one instead and not the soft & sensual.
Summary: An Avon product that actually lives up to its claim!
