I am generally quite particular about what I put on my face, and for the past few years or so I have been using Avon care rich moisture range on my face as it is gentle, and really cheap! Ages ago now Avon had an offer on these tubs so I have about 3 lined up ready to use as they take me ages to get through!
The face cream comes in a simple blue and green tub, with a basic label and has a screw top deep blue lid. The lid is easy to open and secure, so no fuss about trying to get into it! I prefer tubs, as it is really easy to dip a hand in and get cream with ease - being able to wipe the tub clean also means no wastage!
The colour of the face cream is white with a slight green tint to it and smells quite neutral with a soft perfumed smell. The texture of it is not particularly solid, it is quite light and gentle, and has a slightly whipped texture to it. It's slightly runny so that if you were to drop the tub, guaranteed, the face cream would all plop to the floor! However, I do not mind this consistency too much and it doesn't feel all watery and like a waste of money.
The face cream is really quite soft and gentle upon application on my skin and it absorbs in really easily leaving my face feel well nourished and moisturised. After washing my face, it always feels really dry and strained, and I feel this cream helps to restore natural moisture and gentleness to my skin. It isn't greasy and doesn't leave my face shiny so it strikes a really optimum balance. A little of this cream actually goes a really long way, as I merely dip 2 fingers in and gather a bit on the tips and this is more than enough to apply all over my face - so the longevity of the tub is really worth the 99p I paid as it lasts ages!
Overall, I love this face cream and have had no problems using it. It doesn't irritate or have any harsh qualities, but is a gentle, neutral face cream which is cheap and helps my skin retain moisture and is a brilliant base for when I apply makeup. It prevents my face feeling dry all day, leaves my face soft and smooth and a 200ml tub only costs me 99p! (When it was on offer in the brochure I should add!) I couldn't ask for much else, so I would recommend this.
I bought this one day when there was an offer on of "Buy something off this page and recieve this for free" The item for free was something I had wanted to buy but didnt want to waste £10 on if it was no good so saw this cream for £1.50 and thought it would get used and that way I could get the other item free!
When I got the cream I thought I would try it as it was Winter and I suffer from severe dry skin in the cold months and it was driving me mad. It is a large pot and was surprised how big for the price. It has a slight smell nothing to over powering though and the cream is nice and light.
When I first got some out I did get quite alot out onto my hand thinking it would be enough for my whole face but was VERY surprised to find that a little went a very long way! I had tons left on my hand so used it as a body lotion.
The following day I couldnt get over how soft my skin felt and when I applied my makeup-the tell tale time when the flakes would appear-there were none! I was so shocked that this £1.50 cream that I only bought for something free had done an amazing job.
I have since been given very expensive creams for my birthday and when using them they had very strong smells , felt greasy and actually gave me more dry skin then I started out with so I went straight back to this one. I used it most days and it lasted me at least 3 months.
This is now the only face moisturiser I will use!
AVON CARE RICH MOISTURE FACE CREAM
OK, so another review about an Avon product.
Yes, it's true - I have way too much stuff from Avon.
I bought this from Avon at the very low price of 99p around Christmas time, so my version of the cream has red Christmas style packaging which adds a nice touch in Winter time but now that it is coming to summer I would prefer to have a more summery looking tub in my creams drawer.
As an Avon product you can order this from your representative if you have one, or if you don't you could try the Avon shop online.
This is normally £4 from Avon and if you are thinking of getting this then now is the time, as they have an offer on which is buy one get one free, so you can buy this and something else from the Avon care range.
DOES IT WORK?
I believe this does work very well and I would recommend it as my skin always feels very soft after using it. It also leaves my skin looking bright and not at all dull. It is a really great face cream at a really, really great price which I definitely recommend.
I use this nearly all the time as a moisturiser and it does exactly the job I want it to. If you're looking for something anti ageing or that gets rid of spots, though, then this won't be the product that will do this for you.
What it does it leave your face feeling soft and very moisturised, and not only feeling gorgeous but looking it to. As Avon very often say, be kind to your skin and even kinder to your purse and this product fits exactly this description.
The tub has 250ml in and has lasted me a very long time. A little goes a long way when putting this on.
I like Avon products, very much so and some are not cheap but reasonably priced, some are dirt cheap and their prices are constantly dropping for a couple of brochures which is good.
*PRODUCT & PRICE*
This moisturiser however was on offer for £1.50, the usual price is about £3.50 but it is constantly all over the place. Over the passed 12 months I have tried about four different moisturisers as I have a very dry patch under my chin and a dry patch under my left eye/on my cheekbone. Some moisturisers hydrate my face but not quite get these dry patches. I thought I would try this, so it arrived and you get a lot more than you would with other moisturisers with this tub. 200ml and it is quite viscous. It is in a deep, wide tub that easily fits in the hand, the tub is a mix of dark blue, green and baby blue blended colours. The moisturiser itself is an off-white colour (which does not make a difference to me but some review seekers insist on a nice-coloured product, it is going to be absorbed anyway!). On unscrewing the lid you are met with the product straight away, no hard-to-peel foil lid that comes apart in your hands and if you shake the tub gently the moisturiser wobbles a bit like jelly but is of a smooth creamy consistency.
It left a greasy residue on my face, although it absorbed quickly and my face was just like with any other moisturiser. It gets the dry patch on my chin and under my eye just slightly so they are not that dry anymore, but I can still feel a bit of dryness on my skin after use. The greasy feel goes after a minute but it is quite sticky and I reckon it feels exactly the same as rubbing chocolate spread onto your face, except more absorbent. So this is no good for people wanting to put their make-up on ASAP after application. I go to the gym three times a week and I discovered that I was sweating more from the forehead, practically dripping wet, despite doing the same work out. When I used my old moisturiser again it stopped, turns out this moisturiser cannot withstand much heat or contact with your own bodily fluid! I do not think this moisturiser gets along with sweat or heat so it is not a summer or exercise moisturiser!
I am going to try Avon SOS moisturiser instead and hope it works better.
There are two things I want from a moisturiser, 1. That it leaves no dry or greasy/oily patches on my face it, 2. That I can put make up over it on the rare occasion that I do. This moisturiser did not make it to the second point because frankly it cannot do the first one. The after feel of putting a moisturiser on after washing my face must feel like my pores can breathe, despite this moisturiser getting a bad review from me, it does do this! Some other products moisturise and keep well, but just after you have washed your face you do not want to rub in that layer of morning scum in again!
I have tried a few items from the Avon range of creams and lotions and some of them have been good whereas some of them are not worth the money.
One item that I bought recently was the Avon rich moisture face cream. I had not tried this cream from Avon before so I was looking forward to seeing if it helped the dry skin on my face. I do not have eczema or anything but I need to moisturise my face every day or I get patches of flaky skin which is horrible to look at.
The Avon rich moisture face cream comes in a nice looking tub. It does look to me like an economy or value brand of product but this doesn't bother me too much. The tub is a green and blue colour with a darker blue lid. The tub is made of plastic and is 200 ml in size which is bigger than other sizes of tubs of cream that I have bought recently.
The usual price for the cream is £3.50 for the 200 ml tub but when I ordered the cream it was on a special offer and I managed to buy it for only £1.50 so I was pleased at this lower price.
The lid for the tub screws off and inside the tub is a very thick looking cream. I can smell the cream as soon as I have opened the tub.
I think that the cream is too thick because it is difficult to rub it all into my skin. I think that the cream feels too greasy and I do not like the feeling of it on my skin. The smell is not unpleasant but it is a little strong and I can smell it once I have rubbed the cream on to my face.
The cream did help the dried out skin on my face so I think it is a good moisturiser but I did not like how it made my skin feel. I thought that I have tried better creams for around thee same price from other brands.
The Avon rich moisture cream did not cause any spots breakouts or any bad effects on my face except I did not like the feeling of it on my skin and I thought it felt cheap.
I would not buy this cream again although it does give good value for money so if anybody has extremely dry skin and is on a tight budget this cream might be good for them.
I have been using it as a hand cream instead of a face cream so that I can use up what is left in the tub. I have gave up with using it on my face but for my hands it does ok.
I bought a tub of this the last time it was on offer and use it every sunday night. Do I use it any other night? No. Why not? Just because. I find this a good face cream, but I have oily skin that tends to throw a wobbly now and again, so I like to use a face cream on a sunday night after I have a bath, as I don't work mondays, so on monday morning my face is nice, soft and has a nice sheer, but if this throws up a couple of blotchy patches then it is usually better for tuesday if that makes any sense.
This cream is specially for Dry Skin. It is a rich moisturiser and has vitamin E. The cream comes in quite a flat round tub with a twisty blue lid. When you open the tub it has a peel back foil, which I just peeled back a bit to let me into it. The cream is quite thick and you only need a little bit to go a long way. The cream is white and doesn't have much scent to it. I think it smells slightly like Nivea in a way, just a nice fresh cream-y scent. The tub obviously lasted me quite a while just using it once a week, but I think if you were using this every day it would last anything up to a month.
The tub is 200ml and normally costs £3.50. In the current Avon book it is a bargain £1 per tub, but that Avon book goes away for order today, so i'm not sure of the price in the new book. If you have an Avon rep in your area then you can order back a book, so you still have 3 weeks to take advantage of this great price.
When there is a lot of items on offer for £1 from Avon, what I do as an Avon rep is to order a mix of things that costs £1 each in the Avon book and my husband takes it to his work to see if anyone wants to buy it. I still make the same commission this way, but I can end up getting a few sales from people that don't normally order. This face cream was a big hit last time, as although there is office women at his work, my husband works as a bin man, so a lot of his colleagues bought this, since they are out in all weather and they wanted to help the cracks in their face - sorry couldn't think of any other way to put it lol!
A good all rounded purchase and a brilliant price just now
I bought this from Avon (you don't say!) last summer when it was on offer at half price, meaning I paid just £1.75 for 200ml. It normally sells for £3.50 for 200ml which is still extremely cheap for face cream.
I bought it because I was looking for a cheap holiday moisturiser and for less than £2 I figured it was worth a try.
It comes in a grass-green and sky-blue pot with a royal blue lid. The pot is made of plastic and it did not come boxed (but I wouldn't expect it to at that price!). The cream itself is mid-thickness and white in colour.
It contained botanical extracts and Vitamin E 'for smooth silky soft skin' (quoted from the pot). As you can see by the name it claims to give rich moisturisation. You apply it by rubbing it into your face and neck.
Well despite buying it last summer it is still sitting in my beauty box with not even a quarter gone. And that is not because it is super-economical and you only need to use a microscopic dot each time!
It smells a bit too chemical for my liking but that is not something that necesssarily would put me off if the product itself were fantastic.
Sadly, it is not. Of course, for £1.75 (or £3.50) you could hardly expect it to be all-singing all-dancing and I really did not have particularly high expectations of it. But no matter how small an amount you rub in, it leaves your face looking greasy and shiny.
It is OK to use overnight as it has soaked in by the morning, but what about the rest of the time? It left my face looking greasy throughout the day when I was on holiday and then I could not use it at all after my evening shower (before dinner) because I no longer had my hair pinned back and it made my side-swept fringe look at though it had been dipped in a deep-fat fryer just for lying on my forehead. Clearly this was no use to me at all...
I would not buy this again and will not even come close to finishing the pot. I am just glad its only a couple of pounds I wasted on it.
At my time of life it is essential to rub on as many creams, lotions and potions as possible in a desperate effort to remain just looking human never mind good. One of the most recent things I have tried is the Avon Care Rich Moisture Face Cream and not with great results it has to be said.
This cream is fairly inexpensive but still not good value for money because it fails to live up to its promises. This particular cream has been around for a long time but I only recently tried it, the 200ml pot cost me £3.50 and having used it all I can honestly say I have used much better moisturising creams in the past some more expensive but others on a even keel price wise.
I used it morning and night after washing my face but where other creams kept me moisturised throughout the day or kept me feeling smooth skinned throughout the night this one seemed to have a much lesser time span.
I also felt that if I applied just a little too much it made my skin feel a bit greasy and it seemed very hard to rub in even when only a slight amount was used.
The plus side to this cream is certainly its price but the negative side of it is the longevity of it and the overall results. It is not the worst moisturising cream by far but equally not the best and certainly not one I would be in a hurry to recommend.
This is my daughter's regular facial moisturiser so if I ever run out of my own between Avon deliveries then this is what I will use. I do not use it regularly purely because I have mature skin and need to take extra care of it with peptides and a vitamin complex designed to target signs of aging. As a plain moisturiser this is absolutely fine though.
Avon Care Rich Moisturiser Face Cream comes in a 200ml pot and costs £3.75. It is frequently on offer for half price or 3 for £5 which makes it an amazing budget product. I like that this has a nice thick texture to it which I didn't expect when I first tried it as usually cheaper products are thinner, but this simply is not.
This is easy to use by dipping my fingers into the pot and when I massage it into my skin it only takes a few minutes to absorb. I like that this leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated without any oily residue and that it sinks in quite quickly so I can get on with applying my make up soon after use.
I think this is ideally suited to those who want something simply for a night cream or for everyday use on younger skin that does not need added protection from anti-aging products and the like. It is cheap, effective and easy to use. Because it does not have extra properties I have awarded it four stars but for the price I think it is really an excellent product.
I have tried various moisturisers in the past and they have ranged from cheap through to expensive. I always come back to the cheap version from Avon because it suits my skin and a pot lasts me ages.
Avon's rich moisture face cream has been around in the catalogue for years. The packaging has changed dramatically over the years, but the basic pot has stayed almost the same.
The moisturiser comes in a round pot with a screw top lid. The pot is very easy to open, but I can never put the lid back on until I have washed my hands as it proves too difficult after applying the moisturiser.
It comes to you in a simply designed pot with no frills just basic information provided on the outside. What can you expect for such little money?
The moisturiser is part of the Avon Care range which is their budget end of products available. You will usually find offers on these products as well. A 200ml pot usually retails for £3.50 but it's on offer at time of writing for half price.
The pot is generously filled, and when you open it for the first time you can smell a nice fresh delicate fragrance. There is nothing overpowering about the moisturiser, but you will be able to smell you have applied something to your face.
This product is claimed to be light and non greasy formula which is good for regaining the moisture balance in your skin.
I always use this after washing my face, but usually more so at night rather than the morning. You don't need to apply a lot to get maximum cover, and if you do apply too much I find you will need to wash it off as it doesn't sink into the skin very quickly.
As it doesn't sink in very quickly I am always conscious of not putting too much on. I always apply this with my fingers as I find it easier to massage into my skin.
For an after effect I find this moisturiser gives my skin a fresh feeling and it does feel slightly soft after an hour or so. By the following morning I wouldn't have known I had put anything on my skin, but I don't expect this to work miracles.
I find this moisturiser is great to helping to remove make up if I have run out of makeup remover, as it seems to act as a base to lift the underlying makeup. I don't tend to do this very often but in an emergency I'll try anything.
This moisturiser contains Vitamin E which is used to promote smooth skin. It's designed to be used on a dally basis, and is a great staple product for the bathroomshelf, especially when money is getting harder to find for luxuries.
