Pros:it was a gift

Cons:consistency, odor, ineffective

The Bottom Line: "How you said, the sand would burn my hands
How you said, the sand would burn my feet again"

Seasons require different skin treatment regimens but it seems like, no matter the season, as you get older you require more and more moisture therapy. After living in the Midwest for over 50 years, I am well acquainted in that chalkboard appearance of skin on your arms and legs in the winter, simply awful. Now that I am living in the South, I find that I require moisture, even in the warmer months. Mainly because I refuse to wear shoes unless I am forced, and working in the soil can do the dickens to your hands.

I was delighted to receive this Avon Moisture Therapy because I thought it would be perfect for the dry cracked skin on my hands and feet and the moisture deprived arms and legs. Wrong, and wrong again.

The say
This product is supposed to increase your skin moisture level by 175% as well as protect against chafing, chapping, cracking and windburn.

I say
Phooey!

First I didn’t care for the texture at all. I am extremely texture conscience, can’t help it. This product felt like a cross between slimy and Vaseline. In addition I noticed my skin felt somewhat sticky after application. None of these symptoms seem to last long but I didn’t like the initial contact.

I found the odor somewhat offensive. It wasn’t overpowering or cloying, just not an odor I enjoyed. This was Olive, which isn’t a favorite taste of mine anyway.

It did not, absolutely and no way, solve the myriad of problems I had with my skin. My legs and arms were still so chalky you could write the Gettysburg Address on them; my feet still cracked and sore feeling. It didn’t seem to matter how much or how often I applied this stuff, it didn’t work.

Ingredients
This is hypo-allergenic, hospital tested, suitable for sensitive skin.

Water, mineral oil, propylene glycol, glycerin, glyceryl state, Peg-100 state, aluminum starch octenylsuccinate, steareth-2, oryza sativa bran oil, dimethicone, lanolin oil, steareth-20, squalene, sodium lactate, sodium PCA, urea, lanolin alcohol, lecithin, alanine, glutamine, glycine, histidine, serien, glycine soja oil, soy lecithin, trealose, phytic acid, allantoin, phospholipids, spingolipids, orange roughy oil, benzyl alcohol, choleth-24, ceteth-24, imidazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, carbomer, potassium hydroxide, diethylexyl sodium sulfosuccinate, BHT, fragrance.

Overall impression
I would never purchase this product. It was a gift so I was thankful that I hadn’t wasted my dollars on something so unproductive. Even being backed by the Avon name does not guarantee success. Maybe others would welcome this product. Reviews I read on the Avon website seemed to tout its glories to high heaven. So be it, it simply isn’t for me.

Thanks,
Susi
