Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow- Daily Body Lotion, Flawless Legs Cream Lotion, Absolute Glow Gel and Body Scrub


I am a pale-idite. A sun hiding, SPF 65 wearing, sunglasses sporting, hang out in the shade pale-ington.
There. I said it. Unlike some, I am not ashamed of my paleness. I am what I am and what I am is pale.

That said I do understand those that long for a bit of a sun-kissed glow. It's undeniably sexy when done right, and well, we all know how bad it can look when done wrong (ie. that always attractive oompa loompa orange hue.) I've just never taken the plunge into the world of anything tan. Until now.

Over the past few weeks I've been experimenting with Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow collection. There may still be snow on the ground, but it's never too early to get a little glow on, is it?

Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow Daily Body Moisturizer is one of those neat ( I think the concept is neat) moisturizers that gradually gives you a faux glow. This version claims to take 4 days, but I think I began to see results sooner. As I mentioned, I'm not one to seek out products like this, and have never used them in the past, but I actually really like this. I have the version for fair skin tones (also available in medium) and I like the hint of glow that it gives me. It also moisturizes quite nicely, absorbs quickly, has a really nice scent and a very light dose of golden mica for a hint of shimmer.

Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow Flawless Legs Cream Lotion is for those of you who want an instant glow. This moisturizing cream instantly gives you a natural looking golden glow without being sticky on skin and completely colourfast. Although I have the version for medium skin tones (also available in fair) the tone of this is customizable based on how much you apply and not too dark on my pale skin. It applies smoothly without even having to try, so there you don't have to worry about the dreaded sunless tanner zebra stripe look.

Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow Absolute Glow Gel is a moisturizing gel that not only instantly feels cool and soothing on skin but hydrates and firms skin while providing a sun kissed glow. The texture of this is so neat, it's a gel that sort of melts on your skin and quickly absorbs. 

Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow Body Scrub is an a great little scrub that not only exfoliates but also cleanses. It looks quite creamy when you first squeeze it out of the tube, but it has a nice does of scrubiness once you get it going. It lathers a bit and has a great, light scent- I'm not 100% but I think I almost detect coconut! This is a great way to prep skin before using any of the other Satin Glow products.

Overall, there are some great products in this range. I know I'll be using the Daily Body Moisturizer to give my pale skin tone a bit of a boost. Do you do the faux tan thing? What type of products do you love?
