Avon naturals lightening papaya and soy milk hand and body lotion


Avon brochure has new products in almost every brochure when it comes to body lotions and shower gels from the Avon naturals range. The formulation of the product inside the bottle is the same, only the fragrance and the wrapper in which the bottle is wrapped differs. I have almost tried all the variants that they have come up with in the past one year. But the only thing that I keep repurchasing is the Avon naturals papaya hand and body lotion. Read the full review to know more about the product.

My experience with the product:

This product comes in the form of lotion that is white in color, comes in a sturdy bottle and with a flip top cap. The consistency of the product is just perfect. Upon application, it is instantly soaked by the skin, leaving it supple and healthy. The fragrance of this lotion is very pleasant and smells really fresh.  This was my go to body lotion during the summers. The skin felt and smelt nice all day without having the need to reapply again. If you have normal skin, then this body lotion will surely work for you. The words in the product claim have been chosen very carefully and I can say that this product is true to its claims. However, I noticed that this did not provide enough moisturization during the winters. I felt the need to reapply as the skin would start to feel dry. This bottle of 250 ml lasted me around a month and little more, say 40 days during the summers. They used to have a tinier version of the bottle which I had used as a hand lotion at some point  and had worked very well as it soaks up instantly. I had to switch to a heavier body lotion during the winters. I would be reviewing that very soon.
