As mentioned before I am a big fan of Avon hand creams and another favourite of mine, which currently lives in my handbag is this 100ml tube of AvonCare Renewing Moisture hand cream.
As part of the new packaging it comes in a 25ml smaller tube at of course the same price of £1.25 but I did get mine for free from my Avon rep as she had ordered too many and I am a good customer. The tube is white with pink detail and a blue screw top lid so it is resealable. I like that it is top down as I can squeeze and squeeze every last drop of cream out lol!
The cream itself is white and reminds me of the scent of Astral cream, so quite soft, and lightly perfumed. The smell itself is a bit floral and I am not particularly fond of it, but I have to sniff my hand quite closely to even realise the smell of it to be honest so this I can live with! As the cream is light the consistency isn't sticky or greasy so it is easy to use without me having to rub the palms of my hands after!
The cream is to improve skin's elasticity while providing 24 hour moisturisation. In all honesty, I have not particularly relied upon this cream for 24 hours to know whether it is good for this, but for me it gives long lasting moisture and one small blob about the size of a 5p coin liberally covers my entire hands and soaks in effortlessly leaving them soft and fully moisturised.
I am quite young, so I haven't particularly got a need for this cream's "anti-aging complex" to comment on whether it works or not but I do feel it helps my hand stay young and fresh so perhaps with continued usage my hands will remain the same whilst the rest of my body ages and wrinkles lol!
Overall I really like this cream, and will definitely look out for this again when it finishes in my next Avon brochure. It is reasonable at just over £1 but is often on offer so look out for the deals and grab a tube!
With the constant change in the weather I have noticed that my hands have been getting a little dry so when I saw these hand creams on offer in my Avon book I decided to give one a try, the one which I chose was the renewing moisture one.
The hand cream comes in a white and pink plastic tube, the bottom of this has a blue screw cap which is flat at the bottom so the tube will stand up on this. The design on the front off the tube has a blue area with the Avon logo on and in pink writing under this is the product name. On the back of the tube we have a lot of information in all different languages with the directions for use. The design is good and simple and the fact the cream comes out of the bottom of the tube is good as it always means it is ready to use and you dot have to wait for it to run down the inside before being able to squeeze it out.
When it comes to using the cream it is very simple to do, the screw lid easily screws of and then you can squeeze a small amount out through the small hole onto the inside of one hand, the cream is them to be rubbed into the complete hands and especially between the fingers where I find I get the most dryness. The cream is a white colour and of a nice consistency, it is not overly thick so causes problems rubbing it in and getting it all to soak in, and it is not overly runny which will result in it running off the hands before you get chance to rub it in. I find that I don't have to use a large amount of the cream for each use as it does spread far, a good 5 pence sized blob will easily cover both hands.
There is a smell to the cream and this is not overpowering and I do actually like it, it is quite light and floral. I am pleased that the smell does not last for very long as I find this to be off putting when it comes to eating or preparing food.
The cream does soak into the skin very well and leaves it feeling very moisturised and soft. I have found that this feeling lasts for a good few hours and even after washing up I still feel it slightly. I tend to put this on of a morning and find I am not feeling the need to re apply it well into the afternoon, also putting this on before bed means I wake to fid nice soft hands. Since starting using this over 1 month ago I have noticed a big difference in the appearance of my hands. They look much nicer and feel softer. The dry skin has all gone and I know the weather has started to settle a little but I doubt this would have happened without using this cream.
The cream comes in 100ml tube and I have been using this 2-3 times a day for over 1 month now and have roughly just under half of the tube left. It is priced at £3.50 but I managed to get mine for the offer price of £1. I feel the full price is still good as it is lasting and works well. The hand creams are usually on offer so try to look out for it. It is only available from Avon, both in the catalogue and online direct from their website.
