My thoughts on Avant Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturizer
I received this in one of my subscription boxes and I have tried another product from the brand before (not liking it though) and as expensive as this one. So I was really curious to try it and see what my skin thought about it.
When looking at their web page this product comes in a jar instead of a tube and I really don’t know why they send the same amount in a tube instead. Maybe they changed the packaging. I do prefer a tube instead of a jar, due to hygienic reasons. But I can agree that a jar looks more expensive.
When I read the instructions for this, yes instructions. I really thought what a heck, this is not a massage cream it is a moisturizer. But simply I think by adding the instructions the product seem more high end and that it is a thought behind it. I did not use it like this. I used it like a regular moisturizer. If I massage my face I do that with an oil or a massage cream instead (often with a Jade roller).
The cream is really lightweight and white in color. When applying it, it absorbs really fast into my skin without leaving it feeling sticky or greasy. Avant Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturizer is scented. But it has one of those weird scents that are neither amazing or disgusting. I would rather have this product without scents, since it isn’t nice or bad.
As for its moisturizing properties, it is simply amazing. It is one of my favorite moisturizers for sure (that is not Korean). I really would love to use it for a longer time to try it out during a longer time. I will not use the full tube at this moment, since I really want to try it out during the drier seasons to see if it acts the same. My skin is super dry and finding a moisturizer that is amazing can be quite difficult.
When I use Avant Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturizer my skin actually looks really nice and feels moisturized during the whole day (this is not a common feeling for me)
As for the claims
As for the claims of this product I really cant say anything about it. All of the claims are almost impossible to show. There are so many factors that effects the skin and since you cant compare what your skin would like that same time without the cream (as a control). How can one tell for sure.
What you eat, drink, environment, pollution and a lot of other things effects your skin every day.
The only thing one can really say for sure is your own experience of your skin. If you think that your skin looks tighter, and less wrinkled that is perfect. There are so many times I try a product and I really cant say why my skin looks better or feels better, it just does. And that is the feeling I am going for.
But I have a huge problem with it and that is the cost of it. It is so expensive. I always live on a budget so I really could never buy it on a regular basis. If you have amazing income or really want to spend a huge amount of money on one product. This might be for you. But if you are like me and simply cant do that, there are a lot of other great moisturizers out there. Send me an email, or check out my favorites on the blog and you will find other great moisturizers for dry skin.
Normally when the cost of a product is this high, my grading will be lowered. But this is simply so great and if you really have dry skin and the money to spend, this will be worth it (but only if money isn’t an issue). As for me, I will probably never try it again though.
