I “acquired” a tube of Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cream. To be honest, I am not a great fan of Avon products as most of the ones I have used before have been poor, to say the least. My friend who sits opposite me in the office actually gave me a tube as it was on offer in the Avon catalogue at only £1 when it normally retails for twice that much. I accepted a tube with thanks, as I have to use hand creams on a regular basis as the skin on my hands can be quite dry.
The hand cream itself comes in a fairly plain looking tube, basically white with a lid. The cream is medium level thickness in consistency and it sinks in fine into the skin though I do feel that it leaves residue and grease on my skin after I have used it. For this reason, I have to be pretty careful not to touch anything I don’t want marks leaving on afterwards, so I am careful if touching my reading glasses or my clothes.
The smell is fine. It is fresh and mild though I do not think it is special in any way. I’d be happy to pay about a pound for this hand cream though I would not go out of my way to buy it. It’s a run of the mill moisturiser and nothing special.
Unfortunately, it has a lot more negatives than posotives and I woudln't really recommend it.
I use hand cream several times a day and will always have a few tubes the go at any one time. I would say that I probably apply hand cream about three times a day on average, and more so if the weather is particularly cold. I bought this Avon Moisture Therapy hand cream for just £1 when it was on offer in the Avon book but the full price is only £2.50 so it is an affordable hand cream which you can use every day.
This hand cream smells clean and fresh without being too overpowering. It comes in a 75ml yellow tube with a flip top and the opening is wide enough to squeeze a decent amount of cream with just one squeeze. The tube contains the usual list of ingredients and instructions for use and the cream itself is white in colour and it feels very rich and creamy without feeling greasy or sticky at all.
To use I will squeeze a blob onto the back of my hand around the size of a five pence piece and find that this is usually plenty to rub into both hands. I will make sure that I rub it down between my fingers which sometimes get a bit cracked in the cold weather. It absorbs very quickly without too much rubbing and my hands feel soft and moisturised. I have never had any residue left on my hands or felt that I can't touch anything afterwards without leaving behind any remnants of cream.
I have been using this particular tube for about two months and I don't seem to have used much at all, but I do use others at home. I like the feel and smell of this cream, and the effect it has on my hands. I do recommend this hand cream to protect your hands from the cold weather and to keep them in great condition.
I purchased Avon's moisture therapy calming relief hand cream several months ago from our local representative. I just looked online to see the price of it now but I couldn't find it on avon. It did however show up on ebay at £2.30. At the time from Avon I paid £2.
The bottle - The cream comes in a tube about 18cm long and is quite narrow. I do like the style of it rather than a bulky bottle shape. It fits neatly into my day bag, kitchen cabinet and work locker so I can use it anywhere. The lid is screw on but it has a flip lid too which allows you to just squeeze the right amount out. The tube is an off white colour. We have moisture therapy written in blue vertically and then a block of information at the bottom underneath an oatmeal coloured drop. The information reads: Hand cream. For dry, itchy skin (then in French and Spanish). Oatmeal. Avon. On the reverse of the tube we read: Fortified with collodial oatmeal, this hand cream instantly soothes and comforts dry, itchy skin. Dermatologist tested. Allergy-tested. Hypoallergenic. Instructions for use: Apply liberally to hands.
One thing I don't like about the bottle is that its opaque so its hard to judge how much is left in there.
The texture - Medium in consistency, it is a cream rather than a watery lotion. This won't run off your hands when its applied. It rubs in well and quickly, I can use my keyboard again within seconds of applying it.
The results - Immediately after applying my hands feel somewhat rubbery. This is not a bad feeling but they don't feel silky soft and smooth. I noticed this feeling in my palms, the backs of my hands did feel nice and soft.
The smell - This cream does have a smell but it is not strong at all. The scent is oatmeal. I cannot smell it unless my hands are directly to my face. I do prefer something with a stronger smell but this is fine for work where I don't want to be stinking out the office with my exotic lotions and potions.
Summary - This cream works out £1.25 per 100ml so I am not dissapointed with my purchase. I do like the tube shape and size. However it wasn't the nicest feeling on my hands, nor was the smell anything special. In future I would chose other creams over this one.
Avon's ultra hydrating handcream claims to increase moisture levels by 75% leaving skin softer and smoother - I have used it for a few years now and believe it lives up to those claims.
I have really dry skin on my hands and the skin is extremely sensitive. I am also prone to quite severe eczema on my hands so its really important that I use a product that wont irritate it.
The packaging states it has been dermatalogist tested and it is suitable for sensitive skins.
As an eczema sufferer I know that I'm not supposed to use perfumed products or creams containing alcohol or lanolin, but for some reason this product doesn't irritate my hands even though it contains all of these three items.
Its a waxy consistency and is quickly asborbed without leaving my hands feeling greasy. It has a fresh and pleasant smell.
It also works as sort of a barrier cream as it retains moisture even after washing.
All in all, it knocks spots off other creams I have tried and seeing as it doesnt irritate my skin, if its not broke, Im not fixing it!!
I've had a soft spot for Avon products for a long time as my Mum was a rep for Avon during my school days and I grew up always surrounded by boxes full of the stuff all over the house.
One of my favourite Avon products is their Moisture Therapy hand cream, I have used this for many months since receiving a tube as a freebie and I have to say I'm hooked.
The cream is sold in tubes containing 125ml which is good size to keep in your desk drawer at work or even your handbag if you like bags big enough to take your kitchen sink like I do.
The cream costs around £2 though Avon often have special offers where you pick up 2 for the price of 1 or get this as a freebie if you buy something else. If that doesnt make this a bargain I dont know what does?! I cant think of many other places that make a handcream this good for so little money.
The cream itself - which is the most important part! - is smooth and thick without being too heavy, it absorbs into the skin quickly with little rubbing in needed and doesnt leave any greasy residue, ideal for me when I'm typing and handling files all day at work. The cream also has a pleasant light frangrance which reminds me of lavender and new born babies. I usually have to reapply only a couple of times a day depending on what I've been doing, my current tube of this cream is still going strong after 3 months daily use.
If you have access to an Avon rep or can order online I would definitely give this cream a try, at less than £2 a tube it would be crazy not to!
There are thousands of hand creams on the market, but Avon’s Moisture Therapy is my personal favourite. I purchased a tube of Moisture Therapy as part of an Avon special offer; it therefore cost me a mere one-pound for 125ml. It is quite possibly one of the best pounds I ever spent. Reasons For Trying This Product. As stated above it was on offer, but I also chose it as I have neglected my hands and decided it was time to something about them. I suffer with Raynaud’s Disease, and I have found a side effect of this is premature aging in the extremities. The Claims. The Product claims to increase moisture levels in the skin by up to 75% for up to eight hours, even through a washing. It also clams to be quickly absorbed and with regular use relieve itching, redness and roughness. The Product. The first thing I noticed was the scent. Not a bad fragrance but a little flowery for my tastes. The cream itself is reminiscent of Vaseline in consistency and feels very pleasant. Luckily I tried my first application at night so I didn’t have to put with greasy fingerprints all over the house. I made the mistake on the first night of using a huge dollop of cream, I have since realised that a very tiny amount goes a long way! I now apply a pea-sized amount, which is plenty. The Results. Dramatic! I could see and feel the difference after one application. My hands did indeed feel smoother and more hydrated. Since using regularly my hands have looked and felt much better, they are softer and look slightly younger too! Does The Product Live Up To The Claims? All except one, this cream is not quickly absorbed. I was a little sceptical at first but this is one cream which does what it states on the packaging, love it! The Packaging. Not much to look at but nicely packaged nevertheless, no gimmicks here, functional. In conc
lusion this is a must-buy moisturiser for tired out or neglected hands. I would recommend applying the cream at night due to the slightly greasy consistency.
After you have stopped laughing at the op Binnie wrote (my wife btw) about me with an Avon mask on, I thought I would test another Avon product off my own accord. My hands are often dry and cracked after working in the engineering business for over 24 years. They get bits of metal stuck in them, I have to wash them several times a day and they have become dry. I wanted a handcream that didn't smell to perfumed, and I had remebered Belinda's brother buying some of this for himself and his kids. The handcream is called Moisture Therapy and comes complete with Lipid Complex, whatever that is.. It costs £3.00 at the moment in Brochure 4 but you do get another one free. Sometimes you can get other special offers on it, like 5 for £5.00. The tube is plain white with a blue lid and is a 125 ml size. I have been using it over a month now and there's still loads left. The cream itself is quite thick, it's white and seems quite greasy and makes your hands look all powdery on application. If you rub it in well it does disappear fast and then lasts for up to 8 hours. You can still wash your hands without having to apply anymore afterwards. It's meant to increase the moisture level of the skin by 75%. It has been wonderful stuff, all the cracks in my hands have almost disappeared, they aren't as rough now either. Belinda even uses it for her sensitive skin and her nephews have exzema and they can use it without any trouble. They said it soothes the itching and the redness. The smell of it isn't strong, it reminds me of Nivea slightly, quite a pleasant smell for even us blokes. Don't be put off by the hand cream on application, it will disappear after rubbing in, I wouldn't say it was a quickly absorbed cream as it says on the tube, but once it has absorbed it doesn't leave any greasy residue. I will carry on using it, who knows I might even let Binnie test some more products on me, not
The thing i really like about Avon products is their cheep and there not tested on animails.I really like the Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cream. I use it alot during the winter to help prevent my hands from drying Sections. Ive actually heard that many women use this on their sature line (the scar you get when you have a cercerian)apparently women have said that it has stopped it from drying out. Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cream contains a lipid complex which protects the skins moisture. According to literature form Avon, Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cram retains a 75% increase in skins moisture level for up to 8 hours.That's a long time.It also says that it keeps moisturising when you wash your hands.I found that it did keep my hands nice and soft after I had washed up and didnt feel the need to put on any more.How ever i would just like to point out that you only have to put on a littlt bit on other wise your hands can feel really sticky.... yuk .If you have sensitive skin (like me and most people )this is the cream to use.It helps to relieve itchiness, redness and roughness of extremely dry skin. It's been hospital tested, dermatologist tested and is hypoallergenic.It is softly scented and is for both male and female. I have put the ingredients below especially for the people with sensitive skins. Ingredients: ---------------- Glycerin, Purified water, cetearyl alcohol, ricebran oil, sodium cetearyl sulfate, C-30-46 piscine oil, imidazolidinyl urea, stearic acid, squalene, methylparaben, fragrance, lanolin alcohol, lecithin, BHT, soybean oil, soy lecithin, allantoin The shelf life of Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cream is made to last through its normal life span (the time it takes to be used up) To maximize a Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cream shelf life, store it properly--in a cool dry place away from heat, humidity and direct sunlight.

This hand cream from Avon Cosmetics is really very good. It claims that it lasts for up to eight hours, even through washing. It is a nice thick cream, which feels very moisurising and has a nice subtle fresh smell. A tube of it lasts a long time as a little of it goes a long way. It is quickly absorbed by the skin and is said to increase moisture levels by 75%. It is hypo-allergenic and dermatologist tested and even suitable for sensitive skin. It comes in very basic white tube with blue writing, and costs £2.99 for 125ml I used this cream on my son (he's 2 years ols) who suffered from eczema and it seemed to stop the itching, which in turn helped to clear his eczema. I would recommend this cream to anyone with rough or dried skin as it is very soothing and moisturising.
This is excellent stuff if you suffer from really dry skin. My husband suffers badly from dry, cracked skin on his hands, due to the type of job he does. He tried many different makes of hand cream but this is the one that he now uses religiously. It comes in a very plain white and blue tube and it cost's £2.99 for 125ml. What it lacks in packaging it makes up for in effectiveness. Although on first appearance it seems quite thick and greasy, it does absorb well into the skin. It has a slight smell but isn't highly perfumed and is suitable for sensitive skin as it's hypo-allergenic. It claims to increase the moisture level of skin by 75% and that through regular use itching, redness and roughness can be relieved. It certainly works miracles on my husbands poor hands! If £2.99 for a relatively small tube seems a lot to pay, it's often on offer in the Avon catalogue where you can buy 3 tubes for £5.00.
