Gems from Avon and Justine


A while ago I was spoilt rotten by Avon and Justine with a crate of products so here I have rounded up my faves that are worth a try.

1.Avon skin so soft fusions soft & nourish body moisturiser
This is a dual-phase moisturiser that fuses together sweet almond, jojoba and glycerine providing complete and long lasting softness. This is THE BEST MOISTURISER I HAVE EVER TRIED!!!! It has a gorgeous green floral scent and you can actually see the dual colour when you squeeze it out it has a blue and a white stripe. I love the fact that it is not runny like a lot of other moisturisers which I feel is just water and not so thick like a body butter it is just right. And you apply this stuff and next second it absorbs quickly into the skin softens and hydrates. Amazing!
2. Avon Anew ultimate 7s sheer tint beauty balm SPF 20
Been using this one daily it packs an SPF 20. It is a one colour suits all as it has colour beads which adapt to the colour of your skin. The Anew range is the anti-ageing range so this targets wrinkles, firmness and discolouration. It is very hydrating so gives the skin a nice dewy glowy effect. Sheer coverage as the name suggests.
3. Avon makeup setting spray
Perfect for oily skinned girls it is an ultra-light weight spray, fast drying and used to set makeup. Also infused with vitamins this to me is a dead ringer/ dupe for the MAC fix + spray at a fraction of the price.
4. Avon scent essence romantic bouquet EDT
Nice small 30ml size that I has found a home in my handbag. This is the floral variant and as you know I love florals. This one is a feminine bouquet of dewy peony petals and pink freesias kissed with sensual vetiver. I miss just pure florals every fragrance that lands on my desk seems to be some type of fruity floral this one offers a nice mix a florals that are both powdery and fresh. I like that they didn’t throw in the standard rose scent and used peonies which I haven’t seen a lot of perfume houses besides Issey Miyake and Jo Malone use.
5. Justine LUXE silken foundation SPF 20
Very nice hydrating foundation so no need to apply moisturiser underneath. And as always the luxe range contains only the best luxurious ingredients like infused white sapphire extract and silk powder. Because it is a foundation coverage can be built up very nicely on days when you need a bit more coverage. Offers a nice healthy dewy skin effect. Very comfortable and not too heavy on the skin.
6. LUXE Illusion Concealer
Glides on smoothly and provides maximum coverage with a smooth, even finish that lasts all day long. This stuff can cover anything.
7. Color trend colour blast lip lacquer
This one is a lip gloss and stain in one. Nice moisturising gloss when applied latter on once then throughout the day leaves a nice highly pigmented stain as it wears off and this stain is visible all day I even swatched it on my hand to test the colour and it stayed on for a few days this is a very nice long wear lip stain that I’ve been reaching for daily. A nice thick gloss as I hate runny glosses.
8. Advanced technique smooth as silk shampoo
Makes my hair more manageable and detangled. Leaves my hair silky and not frizzy. Smells amazing and foams up nicely.
9. Senses sensual mystique exotic rose & jasmine shower crème
I only recently discovered shower crèmes this is basically a shower gel but with an added moisturiser which is amazing for days when you are in a rush with no time for body lotion. This variant smells amazing
10. Foot works all in one pedicure
This is basically 1 step pedicure it is nice and grainy to exfoliate the feet and increase circulation and moisturise. Afterwards my feet were left soft and moisturised will be using this to give myself a pedicure weekly. Get salon type pedicures at home in a flash.
11. Extra lasting lip gloss in always on pink
This lipgloss is quite thick which makes it last longer. Rich colour and very hydrating I particularly like the fine gold and pink shimmers in this one. I wouldn’t say it lasts 8 hours maybe 5 the most but it does wear down nicely leaving behind gold and pink shimmer particles in the end.
12. Instant repair 7 treatment spray
Packed with ingredients like keratin, avocado oil and vitamin E. Provides instant and powerful results with long-lasting strength, smoothness and shine. Reverses the symptoms of damaged hair and restructures the inner and outer part of hair fibres. The 7 is for the 7 benefits being anti-breakage, dryness, dullness, split ends, frizz, roughness and heat protection. I like to use this in place of my heat protectant spray before heat styling or blow drying.
13. Youth restore restorative hand cream
Packed with collagen and elastin this is great for ageing hands making it feel more elastic and firmer. After applying it quickly absorbs and makes my skin feel soft and my nails feel stronger.
14. Instant repair 7 treatment mask
I love masks just such an amazing feeling having a bubble bath with a mask and just relaxing gives my hair that extra pampering. This mask does not leave the hair greasy after it is washed off.
15. Orchid and blueberry shower gel
These ranges remind me of something you could buy from the body shop. A little goes a long way and the blueberry scent is very refreshing. This is a fruity floral scent making skin feel cleansed and conditioned
16. Gel finish nail enamel
This is a bit thicker than a normal nail polish. No UV lamp required, highly pigmented and easy to remove.
17. Smooth as silk serum
A few drops of this and my hair looked instantly shinier mainly due to it containing a lot of silicone. Hello shiny healthy glossy hair.
18. Treatment detox treatment cream
This is the first of its kind never seen something like this before. It does contain detoxing ingredients like green tea and pomegranate juice. Also packed with vitamin E which is great for the skin. It is very hydrating and I wake up with soft smooth skin. It claims to help protect skin against free radicals which are harmful molecules that can damage the structure of skin cells, helps skin to combat the damaging effects of pollution and other environmental stresses which can lead to premature ageing. Used when skin is feeling stressed or during seasonal changes. Skin is left looking and feeling rejuvenated, revived, radiant and healthy.
19. Sun + protecting balm
Contains a nice SPF 30 is water resistant. This is not just used on the lips as a lip balm it can also be applied to other areas. Very nice, easy and convenient to apply. This reminds me of the Elizabeth Arden sun protecting stick.
20. Cooling citrus mint foot spray
A nice simple refreshing foot spray that revives tired feet
21. Tissue Oil Baby Botanicals Baby Lotion
A light lotion that is easily absorbed to leave baby’s skin feeling soft and supple.
Enriched with the botanical goodness of sunflower seed oil, rice bran oil and chamomile flower oil, vitamin E and aloe. I use this myself and you know it is great for sensitive skin as it is formulated for baby’s skin.
