Avon Naturals : Strawberry & Guava Body Lotion

I bought this lil beauty as part of a 'Strawberry' set from an Avon brochure a few campaigns ago. It included Avon Naturals Strawberry shower gel and body lotion, a strawberry sorbet bubble bath (which smells amaze!) plus a cute fuchsia pink nail polish, all for about £5. Bargain! I snapped it up as summer was looming and products with a fruity scent always make me feel summery!

#FruityFresh - AvonNaturalsBodyLotion

As a, dare I say, 'cheap' body lotion, I didn't expect a lot from it.. but as it happened, I tended to reach for my bottle after every bath time! I was pleasantly surprised how much I actually liked it. I'm used to spending a little bit more on my creams and body butters, so was kind of expecting it to be like your average 'gift set' body lotion, you know what I'm getting at, right?! I was wrong. (And its not often I admit that ;) ) It was actually a really nice product to use, as an every day body lotion.

Avon Say...
'Provides 24-hour moisturisation to leave skin feeling soft, supple and delicately scented.'

I applied the Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava Body Lotion daily, after every bath. The lotions consistency was creamy, not at all greasy and applies really well onto my skin. It does seem to take a while to absorb fully into my skin, but that isn't too much of a problem. It does the job as an all over body moisturiser, leaving my skin feeling soft, refreshed and moisturised. I can really tell the difference when I haven't used, or forgot to apply a moisturiser after a bath; my skin can feel quite dry, and cheap, standard body lotions don't seem to moisturise my skin the way I want it to. But I was pretty happy with how this lotion made my skin feel. Avon promises '24-hour moisturisation..' which I beg to differ. Yes, it moisturised my skin for a couple of hours, but I'm not so sure it felt as soft and hydrated for much longer than that. That said, my skin didn't feel overly dry in-between uses. I adored the fruity smell of Strawberries. Avon say it's '..delicately scented' but I actually think it's a pretty intense fragrance. I love bathing before bed, lying on my bed smelling all fruity. The scent lasts a good couple of hours too. I adore the smell, it makes me feel all summery and fresh. The packaging is cute, for an Avon product! ;) I haven't yet used the shower gel that accompanies it, as I prefer using creamier body washes, but I imagine that both used together smells lush!!

Would I recommend it?
Yes, give it a try. For a cheap body lotion, it does a pretty good job and the smell is devine!!

Would I re-purchase?
Yes I think I would. I'm not sure I'd rush to buy a bottle straight away, but if it's ever on offer (which is is quite often), I may snap another one up for my collection.

Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava Body Lotion is available to purchase from your local Avon representative or online at £3 (200ml) - Currently on offer at £1.50 - snap it up now ladies!! 

Have you used this, or any other fruity products you think I'd like??
