Avon Care Intensive Relief - Dry Skin Be Gone!

1/10/2015



After this photo started to make rounds on the internet, I figured that all the ladies must have serious dry skin issues such as myself. Even though I knew I'd thoroughly use and test these products, I still had no idea to which extent they'd eventually come handy. Avon Care Intensive Relief range is made for very dry, damaged, scaly skin in mind. This Intensive Relief range consists of five products and I do have my favorites but let's start from the least loved item - the Avon Care Intensive Relief Hand Treatment. I'm a big fan of Avon hand creams, especially from the basic Care ranges. Fast absorbing, light yet deeply nourishing and a great value for money - that's what I expected to get this time and that's exactly why I felt deprived. The 100ml tube for approx $2 is a bargain! And I do like the clean, almost French pharmacy kinda vibe aesthetic. It's intended for extremely dry and sensitive skin and has a neutral scent that I suspect not many people will detect. It's of a pleasant creamy texture and of white coloring but what I wasn't a fan of is the fact that this cream leaves white traces well after you rub it in. It's remained as a night hand treatment for me and I keep it on my night stand but it's not a hand cream I can whip out and use during the day. It doesn't sink it quickly and it leaves a protective layer on top of the skin - something not everyone will love.

Nakon sto je ova slika pocela opasno da kruzi internetom, shvatila sam kako i ostale dame sigurno vode bitku sa suhom kozom bas poput mene. Iako sam znala da cu zasigurno da cesto koristim proizvode o kojim ce ovdje biti rijeci, zaista nisam mogla pretpostaviti do koje mjere ce ustvari biti u upotrebi i koliko ce mi biti od koristi. Avon Care Intensive Relief kolekcija njegujucih proizvoda je namijenjena za izrazito suhu, ostecenu i perutavu kozu. Sastoji se od pet proizvoda medju kojima su se izdvojili favoriti no zapocnimo sa upravo onim koji mi je mozda najmanje odgovarao - Avon Care Intensive Relief tretman/krema za ruke. Velika sam ljubiteljica Avon kremica za ruke, posebno iz Care asortimana - zasto? Uglavnom zbog brzoupijajucih formulacija, lagane no efektno njegujuce teksture i odlicnog omjera kvalitete (ali i kvantiteta) i cijene. Upravo sam sve to ocekivala i ovaj put no odusevljenje je izostalo. Bez obzira, ne mogu ignorisati cinjenicu da 100ml kreme kosta samo 2,90KM sto ce nekome biti dovoljan argument za kupovinu. I da, dopada mi se skoro pa farmaceutski vizual sto se tice dizajna cijele ove kolekcije. Krema je namijenjena za izrazito suhu i osjetljivu kozu, neutralnog je mirisa, prijatne je kremaste teksture i bijele boje no u jednom detalju lezi problem. Cak i nakon energicnog masiranja kreme u kozu ona ostavlja bijele tragove a potom i pomalo ljepljiv sloj na povrsini koze. Ovu kremu koristim samo kao nocni tretman no jednostavno mi ne odgovara za koristenje tokom dana posto se ne upija brzo i zastitni sloj na povrsini mi predstavlja smetnju - pretpostavljam da necu biti jedina.



Avon Care Intensive Relief Body Lotion is very similar to Neutrogena body lotions but it's twice the bargain which is truly hard to beat. It's really awesome at smoothing dry skin's surface - without making it sticky. Also intended for extremely dry and sensitive skin, enriched with rice bran oil and jojoba - this is a type of lotion you want your entire family to have access to. Huge 400ml tube is phenomenal for mere $3,5. I would like to mention that this body lotion does contain mineral oil, petrolatum, glycerin and methylparaben which not everyone would find suiting for them or their family. Depending on your preference maybe the rice bran oil, oatmeal, soybean oil, jojoba oil and urea could balance things out. Personally, I'm not thrilled about the ingredients list but since I've noticed that it truly makes a difference I'm willing to get my guard down just as I've done for my Neutrogena body balm. The Care Intensive Relief body lotion is of a neutral scent, white coloring but it sinks in very easily despite having a rich texture and formulation. It doesn't leave white traces or any residue but it immediately makes my skin smooth, calm and free from any redness or dry patches. It's a saviour of my horrifyingly parched shins.'Nuff said.

Avon Care Intensive Relief losion za tijelo me jako podsjeca na Neutrogena mazalice no skoro je pa dvostruko povoljniji po cijeni od 5,50KM za 400ml proizvoda. Izuzetan je po pitanju zagladjivanja povrsine koze no ne cini je ljepljivom. Takodjer je namijenjen jako suhoj i osjetljivoj kozi, obogacen je uljem rize i jojobe. Zbog cijene, kolicine i namjene ovaj losion se moze svrstati u one univerzalne mazalice koje je jako zgodno imati u domu za cijelu porodicu. No, imam potrebu da zbog pojedinih citateljica koje polazu mnogo paznje na sastav spomenem da ovaj losion sadrzi mineralno ulje, petrolatum, glicerin i metilparaben. Ovisno o vasih preferenci zavisi da li cete biti zainteresovani za ovaj proizvod. Mozda vam prisutstvo ulja rize, zobi, soje, jojobe i uree pomogne izbalansirati stvari? Licno i nisam pretjerano odusevljena sastavom iako nisam puritanac po tom pitanju. Ipak, nakon sto sam uvidjela koliko mi je ovaj losion pomogao i uklonio kozne boljke koje su me mucile - mislim da cu biti fleksibilna ovaj put kao sto sam bila fleksibilna po pitanju Neutrogena balzama za tijelo zbog iste stvari. Losion je neutralnog mirisa, bijele boje no ne ostavlja tragove na kozi i jako se brzo upija uprkos tome sto je hranljiv. Cini kozu glatkom, smirenom i lisenom crvenila te suhih, perutavih dijelova. Potkoljenice su mi u jako dobrom stanju sto je za mene velika stvar tokom zime - sve zahvaljujuci ovoj mazalici.




Avon Care Intensive Relief SOS Cream is really similar to the body lotion regarding the way it works. You get smooth, calm skin without any sticky aftermath. The only things to keep in mind is that you get 200ml of product, it's not as soft as I imagined - it's almost a cream/balm hybrid regarding its texture and I'd recommend it to everyone who finds 400ml of body lotion to be too much and to those who don't have an issue with open tubs and use of (clean) fingers. It sinks in beautifully and it's a tad more lightweight than the body lotion. My absolute fave from the entire range must be the Avon Care Intensive Relief SOS Balm. This 30ml tube has become one of my favorite companions whenever I go to work as it literally saves my face every single time. I know this may be controversial but yes, I have used this balm on my face. I think it's supposed to be a rescue balm for dry and rough areas such as elbows and knees. As an addition to petrolatum, rice bran and soybean oil it contains shea butter, sunflower seed oil and salicylic acid. It's very thick yet creamy when comes in contact with warm skin and has a slightly medicinal smell but it does wonders for my skin! It cured my flaky nose, chin and cheeks within two days - that's quite an accomplishment if you ask me! Make-up finally sat perfectly over those dry patches which are now disappeared and I couldn't be more happy. It's small size makes it travel and handbag friendly and I use it on literally everything - from my nose, lips, cheeks, chin, neck, hands, elbows, knees, feet etc. Finally we have the Avon Care Intensive Relief Lip Treatment which is a very handy lip balm for every day. It does soothe my lips effectively, it's very cute regarding its packaging and small size. It's just one of those cheap & cheerful things that surely cannot hurt but no miracles should be expected. Any of these caught your eye ladies?

Avon Care Intensive Relief SOS krema je jako slicna gore spomenutom losionu, narocito po pitanju efekta na kozu. Uz njenu pomoc koza je glatka, meka i smirena bez ljepljivosti. Jedino sto bi mozda trebalo imati na umu jeste da dobijete 200ml kreme za 4,90KM i da nije toliko mekana i kremasta koliko sam barem ja ocekivala - cak bih rekla da je hibrid kreme i balzama. Preporucila bih je svima vama kojima je mozda 400ml proizvoda previse i onima koji ne smatraju nanosenje kreme (cistim) prsticima iz posudice problemom. Jako se lijepo upija te je za mrvicu laganija na kozi od losiona. Moj apsolutni favorit iz cijele ove kolekcije je Avon Care Intensive Relief SOS balazam (4,50KM). Tubica od 30ml je postala moj vjerni pratitelj kako kod kuce, tako izvan nje ali i na radnoj duznosti. Doslovno mi je ovaj magicni balzam spasio lice. Moguce da je pomalo kontroverzno koristiti ga na licu no upravo sam to ucinila i uopste se nisam pokajala. Koliko sam shvatila, balzam je namijenjen kao brza pomoc strasno isusenim dijelovima koze tijela poput grubih laktova, koljena i sl. Uz petrolatum, ulje rize i soje sadrzi karite puter, ulje suncokreta i salicilnu kiselinu. Dosta je gust ali u kontaktu sa toplinom koze se pocne topiti. Blago je medicinskog mirisa ali ono zbog cega ga najvise volim je nacin na koji je transformisao moja problematicno suha podrucja. Mjesecima sam se borila sa uporno perutavim flekama oko nosa, brade i obraza. Za samo dva dana lezenog nanosenja ovaj balzam ih je u potpunosti uklonio - ne mogu biti sretnija zbog toga! Napokon tecne podloge lijepo 'sjedaju' preko cijelog lica a balzam je od tada postao univerzalac - koristim ga za nos, bradu, vrat, ruke, laktove, koljena, stopala itd. Napokon, imamo Avon Care Intensive Relief tretman/balzam za usne (2,90KM) koji je dosta zgodjusan balzam za usne za svakodnevnu upotrebu. Jako je simpatican i majusan te je jedan od proizvoda koji ne kostaju mnogo i ne mogu naskoditi ali ne ocekujte magiju. Da li je neki od spomenutih proizvoda mozda zaokupio vasu paznju?
