Firmly in my suitcase ready to go!
After 2 weeks of testing this moisturiser I am now ready to let you know that I love it! I have been using it in place of my day cream and it has been amazing. It’s soft, sily and luxurious, everything you want from a hydration cream.
My skin’s radiance has definitely improved, it is also smoother and it didn’t cause me any spots, hooray! My skin still felt soft in the evening which was great. It acted as a great base for my makeup and helped it last longer.
This hydration cream reinforces the skin’s natural hydration, it’s always best to work with your skin instead of against it. It was really great for dry skin but it doesn’t have an oily texture so it will probably be awesome on all skin types.
What I love most: It is an amazing base for makeup. I’ll be investing in the full size!

I fell in love when I saw this product.
Benefit Fine-One-One has a 3 shades pink champagne, sheer watermelon and soft coral that combined highlight, define and colour your cheeks. Its a beautiful sheer cream that instantly brightens your skin. It can be used all together or individually on cheeks and lips and comes with a handy little tip booklet too.
At first sight I absolutely loved the typical gorgeous Benefit packaging however, it is quite a small item for £23.50 which is a little disappointing. I also adore all the colours together, they’re so beautiful!
The way I like to use it is to just sweep from the rose of my cheek up to my temple along the cheek bone. Alone it is not very vibrant, it is quite a sheer blusher cream which is perfect for natural look during the day but for the evening I use either a MAC Blusher or Benefit box of powder over the top as well.
I love that this product is an all in one, it skips 2 steps for me saving me a few minutes each morning. It’s beautiful matte result also lasts really well all day.
You can also glide it over or pick an individual colour to go over over your lips for a qucik burst of brightness. It is definitely a handbag must-have!
I recommend this product for anyone who wants to add a bit of a pop to their makeup without going over the top.
What I love most: It’s really easy to use and looks natural.
What I like least: It is quite sheer so needs blusher too for evening makeup.

A good day and night cream is a must for any skin care routine
So many people use the same moisturiser day and night and for me this doesn’t give the maximum care for your skin. The skin rejuvenates and repairs over night while you dream away so it’s really important to have a good night cream to help it along. A night cream is a lot heavier than the day cream when your skin does not need so much hydration.
This range from Avon is aimed at the 20 and 30 somethings and claims to improve the brightness of the skin in just 2 weeks. I can vouch for the fact that it does do just this and when I’m not busy road-testing other moisturisers this is the range I use. It also contains a decent SPF 25 UVA/UVB in the day cream which is great! This range leaves my skin beautiful and radiant and I love it.
I also adore the eye cream, it feels really silky and luxurious when applied around the eye area each day and night. I also love the scent of these products, it’s very girly and a little sweet.
They also come in very good size pots that last a long time and they are not too badly priced either not when you consider how long they last. Avon also do an Anew range for every age and skin requirements so if this one is not for you there is definitely one available that it. Contact your local Rep for advice on which to use.
What I love most: The effect they have on my skin
What I like least: It agitates my eyes if I get too close but I do have very sensitive and dry eyes.
