Hey guys, long time no blog post right? I know, I know, I have been super busy with well LIFE let's say, so I haven't been able to keep up my Monday, Wednesday, Friday routine this week. I'm not sure if I will be going back to that schedule anytime soon, because that is just too much for me right now, so I hope you don't miss me too much. haha I'll try to post once a week on Saturdays hopefully, so if that doesn't change, expect a blog post from me on weekends.
Today, I am talking about the Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Facial Moisturizer & Serum. I have been really into using skincare with Vitamin C in them for a long time, so when I saw these at my drugstore, I was super excited to give them a try.
Moisturizer : the moisturizer comes in a plastic jar packaging. It smells strongly of oranges, but in a very pleasant way. I love the scent, very refreshing and it makes me happy when I smell this. The consistency of this moisturizer is on the thicker side. It's not too thick that it feels uncomfortable when rubbing it onto the skin. It melts right into the skin, very moisturizing. This can be a bit much for warmer weather, so during summer this might be too thick and too moisturizing for me. This is perfect for colder months though, so during winter my skin loves this. My skin gets really dry during winter, and this moisturizer is really helpful for the dryness and well as hydrates. I wouldn't reach for this during summer because I will just sweat it all off so there's no point in using such a thick, moisturizing product to begin with.
Serum : the serum comes in a plastic bottle, with a pump applicator. This smells like oranges as well, but it's a little fake and not really close to the scent of the moisturizer and I don't like it as much. It's consistency is of a thicker liquid, so not as runny like face oils. I think this is okay. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. It's an okay product for me. It sometimes breaks me out but not all the time, so I'm not sure what the deal is. I stopped using it for a while, then started using it again, and I didn't see much of a difference between when I was using it and when I wasn't.
So overall, I like the moisturizer, the serum not that much. If I had to repurchase one it would be the moisturizer. The serum didn't do anything for me other than make me breakouts some of the time. The moisturizer, I really like and love the scent!
