Review: Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava Moisturizing Body Yogurt + quick FOTD

Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava Moisturizing Body Yogurt

This "flavor" has been discontinued. Other "available "flavors" are blackberry & vanilla, peach, and vanilla.

6.00$

The claims:

"A deliciously creamy, lightweight moisturizer fortified with yogurt powder and fruit extracts to soften, smooth and soothe skin. 7.6 fl. oz"

Pros:
  • the scent is divine! I'm a sucker for sweet-smelling products
  • a little goes a long way
  • absorbs quickly
Cons:
  • the texture is a little too watery. I was expecting it to be more consistent - like a yogurt!
  • I was disappointed to see that yogurt powder was the 12th ingredient - after water, glycerin and a bunch of chemical ingredients, including petrolatum
  • I didn't feel it left my skin softer, smoother or soothed 
What I think:

Do not be fooled by the amazing scent of this product, like me! The texture of this body yogurt was way too light for winter use, my skin didn't even feel moisturized.

    2. Aw, man! I love strawberry scented products! I was disappointed to read that it wasn't that moisturizing. I guess The Body Shop has a strawberry Body Butter. I really want to try it out!

      Your make-up looks great, BTW!

      P. S. You and I are both doing Skin MD giveaways with the same deadline. Should we enter one another's contests? LOL! JUST KIDDING!

    9. OMG, that body yogurt is a big fat tub of FAIL. I got sucked into buying one of those a while back and I had the exact same opinion of it as you. Sorry you had to go through that. :(

    10. i love Natural products cos they are really helpful for them who are fed up of using skin products contains chemicals which make skin rough and bad using chemicals again and again when I start using natural products 3 months before I found my skin become so natural so as i have in my young age. Herbal products are really affective make skin more Charismatic.
