Avon Planet Spa Amazonian Treasures Review Bundle

6/30/2014



When someone who hasn't been acquainted with Avon products asks me what he or she should try first, my immediate response is always - the 'Planet Spa' range. If you're not too sure what to get, it's best to purchase foolproof products and Planet Spa range is definitely all that. Within that range you have different hair and skincare items featuring various scents and my fave, by far, is the Mediterranean Olive Oil. I haven't found a single person that found this scent offensive so it's the best one to start with. However, there are some other scents introduced along with the staple Dead Sea Minerals one (that one is a bit specific and not to everyone's taste) and I'm personally not too informed about those new scents or products. However, Planet Spa has recently been enriched with a new summer-y take inspired by Brazil and the lush Amazon. I have four products from that range and  two proved to be especially recommendation-worthy. If you're interested, keep on reading the Avon Planet Spa Amazonian Treasures Review Bundle.

Kada me netko ko nije prije koristio proizvode iz Avona upita sta prvo da nabavi, uvijek je odgovor isti - proizvodi iz 'Planet Spa' kolekcije. Ukoliko niste sigurni sta nabaviti i zelite pokusati sa proizvodima koji ce vam se zasigurno dopasti, onda je Planet Spa linija odlican pocetak. U okviru te kolekcije imate razlicite proizvode za njegu koze lica i tijela ali i kose. Od svih mirisnih varijeteta, meni se oduvijek najvise dopadala mediteranska maslina (malsinovo ulje). Miris je tako njezan, svjez i suptilan i jos nikada nisam cula kritike po pitanju tog mirisa tako da mi se cini kao najboljom za osobe koje prije nisu koristile ove proizvode. Tu postoji i miris minerala mrtvog mora kao jedan od originalnih clanova Planet Spa postave (no on je dosta specifican i nije po svacijem ukusu). Kasnije su dodate jos neke mirisne linije koje licno nisam isprobala no za ovo ljeto je uveden dodatak inspirisan Brazilom i bogatim Amazonom. Imam cetiri proizvoda odnosno cijelu kolekciju ovog ljetnog mirisa a izmedju njih su mi se dvije stvarcice posebno izdvojile. Ukoliko vas zanima sto me to posebno dojmilo, mozete sve detalje saznati u nastavku Avon Planet Spa Amazonian Treasures paketica recenzija.



The first product I would love to especially point out would be the Amazonian Treasures Nourishing Hair Mask. You get 200ml of product packaged in a lovely purple colored tube with gold ornaments. The entire range features this flashy purple and gold packaging. I'm usually the one to settle for more subtle and poised color combos, but hey - the inspiration was Brazil! Loud colors and patterns are a must. Aside with the interesting colors, all packagings are done in a standard way and are reliable as in - no leakage to report. This nourishing hair mask should help hair that is dehydrated from sun exposure regain its flexibility. I love the fact that it's a fast working mask - you can leave it on for only 1min or up to 10min on freshly washed hair whilst in the shower. It's said that you can apply it root to tip but my fine hair is better off with masks and conditioners residing on its tips only. The mask is purple in color and very creamy. It's not extra nourishing in sense that it doesn't weigh the hair down. Instead, it lightly hydrates it, smooths it out and makes it more manageable. It's easier to comb through wet hair with my Tangle Teezer brush and it was left very soft and silky. Amazonian Treasures Hydrating Face Mask comes in a 75ml purple-gold tube and it's of that same sweet, berry scent all products from this range feature. It's also of a gel-like purple-pinkish color and looks quite fresh. I'm personally looking for purifying, clarifying face masks (mostly clay based) but I can see how this little fella can help with hot and bothered face after being out all day and sun hittin' the skin (don't forget your SPF ladies!). Not a miracle worker but it does leave skin fresh, shiny and plump after leaving a thick layer on for 10min.

Prvi proizvod koji bih zeljela preporuciti je Amazonian Treasures hranljiva maska za kosu. 200ml proizvoda je upakovano u ljubicastu tubu ukrasenu zlatnim motivima. Cijela kolekcija je dizajnirana u ljubicasto-zlatnim tonovima te, iako sam osoba koja smatra suptilne kombinacije boja najprivlacnijim - inspiracija je bila Brazil! Jarke boje i veseli uzorci se podrazumijevaju. Osim sto su ukrasena zanimljivim bojama, pakovanja su uradjena kvalitetno u smislu da su pouzdana (nije bilo curenja proizvoda). Hranljiva maska za kosu je namijenjena kao ispomoc kosi koja je pomalo umorna zbog izlozenosti suncu te bi joj trebala vratiti fleksibilnost. Ono sto mi se jako dopalo jeste sto je ovo brzo djelujuca maska - mozete je na kosi ostaviti samo jednu minutu ali i do 10 minuta. Nanosenje je klasicno na svjeze opranu kosu, dok smo jos pod tusem ili u kadi. Navedeno je da se moze nanijeti cijelom duzinom kose no moja tanka kosa ipak najvise koristi dobije kada se hranljive maske i regeneratori nanose samo na njene vrhove. Maska je ljubicaste boje i kremaste teksture. Ne radi se o iznimno hranljivoj maski za kosu u smislu da moju tanku kosu nije otezala (sto neke intenzivno hranljive maske cine) vec je lagano hidratizirala, zagladila i ucinila laksom za oblikovanje. Moja Tangle Teezer cetka je kroz mokru kosu naprosto klizila i rezultat su zaista njezni i mekani krajevi. Amazonian Treasures hidratantna maska za lice dolazi u jos jednoj ljubicastoj tubi ali od 75ml i proizvod ima isti karakteristican miris bobicastog voca koji krasi i ostale iz ove linije. Maska je gelaste teskture i ruzicasto-ljubicaste boje te djeluje dosta osvjezavajuce. Sto se moje koze tice, inace sam u stalnoj potrazi za prociscujucim maskama (poput onih na bazi gline) no mogu razumjeti koliko ova hidratantna maska moze biti od koristi kozi zagrijanoj suncem (nemojte zaboraviti svoj SPF dame!). Maskica nije cudotvorac no lijepo osvjezi kozu i podari joj zdravi sjaj nakon sto deblji sloj odstoji na licu 10tak minuta.




Amazonian Treasures Hand and Foot Intense Care (75ml) is one fine treatment for very dry mittens and footsies. Very similar to the hair mask regarding the lavender color and creaminess - it packs serious TLC levels. A bit heavy, it's perfect for overnight treatments. After applying a thick layer on my feet, I put on some nice cotton socks and the skin really is very soft and nourished by morning. It could be a tad too sticky for hands (especially for everyday use and while on the go), so I'd advise not to tote it in your bag - it's place is on the bedside table. Finally, we have arrived to my favorite product from this range - the Amazonian Treasures Creamy Body Scrub (200ml). If you're looking for a coarse, sea salt-based scrub than skip this purple beauty. It's not the one for extreme body buffing. It's more on a gentle side as it actually is very creamy and nourishing but doesn't leave any residue on the skin after rinsing. To me, it seems to be more of a pampering, luxe cream body wash (shea butter, palm heart extract) which is densely shot through with very fine exfoliating particles (mulberry, cranberry seeds and plastic spheres). I find it to be very indulging because of its soft texture (reminds me of whipped creams and souffles), enticing berry scent (not too sweet, a bit sour). It doesn't lather too much and due to its creaminess it doubles as and excellent shaving cream as well. It does contain Brazilian acai fruit and these tropical palms bear first acai berries after 4 years of ideal climate. It also contains the aforementioned black mulberry aka amora which looks like a regular berry but grows on a tree. You can see it's seeds inside the scrub and I find that very cute. The only downside is shared with most scrubs from Lush - a messy tub. If you can find products from the Amazonian Treasures on a sale or an offer - I'd recommend snapping up the creamy body scrub and the nourishing hair mask. You get more for your buck quantity-wise and these two really stand out from this collection for me.

Amazonian Treasures intenzivna njega za ruke i stopala (75ml) je jedan dosta opasan tretman za suhu kozu. Dosta slicna maski za kosu po pitanju boje lavande i kremaste teksture - tretman pruza mnogo njege. Nakon sto nanesem deblji sloj na stopala navecer, navucem pamucne carapice i ujutro je koza stopala dosta glatka i njegovana. Tekstura je dosta bogata i mogla bi biti previse ljepljiva za svakodnevno koristenje na rukama tako da bih preporucila da ne provodi dane u vasoj torbi - vec na nocnom stolicu, kao dio nocnog tretmana. Napokon, dolazimo do mog favorita iz ove Planet Spa kolekcije a to je Amazonian Treasures kremasti piling za tijelo (200ml). Ukoliko trazite dosta grub piling poput nekog opasnog pilinga na bazi krupne soli za zestoko pilingovanje koze - onda preskocite ovog ljubicastog ljepotana. Nije namijenjen ekstremnom pilingovanju vec je radije njezne prirode te iako je dosta hranljiv, ne ostavlja ljepljivi sloj na kozi nakon ispiranja. Meni pruza dojam ugadjajuceg, kremastog tretmana i kupke (zahvaljujuci karite puteru i ekstraktu mesnatog 'srca' palminog drveta). Ova kremasta konzistencija je gusto prozeta sitnim cesticama koje sluze u svrhu eksfolijacije (brazilski dud, sjemenke brusnice i plasticne sfere). Zaista pruza iskustvo kao u wellness centru zahvaljujuci luksuznoj teksturi (poput 'tucenog vrhnja' ili suflea) i socnom mirisu bobicastog voca (pomalo kiselkaste, ne previse slatke arome). Ne proizvodi pjenu no zbog kremaste teksture je i izvrsna krema za brijanje. Piling sadrzi i brazilsku acai vocku cije tropsko drvo palme proizvodi plodove tek nakon 4 godine idealne klime i uvjeta. Takodjer sadrzi i crni brazilski dud poznat i kao 'amora' koji izgleda kao i svako slicno bocicasto voce no raste na drvecu. Unutar kremastog pilinga, nesto dublje ka sredini - pronasla sam sitne djelice ovog duda. Jako simpaticno no postoji jedna zamjerka koju dijeli sa npr. pilinzima iz Lush-a a to je nered u kadi/tusu nakon koristenja. Ukoliko mozete pronaci Amazonian Treasures proizvode na popustu ili na ponudi kao sada (2 za 16,90KM, str.5 u aktuelnom katalogu), onda preporucujem da nabavite Amazonian Treasures hranljivu masku za kosu i kremasti piling za tijelo. Tako cete za svoj novac kupiti i kolicinski vise proizvoda ali i po mom misljenju - najbolje proizvode iz kolekcije.
