REVIEW: Avon Skin So Soft Winter Lavender Collection

by - February 08, 2018

I have to admit that I'm a person who, when I don't like things, tends to dig her heels in and just not have them. Once upon a time, one of the things that I didn't like was lavender. It just wasn't my thing at all. However, in the past few years I've really developed a serious affection for it because I've genuinely felt the difference in my ability to wind down and relax with the scent of lavender. So I was super, super excited about the Avon Skin So Soft Winter Lavender Collection* and couldn't wait to get it into a nighttime relaxation routine.

The Avon Skin So Soft Winter Lavender Collection* is a three piece set of body care products scented with lavender, bergamot and jasmine. The collection includes their Creamy Body Wash, Body Butter, and Hand Cream in really beautifully designed packaging.

Avon Skin So Soft Winter Lavender Creamy Body Wash
This is a lovely, shimmery body wash that smells really delicious and has a medium density lather. The shimmer in the formula doesn't stick around on the skin and I haven't seen it in my bathtub either, but it's really pretty so I love the inclusion of it. This body wash does a great job of cleaning the skin while leaving it soft without feeling dry or stripped, making it a great option for drier winter skin. I've actually also used this as a bubble bath (as I do sometimes with my more lovely smelling body washes) and it foams up well and fills the room with that really lovely scent. Two thumbs up for this one.

Avon Skin So Soft Winter Lavender Body Butter
This is a really emollient body butter that feels really rich on the skin, but spreads smoothly and sinks in quite well. It leaves the skin feeling really silky and smooth and I find  the hydration really sticks around. If I apply this at night, my skin still feels really hydrated and soft the following morning. While some body butters can be a little too heavy for my personal taste, I really liked the texture and weight of this one and didn't find it to be greasy or sticky. Again, this gets two thumbs up for me, particularly for lavender fans. 

Avon Skin So Soft Winter Lavender  Hand Cream
I'm basically a hand cream junkie and I always - always! - apply hand cream before bed in the winter to try and keep my hands looking and feeling hydrated. I'd say the scent on this is a little bit softer than the other two products, but it's still definitely apparent. I wouldn't say that this is the most rich-in-texture hand cream, but it is nicely hydrating and gets the job done. When first applied, it can feel a little bit greasy and I would probably recommend using this as a night time or around the house hand cream. Overall, of the three products, this is my least favorite but I still quite enjoy it.

I have to admit that I was really kind of surprised at just much I enjoy this set. The products all worked quite well for me and the scent really, really sells it. While lavender might not be a scent that you would typically think of for winter, I really think that this type of scent that makes me think of coziness and comfort and relaxation, which I feel like I most definitely need at this time of year. Definitely going to keep reaching for this!

As always, Avon products are available from a local Avon representative and you can visit or to find one in your area!
