Avon True Nutra Effects Skincare Line: The Cleansers

Avon True Nutra Effects Skincare LineYass. My mom not had only gotten one skincare product to try; she had bought the whole LINE. I mean, if you ever consider yourself extra you should get to know her first.Well okay, the moisturizers are missing and a bunch of other stuff too. The Nutra Effects line is wide as outer space with two pages of products in their Finnish webstore only. I can only imagine the selection of products they have in America!I would still consider this a pretty fine assortment. There is micellar water, foaming face wash, a scrub, some refreshing gel cleanser (a must for my greasy cake face) and last but not least a bottle of cleansing oil for those rare occasions when my visage feels a dat bit dry. An eye makeup remover, a mask plus definitely a toner and you would be all set and way beyond.
Avon True Nutra Effects Skincare Line
Self-Foaming Face Wash for Combination & Oily Skin A very basic and a very good foaming wash. Great for either a morning wash or second phase wash when removing makeup. Glycerin is third on the ingredient list which makes this excellent for any skin type as it remoisturizes the skin after the wash. A good moisture balance helps prevent excessive oiliness and therefore breakouts on oily/combination skin, keeps normal skin looking dewy and relieves the dryness.I wonder why isn't this marketed for dry skin or all skin types? The foaming formula in my opinion is better for dry or normal skin. Perhaps it is marketed for oilier skin because they already have so many suitable options for dry skin, for example the oil wash or cleansing milk..8€/ 150ml, AvonRefreshing Gel Cleanser for all Skin Types Okay so this is not the product to make your face feel squeaky clean after makeup removal. In fact I felt like I had to wash my face three times to get rid of all the paint. Usually it only takes two washes and some toner.This is said to be suitable for sensitive skin too so maybe this is for cleaning the skin only and not taking off a full mask.8€/ 150ml, AvonMiracle Glow Lightweight Cleansing Oil Ohh I was so excited to try this. I absolutely love the bottle and any product with the word 'glow' on it catches my eye.The scent is definitely the same classic 'Avon Oil Scent' they use in almost all of their oil products. The consistency is lightweight, as promised, and runny but it still leaves an oily surface on the skin. A great thing for dry skin but not the best for a skin that has it's own oils unless you really want to take the risk to get breakouts. So I would first use this and then a gel to avoid them.The oils used: canola, passiflora incarnata (maypop) seed, linseed, coffea arabica seed, sclerocarya birrea (marula) seed and orbignya oleifera (babassu) seed.10€/ 125ml, Avon
Avon True Nutra Effects Skincare Line
Micellar Cleansing Water for all Skin Types A great micellar water that takes off the makeup gently but effectively. Glycerin is the third ingredient again so your skin is sure to feel smooth and moisturized after using this. Two thumbs up, especially for the generous size!8€/ 200ml or 12€/ 400ml, AvonGentle Scrub Cleanser for Normal/ Dry Skin This is my favourite out of the five. I am nuts over scrubs so I know a good one when I see one. Ecuadorian ivory plant seed powder and opium poppy seed bits combined with a very gentle and moisture rich formula leave the skin mesmerizingly glowy. Great for any skin type.8€/ 100ml, Avon// Tästä tuli niin pitkä postaus että suomennos jää tällä kertaa väliin :( Seuraavaksi arvioin kuitenkin muutamaa kotimaista tuotetta joten pysy kanavalla!Nämä Avonin tuotteet olivat perushyviä/erinomaisia, heikoin lenkki ehkä geelipuhdistaja jonka olisin toivonut olevan vähän stydimpää tavaraa meikinpoistoon.

Avon Nailpolish REVIEW

Avon Nailpolish REVIEW
Years and years ago my mom started reselling Avon-products and ever since I have used their nailpolishes. They look so tempting in the catalogues - so many colors you can't decide between so you almost want to order them all! Should you then?
I don't think so. There are many different formulas to choose from and the result is always nice. At first. Easy to apply, nice and even look etc. Everything seems perfect at first glance. The problem is that these won't stay on! And I am not the only one who has noticed it. Gel effect, glitter, normal... Thicker or runnier, doesn't matter, it will start flaking and/ or peeling off without having to do anything extreme with your hands.
I also feel that these are very drying if you get the product on your cuticles. Some shades can even color the actual nail permanently. Not with the actual color of the polish but with YELLOW. Not a nice finish to have on your natural nail, especially if they are a bit longer. The tinting can be a result from many other things, I know, but it is easy to blame the nailpolish your drawers are full of.
I would say the finish is prettier and more 'espensive' looking than in most nailpolishes under 10 euros. The beauty starts to crumble so easily so I would either go for something cheaper with better durance and almost the same finishing (Essence for example) or invest a few more extra euros for Essie or OPI since these Avon ones are affordable but not from the cheapest end of the scale.

Avon Nailpolish REVIEW

On fingernails: Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro Nail Enamel in Plum Dazzle, on toenails Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Starburst

// Vuosien Avon-kynsilakkakokemuksen syvällä rintaäänellä joudun valitettavasti toteamaan etteivät nämä houkuttelevan hintaiset ja näköiset lakat kannata. Aluksi ne saattavat vaikuttaa täydellisiltä: helppo levittää, kaunis lopputulos. Ensimmäisen vuorokauden aikana lakka alkaa kuitenkin rapistua ja sitä voi jopa pystyä vetämään liuskoina kynneltä. Eikä tarvitse edes tehdä mitään missä kädet joutuvat koetukselle.
Nämä myös tuntuvat kuivattavan keskivertolakkaa enemmän kynsinauhoja niihin osuessaan. Olen myös huomannut näiden joskus jopa värjäävän luonnonkynnen kellertäväksi. Värjäymät voivat toki johtua monesta muustakin tekijästä mutta helposti alkaa syyttää kynsilakkaa jota löytyy eniten kaapista.
Pullot ja lopputulos (heti lakkauksen jälkeen) ovat kuitenkin vähän 'kalliimman' näköisiä. Keskivertoa alle 10€ kustantavaa lakkaa huonommin pysyvänä ostaisin mielummin joko parin euron Essencen lakkoja, joilla saa melkein yhtä kiiltävän lopputuloksen ja vieläpä pysyvämmän semmoisen. Toinen vaihtoehto olisi sijoittaa vähän ekstraeuroja esimerkiksi OPI:n tai Essien lakkoihin tai kytätä muita merkkilakkoja aleista.

Normal price 9€ for 10ml, often on sale. From Avon.

XHC Xpel Hair Care REVIEW

Just a basic afternoon stroll at Primor and I found myself three excellent products richer - less than six euros poorer. Let me introduce you to a great brand that is yet to be discovered for way too many people.
I absolutely forgot to take a group photo of these three together so I had to borrow pics from Amazon.

Shimmer of Silver Conditioner

This actually works, even in brunette hair with blonde highlights. And even when I had brunette hair with golden undertones this definitely gave them a cooler shade.
Doesn't give too much shine. The moisturization is ok.
Definitely recommend this to blondes for regular/ everyday use. If it works for a brunette then I definitely think this would help a blonde also. Maybe this wouldn't make yellow hair silvery after one use but would help this maintain the ashy look.

Cleansing Charcoal Conditioner

An amazing product to say the least. The first thing that comes to my mind about beauty products that have a special cleaning effect is that the leave the surface they are used on feeling dry and squeky-clean.
This actually managed to clean and replace dullness with shine and then moisture it leaving the hair silky smooth and healthy looking. At first I was a little sceptical about the small pieces of something black that seem to be crushed peel of some seed that can't be found from the inci (and now I am even more sceptical) but you wouldn't notice them at all in action.
Absolutely recommend this. Gives my dry & dull hair the 'WOW'-effect. Shiny smooth hair.

Cleansing Charcoal Face & Body Scrub
Okay so XHC definitely has some magical clay they use on their products. After using this my skin looks not only moistured but like it has re-born.
First I scrub my face and neck thoroughly and leave this on while I do my other shower routine steps. After rinse I welcome a smooth, fresh and moisturized face that feels brand new I could easily say this is in top-3 in 2in1 scrub + mask products that I have ever used. I have become a little lazy when it comes to regular scrubbing but I can only imagine how good my skin would look if I used this twice a week.
Excellent for sensitive skin too because while being super effective this is also super gentle.

Normal price was nowhere to be found. The price range in Primor was 1,5€-2 or 2,5€ for 300-400ml.

Kiko Prime & Fix Refreshing Mist REVIEW

Kiko Prime & Fix Refreshing Mist REVIEW

I have to say I have never unlocked the love for these setting sprays. I mean they don't do anything for me. And I didn't find this one doing anything either. Just a few drops here and there and then it dried. All my friends and the whole internet are hyping these but I feel like they are just a plot from big companies trying to get the money.
I feel like this didn't distribute evenly though, if I have to say something that differs from all the other stuff on the market (to me they have all been the same, so far).

//En ole vieläkään päässyt jyvälle siitä, mikä näissä setting sprayssa viehättää ihmisiä. En päässyt tämänkään avulla. Ne eivät vain yksinkertaisesti tee mitään. Tuntuu vain rahastukselta.
Jos jotain muista vastaavista eriävää olisi sanottava, tämä ei suihkua tasaisesti. Seasta tulee semmoisia isompia pisaroita.
