Review*: Avon Nutra Effects Active Seed Complex Hydration face creams

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Hello ladies, 
I have another long overdue review for you today.
I really hope you don't mind that I've been posting about products that have been sent to me a bit more recently, but I'm extremely behind on posting these reviews due to the fact that after my Lasik eye surgery, I avoided wearing anything on my face and after that, I just got really busy with other things.

Pozdravljene punce,
danes se ponovno vračam z oceno, ki bi jo morala napisati že kar nekaj časa nazaj, a se je zaradi laserske operacije oči (in prepovedi nošenja ličil / ostalih izdelkov v bližini oči), ter drugih obveznosti vse skupaj malo zamaknilo. 
Upam tudi, da vas ne moti preveč, da v zadnjem času pišem malo več objav o izdelkih, ki jih nisem kupila sama.

Avon, Nutra Effects, Hydration, creams
 I received the Avon Nutra Effects Active Seed Complex Hydration daily cream & Hydration gel cream back in April, but I started using them in May and I really wanted to test them out properly before posting the review.
The Nutra Effects range is Avon's newest skin care addition and the products are based on active seed complex (Chia seeds, Strelitzia seeds and Pomegranate seeds) that are full of omega 3 & 6, vitamins and antioxidants. This line is also hypo-allergenic, allergy tested, and free of parabens & dyes which makes is suitable for sensitive skin (which mine definitely is).
As I've mentioned, I got the two creams from the Hydration line, but there's also the Radiance line (consists of the Daily cream, Renewing night cream and Tinted moisturiser, currently 4,90€, read Sara's review), Ageless Advanced 45+ line (with Multi action daily & night cream, currently 8,90€), Ageless 35+ line (with Multi action daily & night cream that are based on Pomegranate seeds, currently 6,90€) and Balance line (with Daily cream and Gel cream that're oil-free & mattifying, currently 6,90€, read Meteo Beauty's review).
There's also a Mattifying toner for combination to oily skin and a Self-foaming face wash for normal to combination skin (both currently 4,90€).

Že v aprilu sem od Avona prejela Hydration vlažilno dnevno in vlažilno & osvežilno gel kremo iz njihove nove linije Nutra Effects, a sem ju začela uporabljati šele v maju in sem ju želela dobro preizkusiti pred samo objavo.
Nova linija imenovana Nutra Effects temelji na aktivnem kompleksu semen (Chia semena, semena strelicije ter semena granatnega jabolka), ki so nenadomestljiv vir dragocenih hranil - omega 3 in 6, vitaminov in antioksidantov. Ta kombinacija navlaži in nahrani kožo, s čimer ji povrne čudovit in zdrav videz.
Ta linije prav tako ne vsebuje parabenov in barvil, je alergološko testirana in primerna za občutljivo kožo (kar moja definitivno je).
Poleg Hydration linije obstajajo še Radiance linija (ki vsebuje dnevno kremo za izenačeno polt, nočno kremo in obarvano vlažilno kremo. tukaj si lahko preberete Sarino oceno. Trenutno lahko vsako izmed teh kupite za 4,90€), Ageless Advanced 45+ linija (Dnevna in Multiaktivna nočna krema, 8,90€), Ageless 35+ linija (Multiaktivna dnevna in nočna krema s semeni granatnega jabolka, 6,90€) in Balance linija (Dnevna krema in matirajoča & vlažilna gel-krema s Chia semeni in matirajočimi sestavinami, 6,90€, ocena Meteo Beauty).
Poleg tega pa znotraj Nutra Effects obstajata še matirajoči in osvežilni tonik, ter osvežilna čistilna pena za obraz (oba 4,90€).

Avon, Nutra Effects, Hydration, packaging
First off, I love the packaging.
Both creams come in a 50ml glass jar with blue details, plastic lids and plastic protectors on the inside. I think the glass packaging makes them look elegant and expensive, although this means they're not very travel-friendly.
Currently they retails for 6,90€ (regular price 7,90€) which is a true bargain, especially since I think both of them will last me for quite a while, as I only need a tiny bit to cover my entire face.

Prva stvar, ki mi je pri teh kremah všeč, je sama embalaža. Obe kremi se nahajata v 50ml steklenih posodicah, s plastičnih pokrovom in plastično zaščito v notranjosti.
Menim, da embalaža izgleda zelo elegantno in veliko dražje, je pa res, da ni najbolj primerna za potovanja.
Obe kremi sta v trenutnem katalogu na voljo za 6,90€ (redna cena je 7,90€). Cena je zares dostopna, sploh ker bom obe kremi verjetno imela kar nekaj časa, saj za nanos po celotnem obrazu potrebujem res majhno količino izdelka.

Avon, Nutra Effects, Hydration, Daily cream
 The Hydration creams are based on Chia seeds that supposedly help give your skin a gorgeous & healthy appearance with an intense moisture. They're designed to help fortify the skin's barrier, helping to protect against the drying effects of wind, cold and dry air, while locking in moisture all day long.
The Hydration Daily Cream has an SPF 15 which is great, especially now in the Summer.
It has a fresh scent that I can't really describe but I'm not very fond of it, although luckily it's not very strong or offensive.
The cream itself is white, but it has a very lightweight consistency. It feels really nice on the skin, but it does take a tiny bit longer to sink into my skin and it leaves a bit of a sticky feeling on the touch.
It also gives your skin that healthy & fresh glow, which is the reason I like to use it on days when I'm not wearing any make-up, as I do find it a bit too moisturising/ shiny for me to use under make-up (keep in mind that I do have combination to oily skin). Hopefully you'll be able to see the glow it gives to my skin on the photos below. 
I do think I'll get more use out of it in the colder months, when my skin gets a bit drier & needs more hydration.

Obe kremi iz Hydration linije sta zasnovani z Active Seed kompleksom in Chia semeni, kar pomaga kožo ohranjati gladko po videzu in občutku, ter ji zagotavlja stalno vlaženje. Prav tako pomaga okrepiti pregrado kože, zaščiti kožo pred vetrom, mrazom in suhim zrakom, medtem ko ''zaklene'' vlago v koži za ves dan. 
Hydration vlažilna dnevna krema ima faktor 15, kar je super, sploh zdaj v tej vročini. Ima svež vonj, ki ga ne znam najbolje opisati, a mi ni preveč všeč. Na srečo ni premočan in se ga na koži ne vonja več.
Dnevna krema je bele barve in zelo lahke teksture. Potrebuje nekaj časa, da se vpije v mojo mešano do mastno kožo, a na koži pusti prijeten občutek, kljub temu, da koža na dotik ostane malce lepljiva.
Moji koži podari tisti zdrav sijaj (upam, da ga lahko opazite na fotografijah zgoraj), kar je glavni razlog, da kremo najraje uporabljam takrat, ko ne nosim ličil. Kot podlaga za ličila se na moji koži ne obnese preveč dobro, saj jo preveč navlaži oz. izgleda preveč sijoče za moj okus.
Ker trenutno zopet nosim ličila bolj pogosto, in ker smo še vedno deležni zelo visokih temperatur, menim, da bom to kremo bolj redno uporabljala predvsem v hladnejših mesecih, ko moja koža potrebuje malce več navlaženosti.

Avon, Nutra Effects, Hydration, Gel cream
 The Hydration Gel Cream doesn't have an SPF, but it's definitely my favourite from the two.
It has an amazing fresh, kinda fruity & floral scent that I absolutely adore. It also has a gel-like consistency that is even more lightweight & thin than with the Daily cream.  It kinda feels like you're putting water on your skin, and it also has a bit of a cooling effect.
This one sink into my skin immediately without leaving any residue, gives it a satin matte finish and with that, creating a great base for make-up. I also noticed that it hides my pores a tiny bit, which is always a nice bonus.
This one is a true winner for me, and I've been using it almost every single day. I occasionally use it at night time as well, now that's so hot outside, and I really don't want to put on a thick cream (which my usual night cream definitely is) and it works great as a night-time moisturiser as well - it hydrates my skin yet feels like I'm not wearing anything on my face.

Hydration vlažilna & osvežilna gel-krema pa sicer ne vsebuje zaščitnega faktorja, a je definitivno moj favorit izmed obeh krem.
Ima krasen, svež, nekoliko sadni & cvetlični vonj, ki ga obožujem. Njena gel tekstura je še bolj lahka kot tekstura vlažilne dnevne kreme. Pravzaprav imam ob nanosu le-te občutek kot da na kožo nanašam vodo.  
Tudi ta na koži pusti prijeten, rahlo hladilen občutek, in ji podari zmatiran/satenast videz. Poleg tega se takoj vpije v kožo, opazila pa sem tudi, da rahlo zakrije moje pore, kar pomeni, da se ta krema super obnese tudi kot podlaga za ličila.
Če vzamem v zakup vse te dejavnike, je Hydration vlažilna & osvežilna gel-krema v mojih očeh nedvomni zmagovalec, kar še dodatno potrdi dejstvo, da sem jo v zadnjih dveh mescih uporabljala skoraj vsak dan, pred kratkim pa sem jo začela uporabljati še zvečer, saj moji koži nudi dovolj navlaženosti, brez da bi imela občutek, da imam karkoli na obrazu. 

Although I haven't noticed any major changes in my skin since using these two face creams, I still think they're good, affordable, fuss-free creams for everyone with dry to normal skin (you can also read Petra's review), and the Gel one even for combination to oily skin.
Both of them leave my skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated, and I would definitely agree with the claim that they're suitable for sensitive skin as none of them broke me out or cause any other irritations.
Because I've been liking the Gel cream so much, I now definitely want to try the Gel cream from the Balance line as well.

Čeprav ob uporabi teh dveh krem na moji koži nisem opazila nobenih ogromnih sprememb menim, da sta obe kremi dobri, cenovno dostopni in primerni za vse, ki imajo suho in normalno kožo (tukaj je še Petrina objava, ki jo je napisala v času, ko je njena koža bila bolj suha). Vlažilna & osvežilna gel-krema pa se uspešno obnese tudi na mešani do mastni koži (vsaj na moji se je).
Obe kremi naredita kožo gladko, mehko in navlaženo, prav tako pa se nedvomno strinjam tudi s trditvijo, da sta primerni za občutljivo kožo, saj mi nista povzročili nobenih mozoljev ali drugih iritacij.
Ker mi je vlažilna & osvežilna gel krema tako všeč, bom v bližnji prihodnosti najverjetneje preizkusila še njihovo Balance matirajočo & vlažilno gel kremo, ki bo mojemu tipu kože verjetno še bolje ustrezala.

Have you tried anything from Avon's Nutra Effects range yet?

*The products were sent to me to review. I didn't buy them with my money. But that didn't and won't ever affect my opinion about the products in any way. The review is based on my personal experience with the producst.*

  1. Avon seems to make some pretty great skincare and makeup products. I haven't used them in years, maybe a decade, but I'm been interested in exploring the brand once again. Great review, thanks for all of the details. :-)

  2. Hvala za omembo :). Meni sta ti kremi res odlični. Ne boš verjela ampak moja kremna verzija je že na koncu :D. Res jo veliko uporabljam. Zdaj v teh vročih dneh jo mešam z gel verzijo, ker se mi zdi da je gel še vedno premalo vlažilna zame. Vsekakor moram naročit novo stekleničko kremne verzije in cena je res zadovoljiva :).
