Product review #2 | Avon Cocoa Butter body cream

Women picUnfortunately, I have recurring a problem with dry skin and it gets so bad especially in winter that if not taken care off I can easily be mistake by a snake when it’s shedding its skin (awful!!).

So as much as possible I try to take care of it and admittedly I have tried various types of different swatchproducts. I am always on the look out for the next big body cream and when I come across a good body cream, I have to try it, however funnily enough none of them seem to be finding their way back in my cabinet.

Avon Cocoa Butter (8)This time, it’s up to a new body cream by Avon namely Avon Care Cocoa Butter Body Cream that has a sweet chocolate scent and comes in a 400ml container (other products from this range include a hand cream, lip balm and a multi-purpose cream). This product provides revitalizing moisture thanks to its cocoa butter and vitamin E for that complete nourishment and 24 hour moisturize effect and as an extra bonus it gives the skin a natural glow.

Avon Cocoa Butter (9)Other important ingredients include: Glycerin, Mineral Oil, Dimethicone, Canola oil, Parfum, Methylparaben, Perilla seed oil, Macadamia oil, Grape seed oil, Avocado oil and Olive fruit oil. As you can see, it contains parabens and silicones but it also has lots of natural oils known for their moisturising properties. In addition, based on recent clinical studies it is said that it increases skin moisture by 76% – now that is a percentage I can work with.

One thing I have noticed with great pleasure is the fact that it is fast absorbing and non-greasy which is perfect for me as I always seem to be applying the body cream just before I put my clothes on!. This lotion moisturizes even better than some expensive lotions that I have tried and used and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. As I said it smells of chocolate and I love the clean smell. Bottom line: this lotion keeps me ash-free all day and I can already see it coming back to my cabinet.


I highly recommend this product especially since it is quite affordable, does a good moisturizing job and has a nice scent. Have you tried it yet …. head over the Avon Malta here and you will surely be taken care of in finding the perfect product for you from the vast line available.

Until next time,
