Avon Moisture Therapy Intensive Treatment Collection Review

There's always bonus' to being an Avon consultant, like picking up this 5 piece set for $8.99! Just so I don't have to repeat it for everything, these products are unscented!

 Body Lotion: This lotion is very runny and sticky. I prefer much thicker lotions. Being for extra dry skin, I wasn't very impressed. It seemed to be to be a basic lotion with nothing too special to offer. I find a few hours after application I feel dry again. I also don't like the sticky, tacky feeling of it.

Extra Strength Cream: Now this is a cream for me! With a much thicker consistency, it was easier to apply. I can apply this before bed and wake up moisturized still! It's for extra dry skin, but great for a good, deep moisturizing. I especially like it before bed, you can skin lotion in the morning. Another great thing, it's been helping the spot of eczeme on my shoulder so well!

Hand Cream: I'm actually on my 3rd bottle of this! I find it has a consistency like Vasoline, but non-greasy and smooth. It definitely leaves hands moisturized and feeling silky. What I love most, is that unlike some hand creams, you don't feel dry a few hours later. It does however take quite a while to fully absorb, but I personally love the feeling like I just put it on.

Lip Ointment SPF 15: First of all, I LOVE SPF lip anything! I found this to have a consistency like the hand cream, quite a like Vasoline. It's very slick and greasy feeling, but works so incredibly! My lips were very, very dry before using this, and are gorgeous now! I love putting it on a few hours before lipstick, because it gives me gorgeous lips, and acts quite like a primer as it lasts a long, long time. Also, hair doesn't stick to it!

Moisturizing Lip Treatment SPF 15: This product worked mildly okay, but was basically just a stick version of the above lip ointment, just not as long lasting or good. Felt the same, didn't stick, just didn't work as well.

Over all, I will be buying the Extra Strength Creme, Hand Cream and Lip Ointment again for sure. I do however think the Body Lotion and Lip Treatment stick are a waste of money, much better products out there, even in this line!

Avon Foot Works Thermal Exfoliating Scrub Review

Unlike some, I have pretty great feet. They aren't shaped the cutest, but are very soft. But with summertime coming, I need to get them in prime condition. I walk around bare foot a lot, which some times causes callus', so I have work extra hard to keep them nice. I've been buying quite a few foot products for this reason.

I was super intrigued to try this foot scrub, as it warms as soon as you rub, and is supposed to remove rough, dry dead skin and leave feet soft and smooth.

I tried this out the day it arrived a few weeks ago, and have used about 1/3 of it already. At first, I thought the tube would be easy, but it's difficult to squeeze out, especially after the first use, as it hardens in the cap (I just run it under hot water quick). The scrubbing particles are very small, but powerful! I also immediately felt the warming sensation which felt great and soothing, but it only lasts for about 20 seconds. Don't be worried though, because 20 seconds of rubbing this on your feet is all you need! 

I really enjoyed this foot scrub. The warming sensation, the softness of the scrub and how fast it works. It's great to have your feet looking like you just had a pedicure in 20 seconds! I will definitely keep purchasing this product.

LUSH Butterfly Ball Ballistic

On my last trip to LUSH (which I've been doing almost every two weeks), I was sadly informed that I had JUST missed their Pinata Party, where everyone got to take a wack at Donkey Oaty for a free gift. Luckily, the girls are FABULOUS, and gave me a free surprise gift to take home - Butterfly Ball Ballistic. I was super excited and intrigued, especially over a product that was unavailable for purchase in the store. Being the fantastic mommy I am, I let my 3 year old daughter enjoy it!

From first impressions, I was in love. Half pink, half purple with flowers erupting from it, I couldn't wait to try it out!

 As it floated and fizzed, it filled the whole bathroom with gorgeous scents of jasmine! The more it fizzed, the more cornflower and larkspur petals came out! I also loved the pink and white foam, it reminded me lots of Mrs. Whippy! I had to hop in with her! The flowers and ylang ylang oil left my skin so smooth and hydrated, I just loved the silkiness of the water!

As time passed, the fizzing stopped, and the bubbles cleared, we were left with gorgeous pink water, filled with flowers! As we played around in the water, we found the best little surprise floating around - a sparkly purple butterfly!

This was a fantastic bath bomb that we both enjoyed! From start to finish, it was wonderful and relaxing! I really wish they carried these in the store, but it was a refreshing and more enjoyable experience knowing it was a one time treat! Haylee and I are total LUSH addicts, as soon as she see's me coming home with my big bag, she asks for her "bath eggs".


Hey! I've been so busy lately, I haven't really had time to make any posts. I figured I'd stop by and give a nail of the day! These nails were insipired by Do Not Refreeze's blog post.
