Some nice Avon Planet Spa things

I always seem to forget about Avon. It used to be easier when my friend was an Avon lady and was always introduced to new things. The other day, I came across by chance an offer where Avon were giving out free delivery to any orders over £5. So thought - why not?

I looked at their Planet Spa range and picked up these:

This goes usually for £4.50, but is now on offer for £2.25. For anyone with dry skin - you need this. My skin gets exceptionally dry during these winter months. As this year the cold is extra crazy, this is one thing that seems help prevent a flaky nose and cheeks. 

The odd thing about this product is that is doesn't actually give a good description of what it does and how to use it. So this is what I do. I use it in the mornings (about twice a week at the moment) when I've had a shower and washed my hair the night before. I massage it onto dry skin and then use a damp sponge to wipe it off. 

The product is pretty thick in consistency as you would expect from Shea butter. Shea butter and ginger are two of my worst smells and this smells pretty strong. But it doesn't linger once wiped off so I'll tolerate it. It also has small exfoliating beads that is great to help wake the skin up in the mornings. It keeps my skin nourished and soft throughout the day. A very pleasant winter find for me.

Dead Sea Minerals Exfoliating Body Scrub
This, I cannot find on the website anymore, but thought I'd mention it again in case they restock. I think I picked it up on offer for under £3 at the time.

It exfoliates really well. I really like using this on my back especially as it scrubs really well. It also doesn't over dry the skin though body lotion is needed afterwards.

Everything I have bought from Avon, I have liked (albeit it's not loads of things) and I'm really liking this Planet Spa range. It just goes to show that the price tag of a product does not necessarily determine how good it can be. Each product cost me under £3 and they have worked really well for me. I can especially see myself picking the All-in-one facial every winter from now on :)

You can have a peruse through their entire Planet spa range here.


  1. That first cream seems ideal for me because my skin has gone from combo to dry during this winter and nothing is fixing it at the moment.

  2. I highly recommend it. I'm not sure if I'm using it correctly but the way I have been, it makes my skin feel so soft without being greasy. Plus its only a couple of quid. Result!

  3. I get allergry very easily, so this soap is ok for my skin?

  4. Dead Sea Minerals Exfoliating Body Scrub - I used the product every bath or shower time for the two weeks, and I must admit, I was very impressed. The product has since run out and I have bought another!

  5. Sabina - my skin is pretty sensitive as well and so far I have no reaction to it (I've been using both products for about three weeks now). I suggest if you do get it, test it out in a small area at first. Also don't rub the facial cleanser too hard as it does have some exfoliating beads.

    Shea Butter - Its one of the best lower priced scrub I've used in ages!
