REVIEW:AVON SSS Glutathione Lotion with Marula / April BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge

30 Apr

Our family went out for a swim on a lazy Thursday and though I religiously applied my Nivea SUN Protect and Refresh Invisible Cooling Mist every two hours, I still had a slight bit of tan.

Thankfully, I remembered I have something in my April BDJ Box that can help me. It is the AVON SSS Glutathione Lotion with Marula. 

Product Description

Skin looks and feels renewed and rejuvenated in just 12 hours! Infused with Glutathione, a powerful anti-oxidant, this leaves skin radiantly glowing and more youthful looking. It is a lightweight moisturizer that improves skin’s clarity and makes skin look whiter immediately after the first application. Formulated to help decelerate melanin production and gives dark skin with a fairer skin tone.

Dermatologically tested. 

Direction: Use twice daily. Smooth all over body.

I have been introduced to AVON SSS lotions when I was a kid. My aunts all raved about it, saying that it was effective and has a nice smell. Not so long ago, I have tried a variety of AVON SSS lotions. I don’t apply it as often as I should because I am such a sucker for moisturizers that I end up using what I want at the moment. Oh, SSS stands for Skin-So-Soft, in case you didn’t know.

I was happy to receive a full size of this lotion and would really finish this. For 250ml of product, you only pay 350php or less if you get it from an Avon lady. Avon offers discounts almost monthly!

This was the first lotion I grabbed when we arrived home after the swim. I placed it in the fridge so I can enjoy it more when it is chilled. It served as my after-sun(burnt skin) moisturizer.

The consistency of this lotion wasn’t different with any Avon SSS Lotions I’ve tried. It has this rich, almost-thick consistency but is not heavy on the skin. It is great for every day use because of its lightweight, moisturizing formula. What makes this stand out is that it is infused with Glutathione, a powerful anti-oxidant, that helps control and decelerate melanin production. Also enriched with Marula, Africa’s “miracle oil”,  it deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin.

It helps renew skin dullness and helps lighten dark spots brought about by sun exposure and skin aging. It solves the dryness of my skin and keeps it that way. It is very effective. In just a few days of using this, I noticed that there is visible improvement on my skin’s texture, tone and hydration. It kept my skin looking and feeling healthy, nourished and glowing.

It is also very easy to apply but takes a bit of time to dry up and be absorbed by the skin. I also love the scent that it has which stays for a while. I use this twice a day, morning and night, after I take a shower.

What I Love:

(+) It is from a trusted brand, Avon.

(+) It is infused with Glutathione and Marula that helps control melanin production.

(+) It makes skin soft and smooth.

(+) It makes skin moisturized and hydrated.

(+) It keeps it healthy looking and glowing.

(+) It makes my skin more even-toned.

(+) It works fast. Visible improvement can be seen in just a few days usage.

(+) It has a nice scent to it.

(+) It is lightweight and very easy to apply.

(+) Affordable.

What I wish:

(-) It is quickly absorbed by the skin.

(-) It has SPF.

(-) It is available in leading department stores and not only thru Avon ladies.

I made a day chart wherein I recorded my skin observations daily for 7 days.

Day 1 – Tanned skin it is! Hello to uneven skin tone, too. But it kept my skin from getting dry. 

Day 2 – There was not much change on my skin color but the skin tone has somewhat came even-toned. Soft skin can be felt.  

Day 3 – Slight change can be seen on my skin. My skin felt smoother and softer.

Day 4 – My skin has improved a lot from Day 1. I can also see a gradual decrease in the tan. It made my skin silkier, softer and smoother.

Day 5 – The skin on my whole body seemed to feel renewed and revitalized with daily use.

Day 6 – Hydrated, healthy, glowing skin I can see you now…

Day 7 – Great improvement on my skin! It has kept my skin moisturized, healthy and even-toned. YAY! 

I believe with continued use, it will help my skin achieve its most natural fairness. It will prevent getting sun spots on my skin and keep it healthy and moisturized.  

OVERALL: I highly recommend this product to anyone who wanted to see an improvement on their skin’s texture, tone, smoothness and overall health in a few days time.
