Previous Softie: Avon Pores and skin So Gentle

So final weeks submit about Avon appeared to be a reasonably widespread, and by no means being one to let an opportunity to trip a prepare proper off the rails get away, I made a decision to go forth and truly get among the Pores and skin-So-Gentle that I initially thought was going to be within the small bottle.

So I bid on a bigger one, and received.

I assume that I’ve a nebulous grip at finest on sizes. I learn that this was a six-ounce bottle and naturally it (as I’m doing as I sort this) I get that six ounces is definitely a fairly respectable quantity in case you are going for one thing like physique oil in an ornamental dispenser. It’s an opulent quantity of Eau de Cologne and an virtually vulgar quantity of fragrance. Alternatively it will be a parsimonious serving of Prosecco, so take what you’ll from that. I used to be stunned and happy, and the kitschy bottle is great. I’m simply glad I didn’t pop for the 20 ouncer of SSS I spied on Amazon.

So what’s the stuff like? Effectively, I’m not positive that my impressions shouldn’t be taken with a number of caveats: the bottle isn’t new and though it was within the field (and there’s an elements checklist) I do not know if it was made in 2019 or 1920- maybe one of you might chime in? I’m pondering possible 1990’s? The juice itself is evident as a bell. The elements checklist are isopropyl myristate and isopropyl palmitate and mineral oil, alcohol, perfume and some different tongue-twisters. Shea butter it isn’t. It’s actually from again within the day when “Higher Residing By means of Chemical substances” was the order of the day, however I’m simply placing it on pores and skin, not cooking with it or gargling. It looks as if extra of an old-fashioned skin-sealant than a contemporary moisturiser. The type you placed on to let your pores and skin replenish it’s pure oils. Frankly I’m unconvinced that almost all of those trendy merchandise with their miracle elements are rather more efficacious- I do know there are issues like liquid nicotine which can be contact poisons, however I don’t actually know of any contact nutritional vitamins. However chacun à son goût. It additionally has a definite if not disagreeable scent to it: A peppery citrus-peel scent that faces a bit to a barely musky lanolin scent, just like the stuff in old-style moisturizers. I prefer it, however I believe it would intrude with no matter I placed on that I actually wish to scent like. If I had been a protracted, scorching tub within the night form of individual (Which can solely occur with looto winnings, the acquisition of my own residence, and changing the swimming pool into my tub) I might see myself slathering this on my freshly-exfoliated self. Since I’m a bathe within the AM form of man, I’ll content material myself with utilizing it on my arms and arms after the rigorous washings I give them a pair instances a day.

So, do you utilize Pores and skin So Gentle? Have you ever moved on from it, or is it one thing that you simply by no means used in any respect? I’d love to listen to from you within the feedback.
