Anyway, no matter what the weather or temperature, I'm the sort of person who still applies any type of moisturizer on the face and body. I am just hardwired that way. Of course, I do switch to lighter formulations for summer, and my oh my, Avon really hit a home run with their new Skin So Soft Fast Hydration line.
If you hate applying moisturizers because of that "coated feeling", then you'll be happy to know that Fast Hydration Body Gel Lotion comes in a gel form, and has a lightweight and cooling texture that instantly hydrates skin on contact. It's highly spreadable and is virtually undetectable after a couple of seconds.
The Body Wash is equally summer-perfect as well. Although I am really more of a bar of soap kind of girl, using this has changed the way I shower everyday. The Body Wash is low-foaming and does not contain any SLS/SLES, rinses clean and leaves me with soft, moisturized skin.
Both have a refreshing scent which to my nose is a delightful mixture of watermelon + cucumber + mint, while Lia says it reminds her of plumeria.
Avon released a similar product in early 2000 which was later phased out (see above photo). Glad to know that they tweaked the formulation a bit to make it more spreadable and then brought it back! It's such a genius product which I hope will encourage more people to use lotion no matter what the weather.
If you're looking for a year-round lotion that isn't tacky nor sticky, this is your best bet! For very dry skin conditions, please note that you may need a more emollient moisturizer and this would be suitable for day use instead. Just top with your fave sunblock and you're good to go!
PS: You can also get the Avon SSS Fast Hydration Body Gel Lotion in the Perfectly Pristine Glamourbox. Hurry, the boxes come in limited quantities!
