      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A lucky find for me.

      What is it?

      It is a moist, cream/lotion based face mask. It is designed to be intensely hydrating and to replenish your skin with minerals - thus improving the skin's tone and radiance.

      It comes in a screwtop pot and holds 100ml. The packaging has changed many times since I started using it. The first one I had a couple fo years ago was bright orange all over, the one shown in the picture is pale blue with some orange detailing - my current pot is peachy orange with a pearlescent white lid. The font is much larger too.

      How do you use it?

      After cleansing your face, you apply a fairly liberal layer all over your face (avoiding sensitive bits such as lips and eyes). You then leave it to do its magic for about 10 minutes. You then rinse or tissue it off and hopefully have better condition skin.

      What is it like?

      It smells very citrussy (if that is actually a word) and fresh - having the fragrance surrounding your face is an enlivening experience. It smoothes on like a thick facecream and does not sting. It spreads out well. It is a peachy white colour like that of the packaging, here's hoping they keep this packaging as for once it suits unlike the other attempts! It doesn't tissue off very well, but using water works fine - I would advise using a flannel to ensure you don't miss any bits.

      Does it work?

      Well, I seem to (yet again!) be disagreeing with everyone. I think this stuff is brilliant. I am prone to a very irritated itchy, dry skin at times with breakout to boot. Nothing seems to help it and I have to wait for it to pass. Having nothing to lose I gave this mask a try and it is the only thing I have found so far that soothes it and reduces the redness.

      I am not sure why it works so well for me, I do not deny the fact that there are quite a few nasty ingredients inside - it just works! I am now on my second pot and hoping and praying that Avon do not discontinue it like they seem to be in the habit of doing so often!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Avoid

      The Hydra Radiance Vitamin Boost Mask is another product that is featuring heavily in the clearance section of Avon's brochures at present. It seems like a real bargain when it is available for just a pound or two, but even at that price it is too much. The Hydra Radiance range has recently been remodelled by Avon, so beware of any new products that appear to be suspiciously too much like this one.

      This product is basically a super greasy moisturiser. It claims to be a vitamin boost mask, but I fail to see what makes it a face mask. It is just a moisturiser that contains a few vitamins. What strikes me immediately about the vitamins it contains however, is that vitamin E is not at the top of the list. As every woman should know, vitamin E is the single most important vitamin for skin repair!

      Applying this product is not a very pleasant experience due to the greasy feel of this product. It half sits on the skin and half absorbs, which at least means that a few vitamins are sinking I suppose.

      The biggest problem I had with this product was that it irritated my eyes and left my skin feeling really greasy after use. I appreciate I should have avoided my eye area as directed, but usually a tiny amount of a facial product like this would not cause my eye to water quite so dramatically as it did. I did not count on my skin feeling so greasy and slimey after use either.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not good at all

      As a teenage girl, i'm always looking for ways to improve my skin. Whether it be to get rid of spots, be softer, be glowy or to be just clean.

      I saw this mask on offer for £2. If anything face wise is on offer cheap enough, I will buy it just because I'm so desperate to sort my skin out as I do suffer from spots. I know this doesn't say it's a spot solving mask, but face masks in general usually help the skin right?

      So I received it from my Avon rep. It's a tiny little tub/jar, if you're expecting a biggish one, you'll be disappointing because it's quite small. The texture is really thick and it's orange. I absolutely love the smell, but if you get it anywhere, it's gonna linger for days (which does tend to get a bit sickly).

      I put it all over my face, not too thick but thick enough. I left it on for the stated 10 minutes. It started to absorb into my skin, which I thought would be a good thing, as then it would hydrate my skin and make it nicer. It washes off okay, takes a while as it doesn't dry. It stays wet from the time you apply to the time you wash it off. It's one of those ones you have to sit rubbbing until it comes off. Nonetheless, I continued washing it off.

      Afterwards, I did find my skin a lot softer but after a few hours my skin became oily in the t-zone and chin. I suffer from oily skin anyway but this just added to it. I also noticed a few break outs which may just be my skin but still. My skin didn't feel any more hydrated than usual and it didn't look any different.

      Overall I'm just really disappointed with it. I will use it now and again if I'm feeling brave and risking getting a few spots, purely just for the luxury of using a face mask and relaxing. I think this would be perfect for people with dry skin as it does add oil. If you have oily skin, stay well clear because it's going to make it so much worse. I wouldn't recommend it overall.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        For £2.00 it doesn't hurt to try it but expect nothing and you won't be dissapointed!

        I love face masks and I own loads of them! Some peel off, some moisturising, exfoliating there are all sorts to buy and I can't resist em! My Avon lady, Anita pitched up and I ordered this from her half price cos it's something I regularly use (not this one, I mean in general lol).

        The Packaging....

        Light blue100ml pot with a twist on/off lid. No idea if it's recyclable. Avon are known for not putting much information on there products which is a reason I don't like purchasing their products very much. On the front tells me it's 'Hydro-Radiance, Vitamin Boost Revitalising Mask and on the back tells me stuff in a foreign language, but no idea what language it is as I only speak the Queen's English lol

        To Use..

        Well again when I ordered it never read how to use it in the catalogue but I'm pretty sure there was no information there on how to use it and of course, again with Avon doesn't tell me on my pot. I did look on the website when I put in the request to review it and it says to smear it on the face and leave it for 10-15 minutes.

        The Cream...

        In the pot it's white with a really small hint of peach and I mean small. Its fairly thick as in it don't drip all over the place but it's not to thick or anything, it's a nice consitency. It spreads on the face easily and smells really lovely. Fruity in a citrusy kind of way but none distinct.

        My Experience....

        Well I cleansed and toned my face first and then slapped quite a bit on and left it for 15 minutes. As I said the smell is quite pungent but even so it didn't irritate my skin in any way shape or form, caused no tingling sensation and didn't make my eyes run at all. It felt quite greasy upon application and happens to be one that doesn't dry which is a preference of mine anyway cos I find the drying ones make my spots crusty and I have to scrub it off which I really hate! Getting it off was really easy. I just washed with lukewarm water.

        The Results....

        Well after rinsing my skin it felt really, really soft but in a slightly greasy way so I had to cleanse and tone again as I didn't like the feeling too much and I like to make sure all remnants of face masks are off my skin otherwise I could be feeding my spots and blackheads which is a concern to me.

        The disappointing thing is I did think my skin would be more brighter and radiant and it wasn't. Apart from the soft feeling caused by the greasiness of the product that's where anything noticeable stopped for me. Skin appeared no fresher or cleaner than just using a facial wash, scrub, cleanser or toner or anything. It felt like a bit of a waste of my time o be totally honest.

        I've used it now a few times and that first result I'm talking about hasn't improved any. There's been no difference to my skin apart from negative. I now have been suffering more spots, dry patches which I cant understand and I've changed nothing other than this in my beauty regime.

        Overall....

        For me I think this is just too greasy. It hasn't delivered the promise it kind of implies and I wouldn't recommend it for someone who like me has combination skin. I still, at 33 have a greasy t zone, suffer spots, blackheads and whiteheads although now along with that I'm getting other signs of aging lol. It does nothing for me!

        Usually £4.00 per tub in Avon but I purchased it at £2.00 on offer.
