Avon Skin So Soft Signature Silk Whipped body lotion
Hi girls, hope you all doing well. Today I will review another product from Avon. It’s a body lotion from their Skin So Soft range. There are two versions of the Signature silk body lotion-one is the Signature silk Replenishing Hand and Body lotion and the other is this whipped body lotion. I chose this for the summers as I found this very light in texture. Let’s see how the product fares on my chart.
Quantity:- 250 ml
Price:- INR 259/- (I got it at an offer price of INR 199/-)

What Avon says about their product?
Signature Silk Whipped Body Lotion, formulated with the essence of luxurious silk, touches skin with sensual softness. It goes on like a lotion and melts into skin, leaving skin silky smooth with no greasy after-feel. This formula treats skin’s surface, immediately replenishing skin all day long. Skin feels incredibly soft and velvety smooth. Dermatologically-tested.
How to use?
Apply a generous amount all over body, particularly on exposed areas such as arms, shoulders, legs and thighs. Massage in a circular motion onto skin until dry. Use twice daily, morning and night.
The packaging is quite nice. It comes in a sturdy huge plastic bottle with a flap cap. The shape of the bottle is curvy to get a good grip. It’s leak proof and hence can be carried while travelling without fear of leakage.
My take on this product:
The lotion has a whipped cream like consistency. It’s very light in texture. Since my skin all over body (except face) is very dry I found this lotion not very moisturizing. This is best suited during summers to provide hydration to the skin. The skin feels soft and smooth after application. It does not leave any greasy feel. Absorbs into the skin in a jiffy and keeps the skin supple whole day. The fragrance is not over-powering. It has a very mild fragrance which vanished in about 30 minutes or so. I may not recommend this for harsh winters or people with very dry skin. It does not irritate the skin at all. So people with sensitive skin can give this a try too. However, I don’t like the fact that is has no SPF factor. So again you have to use a sunscreen on top of this during summers. For girls with oily skin this can be a great lotion during winters. 🙂
