Avon Nutra Effects Body Lotions for Dry & Dehydrated Skin

October nights have become increasingly chilly so warmer jackets have become a must. I imagine the heating shall be soon turned up and even lazy people (such as myself) will ‘have to’ amp up the body care levels. I'm the first one to admit that I don't slather myself in body creams and lotions regularly, which isn't a good habit as every skin type needs to be taken care of. I'll usually just apply a few spritzes of Nuxe Multipurpose Dry Oil and be done or, if I'm in a pampering mood, I'll treat my skin with L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate. Those two products are my body care staples which I repurchase over and over again. The only body cream I used to squeeze between the two was the Neutrogena intensive balm – and here I have two very similar body lotions which have managed to sway me and earn my love.

Avon Nutra Effects body range now features two lotions, each being specifically made to treat particular needs of dry and particular needs of dehydrated skin. *Nutra Effects Ultimate Moisture daily body lotion with chia seed (250ml) has a lovely Nivea-esque scent, which I enjoy immensely. It's targeted at normal to dry skin and I think everyone who usually hates body creams will like this one as it feels fresh. It has a very light, almost runny and very hydrating texture. It sinks into the skin fast and doesn't leave a sticky trace on top of the skin. You can literally dress yourself right after applying it. I wouldn't say it provides 48h of moisture but it does keep skin hydrated for the majority of one workday. Great after shaving as it softens the skin and is very gentle.

*Nutra Effects Intensive Repair restoring body lotion with flax and marula seed (250ml) feels more substantial and leaves the impression that it can actually tend to dry skin. It also has a lovely soft cream scent but it's less prominent and not as noticeable on the skin (as the case is with the hydrating lotion). It also has a thicker, creamier texture which feels more emollient and not runny or liquidy at all. Surprisingly, it also sinks into the skin quickly and doesn't leave it sticky. I would say it keeps skin soft and supple a few hours longer than its hydrating counterpart. I've made an experiment to determine their differences by applying the hydrating lotion on my right leg and the restoring lotion on my left leg. After an entire day at work in my jeans, I came home to discover small dry flakes on my right shin whilst the left was still smooth and soft. 

Depending on your preference I'd advise to choose your fave but I've personally been loving the restoring lotion – it will be a fave for people who love subtle fragranced lotions, with a creamier texture and a longer-lasting nourishing effect which is necessary come colder months. Info for ingredient puritans: these lotions contain glycerin and mineral oil.

  • Oktobarske noći su postale veoma svježe i toplije jakne su obavezne. Pretpostavljam da ćemo uskoro morati upaliti i grijanje a predviđam i da će lijenčine (poput mene) morati uložiti dodatni trud kako bi održale kožu tijela mekom i njegovanom. Prva ću priznati da ne koristim kreme ni losione za tijelo svaki dan što je loša navika – svakom tipu kože je potrebna njega. Inače koristim Nuxe multifunkcionalno suho ulje i to je vrhunac mojih napora. A ako se baš želim počastiti, onda se namažem L'Occitane Badem mliječnim koncentratom. Ta dva proizvoda su jedina koje iznova kupujem a krema koja se nekako uspjela povremeno ugurati između njih je Neutrogenin balzam za tijelo – u nastavku vam pišem o dva losiona koja me neodoljivo podsjećaju na Neutrogeninu mazalicu.
  • Avon Nutra Effects njega tijela sada uključuje i dva losiona od kojih jedan namjenski njeguje suhu a drugi dehidriranu kožu. *Nutra Effects Ultimate Moisture dnevni losion za tijelo sa chia sjemenkama (250ml | 7,90KM) ima lijep miris kreme, veoma sličan mirisu klasične Nivee. Namijenjen je za normalnu i blago isusenu kožu a lično mislim da će se mnogo dopasti osobama koje se inače ne vole mazati kremama. Ima veoma laganu, gotovo vodenastu teksturu koja je hidratantna i ostavlja osjećaj svježine. Veoma se brzo upija u kožu, ne ostavljajući sloj na površini. Nakon nanošenja se odmah možete obući. Ne bih rekla da pruža 48h hidratacije ali većinu radnog dana koža je mekana i njegovana. Pošto je dosta blag i omekšava kožu, pogodan je za korištenje nakon brijanja.
  • *Nutra Effects Intensive Repair regenerirajući losion za tijelo sa uljem lana i uljem marule (250ml | 6,90KM) djeluje ‘konkretnije’ i ostavlja dojam da je dorastao zadatku pružanja njege suhoj koži. Također ima veoma blag, prijatan miris kreme koji je ipak blaži u odnosu na hidratantni losion. Teksturom je dosta gušći, kremastiji i ‘maziviji’, dok hidratantni losion samo sklizne sa kože. Iznenađujuće, ovaj hranljivi losion se također brzo upija u kožu i ne čini je ljepljivom. Par sati duže čini kožu nahranjenom i mekanom, u odnosu na hidratantnu verziju. Napravila sam eksperiment kako bi ih usporedila. Desnu nogu sam namazala hidratantnim losionom a lijevu regenerirajućim, hranljivim losionom. Dan sam provela cijeli dan na poslu u farmericama a po dolasku kući sam primjetila sitne suhe djeliće kože kako se blago perutaju na desnoj potkoljenici, dok je lijeva i dalje bila mekana. 
  • Znači, ovisno o preferencama bi donijela odluku između ova dva losiona a meni lično se boljim pokazao regenerirajući – vjerujem da će se dopasti svimja vama koji preferirate blaži miris u kremama, malo kremastiju teksturu i ipak malo duži efekat njege na koži, toliko potreban po dolasku hladnijih mjeseci. Informacija za puritance po pitanju sastojaka: ovi losioni sadrže glicerin i mineralno ulje.
