*Why I want the product*
Lip products and me go hand in hand together, if I see it I want it. My lips are always calling out for a lip product anyway as they can get so dry in any seasons.
There isn't many lip products on the market that have lovely moisturising properties with a gloss at the same time. Normally it is one or the other and if they do contain both you are likely to be left with dry lips due to the gloss drying the lips out.
*About the product*
Upon getting an Avon catalogue through the door and having a quick browse I came across their lip balm/gloss called Care Sheer Gloss Lip Tint with Jojoba Oil.
Avon has described this gloss as none sticky, which helps to hydrate your lips with Jojoba Oil, while providing incredible shine with a tint of pink.
This product's packaging has changed since the picture on Dooyoo above. Now it comes in a shiny plastic squeezable yet sturdy 10ml tube. The front looks delicate with rose pink flower detailing at the bottom and a rose pink stripe going across the middle. The screw off lid is navy in colour and contrasts well with the design of the tube.
I am not to keen on Avon not including ingredients on the back of the packaging.
*Applying the product*
When I purchased Sheer Gloss I was unsure whether I made the right decision or not because I got it for a low price there is always something on the back of my mind if it works or not and a waste of money even if I did get it for £1.
Receiving my product I wanted to try it straight away and see if the product lives up to its claims and if my faith had been restored.
Squeezing a little product out I was surprised to see the product came out clear even though Avon say it has a light pink tint to it, but it did seem very light in texture. Applying a small amount to my fingers it was a little runny and I was worried this would mean once on it would bleed to the surrounding skin.
Applying to my lips it felt lovely, it feels light, delicate, and soft with incredible shine with a slight hint of sweetness, which smells like a delicate flower and there was a soft pink tint that happens when contact with the skin has occurred.
*How it works*
Sheer Gloss has a wonderful ingredient called Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil is a fantastic essential oil that is wonderful for moisturising and locking in moisture. It is also used widely to help heal sores and wounds.
*Price and availability*
In the catalogue I received it was marked down as £1 compared to their original price of £3.20.

*What I think about it/do I like it*
Such a small amount of product is needed and anymore than this can cause bleeding. This product doesn't feel sticky in anyway what so ever, in fact it feels so light on the lips you forget it is there.
After hours of wear my lips are still left soft.
Like any gloss there is a lot of transfer when drinking and eating, however even though the gloss has been transferred off there is still a small amount of product left on the lips to keep them protected and shiny.
Although Jojoba Oil is included in Sheer Gloss Avon doesn't sate how much is included.
I think the gloss is a lovely part of this product and really is high shine. On the lips it looks fantastic if you are dressing down with a tee shirt and jeans, you're makeup will also look polished.
This Sheer Gloss will look fantastic in the summer for a natural polished look.
*Would I purchase again*
Yes I would, it is a lovely high gloss with moisturising properties that doesn't actually dry out my lips unlike other lip moisturising glosses.
Because you need so little product a 10ml tube will last you a long time and at £3.20 full price it won't break the bank.
Summary: A great Sheer Gloss with Jojoba Oil from Avon.
