The Avon Anew Skin Reset Plumping Shots.
What Is Inside The Avon Anew Skin Reset Plumping Shots?
The formula is housed in blue ampoules and once you have snapped the top off you can then proceed to apply to the skin (more on that later). The first thing that surprised me was the colour of the watery serum that appears to be blue matching the same colour as its packaging. The serum contains a host of skin replenishing ingredients and these are as follows:
aqua - Solvent for ingredients
glycerin - Helps keep skin healthier by being a skin-identical ingredient, moisturiser and humectant keeping skin hydrated.
propylene glycol - Humectant draws moisture to the skin whilst helping other ingredients penetrate.
pentylene glycol - Emulsion stabilizer, solvent and a broad spectrum antimicrobial whilst also having moisturising properties.
hydroxyethyl urea - Strong Humectant and moisturiser that improves hydration and elasticity of the skin.
phenoxyethanol - Effective Preservative.
hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid - Low molecular weight that hydrates the skin whilst also helping the skin to repair itself by influencing its self-defense.
carbomer - Thickens a formula whilst also helping water and oil ingredients to mix and not separate.
caprylyl glycol - Boosts effectiveness of other preservatives whilst achieving the feeling of softer skin.
thiazolylalanine - Non-Proteogenic amino acid to enhance LOXL-1 in the skin helping to improve the signs of ageing.
sodium hydroxide - Adjusts the pH of a product.
disodium edta - Helps keep the product nicer and stable over the period of time.
urea - Natural moisturising factor that keeps skin plump, elastic, and hydrated whilst also improving the barrier function of the skin.
tris (tetramethylhydroxpiperinol) citrate - UV absorbing (for the product), antistatic, dispersing and emulsifying ingredient.
alcohol denat - Solvent, penetration enhancer, creates cosmetically light formulas, great astringent and antimicrobial.
CI 17200 - Synthetic colourant purple-red colour.
CI 142090 - Colourant that is brilliant blue which is a blue powder and is soluble in water.
How To Use The Avon Anew Skin Reset Plumping Shots?
The ampoules are best to be applied after you have cleansed your skin either morning or night and are really easy to use when slotting one into your skincare routine. Applying as your first product, i was quite surprised how the light serum instantly absorbs into the skin leaving it feeling soft, smooth and looking hydrated whilst you can then proceed with your usual serum (if you wish), moisturiser and sunscreen. I experienced no piling or flaking off from the product and no adverse reactions you can experience with strong ingredients associated with skincare products to see results for example like retinols. The skin feels supple, looks hydrated, whilst appearing perfectly plumped all from applying just a one-a-day ampoule and finishing the 1 week supply. It is suggested by Avon to use once every month to keep the collagen levels high, skin looking plumper and firmer.
