It’s hard to find the right moisturizer. One that that isn’t too heavy, isn’t too light, isn’t too sticky, works under makeup, works without makeup and is good for all seasons. Oh, and that actually moisturizes. Did I say hard? How about impossible.
Well not so fast. Here comes Avon, yes, that same Avon your mom, grandma and aunt had catalogues of laying around the house. The OG mail-order beauty and fashion brand is still alive and kicking, and they’ve got a hydrating product that is everything you’ve been looking for and more. Technically, it isn’t actually a moisturizer but hear me out.
Avon’s Anew Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum promises “deep hydration” and an “instant 2x moisture increase.” They promise to deliver “a revolutionary combo of power-packed ingredients” that “infuses skin with instant, deep and lasting hydration and defends it from environmental stressors.”
Sounds good, but let’s get real. This is my moisturizer. The one that I use every day. I’ve been through many in my life, and Hydra Fusion is here to stay. Itchy, cracky skin? I’ve had it. No more. The sting of extreme dryness? Gone. Sticky, cakey feeling under makeup? Nah.
The product contains hyaluronic acid and raspberry antioxidant, ingredients known to keep skin youthful and glowing, but let’s keep it simple: Imagine water, but somehow a little thicker. That’s what it feels like. My face feels thoroughly hydrated, but without the greasiness, heaviness and weight of a thicker cream. Spread across clean skin, and the serum makes your skin feel hydrated, fresh…and, well, just right.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Anyone looking for a light but hydrating moisturizer that actually soothes and replenishes the skin without the weight of a heavy cream.
